Andy looked at him, slightly confused "You ok...?" She ask ed softly, touching his shoulder. She was worried about him.
(OH MY GOD I AM SO SORRY! *crying*)
((*grins maniacally and hug attacks* IT'S OKAY!! >8D ))
Kani twitched slightly at her touch; it was almost a flinch, but not quite. "I'm fine." Though clipped, his voice was eerily calm in contrast to the tenseness in his muscles. It sounded practiced, like he was used to forcing his voice to stay even when he wasn't.
The hover slid out from the mouth of the tunnel, back into the light, and his breath hissed out in a rush, his body relaxing. He put his head in his hands, shaking.
She looked extremely confused. "KANI! What's goinf on?" She sounded almost scared for him. Andy was extremely tense
Kani was silent for a moment as he tried to calm down. "Everything they ever did to me, they did in the dark." When he finally spoke, the words rushed together, as if he was trying to get them out as fast as possible. "Every second I was expecting someone to burn me, electrocute me, cut something off...But I could never tell when it was going to happen because I couldn't see."
She whined at that and huggrd him tight "Love you are safe.... I promise."
Kani gave a short laugh. "We're about to board a spaceship that is at least fifty years old and has not been tested, secretly fly to a Jakien space station, which, if we're caught, could get millions killed. Not exactly the safest of situations."
He paused, staring out the window at the sunset. "I'm fine in combat. When I fight, I forget about everything. But every other time..." He shook his head. "I can't get away from them. Everything I look at is somehow a trigger. A glass bottle the same green color as their night vision goggles; a tree, reminding me how I'd forgotten what nature looked like; Anika, reminding me how they took me from my cell to make me watch as they broke my sister's neck." His voice cracked and he looked away from her, back out the window. "They beat her first. Totured her like they'd tortured me. I can't let them do that to her kids."
She whimpered and hugged him tightly, kissing kis jaw "Honey..." she whispered, trying not to cry. Andy hated his pain, his fear. Shr hated the idea that people she loved were gonna be hurt "We will get them back. I swear."
Kani took her hand and squeezed it. "We have to." He cursed, shaking his head. "It'll take us at least fifteen hours to get there, Andy. They've already had them for five."
((WHY??? I've stuck periods between every single letter. There's nothing in my post that should be censored.))
((This is stupid.))
Kani pressed the heels of his hands into his eyes and sighed in frustration. "They took Anika and Tal five hours ago. It will take us at least fifteen hours to fly there. What if we're too late?"

((About bloody time. >.<))
Andy whimpered "I am sor worried about them..." she whispered, looking down "Dukani we need to get to them fast..."
Kani nodded. "When I left to get you, they were filling the ship with fuel. We won't quite be able to go full speed, or we'll run out, but we can push it."
The cab pulled up by the shipyard and Kani payed him before stepping out of the vehicle, hoisting the heavy duffel bag over his shoulder.
