Between the Conclaves – Epilogue, Part 5

Epilogue

Part 5

Vhiran. Are you alright?’ Tha’ci asked in a tone of sincere worry.

Vhiran gulped. She looked so different than that last day on Coruscant, the day of the Empire’s onslaught against the Jemple Temple. Even hanging by those wires, she now seemed so peaceful, as if she were only asleep. Not at all like she was… ‘Tha’ci, she’s, dead, right?’

Yes, she is. Vhiran, I must say you’re taking this better than I th…’

“If she’s dead, then why is she here?!” the young Knight called out loud. “If she was injured I might understand, but hanging up her lifeless body…?!”

I won’t tell you unless you calm down…’

“How can I be c…”

´Calm down.’

He took a deep breath. “Alright then. What is this, Tha’ci?”

This device was developed to keep the body in tact during the procedure.’

”Procedure? You mean…?”

Yes, cloning,’ Tha’ci replied in his mind. ‘While it didn’t happen often, during the years the procedure took place, things could go wrong. Should that happen, we would still able to retrieve cells from the body and begin the process anew. That’s why Bultar’s body is in there.’

Vhiran nodded shortly. “You’re, cloning her.”

Not yet. I wouldn’t start without the permission of the one closest to her. Obviously.’

The Knight stared at the ground for a bit, then broke the short silence with a deep sigh. “I could be seeing her again. I should be, happy. Yet, it feels like this is all so…”

Cheap?’ Tha’ci finished his line. ‘This way, it doesn’t matter if someone dies, because with this they can be brought back to life no matter what? This way, both life and death become cheap trivial matters? That’s how you feel, isn’t it?’

“How do you…”

We share the same body. Get used to me knowing your thoughts for some time,’ the Traveller chuckled. ‘Vhiran, some of my Shadows used to think like you do. The thing is, this cloning was not something we decided to do for fun or thrill. It was a last resort, without which our fight would have ended long before… Since our task was so important, if needed we would always fight harder than anyone to survive. But at times, there were those did not succeed at that. With this facility they were offered a second chance to continue devoting their lives to what they saw as their sworn duty: to protect the Galaxy we live in, and to fight and defeat the Dark Side that threatened it.’

“I understand that, but…”

If we’re going to have any chance to defeat the Sith and their Empire, we’re going to need people like you two, not have them die a meaningless death in some abandoned spice mine,’ she interrupted again. ‘Besides, Bultar’s a good person. Don’t you think she deserves a second chance?’

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! ^_^
