    NOVEMBER 109

    "Get up," Jaesa said shortly, circling around Rey where she had been knocked down onto the ground. Their saberstaffs hummed in unison, the glows of gold and purple mixing together in the twilit yard. Jaesa spun her own lightsaber lazily in her hand, continuing to circle as she waited for Rey to get back to her feet. "Your Mistress wants you to learn this, and you know you don't want to piss her off." No more than she wanted to piss off her Master.

    They had been put together to train; or rather, they had been put together for Jaesa to train Rey in the ways of the dark side. She didn't mind; it was nice to see Rey in the same kind of circumstances as herself. She wasn't alone any more. But although she didn't mind and did it because she had been ordered to, Jaesa was an impatient, brutal teacher. There were other things she could be doing rather than training Rey, like spending time with her esteemed Master. Every moment here was a moment away from him, and she hated being away from him.

    "Come on, like I showed you," she said, holding her saberstaff at the ready once Rey was back to her feet. "Channel those emotions."

    Rey tried to force air back into her lungs as quickly as possible as she lay on the floor, looking up at Jaesa. She was still holding her saberstaff and was cursing herself internally for falling for such a stupid move. She swore under her breath but straightened up as she looked on at the other woman. Sometimes she felt these moments of weakness; she had worked hard these past months to try to get rid of them, to be as strong as she could. That was the only way she could be of value, that was what she wanted.

    A flash caught her eyes as she considered Jaesa's words; she had no desire to annoy her mistress, it was the opposite of what she wanted. Rey rolled her staff in her wrists, working on building up her emotions to go after Jaesa again.

    With a flash of anger, pushing through the raw emotion she hit out with her saberstaff, towards her, going as quickly and swiftly as she had been taught. This was how she fought now, with a raw anger and a desire to win and be better above all else.

    Jaesa's fingers flexed impatiently around the hilt of her saberstaff as she waited for Rey to get back to her feet. Her breath came out in a huff; they'd been practising this for a while, but Rey was yet to employ Force Lightning against her like her Mistress wanted her to learn. Her friend was strong, moreso now that she had finally given in to the lure and the thrill of the dark side, but there were some ways in which she seemed to struggle.

    Well, Jaesa was going to make Rey use lightning, whatever it took.

    She spun her saberstaff, one golden blade blocking purple, the other whirling to sweep and drive Rey's weapon away. When it came to lightsaber combat, Jaesa had the inherent advantage of finding it easy to block Rey's attacks after years of mastering the defensive Soresu stance, another thing that she had been trying to teach Rey. She was nowhere near as good at offensive lightsaber combat, but that had never caused a problem for her before. Besides, they weren't here for lightsaber combat anyway. Not truly. It was just something to try and drive Rey to use what Jaesa was trying to teach her.

    Again, however, there was no flicker or spark to be seen, and Jaesa growled through her teeth. "If you don't learn this, it's going to be both of us in hot water," she said. "Channel your emotions into power, as I keep telling you. Like this."

    As she spoke, she did exactly what she had told Rey to do, feeling that power coursing down her arm, discharging out of her hands as a burst of blue-purple lightning that arced across the space between the two women.

    There was anger about the way Rey moved which made it feel foreign to the way she had once used the Force. Of course she had been trying to master this; she wanted to because it was the only thing which was going to please her mistress. It would be how she would become powerful and it would be how she would be useful and valued. Rey stared on at Jaesa, feeling a sense of jealousy at how easy it came to the woman in front of her in comparison with her own efforts.

    Her lack of skill was becoming annoying and she felt pathetic. When she saw the spark come to Jaesa again she dug deep inside her, channelling that jealousy and anger, wanting to show what she could do. She screamed into her gesture and put her hand forwards, trying to bend the Force to her will in the way that she wished.

    It was then, after they had been at this for hours, after the times where Rey herself had been subjected to Force lightening she was able to bring it to her fingertips for a few moments, sparking off to the side of Jaesa before disappearing. It wasn't enough though, she knew it wasn't and while she could take the smug victory here and now, she knew it was not enough completely. She would have to be better, for her mistress. "It is a start." She conceded after a moment, gritting her teeth.
