(Takes place immediately after VISION) Jerella and Rob jogged along the path from their meditation clearing toward the main Academy buildings. As they ran, they mindspoke one another. *I've never experienced anything like that before, Rob. It was so REAL!* Jerella automatically pushed a dangling vine out of the way telekinetically. *Well, what are you going to do then?* Rob inquired. *I'd be happy to take you wherever it was, but I think we need more than just you and me to get in there to rescue Octavia.* *I don't know. If Master Skywalker were here, I'd just ask him, but he's off someplace with R2 and his Xwing, and I can't even reach him through our link.* She glanced over to Rob who was restricting his pace to match her shorter one. *Is there anyone else you know who would listen to me and not tell me I was crazy?* Rob was briefly silent, obviously thinking about the senior members of the Academy staff. *Well, how about Master Rionni? He's supposed to be experienced at farseeing.* *Then we'll look for him.* She sent a tendril of affection to Rob and increased her pace, wanting to share the troubling vision with someone with the authority to order something done about it. The path back to the Academy proper seemed longer than usual, but finally they were jogging up to the ancient carved building that housed the faculty's offices and many of the classrooms. As they crossed the stone paved courtyard, Jerella noticed a short woman with braided dark hair exiting the building, turning toward the area where a handful of battered landspeeders were parked. A tall woman with white hair, holding a wriggling baby, was waiting by one of the speeders and handed the child to her as the shorter woman approached. Jerella ducked inside the door and grinned at the double take an admin tech at the lobby com console gave her. *Looks like we've got a new worker who isn't aware of your look alike.* Rob teased. *He'll get used to it. Where's Master Rionni's office?* Rob paused a moment. *Second level.* When they got there, the door was closed and no one answered Jerella's knock. She sighed. *I guess we'll have to wait until later. How about we go eat lunch. I'm starving.* Rob agreed and and led the way out of the building toward the canteen. As they came around the corner, though, Rob broke into a sprint. *Come on! I just saw Master Rionni head out into the forest.* Jerella picked up her pace and followed him into the shaded path and shortly, they came up on the robed form of the Jedi Master. "Master Rionni? May we speak with you?" she called out.
