"What's wrong, little bird? You look nervous." Pierce took another swig of his Tarisian ale, smiling at the glare from Vette.
"You're never gonna let me live down that bit of history between Ad and me, are you?"
"Nope. So what are you nervous about?"
"Nothing." She continued to fidget worriedly and specifically not look in the direction of Adwynyth's quarters. It was no secret that she and Quinn had been bumping uglies for a while now, but this was going to get uglier than that if Vette was right.
"You sure everything's okay? I'm sure Pierce and I could cheer you up." Jaesa's voice took on a very slight lascivious tone, and the big man smiled his trademark wolfish grin. They were an item, and had made no secret that they'd be open for something a bit more...well...open if Vette wanted to join in.
"No thanks. You guys are cute together, but...ew. Threesome." She shivered. "My lekku don't twist that way. So, tell me again why you call your own boyfriend 'Pierce'?" Adwynyth's raised voice came next and confirmed the Twi'lek's worst fears.
"YOU SLEPT WITH WHO?!"
The door flew off its hinges and put a crater in the opposite wall just as Adwynyth, completely naked but carrying one of her lightsabers, emerged through the smoke-filled doorway. "VETTE!" The Twi'lek shot out of her chair, up over the back of the couch, and scampered for the only place she felt safe: the small starboard-side compartment she usually called home. The peeved Sith Lord followed her in and slammed the door.
Nothing was heard from within. Quinn emerged from his lover's -- and commander's -- quarters looking a bit worried, and more than a bit naked himself. "Lieutenant? What--"
"In Vette's room...I dunno what's happening."
Pierce was severely conflicted himself. He would do anything for the little thief, but there was no way he would take on the one he affectionately called "milord" either. Jaesa looked just as frozen-in-place as he did. There was no banging, no explosions, no blaster fire, nor the sound of a lightsaber cutting thru anything. Just deadly silence. "A force choke couldn't last this long."
Quinn looked miserable, as if this was his fault. Judging from what was yelled, it very well might be.
Meanwhile, inside Vette's makeshift quarters, she and Adwynyth were sitting on the floor, dying of laughter and straining to contain the sound of it within the room. "You owe me fifty," said the Sith.
"What?! But he didn't..."
"The bet was for 'sleeping with'. I said nothing about sex."
"But I thought...but you said... Ah,
." She grabbed a fifty-cred stick out of her pocket and handed it to Adwynyth.
Outside, Pierce and Jaesa had started a mild argument. "C'mon, fifty."
"Absolutely not. There was no sex."
"All I said was 'sleep with', love. You're the one that assumed the rest."
She looked to Quinn for confirmation. "Technically, we were sleeping in the same bed."
Jaesa pulled a fifty-cred stick from her robes. "Oh,
!" Pierce's face fell.
"And I'll take that, Lieutenant," said the formal Imperial. "I told you she'd been associating with Vette too much lately, and would eventually pick up that kind of language."
"And I'll take it, Quinnie-poo," purred the quite undamaged Twi'lek, emerging from her room. "I told you Pierce wouldn't notice you naked if something big happened." Pierce looked at the captain anew, then wished he hadn't.
"So, ours wasn't the only bet?" Adwynyth had wrapped a towel around herself. "Well then...I guess I'd best wake up 2V so he can put the door back on its hinges. Good acting, though, am I right?"
"Absolutely, master...so much so that couldn't pull off that little rampage without damaging the ship." Jaesa made 'gimme' motions at the elder Sith. "I believe it was fifty?"
Having no place else to put the credstick she'd received from Vette, Adwynyth turned it over with a sigh. "So, did
come out of this ahead?"
Quinn slid quickly over to Adwynyth and whispered something in her ear. "Oh, you're right. We did...we get to use Vette's room until ours is fixed!" She grabbed Quinn and locked them both in Vette's room before the Twi'lek could react.
"No! Oh stars, it took weeks to get that out last time..."
"So," Jaesa purred, "how did you get Quinn to sleep with you? Nice performance, by the way."
"Thanks! I drugged him." Vette smiled smugly.
2VR8 came around the corner and saw the mess the Sith Lord had created. "Oh,
Credsticks changed hands again.
Hopefully, I'm using my borrowed Huttese correctly.
Been so long, I don't remember who I'm borrowing it from, but thanks just the same.
Horrendously bad fan fiction:
