The protoss must be feeling the same thing.
Jake grinned. "So, uh—this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship, eh?"
The protoss finished its examination of Jake and vanished.

He turned around and looked at the growing tower of smoke and flame still rising high above him. "Yeah, time to get out of here."
He wasn’t sure where he would go next, but this time it would have to be someplace with people.
