Janna gave Stark a tiny knowing nod. She had this. She wasn’t sure what she could or couldn’t do with the ball of light, but she didn’t want to draw unnecessary attention. Gently, she stuck her hand still holding the ball, into her pocket and hoped for the best.

Reaching out, Kingston rested her hand on Orvos’ arm, stopping him. She gestured with her head for them to step over to a quiet corner of the Promenade.

Orvos followed curiously.

Looking up at him, she searched his face intently. Everything was all weird know but she sought that strange moment of connection on the holodeck. “Do you trust me, Orvos?”

~Janna Kingston, ACNS

Orvos paused, keeping eye contact and hoping to sense her current mental state in whatever detail he could perceive. “Of course I do. Why?” he said slowly, obviously curious and anticipating a reply that would reveal much more than what he knew.

Stark went on high alert stepping back slightly to keep the two fo them in the wider perspective of all who were moving in the vicinity. He wanted to be ready if interference came their way.

“Because sometime in the next few minutes, Kivon will show up, abduct me and take me to the Nexus and try to finish whatever was started between you two. I have a way to trap him though,” Janna said. She reached into her pocket and pulled out the ball of light. “I don’t know how this works exactly but a reliable source told it would contain him.”

Bringing this forward

Orvos’s eyes went wide and he quickly put his hand over hers to cover the light. The realization of what may have happened was reeling in his mind. “Why would my former pilot do that? What business would he have with me?”

He shook his head and tried to find a more private corridor.

-Lt. Orvos Legen, CE

Kingston glanced at Stark but simply followed Orvos to more seclusion. “Something about your actions killing someone he loved? He seemed to think I was your wife and that that would be appropriate retribution…”

~Janna Kingston, ACNS

Stark took a position where he could watch all angles. Situations like this were fraught with the possibility of the unexpected and unfortunate. He took mental stock of where all his weapons were hidden. A part of him was wanting to be attacked, a part of him wanted the satisfaction of having a being’s life at his claw tips. Things had been so out of control for so long that he earnestly desired the contest of the dance of death so that he could either emerge in control or not emerge at all. He mentally berated himself for his selfishness, this was about Orvos, and Janna. He stuffed his feelings back to be dealt with at a later time and scanned the byways with murder in his eyes.
