Corporal Jaenna 'Star' Caldwin touched her finger to the green star tattoo  on her left cheek. Her skin was burning up, sweat was beading on her forehead, her heart was racing, her breathing was shallow. Those sea-foam eyes were wide, brimming with salty tears. Jae's other hand rested on the desk, fist clenched, knuckles turning white. The girl felt as though everything was about to fall down on top of her, as if she couldn't stop anything. She was helpless, broken, worthless. She shouldn't be here... She should be with them. Her family. The only family she knew after her care giver, that old Gungan, had been slaughtered by her own biological parents. The family that had taken care of her. The family that had given her the name 'Star' that had she had eventually climbed to the top of, brought them together and gave them the name 'Star Struck'. That's where she should be right now.

"Jae... We need you. Come back, for just a little while. Ku... He needs you too." The image if Takii, the worry evident on his face even through the pixels of the holoimage, pleaded with the raggedly breathing Stormtrooper.

Kulip, also known as 'Ku', or 'Kay', had apparently disappeared over the last few days, no signs of him could be found. None of the gang could find him. Takii had said that even the records of him on the Net had been mostly erased. Which obviously... was a bad sign. It didn't necessarily mean he was dead.

But something bad did happen to him.

"Jae. Please." Takii said. He went to open his mouth again, but was cut off by the sound Jaenna slamming her clenched fist down on the desk.

Her eyes were shut tight.

"I'll be there tomorrow, Tak." She reached towards the button to end the holocall with the hand that was touching her cheek, and pressed the button. The image shut off and Jae was left there, staring at the blank screen that showed only the desktop of her laptop, which was a picture of a tribal star, the emblem of the Star Struck gang.

Without wasting any time, Jae began to send messages via her Laptop to a few select troopers.

MESSAGE BEGIN

I need to head back to Coruscant for a while. My gang, Star Struck, is in trouble. Their active leader has gone missing. He's a very good friend of mine. I have a feeling that our rival gang, another gang of hackers, is behind this.

So, I would like you three to come along to Coruscant with me.

It would mean a lot.

I'm inviting another Squad Leader, too. Saphira from Iron Horse. I have a feeling she could be beneficial to my... well... personal mission back home.

Thank you.

~CPL Jaenna

MESSAGE END
========================

"There. One message sent..." Jaenna sighed and ran a hand through her auburn hair. A sigh rolled out over her pale pink lips as she readied her finger tips at her keyboard once more, trying to think of how to appeal to the SL that she had never really met or spoken to before.

"Ugh..." Another sigh and she finallt began to type.

Look. I know we've never really spoken before, but Havock knows you, and likes you as person. So you must be pretty cool.

I'm heading off to Coruscant to deal with some really bad issues that a large group of my friends are having. I'm taking Kand, Ron, and Havock with me as well. I'm hoping that you agree to tag along as well.

Please. Think it over and contact me with your answer.

MESSAGE END
========================

"There. Now... to wait."

She wasn't going to start packing until she knew that she was going to have some help, or not. Even if they ended up not going with her, she would make the trip herself. She has her own freighter in the hanger after all. Jae was pretty sure that she would to pilot a simple freighter to Coruscant by herself..

A nervous laugh rose from her mouth as she stared at her desktop.

Maybe not.

The girl needed her friends to go with her. She needed the friends that she had made in the ARMY to go with her to help her family on Coruscant.

She needed them.

Corporal Jaenna 'Star' Caldwin sighed once more, and rose from her desk chair. Making her way over to the couch, she thought about Kulip. Her friend. The friend that was like a brother to her. Her first love. Now... He was missing. And it was her job to find out what happened to him.

The Corporal laid out on the couch, and soon drifted off to sleep, her eyes shut tight, her hands behind her head, and her chest tight with fear for her make-shift family.

Havock walked through the halls of the training center on Tadath. Grabbing the tail of her towel, she wiped some sweat off her forehead and threw the towel over her shoulder. Hav had just finished working out in the fitness center and was looking forward to a shower and sleep. Arriving at her bunk, Hav hit the controls and leaned against the wall next to the door as it swooshed up in front of her. Lazily she walked through the door and into her small bunk area.

The small room was decently kept, for Havock. She was doing her best to keep her room neat, but being tidy was never one of her strong suits. Throwing the towel in the direction of the clothes bin, Havock headed over to her closet to get some clothes to change into after her shower.

When she turned around holding a handful of apparel in her arms and she saw her comm blink. Havock frowned, who would be calling at this hour? Waving her arm at the laptop, Hav went to walk out to the fresher to take that shower. She paused at the door, her hand on the controls. Taking a deep breath she closed her eyes and slowly turned her head back to the blinking light on her laptop. Chewing on her lip for a few seconds she stared at the laptop before cursing and walking over to the devise, tossing the clothes in her arms to her bunk.

Havock leaned over the chair, punching the buttons to pull up the message.  Heh, oh it’s from Jae. Her smile faded fast when she read the subject, ‘Help’. Hav’s face dissolved into a frown and she slowly pulled out and sat in the chair as she scrolled through the message.

Reading the message Hav’s eyebrows came together so tightly she had to reach up and rub her temples to prevent a headache from the tension. Jae needed them to help her with a problem on Coruscant. Of course Havock would go, Jae needed her help, that wasn’t even a question in her mind. What was giving her pause was who else was going. Everyone was an SL and Jae was an ASL and then there’s Havock, she was feeling a little intimidated by the group.

Havock slammed her palm into her forehead, stop being an idiot, Hav. It’s Jae. “Right.” She said out loud to no one in particular. Havock jumped up, spinning around as she did so. The movement turned out to be a bit too much for the trooper, as her foot got caught up in the chair almost sending her to the floor if she had not caught herself on her bunk. Smooth, Hav, real smooth. Let’s try to get there in one piece, huh?

Standing she walked over to her bunk pulling out a travel bag. She started zipping back and forth between the bag and her closet, throwing a wide array of clothes and supplies into the duffel.
After zipping up the bag, she grabbed the clothes she had set out to wear after taking a shower. Her eyes looked back to the laptop screen with the message still up on it. Dropping the clothes again she walked over to the laptop and typed a reply to Jae.

Jae,

Got your message. I’m packed and ready to go. Just say the word and I’m ready.

Havock looked over the message again after she hit the send key. Swallowing, she could feel tension just all over, she was worried about her friend. Sighing she got back up and grabbed her clothes for the third time, but this time she actually walked out of her room and down the hall to grab a shower. She wanted to be ready whenever Jae needed to leave.

Once more Saphira Striker could be found working out in the training room. Various weapons were at her disposal as she worked on a sythentic dummy. Practicing her martial art skills with  round houses and flips over the dummy to work on knifing from behind to sever the spinal cord. She had just finished a few more punches when she withdrew her vibrow blade. Sweat beaded down her forhead when a small beeping sound made her head turn to look at the datapad she, like everyone else carry's around. Walking over she picked it up and pressed the button.

Her eyes read it over as she slammed the blade into the table. Whoever would come in here next would have a hard time taking it out.


"Intresting.. Well... If she's asking me for help....I might as well go.."


It wasn't like she had anything else do to at the moment. From what she read, it sounded like it was desprete and from what others knew of Saph.. it was she was handy with blades and her other skills. With a sigh as she walked around the room to cool off she typed  a messege back.

Saph

Messege  End

Sending it the twi'lek ran off for a quick shower and then to her quarters to get ready.
