- Nale ◀ ▶ (as Elan ◀ ▶)

Nale: I can see that I'm not really interrupting anything too important, so if you'll indulge me, I have a few words to say.
- Panel 2
Nale: After almost being killed by my cunningly clever and devilishly handsome twin brother, Nale, I find that I am looking at everything in a different light.
Nale: Everything, including you, Haley.
- Panel 3
Nale: I don't know how I never noticed how beautiful you are before.
Nale: It probably has something to do with my overpowering mental defects and my annoyingly childish persona.
Nale hands the flowers to Haley.
- Panel 4
Nale: Isn't it time we stopped playing these games?
Nale: The secret looks, the denials, the Bluff checks that say, "No", when we both mean, "Yes"?
- Panel 5
Nale: We're both adults, and I'm tired of taking 5-foot steps around one another when we should be charging ahead together.
Nale: I intend to take advantage of our delay to rectify that.
- Panel 6
Nale: Shhhh—don't speak. Don't spoil this moment with words.
- Panel 7
Nale: Just join me for dinner this evening. I promise it will be everything you ever secretly wanted.
- Panel 8
Nale: And if it's not too forward of me, I purchased something for you to wear other than your old leather armor.
