Note: Kylo is undercover as “Matt”, and you’re the only one who knows who he really is (at least, you’re the only one Kylo told, everyone else is just suspicious). You’re trying to help him with a repair and it doesn’t go according to plan.
“Is this it?” you waved a tool at Kylo, who looked equally as confused.
“Maybe? I don’t know,“ he mumbled, pushing up his fake glasses, "Here, let’s try it,” he said, taking it from you and fiddling around with the console of the TIE Fighter.
You were perched on top of the spacecraft, with your legs dangling into the cockpit. You peered down at Kylo, who was trying to fix the radar.
"Lieutenant Y/N… Matt,” a new voice spoke. You looked to your left to see Hux standing on the ground below the TIE fighter.
“General,” you nodded.
There was a silence. You gently nudged Kylo with your foot and he mumbled a greeting.
You smirked, of course Hux knew it was Kylo in that disguise– it wasn’t hard to recognise him if you had seen him without his helmet before. But Kylo, completely unaware that so many people on the Finaliser already knew who he was, still thought Hux was oblivious.
“How’s the repair coming along?” Hux asked you.
“Fine,” Kylo frowned.
“I believe I was asking Y/N,” Hux sneered before flashing you a small smile.
Kylo rolled his eyes, what he wouldn’t give to punch Hux straight in the face…
“It’s going perfectly well, thank you general,” you smiled back.
Hux nodded, “Good, good. Well do let me know if there’s anything you need,” he said, still only looking at you as he winked before sauntering off.
“I hate him,” Kylo said as soon as Hux was out of earshot.
You laughed, “Radar technicians aren’t allowed to hate Generals.”
“Yes well the sooner I’m done fixing this,” he pointed to the console in an annoyance, “the sooner I’m getting out of this disguise, and Hux will stop coming over here and flirting with you.”
You didn’t have the heart to tell him Hux was only doing it to get on Kylo’s nerves. “Are you sure you don’t want me to go and ask someone, Kylo?… You do realise you’re not actually a qualified radar technician, don’t you?” You laughed.
“Y/N!” Kylo looked up as he whispered harshly, “My name is Matt,” Kylo said pointedly, looking around as he spoke to check if anyone heard. No one was even paying attention to the two of you.
“Alright, Matt. If you’re so adamant to fix the damn radar, open up the console first… Something tells me prodding at the screen with screwdriver isn’t going to help,” you stifled a laugh. You had no idea why Kylo was even dressed in this disguise, let alone why he chose to be a radar technician or why he actually insisted on trying to fix things!
Kylo, sensing your thoughts, huffed a response before trying to unscrew the bolts holding the radar in place. Something sparked and a small puff of black smoke emerged from the panel.
Kylo cursed and looked to you helplessly. You shrugged, “I’m not the trained radar technician here, love.” you said, a smile playing at your lips.
“Well maybe if you actually came down here and helped me instead of sitting up there and giving me orders…".
You sighed, shifting so you could slide down. Kylo moved across to help you into the cockpit, holding his arms out to you.
As you went to jump in, you slipped, almost toppling the both of you over in the process as you lost your balance. You leaned against Kylo heavily, wrapping your arms around him to steady yourself.
“Well hello there,” he chuckled, kissing the top of your head as you crashed into him.
You felt his chest vibrate as he laughed and smiled sheepishly.
“Okay step over the seat…careful this time,” he added. He held out both of his hands and you took them thankfully, stepping slowly over the seat.
Kylo moved to the side as you examined the console, picking up the tool you had just given him. You looked at it for a few moments and then turned to Kylo, “You know I don’t know what I’m doing either, right?”
“Of course I do,” Kylo smirked at you, moving until your faces were inches apart.
“I just wanted you close enough for me to do this,” he said as he pressed his lips to yours.
You smiled through the kiss, wrapping your arms over his shoulders.
“I think Matt’s a better kisser than you,” you teased when you parted.
Kylo laughed, “Is that right? Well, we’ll just have to see about that,” he said as he threw his glasses off and starting peppering you with kisses.
‘Sci-fi romance adventure’ Alone With You on PS Vita now ⊟
PS4 too, if you’d like. If you have any interest at all in either classic point-and-click adventure games or visual novels, this new PSN release by Benjamin Rivers (Home) should be on your radar.
Alone With You casts you as the only survivor of a nascent offworld colony. In order to make your escape, you have to explore the ruins– and hang out with AI recreations of the experts who once shared the space with you.
I’m slowly working through this game, so hopefully there will be more impressions soon!
