WE LIIIIVE!! And I PROMISE THIS ISN’T ANOTHER APRIL FOOLS DAY CHAPTER.

It’s not April anyway, it’s July now :P

I know the chapter STARTS exactly the same as the April Fools Day thing, but that was kind of on purpose, so the prank would start out believable and then quickly degenerate into something completely ridiculous. But this chapter is a real chapter and has another chapter ready to be posted after it in a week or so.

Thanks for waiting!

Preview:

           Rex sat in the co-pilot’s chair, huddled in the poncho as they came out of hyperspace. The droid kept the ship cold everywhere but Rex’s quarters, but after days of being escorted back and forth only once a day from the showers and laundry, he was all too glad to sit shivering in the cockpit when the droid gave him permission. His new black shirt was too thin to keep him very warm by itself, but at least he had an outfit and boots that fit well, as well as a few toiletries to take off the unkempt edge.

           So far the droid seemed uninterested in harming him, and even its droning voice was better company sometimes than the blank walls of Rex’s quarters. The anxiety that followed him back aboard when they’d left Elrood had been dampened by what he could only assume was a deep exhaustion due to his brain still recovering from the surgery. He was familiar with the energy crash after the pain and adrenaline of a battle wore off. This one was just lasting longer than he expected.

           “Our next destination?” he asked, when a blinding star and crescents of planets appeared on the view screen.

           “Yes. I calculate we will arrive on the planet’s surface in forty-three minutes.”

           Rex stared at the two nearest planets, wondering which one the droid meant. It had been at least three days since they left Elrood. It was hard to keep track when the droid was the only one with a chronometer.
