You only heard an announcement right?" she paused, "I probably shouldn't be the one to say this... knowing how wrong I can be, but there is still hope, there is always some kind of hope. Even if it all looks as if your day... week... month of even your entire life has gone to hell, you can still find something..."
"Whether you find it through a a friend, a book, someone you love-- it doesn't matter. You just can't drop it because you had a really bad day." she paused again, "I know... it will hurt when you find out the specifics of your home, and of your parents... it'll hurt really really bad if you do find out they are."
"But... I think it's best that you hold onto that small sliver of hope that they are okay, that by some miracle of the Goddess, that they were unscathed. I won't deny you your emotions, since... your day's been horrible." she explained.
"Feel free to let it all out. But please... just try and think positively-- there's tons of outcomes to be had. But who's to say this is a worst case scenario..?" she questioned, leaning forward, she gave Emilia a hug, "We'll all be here for you, no matter what the outcome may be. We're part of your family too, you know?"
"...h-how the hell do you think I keep sane?" Emilia asked, looking up a bit again. Her crying was nearly stopped at this point. "I know you guys are like my family. ...even if I lose everything, I have you all. That's why I won't let anyone harm any of you... ever." she replied, her smile looking a bit more genuine at this point.
"...it's just really hard to be optomistic when they don't even give you any room to hope. ...but, I suppose I can try... maybe with both your and Leyka's advice, I can get through this." she said, trying to be a bit more optomistic. Her voice still sounded rather sad, but there was also some happiness to it. "It really doesn't help that this house kept on and on. I think that's kinda... what broke me finally. If this happened any other day, I wouldn't be so affected, but... it hurts when it feels like the house you were about to call home doesn't want you. Haha.." she laughed bitterly. "Whatever, Leyka says to ignore it." she added.
"But, again... thank you. I think... I should be fine for a little while." Emilia said with gratitude. "...y'know. I'm really glad I met you. If I didn't, I wouldn't of come to the school. I wouldn't of ever learned how to use my magic. I wouldn't have met Rin. I probably wouldn't of even met Leyka. Most importantly, I don't think I would of had friends...no, family to help me through something like this... thanks..." she said with a smile, returning the hug. After a couple moments, she released. "...alright, maybe we should get back. I... really don't want anyone to worry about us..." she suggested.
"...oh, and one last thing, while we're alone. About the room, and Leyka. ...I hate to admit it, but you're right." she said with a somewhat happy, and thoughtful look. "...now, c'mon."
