2 drabble: Arguments (or Buffy's first lesson)

2 drabble: Arguments (or Buffy's first lesson)

Master Gallia was sitting cross legged on the floor, while Buffy was standing, arms crossed and eyebrow raised, listening.

“Jedi must be passive; there is no anger, hate, fear…” Adi Gallia was in full lecture mode. She and her new Padawan learner, Buffy were having their first lesson.

“Be kind, rewind, I don’t think we are on the same page here.”

Adi Gallia looked at her apprentice. Having her teacher’s attention, Buffy uncrossed her arms and came closer.

“There is anger, hate, fear…they are not dangerous unless we lose ourselves in it. If we do something out of anger and hatred, or we do something because it is the right thing to do.”

Gallia shook her head, but Buffy lifted her hand, palm up in universal sign for ‘stop it’.

“You talked and I listened, now it’s your turn to listen…now where was I…oh yes, if you deny those feelings, forcefully repress them, bottling it away, pretending it isn’t there … if something happens to you that is so terrible that you can not possibly imagine, an event then erases the line between light and dark.”

“No, no it doesn’t! The Jedi Code–”

“Those are just words!” said Buffy through gritted teeth, what is it with councils and the Codes of non-attachment, secrecy and all that?

“There is no anger, there is no hatred, and there is no fear...” She continues with a little mock in her tone, while repeating the code.

“Well I say; stuff it. There is fear, greed, and anger, and hatred.”

Then Buffy’s voice softens. “But there are also emotions that balance this…bravery, hope, loyalty, compassion, friendship, kindness, and most importantly love. And love is one of the most powerful things in the existence, that is what defines us. Deny evil and you deny the good as well. There can be no light without the dark. There has to be a balance and all that.”

“You are not a Jedi, yet. You don’t understand.”

“What are you…made of stone? To be without emotions means you don’t have passion. And passion is life, we all have it, we all feel it.”

“Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, and hate leads to the Dark side of the Force.”

Buffy rolled her eyes at the mantra. “ People who do the right thing despite their fear, they are brave. Anger can help you when you are fighting to save an innocent, it can give you the drive needed. But the key is that you don’t lose your mind, your ability to think.”

Flashing a beautiful smile at her irritated teacher, “There is something we agree on…hate is a waste of time and energy, it clouds your thinking…and” Buffy’s eyes became hard. ”Vengeance is cruel and can wound the innocents.”

Taking a calming breath Buffy sits down across from Master Gallia, locking their eyes and continues with serious tone.

“Control your emotions, making them work for you not against you! Try and kill it, you end up killing the person you are.”
