Between the Conclaves – 5. Eriadu, Part 2

5. Eriadu

Part 2

The constant silence was broken by the sound of running footsteps on the concrete streets and through the rain puddles. She watched a group of four clone troopers running past. Then, almost impossible to see for the untrained eye, a blue and brown blur passed by, into an alley and up the wall of a smaller building. For a moment the Force presence was as close as it could possibly be, then it slowly faded again. Bultar’s eyes widened. It’s him! She readied herself to follow the figure, but stopped as one of the clone troopers halted in his tracks.

“Sir!” the trooper at the back of the group, bearing yellow markings on his armour, called to the one in the front. With his rifle in front of him he carefully looked around the area.

“What is it, lieutenant?” the patrol leader asked and gestured the others to stop.

Immediately Bultar placed herself flat against the nearest wall. Did they see me? Her hand quickly reached for her lightsaber.

“I thought I saw something, sir!” the lieutenant replied. “I think it was our target.”

“Are you sure?”

Not completely, sir,” the trooper said hesitantly. “It was hard to distinguish what exactly it was. But something did just pass us from behind. It was really fast, and about his size.”

“Which way?”

“There, sir.” The lieutenant moved his rifle up, pointing above one of the broader alleys, and inclined his head.

“Up there, huh?” The commander looked up for a moment. “Heh, that’s like him alright.” He shook his head and laughed then gestured to the alley. “Well, what are you standing there for? Move out!”

“Yes, sir!” the three others said as one, running after their commander.

Before she was able to react, the patrol had already moved out of sight. Without hesitation Bultar started running, following the sounds of their footsteps, careful to keep distance between them, but quick enough to keep up with their pace. She could not lose them! They knew where he was. They would lead her to him. But what if they find him? What will happen? With a sigh she shook her head. She had always known the time would come for her to take a life. Many times over she had been told: ‘if you are not prepared to take a life, you should not carry a weapon’. She carried a weapon, and while its main purpose was to protect, at the same time there were few weapons as lethal as this one, the trademark weapon of the Jedi: the lightsaber. She did not like it, even felt disgusted at the thought of doing it, destroying another’s life. Always had she successfully done whatever she could to prevent it, and she would not cease doing so, but, when the time would come, when there would be no other way out, she would be prepared. There was too much at stake now not to be.

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! ^_^
