Reaver felt someone probe his link to the wampas, It was Will! He sent a last comand to the dark wampas: "Kill them all and your free at last!" He knew the wampas would fight to their deaths no matter what now.
With that task no longer a concern of his, Reaver set about removing suspicion from Hal. He called on the dark side, not from Hal-- he didn't need to use Hals Force connection anymore, Now that he had a stronger living host he could use the Force that surrounded him, he drew it from the ruins, and pulled it into a mental ball, then used it to slam his host's body against the debris he had not too long ago removed himself from. The energy was distinctively Sith, and as it washed over Hal's body it smashed Reaver but more importantly, it would look as though Modero had attacked Hal. And why not? He had! When questioned, Reaver planed to tell the truth....from a certain point of view.
Within moments he was "awakened" by a frantic Will, "What happened? Where's Jayda?!!! Will had to scream to be heard, most of the ruins were beginning to crash down in a cascading effect. Reaver knew that without the dark side preserving the ruins walls Hoth would reclaim the Sith Temple once and for all. So be it Reaver thought but answered, "S-s-sith," he started to cough and the blood he sprayed across Will was real, his own attack had broken a few ribs at least. "Ambushed.....Jayda was taken... Reaver held up Hal's arm for a second then dropped it as though completely out of energy. ..that way...he attacked me to get her to go with him. I don't know how long ago exactly."
Nykon Graves and Truger came running up both panting hard from battle fatigue. Graves looked at Hal, "Hal! Can you walk? Nevermind, Truger help him, the shuttles just ahead, if we hurry we just might catch this Sith and Jayda."
Just then Jayda's ship came flying over a glacier and banking hard to the right before climbing hard for space.
"Sithspit!" Will cursed. "Lets get everyone moving, Bream's not going to be able to hold the wampas off for much longer."
Nykon glanced back the way they had came, where the tunnel broadened Bream had set up with six knights, they were engaging the wampas two at a time. The wampas luckily could only fit through the tunnel in twos so it was looking like it might be under control, but Nykon knew the wampas could always dig new tunnels to re-engage the Jedi in mass.
"Go, I'll go help Bream." Nykon said to Truger and Will. He sprinted off to where Bream was fighting for the lives of all the Jedi on Hoth. Nykon's sabers were ignited as he ran up to Bream, he was done with Hoth, done with the wampas, done playing around.
He blazed past Bream a blur, carving the two wampas the knights were holding back into four parts each, he flowed into the tunnel carving as he went, Bream watched as Nykon's arms seemed to glow a reddish yellow, each strike of his sabers seemed to spark off skull and bone of the wampas, and still he pressed forward.
Bream suddenly heard Nykon's voice as though behind him, "Quickly, fly you fools!" and he knew then that Nykon meant to sacrifice himself so the rest of the Jedi could escape.
Bream Darklighter turned to the eldest of the six Jedi with him, "McFly, run, tell Truger to raise ship!"
McFly looked at Bream like he was crazy, maybe he was- he still wasn't sure- he asked as though he wanted to talk Bream out of it, "What are you planning?" McFly started.
"Hello McFly! This isn't the time! MOVE!!" Bream wasn't going to leave this Nykon to die for him. No one else was dying here on Hoth if he could help it, Bream sprinted up the tunnel after Nykon.
Nykon still moved deeper up the tunnel, he knew he was making a mistake- who enters a structure as it's coming down?!
Yeah, Nykon hadn't thought that one through. Suddenly he was back in the same issue he was in before, only now he still had wampas on his backside.
"DUCK!!!" The word came from behind Nykon, and he didn't question it, he watched a thermal detonator sail past him. Seeing his que, Nykon turned 180 degrees and saw his salvation from a very poor choice in problem solving. He Force amplified his Force Run again, and grabbed Bream as he flew back past him. "This stays between you and me kid." Nykon said smiling. "I owe you one."
"Show me how you run so fast and we'll call it even. Bream said admiring the speed that Nykon was able to generate. Reaching out in the Force Bream lashed out at the walls of the tunnel, helping the ruins come down, and also pinning the wampas inside.
Some might say it wasn't the Jedi way, but Bream didn't care. Many Jedi had died on Hoth, and he'd managed to stop a Jedi Weapon's Master from committing suicide in a very spectacular and bloody way.
Looking up at Nykon Bream said through a smile, "Your crazy you know that?"
Nykon replied, "I think your right. and returned Breams smile as they exited the ruins once and for all. Nykon didn't slow, he still had to get the two of them to the shuttle before Truger took off.
-Bring on your thousands, one at a time or all in a rush. I don't give a damn. None shall pass.
-To become a Jedi, it is not the Force one must learn to control but oneself.
