I am finally having some time to write in you; my dear old journal. I don’t think I have done this much fighting in my life. I don’t normally like to be in the front lines, I prefer to sit back and see where it’s going to go and then if needed join in. But here on Drexil IV, it’s been needed over and over again. The bar fight was handled by Cam and Reddish, but after that I’ve had to be on the front lines of fighting these people. Has this moon always had this much violence, or do we attract it to us like a magnet?
First we captured Morgan, then he escaped, then I win the race and there he is on deck, which was a cause for another fight. Which again, I must say the race was AMAZING! I’m still riding on the adrenaline high from winning that race.
Once we came back with Morgan for the second time, Cam decided that he was going to sit on him with a gun pointed to his head until we delivered him. Even though he used 50 feet of mesh tape, and Morgan was basically taped to the floor of the Can. While we were settling down, we had visitors come to the docking bay. It was two Lardyss guards and a man who works for Geron, with an invitation to a celebratory dinner in my honor. Unfortunately the invitation was only for one, so I wasn’t able to bring Rhya and Reddish with me. I had about an hour before needing to go up, so the five of us sat around and shared a little about ourselves. Apparently Cam and I have a common enemy; Gretta the Hut, Cam has seen firsthand what Gretta is capable of. Knowing a little more about them is making it easier to have them feel like friends. Still not too keen on helping out strangers, but I’m okay with helping out my new friends now.
I got ready in my best pilot suit to meet Geron, I left with just the clothing on my back when I escaped from Gretta, now that I have some more credits, it may be time to buy something a little more my style. When I got to Geron’s, the senator was having dinner with us, and Geron sure went to a lot of trouble and had all of my favorite Ryll food, it was delicious, I haven’t eaten that well since I left home. Half way through the dinner, the senator started to feel ill, which did not surprise Geron one bit and ended up leaving our small dinner party. Once he left Geron asked me if I would be interested in a job, to transport some goods to another world. It doesn’t sound like it’s risky and the goods are rare but he didn’t make them sound illegal so I agreed. Upon arrival I will receive 1500 credits for delivery! I also was awarded my winnings from him for the race, another 1500 credits! I also asked him if he’d be able to wave our docking fees and he said he would call in a few favors for us, and that is very exciting that the large fee is no longer over my head. When I was leaving Geron’s I was floating on clouds, first I won the race by a mile (well okay maybe not a full mile) and then got my first job after my run in with Gretta. It would have been nice to stay on cloud 9, but then my com went off…
Rhya was in an elevator being attacked! It sure does seem our group is a magnet for trouble on this moon. We were able to find the elevator that was stopped between floors and Reddish’s skill with his light saber was able to get to her quickly. Her assailant disappeared into thin air, how did he do that!? She was pretty banged up but we were able to help her begin to heal. As we were walking back to the Can ready to head out to deliver Morgan, we get a call from Cam saying that someone just took off with the navicomputer and they are running our way.
My initials thoughts were pure panic, I couldn’t get Morgan to the mid rim world in time without it, nor would we be able to hyper jump. Who was trying to keep us on the moon? And once again I found myself on the chase, another fight about to break out.
Luckily we were able to fumble our away across that conveyer belt and make it into the factory, how we all got split up, who knows. I was able to help take some of the guys down trying to attack us, but something from who knows where kept attacking Rhya, and then he was able to take off with her. Disappearing again in thin air! So frustrating not being able to save her from the attack, she kept being hit again and again going unconscious. After following her we were faced with a droid war, and with the man trying to keep us on the moon. Dam Cevil, CEO of Lardyss. We all thought that Geron was the bad guy, and who knew that the CEO of the company was the true evil person, and he was NOT happy with us. Good thing I had my ion pistol to be able to combat the droids better, seeing Rhya up on the tower unconscious was a different feeling for me. I was scared; I didn’t want to lose my new friend. I have never had a girl friend before; it makes me wonder what might transpire from it.
Through some lucky shots and Rhya coming back from unconsciousness we were able to defeat Dam Cevil with Geron’s help. He even patched us up and then took us to a medic bay for more help; some of my friends were looking very hurt. The feeling that you might lose a friend and be a witness to their death is nothing I have ever felt before, it’s very confusing. We are now back on the Can, getting prepared to head out to deliver his package of goods. It feels good to be alone, somewhat, I’m use to being alone, and being with people all the time is something I think I’ll have to get use to. For now I will just hole up in my bunk when I need some time to think and write, I’ll have to make sure Wasp knows not to sneak in during these times, however I didn’t notice when he came in and put an umbrella in my drink.
I have been getting home sick lately, I haven’t seen Mom and Dad in a long time, but I’m just not sure if it’s safe to return there quite yet. I should try to send word to them that I am well, since they think I’m off with the Navy. It would be so easy to return to them, to be able to say “I want this or that” and to have it. To work for the things I want is a hard concept to get use to, although I do like earning more money. I will have to remember to check in with Driggs in a couple of months and Geron also for any races that may be coming up.
Well my dear old journal, I have caught you up on all the major events that have happened in the last few days. What an adventure it has been here on Drexil IV!
