Nico hadn't minced much words with Benjamin or Azyle on the way back to this place. For the most part, he was just trying to concentrate on how they were going to do this, and more importantly, how they were going to get inside. The outside of the area didn't look heavily guarded, but there were Armos statues that could come to life and stomp on people who drew too close. Of course, he wanted to concentrate on this, but the guide that was helping them through the desert on a wagon was sincerely getting on his nerves. And Ari wasn't helping in that regard, either. The guide's name was "Bucky the Dusty-Mouthed," and true to the name, he sounded like his mouth was full of dust or sand, causing some incoherence in his speech. In the times that he was well-understood, he was nonsensical, almost as if the sandstorms had addled his brain. "I met my first love in this desert. Her name was Patricia..." Yeah, that's nice, old man, Nico thought. "She's a ghost now!" "Wait what?" Ari listened to this man with some form of intent. "So where is she now?" "Right here." "...where?" "Here!" Bucky tried to swipe at Ari, but she flew away. He wasn't very fast, and in trying to reach her, he fell off the wagon. Ari laughed at him all the while. Nico just smirked. The Kokiri looked forward and realized they were close. "Hey, stop the wagon, we're here." The prison wasn't in sight. They had stopped at the base of a sandhill, and the prison was on the other side. The whole point of this was so no one would see them coming so they wouldn't get discovered or arrested on sight. They'd have to sneak up to the top of this dune, where he would tell them specifically what this place was. After that, they would find a way to get inside. "Right, so here's the deal," he started. "We're heading to the top of this hill, and at the base of it on the other side is the prison. I'll explain what this place is once we've ascended the hill, as well as the plan from there. Any questions?" Ari responded with, "Yeah, how will we--" A glare from Nico cut her sentence short. "Erm...never mind." "Right, let's go." And with that, he started ascending the hill. "Heeeeeeeeeeey," Bucky called. "What about my--" His words were cut short when Nico tossed two rupees, one blue, one yellow, at him. He caught them with ease. "You'll get the rest when you get us out of the desert at the right time. Fair?" Bucky shrugged. "Fair, I guess." "Alright, good." Now he was ascending the hill.
