    Tsara already had hers ignited, but realized that the woman at the opening of the ship was rattled, and afraid; she radiated an almost animal fright. Tsara stepped out from her position slightly behind Kyi, and waved the Lightsaber with the best forced smile she could manage under the frigid conditions. She didn't want an altercation. She just wanted to get back into the temple and get warm again.

    "Here's mine. Training saber; I can barely cut and toast a loaf with it." she said evenly, a slight tremble to her voice caused by the icy winds blasting her.

    And Tsara continued to wave it.

    "Blue, see? Like my lips are getting out here..."

    Her eyes narrowed on the scared woman.

    "Please don't make us stay out here any longer!"

    The girl must have been a Padawan, she certainly looked young enough and dressed like one, she had asked for proof of trust that they weren't Sith. Almost immediately Kyi heard the snap-hiss of Tsar's training saber - he turned his head and his eyes followed her as she stepped out from behind him and then moved to stand in front of him. She waved her training saber frantically, showing that she wasn't a threat, the Jedi opted to do the same as he ignited his own blue lightsaber and held it out as it hummed against the whistling of the blizzard. "We're not here to harm you." he said calmly before turning his head to the shivering Twi'lek next to him "Just come on, there's a Jedi temple a few metres away from us." Kyi said, informing the frightened Padawan motioning her to exit her ship with one hand and pointing in the direction of the frozen Jedi temple with the other.

    As he waited for the Padawan's response, the cogs in Kyi's head began to shift once more. It was definitley not coincidence that all three of them had shown up and roughly in the same area - the freckled Jedi had initially thought the Force had brought him and Tsara together so that she could learn about the Force... but with the recent emergence of this Padawan, he wasn't sure what the Force wanted now. All he knew was, that he'd have to wait and find out - the answers should, hopefully, reveal themselves soon.

    Racaiya gave one last glare at the two, and their sabers. She figured they were worthy of trust, for now at least. What bothered Racaiya more was the fact that she wasn't excited to meet other Jedi. It had been two years since the attack on the Jedi order in Corellia, the event still haunted her occasionally. Giving one last glare at the two, Racaiya finally turned around and threw all the objects back into the ship. It didn't matter that she was roughing it up, the ship was trashed anyways. Racaiya turned back around looked towards the man, "Is the temple you mentioned the one that contains Kyber crystals?" she asked. Although she is more proficient with her force abilities, a simple training saber wasn't going to be of much use to Racaiya anymore.

    Racaiya stepped off the ramp onto the snow, the texture was much weirder than she could have imagined. It also seemed like the snow-storm was getting worse, so Racaiya began walking forward; The direction in which she assumed the other two came from.
    "I don't know much about snow-storms, but if they are the same as normal storms then we should get to that temple."

    "Agreed!"

    Tsara replied rather quickly, eagerness evident in her shaky voice. The cold was something she could never abide well to begin with. Add in the fact that she never wore much to begin with, and even now wore only a tight coverall, Tsara was her own worst enemy on this world.

    The Call started up again.

    Like it knew she left the temple.

    The harshness, the loudness of the Force on full blast again. Tsara shook for a different reason, this time. She desperately needed to understand why she'd come to this cold, forlorn enclave. She needed to understand why the consummate all of the Galaxy's voice was shouting at her.

    "Yes! Back in is warm!..." she added, turning her head towards the incessant beckon from withing the mountainous structure.

    And she all but whispered.

    "...back in is quiet..."

    Kyi opened his mouth to respond to the Padawan's question, however Tsara responded first, eager to get back to being warm - he didn't blame her, with how she was dressed, he was still surprised at hoe she hadn't received any form of frostbite yet. After Tsara finished with what she had to say, Kyi turned his attention from her back to the young Padawan - "Yes, deep inside the temple and into the caves is where the Kyber crystals are located." he said in response to her initial question. Kyi's eyes lowered to the girl's hips as he spotted what looked like a training saber - the freckled Knight's mind began to theorise again, was this what the Force had drawn him to Ilum for? A guide? A mentor?

    Both of these girls were young and hadn't had the same experience he had regarding the Force, maybe he was in fact here to expand their knowledge - bringing him back to his early theory, as well as help the Padawan build a true lightsaber. Kyi's thumb and index finger hooked to his chin as he delved deeper into thought, the young Knight snickered to himself, falling back on the memory of himself as a headstrong and naive Padawan learner.

    Returning to the moment at hand, his gaze switched between the two young girls
    "Alright, let's head back to the temple. Tsara, I can explain to you more about the Force and...?" he paused, unsure of the Padawan's name before continuing "I'll help you find a Kyber crystal." he smiled while pointing at her.

    "Name's Kyi Wavestrider by the way. I'm a Jedi Knight." he said to the Padawan, hoping to garner some trust, before turning back and making his way to the frozen over Jedi temple.

    "Padawan Racaiya Wylddun." She said in response to Kyi. Despite being in a snow-storm, her voice was calm and soothing; a consequence of being monotone in most situations.

    Although she didn't like working with others, Racaiya figured the two could prove useful. It was apparent that Kyi had been in the temple before since he had his own saber, but the other seemed like a complete rookie even to Racaiya's own standards.
    "No biggie, just get my saber, get a ride to another planet, and then continue my journey," she thought to herself.

    Finally making it to the temple, Racaiya was in awe at the size of it. She wondered what caused the Jedi to build such a temple in a hazardous environment like this, or maybe the planet wasn't always this bad. However, there was no visible entrance to the temple. Racaiya turned around, facing Kyi
    "I'm assuming you know another way into the temple, or is this a puzzle of some sort." Her voice had a hint of impatience within it, but it was rather friendly for the most part.

    Tsara was going to let Kyi explain the climb, meanwhile, she drew the training saber close to her person, enjoying the warmth it brought. She found herself considering that warmth, the blue light, the object, mechanically, itself. Up until that very moment, she'd only ever perceived the Lightsaber as a weapon. But it was more than that. It was a tool...and something of a symbol, she realized. Making it the focal point of her consideration, she dwelt only upon it. Wylddun and Kyi becoming small presences, minute even, in the background.

    The Call seemed louder than ever, but less like an inarticulate scream. She purged the clutter of ambient thoughts by acknowledging only the Saber and the Call, growing still on the outside, and quiet within.

    For once, she had found peace. For once she could hear. A fleeting sense of why they were all there hinted, but...

    ...but only for a moment.


    A howling blast of frigid wind overcame the moment's clarity, and Tsara shivered back to the miserable present. The elusive revelation had slipped away. Yet...yet still, she had grasped something. A sense that the Force may not be wrestling with her, at least not always. Perhaps, Tsara considered, she was simply bad at hearing it, and it [The Force] had decided to 'speak' louder.

    She regarded Kyi and Wylddun, hoping they would begin the trek back to the temple interior.

    Whatever the Force was trying to tell them could only be discovered in there.
