School? School!? He'd better be joking. Maybe didn't mind working and earning money so that she could live her life and have some fun, but there was no way she was going back to school, that was for sure .Had Marcello been telling the truth about handing her over to the Republic? He did seem the type, grumpy and likely to do that sort of thing, but why did he rescue her if that was the case? She took in the Jedi Master, and gave him a small smile and a little wave. Why did they call call her 'child', she thought with a sigh.


"Uh... hi." Maybe smiled to the new Jedi Master. "I'm Maybe..."

The application process took a little longer than anticipated. There were forms to fill out and details to take down, and Maybe was positively bored out of her skull by the end of it, but it was worth it if the reward was accommodation. Eventually, she found her way back out in to the corridor, where she looked up and down for Marcello, fairly confident he'd at least recognise her by the clicking of her heels on the floor if he was anywhere near (it seemed Jedi Masters didn't often wear high heels, so she stood out).

Marcello was at the far end of the corridor conversing with another Jedi when Maybe finished with her meeting.  The distinctive sound of her heels clicking against the marble floor of this particular corridor drew his attention.  For a moment, the girl seemed older than she actually was, but the Jedi Master shook it off easily.  Excusing himself from his present conversation, he approached Maybe.  "Good, you're still here.  That means things went well.  Come with me and we'll see to getting your accommodations setup and moving your things from your old place."  Without another word, Marcello began walking once more.

Following Day

Marcello was standing outside of Maybe's door by 0500 the next morning.  Ordinarily, Jedi Masters did not get directly involved in the activities of those assigned to the Support Corps.  However, since his associate had been so kind as to offer his familiar face to Maybe as her mentor, it now became his duty to see to it she was integrated into the Order successfully.  Dressed in his Jedi Robes, Marcello knocked twice, loudly.  "Maybe.  Meet me in the dining facility in thirty minutes.  There is much to do."  Thirty minutes was a pretty generous time, and she certainly was not in boot camp, so there was no real reason to rush her.

Turning, Marcello departed down the hall to get something to eat himself.

Five AM? FIVE AM!? What kind of time was five AM!? Maybe's eyes slowly fluttered open to the pounding from Marcello, and she groaned. Really? This was ridiculous! And this bed was one of the most comfortable she'd slept in for years! And he really wanted her to get up? It was inhuman! Rather than successfully reply in anything resembling real language, she simply threw her pillow at the door, and decided to curl back up to sleep. She could nap a little longer, right?


...


It was closer to quarter past six when, breathless as ever, Maybe rushed in to the dining hall, the loud clicking of her hurried heels announcing her once again, stumbling and banging in to a table as she did so.
"OW! OW!" She let out in frustration, half limping to Marcello's side, and then giving him a shy smile. "Uh.... sorry...." She said nervously. She was at least fully dressed, even having found time to do her make-up apparently, which said even more about her...
