The Choice (rp for emperors_blade)
OOC: Takes place following THIS.
Mara was alone in the Emperor's library, looking up some facts that she didn't need to know. Really, she just needed a place where she could think alone and uninterrupted. It was the best she could think of.
After that display of power from her Master, she had no words. It wasn't the use of the Force he'd shown, or the fact that he had taken the Kid to task for almost sabotaging their mission. She'd done the same thing, actually, but it was the sheer ruthlessness that she'd witnessed.
Galen was green, sure, but she wasn't so positive he was deserving of a punishment that would land him in a medship. And to see that most of his body was mechanical...? She was surprised, frankly, that his ability to use the Force was so strong, considering.
It just didn't feel right to her. She served the Empire. She wasn't so sure about the Emperor anymore, though.
Finally leaving to go to Caedus, where Starkiller would be hopefully patched up and his mechanical parts repaired, she made her decision. As Mara strode purposefully into the room where Galen was recuperating, she looked down at him and smirked. Yeah, she knew he wouldn't like pity, so he wasn't going to get any from her. Sympathy, empathy... that was different. But pity? No.
"Get up. Time to go. Another day, another mission, and I need you by my side, Galen."
Mara hoped he understood what she was really saying.
