Just a little silliness
Remi & JK Crew, no spoilers that I can think of unless the names of the Crew is a spoiler. Takes place just after the events of the last two affection stories.
“You know what I hate about Nar Shaddaa?” Kira asked perching on a large crate of rations. They were checking through the supply deliveries before taking off. More accurately, Remi was checking and Kira was talking.
“I wouldn’t let you cheat everyone in that Cantina out of their credits?” Remi asked smiling to herself. It appeared her former Padawan was not above hustling those who would take advantage of a young innocent woman, Jedi or not.
“No,” Kira made a face as Remi shooed her off the crate so she could check it. “It’s the dirt hidden behind the colorful lights, the stale air and the smell of dead things they cover up with filters and incense, Voss was so fresh and alive. This place makes me feel like I waded through a sewer.” Remi nodded with understanding. She popped open the crate and sifted through cartons inside making sure they were the kind she ordered all the way through and not just on top.
When she lifted the first one, a small hairy multi-legged thing jumped onto Kira who shrieked with uncharacteristic terror. She spun around batting at herself as the creature raced around her.
“Fur-Spider, Fur-Spider!” She cried wiggling around, “Get it off me!” she was wailing in a high pitched voice. Her complete lack of composure took Remi by surprise.
“Is it dangerous?” Remi asked trying to locate the spider and failing due to Kira’s flailing and spinning.
“Venomous!” Kira shrieked again but stopped spinning, she held her hands out now afraid to move, “I feel it! I feel it! It’s in my dress, oh force I’m going to die.”
“Just be calm and move slowly, it’ll be fine.” Remi spoke in a low even voice catching Kira’s eye. She nodded and took a shallow breath.
Doc was glad for the first time to have Rusk as a member of the crew. The man was insane most of the time, he only spoke of combat efficiency and weapons but today Remi sent them to pick up the last of the supplies they needed. After the previous day’s events, Doc did not want to be left alone with Lord Scourge. The three entered the ship and let C2 and T7 scan their burdens before delivering them to the cargo bay.
“Slowly,” they heard Remi’s soothing voice, “it’ll be fine.”
Kira's voice pleaded breathlessly, “I can’t get it off, help me!”
Alarmed, he looked at Scourge and Rusk. As one, they drew their weapons and ran to the cargo bay where they were able to witness Jedi Master Remi ripping Kira’s dress off with her bare hands. Kira leaned back against a crate breathing heavily, her face flushed. She looked up at the three men who had run into the room. Remi ignored them and ran her hands over Kira’s back and sides.
“I don’t know Kira,” she said doubtfully, “Are you still feeling it?”
“No,” Kira said swallowing, “Not feeling it anymore.” She found it odd that while she was the naked one, the men were staring at her former master, she supposed she should be grateful.
Remi shrugged and stepped away. Leaving her dress on the floor, her face so red it was painful, Kira hurried out of the room keeping Scourge and Rusk between her and Doc.
Remi frowned at the dress and nudged it with her boot a few times but nothing furry or spidery emerged. Finally, she turned her attention to the newcomers.
“Oh, hey.” She said with a smile, “Good timing I just finished checking the supply shipment.” When the stares and silence had stretched for too long, she raised an eyebrow. “What?”
