“This really is a night full of Luke Skywalker stories,” marveled G’kolu after Teal and Flux had explained the situation.

“It’s the Tide,” said Flux confidently. “The Tide brought us all together tonight around Luke Skywalker.”

“I don’t know about all this mumbo jumbo about the Tide,” said Tyra skeptically. “It sounds like the mystical nonsense about the Force—”

“It’s not mystical nonsense,” insisted Flux. “I know you already want to help me, don’t you?”

“We do want to help you,” said Tyra, “but that’s because we’d help anyone who’s trying to make it in this galaxy on their own—”

“TWEE-TWEE. Pfbttt!”

“Sorry about muffling you back there,” Tyra apologized to G2-X. “But even you have to agree that we can’t just let Tuuma chuck someone into space.”

“Dweep-doo. Ooo-thWOO eep-weep-eep.”

“Hey! My hand does not have the chemical signature of vegicus pee!” Tyra sniffed her hand just to be sure. The droid rocked from side to side in mirth.

“Shall we get going?” asked Teal, impatient to get on with Flux’s escape.

“Thbtttttt! Doo-weep. Doo-weep. SKYYYY-waa-kaa-err whoot.”

Tyra’s eyes grew wide. “Wait, you also know a story about Luke Skywalker?”

“I thought droids couldn’t tell stories,” said G’kolu.

“I have to hear this!” said Flux.

“I don’t know binary well enough to understand,” said Teal.

“I’ll translate,” said Tyra. “I’m pretty good with binary since my grandmother used to teach at the acad—used to work with droids a lot before we became scavengers.”

“That would be fantastic,” said Teal and Flux in unison.

“Many idioms in binary have no equivalents in Basic at all, so I can only give you a flavor of it,” said Tyra.

Settling back on his sturdy wheels, the ancient droid began to whistle and beep in a steady, hypnotic stream, and Tyra translated for the others.

“I’ve never met the droid whose story I’m about to tell, but let me repeat to you her words, which have been passed from droid to droid around the galaxy without change….”
