19 BBY - Farewell (2)
The rain drummed on the makeshift shelter, in the ditch outsidere City walls. The nly illumination in the tent was from the small holografic figure in the middle of the holoboard.
"how is the defence of Illum going?"
"we haven't had an attack in a few weeks so Illum is still under republic rule"
She smiled. His clothes was damp and muddy and his pulled back hairstyle was loose and sloppy, he looked like some one who just wanted this war to be over so that he could return to corucant and get in a hot tub. She blushed, she shouldn't have thought that. The blushed wasn't lost on him even with the blue tint.
"I miss you" he admitted with a low mumble. Her smiled broadend as she looked down kind of shy before she looked back up catching his eye.
"I miss you too" she said all most with a whisper, afraid that her former master was to hear her.
Track cleared his throat and straighten up.
"Master Ichys says that she can feel the war is drawing to an end, but something else is brewing underneath the surface, something dark..."
Tianra smiled, she wasn't offended by the quick change of subject, she knew he didn't mean anything by it.
"Master Kian said the same thing, well not as doom and gloomy as Ichys but along the same lines"
"I hope this war is over soon, we need peace. We have become more like warriors than peace keepers, Erisa would benefit from peacetime."
"Look at you all responsible, you should have taken a Padawan when the order offered you, it sound like you are taking really good care of Ichys's" she teased.
"Perhaps I should, but I would much rather have one when we're are done with all this fighting, I am sick of it and sick of losing my brothers here and around the galaxy and most of all I'm sick of being away from you!" He punched an angry hole in the air with his armored hand.
"I know" she said in a low tone.
"But it will be over soon and then we will see each other again"
"Sorry it's just really hard"
"Sitting in a wet trench for months can but anyone out of balance Track, have you talked to Ichys about it?"
"No I haven't, but I think I will... or Beast" He smiled at the though of the veteran, he had recently been promoted to senior commander and he was still climbing the latter, he was a good soldier and a good friend.
"You do that I got to go Track, we've got a scout back and I have to go to the debriefing."
"Okay... Tia wait!"
"Promise me that when the war is over we will, go and have a drink"
"I will, we will eat at the Lucas Dinner and have a drink"
As the blue light flickered out he had an odd sensation that they wouldn't see each other for a very long time.
