She and Hitomi had been walking for quite a bit, and while she hadn't been at the place in awhile, she was pretty sure they were on the right path. She had let go of Hitomi's hand, but only because she had to jog up ahead to see if she was right about the path ahead of them. She then twirled back and grinned at Hitomi.
"Alright, I'm pretty sure I haven't gotten us lost now!" she said as her hands went up behind her head. She instantly winced and let out a yelp. "Agh! Right. Still wounded..."
She gave Hitomi a sheepish smile.
Despite how things had gone earlier, Tala seemed to have regained most of her energy and enthusiasm. The walk had given her a bit of time to clear her thoughts, and now she had to admit she was genuinely excited. This was perhaps the closest she had ever gotten to fully forming a plan and she had someone with her, too!
Heck, now Hitomi could back her up if the old fox was being difficult. That reminded her...
"I should warn you though," she said, still smiling, "Last time I saw her, she was a liiiiiittle out of it. But I'm guessing that's what happens when you're all cooped up in a place like that and smoke and drink your brains out."
You talk as if you're some young hot stuff yourself, Tala, a voice said in the back of her head. Mostly in Jim's voice. She scowled at herself.
Hey! I'm smoking! she defended.
Putting her imaginary argument away in her head, she returned to speaking to Hitomi.
"Do you have any questions before we go?"
