Return home, a determined Jedi and a new mission

The trip back from Corellia was uneventful for the most part. Pho was curled up nex to me, a datapad in her hands for most of the trip typing steadily.. Another blog entry no doubt. When we landed I was relieved because.. well let me tell you

We were into the latter part of ou flight when she dissapeared into the fresher to get some water after another nightmare. I should have known something was wrong but I didn't catch it til it was too late. I found bottle after bottle of diffrent pain medications. it was like a kid's candy store.. Cortalizine, Diapenephrin.. just to name a few. I couldn't believe how many were in here!

Not only that I knew for a fact none of them were anything the healer's had given her.
She had taken force knew how many and just collapsed onto the bed, no warning.. Scared the living daylights out of me but once I was sure she was allright I got rid of every last bottle of pills. Then I took the ship off autopilot and steered us towards Coruscant. We were there within the hour.

She woke groggily whenever we landed.." We're here.. " I said lowly so not to startle her too much. Well that was unavoided whenever Belda came running up to greet us. That was a welcome suprise considering all the celebrations, double crossing and backstabbing that had happened. Belda told us of a sith who had attacked her and her freinds. But she had done very well in helping to catch him and getting him out of the temple.

When Phobia saw the new orders for the mission, she got that determined look that I knew not to mess with unless I had a death wish.She ran off to the council room and I took Belda back to help her pack. This was going to be a long night.. but that look.. Pho would get her way..

Which I found out the next morning she did. She had wasted most of her rest time but she had convinced the council to let them take Belda with us.Flight prep only took 10 since it was a prototype of Anakin's.I ended up piloting while Pho explained to Belda where we were going.

While steering.. I was having my own problems

I knew Girevous' reputation.. He was almost undefeated with the exception of Mace Windu.

With Belda with us, we might have some problems. I know belda needs to get out into the field more but was THIS the mission to do it on? But then I heard grandfather in my head speaking from years past. " if you don't do it now you never will. " He was right. It had to be now or never. I just hoped she could hold up to whatever we ran into.

Our duty was to take out Grievous.. and protect Belda. Though a wraith I fear haunts our steps closer than I would like. Phobia had fallen asleep. I could tell through our bond and I sent as much calming energy to her as I could. Keeping an ear open in case Belda needed anything,I settled back with Othello to read. It would be a long flight
Until later

I am glad Pho has you in her life. She couldn't have found anyone better.
She and you will always be in my thoughts. Please make sure she stops taking the pills and keeps a clear head.

Master Obi-Wan said...

Thank you for taking such good care of her. I know she thinks I dont approve but I do.
She needs to keep her whits about her though. Grievous is full of tricks.

Godfrey Zebulon said...

Thank you Adana, I will do my utter best. Her keeping a clear head is easier on some days than it is others. She won'tbe getting near the pills anytime soon,but she will not look like herself for a while.

Obi Wan, your most welcome. I know that showing emotion is not the easiest thing for a Jedi to do, but for her sake .. try.. please.. A lot of her nightmares are fuled by thoughts of" what if Obi Wan finds out about us?"

And as for Grievous, she knows this as do I. Step out side the sanctuary, you step into a warzone.

In our short time together, my grandfather's teachings have helped her immensely, and her vibrancy has helped me. We complimment each other.. the force works in mysterious ways.

Master Godfrey, I promise not to get in the way... I will be there just incase you need me. Remember, I can do more than fight. I will mind my P's and Q's around you and my Master! May the Force guide us!

Godfrey Zebulon said...

I know you can do more than fight Belda, but I do not want to see you get hurt ,that is why I worry.Thank you none the less.

Phobia said...

At leasy maybe once this is over things will settle, for the better I hope.

Master Obi-Wan said...

Godfrey, I will speak with her upon your safe return. Consider that one cannot show what one never truly learned to do. I shall do my best.
