references a world mission on Hutta
Ajacksa tapped a pattern on her jaw as she headed to the spaceport, reprogramming her detector to only let her know of immediate threats. The constant readout of poisons from Hutta's atmosphere was beginning to drive her nuts. She took a deep breath to test it and gagged a little as a particularly nasty wave of stench hit her. Smelled like something had died. Go figure.
She avoided meeting the gaze of the hard-eyed mercs loitering outside the spaceport. Pretend they don't exist, act like you have someplace to be going. And she did. A job. For credits. Too bad it was for a crazy woman. There was no way she was going to bring that child back, even if she did manage to defeat a desperate Korriban-trained protective father. What kind of mother would send their son to the Sith? The Sith! She'd never seen one, but the stories were more than enough. Her jaw hardened. It was a nearly a death sentence.
At least Gianna was just stupid. Thought she was doing what was best for her son. Put her leagues ahead of some mothers. Mothers who tried to poison their own children.
Jack paused in the door, looking for the contact Gianna had told her to talk to. She'd almost refused the job, but she needed the credits. She rolled her shoulders, feeling the edge of the ill-fitting chest armor digging into her side. It was better than what she'd arrived on Hutta in, but it was obvious that the last person to wear this did not have hips. She took a deep breath and grimaced as the armor didn't give. Or much of a chest.
If she played this right she could get a couple more credits, and the boy would get a chance at a fresh start with a parent who was sane and cared about him. Must be nice to have one of those left.
There is no WAY a piece of armor you pick up off some thug in Jiguuna would fit a female bt4. Not a chance in hell, lol.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?
