(またも後付けで理由を付け足していく。本当は軍記物語と源為朝が好きなのだが、自分に話せる範囲でなんとか説明しなければと、身振り手振りを交えて小学生のように戦を表現)Because I like story around that era. There was battle, Genji,… Genji battled against Heishi. Finally Genji won against Heishi, and Minamotono Yoritomo was the leader of Genji.(なぜかfightやwarという単語が浮かばず、battle一本で押し切ってしまった)

B:Why do you want to become guide?
