What's In a Name?
First time poster here, I just lurk usually.
I know its under 750 words..
The red haired smuggler frowned at the datapad screen. Thus far she had managed to avoid aquiring a surname, until some government lackey decided it was required; which was why Xynri glared at the screen that waited for either vocal or tactile input of a surname. The smuggler thought hard, her yellow eyes hidden in furious mental debate. She had been abandoned on Coruscant as an infant with no name; having been forced into the depraved underground of her birth world, she chose the moniker she'd been given as her first name. Xynri. Now she was having to choose a surname, and while many epithets raged through her thoughts. She unknowingly voiced her frustrations in two words, "Mutter grumble."
Her eyes opened in shock as the datapad beeped approvingly of the name, "Surname `Muttergrumble' approved."
Few bystanders noticed as the smuggler started banging her head of the wall after throwing the inactive datapad into the abyss of the station depths.
