Kaya stared down at the thing in her hand that had suddenly replaced her blaster. She'd been hopping around the galaxy for the last decade, and heard spacers' tall tales in her family's shop ever since she'd been old enough to hold a spanner before that, but she'd never seen anything like this.
Eyes wide, she glanced up at the intruder, then back down at the sweet. She assumed it was a sweet anyway, judging from the smell. Slowly she brought it up and gave it a sniff at closer range. Yup, definitely some kind of sweet. Jedi and Sith could mind trick you, could appear and disappear, but she'd never heard of them being able to do this.
"How-" She looked up at the woman, swallowed, and tried again. "What are you?"
Isabel couldn't hide her smirk as she watched the young woman examine the candy cane. She just kept her arms at her sides. She didn't want to seem like a threat. After the question she waved her hand again and the candy cane was back to being a blaster.
"I'm a genie. Though not your typical kind. Things have evolved a bit over the years. I can use my magic whenever but I do still grant wishes. To an extent."
"Genie?" Kaya shook her head. "I don't know that species. I've never heard of anyone who can do what you just did. Not even in all the stories about the Jedi and the Sith."
She slid her blaster back into its holster seeing how it wasn't going to do her any good anyway. If the woman wanted her dead, she would be.
"It's not a species known in your universe. Though I am technically human just with magical powers." Isabel smiled.
"As I said, my name is Isabel. Along with being a genie, I run a diner in town. Really good food, if I do say so myself."
"A diner." Kaya repeated. A being that had powers Force users could only dream about and she ran a diner. Of course she did, why wouldn't she?
"I'm Kaya." She pointed at a battered and powered down Astromech droid in the corner that had clearly taken a few licks in the struggle to keep the ship operational long enough to land it. "That's Arbie, but I'll have to make repairs on him too before he'll be very talkative."
She must have hit her head harder than she thought because it all had to be a hallucination.
"It's nice to meet you." Isabel offered her hand. "And I'm sure it'll be nice to meet him once he's up and running again." She smiled.
"He's a cantankerous old bucket of bolts but he was part of the family since before I was born." Kaya rubbed a hand over the dome fondly and sighed. The only family she had left.
Isabel nodded, dropping her hand back to her side. "Sounds a bit like Artoo."
"There's droids on this island then?" She hadn't heard of an R2 series astromech but there was always a first time.
Kaya realized she had ignored the outstretched hand and gestured about to indicate her ship. "Sorry. It's been a long day. It's nice to meet you Isabel."
Her hands were filthy from dirt, oil and smoke anyway, so better not to get that all over the other woman.
"Just the one. And I'm not completely sure he's still here." She made a face. She really needed to check on that. Isabel smiled.
"How about taking a break? We can go to the diner. I can make you something to eat. You can come back relaxed and clear headed. We can also get that cut looked at." She motioned toward Kaya's forehead.
"You mean there is a way off after all?" Kaya still wasn't sure she believed the whole 'trapped under a force field' story, let alone beings from other universes since this was probably one big hallucination from hitting her head, but she was playing along for now.
Her stomach growled, reminding her how long it had been since she'd eaten, and she grimaced. "Okay, I guess I could use a bite." She gestured toward the hatch leading into the ship, where a corridor would take them to the boarding ramp. That was independently powered so it should work. How she got Lady Luck landed safely on the ground without actually plowing into the dirt and killing her and Arbie both she hadn't a clue, but she wasn't looking a gift droid over for bad parts.
"The island has sent some people home, but it's not anything we have any control over." Isabel cleared her throat. They had just lost some people after all.
