Thanks all! I appreciate the feedback. Um...yeah. I think we would all like to see that. Unfortunately, our almost perfect padawan isn't about to confess his feelings any time soon because Jedi don't fall in love. I think K'Tai is hoping that is the case. Somewhere in the back of her head she's thinking, "If I can get De'vona involved with Donal's business publically, there will be less oposition when I ask to go train at the Temple." Of course this presupposes that they make it off Unagin. We aim to please. You might just be on to something. Although if De'vona admits to enjoying the self-defense training what else is she going to do to annoy her sister? Without further ado, the next installment in which our padawan shows his feelings and yet remains blissfully unaware of them. Men! Let me know if you want me to add or remove you from the tags. Tags: Findswoman, Gemma 963:01:05 Hi K'Tai, Viral neuropathy, as in a cold that makes your nerves not work? That sounds bad depending on what nerves it affects. I can imagine that it's a pretty tense situation if entire cities are under quarantine. Please be careful. I might have an opportunity to get to Kress in the next couple of months. It would be nice if you were also back and in one piece by then. I've passed your message to Kur-Cot. He asked me to relay this, word for word, "Raptors hunt ever vigilant. Tread softly." I assume that you or one of the adepts will know what it means, as I have no clue. He was actually going to have me relay in M'bantu but I kept butchering the pronunciation so badly that he thought it best that I convey it in Basic. You will have to tell me the next time we see each other just what I was saying. He had a very hard time keeping a straight face. He wants a full report on death toll, disease severity, and anything else you can think of that might be important. You are to continue to focus on helping the adepts and guarding Donal. Kur-Cot also had me pass on your message to the Healers at the Temple. I haven't heard back from them yet. He did talk to De'vona, and she has assumed her role well. She also asked me to give you a message. "Be careful and bring the two people I care about most home safely. You have another to live for so don't go being stupidly heroic." Again, when we're in the same place you can tell me who this other person is. I didn't think, given the whole betrothal thing, that you had interest in anyone else... In response to your question they were all on route to Unagin on the way to their final destination...I think I see where you are going with that question. Not quite sure why that didn't occur to me earlier. I'm going to be spending a lot of time with shipping manifests in the next couple of days. I'll keep you informed about what we find. I mean it about being careful. Sick people can be unreasonable. I know this from personal experience. Healthy people afraid of becoming sick can be even more dangerous. Stay safe. May the Force be with you. 963:01:15 Jedi Emergency Channel Hi Obi. I'm going to strangle De'vona when I get home. I can't believe she said that to you...I'm not entirely sure of what she is talking about, but I can guess. Anyway, rest assured that if I had an interest in another, you'd know about it. You are one of my closest friends. As for what you were saying, there are a couple of options that spring to mind, both of which are, shall we say, more suited to a bar or brothel than the Jedi Temple. I'll know when I hear you say it...and I'm going to enjoy seeing your face when you find out what you said because you will have said it to me. I'll be living the dream of many girls across the galaxy - having a Jedi give her a pick up line. I made you blush. My mission here is accomplished. All kidding aside, this will be short and sweet because I have just enough time to record about a minute and then go grab something to eat before going back to the House of Healing. I can take care of myself, thanks. Security is the least of my problems right now. The entire planet is now under quarantine. The virus, if that is indeed what this thing is, seems to have different symptoms depending on a person's midichlorian count. Those with higher counts seem to be hit harder with more central nervous symptoms including dementia. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't scared. Would you do me a favor? Can you find out who the Jedi at the conference were? I want to make sure I know who they are in case they end up here. It will save us precious time in getting them stabilized. We're having better results if we are aggressive from the outset in our treatment, but for some reason using Force techniques on those who are Force-sensitive makes things worse, not better. I want to avoid delirious lightsaber-wielding Jedi if I can. I deflect blaster bolts, but a lightsaber? That would be difficult. I would definitely want to practice with you before I had to try it in a real situation. Tell both De'vona and Kur-Cot that Donal took a turn for the worse, but he's stable now and starting to recover. Luckily the weakness only progressed to partial paralysis. I'm hopeful that he will be able to walk with help in the next week or so. Talk to you soon. Safe paths and steady travels, my friend.
