Between the Conclaves – 1. Nar Shaddaa, Part 5

1. Nar Shaddaa

Part 5

Demo looked around at the other troopers and gave a nod to Flash. “KE’SUSH!” he yelled. Immediately he and the others stood at attention and saluted. “The Empire may have turned against you, but we have not,” he began.

“Tell us what to do, general and we will do so,” Flash added.

Vhiran nodded approvingly at the still unwavering loyalty of the men he had commanded and befriended. “At ease, my friends.” He turned to Flash. “All you need to do now is stay alive, captain,” he said. “And wait until I contact you again.”

Flash saluted. “Sir, yes sir!”

“Flash, do you know where the others are?” Ashukahwa asked.

“Ghost’s stationed on Dantooine, general. And Blackout’s overseeing the garrison that is being set up here on Nar Shaddaa.”

“Contact them at the first possibility you have and give them the orders I just gave you.”

“Understood, sir.” The captain nodded. “So, what will you be doing in the meanwhile?”

“Getting off this moon first. I take it they know we’re here, since you’ve been looking for us.”

Flash nodded. “They do. General, please stay in your hideout a little longer. I’ll have Blackout arrange you and your friends a ride to Dantooine and tell Ghost you’re coming. And until you’re safely away, I‘ll declare this area off-limits to all Imperial personnel.”

“Thank you, my friend.” Vhiran bowed. “Be prepared. Next time we meet will be the time for retaliation.” He then took the captain’s hand and both clenched their hands into fists. “Darasuum kote!” Vhiran said.

“Darasuum kote!” Flash repeated in reply. He looked at the other troopers and raised his fist in the air. “DARASUUM KOTE!” he called out.

The voices of the troopers calling out the motto of the Grand Army of the Republic as one sounded throughout the area. Although not knowing the meaning of the words, Shamila looked in amazement at what happened. The clones that had hunted them down only moments ago now swore loyalty to them. And they would be far from the last. She knew, while seeing the spark in her Master’s eyes as he looked proudly at the soldiers enthusiastically singing a war chant and waving their blasters in the air, the tides had finally turned. The fate of the Empire had been sealed.

Mando’a Glossary
Ke’sush! (Keh-SOOSH) – Attention! (the army command)
Darasuum Kote (Da-RAH-soom KOH-tay) – Eternal Glory (motto of the Grand Army of the Republic)

Introducing Between the Conclaves


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! ^_^
