It was about time that Karina returned. From what she could overhear from where she was, the game was about ended and it was time for her to depart. She looked at the clothes she had gotten for herself, then looked at the black coat. "Sorry Lea, it looks like I wasn't who you needed here after all. It is time for me to keep walking my own path." Ditching the jacket, Karina dawned a old beat up red cape, something that seemed to have found it's way through the realm of illusions. "I won't be caught that weak again, I will prove it to everyone." She mumbled as she made sure to move her recorder this time to her knew outfit, holding it tight for a moment before letting go, her finger moving the touch the red gem of the necklace that she wore, a present from Beuce shortly after the first large scale heartless battle. Finally she was ready to return. Spoiler Walking back up to where she had left Shiro and Arctus shortly before, Karina seemed to be walking taller, shoulders back and head held high. She gave the gifts she got a squeeze in her pocket before getting close enough to face Shiro and what he had to say. It was indeed time to go, but first to choose a new leader. Stepping down to where everyone else was waiting, she approached Koa, ignoring Arctus' request of who to make leader. "Koa! I am trusting you to look after this group of misfits now. But don't worry you won't be alone, I called in an old acquaintance to help out. She should be a lot of help leading, or an-" "Acquaintance? I took you in when you had nothing and that is all we are?" A female voice said from behind as she approached sword sheathed at her side as she pulled Karina to the side. "You know I can't stay for long, what if he returns." "He isn't going to return any time soon, he hasn't in the last five years, why would he now?" "I don't know but I know he is still out there and my brothe-" "Yes, you told me already. If he somehow shows up give him hell you aren't a kid anymore. I am trusting you wilt these people. They are good people, they are strong, and so are you." With that Dawn felt a warmth fill her body, but Karina was left shivering for a moment, pulling her cloak tighter around her before forcing herself to face the others, cutting off any more of Dawn's protests. "As you all know I have to leave, Koa is in charge now, respect him, and Dawn is here to aid you in whatever ways she can. Stay safe and don't make me drag myself back to save your sorry asses, got it?" Karina instructed everyone before turning and walking back to Lynn and Arctus. "Guess it is time we head off, Destiny Islands it is then. Lets go." Karina said without a second glance beck to Dawn, or any of the other friends she was about to leave behind. She would walk away with confidence even if she had none. She was just going to fulfill a promise after all.
