"Who are you? Saud means nothing to me."

Permalink

"I am- was the apprentice of the Sith who's base that was," she states simply, looking up at him from under her eyelashes.

Permalink

"And you abandoned your Master."

Permalink

"Not the word I'd use," she says carefully. "But he was a fool who was fighting a much more powerful foe."

There's something she's not saying, about what her master did to her that left her refusing to help him.

Permalink

"He was outnumbered, this is true." He watches her closely for a long moment, then: "Whatever agreement you had with Volos is null and void."

Permalink

"I said I could earn my way, sir," she responds, "And that was without factoring in that agreement."

Permalink

"We have no expectations of you and will drop you off at the closest port when next convenient."

Permalink

"If that's what you wish, sir," she agrees. (Which is less that optimal, and she's...fairly sure she can change enough minds that that will get overruled.)

"But I am a good worker, and I don't take up much space or resources." (And there's at least two ways 'worker' could be taken there, although it's not clear if she really means the second, more lewd option.)

Permalink

"Well, I want to keep her. She looks like a survivor. And we need more women onboard."

Permalink

"You have Aster and Vala." He moves to stand between Archaeus and Saud. "And you can't just overrule me, brother. I have plans."

Permalink

"Aster doesn't count, she's more mouse than girl."

She doesn't comment on Vala.

Permalink

They can probably have this argument without her. She's still leaning against the wall, isn't entirely sure she could keep her feet if she wasn't. (She doesn't think she could win a fight with any of these people, not in her current state, not without more information., which leaves her with only one option really if she wants them to keep her.)

Permalink

"I am the Captain of this vessel, Volos, and my word is law."

Permalink

"You keep telling yourself that, both of you. The little miss and I are taking a time out. V, go to the medbay."

Permalink

"...Ma'am?" Saud asks, and she lets a little of her exhaustion show.

Permalink

"Come on, lets get away from all of this."

She arches an eyebrow at the two men and holds out her hand to Saud.

Permalink

...Oh, she can do this. She steps forward (mildly surprised she manages to keep her feet), and takes the hand, lowering her eyes demurely. "Yes, ma'am," she agrees.

Permalink

"Ma'am. I like thatAt least someone treats me respect on this ship."

She leads her off.

Permalink

She follows obediently, keeping her eyes lowered, trusting on the woman, and her own awareness of the ship around her to stop her running into any walls. She's far more focused on keeping herself on her feet, and moving.

Permalink

Neauth keeps her on the straight and narrow.

Eventually after a bit of walking -- it's a big ship -- they arrive in what looks to be living quaters.

"How's this for comfort?"

Permalink

She looks around. "Spectacular, ma'am," she says agreeably. (She would say that about anything, but this is definitely far better than anything she's seen, including her master's quarters.)

Permalink

"We haven't had this ship long, so we haven't been able to make it completely our own yet, but it suffices... I suppose."

Permalink

Saud licks her lips, shifts slightly closer to...her new master? One of her new masters? She's not sure. Still.

"Perhaps I can help you make it feel more like yours, ma'am?" she offers. Her body language is open and inviting.

Permalink

"And how exactly would you do that? You're not familiar at all."

Permalink

"I know people. I know how to make them feel good. I am at your service, however you require it."
