Akane had ran off to find a certain someone. She had thought about everything that had happened between them ever since they met that night at the yakuza bar. From allies, to rivals, to strangers...and yet, maybe all this happened for a reason. Random memories came back: a bowl of chicken soup, a laptop full of stickers just like hers, a field of blue flowers, and now, the pyramid that lied in front of them. Would it really hurt to talk things through, just once more?
"What are you doing here all alone?"-Akane stood before Jun, smiling as she extended a hand out to her.
Jun looked up when she heard her voice and to her horror, found Akane looking down at her. She grabbed a handkerchief from her pocket and mopped up her face, accepting Akane’s help with her other hand. “I was… you were enjoying yourself with your friends and I did not want to interrupt. Go back to them, I will be alright.” Jun tried to smile, but it was a pitiful attempt.
"Now you are just being silly, are you still gonna deny it after all that happened today?"
Musashi set both her hands on Jun's shoulders and looked at her directly
"Jun, you ARE my friend"
Akane turned away from her and crossed her arms behind her back as she looked up at the sky. "I would be lying if i didn't say I'm happy you came all the way here for my sake...thanks"- She said, blushing slightly as she turned around to face her again.
"So? You'll come with me, won't you?"-Akane extended her hand out towards her again.

Jun went rose red when Akane called her a friend. “But I did… so much…” She sniffled and gave up trying to talk, just throwing her arms around Akane. “Yes. Of course. Just uh, don’t let Mai hit me. I think she’s still mad. And can you… text Gan and tell him I’m… we’re alright?” She asked quietly, not wanting others to hear the request.
"Don't worry about Mai, alright? she can be scary sometimes, but she's not a bad person. As for Gan, we can probably call him as soon as we are back to Shinkyo, does that sound good? I'm sure he's worried about everyone, especially about you"
Musashi held Jun's hand and brought her back with the group. despite all that had happened, today was a victory for everyone. what will the future bring? nobody knew at that time.
