Have any of you ever watched Castle? Random question but that and my mystery books got me started on this. Welcome to Haunted: prepare to be scared! Special thanks to Knight Benedicta for reviewing.

Bryanne suddenly realized she was standing face to face with a young woman, who looked as startled as she did. She was about 5'9" with curly brown hair and green eyes.

"Are you okay?" she asked.

Bryanne took a moment get over her shock and then replied, "I'm fine. You scared me!"

"I scared you?" the girl laughed. "Did you make that clanging sound?"

"Yes, I knocked a pen holder off the desk. Who are you and what are you doing here?"

"I'm Del-Tara Canachi, Jedi Knight and I'm here to investigate the disappearance of a young man named Carl."

"I didn't realize that Jedi were sent to help in missing people cases."

"We aren't. But the local people were getting worried about all the people disappearing after going to visit this building. They contacted the Senate and the Senate asked the Council if they had a Jedi to spare."

"And you're the Jedi to spare?"

"Me and my friend."

"There are two of you?"

"Yes. You never told me who you were."

"Oh, sorry. I'm Bryanne. I'm here to investigate the disappearance of a young woman."

"You're with the police?"

"No. My husband is. I'm a free lance detective. This is my most recent case."

"Where's your blaster?"

"I left it in the speeder. A stupid mistake, a rookie mistake."

"I'm glad you did. Otherwise, one of us would be dead."

"I have a feeling it would be me."

"That depends on several variables. You have to allow for reaction time."

"Yes, but I've seen Jedi in action. You do move very fast. Even human Jedi."

"Thanks," Del-Tara said dryly.

"I didn't mean it that way. Look, I might be able to help you with your investigation. I know my way around Corellia. Will you accept my help?"

"I'd love to have you help, but I'd better check with my partner first."

"Of course; shall we find him now?"

"Sure, why not. Hey, you didn't find anything worth noting on your side of the building, did you?"

Bryanne sighed, "Unfortunatly, no. Nothing to help me figure out what happened to the missing people. I hope we find them soon."

"Me too."
