This is an extra part of my JK story. Remi is recovering from something that made her crazy. She gets a visit from a few friends from her past. Spoilers for JK story line Quesh and Tython.
Remi sat by the waterfall above the training grounds. She was not meditating, she did not do that anymore. If she did, she could accidentally reach for the Force, and if she did that, she would go insane. She leaned against the sun-warmed rock and looked at the sky. She wondered where Scourge was and what he was doing. She was not allowed to use the Holonet or any communications devices. Now that she was sane again, all she wanted to do was leave Tython and go back to being Grey.
“You are thinking of leaving?” A soft slightly accented voice asked. Remi turned to see a familiar Jedi, Bengal Morr standing beside two other Jedi, Sajar and Ako Domi.
“Is this the former crazy dark side user club meeting?” Remi asked.
Bengal blinked his large Nautilan eyes. “What do you mean former?”
Remi chuckled despite herself.
“Do you remember when you saw me on Corellia?” Bengal asked. “I suggested that what I did here helped to make you who you were.”
“Yeah I told you to stop being full of yourself.”
He nodded, bowing a little. “I thought that I had found healing, I thought I was better, but I was still quite insane wasn’t I?”
“You think you are healed enough to leave. You think you are sane. Can a crazy person really know if they are sane?” Ako Domi asked.
“If that’s the case then I’ll never know, will I?”
“True healing must be tested.” Sajar replied. “When you met me on Quesh I had failed my first test. I was not ready. I did not realize I was mad when I threw the corpses of those Imperials at their comrades. Can you say you have tested your sanity?”
“You guys really aren’t helping.” Remi said leaning against the rock closing her eyes, the peace of the afternoon disrupted by this well-meaning group of slightly creepy Jedi.
“Let me ask you this then,” Bengal said very gently. “Are we really here?”
Remi opened her eyes. She was alone.
