On the Run

The Puddle Jumper breaks out of hyperspace with a sharp jolt, sending Janus lurching in her seat with a sigh. Leaning back, Janus tries her best to wrap her head around what she just saw. Suddenly, Kodo appeared behind her, looking out at the planet ahead of them. "Mandalor? Why here?"

Janus turns in her seat, a look of frustration an bewilderment on her face, "Because it was a blind jump, what do you expect? But..." She places her hands on either side of the control panel, "We're not going anywhere until you tell me just what the fuck happened back there. Who were those guys? How do they know you? Since when did you get a lightsaber?...How'd you get through that blast door?"

Kodo looked at Janus for a few moments, unsure of how to explain anything, before he shut himself off. "All you need to know is that Zabrak is someone who's known for for a long time, and has had a grudge for just about as long. He's not going to stop until he finds us, so I suggest we find somewhere to lie low for a while."

Janus stands from her chair, confronting the man towering over her, "What, that's it? Bullshit, tell me what's going on right now!"

"I said that's all you need to know! Now take us..." Kodo slams his hand onto the console, denting the metal and making Janus jump before he pulls back, taking a few deep breaths to try and compose himself. "Please, just take us down. These aren't the kind of people we can handle straight on. We need some time to figure out what to do."

For a few moments, Janus doesn't move, a rising anxiety about her safety slowly simmers down as she slowly sits back down into the pilot's chair. "Fine, I'll see what I can find...And, sorry about the couch." She turns back to the controls as she slowly brings the ship around, descending towards Mandalor.
