for Niselle and Nalenne in the sister switch. 200 words. Spoilers for the Warrior and Inquisitor Dromund Kaas quests.
Nalenne sprinted through the twisting corridors of the Dark Temple, almost tripping in her headlong rush. “Nis!” She reached a landing, looked uncertainly up and down, plunged into the murk of the lower stair. “Niselle!” she howled.
A colder voice filled the stairwell. “Lenny, shut up!”
“You have got to see this!” bellowed Nalenne.
“I’m busy!” shrieked Niselle.
A couple of hoarse masculine yells sounded; then a lightsaber’s zipping motion, then nothing.
Nalenne stopped at the bottom of the stairs. “Nis?” Her voice rang down the two-way corridor in a decidedly unsettling way. “I’m serious, this is fantastic.”
“I got this ancient artifact that belonged to Khem’s ex–”
“Shut up! When I fix this Ravager, the first person I’m using it on is you.”
“And I found an old ancestor of ours! He’s all ghostly and everything!”
More lightsaber noises.
Nalenne gave up on pinpointing the source of the din. “He’s named Lord Kallig! He’s a bit hung up on the glory days–”
“Nalenne! Would you shut! Up! For five! Seconds!”
“Fine,” Nalenne yelled back. “But if he’s granting ultimate power I’m keeping it all.” She stomped back up the stairs, ready to claim her artifact and go home. If the thing was followed by betrayal like Kallig said, maybe Zash would let Nalenne gift it at Life Day.
In prime universe Niselle would never share this sort of thing with Nalenne. But Nalenne likes sharing with her sister...with a certain level of inevitable betrayal between the two.
