I’ve been in the dark since I got here, and I’m not just talking about the basement Samiel set me up in, I suppose I should have either asked a few more questions, or been wise enough to suspect these guys were up to some less than totally legal stuff, what with all the gear I was fixing and tuning up, nobody comes by that much wizard scrap legally, whatever the case is they…or I guess we are in some hot water, seems like they might have seen it coming the only warning I got was Nathan telling me to always keep Bivvy’s blaster on me.
He’s sorta an ominous guy…keeps callin’ me “Nix”, but I’m not gonna correct him. He’s the only real pilot I’ve ever met apart from Biv, seems like he’s seen more than his share; we’ve been getting shot at and he doesn’t seem nearly worried enough…none of ‘em do. I can’t tell if that’s good or bad yet, but I don’t think I’ll have to wait long to find out.
I don’t really know what ties these guys together, other than a surprisingly urgent need to get offworld. Nathan and Sam seem pretty familiar based on how much they butt heads and, until just recently I’d only heard of Gadik, he doesn’t seems to say a whole lot. Not long ago I overheard something about a Twi’lek girl, it sounded like his voice, but after meeting him I can’t imagine him getting so worked up as the voice from that conversation.
It hasn’t been long but I can’t say I’m too sad to get off Tattooine, or at least out of Mos Shuuta to see more of it, between all the sand and the sun it doesn’t seem like anyone would last long outside of a city here, at least on Sullust the smoke from volcanoes give us some relief from the sun; does a good job of trapping water too; I’ve been thirsty since I got here.
All the blaster fire has me a little shaken, but based on the waves of guys shooting at us it doesn’t seem like we had much of a choice but to take off as soon as possible. Still I feel bad for leavin’ thumbs behind, hopefully the junker doesn’t find him. Between him and Gadik’s Twi’lek I’m not so sure we’re done with Mos Shuuta, but we’ll certainly have to let things cool down before we even think about a rescue…and that’s all assuming the tie fighters don’t take us down before I can get the Hyperdrive installed.
