The Sith Lords Apprentice

"News of your mission, my apprentice?" the Sith Lord looked down at me from his throne, his hologram casting eerie shadows against the temple walls. The wet stone floor was hard against my shoes but I cared not for such trivialities.

"The commander has been seized, we are currently transporting him to our prison where we shall soon gain all the information we need," there was a hint of pride in my voice.

"Do not be so sure that you have succeeded, were you spotted, my Cathar General?" I coughed slightly and sighed.

"There was one person, though they were hidden at the time, who possessed great power, that may have seen me," I continued to look at the floor as I said this, not daring to meet his eyes.

"May... or did?"

"My master I cannot be sure, but they disappeared as soon as I noticed them," there was silence then as I awaited a response, finally I said, "what is thy bidding, my master?" I waited a little longer.

"You must find this person and destroy them, no mercy, no chances, no hesitation. No matter what they are, you must not let it interfere with our plans!" With that the hologram dissipated. The room was cast into darkness. I moved to the doors and opened them, looking out onto the snowy expanse of the surface of Csilla. I had chosen this place for it seemed strong in the dark side and I wanted to discover more of this Sith temple. My thick, long black cloak hid my feline, Cathar face, the once golden mane slowly turning white as my red eyes looked out, my thick brows sheltering them from the snow that streamed around me in a sheet white vortex.

"Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me."

I was the Sith Lords apprentice, I must succeed, failure was not an option after a millenia of planning. I took out my saber staff. A bright beam of red jutted out as I marked the place where I had seized him. They had to be around there still... but where?

The End
