Their response to this gesture is just to glower harder. They know she has no reason to help them.

She sighs.

"And mind the other human. He's probably going to show up at the end and try to steal your tablet."

And then she walks off.

Permalink

Glower.


High road or low road on the way back?

Permalink

... She does not want to go up those stairs while tired and emotionally exhausted.

Low road.

Permalink


Posture guy is lurking in those shadows up ahead. He gets in her way.

"Give me your tablet." Looooom.

Permalink

She looks incredibly unimpressed with him.

"I just took out half a pack of tuk'ata by myself and am completely unharmed." Pause. "Fuck off."

Permalink

"I don't believe you."

Permalink

"You can feel free to check."

Permalink

He unsheathes his sword.

"I won't tell you again, girl."

Permalink

... Nariveth giggles a little. It is not a nice giggle.

Once, she witnessed a Sith creating lightning from their fingertips.

She holds out her hand, and channels some hatred.

Permalink

Power surges, and arcs crackling through the air. The lightning strikes Posture, and his whole body seizes. He drops to the ground and screams in pain. Sparks play across his torso while he writhes in agony.

Permalink

She inhales sharply and stops when he's down. Something in the back of her head notes that this is a very bad thing for her to have done, and she drops her hand.

But she's still angry, and it's so tempting to shock him again, or just be done with him and kill him.

Instead, she leans down and repeats, "Fuck off."

And then she keeps walking. She can freak out after the tablet has been handed to the overseer. She will not freak out until after she has handed in the tablet. Breathe. Breathe. Do not think about how much you would so like to kill him. Keep walking. Breathe.

Permalink

He gets his breath back before she's gone too far.

"You fucking bitch!" he shouts. "I'll kill you! I will rip your heart out and feed it to you! Do you hear me! I! Will! Kill! You!"

Permalink

She doesn't turn around. She doesn't shock him again. She doesn't snarl that he's not as scary as he thinks he is. She doesn't let herself turn around and take out her bad day on him.

She keeps walking.

Breathe. Breathe.

Permalink

He doesn't follow. Either because he can't stand yet, or he's not actually that eager to fight her again.

 

There's the academy up ahead. It looks like there's an elevator up now.

Permalink

Well, she can just take the elevator up, now can't she?

Permalink

She's probably earned that much. Does she want to go turn in her tablet now, or wait til later?

Permalink

Now. She wants to turn it in now.

Permalink

The overseer is waiting in his office.

"Back already? Do you want me to just put you out of my misery, slave?"

Permalink

... She wordlessly deposits her tablet on his table with a loud thunk.

And then she smiles.

"No."

Permalink

The overseer looks down at the tablet, then back up at her. A vein twitches in his temple.

"Get out."

Permalink

"Are there any other trials today?" she asks.

Permalink

"Just. Leave."

"Slave."

Permalink

"Are there. Any other. Trials today?"

Permalink

"No." His teeth are audibly grinding.
