I apologized profusely before checking my holoreceiver. "It's a Sith, sir."
He muttered something under his breath, but then waved for me to take it.
I took a deep breath and answered it. "Lord Kaaste, to what do I owe this honor?"
"My mission was a great success, thanks to the data you provided me with."
I bowed my head. "I'm glad you are pleased, milord."
He grinned slyly. "I was very pleased with your performance, both--"
I had to interrupt before Keeper overheard any more. "Milord, now is not the time to be discussing that." My voice was hushed, and I could feel the blood rushing to my cheeks. No doubt others could see it.
"I'd like to meet up with you again sometime." He hadn't seemed to have gotten the hint. "We could discuss it then."
I was frantic. "My lord, I am in a meeting."
His eyes widened and seemed a little embarrassed. "Oh. Well, I, uh. . ." He coughed. ". . . I will contact you later."
"Glory to the Sith," I replied.
I gave a sigh of relief when he turned off his communicator. When I looked back at Keeper, his eyebrow was raised but he did not say a word about it before continuing with the meeting.
One, I love Keeper. Two, I always wondered what would happen if nearby NPCs could listen in on your holocalls.
