    Arda was uncertain if she could ever really call Corellia home again. It was where she had settled with her parents after the Empire attacked her world and uprooted her entire life, killing those she loved and destroying what used to be her family. Nothing was ever the same since then and she had to learn how to navigate a new hostile environment; she was quickly labelled as deviant by the Imperium, her art never going unnoticed and her dissent attitudes would have eventually sent her to the labor camps. She feared her fate if she were ever sent to the camps. Regardless, it was here where she had met Cas, and here where she had met Aurora which had propelled her onto a path she never thought was an option for her.

    Of course those people had hurt her dearly and now where both gone. There was one other, Gil, who she recently met up with on Nar Shaddaa; she found familiarity in his presence and made note not to go too long without causing trouble again.

    However, there was something about his new ties that didn't sit well with Arda; the name Blackwell was familiar, and though she wanted to pass it off as coincidence, she could not and did some digging, pulling up a face that rekindled fear and loathing that she thought she had gotten past. She wondered how much he knew about this woman and a chilling thought sat in the back of her mind that he might have been a spy for the Empire; it would have explained why he gotten himself involved with a Sith girlfriend. Arda had thought though she should have cancelled their meeting, but decided against it. She saw him as a friend, someone she cared for and she needed to clarify answers.

    So, Arda waited for him to arrive, a building he would have recognized from their first adventure together where they managed to get some new IDs to get off world. He wouldn't have an issue getting inside.

    Gil smirked when he saw the message from Arda. Some time had passed since he had left seen the Jedi. He didn't understand what exactly a Jedi was, but he knew she was involved in some resistance against the Empire.

    He arrived at the familiar building smiling as he arrived. It was the warehouse where their first adventure had come to an end. All those years ago the building had been occupied by a mid-level criminal who helped smuggle people off world.

    He approached the door, holding the small wrapped box he had brought with him. The building was long abandoned. His paranoia was tweaked a bit as the large door creaked open. "Arda?" He called out looking into the room, hand on his blaster as he scanned.

    He spotted the woman quickly enough. "Decided not to use the sewer entrance this time I hope." He said stepping into the warehouse. He tossed her the box. "Thought I should you how to properly deliver a package." He joked. The box contained some book he had picked up at some dealer. It was some ancient Jedi history. It seemed like something she would like.

    "You aren't planning on killing me, are you?" He asked only partly joking.

    He was on time and she was filled with mix feelings as he entered the room, commenting about the sewers that brought a wide grin to the woman. He was carrying with him a small package that he tossed to her and Arda caught it easily; it was hard to keep a straight face in his presence. Though he must of instictively felt the unease within her, or she was doing a terrible time of hiding it. He jokingly asked if she were going to kill him and Arda shook her head, "No, Gil, I..."

    The girl sighed and shrugged, uncertain on how to explain the thoughts that flew in her mind, "I was more expecting you to kill me." she told him with a heavy sigh, looking down at the package. There wouldn't be any jest in her tone as she squeezed the box slightly. "I thought Blackwell sounded familiar, I thought it was a coincidence, but its not, she's a Sith, Gil, your boss, she's a Sith, and she's the Sith that took me to the Emperor."

    She looked back at him, "You said your partner was a sith back at the Lusty Lekku, and now you're with another one or the same one? Are you a Sith, Gil?" she asked, her eyes watering up as she tried to hold back tears. She wasn't sure how she could have not figured out this for as long as it had been sitting under her nose. If it were true, then she really was uncertain about her ability to sense deception, to be the Jedi Master everyone saw her to be.

    He didn't move closer, finally seeing how tense she was. His instinct was to reach for his blaster. The hairs raised on the back of his neck as he felt like he was the one in danger. He fought the urge and kept his hands visible.

    A confused look came over his face. He didn't understand what was happening. "I would never..." he said trailing off. He meant it to. Arda had saved his life in this very spot all those years ago.

    He stood perfectly still as she explained what ate at her, her eyes watering. He still wore a confused expression. "I..I..." he said searching for words he had no idea he would have to find today. "I am not a Sith. I hate all that magic stuff. I have seen it ruin people I love..." he said not sure how to explain his situation.

    He knew what Tasha had been, she had only told him recently but he still only knew just the surface of her past life. They hadn't gotten into details, to be honest, Gil didn't want to know the details. "I had no idea..." he said. He didn't know she had been captured. Tasha told me what she was in the past.." he said before quickly adding "but she isn't that anymore!" he said in her defense before quietly admitting "..that's what she told me." he said. They barely saw one another. He had no idea what she did outside of her work with the company.

    "I am telling you the truth." he said taking a tentative step forward before stopping. He wasn't hiding anything from her but had no idea how to prove that to her. He wasn't sure he would believe him in her situation.

    She watched his face, his eyes, his hands as she tried to get a read on his response, but everything told her this was as much as a shock for him as it had been for her. Her senses reached out to him, looking for signs of deception as he tried to defend her; she was uncertain if people could change, to leave it in the past as Tasha had told Gil. She had thought that Castor had left his past behind, but there were things, habits that rose in which spoke otherwise, but Arda knew she couldn't compare, it was not a fair judgement. There was something though that told Arda he indeed was telling the truth.

    He took a step closer, testing the waters to see if she would let him approach; Arda didn't move and her shoulders dropped as she relaxed some, "I'm sorry," she apologized, wiping the tears that managed to escape and turned her head slightly to not look at Gil, "I believe you, its just, things have been relentless in their demands..." she tried to find the right words, "And when I found out about this, I thought the worse, I probably shouldn't have..." The Jedi sighed, "But I believe you, you've always been honest despite the worlds we grew up in." She turned the package in her hands, studying it for a moment before opening it carefully.

    The book was old, but valuable to the Order and Arda's smile returned and more tears, "Sorry, now I feel like a fool." she exhaled gently, her breath stuttering some, trying to avoid getting worked up again.

    It hurt him to see her in pain. He knew little about her life other than the fact she was a Jedi, and he really didn't even know what that meant. He knew she was different than Cait, different than even Tasha. Though they all seemed to use the same magic.

    "Anything I can help with?" He asked after a moment as he moved closer. She seemed far too stubborn to accept his help, but he wanted to. From their brief time together, she felt like a genuinely good person to him. So much of what he did was done with selfish motives, it was all about bettering the company or gaining something but this was different than all of that.

    He leaned against some crates as he slid down, sitting on the dirty floor looking up at the Jedi woman. "Cait told me she was done with all that too, just before…." He cut himself off, hand subconsciously moving to the scar on his stomach. He still carried the consequences of that day, his painful back a constant reminder of his failure to save her. "There are some days I don't know…" he admitted. "Maybe I'm just stupid enough to fall for the same thing twice…" he said looking away from her.

    He looked back as she studied the book. "Do you like it? I tried to read it, but I fell asleep pretty quick. I assume you Jedi don't do much light reading…" he said the hints a smile returning.

    He offered to help her and Arda gave him a shrug, uncertain of what he could do specifically; she sighed, watching Gil slide down the floor and the woman joined him, sitting down beside him. He spoke about Cait and she watched as he stopped and laid his hand on his belly, expressing doubts he holds about his own judgement and Arda listened but didn't say anything until he asked about the book.

    "This is amazing, I am surprised how much still exists on the Jedi." she told him, "Its a great de-stressor, helps me sleep too." she winked at Gil, she had tried reading some of the remaining Jedi texts and promptly found the cure to any insomnia. Nothing had been more embarrassing that being awakened by some solider requesting for her help from over an hour prior.

    "You didn't know," she finally said with a heavy sigh, thinking about how she didn't know that her Master would leave her so Tasha could take her, then again, she thought it was the end at that point, "I wouldn't have been in such a situation either if those who I thought cared for me didn't hurt me also." she said feeling herself tense, but she pulled on the Force, calming herself and Gil.

    "We're an odd mess, aren't we?" she grinned, "You wanna cause a mess for some others?" she asked him with her coy smile.
