Loyalty and Betrayal
Things Not To Tell Your Friend's Crush
Spoilers for JK and SW
In this AU, the parents of two of my characters from the Short Fic thread (Esma and Skari) never left the Empire. Instead, their Force-sensitive daughter became a Sith. Names have been changed, or rather retained, from their childhood. Ukaita is Esma. Also, a couple other changes in this AU, namely Lord Scourge stayed on as Wrath, his vision while still involving Esma/Ukaita does not involve a Jedi, and I've magically made his life extra long (but not immortal) and no one can sense his emotions but he still has them. Ukaita's story somewhat mixes SW and JK, but Baras is a minor irritant instead of a major player.
"Kill everything in the galaxy," Ukaita said blankly, stunned. Lord Scourge had outlined his vision for her and although she couldn't sense his emotions, she was sure that he was telling the truth. She was also sure that the man was extremely distracting. His last statement, however, had captured her full attention.
"That is his plan."
"But what would he rule then?" she asked, standing up and pacing back and forth.
"He does not care about ruling, only about power."
"Huh. I rather like ruling, myself," she said with half a grin.
The Wrath smiled slightly, "For the Sith to rule weaker beings is the natural way of things."
"Indeed," she said with a nod, "So, do we have a plan to save all life?"
"Yes, and it starts on Belsavis."
Ukaita stood, "Very well, I shall prepare for the trip."
Vette swung in the door with a mischevious grin, "Don't forget to take your plushy bunny. You always get cranky when you forget it." She bounced off while Ukaita considered all the ways she could kill the Twi'lek. She turned slowly towards Lord Scourge, wincing inwardly.
"I don't suppose it is a viscious...bunny," he said slowly, one eyebrow raised.
Ukaita sighed, "It's pink. And fluffy."
"It's just..." Ukaita clamped off her words.
Scourge's mouth twitched, "Go on."
"I like something to cuddle at night," she said defensively.
Scourge stood and walked slowly into her space. Her pulse sped up to unhealthy levels, but she stood her ground. "Leave the toy at home." He lifted her chin with his finger, slid his large calloused hand along her jawline and into her hair. "You won't need it."
I have no idea where this story is going if anywhere, but I needed something that made me grin
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?
