    Late Night

    Sporting a black tank top, black leather pants, and matching flat-soled boots, Sky sat at one of the round tables in the center of the room and sipped on her blue milk alone. After her raw, romantic intimacy with Jack, she needed something to wet her throat while he still remained asleep. It didn't take much to sneak out but she had a feeling he probably knew she left during his slumber. They were Force bonded after all.

    The milk was so refreshing and just the silence itself of the nearly empty bar was nice. A few plates clacking here and there and light conversation of those who were still awake were all she could hear. Nothing like the hustle and bustle of rowdy bunches from clubs on Nar Shaddaa like she was used to.

    Antony walked into Rama's late that night. Holding his head he then sat randomly at a table not caring who was there. The round table he sat at had someone it in. Looking up at the woman he then blushed. Oh joy! Another attractive female who'll deny him! Much more she was obviously more then ten years his own age. Now that he was 17 anyways.

    Holding his temples he then stuttered, "Sorry...didn't see you...there."

    Cracking his neck the teen Warrior then pulled out a flask and drank from it. The liquor used to burn his throat when he drank it. That seemed to go away after a while. Now it tasted better then before. So, he then heard the voice of reason, his brother Jaden in his head this time. The darker one had taken a break! Finally!

    You know, brother, she might be pretty but, doesn't mean she's a Sith. Just talk to her. You were always the talker. And a charmer. Me...not so much. Jaden said into his brain as he could only hear it.

    "I didn't mean to intrude on your relaxation." Antony said in a polite manner, "Are you new here? Haven't seen you around. I know most of the Sith here or anyone who comes in here regularly who aren't."

      How strange. Someone who would just sit at a table without even looking to see if it was occupied or even asking if they could join them. Nevermind that though, he looked to be troubled by the way he rubbed his temples.

      "No intrusion." She said, rolling a lock of hair behind her right ear with a finger. She crossed one leg over the other, intrigued by him. "Actually I am new here. Sky. Sky Harrison." Extending a hand across the table, Sky welcomed him to shake it with a friendly, harmless smile. "And from the way it sounds, you yourself sound like a regular." Retracting her right hand slowly, she turned the stir stick in the milk as she spoke. "Is...everything alright? Headache?" She asked in reference to his previous action.

        Antony nodded as she said he wasn't intruding. At least he wasn't. If he was he'd probably get fair warning for it, so, at least he wouldn't. Not that it mattered, he had those days. The days where he'd be knocked into a wall or had something thrown at his head here in Rama's. When she introduced herself and shook his hand with a harmless smile he then poured on the charm. Although his head hurt still.

        "I thought so." Antony said with a charming smile, "Antony. Antony Icarus."

        Taking another swig from his flask, the Sith Warrior then wondered who her Master was. Then again he could ask but, he'd save that for now. Not like he wanted to tell her his whole life story right off the bat. When she asked if he was a regular and if he was alright he then nodded with a shrug.

        "Better then usual, but, yes I'm a regular." Antony said, "Headache for sure. But, it'll pass when I drink this."

        He motioned with his eyes towards his flask of liquor, "Can I get you a drink then? Probably get one of my own since my flask here is about dry."

        Oh for frak's sake, boy! Another fascination with a female? The darker voice rang through his mind. Oh for frak's sake! It's back!

          "Umm...sure! Thank you." She said, surprised by his offer of a drink. Was he even old enough to drink? Didn't matter. Antony was seeming like a sweet kid so Sky would give him some time to get to know him more. "A Sonic Servodriver if it isn't too much trouble."

          Deciding to dig into him more, she went first. Her dark eyes scanned the room and then back to Antony. "So surprised to see so many people here up with us. So what's your story?" Her right eyebrow raised, jokingly. "What brings you to Rama's at this hour? Or was it just for the headache?"

            "No sweat." He said with a wink, and that charming grin.

            The service droid came by and he then ordered her drink for her along with the cheapest bottle of rum he could get. As the droid looked at him with a raised eyebrow he then rose in anger. His hazel eyes turned a tint of yellow as he narrowed his eyes at the stupid droid.

            "Did I stutter? Or do you need re-programmed?" Antony said as it then scurried away to get the order, "Thought so."

            He then returned to normal, as he then let the hold he had on the Force go for the moment. As Sky looked around the room, hazel ones looked also. With a shrug, he could agree. There were quite the group of patrons here. All drinking and being merry it seemed.

            When she asked him his story he then raised an eyebrow, "My story?"

            Shaking the thought he then shrugged, "I can't sleep a lot of times. So, I come here to mingle with people and try to drink something that will help. Being a Council member's son I've got my dad looking over my freaking shoulder all day and night."

              Watching his outburst against the droid made her throttle back some. She was Sith herself but she was far relaxed than some she had seen before, though that didn't change the way she looked at her new family. She accepted their anger and distrust of the galaxy and its inhabitants.

              The last thing he said sent a cold shudder down her spine. "Your father is on the Council!?!?" Sky didn't know whether to bow or not in his presence. That was the qualifications of a prince on some worlds, but the Sith were different. She tried to play off her unsettled nerves by back in her chair and crossing her arms. "I can understand that. I'd be a wreck too. You deserve two drinks for that." A soft laugh escaped her. The thought of her own parents entered her own mind and hatred filled her. "At least your father is still around. Mine sold me for drugs with help from my mom. They sold my brother and I into orphanage and I haven't seen em' since."

                  Seeing her shudder he then knew she might have run into him at some point, "You can't mistake him. Tall...masked...kind of a hard a**."

                  When she said he deserved two drinks he then smiled. At least she was nicer then most Sith women he came across. The others wanted to murder him and take the power he had away. Not like Sith didn't need love too, but, Antony was just a normal, yet abnormal teen. All his hormones were active. That much was clear.

                  "Thanks." Antony said with another charming smile, "So, what's a pretty lady like you here joining the Sith for? But, my mother is gone. She left my dad a while back and since then he's been more of an a** then usual."

                  He then raised an eyebrow, "Drugs huh? That's kinda petty, even for someone who's a Sith like me. Whenever you see them are you gonna take it out on them? I would."

                    Sky laughed soft and nervously after Antony's description of his father. "Nope. I've never seen him." Oh yeah, Sky had seen him. Fought him, even. Because of her brave attempt at trying to take him on, she was accepted into the Sith Empire.

                    "A pretty lady, huh? Well aren't you a little charmer." Sky laughed at his attempts and in a way it was actually kind of cute that he saw her as such. Most guys wouldn't even have the audacity to say that even to her at her own age without even saying something repulsive first. "Well Antony, my story is kind of a long one so I'll keep it short for you. Following the selling of my brother and I to orphanage, we grew up there and never even had foster parents. I was eighteen the night of his death and he was seventeen. His birthday was two weeks away and we had plans on nabbing some beer for us to celebrate with but the night we decided to go out for ice cream...." Sky's smile faded. "...he was shot and killed in an alley in the crossfire between two rival gangs. It was in the middle of an arms deal that went south, but my brother died protecting me. He shoved me to safety behind a box and he took four blaster bolts to his chest."

                    Shrugging it off with a sigh, Sky shook her head and looked down at the table. "That night a piece of myself died and I've never been the same. I joined an illegal unit on Nar Shaddaa who were pretty much organized vigilantes and we brought people to justice as armed soldiers by any means necessary without police involvement." Her gaze went back to Antony. "Following that, a few events happened, I joined the Galactic Empire, met my master, Master Sheetai, and he told me that I had the Force within me. I saw that my potential was wasted in the empire so I joined the Sith and embraced the dark side."

                    When the droid returned with the drinks, Sky thanked it with a dip of her head and raised the glass. "Bottoms up." It was like a toast but without touching cups. The alcohol burned her throat but was refreshing at the same time. A nice change of pace from her milk. "If I do see my parents again, my first reaction wouldn't be to kill them. I'd ask them why first before anything else. I need to know why they would do such a thing." Sky changed the subject back to Antony. "Your mother is missing out on what a handsome boy you are. Her loss."

                      Antony then smiled, "Oh trust me, you don't want to. He's sort of a hard a**."

                      When she laughed at his attempts he then figured she was into him. At least a little. As Sky told her story he then took the last swig out of his flask before setting it into his pocket. The teen listened and blared his eyes as she said her brother was killed. That seemed to unsettle her, and, no wonder she was now a Sith. Explained a lot of her background anyways. Then seeing her stare down at the table he then held out a hand.

                      "It's okay, Sky. We all have our reasons for doing what we do. I do because my parents were Sith. I was born from the darkness. Not literally but, in a sense." Antony said with a concerned look.

                      But, hearing that she was the clown's student, he then retracted his hand. Oh great! The clown! He was pathetic in Antony's eyes. Always acting like a two-bit circus act. Antony heard a lot of tales that the guy was serious messed up in the head. More then one occassion the Knight killed people just because he could. Antony was Sith, but, he wasn't THAT screwed up. Apparently she was as twisted as he was. So, that was why he retracted his hand. Not that he didn't like her company he was just unnerved by her choice of teacher.

                      "Ah, the clown, huh? Guys got a lot of screws loose." Antony said although he then formed another charming smirk, "So, I don't see many pretty women like you here you got a boyfriend? Or, you looking for one?"

                      The teen waggled his eyebrows, insinuating that she could be with him. He may be almost ten years younger then her, but, didn't mean he wasn't more mature then most teens. He had to grow up fast when he first arrived. Since then he had. As she held her glass up he then did the same holding up his bottle. Nearly chugging his bottle the teen was used to drinking now. It took a while for him to be drunk. Nearly three-quarters of a bottle was what he needed.

                      "Yeah, I'd wanna hanker a guess why they'd abandon me. I wished my dad would have..." He trailed off then she put the subject back on him, "She is. Your quite the charmer yourself, Sky."

                        His jest about Jack angered her and lingered with her as he spoke even though he gave her a compliment at the end. Rather than smile, she finished off her drink and glared right at Antony. "Actually I do have a boyfriend and even though he isn't in this Temple, we are still connected. A long distance relationship, if you will. I just hope he's still faithful and doesn't have other women sharing his bed." She lied right through her teeth but he didn't need to know she felt anything for Jack. The less people who knew, the better.

                        She went on the defense for her beloved master. "Ya know, people think they have Jack all figured out, but they don't. They try to see through him with their curious eyes but they only see the surface. They think they understand why he does what he does and you do know why? Because they're insecure about themselves and belittling him makes them feel good about themselves. What really is sane and insane? The same as the line between good and evil. It's grey. He kills and decimates people so they can't come back and hurt others anymore and any apprentice of his should be viewed in respect rather than disdain." There was a fire in her voice that was sparked but slowly doused.

                        "Forgive me, Antony. I just dislike it when people talk down about my master. I feel as though they are judging me as well since we are direct reflections of our masters and just like any normal person would, I defend myself." A topic shift was needed again. "So what about you? Any ladies around here catch your eye? Or does one already have it?" She winked at him playfully.

                          Antony blared his eyes and then blinked. She was sure a little fire pistol! The teen then shrugged. Of course she would be taken by someone. Why does he even bother anymore? Shaking his head he completely ignored her then although he appeared like he was listening. Then his headache struck again. As the dark voice in his head pushed against his brain it made his whole head hurt.

                          He then heard it's voice ring through his head although it did more then that. It rang through the entire place like a wave. Although one wouldn't know where it originated. The voice was crafty like that.

                          Kill her! Don't let her talk to you like that! It spoke loudly into his mind.

                          Don't mind him, Antony. He's just jealous I think. Jaden's voice appeared, calming his consciousness down.

                          Antony then took the bottle and took a big ol' swig of it. Then setting it down he then kept hazel eyes focused on her. Trying to keep his brain from ripping apart. Ugh, how he hated that voice in his head! He wanted to rip his own head off and end it all! It was then Sky asked for forgiveness and the teen nodded. He'd hardly said a word otherwise.

                          As she asked about him if he had any ladies in his life he shook his head no, "If I did you really think I'd try to hit on a women like you who's taken? And failing!"

                            Sky motioned to the droid for one more of those drinks for her. This was going to be one of those conversations. "Is that what you called a pass at me?" She joked to lighten him up. "I'm kidding. I just thought you were maybe...complicated with your special someone and looking for another alternative before cutting off the first one. Wouldn't be the first time I've seen that. Happened to me once." She cupped his right hand in hers and spoke to him calmly to bring him at ease.

                            "You didn't fail, Antony. You only tried me because you didn't know. I can't fault you for trying and your attempts were cute as is. Any girl in this place would be lucky to have you and if they didn't feel like that, then they are lying to themselves. Give me about 5 years ago and single and I'd definitely have you around my arm. You're sweet, charming, cute, and you're Sith. You got the power and the looks. All you need now is the money and you'll be the total package." She rubbed the top of his hand with one of her own while the other still held it. "I've got friends your age still on Nar Shaddaa who I helped raise at the orphanage. They'd kill for someone like you. You just say the word and I'll make the call."

                              "Yep. A try." He said as she took his hand he then smiled.

                              At least she had a sense of humor too. Most of the other girls here were clearly having social problems. Antony may be a Sith but he was still a person. Being a Sith didn't mean he forgoes all relationships. He was a teen now. The poor guy wanted to explore why his hormones were this way. Kinda like a science experiment. Or to see how many girls he could hook up with. That was mostly it. He was a guy after all. Antony could try and lie to himself all he wanted.

                              "Thank you, that's a relief." Antony said with a sigh of relief and as she explained that she would hav if she was single in 5 years, "Really?"

                              That cheered him up. All that she said pretty much cheered him up. Taking another drink of his bottle with his left hand he then set it down. Wiping his mouth wth a napkin dispenser on the table he then smiled. He did have money. A trust fund to be exact.

                              "I do have some, in a trust fund." Antony said and to her comment about friends his age on Nar Shaddaa he then grinned raising an eyebrow, "You do huh? I might take you up on that."
