trp - Sana and Aric
Aric rolled his shoulders, adjusting the autocannon slung across his back. How he managed to look so good after a week-long op digging out an Imperial cell in Balmorra's trenches, Sana figured she'd never know. Sweaty, dirty, blood-stained, and tired was about where she stood right now.
"Real food," Aric said, digging a ration bar out of his pack and tearing off a piece, "First thing."
"Not a chance," Sana said, matching his long-legged pace, "I'm heading to the refresher. Food can wait."
"How bout I start some nerfsteaks while you get cleaned up?"
"Now that's my kind of man," Sana said with a grin.
High pitched squeals turned them around on high alert. A trio of young female twi'leks raced towards them. Sana glanced around, looking for what they could be running away from. They skidded up to Aric, close distance revealing not fear but wide glowing smiles.
"Could we have your autograph?" one of them said, thrusting a datapad at Aric.
He glanced over at Sana in horror. "Uh, I really don't think..."
"We saw Havoc Squad on the HoloNet with the Supreme Chancellor, and you're our favorite!"
The flirtatious shuffling was too much for Sana. She lost it.
"Major," Aric growled out of the side of his mouth, "stop laughing."
Sana tried to muffle her giggles, but it was a lost cause.
"Please Captain Jorgan! Please! Please! Please!"
"Fine," he grumbled as he grabbed the datapad and scrawled his name.
"Oo! Oo! Mine too!" He quickly signed the other two and then froze as the girls hugged him before running off.
Sana was propped up against a nearby wall, wheezing.
"Of all the ridiculous things," he grumbled, "I liked this job a lot better when no one knew who we were. Could get stuff done without....are you done yet?"
"You've got a..." She pointed at the glittery flower that had been tucked into his armor and lost it all over again.
"Damn it, woman!" he growled, yanking the flower off and stomping towards the spaceport, his mate's hilarity following him.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?
