Order 66. Another Side, Another Story – Chapter 5. Coruscant Exodus, Part 2

Chapter 5. Coruscant Exodus

Part 2. Connected

I think we lost them,” Bultar said through the comm. system as her damaged Delta-7 Aethersprite-class starfighter lowered speed.

Vhiran checked his radar, sensed the area, then nodded. “We lost them,” he replied. “Just had to fly right into a blockade and get swarmed by enemy fighters,” he sighed. “R3, what’s the damage?”

The astromech droid in the back ran a quick check through the systems and beeped.

I see,” Vhiran replied. “Sublight engines still working?”

Worried beeps came in reply.

Then that is a risk I must take,” Ashukahwa said grimly. “Bultar, my sublight engines are damaged, but still working. And apart from the light damage to its hull my Aethersprite’s in flyable condition. How’s yours doing?”

Pretty bad. Shields down, heavy hull damage, overheated lasers.” She looked outside at the left wing. “And one of my wings looks like it can fall off at any time,” she sighed. “I’ll be glad if this thing makes it Cato Neimoidia in one piece. But on the bright side, my eng…” At that moment Bultar’s starfighter took a dive. “Vhiran!” a faint scream was hard through Vhiran’s comm system.

Bultar, what’s wrong?!” Vhiran called out worried. No reply came for several moments. “Bultar!” Vhiran called again as the Bultar’s Aethersprite got back on course.

I’m ok, I think,” Bultar’s faint voice finally said.

What happened?”

I felt really weak all of a sudden. Still do,” she replied. “I think, Nillanthir, is in trouble. And because of the connection, I felt it too. We have to go back.”

Vhiran shook his head. “Too dangerous. Numerous clone forces on the surface and in the state our fighters are in I don’t give them as much chance of getting through the blockade without being blown to space dust.”

We have to help. Anything that happens to either of us affects the other as well.”

Then it certainly wouldn’t do him any good if you got yourself killed while getting to the surface,” Vhiran said. “If we had a chance we’d go there, but we haven’t.” He bit his lip. “But don’t worry. I know Nillanthir. He’s strong enough to get out of there alive and well. He’ll be fine,” he said in an assuring tone. “And I’ll make sure you’ll be as well,” he added.

Bultar smiled faintly. “Yeah… Thanks…,” she mumbled and wiped the cold sweat of her forehead. After being quiet for a bit she said, “Off to Cato Neimoida then?”

You said it.” Vhiran nodded. “R3, give me beep when those sublight engines are about to blow,” he laughed, making an attempt to break the darkened mood that hung over them.

The droid beeped in affirmation.

Alright then,” Bultar said. “Let’s go. Master Koon’s probably waiting for us.”

Vhiran nodded. Only a moment later, the two nearly wrecked Jedi Starfighters set off to their plotted course.

Nillanthir could feel Bultar’s strength returning along with his own. He now had the strength to regain consciousness once more. It took a toll on him. Now he had made it so both Jordan and Bultar survived, but at the deadliest price. If one died all others would likely follow. Nillanthir knew the risk but he also knew he had to save them as well. As he opened his eyes he looked and saw that Master Jordan, Nor-Ca and Amakusa were all standing over him, concerned for his safety. “So,” Nillanthir said “Shall we leave? We have to find a safe haven before we decide what to do.” He then got up and nearly fell over again but Nor-Ca was quick and held him up.

Are you sure you can fly?” said Jordan.

I’m sure,” Nillanthir said in reply. “But for now it is important that we get out of here. I sense Nienna and Churro coming back to Coruscant. We have to go out and get to them before the clones do.”

Introducing Order 66. Another Side, Another Story


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! ^_^
