Karon's PL: 40,000Zhida's PL: 5,000The two ogres had been on Earth for a little while now, but were no further along in their search. The trail, it seemed, had run dry. They had no idea if their quarry was even still on Earth, but there was no evidence he had left, either. It was as if he'd disappeared, like a ghost. Funny, that.
Karon and Zhida currently standing outside in some tiny, dusty village in the west, leaned against the side of a building. The colorful duo had received some odd looks from the locals, but some stern return glances from Karon had them left alone. The blue ogre was slumped against the wall with his sunglasses on, which made it hard for Zhida to figure out exactly what he was doing as she peered up at him. Was he people watching? Deep in thought? Sleeping? He was remarkably good at secretly napping with those glasses on. Zhida sighed and pulled her OniPhone out of her pocket. These dead ends were frustrating, but she had to trust that Karon knew what he was doing, even though she doubted that more and more with each day.
Out of boredom, Zhida started scrolling through her messages. It wasn't long before one caught her eye. It was over a year old now, but it was the most recent from the contact: her older cousin, Daruma. He'd gone to Earth on a mission to restore the Yemma Squad, and no one in the family had heard from him since. With everything that had been going on with her internship, it had slipped her mind. Now, she was looking down at the glowing screen with the words good luck! I'm rooting for you!!! shining back at her, accompanied by a rainbow of emojis. A sheepish thank you;;; was the reply. That was no good! She had to see how Daruma was doing now. She quickly tapped a new message into her phone:hey Daruma! Guess what planet I'm on?? lol how's the squad doing? Do you guys have a base? Let me know where ur at, I'll come visit!!!
While she waited for her phone to buzz with a reply, she tugged on Karon's sleeve. The older ogre startled and knocked his glasses askew. Yep, he'd definitely been napping. Zhida tugged on his sleeve more urgently, "Mister Karon! Since we don't seem to be...well...doing much right now, can I go visit my cousin? He's here on Earth, and I haven't seen him in ages." She looked up at him and gave her best sad puppy eyes.
