Stepping into the demon's playground pt 1

You know how they say out of the frying pan into the fire? Well , that about summed up Mustafar in my estimitation..Hotter than any dragon's fire could conjure, the planet was hell on earth .

We all changed into the lightest robes we had before we disembarked. I made sure Belda had some water to drink before we left. The heat outside would be unbearable and we would probably befighting.. without water she could very likely collapse from heat exhaustion.

We crawled over jagged outcroppings " Down there!" I yelled over the roar of the lava. I could see two figures fleeing through the darkened tunnel.Pho looked back at us as she weighed the decision in her mind.


"I'm going on ahead!" She dissapeared almost instantly, blending into the rock. My heart froze in my throat. Was she out of her mind? I scaled down the cliffside as fast as I was able, Belda just behind me, going a bit slower.

When we reached the bottom we took off at a run for the tunnel. we were about halfway there whenever the tunnel seemed to give way . I pulled Belda close and sent the force out in a barrier to try and shield us. if I was forced to change now I would bring down the whole tunnel. But if I had to I would... suddenly the tunnel stopped shaking . We ran the rest of the way into the tunnel.


Skidding to a stop I saw who Marasha's "freind" was. No way.. it couldn't be.. Catia..
I pulled Phobia back," Are you out of your mind?" I held her tightly. She was insane.. certifibly insane. no sane person woud take chances like this!

I was mad at her a little, but moreso it was out of worry and fear for her safety." You could have gotten yourself killed!" I didn't want to let her go, but we had to finish this here.

A stone like coffin rose out of the ground, swirls and symbols painted on the lid. As it cooled the coffin opened to reveal a man..

Phobia covered Belda's eyes as a man rose out of the coffin. I watched his movements as he took the bundle of clothes from Marasha and dressed quickly. He was about as tall as Qui Gon , same build too. but he was older with a samauri bun atop his head and piercing brown eyes. A gasp left Pho's lips" Hoth.." she whispered

A second coffin was rising now, a slimmer coffin. A woman's coffin.She rose out of the coffin with a lethal quickness before dropping to one knee right arm crossed over her chest to her left shoulder. Smiling Catia placed ornately carved lightsabers into both their hands.

Phobia backed up against me, voice a mere hiss" Godfrey, Hoth.. Belda.. Marasha is yours.. Atris is mine."

I moved for Lord Hoth, green blade ignited. he saw me comming and dropped back into an Okinawan sidestance before comming at me like a tiger.. Which ironically is what I could see through my dragon's eyes. So he was once a part ofthe DaiShujo order too, intresting...

Until Later

This won't last much longer, then we can go home and relax.. Heaven above Pho, you could certainly use it..

Darth Vader said...

First, you're not going this alone. Second.. I think thatproper" persuasion" from Yoko and Hiei might to a world of good moreso than you stressing yourself out over the twit.

Master Godfrey we must stop Marasha! Then we can rest. No rest until these two Sith witches are killed or put into prison!

Godfrey Zebulon said...

Prision won't stop either of them..I can tell you that. But soon the search might have to be called off. we are all tired and weary.

A return to Coruscant and spending a few days at home at the temple might not be such a bad thing to give us a new pespective as to where and what she plans next..
