Hi everyone!! This is the first story I've written about my sith inquisitor.
Prompt: Alternant Perspectives/ Affection
Spoilers: Sith Inquisitor act one spoilers.
There was more grumbling in Khem’s quarters as he battled Darth Zash for supremacy in his own head. Etonya had her head under her pillow and she was trying to sleep. It had been weeks since her last ritual and Khem seemed more miserable than ever. She gave up trying to sleep and started searching the holonet for something that might cheer him up.
“Hmmm…This could be fun,” Etonya started cackling until Andronikos woke-up and threw a pillow at her. She considered using the force to shock him but he was already asleep and it wasn’t worth the wasted energy.
The rest of the night passed without incident; when everyone was awake, Etonya set course for Balmorra.
On Balmorra Etonya and Khem walked through the battlegrounds. Khem was confused, Etonya generally left him on the ship and traveled with the pirate. They wandered around for a little while longer when Etonya suddenly stopped in front of a dilapidated building.
“Little sith why do we waste our time on this world,” Khem growled at Etonya.
“We are here because there is a deployment of Republic soldiers and at least four jedi in this, for lack of a better term, building,” Etonya was practically overflowing with glee. “I shall deal with the soldiers; you my monster shall eat the jedi.”
They split up in the front hall because Khem said he could smell jedi.
Etonya lit her double-bladed lightsabre and, with a cheerful hello, proceeded to empty the room of all living inhabitants. It was great, there were limbs flying everywhere and people trying to get out of the way of the manically laughing sith lord.
The last man was mortally wounded and obviously not thinking clearly, when he said, “This was an unprovoked attack on soldiers of the Republic. Why did you come?”
“Do you really want to know?” Etonya shocked the man. “I was looking around the holonet for a way to cheer up my Dashade when I stumbled upon your operation and thought it was the perfect thing for him,” she stabbed him and looked around at the devastation she caused. She started giggling, she couldn’t stop and she knew just knew that if Khem could hear her he would find a way to say she wasn’t as good as Tulak Hord and he would mention the battlefields of Yn and Chabosh. That thought started her giggling again.
Khem Val was lumbering through the hallways following the scent of jedi. He made it to the end and found a room where there were five jedi and three padawans deep in meditation. The nearest jedi looked up and he was eaten first. The remaining jedi alerted by the screams of their companion ignited their lightsabres and attacked the hostile being.
Khem ripped through the forces of the jedi feasting with glee. It was an odd feeling; ever since the little sith awoke him back on Korriban he had to make sure she was safe, he had to follow her will, and then he saved her from the witch and now his head was not his own anymore. He had faithfully followed her and when they landed on Tatooine she abandoned him for that pirate.
The jedi were mostly gone and the witch in his head was silent for the first time in a long time. It was a good feeling, and he finished off a particularly crunchy jedi. He left in search of his sith and found her giggling in the midst of destruction. Most of the room did not survive her assault. He grumbled disapprovingly, “Little sith Tulak Hord never giggled, not even on the battlefields of Yn and Chabosh.” For reasons he could not understand she was laughing harder, then she asked, “How were the jedi? Did they taste good?”
“They were weaker than the jedi of old but they will do. One was very crunchy, it was like eating a giant beetle,” Khem grumbled this last bit with a look of mild disgust.
Etonya straightened suddenly and looked at Khem. “I hate this planet let’s get back to civilization,” she flashed a grin at Khem before running out the door and back to the spaceport.
For reason or reasons unknown Etonya has always been attracted to Khem.
Its kind of disturbing...at least she's fun to write!!
