Prompt: Backfired Plans
Characters: Malavai Quinn and Syla (from NSP)
Failed to Kill the Whole in Part
He was dying. He could tell. Cold seeped into every limb and slowly moved toward his core. He could taste the copper tang of blood on his tongue and he knew it to be his own. His eyes rolled around aimlessly. He couldn’t focus; he wasn’t even sure where he was anymore. He had vague memories of the Transponder Station, his trap sprung, and pain. Nothing, but pain. And burning. And fear. Pure, unadulterated fear. His arms grew cold and numb, his legs had long since lost sensation. His vision blurred from tears and an ever encroaching darkness. Finally, his eyes focused on something in front of him.
“Father…” he said weakly. “Father I failed…”
“We learn through failure,” a voice responded.
“I fear… I will not live long enough… to learn… from this failure…”
The dark figure knelt next to him and sighed quietly. “In death, you have succeeded. I am proud of you.”
“Proud… of me?”
“Yes. Rest now.”
“Yes… rest…” he murmured quietly.
But Malavai never heard him say goodbye and Malavai never knew his vision was not that of his father, but that of the Sith Lord Syla. And Malavai never heard her heaving sobs or saw Lieutenant Pierce gather his body and send him off for a proper burial. And Malavai disappeared from memory, to be mourned only by Syla until nothing remained of her.
While Quinn fails at killing Syla, he does succeed in killing a part of her.
I'll probably die if you group with me, but I'll go out with both lightsabers drawn stabbing someone in the face. Probably you, but it's cool. Forever Shenanigans!!
