For her, governments of any stripe would have their constituents believe that they were attempting to remove chaos from the galaxy, that they were trying to make things perfect, when only the Force was perfect. For ordinary beings, life was a constant interplay between order and chaos, day and night, light and dark. Her reverence for the Force had evolved from an enduring love of nature. Yes, she thought of herself as agile and strong and intuitive, but she understood that her skills were a far cry from those attributed to the Jedi. She did, however, embrace the Order’s philosophy of generosity, compassion, and peaceful resolution, and on many a far-flung world she had experienced moments in nature that could only be described as transcendent. It was certainly possible that those peak moments had their basis in belief and emotion, but that hardly mattered; even if she wasn’t able to use the Force, she could at least feel it, and she was content with that.
Cassian saw Han leading Leia away and decided it was time to go. The general seemed to think so too, handing him a hard drive containing alliance intel and clearing him to get off world as fast as possible. His mission was to keep it safe until they could rendezvous. He called Kay to secure a swift getaway before sprinting down the hall. He practically skidded into the room where Bodhi was usually stationed — relieved that he was still there and not lost in the chaos. “We’ve gotta get out of here!” he yelled frantically as icy rubble fell down around them, motioning at the pilot to come with him. “I definitely agree,” Bodhi said with little humor. Cassian grabbed his hand and pulled him along into the long and shaky corridor hoping none of the tunnels would collapse before they could reach the exit. Cassian could tell Bodhi was panicked by the attack. His features were drawn and his breath came quicker than it should. He kept moving though and that was all that mattered for now. When the reached the outside they could finally breath for a moment. Cassian pulled them both down just outside of the hangar. They watched the battle unfold hoping Kay wasn’t caught in the escalating fight and that he would extract them soon.
