Mt Ceiril, Aiden Mountain range, Northern Alderaan
"Tell him I'll be ready in another minute..." She replied to her mother, who peered in for the 7th time urging her to hurry.
"We're not going to be late.... I'll fly....just a minute, mom!.."
But that minute turned to 20 and by the time she got out, her father had already taken off.
"Mom....I said we weren't going to be late. Ican't believe he left without me. Sigh... " Marina couldn't believe she was left behind.
It wasn't that she had been requested or required to go to Aldera today, but she was one of the Queen's intern and she figured she's go anyway. There was a lot going on at the Royal palace and she could learn her way around the court more. besides, she loved visiting the Queen and helping Bekka when she was around.
Marina bid her mom good-by and headed out into the hangars. Her father had taken one of the speeder sedans..as a passenger, having one of his security personnel fly him to Aldera.
Marina hopped in the next one parked inside and fired up it's engines. She hovered it near the hangar doors then activated them to open.
The gust of wind and snow rushed in, peppering her window to then only turn to water, as her speeder was sealed and the glass heated.
Giving a perimeter sensor check for any other crafts about, she gunned it.
The sedan took off almost like her ship...like a rocket...immediately getting lost in the white out. It were snowing up in the mountains.
She speed just over the range of the mountain peaks, despite the near zero visibility. But she were keen on instrument flying and in no time, spotted her father's speeder up ahead. She gunned the engines diving just under his speeder before coming up right ahead of them. She then baked to the side and decelerated for the other speeder to come along side her.
She waved and blew her father a kiss, before she zooming ahead and out of sight...

Mid valley, Aldera City...Palace Organa
Marina had put down in the palace front courtyard. Her authorized parking area when she was at the palace.
Somehow or other, she had arrived early. Early enough to see if she could lend a hand in the upcoming Council meeting. There wasn't anything she needed to do, as Bekka had already arranged everything...and there was some time to relax and chit-chat before the queen made her presence to the new assigned Council chambers.
"Wow...it's...it's so traditional..." Marina was at an awe as to the furnishings, the decor..everything.
She were informed by Bekka that these very same furnishings and antiques were the original furnishings of the latter Council, before the dark times Alderaan had endured. her majesty, Queen Organa had her staff and craftsmen take them out of storage and polish everything up to original standards. Everything spoke of Alderaan's brighter days...days that once again were here.
"I seen holograms of the palace before the dark times and it's just as beautiful as our Queen has made it now.
"By the way...where is Queen Organa? Is she going to be here before my father arrives or after?" She asked Bekka, as she were running her hands on the ornate woodwork of antiquity. It was simply the best craftsmanship she had seen anywhere. the pride of Alderaan's craftsmen were unsurpassed.
