It was amusing to hear something so wise coming from Theron…the togruta wasn’t entirely certain why it was, but it certainly was, earning him a snicker as she caught his returned smile. The second half of his reply to her, however, was…unexpected. Certainly she knew what he’d meant to say, but what he’d ACTUALLY said….well, that was a completely different story. Again, she was thankful she was red toned already as she felt herself blush. Unfortunately for her, it was deep enough that the white markings along the sides of her face flushed a light pink.
Though she kept her mind shielded, her thoughts also had wandered along the lines of his. Had he truly enjoyed their race and that kiss so much that he’d accidentally hinted to it? For a moment she was tempted to kiss him again to find out, but that jedi resolve won out and she kept herself in place. It wasn’t right to do…to allow her temptation to break the boundaries his lifestyle set out for him. She cared about him too much to do that to him. Already toeing the line, the last thing Theron needed was an excuse to step over…as she had. That was one reason she’d been glad that he hadn’t been there when Vex had fought her…when he’d won…it would have been a harsh push in the wrong direction for him. If it had brought her to the decision of leaving the Order…what would it have done to him? It was then that she realized…perhaps she hadn’t simply protected Makiro that night. His apology caught her off guard and she flicked a lekku at him incredulously as she turned to face him fully, one hand still placed against the railing
Don’t apologize, Theron. You were simply doing your job…I would have been disappointed in you had you put it off because of my own agendas. I’ll manage without…there will be other opportunities for me to get the parts I need, I’m sure.
That typical jedi confidence had come up at her words, adamant that he understand her view of the situation.
My life is no more difficult than it was previously...there’s just a temporary setback in one set of plans.
