Mio was pleased to find the other three all present. It would be definitely be enjoyable to have some company for a change.
"Well, I'd like to see if I can get a room at an inn or something and keep my gear there. I didn't really have anything specific in mind after that, but I'm always open for some window shopping, so I'll certainly tag along with everyone else."
"A room and shopping sounds good. I do want to make a trip into the island though."
He pulled out a map with an 'x' on it and pointed to it.
"Apparently, the group of guys that killed my parents are here and I want to have a... talk with them. You guys don't need to go with me, but I'm definitely going."
Rio looked mostly towards Mio while he talked. He knew her background when it came to fighting and knew she could probably handle herself. Not that he didn't think the other two could fight, but she was trained by the Saiyan prince.
Rio's reason for journeying to the island finally revealed, Mio nodded noncommittally. "It certainly sounds like there's a long story behind that. Well, I don't mind a little diversion, just as long as I get to spend some time at the beach, too."
Everyone having agreed on hitting up the inn, Mio walked with the group to the rather run-down looking inn. S'ppose this isn't the best place for business, after all. She knocked against the wood of the door as she opened it and stepped through.
"Hello? I'm looking for some lodgings for a few nights."

The front door creaked open to reveal an unattended front desk. There was another door behind this desk that was closed, and from behind it came some muffled voices and the sounds of people making their way over. Eventually, an older man and his wife emerged, looking a little surprised to see guests. They exchanged glances, then the man spoke.
“Ya pay now. I ain't havin' no more of you mainland weasels scurryin' outta here withaut payin'.”
The woman nudged him in the side, signaling for him to ease up.
“Lay off, woman. Where else ahr they gonna go?”
He grinned at his guests.
“Nah, if ya can pay up, I jus' so happen to have some vacancies.”
...Of course he did. The problem was, the building was run down. A good number of rooms weren't fit to be used due to a hole here or a rot-inducing leak there, and much of what remained had been transformed into storage. The inn keeper didn't know his guests' relations, nor did he seem to care. He simply assumed that a group like this arriving at one time would have traveled together, so there was no harm in assigning the first rooms he could remember being guaranteed open.
“I've got two rooms on the second floor. One's a queen and the other's two singles. They're across the hall from one another.”
He rummaged around the desk for keys while he waited for the travelers to get out their money. It seemed he didn't think they'd be declining.
Honorea looked at Unaliari as she pulled her moneybag out. “Hmm, two rooms..” She thought. Might as well not make a scene, pay the man, and then discuss it with the others once they were headed up to their rooms. She didn’t care where she slept, but she figured Rio would at least get his own bed, which left it up to the girls to decide who slept alone, and who had a buddy for the night. She pulled her coins out of the pouch that was attached at her waist.
“Well, here is my share. Shall we show ourselves to the room?”
Rio had several thoughts run through his head as the man said he had only three open beds, but for now he kept his mouth shut. Rio threw his coins down on his desk. He wasn’t pleased with how the man decided to run a business.
“So, looks like I’m sleeping on the floor.”
