star wars: tfa character studies
Rey missed things she’d hated: the pervasive grit and dust of the desert, the sandstorms, the hunger pangs that’d kept her awake. She missed waiting and the illusion that someone would come back for her. The monotony of scavenging and scraping by, every day the same.
