Preparing For Departure

Sib walked heatedly to the person the Council had told him to go to for supplies. Once there, he took what he needed and shooved them into his sack. He was in a hurry to get out and away from the Council. He was so upset that they with held this kind of information from the Jedi Order. If he had known earlier, he could have done something about it. He could have changed things. He was by no means a negotiator, but he could 'persuade' the fallen Jedi to turn back. He was not as weak and feeble like some of these Jedi walking about. He cared for none of them and most cared nothing for him.

As he walked to a speeder bike, he heard someone call out his name. At first, he ignored them and kept walking. Then he heard it again and stopped. He turned his head to see someone walking up to him.

Alexis walked up to Sib once he had turned to face him. He deliberatly kept his pace slow and calm as to show that the impatient look on Sib's face had no effect whatsoever.

" Jedi Belin I have been instructed to talk with you about these Fallen and corrupt jedi. The council believes we are on the same path and should work together."

Alexis prepared himself for the gruff reply he knew was coming..

Sib sized up the Jedi and starred at him for a moment. Without saying another word, he turned and tightened the bags on the speeder, "I need no escort Jedi. I work better alone. I don't want to have watch out for you in the heat of battle and would not do so if I had to. Our paths may intersect, but they are not parallel." He finished and turned back to look at the Jedi and wait for his response.

((OOC: I seriously just thought of what the old Dante would say for that one! Did I do well!? lol))

((LOL it was bang on))

Alexis merely grinned at Sib but he eyes showed no sign of warmth..

" Listen Pal you are not exactly my ideal travel buddy either but I will not ignore a direct request from the council so I am around whether you like it or not."

Alexis stared Sib straight in the face then winked.. he turned away and started to get some supplies of his own together..

" By the way, I have proved myself in the heat of battle more times than you can Imagine so if push comes to shove I will be worried about saving your ass than the other way around."

((GOOD! I hoped to!))

Sib crossed his arms, "Is that so? Son, I know aspects of the Ashla you could never understand. Now get your stuff and try not to fall behind. We have a 5 day journey ahead of us and I'm not going to wait up for you. The only reason your coming with me is because the Council wants it."

Sib turned and threw his leg over the bike. He flipped a few switches and reved up the engine. Without looking back, he shot off threw the gates, a dust trail shooting up behind him.

" It would appear that all those years have failed to teach you humility " added Alexis as he finished attaching his supplies to his own bike.

Hopping over the seat he tore after Sib down the path..

"Humility is for diplomates young Jedi. Learn that. I am a warrior, not a talker." He yelled as Alexis speed up next to him.

Alexis shook his head and continued on his path, " Warrior or diplomat, the bottom line is you are a jedi and arrogance and conceitedness are contraray to the ethos of our way of life "

Alexis banked left sharply to avoid a tree stump..

"You do not know me yet you judge me as arrogant and conceded. Tell me Jedi, is I who is arrogant and conceded, or you who is stuck in your ways and will never look past the code you have dedicated your life to?" He hit the accelorator and sped ahead a little bit, just enough to let Alexis think.

In truth, Sib wasn't arrogant or conceded, he was just seasoned and bitter. He had been betrayed so many years ago by ones he thought he had loved and the wound still stuck. He had never trusted anyone since.

Alexis laughed, " I am only saying what i see.. and what are we if we dont have the code? better jedi that you have perished because they believed themselves to be above it"

Alexis flashed his vents as he tore past Sib giving him a speed burst..

Sib furrowed his brow and sighed, "There's a difference between following a code and being a puppet of it. Learn that line young Jedi."

Alexis jerked sideways to avoid a tree stump.. " The line between following your own interpretation of the code and plain ignoring it is a very fine one Jedi Belin."

He toyed with the power conduit, something wasnt right..

" And while we are on the subject, I am no ones puppet "

Sib laughed, "If you say so young Jedi. Remember that when you can't do anything on your own." He watched him toy with the power conduit and frowned, "What's wrong with your speeder?"

Alexis was giving it more attention now, there was something definitly up. Numbers he couldnt expalain were starting to whir around on the on board computer. Which was odd reall because mostly all the data was displayed on the screen further up, no one would ever think to look down the the actual computer part unless they thought something was wrong.. what was written though.. it was numbers..6....5....4...3..2.. Alexis's eyes narrowed and in a milisecond he had launched himself in the air as high as he could go... the speeder shot ahead for a few seconds then exploded into a fireball..

Alexis landed on his feet and looked up at the wreckage in shock..

Sib stopped his bike and watched as the fireball sped by. His eyes grew thin as he sighed and turned back for Alexis. He stopped infront of him and gritted his teeth, "It seems someone is out to stop us...and they work inside our temple..." He looked the other way at the fire that was licking at the sky, "Get aboard Alexis, we need to go keep going."

Without a word Alexis ignited his lightsaber and stabbed it at the panel on the side of Sib's speeder, before Sib could react he pushed his hand into the hole and pulled out a small detonator. He threw it in the air and pulled out his pistol. He picked it off as it started to fall and it exploded.

" I guess there is one thing we agree on, some one definitly wants us dead "

He threw his leg over the seat and indictated he was ready to move on.

" I think it would be wise to use less convential routes to our destination"

Sib nodded, "Very well. We can take the back roads over to our destination. However, it will take us almost 4 days longer. I suggest that we get going now."

Sib was used to people wanting to kill him. He had survived for many years already with death threats, attempts, assasinations, murders, and so on. But through it all he had survived and learned to trust no one but himself.

Sib powered up the engine and shot off, leaving a dust trail behind them as he headed for the trees. It was a much longer road, but only few knew of it. Also, it was a very dangerous road. Between the animals and the raiders, he wasn't expecting to make it through unharmed, whether Alexis made it or not was not his problem.

Hours passed in silence, interrupted the odd time by a fleeting glimpse of some local fauna. Alexis used the time to meditate.. trying to call to his mind any faces he could remember from the temple who would have had acess to his speeder. He could find none.

When he broke his concentration it was very dark.. Clearing his throat he spoke. " You know we should probably stop here, there is a stream of fresh water and shelter in these trees. Better to rest now in security than to go on a bit more and risk harsher climates"..

Sib slowed the bike down and came to a hault next to a tree. He jumped off and walked over to his pack. He started undewing his pack and taking things out.

Sib walked around in the general area and started picking up sticks, dry grass, and small logs. Walking back over, he made a small pile with the kindling underneath the logs and used a small device to start a fire. He sat down and watched the flames, being somewhat entranced by them as he thought.

(occ sorry about delay, i have been sick)

Alexis Paced around the camp sight as if he was looking for something, without a word he leaped high into the air and landed gracefully on a branch. From there he scanned the area.

With a silent thud he dropped back to the ground.

He crossed his legs and closed his eyes and began to meditate

Sib shook his head slightly, "Don't be so hesitant. Most of the animals are afraid of fire and we could sense anyone coming if they saw our fire."

not every animal fears fire and not every person can be felt through the Ashla, you should know this. I can sense even now that you have trained your mind from outside detection.. A very hard feat I must admit. My old master chose to train in that also.. he was dissapointed when I opted to enhance my battle abilities over training my mind...

Sib huffed heavily, "I can feel the animals around me and I can feel the 5 men stalking us about 200 meters behind us. My mind is trained as well as my sword skills. I am the perfect warrior."

I would say you are a few years older than me Said Alexis as he busied himself over by a distant tree, Sib couldnt see what he was doing

I would imagine you have seen alot, but what I have learned is that there is no such thing as the perfect warrior, there is the ideal warrior, the great warrior and the born warrior but no one is the perfect warrior.

Alexis walked back over to Sib, he was was carrying two sturdy shafts of wood. Each shaft was roughly the lenght and thickness and width of a lightsaber

And as a fellow warrior I am always keen to examine the form and tactics of others.. so come "perfect warrior" show me what you have got

Alexis tossed a bough to Sib, he had no idea where this would lead but he knew from experience that the only way to get the respect of grumpy old fighters like this guy was to show them you could handle yourself.. He ready his stance, he knew that Sib would undersetimate him and that was his greatest assest. Sib would not expect him to have trained in enhanced jedi offence and ashlabatics

" Ready when you are "

(( OCC i feel this would be a good way for Sib and Alexis to break the ice, I dont really mind who wins but seeing as we both have enhanced offence and Sib has trained his mind and Alexis has super agility it should be a pretty even match.. it can leave the two of them respecting each other a bit more ))

((OCC: Not bad idea. I like the idea and say that they are practicing and they bunch of guys walkin on them as they are practicing or somethin?))

Sib moved with lightening speed as his leg sweeped out from under Alexis' feet and he fell on the ground in a heep of dust. Sib stood over him bearing down on him with the stick as he pointed it in his face. "The first lesson from the 'perfect warrior' is that you should always be ready to fight, even when your not."

He stood back and let him stand up. Sib held the stick in one hand and turned his head to the left and right cracking it and loosening it. "Attack." Was all he said and stood ready for him.

Alexis grinned, that was a down right cowardly attack in his opinion but hey a fight was a fight.

Alexis launched into an attack, and though he might have imagined it he thought he saw a look of suprise on Sib's face. Alexis knew what he was doing. He used his agility to duck and leap out of the way of Sibs attacks.

Sib jumped out at him again and used his stick to lock Alexis in a sleeper hold. With lightning reactions Alexis ran his feet up an nearby tree and flipped over Sibs head landing behind him.

He spun in a low sweep kick that knocked the feet from under Sib then with pin point accuracy continued the spin and brought his heel around to make contact with Sibs chest as he fell. Smacking him to the ground.

Alexis grinned again and rolled his shoulders..

Sib huffed again and grabbed Alexis' foot. He spun in the air and twisted Alexis onto the ground as Sib pointed his stick at his face. "One can be flexibale and agile, but the easiest moves always work."

As they looked at each other a twig snapped in the distance and Sib dropped his stick and pulled out his lightsaber. He motioned out into the trees and heard footsteps as someone drew nearer. "You go into the trees and wait. I will sit by the fire and see what they want."

In a flash Alexis was high up in the branches watching the procedings. He positioned himself to be ready to strike at the first sign of trouble..

He held his lightsaber firmly in his hand and waited..

Sib tucked the lightsaber under his arm and crossed them as he sat crosslegged on the ground infront of the fire. For a moment or two, nothing happened. There was only the rustle of leaves and snapping of twigs. Then three men stepped out of the bushes holding large carbine rifles.

The led man stepped forward. He was rather small in comparisson to the rest but well built and he had a large scar running down the side of his head and neck, "Hello there friend. Mind if we share your fire?"

Sib looked up at the three men and just stared, "Who are you?" He asked blankly.

One of the taller men behind the leader stepped forward, "We want to share your fire 'friend'. Is that so hard to do?"

The smaller man put a hand up, "Forgive my companions. They are...lacking in the department of trust or hospitality." He wore a rather large and devious grin on his face. Sib didn't trust him.

"I can see that. Perhaps you are hear to collect the bounty on my head? I hear it's gotten rather large these days." Sib said casually and tightened his grip on his lightsaber slightly.

The smaller man chuckled, "You are a quick one. Yes friend, we are here to take your bounty. However, the bounty is much large with you ALIVE...unfortunatly. Personally, I'd like to just kill you and call it a day. And so would my companions as well." The man raised his rifle and pointed it at Sib's head, "So come along Jedi or you'll be dead before you can say 'poodoo'."

Sib grinned slightly and stood up. He brushed back his hood to reveal a dark mess of hair that was pulled up into a pony tail. He had a large scar running down his face and he turned to all three of the men. But instead of attacking, he looked up breifly to Alexis and winked then concentrated as hard as he could. He focused every bit of his strength and concentration on the leader's gun and pulled it from his hand.

The other two men didn't like this one bit and let out a volly of blaster fire which Sib deflected. The leader pulled out a large blaster and fell back as Sib charged toward the men.

Alexis took his cue and hooked his feet under a bough. As the attacker moved back he swung his body down and caught one, with one swift twist of his arm he broke his neck and vanished back in to the tree's. The others didnt see that attack but did see a very much dead companion on the ground.

Alexis decided to land, he fell to the ground with a light thud and ignited his own silver lightsaber..

"Ever have one of those days when you really wish you had not gotten out of bed that morning?"

( OCC remember we cant deflect blaster fire with our sabers unless we have jedi defence)

(OCC CRAP! Your right lol. I'm having a hard time adapting to this lol! Thanks thou!)

Sib grunted, "Everyday..." He said and they both raced toward the remaining two men. As they did so, Sib heard more crunching to his left and he looked to see two more men step out of the trees. He planted his foot on the ground and suddenly changed directions and ran towards the new two men.

Darting left and right to avoid blaster bolts, he came up to one of them and slashed him from groin to nose, splitting him in two. The other man paniced seeing his companion fall to the ground in two halves and screamed as he started firing rapidly. The man scored a hit on Sib's shoulder but it didn't stop him from thrusting his lightsaber into the man's chest and pulling it out through his side.

Alexis was making quick work of the two that had attacked him, he had put his lightsaber away and was fighting them hand to hand. Mianly becuase he had been out of practsie for a while and wanted to shake of the rust.

A series of kicks and punches later his attackers were exhausted, they moved in for one last charge. Alexis let his lightsaber dangle from its power chord by his waist. in a flash he had ignited it but instead of grabbing it he let it hang there.. with amazing agility he span around as fast as he could becoming a veritable spinning top of death as the blade cut a lethal path through the attackers.

He came to a rest and looked around at the dead bodies then looked at Sib.. "lucky they came, you were about to lose the fight"

He laughed at Sibs expression then began to search the bodies for some sign of who sent them..

Sib extinguished his blade and walked heavily over to one of the attackers. He was just barely alive. He was breathing heavily and almost in shock and looked up at Sib in horror.

"Why did you come?" Sib asked coldly. "If you tell me what I want to know, I'll ease your passing..."

The man looked up at him and began to chock slightly, "We...sent to capture you...we're...mercs..."

"Who put up the bounty?" Sib said.

"Dark man...tall...black cloak with red mask...I never got his nam-" The man suddenly cried out in pain and started to suck on the air as hard as he could. Sib pulled out his lightsaber and put it to the man's head. Sib pressed the button quickly and the blade shot out and back in in a flash, but the blade had gone through the man's head.
