On the Run

6

Sadeya stood up looking at Will’s body which lay lifeless on the floor. She brushed the tears from her face while watching Losa still crying uncontrollably over him.

“I’ve got to go now.” Sadeya said. Losa looked up at her uncomprehendingly.

“You can’t just leave me here alone!” Losa cried out.

“If I don’t go, that Inquisitor will come back and kill us both.”

“Then take me with you.” Losa demanded. Sadeya shook her head.

“No I’m bad luck for anyone around me.” She said looking down at Will’s body again.

“We can use my father’s freighter. I can pilot it. At least let’s get off this planet and then decide what to do. If you leave me here, then they might come back and kill me anyway.” Losa explained through her tears. Sadeya thought on it.

“Okay we’ll both get off the planet and then decide what to do.” Sadeya offered. Losa packed up a few things and gave her last respects to her father. Then they both left the building.

They did their best to get to the docking bay unseen, despite the increased Imperial presence at the spaceport. They stuck close to buildings, used back alleyways, and even joined large throngs of people when it was possible. Eventually they got the docking bay that housed Will’s light freighter completely undetected. It sat there still fully loaded up and ready to go. Will had planned to leave later this day. They both ran to the ship.

“I knew you’d come here!’ A deep voice boomed out. Both Sadeya and Losa stopped in their tracks and spun round. There he was, the Sith Inquisitor, waiting there in the shadows for them. Sadeya looked at him. He had dark red skin and yellow eyes. He was taller than them and his thick arms looked as though they were solid muscle. He seemed to have no hair on his body and though he was humanoid, he seemed slightly reptilian.

“Losa, get to the ship and take off!” Sadeya ordered. Losa ran to the freighter. “I’ll deal with him.” The Inquisitor advanced on them.

“I knew he was lying. All I had to do was wait here for you to turn up eventually.” His deep voice reverberated through the docking bay. “Be assured, once I get rid of you, I will also kill your friend.”

“You’ll have to get through me first.” Sadeya said defiantly. The Inquisitor smiled.

“If that is your destiny.” He replied. Sadeya brought out her lightsaber and stood ready.

“Bring it on then!” She stated.

“Foolish girl! I know you were only a Padawan when Master Ordol was executed. You offer no threat to me. Surrender and I will spare the life of your friend.” The Inquisitor offered. “I’ll even complete your training, if you so wish.”

“The Sith are my enemy.” Sadeya stated. The Inquisitor looked slightly disappointed with her reply.

“Then I will destroy you.” The Inquisitor replied. He ignited his lightsaber. It shone a deep red. In response, Sadeya ignited hers; the green blade sharply contrasted with his. They advanced upon one another.
