Riebe nodded. "Of course I will speak with him."
"Getting back into the swing of things, eh?" Nom asked her. Riebe turned to look at him.
"What do you mean?" she demanded.
"Well, you've told us a little of your story," he said. "Enough that we know you've helped the Jedi before. Sounds like you're pretty interested in helping again."
"Perhaps," Riebe said thoughtfully. "Or perhaps I simply need something to take my mind off myself."
"What's that supposed to mean?" Tarila laughed.
"To put it very simply, I've had a very long life," Riebe said, "and there are things in my life I'm not proud of. There are also things I wish to forget, things I can never forget. It helps to take the mind off them, even for a little while. Something to do helps with that... not so much of this sitting around and doing nothing."
