#1750450 Do You Wanna Build a Snowman? (Order of the Nighthawk)

Posted by Tan'yill on 14 March 2018 - 11:09 AM

Maybe it was the brandy. Maybe it was impulse. Maybe it was ignorance. Maybe a bit of everything! Tan went quiet for a moment, lowering her head and having her arms crossed over her chest. One familiar with the meanings of the silent lekku movements would clearly notice that she felt uncomfortable. She felt compassion for the young togruta. Even if they were of different species, they had some similarities other than being females and one could not mistake Ashedas reaction for something other than pure regret.


From the arms crossed position that she was in she glanced up on Tula. Feeling sorry for her too that had taken offence by Ashedas rather tactless comment. Glancing over to Asheda, then up to Tristram who was standing there like a friggin' giant, then back at Asheda again. Seeing Tristram stand like that brought some unpleasant memories back from her own past, though Tristram wasn't violent or anything... Tan opened up her arms, deciding she had to do something and also didn't want to look enclosed.


''Hey! Big guy? I'm sure she didn't mean it! C'mon, sit down. Sit back down...'' she exclaimed. Standing just beside her, from her sitting position she reached for Tristrams belt and tugged him backwards to put some emphasis on what she meant.


At some time frictions and conflicts would apear in every group of persons, whether the people in the group had been friends for a lifetime or not. But there was no need to start this out with a conflict, she thought.


''She said sorry...'' Not wanting to choose sides, Tan just pointed out the fact why she defended the togruta. Further more, maybe Tristram was unaware of his own size compared to hers right there and then. She had to check with Tula later how come she took a great deal of seriousness in Ashedas meant to be joke.

It was rather funny seeing Tula and Tristram interact with each other. The impression Tan had got and the picture she had built up of him, pointed to him being radically different than many men from her past.


She turned her attention to the togruta. A fair answer, she guessed and gave Asheda a quiet nod. Glad she didn't take offence by the question. For being so young, Asheda seemed like a balanced girl with quite alot of experience. Slight surprise caught her when she saw the glass being levitated over to Tula. So she was a force user? That would explain it!


Tristram didn't had time to answer her questions before things went icy again, this time inside. She glanced at Tristram when he stood up and rushed away to the pantry. Looking back at Asheda and mimed ''Smooth.''. The moment called for another sip, a 'sip' that resulted in an empty glass. Not quite the time to ask Tristram bring the bottle of brandy with him. The tips of Tan's lekkus started to nervously curl a little when he came back in a more stern mood.


''Hey... We don't wanna freeze in here too, right?''

''Glad you found something you liked! Cheers!'' she exclaimed to Tula when she settled down beside her husband. Also giving Tula a look telling her she didn't need to worry about the whistle, atleast not from Tan's side. Tristram was a handsome man. Sure! But even if Tan were looking for a relationship, which were still a sensitive matter, she wasn't sure if it would work with him. Certainly not if he realy enjoyed climates like that on Ilum! 


The man could drink, though! Seeing him empty the glass of whiskey in two giant gulps. ''Well, I'm impressed you could bring those droids over here! Capable ones to. Where'd you get them?'' she said taking another sip of her brandy, feeling it's burning sweet sensation down her throat. Warming her up from from the inside and out.


''Sounds good to me. Me and 'Balex' could get things up and running pretty quick as soon as your construction droids are done.'' Truth was that they were a damn good team when it came to reparation and installation. Working together for a couple of years had made the trio good companions. One of the reasons that Tan didn't saw any need to expand the crew of the 'Ryvius'. She was curious though what kind of missions that laid ahead of her in this Order. Contributing to the Orders causes could be good for the smuggling business as well, why she didn't cut any lines within her network of contacts.


Contemplating for a moment, taking another sip of the amber beverage. ''Any word from the others?''

She grabbed a bottle of Corellian brandy from the cupboard and poured it up over ice in a short glass for herself. Trusting Tula to find and blend whatever her man would prefer, and also Asheda seemed to prefer a proper drink for the occasion. Going back out to them she couldn't help but to lower her head and smile a little at Tristrams whistle. What girl would not smile at such a thing?


Thanking Asheda for the compliment on 'Ryvius'. ''Thanks! It fills its purpose. Never had let me down.'' Of course, much thanks to Tan's mechanical talents, it was not a new ship.


Taking one of the chairs and kicking up her feet on the opposite one, she left the booth for the others.


Taking a sip of the brandy, ice cubes clinking. ''So, Tristram? You're the boss, what are you plans?'' 


The ladies were well dressed. Ashedas attire would sure have catched any mans attention, including Tristrams. She definately had the body for it too and Tan did fully understand if she wanted to accentuate it. Although, just wearing a robe over that must have been very cold. The curiousity about what she made for a living and why she was in the Order grew stronger.


''That robe must be insanely warm, Asheda...'' She said, smiling with a glint in her eyes.

Feeling alot more relaxed and at home aboard 'Ryvius', she gave the other twi'lek a smile, accepting her help in the pantry. Tula seemed like a happy, easy-going girl without troubles. Thinking about herself though, Tan knew it was easy for some to hide their past. She couldn't be much younger than herself, she thought. 


''Mlisu'a ka jasshi'rr'' she said in ryl while they were standing next to eachother in the pantry. Congratulating her to the said marriage.


''I got stuff that is both stronger and will keep you warm, that's for sure...'' Tan opened a cupboard above them revealing a variety of beverages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. The time was not that early for a drink, she thought. ''What do you drink, Tula?''

Being in her own thoughts while they walked toward the ship, Tan didn't hear the togrutas dirty comment.


She entered the ship via a boarding ramp under the ships belly. The ships generator still buzzing ever so slightly to keep the warmth.

The YV-929 armed freighter was divided in two levels, the upper level containing two cargoholds separated by a corridor leading up to the cockpit. Two docking rings at the back of the ship. The lower level contained the crew compartments, with a lounge and small pantry at the front. Behind that was a corridor with two rooms on either side, accomodating the crews berths. Further back was the engine room. 

They were greeted by her FA-4 pilot droid unit which however did not speak basic, but instead let out the greeting in a wave and some buzzing and beeping noises. ''Hey, pal! These are our guests, Asheda, Tula and Tristsam.'' The pilot droid did few things but to act as a pilot and navigator so it headed back up to the cockpit again where it also had it's charging station. 'Ryvius' was slightly smaller than the YT-1300, but it had served its purpose well for Tan and her two droids.


With a small sigh when entering the crew lounge, Tan switched some buttons to turn on the lights. ''Well, welcome aboard 'Ryvius'!'' It was not yesterday she had guests aboard. 'Balex' and the FA-4 unit was perfectly good companions on her trips, though sometimes missing her Duro friend and former mentor in the smuggling business.


She connected 'Balex' to his charging station in the lounge and turned him off for the moment. ''Make yourselves comfortable, I'm just gonna get redressed. Be back in a bit!'' Tan went to her quarters, not big either but containing the necessary for comfortable traveling. She took off the winter gear she wore and switched to her regular smugglers attire, casual and functional, yet trousers and top flattering to her female stature. ''So, you guys fancy something to eat or drink?'' Entering the main lounge again.

Stereotypical? She couldn't argue with that for some of her colleagues, sure. But to Tan it sounded like Asheda had some preconceptions about her profession. However, it was something about this rather cocky togruta woman that she liked, much resembling Tan herself. She wondered what Ashedas own profession was, arriving in a fighter and exiting in a simple robe.


Tan raised her eyebrows at Asheda, following up on her comment. ''Oh, yeah? What are those, then?'' Not expecting a sensible answer, seeming the comment was taken out of thin air. Tan was certainly not the twi'lek to just drop things if anyone challanged her, often having a comeback of sorts, though with friendly intents to the togruta. ''My 'perk' is parked over there and it's warm, I got some Corellian tea... and some stronger stuff if the assembly fancies that instead.''


She smiled slightly at Ashedas comment about her pink kin, Tan didn't expect to turn up into some argue about love. Did Asheda mean herself as 'blue skinned woman'? Had Asheda and Tristram had an affair? Was she even jealous? The thoughts of love soon brought her a serious face, though. Not having the best experiences from it in the past. ''Enough of these icy winds, c'mon! You two can 'interact' more on the ship, Asheda...'' Turning and clapping Balex on the shoulder to head back to the ship.

Tan glanced at the droids working on the site, they were all familiar models to her. Some people didn't like their company, but Tan was fond of them for alot of reasons.


''Sure, lead the way.'' Guessing he would prefer his own ship. She thought for a second, 'Ryvius' was usually off-limits to others but this was her own choice joining this band of women and a man and felt comfortable with them, having tidying the ship up before. ''Or else I've got room on 'Ryvius'.'' She said and nodded her head back at the armed freighter.

Turning to Asheda and accepting the hand-shake with a comeback. ''Hah! Considering the temperature we'll see how long I stay!'' Tan said jokingly. ''You don't seem to enjoy the weather yourself, Asheda?'' Meaning she noticed Ashedas slight shivering.


Tan nodded at the BLX-droid standing beside her. ''And this is 'Balex', my companion. One of two accually, I got a FA-4 pilot unit at the ship. Good to have the support on longer trips.'' 'Balex'politely offered the togruta his mechanical hand which by now would be rather freezing shaking. ''Nice to meet you, shivering Asheda''. The droid uttered frankly. ''Sorry, he tends to be too frank at times, saying what comes to his mind. Don't worry about him.'' Tan said and nudged the droid in the side with her elbow.


Another recognizeable face appeared, another twi'lek at the top of it. Tan smiled and raised a hand in a waving gesture at the other twi'lek. ''Arni'soyacho, Tula! Nice to meet you!'' Interesting group! But except from Tristram, only women? Tan couldn't help to smile a little for herself while wondering if the Order specificaly searched for and recruited humanoid women.

Tan noticed the familiar sound of an E-wing and glanced at its decent. A togruta? It was not yesterday she saw one, but what she knew about them was good. Their appearence resembling her own race, their warriorlike history and some awesome tattoos. She looked young. Tan turned her head to the togruta and smiled slightly.


''Hey! Well, I guess so. You too?''


Normally, she was rather reserved around strangers and didn't reveal alot but something told her that these two was good people. Unlike some particular corellians from her past. Of course, what they would get to know about her would be hers and only hers to decide.


''I'm Tan'yill, just call me Tan... now who might you be?''

The YV-929 freighter cut through some clouds and made a turn against the mountain range where the sensors picked up the signal from. Descending below the mountain peaks it cruised it self with ease through the landscape before finding the plateau. The ships thrusters slowed it down to a halt, landing gears down and violently whirling up the snow under the ships belly before it was set down safely.


Tan shut the off the engines and looked out the window, at the mountain peaks and the spot where the base was to be build, it was a well-thought out place with just one minus; the temperature!

She left the cockpit for her quarters to put on something warmer, a sweater and navy blue parka replacing her smugglers jacket, a thick grey scarf and a pair of gloves would do. Fetching ''Balex'', the BLX-series labor droid, they made their way to the ships ramp and exited the ship. Walking over to the man who recruited her.


She smiled. ''So, this is it huh? No worries one'll get heat sick.''

First of all I hope Ron Howard yet another time lives up to his reputation as a great director! First director with an Oscar who directs a Star Wars movie, that is pressure and alot of expectations resting on him!

I realy want to see familiar alien species from the original trilogy, some familiar places but ALOT of Corellia!

Tan finished the stuff she had to do on her datapad before putting it away again. Shifting her crossed feet on the chair opposite her by the table and taking another sip from thebottle of Ebla beer while gazing on the nearby guests still enjoying themselves at the cantina. It felt good to see the city stabilize and getting on its feet again. Good to be home again, but she knew she had to leave again soon. The last of the beer went down easy and with that she decided it was time to call it a night, and left the cantina for the walk home to her brother.

The cantina was still well crowded and Tan's eyes went from looking down in to her datapad to occasionaly observing the folks around. She was interrupted by the serving droid placing the opened Ebla beer on the table. She glanced up and paid the droid, smiling slightly.


''Thanks.'' And the droid left to continue it's busy evening.


Tan grabbed the bottle, took a couple of well-deserved sips before setting it down and continued browsing the datapad, thoughtfully running her middle finger around the bottles opening. She was too sleep at her brothers place tonight, which was a stroll away from the cantina. The night was young, though. As long as none of her old 'friends' turned up she was fine here. She had heard that many of them had left town, and even Corellia.

It was great to be home again. After several weeks in Hutt Space running contraband for the hutts she was finaly able to go home, to see her so missed brother again. Having shared a meal and a couple of hours at the Harvest Festival together before he headed off to work at the shipyard.


She entered the cantina and took the few steps down to the main floor with rather unexpected elegance, considering her rather rugged looks in her practical smugglers attire. The cantina was busy. Very busy. A thought of her youth crossed her mind for a second. Those days were long gone, sure... but even so she'd rather not bump into some of her old 'acquaintances'. Her brown eyes searched for somewhere to settle down, as two rodians left their table in the corner she was quick to occupy it. She leaned back and kicked up her feet to rest on the other chair before bringing out her datapad from the jackets inside pocket. Checking the logs and balances from the last trip, while the lekkus rested on her chest, tops slightly twirling.

Her stay in Hutt Space have generated in some good credits and valuable contacts. The hutts paid well, if you kept your word and completed the job. Though, Tan wasn't fond of their ways and precense but after all, who was?

A serving droid came forth asking her if she wanted anything.


''Yeah...'' she thought of the beverages, and choosed to stay on the safe side. ''Get me a bottle of Ebla beer.'' And the droid cruised off through the cantinas guests to fetch her order.
