Alessandra:So...since i gave you a hair tie with beads after redoing your braid...what does that mean?
Alessandra: Vadik, I...i had no idea. I just fixed your braid without knowing it had such a meaning.
- Alessandra:So i see that you must have been awfully busy, taking part in all those battles.
Vadik: We orcs are the best. We never lost a battle no matter the cost and circumstances we've faced.
Alessandra:I take it that you orcs are indeed brave.
Vadik: Indeed we are.
