"Fascinating," she drawls.

She leads the way through the burning corridors, the flames staying clear enough of her companion even as they lick against her skin. She knows the shortcuts and it doesn't take them very long to reach the room Kladeos is fighting her master.

When they arrive they find the fight at its climax. Or rather: a dark haired girl holding Saud's Master in a stasis field and another man, presumably Kladeos, smiling at their entrance.

Permalink

"Done already? Thought you had more stamina than that."

Permalink

"And you as well, brother. You seem to have lost half of your face to the fire. Losing your touch?"

Permalink

There's no fire around her now, no indication she'd been controlling any fire at all. She's smirking slightly, at the sight of her master so thoroughly detained. She doesn't say anything.

Permalink

"Didn't lose anything at all. Playing with fire has always been my favourite pastime." 

Permalink

Permalink

"So it seems. You're the Apprentice then?"

Permalink

"I am," she confirms simply, posture loose. She tilts her head slightly, her hair falling away from her face and revealing the elegant line of her neck. She looks inviting. "Did you require something of me?"

Permalink

"Vala and I were just discussing creative ways to kill your Master. I have many ideas, but it's always good to get input from another party."

Permalink

"I can think of a few." She does not volunteer them.

Permalink

"I know I have a preference."

He looks to Saud with an expectant look.

Permalink

She lowers her eyes demurely. "I would hardly claim this."

As she speaks, flames drop from the ceiling and surge up from the floor engulfing her master.

Permalink

Volos watches in fascination.

Permalink

Kladeos laughs.

Permalink

Vala drops the now burning and screaming Sith and turns her attention to Saud.

"This is you?"

Permalink

She's watching her master burn impassively, chin slightly raised (underneath her surprisingly blank facade there is relief, and satisfaction). "It was my kill," she states instead of a more obvious response. The flames don't stray from the burning man, staying focused and contained.

Permalink

"Maybe so."

Vala holds out her hand throws a stasis field over Saud.

Permalink

"Is that really necessary, Vala?"

Permalink

The Apprentice doesn't attempt to evade, and there's only blank acceptance and resignation - everyone is the same.

The flames on her master are abruptly far less tightly controlled.

Permalink

Kladeos looks at the rising flames around them.

"Seems like you found something special, brother."

Permalink

"Of course. Did you really expect anything less?"

Permalink

He looks at the burning Sith in amusement and then to Saud.

"Such power and rage. Did you think to take his place, little Sith?"

Permalink

The stasis field lowers enough for Saud to reply.

Permalink

She's silent for a long moment. "I wanted him dead," she states. "That's all." There's no indication under her words that she wanted to take over for him, but a stern resolve that she would've if it meant she survived.
