Jedi Temple, Coruscant
Perdante delightedly shook Meta's hand, although when she did, she looked perplexed. Metal again...only metal. If there had been a visible thought bubble over her head, like in political cartoons, it would have read, "?!?!?!!?!"
However, she hid this, or tried to hide it, from Meta. "I don't know how Juhani is going to react to this plan," she forewarned the creature, "especially with all the stress and pain she's going through right now. However, if we mention that this is going to help us track down Jolee Bindo's killer, she might relent."
I hope she'll relent, thought the former Sith Initiate with a deep breath!
