Elyon, dressed in a dark green Jedi robe, was already waiting leaning against her ship. When she sensed Zoe and Sasha coming, she straightened up and looked at them.
“Do you have everything? We won’t be able to return, not until we complete the mission.” The young Jedi said as she walked up the ramp to the ship.
“Yes, Master, we are ready for the mission,” Zoe replied, following her to the ship with Sasha.
“All right then,” Elyon smiled as she took the pilot’s seat.
Zoe sits next to her in the co-pilot’s seat as the ship leaves Station and heads for Kiast. It wasn’t long before they flew through the atmosphere and the landscape unfolded in front of them.
“R2, please enter the emergency call coordinates into the navigation computer,” Elyon called back to her droid, who was already on the ship when Zoe and Sasha boarded.
The droid beeped twice in agreement and went to work. He connected to the computer and to the navigation system. After a while, he beeped again to let them know that the coordinates were set.
“Thank you, R2,” Elyon thanked, watching the navigation computer know where to fly.
The landscape beneath them was changing. Forests were replaced by mountains, mountains were replaced by cities, cities by forests to the shores of the oceans. A few minutes later, the droid beeped again because the source of the emergency call was right in front of them.
“I see, R2, thank you.” Elyon answered the droid, scanning the landscape below. In the middle of the woods, there was burnt soil in the shape of a circle on which farmers had set up their fields. The land here will certainly be profitable, because a river flows around the fields.
“Interesting,” the young Jedi sighed.
“What, Master,” Zoe asked, also watching the landscape below.
"What would anyone want here? Village in the middle of nowhere. According to the map, the larger city is a day or two away, ”Elyon told her, looking for a good place to land.
“Maybe they have something that interests someone,” young Zeltron thought aloud.
"Does it matter if we walk a little? I’d like to hide the shuttle from possible air hazards. We don’t want to draw attention to ourselves, ”Elyon said when she found the right place to hide the ship. It was a rock overhang of mountains, which were about 20 kilometers from the village.
"No, Master. Sasha likes to run, ”Zoe told her, winking at her animal friend.
"Good. He’ll have plenty of movement, ”Elyon said as she guided the shuttle to land and maneuvered it under overhang with a deft maneuver so she wouldn’t be able to see much. Then she turned off the engines, got up, and walked over to R2.
"R2, I’m sorry, but this is not the terrain for you. Stay here and guard the shuttle. If anything goes wrong, I need you here, ”the young Jedi told her droid, stroking him. The droid started beeping in protest, but eventually calmed down.
“So, it’s time to go,” Elyon said, pulling her backpack packed for the mission out of storage.
"Yes, Master. We’re right behind you,” Zoe said with Sasha at her side as they followed the young Jedi out of the shuttle.
