You see, a long time ago, a friend of mine gave this mask to me when I was scared, as a way to cheer me up. ... I do not need it much anymore, so I thought maybe you would like to have it.
[She can feel the urge to ramble swell in her chest - explaining how it's a popular mask in Hyrule and it represents kindness towards animals and isn't it cute? - but she bites her tongue and waits for the child's reply.]
