Tal'ya quickly worked her hands free of their bindings. She waited to see if Shaggy had anything up his sleeve, before she would do her next move. "And now, you think that I will cower in fear at the sight of your lightsaber." Tahsh shook her head slightly. <Ahhh...perhaps Tahsh..had the same idea.> Jerill stopped waving his saber and turned it off. He glared at tahsh. "I havent forgotten or forgiven" he told her. His face was getting red. Tal'ya wondered what the long time ralvary was about...but she could find out later. "Ratso...release her" the ratlike being rushed to cut Tahsh's bonds. She stood up, rubbing her hands to restore the circulation. "You others, keep your weapons trained on her friends. If she tries anything, kill them" Jerill turned back to the table and picked up her lightsaber. "Very well" he told her "Lets see once and for all who is better" he reignited his saber and saluted her and then moved into his fighting stance. The other gunmen cleared room for them to fight. Tal'ya noticed that Shaggy had his bowcaster cocked and ready and was looking for an opening. Tal'ya knew he couldnt shoot all of the gunmen...that would be a quick death. Perhaps Shaggy was waiting until Jerill and Tahsh were in combat. Tal'ya caught ahold of Zhi-Don's attention..and gave him a knowing look. She then turned her attention back to the other two. Tahsh stood up, rubbing her hands to restore the circulation, having gotten just what she wanted. Jerill ordered his men to keep their weapons on Zhi-Don and Tal'ya. He went to the table and got her lightsaber, tossing it to her, and then ignited his own. "Very well," he told her in his fighting stance, "let's see once and for all who is better." Tahsh ignited her saber, reaching out for the Force. She knew she would need it, and was glad that however long she had been out, she had recovered from the Force Bubble. She was ready for this, though her stance was casual. She knew she would be able to spring into action at less than a moment's notice. "How about a little wager, Jonathan." Tahsh said to him, keeping a close eye on him. "I win, your men let the kids and my friends go free without a hitch." Tal'ya almost snorted. She knew, even if he agreed to it..he wouldnt keep a promise like that. Too much money involved. Someone was paying out a HUGE amount..for that many kids. Tal'ya flexed her hands, as she waited for an opening. She could have her saber in her hands quickly. She waited for an opening, keeping an eye on Shaggy. TAG: Anyone.
