      Through the Wire (Desiree)


      0 Not allowed!
      Neo had now become a Jedi. It had been more then a month...maybe...since he'd seen Desiree. Though time had slipped away from him before then and Neo didn't keep up with time. Venturing to Drifter's he'd gotten the reconstruction surgery and now he looked nothing like Jack. Well, save for the red eyes and green hair. That was the only thing noticeable. The permanent grin was gone. Now his face looked rather normal which he felt more at peace. Then a week or two after the surgery he'd ventured by accident to Munto Codru. There he met a woman who was a Sith. Hearing what she had known of them made him turn his back on that place. He'd turned his back on that path of his template. Neo wished to do more with the abilities that he could learn. Not use them for chaos, but instead balance and order. Right the wrongs that Jack committed and be a better person then him. True, he was more or less a teenager in an adult body, but, Neo was his own person. His own entity. The clone hadn't still thanked Desiree properly for helping him out.

      Sitting in his quarters he then looked over everything he'd bought. His clothes were put away neatly in the closet. Other things were set into a drawer and anything else was put on night tables and a desk. Smiling the new Padawan then pulled a green t-shirt over his head before stumbling to put on black pants before he actually hit the floor. Maybe his balance was off today. No matter he then stood up and looked around wondering if anyone else saw it. Laughing out loud to himself he then shook his head. Of course no one else saw it. It was only Neo in his room. Chuckling he then put on clean white socks and the boots he'd bought on Drifter's Paradise. The clone then tied them up and pulled on a black vest which covered his arms and the tattoo that was etched on his forearm. With that Neo exited his room. Looking over himself outside his room and saw his reflection in a window pane which he then slicked back his green hair. Making sure it was situated where he wanted it to be.

      The clone Padawan then started heading to the kitchen. Figured he could use something to eat before he headed outside. Though the cold didn't bother him. Again, something he'd inherited from Jack. A tolerance to pain and the like. Neo didn't care. It was just another talent he had that he could use to better himself and the galaxy as a whole. He could more or less laugh in the face of a Sith who tried to hurt him. They wouldn't expect that. Unless they knew the Sith Lord and his unusual personality. Still, Neo was his own person. So he kept walking and nodded to other Padawans that he seen on the way. As Neo kept walking his footsteps could be heard across the marble floor. A soft smile on his face as he walked the clone then kept his red eyes straight ahead on the path to the kitchen. Was he even near it or in the right direction? He got lost a few times the previous day.

      "Hmmm....am I going the right way?" Neo said out loud.

      "No idea, I still get lost and I've been a Jedi for a while," came an amused voice from behind Neo, a voice that could belong to only one person.

      Time was never all that important to Desiree. A day, a week, a month, they all passed in a blink of an eye and the blonde didn't have a clue what day it was half the time. There was always another place to visit, another person to meet or another close encounter for her to take part in. Such was her life and one that she wouldn't trade for anything. No doubt she would soon be off again to parts unknown but for now, the Padawan was on the frigid Jedi home world again, much to her annoyance. They had still not fixed the heating for the Padawan quarters and that was starting to drive her nuts, along with the fact that the Temple was fairly quiet these days. Isolation was something that she couldn't handle that well, she needed constant companionship, it kept her going. A social animal indeed.

      Approaching the figure, Desiree looked up at Neo and rose her eyebrows, just about recognising him, her jaw dropping a little in surprise at the change in his appearance,

      "Neo? Is that you?"

      Neo then saw Desiree and smiled. She hadn't changed a bit since he saw her. Though it didn't surprise him. Much had changed about him. Finally got some new clothes and the change in his face was what probably surprised Desiree the most. No longer did he look exactly like the clown Sith Lord. Now Neo looked like what he wanted to. That permanent grin removed and his face looked normal. Well, the red eyes were a giveaway that he shared traits of the clown. That and his tolerance to pain and cold. Wasn't a bad thing. Not that he paid much attention to that at all. He noted the heater problem through the Padawan halls and it didn't bother him in the least. Eventually it'd be fixed and he figured that someone was probably on top of that already. Though looking at Desiree he then opened his arms out for a hug.

      "In the flesh." Neo said chuckling, "Got new clothes finally. And a face to match."

      The clone chuckled again. Save for the tattoo still on his arm, everything else about him was different. His personality was a bit different. Neo felt more peaceful with his existence then he had when Desiree first met him. More social then he was also. Not totally social like Desiree, but, he was making progress more or less. There was still much to learn in his life and he was ready for it. Since he'd by accident went to the Sith home planet he realized that their path wasn't for him. In truth he wanted to be better then his template. Spread peace and balance then to spread chaos and death. Life was precious to him and he was accepting his life as it was. With that, Neo came here to the Jedi and told them what he wanted to be. They let him join them and he said that he'd do great things with the gift that he had.

      "So I see," Desiree answered cheerfully, a bright smile crossing her face.

      Almost jumping in to his arms, the blonde happily hugged her friend, pleased that he had managed to find his way to the Jedi. He'd told her that he needed time to explore the galaxy and she'd agreed with that whole heartedly. Becoming a Jedi was a massive decision after all and she was slightly surprised that he had come back so soon. It only felt like yesterday that they had last met and remembering their last encounter brought her nothing but pleasure. She was curious as to where he had travelled too in their time apart, although judging from his new look, she could make a well educated guess. She had after all, given him the idea of travelling to Drifters in the first place. A location where she would have to visit again soon as she always had a great time on the station.

      "I take it that took my advice then about where to go," she continued after a few moments, still in his arms, not caring about who was watching. She didn't think there was anyone among the Jedi who hadn't seen her in this kind of position before.

      Neo wrapped his arms around Desiree spinning her about as they hugged. It was good to see a familiar face again and in the time they'd been apart he did go to Drifter's Paradise. Something that she'd suggested and he took and when he'd left that was the first place he went to. After his surgery was over he was wrapped in bandages for a week or so. Didn't matter because Neo still went out here and there while his face healed. Not a single stitch line or any sort of marks that indicated any surgery done to his face. That was surprising to him. Medical science was remarkable to Neo. Something he'd maybe look into in his time off from training with his Master.

      As the two embraced he neither cared if anyone saw him and Desiree like this. They were both free spirited people and if it made them happy to hug like this as friends or whatnot, then those who'd judge could kiss his behind! Which he figured Desiree would say the same thing. After their intimate encounter before he'd left Neo had a notion that she wasn't wanting anything serious and neither did he. They just enjoyed the moment which brought both of them pleasure in ways and calmed the clone down to a degree. His hormones were out of control in that state being that he'd just experienced what they were exactly. Since then he'd learned to keep things like that under control. Neo was learning things as he went and there wasn't anything wrong with that. All he had to do was experience what life was about.

      "I did take your advice." Neo said as he hugged her tightly, "Good thing too. Learned a few things along the way and after I had some work done played Sabac and won some credits. Who knew I had a knack for it?"

      "A gambler, huh? We'll have to play a few hands one day," the blonde replied with a chuckle, "I used to play quite a lot before I became a Jedi. My father owns a casino back on Nar Shaddaa and I grew up around the tables."

      Yes, that was her life was before becoming a Jedi. Full of gambling, dancing and carefree se.......relationships. She wasn't ashamed of it and in truth, it had helped her out a great deal during her time among the Order. Desiree had never had to fight or exchange angry words because she could understand where those she met were coming from. The blonde didn't judge and tried to do what she could for whoever she met, ally or not, it made little difference to her. She had friends among the Sith and certainly didn't think of them as enemies. They just followed a different path, one that she could never follow, the darkness just didn't lie within her. Her cheerful shield was just too strong for those kind of emotions to take hold of her. Anger and fear were a part of everyone of course, she just didn't have any reason for them to come to the surface.

      Eventually the hug ended and the two broke apart. She could feel a sense of calm within him that had been missing before, which brought nothing but joy to her heart.

      "Made any new friends?" she then asked, curious as to how he had got on with other during his journey.

      Neo chuckled, "Some day we should play a few hands."

      Once they broke apart after the hug he then smiled at her. Truth be told he had finally accepted his life now. Before he was just scared, nervous and wasn't handling things quite well. He had to thank Desiree for bringing him out of that at least some when he'd first met her. Thankful for the kindness and care she showed the clone. Neo was entirely grateful of his existence and if not for Desiree saying that she was a Jedi he'd have never known anything of them. Other then what he'd read and seen on holo vids. It was informative but not as much as hearing one's own opinion and all of them. Which had taken him to Munto Codru. An accident that he'd arrived there but nonetheless it was a adventure to him. Though Neo would have rather not been there at all. Still, he learned something there too. Learned a bit about the Sith from what someone explained to him. In truth that's what made him join the Jedi. Hearing tales of his template and all also convinced him. Convinced him that he should be better then what Jack was...not follow the same path he did.

      When Desiree asked if he'd made any new friends he then chuckled and nodded, "A few maybe. One is a card player on Drifter's. Said that I was pretty good for just playing for the first time. I'd watched from afar on how everything went. Then figured I'd do it myself."

      He then put out his arm as he was walking to the kitchen before he saw Desiree. The clone hadn't eaten when he got up and he thought maybe Desiree would like something as well. Which was why he headed that way. Or at least he thought he was heading that way. Nevertheless he'd make it to the kitchen some way or another. Not that he was in such a huge rush. Neo was enjoying the company of course. Would have been more awkward to him if he hadn't known anyone before stepping into the Jedi halls. Though he would have warmed up eventually to someone. Would have just taken time.

      "I was heading to the kitchen. If you want something I'll get you anything you want." Neo said winking at her, "The least I could do for all the kindness you showed me."

      "How do you know that they serve what I want?" Desiree joked, a grin crossing her face as she turned her blue eyed gaze towards his new features.

      Taking his offered arm, the blonde happily went along with him as they headed for the kitchen. She didn't go there much as the tavern was a far more lively place but the food was certainly better within the Temple. Tom might of been great with drinks but his food tasted like it was a year out of date. The stories she'd heard from patrons about his culinary skills had given her nightmares and she'd never touch his food with a barge pole. She'd never say that to him though, he always kept a few bottles back for her, something that had earned him her lifelong admiration. If there was one problem with the Temple besides the cold, it was the lack of alcohol.

      "Did you end up running in to any of Jack's mates?" she then asked, her blue eyed gaze looking up at him.

      Neo then laughed and looked at her, "You might be right on that. I'm sure they don't have anything you'd like. Maybe we should head to the Tavern instead?"

      He then laughed again before she took his arm and they walked towards the kitchen. The new Padawan had noticed that she kept looking at his face but brushed it off figuring that she had noticed that the permanent grin and all had disappeared from his face. Though in truth to him it was a good thing because now he could look more like he saw himself and less like the Sith Lord who's DNA he was created from. Just because he came from the same blood or whatnot as Jack didn't mean he had to become him. Which was why Neo had the surgery done. So that he could look more like he saw himself and less like Jack. So that no one would confuse them outright. Sure, Neo had the same green hair and the same red eyes. But personality wise they were completely different.

      "See something on my face that you like?" Neo said with a wink.

      As they headed down another corridor he then looked up at the ceiling. It was quite nice to see such architecture in this place and he wasn't no expert of course but the design was quite something. Then looking ahead as the two walked he then saw Padawans and the like stroll by the two which he then politely nodded to each as they passed by. Then looking down at Desiree as she asked if he'd run into anyone of Jack's mates. Pondering for a moment he then shook his head.

      "Well, not anyone Jack has you know...but...I did see someone who he knew. Though she kinda interrogated me...and I told her where Jack was. I think she might be going to rescue him." Neo said then slightly laughed, "Then again...how awkward would that be for him? A Sith Lord needing rescued by someone lower then him...isn't that what the Sith would call pathetic?"

      "It's just nice to be actually able to see your face without that stupid grin plastered all over it," she replied with a chuckle, "It made you look like a puppet or something."

      Desiree listened as he spoke about his encounter with the Sith, head tilted to the side. She wasn't surprised that they had acted in such a way. The Sith were pretty predictable and almost always went for the aggressive approach which she found to be a little depressing. Mind you, the Empire were depressing by nature after all, relying on fear and anger and all of that stuff. It was just so self destructive and made not only the Sith but all those that they met become depressed as well. She was so glad that she had managed to help Neo avoid going down that path and hoped that he would be able to keep himself from following it. Sure, she understood that everyone had their own path but that didn't mean she wouldn't try to keep folks on the light path if she could.

      "I'm sure he'll throw the mother of all tantrums when he figures out what's happened," she added, "All I would say to that Sith trying to save him is good luck because she'll need it when he wakes up. No doubt he'll end up ripping the place apart and she might get caught up in it too if she's not careful. Sith tend to just destroy everything when angered. So unattractive...."

      Neo then chuckled, "Or a clown. Which is why I'm sure people thought I was Jack. No offense to him...his face creeps me out and I'm a clone of him."

      He then shuddered at that thinking of Jack's face and what it looked like now. True he'd been to Munto Codru by accident but eventually he found that he had a better purpose after leaving there. He would indeed make something of himself even if he was a clone of the Sith Lord. Neo wasn't wanting to make the galaxy a worse place since Jack had already started doing that long before he came along. In truth, Neo found that he might right the wrong that Jack did and would still do. Even if it would take him the rest of his life he would become something better. A bringer of justice and balance to the chaos and anarchy that the clown Sith wrought on the galaxy with his presence alone. The clone had a lot of learning to do now that he was a Jedi and if it took him a decade or more to learn what he could to help others then so be it.

      Smiling at Desiree's comment about Jack throwing a tantrum he then nodded after she spoke, "I'm sure he will. But I think she would need more then luck, Desiree. She might need a tranquilizer if you ask me. If he's as volatile as I believe him to be he might either destroy everything or else kill someone. Then again, Jack is really into the...theatrics. Kinda odd for someone who claims to be a Sith Assassin."

      The two walked down another hallway and he then looked at her with his red eyes and grinned. In that moment he was remembering their encounter last time which he was quite grateful that he'd met her that day. Although he wouldn't mind doing so again with her and even if she wasn't wanting to be tied down, neither was he. They had no reason to be. Sure, she took something that he didn't consider at the time with the hormones raging in him but now that he'd experienced what that was like to be intimate he was more calm with them now. In truth, remembering their encounter he thought in the future they might again. If not it wasn't so much a big deal. They could always have fun at the Tavern. Though he knew she'd drink him under the table. He wasn't that stupid to try and beat her at that game.

      "He's definitely odd all right, it's difficult to get much of a read on him," the blonde answered, a smirk crossing her face, "Saying that though, he was came off as a bit shy and awkward with me. I don't know whether he was just messing with me or something but he didn't seem to know where to look. Kind of like when I met you in the tavern. He was just as uncomfortable as you were at first. Thank the Force you loosened up."

      Desiree caught his gaze and didn't fail to spot the grin. She could take a good guess as to what he was thinking about and the thought caused her smirk to widen too. Oh, she remembered that night and remembered it fondly. It had been a spur of the moment kind of thing but that was how it always was with her. There was rarely ever a plan, she just adapted to the situation. She'd learned early on that view on things was a little different from the Jedi norm but as it had turned out, it usually worked in her favour. It wasn't as if she was trying to be disrespectful to the Jedi and their ways, it was just that she considered them to be just a tad old fashioned. The galaxy was always changing and if you didn't change with it then you became a relic, out of touch, something which she never wanted to find herself becoming. Modernising was always important.

      "Remembering our night, are you?," she then said, blue eyes flashing with amusement.

      Neo then chuckled as Desiree said that the clown was shy and awkward around her. In truth, Jack wasn't messing with her and in a deeper truth, women were a weakness to him. Neo knew that much as much as they were to him in a way. The clown Sith Lord was a sucker for a pretty woman, just like Neo was when he first met her. Then again who he'd met on Munto Codru made him blush and he'd kinda felt weak in the knees so to speak when speaking with her. Attracted to the woman he'd met on the Sith planet as he was, the clone knew that he needed to remain focused on what would lay ahead. Or else suffer what Jack would be a become a complete sucker. Something that Neo didn't wanna be. Reveal everything about himself or fall prey to beauty and either end up dead for it or else make people suffer for his actions.

      "In truth, Desiree, Jack wasn't messing with you. He's a complete sucker for a pretty woman." The clone said after a few moments and grinned, "Don't ask me where that stems from."

      Though he figured that Desiree would catch his gaze when he thought of the intimate night with her. It was then she'd asked if he was remembering it to which he nodded. Red eyes gazed down at her as he fondly remembered it as amusement crossed his features. Not that he didn't wanna remember, on the contrary. The time he'd left Yavin VIII to now he'd remembered their time together many times. Which made him that much happier. Truth be told that Neo didn't believe he'd ever settle down or begin some kind of family. The new Padawan was more a loner in that regard. If he managed to get to close to people he thought it would end up a disaster. Those who could mistake him for the clown to this day would no doubt run away or else try and pick a fight with him. Neo didn't want that of course and he was afraid of being close to people to some degree. Trust wasn't something he had. Though in Desiree he did trust her. She helped the poor clone when he was completely lost and only had holovids to keep him company and learn the ways of being well...a normal person.

      "Oh yes." Neo said a moment after she asked him, "I remember it quite fondly. Still think about it from time to time."

      "If there's one thing I've learned over the years it's that almost all men are suckers for a pretty woman," The blonde Padawan replied with a wicked smirk, "I guess there's still a bit of humanity in him if he feels that way, not much but a little."

      It was the way of things and Desiree didn't see that ever changing. It was just a fact of life and one that she'd admit that she loved in truth. Before her time as a Jedi, there had been an ulterior motive for her being quite so open with people. Flirting and getting to know people had been her means of survival. Sure, that wasn't the case now but the lifestyle would always be a part of her. Sure, it had caused her a few problems or too but nothing that she hadn't been able to talk her way out of. She was still in one piece and had managed to keep on rolling, no matter what happened. It was odd in a way that she'd handled it so well as she knew that there were those among the Order who thought that she would of fallen to the Dark Side long ago because of her nature. Well, it hadn't happened and she had no intention of slipping now.

      "Did you try out any of your new moves while you were on Munto Codru?" she then asked wolfishly. It didn't bother her at all if he had, she was just curious.


      Thanks Chiara for the beautiful sig!

      Neo then laughed, "Guess that includes me."

      Winking after he spoke the clone then looked down at her seeing her wicked smirk. Red eyes blinked and he then shook his head trying not to laugh even more. It appeared that Neo had found his comical side and one that wasn't so completely morbid like Jack. The clown had a really morbid sense of humor to him and the visions and things he'd seen of the clown made him kinda sick to his stomach. From what little visions he'd had Jack at times would kill someone and use their dead body like a puppet and spoke in really weird voices. Sure, to some that might be something funny but again the clone found it really sickening. Surely Desiree would find that in common with Neo as she knew Jack but not well enough like he did. Sure, Neo was a clone of the Sith Lord but he wasn't him now. The clone Padawan had his own life to live and he wasn't gonna be anywhere near Jack in terms of personality or anything like that. If he did he would find a way to correct that. Which made him look at Desiree and make a funny face at her just to get her laughing.

      It was then she'd asked him if he tried any of his new moves on anyone else. That made him chuckle and sigh from amusement. He did try but it didn't work out the way he'd thought. Wasn't a complete waste as he got insight into everything that he felt he was opposite of now. One woman in particular caught his interest and he caught hers. Though nothing really came out of that. Or what Neo could remember as he'd drank quite a lot while he was there. Some was a bit fuzzy to him but he was sure he'd remember it some time down the line.

      "I tried, but, didn't work out the way I thought it would. Oh well. Better luck next time." He said winking.
