she opens her eyes and just knows what she wants is right here. Rey turns and smiles at Anakin.

"It worked!!"

Permalink

"It did! Now, what I sensed is a bit hidden - can you get to it?"

Permalink

Rey thinks and tries to slip back into that place - it's a little harder now, more intangible... but. She walks a little to the opposite wall, lifts a piece of metal from her waist and uses it to open a panel. She makes quick work at it, cutting a few wires and ripping something out altogether until -

A compartment back where she was opens and reveals a small trove of valuable parts that Rey can disconnect and sell!

Permalink

"Good job, Rey."

Permalink

Rey laughs and really wants to hug Anakin. "I can't wait to come back and find even more stuff. Maybe we can even find a ship and fix it up and go find my mama!"

Permalink

"You know, I once stole a ship and all the slaves in a city and ran away with everyone to somewhere nice. It's quite doable."

Permalink

"But we could build one instead and it'll be ours and we won't have an angry person chasing us to get their ship back."

Permalink

"Building a ship sounds a lot more fun than stealing one, too."

Permalink

"Yeah! And we can put in whatever we want and make it perfect and it'll be nice and safe and we can make sure there's secret passages and hidey-holes and nobody but us will know where they are."

Permalink

"That sounds like an excellent sort of ship to have."

Permalink

Rey bounces and starts her work on pulling everything apart. She has to be careful, she doesn't want to break anything and sometimes the parts are still live and you can get hurt a lot if you don't handle them properly. She still has a lot to learn about this sort of stuff, but she's picking everything up really quickly.

Permalink

Anakin helps direct her - she knows a lot about how spaceships work, after all, even beyond her own sensory abilities. There's tricks, sometimes, to getting this or that piece off without damaging it, and at one point she helps Rey find some old engineer's tools nearby.

Permalink

Rey is nearly giddy with excitement by the time they're finished. She learned so much and she has nice tools now and so much tech. She maybe doesn't even need to give it all to the blobfish and can actually keep a little for just-in-case when she is really desperate.

Permalink

Anakin has suggestions on smaller, more valuable stuff Rey should be able to hide better, so she can keep some back safely. "And you can make people ignore things, though it's harder if you aren't right there."

Permalink

"There's this old AT-AT that I sometimes go to hide things in, I could put them there. It's a little far away from Niima Outpost and the blobfish doesn't like me going out there much, but we can go there now."

Permalink

"Alright."

Permalink

Rey packs everything up and makes her way down to the ground. It's much easier than going up, she jumps onto a cable and slides down quickly. When she's on the ground she moves over to a small sled, carefully packs everything away and secure under a tarp and then starts dressing from head to toe. A mask and goggles and a covering for her head. The goggles may be scavenged from a old stormtrooper helmet.

"I don't have a speeder yet and it's a long walk. We should be back before the sun is really high though."

Permalink

She nods. "There's ways you can use the Force to move more quickly, but they'll be possibly about as tiring as running when you're still new at it."

Permalink

"I wanna learn that! That sounds so much fun." She starts hauling her sled out into the dunes. The sun is hot, but not as hot as it will be, and they look to be in the middle of a sea of sand. "Sometimes I go out with some others, but 'coz I'm small they think they deserve more than me and take my portions."

Permalink

"That's wrong of them."

Permalink

"The Blobfish is the boss and usually he makes sure everyone behaves. Telling him about it would've made them mad at me and probably steal my things even more. I just go out on my own now."

Permalink

"It doesn't sound like he's a very good boss."

Permalink

Rey shrugs and keeps on pulling her sled.

"How did you find me?"

Permalink

"I've been wandering old battle sites for a while. I happened to see you fall."

Permalink

"Were you at the big battle?" She's heard so much about the Battle of Jakku. All the ships that she scavenges from are from it.
