The water began to get choppy, causing the boat to irk and jump. This caught Tatsu off guard as he soon felt his rear leave it's perch on the boats side. His eyes widened as he quickly turned, grabbing on to the edge of the boat before making a might descent into the great blue ocean! In most cases one would scream or panic but as the young wizard hung from a single arm he started to laugh. He pulled himself up slightly and planted both feet on to the side of the boat then jumped over like a kid would a small fence. He landed back on the boat , noticing that some of the sailors were watching and shaking their heads. It seemed to Tatsu that they were just as eager to arrive to their destination, but clearly for different reasons. "I'm not that much trouble am I?" he wondered as he slumped down and sat next to his traveling companion.
He didn't know much about this guy other than the fact he used some sort of water magic. Tatsu had tuned out during most of that conversation with Heero as he explained the concept of slayers. Who had time to listen to lecture when there were pretty Fairy Tail girls duking it out over the last piece of pecan pie?! Whatever the case was, Tatsu didn't mind his temporary partner, he must have been strong if Heero had recommended the two to go on this mission. It sounded quite dangerous...the exotic land..the animals that lurked in the jungle, the hunters that they would encounter and god knows what else?! It sounded like a real blast and Tatsu couldn't wait to get there.
A smile came across the wizards face as his Emerald eyes lit of with excitement. He jumped up and set his gaze , peering through the dissipated fog to sea the silhouette of mountains in the distance, standing watch like sentinels over the great land of Joya. "C'mon Zero get up, its time to get the show on the road!"
