Updated Knight of Honor!

Enjoy!! Very Happy

Chapter 17

Excerpt:
Dusty hurried to the door, flashing a mischievous grin at Jas. However, when he opened the door they saw a young man, probably no older than sixteen years old, standing there. He was dressed in the plain clothing of a personal messenger, his tunic and pants a dull yellow. His shin-high boots were worn and dull, their deep brown now faded to a dark tan. The boy's auburn hair was cut short, and his light brown eyes sparkled with curiosity and awe at the four identical men and their small armament that was neatly scattered around the suite.

"I think you have the wrong room," Dusty said as he crossed his arms over his chest, smiling with that jovial charm of his he liked to exhibit around civilians.

The young man pulled his thoughts back from wherever they had been and nervously scratched at the back of his head. "Um, I've been asked to summon the one of you called Jas."

Dusty turned to Jas and winked at him. "Taylir Les'ika akay vaar'tur."

Jas fought to keep his heart from rushing while he tried to contain his embarrassment in front of Dusty, especially since his brother had just told him to "hold Les'ika until morning," and Jas knew exactly what Dusty meant by that.

Updated Knight of Honor!

Chapter 18

Excerpt:
"Because I'm no longer fighting for the Republic," Jas responded softly and without hesitation, keeping his traitorous thoughts contained between the two of them. He understood so very clearly now Dusty's motives after Denon and he empathized with him more than his brother will ever know. "I'm fighting for her – for the princess – and as long as I know she's safe then I can do my job in this war without worrying about her."

Tarj shook his head, not certain if he felt his brother was insane or needed to be admired. "You're talking like a traitor."

Jas swallowed hard. "No, ner vod, I'm talking like a man, something no one ever wanted us to be."

I finally updated Knight of Honor. It was therapy for me, and I think this chapter offers a positive outlook, something I need right now.

Knight of Honor - Chapter 19

Excerpt:
"My father said we can be together," Arlesse said quickly, making herself say what needed to be said before there was no more time to do so. "There's an ancient law no one uses anymore because there has been no need in centuries, but the law is still valid."

Jas felt like someone had just kicked him in the chest, knocking the air from his lungs. He was still trying to comprehend that Les'ika was actually standing before him again, and now he was entirely confused at the concept of being able to legally prolong his time with her.

Arlesse took a couple more steps towards Jas and stopped when she was within arms' length of him. She shook her head, thinking that maybe Jas didn't understand what she was trying to say so she began explaining it again in a calmer tone. "My father spoke with me this morning. He said if you vow to be my knight, we can be together."


[edit 7-5-10: Just realized the chapter here is 19, not 20]

I just realized today that I forgot to update Chapter 20, and I just posted Chapter 21 tonight.

Link for Chapter 20:
Knight of Honor: Chapter 20

Excerpt for Chapter 20:
Tarj took off his buy'ce as he approached her and realized it was something he always did when addressing Jas' girl. It was nothing but a small gesture to return the kindness she had always shown him, but he could see that it mattered a great deal to her. And, Tarj understood why it meant so much to see his face. It allowed him to be unhidden in their conversations, showing that he was still a human and there was something comforting in the vulnerability they both shared. Tarj thought it somehow made him stronger to be revealed so often because it was something he had never seen any of the new clones do for any of the civilians.

Stepping close to the princess, Tarj lowered his voice. "They're coming for you."

Arlesse looked to him puzzled, entirely not understanding why he seemed so troubled. "Who is…"

"Moff Harkin has issued an arrest on all the nobles, starting with the royal family. Your father and cousin have already been taken."


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Link for Chapter 21:
Knight of Honor: Chapter 21

Excerpt for Chapter 21:
Ordo carried on with his task of setting a datapad on the table while Skirata nestled into the seat that was obviously meant for him. The short sergeant sat up straight but looked comfortable, his eyes shifting between the two former commandos, his face revealing nothing about what they had found in their research on Tochin.

Ordo turned on the datapad so that it brought up images and text in a holo-projection above the tabletop.

"The Imperials have pretty much taken over Tochin," Ordo started. "We've got information that a young moff named Gillard Harkin is in charge now, having all but disbanded the monarchy."

"What does that mean?" Jas asked, fearing the worst for Les'ika.

"It means he did a clean sweep of the royalty," Skirata explained. "There was supposed evidence that members of the royal establishment were planning to overthrow the Imperial involvement."

Jas leaned back against the wall, feeling his face go pale and rubbed his forehead with the palm of his hand. "So, she's dead, too?"

Knight of Honor Updated!

Knight of Honor: Chapter 22

Excerpt:
Gathering her strength finally, Arlesse swallowed hard and found her voice again. Even though her words were shaky, she needed simple answers, easy explanations that didn't elaborate into fancy speeches. "What do you want from me?"

Gillard took her hand tighter, grateful that the conversation had finally turned to where he needed it. Regardless of what her status had been on this world and how she was able to hide behind others, the time had come for this princess to take a less veiled position in her society. However, the thought of telling her that had released a nagging bite of nervousness that clung to the back of his mind.

Collecting his thoughts, Gillard decided to ease her into the answer to her inquiry. "My advisors had warned me that questions would eventually arise as to your purpose here, especially since I have not taken any constructive actions yet towards you. They have recommended I take one of two suggestions. The first is to remove you from your high position of status since it outranks mine."

Before Harkin could continue, Arlesse was pulling her hand away and trying to step away from him. She knew what the second suggestion would entail, and she feared hearing those kinds of words from him.

Gillard refused to back down now, knowing what he had to ask of her. He stepped closer and even though he took her hand tighter, he maintained a gentle touch. "Your people need a symbol of their old ways, someone to let them know that they still have something of their past to cling onto. I need you, just as they do."

Arlesse brought her eyes to his now, and she could think of nothing but Jas.

Knight of Honor updated!

Knight of Honor: Chapter 23

Excerpt:
Jas took a quick look at the man, and he thought he recognized the dark hair and dark eyes that were the features of this human. Then, the HUD in his helmet brought up a profile, identifying the man as former palace guard Captain Davi Saun, and Jas realized this was the same guard who tried to block Les'ika from catching up with Crimson in the hangar the day they departed Tochin almost a year ago.

Moving quickly and unexpectedly, Jas brought a hand forward, catching the blaster in one hand and with the other he slammed Saun into the bar. Shoving his face onto the sticky wooden counter, Jas set Saun's blaster into his belt and twisted the former guard's arm behind his back, pinning him there. For a moment, Jas thought it was pathetic how Saun hadn't even put up a decent fight, and he understood now how Hazar had kidnapped Les'ika so easily. If this was any indication of the kinds of training these guards had, then any regrets Jas once had about pinning Tarj on this world to protect her were now instantly dissolved.

Knight of Honor Updated.

Knight of Honor - Chapter 24

Excerpt:
"Because I'm a sick shabuir," Tarj responded as he eyes came towards Harkin's.

Gillard snorted a quick laugh at Tarj's answer. Then, he crossed his arms over his chest. "How does a clone inspire that kind of devotion from a princess? They both had to know that what they sought was nothing more than a fantasy."

Tarj turned his helmet in his hands and then put it back over his head. He wouldn't let Harkin see how he truly felt about Jas, and with the helmet on he could simply state facts without the emotions in his eyes to reveal that Jas was his brother through blood and comradeship. "She does not see him as a clone. She sees the good man he is, and I know that he would die for her without question. She chose him because he is a man who understands honor."

Gillard turned his eyes away from Tarj and let them wander towards the doorway where Arlesse had exited. His voice was flat, factual rather than accusatory. "I can see that you love her, too, even though you probably don't understand that concept."

"I was ordered to keep her safe," Tarj responded automatically. Then, he decided to explain himself further, to make his intentions absolutely clear to Harkin. "In the months that I have had this responsibility, I had adopted her as my sister, and my commitment to her has now become a choice rather than an order. So, if that is how you define love, then I fit your definition."

Knight of Honor Updated...on my birthday. jocolor cheers

Knight of Honor: Chapter 25

Excerpt:
A wandering older man was dressed in a haphazard array of farmers' clothing, and the outfit looked out of place on him, almost as though his clothing was as lost as he was. After a moment, this man brought his attention to the princess, and despite the flash of pity that crossed his stern features, Tarj instantly felt himself go on edge. Only a fraction of a second later did Tarj understand his concerns as he recognized that this man was Davi Saun. Quickly remembering all too well their arguments in regards to Arlesse's safety, Tarj reflexively clenched a fist and forced himself to avoid giving Saun the broken nose he felt the man deserved.

Distracting Tarj from his want of revenge, a woman stepped towards him, and her clothing was above the standards of the farmers but not quite enough to signify nobility. Her dull orange, shin-length skirt brushed loosely against her dark brown, knee-high boots. Her off-white shirt was long-sleeved, and absent from it were decorations and adornments. The dull-orange vest that matched her skirt was also without embellishments as the clothing was more for work than socializing.

The woman's long, dark hair was loosely pulled from her face and held in place with a couple of brown strings, the style more practical than ornate. Tarj noticed that the locks of her hair were straight, and it took him a few seconds before he recognized Chora Wsau without the severe bun that she always wore behind her head.

Her smile was self-deprecating, and she shrugged her shoulders loosely. "Didn't ever expect to see me like this, did you?"

Knight of Honor Updated!! Just in time for New Year's, too!! cheers

Knight of Honor: Chapter 26

Excerpt:
Tarj sighed as though frustrated with Dusty's lack of comprehension to his insult while they continued moving. "No, I meant you're a di'kut because this whole shabla plan is never going to work."

Dusty laughed now. "That's because you didn't think of it, right?"

"Exactly," Tarj grumbled, squeezing past a tight set of shelves. Then, the light-hearted moment was gone, and Tarj grew serious again. His tone was strict, his eyes no longer playful. "I don't believe that Harkin is just going to ignore Arlesse's absence. Yes, it's great that you're going to slip her out under his nose like that, but in his strange, political manner, he's grown to care about her. It's not likely that he will simply walk away at her disappearance."

"You mean to tell me that the man who mass executed her family and several of your squad brothers actually has a shred of decency for her?" Dusty questioned, his tone mocking the moff's actions.

"Apparently," Tarj breathed, trying to envision his brothers' insane plan in action while mentally preparing alternative pathways in their escape. He didn't like the idea of having just one exit path, even though there really was no other way that Tarj could think of to do this. He had his mind running for the last few weeks of an escape, and this crazy scheme that his brothers had devised was the best solution he had seen so far. "I think Harkin means well with his intentions for Arlesse, and she had softened him, at least for now."

Dusty turned towards Tarj for a brief second and paused to get his point across with seriousness. "And, that's what worries me. What would happen to her if Harkin changes his affections?"

Tarj grabbed Dusty's shoulder and pressed his fingers in warning. "You can't fail with getting her safe. We can't trust these Imperials. Words are not honor-bound with them like they are with us."

Knight of Honor Updated!! cheers

Knight of Honor: Chapter 27

Excerpt:
Tarj stood guard, prepared to stay behind and sacrifice himself if necessary so that his brothers and Arlesse could get safely free. Tarj had argued with Dusty that if he was going to be captured or killed for deserting, he didn't want Dusty's smart mouth and stupid grin joining him in the prison or the gallows. It was enough of a ruse that Dusty relented by saying he was the prettier of the two of them anyway and that Saun was supposed to follow them out to hide the tunnel opening. Then, without any further instructions or teasing, Dusty quickly disappeared into the ground.

Tarj knew it was his turn next, and he didn't totally like the idea of being trapped in a tunnel with few avenues for escape. Still, this was the plan, and Tarj had already tried to think of a new strategy with no success. Dusty and Jas had already run that gambit with the palace guardians they befriended so it was either deal with the tunnel or risk being shot for betrayal to the Empire.

Not bothering to mull over the obvious, Tarj stood before the hole and peered down, taking a deep breath.

"Wait!" a woman's voice called.

Knight of Honor Updated!!

Knight of Honor: Chapter 28

Excerpt:
Tarj was the first to speak, skepticism clearly evident in his tone. He may have been out of combat for quite some time, but he still retained everything he was ever trained when it came to security and making decisions for a squad. "I don't like it. Tochin might not have the busiest ports, and for it to be this quiet, they must have put a lockdown in place."

"Agreed," Dusty responded. "We both know that the first basic rule of tracking is to close off the exits. Even late-model stormies would be taught that."

Chora wasn't one who wanted to sit back in the shadows and wait for rescuing. She had her own knowledge and training, and she wanted to help brainstorm some way for them to escape so she chimed in with her own thoughts. "I don't plan to be trapped here until Harkin calls off the search. We need to do recon and find out what we're really up against."

Dusty snickered at Chora's enthusiasm and looked to Tarj. "She's so innocent. Guess you two didn't have much time to get acquainted before she followed you down the mole-rat hole?"

Knight of Honor Updated!

Republic Commando: Knight of Honor: Chapter 29

Excerpt:
Gillard studied the clone's dark irises, realizing suddenly that the raw devotion that Arlesse had so clearly exhibited for this man was exactly the same that was in his eyes. The world Gillard had wished to visit in Arlesse's eyes had been closed off from him because this cloned man's loyalty to Arlesse was the only key that would ever unlock her barriers. It was an unparalleled connection that Gillard had never seen before. Their commitment was founded on innocent trust and blind compassion. This clone was Arlesse's champion, a man who honored her and yet was never anything other than her equal.

And so it now ends...

Knight of Honor has received it's final update, as the tale concludes.

Republic Commando: Knight of Honor: Chapter 30

Excerpt:
"Gillard, I know you don't believe me, but the princess would have been your political downfall. She disrupted your ability to see clearly and be a proper leader. Without her around to be a distraction, you can now take charge of this world the way you have been expected to do."

The moff glanced again at one of the portraits, not seeing a political threat but a young and uncertain woman who just wanted to live a life without complications.

He voiced his question softly, concern etched in his words. "Did anyone ever see her as anything other than a Tochinite and a threat to the Empire?"

Omul leaned on his cane, studying the young moff and spoke as though the answer were obvious. "Her father and her cousin tried to lead a rebellion…"

"And acted completely outside of Arlesse's knowledge," Gillard defended feeling his frustration starting anew. "They purposefully kept Arlesse unaware of their plans to ensure she would not be judged wrongly."

Omul sighed softly and then decided for a different tactic. He could see that he was approaching the subject from the wrong angle. Politically the princess was no threat, but emotionally, she would have unwound the moff's experience and training. "Arlesse never would have loved you, Gillard, and I know you know that."
