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.

Who are you?

Perhaps we have a different idea of power. To you Sith it might mean control over the universe or other beings. To me it is being able to fully realize one's own potential...To be unafraid, honest, to be real.
To be true to one's own feeling of Love is part of that. Why do we lie to ourselves and pretend we don't love? I would rather be a false Jedi than an emotionless Force puppet.

How can I help you? I will listen to you with an open mind. I will not condemn you. I will not presume to preach to you about what a Jedi should or should not be.
In return, I would like you to help me break the curse that keeps me here.

Go now, and think about what I have said. I will be here waiting...forever.
