Bars and nightclubs never lasted very long in Kaas City – which was not to say that there weren’t plenty of them. They simply never lasted and Imago wasn’t entirely sure why that was. Legal complications, maybe. Young bored Sith had a way of creating those. Another few years and it might be recognized as a right of passage.
Schway defied the trend, though. Originally built to serve the spaceport, its rough appearance hadn't changed much over the years – except perhaps to sag a little more towards the ground. The speeder lot out front was cracked and pitted, slowly being reclaimed by the planet’s voracious jungle. The inside wasn’t much better, really. Worn down, wood and warm colors and stringy, sticky carpet. But Imago thought it had a certain charm.
Everything shook as a ship took off next door. Imago grit his teeth and held on to his drinks, palms down over the top of a row of sloshing shot glasses filled nearly to the brim.
Perhaps charm was too generous. But the drinks were cheap and the location itself could hardly be more convenient. He downed another of the shots, dried his hands with a bar towel, and took another not-so-subtle glance around.
A couple days ago, Imago had thought that someone would probably stop him. If even half of the rumors were true, volunteering for this recon mission to Teth was suicidal – not to mention perhaps the single stupidest thing he’d ever done.
Reluctantly, he’d begun to accept the fact that this was really happening. It had started when all of his procurement requests had actually been approved. The personal starship of the late Darth Novus, fueled up and fully stocked. Who wouldn’t want to take that for a little spin around the galaxy? A suit of top of the line space armor, sized for his slightly atypical build of “too fucking tall” and whipcord thin. Now officially the most expensive clothing he’d ever owned, but he still didn’t want to die in it.
If this was his last night alive among civilization, Imago intended to enjoy it.
