    Hmmm... two opening posts.
    Excellent. I find myself liking Garm Bel Iblis even more than I did before!

    This is great fun already!

    Ok, let me just back up to the first post. When Leia says (I'm going by memory here):
    Don't you have a date with a Hutt?

    LOL! EXCELLENT! :)

    And this post:
    Leia, of course Han is going to pop into your head as your first thought. Gorgeous guys have a way of popping into women's heads all the time!

    Seriously, LadyPadme I am quite impressed, as usual, with the consistent quality of your writing. :) I hope you do find the chance to keep this updated because it already promises to be a fun read. :)

    RebelMom: Hee Hee. Yes. I do like to torture Han. It makes life worth savoring ;)

    crystalrain: :D :D :D

    Gabri_Jade: They don't react well to surprise, do they?

    Puggy: LOL! I know, I know...I like to see them alone together, too.

    Miska: I'll try to do what I can but I don't have very much written on this story. Next post coming right away, though.

    RogueSticks: Just the TITLE has you squirmy? Wow. Thanks!

    KatarnLead: Thanks! And thanks for the up.

    Sunshine: There are worse things you could be addicted to. ;)

    Kirana: Welcome! Yes, pull up a seat!

    DarthMasan: Thanks!

    Kirana_Ti: Yes...Bel Iblis can be so helpful, can't he?

    J_Girl: Thank you so much! I hope this reads up to the promise :)

    Next post right up!

    Chapter Three

    Activity in the main docking bay never completely shut down, although at 0700 Standard Time, there was considerably less than usual. Only a few maintenance workers and droids milled about between the ships and equipment. Occasionally a ship would arrive or take off at that time, although it was a rare occurrence.

    With the droids C-3PO and R2-D2 in tow, Leia and Luke entered the main docking bay five minutes before their scheduled rendezvous time. As they entered the bay, Leia spotted Han perched on the open boarding ramp of the Millennium Falcon drinking a cup of Caf. Leia?s gaze turned stony.

    ?Getting ready to leave, Captain?? Leia asked, her voice frosty.

    ?As a matter of fact, yes, your Worship,? Han replied looking up. His gaze slid behind her. ?Hey, Luke. Morning.?

    ?Morning Han,? Luke said, trying to shake off a sudden sense of foreboding. He looked around to see if there was any other activity within the docking bay, but saw no one hanging about any of the other ships. Chewbacca came out from the Falcon at this moment, and Luke and Leia both greeted him.

    Chewbacca grunted back in reply and then shook his head and re-entered the ship.

    ?Good morning, Captain Solo,? Threepio greeted. Next to him, Artoo beeped as well.

    Han nodded toward the droids, but then turned back to Luke. ?What?s got you up this early, kid??

    ?We?re meeting our escort,? Leia answered for Luke.

    ?Escort?? Han?s eyes narrowed dangerously. ?Escort to where??

    ?Oh, like you care!? Leia snapped.

    Han frowned. ?Humor me, your Highness.?

    ?We?re on our way to Zalopine,? Leia said. ?We?ve lost our last supplier of ionium fuel and Commander Bel Iblis asked me to negotiate with the Zalopini to become possible suppliers for us.?

    ?Did you just say Zalopine?? Han asked.

    ?Yes,? Leia answered with a wary look in her eye as she saw the change in expression on Han?s face. He looked as though he was suddenly very amused.

    Han stood up and pointed to the Millennium Falcon with a flourish and a bow. ?Your ship awaits, milady.?

    Leia glared at Han. ?That isn?t very funny, Han.?

    Han straightened up. ?Did you think I was trying to be funny? Actually, I think the only person who?s going to get a good laugh out of this is Bel Iblis?that old??

    ?Wait! Bel Iblis came to speak to you about escorting us to Zalopine?? Leia put down her suitcase and asked for clarification.

    ?He didn?t mention you. He just said he needed my services.?

    Leia fumed silently for a moment. ?He didn?t say anything about asking you. I thought you were on your way to Tatooine.?

    ?I agreed to postpone my departure for the Commander.?

    ?But you?re still leaving?? Leia asked.

    ?Well?if I?m gonna go all the way out to Zalopine, I might just spend a couple of days in the sun and surf and enjoy myself for once,? Han drawled. ?But, yeah, the final plan is to get the hell away from the Alliance.?

    Luke shook his head, realizing suddenly that for all of Han?s talk of wanting to leave, the Corellian was really reluctant to part ways with the Alliance.

    Leia, however, took Han?s words at face value. ?Well, in that case I guess we should be honored that you?ve agreed to be our escort,? she snapped, sarcastically.

    ?I know better than to hold my breath waiting for you to show your gratitude.?

    ?You?re insufferable! I can?t believe Bel Iblis did this to us! Getting you to take us!? She looked around the docking bay to see if any other ships might be departing at this time, but nothing looked promising.

    ?You?re welcome to wait for another transport your High and Mightiness,? Han offered.

    ?That might not be such a bad idea,? Luke agreed. The tone of Luke?s voice made Han give Luke a sharp glance.

    Leia, however, had not noticed anything amiss in Luke?s speech and shook her head angrily. ?There is no one else,? she ground out. ?We have to get going as soon as possible. We?ll have to just put up with you!?

    ?Yeah, yeah, no sacrifice is too great for the Alliance,? Han shot back.

    Well, someone's not a morning person!

    ?Yeah, yeah, no sacrifice is too great for the Alliance,? Han shot back.

    That was a great line, LP! The whole exchange between Han and Leia was lovely. All that UST... *Sigh*

    Superb work--looking forward to when you update again!

    ?Morning Han,? Luke said, trying to shake off a sudden sense of foreboding.

    *grins* I like that. Does Luke get this 'sudden sense of foreboding' just before each of Han and Leia's arguments? Or is this foreboding for something else entirely? I find it quite amusing if it's just because of Han and Leia. Most excellent H/L banter as well, my dear LP. :D

    Gabri_Jade - methinks anyone who had previously seen a H/L encounter before would have a sudden sense of foreboding... :p

    Ooooh, this is going to be a fun trip. [face_devil] ;) I find Han and Leia's reactions to the revelation of their mission together interesting. Why Leia seems to be genuinely annoyed, Han, on the other hand, is more amused by it. Do you think he delights too much in riling Leia? ;)

    Another awesome start LP, even if i am late to the party.

    Already they're sniping, this should be a very interesting story! Too bad Luke is caught in the middle of it.

    And i love the idea of this story being lodged as a protest [face_devil] :D

    Saga Han, Leia, and Luke. :)

    So, Leia left Han to carry her luggage, just like Amidala did with Anakin, hmm. [face_laugh]
