[Te fiti Island]
Seeing Ina warp in, Ghost stiffened up a little as he started looking somewhere else to keep himself from being any more distracted now that she's back with the group.
"How are we doing?" they heard her ask, "Everyone okay?"
Spectre smiled as he shook out the last bit of seawater from his ears. "Well aren't you just a happy little ball of sunshine. And judging by the looks of the group, I'd say that we're relatively ok. I hope Spirit and Shadow weren't making you feel uncomfortable while you were with them."
"We're all alright, I think." They heard Saros reply.
After confirming that everyone was back on their feet, Ghost and Spectre regrouped and managed to overhear the conversation between Susan, Jynn and Saros about climbing, then apparently finding a lazier way to get up the mountain. "Everyone group up" Jynn requested, making Spectre and Ghost stand closer together. obvious that they were already a group. "Anyone else wanna group with us?" Spectre politely asked, "the more the merrier as the saying goes!" Ghost meanwhile followed Jynn's gaze and upon seeing the claw marks, realized that climbing the mountain wasn't such an odd idea after all. "We'll follow you then, Jynn."
[Meanwhile, back on the gummi ship...]
After watching Ina warp away, Shadow was trying his best to keep watch of the students on the distant island, but even with the highest powered optics of the ship engaged, the students were at best two or three pixels high. The scout grumbled in annoyance, then decided that he should be doing something else than complaining as switched a nearby monitor to mirror his buddy's screen. Spirit was doing his best to remember what his pal Ghost did when it came to repairing the gummi ship. He couldn't remember exactly the steps that the keyblader did, and he definitely didn't want to radio him in to ask; there was no way he was gonna admit to not being smart enough to handle the ship. Shadow sat there quietly amused as he watched the spectacle of Spirit stumbling through and occasionally backing out of several interfaces and menus. After a few minutes, a wire silhouette of the ship with various sections in colors of red, yellow or green came into view with some really serious sounding words on the side.
"Saw you struggling there, man." Shadow teased.
"It's been a while, ok?" Spirit defended, "and the interface isn't that friendly. Anyways, I'm gonna try repairs on this ship and fix the red areas. You keep a lookout around the ship, and yell if anything happens."
Spirit got out of the captain's seat and started making his way to a footlocker in the main area of the ship. "by the way, Ina said she counted 12 heartless. What's your score?"
"I'm gonna go with zero?"
"What?! You're meaning to tell me that a girl with no training on this ship bagged more heartless than a guy who is?!"
"In my defense, I was targeting something big under the waves. And I'm pretty sure it's still out there."
There was a long, uneasy pause between the two as the implications sank in. Spirit nodded slowly while pursing his lips. "Yeah. Definitely keep a lookout then..."
