She could understand the girl's frustration and confusion. But what choice did she have or were given?
It would have been quite different if the girl hadn't been so adamant about bounty hunters and all.
Then of course, if the said troopers for what ever reason hadn't gone commando dropping on her ship...sure, she wouldn't have done what she did.
Not if they had come knocking at her door, she wouldn't. There would have been no justification in shaking them off like she did and taking off.
But what was done was done and most likely the poor girl was now as much a wanted outlaw in her own system as Marina was.
Did she feel bad? of course she did. But she wasn't a daughter of a Duke made just to wear party gowns and get all dolled up, no.
Even her brother had not only studied abroad...but had gone to some traditional family male heir monastery thingy, or what-not, for Lord-knows-what, to some undisclosed sector of the galaxy. But her brother had come back all ready to take on his father's responsibility. It was some kind of a male bloodline thingy that the females in the House just accepted through tradition. It was never talked about. Or at least the males never did...not to the females.
But as far as Marina and her sister, including her mother and supposedly her late grandmother too, had all been through extensive training in avoiding kidnapping or just being forcibly taken. This although took place on their system, Alderaan. They didn't go away for years like the men in the family did.
Her family would not have allowed Marina to go star hopping and exploring on her own without some extensive counter measure training tactics on the matter.
"Skye, I'm really sorry.
If the authorities wanted to just talk, they would have come knocking. They gave me no choice....Honestly, I didn't want you to get into trouble. I'm sorry. " Marina couldn't apologize enough to the girl, as she had in many ways turned her known world upside down.
But it were obvious that Skye was not only ticked off on account of the accident, but of the fact that she was now a fugitive in her own system.
"I don't know how to fix it, Skye...you have to believe me. if I could I would." Marina kept talking as the girl gulped her thirst away.
Then out of the blue...or so it seemed at first; the ship seemed to have hit that strange turbulence again. Only this time, the items weren't randomly being shaken, they were oblivious to the ship's generated gravitational field. they were floating like they were being-
"Gasp... Oh shoot!..." Marina realized what was happening and quickly almost jumped backwards.
"Oh dear lord.... oh my...." She then got hold of her nerves and approached the girl again, putting her hand on her shoulder.
But the girl replied it was fine, that she would take care of it....before the floating items gave way to the gravity once more.
"Frak, me!..." Marina cursed nearly under her breath. But it wasn't to hide it from the girl...just that she rarely dished outbursts like that.
"What kind of talk is that?!....
...and do you know you're force connected?.... " It was rather quite funny as to how Marina went from shock to asking if the girl knew she was connected somehow to the force. So was this how it happened when someone found out they were force sensitive? Marina didn't know that Skye knew what she had done, as the girl was in many ways, still somewhat distraught.
"Gah...this is crazy..." She then said, fixing a loose lock of hair from near the girl's eyes.
"All of this...last night's (they had been in a jump for hours) mugging...the troopers...now this force thingy...too, too much!" Marina didn't know what to say or do really, say for picking up the items on the floor again.
They were going to come out of the jump any time now, and frankly anything was up for grabs as to what was going to happen next.
"Well for one thing.... you're in no condition to do anything, should we somehow be boarded. And listen to me...and listen carefully. If the First order should discover that you're a force user...they will surely take you away...somewhere...they'll want to exploit you..your abilities to suit them. Skye...listen to me...I won't let them get that chance...I won't." She said that almost sounding like an oath. It was obvious that she was set on protecting the poor child.
No way was she going to have the First Order or anyone exploit the girl...not on her watch.
