It was summer on Alderaan the sun was high in the sky and the thranta were playing on the high currents.Blue sat next to Faith looking up tilting her head one way then another as she watched the thranta play.
Bekka came in, "Majesty your next meeting has arrived."
Faith shook her head wishing she could go flying today. "Who is it again that is coming?" Faith turned reluctantly to look over at Bekka. Faith had to admit while Bekka was becoming efficient, Ana was who she missed.She and Captain Lindsey had both settled down retired and were raising their son. She couldn't blame them. Oh but she was digressing.
Bekka nodded, "Marina Devoe Mam." Bekka handed over the datapad to Faith, "This is all I could find."
Faith studied the bit of data that was there, "she passed security so she must be safe..bring her in when she's ready."Not when Faith was ready but when Marina was.Over the years Faith had learned that while she could take a deep breath and move on some coming to speak with her needed more time to compose themselves.
Faith's policy was to wait. Let her visitors enjoy the decor of the hall, the pictures of her relatives, her children her mother, their beloved Rebel Princess, and Resistance General. Let her take a breath collect her thoughts while gazing upon the blue hues that swept around the rooms and halls remind everyone of the Apalis Coast.
The lush green of the Glarus Valley the snow capped Joran Mountains, the jungles, the deserts everything that they could put into the hall to let them know they were on Alderaan. They were in the Palace. They were important to the Queen.Important enough to know they could come when they were ready.
Within reason of course.
She smiled and watched the door.
