So my leg is better, which is a blessing. Apparently I nearly bled out all over Jerax in the middle of Gormak lands, which was probably about as traumatizing as it sounds for him. Poor love.
Of course, I’m still limping around a bit, a bit more now since I went on that operation with the Seventh and the Marran. Better doesn’t mean all healed for me, really, but I’d be damned before I let them all go back out into Gormak lands to hunt some sith… thing without me there to keep an eye on everyone and make sure they all got back in one piece.
And they did, no thanks to some bitch Jedi who decided that caution was for the weak and tore out ass over tea kettle toward where the whatever was. Even though Jayl had just disarmed a bomb attached to the tiniest tripwire I’ve ever seen.
So sick of force users in general.
Some are okay. Like Master Johv - who got hurt while we were out; never seen a man that big get dropped like that - and Master Ihlrath.
Ihlrath, actually, is rather charming. He got hurt, as well; had to be carried by his padawan back to the med tents at Talanis. I was checking on him when he came to, and he looked at me like…
Let’s just say it’s probably a good thing Jerax didn’t happen to see that particular look. There’s already enough tension between the 7th and the Marran, even though both groups are working hand in hand, mostly friendly, that an unwarranted flareup of jealousy on Jerax’s part could be disastrous.
Especially since there’s nothing there.
It was odd, though. When Ihlrath woke, I could almost swear that he had fangs curling down over the edge of his lip like a vorn tiger. I checked later, though, when I went back to see how Master Johv’s concussion was treating him, and they were gone. Probably just a trick of the light.
This little excursion in the rain and mud was Jerax’s final straw. He and I are going to Corellia in a few days: he’s taking me to meet his parents. I am not and have never been the take home to mom and dad sort of girl. I can’t remember the last time I was so nervous.
I really hope they like me.
I mean. Of course they’ll like me. I’m fucking fabulous.
But I hope they like me for Jerax. He’s their only kid.
Thinking about it makes me feel almost sick.
Of course they’ll like me.
I should check out that noise in the hyperdrive exovalve system before we leave for Corellia.
…I’ll do that now.
