Remi & Scourge plus some SIS guest appearances
“You certainly took your time getting here,” Lord Scourge said, he was not upset but curious.
“It’s crowded,” Remi said innocently. She put their drinks down. She did not drink alcohol so she ordered ‘sober’ versions of fruity drinks. They were waiting for their SIS contact to join them.
“You must have run into every large group in the crowd.” He said eyeing her. She blinked back at him taking a sip of her drink, she did not answer.
“I’m sorry,” the beautiful Twilek said shyly to the tall handsome man who asked her to dance. “I think I party too much, I’m going to go home and rethink my life, you know?”
“Uh, sure. Nice meeting you.” He said running his hand through his wavy brown hair. He looked confused but he kept his good humor.
“Nice meeting you, Bard.” She smile prettily and got up to leave.
‘Bard’ looked around at the sea of beautiful women, usually on his nights off he had no problems finding a pretty girl to pass the time. That was the fourth woman to turn down a simple dance.
Am I losing my touch?
He shook his head,
Maybe something’s just telling me I should go home.
He nodded to himself, it was a sign, he had to get up for work early tomorrow, Kothe had a new assignment for him.
As he walked out of the cantina, he did not notice the red haired woman in the back corner fall over laughing on her Sith companion.
“Mind tricks, Remi, really?” Ardun Kothe said sliding into their booth. The former Jedi was still giggling, when she finally stopped her face was red and she looked a little guilty. “Isn’t that an abuse of your powers?” He raised an eyebrow.
“If your agent Balkar, ever decided to approach any woman of will and intelligence he would not have any problems.” Scourge said pointedly. “As it is he merely flirts with them for information then never calls them despite his promises.” He glanced at Remi who started giggling all over again, he did not approve of her pranks but he would not let this agent reproach her.
Kothe sighed, he knew better than to argue with a Sith and he should not defend Balkar’s reputation. “Just promise me you won’t do that again.” He said gruffly, “Jonas works best when he’s happy.”
“Ok, ok.” Remi said stifling a smile. She tried to look serious. “This is the last time I promise.”
The SIS boss nodded and began his briefing about the information gathering they had done, he couched everything in vague terms to confuse any listeners, but then something occurred to him.
“Wait, what do you mean ‘last time’?” he asked.
Remi dissolved into giggles.
Note and Nar Shaddaa class quest Trooper Spoilers:
I had a hard time thinking what Remi would do for a Guilty Pleasure. For the most part she is not at all self-indulgent and what she does do for fun she feels no guilt about. Then I was watching Star Wars and that scene with Obi-Wan and the drug dealer cracked me up.
Also, I like Jonas as a character but there were many things about him that bothered me in the Trooper line. Namely that if you choose the light sided option and tell him the truth in Nar Shaddaa he turns around and scolds Garza for it. I mean come on man I helped you by being honest and the first f*ing thing you do is flip on me so you can what? Scold General Garza? Did you accomplish anything? No? Then keep your mouth shut like I would expect an SIS Agent to do.
And he said he would call and did not. But mostly that first part. grrrr.
