Ice and Dirt // open
« on: 06/08/16 12:41:53 »
Solitude.

That was what she had been after. Still, she had not expected to find it on the moon of Oba Diah, somewhere in the Outer Rim. Her escapes had always been more distant, located and hidden somewhere in the Unknown Territories, on planets that had never even received a name. The terrain was not to her liking. The moon was a desert, reminding her too often of her birthplace.

And what did this solitude provide her, away from any and all that up until several days ago, were denied the means of finding her.

Nothing.

And so it was months after her disappearance that she no longer concealed herself within the Force. About her ship's beacons, there was little she could do. Once her pilot had violently disabled any means of locating or contacting the yacht, she had snuffed his life out, and lacking the knowledge herself, there was nothing she could do or wanted to do in order to repair it.

But change was coming. The Sith Mistress knew it. The ice that decorated the little house she had built with the Force was beginning to melt. Her tarot cards, once used when she felt merely felt like putting on a show, had become something she increasingly used. No, to say change was coming, would be an understatement.

Soon, she knew, would be the tipping point from which she could no longer return.

And for the first time in her extended life, Shery deWinter truly feared something.

The swirl of crimson in the dark chamber ceased abruptly as Cameron stopped mid-stroke in his twice-daily routine of training.  The Force often spoke to him, from whispers to outright screams.  Across the expanse, there were lives that mattered not at all and lives that were the only thing he truly cared for outside of his own power and control.

For the last...  Well, the Sith Lord could not even remember precisely how long it had been now.  How long had it been since he heard the comforting giggle of his youngest child or even so much as felt her presence brushing against his own?  Similarly, the child's mother, whom Cameron was fond of beyond a measure he'd ever been able to admit to her directly, was also gone.  If the Sith Lord had drawn any form of contentment from the situation, it had been the self-made illusion that they were together, unharmed.

Various delights had run through Cameron's tastes in the interim.  Most of said delights had been mere distractions, a way to delay the inevitable drift of his mind to the two most treasured items he'd ever had and subsequently lost.  So why the rush of emotions now?  Simple.  The sensation which he'd longed for until he'd forced himself to ignore said longing...had returned.  From across the far reaches of the galaxy, he could feel her, them.

Sheathing his weapon, Cameron stood motionless for a moment, the beating of his heart increasing steadily with his breathing.  The quickening of his pace was not one of excitement but of anger, unbridled rage that threatened to consume the entirety of his mountain retreat on Corstris.  In that moment he realized it was excitement...for what was more exciting to the Sith Lord than the knowledge he would soon exact his irritation on the principal cause.

In a flash, Cameron was gone from the training room.  The aura of the dark side around him became almost visible as light seemed to bend away from his body.  At present, it had no place in the Sith Lord's sweeping presence.

Icy tentacles moved about the entrance to the little room within the house. The Sith Mistress touched them, allowing the coldness to send shivers down her spine. She had not ordered them or crafted them. No one had. And while she had a few speculations as to how they formed, she had little hesitation as to how to approach them. Balls of mud and earth rose from the floor, spinning around the woman at blurring speeds before she sent them forward, smashing the tendrils and sending them to the floor.

Her emerald eyes blinked as she realized it would not suffice. Even on the ground, they resumed to move, like glassy slugs, though it did not appear they meant to cause intentional harm. Still, it would not do. With a sigh, she focused her efforts back to the ground. Goodbye, my little ones, she thought as the ground swallowed the whole, sending the deeper and deeper below. How much exactly, she could not assess. Her focus was slipping, and she found her mind wandering to other places.

The most immediate of them being the room next door, where her daughter had just woken up.

It was hard to disappear when you were a mother. No matter what she went through, Elora was simply too young to simply leave behind. She had not expected to actually want the child, not after the circumstances of her being conceived, not after she had thought she had done bringing children and raising them in this 'verse. Yet her little bundle of darkness would never feel those distant memories, not upon her flesh and not upon her soul. It was a thing, considering both of the child's bloodlines, she simply did. Perhaps out of luck, perhaps out of inheritance - no one could actually ignore or not want them around.

Picking the child up in her arms, she planted a kiss on her temple.

"You shall be safe again very soon," she whispered, before humming a good morning song, and opening dry food that had been stored on her yacht for months such as these.

Three Days Later

The Eclipse-class Star Dreadnaught Praetor reverted to real space along with its numerous escorts near the center of the Oba Diah system.  Standing on the bridge of the vessel with his hands clasped behind his back, the Sith Lord listened to numerous reports filtering in from Shadow Force officers that crewed the former Imperial vessel.

"Captain.  Several contacts, varied design and composition."

"Disposition?"

"Unknown - appears to be mostly merchants."

Cameron knew of the former uses of the Oba Diah system.  It had been a stronghold for a former criminal syndicate that basically dealt in spice from the mines of Kessel.  He had no idea who operated out of this system now, but he knew it didn't matter in the slightest.  "Captain."

The Captain looked up from the tactical display.  "Yes, Mi'lord?"

"Destroy them."

"My Lord...?"

"All of them."

The command deck seemed to fall completely silent for a but a moment before the Captain and his officers began barking orders to various stations.  Overhead, the sounds of klaxons commanding the crew to general quarters and pilots to their ships began sounding.  With a completely impassive expression, as if nothing was registering on his mind, the Sith Lord turned and swiftly exited the command deck.  In a matter of minutes, he stepped out of his personal lift onto the polished deck of his personal hangar and made his way to his Sith Infiltrator.

As the Infiltrator darted out into space, Cameron could feel the presences of Shery and Elora stronger than ever.  The sensation that brushed against this child was nurturing, loving.  The sensation that brushed against Shery was a bit less...refined, containing the sum quantities of all of his emotions for her.  Irritation, confusion, more irritation, concern, and an undeniably firm undercurrent of simple love.  To be sure, the Sith Lord was not purposefully conveying the last bit, it was merely something he could not turn off that would always exist...had always existed.

He just didn't even know it himself until recently.

She'd almost dropped her own child from her hands. The Sith Mistress gasped, placing Elora gently on the ground where she could be surrounded by her toys, and leaned against the wall, forehead pressed to it to try to cool the fever that shot through her.

That... had never happened before. For hours, nearly all of the existence had been silenced. She'd tried to reach out with the Force, to understand what was happening, yet there was nothing. For those few hours, she truly was all alone with her daughter on a forgotten moon. For a few hours, the only thing that had kept her from utter panic was her training. The stress had been there, all too strong. But she had remained calmed and collected in appearance, even when there was no one to keep an appearance for.

And now it all came rushing in, blowing through her body like a heatwave, and she could see the Great Web in front of her eyes, almost tangible enough to touch with her hands.

She took a few deep breaths, demanding her mind to focus before the corners of her mouth turned into a little wicked smile.

"Elora," she said, turning around to the child, "your father will be here soon."

Whatever heart she had left in her, it melted as the toddler understood the words and screamed with joy, slapping the ground.

Shery went to her bedroom. She had cleared her wardrobe on the yacht long ago, transferring her clothes to where they were more attainable. There were... A great many things that had to be discussed with Cameron. Some of them, she knew, she should have discussed with him prior to her most recent vanishing. And some... Well. She ignored the ache that came along with it. Theirs had been a special bond that only a few could ever understand, and she longed to have him near her, even in the current circumstances. And more than all... No, nevermind.

Both mother and daughter were cleaned and properly dressed before Cameron's arrival; Shery in a green gown, and Elora in a pale pink.

The Infiltrator cut through the relative thin atmosphere of Oba Diah's moon at a velocity that bordered on unsafe.  In less than twenty minutes, the sleek vessel was racing over the plains towards where Cameron had sensed the pair of presences.  During the journey from Corstris, he'd wondered if perhaps this was some sort of...trap.  An enemy from long ago...or a family member from all too recently playing tricks on his mind.  Had that been the result, the Sith Lord was fully prepared to destroy the entire system and subjugate any that managed to live under his will.  In fact.  He might well still do such.  However, Oba Diah held no real interest for Cameron, save the two of the people currently occupying the system. 

Following a quick landing sequence, the loading ramp to the Infiltrator lowered amid soft hissing from the steam actuators in the landing struts.  Swiftly, the figure of Cameron Centurion emerged, wearing a simple black and silver overcoat over his tattooed, exposed upper body.  Silver-green eyes cut across the distance and it forced a pause in the Sith Lord's progression.  For the moment, his gaze was leveled solely on Shery.  A number of emotions swirled inside of him, but he stubbornly choked them back and shifted his attention to his pride and joy.

The smile that spread across the Sith Lord's lips could not have been described as anything short of pure, unadulterated joy.  Cameron made a motion like he was about to break out in a run, but in a flash he was directly in front of the pair, seizing the little girl into his arms after a slight toss into the air.  The sounds of her giggles filling the air did what...nobody had seen from him in ages.  A single tear rolled down Cameron's cheek as he held Elora close to him.

Eventually, an almost impassive gaze raised to Shery's own emerald eyes.  Still...there was obviously a sense of relief at seeing her safe, despite his frustrations.  "Seriously?"

I am fate.

They'd stood outside for a mere few moments before Cameron arrived. Elora was absolutely excited, squirming around in her mother's arms, trying to get out of the before her father even showed up. And when he did...

Shery herself almost fell to the ground, child in arms and all. She had not expected the rush of emotions to run through her, not again, not after such a short moment. But she held firmly, smiling as she made no move to keep him from holding their child.

She gazed at the two of them, barely able to form thoughts. It was  cold fog, despite the warmth everywhere else, broken only when she noticied the tear. Knowing better than to comment on it, she remained calm and collected until he finally turned his attention to her.

"Yes," she answered with simplicity, her voice still as deep and rich as it always had been, taking her slightly by surprise after several months of mostly speaking with a toddler.

Wasting little time, Shery closed the gap between her and Cameron, landing her lips on his.

Other things that weren't her or Elora could wait.

Cameron really wanted to give Shery a snarky, verbal retort.  Even when she placed her lips to his own, he'd halfway considered pulling away, but it was a fleeting thought.  His attempts to force himself to be more angry than relieved ebbed away swiftly as he allowed his free arm to encircle the Sith Mistress' waist.  Pulling her body tightly against his own, he allowed the embrace to linger until he slowly broke the kiss. 

Raising his head, the Sith Lord shifted the toddler in his other arm slightly, still holding Shery's gaze.  "Well.  You both seem healthy, at least."  It was the only statement Cameron could think to make.  No, it wasn't the only statement he could think to make, it was merely the most neutral one.  Long had it been since the Sith Lord had even desired to commit himself solely to another.  In fact...it hadn't ever happened.  Crystal had been a union of convenience and necessity.  Even when Shery had been betrothed to one of Cameron's best friends, he'd...well...harbored a fondness for her.

"Shery I..."  The Sith Lord paused.  He'd gotten better at dealing with emotions since the birth of Elora, but he'd managed to focus all he had on her.  In truth it had been Shery well before Elora.  "...I mean I'm not saying I was like devastated without you, but I would greatly prefer if you didn't do this again."  Even as he said the words, he knew that he could not change Shery, and he wouldn't even if he could.  Exhaling heavily, Cameron managed a thin smile.  "Fuck it.  Shery, I love you.  Completely and only."

A slight whimper from the toddler in his arms caused the smile on his lips to broaden as he looked at Elora.  "Oh excuse me.  Both of you."  The Sith Lord deposited a soft kiss on his daughter's forehead.

The warmth of his exposed body sent shivers through the woman. She moaned into mouth, one arm on his shoulder, the other against his chest. The familiarity of him, his sent, his very presence... She bathed in it,  until he broke the kiss, her legs only slightly weak beneath her.

Healthy... She made no reply to that. What could she say? More than was possible at that very moment. Regardless, it could wait. For now she nearly clung to him, wanting to enjoy and be surrounded by him.

He continued to speak, and she laughed when he put his preference into words. She'd always appreciate the sentiment, though not even for her own children, once they were old enough, had she been capable of it, and it required quite a lot to lessen the amount and severity of the times she did.

Yet when the last bit he spoke...

Shery froze in Cameron's arms, her eyes wide. Not in a million lifetimes would she have thought he would convey it - so simply, so directly. She was not a woman of tears, and at that specific moment, she regretted that. A little bit. Whatever one wanted to call their relationship - it had been long, and steady, and far beyond the initial steps of pure and simply lust, nor was it out of necessity due to their shared offspring.

"Cameron..." she managed to say his name, her voice just above a whisper.

Finding herself in one of those truly rare occasions during which no words would rise to her lips, she leaned forward again, pressing her lips to his shoulder, embracing the free side of his body as tightly as she could.

The dam broke. All that had happened during the previous couple of months rushed back to the surface of her memory. Her suspicions, her fears, her everything. She shuddered, closing her eyes as she forced it all down and deeply inhaled Cameron's scent, building her energies for what was to come.

"We need to talk."

It was the softness of her voice when she spoke his name.  In that precise moment, Cameron was almost certain that whatever was to follow would be...well...not the response he'd imagined.  Then again, the Sith Lord did pride himself in having no expectations out of life or people.  It was easier that way, but it didn't mean he couldn't be honest about his own personal desires, opinions.

As Shery tightened her grip on his body, Cameron allowed a long exhale to work its way out of his system.  The words 'We need to talk' were the worst to hear in any relationship.  Still, in the end of the day, Cameron knew that he and Shery were connected beyond much more than some ancestral interference or simple co-parenting.  Life was cruel to have only revealed the reality after so many decades of proximity without truly being together.

"Well.  Tell me what's on your mind, then."  Silver-green eyes gazed out over the landscape as Cameron's lips rest gently on Shery's forehead for a blissfully exaggerated moment.

She made no reply at first when he answered. Her statement had been a cruel one and at horrible timing, she knew. But there were things... Things he did not know, could not have known. And before she could lay her heart bare to him as he had for her, she had to make sure he did know them. And give him the chance to take some of what he'd said back.

She let herself get lost in the touch of his lips against her forehead before letting a murmur out, needing to call on whatever strength she had left to form actual words this time.

"I will once Elora is asleep," she answered, "but she still has some to go before nap time."

At last, she broke their embrace, turning around to face the house she'd built. Unlike the castles, mansions, and penthouses she'd lived in for the majority of her life, this one was... Well, different. For one, there was nothing grand about it. It was a little shack-like house, built mostly out of mud. Yet parts of the mud were covered in ice, frozen as though in time, not dripping despite the desert heat. The appeared at random, like spots on a Dalmatian, with no noticeable pattern to them.

Taking Cameron's hand, she led them inside, which looked much the same, with the exception of a few earth-made seats, Elora's crib which she dragged with her to every corner of universe, and a few doors that led to specific rooms. In the corner of the main entrance hall lay a small table with the Sith Mistress' card laid bare, and a few of Elora's toys were scattered around the area as well.

"It's not much," she admitted before Cameron could say anything about the state of the house. She almost added that it held Elora safe, but... There was nothing to keep her safe from. Not on this moon, "take your time with Elora, she's missed you. I'll need my own rest before we... speak."

Only once the words were out of her mouth did she realize how wrongly they could be interpreted. Turning back to Cameron, she gave him a reassuring smile, and kissed him again. "I love you, Cameron," she whispered into his hear once the kiss broke, and for a moment, stumbled, leaning against him. She truly needed that rest now. And perhaps, now that she could do so without setting her own wards up, it would help her more than the previous few rests she'd had.

Cameron was...almost eerily silent through the remainder of the exchange outside the home that Shery had constructed for herself and their daughter.  He could sense the weariness in the Sith Mistress, and even as they stepped inside, he found himself silently cursing his own initial reaction to her presence when he'd been on Corstris still.  It could not have been any easy task...caring for herself and Elora all alone these months.  In fact if Cameron was still upset about anything, it was for being left in the dark.  They'd both just...disappeared but not in the way he normally felt death through the Force.

The Corstris native allowed Shery's departing kiss to linger as long as she desired.  While he did not approve of the definitively ominous nature of her statements and actions, he could sense well enough that she certainly did need the rest.  "No rush, Shery.  I'll be here when you're ready."

As the Sith Mistress departed his presence, Cameron returned his attention to Elora.  A communicator somewhere in his pocket began to beep steadily.  The disturbance forced a perturbed look onto the Sith Lord's face as he retrieved the device and crushed it in the palm of his hand.  The palpable aura of death washing over this particular system courtesy of his forces was all the awareness Cameron needed into their...progress.

Dreams. How she loathed them during times such as these. The Sith Mistress lay in her bed, the blankets wrapped tightly around her, and while she was indeed asleep, there was no rest to be found. A bystander would never recognize the images that ran in her mind as any form of wrong. It had started as always, with the Great Web. Yet unlike most of the time (though more and more often in recent months), the web expanded. She could see it now, all the connections formed on it moving apart, the sense of the web cold and distant, and moving ever so far away.

There was no way to tell the time based on the amount of light coming in through the window.  She had chose a spot for herself and Elora that at all times seemed like slightly just before sundown. It had made sense at the time. Now it seemed to completely not matter.

Slowly, Shery rose out of her bed. She was still wearing the gown she'd put on once she knew Cameron would arrive. She checked the time, noting that it had been three to four hours. If Cameron hadn't put Elora in bed by now, it was high time. Splashing some icy cold water on her face, the Sith Mistress departed the little room, walking quietly as to not potentially disturb whatever Cameron and Elora were in the middle of, her presence against masked within the Force.

Cameron and Elora had indeed been busy reacquainting themselves.  As was the case when a parent was separated from their young offspring for extended periods of time, the Sith Lord more or less catered to the young girl's every whim.  Both he and Shery were fortunate that Elora had yet to develop any truly terrible habits.

However, by the time Shery had awoken both father and daughter were completely passed out from exhaustion on the floor.  Cameron hadn't slept very much during the journey from Corstris and Elora...well...she was still a child, after all.  It was undoubtedly an amusing sight, Elora's tiny frame nestled into the crook of Cameron's left arm against his conversely large frame.

Her lips formed into a smile as her gaze landed upon Cameron and Elora, deep asleep on the floor. Such moments were fleeting, and although up until several months ago, both she and Cameron had put effort into spending as much time as they could afford, they were severely too few in between.

Silently, she sat herself down next to them, and gently removed the sleeping babe from her father's arms. Elora stirred for a moment, but otherwise resumed her sleep. Shery's instinct to move her to her crib by use of the Force nearly settled itself when she stopped herself mid-motion. With a sigh, she rose to her feet in a smooth motion, and walked instead.

Cameron didn't move an inch as Shery gingerly pulled Elora from his grasp.  The steady rise and fall of his chest accompanied the soft rhythm of even breathing for perhaps a good few seconds after Shery had departed the room to place Elora back into her crib.  Elora's crib had been...an interesting specimen since before the child was even born.  In many ways it seemed to have a mind and personality all its own, interacting rather consistently with the child it kept safe.

However, it was the shifting of presences that eventually pulled the Sith Lord from his slumber.  As his eyelids shot upward, Cameron bolted upright, momentarily wondering if it had all been a dream.  The notion was quickly dismissed as the familiar presences touched his now-conscious mind.  Exhaling softly, the Corstris native came to his feet and quietly padded in Shery and Elora's direction.  The home was small, so it took but a moment.  Leaning against the wall, Cameron folded his arms across his chest as he allowed his silver-green gaze to fall on Shery once more.  He recalled the ominous nature of their conversation just before she departed to get some rest, but it didn't weigh heavily on his mind at the moment.

No for now there was just...the intense resurfacing of desires he'd thought he had buried.

She didn't need the Force to know he followed. His mere presence, even without her looking, was more than enough for her to know that he was no longer laying asleep on the floor. Shery stood a few moments by the crib, her eyes closed, her back turned to Cameron. His resurfacing desires were not concealed. Rarely were they from one another. Her body reacted to them, answering with the very same call and she softly gasped.

Turning around, the desire burned upon her face. What it was she'd wanted to talk about could most definitely wait just a little bit longer. With a smile, she walked to him, her hips swaying from side to side beneath the gown she still wore. Within a few breaths she had already pressed her body against him, her hands running along the exposed skin of his body, wanting and needing more than what it currently offered.

No words were needed as they left the room, and no time would be wasted on making it to her private bedroom.

The hours that passed were almost not enough for Cameron.  While he hadn't exactly been chaste in his time apart from Shery, there was no one that approached invoking the same level of desire as he had for her.  It was as if his mind, body, and soul had been starved of nourishment for too long...now all they wanted was to be satisfied to the point of almost being too much.

By now Cameron's breathing had begun to stabilize, but adrenaline still flooded his body as he re-emerged from what Shery had been using as a modest refresher.  Silver-green eyes found the form of the mother of his child, and he quickly returned to the sheets, pulling her firmly into his grasp.  Following yet another deep, passionate kiss that threatened to stoke the embers of desire once more, Cameron exhaled heavily.  It was an action of satisfaction and contentment, but there was also a layer of...apprehension.

"So what's going on, Shery?"  It was his nature...quick to address whatever the threat or problem was.  He wasn't exactly one to delay the inevitable for too long.

I am fate.
