Chapter 9: Answers Lead to TragediesCH.9
Devin stood, staring, and slowly processed what Xero had just said, his mind numb with confusion. Xero shuffled nervously, her cheeks bright red in embarrassment.
"Please say something ."Devin stepped forward, hugging her tightly and placing one hand on the back of her head, holding her close. He smiled happily
"I've waited a long time for someone to say that ."She nodded, already feeling the dread creeping into her chest. "I love you too." Xero blushed deeply, hesitantly wrapping her arms around his torso. She almost gasped, the screams silencing completely. She smiled, hugging him tightly with her ear pressed to his chest lightly. He chuckled.
"What brought on the change?"
"Yoda had a little bit of a tirade about how ignorant I was and how I should work harder to understand your feelings and guess what. We're wiser now and we're searching for that blasted helmet. It looks like he got his wish." Devin laughed, Xero hiding her face in his chest. She stood silen
Chapter 8: One Confession To Save Two MIndsCH.8
Once they had returned to the ship, Devin reviewed what everyone had seen on their separate searches. He was unsurprised at the lack of yield each search party had, although the Mandolorian was less than pleased about the new recruit and the lack of information the searches had yielded and was prone to cursing very loudly when someone relayed what they had seen. Devin dismissed the crew an hour after they had taken off, the Mandolorian walking dangerously close to Xero as she passed, attempting to bump into her. Xero swerved out of the way without even looking at the warrior, a string of curse words following when the Mandolorian walked straight into the wall behind Xero.
Devin began searching for an image of the helmet he had seen in his vision, pulling up every holo-image from a trooper helmet to Mandolorian armor. He sighed and began scrolling through each image slowly; shaking his head each time it didn't match up with what he had seen. Xero watched him quietly before walking
Chapter 7: Dagobah and Questions with No AnswersCH.7
Xero lay in the dark for almost an hour before she sat up and left the room. She turned to the right and nearly ran headlong into Devin, stopping short of his chest. She stepped back, dropping her hand from the hilt of her lightsaber. Devin smiled apologetically.
"Sorry, I didn't expect you to be awake for another hour or so."
"I wasn't as tired as it seemed, I'm not much of a napping person."Devin chuckled
"Fair enough. You were going the right direction for lightsabers, follow me."He led her back the way he came, opening a thick steel door and switching on the lights to reveal row upon row of lightsabers in every possible size and variation,. Xero looked around, amazed, at the extensive collection before her. Devin smiled, turning to face her.
"I also use this spot to hold my collection of lightsabers." Xero nodded, catching sight of several that she recognized." I've got spare parts and crystals as well." She unclipped her saber from her belt
"Repairing mine might take some tim
Chapter 6: Insanity is SubjectiveCH.6
Xero took the man's hand and shook lightly, realizing how cold her hands must be compared to his. He smiled his skin a healthier tan than she had ever been and hoped to ever be. His hair was a light, sandy brown and his eyes kind, something she hadn't seen in well, an extremely long time. He was taller by almost six inches and wore darker clothes than a Jedi would permit, but didn't seem like a Sith either. She saw another saber on his belt, along with the other in his hand that had a curved hilt and green blade, emerald green and strong.
"We'd best hurry; a storm might start if we stay here for too long." She nodded and adjusted her pack, her shoulder screaming in protest as the weight settled on her injured side.
"That would be best which way is your ship?"
"To the west of here, about a two hour walk, I'll lead the way."He led her back through the halls, walking quickly. Xero kept up, limping as they began travelling through the snow. She bent down and picked up a hand
Chapter 5:Lost and FoundCH.5
Devin returned to his ship, taking off his cloak and hanging it in his quarters before going to the cockpit, nodding to his Assassin-pilot droid GR-18. He sat; setting the coordinates and taking off to Yavin IV. His two pilots started up the lightspeed and sat back, the thinner one speaking first.
"Ever wondered whether he's got a wife or something?" the second frowned, confused.
"Who?" The younger pilot jerked his head towards Devin, the elder chuckling."I doubt he does. He's been runnin' around space for as long as I've been with him and I've never seen him with a girl. Ever."
"Do you think he's even got feelings? I mean, he's always been running around and everything but what if he picks up someone he ends up ..you know "
"Then we'll have to deal with him having something we don't, wont we?"
"And if he picks up a nice Twi'lek?"The elder chuckled
"It'll just be eye candy for us, you think he'd share? Would you share with someone if you picked up a nice
