Two standard weeks later stood Tasherit at her parent's door. "May I come in?"
Her father who had opened the door nodded and his daughter stepped in. "I want to say goodbye, because the High Command send me on a long-term mission.
So that you don't worry when you won't see me the next few weeks on the base."
"Is this young man... What was his name? Ah, yes, this Jaden Katarn. Will he take part on the mission?"
Tasherit shook her head. "No, Papa, he doesn't take part. I fly alone."
The name Katarn made Tasherit's mother sit up. "Jaden Katarn? The name Katarn isn't so common in the galaxy. Is he akin to Kyle Katarn?"
Tasherit nodded and answered: "Kyle Katarn is his father."
"Then he's also a Jedi."
Tasherit laughed. "No, Mama, just because his father is a Jedi, he does not necessarily have to be one. Jaden is a normal person. And that's good.
My three brothers who can use the Force are already enough."
Dash looked at his daughter. "Is Katarn your lover?"
Tasherit blushed. "No, Papa, as I've already said he's my wing man and in the meantime a very good friend."
Her father nodded and cleared meaningful his throat. Nomi touched slightly her husband.
"Leave her alone, Dash."
The Jedi hugged her daughter who was already a few centimeters taller than her. "Take care, my little one and may the Force be with you."
Tasherit slipped from the embrace and looked at her chrono. "I have to go."
She hugged her father and kissed him on the cheek.
"Fly carefully, Starlet and stay healthy."
His daughter laughed. "I always do, Papa." Then she left briskly the barrack to escape further embraces and good advices from her parents.
Dash sat down at the small table and looked thoughtfully at his wife, who was standing at the open barrack door and gazed after her daughter.
"Why does the High Command send our daughter alone on a mission?"
Nomi turned to him. "I don't know. But they've sent Poe also often alone, Dash. Perhaps she should meet somewhere some new recruits to give them the coordinates of the base.
Don't worry, Darling." She winked at her husband. "Do not forget, our daughter has the Force as an ally."
