It was New Yaer's eve, but there was no celebrating in the halls of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. The small crowd fell silent as Ames Victur stepped quietly in front of the tomb and cleared his throat.
Ames Victur: "Today, we honour a great Jedi. Today we say goodbye to a Leader, a teacher and most importantly, a friend..."
Ames Victur: "Farewell, Yurren Relm, may the Force be with you always."
When the service ended, Ames took a quiet moment to stand by his friend's tomb. When Yurren's death had reached the ears of the Council, Ames had been named the new Grand Master. He was struggling with the weight of responsibility that was on his shoulders and he felt more alone now than ever.
Rolyun Soru: "Master Ames? I am sorry."
Ames Victur: "Thank you, Rolyun. How are you?"
Rolyun Soru: "I miss him, Master."
Ames Victur: "So do I."
Rolyun Soru: "He was teaching me, you know I never officially took my Trials. He was teaching me what I could not teach myself and now he is gone."
Ames Victur: "Not quite, Rolyun. When we went through his things, we found a holorecording to you. It simply states that you should go to Naboo."
Rolyun Soru: "But Master, the war?"
Ames Victur: "The war will wait. You've eart a break, Rolyun. Go, find out what he wants you to learn. May the Force be with you."
Naboo, one week later.
Rolyun cursed as he walked into another empty cave. He did not know what he was expecting to find, but he had thought that Yurren would have made it a little easier for him.
Rolyun Soru: "What am I doing wrong?"
A searing pain suddenly shot across Rolyun's forehead. He gasped before falling on the floor, his eyes sliding shut.
When the Jedi opened his eyes he was lying in a meadow filled with beautiful flowers. He looked around to see a woman stood on a hill.
Rolyun Soru: "Hello?"
Nayam Soru: "Ah, Rolyun!"
Rolyun Soru: "You know me?"
Nayam Soru: "Of course! We are related!"
Rolyun Soru: "I don't understand?"
Nayam Soru: "I don't expect you to. This is our home, mine and my husband's that is. I am Nayam Soru."
Rolyun Soru: "Nayam Soru... But wait! That means..."
Harash Soru: "Rolyun! You're here at last!"
Rolyun Soru: "Master Soru?"
Harash Soru: "It's Hara, my friend."
Rolyun Soru: "Hara... What is this place?"
Harash Soru: "Somewhere between a dream and a reality. This is our home, this is the light side of the Force."
Rolyun Soru: "I still don't understand."
Harash Soru: "It doesn't matter. All that matters Rolyun, is you. The fate of the Galaxy lies in your hands, you have great power."
Rolyun Soru: "So this is a pep talk?"
Harash Soru: "No, not at all."
Harash Soru: "Destiny is something that none of us can escape. The Force has a plan for all of us, but it is up to you how you get there. Master Relm sends his regards, Rolyun. Remember, you are never alone."
Rolyun turned around quickly.
Rolyun Soru: "Are you real, or a dream?"
But the Soru's were nowhere to be seen and the meadow was growing dark.
Rolyun opened his eyes as the cave reformed around him, oblivious to the dark figure standing before him.
As he rose however, the dark figure used the Force to throw him against the rocks.
Dark Rolyun: "I am what you could be! Give in to your fear! Join Ignatious and you will rule the galaxy!"
Rolyun's eyes flashed to something that materialised behind the man. He smiled thinly.
Rolyun Soru: "No, I make my own path!"
The lightsaber flew to Rolyun's hand as he stood up and thrust the blade into the dark version of himself.
Rolyun Soru: "I am a Jedi!"
As Rolyun stood and examined the new lightsaber, he heard a soft voice fill the air around him.
Harash Soru: "You will never be alone."
