Date: Monday, May 20, 2002 11:29 PM Her ship is a small one, mostly meant for one or two people. It wasnít falling apart, but wasnít top of the line either. Lyzoun didnít really make apologies for it and moved to settle Kaliandra in. "I don't know about you but I am always hungry after a fight,Ē she said as she began to prepare food for evening meal. Kali smiled. "Sounds good." She watched the woman a moment and then asked, "What do you want me to do?" Lyz asked, tossing her a fruit to peel. "So what brings you to Forven?" Kali slipped a vibroshiv out a small, concealed sheath in the top of her boot and proceeded to peel it. "Business," she said. "They're selling and I'm buying." Lyz chuckled as she finished chopping up another fruit. "Well its not exactly the safest of places right now you might want to reconsider where you..." She glanced over at Kali, "Buy whatever it is you are interested in." "There have been some interesting rumors coming out of that sector. Interesting rumors of interesting things." She smiled knowingly at the woman. "I like interesting things and as you saw before, I can take care of myself." Lyz nodded, "Yes you can." She handed back the peeled fruit. "Have you heard anything about that sector?" "Not a lot." Lyzoun replied accepting the fruit. "Some fighting here and there." "About what exactly?" "Donít know why." She handed Kali a bowl and began to serve the mixture of fruit. Kali thanked her and then picked at the fruit. "What's your interest in going there?" "Work. If there's fighting someone'll be hiring." "So you're a mercenary." Lyz nodded, "Yes." They ate in silence for a while and then Kali nodded to the emblem on her jacket. "Old unit?" Lyz looked down at her shoulder, "Yes." Kali carefully memorized the insignia and filed it away for later use and then let it drop. She recognized it as belonging to the Ring Star Legion. "What about you? You working for someone?" Kali nodded, sticking to her cover story. "I have an employer. She's very interested in a new weapon we've heard the Forven have." "New weapon? What kind?" Kali picked up concern from Lyx. "You know your typical super secret, super powerful, super load of bantha poodoo," she said with a smile. "My employer doesn't thing it really exists, but she's sending me to find how much of a colossal waste of time this is." Lyz nodded, "Doesn't hurt." Kali chuckled. "Especially if you wave enough credits chits around." "That always works" "It's not mine which makes it even nicer." "Always a plus...as long as you are careful with your employers money." "She's generous as long as I deliver. I have never not delivered." Lyzoun raised her glass, "Then hereís to generous employers." Kali raised her glass in salute and then sipped it. Lyz smiled and sipped at her drink as well, "So then as my most current employer for the journey, where would you like me to set you down on this planet?" "Outside the capital city of Luxion," she said. "I'd like to get the lay of the land before just showing up." Lyzoun nodded, "Very well then...you should get some rest before we land." Kali nodded and moved back to the worn, but comfortable acceleration couches. "Wake me when we're there," she said, setting down and making herself comfortable. She had no intention of sleeping, but she had make things look good. Lyzoun nodded, "Will do." She moved up front to check on her navcomp. Kali settled back, reaching out to the Force and drawing close. She slipped into a light meditative trance. To her companion she would look soundly asleep, but she was very much awake and aware of everything that was going on around her.
