It had been some time since Kaine had walked the planet of Commenor. Certainly things here seemed to have changed for the better, if this charity auction he'd seen on the HoloNet was any indication. Gathering a few loyal and trusted vode, he'd booked passage to Commenor to see what could be done. Most of the Clan accounts and holdings were long gone, but they still had some of their assets squirreled away that had gone untouched.

*Kaine and his four vode made their way into the Embassy and found seats at a table lined with various bottles of alcohol. Purloining several, the buckets came off, and the five began a lively round of drinking games. Kaine participated only perfunctorily, scanning the room, following the speeches, and making mental notes on what he saw. There was a lot to take in.*

Well, let's see how this goes.  Kaine said to no one in particular, continuing to watch the proceedings, and the growing crowd, with interest.

 

Caz brushed a strand of hair behind her ear as she scanned the room for her husband.She knew he'd be where the alcohol flowed freely.She spotted him at a table... well she actually heard his boisterous laughter first.Drinking games were his favorite. She shook her head and started to him.She stopped behind him and stooped down next to his ear.  

 

 

Fancy meeting you here, Mr. Australis.Wanna buy a girl a drink? 

 

 

She knew better than to chastize him for his drinking habits.He was a good hearted man... but he had his vices.And she loved him anyway.

She slid into the empty seat next to him.

 

I'm going to enjoy spending your money tonight, love.... and for such a good cause.  

 

She leaned over and planted a kiss on his cheek and smiled.

 

Now, about that drink?

One of Kaine's vode spotted his wife approaching and elbowed him in the ribs. He'd been watching the drinking game and hadn't noticed her approach. Kaine turned his cheek to let his beloved kiss it, then slid the bottle he'd been working on her way.

He admired his beloved, she brought out the best in him. His attention already turned away from the auction, away from even the drinking games with his brothers, and focused solely on his wife. Caz meant the galaxy to him, and she could melt his old heart with a look, and freeze his blood cold with a glare.

Help yourself, cyar'ika. Open bar.He grinned mischeviously at her, his eyes twinkling.

 

I haven't bid on any of the lots, we were sort of getting to that, but Mereel over there was talking himself up, so we had to have shots, you understand.

An inadvertent belch Kaine failed to stifle gave truth to his admission.

A lot of shots.

He hiccuped.

An absolute shebsload of shots! Said Mereel, before thunking face first into the table.

 

Immediately, Kaine and the other Mandos stood and roared loudly!

KADALE!!! (Casualty!)

Kaine grabbed Caz up in his arms and kissed her. Then he looked into her eyes.

I win. Want to play again? Or shall we be serious?

Caz shook her head at Mereel.She poured herself a glass and lifted it toward him."You, my friend are a trouble maker and a bad influence on my husband."She winked at him and turned her attention back at Kaine.She loved the crinkle by his eyes when he smiled at her and how her heart skipped a beat when she was near him.Their relationship was beautifully simple.He was the forever warrior to her healer.He was rough around the edges and she was the softeness that grounded him.

 

Sounds like I got here just in time, my love.I shall start bidding and spend all the money you have made over the years and we will be forced to live a simple life in a cabin in the woods.Doesn't that sound lovely?  

 

She giggled, knowing that living in the woods was the exact opposite of what her husband wanted... but she loved to tease him that they would someday end up there.  

 

She finished her drink just as he pulled her into him and kissed her.  

 

I think we can go one more round, my love.But then I want to bid on some things, okay? 

 

Caz settled on Kaine's lap and poured herself a drink.

Content, Kaine settled down and refilled both their drinks.

 

Anything for you. Except the cabin, i'm not ready to be put out to stud just yet. He winked.

 

Eventually, he knew he'd give up travelling and fighting and leading vode into battle, but there was no way he was letting on to Caz that he'd at least thought about retiring one day. No sense letting the opposition know you were prepared to surrender at some point, after all. He loved her, of course, and her happiness meant the galaxy to him, but General Kaine Australis wasn't quite domesticated all the way, just yet.

Have you seen anything you like here today, apart from me, of course?

 

The auction itself seemed to be going rather well, and it was a worthy cause. Australis didn't have much beyond credits to donate, maybe a few tonnes of military rations. Not that Kaine envied the children of Manda'yaim eating basic ration packs, he supposed, food was food, even if it did taste like solidified strill farts.

Kaine took a swig of his drink. Somehow the whiskey they'd been drinking had been replaced by a very good whiskey; tasted to Kaine like Whyren's Reserve, some of the best Corellian whiskey money could buy.

Oya, that's the good stuff.

Caz took a sip of her drink and looked at her husband, another smile spreading across her face.She couldn't help but feel the love from him in everything he said to her.

 

There are a few baubles and sparkly things that caught my eye.Nothing super enticing, but that's not the point here is it?I'd just as soon donate the money I've brought and walk out on your arm to be honest, my love..... and I just might.My concern is the children get what they need.You know that.

 

She looked around the room, taking in the energy of the people around her, the cacophony of laughter from the other groups.She looked at what was up for auction, finally deciding that she was indeed just going to make a donation.  

 

My love, I think I will just give them money.... let's just enjoy our fun instead of focusing on what's up for auction.Is that okay?

Kaine considered his wife's words. Sensible, and to the point. It wouldn't do to make a scene of throwing money around. He'd make a point of finding the man in charge and making the donation. A couple million credits and a few tonnes of supplies would be a suitable gift for their vode. And it would make Caz happy which was one of the things the old vet lived for.

Alright, we'll make a quiet donation.

He slammed down the quality whiskey and poured another, bouncing Caz playfully in his lap.

 

Kaine looked across at his boys. Jaster had joined Mereel asleep on the table. Ja'ak was playing with his datapad, Vevut was staring at Kaine.

Vevut, get them boys to a bed. You too Ja'ak. I'll see you later.

The boys took the dismissal in stride, none too gently woke their fellows, and departed, the foursome jerkedly and none too easily making their way slowly and sloppily out of the hall. Kaine looked back to Caz and continued bouncing her.
 

More?

Caz smiled.He knew the way to her heart.She knew that the means by which Kaine had aquired his riches was maybe not the most moral or ethical, and she meant to cleanse his Karma by spending it for good causes. 

 

I think that's a brilliant idea my love.And no, I've had quite enough.One of us has to be able to get us home.  

 

She looked at him and kissed his forehead.Thank you, my love.You are very good to me.

As he wandered around the ballroom he was looking for a friendly face to strike up a chat.Suddenly he saw Kaine Australis and a woman he did not know interacting in a rather "friendly" manor.He also was trying to find Amanda Kryze he wanted to meet the woman who bid on him but for now he would talk to the other Captain.He walked up behind the Other Mandolorian then saw the extent of Kaine Australis and Caz Australis interaction and he tried to mask his surprise as he said."Kaine! It is most good to see you in this place.I do not believe that you have yet introduced me to this woman with which you keep company."  He pulled up a chair and began to talk to the others.

I try, Caz'ika. You deserve the best.

 

Just then, Kaine saw Quoron approach and winced inwardly. Clearly, he wasn't getting any quality time just yet. Caz might be done drinking, which was probably for the best, Vevut and the boys weren't here to lug him out, he'd probably end up needing a hand. Quo would have a few rounds with him though, so at least there was the Whyren's, in place of the other activities his mind was beginning to wander towards with Caz in his lap.

 

Masking his wince, Kaine forced a brotherly smile. 

 

Admiral!

Kaine found a reasonably clean vessel and pushed it and the bottle of Whyren's over to Quoron.

This is my wife, Caz. Cyar'ika, this is Quo Viszla. He's the one in charge of Manda'yaim's navy. Sometimes, I even let him tell me what to do.

He laughed mirthfully, grinning across the drink-laden table at his Viszla brother.

Kaine had great respect for Quoron. In the short time they'd worked together and fought together they'd built a promising professional relationship. Kaine liked the way Quoron did things, blocking his attempts to get frisky with Mrs Australis notwithstanding.

What brings you here, vod?

Off the stage and to drink she went! Nervous beyond anythi g standing up there...she felt embarrassed! A mandalorian like her nervous about being on a stage? Then again it wasn't a warzone....Or a cramped service area she had to get into, she felt most comfortable there

However she had a idea...she walked around looking for the man she just bit on, wasn't hard really, she spotted the green man and moved towards him but stopped a few feet away taking a breath then walked forward

we got room for one more here?

Amanda asked with a smirked on her face

He typically was not one to engage in much drinking but today would be an exception.He was happy to see Kaine in a non-combat setting."Kaine I am here so that my home world will be in better condition." He paused and surveyed the table.He intended to chat with the other officer then recommend he excuse himself to fulfill his family commitment.

 

His eyes then wandered to Amanda.She did look rather fetching and it make his heart-beat quicken."We always have room for one more when Kaine is footing the bill. I hope I'm worth the ship repairs."His night was getting better and he thought of a way to bolster the fledgling Navy as well.  "On that note would you like to join me on a naval operation as an engineer?I am unable to offer you a candlelit dinner but I can provide dinner and a show if you are so inclined."  

 

Who ever that woman was she made Kaine happy and he would not let the evening's formalities stand in the way of the officer's happiness. "Ma'm I would like you to know that Kaine is an excellent commander who's actions make my life much safer."  Despite the difficulties he faced Quoron was feeling happy that night.

She smirked and chuckled, quite handsome up close rather then on the stage, she took a seat close to quoron. She glanced over to him as she took another drink from a server and smiled sipping it

well certainly so! I think your worth 10 but I must be fair

She listened to his offer and blinked a bit, a offer for the navy? She was speechless! She stumbled over her words for a bit before she sighed out a deep breath and smiled

id be honored! Working for the navy would be such a great honor....as for not having a candlelit dinner....I hate to say but I'm not fully for that mushy stuff....but that dinner and show your offering well truelly a man's like you one would be stupid to deny that offer

Kaine smiled across at Amanda, and shoved the bottle Quoron was about to drink from towards her, giving Quo a cheeky wink.
 
Drink up, ner vod. It seems we'll be working together in the grand old Mando navy.
 
I try to keep Quo out of trouble, that's true. Someone has to. I hear you'll be keeping us up and running. Good engineers are worth their weight in aurodium ingots.

Kaine wasn't like most soldiers. He valued the non-combatant support roles as much as he did a frontline commando. One was useless without the other, and their value to any Clan, any organization, even one so large as the Mandalorian Empire could not be understated. Amanda would find a warm welcome with him. 

We can do candlelit dinners, if you like, vod, but boozing is generally the order of the day. The somewhat inebriated Kaine grinned over the half-finished bottle of Whyrens, as he bounced Caz on his knee.

My beloved Caz here is a fixer of sorts too, but flesh and bone rather than armor and circuitry.

Caz smiled at her husband and then at his friends.
 

It's a pleasure to meet you both.I hope you are enjoying your evening.... Amanda, it seems you have found something to bid on, then?

 

Caz was used to military talk when she was with her love.It never really escaped them no matter where they were.She usually just smiled and nodded.It wasn't a life that she particularly loved, but she loved her husband.She was a healer, a peacemaker and a lover....but she was also trained to fight if necessary.Given the choice she would always resort to mediation over violence.Kaine knew this and never forced her to be any other way... that beautiful simplicity again.

 

She was pulled from her thoughts hearing Kaine mention what she was.

 

She smiled.. "Yes, he needs someone to keep the troops in top shape, doesn't he?

 The auctioneer was not sure what to do. The person for the mystery lot was nowhere to be seen and it was just confusing people in the crowd. Sweat began to develop on the man's forehead. What was he going to do now? This might tank his set career! He looked over to Gray to see what he was suppose to do now. Oh how bad this was. It was not good for the auction to have this long of a pause in it.

 

 Gray wanted to respond to Lady Kay and Baiko no Kaho right away, but he could feel the panic coming off of the auctioneer. He said to the two women, " One second ladies. I need to do something." He got onto his com system and said in a lower volume for them to move onto the "boy." After that he put the com away and smiled at the ladies again. " Sorry about that. Kay, me and Baiko are going to be grandparents! My adopted daughter Yasha is pregnant. Isn't that the best news you have ever heard?" Pride and joy were oozing out of him by this point. He really wanted her to be excited too at the prospect of becoming a great aunt. Although she had no real reason to be as excited about it as him.

 

 The auctioneer got the message from his associates and walked back up to the mic. With a smile he said, " Sorry about that Ladies and Gentlemen. It appears our mystery lot had something very important come up and was unable to make it tonight. But do not worry! It seems we have a replacement! For our last lot of the night Teagan Stoirm !" A young man was shoved through the curtain onto the stage and he stumbled forward. The auctioneer clapped and then said, " Teagan why don't you come up over here and tell us a bit about yourself so we can get the lot started?" The auctioneer stepped back to give the young man room to use the mic. Hopefully this fixed things a bit and got the auction back on track.

 Working in the back to keep all of the equipment running was what Teagan was tasked with for the evening. He was perfectly at home doing the work and he enjoyed that it was helping to get some credits and resources to help out Mandalore. Thing had gotten pretty heated up out there though it seemed based on how the auction people were reacting to things. They had even given this one young woman extra attention because it seemed she had brought in a lot. Then things got quiet though when they got to the final bid. Adora was suppose to be the mystery bid even though she didn't know she was going to be, but she hadn't shown up to the event for some reason. He didn't blame her as the Mandalorians were not so use to the idea of a charity auction. What were they going to do now?

 

 No sooner had Teagan thought that than he was suddenly being shoved out of the curtain onto the stage. He froze up seeing all of the people out there in their fancy clothing. He was wearing a nice gray suit himself with a blue tie and vest, but it was not nearly to the level of class as most of the people out there. An awkward smile came to his face and he gave the crowd an even more awkward wave without meaning to. Great he was looking pretty foolish right now. Then the auctioneer guy asked him to come up to the mic and say something. What was he suppose to tell these people?

 

 Teagan walked up to the mic stiffly and cleared his throat. He was feeling very nervous about all of this. "He-hello! My name is Teagan Stoirm of Clan Raxis. I was born and raised on Doldur but joined up with them after a nasty civil war on my homeworld. It was really bad.... But not as bad as the one on Mandalore! That is why we are here right? To help the starving children because of that whole affair.... Anyways, I'm an engineer and sometimes a combat engineer. Also I seem to be involved in a lot of crashes. They aren't my fault though! I was never doing anything to cause the crash. Maybe I'm just cursed or something. But I'm rambling now. Definitely rambling.... I'll shut up now and let all of you nice people figure out if you want to bid on me or not." Teagan's face had progressively gotten more and more red from blushing as he spoke. By the time he walked away from the mic he was as red as the freshest cherry. He tried to keep his eyes down as if that would hide some of his embarrassment.

Kay bowed her head to Baiko no Kaho . It seemed as though the lady didn't notice that Gray Raxis had waved her over. But that was alright. Their minds were obviously preoccupied with something.

She didn't sit or anything while Gray excused himself. Instead she just sort of stood there, wondering what was up.

And then he told her. Kay's jaw dropped slightly as she looked from Gray to Baiko and back again. There was a lot of information that she was missing. Afterall it had been well over a decade since she had seen Gray last. "Grand ..parents? You two are married?...Adopted daughter?...W-what?" Kay wasn't sure if she needed to sit down or not. For one thing, she was way, way out of the loop. "I mean, congrats. I'm sure that you'll be great grandparents." She gave them a smile, though her mind was pondering over whenever the time would come that she'd become a grandparent. No doubt she'd really need to sit down on that day.
