Turnabout

"Nice turnabout, Jaina," Zekk said, with a tense smile. "About time you came to rescue me for a change!"

The Rock Dragon pulled alongside, and Jaina's chuckle came through the comm system. "Kind of a family tradition. Dad did the same thing for Uncle Luke at the Death Star, you know. Anyway, couldn't let you keep thinking you're the only one who can pull off a surprise rescue." (36)




Jaina was the first to stumble through the airlock from the Rock Dragon. Setting his external sensors to full alert to keep an eye for unwanted visitors, Zekk threw aside his crash webbing and bounded out of the Lightning Rod's cockpit and into the crew cabin.

He twirled Jaina in a happy hug while they both laughed with relief, but then he growled, "I thought I told you you couldn't come with me!"

Jaina knew he was trying to sound stern, but she could hear the pleasure in his voice. She pulled back and favored him with a Solo grin. "Since when have you ever done anything I wanted you to do?" She gave an unlady like snort. "I'm just as worried about your safety as you are about mine, you know."

"All right," Zekk admitted, "I'm glad you came. But I still don't know how you found us."

Jaina shrugged and grinned again. "Trade secret." (40)
