    I picked a bad night to celebrate...

    *Nikka spent a few hours in Rama's setting up a large table with drinks and food for what she would call a celebration, but that night, she just didnt feel she was in much of a mood to celebrate. She sat at the table guzzling down a fifth of JD and picking through a bowl of pretzels, her head resting on her balled up fist. Her sad mood could be felt by all that was there drowing in their own sorrows. Tonight, Nikka could just drown... A message was sent to all in the Empire who wanted to come and congratulate her on her promotion, but it seemed that most people had other plans. Taking another bite of a pretzel, she grabbed one of the many beers from the table and washed it down.*

    :: Sith Master Dara Shadowtide entered Rama's and glanced around, taking in all the force signatures in the room before settling in on one of the Empire's newest Warriors.. her apprentice Nikka DarkStorm. Walking over with a smile, she stopped at the table and looked upon her ::

    *Hearing the voice of her master behind her, she turned and stood, putting the bottle down on the table and bowed in respect to her. Her expression changed immediately from her solemn look to a dark grin, but despite the change, she still had the solemn aura about her.*

    "Of course not, Master Shadowtide. Please sit down. What brings you here tonight?"

    Posted by Dara Shadowtide on 09-06-2002 09:05 PM:

    :: Dara smiled at Nikka and then took a chair at the table. As she sat down, a droid whizzed by and delivered her customary glass of white wine ::

    "Thank you, my apprentice. I just finished up a few things and wanted to mingle with fellow members of the Empire a bit. I don't get to do that as often as I would like to. Plus, we do have a bit to celebrate here tonight, don't we Sith Warrior Nikka?"

    :: She grinned and raised her glass in a toast ::

    "To you, my apprentice, on your well deserved accomplishment. May you continue to serve the Empire loyally as your skills in the Dark Side increase with each ascension you earn."

    Posted by Nikka on 09-06-2002 09:19 PM:

    *The newly promoted Warrior grinned and raised her bottle in a toast as well.*

    "Thank you, my master. May the Dark Side alway serve you well also. I feel I must apologize though, for running out on my promotion ceremony...for obvious reasons, of course."

    Posted by Dara Shadowtide on 09-06-2002 09:24 PM:

    :: She took a sip of her drink in congratulations before responding. Placing her glass on the table, she looked into Nikka's eyes ::

    "Yes, I did notice that there seemed to be something else you needed to attend to with regards to two gentlemen. Would you like to talk about it? Perhaps I can be of assistance in some way.."

    Posted by Talus Invictus on 09-06-2002 09:26 PM:

    As she completed the words "for obvious reasons" Talus entered the room as if on cue.

    Albeit with a bandage wrapped around his wrist because of his wound. He smiled gently at Nikka and bowed his head in deference to Mistress Shadowtide. "

    "Mistress Shadowtide always an honor," he said respectively, then his attention turned towards the only one he was truly here to see. "Hellow Warrior Darkstorm, " as he bowed his head lowly and took her hand kissing it softly. "Congradulations on your promotion, I could think of no one lovelier or more worthy of such a promotion." With those words he took the bottle of JD she had been drowning her sorrows in and replaced it with a glass of water, Talus also took a glass of water, he was already intoxicated by her beauty.

    *Nikka sighed softly and shook her head, still a little bothered by the events that took place.*

    "No, it's alright. I think everything's--"

    *By that time, she saw Talus enter the bar and approach her at the table. She felt a rush of heat flow through her senses as he kissed her hand. Nodding to him, she took the glass of water and drank from it slowly.*

    "Hello, Talus..."

    *She said, grinning like a schoolgirl.*

    :: Dara saw Talus enter and smiled with a nod to him. Watching his interaction with Nikka, the Sith Master wondered if she should leave the two to celebrate privately ::

    "Hello Talus. It is always a pleasure to see one of the Empire's loyal followers. How are you this evening?"

    Posted by Talus Invictus on 09-06-2002 10:36 PM:

    "I am just fine Mistress Shadowtide, even better that I have heard the beautiful sounds of yours and Nikka's voice to go along with your lovely faces." He grinned liked the only boy in home ed. "And yourself, I hope the evening finds you well."

    Talus grabbed another glass of water and started sipping from it. He could drink large libations of liquid and still not quench his thirst.

    Posted by Nikka on 09-07-2002 12:10 AM:

    "I'm...much better now."

    *Nikka smiled, passing on a hint that she feels better bestowing her eyes upon his face. Nikka had been in such a down mood lately, she wondered if something would make her feel better. It was apparent that he does.*

    "I do hope your wrist is better."

    *She took his hand, examining the bandaged wrist a little better, but also thinking her holding it would ease the pain, if he was in any at all.*

    Posted by Dark Lady Zena on 09-07-2002 07:25 AM:

    Zena lumbered into Rama's fitted in her woodland camouflage fatigues, after a laborious day of dodging predators roaming the perimeter, to sharpen her reflexes and survival skills, and tone her muscles. Her battle inured eyes then riveted onto the newly celebrated warrior as a grin flashed over her face.

    "Congratulations on your promotion, Nikka, you deserved it. Hard work pays off in time."

    The Dark mercenary Sith Knight then nodded to Dara and Talus.. .

    "Good evening comrades."

    She then ambled over to take a seat by her compeers.

    "Corellian ale, droid! This night is for a heated celebration!"

    Posted by Nikka on 09-07-2002 09:13 PM:

    *Nikka nodded to her friend and comrade Zena, raising her glass in a toast.*

    "Evening, Zena. I thank you. Congratulations on your promotion as well."

    Posted by Dara Shadowtide on 09-08-2002 12:32 AM:

    :: Dara smiled at Talus's kind words and then turned to Zena as she entered ::

    "Greetings Zena. It is good to see you as well. It is a night of celebrations, not only for fellow comrades but for the Empire as it grows stronger with each ascension."

    Posted by Dark Lady Zena on 09-08-2002 06:04 AM:

    .."Thankyou everyone! Yes indeed, our numbers are growing, and with that, our power will know no bounds!"..

    Posted by Nikka on 09-08-2002 08:03 PM:

    "Hear, hear."

    *Nikka said loudly, but not in a shout as she raised her glass again.*

    Posted by Talus Invictus on 09-09-2002 10:50 PM:

    Talus nodded to Zena as she entered and as she spoke. He knew her words were sincere and her zeal as well, but Talus was a reserved individual and less vocal about allegiances and toasts. Besides he had other things on his mind, the beautiful newly promoted Sith Warrior standing in front of him for one.

    This obsession with you, is driving me mad. Why do I feel so weak and distracted around you. A look of helplessness passed over his face shortly then his normal calm visage took shape again. He took a seat next to the red-haired beauty and observed.

    Posted by Nikka on 09-10-2002 11:36 AM:

    *Nikka turned and noticed the look on Talus' face before it turned to a normal look. She grinned slightly and winked at him, then took another sip of her water. As if she sensed his thoughts, she sat there thinking to herself for a brief moment.*

    I don't know what it is in the way he looks at me, but it's making me go completely insane. And being in his presence captivates me. I do not know what to do anymore.

    *Everything that was going on around her was fading out as she thought this. It was like nothing else ever existed.*

    Posted by Talus Invictus on 09-23-2002 08:43 PM:

    Talus ordered a drink and toasted Nikka once it arrived.

    "To a beautiful woman and a fierce Warrior, congradulations to Nikka Darkstorm newest Warrior of the Sith Empire."

    He took a healthy swig and looked at the others.

    Posted by Dark Lady Zena on 09-26-2002 12:52 PM:

    Zena elevated her goblet following in suit in the toast..She then nodded to Nikka as her signature broad grin spoke her words.

    Posted by Nikka on 10-14-2002 06:53 PM:

    "Thank you again, Talus..."

    Nikka replied with a smirk. She blushed slightly, but then let the heated sensation in her face subside.

    "...and everyone else. My hard work serves me well."
