The Photonovel Alliance
DARK ILLUSIONSChapter 18



Following the memorial of Jedi Master Adi Gallia, the Temple is once again full of Jedi preparing to rejoin the War.


    



Anakin Skywalker: Why has everyone received new orders but us?

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Master Windu is expecting some new intelligence. He specifically wants us to act on that information. But until then, we wait.



    



Anakin Skywalker: What kind of intelligence?

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Oh, he’s not saying. But based on his tone, it must have something to do with General Grievous. He is determined to find him ever since the attack on Master Gallia.






Anakin Skywalker: What about Dooku? He’s the person I want to hunt down.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Count Dooku has been very elusive. If we discover Grievous, perhaps that will lead us to the location of Dooku and his mysterious Sith Lord.






Anakin Skywalker: And when we defeat them, you’ll have to get used to all the fame that comes with being a hero! You know that means you’ll have to smile, Master!

Obi-Wan Kenobi: If it means the end of the War, then I am willing to just that!






Shaak Ti: Remember, Padawan, a Jedi can feel the Force flowing through them.

Zett Jukassa: Yes, Master.






Zett Jukassa: But why do I have to practice with one just one Sphere? I can destroy ten-times as many. I can pretend I’m on the frontlines of the Clone Wars!





Shaak Ti: Don’t concern yourself with the War, Padawan. Your concentration should be here and now. You must first learn to focus your mind, before you can focus on the things around you. Now, are you ready?

Zett Jukassa: Yes, Master.






Shaak Ti: Then close your eyes…and begin!





Zett Jukassa: Yah!





Zett Jukassa: I did it! Too easy, Master!

Shaak Ti: Very good, Padawan. However, a moving target is not so easily defeated.






Shaak Ti: It does not matter who is the strongest, Zett. A Jedi must learn to feel the Force. To listen to the will of the Force. Only then will you be one with the Force.

Zett Jukassa: Yes, Master.






Zett Jukassa: When can I spar versus a real opponent? I know how to defend myself. And all of the other Padawans in my class have already passed their lightsaber skills test.





Shaak Ti: Do not compare yourself to you peers. Every Jedi travels down a different path. However, a friendly sparring match would be beneficial for your saber training.





Shaak Ti: You’re too familiar with my style…but how about…Master Kenobi?

Zett Jukassa: Really?! Master Kenobi?!






Shaak Ti: Excuse me, Master Kenobi?





Obi-Wan Kenobi: Hello, Master Ti and Zett.

Shaak Ti: Would you care to have a friendly sparring lesson with Zett? Since he is too familiar with my style, I think he would benefit from working with another Master.






Obi-Wan Kenobi: Well, I would certainly like to, but my saber technique has been called…well, simple. I doubt I could teach you anything to be proud of.





Obi-Wan Kenobi: However…my companion, Anakin, would be perfect! I’m sure you have heard about him…from his “fame”.

Anakin Skywalker: Wha?! Who, me?






Zett Jukassa: Really!? No kidding?! Will you show me some of your techniques, Master Skywalker?!





Anakin Skywalker: Well…I don’t know…I have to…sure, I suppose I could show you a thing or two…





Shaak Ti: Now, remember Zett, protect yourself at all times. Trust your instincts.

Zett Jukassa: I will. I know what to do!






Anakin Skywalker: Thanks again, old friend. I owe you one after this.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: This will be good for you, Anakin. You need to stay sharp until our next assignment. Besides, how can you be a Master if you don’t pass down what you have learned? Do try to have fun!






Shaak Ti: Ready? Begin!





Zett Jukassa: Yah!

Anakin Skywalker: Hey! Wait a minute.






Zett Jukassa: Hi-yah!





Zett Jukassa: Take…that!!!

Anakin Skywalker: Calm down, little one…






Zett Jukassa: Yah!

Anakin Skywalker: Hey…be careful…






Zett Jukassa: Take…that!





Anakin Skywalker: Hey…

Zett Jukassa: Yah!






Anakin Skywalker: Take it easy…

Zett Jukassa: And that!






Zett Jukassa: I did it! I defeated Anakin Skywalker!! Wait ’til everyone hears about this!!!





Zett Jukassa: I should be a Master! I should be on the Jedi Council!





Anakin Skywalker: What??





Shaak Ti: That’s enough, Padawan. A Jedi is never arrogant nor disrespectful.

Zett Jukassa: But…I’m sorry, Master.






Zett Jukassa: But didn’t you see how I took him down…and…

Anakin Skywalker: We’re not done yet, Padawan!






Anakin Skywalker: I’ll show you how to handle a lightsaber!

Zett Jukassa:






Anakin Skywalker: You could never defeat me!

Zett Jukassa: …wait…stop…






Anakin Skywalker: If you want to play for real, then let’s play for real!





Zett Jukassa: Nooo…stop…I didn’t mean to…





Anakin Skywalker: Defend yourself, “Jedi Master!”

Zett Jukassa: Noooooo…please…






Anakin Skywalker: But you said you defeated me?!

Zett Jukassa: …my lightsaber…that’s not fair…






Anakin Skywalker: How dare you mock me!!! You are no Master! Why should YOU be on the Council??

Zett Jukassa: …nooooo…(sobbing)…






Obi-Wan Kenobi: ANAKIN! STOP!

Shaak Ti: NOOO!!!






Obi-Wan Kenobi: Let him go, Anakin!

Shaak Ti: This has gone on far enough!!!






Obi-Wan Kenobi: What’s wrong with you?! Have you lost you mind?!

Anakin Skywalker: He deserved it…






Shaak Ti: It’s OK, Zett. It’s all over now. Try to relax.

Zett Jukassa: …(sobbing)…I’m sorry…






Obi-Wan Kenobi: He is only a Youngling, Anakin! They will say things that cannot be taken seriously. You were no different at that age.

Anakin Skywalker: He wanted a lesson…so I gave him one…he was mocking me…so I…I……should check on him…






Anakin Skywalker: Are you alright, Zett? Please excuse my behavior. I was wrong to attack you like that.

Zett Jukassa: …(sobbing)…I’m sorry…I didn’t mean to…






Mace Windu: Impressive, beating a Youngling. Why don’t you try that against me now?
