Who Are You?

The door opens easily and makes little noise. Though Master Kenobi has forbidden students to visit the tower you find yourself walking up the old stone steps. You have your reasons.

The Force tingles in the air around you. In the shadowy light of your glowbar you can make out footprints in the dust. Someone has been here before you.
At the top of the stairs you hesitate. A nightbird cries out somewhere in the darkness. Light flickers from underneath the door before you. Can you hear whispering? Is someone in there now?
You consider turning around and going back to bed, but something tugs at you...
You open the door and step into the tower room. It's very cold...

And empty. Decaying furniture lies scattered around the floor. Tattered pages of some mouldy book flutter half-heartedly in the wind.
Your first sensation is relief - how silly you were to be worried. Nothing here can hurt you, unless you have allergies.
From the window you can see the main Temple compound. The other Jedi are probably sleeping now.

Slowly the hairs on the back of your neck begin to rise. You feel a presence in the room. You turn from the window but see no one. An oppressive air hangs upon this place. A great sadness fills your heart.

As you move towards the door it slowly swings closed, as if pushed by the breeze. The power in your glowbar flickers for a moment and then goes out.
Darkness.

Who are you?

Mm, I came out of curiosity. It overwhelms me sometimes, probably why I used to get into so much trouble. But, now that I've come to embrace the Force, I've seen that it's not curiosity that leads me, but the living Force. It is an honour to meet you, Master. If I may ask, how do you know of the trials of my life?

Being mostly spirit, I see things differently than the living. Your aura tells me much about you, little jedi. It shows strength in the face of adversity... but adversity leaves its mark.

I see you have a new lightsaber on your belt. The tool of a jedi...but not, as some will tell you, the heart of a jedi.

What is in your heart, Rei?

My heart houses many things. Overwhelming love for the people who took me in at the temple and taught me, pain still lingering from my past, the Force... It will take me the rest of my life to sort everything out, and all I can do until then is live for the moment.
