Nykon Graves made sure that his long time friend, Rep Gordon was comfortable strapped into the medical pod before heading back to the cockpit of the ship.
Will and Truger were already there, Will looked lost in thought. Truger radiated contentment with a hint of worry for Jaydah.
The Saber's Hilt hangar doors were open awaiting the shuttle, as McFly brought the shuttle in for a landing, Will pushed off the wall and made his way to the back hatchway. Nykon looked at Truger who said "Would you go with him Nykon? I can make sure Rep's taken care of. But Will is going to need some help. With Rep down for now, you're the highest ranked Jedi aboard the ship."
Nykon's eyes widened, "Surely you're joking?"
"There are other Masters certainly, but no one with as much experience as you or Rep.
"But I've never lead Jedi before... Nykon began.
"And you still won't have. At least you won't for long. Rep will be up and on his feet before we know it. And the other Masters on board will aid you if you need it. Truger smiled despite himself, he could sense that Nykon had no desire to have this responsibility thrust upon his shoulders.
"Fine, then." Nykon said a smile of his own crossing his face, "My first act is a field promotion, your my new aide Truger.
"Fair enough, now go help Will, he still seems pretty shook up from the surface. He's already recovering from a mission gone bad. I'm worried for him.
Nykon's interest peaked, "Is that why he was all.. Nykon gestured with his hand "Back there on the planet?
I suspect so, Will's never spoken of it. I know he witnessed horrors of some sort. He's been more withdrawn since that day, but he's not told me much from that mission. But then I've not pried either."
"Hmm I'm not the prying type myself, but if Will is hurting in some way we must address it at some point. It may be more serious then we think." With that Nykon turned and followed the way Will had taken towards the landing ramp.
-Bring on your thousands, one at a time or all in a rush. I don't give a damn. None shall pass.
-To become a Jedi, it is not the Force one must learn to control but oneself.
