    Well, this just caught on with me!

    KnightMara, are you in Florida too? I heard it flooded. Sounds like a wild time to me. =)

    Yes, I am in South Florida. . .and it's raining again, with flash flood warnings to boot!

    Thanks for all your comments, guys. I haven't had a chance to write any more of this since Wednesday because I walked into my flooded (read "six inches of mud on the floors and yet the students still had to report") school on Thursday, the dampness triggered an asthma attack, and I've been struggling to keep my breathing under control ever since. But with the rain continuing to pour from the sky, there's little else to do but write. So expect more this weekend. :)

    Here's the next post:


    "Don't we have anything to eat on this bucket of bolts?" Han was angrily and noisily rummaging around in the galley for something edible besides ration bars, so he barely heard Chewie's reply.

    "I threw it in the garbage," the smuggler growled back to his first mate's suggestion that he eat the food he'd picked up on Ryall. "It was starting to smell funny, and--let's face it. The pudding was BLUE!"

    The Wookie started to laugh at Han's predicament and his obvious chagrin, and Han, in return, threw his darkest glare back at him. Frustrated, hungry, and undeniably cranky, he finally snatched a ration bar out of the storage unit and unwillingly began to eat it.

    "These things have the taste and consistency of dried mud, you know that?" he bellowed.

    In response, Chewie playfully smacked Han across the back of the head and reprimanded him on several points.

    Han countered, "I am not cranky, and I am not going to wake the kid up! Believe me, I wouldn't want to! The past four hours have been quiet and peaceful."

    Chewie laughed sarcastically.

    "Look, pal, while you were napping here in the Falcon, I was dodging bounty hunters! I'm now hungry and tired, so allow me the minor luxury of venting on my own ship, will ya'?" To punctuate his words, he took a violent bite out of his ration bar, struggling not to grimace at its awfulness as he stormed away toward the cockpit.

    Falling into the pilot's seat, he blew out all his frustrations in a loud huff. As he did so, a slow satisfied grin crossed his face. Blowing up like that had felt good. It was more like the Han Solo he knew. Not this overly concerned rebel assistant he'd become in the last two months. For the past four hours, he'd been alone with Chewie as the Falcon traveled through hyperspace, and he'd enjoyed it. They'd argued, played a game of holochess, and performed a few minor repairs, just like they always did on hyperspace trips. And as the hours ticked by, Han had begun to disassociate himself from the young rebel who occupied the medical bunk. The kid was just a charter for which he'd be paid when the Falcon reached its destination. That was all. End of story. He'd get paid, and then he'd kiss the rebellion and her worshipfulness goodbye.

    Han swallowed. That last thought had been strangely unsettling. An image of himself kissing the princess unexpectedly formed in his mind, and the effect it had on him was unnerving. He shook his head. He hated that woman! That girl, really! She was barely out of childhood, and yet she had the nerve to boss him around and insult him at every turn. To make matters worse, she was good at it. That princess had a sharp head on her shoulders, that was undeniable. And she had a lot of spirit and determination; he had to give her that. She commanded attention, and she always got it, even from him. She wasn't bad to look at either.

    He shook his head again to clear it of the unexpected turn his thoughts had taken. The last person he wanted to be thinking about was the princess. That was certain. She was too young, too idealistic, and too committed to a cause for his tastes. She'd suckered him into too many runs with the Rebellion, and he'd grown to resent it. After all, his ship was already marked because of the events surrounding the Death Star's destruction. He didn't need to draw any more of the Empire's attention toward the Falcon than it had already received. If he could change the past, he would. But since that was impossible, it was time to focus on the future and distancing himself from the Rebellion. If he didn't, paying off Jabba was going to be next to impossible. No one would hire a guy whose ship was on the Empire's most wanted list. He needed his anonymity. It was time to start seeking it.

    Satisfied with his resolve, he rose from his chair and moved toward the maintenance hatch where Chewie was busily working on the power couplings for the shield generators. He'd noticed a fluctuation on the way to Ryall, and it was impe

    The best way to bring a fever down would be to open the hatch and expose Luke to the cold blackness of space.

    Of course that would kill him, but it would bring down the fever. ;)

    Oh BTW, I loved the line about kissing the Rebellion and her Worshipfulness goodbye.

    Whoa, KnightMara, Luke's really getting me worried here. Deliciously, though, I really love the Luke-torture. =P Your descriptions are scary but right-on.

    Han's struggle on whether to stay with the Rebellion or not will be deepened by this story, I think. Can't wait for more...I hope you have time to write, what with all the rain! Huh, there's the one good thing about a flood... =D

    Herman, that is just so sadistic. :) Especially since now I have that goshawful scene from Event Horizon in my head. . .blechhh!

    JMMJ, rest assured that Luke's illness only exists to serve the purposes of this story. . .it is set two months after ANH, and it isn't AU.

    Neon Star, thanks for the vote of confidence in my portrayal of Han. That was my main worry with this story. None of the others that I've written have been told from his point of view, which is something I really wanted to try.

    Jee-dai, true, but note that I mention Luke's whining in most of my stories. :) It's one of those character traits that makes him human, ya' know?


    Hope to have more written tomorrow.

    Actually, it's not as bad as some other cases. You can still read all the words in a post.

    For those of you who are following this thread, I just wanted to let you know that it may be a few days or more before the next post goes up. I know I'm usually pretty good about posting, but RL is getting in the way right now. Hope you guys don't let this sink too far. There is more to come, I just have to finish it up, and that may take a while.
