The fresh air, cool winds, gentle waves, and steamy hot sun was the first thing Shohei found notable about Crescent Island just from looking at it from afar. He had never been this far from home before, and he wasn't exactly open to new experiences, people, and places. He was a tad insecure. But that insecurity melted away as the boat crashed into the sands of the shore in the midst of Enola teasing him. He only clicked his tongue and pulled the hoodie off of his head, walking over to where Zan was, who was pitifully sailing the cramped boat.
He peaked inside, Zan was wearing a white T-shirt and black cap with tan shorts. He had been chipper this whole trip, perhaps it was because he was hogging up all the shade. While Shohei reluctantly sat in the heat for the longest time. He was angered already. But, deciding not to start a pointless disagreement before they touched the island, he poked his head back into the heat and walked on the deck. Everyone seemed to avoid one another, according to Shohei's observations. Sinon and him rarely ever talked, unless he was ordering him to do something. And even then, they never truly had casual conversations. It was Enola who directly engaged with him in the first place.
Enola herself had been wearing her finest grin the whole trip. She always wielded the most optimism of the Leviathans. Taking chances and creating opportunities best for everyone. And she was most notably the only Leviathan he really engaged with. May it be on jobs, chores, or occasionally when he came across her or vice versa.
With Taraki's sudden disappearance, Shohei had no choice but to turn the other cheek. He didn't have the capacity to go out searching Fiore for a guy like him. Or any guy, Shohei had officially decided. But, coming across someone who needed sources, Seikatsu joined the team. His name was the only information Shohei had really pried out of him when they first met. The mysterious man isolated himself from the quiet group, seeming lost in thought every time Shohei shot him a glance. He wore dark clothing and spoke little. And with his hood covering his face and curtaining his expressions with a dark shadow, he had never seemed as approachable like the others. It wasn't like Shohei held personal interest in the mystery man, but for his safety, something about him had to be revealed in the period of this trip. He was determined to at least get to see his face.
Hakumi was something else. He had seen her occasionally, and knows nothing about her. But he was certain that even if she was apart of the team, she had her distance with everyone if he has seen her so little. As shameful as it was, truth be told, it goes without saying.
But altogether, the Leviathans were distant teammates. Enola brightened the atmosphere at times but even the marks on her body told a story too dark to tell. It seems like everyone had secrets. Though the trip to Crescent Island was meant for a getaway for the Leviathans, it would also by the Island that flips the pages of this team's story.
Shohei stepped off of the surface, relieved to be surrounded by land rather than water. He was never seasick, but after a long period of time being on the waters, it was just flat out exhausting!
"Alright, kiddos! Off we go! Get your bags, and I'll tie the boat!" Zan had announced from the background, doing as he said he would. Grabbing thick rope and tying it to the nearest pole of wood he could find.
Enola, complimenting the scenery, he couldn't help but look at it too. In awe, trees brushed up against other trees, making a soothing rustling noise as a cool wind chilled his cheeks. "Nothing special." Shohei shrugged with lidded eyes, in response to Enola's question. It was a long, hesitating pause before he answered, so it may be that his lie was obvious.
A few minutes later, Zan came rushing over to the group with bags hanging off his arms and shoulders. He had planned the whole trip itself, so he would be leading the way... accordingly. "Ahhhh!~~ What a nice day, today! With the money you have, I am surprised we don't live here, Sho-cha- ?!"
Shohei and slammed his hand over Zan's mouth, not letting him finish what he started, "Don't call me that. And frankly, I dislike being around the open waters, and I think it'd be easier if were in a town." He explained with a glare. That being said, he removed his palm from the tip of his mouth and grudgingly followed him to the camp site, only expecting for the leviathans to follow. Of course.
