The next day we dropped out of hyper-space. We were cleared and landed soon on the surface.
I shouted for Merleah to be taken to the med-room as soon as possible and soon a carrier bed came and she was carted away with me jogging behind.
After Merleah fell asleep and was stable I made my way to the War Room but stopped dead in my tracks when I saw Captain Tetch.
Trying not to rethink about our conversation last time, I announced,
"Who is the leading officer here?"
Tetch turned around and instantly grimaced.
"So Faro Danva. She's alive and well I pursume?" he asked, with the least amount of concern.
"She's alive but I'm not quite sure about well. She's just tired," I answered, returning the scowl.
"Well I'm glad she's back in med because she doesn't need to know yet that we are not going after Ahsoka Tano."
His words felt like a slap to the face. I instantly stood up.
"We still have two days left! Even though she's weak, I'll find Tano," I growled at him.
"Impossible Danva. I know you found Kane, but finding Ahsoka is going to be harder. Believe me."
"That's a lie! How can you not see that she is important to this group?" I fired back.
"I have already talked it over with the council. If the Outer Rim wasn't becoming more taken over by the Empire, we would already be out there," he answered and only then did I see how weary he was.
"So that's it then. We are going to leave one of the last Jedis left just because it's "dangerious"?" I asked accusingly.
"Yes, I have confirmed it with Mon Mothma and Admiral Ackbar. They are very sad over this and you must believe me when I say it pains me too," he answered.
I scoffed and turned away so I couldn't see him.
We sat in awkward silence for a bit until he stated,
"We have three warships ready for combat Faro. I thought you might want to know that we are leaving Mon Cala for Dantooine."
I stared at him and sat up to leave and I turned back.
"I'm not going to be the most furious about this, Leah will and you're gonna be sorry."
I don't know what transpired in his mind but Tetch exclaimed,
"Fine! You both can go. But if you are followed by any Imperial presence or captured, you're gonna be sorry," he finished with venom in his voice.
Should I be grateful or even more scared?
