Kai got up and Jay stood facing to where the arrow had come from. But there was no one there.
"A booby trap?" Jay asked surprised.
"I guess so. No one is here," said Kai, "Let's go. We must be getting close to something."
Jay opened his mouth to apologize to Kai for shouting at him like he had, but Kai had already walked away.
I guess he's still mad at me, Jay thought sadly, in fact I probably just made things worse. I really shouldn't have yelled at him.
Jay followed Kai once again not saying a word. His mouth had caused enough trouble already. The ninjas had told him before that he talked too much. He should probably just shut up for the rest of his life.
"Jay, look!" Kai whispered.
Jay looked over his friends shoulder. In front of them the cave opened up into a large room with another exit on the opposite wall. Between the two openings was a mountain of tools, raw materials and weapons.
Jay was about to say that they must have stumbled across a storage room, but remembered in time to keep his mouth shut.
"I think I see the nun chucks on top. Climb up and grab them. I'll keep watch," said Kai.
Jay nodded and started climbing carefully. The pile wasn't very stable. But Jay kept in mind everything Cole had taught him about climbing. Take your time and test the sturdiness before stepping up. So Jay did. It was a long process but eventually he made it to the top.
Taking a deep breath he picked up the golden nun chucks. He had them back. Now he just had to get down. He stepped forward trying the find a path down when the pile shifted.
In an avalanche of objects Jay found himself sliding down the mountain out of control.
Jay was dizzy when he hit the floor. When his vision stopped spinning he was 5 skeletons running out of the entrance opposite of where he and Kai had come in.
Oh, this just isn't my day! He thought.
Kai stepped in front of him them drawing his sword.
"Are you okay?" he asked.
Jay nodded and stood bringing out his normal nun chucks.
Kai smashed open the head of one skeleton leaving the body in a pile. Jay swung his nun chucks knocking off the head of two more. The forth grabbed Jay from behind, about to cut his throat with a sword, but soon found the wrath of the hilt of Kai's blade. Jay kicked the final skeleton back into the wall which activated another booby trap.
The ceiling began creeping down towards them knocking the pile of objects down as it went.
REALLY not my day! Jay thought.
He and Kai ran towards the entrance they had come in from, dodging falling shurikans, blades and tools. Just as there were about to be home free, Jay tripped over a wheel. He fell flat on his face, the golden nun chucks flying through the entrance.
Jay looked up. No way was he going to survive now. The ceiling was too close. He closed his eyes and braced himself for the impact. But at last second, he felt Kai grab his arm and pull him though the entrance.
Both he and Kai took a moment to catch their breath and let the adrenaline die down.
"Are you okay?" Kai asked again.
Jay nodded and stood. He wanted to thank Kai for saving his life again, but he still didn't feel like talking. He'd made too many mistakes today.
"No, you're not…" Kai's tone suddenly got serious and concerned.
Jay looked up. Was he bleeding and not noticed? Was he bruised? Why was Kai looking at him with so much worry?
"Jay, we got the nun chucks back. Why aren't you talking?" Kai asked.
