Two hours and a string of correlian spiced whiskeys later, her latest quarry came in. A big male Klatooinian sat in front of a young brunette human woman in an adjacent booth and put a brown bag on the table. Tahiri listened in on their conversation. “Gahk.” The women started the conversation. “It’s all there, Lees. Now, tell me where she is!” Lees grabbed the brown bag and emptied its content. Various scripts fell out until the entire table was covered in credits. The woman started counting them individually, while Gahk and various other patrons of the cantina looked on, incredulous. “I can assure you it’s all there.” Gahk said. Lees stopped counting, put up her right index finger for a moment, and started counting again. After what felt like forever, Lees said, “541 duggats, 1 million creds, 6 aurodiums, and 10 thousand wupiupi. Lees stopped counting, and said, you are short 1 duggat.” Gahk muttered and put his hand in his pocket and dropped another coin on the table. Lees accepted the script and said to the Klatooinian, “Your daughter is being held in a compound, address 171 Korossian Road, 192 district. Now, if you’ll excuse me.” the brunette stood up. Tahiri also stood up. Lees Cazedio, Gahk, you are coming with me!” Lees promptly put her hands into a pocket on her red business suit, when they reappeared there was a slug thrower in them. After a deafening sound, Gahk the Klatooinian’s head was on the table, his mouth in an o shape, as if trying to eat a few galactic credits. His body didn’t move. Lees ran. Tahiri didn’t believe Lees Cazedio, embezzler, kidnapper, and assassin, would actually kidnap her own partner’s kid, and end up killing him. She held out her hand, there was a grunt outside the cantina. When Tahiri walked out of the cantina on her bare feet, she found Lees unconscious in the sand, a red round shape in the center of her forehead. A steel pipe was lying on the ground. Tahiri kicked the women on her side, breaking a couple of ribs. Lees screamed before passing out again. Inside the Cantina, Gahk’s body was still frozen on the table in his booth. All of the creds were gone though, and the patrons pretended to not know where they went, and Tahiri pretended to believe them. Sighing, she used the Force to lift the heavy Klatooinian outside, and laid the body beside the living human. “I’m here to collect on Lees Cazedio and Gahk’s bounty.” Tahiri told the twilek behind the counter. “5000 galactic credit. The twilek pushed a few buttons on his terminal, and Tahiri saw the same amount on her handheld. “The bounty was 15000!” “5000 for the human. 10000 for the Klatooinian. He’s dead. 5000 only.” “Mhhh” Grunted Lees, standing behind Tahiri, bound, her mouth frozen shut by the Force. “The bounty said dead or alive, so 15000.” Tahiri said. “Read the fine print.” Dead or alive in the case of this bounty actually have some conditions. Paragraph 14 dash 8. subsentence 9 “in the event of death, body of Gahk must not have any exterior wound.” the twilek pointed to the corpse, “there is a big hole where his throat is supposed ta--” The twilek’s throat contracted, and Tahiri had to stop herself. The Dark Side again, easily they flow... Tahiri breathed, calm. More grunts, and the former Jedi didn’t know if it was her or the bound woman behind her. “Here you go,” Tahiri sighed, handing over the woman. Lees gasped for breath, then screamed, “NO! Please don’t! You don’t understand!. NO!” The twilek pushed a few more buttons and two B2 super battle droids came out of doors, each holding one of Lees’ hands. “Nice doing business with you.” The Twilek said, “Here, I had no choice regarding the dead Klatooine, but here is another opportunity for you.” A new bounty came up in Tahiri Veila’s handheld. “It just came in.” Seven Million Trugut. Wanted Dead. Ben Skywalker Jedi Considered Dangerous. Proof Of Death needed. Please send body to First Order 545knights4545ofzzjdfRenlkdjf Good Luck. Tahiri looked her handheld for sometime. “Just a second ma’am.” The twilek said to Tahiri. “I just got another one, I might as well give the info to you now. Let’s see. Ah yes.” He pushed a few more buttons. Tahiri’s handheld emitted loud sounds, indicating multiple attempts at connection. The twilek continued to mumble to himself “I believe... yes. NOW!” A protection field formed itself between Tahiri and the twilek. five more B2 droids came out of doors, each holding either a correlian blaster or a slug thrower, and all of them pointed toward Tahiri. The two droids holding Lees let her go, and started toward Tahiri instead, their bare hands held outward, the center of which lit up red. Tahiri unhooked her lightsaber from her belt and activated it. Just as she did so, something else rolled into the room. An Old Republic era droideka activated its shield and its blaster started flashing, in seconds it was all Tahiri could do to deflect its attack. I’m going to regret this. Thought Tahiri. She let anger and fear flow through herself and a B2 droid, closeset to Lees exploded. The slug thrower it held landed neatly in Lees hand. Lees started shooting. Two minutes after the initial attack, only one B2 droid remained, however, the droideka was still active, rolling all over the place, attacking. Lees moaned on the floor, bleeding from a hole where Tahiri kicked her before. Tahiri, still using her anger, started to choke the twilek. Even as the former Jedi felt the last breath leaving the twilek, The droideka continued to blast. One of its blast went through Tahiri’s defenses.
