Against the odds, Aurora was somehow still standing after Nashua's massive ki blast, and had even managed to handle Typha's devastating sword blow. And she also kept on talking, continuing with her... Interesting take on things. Nashua was mostly just left puzzled by Aurora at this point. The Arcosian spoke like Nashua had been a cruel dictator for years on end, when, really, she'd been Queen for about three months, and aside from a few changes - like the eradication of any remnants of the World Trade Fleet - she was pretty sure she hadn't changed much about the planet. "I just don't know where you're getting all this information from, Aurora," Nashua said with a sigh and a shake of her head. At this point, she only felt saddened by the lens through which Aurora seemed unable to stop viewing the world through.
"You keep saying all these things, but... They simply aren't the case," Nashua stated, trying to keep her tone calm and understanding. She knew it was a long shot, but there was still the chance she could get Aurora to calm down and realize there was no need for all of this. "There's no oppression I'm putting your people under - the only laws I've even altered since I became Queen had to do with the removal of the Fleet from the planet's core governments. The only attack this system has suffered from since I became Queen was from you, and I've never laid a finger on someone for speaking out against me. You nearly murdered a thousand odd people, that is why I took action against you, don't mistake it for something it wasn't. You could have been praising me across the galaxy and I'd still have considered you a threat for what you did." Still, Aurora seemed to have, well, 'learned her lesson' to some extent. Nashua let out a breath of air, and for the first time since she'd arrived on the scene, her power level dropped back down, and her golden hair turned dark brown, while her eyes took on the color her hair had just been.
"When I offered to have you work with me," Nashua continued, "I didn't mean as some kind of servant, or to demean you. You clearly want to make a difference for your people, and I want to make that same kind of difference. You have my word that I shall be as fair and kind to them as I would my own children. But all I can give you right now is my word. If you don't believe me, then you'll just have to see whether or not I really do live up to your expectations. And that offer still stands. Think about it." Nashua bowed her head towards Aurora, then turned towards Typha. "I'm going, now. I don't think she's a threat, but if you still want to kill her, then so be it. But it'll be on your own merit, not mine. I'll see you later." And with that, Nashua started to make her way back down the mountain, and towards the base she'd called in earlier - if she kept them waiting much longer, they'd start to worry.
Nashua drops back down to her base form, and then attempts another exit!
