Khalifa's right hand instinctively fell on her hips, where the hilts of her twin green & blue lightsabers lay. She ignited her blades and gestured to the other Padawan learners. "This is our first time commander troops by our selves. Our Masters are counting on us to take this base!" She raised her fist and shouted along with the others as they prepared for battle.

Shla's senses could barely detect movement. Then it all came back to her - the battle, the defeat (for now), everything. Stretching her snake-like body, her tentacle hair grabbed her electric whip. She was ready for action. But first, Khalifa...
Khalifa vaulted across the rocky terrain of the plant Viliis, "Wollfe," she spoke into her comlink, "We have an incoming wave of droids, prepare your sky asault." "Roger that, Commander Syndulla. We'll give those clankers to somethin' to chew on." "I'm sure you will, Captain. " She ignited her blades and began swinging at the incoming wave of droids. She raced forward leaving a trail of destroyed b1 droids behind her. Her comlink crackled to life, "uh, sir," came Wollfe's voice. "Captain?" "We have a problem, sir. They've got tanks." "Push forard with the ground assault, prepare air assault as planned. I'll take care of those buckets." "Sir, yes, sir." Khalifa sprinted forward and used the force to leap onto the incoming tank. Grabbing a thermal detonater from her pack she heaved the lid open and threw in the surprise. "Wha-wha?" The startled commander droid stuttered mechanically. Khalifa slammed it shut and somersaulted up to the upper level repeating her actions. She lept from the tank into a dive roll just as the explosion erupted behind her. She landed in a battle stance, glancing behind her with a grin. "Master Sla, this is Padawan Syndulla" she called into her comlink. "The droid forces have been destroyed we are advancing toward the capital. Should we press our attack" no reply, worriedly, she called into her comlink. "Master Sla. Are you there? Do you read me? Master Sla. Come in Master Sla!

(spell my name with an 'h' Hazelfern) Shla realized that she was being signaled and quickly responded. "Khalifa? Khalifa! Yes I am there, report. Where are you? What has been going on? Have the clones who have joined forces with Sidious, overrun Aaeton? Or Quadron seven? THE DROIDS! What are they on Viliis for? Prepare Dragonfly lll at once and go for the terrestrial vehicles. I have my reasons, Padawan. Fly if they come within 10 klins of your ships. I will come as soon as possible. Over." Shla slithered over to Plaxogen Aslo, her galactic fighter, keeping her wings hidden. They were used at the greatest need and she did not want to tear them. How awkward it was that her cape got stuck in the door! I knew that I should have gotten rid of that thing, she thought. Plax. took off, with Shla swiftly driving it to Viliis.

Khalifia sighed down at her comlink, "Yes master." She hoped off the boulder she had been sitting on and pattted her astromech, R5-K4, "Well R5, I got my orders, power up the Dragonfly and standby in case I need you." R5 beeped his reply. Khalifa pressed her comlink again, "Wolffe, take your ARC troopers and head behind enemy lines. See if you can shut down their power source. Then it'll be downhill form there onwards." "Sir, yes Sir!" Wolffe replied, "I have order the troops to fall back into the forest to prepare he heavy artillery. Shall I change their orders?" "No, no." Khalifa waved her hand absently, "Continue as you planned, just have those tanks shut down in two rotations." "Copy that commander." and his comlink crackled into silence
"Master!" Khalifa force somersalted over a boulder and landed at her masters feet. She looked up at Shla with a slightly hurt expression. "The dragonfly's ready, R5 has that under control, but please, master, why do you need her? The 53rd is handling the tanks fine," she glared at Shla, "Your thoughts betray you master. You think I'm to young to handle this," Khalifa narrowed her eyes, "Well, I'm not! I may have be made a padawan at 14 standard seasons, but I can handle battles well enough, I would be out their helping my men, if you hadn't called me back here for pointless lectures in Jedi etiquette!" She turned and ran through the dense Vili forest, where she knew Shla couldn't follow her.

Shla slithered after her. "No I don't think anything of the sort! I-" Khalifa was too far away to hear her. Shla groaned. She didn't want her Padawan to think that she had limitations THAT stern. All the same, Shla couldn't bear to imagine Syndulla dying in battle, all because she had been too careless. Shla cared for her Padawan like a parent. But there was no time to think about that any longer. The battle was about to start!
(HF plz DON'T be offended in real life)

Khalifa jumped from branch to branch, racing through the forest with only the force to guide her, "Stupid rules," she muttered. "Commander?" Wollfe asked through the comlink. 'Report, Commander Wollfe." she snapped. "We've taken the base and hotwired their security system." "Good, call of the ground assault and order all platoons to fall back to the ammunition station." "Sir?" Wollfe asked uncertainly, "We are behind enemy lines, if they fall back to us-" "Wollfe, I need the platoons back their by the time I arrive, I'm only two clicks from your position." "Sir, if our troops fall back the enemy will adavance towards General Shla's position." Khalifa smiled quitely, "They won't. This forest is a death trap, only a Jedi could survive." "Commander, the troops are regrouping." "Good work Wollfe. I'll explain the plan in more detail when I arrive." "Copy that."

"KHALIFAAAAA!!" Shla screamed, as she descended down to the rocky earth of Viliis. It looked as though Shla had been using her wings. What had actually happened was that she had launched herself towards her padawan, by using the rockets of plax. aslo, and a little help from her flying, astromech droid, S3-12. Unfortunately, she fell into a lake of quickmud (knockoff of quicksand). That didn't stop her from spilling everything out to Khalifa. "KhalifaI'msosorrythatyoudidnotgettoplanoutthebattlebutpleaseunderstandthatIdidn'tmeanitlikethat- AAAH!! I'm sinking!" It was true. Shla couldn't get out of the quickmud and was indeed sinking. Her snake-like body couldn't get herself out. She was stuck, and in danger.
Khalifa crouched behind a boulder in the Vili plains. The approaching convoy was escorted by at least two squadrons of battle droids. Khalifa fingered a smooth pebble and chucked it past the first line of droids. Khalifa couldn't hear the droids' conversations but 3 droids rounded the boulder. Khalifa ignited her blade and slashed through the closet two. She force pushed the other into the ground. She leapt onto her boulder, reflecting blasts for the droids. She closed her eyes and force pushed the entire squadron to a pile of rubble. She force leaped onto the top of the tank and placed a detonator inside, slamming it shut on the confused droid commander. She somersaulted off and jumped into a patch of thickly growing Vili trees. The droids, apparently having lost their target, continued their slow adavance with their weakened escort. Khalifa grinned and grabbed the detonator, she pressed it slowloy and watched as the smoke spirlaled into the ever clear sky. "That's what you get, clankers, if you mess with a Jedi Padawan." she frowned as she aid the last words. She was more powerful than the most padawans, yet Shla couldn't see it. She glanced around and headed across the plains towards the ammo station. She gritted her teeth, her monotrals and padawan braid swinging viloently, I'll prove myself to Shla, she told herself, You'll bet I will

Shla struggled, but it was no use. The more she struggled, the deeper she sank. She wondered whether she had ever been too harsh with her padawan. As she sank deeper, she gave up the hope of being rescued, because now even her wings couldn't save her. She thought she was at the point of death, and figured that Khalifa would save her and be a hero and then think that she had proven Shla wrong. But she would not have, as there was nothing to prove. Shla stopped struggling, and cried like a youngling.
