    A small silhouetted object could be seen gradually growing in size as it gracefully descended towards the small secluded plateau, the body of the object glowing a brilliant white as the morning sun light reflected off of the fuselage of small personal fighter craft as it passed through the layer of clouds. Over a short period of time the small ship gradually drew closer, circling around until it reached the small patch of land that it had landed on previously.

    The young pilot's emerald hued gaze, narrowing as she looked out of the cockpit into the distance, towards a rocky out cropping. "Ditto, I may be gone for a while, so once we've landed I'll need you to wipe the nav data from the ship and then power down" The pilot spoke out, as she toggled a few switches on the console, and adjusted the throttle to power down her engines slightly. A series of chirps rang back in response over the intercom from the droid held within the holding socket, causing the pilot of nod slightly in agreement. "its pointless me giving you the reason why Ditto, cos I''ll have to wipe your core again" the pilot responded as she maneuvered the ship into it's final landing approach. "Yes I know there are no secrets between us, but this place needs to be protected" she continued right after a series of protests from the droid.

    After a gentle and well-practiced landing, the engines of the fighter soon whined as the life was extinguished from the two hyper drive engine nacelles that provided the means of achieving flight. As the engines settled down into a dormant state, the transparisteel canopy slowly opened, raising up away from the rest of the craft's fuselage. From which the slight framed figure emerged, and stepped onto the hull of the ship. Her hands moving up towards her helmet, and swiftly unclasped the fasteners before slowly removing the helmet. Revealing a mass of ashen and white hued hair, that no sooner had the helmet been stowed within the cockpit, the young female's fingers ran through the locks of hair acting as a makeshift brush to tidy it up into a pony tail.

    Carefully the young figure removed her flight suit, leaving her clad in a set of basic robes. Folding the flight suit up, the young Jedi lent over back towards the cockpit and deposited the flightsuit on her chair before summoning her lightsabers to her hands. Making short work of clipping her lightsabers in place, Eisa reached her hand up towards her mouth to stifle a yawn before stretching her limbs out. "Right Ditto power down, will be back before you know it" she spoke out whilst stepping towards the edge of the fighter's dorsal hull, before coming to a stop after her droid chirped back. "Yes Ditto, I'll be careful, I'm just going to commune with the Force" Eisa responded with a light sigh as she reached out to pat her droid's exposed casing, eliciting a deflated sounding tone.

    Like she had done before, so many months ago, the Jedi Master traversed her way across the desert planes, headed towards the rocky out cropping where she had encountered the towering Force Entity known as the Bendu. A being that had possessed a greater knowledge and understanding of what it meant to wield the Force as well as the elements that made up the infinite energy that flowed throughout the Galaxy. On the first encounter with the Bendu she had completed two of the tasks that it had set out for her, bringing her closer to achieving inner peace. She had let go of the fears and guilt that had weighed heavy on her mind, she had learned to embrace the darker side of her, ending the conflict between her personality and the expectations of a Jedi, allowing Eisa to be true to herself.

    But even though through the Entity's guidance and teachings, the Ashen haired female had finally became much more at ease within herself, having gained a better perspective from which to critically look within herself. There was still an outstanding matter, the Bendu had said for her to return another day to face her final trial. Something that she was now currently making her way to rocky outcropping where she first encountered the Bendu, after being urgently recalled back to the order to assist with Master Luy in his efforts to rid Ilum of Abominations, followed by leading one of the search parties on Devaron following the sudden disappearance of Grand Master Beraux.

    As the Late afternoon sun continued to beat down upon the desert world, Eisa arrived at the rocky plateau, quietly making her way down towards the small boulder that the entity had first appeared in front of. Sitting crossed legged, Eisa took a passing glance over the surroundings before closing her eyes. Listening to the relative stillness of the Force as it flowed around her, the Jedi's mind started to fall quiet and free of thought, savoring the tranquility of the Force that flowed throughout the relatively undisturbed planet.

    She could sense and feel the subtle ripples of the native creatures moving about in their nests, the low ambient electrical current that ran through her powered down ship and droid, even the rolling grains of sand as they shifted under the wind. A light smile curling on her lips, as she thought back to the first encounter with the Bendu, the imbalance that she had carried had disturbed everything that she was now currently able to feel around her. It all was a start contrast to what she could sense back then, only the disturbance and inner turmoil that radiated out from within her, now at least she was able to reach out and feel beyond her own presence.

    The Bendu awaited the woman's return.

    Eisa Swan had not come to the Bendu as the best possible student but she had grown rather well over the course of their interactions. It was not only due to the Bendu, of course, as Eisa had put in the work and the effort to be someone different. She had pushed to accept herself and what she was being taught.

    These were good traits for a Jedi to have.

    But in these volatile days?

    A Jedi needs to be more than simply in balance with themselves and the Force. The Bendu rises from the ground at it always does, before Eisa, as storm clouds gather.

    "Eisa Swan."

    It lets the greeting hang for a moment before continuing.

    "Are you prepared?"

    Slowly the ashen haired Jedi, opened her eyes, as the towering visage of the Bendu emerged out of the ground and into view. Eisa's emerald hued gaze passed over the rocky like monolithic features of the Bendu, and upwards towards the swirling mass of grey clouds that had was blocking out the sky above. Rising up from her seated position, the Jedi master unfastened her tunic before removing her upper layer, leaving her clad in a a simple vest top.

    As she let the discarded tunic fall to the side, Eisa observed the fabric as it rippled in the currents of air that was sweeping through it, granting final confirming that the storm clouds were no illusion. Returning her gaze back up to the Bendu, a light firendly smile curling on her lips. "Bendu" the Jedi spoke out as she nodded in greeting to the Force Entity. "I am ready" Eisa added in response, before taking a deep breath and closing her eyes, allowing the Force to continue to freely flow throughout her body.

    Her minds eye remained focused on the ebbing flow and currents of the Force, the violent vortices swirling up above amidst the storm clouds, the sweeping winds that howled through the rocky outcrop. The mass of Force energy that had stood infront of her, the Bendu. Even though she had felt the Entitys sheer raw strength in its connection to the Force during the first
    Instance that they had met, seeing it through her minds eye and the Force only made it the more grounding.

    Whatever the Bendu had in store for her, as part of her final Trial. Eisa had the suspicion that it would test her to the very limits, highly doubting that after the pain, disorientation and revelations she had experienced over the previous two trails, the third wound be a simple game of Sabbac.

    She believed she was ready.

    "You are mistaken."

    Eisa may believe that she was ready but it doubted that very much. Because the young Jedi was expecting to be receiving a lesson as she had done before. She was not expecting what came next. Instead of using the Force, The Bendu used it's right arm to swat at the young Jedi, aiming to send her flying backwards even if it missed through the sheer wind produced by the blow.

    It was time.

    Without giving Eisa a chance to recover her equilibrium, the Bendu would attack immediately with two attacks through the Force; a mental attack to cause Eisa's senses to become muddled and a Force Pull on a chunk of stone behind Eisa, aiming to slam it into her back hard.

    The ashen haired Jedi's brow furrowed as she watched the swirling mass of Force energy infront of her begin to move, the shimmering form of the Entity's right arm rearing back momentarily before sweeping down towards her. The Jedi's eyes shot open to visually confirm what she had seen through the Force, indeed the Entity was sweeping in to attack her, it was clear that this trial was not going to be remotely like the previous ones. With a sudden burst of motion the slight framed Jedi sprang from her position, using her honed speed and agility to evade the physical strike of the Bendu's colossal hand, before feeling the rush of the turbulent air from the wake of the physical attack driving her against her footing, forcing her to drop down low and dig her feet into the dusty grit like ground to brace herself.

    Then as soon as the wind settled down, her mind became awash with a haze, her vision becoming blurry and her mind light headed, if she would have to equate it to a familiar sensation, it would have been akin to being blind drunk. Leaving her with little option, the Jedi master resorted to throwing her mind into the Force, knowing that despite her wavering senses, she would see the truth through the Force. As she did so the radiating aura around the Jedi Master became hardened, the years of fighting for the Rebellion had tempered and honed her focus.

    But the disorientation wasn't the only thing that the Force Entity had in mind, it had used the Force to propel one of the boulders towards the ashen haired Jedi, narrowing her eyes as she focused her attention on the mass of Force energy that was approaching her from behind. With a sudden crack of energy rippling out from the soles of her feet Eisa sprang away from her crouched position, moving with an unnatural speed, the Force enchancing her movements beyond her own physical abilities. Swiftly putting distance between her and the cast projectile.

    Once enough space had been gained, the Ashen haired master threw her hand outwards towards the boulder, projecting a powerful blast of telekinetic energy towards the propelled rock, looking to shatter it into countless pieces. Her second hand closing into a ball as she manipulated the Force around it to cast the broken shards downwards and embed them into the ground. But even with her attempts to try and neutralise the imminent threat, Eisa wasn't going to let her guard down, there was no telling or predicting what the Bendu had in store for her, and she figured that this was only just going to be the beginning.

    Oh yes, it was all coming together.

    While Eisa was focusing on evading the rock, shattering the rock, protecting her mind and sending the shards of the broken rock into the ground, the Bendu was building on it's own attack. Rather than continuing as it had however, the Bendu decided that it was time that Eisa was reminded that it was not some Jedi Master.

    The Bendu was the one in the middle.

    To others, combining the Light and the Dark was literally impossible. For the Bendu it was as simple as existing for the Bendu itself was the perfect combination of Darkness and Light.

    From the ground beneath and around Eisa, roots and vines sprouted up to ensnare her legs while she was distracted by her efforts to diffuse it's earlier attack. At the same time, slightly above Eisa's head, space warped and twisted as it conjured a Sith lightning storm that would cause lightning to strike down at the Jedi while also being an obstacle to keep her penned down on the ground.

    It seemed that no sooner had one threat been contended with, another would swiftly follow, the trial the Bendu was presenting felt like it was almost an all out assault. The ferocity and speed in which the Force was manipulated around her, felt as if, she didn't know better that there were multiple people attacking her at once. The sudden snaring by the erupting roots and vines springing up from the seemingly barren ground, tangling their way around her ankles and lower shin, before she could feel her hair lift at the sudden surge of static electricity surround her, preceeding a storm of Force lightning.

    Gritting her teeth, Eisa weathered through the convulsing pain that coarsed through her extremities, before surrounding herself with a barrier of Force energy to absorb and bare the brunt of the attack. Even though it didn't stop the pain, it made it manageable to cope with. "He's hurting us Baby girl" a familiar feminine voice whispered into the back of the Jedis mind, her eyes to narrow slightly. Her hardened expression softening as she felt the soft ethereal caress run along the nape of her neck, easing her mind away from the pain and calming her. "Remember what I said Bae, All the pain and all the suffering and all the anger. Let me protect you from it" the disembodied voice continued, softly whispering into the back of Eisas ear. "Of course I do" Eisa audibly spoke out, as her features returned back into a look of Focus.

    With a sudden spark and hiss, the bright cyan hued blade of her lightsaber erupted into life, before it was raised into the path of the lightning creating a lightning rod, as her free hand moved to the side, the focused force Energies absorbing the overflow of the lighting, using Tutaminis to take the harmful Energies not to flow within her, but concentrating the Force lightning within the palm of her hand. Once she felt she couldnt absorb any more, the Ashen haired Master cast forth a crackling emerald stream of electricity towards the entity. The short burst of light sided lightning directed at the Bendu, for what harm it would do there was no telling how the being would be affected.

    But there had been a window opened, as no sooner had the Kinetite been released, Eisa with a series of honed and skilled strikes cut herself free from the binding plant life before springing forwards, using her nible form to its natural strength in agility to clear herself from and evade the plant life that would attempt to ensnare her again. As she swiftly ran off to the side of the Bendu, looking to keep moving so she could gain momentum to react to what ever else the Bendu had up its metaphorical sleeves.
