Between the Conclaves – 6. Kessel, Part 2

6. Kessel

Part 2

No way! The Empire knew? Then, did Ghost… No, there’s no way any of the guys in Alpha Squad would betray us. It, just can’t be… Calm down. They probably don’t know anything of the meeting. Vhiran took a deep breath before opening the channel. But, what’s going on then? Just what is an Imperial capital ship doing here?

“Unidentified fighter. Identify yourself and state your business on the double,” the ship’s communications officer ordered. The man’s voice sounded young, inexperienced even. It probably hadn’t been that long since he had graduated from the military academy.

With a bit of help from the Force, this might just work. Here goes. “I am Inspector Darius Vakluu of Imperial Security Operations,” Vhiran said, remembering a Republic security officer he had once encountered on Coruscant, before leaving for his mission to Aargau. “I am under order of Colonel Vak Somoril to inspect the Empire’s spice mines for suspicious activity said to take place there. I demand you let me to the surface immediately!” Vhiran tried to sound as authoritative as he could without overdoing it, strengthening the sound of his voice and emphasizing the strict tone with the Force. He could hear the officer on the other side of the channel gulp. Was it working?

“I, I am terribly sorry, Inspector,” the officer started nervously. “But as of this morning, Coruscant standard time, Lord Vader has declared the planet Kessel completely off-limits to all who have not received permission from him personally. I’m, I’m afraid I cannot let you pass.”

Vader! Just what we needed. Vhiran narrowed his eyes. I’ll have to get to the others as soon as possible then. “You have not been in the navy for very long, have you, boy?!” he bit back at the young officer. “Perhaps you have not heard what I said. I am here under order of Colonel Vak Somoril of the Imperial Security Bureau to …”

“We have not received a message on any such order, mister Vakluu.” This voice was different! A senior officer seemed to have taken over communications. “Also, I find it quite, intriguing to find Inspector Darius Vakluu here in the flesh, while apparently he has been dead for over a month now,” his silky but cold voice sounded. “You may have tricked this brat here, but you cannot fool me. This ends here!”

Shamila’s eyes widened as the Venator’s hatch opened. She quickly looked at Vhiran. “Mas…” But her Master only sat there, motionless, with an empty look in his eyes. The girl gulped. She sat as if paralyzed, only able stare at him.

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! ^_^
