    ?Pem-sa, are you, preganant??

    That's where I was going with that suspicion, yeah...

    Ma-mere was very understanding ? looking back I think she was a bit too understanding, as was Father ? but I was grateful for their combined discretion and for the simple fact that neither of them asked too many questions.

    Or it could just be that they both like kids, even if it's kinda soon for grandchildren? Either way, I'm glad they're so supportive.


    Good entries. :)

    If I am pregnant, I have at least sixteen years of being responsible for another life (and male or female, that will be the life of a damned monk!)

    A promise seldom kept... or she wouldn't be in such trouble! [face_laugh] Not that there's something really laughable about her situation, but I guess she still doesn't know much about her parents and other relatives' adventures before she was born...

    Dear Tam,

    To my utter relief (and strange sense of disappointment,) I am not nor was I ever pregnant.

    That was the first thing Nico told me when he embraced us (with one arm ? I?ll explain that in a minute). He even had the nerve to scold me (very gently) about such ?foolish behavior? (even if it was just the one time) and told me that if I ever did Spice again, he?d beat me senseless!

    You could have picked my jaw up with a turbo jack! But he wouldn?t tell us anymore until we got to his office.

    Once we were all settled, (and it?s a lovely, peaceful place) I asked him how he knew and he said that he and Maeil had ?a little talk? before he (Maeil) decided that he would find life ?off world? much better. That ?little talk? seemed to have involved a bit more than harsh words, as Nico was nursing a broken arm and the remains of a black eye!


    I guess the night after we had our little ?encounter?, Maeil was going around actually bragging about how he had ?bagged? a Skywalker, and even had hoped that I had caught pregnant because he was ?going to be a part of Royalty? then! It all came to a stop when Nico and a few of his friends caught wind of it.

    They arranged a ?meeting? (and unfortunately, Healers aren?t usually armed) and at first Cap, Bale and Zee (Garm and Chalna had taken a dusting weeks ago) stood next to Maeil, ready to fight (Zee was just blasted as usual, I think Nico said she was eventually taken to a detox center near Tatooine) and they got in a few blows (Cap was responsible for Nico?s black eye) when Timo (Nico?s closest assistant) got a hold of Bale and ?suggested? he needed to rethink his life, when both Cap and Maeil just went nova ? Cap went into some kind of drug induced warrior rage (by the end of it, only a fractured skull incapacitated him enough to stop him from fighting ? he spent a couple days in the Healer?s center before going back to Iridonia with a pretty good case of the ?I have no clue what I have been doing for the last six months?.)

    When Maeil found himself pretty much alone against three Healers, he started acting like it was all some big joke anyway, but they (the Healers) knew it was all a bluff ? sure enough, he jumped on Nico (that?s when his arm got broken) but by the end of it, he (Maeil) realized that it would be prudent to join up with Garm and Chalna ? at least in spirit, and that was the last they had heard from him.

    Well, after all that (and I had a good hard cry) Luda said she had to go meet Master Fin and perhaps Nico and I could go have mid-day meal together (and she winked at me when she said this ? as if I want to get involved with any boy at this point!) .
    He took me out to a really nice (and very private) restaurant ? it?s very exclusive ? it?s like some of the hidden rooms at the Temple that are only accessible if you know the right people. You don?t have to have a lot of credits, just no holo-reporters or the like (Ma-mere and Father love it here).

    We had a lovely meal (and I was hungrier than I have been in weeks!) and talked a lot. Nico is very proud of how the Healer?s center has expanded (and he doesn?t want to admit how big a part he?s played in it, but I know.) They have even built up a new wing that is dedicated to helping people with prosthetic mechanical limbs (which is nick-named ?Shurke?s fit-it shop? after my Grey-pa!) and he asked if I would come by the Healer?s Center tomorrow night, or possibly the night after. It seems that he?s so busy all the time that he?d forgotten how nice it was to have company.

    Against my better judgment (I won?t have a lot of time anymore as Father wants me to start helping with the younger apprentices) I said yes.



    Love,

    Pem

    Super duper relieved update. :D

    Nico's very great in this healer role, and it was wonderful how he took up for Pem. Maiel's totally a jerk--then--saying he bagged a Skywalker of all things. :eek: :p

    Cute name for the prosthetic shop. :D

    That's what I meant, yes... :) (Having experianced first hand the "OMG!!!" and then the supportive, I'm trying to be objective. You did it very well. And no, it wasn't me. Family member...)

    And... wow. When did Nico get so awesome? Coolness.


    Good entry. :)

    Yes - Pem's not the only one who's been growing up!


    LOL! Yes, people change, don't they? Ahhh, but there's more!

    Can you believe it? Only 6 more entries (plus an epilogue) to go - we're in the homestretch folks - thanks for staying with us!

    Dear Tam,

    It?s been a few weeks since we came back, and as usual, things have been sailing along. Luda has asked if I would mind if she brought Kix to my seventeeth Life day party tonight (it?s going to be dinner with the whole family) and of course I said yes.

    Too bad Nico can?t make it ? he?s got a rather large workload that day (Uncle Kay is getting him ready to become a Master Healer, and eventually become the Lead Healer of the Temple facility in a few years) but he promised he would make it up to me in a few days.

    We?ve actually been seeing quite a lot of each other lately, but really Tam, we?re just friends. After his little ?run in? with Maeil, I?ve been teaching him some elementary combat, and he has been teaching me some expanded healing techniques.

    Just friends, really.

    I mean, he was such a? a bantha?s ass! He had more lovers than I?ve had hot meals, and yet.

    He hasn?t even tried to kiss me, or hold my hand for more than a second except when we meditate together, but there?s a warmth and a comfort there between us ? it?s not like anything I?ve ever felt.

    Oh dear Goddess? I think I?m in love with him.

    I can?t tell him this though, I?m afraid it will ruin what we have and the last thing I want is to do that.

    *sighs*

    Father and Auntie Leia are going to be the guests of honor at an Annual Grand Ball (Ma-mere and he first ?met? there, or so they tell me, but Gra-mere says it?s just the place where they fell in love.) and I?m going to see if I can talk uncle Kay into giving Nico the night off. I?ll need an escort, after all?

    *

    Later

    **

    When I got home, Ma-mere told me there had been a delivery for me (not surprised, it is my Lifeday after all,) but Tam, I was so? touched. I didn?t even need to ask who it was from when I saw it laying across my pillow.

    It was a single Naboo flower, taken from the Healer?s garden.

    I?ll sign this off as how I truly am,

    (In) love,

    Pem

    Happy wriggle! Nico's a sweetie and a romantic to boot! :* [face_dancing]

    The feeling of warmth and safety Pem feels with him is quite marvelous and a great sign. :D

    The ball sounds -- delicious. Great time for the first kiss in the moonlight and a slow dance or two. Squee!

    Dear Tam,

    I really wish there was a way to save pictures to you, but I?m afraid you?ll just have to rely on what I tell you for now.

    Father and Uncle Han looked as handsome as ever, although it was kind of scary seeing how much grey has encroached into Uncle Han?s hair (Father?s is too light to really see, and it just looks lighter, like salt in the great Dune Sea). Uncle Chewie?s fur was soft and silkier than ever, and but for the little bit of white around his muzzle, he looked very much the same as the first time I saw him. I was so little, and he was so huge and gentle. The children ? the twins, Ben, Anakin and Auryn ? adore him as I did, and although they were well behaved (sitting with Gra-mere and Leibé) you knew it couldn?t last long. As soon as Uncle Han and Auntie Leia, and Father and Ma-mere appeared, Auryn pointed and Anakin shouted ?Ma-MERE!?

    Well, that got the crowd laughing and I saw Ma-mere blush, and Father grin, even as Auntie Leia (who smiled, even as she elbowed Uncle Han in the ribs really hard!)

    Auntie Leia wore a lovely white dress with heavily embroidered epilets, and lovely sashes with the Crest of the Royal House of Alderaan complimented with the symbols of the New Republic in a beautiful deep blue and gold, with her incredibly long hair done up in a series of fancy plaits and ringlets. My Ma-mere, who still wears her hair short, wore a dark green satin dress with a red shimmer-silk inset (a variation on her Corellian Bloodstripe) that allowed her to actually walk, as it fills the gap where there?s a slit all the way up her very pretty leg (and heels ? my Ma-mere hates heels!) and a simple collar that left her back bare. You could almost see the tiny tattoo of the blue mynock that?s right on her rear, it was cut so low, and at first she wanted to have the dress altered to hide it, but Father said that ?it was part of who she is? and gave her that sloppy look (which makes me wonder how long that dress stayed on after they got home!) So she let it be.

    I wore a vintage dress that I picked up in the Village on Naboo. It?s so delicate, and made of shimmersilk, and looks like a floating sunrise. Like my Ma-mere?s dress, it was backless (but my dress had a metal circlet to hold up the front) but I wore a false hair of ringlets (it?s the latest fashion here on the core ? short during the day and impossibly long at night! My false hair went right down to my hips!) that I could never manage for day to day!

    Nico? he took my breath away. He showed up right on the hour, with and eternal Naboo rose (it?s a delicate crystal) for my hair. He was wearing white leather gloves, black boots, and a dark green suit with a high buttoned neck. His dark wavy hair was mostly slicked back, but for the long plait in the back. He had even used a touch of blackening to line his eyes (which I could hardly take mine away from!) When he offered me his hand for the first dance, my knees were shaking!

    At last hour, (when night becomes the next day) the wonderful Bith band began to play a really old fashion waltz. I think its Ma-mere?s and Father?s favorite tune, as they were dancing exceptionally close, (with Father?s hand occasionally straying to where Ma-mere?s tattoo is!) and once again, Nico took my hand and lead me out to the dance floor.

    I rested my head on his shoulder (and I could hear his heart pounding!) and we danced really slowly. At the end of it, we pulled away and for a second, we just looked at each other. I closed my eyes, hoping that he wasn?t just going to lead me back to the table, but very slowly, he leaned in and kissed me.

    It wasn?t just a friendly kiss, nor was it a deep kiss, but it was probably the best kiss I?ve ever had in my life. It was soft, and slow, and his tongue touched mine just ever so slightly as our lips parted.

    Then the lights came up ever so slightly (and I could feel the mix of approving and disapproving looks, but neither of us cared!) and Nico asked if he could escort me home. Father and Ma-mere w

    but then he cradled my face in his hands and kissed me again, so long and soft, that I could have just melted right there (and I think I did, with those words ?I love you? ringing in my ears!)

    And I with her... [face_love][face_love][face_love][face_love][face_love]


    (BTW, the real Nico is asking when are you coming back down here... ;))

    The waltz

    Although 'TAM' can't 'save images', I thought you'd like to hear the music from the ball - it's actually from the 'sequal' to Phantom (which I have very mixed feelings about) but I love the images the music evokes...

    Dear Tam,

    I have never felt so angry and dirty in my life! I wanted to scream and throw up and cry all at once, and after I met up with Nico, I had to go to the training room and take out my rage and aggression on the remotes.

    I wore a pretty, fairly innocent outfit to meet with Nico, and he was all solemn and dressed in his Healer?s robes when the younger apprentice showed me in and closed the door.

    ?Pem,? he said holding up a vial full of golden brown powder. ?Do you know what this is??

    I frowned and told him that of course I did, hells, everyone did! It was a vial of glitterstim. Then he held up another vial, and I got all embarrassed and a little angry. After all of his lectures about me doing Spice, here was Nico with the very same type of Spice that the ?gang? had taken months ago! I opened my mouth to tell him off, but he shook his head and started talking again.

    He said that this was a very rare and special blend of Narco-Spice that when used by Healers, was a very powerful tool, especially when dealing with people who had gone through trauma, and resisted traditional sedatives and Healing techniques. It was also used by slavers as in large doses, and if taken over time, it would cloud a persons judgment and make a person incredibly malleable, and suggestible. The he asked me if I understood.

    Oh I understood alright, I understood a lot, and I was horrified. I felt? violated and manipulated beyond words. I swore that if I ever crossed paths with Maeil again, I would kill him. Slowly. Painfully. But first, I would ram my lightsaber up where the suns never shine before ignighting it. I was shaking with rage and Goddess bless him, Nico just sat there and let me be.

    At long last, he stood up (and I was afraid he was going to try to touch me,) and he just walked around me, and opened a door to a private room in his office ? his meditation room ? then he walked back to his chair and sat down again with his hands folded on his desk.

    I tried to meditate (unsuccessfully) and excused myself at last to go work out, and Nico didn?t say a word.

    He never even tried to touch me?

    Goddess bless the man, I really do love him, Tam.

    Love,

    Pem

    It's good then on the prior tack, that her times with Nico won't be sullied by such nasty tricks!!

    Uh oh!

    On the other hand, perhaps there is hope for Nico to be redeemed. He has been very sweet and supportive for Pem.

    [:D] from a distance for Pem, there... and she doesn't need to kill the guy to make him pay for it. She can just glare at him with non-veiled threats in her eyes.


    Good entry. :) (I'd have reviewed yesterday, but... "wow" incoherently doesn't quite due the post justice. Wow...)

    Awww - yes, poor Pem... But as you can see, Nico HAS grown up to be a sweet young man...


    I think he has been! In the end, he IS a Healer after all!

    Yes - she can give him the "Skywalker Death look!!"

    OK folks, we're close to wrapping things up, so here's the final posting schedule: Two regular post left after today!

    Dec 23

    Christmas day

    A small afterwards and authors note by New Year's eve...
