Chapter 20: Daxter Owns A Bar?

Danny's POV

Daxter. Owns. A Bar. How he is even ALLOWED to own one!?

We were back in the city now. Haven City's actually a really nice city and if it wasn't for the fact that Amity Park needed me, I'd probably move here.

The funny thing about being a hero is that people like to throw parties when you win. I should be used to this, right? Yeah, not really. A party was the last thing I expected when we returned. Especially considering people were sitting around drinking... alcohol? I wasn't really sure and I didn't really wanna know either.

I looked over at Jak who seemed to be drinking a questionable substance out of his glass as well. I shook my head before thinking back to how he reacted earlier. I know I kind've exploded but I just didn't like knowing he'd absorbed a substance so dangerous. I don't think he considered us friends but I sure saw us as acquaintances and I worry about acquaintances just as much as my friends and family. I think it came with protecting so many people every day.

I sighed, just as Keira came over with a glass. I blinked at her.

"Don't worry, it's just soda." She said with a teasing edge to her voice.

I chuckled and accepted the glass. "Thanks." I said, staring into it. Truth be told, Jak's reaction confused me more than anything. Maybe because I flipped out? I didn't mean too. I bit my lip.

"Hey, what's wrong? You're supposed to be celebrating." She said, genuine concern in her tone.

"Oh. Um... nothin' just thinking." I said

"Does it have to do with what happened earlier?"

"I..." I sighed at that. She'd hit the nail right on the head. "A little..."

I watched her for a moment, she seemed to be trying to figure out how to voice her thoughts. "He's just... stubborn." She said after a minute.

"Heh, obviously..." I said, a light teasing edge to my tone. I knew he was stubborn but I felt like I might've offended him. I didn't wanna leave Precursia on bad terms. I mean after this, I doubt I'll see him again...

"Ever since he was a little kid, he could channel every single type of eco there was." She said

I nodded, letting her go on.

"And that stuff... looks like eco. It doesn't look like what you called ecto-plasm." She went on.

I sighed. "I guess we never really explained what it looked like, huh?" I said

"No, not really. I know you said your girlfriend warned him but... he's stubborn." She emphasized the word stubborn. I smiled slightly at that before looking at my hands.

"Right. I guess one of us should've explained that. I'm sorry. There's was just so much going on..." I shook my head, feeling bad now.

"It's okay, you saved him. There's nothing to apologize for."

"Heh. Yet, I feel like I should."

She sighed. "Danny, I'm sure he's forgotten all about the blow-up." She said

"You think so?"

She nodded. "Yeah. He's capable of holding grudges but after everything he's been through, something this minor wouldn't bother him this long."

"I guess you'd know that better then a lot of people, huh?" I said with a small smile.

"Heh. Yeah..." She said

I smiled a bit more. "Well okay, I just don't wanna leave on bad terms, that's all. But if you think he's forgotten..." I shrugged

She nodded again and then went off to do something else.

"Suddenly, ecto-breath cloned himself twenty times, my boy Jak here and Danny were scared, but I wasn't." I heard Daxter say, continuing on. I shook my head and went over to Jak.

"Does he always do this after your adventures?" I asked

"Yeah" He said, chuckling before taking a sip of his drink.

I laughed. "Wow..." I said, continuing to laugh. Just make yourself look amazing Dax.

Jak sighed. "I guess you have to head home soon?" He asked

I blinked at the sigh, not expecting it. "Yeah... kind've. I almost certain mom and dad are starting to worry..." I shook my head. Parents, you know?

He nodded. "Hey... thanks...for the help." He said, somewhat hesitantly.

"No problem. I deal with ghosts so often." I shrugged. It was like second nature to me by now.

He nodded again, looking over at Onin who was... was she drunk!? She seemed to be swaying, her fingers going everywhere. I didn't think I'd ever see a sight like this. Pecker, her bird/monkey thing, was inching towards us. I couldn't help but snicker at that.

Jak looked at Pecker. "What is she saying?" He asked

"You don't want to know." Pecker answered

I snickered more at that.

After a few minutes, it seemed like Onin was focused on us. She was waving her hands around and a thick blue fog started surrounding us. What the heck was going on!?

Jak smiled one of those tough guy grins at me. "Guess I'll see you around, Danny." He said

"Um, yeah." I said. That must've been his way of saying goodbye.

After that the blue fog became way too thick, to where we couldn't see anything. Once it cleared, we were back in Amity Park. Just like that. I looked around and squinted my eyes from how bright the sun was. It seemed to be the same time as when we left. As strange as that is. I guess I didn't have to worry about mom and dad worrying.

Suddenly, I remembered Skulker and started searching for him. Although, I didn't find him anywhere, a smile came across my lips.

What an interesting adventure!
