Isaiah the Gray, Part 14

Part 13 (rest at the bottom): https://storytogether.com/2020/06/11/isaiah-the-gray-part-13/

The Hundred-Faced Man

“What is this place?” asks Isaiah.

“It is the Sith contribution,” replies They.

Isaiah looks around. The Force has no answers. “Contribution to what?”

“To you. To me,” says They.

Isaiah shakes his head. “I don’t understand,” he says.

“I know,” says They firmly. “Please, come here.”

The three men immediately are compelled to walk forward. As Isaiah resists, the other two sense the incredible strain on the Force within the room. Ultimately though, they find themselves standing by the machine, awaiting their fate.

A Destiny Fulfilled

Through the Force, They opens a conduit – a wormhole of sorts – through the fabric of reality itself. Inside, the Abyss meets the men’s souls, as if gazing through a mirror, and latches onto their very essences with an indomitable hold.

Jimmy C and Issac turn to Isaiah, feeling a profound change within their companion. The Force pulsates around him like a gravity well and eons of Force potential flow in and out of Isaiah’s system. He neither howls in pain nor collapses; Isaiah merely endures, his countenance severe yet focused.

The anomaly of Force energy around him dissipates.

“It is done,” states They flatly.

“What…have…you…done…to…me?” asks Isaiah, nearly out of breath.

“I have moved things along. It is not for me to say what happened. Perhaps the Force will share that with you in time,” answers They. “May the Force carry you to where you feel you need to go.”

What’s Next?

They disappears into thin air. Isaiah, Jimmy, and Captain Issac look around but see and feel nothing. Jimmy turns to Isaiah.

“Are you alright? What the hell was that?” he asks, anxiety permeating his voice.

“I…I don’t know. I, I hear now. Well…understand maybe. I feel a presence in me that I did not feel or hear before. It feels like him, but…not all,” says Isaiah, confused and still processing what’s just happened to him.

“Gentlemen, perhaps its best we return to the ship,” interrupts Captain Issac. “There, we can rest and discuss. I fear here we may not be safe for much longer.”
