The Originals raid a Sith base
Permalink

The base is on fire.

Which doesn't really bode well for anyone since they are in space, but Volos has no regrets. He and his siblings managed to blow up half of the base, destroying the fire suppressant system and also killing most of the defence forces in one fell swoop.

Still, they could all feel the two strong Force users still alive. The Sith and his apprentice, no doubt. Kladeos had already separated from them heading in the direction of the stronger one, leaving with a quip and a warning to the rest of them -- though to Volos in particular: 'Remember what we're here for.'

He has a job to do and he should really be off doing that right now...

"You know we're going in the wrong direction, right?"

Permalink

"And here you are following me quite eagerly. Not one complaint till now."

Permalink

"There's a lab in this direction, I want something from it."

Permalink

"Well, you can go do that and I can find this apprentice. Can't you feel them? They're strong."

Permalink

Vala reaches out with the Force, searching.

Permalink

The apprentice's Force presence is chaotic, a swirling firestorm cloaking ice-cold emotions. She's strong, but tiredtiredtired.

Permalink

"She's exhausted, but powerful. Desperate creatures can be difficult to put down."

Permalink

"She, huh? Interesting. And who said anything about putting her down?"

Permalink

"I'm not having this conversation with you. This Sith doesn't have any special talents. She likely doesn't know anything."

Permalink

"That we know of. Our data has been wrong before."

Permalink

"....fine. You can handle it yourself. I'm going to find this terminal. Don't get yourself killed."

Permalink

"Love you too, dear sister. I'll see you soon, Apprentice in hand."

They part and Volos heads Apprentice-ward.

Permalink

As he closes in on the Apprentice's location, it becomes apparent that she is tracking him in turn.

He encounters a corridor that hasn't yet caught fire-

And then the end of it bursts into flames.

Permalink

This is gonna be fun.

And then she turns the corner, stalking through the flames that seem to respond to her presence, swirling out of her way and around her, providing a cloak she's neglected in favour of tight leathers. Her lips curl into a sharp, vicious smile as she sees him and she ignites the lightsaber held almost negligently in her hand.

Permalink

....yes. This is perfect.

His own lightsaber stays on his hilt and he smiles at her approach.

"That's talent, love. Now where did you go and learn that?"

Permalink

She spins the lightsaber and stops her advance, shifting back into a slightly more defensive stance. "What, can't you?" she challenges, drawing fire to her free hand and whipping it up into vortex over her fist.

Permalink

Volos watches this in facination.

"I've never had the pleasure."

Permalink

"You can't be very strong then," she mocks.

She doesn't throw the flames in her hand, but flames abruptly surge around him.

Permalink

He is suddenly somewhere totally different, still staring at her.

"That was a bit rude, love. We're having a pleasant conversation here, a meeting of the minds."

Permalink

"You attacked this base. My Master requires your head."

Her words are surprisingly calm, and she does not, in fact, appear to be unnerved by him suddenly being somewhere else, is in fact still staring directly at him, body turned towards him, still defensive.

Permalink

"Your Master is going to be dead soon and I quite like my head where it is."

Permalink

She looks briefly considering, and then starts to advance again, hips swaying. "So you don't want to dance?"

Permalink

"Never said that."

He looks down at her and her flames, hunger in his eyes.

"You should give me a demonstration."

Permalink

Oh, she knows that look. The flames swirl up around her, around him, concealing her from view-
