With the ships detection counter measures now working perfectly, R4 was confident in landing the ship without being noticed. It wasn't that the counter measures that the Jedi Master had installed made the ship invisible, but rather extremely uninteresting. Every signal, every scan, made the ship look like a simple transport without even any cargo worth stealing. While R4 didn't understand the wisdom of such measures in comparison to a finely tuned clacking device, but he couldn't deny its effectiveness. The organics seemed programmed to fall for such a deception.

After the ship landed in the private bay, R4 noticed the organics seemed distracted. No one even looked in the direction of the ship. It would seem that Master Vallen was using his skills to make sure the mission went without a hitch as per usual. Another reason to respect his Master, maybe not all organics were useless after all.

"Thank you," Marck said with a smirk at Lukas's compliment. He didn't exactly enjoy the idea of imposing his will on others but he was proud of the fact that his actions had made their escape possible without any blood shed. He could have easily gotten them all to his ship and wiped out every last one of the bounty hunters with his lightsaber. They were not overly skilled or organised and no match for a Jedi Master with Marck's skill. They had proven that back at the safe house. Such a choice though would have killed many people including innocent bystanders, and Marck was grateful that Lukas had considered a different course of action.

"Lets get out of here!' Marck called to R4 as they boarded the ship. He was grateful to finally be back onboard and heading away from any more 'adventure' rather than having Lukas want to be dropped off to protect the Jedi from the ramifications of Marck's choice to help his boyfriend. With the current rouse the Jedi were protected and hopefully the Black Sun would lose interest in the Dantes men.

"Thanks R4" Marck said as he joined the droid on the bridge. "When it is safe to do so please make the jump to Chandrila.' Marck thought about sending a message to the Jedi Order to inform them of his movements but decided to wait for now, even an encoded message could be broken and alert the Black Sun not only of who they were but also that he had fooled them with his mental illusion.

"Whoo!"

Lukas sagged into a chair after making sure his father's gurney was secured. He let his head fall back with relief that this had worked! Lukas mused that, upon arrival at Chandrila, he would get separated from his father all over again as he was treated and as Lukas gave his debrief, but that was the nature of their line of work. He just wondered if and when he'd see him again?

"It's fine," he said more to himself than anybody. "Mission 'complished."

As Marck made his way back to where Lukas had sat down he smiled seeing him finally relaxing. Even though he could feel his 'trepidation?' about the uncertainty of the future with his father he could also feel the relief. Lukas himself even confirmed it when he spoke to the room unaware that Marck was close enough to hear him.

Making his way quietly behind Lukas he softly reached down and began to massage and rub Lukas's shoulders. He had been carrying around the weight of this search from the moment they had met and he wanted to help his lover to relax. As he massaged with a medium to low amount of pressure, he began to release a small amount of healing energy as well, hoping to wash away and stiffness and soreness he might have collected since arriving on Tatooine. Even though it wasn't that relatively long ago it already felt like ages to the Jedi Master, and he had to think Lukas felt the same way given all they had experienced.

"So," Marck began as he leaned over and planned a kiss on Lukas's cheek. "Since R4 can handle the flying and we seem to be out of danger for the moment, what would you like to do before we reach Chandrila? We could retreat to my master bedroom to sleep or other things, or I could wake your Dad so you can spend a little time with him before the craziness that is bound to come with reaching Chandrila sets in?" Marck of course had his own ideas of what he would like to do but he wanted to put Lukas's desires and needs well before his own.

Lukas closed his eyes and groaned quietly, savoring the attention, even though he felt a little guilty for it - Marck had been just as involved in this mission, at least since finding him on Tatooine! - so he had to be exhausted too.

"Well... he oughta wait to recover fully an' have his talk with NRIS," Lukas admitted, putting the job over the family relations, just as Zatara would have done were the situation reversed. "It's enough just knowing he's out of danger. Thanks to you."

Marck smiled at Lukas's groan, glad to finally feel him relax. While they were both tired and Marck had expended a great deal of energy already since his arrival on Tatooine and especially in the escape at the space port, he wanted nothing more to have Lukas relax and feel better. He could feel the stress of the situation in the air and wanted to bring comfort to his boyfriend. "For the mission," Marck said understanding his priorities in this situation.

"So to the bedroom them," Marck smirked hoping to help bring a smile to Lukas's face. "I'm sure we can keep busy until we arrive, or get some sleep."

Marck had thought about mentioning his reveling of his association with the NRIS, Marck had already worked that out but he was glad that Lukas wasn't hiding the fact anymore. Hopefully he wasn't going to get in trouble with his bosses for confirming his identity to him. Still as a member of the Jedi High Council he had a great deal of influence and access to Jedi Intelligence information as well so it wouldn't have been hard to learn anything on his own. It was going to be an interesting balance to keep their jobs and personal life separate but Marck was still looking forward to it.
