Part 17. Doc and Kira
It was the second day of their journey back to Tython, Kira was well enough to walk around and eat though she still had a monstrous headache. The primitive medical supplies on the ship had Doc in a very surly mood and he constantly asked if she was ok. They sat in their shared quarters, neither of them wanting to talk about what they discovered.
Doc pulled Kira to him, the past few days had scared him badly. “We have to find Remi.” Kira said, returning his embrace.
“We’ll find her. I’m sure once the word is out she’ll probably come back on her own.” He said, but he wondered if Remi was still alive.
“We need her back,” Kira shook with anxiety. “She’s the only one who can do this. No one else is strong enough. I’ll never be as good as she was.”
“Hey wait, what? You are the best Jedi I have ever met. Remi has a destiny that’s all. But you, you’ve done more with your life against worse odds than she ever had.”
“But all those missions I failed,” Kira said her voice breaking, she had never been good at denying her emotions.
“Failed?” Doc said incredulously. “The council sent you on suicide missions! That you survived at all means you’re a great Jedi. You always managed to do some good. You saved lives on those missions. That means something.”
“I couldn’t stop them!” She sobbed into his chest.
Doc held her for a moment stroking her hair. “What do the Jedi say? As long as there is life, there is hope.”
“Jedi don’t really say that.”
“Well they should, otherwise what use am I?” He said looking down at her, his expression serious.
Kira stared up at the man she had grown to love. She finally understood why he chose to be a doctor. He would save anyone, enemy or friend, because protecting life was important. Everything else he did was just for show.
He could teach the Jedi a few things.
Kira put her head on his shoulder. “Just tell me everything is going to be ok.”
Doc sighed, “Everything is going to be ok.” He just wished he could be more confident about that.
