Kujo nodded silently to Jack’s comment about them tackling the ‘icky stuff’. ”Even if they became a Heartless, you still pity them?” Kujo found himself between Jack and M’Lyn’s opinions—he, like Jack, did pity anyone who ended up with such a fate. Like M’Lyn though, Kujo would be willing to do the ‘icky stuff’ (as Jack so phrased it) as an act of mercy for one with such a doomed future. It’d be worse to let ‘em live like that… Regardless of how the trio thought—they all came to an agreement rather easily. Jack could try saving the dwarf, and if it failed, he and M’Lyn would provide them a swift end.
”I’m wondering…would doing the same thing as you did in San Fransokyo help never someone before they became Heartless?” It was a good question, one Kujo mulled over as Jack and the Miqo’te talked it over. M’Lyn’s right…it could just ‘get rid’ of it like any other Heartless… Like Jack, Kujo couldn’t help but feel like the odd weapon wouldn’t be so straightforward. What if it didn’t do anything to the Heartless, though? If it was more about ‘walling out’ the Heartless and less about destroying them, then perhaps Jack’s odd blade really could change people’s fates. Exactly how it could do that was a different story, but one Kujo figured wouldn't be answered here and now.
For a moment there was silence among the three as all seemed to dwell on their thoughts. ”Tch—whatever.” Turning away from the other two to face the path ahead, Kujo shoved his hands into his pockets as he began to walk deeper into the dark forest. ”I’ve got my resolve. Just try your thing and don’t sweat the rest, Jack.” It was useless to spend time wondering about it all—much like Jack had said, they needed information to make a sound guess. They lacked knowledge of pretty much any kind around Jack’s odd new weapon—the only way for them to learn was through trial and error.
Emerging from the thickets of the woods after some time of uneventful walking, Kujo couldn’t help but grimace. At this point in, the rotting smell had only grew worse, amplifying once the forest finally opened up and spread out to reveal a marsh-like swamp. All around was mucky water, broiling and bubbling as the gnarled and horrid trees spread out to reveal mushy grey patches of land and thickets of thorned bushes and dark shadows. Thankfully, large lily-pads littered the swampy area, creating paths of sorts for the trio to walk across, as the forest continued on the other side. All around hung mossy and decaying damp wood, bark sloughing off from the trees nearest the water and into the muck to form a stew ripe for the bugs that soared through the heavy and stale air.
”Can’t I catch a break?” He wasn’t the biggest ‘nature’ person, growing up in a hyper-modernized city. All of this wasn’t helping. Stepping onto the lily-pad like pathway that gave and rocked beneath his feet, ignoring the fact he’d have to clean his sneakers when they got back to the ship, Kujo felt a familiar presence once he had made his way out onto the water. Whoosh! Glancing at the emerging Heartless with contempt, the man scanned the area. ”Figures.” Reaching up and pressing the button on the comm device, Kujo decided to rely on Alice once more for ease.
”Alice—anything yet?” He wanted to find the large one fast—if Jack couldn’t aid the dwarf back to their original state…well, he preferred to get his half of the task out of the way sooner rather than later. As the Heartless began to swarm around the trio, some winged while others walked on the swaying and rocking platform, Kujo readied himself, his body glowing with a faint purple aura as his eyes began to change from emerald green into an ever expanding starry field.
