As Jerit saw Arekk's reaction, he felt so much confusion but immediately got the idea of the direction Arekk went.
"Arekk, I am so sorry. Please, is there any way I could help?"
The padawan looked to Kei, who was already close to the man, trying to calm him down. The boy had so much sympathy for Arekk. The war did something to him and Jerit had not realized.
I am a horrible person for this...
"Calm down Ar'ekl, calm down. Jerit, leave us. I'll find you later"
Jerit was on the verge of refusing. He wanted to help but he had to follow Kei's instructions. He knew Arekk better than the boy by light years. Staying will not help in Arekk's case. Solemnly, the padawan walked away.
"I understand. I am so sorry.."
