A Jedi”s tale;
the looming darkness
DAVID BRIAN ALSMAN
(SOME NAMES HAVE BEEN CHANGED)
I sit in meditation, remembering each Jedi I knew or trained , their faces ghostly now, my thoughts wander in and out, only the force containing it properly! I look back at the ones lost in this annihilation! I remember them, I have memorialized them, with my training, and the training of the younglings, the bear clan prodigy!! the blaster bolts flashing, and whizzing by my head and body, only piercing my outer robes, and my tunic sleeve.
The clone troopers have them surrounded, my friends, along with me guardians of the bear clan!
as my protocol droid scans for life forms, i blast away at these cloned protectors, turned bad, turned by a simple little code, CODE 66! falling the clones, with the destiny's blasters, wall fragments are blown away revealing a small group of adult jedi, ten in fact, surrounding forty carbonite cases, in each a child, frozen and waiting for a new life, elsewhere.....
....on the ground lay my friend, and wife, a forbidden marriage between two jedi, but there she lay none the less, her master ,she knew our secret, but never once did she say anything to either of us. i gather her body and take aboard the destiny, peacefully laying at rest, i swallow my loss, and being a jedi knight, i return and help the others!
My protocol droid , designated "12", he helps with the wounded, as well the forty carbonite cases. we stow them in the cramped cargo hold! the cases now safe, and secured, i program the destiny for launch, the engines hum and begin to roar slightly, "12" engages the hyper driver, and with swirling of stars, before us, the destiny jets through a hyperspace tunnel, then disappears into the void.
"12' has the duties of pilot , as i go and ready my bride for her funeral! her master looks at me as i make my way to my wife’s sleep chamber.
with un-easiness in the air, her master comes in the small sleeping chamber, saddened by her Palawan’s death, she consoles me, being knelt down beside my wife, her master gently places her right hand on my left shoulder! I fight to hold the tears back, as does my wife’s master, both her eyes well up, and two large singular tears stream down her cheeks, with a confirming grip, she walks away!
"Aya!" i speak out softly to my fallen wife...."Aya,you are free now, free from this evil that has befallen the galaxy's jedi, you are home ! i will join you someday, but now we must find sanctuary!" i stand and retrieve a death bag, and place her inside, sealing it making a vacuumed seal closer around her deceased body.
"master Aldan, we are coming out of hyper drive, seems the main computer has been damaged! also four signals’ have been locked on by our targeting computers, they seem to be hostiles!" i finish wrapping my wife, and secure her body to the bunk, then limp to the thingypit, aya's master limping right beside me. "San-Vii, deep range fighters have us locked, we won't survive this !" with worry in my voice! "Als-da, we will survive this, and the bear clan will make it to Baullyfoure! the force will protect us!" spoken calmly and assertively, i raise my head, and fiddle with the console, "12" also works with the flight computer!
With all intent and purposes of destroying the destiny, the fighters attack, laser bolts rip through the hull, striking and killing five adult jedi !
The blasts rip through their bodies like a hot knife through butter! San-Vii , leaves the thingypit, and makes her way back to others and tries to help them, when suddenly the destiny's hull fractures! And buckles inward, the fighters cease their attack, as they put some distance between them and the destiny! a sudden burst of light, and seconds later a disgusting thump, as the destiny explodes into several large pieces!
The emergency life support shielding devices close the breaches in the shattered ship's hull! Shattered, the destiny floats for a few seconds, then she falls from the heavens. Fiery piece shatter once more as they hit the atmosphere of an uncharted planet....
Shattered, the destiny floats for a few seconds, then she falls from the heavens. Fiery piece shatter once more as they hit the atmosphere of an uncharted planet....
Most of the destiny's smaller hull pieces burn up upon reentry, but the larger pieces, fall , spiraling down the surface of this unknown planet's floor! The first piece of ship's hull we see quietly falls, to the snow capped mountain region, suddenly, crashing and banging noises, as the hull piece crashes through trees and rocks, until a loud thudding crashing sound is heard as the hull piece suddenly, stops with a sudden jolt, tossing the inhabitants of the hull piece, to fly around the wreckage, some thrown from the wreckage, and landing, in a darkened place, to be revealed as a snowy cave as the passengers awaken! 20 carbonite cases are strewn and scattered over the cave floor.
Another hull piece crashes fiery into a wooded area, and comes to rest on the bank of an alien riverbed, the inhabitants in this piece are tossed and hurled around as well, Als-da Aldan is thrown against the hull wall and his left leg is pinned to the floor by broken beams from the destiny's infra-structure, he lay un-conscious, as do the others. 5 carbonite cases still attached and secured to their resting place, as they were put their on curoscant.
A third hull piece bounces off a lake, and skims the water, until it comes to a rest in lush wheat field, this piece is the smallest hull piece, but has per capita more inhabitants, most inhabitants have been thrown free of the wreckage, scattered around, lay 10 of the carbonite cases
all intake, but violently thrown around. the protocol droid "12" lay in disarray!
The second crash site...Als-da Aldan trying to free himself, he sees twenty pairs of small feet, and one pair of adult feet. Aldan figures the carbonite cases malfunctioned and thawed during their un-consciousness.
"Master Aldan, easy ! we will try to free you! it maybe a bit tricky. please bare with me, Master!" as calmly as he could speak, Tomesh , looked inside himself, and focused his mind on the steel infrastructure pinning Master aldan to the floor! Tomesh, feels the force flowing within him, he feels his strength increasing, a sudden calm over comes both mesh and Master Aldan! "i feel it lifting Master." Tomesh spoke softly. "padawan, let me help you? together we should be able to move this carnage!" I told Tomesh. we both went into a force driven state of peace, and with out failure the carnage moved, my leg moved with it. "Tomesh, use this!" Tomesh reaches for the saber i just had taken from my belt. "Master aldan, i thought the trident was only legend, a myth! but i am holding it in my hand!" Tomesh, was one that didn't excite easily, but he was, quite excited.
The tri-dent saber of grand master D' Amascus, the master of us all.
Tomesh looked the saber over before he used it to free me. A tri-bladed light saber, the central saber hilt was much like any other saber hilt, except for the detailing and intricacies, (the carving) the central shaft looked most like mace windu's saber, except the colorings, Aldan's tri-dent was mostly silver, except for the blackened highlights, the main hilt a bit longer than your standard twelve inches, closer to fourteen inches in total length. but the tri-dent got its name from the extra emitters on either side of the main hilt, these smaller 4 inch sabers, lay close to the main hilt shaft, but each had the same pommel, rounded, with squared blocks that circled the pommel ball of each hilt. The tri-dent saber weighing heavier than most sabers, Tomesh had no problem with its weight. Tomesh ignites my tri-dent saber, and ignition reveals three fiery orange blades, the central blade four inches longer than the two outer blades, the smaller emitters sat just one half inch below the main emitter. the saber ignited, now looks more like a broadsword than a rapier. Tomesh smiled in amazement at the saber, I hold the debris up, as well my leg high enough, that Tomesh can sever the beams in my thigh!...Focusing on the force to control my pain, Tomesh severs the beams, the debris shifts, and with out a glance from Tomesh, i hold the debris off my leg and body with the ever present force. Tomesh hands my saber back to me, and he and i move the debris then set it aside. Tomesh, surprised i remained as calm as i had been during this ordeal.
