Between the Conclaves – 3. Dantooine: Ghosts from the Past, Part 5

3. Dantooine: Ghosts from the Past

Part 5

Vhiran looked at her questioningly. “But I thought you said there was no…”

“There wasn’t, not from my approaching death at least,” Tha’ci interrupted. “I sat down on my knees and closed my eyes. And just before he struck me down, I let my soul leave my body.”

The Jedi Knight’s eyes widened. “Then, if you can do that, your power must be, incredible. Yet, Bane managed to defeat you.”

“Yes, he did. Unfortunately. And yes, they did say my power was certainly something to be reckoned with,” she chuckled and crossed her arms. “But that single ability is not a sign of my power.” She smirked as Vhiran again looked at her puzzled. “You seem like a knowledgeable young man. Do you know what Travellers are?” she asked.

Vhiran placed his hand on his chin and rubbed slightly through his beard as he thought. “I’ve, heard of them,” he finally replied. “Are Travellers not those Force sensitives with the inborn ability to detach their soul and body whenever they wish and then enter another body, and, who are said to be immortal?” His eyes widened even further. “Then you…”

“That is correct.” Tha’ci nodded. “Those who could make their soul ‘travel’ at will, if you would. And I am indeed one of those Travellers, born with that ability. What most people don’t know, however, is that a Traveller’s soul can enter more than just living bodies.” She inclined her head to the crystal in Vhiran’s hand.

Vhiran looked at it for a moment, then nodded. “This crystal,” he said softly.

Tha’ci nodded again. “It was there that I hid, a place where even someone as mighty as Bane could not hope to find me. This, however, had one major drawback I had not thought of that day. You see, a Traveller’s soul may enter lifeless objects, but they cannot leave them at will. The object must come in contact with a life form if the soul inside is to get out. For me, that did not happen for a thousand years, until you came along, and took hold of the crystal.”

She waited for a while as she watched Vhiran think through what she had told him. “Now that you know who I am and how I got here. How about you tell me about yourself now?” She grinned at him.

“Of course.” Vhiran replied. “I am Vhiran Ashukahwa, a Jedi Knight.”

“Ah, a Jedi Knight.” Tha’ci said dryly before Vhiran could continue. “So the Order is still alive then? I must say I am quite, surprised they managed this long.”

The young Knight shook his head sadly. “I’m afraid the Jedi Order lies shattered. The sudden onslaught staged by the Sith and the Empire was utterly ruthless and effective. Many of my fellow Jedi did not survive,” he sighed sadly, then looked up with a more determined look. “There are survivors, though, some I know personally. And even amongst the enemy’s own ranks there are those not satisfied with the current state of the Galaxy. I don’t think it will be long before the time to fight back arrives.”

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! ^_^
