Mara remembered how Jaina had been. That was when they had parted ways as master and apprentice. But Jacen had a point, perhaps she had been brought here to help heal her family, to take care of them. There was no doubt in her mind that if she didn't do just that, Leia would show up and kick her ass for not doing it. And in the absence of Luke and Ben, Mara needed to take care of someone, to look after someone. It was her nature to take care of those she cared about. Of course, her definition of taking care of people could sometimes border on being overprotective, but she would rather be safe than sorry. "Perhaps it is, and I will do everything I can to help her." She didn't exactly need to put that sentiment into words, she knew Jacen would know she'd do it anyway.
"Of course, I would like the chance to get to know them. So do not worry, I will not let our history keep me from doing so." Mara would reach out to them, wanting to get to know them, and she could keep her issues with Jacen separate. What was between her and Jacen was just that, between the two of them and no one else. And she would look after her family, and that included Tenel Ka and Allana. Once she'd properly adjusted to this place and the fact that Jacen was here, she was going to make an effort to do whatever she could for her family.
This discussion had been beyond difficult for Mara, but it had been necessary for them to have it. And oh it was difficult to keep herself from letting Jacen see the storm of emotions she had swirling under the surface. The fear, the anger, the betrayal, and many others she couldn't put a name to. She kept herself calm, knowing later she could let herself express the emotions when Jaina had gone to sleep. This wasn't something she was yet prepared to talk about with anyone other than Jacen. "Yes, we can. Given time, I think we both will make that adjustment. I will see you around, Jacen." She watched him as he walked away, not having it within her to say it was good to see him because for the most part, it wasn't. She was relieved that he wasn't so dark currently, but that was different from being glad. Once he was out of sight, she drew in a deep breath, then began making her way back to Jaina's apartment. She would then attempt to meditate, but she had a feeling it wouldn't work. But she would at least try.
