???: " So, sounds like a plan?"
Jake's eyes shot open as he heard a voice speaking to him. He sat up from the bench he had been laying on to look around, but saw no one.
???: " ... You weren't listening to any of that, were you?"
The voice was coming from his pocke-- oh, right! His PET!
Jake whipped it out of his jacket-pocket to confront the mildly-irritated voice that had (apparently) been talking to him while he fell asleep on ACDC Park's bench. And he'd obviously been out cold for quite a while -- it was night time now, but the sun was still shining before he fell asleep.
(Warrior): " That tired?"
(Jake): " Well... it's been a long day."
(Warrior): " Right..."
Still groggy from being interrupted from his power-nap, Jake rubbed his eyes as he brought the PET screen away from his face. The brightness was a little too high for his eyes to adjust, at the moment.
(Jake): " ... so what were you saying?"
(Warrior): " A lot."
(Jake): " Well fine, if you wanna be tha--"
(Warrior): " Let's bust some viruses."
Jake paused for a moment, considering the proposal. Seemed kind of 'spur-of-the-moment', but then again, he'd been asleep for several hours. God only knew how long Warrior had been talking about this subject during that time.
(Jake): " ... It's kind of late, isn't it?"
(Warrior): " It is for everyone else. But you just woke up, so let's get up and go."
Jake didn't have to ask why Warrior wanted to go virus busting -- he obviously was craving for action. They'd been offline for quite some time now, busy with education, career-searching, and the like. Chances were they had probably gotten pretty sloppy, in fact.
So it was a good idea to freshen up on their battle techniques, actually.
(Warrior): " Do you have any Chips on you?"
(Jake): "I never leave the house without a handful."
(Warrior): " Good. Let's Jack-In and get started then -- I've been waiting way too long for this."
(Jake): " Alright. Just make sure you Jack-Out when things get sketchy this time. I don't feel like piecing together your data again, after what happened before."
(Warrior): " But... The world was at stake..."
(Jake): " Ofcourse it was. Jack-In! War--"
(Warrior): " You're still on the bench."
(Jake): " ..."
It was early. Or late. Whichever.
Shaking off the tiredness, Jake walked over to the infamous Squirrel Mascot of ACDC Park -- searching for a ledge of some sort to sit on as he plugged up his PET (It was sort of old-school, but he liked it that way).
(Jake): "Jack-In! Warrior!"
(Warrior): " Execute!"

It felt like he'd been sitting here for a year now.
How long had it really been? Who knew.
At any rate, he'd accumulated enough Zenny to buy a few upgrades for his Navi, so at a leisurely pace, Jake got up and left the park to head to SciLabs and buy some items. Fortunately, that place seemed to always be open, even this late at night.
