Mirran Kai    59

Mirran decided today to devote herself to pure meditation. She looked contemplative as she went out of the Enclave. She shivered a bit, there was a bit of a chill in the air and she pulled her robes closer to her. 

 

She tried to sit down to begin meditation but a gust of wind blew through the fields of Dantooine. And then the clouds rolled in and a light drizzle started coming in. So much for trying to meditate. The rain began to slowly stop being a drizzle and began to come down pouring down. Mirran sighed, so much for trying to connect with the Force through the planet itself. She was thoroughly becoming soaked and so she suddenly began to retreat from the fields and to the inner part of the Enclave. She muttered more to herself. 

 

"It would have to rain...."

Sidara had been sitting under a veranda in the interior courtyard of the Enclave. She had a datacube in front of her with a series of treatises on the early formation of the Order. It had seemed like a good place to start with her studies here, a foundation if nothing else.  The drizzling rain had started sometime earlier, but she paid it no mind. Alpheridies' rain had been colder than this, even in the summertime. Right now the drizzle was warm and inviting.  She held her hand out from under the veranda to let the warm rain land on her fingers. 

 

She shifted in her seat, the tunic was acclimating, but still every time it pulled in a way she wasn't familiar with, the twinge of memory returned. She really wished they'd allowed her to keep her vest at the very least, it was comfortable and easy to move in. But as she had been told, attachment was forbidden to Jedi. Not that she really understood the reasoning.

 

She sighed softly, even that came out ragged and weak, when was the last time she'd said anything? She couldn't remember, didn't really feel like it had mattered anyways.  Still, she enjoyed the comfortable weather and went back to her reading.

 

Footsteps on the stone floor had her turning her attention back to the world around her. She could feel the aura approaching her, there was a woman moving away from the rain and into cover nearby. Another Miraluka, Sidara hadn't seen many of them since arriving on Dantooine.

 

A sense of...something settled in her gut, should she go and say hi? Did she want the company? She couldn't decide, the familiar presence of a fellow Miraluka warring with her inclination to read. The Force offered no handy answers either, just a steady thrum of comfort bubbling beneath her skin.

 

She sighed, and settled further in. If the other Miraluka wanted company, then surely she would seek it out, right? Sidara would allow the decision to fall to her, bringing back up her datacube she continued reading. She did, however, keep some focus on the other woman, waiting to see what she would do.

Kale Sarkan    4

It was definitely not a good idea to go out to exercise that day. Kale was used to work out everyday, and since the Jedi moved out of Coruscant he had more chances to do that outdoors, which he actually loved. In the city it was not that refreshing to go out, it was all very crowded and noisy, but there he could have quietness and some peace to just run.

However, the weather was not on his side that day, he was only like ten minutes into his exercise when the sky started to fill with clouds and the day got darkened:

 

-        Shit… - he mumbled under his breath, he wasn´t sure how far he got from the enclave but sure as hell he was going to get wet if it started raining, which didn´t take long to happen.

 

He started running, but of course not the exercising and relaxing running he was doing just a few moments ago, but a fast one to try and get cover as soon as possible… He needed to start trying to know how the weather worked in that forsaken planet. He growled as he finally spotted the building he had as a goal and managed to get inside, though his hair was attached to his head because of the water and his robes were not in better state.

 

When he entered he saw a girl he knew of sight, she was there from the very first time he got to the temple on Coruscant, she was a Miraluka, apparently, he didn´t know much about that race but anyways, not that the girl was too talkative to explain anything. In five years they only exchanged a few cordial words, but it didn´t matter at the time, he was a little pissed because of his working out session being interrupted:

 

-        Dangit! – He said, moving his legs and arms and then rubbing his hair with his hands to try and get the water out – a hell of a weather we´ve got all of sudden, huh?

Mirran took a deep calming breath. The weather shouldn't define a lack of discipline she realized that. Just because the elements had turned against her did not mean she couldn't meditate. She could easily go back to her chamber and medita...

 

Dangit!  a hell of a weather we´ve got all of sudden, huh?

 

Mirran cringed, her thoughts interrupted. There certainly seemed to be a lot of new initiates lately. She had managed to over come her shyness with Char and Magnus but this fellow....she looked thoughtful for a moment. She had seen him before on Courscant but she had been just barely 14 galactic standard years of age. She had been really shy and reclusive even then. 

 

She nodded at him and then licked her lips. "Yes....I was planning on meditating in the fields. It's calm....peaceful....a good place to study as well." 

 

She paused. "You....you look familiar.....did we have classes or perhaps a master in common, maybe?  Master Kerian Kardan for basic lightsaber training maybe? Or Master Yan Rian for fundamentals of the Jedi code. Or maybe we saw each other in the archives." 

 

Mirran frowned she had a sense that someone was staring at them...well her. She cringed. She narrowed her Force sight and found it was coming from another Miraluka...uhh...she hadn't seen or been around another Miraluka in years, well besides her parents. However, her parents really didn't count. They were basically atypical to other Miraluka. She had learned later as girl growing up that her parents were quintessentially political exiles. The Miralukan government had given them a post on Couruscant to keep their more radical political views and views on the Force away from other Miralukas. Her parents wanted Alpharides to join the Republic and  for a lot of their children to become Jedi. Mirran had been given to the Jedi as a child as a token of good will to the Jedi and to the Republic towards a future they saw in the Force. Her parents had been less than pleased with the seperation of the Jedi from the Republic. Mirran gazed toward the other Miraluka. What was another of her race like? Mirran worried that she was too humanish in nature and that her actions were more like a human than a Miraluka.

Another person had arrived,  a human this time. His aura was bright and bubbly,  she could see it in the way he held himself and his speech. The Force swirled around him and the woman. Sidara took a deep breath and shook her head to clear her senses,  a twinge of pain and guilt washed over her as she thought of Merrick. She'd been cruel to her friend, he hadn't killed her father, he wasn't responsible.  But she'd been unable to realize it at the time, she'd turned inwards, thrown herself into training with her mother, and abandoned him.

 

That was in the past now, he was back on Alpheridies, and she was here on Dantooine.  Sidara didn't know what to do about that in the future though, would she graduate one day, become a Jedi Knight and be able to travel wherever she wanted, could she go back to Alpheridies and apologize.

 

The girl seemed shy, as if Sidara had room to talk, her aura shifting in ways Sidara couldn't place. She felt a focus on her, the other Miraluka had sensed her observation, and Sidara felt the gaze on her in turn.  What did she do? Her first instinct was to go back to her reading, ignore both of them and wait for them to leave her be. The instinct was strong, so much so that she felt her attention being drawn to the datacube in her lap.

 

But, wasn't she here to learn? These students were undoubtedly more skilled than she was, having training from actual Knights and Masters. Her mother had never made it beyond padawan and her skills had been rusty from years of not using them.  Would it be so bad to have some form of companionship? The girl seemed shy and unlikely to initiate too much conversation, and the guy was talkative enough that he could easily dominate the conversation for her.

 

"..." She tried to speak, to say hello, but her voice came out as a ragged whisper and she coughed slightly. It was a simple fact that vocal chords were a form of muscle, and the lack of use would atrophy them.  Even a simple hello seemed too much for her.  

 

Instead she simply stared back at the Miraluka girl, and did her best to look friendly and inviting, a poor attempt knowing her, but an attempt nonetheless.

Kale Sarkan    4

He didn´t really look at the girl in the face until he was done with his hair and managed to more or less take the water out of his robes by pressing his hands on them and slicing them down, the floor went a little wet, but better that than catching g a flu or something.

He shrugged “I just go out to work out, it would be a good change to do it in a natural environment for a chance, unlike Coruscant” he sighed and gave the girl a smile, looking at her when he raised his head, once he was done.

 

“Yeah, I have been in the enclave for five years now. We have shared a few classes together but I don’t think we had never talked much that cordialities” he explained “so I guess introductions are in order. Name is Kale Sarkan.” He did the usual Jedi bow to greet the girl.

 

He frowned a little when the situation changed; apparently the girl had sensed something or someone. He hadn´t yet sharpened his force senses so he just looked the same direction as her. And there was another girl… Another Miraluka? He didn´t recall seeing her around. In fact, he couldn´t remember seeing any other individual from that race apart from the girl he was already talking to.

 

Surprisingly, the second Miraluka approached herself, and tried to speak. Wow, that was a weird attempt voice there, the young Jedi couldn’t help but chuckle a little with that “Oh my, that´s a raspy voice you´ve got there! It´s understandable though, with weather in this planet it´s easy to get sick” he said, casually “I know we are supposed to not get sick and stuff through the force but I am not versed in that yet. I´m Kale, by the way, we were just complaining about the rain screwing up our plans.”

There was something a bit obnoxious and almost overbearing about this initiate. Perhaps it was why Mirran had never taken the time to get to know him in the first place. His emotional level seemed a bit charged and a bit out of place for a Jedi initiate or perhaps she simply was not used to his exuberance. She heard the dripping of water from his clothing and she shivered a bit that reminded her, she needed to change her robes before she came down with a cold. She suddenly sneezed. Yes, she needed a new outer robe. 

 

She pressed a button on her wrist and said softly. "Kaybee can you bring me a new outer robe.....please." 

 

The droid responded. "As you wish....mistress." 

 

She turned her attention to the man or tried to, something about him almost grated on her nerves, not even Char or Magnus was this way with her. Perhaps they were patient with her or perhaps their presence in the Force was not as overwhelming to her.

 

“I just go out to work out, it would be a good change to do it in a natural environment for a chance, unlike Coruscant 

 

It made sense that this young man liked working out. He needed to workout to burn off some of his excess energy. 

 

She nodded and said nothing, she did agree though. Coruscant was a bit much even for her. It had a very lively feeling to it but it was crowded and overwhelmed her. Dantooine was quiet, peaceful, and serene. Much more serene, although that remained to be seen seeing how many new initiates were coming. 

 

“Yeah, I have been in the enclave for five years now. We have shared a few classes together but I don’t think we had never talked much that cordialities so I guess introductions are in order. Name is Kale Sarkan."

 

"Mirran. Mirran Kai." 

 

Her head turned toward the raspiness of the other Miraluka. She didn't know what to make of her. Mirran bowed her head a bit toward her. "I...it is a pleasure to meet another...another....Miraluka." 

 

Mirran blushed a bit, she felt awkward toward the other Miraluka. Don't be silly, Mirran, she's not going to judge you over the actions of your parents. You are your own person.

Sidara considered her options carefully, and a bit nervously, it had been so long. Could she even speak still? She'd tried to greet them just a second ago and failed miserably.  The Miraluka across from her was nervous and apparently a bit shy. Sidara didn't know how to deal with that, would she take offense if Sidara said nothing, or would she simply retreat inwards at an apparent rejection.

 

Both were undesired outcomes, but outcomes that Sidara did not know how to prevent, all she could do was make an attempt at a greeting.  She breathed in, called on the Force, for that reassuring warmth and tried her best.

 

"hello." The word came out soft, and horribly ragged, even she couldn't help but wince slightly at how dead it sounded. Like some dying rasp, the vocal chords were muscles and like any muscle they would atrophy from lack of use.  She hadn't spoken for close to a year now, and it showed.
