Saviours 09: Down the Hole . . Prakith, the Sith Temple, one hour after the events in Bloodlines 17: Love of my Life .
Goruq Da: "Copy that Master Soru. May the Force be with you."
Goruq sighed as he walked back to his two fellow Jedi.
Juuka Turis: "Bad news?"
Goruq Da: "Mary Kringe believes there is a plot to embed Michael in the Dark Side forever. Hara is understandably worried."
Jordan Bordo: "Of course he is! Do we have orders?"
Goruq Da: "We're to continue our search. Master Soru believes there are only a handful of Sith who still live."
Juuka Turis: "Then let us set our mind to that. I feel the Dark Side is close at hand."
Darth Vatrix stared dully down the deep hole in the centre of the room, thoughts racing through his troubled mind.
Juuka Turis: "Thinking of jumping? I could give you a push if you like?"
Darth Vatrix: "Jedi, I am glad you finally showed."
Jordan activated his lightsabers with a snarl.
Jordan Bordo: "You wont be when we're through!"
Darth Vatrix: "We shall see. I am one of the true Sith Lords! I will not fall as easily as my brothers and sisters!"
As soon as Jordan and Juuka came into range, Vatrix unleashed a storm of Force lightning that sent both Jedi flying backwards in pain.
Vatrix spun around to meet Goruq's lightsaber, cackling under his mask.
Darth Vatrix: "The legendary Goruq Da! I have always wanted to face you! Though, I am disappointed you brought along these children."
Goruq swung at Vatrix's legs, the Sith Lord barely dodging the attack. When he landed he found Jordan charging towards him.
Goruq Da: "Would children not go down easier?"
Vatrix roared as he unleashed a storm of lightning at Jordan.
Darth Vatrix: "I am Sith! I do not need to lower myself to the level of you Jedi!"
Juuka slithered forwards, his double-bladed lightsaber weaving an intricate string of deadly attacks.
Juuka Turis: "You give us little credit Vatrix. If you were a true Sith Lord then you would know to be weary of us!"
Darth Vatrix: "How little you know of me! I am Rovaniss' Hand! His personal emmisary! Gerett, Tremor, they are nothing compared to me!"
Juuka reached out with the Force and threw Vatrix accross the room.
Juuka Turis: "If you are so important to your Emperor, why aren't you at his side now?"
Goruq stood over Vatrix's damaged body.
Goruq Da: "It's over Vatrix. Surrender."
Vatrix looked up, hate burning within his heart as he unleashed a storm of lightning that caught Goruq by surprise.
Darth Vatrix: "I am Vatrix! Lord of the Sith! The Throne will be mine one day! But today, you will die!"
Juuka Turis: "No! Only you will die today!"
Vatrix snarled as the Thisspiasian Jedi slithered towards him. With a grunt, Vatrix leapt over the Jedi Master and swung his lightsaber out behind him.
Juuka gasped before sliding to the floor, his body tumbled down the hole in the centre of the room, the two halves separating as he fell.
Jordan Bordo: "No..."
Darth Vatrix: "Sacrafices, you Jedi do love them so. But it will be your end as much as his Bordo!"
Goruq Da suddenly appeared behind Vatrix.
Goruq Da: "Perhaps you should have ended me when you had the chance!"
Goruq's blade flared to life and Vatrix gasped as the purple beam of energy cut through his armour and into his body.
He stumbled backwards before looking a Goruq and bowing his head slightly.
Darth Vatrix: "Free, at last."
Vatrix took another step back and vanished as he followed Juuka Turis down the deep hole.
Jordan Bordo: "Free at last? What did he mean?"
Goruq Da: "Who knows, Jordan? Just be glad he's not here anymore."
But as Goruq Da walked quietly from the room, a small smile touched his face as the whispers of Vatrix filled his head for the last time.
Darth Vatrix: "Thank you, Goruq Da. I am free from Rovaniss, free from the Dark Side. I am free."
