Dream within a dream
JK chapter 2 spoilers
She laughed, it was rich and soulful, a laugh that rang from the gut, and shook her whole body. He had a sardonic grin on his face, his punch line having caused the outburst. She looked back at him, his eyes sparkled with wit and mischief, and something more. Regaining her composure she threw her arms around him and pulled him into a kiss. The kiss was wrong, against the rules, but her heart said it was right, that the rules were wrong, that a kiss couldn’t lead to what they said it could. His face faded from view, the smile fading, he looked worried.
She was on a snow swept mesa, gentle flakes fell around her, the music filled her soul up and her body moved with the frozen droplets. She danced, her hands reached to the sky, her legs and toes pointed, her body bending and moving, getting caught in a spin, her legs pumped, and she went around, sweeping the snow from the ground and mixing it with the snow falling around her. The dance was wrong, it was against the rules, but her heart said it was right, it was no different from when she practiced her forms she argued. It stirs up too much passion, too much emotion they countered. She danced in secret.
The locket spun in the sunlight, gems blinking in the light. She opened it and stared at the smiling faces, faces she loved, faces that were important to her. They were her family, she missed them, they had stopped writing, and her heart hurt. The attachment was wrong, against the rules, it was for the best, she could focus on her training. She searched for them anyways.
Kianna woke, held her head. The room was still dark but he was there, he was always there, testing her, challenging her, watching her, and waiting.
“What did you dream of?” he asked in his darkly rich voice.
“I dreamt of…”She felt embarrassment, shame.
“Speak Acolyte.” He commanded, though not harshly, he was never harsh, not like the overseer.
“I dreamt of, love, and dancing.” She replied, avoiding his red gaze.
“Do you dance?” He sounded almost surprised.
“I did, but the Jedi frowned upon it.”
“Yet you continued?” How did he know?
He nodded, satisfied with her answer.
"Yes my Lord Scourge." She obeyed and followed him out into the metal halls eager to meet her next challenge, the dark side curling around her, like a lover.
