"-Raina, this is outrageous."
"Shalashaska, if you want to take on that Darktrooper yourself, be my guest. Until that is taken care of, I can't do anything." She replied solemnly.
"I'm out." The Colonel turned away from the Commander's desk, and calmly walked out the door. He needed to get Havrim out of this place before they overdosed him. Shalashaska left the Command offices en-route to the Prison Block. Troops were running every which way; it seems the Darktrooper was more of a threat than they thought.
He reached the prison holds and came upon Havrim's cell; the poor kid looked drunk.
"Havrim? Havrim, it's your uncle. You alright?"
"Why would I...talk to you? You betrayed us...me..."
"Stop this foolishness. Havrim, I'm getting you out of here."
"No Blaine, I don't trust you. Not after what you did."
"Hahahahaha..." Blaine shook his head.
"What's so funny?"
"Charades are usually humorous."
"No time to get into detail, I'm gettin' you outta here, I'll explain on the way."
"I can't here, not in front of the girl. She'll have to stay."
"Why do you always have to complicate things? It's always something."
"Let's not start this now."
Blaster fire and shouting could be heard through the base's interior, getting closer. "I'll bet that's the Sergeant, she might not be very happy to see me...we'll talk later." Blaine handed him a keycard for the cell door. "Havrim...you know where to find me."
"That I do, uncle. I'll see you around."
Shalashaska nodded and walked out the rear base entrance to a scrap-disguised starship, an ancient Dynamic-class freighter. Explosions and blaster fire filled the air in the background as he walked up the service ramp, then into the cockpit, rumbling the engines to life. He looked at a nearby screen, a very large amount of credits had been transferred to his account, and it was only half. The Hutts payed well. Very well, actually; 500 million, just like that.
"Show me that horizon..." Blaine punched the controls, blasting out of the hemisphere.
((A fitting end, don't you think?))
