STAR WARS: GALACTIC TALES – BETWEEN THE EMPIRE AND THE REBELLION 1.13

kyra_avKyra had ducked into a storage locker to allow Trey and the Diva Aidenne pass. When all seemed to be clear she stepped out again. The door to the small parlor slid open. She stood in the doorway waiting for any sign that the room’s occupant was going to acknowledge her presence. After a few moments of dead air, she shrugged, grabbed a cup, took the seat opposite him and poured a finger of the amber liquid.

“Quite the crew you have here.” She took a swallow and had to exert every ounce of control not to spray the liquid across the table. It felt like she’d taken an blaster bolt to the throat that trailed all the way down to her stomach where it ricocheted around setting her gut ablaze. Her eyes started to water, “Smooth,” she said with a slight wheeze.

The man’s face creased in a smirk...

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...

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.”

A blaster bolt whizzed above their heads...

Star Wars: Galactic Tales – Between The Empire and the Rebellion 1.2

kyra_avTrey crept up to the southern edge of the Dlarit estate, his dark suit blending in with the shadows. He surveyed the stone wall and smiled. It was rough, with regular metallic spikes topping it — spikes far enough for a Hutt to slip between. He pulled a mask up over his face and slipped on a pair of goggles. Placing a foot on the wall, he hefted himself up and grabbed a spike.

Pulling himself to the top, Trey peered across the lawn. Spotting a nearby Bilba tree, he slipped over the fence and sprinted over to the tree. Crouching down, he surveyed the distance to the balcony.”That guard might pose a problem,” Trey thought, spotting the burly man in the ill-fitting suit toting a DC-15S blaster. Trey slid his stun blaster out of its holster and waited...
