Oh the pressure...
Actually this is the kick in the pants I needed to get back to work on this. Thanks for reading folks
Cielle shifted restlessly on the uncomfortable plasteel chair in the passenger waiting area in the spaceport. She clutched her bag nervously as she watched the stream of people passing by. They were leaving the planet. Rafaelle had finally admitted that she needed help.
It hadn't been easy. Cielle had called Theraguin and he had stopped by to see how they were doing. One look at Cielle's healing eye and split lip,he had grimly hauled Rafi into the other room to talk. Their conversation had gone on and on, voices rising and falling. Cielle tried to distract herself with a holo-vid, then a game and finally had dozed off. She had been woken by the captain gently shaking her shoulder.
“Cielle, I'm sorry that you've been hurt. Do you want me to find you another place to go?”,he offered.
Cielle had a moment of panic at that statement. She had truly grown to love her foster mother. And they were good for each other. Rafi had been doing so much better until the fighting in the streets between the Justicars and security and other Republic forces had flared up so badly. It seem to trigger more episodes,worsen the nightmares that Rafi suffered.
“No no. She needs me, I need her. We have to help her” she pleaded
“Yeah, she needs more help than she is getting Cielle. I suggested she find someone to specializes in mind healing. I know has tried gone to the Jedi before, but they doesn't seem to have helped.” Theraguin frowned in thought.” There is a place I have heard of that have some kind of people. Mystics they call them that can do some type of mind healing. Its a planet called Voss. I suggested she check it out.” Smiling at Cielle he added, “It actually eases my mind to know you will be with her.”
“Voss, okay, good, we will go.” She jumped up as if to run right out the door.
“Settle down youngling” Theraguin chuckled. “At least pack a change of clothing.” He turned to look at Rafi standing hesitantly in the doorway. “She is sticking with you girl. Take good care of her.”
Rafi swiftly moved in to give Cielle a brief hug, gratitude shining in her eyes. She softly murmured an apology in her ear. Cielle just shrugged it off wordlessly and hugged her back. Theraguin smiled and reminded them to keep in touch as he left.
Cielle stopped by Fieler Dan's place to have her pass a message on to Braedon and Renalda. Braedon had in fact been picked up by the Justicars on a curfew “violation”. Renata actually convinced a passing pair of folks to rescue her brother for her, and when he got back Fielder Dan's daughter had relocated them to a safer area. Cielle was glad they were safe though she missed her friend. But now she truly had nothing to keep her here.
So here they were, all their belongings packed into a big locker, waiting for the passenger ship, ready to move on to the next chapter of their lives.
