It's been, well, it's been a rough few days. The worst of the crying and the emotional numbness have passed, Ibani's grief easing a little. It's hardly surprising then that Chirrut and Baze intend to take Ibani to the Temple of the Kyber. To take her HOME.

Chirrut is dressed in his full robes for the first time in days - the warmth of Milliways makes his gear uncomfortable at times, as it is meant for the chill of Jedha. He's been told they look good.

He just cares that they're warm, and comfortable.

Carefully he settles his necklace under his robe, where the metal won't catch the chill air.

"Ready to go, little one?"

They do look good, Chirrut. You're missing out.

Baze, too, is dressed to the nines, beyond ready to open the door to the temple--to home--and bring Ibani there. He hops from foot to foot in front of the door, grinning at her.

"Yes, are you ready? We have so much to show you!"

Chirrut opens the door, and pulls their little party through.

The room on the other side is fairly small, and stuffed with rude wooden mannequins on one side. On the other side of the now closing door the sounds of the bar are replaced with the sounds of people going about their business, with the rapid tempo of two staves snapping against each other in a brutal training spar providing the underlying beat.

Baze takes the lead then, crossing out of the tiny room and into the training hall proper. "This is the training hall, Ibani," he says, beaming at her and offering her hand a squeeze. "Here, you'll learn staffwork."

A thin, black woman who's older than the hills with a staff slung over her shoulder approaches them with a powerful stride. "Guardian Malbus. Master Imwe. Who is this?"

"This is Ibani, Master Sheotar," Baze says, bowing his head in respect of the woman. "She's ours."

Master Sheotar takes one look at the two men, and then glances to Ibani. She sighs. "I'll have you three moved to a larger room. Welcome, Ibani."

"Thank you, Master Sheotar." Chirrut's smile is beaming, if not entirely aimed in the correct direction. He keeps a hand on Ibani's shoulder, steadfast and steadying. He bends down to her ear level, still grinning.

"She's one sneaky lady, keep an eye on her - I can't."

Thankfully, Master Sheotar picked up on the fact that Baze and Chirrut were both speaking Basic, and switched from Jedhan accordingly. Baze and Chirrut's accents are more pronounced than they are in the bar, having to actually speak Basic rather than just be translated into it.

"You're quite welcome, Master Imwe," Master Sheotar says, with a knowing look that he can probably feel through the Force. "Introduce her to the kitchens, won't you? She looks underfed. And don't forget about the infirmary--the techs will want to check her out."

"Yes, Master Sheotar," Baze says. "With pleasure."

Baze leads their little party down stone corridors thrumming with Guardians and acolytes to the kitchens, his favorite part of the temple. He releases Ibani's hand after guiding her to a stool, and putters about gathering crackers, cheese, and heavily spiced apple rings.

"What do you think of the temple so far, Ibani?"

"Basic is not our native tongue." Chirrut explains as he sets about making tea, and is subsequently interrupted from making a mess of the tea things and handed a pot of prepared tea. "Baze, tea? It's Chav, don't make that face at me, as if I would offer you the other stuff."

From: [personal profile] iprotectyou
"How can you even tell that I'm pulling a face?" Baze says, making the face in question. "It's like you know me. And yes, please, tea would be wonderful."

He sets the food before Ibani and plucks up an apple ring to munch on. "We speak Jedhan, as this is the moon Jedha. The city is NiJedha, and the planet the moon orbits is NaJedha. As you can tell, we're very creative with names. You can learn to speak Jedhan, too."

"I'm sure you will do well - but don't worry if it takes some time. We get a few off-world initiates every year, so you won't stand out." He mentions casually, because he can remember stressing about trying to remember a routine everyone else seemed to consider second nature. Chirrut brings over the pot of tea, and pours it out dutifully when an acolyte brings mugs for everyone.

Baze cradles his cup of chav in his hands, leaning on his elbows on the counter. Watching Ibani eat is a pleasure; she eats with enviable gusto, and it always brings a smile to his lips.

"After you're done eating, we'll head to the infirmary, like Master Sheotar said," Baze says, beaming at her. "I'm sorry to tell you this, but you'll have to have some shots with a small needle. They're vaccines, which is medicine to prevent you from getting sick."

"They scare me." More he intensely doesn't like them, and puts up with them under protest. "Baze protects me." He explains as he loads up his plate with food and tucks in.

From: [personal profile] iprotectyou
Baze laughs, shaking his head. "See, if Chirrut Imwe is scared of things at fifty-two, you can be scared of things at however old you are, Ibani," he says, raising his mug to her before taking a sip. "Which reminds me: the infirmary tech should be able to tell us how old you are. Would you like to know?"

idontneedluck: (I am one with the force)
From: [personal profile] idontneedluck
"They love to remind me how old I am." Chirrut notes, dryness like the Jedhan desert slipping into his tone. "I'm sure they will be more than happy to tell you as well."

Hopefully for different reasons, though he suspects there will be a lot of worrisome 'for her age' commentary until they get her weight up.

"Have you picked a birthday yet?" Baze says, nursing his tea. Chav has never been his favorite, but it's loads better than that nasty Tarine stuff. "Chirrut and I share a birthday, because he couldn't remember his either. His memory is so poor, you see. So poor, indeed. It's sad."

"Of course you do! You see, they're big on celebrating birthdays around here, and they just don't know what to do without one. So it's really better to give them something to do. So much nagging if you don't." Chirrut advises, making cheese and apple sandwiches with his crackers.

Ibani pulled the joke. Baze is so proud. He offers her an appreciative snicker and steals an apple ring from Chirrut's plate.

"We can celebrate any day you like," Baze says, beaming at her over his tea. "Also, did you want to take our names, or make up a last name of your own?"

.... Chirrut's not crying, you're crying. Shut up.

"That, we can do." If his voice is rougher than usual... that's fine. That's just fine. "Happy Birthday, Ibani Imwe-Malbus. Or would that be Malbus-Imwe?"
