((ooc: The following is a short little fic with Kalneth and my characters Setie and Sharlina. It takes place during their short flight in a shuttle between the Infinity and the Fate Shatter. To recap, Sharlina has been told to protect Setie (her blood sister) at all costs, but is a bit shocked currently since Setie has told her she intends to eventually marry Marik Fatir aka Zelkin Infinium. Zelkin then stated his intentions to destroy the Force in front of Sharlina before Setie could further explain the situation. Both were ordered to the Fate Shatter by Zelkin and Setie is grabbing this alone time with her sister to quickly explain a few things.

Please hold all comments you wish to state till the end of the fic which will be when Setie and Sharlina are stepping onto the Fate Shatter. Thank you! ))

Setie sighed and rubbed her hands over her face as the shuttle cleared the Infinity's hanger. She was tired already and it bothered her to no end.

Tired because she hated acting, didn't think herself good at it, but now it was the only way she could manage. She had to keep her head down for now, not just for her sake but for everyone she cared about.

The thought had her setting the shuttle on autopilot as she got up to go check on her sister. Sharlina had not moved a muscle since Setie had pulled her into the shuttle and it was starting to wear on the younger of the two.

"Alright so which question do you want me answer first? If I've gone insane or How the heck did this all happen?"

When Sharlina said nothing Setie frowned and snapped her fingers under her sister's nose. It was quick enough that one might have thought it was a punch being thrown but it was really harmless.

Sharlina saw the move, but did nothing. Nothing at all. Inside, her heart was breaking. She liked Setsuna. She had trusted her, now... She found out the girl she had found out was her sister just a short time before wanted to marry(!) a lunatic who wanted to destroy the Force. She didn't even blink when Setie snapped her fingers in front of her. She did focus her eyes on Setsuna's face however.

"The mistress need explain nothing." Her voice was perfectly respectful. Also empty. No emotion at all. It would have done any brainwashed conscript Sith trooper proud. On a Bladeborn it was just... wrong... She looked at the clock.

"We will arrive on schedule."

Setie frowned at the cold tone. She had to put up with it from Marik or there would be problems but she sure as heck was not going to tolerate it from Sharlina.

Because she knew Sharlina was horribly stubborn, and it certainly would give her an outlet for frustration. Plus the tactic had worked before. Setie whipped out her saber hilt and holding it by the emitter wacked Sharlina on the head with it.

"Pay attention. I need you to listen to what I'm saying here Sharlina, or should I figure out how to find your Master Trugoy and tell him your being dead weight with your moodiness? Yes Zelkin is a nut job that wants to kill the Force. You were there though right before we left. Compare that Zelkin with this one real quick for me please? He said it himself he's split in half and they are butting heads."

Surely Sharlina could connect the dots here. She wasn't just some mindless, blood crazed, butcher like a lot of people like to paint her.

Sharlina looked at Setie. if the impact on her head fazed her at all, it was unapparent. Her voice was still unemotional.

"My duty is to protect you and I will." She stared at Setie. "Nothing else matters."

No matter how hard she tried, she could not summon the energy to act any other way. Empty, that was what she was. Empty.

That hurt was to much for her. After having to deal with Marik, Setie was not about to deal with it from Sharlina. She was already on edge from everything else on her shoulders and she did not need this!

Her hand slapped across Sharlina's face as Setie sneered. She looked so much like Kaosis right then that it would have frightened the younger girl to no end.

"Dammit I said listen to me Sharlina!" Setie yelled in frustration. "I do not need this right now with Marik, Jan, and all this stupidity! I need help and dammit your going to help me!"

For a moment, Sharlina did not see Setie, she saw the single most hated figure in her life. Their mother. As the figure reached back for another slap, Sharlina reached out and grabbed the arm and took the still unclear form to the deck, hard. But when her eyes cleared it wasn't Kaosis she held with a fist cocked back for a deathblow... Sharlina released her sister and recoiled in horror.

"no... No...!" Sharlina shook her head, but the image of her sister lying on the floor didn't vanish. "Setsuna... I'm sorry... please..."

She gathered her sister into her arms and for the first time since she had found her sister, Sharlina cried.

"Setie... I didn't mean it, I... I thought you were her... You... I thought you were Kaosis... Please..." She bowed her head over her sister and cried harder. "I am sorry, sister... Please..."

"I'm gonna be feeling that for a week." Setie groaned to herself. "Must make sure never to slap Sharlina in the future."

Then her sister was hugging her and crying. This alarmed Setie since the Bladeborn was usually cold as stone or at least lukewarm.

"It's ok Sharlina. I shouldn't have slapped you. You just were...shut off and we don't have a lot of time. I kind of panicked."

Setie sighed then in worry. "Sharlina I need you to trust me on everything please? Do you remember how Marik was before we left the outpost? Not the fight with the Mandos but when I was fixing him up and such. Before I had you get on the ship with Lucas and the troops?"

Before she had ambushed Marik and hijacked his ship. Maker she missed her Marik, she wanted to hold onto him and feel like the universe was right again. For now though she had to deal with Zelkin and his egotistical craziness.

"I'm going to save you Marik...I promised." She thought, closing a hand over her half of the pendant Marik and her shared.

Sharlina hugged her sister again, then helped her sit up.

"Please don't slap me again. She... She did that the last time I saw her. I am sorry... I..." She thought back to what little she had seen of Marik on Korriban, then she shook her head. It wasn't the same man. The mannerisms, the voice, everything was different. She slumped.

"Setsuna, Setie... if he has two minds in the same body... How..." She shook her head. She had seen some very strange things as a Bladeborn, but this... She shook her head again.

"What can we do? And what help of mine do you need? You have but to ask little sister."

Setie nodded then at Sharlina's request. "I'll try to remember that and I'm sorry too. I just needed your attention, not your cold duty mind."

At the question of what to do Setie twisted her fingers together nervously. "I...I'm not entirely sure. I...I learned something on Dantooine from a force ghost named Torim Fatir. He's Marik's father see, and he taught me Makashi. Anyways I'm not exactly going to be able to defend myself while doing it. Zelkin will be busy at the time but it could end really badly if someone thinking I'm the enemy comes out of nowhere. I would prefer you not kill them though since they really won't know what I'm doing."

Sharlina sighed.

"If you wish me to disable rather than kill I can, but... If it comes to a choice between you and someone else, I WILL choose you, Setie. Even if it wasn't my duty, I would choose you. If you wish, I will try not to kill, but... It may come to that." Sharlina hugged her sister again. Then looked at her oddly.

"Makashi... hmmm, you must show me what you learned from this ghost. Chari, the Twilek you met, does Makashi almost exclusively, and she is good. It can be beautiful."

Chari had met them on the Fate Shatter. Sharlina had no idea at all how the Lethan Twi'lek Masterblade of the Bladeborn had gotten there. Matter of fact, she wasn't sure how her old master, Trugoy, had gotten there. Wasn't important now.
