Kaliandra drifted through the cantina.  The information 
she had gotten from the Trandoshan had been helpful, to 
a point.  Now she needed to make a contact that could 
get her off this dust ball and on to Forven.  Forven was 
notorious tight with it security so that was going to be 
difficult but she had already left it known that she was 
looking for transportation and could pay, handsomely.

Lyzoun sat in the corner of the cantina waiting to meet 
her employer one last time before she left. Apparently 
there was one last thing he needed. 

>From the bar and roar went up as a Wolfman and a Wookie 
started snarling at each other. Lyz frowned. Wonderful.  
She grabbed up her mug of ale up as a body hurtled across 
her table.

She downed the contents of the mug and broke it over the 
head of all too smelly human who came charging past her.  
Right now would be a good time to go find another part 
of the cantina to wait.

She finally caught sight of the man she was to met and 
struggled to make her way through the crush of flailing 
bodies, just in time to see the man get caught up in the 
fight and get shot by a rangy Goatial.  Terrific!  This 
day just couldnít get worse, she thought as suddenly a 
snagle-toothed Devaronian took a swing at her.   She ducked 
out of the way easily and drove her boot into the alienís 
midsection.  She suddenly found herself caught up in the 
may lay.

She found herself back to back with a young woman in a dark 
robe.  The woman moved with a deadly grace as she managed 
to keep out of the way of several blows sent her way.  
They slowly worked their way out of the cantina.  

Lyzoun cursed as she stood over fallen body of her former 
employer. "Stupid man. Never listened to me." she sighed.

Kaliandra took a deep breath. "Thank you," she said look 
at the woman before her.

She looked over at Kaliandra and blinked, "Thank you for 
catching my back."

The young woman nodded. "Kaliandra Daroa," she said 
offering her hand.

"Lyzoun." The lithe woman offered her own hand.

"I take it you're not from here," Kali said with a small 

"Nope and I am going to leave as soon as I get cleaned up. 
No use sticking around"

"Actually looking for a way planet.  I was headed for 
Forven," she said, dusting of her pants.

Lyzoun frowned "Good luck getting a transport from here.....
Not many go out much further let alone the fighting out 
there." She paused, "Then again may be a good place to get 
work...I guess I could take ya."

"I could pay my way," Kali said.  "I would be much obliged."

"You have gear to gather then?"

"Just a bag and it's already packed," she said with a smile. 
"I travel light."

Lyzoun noded tersely, "Well then rides leaving." She grined 
and started to head for the door. 

Kaliandra scrambled to grab her bag she had left back of 
the bar and away from prying eyes.  She hoisted the strap 
over her shoulder and hurried after the other woman.

Lyzoun waited for her then with long purposeful strides 
headed for the spaceport.
