AU Week: Child Ibani First Entrance to Milliways

Ibani shivers against one of the walls of Milliways, her body wracked with fever and hunger both. She hadn't meant to end up here, didn't know this was a place that existed, but it's shown up at just the right time.

She's somewhere between seven and ten, clothed in fabric with far too many holes in it, and wearing a slave shock collar around her neck. Her bones stand out too sharply against her skin and her eyes are fever bright and darting around the room.

She knows she must have food, must have fuel to fight the sickness attacking her body. Unconsciously, the Force reacts to her desires, resulting in a kind of fitful grasping like a drowning person clawing onto whatever they can to stay afloat.

Maybe, maybe if she gets close enough to one of the tables she can steal some food without anyone noticing. Yes, yes that's a good plan.

Cassian's arm is bandaged and he's at a table with his phone and planning his next step. Ibani catches his attention because he always notices children and this one looks awful.

When she's close to his table, he pushes the plate of chilaquiles closer to her, if she needs to steal to feel safe then he'll help her do that. He doesn't want to scare her.

He's concerned but he remembers being little and hiding to stay safe from the coyotes and the police.

The fork is moved over to her and he says quietly, "You can eat up here with me or I can put it on a chair. I won't let anyone know you're here."

[personal profile] childofrebellion 2017-08-12 12:11 am (UTC)(link)
"I've already had some and I can get more. I won't starve, I promise,"

Carefully he moves the plate under the table to rest on a chair that's across from him. Cassian keeps his voice steady and calming and only winces slightly when his hurt arm bumps the table.

[personal profile] childofrebellion 2017-08-12 12:21 am (UTC)(link)
If the fork's too hard to use, there are tortilla chips as part of the recipe, its a messier way to eat it but might be simpler. When she notices his pain, he doesn't answer for a moment, he's had this happen before and it always worries him, what else might someone feel?

He sips his drink as he thinks about it, they worked for Ecorp so they weren't doing anything good but he was also stealing information, "Not very badly and yes, they did."

iprotectyou: Baze smiling the tiniest bit (why hello there)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-08-11 11:53 pm (UTC)(link)
Someone has been watching this girl.

Someone not much older than she is.

The large, ten-year-old boy can't feel the Force, but he can see that she's starved and frantic and probably sick. A quick conversation with Bar nets him two bowls of crushed-grain porridge with vegetables and roasted meat. He stands from his stool, straightening his red acolyte robes, and carts the two earthenware bowls of food over to her.

"Hi. I'm Baze. I have some food for you. What's your name?"
iprotectyou: Baze smiling the tiniest bit (why hello there)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-08-12 12:09 am (UTC)(link)
Baze's heart twists in his chest as he reads the brand, though it doesn't occur to him that she might be a slave. He tries to keep his sorrow off his face, though schooling his features is not a skill he has or will ever master.

"Because you look hungry, and the Masters say it's wrong not to help people who need it if you're in a position to do so," he answers, and turns slightly away from her to walk to a table. He sets the food down, and then crosses to the other side, putting the heavy wood between them. "It's good to meet you, Ibani."
iprotectyou: Baze looking off to the side, wrinkling his nose (how about no)

[personal profile] iprotectyou 2017-08-12 12:19 am (UTC)(link)
"You're a slave?" Baze says, his eyes wide. "That's terrible!"

Oh, sure, Baze knows slaves exist, but until now they've been largely theoretical. He had no idea people could treat each other as cruelly as this girl has been treated.

He starts making inroads on his food, realizing that if he doesn't eat, she might not eat either.

"I'm an acolyte at the Temple of the Kyber. I'm going to be a Guardian someday!"

[personal profile] lionlike_tabby 2017-08-12 12:31 am (UTC)(link)
There is an older woman in dark robes at a table, mostly engrossed in a book... and thus not paying much attention* to the large bowl of chips she was served a few minutes ago.

They smell very good, but they're very hot.




*For a given value of 'not very much attention' - which, given that she's an authority figure in a school containing the Weasley twins..
lionlike_tabby: (Older - Considering - Snarky - Righthand)

[personal profile] lionlike_tabby 2017-08-12 01:05 am (UTC)(link)
She gets an unexpectedly kind look from the otherwise rather stern face behind the book: she'll have to get up an awful lot earlier if she wants to surprise someone from the Hogwarts faculty.

"Did they burn your tongue as well?" she asks, voice very mild.
lionlike_tabby: (Older - Considering - Snarky - Righthand)

[personal profile] lionlike_tabby 2017-08-12 01:50 am (UTC)(link)
The only problem with the far less clipped tones she's currently using is that it does make her accent sound rather thicker than it might otherwise.

"There'll be plenty more where they came from, I'm sure," she says, lightly, looking Ibani over now that making eye contact doesn't seem likely to scare her off. The child... well, she's reminding McGonagall forcibly of Berlin in 1945, a time and place she's always done her level best not to be reminded of.

And as for the collar - well. Were Ibani a legilimens, she'd be hearing words that McGonagall learnt from soldiers, mostly in the same year.

"I can heal your tongue, if you'd like. And your fingers, for that matter."

Rebel General Bodhi Rook is just coming out of the kitchen with a tray of rich bantha meat pies. He sets them down, spotting the child out of the corner of his eye.

He remembers that look. Not at bad as she has it but starvation all the same. He wraps the pie in a napkin and sits it on a table near her, not yet looking at her so as not to scare her. Let her think she's stealing it. Then she need not fear he expects something from her.

He does the same with a bottle of water and another napkin bundle of dried fruit cookies.

[personal profile] imthepilot 2017-08-12 03:02 am (UTC)(link)
Bodhi finishes what he's doing before sitting down, still half turned away as much to hide his metal arm. He doesn't want to scare her. "Are you feeling better?"
