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

Chapter 3. Heart of Fire

Part 3. Clarity

Everybody in the cave was asleep, save for one of the youngest among them. With her arms wrapped around her knees, Shamila sat upright in a corner of the cave and looked around at the sleeping Jedi. She yawned. Although she was tired, she had trouble sleeping as she thought of all that had happened, in what had seemed like an eternity but in fact had only been ten days. Master Loria’s death at the hands of the Separatists, then a week later this Order 66, the declaration to purge all Jedi from the galaxy. All of a sudden she had been presented a new Master and before she knew she had made a journey from Talus to Cato Neimoida and all the way to Zaloriis in a mere three days! Only now did she realize how hard the travel had actually been for her, even with her years of intense Jedi training. And then, just when she thought she had seen everything, he appeared. The feelings she felt ever since their meeting less than half a day ago were unlike she had ever experienced and although they made her feel warm inside, she couldn’t help but somehow feeling scared and uncertain. Shamila sighed and stood up. Careful not to wake the others she quickly grabbed her short lightsaber from the floor, put her hood over her head and tiptoed out of the cave.

Outside she closed her eyes when greeted by a small gust of wind suddenly blowing in her face. Upon opening them again she could see a lone figure sitting in the distance. Strengthening her eyesight Shamila looked closer and gulped as she could now distinguish a single wing on the person’s shoulder. She started shaking softly and as she clipped her lightsaber to her sash and turned around to run back to the cave she heard a soft thud next to her. Looking in the sand she could see a small sack that had fallen from her sash. A shiny, red glowing stone stuck half out. Shamila quickly picked up the stone from the sack and held it carefully with both her hands. This was the stone Master Loria had received from her Master, a Kiffar from Kiffu, when she was a Padawan and had later passed on to her own Padawan. On Kiffu, as Master Loria had told her apprentice, it was tradition to give such a stone, called a Heart of Fire, to a person you loved or cared about very much. Shamila had always kept it as her most cherished possession. A sparkle appeared in her dark eyes as she looked at the stone in her hands and then over her shoulder to Nillanthir. So, is this what these strange feelings mean? Should I… She swallowed, unsure of what to do for a moment. Wasn’t this wrong for a Jedi? But then she suddenly made a firm nod and decided. Yes! She took a deep breath, turned around again and, now holding the stone close to her in the opened palm of her hand, she started walking until she stood next to Nillanthir. Not really knowing what to say, she just shortly said, “Hey,” and smiled shyly at the one-winged Jedi Knight at her side.

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! ^_^
