Order 66. Another Side, Another Story – Act II: Chapter 3. Heart of Fire, Part 2

Chapter 3. Heart of Fire

Part 2. Uncertainty

Jordan hopped into his ship, an abandoned ARC-170 starfighter he took from his old ship’s crash site. His little astromech droid had been severely damaged in the Silver Horn’s crash, but it had survived and cheerfully beeped as Jordan approached.

It’s time, R5. We’re heading back for Coruscant.”

Bwoooop…,” R5 let out an unsure sound.

Yes, I know it is,” The Jedi Master sighed. “Don’t you worry. I’ll be careful, alright.”

Beep beep breeep!” The droid’s top shoved open. With a hissing sound, two lightsabers popped out and landed into Jordan’s hands.

I don’t know what I would have done without you, R5.” With a grin Jordan attached the spare sabers to his belt. “Right, let’s go then.”

R5, turn off auto pilot,” Jordan said to his loyal astromech as he saw the asteroid field near Coruscant up ahead, and took the controls.

Beep BEEP BOOP BWEEEEP!” the little droid beeped in panic.

Clone starfighters, hmm? Just perfect. How many on the scanners?”

Dooooow deep.”

Forty-three? Well, I’m glad my pilot skills have not turned rusty.” Jordan began flying all over the asteroid field, dodging every shot. He made his flying appear random, which seemed to worked. Explosions were everywhere, shards of rock spraying all around. “I’ll take us closer to the planet.” Using the Force, Jordan took a dive and get into Coruscant’s atmosphere. “I think we lost them. R5. Take us in and land in the lower city.”

Nillanthir stepped back into the cave, carrying a few nerfs that he hunted over his left shoulder. He used his wing to provide shelter over his kills to prevent them from expiring quickly. As he brought them into the caves and small beads of sweat covered his forehead, he forgot what it was like to hunt food for his adopted family let alone bigger numbers such as the group that was with him in the caves. He was able to prepare the meat in time before the sun went down. Sometimes he missed this when he was in the Jedi Temple.

It was deep in the night, but Nillanthir couldn’t sleep. He still couldn’t sleep ever since the attack on the Temple. He nearly died time and time again and he felt guilty for not being able to save all the other Jedi. He had to get out of the caves. The feelings of all the peaceful aura of the others sleeping irritated him slightly. He wanted to have at least one night of decent sleep. He looked over at Vhiran with Bultar cuddling up to him in her sleep. His heart was both warm and aching. He missed that feeling of being with someone. He couldn’t take it anymore, he got up and, using the skills he picked up from the Onimaru Group, sneaked outside to try and avoid waking the others.

He wandered around trying to lose the thoughts of guilt in his mind. He knew he couldn’t do anything to save them, but he knew something like that was going to happen. He couldn’t help but feel partially responsible. The survivors would be hunted down by Skywalker and Palpatine and it was up to him now to protect the Jedi that were now sleeping in the caves. He looked up at the two moons. He missed his home planet. It truly did have some beautiful sites. Nillanthir sat down in the sand and was lost in thought.

I wish I could have done more,” Nillanthir said to himself.

Don’t blame yourself, my Master. You know you could not have done more than you already did,” Nor-Ca spoke through the Force in Nillanthir’s mind. And don’t worry about Jordan. If he will come to Coruscant, I will watch over him without that he will know it. Be strong and have hope, and the Light will come back.”

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! ^_^
