Hey Sis," said Mila Stariser as she reached put to hug her sister.
Mira embraced Mila, her shivering visible even through her thick Jedi robes. The frigid winter's of Alderan were quite harsh even on one who was trained to withstand such conditions.."It's fantastic to see you again Mil."
"The sexy beasts unite once again," said Mila happily as she embraced her sister.
"It's actually the sexy twosome," said Mira laughingly as she withdrew from the embrace.
"It's trademarked," said Mila grinning.
"If anyone says otherwise I can show them the blade of my saber," said Mira pointing to one of her lightsabers which hung on one of the buckles of her utility belt.
"Thought Jedi were supposed to be benevolent snobs who meditated all day."
"Joining the Jedi is the most fulfilling thing that has ever happened me," replied Mira.
"Whatever you say," said Mila with a shrug," What do you say we get a drink sis?"
"Great," said Mira following Mila to the small circular building which stood outside house Organa.
Mira and Mila entered the cantina, warmth instantly washing over them in a lovely and cosy way. Mila led Mira over to the stools of the bar and flicked two credit chips at the bartender who then went to bring out two Cassandra Sunrises .
"I appreciate it," said Mira removing her hood letting loose a long brown ponytail.
"Don't mention it sister," replied Mila taking a long sip of the bubbly orange drink," Takes a bite out of the winter chill you know."
"Something everyone needs at this time of year," said Mira with a sigh. "Especially, since Jedi can't celebrate holidays with family."
"Which we aren't doing right now," said Mila with a wink.
"Look I understand the danger of attachment," said Mira looking into her drink as if she was looking for something inside." The Jedi way is the perfect way to live. It keeps from falling into darkness."
"Your telling me you think dating sexy guys and spending time with family is going to make you evil," said Mila mockingly.
"No," Mira stammered.
"What are we doing right now then?"
Mira was silent a moment. She answered with a slight annoyance in her voice," Sometimes people need to spend time with friends is all."
Mila's eyebrows wrinkled and her radiant smile diminished. "You don't consider me family?"
"I do consider you family Mil ,but we don't see each other as often as other siblings do so our bond is more friendly."
Mila took a sip of her drink turning to face the dispenser in front of her." I consider you my BFF you know."
Mira blushed slightly as she stared into her drink. "Same."
"That's why I got you this," said Mila grinning as she reached into her brown jacket to take out a beautifully wrapped gift.
Mira smiled and took the gift, instantly trying to unwrap it. It was in the shape of a rectangle with a shiny blue wrapping and read ribbon. She opened it carefully, unwrapping the present neatly.
Mira put the wrappings to the side in a folded pile and opened the white box which was inside the lovely wrapping. She took off the cover and was in absolute awe at the sight of what was in it.
"Mil," said Mira as she pulled out a beautiful charm bracelet laced in a masterfully crafted row of rainbow gems," This must cost a fortune."
"Yeah," said Mila as she pushed her empty drink to the side," Princess gave em to me for finding a family heirloom in one of the caves on Gallinore."
"Wow," said Mira observing the millions of colors which twinkled brilliantly on the bracelet. But, Mira's smile dissipated as she looked up at her sister," But, I don't have anything to give you."
"Nah, you don't have to give me anything sis. I just like spending time with you."
"I just wish I had something to give you," said Mira with a sigh," This is worth more than me and the most I can offer is some favors."
"Well, is you really feel that bad," said Mila inching her hand towards the glass of Cassandra Sunrise which lay in front of Mira," I wouldn't want your drink to go to waste."
"Sure," said Mira with a grin as she pushed her glass towards Mila.
"Thanks," said Mila taking a swig of the foamy alcoholic beverage.
