Ashlynn was starting to shake, a combination of the strain and her own fear, when suddenly a voice broke through the white noise. Instantly, her hand was heading towards her blaster, until she realized she’d been the one calling out for help, and someone had actually answered her. She couldn’t believe someone was even around to answer, and if she didn’t hate the concept, she would have said it was fate, the Force at work. At the very least, it was hope.

He didn’t look like the good Samaritan type. He looked as dirty as she was, and a few years older. The older a street-dweller was, the meaner they tended to be, bitter at the world for their lack of success. But there was something about him, the way he held himself maybe, that told her he wasn’t just another street rat. It made her wonder if he was really going to help her, or if he was just curious about the screaming Zeltron girl, or worse. She wasn’t even really sure if he could help her, let alone if he would choose to do so. She didn’t want to have to rely on this man, and it made her skin crawl to think what could happen if he wasn’t just there to help. They were the only people around, after all, and in the time it would take her to shoot him, it would be too late. But, she didn’t have any other option except to try and hope for once, she’d be proven wrong. Danni was running out of time.

“There’s a girl trapped under the debris,” she explained, desperation clouding her usually sharp gaze. She didn’t, however, let her guard down, her every muscle tensed around the stranger. Her line of sight kept flickering to the fallen wall, where she could no longer hear the little Twi’lek’s cries. “I’m afraid if I move something wrong, she’ll get crushed, but what’s safe to move is too heavy for me. Please, she’s just a kid, and I,” Ashlynn paused for one brief second before meeting the stranger’s gaze and finishing, “I don’t got a lot, but I’ll do anything I can to pay you back. Anything. Just, help her.”

Ashlynn was very well aware how dangerous such words were. No one did anything for free; there was always a catch, an angle, some way to screw you over in the end. But she didn’t care. She wasn’t going to let the world’s messed up workings take away that kid’s future. She’d deal with the backlash she was sure would come on her own.
