The extraction took a little effort. Luckily Kallus prepared to leave at a moment notice.
The phantom slid into the destroyer. Kanan and Zeb provided cover fire will Kallus sprinted across the dock before throwing himself on to the ship.
They made into hyperspace, not a second to soon.
They docked back on the Ghost without problem. The only trouble was getting Kallus settled. He couldn’t go to the Rebellion, they’d only hold him indefinitely for information. Going to live anywhere else would be suicide since he was now a wanted fugitive.
Zeb put in a good word and Kallus moved into Ezra’s bunk, while Ezra got Sabines old room, until she returned.
Hera was in the cockpit inputting the coordinates for their next stop.
“Excuse Ms. Syndulla…” Kallus knocked lightly on the wall next to the door.
“I apologize. I ha-”
“What do you even want Kallus.” Hera turns on him. Annoyed and angry.
“I’m not i sure know what you mean.”
“You helped hurt my family. You’ve hunted my family. I don’t give a damn about what you did to me. The sleepless nights. The worry. Thinking about what I’d do if I lost them.”
Hera advances on Kallus, and he backs away slowly.
“This is my family. Zeb, Sabine and Ezra may not be my children but they might as well be. So don’t think you can come aboard my ship and act like your one of us. You might have helped out Zeb and Sabine, but you could be playing us. If you dare, if you even think about hurting one of them I will end you in a second.”
Kallus is halfway out the door by this points still attempting to back away from the angry Twi'lek. “I’m sorry.”
“You better be…now why are you even here?”
Kallus swallows, and pauses a moment before digging in his bag. He pulls out the Kalikori and holds it out to Hera. She takes it from him carefully. “I…I thought you would want it back…Ezra pointed out that it belonged to you and so I stole it before I esc-”
He’s cut off by Hera throwing her arms around him.
“Your most welcome Captain Syndu-”
She let him go, “You call me Hera.”
