She?d made this particular trek multiple times in the last few weeks, the dense humidity forcing her to find some respite from the heat before she went completely delirious. However, despite her multiple attempts at making a reasonably walk-able pathway, she?d awoken everyday to find that her trail had disappeared in the prolific undergrowth of the verdant jungle. I'd never thought of that before, but I guess with Zonama Sekot's unbelievably rapid growth that would happen Awesome. She?d cut through the last of the underbrush and before her the jungle opened suddenly to a wide ravine. Above her, the canopy thinned out, allowing unfiltered sunlight to stream through the gaps in the foliage, as well as affording glimpses of the bright azure sky beyond. And beyond that, space. A grin tugged at the corners of her lips, and Tahiri began her careful descent down the side of the ravine. Below, snaking through the jungle after cascading over a rocky precipice, was a river, deep and wide and deliciously cool. Tahiri assumed the river flowed down from the polar region father north, considering the brisk chill of the crystal clear water. It was short work to reach the bottom of the ravine, and she reveled in the coolness of the air and the relief the fine mist gave to her flushed skin. Eager to completely immerse herself in the cool water, she stripped off her minimal clothing, and got a running start before jumping into the pool at the base of the waterfall. Her body plunged into the refreshing water, air bubbles rushing past her face as they rose to the surface. She opened her eyes underwater and propelled herself forward, shooting through the water with the ease of an aquatic creature. Absolutely beautiful descriptions Makes it very easy to visualize the jungle. The lopsided grin, the twinkle in his blue eyes, the lean toned shoulders, it was all there... ?I don't!? she exclaimed, turning away and making for shore again. A few strong stokes brought her there and she pulled herself out of the water and stared down at the young man still in the water. ?Don?t ever presume to know what I might like! Anakin is dead, okay? And no matter how much I may want to see him again, your tricks aren?t helping me one kriffing bit!? And suddenly the Anakin look-alike was gone, and Nen Yim was in his place, looking up at Tahiri with wide eyes. ?I am sorry, Tahiri Veila,? the planet?s consciousness apologized. ?I did not mean to cause you distress.? I figured it was Sekot, but it's still a nice twist. I've always wondered what Tahiri's relationship with the planet was in the years she lived there after the Vong War. It never gets brought up, unfortunately. ?You are so certain of this,? Sekot replied evenly, gazing calmly at her. When Tahiri didn?t reply, she continued, her head tendrils twisting in a show of concern. ?You have been... disturbed of late, Tahiri Veila. I have felt it in the Force. I wish to know what troubles you in the night when everything else is at rest...? Perhaps Tahiri is having the same nightmares as Jaina? Perhaps they both have to do with Anakin Solo Awesome post, Celste I'm so glad Tahiri's going to be in this story, and from the looks of it, she'll be a big part too Your descriptions were perfect. I could really picture Sekot's jungle. And I loved how you had Sekot show up in Anakin Solo's form, even if that was totally mean It was a nice trick. I can't wait to find out what's haunting Tahiri. If her dreams are connected to Jaina's, I'm liking my Yuuzhan Vong theory better all the time. Tahiri is living with the Vong on Sekot, I'm assuming Anyway, great job Post more soon!
