Title: Safe Time frame: Darksaber Disclaimer: I don't own SW's or these characters! Safe She wanted to see me! It shouldn’t mean that much to me, but it does. Mara Jade actually admitted to wanting to see me! She went out of her way to see me. She could have just sent a message about the Hutts to me. Come off it. There is no reason I should be so happy over this. I saw her and Callista talking earlier. I hope Mara was jealous, just a bit… Wait. Why would Mara be jealous? Maras a friend, why do I hope she’s jealous even a little? Secretly, I had been hoping she’d come to visit for a while now. I would find myself wondering what she was up too… There is something so easy about being with her. It’s not like the strain I feel with Callista. Mara is just Mara. She says my name like it’s a curse. I let her. She thinks I’m vain and conceited. I just smile relishing the fact there is still someone who could care less about all my accomplishments and just treat me like a person not the Jedi Master. If only she knew how much her sharp tongue can clear up questions I have like nothing else. I would be scared to ever let her know. It’s so much easier to let her think that I have it all figured out. Safer. As much as I love Callista, I can’t help but wonder if I let myself could I feel this way towards Mara? Something tells me I could, and it would be so easy to let myself. That’s why I’ll never let her see how much her visit today meant. That’s why I stay the Jedi Master around her. Calm, collected, and seemingly in-human it’s probably not right, but then again if she can have her mask why can’t I? Because I know if Mara were to reject me…I’m not sure I would ever be able to live again.
