Deadly Sins: Guilt
(though in this case, not really deadly)
Miriah and Corso, spoilers for smuggler class quest ch 1, short short
Corso paced around the bar area of the Stardancer, speaking in a low voice, clearly agitated. “I really didn’t mean to, honest. I..she…there were times…ah, hell, who’m I kidding. I knew you weren’t there, and I took the opportunity in front of me.” He sighed, rubbing the back of his neck. “I’m so sorry. I never meant it to go so far.” He sat heavily, dropping his head in his hands. “I don’t know, things have moved so fast lately. Sometimes I can’t even tell where I am, much less where you were. Sometimes, you just have to have….more.” He stood and began to pace again, wishing he had his armor on but knowing this had to play out now, not later. “It was wrong, I know it. But I have to be honest, Torchy, there were times in the past couple months that Boomer was just the right one, you know? Can you forgive me?” He lovingly touched his newly-returned blaster. “You’ll always be my favorite, you know.”
Risha rolled her eyes at Miriah, sitting out in the holo area. “Void help us if he ever gets an errant thought about another woman. We’ll have to put him down, his guilt will be unbearable.” Miriah nodded, and knew there could be worse things.
Love is the strongest magic of them all.
