Knightless AU: Loneliness and Solitude
I wrote something short!
A few days after the last Worlds Colliding
Scourge woke to the sound of the com beeping, he was alone. He rose from his bed, thinking it odd not to see a small red haired woman curled up on her side. He answered the com in the next room, the ghostly image of his apprentice appeared. He folded his arms across his chest.
“I’ve been thinking.” Coremi began.
“And you could not do that here?”
“No, I couldn’t.” she agreed quietly, “Once I stopped the medication, I felt too much, I needed to be away from you just to put two thoughts together." She seemed embarrassed by the admission but took a deep breath and continued, "I wanted you to know that I wasn’t running, I’m transmitting my com frequency so you can contact me.”
He scowled, “And what of your training?”
“I’ll keep in practice, but I’m also tracking down some leads that might help us with our problem.” She would not talk specifics over an open channel. She tilted her head, “Honestly, would you prefer to have me weeping and raging at you right now?”
He narrowed his eyes at the projection. “No.”
Her lips quirked into a half grin, “Call me if you want me for something, I’ll let you know if I find anything on my end.” She did not wait for him to acknowledge or approve. “Go back to sleep, Sith.” She said and ended the connection.
He returned to his bed thinking of the previous night, he held her while she cried, cursing him for his lies, her face buried in his chest. He shifted restlessly every position seemed wrong, his arms were empty and the presence that had grown so familiar was gone. It was not what he would have preferred.
