“You put on quite the show...” Axel said as he study Alex and her newly acquired arm. “I don’t suppose you know how you took on that form, right?” Before she could answer, he shook his head to dismiss it. “It doesn’t matter. The only thing that is important is that your safe.” he said before looking after a moment of gazing at her.
"Thank you..." she said as her thoughts trailed off for a moment. Her hand wandered into her pocket and she shook herself to reality upon realizing something. She still had something important on her. "Here... I think this belongs to you..." she said as she pulled the chaos emerald out and showed it to Axel.
He gave a warm smile as he gently took the emerald from her hand. He looked like he was about to say something before a familiar voice cut him off. “Right here is fine, Blake!”
Blake sat Roxie beside Alex and walked off towards Chimera, a feeling of tension seemed to come over Axel but Alex calmed him. "It's fine... No more fighting..." she said. Content with her statement, Axel let her go and walked away to check on Ken, leaving the now former pirate cat alone with the captain.
She smiled at Alex in her usual manner. “So you’re really leaving?”
This question made Alex think for a minute, the past few days she was with Roxie's crew started out rough, but turned into some of the best days she has ever had in her life. This was surprisingly difficult to do, to say goodbye.
"Well... I'm needed elsewhere, Roxie... Things are... Difficult right now." she started as she looked at her metal arm. "I... Won't forget what you... All of you... Did for me... You're all like a family to me. And I'm proud to say I was a part of the Dread Pirate, Roxie's crew." she said looking at Roxie with a slight smile.
