    26 year old Adrian Malek, son of Nobel House on Eridau, was serving the GA during the Second Galactic War. He left with his then Lead Adalia Tehanis to join a rogue third party group, there he met 30 year old Marie'da (Marie) Lena Firestone of Dathomir. She was a Yuuzang Vong war veteran who served under the same Lead. Once their eyes met, it was a done deal. Now they have two worlds of obstacles to over come if they want to be together.




    Adrian

    They tried to sell me as a slave. I have to write it down to fully comprehend it: they tried to sell me as a slave. Of course I heard the stories, from the ghost tales that Ilona told me to Marie making a joke about buying me when we first saw each other. But a part of mine never took that fully seriously, always doubted slavery was actually still in place on Dathomir, but it is, and I nearly became a victim of it. I remember a story dad told us about years ago about the time he was most afraid in his life, when he had been captured by slavers with the intention lf selling him to the Hutts, only breaking free just in time when he and the other would be slaves started a revolt against their captors. My father has been in dangerous situations for all his life but this apparently stood out to him, and I think now I understand it. The feeling of being completely helpless while all those witches leered at me like a piece of meat. I never want to feel that again in my life and my heart is filled with pity for all those poor men and boys who suffer through this on Dathomir, everyday of their lives. Wish I could do something to help them, wish they had someone like Marie who saves them from their dark fate. Well some had, ten of them who Marie had saved as well and who now worked for her. I admire her for that, almost more than I'm thankful she has saved me. Had believed I was doomed but then she came, beautiful in her armor like the warrior women of old Eriaduan myths to save me from a fate worse than death. I love her, there I said it, probably have for quite some time but since today I am sure. She is beautiful, a great warrior, with an honesty to her that is so lacking in the nobles of my homeworld, she fights the injustices of her own homeworld, even going against her own mother to protect me. And she paid 5000 credits for me, defiantly mean a lot to her. But can I tell her that I love her? She is a few years older and our backgrounds are so different. Does she really want a 26 year old Eriaduan with little experience in matters of love and intimacy? Is all the flirting/kissing just for fun or does she feel the same way as I do? I'm sure she does, but I'm too afraid to ask her.




    Marie

    I'm so Angry! My mother enrages me! How dare she? How dare she believe she has the right to not only enter my home but take someone from it and put him on display for sale. I am tempted to challenge her in the ring of battle for my honour, but doing things like that are what I've been fighting all these years. I was able to stop it, thankfully. Made me slip into some sort of protective mode, cause when I got there I could almost taste his fear through the Force. That really pissed me off, she really scared him and I can't accept that. It was bad enough she disapproved, it's not her place to disapprove. She doesn't get it. I may have been born here but I've been out there, I've seen how men are not inferior in the greater galaxy, I know they are equals. Adrian is my equal, he's more than that. I kinda made him feel weak I think, when I bought him. 5,000 Credits, Stang!!! The truth is I'd pay everything I have if I had too. Thing is I'm not sure what I feel yet. I feel so strongly about him, I can feel he is attracted to me, I can feel he wants to be around me and trusts me. I just don't think I am ready to say how I feel, cause I'm not even sure how that is right now. He makes me laugh, he makes me smile and when I kiss him I get that feeling of a million butterflies having been set free in my stomach. My mother is no help on this subject, she can't even tell me who my father is so I doubt matters of the heart even register with her. Sometimes, when he holds me, I feel scared of how strongly the need to be closer is. Sometimes I feel like I would give up everything to be with him, to have him hold me, to feel his heartbeat. Those times I want to be that helpless damsel in distress, want him to protect me. That's so not who I am and that is scary. When did this 'Marie' appear, where'd she come from and can she exist with the other me? I don't know, I hope she can. I'm lost emotionally, but I suggested tonight we go to his home, to meet his family, I'm hoping that will go better. Maybe then I will know more of what my heart wants.

    [face_dancing] Lovely parallel diary!! I love how Adrian is certain of his own feelings and thinks: Someone so all-together - would she even be interested in me? And Marie comes from the other end of things: Men have always been so trivialized and love as a feeling between equals not even acknowledged. It is very understandable she needs to puzzle through exactly how and what she's feeling. =D=

    Its getting late and I need to sleep, I'm tried yet don't know if I'll be able to find sleep with Marie still in danger. The doctors say she is recovering and Daron's attack didn't weaken her too much, Ilona is now with her and keeping guard that something like this won't happen again. How could I be so foolish to trust Daron? If I had realized the truth just a minute too late it would have been over, too late to save the woman I love. This treacherous vermin! He cam into our house with his fake smile, staged a fight and tried to murder Marie, just for his dammed political advancement. In moments like this I really hate my home world and the scheming going on here every day. Maybe I should have killed Daron, make him pay for what he did. Hope he rots in prison, in a small dark cell with only rats to keep him company. That's the least he deserves. I need to calm myself down so I can finally get some sleep. Marie is safe and my heart with her, not sure if I had been able to comprehend loosing her, especially in such a way. Hope she will be awake again by tomorrow because I have to tell her something, to tell her that I love her, won't let anyone get between us again.

    Marie

    And here I was thinking Eridau would be better than Dathomir. Stupid! Talk about outcast! That was me, stood out like Darth Vader at a Rebel convention and all that got me was attempted murder. Adrian stopped the guy, can't even remember his name, pretty average face, but I doubt I will forget it now. When someone poisons you and then shoves a pillow on your face in an attempt to suffocate you, you kinda remember that. Ilona was here when I woke the second time, and kriff I felt so much better, stronger even. I was able to have a sanistream on a chair and put some normal clothes on with her help. I wanted to be looking better when he got there. I hope I did look better! Ilona helped me up to start walking again, I wanted to be standing, I wanted to show him I was good. I'm strong, I know that, but I needed for some silly reason for him to see that. He came in at the perfect time and I literally fell into him, his arms. Felt so good when he pulled me up close to him, the weak 'Marie' appeared again! Where does she come from? It's like every vulnerable part of me I have hidden for all my life bubbles to the surface when he touches me! I had to do it, I've wanted too for a while but I needed to kiss him! Not just peck like we've been doing up to now, no, I wanted to really kiss him, and I did! Stang it felt good, and if Ilona hadn't been there I might have tried more! Is this love? We're taught to allow it to feel good, but love is out of the question. I don't know, cause Dathomiran women don't do that, at least not with their men. It is for him, he told me so. Right there in front of his Sister he told me he loved me. I couldn't say it back, I just don't know. I know I've never felt this way before, but I'm still not sure. Doesn't matter, he loves me. Me? Retired fighter pilot, Warrior woman with attitude who likes to push the rules. Spent most my life breaking the rules, maybe this is another rule I need to break.

    Adrian: His sense of protectiveness and outrage, very understandable. Eriadu is definitely a world steeped in treachery. [face_thinking]

    Marie ... "Darth Vader at a Rebel convention" [face_laugh] -- now if that isn't out of place I do not know what is. Her musings and feelings about and for Adrian -- SQUEE!

    Marie:

    I cannot believe I have a permanent mate. Who does that on Dathomir, there have been recorded cases, but not in recent history. It's not a rule, but feels like I broke it anyway, I like that. He was so brave getting his mark, most men pass out after a certain amount of time, some women do too. It looked sore and I was grateful he allowed me to put salve on it, to ease the pain and help it heal. It will heal and it is quite beautiful. He can't wear a shirt for a few days, so that's a plus for me I guess, lucky the weather is warm right now. I want to write about last night, our first night together. I do, but I fear he will find it and read it, but here goes. I have never talked about my past, but he wasn't my first. I'm Dathomirian, that act starts in our teens here and we pick and choose. Granted I never really did that, but I have had 'liaisons' in the past, nothing serious and nothing ever like last night. He was, for want of a better description, innocent? A part of that excited me, teaching is something I'm good at and I cannot think of a better thing to have to teach someone I love. Yes, I said it, I told him before the mark was done, I had too. When I saw how he was holding up, felt his determination and courage, I knew, something inside of me knew it was Love. I was in love with this man. Last night started a little awkward, but it ended on a crescendo of our pure love. Never felt that, never felt this before. How can this be wrong? Why would other women deny themselves this? I don't understand. I do want to do this right, I do want.....what do they call it, a wedding? I've been to a few, they look so beautiful, I'd like one I think but not here. Maybe back on his world where I swear will never take a drink from anyone ever again!


    Adrian:

    We did it, not a bachelor anymore, nor am I as naive as I was. It was a long day yesterday but it might be the most important day of my life. When Marie proposed to me... I will never forget that moment, don't think I would have ever been able to gather enough courage to ask her myself. I saw how happy she was when I accepted, as happy as I was when I realized she loves me as much much as I love her. Wasn't sure it wasn't just a dream until I got my tattoos, that pain showed me it had to be true, don't know how Marie managed to get those on her stomach, and deeper, without fading from the pain. And how I will be able to when the day comes that I get similar ones as well. Don't think I could have stayed conscious while it happened on my shoulder if Marie hadn't been there, given me strength. The tattoo itself, I don't know what to say, its beautiful similar to hers but held in the dark blue colour of my family, a link between my upbringing and my love. Can't wait until Ilona sees it! Marie says I can't wear a shirt for the next few days while its still fresh, but I don't worry about that too much. Here on Dathomir people aren't so prudent as on Eriadu but take pride in their appearance so I guess I should do too, plus I think Marie likes the view. And then after the tattoo we were intimate, I lost my innocence, on Eriadu a noble is supposed to only do so on their wedding night but I guess I'm pretty much the only noble who actually stuck with that, most do that earlier. I'm glad Marie wasn't repulsed by my inexperience but instead gentle as she showed me. It was wonderful, got nothing more to say than that.

    Thanks @Warrior_Goddess I´m really glad you enjoy our work with your character.

    Marie

    It was so funny. Fluffy was good today. Yeah, I know Fluffy as a name for a Rancor is kinda weird, but she's never been a particularly vicious girl. She's big, I will grant Adrian that, so when he was visibly shocked by her size I wasn't surprised at all. She's been pretty much roaming in the confinement of her enclosure for a while, I've not ridden her for sometime. When I went to saddled her she behaved beautifully. Getting Adrian to feed her was a treat, the lumps of meat we consumed at speed and I am pretty sure he thought he was next. I did laugh but I have to remember I was raised with them, and she was raised from a baby for me. She trusts me and I trust her. Getting him up into the saddle was a laugh, Fluffy seemed to know he was very apprehensive and squirmed to make it a little more difficult for him. She's very intuitive and I'm pretty sure she was playing with him, that's how it felt. We went for a ride and with him sitting so close behind me it was very intimate. I let him hold her reins for a bit and she was good. I know eventually he'll be able to ride her without me, that's my goal. But I will delay that one, as long as I can. See, for me it's and excuse to have him pressed up against me for legitimate reasons. Wonder if he's aware of my ulterior motives? I'm a very physical kind of woman, and at some point he will figure that out. Need to make this a thing we do more often, you know, till he gets the hang of it. Hope that takes.........years.


    Adrian

    My hand is still shaking a bit from today as I'm typing this. I've been on several hunts before, and some of the creatures of my homeworld are dangerous enough that even a well equipped hunting party could get into trouble. But this, the Rancor, Fluffy as Marie calls her, not sure if I have ever been so frightened of a creature before. Constantly thought of Ilona's scary stories on how the Witches used to feed slaves that displeased them to their pets. I know Marie would never do this that helped a little for me to stay calm. Marie had me feed her, said that's my duty from now on. Was probably a rough start then. Was shivering the entire time, just praying she wouldn't take my hand or my arm with her next bite. Frightening how much meat Rancor's eat in such short amounts of time. Marie definitely enjoyed herself, first she tried to hide her laughter but then it broke out of her. Just glad none of the other witches where around to see us. Though feeding her was only the start as Marie then had us ride her. I have ridden on equines before, during hunts or travels through the wilderness but this is a whole different world altogether. I believe Fluffy felt my nervousness and was squirming like hell. No wonder she and Marie get along so well, they both like to tease me it seems. When I finally sat in the saddle I pressed myself against Marie in front of me, arms around her stomach to get at least some hold on the Rancor's back. I was so terribly afraid at first but got more secure as we rode on. Later on she let me hold the rains, probably as the first male in the history of the Misty Falls clan to have ever done so. She said she seeks to teach me how to ride her on my own one day, not sure if I look forward to that, liked being so close with her today.

    [face_laugh] I was amused by Adrian's understandable discomfort and Marie's teasing and openly admitting to want a legitimate reason for close contact - these two are too endearing! [face_mischief]

    Marie

    I could cheerfully strangle him! That would defeat the purpose of course but its hard to show my mother how smart he is when he ignores my advice and gets himself like this. I knew that bite had eggs in it, I knew when he came back from feeding Fluffy that he needed to see the Clan healer. But no, he knew better. I could cheerfully strangle him!!! This is my home, my world, I know what is harmless and what isn't, if he'd listened in that first hour I'd not be sitting here all night hoping he gets through it. Maybe it's my fault, the 'Fluinsies' are always around when we feed the Rancor. They prefer live flesh over dead, but they will take the meat being fed if there is no choice. We Dathomirians know about them, I guess I should have warned him, but I think because I grew up with them I forgot about them. Then again, if he'd listened when I first saw it and we'd gotten help, he'd not be looking at possible demise overnight. I watch him laying there on our bed, sweating and moaning in his sleep, but there isn't anything I can do other than cooling his head with my wet towels. I just hope and pray he makes it through the night. I have such good news for him if he does.


    Adrian

    I could beat myself! Maybe Marie's mother was right in thinking I'm just a dumb slave. Was feeding Fluffy yesterday been doing this every day for quite some time now, first I saw it as a chore but then I realized it helps me and her to bond with each other. Marie is right, she is a real sweetheart once you get to know her. But then, got bitten by some flies, at least I thought that was it. When I returned to Marie she was upset, wanted me to see a healer, but I didn't listen, not wanting to be seen as a weakling again. But then things got worse, my memory of the night is blurry filled with endless pain, thought I might have to die, almost did. Don't know how Marie managed it but she got the clan's healer to help me. Felt Marie's presence next to me the entire night, giving me strength. I know she is angry about my mistake. Can't hold it against her, especially after what she told me this morning. She is pregnant with our first child, a child that would have almost lost its father to his own stupid pride.

    Wow that was worrying and a very understandable pitfall: something Marie is familiar with and doesn't think to warn Adrian about until it happens. :eek: Thankfully he recovered, and what squeelicious news! =D=
