Post Five Jaina meandered her way towards her apartment on Mon Cal. Wedge had kept her in their meeting for almost two standard hours, before sending her on her way to Tycho - who needed her to fill out monthly paperwork. Checking her chrono, she realized it was too late to comm Zekk. Her boyfriend would just have to see her after the sim tomorrow. She trudged to the front door of her apartment, keyed in her door combination, and as it whooshed open she trudged inside. She tossed her datacard onto the table, and stumbled to the couch where she promptly flopped down on it. After a few minutes rest, Jaina grappled back onto her feet and walked towards her kitchen. As she made her way inside, she stopped as an extended arm handed her a glass of blue milk. ?Here, ? the smiling face of her boyfriend gave her the cup. She took it from him and took a few sips to quench her parched mouth. ?Thank you,? she said. ?How did you know I was back?? Zekk took a moment to pick Jaina up in his arms, carry her over his shoulder back into the living room, and toss her onto the couch. ?Sit,? he commanded. Jaina nodded her head sleepily. Zekk quickly brought in the glass of blue milk and set it on the table beside Jaina. Zekk went back into the kitchen and searched through Jaina?s fridge. ?What do you want for dinner, leftover nerf, or leftover Calamarian alfredo?? ?Whatever,? Jaina sighed, closing her eyes. ?Okay, then,? In a few minutes Zekk brought in two plates, each with half a nerf and some leftover pasta. He sat one plate down in front of Jaina, and then he sat down with his plate in the oversized blue chair, next to the couch. Jaina looked at him, and then back down at the food before eating. Zekk gave a half smile before taking a few bites of his food. ?Ryker commed me after you went into Wedge?s office. He said it would probably be an hour or two before you got in, ? Zekk answered her question. Remind me to give that boy a raise, Jaina thought. She took a sip of her milk. ?I?ve missed you.? ?I know,? Zekk responded. He had missed her too. He hated the fact that their schedules kept them apart so much. He was often off planet running cargo for the GFFA, and she was always being deployed on some mission with Twin Suns. The last time they had gotten together they had only had a few hours before both their comlinks beeped sending them off in different directions. ?I?ve missed you too.? ?So how long do we have before you have to go again?? Jaina asked tentatively, picking at her nerf. ?I?ve got the same three day weekend you have. I asked Rynna to cover my delivery to Bespin tomorrow.? ?Oh.? Jaina smiled as she watched Zekk slurp up the last of his pasta. ?Good, you can come with me tomorrow.? Zekk picked up his plate and took it back to the kitchen, before sliding in behind Jaina on the couch. ?What do you have to do tomorrow?? ?I have to meet Ryker and Malou-Ra for a sim. We?re testing the new batch of applicants for the open position we have. Then I get to break the news to Ryker that he will be leaving me for awhile.? ?I'm sure he?ll just be devastated,? Zekk laughed. He had met Jaina?s XO, and while he liked the younger man, he was sometimes a little bit too much like Jaina for Zekk?s comfort. One Jaina is enough; a male version is too much, he thought. ?Where is he going? Is he transferring to another squadron?? Jaina laughed, ?The only way I'm going to get rid of Ryker is if he gets his own squadron to command. When I saw Wedge earlier tonight, he said he needed a pilot, and a good one; there was some mission he needed one for. Wedge said originally one of the Rogues was going to do it, but last minute the squadron got called out for some major assignment. So he asked me for the best pilot I have, you know other than myself.? ?And that would be Ryker,? Zekk leaned in to massage Jaina?s shoulders. ?Yep,? she sighed leaning back into him, ? Which means if we don?t find a good replacement tomorrow I'm going to be two pilots short for awhile.
