The force is with us all: never forget that! (currently trying to keep that in mind 🤕)
it’s been nearly two weeks since my last posting, and things have only gone bad to worse. after my failed attempt to persuade a rather gorgeous guard to release me, the other twi’lek guards moved me to a more secure cell: something about being too...distracting, i guess? i honestly have no idea what they could mean by that (😆).
i had been hoping that i would be able to meet with some authority figure eventually and convince them i had done nothing wrong, but i never got the chance: shortly after my cell transfer, i found myself getting thrown into a rather crowded transport and shipped right out of the capital! i couldn’t believe it! and guess what the destination of the transport was? a junkyard, out in the middle of a wasteland of rock and dirt, full of imperial and clone war era scrap, where we would be picking apart every sorry wreck for something worth using by the ryloth government. karabast!
i’m not an un-athletic guy, but this scavenger work is horrendous. from the break of dawn to twilight, it’s picking apart every piece of junk we can find, with occasional breaks for meals and rests. and it doesn’t help that my co-workers are legitimate criminals. most of them are twi’leks, but there are some humans too: according to a fellow slave...er...scavenger, they’re former imperials, serving time for their ‘atrocious misdeeds’ to the people of ryloth. can’t say i blame them: the imps did a real number to ryloth, especially with their tolerance towards the slavery business concerning thousands of twi’lek females.
they would be sold away to l***y masters as servants and dancers, and the empire simply turned a blind eye, with some officers keeping slaves themselves! look, i enjoy watching a twi’lek woman dance, but to have them bought and abused as slaves? that’s just...sickening.
sorry: i’m digressing. i’m able to post now because i managed to acquire a somewhat functioning data pad from an old cruiser amongst the junk yesterday. i have no idea where e9 is, and i can’t reach him, so i really need help: if anyone can contact maz kanata, tell her what’s happened! fast!
