Watching the events unfold, Kujo’s eyes glared with deeper mistrust after seeing the odd weapon return to Jack on its own. The hell? Did it have a mind of its own? The very thought of a sentient weapon unsettled him. ”I…I genuinely have no explanation for that…” M’Lyn seemed just as lost for words as he was. Happy stood quietly nearby, having brought the spilled chair upright, rocking back and forth on his heels. It was clear he had no idea what was going on between the three. ”Still…a pair of guns?” Jack seemed in disbelief, though no longer seemed to outwardly doubt them or believe they were pranking him. It was a start. ”Gotta wonder what that was about…” Turning from the two, facing the door that led out of the Cottage and back into the Clearing, Kujo slipped his hands into his pockets.
”Wonder about it on the move. We’re almost outta daylight.” The golden light spilling through the windows of the cozy home had continued to grow faint, a deep red and pink setting in. Soon the sun would set—and if this world worked anything like his own, Kujo figured the Heartless would only get stronger and more frequent throughout the forest during nighttime. Turning to look at Happy, the dwarf seemed to shrink under the tall man’s gaze. ”Where haven’t we checked?” He took a step towards the smaller dwarf, who immediately took a step back out of reflex. The usual jovial smile wavered for just a moment before Happy chuckled and shook his head. Walking past Kujo and glancing out the window, the short bearded man pointed out.
”Well—we checked the Mine, the Swamp…you guys came from the Forest…” For a moment, Happy crossed his arms and tapped a foot, trying to remember. ”Aha! Ha ha!” Chuckling and clapping his hands to his rotund gut, Happy seemed proud of himself as he beamed. ”The Flower Garden! It’s close by, but I don’t think anyone’s checked there yet!” Pointing through the window, Happy motioned for the others to look. ”It’s through the path on the right, you’ll know its the right one if you find a small bridge and a lovely river!” Enthusiastic, Happy grabbed onto Kujo’s pant leg, looking up at the tall man with a bright smile. ”I’m sure you’ll find at least one of them there!”
Nodding a bit, Kujo turned to the others. ”Well? It’s the only lead we got. You ready?” They’d have to be fast, of course. Who knew what kind of Heartless were lurking in the coming night. If Jack or M'Lyn needed time to rest, Kujo planned on simply exploring it by himself. How dangerous could a 'flower garden' be, anyway?
