    Time Stands Still (This is open...)


    *Nikka sat by the window late that evening, staring out at the dark, night sky. She shivered. A tingling coldness was felt on her shoulders almost as if she were being embraced or held. A draft was felt over her head and then, the sensation was gone in less than a second. Nikka would feel that sensation many times throughout the day and night and had a hunch on what it was, but never really wanted to know. She always had this belief that something of the unknown had followed her in her travels throughout the universe.

    Or was it someone...? She didn't have any reason to fear the being, whatever it was, but sometimes it would make her shudder inside. Perhaps the past had always been there to haunt her....

    Nikka stood from her chair and grabbed a warm blanket that was draped over the bed as she still felt a residual effect from the coldness that enveloped her. She sat back down and continued to stare out the window, lost in thoughts of her newfound love. Nikka knew that she was ready for a new life with a new love--a new love that made her heart stand race and make time stand still. Time stood still every time she looked into his eyes, but she knew that reprecussions could occur from finding love within the Empire walls. Although many had their own to care about, Nikka felt that many would criticize her for feeling such a soft emotion. She didn't care, though.

    Let them.

    She thought, with a daunty smirk crossing over her lips. Everyone had the right to fall in love, Light or Dark Side of the Force...atleast in her mind.*

    ********

    *A few moments passed while she continued to watch the skies and how the glistening stars would dance among the blanket of darkness. Anytime she would even glance up at the clear night sky, it would muse her at how the darkness can always overcome the light. Even in daylight, the darkened skies have prevailed. Standing from her seat, she decided that a stroll under the darkness would be in order. She took the cloak from her bed and wrapped it around her shoulders and stepped out the door, making her way down the HQ corridor.*

    "Why hello there Miss Darkstorm. How are you tonight ?"

    Lina's words spoke suddenly in the dark, as she smiled silently. Her ice blue eyes shimmered a bit as she took her glance towards Nikka.

    *Nikka suddenly turned as she heard a voice from behind her. She nearly sprang at the person until she saw it was Lina, a member of the Empire.*

    "Oh, Lina. Hello. Sorry I wasn't expecting somebody out this time of the night. How are you?"


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 08-05-2002 10:53 AM:

    "Heh ... I'm alive, breathing .. killing."

    Lina smiled quietly again, her blue eyes shimmering every few seconds. Her dark red hair covering half of her face.

    "How 'bout you ?"





    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Nikka Darkstorm on 08-11-2002 09:15 PM:

    *She smiled darkly while adjusting the robe around more tightly around her shoulders.*

    "As well as could be expected, I suppose. I was just on my way outside. It's such a beautiful night."


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 08-19-2002 11:25 AM:

    "Ah, well .. maybe I can join you."


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    *SHe motioned toward the corridor and half smiled.*

    "Sounds okay to me. Shall we?"


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 08-25-2002 10:36 AM:

    Lina nodded, not really wishing to speak for a certain moment. Misery was taking its tone on her again, but she didn't wish to talk about it.

    "Umm .. so, what's new with you Nik ?"

    She tried to smile as much as it was hard to do so..


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    *Nikka shrugged as the two redheads began on their way down the long, dark corridors of the headquarters.*

    "Eh, the usual. Training and trying to focus on what to come. You?"

    *She felt it was a dumb answer, but then again, Nikka had not been herself lately.*


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 09-01-2002 10:18 AM:

    She nodded, and gave a small yawn.

    "Nothing ... rather miserable lately .. for stupid reasons too, heh."

    Lina chuckled quietly, and then dropped her gaze to the floor. She then canted her head a bit.

    "You don't sound like yourself tonight .. something else going on, hon ?"

    Her blue eyes shimmered as she spoke.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Nikka on 09-05-2002 10:30 PM:

    "Eh, not really, but then again, a lot has happened lately."

    *She said smiling somewhat, but a solemn look crossed her face as she spoke.*


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 09-07-2002 11:21 AM:

    "Like .. ?" She asked, her eyebrow furrowed a bit.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Nikka on 09-10-2002 04:19 PM:

    "Eh, I don't really want to talk about it. Too boring."

    *She chuckled.*


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 09-13-2002 03:57 PM:

    "Mhmm .. sure it is."

    Lina laughed, and looked off, her mind drifting on a thought of something .. or someone.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Nikka on 09-16-2002 08:36 PM:

    *She chuckled slightly then noticed something was on Lina's mind as well.*

    "You seem rather preoccupied yourself. Anything going on?"


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 09-21-2002 11:45 AM:

    Lina laughed heartilly, a bit of blush appeared on the rims of her cheeks.

    "Umm ... I'm just into a certain someone, tis all. Aren't you with someone .. ? That someone being ... oh, a shot in the dark ... Talus ?"

    She furrowed a brow, grinning a bit.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Nikka on 09-21-2002 01:26 PM:

    *Nikka's eyebrows raised slightly.*

    "Ahh, so you know about that."

    *She grinned.*


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 09-22-2002 03:46 PM:

    "Heh, of course !"

    She chuckled, and patted Nikka on the back, lowering her voice a bit, and trying not to giggle.

    "So .. what's he like ?"


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Nikka on 10-12-2002 10:30 PM:

    She sighed and began to think. It's what had been on her mind since this whole thing started..

    "Well... he's great...but-" Nikka bit her lip before continuing. "...I am wondering if I am moving to fast..."

    She had other things to say, but decided not to right now.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 10-13-2002 05:33 PM:

    "What makes you say that hon ?"

    She tilted her head a bit in concern.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Nikka on 10-14-2002 07:36 PM:

    "Eh, it's probably nothing."

    She just shrugged, thinking it was coming from losing important people in her life. With that, she changed the subject.

    "So, how's life here at the Empire treating you?"


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 10-15-2002 05:35 PM:

    "Alright, I guess ..."

    Lina shrugged and let out a sigh of boredom. She loved fighting and training, but when she was free of those things, there was really nothing to do. She couldn't really get drunk like she usually did and run around the streets naked ..


    "What about you ?"


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Nikka Darkstorm on 10-22-2002 03:06 AM:

    "Going quite well, actually. Mostly training and sparring, but that's about it."

    Nikka just shrugged as well. She was craving excitement and adventure. Being confined within the Empire's walls sometimes made her feel too isolated. Nikka found a way to improvise though, going to the Hideaway.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Lina Capulet on 10-22-2002 08:53 PM:

    Lina laughed slightly.

    "We sound like two princesses stuck in a castle."


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Posted by Nikka Darkstorm on 10-30-2002 10:43 AM:

    Nikka let a stifled laugh escape her throat.

    "Dark princesses."


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "Wish we could at least do something .. so boring."

    Lina huffed some.
