Sym, confused at the sudden attention, looked back and forth from Terry to her cousin. The girl had doubted that anyone would have listened to what she had to say, and boy had she been wrong. Now she was in a conversation with two people. . . about a suggestion that she had no idea about. A piece of her mind laughed at Sym for being surprised, since she had spoken so that others would listen, but the rest simply shrugged.
"I don't know how to get in. . . we can only use the airship if it's unmarked, since if we were known as SeeD's we'd be shot outta the air before we could think. Maybe trick them, say we're on some kind of diplomatic mission. I don't know much, but I know that we sure as hell can't say we're with SeeD," Sym whispered to both men, her eyes looking into both of theirs in turn. She knew that she could trust them, her heart told her so.
Gone wanted to go back home to Esthar, he hadn’t been there in a long while.
"What's this about Esthar veichles? It's a pity they had to dump the ship Gaiea hijacked...Would've been bloody useful," Col said.
“It would have been useful.” Gone shrugged, “But we wouldn’t have been able to keep it long enough to use it. Adel would’ve attacked the Garden right away and that wouldn’t do any good at all.”
Gone overheard Sym talking with the guy with the freaky snake voice, Terry he believed, and Dan. He didn’t feel too bad about butting in.
“Well, love, flying an unmarked airship will get us about as close to Esthar airspace as once that screams SeeD. Airports are kinda like docks, a military dictatorship wouldn’t let an unmarked or unaffiliated boat dock, and an airport wouldn’t let them land. Our best bet would be to pass ourselves off as an Estharian airship.” Gone said grinning again.
‘Wow, I’m impressed. You do have a brain inside that pretty little head of yours.’ Arianrhod said condescendingly.
"Good thinking, Sym And from what Col tells me, they dumped the airship they retrieved the Sapphire on. How dumb are they?" Dan asked coolly, taking out a cigarette and lighting it. Blaze's eyes widened at Dan as if he was committing a felony.
"WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING!?!?!" She screamed and started to cough. She snatched the cigarette from Dan's grasp and threw it on the floor, stomping on it over and over. "Trying to kill us before we can even get to Esthar? Stop making my lungs bleed." She seethed. "I don't give a @#%$ if you want to poison yourself but don't let me breathe in your filth."
She turned to the others. "We could always fly to a location near esthar and find a different means of transportation from there."
