”Doesn’t look like either of us got it easy, that’s for sure…” Jack’s comment caused Kujo to smirk as he finished his cigarette, watching the smoke drift away into the dark sky. Our worlds are similar, huh? It was a little bit of a let down, compared to what M'Lyn's world sounded like—but he supposed that not all worlds could be drastically different. Not like here. Glancing around the dark forest around them, Kujo hadn’t remembered a time he’d seen so many stars and trees. Cricket chirping offered a faint background symphony to accompany the breeze that would roll through and rustle the leaves.
He wasn’t used to the absence of sounds—this world felt so isolated. ”Not used to socializing?” Though Jack’s question was rhetorical, Kujo grimaced with a tsk as he crossed his arms, glancing at the guy from the corner of his eye. ”Give me a break—people’re just more hassle than they're worth.” As Jack chuckled and Kujo sulked, it seemed the two had certainly come into a comfortable dynamic. ”There’s certainly traits we share […] I guess M’Lyn was right in that topic?” Glancing over to the woman sleeping in the grass, Kujo sighed with a humored exasperation. ”She’s too smart for her own good—her and Alice both.” Not that it was a bad thing. At least they don’t show off… Glancing at Jack, Kujo’s eyebrows raised a bit. ”So—she finally taught you magic, huh?” It had seemed they had used their time in the forests well. ”You’re a lot better with that weird sword, too.” His growth had been quick—in the short time Kujo had been separated from him, Jack had seemed to harness powerful Thunder magic as well as the oddity with the guns…
”Tch—though it seems like there's still a lot we gotta figure out with it.” It was always one thing after another. The weight of sleep was beginning to prickle Kujo’s shoulders, causing him to take another silent scan around the forest. It had been quiet and still—though that worried him. If the creature from before returned… His hand subconsciously rested on the pocket that held the battered and ripped purple hat the odd creature had worn. Something bothered him a bout it.
”You should get some rest.” Standing up, Kujo stretched a bit before sliding his hands in his pockets and turning to Jack. ”I’ll wake up M’Lyn for the next watch after I check the area a few more times.” If his memory was correct, Alice was still tracking the thing, too. Waving a hand in goodbye, Kujo began to walk away from the clearing and towards the dark forest. He had enjoyed his conversation with Jack...but if they kept sitting and talking all night he was sure to fall asleep. Alice 's gotta sleep sometime, too. They couldn't just rely on her surveillance alone.
