Dedicated to Marthdoingmath!
Imagine you’re a stud. You have your pick of Burmecians and you go for the athletic platinum-blonde hottie you meet in the bar. You try to leave the next morning, but she keeps insisting on making you pancakes…
After a couple of months, you find out a few unflattering details about her. She’s a complete lush, super aggressive, a bit unsure of herself, and smothering you with unwanted affection. You miss your old life. You want more adventures. You need to escape. But how? That’s it! A “peace-keeping mission”…
Freya: Sir Fratley, do you still insist on going on your journey?
Fratley: Yes… Please understand, Freya. Right now, Burmecia is at peace, while other nations are slowly but surely gaining power. I don’t even know if my spear alone is enough to protect Burmecia… …which is precisely why I must go out into the world.
Freya: Sir Fratley…I don’t think I can live on my own—not without you.
Fratley: Freya, you’re going to be fine. Trust your strength… and have faith in your destiny. Once I complete my journey around the world, I will return to Burmecia.
Freya: Then promise me, one more time, that you will return.
Fratley: I promise.
Except, you don’t. You’re high-tailing it out of there! What’s the time-frame for this mission? Where’s the schedule of tours? Who appointed you for this mission? Are you an ambassador? One-man army? Spy? Who cares, you’re free!
Apparently, Sir Fratley was very good to Freya. His nickname was “Iron-Tail” if you know what I mean.
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Too bad Freya is really clingy. She turns into a professional private detective to find him. After only two years of his mission, she decided he should’ve been home by now. Who knows how long should take. Who cares, right? Fratley didn’t even write to her.
Freya: Fratley… You never came back… You’ve left me with nothing except rumors of your death. I couldn’t believe it! I still won’t believe it! Never. Not until I witness proof of your death with my own eyes. And I will travel across the world forever if I must…
Zidane: Are you alright?
Freya: Yes. I was just thinking… about the past…
Zidane: …You still can’t get over him, huh?
Much to Zidane’s dismay of getting some tail, Freya constantly talks about him to herself. When they find him, of course, Freya pours herself out to him like a crazy lady:
Freya: Sir Fratley, I… I have missed you so much… I began my search for you immediately after you left Burmecia. Where have you been all these years…? To what corners of the world have you traveled? My dear Fratley… I climbed the highest mountains only to hear rumors of your victories… I searched the deepest valleys only to find your footsteps. But I never found you. And in the end, I heard something… Something unbearable!
Freya, like most stage-5 clingers, has abandonment issues. They usually have to be in a relationship to feel whole, have boundary problems, trust issues and constantly feel lonely. Remember her quote:
“To be forgotten is worse than death itself”?
She died a little inside when he forgot about her, I’m sure…
And all this time he thought he came to the rescue of another hot chick rat. Uh oh, the Burmecian jigs up! Now what? Well, he pretends not to know her (obviously embarrassed).
Fratley: Freya, you say? I believe this is the first time we have met…
Freya: What…did you just say?
Fratley: I’m sorry, but I cannot remember you for the life of me…
Freya: Y-You jest! You cannot have forgotten me! It’s me, Freya! Freya of Burmecia!!
Fratley: I am sorry…
Freya then comes to the conclusion Sir Fratley has amnesia! It has to be amnesia, he wouldn’t just forget about her, right? And how would she know that? Oh well, Fratley just goes with it.
Sir Fratley, after feeling remorse, promises to make their relationship work. Why would anyone “make it work” with someone they claim not to know? Because his grand plan failed. She trapped him like a rat. Game over, Fratley. Game over.
