The Legend of Harash Soru 16 : Betrayal . . Stewjon, roughly one week after the events in The Legend of Harash Soru 15.
Harash Soru sat in his study staring intently at the flashing button before him.
Harash Soru: "Its him."
Nayam Burl looked up at her husband and smiled.
Nayam Burl: "He's made his choice Hara, whether he knows it or not there is nothing more you can do now."
Harash Soru: "What if he says no."
Nayam Burl: "Then nothing changes. We go on until we finally kill him. But we cannot make this choice for him."
Harash Soru: "You're right. There is always hope. We planted the seeds, now we just have to see if they have grown."
Hara reached over and hit the accept button on the holopad.
Harash Soru: "Darth Nihilus."
Korriban, the study of Darth Nihilus.
Darth Nihilus: "Master Soru. I... I am not sure why I made this call."
Harash Soru: "You must be Nihilus. Somewhere inside you know why you chose to call me, and I think you do know."
Nihilus stood and walked around his desk.
Darth Nihilus: "You are right. Of course I know why I called you. I cannot get that vision out of my mind. To be free of the hunger, of the Dark. To be free of my past. I want that."
Hara sighed, feeling a wave of relief wash over him.
Harash Soru: "I am truly glad to hear that Nihilus. I cannot promise you a cure straight away. But I can promise you acceptance. And if we work together, there is nothing we cannot achieve."
Darth Nihilus: "I hope you are right Hara. I will leave as soon as possible. For now, may the..."
Nihilus' voice trailed off to a grunt as a red blade burst out of his stomach.
Hara jumped to his feet, knocking his chair over in his haste.
Harash Soru: "No!!!"
Nihilus' body fell away to reveal the two forms of Darth Levid and Darth Sion.
Darth Levid: "You see now Sion? Nihilus was planning on betraying us for this filth!"
Harash Soru: "You murderer Levid!"
Darth Levid: "That is what Sith do Soru! We betray each other, its in our blood."
Darth Levid turned and walked out of Nihilus' study. Before he left he stopped and glanced back at Sion.
Darth Levid: "I will now assume Nihilus' role. His power is now my power. And believe me Sion, when I say I will not make the deaths of traitors as easy as Nihilus'."
Hara watched as Levid stalked out of the room, for a momnt he was silent before he spoke.
Harash Soru: "That was aimed at you Sion. He knows you have had doubts also."
Darth Sion: "I know Soru, I am not blind nor deaf."
Harash Soru: "He will betray you Sion. Surely you know that?"
Sion stared at Hara for a long time.
Darth Sion: "I know."
Sion turned and walked out of the study.
Darth Sion: "All I have to do is betray him first."
A note from the author.
To all of the fans of this series, its now my turn to make an appeal to you. This comic has been going for ages now and I'm loving every second of it. I love to hear your thoughts and comments, to know that I have captured so many minds and won you over with my characters always inspires me to keep going, to think of more turns in the story.
It occurred to me the other day that I have no real idea of how many people follow the series.
So if you do follow the series then please could you leave a comment on this creation, it doesn't have to be much. Just saying "cool" or something is enough. Just to know how many of you there are.
Thanks to all of you and remember if you want to be in the comic then all you have to do is ask :)
May the Force be with you all,
