It was time. Finally. How long had Jessoin waited in earnest? How long had he pleaded for Lady Renata to let him go on a mission. A real mission, not some silly assassination or bombing. Then again, bombing wasn't the proper term. For weeks Renata had sent him out into the galaxy to scorch a building, or an office, or a home. It was amazing how baffled local law enforcement would be by the infamous "lightning bomb" that was being used now. Funny how not one thought to consult the Jedi on the matter. Typical pride doing what it did best. No one wanted Jedi meddling in their affairs. A Jedi meant drama, death, disorder, just what the Republic fought to avoid. Just what the Republic failed to realize. Death and disorder were apart of life, it was ridiculous to think otherwise. And yet people did...
And thus why it was time to do something bigger than a mere family or business. It was time to strike deep into the Core. To show the Republic and Jedi that nowhere was safe from the Sith's reach. There were no safe havens. No impenetrable walls. No way out. Nothing. Jess looked over at his partner for the mission. It was his first time working with another besides Renata, every other mission had been either with her or solo.
Tesa. He knew very little about the younger woman. But he also knew better than to underestimate her by her youth. Renata herself was younger than him... but powerful in ways that made the Zelosian shudder for a moment. A shudder of fear, anxiety... pleasure... how he craved that power. Like some endlessly hungry worm in the pit of his stomach, Jessoin's expression would turn something less than normal for a flash before he clamped down on his greed. Now wasn't the time to show the predator. Now was a time for charm, charisma. A veneer of confidence and control. A smooth comment to show he was normal:
"So I hear this elegant beauty before me is familiar with Empress Teta? I've never been myself, but often heard of its radiance... "
He laughed softly and stood from his seat across from Tesa and moved to window of the shuttle that carried them and leaned against the wall. Jessoin peered out into the rising sun as it glistened off industrial mile after industrial mile. Naturally where they were wasn't the prettiest of Empress Teta, but even it's factories were elegant. Soft curved architecture and sleek designs. Much like their destination.
A marvel to say the least, some sort of factory that was suspended among the clouds. A floating fortress meant to be torn asunder from the heavens. He assumed Tesa knew what was created here, and why they were taking it down. Jessoin was just the 'muscle' of the operation. The one to do the damage, take the hits. Set off the bomb so to speak. Their shuttle rose to meet the docking bay in the east side of the factory. They had reached their destination.
Jessoin moved toward the door as the shuttle landed and the door began to hiss open. He looked down to pat his uniform. A standard security outfit supplied by their contact. He looked Tesa up and down and admired the way her outfit hugged her body before giving her a wicked smile, and he whispered
"Ready to bring down the sky, precious?"
