He had been trying to avoid it for some time but it was getting harder to put of it off any longer, their current resources were all but exhausted in the construction of their new home. They would need to move above the water to collect more resources or they would have to stop all his current projects, this included new housing for all the refugees. He finally relented and allowed his people to mine one of the nearby islands as long as he stayed with them, he refused to let them out of his sights just yet. They were all ex World trade fleet after all and not all would be happy to let of of the old ways of violence, a habit they could no longer afford have here on earth. Gathering as much of their equipment that they could he quickly spearheaded the team that went out in search of resources, the motley crew of troops and workers not inspiring confidence in the Acrosian.
It was not until a few hours later that they found what their were looking for as they flew over a island near their home, them metal deposits where deep but they could be gathered after some effort. It would take a few days to reach it though meaning they would be exposed for several days for anyone flying over, a event that seemed rare enough out here. It seemed that the humans did not spend a lot of time traveling anywhere with a road, a fact that he hoped would work in his favor. Turning to Jek he silently nodded as the man returned to the workers, the young man shouting out orders as soon as he landed."Alright get those drills up by tonight! We want to be in and out before the earthlings know where here! That means double time!" his voiced echoed out around the island. Garruk was glad the man had come to oversee the operation but he himself was unsure if it was a good idea for both of them to be above land like this, if both leaders got in trouble he was sure the fleet would no doubt face a internal crisis over the next leader. Still it could not be helped at the moment and he hoped Greisha could hold down the fort till they got back, the old veteran was no doubt able but she lacked the charisma Jek did. With a sigh he stayed at the highest point on the island and watched for planes just in case.
He hated all this watching as it gave the Acrosian way to much time to think, way to much time to doubt himself and his recent choices. Rather then simply wait and do nothing he decided he would do some basic training while he kept a lookout. At least this way he would not have to keep himself company as time rolled on slowly. Still in his true form the Acrosian began to practice his ki attacks or rather focusing on controlling them better as he forced them to move as he willed them. The small orbs of purple ki the size of a orange circling all around him like a small shield ready to attack anyone that got to close, each one glowing brightly in the night as tried to stay focused on the task at hand.
