I know its been a while. My Brain was broken but I have been reading and loving what has been written. I want to acknowledge everyone individually but that would be a project in itself right now
But keep up the writing everyone
So without any further babbling.
Night of the Living Prompt - Solitude / Guilty Pleasures some small Consular spoilers
The cacophony of voices on her ship were beginning to grate on her nerves. Minalde knew how important this alliance was but soothing the different personalities and addressing the petty concerns, which had been particularly trying today had used up all the nice she had to spare today.
She went to Zenith and let him know she was going to her room and was not to be disturbed under any circumstance. He seemed to understand and took up a post in the corner of the main conference room to keep an eye on the “guests”
Slipping into her room, she dug out an old robe, ratty material but soft and warm, and a vid that was tucked in with it. Her door chimed. She was sure it was her ship droid with the cup of spiced tea and cookies she requested.
“Come in” she called. Turning she saw Felix with her snack and a shy smile on his face.
“Is this a private party? Or can I join you?”
She sighed. “I just needed some downtime. I am beyond being polite to anyone anymore today”
“I'm tough. I can take it. If you need someone to grip to, you have my ear.”
“Thanks for the offer. I already unloaded a bit on Zenith. He really seemed to understand. He is keeping an eye on the crowd, I know he will keep them in line.”
He set two cups of tea and a small plate of cookies on the table next to the bed. He politely sat in the chair next to the table.
Minalde slipped into the refresher, changed her clothes, threw some water on her face and then looked at her reflection. Did she want him to go or stay? She sensed he was falling in love with her and she didn't know what to make of it.
Heck, it didn’t matter, she was going to get into that bed and enjoy her self, relax and have a little downtime. Opening the door she ran across the room and jumped into the bed, then turned down the lights.
“You can stay if you like, but I want to indulge myself without any interruptions”
She leaned back on her pillows as the vid came to life. A lilting song filled the room. Minalde smiled at the look of astonishment on Felix's face.
“Its a children's vid I have always loved. A tale of two sisters, who meet wondrous forest spirits after moving out into the country. Its simple, its warm and it always makes me happy”
He nodded and a glimmer of an idea formed in his mind. He leaned back to enjoy the vid and learn more about this fascinating woman he had joined with.
In another ship in the far part of the galaxy, a vid flared to life within a black room. The same lilting song filled this dark and sterile environment. The light cast by the vid reflected off the face of a darkhaired man. Randall didn't know what prompted him to watch this vid right now, but the opening strains of the music caused him to relax muscles that he didn't even realized were still tensed for battle.
It brought back memories of his Academy days on Tython, when Min first introduced him to her guilty pleasure, her love for certain children's shows that she shared with him. He smiled for the first time in months.
