    And, after a long lost Jade shows up, we have a post! *gasp*

    Enjoy everyone, and nthanks for being so patient with me

    ******

    Kyp was waiting on the Flight Deck the next morning when Zekk and Jaina, leading the Twin Suns Squadron, stepped out, fresh from their briefing. Jaina's face was an emotionless mask, the aloof figure of a Goddess among mortals. Just what she needed to be when putting such a close group of people's lives at risk. People who'd saved her lives more times to count.

    He waited in the middle of the desk until Jaina nodded to her squad. "You know the plan. To your fighters and may the Force be with you."

    They scattered, Zekk staying behind as Kyp shook his head fractionally. This was between the three of them. They waited until the sounds of the active deck were loud enough to drown out any conversations they might have and Kyp spoke first. "I'm coming with you."

    Jaina's eyes remained focused on his face, but she was shaking her head before he'd said anything. "You're too weak Durron. You'd be more of a danger than a help - much as I want you along."

    Zekk eyed Kyp carefully. "Don't count him out yet, goddess," he said unexpectedly.

    She turned her head, but her eyes never left Kyp's face. "What do you mean?"

    Zekk nodded beyond Kyp, but Jaina didn't see the move. "I get the feeling it won't just be him coming along."

    Jaina's eyes widened as she focused on the small figure walking towards her steadily. Tahiri held a helmet in each hand, her stance firm as she stopped a few feet away. Jaina could feel the Force, the despair carefully controlled, coming off her in waves. She turned to look at Kyp again. "I am not giving her the chance to kill herself."

    Kyp smiled wryly. "Funny, that's what I said to her when she asked this morning."

    "Then what is she doing here and why can she use the Force again?"

    "I can answer that one, Master Durron," Tahiri said, her voice calm as she stepped closer to stop at Kyp's side. He motioned for her to go ahead.

    Tahiri looked straight at Jaina, her eyes boring into the other woman's head until they made eye contact. Jaina, if she hadn't been as strong, would have taken a step backwards at the determination in the stormy gaze. Tahiri was coming, with or without consent.

    "Explain yourself, Tahiri."

    Tahiri smiled a faint smile and Jaina's eyes widened. That was unexpected. "I know what you and Kyp have been trying to do for me. I realize I haven't been the most avid of pupils, but I am your apprentice. Both of you. I'm Kyp's because he knows what it is to be a dark Jedi and to fall. He knows what it is to pull someone back from the brink. I'm your apprentice because Master Skywalker believes making me face my grief and accept it will make me a stronger person. A stronger Jedi. It's what losing Jacen and Ana... Anakin did to you. Losing your brothers made you face your fears."

    Tahiri paused and looked across the flight desk at the fighters preparing for launch. "This is where Anakin would want to be if he was here today. This is where I feel closest to him." She turned back to look at Jaina and smiled a real smile that was tinted with sadness. "I haven't given you a chance to help me, Jaina. Not a real one. Kyp made me face some things about myself that I have managed to hide with the Force. Not anymore. You... you can teach me in your element. But I can't learn if you won't let me try. If you won't teach me, help me, the way Anakin would want you too. Please. Let us help."

    Jaina looked back to Kyp, fighting to find some reason why she shouldn't let them come, but knowing it was futile. If she didn't, they'd follow on their own. If she did, she'd be two pilots heavy, but stronger for it. Or would they? She stretched out with the Force for Kyp's presence. It was there, as always, determined and strong, yet ultimately weakened by the prolonged suppression of Tahiri's Force Powers. Would he be a hindrance in this?

    As if reading her mind, and he probably was, Kyp chuckled. "If you let Tahiri go, there's no way I'm st

    Oh great, Jade's returned and she's sending Jaina and Zekk straight into hell :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Damn it! :mad: Methinks Kyp and Tahiri are going to have to come to their rescue, so the imp can redeem herself.

    Grrrrrrr! The question is what is worse, this massively, maddeningly evil cliffy... or not knowing how many days, weeks, months that we'll have to wait for Jade to reappear???
