We were coming down the escalator when it happened. Since we were up pretty high, we saw everything clearly. A (really pretty cute) guy was just casually walking along. Both of us were watching him because of before mentioned cuteness. He walked past this girl in a long trench coat and stopped suddenly, turning to watch her as she continued to walk on. He stuck his hand inside his jacket, which cause Ruby to clutch my arm in a death grip, her over active imagination turning him into a suicide bomber or the like.
The truth was far more sinister.
He pulled out a lightsaber, pressing a button on the handle and
causing a red blade slide out. He raised the lightsaber above his head, and
sprinted towards the girl, bringing it down in an arc….
Only to be blocked by the blue lightsaber that she had pulled from
her coat pocket. They then began to engage in a fierce battle…
Which was when we reached the ground. We couldn’t see the two of
them, as a crowd had gathered and both of us are somewhat vertically challenged.
‘Quick!’ I cried to Ruby. ‘Get to high ground!’
The two of us looked around frantically, until Ruby grabbed my arm
and pulled me towards the fountain nearby. The two of us clambered up onto the
ledge surrounding it, giving ourselves a clear view of the action. In the time
we had been blind, two more Jedi and another Sith had joined in the battle.
Lightsabers were flying everywhere, blades glowing and buzzing as they clashed.
They all looked around Ruby and I’s age, some of them maybe older, wearing
casual clothes. Nothing really out
That was, at least, until a casual observer ripped off his long coat
and pulled down his hood to reveal a facefull of DARTH MAUL TATTOOS.
From there on in it got a little weirder.
He pulled out at double bladed red lightsaber (which is one of the
coolest things I’ve ever seen) from a shopping bag, and with a roar, dropped
the stuff he was carrying and joined the battle.
One of the Jedi fell beneath his blade, and it looked as though the
Sith where going to triumph, until four more Jedi spilled onto the scene.
One of the Sith was quickly killed, leaving only Darth Maul and the
original Sith standing. Another Jedi fell beneath the blade of the Sith, but
they were still outnumbered five to two, and they were fading fast.
Which was when I decided, lovely as we were, it would be good of us
to help out.
‘Quickly Rubes, follow my lead!’ I told her, ripping the plastic off
my mask and strapping it onto my face, glancing up to see that another two Jedi
had joined the battle, and they had the Sith, who were back to back,
Ruby looked at me a little strangely, but followed suit, pulling on
her Ironman mask. As she did this, I executed the quickest Nerf gun unwrapping
and assemblement in the history of the world. Ruby finished only slightly after
me, her gun being somewhat smaller.
‘Okay Rubes, here’s the plan. Go in, kill the Jedi, get out. Got
She nodded in reply, and though I couldn’t see her face beneath the
mask, I could swear she was smiling wickedly.
With a yell, we jumped from our platforms,
plunging into the crowd and towards the battle.
To be continued at a later date ;)
