Leaving the room silently Brandon sought the exit, though he couldn't fully explain why he needed to get out. It was painful to be around the joy and happiness back in the small house. The history they shared was something Brandon would have killed for, at most all he would ever be is a shadow of the man they once knew. He was proud to be Dantes grand son but he knew that remaining with these people would mean always being seen through these blinkers.

Without noticing the transition he was out on the street now, the buzz of the crowd lifted his spirits a little. He found life too quiet away fro Nar Shadda and it was good to blend into a crowd again. Blending was something Brandon was truly gifted at, he could vanish easily and even when he couldnt he managed to not attract notice if he didn't want it. His silent musings and grumblings brought him to the towns boundary, a large green expanse lay before him with a slight layer of morning dew lying upon it. Brandon tied his robes tight at the front and shook out his legs judging the distance ahead of him.. he hoped it was enough to tire him. When he was awoken to the force he found certian things came to him easily.. Fighting, awareness, reactions bordering on pre cognition but most of all was his speed. He outpaced many of the jedi Knights running at full pace and he often found he was at his most calm when he wa running and exerting himself.

The run began, building in velocity. When Brandon eventually hit his peak of speed he could have caught up with a desert skimmer easily. Continuing at this speed he saw a lake on the horizon, without blinking he leaped. His trajectory carried him easily over the expanse of water and he landed on the other side with a soft thud. 20 minutes later he stopped and looked around him. The clearing was empty. With a grin he popped out his blades, the new one Serenity gave him in his right hand. Working through the motions the arcs of silver and blue spun around his body in a beautiful pattern. Increasing the tempo he threw in leaps and flips with the combat, he had combined the style of fighting he had learned from Dantes holocube and from various others. He had combined them to suit his incredible speed, he had to say it worked well and he had never been beated during th trials.

Launching himself in the air he spun like a childs toy with arcs of death glimmering around him, hitting the ground coiled like a predator.

It didn't take Les long to find Brandon. He absolutely radiated with the Force right now, using for his speed and amazing jump. Les admitted that he could probably do the same, but was ok taking the long way.

As he started the long walk around the lake, he saw the flashing of silver and blue where Brandon was. He was trying out his new blade. 'Good', Les thought, 'He should know that side of himself.'

As he neared closer, he saw him hit the ground in a crushing blow sending dirt and bits of grass into the air. He leaned against a tree and grinned as he watched him, "Feeling unwelcome?"

Brandon launched himself into a slow back flip landing soundlessly and sheather his lightsabers. " No, not unwelcome... just in the way ". Thinking better of it he tossed his blades in the air and flipped into the air again catching them mid air and igniting them. Spinning again like a tornado he came back to earth landing crouched and ready for another attack.

Les walked forward slightly and the familiar snapping sound came from his own lightsaber as he stood forward. "Let's see how well you fight then..."

Brandon grinned, he had been dying to have a rematch after Les had thoroughly kicked his ass on Nar Shadda. " Lets do it " he laughed and spun his blades in an arc loosening his muscles. One second he was standing still the next he was in the air hurtling towards Les his blades seeking out a weak point yet ready to pull back incase the jedi master slipped up.

Les could just barely make out the blur that was Brandon jumping towards him, but through the Force things seemed to happen automatically. He let Brandon come in at him with his attacks and blocked what he could. Because of his speed, he was not able to block all of his attacks and instead simply moved out of the way. He did a back flip into the air and onto a branch landing on it gracefully. The branch, under normal circumstances, would never have held his weight, but Les was a master of the Force, and made this look easy.

He waited for Brandon's attack again, looking down at him from above, "You've gotten much quicker Brandon."

A bead of sweat was running down brandons face and he took a second to notice the Les looked like he was just enjoying a quiet evening in the sun, apart from the face he was sitting in a tree. This pissed him off. Moving in zig zags to throw off the predictability of his attacks he ran up the side of the tree launchinh himself backwards in a flip attempting to slash as Les when he came into view.

Les shot up into the air as the branch split into two. He grabbed another branch and flipped around it, using it's momentum to throw him into the field they had started in. "But as fast as you are, you are not using the Force, which could make you near to unbeatable."

Gritting his teeth Brandon gave chase opeing up a flurry of his very best moves, he was moving faster than he even he thought was possible and with this speed he unleashed a flurry of the very best tricks up his sleeve.

Les blocked each strike that he could and realized he couldn't keep this up forever. He stepped out of the way as a swing came down and hit into the dirt. Just then he built up the Force and pushed it hard into Brandon's chest sending him flying and skidding against the dirt. Brandon used the Force to leap into the air and come down hard on Brandon. Just as he was about to land on Brandon though, he used what Dante had called a 'Force Bomb' and dropped it hard next to Brandon's body. A crater twice as deep and three times as wide as Brandon exploded in to the air sending debris flying in all directions. He stood over Brandon looking down at him for a moment then offering a hand to help him up, "If you want, I can show you..."

Groaning and coughing Brandon got to his feet wincing, he was sure he had a broken rib. However the concept of learning the move that had just so completely destroyed him kept him on his feet.

"Ok old man " he coughed, picking some dirt of his tongue. " I'm listening "

Les grinned, "Your speed is absolutely devastating, but uncontrolled. Instead of using your speed as a means of moving, use the Force to move you. Give yourself to the Force as you take your first step and let it guide you." He demonstrated as he stepped regularly on the ground and launched himself into a dead sprint, running up a tree and spinning backwards as he landed on the ground in front of Brandon.

"The Force is your ally Brandon and a great ally it is. Listen to it. Let it flow through you and let it tell you where to step." He stepped back and crossed his arms waiting for him to do it.

Brandon calmed his mind, which was easier said than done really but he did it. Going through the motions he had learned at the temple he surrendered to the force. It felt as if static was building in his body when he took the first step.

"Wow" was all Brandon could say when he was back where he started a fraction later after performing the exact same move that Les had done. Brandon knew he could move fast but what he had done was something else. Once the awe of what he had just done passed an fire burned in his muscles. He had moved fast but how fast had he really moved, what kind of speed had brought on this fatigue. He slumped to the ground. Wondering if he over did it he rubbed his calf. He looked up to les with a look that clearly asked the question

Les grinned and knelled down, "The untrained muscles need time to adapt. It takes a lot of practice for you to be able to do this for a long period of time. If you want to become good at this technique, you will need to practice it every day, meditating before and after to prepare and regenerate your muscles. Over time, you will not need to meditate for very long, or at all." He put his hand on Brandon's calf and closed his eyes. Using the Force, he pushed away the soreness and remended the torn muscles. "Better?"

Brandon rolled his ankles and got back on his feet, the pain was gone and the musces in his legs were like rocks, as if he had just done hours of training.
Squaring his shoulders he looked back to les, " Show me how to do that force blast thing, i have since force push before but this is something else"

Les had Brandon's attention like no one else ever had, he wanted this knowledge so badly.

"The Force Blast is like the Force Push except instead of focusing on one thing to push with the Force, you focus on the Force entirely. In an instant, nothing else matters but the Force as you build it into your palm," Les began to build the Force in his palm like he had said and his palm began to glow blue slightly, "Let the Force gather around in your fingers, control where you want it to go, where you want to focus on. Build it around your hand like a bubble. Let it swarm around your hand but keep it focused on your palm, then release it all at once not focusing on the object at all." Les pointed his hand at a nearby stump and shot a hole clean through it. It looked like someone had shot a blaster bolt through the stump, but there were no burn makes.
