“I try to, if I can…” She commented, “swirling her glass. “It’s hard to with my workload. Spend more time as Mandalore than I do as ‘Kar’…”
Her smile faltered, looking worn. The weight of authority bearing down on her. Wartime Mandalores had it rough, but unlike her predecessors, she had to navigate a more aruetii like role, which only frustrated her at times. She could do it, but she didn’t like it.

“Yeah, well.” He sighed a bit, taking a gulp, and sat back, tipping his head back a moment to look up at the ceiling. “I missed Kar. Just this. Simple things like this.”

Wanna know how long it’s been since I’ve gotten laid? Even had a date? No yeh don’t. Yeh’d have a heart attack, an’ yer kind of too important to kick the bucket outta shock.” He shook his head, taking another gulp.
“But nevermind that. Advice? Keep chasin’, sheila. If he’s worth it, he’ll come around. Otherwise, well, it’s not like it’ll be hard fer a gorgeous dangerous woman like you t’find someone who is.”
