I look out of my Jedi starfighter. I see darkness, evil, so much fighting. I remember my mission, to keep peace, as there is a new war in the galaxy. I remember how the evil Machine Lord used his sinister robot army to take over a planet, which was unnamed. As I sit it the cockpit while my droid, R7-S9, pilot the starfighter. Suddenly he swerves, as I realize we have found a asteroid belt. “Arseven, I’ll take over. “ I grab the control, swerving after each asteroid SEEMS to hit us. Then, I see the planet, my new home. I again start remembering. This time I remember how my planet was destroyed in this war. Then I start to hate, but then stop myself. “Jedi aren’t supposed to hate,” I think, but really it is quite hard when somebody destroys your home. I have my droid take over again, and think about my life before I became a Jedi. Before I got myself into this mess. I was liked then. I now am wanted for disobeying the empire in 56 planets. I get ready to land, and then see a hungry desert monster below. I had wished I wasn’t sent to Tatooine, a desert land where many crime lords ruled, including Jabba the hut. I notice the sand people around, also known as Tuscan Raiders. I watch as they gather marveling at my ship. I had 1,200 lightsabers. I could take ‘em! Or so I thought…
TO BE CONTINUED!
I thought I could take them. I pretended I knew
I could take them. I decided not to use my lightsabers because that might startle them. I took out my small blaster, but I would use the ship’s cannons as much as possible. I look at the cannon data section of the screen. Still 81 blasts left. I turn them on. “Arseven, you keep aim at the Tuscan Raiders, and I’ll contact the rebels. “ I pull out my com, and tell the rebels quickly,” I’ve landed on Tatooine. There are sand people here. I’ll find Luke soon.” I looked out the cockpit windshield. I could see a bunch of dead Tuscan Raiders, and could see more coming. “Arseven! How many shots do we have left?” He beeped which meant, “Right now we have seventeen. “ I shouted back,” Reload at five. I’ll fire my blaster while you are reloading.” He beeped an affirmative. I got ready for fire, and then R7 beeped, so I open the hatch and fired at the raiders. I have had a bad experience with the raiders, so I shot with extra precision. I shot six with ten blasts! Then R7 beeped the cannon was loaded and we now had 100 shots. Then, all the blasts from the raiders stopped. I looked down to see Luke Skywalker with his lightsaber, deflecting about all of the shots. The R7 shot the rest of them with ease, because it is much easier to blast with getting blasted. Then I went down to see Luke, although R7 beeped he couldn’t see him. I pull out my com again and tell the rebels I have found Luke.I open the hatch and hop out of my ship. I watch as Luke pulled out his lightsaber.The way he did it , it didn’t seem like the Jed way.It looked like it was almost out of anger.I looked and I wondered.He didn’t seem like the Luke Skywalker that the Rebels used as a spokeperson. R7 beeped that he couldn’t see anything. I wonded it R7’s photoreceptors needed work. R7 had never had this problem before. Then I had an idea. I yelled to Luke,” Want to do some lightsaber practice?”He yelled back,” Sure!” I fired, he blocked. I fired again , and it hit , and he fell over bleeding. I had killed Luke Skywalker.
TO BE CONTINUED!
I watched, wondering why I had even become a Jedi in the first place. I wanted a family , offspring, and just a normal job, like a pilot. I had found love once, but yet I chose not to marry. I chose to be a Jedi. And now I was a traitor. I aimed my gun at my head, ready to shoot. But then, Luke weakly raised up one arm and stopped me. And then….
I woke up from my dream.I was still in my house in Mir,even though my dream seemed so real. I was still a Jedi, even though I had not been sent on that mission … yet. And Luke wasn’t even born ! Yet I still had that dream. I wondered if it had been a prophecy, but I doubted that. But I still wondered. Then I hopped into my spacecraft, and headed off to the Jedi temple.
At the Jedi temple, Master Yoda gave me the dreaded assignment, just as I thought he would. One question I asked him was, “ Can I have any allies? Master Yoda replied, “ Mistrustable, sometimes allies can be. Choose wisely, you must,” After this I thought very deeply.I had read about the war in the Mir Daily. I thought maybe Ninja Girl or RCG.
I hopped into the spacecraft again, this time will R7 at my side. Now that I had my allies picked out in my head, all I had to do was to hope that they would accept. R7 got into the Astromech droid section of my craft. “Start her up, R7!” My ship started up, and jumped into hyperspace to the planet where Machine Lord was.
Then I get a new assignment. The com says, “ Plans, we must change. A being with a lightsaber has been spotted on Tatoonie . I grab the controls, and start heading towards Tatoonie.
On Tatoonie, I find the lightsaber woman almost immediatly. She was a mind witch, the one who had made Luke in my dream. I just felt it in my gut. And normally a Jedi’s gut is a trustable thing… to be continued.
I stared at the woman who looked fairly nice, but then I remembered that mind witches could control anything related to the brain. So I guess she was making herself more pretty than she looked.
“Hello,” she said in a sweet voice.
Suspiciously, I said, “Hello” back.
Then I looked down. R7 was missing. I remembered that he came with me. I wondered if this mind witch had anything to do with it.
I asked, “Have you seen a droid around? He’s an astromech droid, and he’s red.”
She replied, “I thought I saw him go that way.” She pointed westward.
I looked that way, and all I saw was sand, but those tracks did look a little familiar. I ran that way, but in my head I kept thinking it was the wrong way.
Suddenly, something slammed into my leg, and then I realized that R7 was beside me the whole time though I could not see him. I told him, “Go see if you can slam into the witch. Maybe see if you can make her lose her concentration.”
Although I couldn’t see him, I knew R7 was doing his best to slam into the witch.
After a while I saw R7 again and the galaxy’s ugliest woman. Then the fair looking woman appeared again. So then I knew it was an illusion. I decided to stop playing games.
“I know your tricks, you mind witch.”
She stopped making herself pretty, and R7 reappeared by my side. I activated my lightsaber only to have the witch cough.
“Don’t like pineapples?” I laughed.
The mind witch suddenly blurted out, “Would you please stop calling me the mind witch? I have a name, you know. It’s Syb’l.”
With my lightsaber in my hand, I ran, but it seemed like I couldn’t. It was like hitting a big brick wall. Could she control my nerves, too? If so, I was stuck in one place. I ran back to Syb’l. I would have to fight hand-to-hand combat except it wasn’t exactly a fair fight. Without my senses and my reflexes, I wasn’t sure I could beat Syb’l, but I would have to try. Just as I was about to strike, an idea popped into my head. Rather than fighting head on, I could use the force to keep Syb’l from reacting to my fight. Although I would eventually wear myself out from using the force for so long, it would probably work. I tried forcing Syb’l, and eventually I did wear out hoping I would not fall asleep while Syb’l was around. Then somehow I felt blood. I looked down. Blood was oozing out of my stomach area. Then Syb’l punched me right on the face, and everything became black . . . to be continued.
“Grant,” a voice said. “Grant,” the voice said this time a little louder. “Grant, come downstairs. I made eggs and bacon.” I opened my eyes. I was at my house in the 21st century, so my Jedi adventure was just dreams, so I hoped. I walked down the stairs, savoring the smell of bacon. Yummy! I looked at my mother. She looked as though time had stopped while I was gone, or was I even gone? Maybe Syb’l was making me back home just in my head. I slapped myself hoping to get out of my house, and then I realized that Syb’l was probably being my mom, and I did not want to find out. So I just played this little game. Once I was at the table, mom said to me, “No toys at the table.”
I asked, “What toys?”
She looked at my belt. I noticed my lightsaber was still in its holster.
“But, Mom,” I started to groan.
“No buts. Now give the toy to me, and eat your breakfast!”
Then I knew Syb’l was being my mother but in a clever way. I still wanted to play along, but it was kind of hard at that moment.
I said, “Mom, I’m 27 years old now. Don’t you think I can move out of the house sometime? I mean, I need my tools at the table. Stop being so overprotective.”
Syb’l tried to look hurt but wasn’t very good at that look.
I smiled. “You can stop playing your games with me, Syb’l. I figured you out.”
Syb’l said, “You are better at this than I thought.”
My house turned into the dusty surroundings of Tatoonie. Suddenly, a boulder flew at me, but I closed my eyes because I knew it was only in my head.
“Want to know a secret?” Syb’l asked.
“What is your secret, Syb’l?”
“Mind witches are more powerful than you think. Is this fake?”
Another boulder slammed down on the sandy ground. I touched it. It felt real.
“She must be manipulating my nerves, also,” I thought.
“If you can do that, I give up,” I said.
Syb’l looked surprised. My plan was working. I did flash of my fingers and said, “You will go to a distant planet to stay.”
She said, dazed, “I will go to a distant planet to stay.”
Yes! My Jedi mind tricks actually worked. I didn’t think they would work.
Finally, I climbed into my starship and blasted into hyperspace to Mir. I went looking for RCG to be in an alliance. Almost immediately I found RCG near a rain forest standing outside the forest staring out at the open nature. (insert alliance stuff here).
A little disappointed that we couldn’t be in an alliance, I then met Ninja Girl who was looking for RCG. They talked for a while, and when RCG left, I talked to Ninja Girl, saying, “(insert alliance talk here).
A little discouraged that neither one wanted to be in an alliance, I met RCG again (insert RCG talk here). . . to be continued
Then I went back to my house, and went into my garage, jumped into my starfighter. R7 was waiting in the starfighter, and then I started it up. R7 was ready to fly. But there was one problem. In Mir, there was not a good place that was open enough to fly a space, except the Hills of Mir. I knew this, so set my craft to hover, and zoomed off to the hills of Mir. Then , I noticed Lady Raven Claw Gurl was staring off into nature, just noticing me. She stared at my ship, wondering what it was. I figured she had never seen a spacecraft before., but then I asked her, “Do you know what this is?” She replied, ” No, I do not,” I replied, ” This is a spacecraft, and I am visiting my home planet. To say it in your day and understanding, this is like a horse that can fly really fast to other ..um.. Do you know what a planet is?” RCG replied, super irritated,” I know what a planet is and I know what a spacecraft is!!” ” Well, I will being going to my planet now,my home,” RCG snapped, ” Like you have a home to go to!!” I felt hurt in the stomach, a deep hurt, But I just climbed into the spacecraft, ready to zoom into hyperspace to get to my planet. Suddenly RCG blurted out, ” It’s a dangerous world out there!!”
” Like I haven’t figured that out yet?”
“I could describe the entire universe from the back of my hand!!”
“Then describe my home planet right now!!”
“Describe it? Don’t get worked out about it, I mean seriously? Just take my hand.”
Grant had his suspicions about Lady RCG , but I grabbed the hand. It felt warm, but as soon as he did, the world around him disappeared, and then I realized I was standing out in open space, not falling, but staring out into the horizon. All I saw was space, so beautiful .
RCG said,” See your planet. Happy now?
I said, ” All I see is space, so pretty, but I do not see what you are talking about it,”
RCG replied , ” Concentrate, Grant. See your planet now? See it’s ring, and it’s resemblance to Saturn?”
Grant blinked, but could not see the planet.
” I’m sorry RCG, but I cannot see a thing but space?”
“Forgive me for this, but..” RCG slapped me in the face, with her wonderful warm hands. Even though it was supposed to make me see the planet, I could see nothing.
“I cannot see a single thing , even though you just smacked me in the face,”
” Oh, so you think you are hidden from the ..”
