...he laughs.

"Yeah. You're right."

So now they have to act.

He thinks he can do that.

She gives him a little squeeze. Daisy continues toward the lobby as they head to the nurse's station, where Pradnakt tells the nurse on duty that they need to talk to Dr. Deyne at his earliest convenience, with body language that makes it clear that this actually means 'now'. Then she guides them to their room to wait for him.

It doesn't take long for him to arrive.

"You wanted to speak to me, Ma'am?"

Permalink

"Yes. There's another Sith on his way, looking for us. We'll be leaving before he gets here; sometime in the next few days."

Permalink

He nods, thoughtfully.

"Yes Ma'am. I'll have the updated settings for the pump ready in a few hours, and I'll see if they can rush the arm at all. Is there anything else we can do for you?"

Permalink

"...the doctor who did my arm. Mabbet?"

He should be acting, but instead he stares at the table.

"Is there...anything she needs?"

Permalink

(Pradnakt gives him another squeeze, and a quiet wave of reassurance.)

"I'll ask."

Permalink

He nods.

"Thank you."

That's...really all they can do, at this point.

Permalink

"Will that be all?"

Pradnakt nods, and he goes.

And Pradnakt scoops him up and settles them on the bed. We're going to be okay. She nuzzles him. We have time, we'll have a ship, it's not that hard to lose pursuit when you have those.

Permalink

...yeah. That's good.

He'll feel a lot better about it when they have their ship. And he has an arm. But she thinks they'll be okay and it's not hard to tap into that, the way they're linked up.

Permalink

She's confident, though that doesn't mean she's not nervous. She lays them down and pets him, anyway, relegating her concerns to vague background consideration.

Permalink

...petting is good.

It wasn't really that long that he was trapped, was it? But it still feels like he was starving for touch for such a long time.

Maybe it's because he didn't really have it before, either, not like this.

He reaches up with his good arm and tries clumsily to pet back.

Permalink

Yes, good. She hums happily and adjusts herself to be more easily pet.

Love you. She basks in it, for a bit. Never going to be alone again. An observation, more than a promise.

Permalink

He's still a little halting about it, but he does his best.

never again. not ever.

If either of them goes, the other goes as well.

Permalink

Yeah. It's nice, in its way.

Kissing? Kissing.

Permalink

–oh! Kissing! Somehow this is a surprise.

(It's a nice surprise.)

Permalink

Yes, very nice.

 

She's in no particular hurry to escalate; they can stay like this for a while.
