nothing compares to the emptiness we both share
Paquin's day had started off fairly normal. She had done her usual morning routine before heading to the medical wing of the base. Everything was going smoothly until General Hux and one of the Knights of Ren had gone on a mission. Everyone who worked directly under Hux seemed lost without him commanding their every move. It wasn't until her break that everything seemed to become more chaotic.
She had taken a break from doing absolutely nothing in the medical wing, deciding to take a stroll outside of her heavily sterilized work area. She had heard from a couple of Stormtroopers' conversation that Kylo Ren was returning, the only warning being that he was about dock aboard the ship.
She had provided medical attention to the man immediately following the destruction of Starkiller Base, but he was unconscious at the time. She'd never spoken to the Knight before and she had no desire to either. From what she's heard of him, he was terrifying.
It wasn't until a few hours after landing on the planet that Hux and his companion finally reached the people they were to talk with. The whole mission was about making a deal with the planet, ambassadors coming from major cities to negotiate the details. The original details they had discussed were that the planet woulds supply technology and basic supplies, and in return no battles would occur on the planet. It certainly wasn't the greatest offer, but it's what the First Order needed at that moment in time.
Hux saw it fit that he bring along a Knight of Ren, to stand in for Kylo Ren, who was off completing his training at the moment. The Knights have had a prominent role in the rebuilding of the First Order since Starkiller Base, especially in the battle aspect of things, much to Hux's displeasure. Although he certainly tolerated the other Knights a lot better than Kylo Ren, he'd still prefer not having them around at all. But he couldn't ignore orders from Snoke.
"I sure hope you'll behave more civilized than your master." He hissed to the Knight beside him as they settled into a room in which negotiations would be taking place.
