‘Star Wars: Outbound Flight’ – Chapter 10 (Part 2)

Okay, it’s Friday and I have to say there is a bit of a relief.  The end of the week.  But, with that relief came a massive amount of work.  The lunch rush at work at Wendy’s was incredible today!  I was impressed.  We handled it pretty well and actually had enough workers to cover the rush.  And, for the first time since I’ve worked there, I saw the carryout grill on as well as the main grill.  It was kind of nice, they concentrated on the meat going out the window and I concentrated on the meat needed for the front register.  I didn’t feel like a chicken with it’s head cut off until almost two in the afternoon.  It was a tiring day at work, but I worried about Heather all day long.  She didn’t sleep too well last night because of her cut finger.  I got up around nine o’clock and got to work and stayed until just after the dinner rush.  Once I got done with work, Heather met me at Wendy’s as she had a late night shift tonight, and we ate dinner together.  That was the only thirty minutes we spent together the entire day today and then I left and went home and Heather worked the closing shift at work.  I spent the rest of my night getting ready for tomorrow.  Tomorrow, I’m joining the Vestal Marching Band and we’re going to a clinic with the Cadets of Bergen County to a clinic titled “Music is Cool”.  It’s a cool idea, but I’m not sure what the staffs are going to be doing all day while the students are in these clinics.  It looks to be a fun day, but it will definetly be a long one.  I went home, got myself together and got things ready to go for a bright and early day.  I went to bed around one in the morning and was going to have to get up around three.  So much for sleep tonight.

Okay, so with that said, let’s talk about Part 2 of Chapter 10 of “Star Wars:  Outbound Flight” by Timothy Zahn…..

Chapter 10 (Part 2):  Thrawn ended his lesson abruptly as he said he needed to see to a guest, the Chiss female admiral that would take over the task of the Vagaari vessel.  Car’das asked if they could watch the welcoming ceremony and Thrawn said that Admiral Ar’alani would want to meet them as he’s sure Aristocra Chaf’orm has been probably talking about them.  Maris asked if the Admiral was one of he same family, but Thrawn explained that no upper-ranked individuals of the Chiss military are part of any family to eliminate any family bias.  Maris said that military promoted on what they know and not who they know.  Thrawn said it was just like merit adoptives, which he explained is how warriors are matched wtih families.  Car’das says it sounds complicated, but Maris says it makes sense as this takes the power away from the powerful.  As they walked to the welcoming ceremony, Thrawn had explained that there had been as many as twelve royal families at one time in Chiss history.  As they entered the welcoming chamber, they found it using different colored decor and not as elaborate as far as the Aristocra.  Thrawn said the ceremony would be shortened, less elaborate than the previous meeting and Thrawn said he wanted to hear what they have to say about it later, as the Admiral may be a bit of a surprise to them…..
