Aira-ty stumbled and rolled, banging her head against the sides of the tunnel as she tumbled downards. She was finally spat out, landing flat on her ass, in a small cave lit by blue glowing crystals.
“Ow.” she muttered, rubbing her butt. “Jango? Jango can you hear me?”
Her comlink gave her nothing but static and she cursed as she removed her helmet. Just her luck. Reaching down, she pulled out a glowstick and began examining the cave. Aside from the crystals there was nothing of interest—wait—she jerked the light around and froze as a face peered at her from out of the gloom. Her face.
“Wh—what?” she stammered, drawing her pistol and pointing it as the apparition walked forwards into the light.
“Hello Aira-ty.” she said.
Aira-ty's heart thudded in her chest. “Wh—who are you?”
“I am you...or I could have been.” the woman said quietly, her expression sad. “I am what you could have been.”
Aira-ty swallowed as she came closer. “S—stay back, is this some kind of sick joke? VERY FUNNY JANGO! YOU CAN COME OUT NOW!” she shouted.
“Do not deny me.” the figure said forlornly. “Do not deny yourself.”
“I gave that life up!” Aira-ty shouted, shaking nervously. “STOP! I will shoot you!”
The apparition continued forwards and Aira-ty pulled the trigger. The shot sailed straight through the phantom and Aira-ty staggered back away from it, falling over, her weapon raised and shaking as she shook her head.
“JANGO!” she screamed as the apparition stood before her, its expression accusatory as it reached out for her.
“You've forsaken yourself.” it murmured. “Why do you deny what you are? Why did you give up your future?”
“Aira-ty!” came Jango's voice from behind her.
Aira-ty's head snapped around to see him coming towards her. Her head jerked around to face the ghost but there was no sign of it. She sat there, her pistol pointing at nothing as Jango knelt besides her.
“Are you alright?” he asked, placing a hand on her shoulder. “You're shaking.”
Aira-ty stared at the emptiness where the apparition had been but a moment before and then turned to Jango, her voice cracking as she sobbed against his armored shoulder, clinging to him desperately.
“You're my future, you and only you do you hear me?” she cried. “I don't want any other future but the one I share with you!”
Jango knelt there for a moment, frozen in confusion before he put his hands around her gently.
“It's okay.” he said quietly. “Let's go, we have a job to finish.”
Aira-ty nodded, getting to her feet and wiping her eyes as she swallowed.
“R—right, lets go.”
She put her helmet back on, scooping it up from the ground as she followed Jango. She cast one last glance back over her shoulder and felt her blood freeze cold. The apparition was standing there amongst the blue glow, its gaze fixed on her with a sad smile.
“You cannot escape your fate.” it whispered forlornly.
Aira-ty jerked around and quickened her pace, gripping Jango's arm tightly as she tried to shut the haunting voice from her mind.
“It is...inevitable.” it whispered.

am i just having an off day and can't figure out what order i have to read these in?
SlingBlade87 Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2015
No, thatisn't justyou.

That's entirely my fault asthese arein no particular order andit is more or less up to the reader to piece them together.

The main storyline isn't so disjointed, but these little scenesI do however...yeah you may hate me for that if you choose.

SlingBlade87 Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2013
Heh, you are not hte first person to share that opinion with me honestly.

We shall see.

Wow! You amazed me again! *w* I think you couldn't make a longer story from this little scene, so I think it's perfect!
Did I mention how I love the back stories what you give to these scenes? You always come up with so good ideas! I'm fond of the fact that there's Jango with her, it gives a nice touch to the scene. Especially that Jango after he accepted the fact that Aira was a jedi he started to tease her, if she for example didn't kill someone instantly he said that "oh sorry I forgot that jedi are too soft-hearted for this job..." to which Aira usually replied like "Oh shut up you peasant..." Because of Jango's farmer boy past. x'3

And I always get so emotional when I read your works, I can't believe it. x'D You always find the perfect mood!

Oh no, you can use the pic of course! ^^ I don't really know details about uploading text deviations (never did it so far), but if you think you want to use a drawing from me as an illustration just go ahead. : )

And thank you so much for writing this up! I really enjoyed it! ;w;
SlingBlade87 Featured By Owner Mar 21, 2013
I'm glad you enjoyed it so much, I was concerned I'd made Aira-ty too emotional...but it seems everyone likes it.

Again, very happy to hear you liked it.
rayn44 Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hm I think if a ghost who looks just like you and knows everything about you appears in front of you and starts to speak to you that can cause panic and make you emotional... x'D And sometimes this theme really makes Aira-ty emotional, I mean her past.

Haha of course I LOVE it! ^^
SlingBlade87 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2013
Yeah, I can certainly understand getting emotional about her past...especially with THAT past.

Glad you liked it so much.
