With the weight of his trusty bowcaster slung over one shoulder, Chewbacca kept up his steady pace across the moss-covered walkways. He could just make out the rustling of the trees up ahead where the shuttle had settled down and steam was now billowing out to equalize the pressure.

Chewbacca slowed and came to a halt just before the opening to the platform itself. The rest of the Wookiee entourage could be heard coming up behind him, their heavy footsteps causing the wood planks to creak beneath their feet. Chewie mentally winced. The slightest sound could blow their cover to the new intruders.

A soft, but stern warning uttered from deep within his throat as the rest of the group gathered around. A swipe of his arm indicated that he would move forward as they provide cover. A simultaneous nod of their shaggy heads offered the reassurance Chewie was looking for. With a satisfied grunt, he moved forward toward the platform.

The gangplank was just lowering as Chewie squatted down behind a large bush at the opening to the platform. Narrowing his eyes, the Wookiee raised his bowcaster and took aim, ready to fire at whatever set foot on their home soil.

A few angonizing minutes passed before a lone, shadow-laden figure appeared at the opening. Ah, the prey had finally arrived.

Standing perfectly still on the boarding ramp, David looked round. There was a disturbing silence engulfing the entire area, with only the humming and chirping of the indigenous life present. Still, he was sure there was someone watching him, as the nearby Wookies couldn't have missed his landing.

Whether they would greet him with hostility or kindness however, was a looming question in his mind. Hunt hoped he had come down near to Chewbacca, as at least then he would have a chance of convincing them that his intentions were purely peaceful.

Looking around, he heard a branch snapping in some nearby bushes away to his left. A weapon bolt emerged from the wood and David did a diving forward roll off the ramp, the shot striking where he was standing a few moments before.

Landing hard, he scampered under the ramp quickly and took cover. Convinced it was Wookies shooting at him, and hoping that Chewbacca would be among them, David shouted out from the safety of his hastily chosen cover.

"Hold fire, friendlies!"

Chewie's bowcaster was still smoking when he heard the human voice call out. He was preparing for another round when he instantly fell silent, ceasing all movement and relying on the scent of his nose. He did not sense any imminent danger coming from the human and after a moment, took a cautious step forward.

Cradling the bowcaster in his arms in case it was needed, Chewbacca wandered out into the clearing of the landing platform. He stopped before the man and cocked his head slightly to the side, sizing him up and taking in his features. He did not seem to be carrying any weapons and Chewie understood humans well enough to see the fear in this one's eyes. He spoke truth.

Moving the bowcaster to his shoulder, the mightly Wookiee waved one of his musclar arms back toward the path he had come with a loud grunt. Soon, the group of Wookiees he had been with earlier emerged from the brush to join Chewie and the newcomer.

Focusing his gaze back onto the human, Chewie took another step closer. ["Who are you and why are you here, young one?"] he moaned softly in Shyriiwook.

Suddenly the bushes fell silent. David half expected the unseen force would simply respond by taking careful aim and eliminating him. No shots came. Lying prone on the ground under the boarding ramp, Hunt looked up to wait for them to take any kind of action, beads of sweat running down his forehead.

It wasnt long before the void that was the clearing was disturbed by a cautious Wookie carefully stepping out and edging towards the centre of the clearing. Complete with weapon. Not the best sign. Nevertheless things couldn't exactly get any worse right now, he was already miserable. Being shot by a Wookie wouldn't exactly add to his problems, more take them away.

Hunt stood up and approached the Wookie, his hands raised to signify that he was not armed. Stopping a few metres from the towering creature, it took a few moments before the Wookie shouldered his weapon and summoned the others of his group out of the woods, who emerged quickly.

The moaning of the Wookie language caught him off guard as he watched the native step forward. What is your name... and why are you here... okay got that part. Something about being old... okay not got that.

Feeling the need to break the silence, David decided to speak up hoping he'd translated that right. Then it dawned on him. This was Chewbacca...

"Chewbacca?" His face lit up. "Im... David Hunt, I came here looking for you, actually."

Chewbacca cocked his head to the side and took the sight of the young man in. In a way, his scent did smell familiar. Yes, he definitely came across this human male before. The name David Hunt, however, did not sound as famililar.

The Wookiee's blue eyes softened as he moaned in response. ["Looking for me?"] His tone hardened as the thought of something bad happening crossed his mind. Was he a messenger to tell him that something happened to his cub and Lady Solo or his own family? ["What exactly can I do for you?"]

More moaning ensued as David finished his sentence. He tried to catch most of what was said, which he believed he was successful at doing. "Im trying to rejoin the Alliance. I heard you were here so I tracked you down rather than try to return to Tatooine, as I dont think im liked around Alliance HQ anymore..."

A short series of gutteral moans escaped the Wookiee's mouth in the equivelant of a laugh. His blue eyes twinkled in the mid-morning sun as they studied the human before him. ["Not welcomed?"] Another round of short giggles cut off his speech. ["I highly doubt that, young one. I've been with the Alliance long enough to know that you will always be welcomed."]

Chewbacca sniffed the air for a moment before turning back to the young man standing before him. ["You chose a far off place to join up, but I am willing to help."] He motioned to the man with one furry arm and began to walk back toward the entourage of Wookiees gathered. ["But I hope you don't mind if we take care of a little something first."]

Hunt listened carefully at the replies, and was very touched to hear what was said. He hoped that it was true of the Alliance. He followed Chewbacca over to the group of Wookies who had gathered behind. "No, not at all. If I can be of any help..."
