Summary: Kashyk introspection and regret. Drabble.
'My offer was sincere,' she told me, and she meant it. When I thought I'd deceived her I'd actually laughed in her face, but she meant it.
She humiliated me. I should have arrested her and her entire sanctimonious crew. I didn't. Why didn't I?
It's been months since I let her go, but still she dominates my thoughts. I remember her keen intelligence, the sparkle in her eye, the scent of her palm. I've never met anyone like her.
I think sometimes about trying to find her again, but I won't. She would laugh in my face.
