The trip from Devoran to Kiffu is a long week. With no messages from Squall, there's less to pass the time other than chatting with Hosk or Jojee. Have you officially made an offer to Jojee to join your crew? What does Hosk know about your intentions to leave the Libation? Are you leaving the shuttle behind?
Other than you sister, and probably your older brother, are there any other relatives or close childhood friends that you expect will be down there on Kiffu, excited for your return?
