On The Starry Horizon, What Awaits?

Chapron - 8,000 PL
Xana knew something was up when her radars picked up Fleet ships in space. She knew something was definitely wrong when they were confirmed on a course to Namek. It make her heart sink to hear that the pods she feared most would break the planet’s crust today. The Stargoons had arrived on Namek and it was a problem. Xana was stationed on the eastern side of Namek, taking refugee with a small band of soldiers. There, she was setting up communication HUDs so that the Saiyan’s could talk with each other with ease, whether they receiver be on Namek, Earth, or Vegeta.
“Xana, you alright? You seemed stressed.” Chapron said, concern coated across her voice. The blade held a bottle of water in her tendrils, extending it outwards towards the Saiyaness, who had her fists curled up. Sweat was dripping down her face and her eyes were clenched shut. “Xana…?” “What?” The Saiyaness growled, her voice filled with evident fear. Chapron fell silent and placed the bottle down on the table Xana stood at, floating upwards and onto the table. “What’s wrong?” There was a moment of silence, tensions floating in the air as Chapron stared at the hurting Queen to Be.
Suddenly, out of nowhere, the Engineer shot around and punched into the dirt, gritting her teeth while Chapron looked down at her, stunned. “The goons followed us. I have no doubt in my mind they’re here to mess with our operation.” Xana stood from her angry kneel and looked up into the green and blue skyline. “They’re probably going to take away our one chance of ever beating the Fleet, too…” The Lady in Black grabbed her head and fell to her knees. “How am I supposed to remain a leader on this mission if I’m not ever sure if we’re going to live.” She whispered, as to not scare the other soldiers, who a few had turned to watch.
“Well isn’t that just sad?” Chapron said, her voice cold now. “Not even going to take hope in the fact that your kingdom is behind you, supporting you and willing to defend you, from now and forever.” Chapron grabbed the bottle and waved it in front of the woman’s face, her eyelid lowered to show disinterest, whether it be for the sadness Xana express, or just toward Xana in itself. “If a leader can’t see that, then perhaps we were all doomed from the start.” Silence fell from there. Xana stared into space, while Chapron remained unmoved. Seconds passed. Maybe a minute, maybe two. Eventually, Xana nodded and smiled, her eyes now revealing a bit more hope. “Maybe you’re right. Damn, you’re always making me feel stupid. I’m surprised I survived this far in life without you.” Xana spoke in a shaky tone, standing once more, this time with a smile and the water bottle Chapron had offered Xana many times before.
“You survived this far because you’re a warrior. You don’t need me, but everyone does need support every now and then. Don’t forget that.” The Demon said, turning to the board Xana was working on. “Perhaps we should finish this up, then maybe we can go investigate the crashes when they happen?” Chapron offered, eyes lighting up in agreeance with Xana’s. “Is it a smart idea to investigate an enemy crash? We could die.” Worried the Saiyaness, which Chapron just shook her hilt to. “Nonsense. We need information, don’t we? You always say the more knowledge you have, the more likely you are to succeed.” Now Chapron was looking to the sky. “I’ll protect you if things go south. What’s the worst that could happen anyways?” Chapron flew back over to a lawn chair she had brought with her on this trip. The blade was looking for any way to not work, and it seemed she was doing just that. Xana didn’t know how to feel about the words of Chapron, but she held them close anyways. Was it really the right call to seek the enemy?
