The Hard Road of Redemption
Bran didn’t waste much time pondering the Bothan’s words. He knew all the horrible atrocities he committed. Bran had killed more jedi than just Trangle Lightspeeder. It was something he’d learn to live with. The road to redemption was uphill. Though he now tread in the light, it was tenuous. Bran still felt the temptation of the dark side beckoning, its song promiscuous and passionate. He’d have to deny it for the rest of his life.
Though there was wisdom in what Shayle said, Bran didn’t need a reminder for guilt. He carried plenty for himself. Bran was not the type to waste away in the emotion. He would face this new future much like he did at other points in his life, through adaptation. He did hope, however, for a fair trial and perhaps even communication with his father, if possible. He would not squander a second chance if he somehow received it in the days to come.
Having a bit of privacy, Bran closed his eyes and entered communion with the Force. It had been some time since the connection was absent of anger or fear. He let its energies wash over him, beginning the true healing of a troubled soul. At least for now he was alive and breathing, no small feat given his previous situation. Though ahead a difficult journey waited, Bran became mindful of the moment.
For now, he was free.
