Chapter 4 (ii) Warspite route AFTER STORY (ARK ROYAL, JERVIS & NELSON VER)

Five years after the peace treaty between the Abyssal and the Royal Navy……………………

“Hey Warspite, you are getting oddly excited going to meet with Ark Royal.” Arx complained

“Of course, it’s been five years since Ark’s retirement from the frontlines. So I am eager to see how she lived for these years.” Warspite exclaimed happily

As both of them walked to Ark Royal’s address, they saw a woman collecting clothes in the front yard. As they are wondering if they went to the wrong address, Warspite noticed that the woman was Ark Royal and called out to her.

“Hey, Ark!!” Warspite called out

“Hm? Oh, it’s Warspite and Commander. Welcome.” Ark said

“Long time no see, Ark. How are you?” Warspite asked

“Well, it’s the usual. Except that now I have retired from the frontlines, Life……let’s just say it has become all the while….peaceful.” Ark said while looking at her sole right arm, and stumpy left arm.

“Hey Warspite…” Arx called

“I know…It must’ve been hard for her.” Warspite said

As they are talking, a little girl came out of the house on a wheelchair. As Warspite and Ark looked towards the little girl, Arx noticed that the girl was actually Jervis, the destroyer.

“Warspite? Arx? What brings the two of you here?” Jervis said with a caring smile

“A-Ah…..We just want to visit you two….Sorry for the sudden visit.” Warspite apologized

“No worries, come in and have a seat. I will make some tea for us. And Ark too, why didn’t you tell me that we have guests. I could’ve prepare myself a bit.” Jervis said while pouting

“Ahahaha, sorry about that.” Ark laughed

…………………………………………………………………………………………….

At the living room…………………………………………………

“So, how’s marriage life for the two of you now?” Jervis asked as she brought out three glasses of tea and a glass of juice. Then she called out and a cat jumped into her lap and she started patting its head while showing a face full of love.

“Well, we visited Belfast two years ago. Then found out that she lived a happy life with another man. She even had a daughter with him. So we decided to leave early as to not bother them about her happy life..” Warspite explained

“I see, well that’s good. Too bad I can no longer visit her anymore~” Jervis said with a sad smile

“Why not?” Warspite asked

“Well, during the war, Ark and I suffered serious damages. So Ark lose her left arm, while I lost the ability move, permanently. Thus, the two of us decided to resign from war and lived out here, in this peaceful area without much care about wars.” Jervis said with a smile while looking at Ark.

“I see, so you no longer want to enter back to the battlefield?” Warspite sked

“Nah, living life like this is happy for us as well.” Jervis said with a smile

Arx kept silent the while time when Jervis and Waspite were chit chatting. Because he did not thought of Ark and Jervis suffered from permanent disease, and became unable to live like a normal girl anymore. Then the sound of keys unlocking door is heard and the cat jumped down from Jervis lap and went to the door.

“Meow~” the cat meowed

“Hey~ how’s my little kitty, huh?” a female voice sounded

“Oh, Nelson. Welcome home.” Ark said

“Oh, I guess we have guests today.” Nelson said while looking at Arx and Warspite

“Nelson, this is Arx and Warspite. Our former colleagues and comrades of war.” Jervis smiled as she introduced them

“I know, we are Royal Navy after all, right? So it’s normal that we know of each other.” Nelson said as she put out a hand.

“Long time no see, Arx” Nelson said with a smile

“Long time no see too.” Arx said as he shook her hand.

“Well then, how about staying for dinner?” Ark invited

“Oh never mind. We still have things to do, so we will be taking our leave them.” Arx said

“I see, then see you again.” Jervis said

“See you again as well.” Arx replied

“I will send you two to the door then.” Ark said

“Alright.” Warspite answered

……………………………………………………………………………………………..

At the door………………………………………………….

“I guess this is goodbye then.” Warspite said with a sad tone

“Oh come on. It’s not like any of us are going to die. We can still meet up after this.” Ark joked

“Alright then…Goodbye” Warspite said as she turned around

Before Arx also turned around, Ark called out to him and told him something. When he heard it he instantly became stunned on the spot. Then he regain conscious after Ark patted him on the shoulder and pointed at Warspite. Then he saw Ark’s smiling face and waving hand to him. He waved back and turned around to leave the house.
