Time mid day
Their home had been fixed, signs of troops that had gone through months passed had been apparent, months later and a few thousand credits spent, stardust had their home fixed and store restocked. Stardust was within the store moving some items around, brigh helping move some stuff with her and assist with customers throughout the store .
The holo came on, stardust looked up to it seeing kay but
..she looked disheveled. Listening her eyes went wide and hand clenched her fist in anger then let it go...what did this mean? What did it mean for everyone else now...stardust took a seat body shaking a bit and blinked
force be with us...
She mumbled and slumped back

Darben had been working hard on the store. Taking more jobs to earn more that he put towards it. Their home on Commenor. He had been working at the counter when he heard the holo come on. He looked up, watching it as Brigh and Stardust did. A flash came by, a memory. The house arrest, when Kay had seen so...out of it. He understood, slightly...and yet something broke. His first friend on Commenor, Lady Kay. The queen, close friend. One of the kindest hearts he knew.
She was to be taken away for being a puppet. It was off, and he glanced to Stardust. Yet Darben couldn't even really move. "Star...I remember that day. When the council was found dead...I did not ever believe it to be her, and yet..." And yet, he could not even speak more on it.
Posted 06 March 2019 - 09:43 AM
I remember the news...I remember visiting her for the first time after to discuss trade business and...and...seeing that shine and feeling that darkness...how she didnt remember me at all...
The customers mumbled in disbelief around the store. Stardust rubbed her cheek gently as brigh looked up to her mother and father
dad...why is the queen being taken away? What did she do?
She said with confusion in her voice

Darben nodded. He recalled it, how unfamiliar she seemed on some things after what had taken place. The merchant had always been there for her, whenever he could be and when it was within his ability to act. But hearing all of this, it cast him off to the sideline. Wondering about it all...yet in his mind, she was still a friend. Cause she was a friend before she was taken as a puppet. Was a friend who offered him a place.
He looked down to his daughter. Darben found his own words caught in his throat. "I..." He knelt down to Brigh's height, sighing. "She is going for her own safety, and the safety of others...some things happen to good people, Brigh, that make them do bad things..."
Posted 07 March 2019 - 06:32 AM
Stardust bowed her head and closed her eyes...the order had been operating with less then stellar numbers especially after the attack. With her busy else where she couldnt dedicate as much time to it as she would be able to. Looking over to brigh as she nodded her head slowly
oh...l..like when our home was attacked?
She asked as stardust teared up a bit and rubbed her eyes as she let out a sigh and looked away

Darben sighed more at hearing that. When Commenor was struck...yes, he remembered that, and it was not fond memories. No, not at all fond memories. It caused a shiver to go through him, even. Darben looked to Brigh, then to Stardust Solus Skirae as she looked away.
"Yes...much like that time. But we should not think too hard on it, not think too harshly about Lady Kay either, okay?" he asked to her, smiling gently. As gently as he could in this situation.
Posted 08 March 2019 - 06:31 AM
brigh, why dont you head to your room ok? Let me and daddy talk for a little about business
This confused brigh as usually they let her listen in on business as she helped around the place...but no wanting to disobey she nodded and headed off for her room. Once she was gone stardust sighed and moved over to her husband and wrapped her arms around him in silence for a few minutes before speaking
I thought these times were done

Darben Skirae nodded to Brigh after what Stardust Solus Skirae said. It was a sound idea for her to go. She went to her room, and then Stardust came to him. He held her, trying his best to comfort her. He may not have had the force but he could very well see she was distressed by all of this. As was he, but less so. Somehow, he was managing it.
"I believed so too, yet here we are again. Amidst chaos...but we can move on from here."
Posted 09 March 2019 - 11:03 AM
I know...we can move on but it's the fact all of that does not set right...why imprison her now? Why bot when she turned back and realized her mistake? Why not just remove her and place one of her kids?
She sighed, not having the whole picture was annoying to her. However she closed her eyes and let herself think before sighing again as she rested her head on his shoulder
maybe it's for the best right? I hear...the jedi are moving closer
Posted 10 March 2019 - 08:21 AM
Darben nodded to that. They would have to find a way to move on. "I do not know, Stardust...perhaps the people of Commenor needed her. And this is in a way, a mercy to them. To spare them of it, to begin anew. But truly, I do not know." It even surprised him, speaking such wise words. Perhaps Stardust's own Jedi-like wisdom was getting to him. The thought made him chuckle lightly, which it was hardly the time for. This was not a time for rejoicing and happiness. Hardly the time for that.
"The Jedi...as in the Silver Jedi? Yes, they are aren't they...I don't know much about them, to be honest" he mused over the fact, even when he found some notes among his own on them. Notes he never recalled making, even. But he shook his head at that. "Shouldn't be too hard to make dealings with them."

mr jedi here are we? I knew I'd rub off on you but force hahaha I didnt think that much
She offered a smirk, hee husbands hunor improving her mood just a little. Looking towards the window she took a breath and closed her eyes to think for a minute. Her eyes opened as she remembered something
darben, when you head put again I'm sending bodyguards with you...we had a incident recently and...
She trailed off...should she tell him and cause greater worry? But it was important to his safety...
Posted 13 March 2019 - 04:13 AM
Darben narrowed his eyes slightly at her. Jedi, him? He was far from such a thing. No force capabilities, no combat training except for what Stardust had taught him with a blaster. Darben sighed as she seemed to look away, to the window. Then she spoke, and he tipped his head a bit. Incident? He didn't know about this incident, what could she have meant? It worried him greatly now.
"Stardust? What incident? What do you mean?" he asked to her, trying to meet her eyes to see any emotion that might give him some kind of semblance of an answer.
Posted 13 March 2019 - 04:27 AM
Poodoo, she sighed and held a hand up to calm him down as she rubbed her eyes and took a deep breath before looking back over at him
there's some droid....known as co-2...he came and posed as you and got a little bit of info regarding the jedi a ahhh..name cant remember the damn name...he said he had his hostage which turned put to be a um...yea...servant...droid..thing...
The fact they had every detail right is what disturbed star, composing herself and sat up
in any case...I want your schedule of where you'll be...along with that I'm sending to of my best guards to watch over you
Posted 13 March 2019 - 06:29 AM
He gulped at her, he was not sure what was about to come. Darben was quiet as he waited, then it was all out. A...a droid? Posed as him...for how long had this happened? He had been away from Commenor for so long, doing work away for so long...so what had this droid done? Posing as him, what had this droid accomplished? Then he realized, it explained the notes about the Silver Jedi Order. "We...we have to warn them...the Silver Jedi, we have to warn them" Darben began to explain.
"He had notes on them he was looking into them and...and others. I'll have to look through my notes again, but he may have...oh..." He had to sit down, trying to calm himself. Someone posed as him, took his person. What had this droid done?
Posted 13 March 2019 - 07:20 AM
fething hell, get those notes to me I need to send those immediately out to them...feth had I known it wasnt just simply fething with me I'd of done something I'm a fething idiot!
She said raising her voice slightly feeling her anger rose against the droid. Hands clenched and even smoldered a little as she tried to keep herself from lighting something on fire. Closing her eyes she released some steam and calmed
ok, ok, we dont need to freak out it's just a damned droid....who's cocky...let's just warn the silver jedi and then we can hunt this bastard down
Posted 13 March 2019 - 07:32 AM
Darben Skirae nodded, trying to keep his composure. He had brought over all his notes to his office within the store, heading up the stairs to it. There he found many notes for places that this droid had been attempting to retrieve information on. The Silver Jedi Order was only one of them. He could only stare in awe. How could his connections, as a simple merchant, a tradesman, seeing all of this. Finding all of this information, how did this droid manage to do this? Darben looked into things, through all the notes. Trade routes, name's of people Commenor had dealings with, trade contracts.
"Stardust...he has covered his tracks. It's like...targets but I can't make sense of what he is aiming for. This is trade stuff, things that can be recovered easily" he explained, spreading out the datapads on a table. "We will need someone to help with this..."

Posted 13 March 2019 - 07:12 PM
That stuck out. A name, the droid had asked a name to Stardust...while impersonating him? That hit deep, that the droid had in fact confronted Stardust wearing his face, using his voice. This was a danger to this John Locke.
"Star, who is he? Who is this John Locke?" he asked to her, taking a very serious tone. Was it the next target...he was not sure. Whoever this droid was, they did well in covering their tracks.
Posted 14 March 2019 - 12:19 PM
feth I don't know,I know his name has been prominent I just cant ever what for!
She closed her eyes and clenched her fist, she was about to gather her clan and hunt the damned thing down, but first she needed to go and warn the silvers about this impending danger
we need to go, now, to get to the silver's
Posted 14 March 2019 - 07:24 PM
Darben was all for this. For warning the Silver Jedi of this thread, but something stopped him, causing him to frown. Something...What if they were too late? What if this droid had already struck, and they just had not heard of it yet.
"Star, how long ago was this?" he asked to her. Rushing ahead with this, they did not know this droids plan, at all. Plus the more equipped of the two for this was Stardust, and if the droid had even managed to escape her...
