Jaina jumped up, horrified. Uncle Luke always said that when she became a Jedi Knight, she should never draw her blade, except for practice, unless she was willing to kill.
   Jaina had never even touched a lightsaber.

   "Jacen, my friend," Tenel Ka said. "Perhaps we had better leave soon. We do not want all of the injured students to come away with us and leave Master Skywalker here alone."
   "What do you mean? Why would you worry about that?"
   "Because, a Jedi must have patients."
   "I don't believe it..."
   Jaina shook her head in wonder. "Sounded to me like she just told a joke."
   "This is a fact!" Jacen said.

   "We'll be able to speculate all we want about Kuar in a couple of minutes," Jaina said. We"re almost to the atmosphere. Okay, hit it, Lowie. As I always say, show me- don't tell me."
   Tenel Ka raised an eyebrow and turned to Jacen. "Does she always say that? I have not heard her say it before."

   Then, in a move so instinctive that a moment later she couldn't even remember it, Jaina found her own lightsaber in her hand, its electric-violet beam humming and pulsating.
   "You see, Jaina," Zekk said, "once you let it in, the dark side is like a disease for which there's no cure." He lunged toward her, and their two blades met in a sizzling struggle of red against violet. "And the only way to remove the disease"- he lunged again and again and Jaina parried- "is to"- thrust- "cut"- thrust- "it"- thrust- "out!"

   "Glad to see you're feeling better," a warm voice said close behind her.
   Jaina whirled. "Zekk!"
   "In the flesh- more or less, that is," he said. "You looked like a roasted nerf sausage when I picked you up a few days ago. Now I can hardly tell you were burned."
   Jaina smiled at her friend. "I thought you were part of my dream," Jaina said. "I kept thinking that I was waking up, and I would see your face, kind of distant and blurry... but always there.

[ Zekk hugs Jaina and speeches about why he has to go off into mortal perial and she can't. Sentiment ensues. ]

   She unclenched her fists, slid her arms around his back, and squeezed him tightly.
   "Well then," Jaina said, somewhere between a laugh and a choke, "what are we waiting for? We have a ship to get ready for its most important flight ever. You got everything we need, Em Teedee?"
   "Yes, indeed, Mistress Jaina."
   Zekk pressed his cheek against hers. "Thank you," he whispered.

   "Nice turnabout, Jaina," Zekk said, with a tense smile. "About time you came to rescue me for a change!"
   "Kind of a family tradition. Dad did the same thing for Uncle Luke at the Death Star, you know. Anyway, couldn't let you keep thinking you're the only one who can pull off a surprise rescue."
