Ace meets new friends and joins forces with them to improve their relationship.
Chapter 7: New Friends!

As the seventh day of their adventurous journey dawned, the group of intrepid explorers found themselves traversing the vast, sprawling grass plains. The sun bathed the landscape in a warm, golden glow, casting long shadows across the meadows as they made their way through the tranquil expanse.

Amidst the serene beauty of nature, the group's harmonious laughter and lighthearted banter echoed through the open air. They shared stories, jokes, and snippets of fond memories, their camaraderie growing ever stronger with each passing moment.

Suddenly, as they rounded a gentle bend in the landscape, the group was met with a fortuitous encounter. Two boys, Luke and Ken, had crossed paths with them, their eager expressions marking them as fellow participants in the rigorous training. With excitement brimming in their eyes, they approached the group and asked if they could join their little squad. Without hesitation, the group welcomed them with open arms, readily embracing the new comrades who had appeared on their journey.

As evening descended upon the landscape, the group decided to establish a large, makeshift base of operations, ready to indulge in a smoky, tantalizing barbecue dinner. The savory scents of grilled meat and the crackling of the campfire filled the air, imparting a sense of warmth and comfort.

Amidst the lively dinner, the table grew a tad cramped, prompting Luna to settle on Ace's lap as they all savored the sumptuous feast. The admiring gazes of Luke and Ken did not go unnoticed, their eyes reflecting a mixture of admiration and jovial amusement as they observed the undeniable closeness between Ace and Luna.

In the midst of this convivial atmosphere, a playful whisper escaped Luna's lips as she turned to Ace, her eyes sparkling with mischief. "Didn't Sarah have a crush on Luke?" Her words hung in the air, igniting a mischievous glint in her eyes, and sending a knowing smile spreading across Ace's features. The unspoken understanding they shared in that moment set into motion a subtle plan to unite Sarah and Luke, kindling the flames of a potential romance.

As the night descended upon the grassy plains, casting a comforting blanket of darkness over the adventurers, they retired to their respective tents. Luna, embracing her serene slumber, soon found herself nestled soundly on top of Ace, the night enveloping them in a cocoon of tranquility and unspoken promises.

With the bonds of friendship tightening and the allure of budding romance hanging in the air, the seventh night of their adventure came to an end, paving the way for the next chapter of their unforgettable journey.
