    Time to get acquainted..(Open)

    The young woman was sitting at the furthest table in the back, enjoying a drink while watching people enter and leave the tavern. It was a very quiet atmosphere and she enjoyed it. Life seemed to be very simple, but she knew her new life wouldn't be an easy one. She knew she had to have the deepest commitment, meaning she had to devote her life to the Jedi Order. Everything else had to go, meaning love, relationships and even adventure. It was hard to accept, but she had to. Talisa always kept to herself, but this time, she felt a night around people would be a good change of pace.

    Daunte Aidan, the former Imperial trooper, was tired, but also hungry. In his past life, he wouldn't have minded that hunger feeling, and just would've ignored it. But now in his new life, he need not do that. Not right now anyways.

    Maybe if he were on a mission and food was not enough, then he would block it, but no reason to do so now, not in his new life.

    He made his way into the Mountain Side Tavern, the place seemed a bit busy, quiet, but busy. The ex-captain, was not used to crowded places yet, so he was gonna leave when a familiar face caught his attention.

    'Talisa'...he thought as he noticed the woman to be deeply inmersed in her thoughts. Yes, Talisa, the woman he had met the other day at this very same establishment. The women with who he felt that closeness, that brothers and sisters do. Yes, she was there and it seemed like a good opportunity for Daunte to talk to her again.

    He approached the beatiful padawan and while nodding in respect he asked "M'lady...mind if I join you?"

    Hearing a voice speak, Talisa turned her head to see Daunte standing beside her table. She nodded and smiled, glad to see him again.

    "No, I don't mind at all, Daunte. How have you been?"

    Posted by Daunte Aidán on 11-17-2002 06:51 PM:

    The padawan could see that she was happy to see him again. He sat down and replied

    "I have been well, m'lady. Still getting acquianted with everything" He then looked at her and gave her a warm smile "Any recommendations as in what's good to eat here?" He then simply laughed.

    "How about you, m'lady? How have you been?" He then put both arms on the table putting his hands together and paying full attention to Talisa.

    Talisa smiled and watched as he sat down.

    "I'm glad you are doing alright. I've not had the chance to get to know everyone just yet, except you and my master, of course. Everyone else seems... well hesitant."

    She shrugged and looked to the menu.

    "I'm not sure about what is good just yet, although steak sounds good right about now."

    Daunte nodded to Talisa's statement. Indeed not many people did he know since his arrival. His master Aura StarRider, his interviewer at the recruitment hall, Amalia Azalin, and obviously Talisa Darksun. The former imperial couldn't but wonder why were people so reluctant at knowing others.

    "Steak sounds quite right. Would you join me?" He asked warmly as he waved for someone/something to please come and take their order.

    Posted by Talisa on 11-17-2002 11:10 PM:

    "Sure, sounds great."

    She smiled and nodded. By then, the waiter approached to take their order. She gave him her order and turned to Daunte, waiting for him to state his.

    "I'll have the glass of water, please..." He then looked at Talisa, with a smile drawn upon his face "Did you order anything to drink?"

    As he awaited for a reply he added "So, how have you been?"

    Posted by Talisa on 11-25-2002 06:06 PM:

    "Just water please, thank you."

    She smiled again.

    "I've been...well...again."

    She chuckled at his repitition. For some reason, she felt on edge and nervous... butterflies were in her stomach.

    Daunte was aware he had already plunged that question, but for some reason, he didn't know how else to make conversation with the woman. For some reason, he seemed a bit nervous around her, with just one other person had he had this feeling before, yet though it was the same, it was different, same but different.

    The former Stormtrooper, somehow sensed, the lady felt the same way, and was no stranger to the feeling that Daunte was having.

    He then chuckled, too at her answer and try to kept the conversation going.

    "Well then....How is your training going?"

    Posted by Talisa on 11-28-2002 02:09 AM:

    "Good so far. I've only managed the use of the Force so far. this is going to be challenging for me."

    Posted by Daunte Aidán on 12-03-2002 12:39 AM:

    "It should prove challenging for me as well" Daunte had a flashback of his very firs training session, where he had to leave behind his Imperial life, that of a SWAT Stormtrooper. He seemed to be caught in a trance, that didn't even last for 5 seconds, but for him seemed like an evernity.

    He shooked his head as if snapping out of the trance and then looked at his fellow Padawan.

    Posted by Talisa on 12-05-2002 06:52 PM:

    It was then that she sensed it, a slight uneasiness in her fellow padawan. She saw him stare ahead for just a few seconds and then suddenly blink, looking at her. A look of concern swept across her face.

    "You alright? You seem distracted."

    Posted by Daunte Aidán on 12-13-2002 09:56 AM:

    " fine" *Daunte still seemed a bit distracted after splits of a second, his normal, friendly expression was back in his face* "Just a memory...sorry about that..."

    *The former imperial could see the concern in Talisa's face, to which he replied with a simple smile and added*

    "Let me assure you, nothing's wrong. I'm perfectly fine"

    ~OOC: Sorry it took me so long to reply. For some reason I missed it was my turn, sowwy

    .:She took a sip from her drink and smiled.:.

    "I'm glad. It concerns me to see my friends and fellow padawans distracted."

    .:Leaning back in her chair more, she was curious to know what he was remembering and asked gently, trying not to pry too much:.

    "What was the memory about?"

    Posted by Daunte Aidán on 12-16-2002 08:42 AM:

    "I would be most certain, you don't want to know" Daunte was not ashamed of his past, it's something he was, something he did and now it was over. It certainly wasn't something to brag about, but he would not deny who he was and where he come from.

    He would tell his friend, if she really wanted to know, he just had to throw a warning that it probably would not be the most pleasant of stories.

    "Memories about my past life, of stuff I did and I'm not proud of. I hope you have plenty of time, and I feel I have this need to warn you..."

    "After hearing my story, your perception of me might be affected, and I would have to see our friendship ruined. Though it is your right to know and my responsability to share, who I am...or was.... Do you wish me to carry on?"

    Posted by Talisa on 12-20-2002 04:42 PM:

    "It's probably no different from my past life. You'd be very surprised."

    .::She smiled a bit and motioned for him to carry on::.
