A few hours later, you're all on your way to the hangar.
Anon is going to Khar Delba with Mandalore, Applejack, Rainbow, and Pinkie to shut down this virus. They have no additional intel on how they make it, what it looks like, and how many enemies are there, so they're going in a bit blind.
You, on the other hand, are going to the planet Myrkr with Fluttershy, Twilight, and Big Mac. You need these lizards to repel the Sith's Force powers and make it easier to take them down. You don't need many of them, just enough for your strongest to go against the Sith and dampen their connection to the Force.
Coco, Rarity and Maud will stay behind aboard the Kandosii
You and Anon walk toward the hangar, alone. All your gear is ready to go.
You turn to him. "You nervous?"
He looks at you for a moment. "I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a little bit."
You nod. "I don't blame you. I got the easy job this time."
He nods as well, and there's another pause as you both round a corner.
You look over at him again. He's just staring straight forward as he walks. You aren't going to lie, you're still a little mad at him for comparing you to Gilda a few days ago. It hurt. Bad.
He did say he was sorry though... As mad as you were at him, you don't want to part ways on a sour note. You know he meant it when he said he was sorry.
You hold out your hand and grab onto his, giving it a little squeeze. He looks down at it and then back at you. You smile under your helmet, knowing he can't see you, but not caring.
He seems to ease up a bit and he gives your hand a squeeze.
The two of you walk down the hallway together, fingers interlocked between each other's, and head into the hangar. Your group is all talking with each other and getting ready to leave. Maud is likely wishing them all good luck now.
"Sunset, wait." The two of you stop walking and he reaches to his belt. "Take this with you."
He pulls out the orange lightsaber he stole from Discord's ship.
You take it in your hands and inspect it. "Are you sure? You could probably use it."
"I want you to take it." He says. "Keep yourself safe."
You look at his visor, imagining his face beneath.
Finally, you nod and hook it to your belt. "Thanks, love."
"Anything for you, Sunset."
You hold out your arms and hug him tightly. He returns it. It's strange, but it feels like you're saying goodbye forever. It's making you nervous too.
You were furious with Anon a few days ago, but now you're scared. You have a bad feeling about all of this.
"Promise you'll come back home to me, Anon..." You whisper.
He sighs for a moment, giving you a squeeze. "I will, Sunset. I promise..."
The two of you hold each other for a moment longer.
Finally, Mandalore's voice catches your attention. "Anonymous! Let's go!"
You both release each other and look at him. He's at the base of Rainbow's ship, while Pinkie waves goodbye. Applejack and Rainbow must already be aboard.
"That's my cue." He says.
You look back at him and nod. "Looks like it."
"Until our paths cross again, Sunny Bunny."
You can hear the smile in his voice as he speaks. It makes you giggle softly. "Until our paths cross again."
The two of you proceed to your ships, the both of you waving goodbye to Maud as you part ways.
You head to your ship, stepping onto the exit ramp and looking back at Anon as he walks onto the Sonic Rainboom. You wait until he's totally on board before proceeding onto your ship.
Big Mac is in the main hold. He sets his gear down on the floor next to a seat and sighs. You nod at each other silently as he sits down.
In the cockpit, you are met with Fluttershy and Twilight. You silently sit in the pilot's seat and prep the ship for launch, taking a deep breath.
"Sunset? Are you okay?" The purple twi'lek looks at you with concern.
You remove your helmet and set it down on the console. "Yeah, I'm fine."
You press another few buttons on the console and look out the viewport at the Sonic Rainboom. You pause as you see Anon through the viewport at the controls next to Rainbow Dash, talking with her and Mandalore. He takes off his helmet as well. After a second, he looks at you and pauses.
You don't turn on your comms or say anything to him. All you do is smile. He smiles back and nods at you.
At that, you activate your ship and take off. You hover above the ground for a moment and the ship goes into reverse, out of the hangar.
Once you're in space, you activate the navicomputer and align yourself with the direction of Myrkr. As soon as you're facing the right way, you push the throttle forward and blast off into hyperspace, leaving the Kandosii, and Anon, behind...
