STAR WARS: GALACTIC TALES – BETWEEN THE EMPIRE AND THE REBELLION 1.11

diva_avKrynn walked with the Diva through the downtown area as they passed shops that were mostly closed and dark, but a few still bustled with activity. Most of the doors still open brimmed with sounds of laughter and alcohol. Krynn looked at the Diva as they walked without anything to say to the woman. Social interaction was something his training had never been big on. Discipline and protocol were well covered, but talking to people he had never been good at, so he just stared.

Though she was accustomed to having people stare at her, Aidenne found herself unnerved by his gaze. It was the way he did it. No lust, no adoration… just watching. Finally the silence was too much for her to take. “Have you seen anyplace that looks good? We’re supposed to be getting some food, you know,” she snapped.

STAR WARS: GALACTIC TALES – BETWEEN THE EMPIRE AND THE REBELLION 1.10

arden_avKyra followed Trey up the boarding ramp and into the saucer-like section that marked so many of the YT-model light freighters. She noticed at once that about half of what would usually be the cargo areas had been converted into passenger compartments. If Trey was a smuggler, the outside – or inside – appearance of the Free Flying Soul spoke to the contrary.

Trey jerked his thumb toward a small room on the right. “That’s your bunk.” He turned and looked at the girl following him. “If you want… I can look after that art thing.”

“Not likely,” she said flatly. Kyra stepped into her bunk without another word. As the door slid shut behind her, she briefly considered engaging the lock, but figured that there would be some sort of override so she didn’t bother...

krynn_avIn the silent vastness of night the curled claws of the helpless Chiss taloncraft spun uselessly in a slow twisting churn through space. Light from a nearby star glinted off the hull as it rotated between the sides damaged by the Nagai turbo lasers. as the ship turned the inner sanctum of the cockpit existed with it’s own dawn and dusk every eight minutes as the only indication of the ages of time passing in it’s journey through the nothing towards a destination of nowhere. The light passed over it’s passenger without his every knowing. He had long ago lost himself to the utter boredom. Time meant nothing anymore. All there was for the dark passenger was anger.

STAR WARS: GALACTIC TALES – BETWEEN THE EMPIRE AND THE REBELLION 1.8

trey_avKyra ran after Trey through the halls as Dlarit’s guards chased them through the estate’s subbasement. “I thought you had a plan to get away!” she yelled.

“I said I had a plan to get off the planet,” he shot back. “Not to get out of the mansion! I was just going to sneak out like I snuck in!” Trey abruptly skidded around a corner and rushed forward. He glanced back at Kyra, a smile creeping across his face. “But I have an idea.”

The duo ducked around a corner and Trey drew his blaster. “Here’s the plan. We stun these nerf-herders, head up two levels, get into the garage, and make off with one of those high-performance landspeeders. We can ditch it once we’re well away from here and then head for the spaceport.”
