Trails in the Sky
Prologue: A Father's Love, a New Beginning
After Cassius Bright left for the Erebonian Empire, Estelle and Joshua are his replacements for the jobs he left behind in the Rolent Bracer Guild. One of the jobs is to exterminate a pest who are eating up the crops at the Perzel Farm so Estelle and Joshua head to the farm.There they meet an old friend of theirs from Sunday School, Tio, who works at the Perzel Farm as her occupation. She directs them to talk to her father for more info on the job who just came back from delivering vegetables to a client. Her father, Franz Perzel, gives them info that the pests are only out at night so he offers Estelle and Joshua dinner to wait for nightfall.
They agree and they stay until dusk. While waiting, Joshua plays with the two kids at the farm, Chere and Will, where they happily love Joshua and look up to him. Meanwhile Estelle and Tio are having fun talking up to a point where they talk about how Joshua is a very charming young man. Tio then tries to imply to Estelle about her feelings towards Joshua, which Estelle angrily denies. Soon, night falls and the duo head out to guard the farm from the monsters.
After doing some guard duty, Estelle and Joshua spot the Crop Munchers and they follow the monsters to battle them. After successfully apprehending them, they get the rest of the Perzels up to see the culprits. Joshua wishes to exterminate the monsters as told by the guild, but Estelle doesn't wish to kill the monsters as she believes they learn their lesson. The Perzels then allow the monsters to live and Estelle scare off the monsters.
Estelle and Joshua stay the rest of the night at the Perzels' home. Here Joshua gives some foreshadowing towards how ruthless he is and how he basically has a "broken heart" where Estelle loudly disagrees with and says that Joshua is very kind and thoughtful.
After staying the night, Estelle and Joshua head back to the Rolent Bracer Guild to report their results to Aina.
