Hope, Tears, And A Song.

Continued from HERE.

The door opens and Sevan walks in with dinner. Noel jumps up in shock and stands next to Zebb. She starts to button up her shirt while Zebb is fixing his pants.

Sevan see all and blushes "Ohhh geez, I'm so sorry..... I'll..... ummmmmm leave this here and come back later." She put a try of food down and starts to walk away.

"No wait, I want to talk to you." Says Noel.

"Now?" Both Zebb and Sevan ask together.

"Yeah. I want to know what is going on. I mean, Zebb told me why he is here but why am I? Why save me, then keep me as a prisoner." Asks Noel.

"Honestly, I don't know." Said Sevan "I never ask Mas Kon what he does with his prisoners. He may keep you as a slave, like myself."

"I will never be a slave. I would rather die first." Said Noel angrily

"That's how I was at first. But I gave in and now I do what ever Mas Kon wants. I figure if I don't argue with him and do what he wants me to do, he will give me my freedom when I turn 18, like he promised." Sevan says and smiles

"But what if he don't?" Zebb asks getting up. He walks over to the food and sees what the nights dinner is.

Sevan sighs and says "Well then my boyfriend may buy me from Mas Kon. And if that don't work he says he will basically sneak me off the ship. And Yes I do realize that would mean having Mas Kon after the both of us. But I'm willing to take that risk to be with him."

"How do you think he can get you off the ship." Asked Zebb through a mouthful of food.

"Easy, Aziah is Mas Kons step son. Unlike me Aziah is allowed off the ship. Right now he has joined a University on Coruscant." Says Sevan.

Noel and Zebb look at each other. They realize they are thinking of the same thing, a potential rescue.

Noel looks back at Sevan and asks hopefully. "Is there any way to reach Aziah."

Sevan shakes her head and says. "No, not any more. He lost holo-net connection several weeks ago. Ohhhh I miss him so much."

Still hopeful, Noel asks. "Is there any way for you to reach the outside worlds at all?"

Sevan sighs and shakes her head again and says ." No. Only Aziah knew the security codes to get through. We would chat on a secure line, nobody knew not even Mas Kon. I did however hack through once and start a blog but since they change codes everyday it is near impossible to get through them"

"Is there any way you can get through again..... Please our lives depend on this." Noel pleaded.

Sevan shook her head. "I..... I can't. I'm sorry. MY future depends on how happy Mas Kon is. If I try anything stupid he will kill me or keep me from seeing Aziah. Either way my life would be over."

"I swear if you help us get out of here, I promise I will keep you and Aziah safe. I can also give you both jobs on Sky City. Please you are our only hope to get out of here alive" Noel was almost yelling. Luckily the room was sound proof.

"All the prisoners say that. But I know better. Nobody is more powerful then Kloddo. And since Kloddo wants Zebb dead, Zebb will die. Sorry but that's the way it works in these parts." Said Seven who was starting to feel uneasy.

Noel was almost in tears. "If you don't help and Zebb is killed MY life will be over. Don't you understand." Zebb walks over to Noel and tries to comfort her. As he holds her she cries into his shoulder. "What a selfish little brat"

Zebb looks over to Sevan and says. ""I think it would be best if you left"

Sevan just nods and picks up the dishes. She leaves the room and walks down the hall to a kitchen. She hands the dishes to a couple droids and leaves without saying a word. She walks to her room and once there, closes the door and falls to the floor. She starts sobbing...... She likes Noel and Zebb and she wants to help them more then any of other prisoners that have ever came through. She feels so helpless, she feels so bad for Noel.....

Meanwhile back in the holding cell.

Zebb is holding Noel who is still crying. "Shhhhhhh..... every thing will be alright. I will come up of something to get us out of here." Zebb was now more determined then ever to escape. The only thing that was keeping him from escaping before was knowing Noel was aboard another part of the ship. But now that she was here with him, he had nothing stopping him. It wasn't that he feared death, he was more afraid of what would happen to Noel if he did die.

She has been through so much in her life time. Her childhood spent in the hospital. The shuttle crash that killed her parents and left her in the hospital even longer. The attack on her planet that killed everyone she ever knew and loved. And when Jomb showed up she was so happy, but he too left her heart broken. She had lost so much, he knew she couldn't afford to lose someone else she had cared for.

Just then a song he had heard awhile back entered his thoughts:

Tonight it's very clear
As we're both lying here
There's so many things I want to say
I will always love you
I would never leave you alone

Sometimes I just forget
Say things I might regret
It breaks my heart to see you crying
I don't wanna lose you
I could never make it alone

I am a man who will fight for your honor
I'll be the hero you're dreaming of
We'll live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

You'll keep me standing tall
You'll help me through it all
I'm always strong when you're beside me
I have always needed you
I could never make it alone

I am a man who will fight for your honor
I'll be the hero you've been dreaming of
We'll live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

Just like a knight in shining armor
From a long time ago
Just in time I will save the day
Take you to my castle far away

I am a man who will fight for your honor
I'll be the hero you're dreaming of
We're gonna live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

We'll live forever
Knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

As he was remembering the song, Noel calmed down. She looked up and said. "I love that song."

The truth.

Continued from HERE.

Noel and Zebb stand there holding each other for awhile. Finally Noel pulls away and looks at Zebb. She asks him, "Do you have any idea what is going on? I haven't got a straight answer from anyone since I was captured."

Zebb went over and sat on the bed he looks at Noel and says "You don't know anything at all."

Noel went over and sat next to him. "Well I did know that those Rodian's were going to take me to Geonosis, but that's all." Says Noel, "I just wish I knew why they were doing this."

Zebb looks down and closes his eyes. " I..... know .... why." He says and looks back up at Noel.

Noel looks at him and asks. "Well, what is it then."

Zebb gets back up and walks over to the window. He sighs and starts to tell Noel about his past.

Once he finishes, he looks back at Noel who was still sitting on the bed. "Your not mad at me for not telling you the truth...... are you?"

Noel gets up and walks over to him. "I could never be mad at you, you had your reasons to keep it all a secret. And actually you never really lied, since I never asked you about you past." She says as she smiles at him. "But," She continues "I wish you did tell me. If you did I'm sure we would not be in this mess right now"

"Why do you say that? " Asks Zebb. "Kloddo is a very powerful man, he gets what he wants and doesn't stop at nothing to get it."

"Well, I'm friends with someone even more powerful..... Jaba (Fatboy) Hut." She says with a smirk.

"Well, now you tell me." He states "If I knew that I would have told you right away."

"What, you didn't know. I thought I told you about him." She says. She sighs and starts to walk away.

Zebb grabs her and says. "I really am sorry for not telling you sooner, I..... feel like this is all my fault. If I wouldn't have came to Sky City, you would be safe there and not here."

"Don't say that." She says looking up at him. "I am so glad I met you. And I have never been happier or felt safer then I am right here, right now." She then leans in and starts to kiss him. "Come on, I have an idea that will keep our minds off this problem for awhile." She gives him a seductive smile and leads him to the bed.

"Hummmmm, I think I will like this idea." He says as he sits down on the bed.

They continue to kiss and Noel climbs up on Zebbs lap..... Then the door opens.

Together at last.

Continued from HERE.....

Sevan steps up the key pad and types in the pass code for the door. She steps back as the door opens. She enters the room and Noel follows. Noel looks around the room. It is bigger then the one on the other ship. It even has a shower. She sees Zebb standing by the window. He's looking out at a near by planet.

Without turning around Zebb says. "Hey Sevan, you're a bit early for dinner."

Sevan says. "I am, uhhhhh....."

Noel interrupts her. "Hey Zebb."

Zebb turns around so fast he nearly falls over. "Noel!!!...Your here, Sevan said you won't be awake for another couple days." He says, giving Sevan a quick glance.

"Sorry, I didn't really know till this morning." Says Sevan.

Zebb looks at Noel, not really believing she is standing there right in front of him. Not looking away from Noel he asks Sevan. "Your not going to get in trouble for letting me see her, are you?" He then walks up to Noel and touches her cheek, making sure she is real.

"Ummmmm..... No the captain told me to put her here, with you." Says Sevan.

"Really.... Wow this is even better then I had imagined." Says Zebb more to himself then to Sevan. He then steps in closer to Noel and puts his arms around her. "Ohhhhh, Noel I have missed you so much."

Noel says nothing as Zebb holds her. She is just overwhelmed with emotion. She is so relieved to see him and to be in his arms again.

"I'll let you two be alone." Says Sevan as she leaves the room.

The awakening

Continued from HERE.

Two weeks pass.

And Noel has been saved. She is still unconscious, but her body is completely healed, due to the Bacta Tank they had her in. Even though the Bacta did its job and healed her wounds, she still has some scaring and permanent fur loss.

A droid doctor approaches Noel, needle in hand. It inserts the needle into a tube that runs to Noel neck. The droid then continues to inject Noel with the drug that is in the needle.

The captain is standing nearby waiting. He asks the droid, "How long will it take?"

The droid answers in a mechanical voice, "A minute or two, sir."

They stand and wait until the drug takes effect. Soon Noel starts to open her eyes. She looks around in an confused state. She thinks to herself, Whaaa, where am I, ohhh my head hurts so bad. I'm not dead, but how can that be, I was so sure of it. These people, they saved me..... Ohhhhh man.... She tries to sit up but her head starts to spin, so she lays back down.

A young slave girl named Sevan comes over and gives Noel a hand.

"Easy now, here I'll help you." She says as she helps Noel sit up. Noel sits up again, her head is starting to feel better.

She looks at Sevan and asks in a weak voice. "Where am I? What happened?"

Sevan looks at her boss then back at Noel. "Do you want some water?"

Noel looks at the man standing on her other side, then back at Sevan she nods and says. "Yes, that would be great." As Sevan leaves, Noel looks at the man and asks. "What happened to me, I should be dead..... did you save me?"

The man looks at Noel and says "Your questions will be answered later." And he walks away. Just as he was leaving the room, Sevan enters, "Take her to holding cell number 4, I'm sure her friend will be happy to see her again." He whispers to her.

Sevan say, "Yes, Sir." She wonders why he wants them to together, but at least this means one less cell to clean and supply with the necessities. So she decides not to ask. She approaches Noel and hands her the glass of water. Noel drinks it, and says. "Thank you," setting the empty glass down on the end table.

Sevan helps Noel up and quietly takes her out of the room. Two droids wait just outside the door and start to follow them as they continue down the hall and into an elevator. Once on the elevator Noel turns to Sevan and asks once again "What's going on?"

Sevan looks at Noel with sad eyes and says. "You are a prisoner on the ship that attacked you." Noel gives Sevan an angry look and is just about to fight. Sevan just looks at the droids and says. I wouldn't try to fight, they can do some harm..... trust me. Any way, there may be someone who wants to see you, in one piece" She said with a smile, as the elevator door opens.

Noel calms down and asks as she continues to follow Sevan "You mean Zebb, he is here, alive."

Sevan nods and says. "He has been so worried about you. I have been telling him you are okay and keeping him updated on your progress."

"You have talked to him?" Asks Noel.

"Yes, everyday, two or three times.... when ever I see him. " She says, and continues "I'm not supposed to talk to the prisoner, but I do anyway. Did you realize Zebb really loves you, and he was so upset when he thought you had died. All he wanted to do was to hold you and say goodbye. It tore him up so bad.... It took me three days to get him to say anything. And that was only after I had mention something about you. I didn't realize you two knew each other, till then.

"How is he?" Asked Noel.

"See for yourself." Said Sevan smiling as they stopped at a door.
