She resists him, for a moment, but it's not hard to throw her off. She responds with a grin and a wave of affection.

Permalink

She's proud of him.

For a minute that's the only thing in the world that matters.

Permalink

wonder how long it'll take me to do this all the time.

Permalink

You'll have most of it by the end of the day, I bet. Really getting it down, so you do it even in your sleep, that'll take longer, but the bond is helping you out - couple weeks, maybe a month?

Permalink

So, in a month – at most – they'll be protected even while they're sleeping. He'll be hard to hold onto. Will it wake them if someone tries to grab them anyway?

Not that that keeps them safe if they're attacked in some other way. But she has her senses. And he can share them. Even if it's just one of them in one place – not that they'll ever sleep separately if they can avoid it...

They have to be harder to hurt.

She scoots over and scoops him onto her lap. My danger sense covers both of us, now, you know. I'll still teach you, of course - precog is good to know how to do anyway - but we're not vulnerable like that.

Permalink

And that'll wake them up. They remember that much.

They're not safe – nobody is ever safe, really – but maybe they're close enough.

Permalink

She gives him a squeeze. No Sith here, love. And nobody else can touch us.

Permalink

no sith yet.

Permalink

She sighs, settles him more comfortably on her lap, and sinks into a trance, looking forward through time.

Permalink

Nothing, nothing, nothing...

 

not nothing.

 

Not yet, yeah. A couple weeks. Squeeze.

Permalink

Oh.

That's...faster than he expected.

 

are we going to be ready?

Permalink

We shouldn't hang around to find out. Get your arm, swap ships, get out.

Permalink

Okay. They can do that. They won't be here for Him to find.

do we warn them? the people here?

Permalink

Tell Deyne, yeah. We need to talk to him about Mabbet, anyway.

She scoops him up and stands, gives the medicine ball a kick back toward its rack. Anything else?

Permalink

can't think of anything.

It's hard to focus on anything else, now, anyway.

Permalink

Okay. She sets him on his feet, hugging him to herself with an arm around his waist, and clicks her tongue to get Daisy's attention, having momentarily forgotten that she can speak.

Permalink

Well. He hasn't forgotten.

"He's coming. We have to get ready to go."

Permalink

"Oh dear."

Permalink

- right, speaking. "Couple weeks, little less. We have time to swap the ship."

Permalink

"Yes Ma'am. Shall I go get started on that?"

Permalink

Such a good droid. "Yeah. Something small. Nice to live in."

Permalink

"Yes Ma'am."

Her route follows theirs, for the first leg, and she keeps pace, quietly.

Permalink

"Do you think they're going to be safe?"

It's a stupid question. Of course they aren't.

Permalink

Probably. If we make it clear enough we knew He was coming. He won't try to torture them for information if He's sure they don't have it. It being a hospital helps; us not seeming to care about them much will help too. I think Deyne is smart enough to convince Him of all that.

"Not our problem, pet."
