((Uh, Sky, you double posted, might wanna fix that.))
"By the way, Commander," the Jedi squeaked out meekly, "Is there anywhere that my comrade and I could get a hot shower in the refreshers as well as medical treatment? I'm sorry to have met you under these...odiferous conditions."
Came yet another reply from the Jedi as the Republic fellow simply kept himself clammed up. Tu'un would have to take lack of response to commanding officers into consideration later, he was too pressed to get info on the potential threat that the 'M'tr'eh' was heading towards, he didn't want the ship - no matter how powerful and well equipped - to go running into trouble blind. Plus there were many other issues to deal with, and being the only high ranking officer with any great deal of seniority on the colony, he was the one that had to run things while N'tala was in it's state of alert.
As they went down the hatch and found themselves marching down an empty and pristine corridor, they rounded on a small medical facility.
"Don't be sorry apprentice," he glanced at her with calculating eyes before continuing. "Your smells are nothing compared to the scent of a real battlefield, and believe me, I've been on plenty of those."
They entered the facility and he motioned for the head physician to come over, who, surprisingly, was not Mal, but a Mon Cal; they conversed shortly before Tu'un ushered the two bystanders to the back rooms where they would be treated.
As they went into a room with examining tables and the two were seated on them the Mal then continued, "I already said we were going to take you for medical treatment Miss Perdante, and as you can see I was not lying, no need to ask when you were already offered. As for showers and food," he paused to eye Kyza for a moment before going on. "I can assure you that once you have both been examined and treated as necessary, then you will both be given separate," yet again he paused to stare with a dull gaze at Perdante, "Accommodations to which you may both use at your discretion."
"As for food, we cannot assure that that demand will be met so readily," he turned to eye Kyza once more. "I ,unfortunately, cannot cater to your every whim and need, Kyza, I have more pressing matters to which I must attend," the Mal looking over at Sal with hard, squinting eyes. "Such as ascertaining the purpose of the Republic vessel that just exploded near our colony. Finding out who destroyed said vessel, and maybe getting some answers out of our guests."
He stood up straight with his hands behind his back, gazing at the duo before going on. "There are thousands of Mal, and hundreds of other species on this colony, and a near equal number aboard the 'M'tr'eh', I don't want that ship flying blind into danger, it could be a trap for all we know. I just want to know who attacked you, what faction they're from, what kind of ship was it? Or whether there was more than one."
"But it seems these two are more concerned with eachother. I don't have that luxury, I have a colony, a ships' crew to care about," he stopped as the head physician and some nurses knocked on the door and entered to examine Perdante and Sal.
"Sir, we have confirmed more pods have landed, orders?" The security officer from before asked, making Tu'un come back to the realization that their were practically ten armed men standing in the small room with them.
"Tell surface teams to check the LZ, and head up yourselves. I'll follow once I've grown tired of playing 'chase-my-tail' with these two," he sighed with a hint of exasperation, his eyes rolling ever-so-slightly. "And one of you call to get some rations in here." As the men nodded and left, Tu'un looked over at Kyza saying softly, "I can at least do that much for you."
"Now, Perdante, Sal, I'll be in the waiting room for you two. Once you're done being examined and cared for, I would greatly appreciate some cooperation from both of you, but if I can only get more requests and quiet demeanors, then I'm going to have leave you two to fend for yourselves, and as nice a colony as this is, you two still don't want to be here without an escort, it's....big." He informed them in a restored demeanor of calm before leaving the room, giving one last nod towards Kyza, and heading for the waiting room where he could direct things outside over his comm.
"But in you...I see the potential to see the Force die, to turn away from its will..."
"You are beautiful to me, exile. A dead spot in the Force, an emptiness in which its will might be denied."
"But no Jedi ever made the choice you did. To sever ties so completely, so utterly, that it leaves a wound in the Force..."
"I would have killed the galaxy to preserve you...You are more precious than you know..."-now...it's verbatim!-A quote from Darth Traya (Kreia)
