Rowan noted the grin on his lips when he teased about the captain demanding payment. It was something she wondered– what was in it for Sal? Why keep these padawans on board when it was such a huge risk? He didn’t exactly seem like a humanitarian type, but Row went with it for now, as it was all they had. “How would you know about what I’m willing to part with?” she teased, tilting her head slightly. “But to answer your question, yes. I’ve explored a bit around the ship. Not everything, though. I’d been getting too tired out, although I’m feeling much better now. I haven’t seen anything that needs fixing, although some of the air filters should be changed. Maybe I could help with that sometime, since it seems I’ve got nothing but time on my hands for a while. Unless you prefer to work alone. I really don’t want to impose.”
for a moment when she teases him with that question, he considers replying in kind, considers saying something along the lines of well if you’re willing to part with your clothes i could always help with that, but the ship is in agony all around him and he can’t turn that off, couldn’t even turn that off if he were to engage in something as pleasurable as that, and so he keeps his mouth shut and merely returns an amused smile to her words.
then she speaks of air filters and the expression goes back to neutral, his thoughts already going over what he has available, what he can do about air filters rather than replace them since they don’t have any spare ones at the moment. “i do prefer working alone,” he replies to her almost absentmindedly, his attention only returning to her a moment later. “but if you have nothing to do i don’t mind the company.” and that, at the very least, is a strange thing for him to say to a jedi.
it’s therefore not long before he motions at the entirety of her with a vague hand motion and adds: “as long as you keep your wavey force shit to yourself, i do mind that, it gives me a headache.” it also makes his skin feel like its itching or burning - or both - and entirely ruins any concentration he usually has, but those are things he won’t reveal unless he has to, and so far so good.
