Bowser and Kamek both snapped back to sobriety but it took them a bit longer than Nadia to actually get over the experience. The old wizard went from hysterical cackling to a slightly wheezing giggling that gradually died as he got a hold of himself, while the king had given up trying to right himself before the enchantment ended, and made no move to do so even when sober. Even after Bacchus had been dealt with and Kamek had accepted the catwoman’s help to stand he was still lying there.
Kamek dusted himself off and then glanced at the king, before becoming a touch worried. ”Sire?” Kamek called, and then when that got no response he shuffled over and poked Bowser’s foot with the end of his broom, causing the to startle awake (having apparently fallen asleep during the latter half of his brief drunken stint) with a ”GAH, WHAT. WHAT HAPPENED,” before he rolled over and pushed himself upright and demanded to know ”WHERE IS THAT GUY, I’M GONNA PUNCH HIM IN HIS STUPID FACE!”
”I believe Ms fortune already dunked him into the ocean” Kamek offered
”SHE DID? Oh. Good. That guy was annoying. Also what was that?”
”I am unsure. Quite the strange hex, that is for certain” Kamek replied making it fairly clear that neither of them had ever been drunk before, and also suggesting that they had no idea alcohol was even a thing.

Jr squinted, looked the woman up and down and then flushed with embarrassment when he realized she was right. ”Oh, ah, right. So you are,” he replied awkwardly scratching the back of his head and looking away as he functionally admitted that, yes, he hadn't really bothered to remember who she was once she’d left the picture. Generally that kind of dismissive attitude to remembering the names and faces of strangers didn't come round to bite him on the tail. It was a lesson learned, though whether it would stick remained to be seen. Fortunately the woman recovered quickly from the insult and got on to telling him why she was here with a chipper tone and friendly attitude.
He had to laugh at her impression of her boss, which made him actually feel bad about forgetting her rather than just embarrassed by it. She seemed fun. It helped that she didn’t have a suspicious bone in her body and hadn't pressed to investigate why he didn’t want her in the ship. Instead she was here to see who had been in the ship helping them in the battle, namely, them. Now that she’d worked that out she left as quickly as she’d arrived, hopping onto the water and scooting off to sortie against the fleet again. He wondered how long it would be till she got ripped apart by something like the water princess. He didn’t like that thought. Instead he waved her off and then waited till she was out of sight before letting out a quiet sigh of relief.
”Peach can’t get back soon enough” he said to himself, not that that would actually shovel the problem, the true Abyssals where going to be a problem while they were in town but it would mean it wasn't his problem anymore.
As it still was right now, he walked his way back into the ship, scrambled up to the bridge and then knocked on the door of the bedroom Coast’s clear, you can stop hiding under the bed now or whatever your doing in there”
Inside Rika let out a breath she hadn’t known she’d been holding when Jr gave the all clear.
“Are we going to do this every time someone comes near?” she asked. It had not been an enjoyable experience in the slightest, sitting there pumped up for a fight but not able to do anything to release that energy and while also simultaneously worrying that they might be found and that she would have too do just that. Unable to actually put those feelings into words she reduced her experience down to simply “I didn’t like doing it, it felt bad”
