It’s been a long trip from Wroona, but I think things may have just changed for the better.
Laying low and working odd jobs to keep some credits in my pockets was one thing, but this may just be something all together life changing.
I was just doing some odd work in the bay, when I noticed a well appointed ship land. At first it looked like another rich kid for the gaming tables, but this ship… this thing was loaded. Imperial tech, astrotech, aftermarket boosters… and the list goes on. This was definitely somebody who needed a good mechanic. Maybe… just maybe I thought… this was a ticket out of here and away from daily near misses with the navy troops on the station.
Out of the ship walks this blue guy. Fancy armor and cagey by the looks of him, followed by a Human. She seemed to be in charge, but this guy was the one to follow. So I did.
Well, he managed to get ambushed and stabbed by this Duros. I could hear the commotion, but by the time I got there, he was on the promenade, and the Duros was hanging back and watching him from the shadows. Well… this guy was my potential ticket off of here, providing he needed a mechanic… and survived.
After stabbing the Duros in the back and letting him drop heavily to the ground, I watched as the blue guy and some Twi’lek got harassed by those navy assholes.
I made the decision that I was leaving, and it would be on this blue guy’s ship. And I hate those guys…. those were the soldiers that kept harassing me. Just the other day they had tried, and I was close to doing something about it when Leek happened upon us and stopped it.
And now that you mention it… Leek was there too. He was already trying to get in the middle of things. Well… he has good intentions and definitely has presence, but these guys seem to REALLY want the blue guy. This is going to turn bad any second, so…. may as well surprise them.
I shot one of them in the back. The bigger jerk of the three. Things went south from there, but all that matters is that we killed the three of them as a group and made a quick getaway down the elevators.
As we all spoke, I found out that they are some kind of dissident group… and they really DO need a mechanic. Thanks to Leek, they accepted me. At least by word for the moment. Miko was there too.. too bad about his dad, but we had spoken a few days before on the transport in. I am glad he’s alright, and that he’s here. At least that’s a few people I know in on this. And it doesn’t hurt that they seem to hate the empire. I can probably help a little on that front.
So we laid low and went to meet one of the blue guy’s contacts. Ghest was his name by the way… and we needed to go to a cargo bay and meet someone named Switch.
Well…. Switch was a droid. And he had a smart ass R5 with him. I heard that comment, tin can. I get the “jist” of at least a little Binary…
Switch was a jerk too. Insisting on payment for a package of some sort that had already had pickup arranged. I have no idea what this is about, but if it’s for this group…. well… they’re my best and only shot of getting out of here.
So… after thinking on it as the others squabbled, I gave Switch some info about the Wroona base. It’s half strength, could be broken into by someone who knows what they are doing, steal some weapons, etc…
Well, he seemed interested, so I gave him the access codes I could remember. Willing to gamble on it, he then told us where the package was. And then this gangster walks in and ruins everything…..
