”Unluckily for you, I ain’t the type to leave people behind!” Jack’s comment caused Kujo to roll his eyes as he stood outside the doorway, hands in his pockets. Why’d I know he was gonna say that? Sighing a bit as he listened to Jack’s proposal, Kujo was thankful for the idea of splitting up. ”Say, since Sleepy’s here safe and sound, couldn’t you show Kujo the way to those mines you spoke of?” Jolting with a daunted look, Kujo turned around in the doorway with a look of disbelief. ”Tch—don’t push the dead weight on me!” With M’Lyn discussing the possible mentoring opportunities, Kujo grumbled but silenced.
He’d have to put up with babysitting. If I don’t, Jack can't learn as easily… That'd mean Jack wouldn't get stronger, or more efficient with that bizarre weapon... Crossing his arms with a sigh, Kujo shook his head as he admitted a swift defeat from the miqo’te. A momentary burden to lessen one in the long term. He’d have to remind himself of that on the way to the mines. ”The place might be big, but we can easily regroup later.” The communication devices all of them wore on their ears were connected to the Almira, where Alice watched with keen eyes. ”Then…shall we?” The two other exited, Jack looking more eager than usual. Kujo stared with only mild contempt after the two, turning to look over his shoulder.
”Ha! Guess we should get goin’ too!” Happy waddled out of the cottage, chuckling along behind Kujo as the tall man groaned. ”Just don’t talk so much…” Pulling out a new looking pack of cigarettes, the man clad in lavender followed the short jovial man into the forest. ”Well…time to get this mission going! Leave the communications to me!” Alice’s voice chirped over Kujo’s headset.
Tch—some mission. Can’t I catch a break?
The forest sprawled out in many directions. If having seen, M’Lyn and Jack would notice Kujo heading in a different direction than where they had emerged from, led by Happy all too unenthusiastically. Soon after their exiting, the two would be alone in the clearing, countless foot-paths sprawling through tall grass and underbrush. To the left was a mostly overgrown path, trees so thick hardly any sunlight came through. Gnarled roots and throned branches snaked and snarled in wait. Up ahead in the middle was the area they had seen Kujo enter, a dirt road marked with countless boot tracks allowing an easy road to travel by foot.
To the right would be an only slightly overgrown path, tall grass and small weeds being the only obstacles. It seemed the three had taken none of these paths initially, having come through the thickets and overgrowth in the area around the clearing. Typical, of otherworldly travelers, really. SNOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! A gentle gust rustled through the trees around the clearing, a faint echo being heard from the far distance, out of sight.
It almost sounded like…thunder—though the bright blue sky above only showed a few harmless clouds, far too light to hold water. It seemed to come from deeper in the forest, to the right.
