???: Hey! Get up already!
Dia: Mmm… [slowly wakes up] Eduardo?
Eduardo: Yeah, it’s me. Now get up. You start working today.
Dia: I kind of figured that… [yawns and stretches] So where do I start?
Eduardo: You start by meeting me at the helm in thirty seconds. [leaves]
Dia: … Yeesh, so demanding…
Dia: Yo! Eduardo! [meets him]
Eduardo: [shoves a mop in her face] Clean this area right now.
Dia: [takes it] Yessir! [salutes]
Eduardo: And don’t salute me. I’m not an officer.
Dia: [while cleaning] Yeah, but you’re more senior here on this ship than me, aren’t you? That means you’re my superior. And it’s kind of fun, too! [smiles and hums while working]
Eduardo: … You’re a strange one.
Dia: Heh, maybe. [goes back to working]
Dia's Voice: After that we mostly kept to ourselves with the only exception being Eduardo yelling at me. Man, he’s scary… but he’s kind of cute in a way.
Eduardo: [once she’s done] [shocked] I must say, you do good work.
Dia: Eh heh, you think? ^^; Thanks! I like working, and I hate doing a half-assed job.
Eduardo: [smiles] That’s good. You’ll stay alive longer.
Dia: Were you seriously planning on killing me?
Eduardo: Go help Nathan in the kitchen now.
Dia: Wha- oh! Okay!
Dia: Na~atha~an! [walks into the kitchen] Oh good! You’re here! [smiles] Eduardo sent me to help you out.
Nathan: Is that so… [pause] Can you use a knife?
Dia: Like a cooking knife? Sure. What do you need me to do?
Nathan: [hands her a knife] Peel those potatoes.
Dia: On it! [working hard] [after a while] Hey, can you hand me- [suddenly, the ship rolls] Whoa! [looses her footing, but quickly regains it] That was close. Anyways, what was I saying? Oh yeah- … What are you staring at me for like that?
Nathan: Your finger.
Dia: Wha-? [looks at it] Oh, the knife must have slipped. [picks up the knife] Darn, I should be more careful.
Nathan: You should go see Doc.
Dia: I’ll be fine. It’s just a scratch. [licks it]
Nathan: … cavewoman.
Dia: Hey! Hurtful!
Nathan: [pulls out his sickle-and-chain] Go see Doc now.
Dia: Okay!!! [runs out]
Dia: [thinking] Is it just me or does everyone here seem to be quick to draw their weapons?!?!? [runs into someone and staggers backwards] Sorry about that- Oh! Ed!
Eduardo: [pulls out his gun] Who you callin’ Ed???
Dia: Sorry! [puts up her hands] It’s a force of habit!!
Eduardo: …You’re injured.
Dia: Eh? Yeah. It’s nothing much but Nathan still kicked me out of the kitchen until I saw Christopher. I was on my way there when I ran into you.
Eduardo: [takes her hand and stares at her wound]
Eduardo: Do you like gentle men like Christopher?
Dia: Excuse me?
Eduardo: [looking at her] Or do you prefer cool guys like Nathan?
Dia: What? Why does it matter?
Eduardo: I don’t want any funny business on this ship, ya hear?
Dia: Funny- okay, okay. I get it. Yeesh, not like that was gonna happen anyways. Now if you’ll excuse me, [walks on past him] I’d like to get back to work but I can’t if I don’t see Christopher. Later!
Dia: [walking into Christopher’s room] Christopher! You busy?
Christopher: Nope. Not at all. What can I do you for?
Dia: [shows him her finger] Nate kicked me out of the kitchen until I saw you about this tiny cut.
Christopher: Is that so? Well, in that case, [finds a bandage and puts it on her finger] Here. You can go back to working now.
Dia: Thanks! [remembering] Oh yeah! Out of curiosity, do you think any of the guys will care if I call them by a nickname?
Christopher: A nickname?
Dia: Yeah! I mean, I’d call them one by habit anyways, so I was just wondering if it’d offend anyone.
Christopher: Eduardo, mostly. Possibly Russell too… but no one else that I can think of.
Dia: Awesome! Thanks! ^^
Christopher: So you plan on calling everyone a nickname?
Dia: Well… Captain and Eduardo aside, yes. Is that so much of a problem?
Christopher: [smiles] No. It’s just unusual. We always call each other by our names.
Dia: Huh… well, thanks again, Chris! [winks and leaves]
