(IC) Corusant: Jedi Temple Entrance
As she looked around, she thought about all she had done, her early schooling, her lessons with her father, the University, her acting lessons, the Holo Series, her reporting, her decision to go to space...

And she looked at the little Jedi Master. "Yes, I do. And... I wish to do more. I did some, and perhaps, just perhaps... I came here for more than answers. So when I have seen, could I perhaps... stay?" A lump rose in her throat. "Am I good enough... to learn?"

The jedi looks up at the woman."Become a Jedi means you have to leave the past. You must focus often and cannot let your past guide you. Being a Jedi is your life. Passion cannot exist. As well as other emotions. You need time. It is not a easy thing."

She thought for several moments.  She would never lie to him, so she chose her answer carefully.

"I... I am a very emotional girl. Passion is part of me. As an actress, I have to have that."

She bit her lip.  "But, I want to. I want to learn. This... this is new. I have been a Senator's daughter, a loyalist and an actress and reporter.  Could... could I do this?"

She felt tears again, which she knew was wrong. But she had to ask. "May I?"

"It becomes your life. All in the past, all connections to it are gone. Being a Jedi and protecting the innocent, guiding them...that's your life. You will face many evil, some from within yourself as the darkness becomes stronger. You are not ready. Future, perhaps." The creature goes over to the clone trooper. After a few words, her gear is handed to him and he gives it back to her."Do not use the holo while within the Temple"

She sighed, then nodded. "Future, then. I understand. More than I did before I came."

She gathered her things. "I will use none of my things here. Truly, I do not know what I would say. This has been... amazing."

With everything in place, she picked up her bag. "Thank you, Jedi. May I go see more?"

The small beast pulls out a small item. He holds it in his hand, and reveals it to be a lightsaber-probably unknown to the reporter."Do you know what this is? What it is used for?" He keeps moving towards the main hall, glancing at the woman.

She looked at it with obvious curiosity. "No, I've never seen anything like it." She glanced around, then back at the object in his hand. "Is it a sensing device? Or perhaps a tool?"

Stopping, he turns towards the young woman."This is a lightsaber. Every Jedi makes one but it is given to their padawans before it is possible."

Her eyes widened. "Oh, I heard stories of such. It is a sword, made of laser power. And ancient weapon." She looked at it with more interest. "And so I suppose a 'padawan' is a student? And they will make one as they grow into power, I suppose. But you give them one like this until they make their own." She smiled, happy to have learned something again that was totally new.

"So you will give this to one of your padawans? And then I would assume as they learn, they learn to use it. To keep peace, and the security of the Republic? How fascinating!"

It made her want to see one used. How amazing that must be!

The creature holds it out to the woman."Take it." He watches her for a moment."I feel you will need it. But I cannot take you as a padawan. Not yet. I had a padawan once...."

She hesitates, staring at it, then gingerly took it, keeping the business end away from both of them. "For... for me?" she said, her voice almost squeeking. "I... I don't know how to use it, but... Thank you. I will guard it and keep it always..."

His final words sank in. "You did have another? I mean, another Padawan?" She was still digesting the 'not yet' part of his statement.

"Do not give it to anyone else. And yes I did." The creature looks around the decent sized room."This is the main hall. It branches off in several different locations."

"I will treasure it. Always."

She slipped it into a loop on her belt, then looked around. "How many are here? I mean, studying. Must be quite a few to be so huge."

She suddenly realized something else he had said. "What do you meean, you think I will need it?"

The man looks up at her."I just believe you will. There are other abilities you may learn. Sometimes I get brief hints of the future. The present. Even the past though the Force.  As for the Jedi, many were lost during the Clone Wars as Yoda had mentioned. He is in charge of the Jedi. There are very few Masters left, some Knights as myself. Padawans are selected. This place once held many Jedi. But now it hold but a few."

She managed to shift her brain back over to the reporter mode. "So there were many. And now just one master, this one called 'Yoda.' But..." Now she lost it. "So the Force lets you sense the future, just as you sensed me. And just as you showed me how to see the rock. The Force is a true part of all around us, isn't it? And I can see a little part of it. But you can see more. And I assume a Master sees more than that."

She looked around. "But there are few now. But... don't you have the power to stop them?"

"No we have a few Masters. I can sense as its a Jedi abilities. Some can, some cannot. Everything is part of the Force but not all can touch it. A rock is part of the Force. The columms here? A part of the Force. Everything. And to end the fighting, no." The creature stares at the woman.

She nodded, her hand unconsciously going to touch the lightsaber, making sure it was still there. "That makes sense. It's what I feel, when I sense it. It is all around, in everything. And when you say it does not end fighting, it is because it is just there. It is people who end fighting, Force or not. It is something we do, it is not just the  power that is out there that would do it."

She thought a moment. "And some could do bad things with it too, couldn't they?" she asked, the thought making her look troubled.

"Yes. The Jedi work against them. Some want to use the Force to make themselves more powerful. This can be good or bad. Some use the Darkside. Let it envolope them. Some can be saved, others cannot." The creature nods his head.

She shook her head. "I could not imagine using such power for evil. It is a weighty thing, I suspect, to have a great sense for the Force. To use it for evil is just... wrong."

She glanced down at the lightsaber again. "I just couldn't." she whispered.

"Even I had dipped into the Darkside. Out of fear and anger. But I overcame it and had to do it alone. I do not wish for anyone to tread down that path." Val'Si looks at the woman.

She looked back at him solemnly. "I will vow to do my best not to go down that path either. My parents raised me right. You've trusted me with something important. I... I won't let you down."

His head tilts up and his feathers stick up as well, the creature rubs his beak."I trust I picked well. Do not go down the Darkside." He nods his head."I do not know you well but do not worry about letting myself down. Trust yourself."

She smiled, delighted. "I shall, Val'Si. Now..." She looked around. Perhaps you can show me more? Maybe meet someone? Or even... Tell me what sort of paths those who sense the force can take?"

She couldn't tell him, but this was so much more than she had ever imagined. And even if she couldn't tell the world what she had learned, she could at least be happy to have found so much to contemplate and take in.

"Many places to go but few are allowed to visitors. I can take you to the medical area then perhaps the library where I spend much time." Val'Si pauses for a moment.

"I would love to see both. I realize I am but a visitor, but I am learning so much. Please, let's go see."

She looked around as they started walking again. "So is the medical area just for the padawans and Jedi? Or do you also treat the troops and such? And are the doctors also Force sensitive?"
