Five decks later, the doors opened to an empty corridor. On the opposite side, and about six meters down the corridor, stood the wide open doors to the bridge.
They can't be this stupid, Alema Rar thought as she approached the bridge. Reaching out with the Force, she counted about twenty or twenty-five beings inside, fighting to stay calm through various stages of fear. Aware of the holocams monitoring her, the Jedi slid along the wall and peeked into the bridge.
The first thing that caught her eye was a lone slaver standing about six meters away facing her. As she jerked back, expecting a blaster bolt, she realized that none of the bridge crew had even drawn their weapons.
Carefully, she peeked back into the bridge. The slaver was still there, looking right at her. The rest of the bridge crew was attending their stations, nervously glancing towards her. Reaching out with the Force, she could sense no immediate danger from any of them. Cautiously, Alema Rar stepped out and onto the bridge.
"Hello, Jedi Alema Rar," Nyk greeted her.
The aura of calm competence was very different from the nervous slaver who had been trying to flirt with her the other night. "Nyk," she answered, trying to keep watch on the entire bridge crew at once. The Jedi held her lightsaber in front of her in a reverse grip, pointing down, with her right hand, which was her strong arm. With her left hand she held her blaster on Nyk.
"I promise that no one on this bridge is going to hurt you, but there are some other slavers on board that might try." She sensed truth in both statements. "Because of them, we really need to secure the blast doors, okay?"
The truth again. She nodded her consent, still trying to figure out what was going on. Nyk gestured towards a Bothan at a port side station and Alema Rar heard the blast doors slamming shut behind her.
Back to the mission, she reminded herself. "Every body step out into the middle of the bridge where I can see them," she announced to the crew.
None of the crew budged. About half looked towards Nyk, and five or six towards a male Twi'lek in what was probably the captain's chair. The rest just watched Alema Rar, and did nothing.
"Please don't do anything hasty, Jedi Alema Rar," Nyk said quickly, keeping his hands held out from his sides. "We mean you no harm. No one else has to die today."
There was incredible danger on the ship, but none of it nearby. Still, with one Jedi against several hundred slavers, she had to move fast, at everything.
"I want to offer you a deal, Jedi Alema Rar," Nyk said calmly.
Several responses came to her mind, mostly involving her blaster and/or lightsaber. "I am going to send a distress call to the nearest GA base," she said, adding the power of the Force to the statement. "Then I am going to make sure this ship, and the slaves you people have taken, stay here until a GA ship arrives to rescue them. They only question is whether or not all of you will be alive to stand trial for your crimes," the Jedi told them.
Now several of the bridge crew were worried. She even sensed a crack in Nyk's calm demeanor.
"Of course, Jedi Alema," Nyk replied, "We would be happy to allow you to send a comm call." That was good. Alema Rar liked it when the bad guys agreed with what she said. "We would also be happy to release all the slaves that are currently on board, for a price. However, there is a little something you need to know first," he said, with a noticeable change in his demeanor.
"Really, like what?" the Jedi asked, keeping her Force awareness pushed out, anticipating danger.
"A few dozen of us have been planning for your, or another Jedi's, return since Spraikela. There are five hundred and eighty-four slaves on board. All of them are in the aft cargo bay, with nothing but a forcefield between them and empty space." Nyk paused and gestured towards a couple of holocams in the corners before continuing. "We are being watched. If you attempt to take over the ship, then the forcefield will be shut down." He let his words hang in the air. There was no need to go into detail.
Carbon Frakking Flush, Alema Rar thought. There was no way to stop them, either. "If any of the slaves die, then you die, understand," she replied, thrusting her blaster a little more towards the slaver.
"I hope that no one, else, has to die, Jedi Alema Rar. It is just a safety measure to ensure your cooperation."
Twenty minds were too many for her to control at once. Maybe if she could just take over Nyk's mind, or the captain's. . .?
Nyk seemed to almost be reading her thoughts. "Like I said, we have been preparing for a Jedi. If anyone on the bridge is observed acting strangely, then any one of several of my compatriots around the ship can, and will, shut down the forcefield," he said as he watched her carefully.
"Look, not all of us are bad guys. We were just looking to make some hard credits and got caught up with Schliebak and Darb." That didn't seemed to be entirely true, but before Alema Rar could call him out on it, he continued. "The slaves will live, and be freed, IF you cooperate with us, understand?"
It was a no-win situation. She had come here primarily to kill Schliebak. Freeing the slaves was only a secondary objective. Even if she killed every last one of the slavers, the people she was trying to help would be killed because of her.
"Now, Jedi Alema Rar, lay down your weapons and we can discuss payment for the slaves?" Nyk instructed her firmly. "There is a very short time limit on this, otherwise my compatriots will carry out their plan, and escape in the ship's assault shuttles."
None of this made any sense. Slavers are ultra-protective of their slaves, which are no good to them dead. "First I make my comm call, then we talk," Alema Rar offered.
Nyk frowned, and said, "I'm very sorry, Jedi Alema Rar. You will have to agree to my demands, then make the comm call. Otherwise, people might get the wrong impression about what is going on here."
He seemed very sincere on this point. Conscious of the slaves' lives hanging in the balance, Alema Rar replied, "Alright, spit it out then."
Nyk winked up at one of the holocams before speaking. "Several governments are looking for mercenaries, and we are looking to make a career change. We will release the slaves, a hundred at a time, at a price of twelve hundred credits each, in exchange for the Galactic Alliance's promise not to make any more attacks on this ship or its crew, as long as we don't take any more slaves, of course." He took a breath before continuing. "The first hundred can be released at a place of our mutual agreement, as soon as the funds are deposited in our accounts."
The young slaver believed everything that he was saying. Alema Rar knew of several groups, and governments, that would pay for a slave's freedom. However, not all of them could deliver over a hundred thousand credits immediately. Only one person would turn over that kind of money for her as fast as she needed it.
Still, this whole thing could be some sort of elaborate trap. Nyk was definitely leaving something out. Perhaps she could convince him to alter the deal.
"Okay, I'll let you all go," Alema Rar replied. "As long as you release all the slaves immediately, you can go free."
The Jedi felt amusement from him. "It's non-negotiable. We'll kill 'em all and head to the Outer Rim. The GA will never find us," Nyk replied earnestly. "There is one little catch to the whole thing, though. . ."
She could feel how serious he was about killing the slaves if necessary.
Alema Rar hesitated a moment before replying. "What?"
"To ensure the good treatment of the slaves while awaiting their release, you must remain on board," he replied.
Since she wouldn't trust a bunch of slavers to keep their word anyway, that was easy to agree to. "Done," the Jedi replied, with a nod of her head.
The anticipation spiked just before he replied, "As my willing and eager slave."
The Twi'lek's first reaction was to shoot him. But there was the lives of the slaves in the cargo bay to consider. She calmed herself to hear the Force better. There was no doubt just what kind of slave he meant. There was no duplicity from the bridge crew either. Alema Rar felt a slight quiver from her damp pussy.
"If any of the slaves die, then you die. No matter what," the Jedi replied earnestly.
"You've mentioned that several times. My compatriots are growing impatient. Will you be my slave, or are a lot of people going to die?"
There were no other options. "How long," Alema Rar asked, her choice made.
"A month," Nyk replied, holding back a triumphant smile. "As for the other slaves, as soon as a hundred and twenty thousand GA credits are deposited in our account, the first hundred will be released at a location of our choosing. Another hundred will be released each week after that, pending payment, of course."
Alema Rar lowered her blaster and lightsaber. "It will take longer than a month to release them all like that," she pointed out.
Nyk shrugged his shoulders. "I know. After a month you will be free to leave. However, if you choose to stay until all the other slaves have been released, we may be able to work out a suitable arrangement," he added with a thinly disguised leer.
The Jedi had no doubt she would be staying an extra few weeks. Resigned to her fate, she replied, "Fine, but I have a couple of questions first," as she shut down her lightsaber.
After a quick glance at the holocams, Nyk responded. "Okay, but first, I really think we need to get you into some restraints, or someone might think you are performing some sort of Jedi mind trick or something."
A bridge crewman approached Alema Rar from the side, barely keeping his fear in check. A pair of binders were displayed in his hand. The Twi'lek holstered her blaster and meekly allowed him to secure her hands behind her back. Once that was done, he unbuckled her gun belt, and removed it from around her waist.
Alema Rar was busy watching Nyk watch her as he walked to her. He reached behind her and she let him slide her lightsaber out of her gloved hand. Once he took a step away and stuck the de-activated weapon in a cargo pocket, he allowed his new slave to ask her questions.
The Jedi glanced at the smooth hilt protruding from his pocket, then asked, "Where is Darb's ship, and the slaves on board?"
Nyk frowned before responding. "They took off for hyperspace as soon as they heard that we had a Jedi on board. We have no idea where they are, Alema Rar."
The Jedi had little hope for the slaves on Darb's ship, but she had to ask. "Are there any other slaves that were in Schliebak's control? I want them made part of our deal."
The slaver shook his head as he guided her towards the comm station. "Not that we know of. And if Captain Tol'Ven doesn't know about them, then there aren't any," Nyk stated definitely.
He gave his new slave a moment to collect her thoughts. "Are you ready to make your comm call now, slave?" Nyk asked her.
"Yes Master," Alema Rar replied with only the barest traces of hesitation.
The first call Alema Rar made was to the Jedi Temple, to report on her mission―not that they had known anything past the most basic of details to start with. Master Katarn didn't seem to be too upset that she had been out of touch for so long, or that she would be staying on board for another month. She didn't ask him about buying the slaves' freedom, since it would lead to far to many questions. The Twi'lek had someone else in mind for that. Only after the comm officer had closed the link did Alema Rar realize that the skimpy silk top she was wearing was visible on the holoscreen.
It took a few minutes to get through to her next callee, Queen Mother of the Hapes Consortium and Jedi Knight, Tenel Ka Djo.
Tenel Ka seemed happy enough to hear from her, although she cooled somewhat when Alema Rar told her the price Nyk was demanding for the slaves. The Twi'lek made sure not to mention the details of her own involvement, and hoped that Tenel Ka wouldn't ask any awkward questions about it. After learning how Nyk was planning on releasing the slaves, Tenel Ka surprised Alema Rar by asking to speak to him directly.
If Nyk thought it was usual for a slaver to talk to the Queen Mother of the Hapes Consortium, he hid it well. He kept his composure as Tenel Ka attempted to haggle over the price she would pay for the slaves. After a few minutes, and a few threats by Nyk to space the lot of them, they settled on eight hundred credits each for the first hundred, with a hundred credits added to each additional shipment.
The two immediately begin discussing locations for the exchange, leaving Alema Rar out all together. She decided not to point it out to Nyk, since he was still in the spirit of the deal they had made.
Once Nyk and Tenel Ka had concluded their business, Alema Rar was a little hurt that Tenel Ka shut down the link without even saying goodbye.
Before she had time to think about it, Nyk held up a durasteel collar, identical to the one she had been wearing, except that instead of the number two, this one featured a double zero. Knowing what was expected of her, Alema Rar lifted her lekku away from her neck, as he closed the collar around around her throat.
"This is a prototype slave collar. It's a bit more powerful than what you're used to, not that the old one did much good," he trailed off as he said the last part. "It has a few more features as well, but I'll surprise you with those later," he added with a chuckle.
Alema Rar shot him a suspicious look as he led her out into the corridor. He simply smiled, and raised an eyebrow, as if daring her to comment on it. Whether it was the Force, or just her getting back to her slave instinct, the Twi'lek remained silent.
Suddenly, something else caught her attention. Death! Not the nearly thirty she had killed, but at least a hundred, probably more, spread out all over the ship.
Nyk seemed to pick up on her mood change as well. "Remember how I told you that we needed to secure the blast doors on the bridge?" he asked his slave. After an absentminded nod from her, he continued. "Some of the slavers on board were a little too loyal to the Hutt, so we've had to do some organizational downsizing."
After passing several bodies, Alema Rar wondered exactly where they were going. Still, she felt an almost overwhelming compulsion from the Force not to speak. Almost. With a deep breath, the Jedi pushed aside the compulsion and asked, "Ma―," and was shocked from the collar hard enough to collapse. Only Nyk's strong grip kept her from falling to the deck.
"Surprise!" he said, with a condescending smile on his face. Alema Rar looked up at him with pure betrayal.
"Remember your place slave, and the lives that depend on you good behavior," Nyk told her icily.
After Alema Rar composed herself, Nyk hit a button on the remote in his pocket. She could sense the moment it was safe for her to talk. "As long as you don't scream or yell or any of that shik, you can talk, slave," Nyk stated.
The Twi'lek bit back her first response, then said, "What the frakk was that, Mas―," and was cut off again by another, stronger shock.
"I don't appreciate being cursed at either, slave. If you want to be my slave, then you'll have to learn some respect," Nyk said to the dazed Twi'lek. "Now, can you behave yourself, or do I need to keep you quiet awhile longer?" he asked.
Controlling her anger with the Force, Alema Rar looked up at him and nodded her head. When Nyk gave her permission to talk again, she managed to ask him where they were going without getting shocked a third time.
Her new Master seemed to think about that a moment. An image of a room with restraints lining the walls came to his mind.
As she climbed back to her feet, she asked politely, "Master, may I please speak with the other slaves, to let them know that they will be freed?"
Suspicion flashed across his face. "Please Master, I promise I won't try anything. I just want to let them know what is going on," she implored.
Alema Rar could tell that he still wasn't convinced. "You have my word as a Jedi, Master," she promised him.
"Fine," he replied. "But I promise you, they'll space all of us before we let you loose again," he added.
By the time Nyk had led his slave to the cargo hold, Alema Rar had explained to him exactly what she wanted to say, and gotten his permission. Alema Rar thought it was best to keep secret the fact that she was a Jedi. Nyk didn't quite understand why, but relented to his slave's wishes on that point. Just before entering the cargo hold, they both agreed that she would be more credible if Nyk released the binders from her wrists.
It took most of the slaves a few minutes to digest that they were going to be freed. Still fearful of the twenty or so slavers watching over them with the controls for their collars, one of the slaves cautiously asked which of them would be freed first.
The Twi'lek exchanged a glance with Nyk. That thought hadn't even entered her mind. An extra five or six weeks would be a big deal to some of the slaves.
Alema Rar leaned in close to Nyk and was about to ask if they could just be released in the order they were captured, but instead, she followed the Force and suggested to the former slaver that they let the slaves vote on who would be released each week.
The slaves loved the idea. The slavers were happy as long as they were paid. Soon after the slaves started the voting, Alema Rar realized that she wasn't wearing her chastity belt anymore. She was, in fact, the only female in the cargo hold that wasn't.
It had been seven long days since she'd had an orgasm. Alema Rar needed something in her now-accessible pussy, and fast!
Before she did anything rash, Alema Rar glanced around the cargo hold. Nyk wasn't really paying her any attention―he was watching the slaves organize their vote. None of the other slavers seemed to be watching her too closely, either. Closing her eyes, the horny Twi'lek surreptitiously slipped a couple of fingers into her moist snatch.
Suddenly, Alema Rar felt a hand close around her slim wrist. Her eyes popped open and there stood Nyk, with a smug grin on his face.
"Slaves don't touch themselves without their Master's permission, Alema Rar," Nyk told her sternly.
"I'm sorry Master Nyk," she apologized, more embarrassed that he'd snuck up on her than that he'd caught her playing with herself.
"I'll bet," he replied with a derisive snort. "Time to get you back into some shackles, anyway," he added, producing the wristcuffs she had been wearing earlier.
As much as she enjoyed being restrained, Alema Rar really wanted to get a little finger time in. With a slight Force pressure on his mind, she obediently held her hands out in front of her, hoping that he would cuff her in front. Nyk stared hard at her for a second, then cuffed her right arm, and pulled it behind her back. Giving up, the Jedi slid her left arm behind her and allowed her Master to cuff it as well.
Less than half an hour later, they had a list of one hundred slaves that would be freed within twelve hours, when they rendezvoused with the Hapan ship. Most of the rest of the slaves seemed happy enough with the vote, but Alema Rar could sense that a group of about fifty or so were dissatisfied with the results.
