      He made a fair point and Desiree agreed with him about the Jedi not being active enough in the galaxy. They were content to sit by and rarely ever actually involved themselves in the matters that they were supposed to be trained for. It took so long to do anything as a member of the Order and as time had passed, the blonde had just lost faith in their ways. Oh, there was some truth to what they taught and the idea about keeping a cool head in a crisis was admirable but they took it to a level where they just didn't do anything at all. She'd referred to them as droid like in the past and the blonde thought that it was accurate. They viewed everything as a machine would and that was one of their greatest weaknesses. They lacked the compassion to understand others or at least try to understand them and how could anyone help those in need without that?

      His question brought a soft smile to her lips and she then reached out to his mind, using the Force to link her's with his,

      "I've had a fair amount of practice with it," she answered through the Force, before briefly going back to what they had just been talking about, still using telepathy, "We shouldn't be assuming that killing will always be the end result though, right? You've said before that we need to be adaptable and surely that means that we should be keeping our minds open to peaceful solutions as well as violent. I get that a lot of us think of ourselves as assassins but there is more to us than that, yeah?"

      Jacob wasn't surprised she'd get that right away and he then said to her back through the Force after she finished, We're not assassins, Desiree. If it means we have to kill then we have to. Not always my first choice but I do what I feel is necessary. If it can't be through peaceful means then it has to be violent. Or if it may compromise us then we must kill those who witness or know too much. We adapt to what we must and some day you might have to take a life to save others.

      He then nodded at the last statement he made letting that idea sink in before he then clasped his hands behind his back and walked away from the creek. Jacob then looked up at the sky and then toward the main planet of Ruusan and smiled at it before he looked back toward the horizon and view in front of him. Granted the view was of a broken maze and the terrain had been trampled and destroyed, though things were growing up here and there throughout the years. He then trailed his eyes along a path where he ran through before when he was training himself when he was but just a student under Invictus. It was then he remembered it all and then chuckled for a moment.

      Canting his head towards Desiree he then said, "I want you to run."

      His answer eased her mind somewhat but she couldn't help but find his apathy regarding killing to be a little off putting. She didn't speak any more of the subject although the blonde promised herself that taking a life would always be a last resort for her and only if there was no other way around the situation. Why was she so stubborn about the subject? The answer was that she knew that once a person started thinking of taking life in a casual way then that chain of thought would only end up creating a love for it in their mind and at that point, they would no longer be able to help anyone. Desiree knew that many of the Dark Jedi were either Sith or that they had come from rather violent backgrounds and that was where she was different. She didn't have those dark experiences fuelling her and honestly, something that she was actually thankful for. She'd find another way to solve her problems, no matter what it took.

      She rose an eyebrow at his request but quickly realised what he was after and stood up after a moment or two,

      "Been a while since I've tried this," she said honestly.

      With that, she started to sprint, allowing the Force to flow through her body and mind, increasing her speed. She was a little rusty but soon began to get to grips with the skill again. The lesson was certainly a great chance for her to get back in to Force shape.

      Jacob watched her dart off and smiled. Well, he couldn't say it was complete rust that she had. That'd be lying if he said it because it took her a moment with a newer setting and new way of channeling the Force but after she sped off he then relaxed himself. Truth be told he was usually used to having to completely teach those who were his students how to do everything regarding the Force. Not that he minded it but at times he wished he could find someone who was already well aware of all the abilities who'd been a former Sith so that he could teach them and not have to go from scratch. Teaching Desiree wasn't that sort of case but it was just in a different aspect. She knew the Force but just didn't harness her darker emotions.

      With that, Jacob watched her speed off and run back to him. Smiling as she stopped in her tracks, the Knight then clapped his hands before setting them down at his sides. Now that she had returned he then walked over to a few pillars which fell atop one another at different heights. He then looked up at them and then back at Desiree before he then smiled. Turning his head to the pillars he motioned with his head to them and then clasped his hands behind his back.

      "Now I want you to jump up to each of these. Shouldn't be too hard right?" Jacob said with a smirk.

      "I hope not otherwise I'm going to end up landing on my rear," she answered with a smirk of her own.

      Turning towards the pillars, the blonde once more focused the Force in to her legs and began to move towards the pillars, using the momentum to giver her the speed she needed. Once she was ready, Desiree then leaped up and managed to land on the shortest pillar. It was a bit of a clumsy effort but she handled it well enough. It gave her another boost of confidence and after a few moments, she then turned towards the second pillar and jumped again. With her increasing confidence, it was a breeze in the end and she landed perfectly on it. Without a further thought, the Initiate attempted the last jump, flipped over and ended up in a handstand position on top of the last pillar. Her rustiness was definitely gone now and she laughed from her aerial position, her blonde hair covering most of her face as she looked down at Jacob.

      "Nice she view from up here," she simply said, her blue eyed gaze focused on the Knight.
