Between the Conclaves – 3. Dantooine: Ghosts from the Past, Part 3

3. Dantooine: Ghosts from the Past

Part 3

The image faded. Slowly the view of the cave returned as Vhiran opened his eyes again. He kept his eyes fixed on the crystal formation before him, thinking of the vision. What did it mean? What happened there? The mysterious woman, it looked like she had attacked and killed the Bodisei man with a combination of her lightknifes and strange flames. And then she had manipulated the flames and struck them against a crystal, or, into the crystal? Then, was this crystal before him the same the woman had used to, to store the flames? Vhiran stretched his arm toward the formation. He could feel the power emanating much stronger now, and it kept growing. Should I do this­? What if it is too strong for me? He closed his eyes, then nodded firmly and moved his hand to the crystal. A great force surged into his body the moment he touched it. He began trembling, lightly at first, but heavier with every passing moment. Then it overwhelmed him. He closed his eyes and as he held onto the crystal he was flung back and landed several meters away. Motionless he lied on the floor, his eyes shut, feeling the crystal in his hand. Had it been chaotic a moment before, now everything was calm. What happened?

“That’s quite a piece of craftsmanship,” a familiar voice suddenly sounded. “Haven’t seen a weapon of this quality for a long time.”

Vhiran opened his eyes wide. Everywhere he was surrounded by light, bright but not painful to his eyes. It somehow made him feel, peaceful. He sat upright and looked around.

“Over here,” the voice sounded again.

The Jedi Knight looked in front of him and stared in utter surprise the moment he saw its source. It was the woman from his vision! She looked exactly the same as he had seen her there, only this time she did not wear the mask and her face was completely visible, and she seemed, transparent. Vhiran was uncertain what to think.

“Thank you, young man.” The woman moved her look from the lightknife hilt to Vhiran and made a short bow. “Thank you for getting me out of there.” She nodded as she saw Vhiran’s questioning look and replied his unasked question. “Out of the crystal. My soul has been trapped in there for, quite some time now I believe. Your touching it gave me the possibility to get out and enter a, safer host.”

Vhiran’s eyes widened again. “Are you, in my body?!”

The woman chuckled. “I don’t normally, sneak into people like this, but I had to get out of there after all this time. Don’t worry, I shall get out in a moment. But do fill me in on the situation we’re in. When inside a crystal for a while one tends to lose track of time.”

Vhiran kept silent for a while, looking at the ground. “In short,” he began “The Republic has fallen. The Empire now controls the Galaxy, with the Sith at the helm.”

The woman looked surprised by the news. “How long is this going on now?” she asked after pondering on the young man’s words.

“Slightly over a month now,” Vhiran replied shortly.

She nodded. “So, Lord Hoth has been defeated then. Kaan and the Brotherhood have been victorious. That is, tragic news you br…”

The Jedi shook his head. “The Brotherhood of Darkness was destroyed at Ruusan, almost a thousand years ago,” he interrupted. “The Republic had survived through the millennium that followed. But, that changed a short while ago.”

“A, a thousand years?!” Now it was the woman’s turn to look shocked. “Looks like I’ve been in there longer than I thought.”

Vhiran nodded. “So it seems.” Both remained completely silent, then Vhiran looked up again. “Who are you?” he suddenly asked.

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! ^_^
