Order 66. Another Side, Another Story – Chapter 1. Eve of Destruction, Part 2

Chapter 1. Eve of Destruction

Part 2. Knightfall

Behind a pillar in the midst of the hall in the Jedi Temple two figures stood back to back, a young man and woman. The man, clad in a long dark blue robe, had long dark brown hair tied in a tail and a short dark brown ring beard. The woman had straight half long black hair and wore her long Jedi coat over a dark brown leather tunic. The light of their green bladed lightsabers a beacon in the darkness that had engulfed the Temple. From the moment the 501st Legion of Republic clone troopers, headed by a mysterious hooded, lightsaber wielding figure the troopers seemingly referred to as Lord Vader, had marched into Temple they had started to annihilate all Jedi inside. The hall was sown with the corpses of fallen Jedi. The two figures had managed to escape the massacre and now tried to find a way to escape the Temple.

“Vhiran,” the woman whispered. Vhiran moved his steel blue eyes to her. “To the corner over there on my sign,” she continued as she inclined her eyes to a corner of the hall, beneath the balcony. It was covered by a pillar and completely out of range for the clone troopers. “Ready?”

Vhiran looked back in front of him. “Ready when you are, Bultar,” he said, barely audible.

“Now!” Bultar called out. Nearly simultaneously the two started running towards the corner, still back to back deflecting the laser fire as the clones stationed at the balcony opened fire at them. For a moment they stopped and hid behind a pillar as a barrage of laser came down in front of them. Bultar quickly took of her coat and threw it in the opposite direction of which they were heading. She gave Vhiran a small push and the two ran further as the clone troopers first opened fire on the thrown coat, but then shot at the running Jedi again. No matter how small and simple the diversion was, it had bought them enough time to reach the corner in one piece.

Vhiran panted. “We should be safe here for now,” he said.

Bultar nodded. “But it won’t be long before they get here. And if this Vader figure appears I doubt we’ll ever get out of here.”

Vhiran looked around. “The exit isn’t far now,” He said with a hopeful smile, but just as quickly as the smile had appeared, it was replaced by a grim expression. “But they’ll no doubt have troops there as well.” He sighed sadly.

Bultar smiled. “We’ll have to try.”

“Yeah, you’re right.”

“On my sign, run as fast as you can to the exit. Be ready to face a huge number of troopers and…” She paused a bit and sighed. “Be ready to kill.”

Vhiran closed his eyes and nodded. He and Bultar had never in their life killed an opponent and now not only were they most likely forced to kill, but they were to kill those they had fought alongside with. “We’ll make it as quick and painless as possible,” he whispered.

Bultar smiled and nodded. “Yes, let’s do that,” she whispered back.

Vhiran sighed. The exit was so close, yet their chances of survival were slim at most. “Ehm, Bultar?” he suddenly spoke, hesitating. “I, ehm, I had something, to, to tell you,” he continued softly. “In case, in case we won’t get out of here.”

Questioningly Bultar looked back. “Yes?”

A bit shaking, Vhiran closed his eyes for a moment. “I, ehm, I…”

Before he could finish explosives violently tore through the wall behind them and flung the two Jedi meters into the hall. Bultar managed to get up on her knees, her back felt like it was burning. She saw Vhiran moving, trying to get up as well. Only seconds had past since the explosion when the troopers opened fire again. Bultar didn’t hesitate and immediately rolled over to Vhiran. Covering his body with hers, she took the blaster shots that would have otherwise struck the other Jedi. Vhiran looked up and saw his rescuer smiling at him.

“Lie very still and get out of here when they’re gone,” Bultar whispered. “Please make it out of here alive.”

Shocked with what happened in the past seconds Vhiran looked once more at Bultar’s blood covered face, then put his head down and closed his eyes. At the moment Vhiran Ashukahwa sunk into a hibernation trance to escape from the rampaging clone troopers, Bultar Swan felt her life leaving her mangled body and slowly slipped into darkness.

About

Ever since a group of shoes held a birthday party a long, long time ago (though in a galaxy not that far away) a little boy’s appreciation for creation was born. And so, throughout the following years shoes partied, a dinosaur travelled through time, oddly shaped football players went on adventures, a young wanderer became a knight, a comedian rose to godhood, Jedi fought an evil empire, a war between cyborg warlords and human-insect hybrids engulfed the world… The boy had learned how with only words on paper (and from times to time a few pictures) he was able to bring people, places, even entire worlds to life. By now that little boy has reached almost the third decade of his life and his love for telling stories has not ceased. And finally, long after he had planned to, he has decided to share these stories with the world. Whether you are a new or already familiar face: welcome to this little archive of mine! This is a place where I will, finally, actually be sharing my writing with others. It will feature pretty much anything I feel like sharing, both old and new stories, fan-fiction and original content, and probably some non-fiction added in at times. So, if you like reading, writing, stories (or me ^_~), drop by, drop a comment (I can’t promise I’ll get back to you quickly, since I’m horrible at that, but I’ll do my best) and, drop it like it’s hot. … Sorry… ^_^; In any case, I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and I look forward to seeing you around!

Who? Just your average descendant of two sea-faring peoples, recently graduated anthropology Master and aspiring author with a life-long passion for writing.

What? Uhm, human. I think... Also a bit crazy, but in a good way. I think...

Where? A land under the sea, far, far away. Occasionally with my head in the clouds.

Why? Trying to get both my work and my love for writing out there, sharing them with others and getting in touch with fellow writers, artists and other like-minded people.

Hi! ^_^
