Anakin's Home

"Hey there you two." I greeted my little brother and uncle as they appeared. I pulled each one into a hug before sitting down. "So, how was your trip?" Uncle Luke scowled jokingly at me. "You know that we're not supposed to talk about stuff like that, Jaina. However, you might like to know that Anakin managed to get us into a fight before we had even been on the planet for ten minutes."
"It wasn't my fault!" Huffed Anakin, before smiling broadly. "It worked though, didn't it? We got what we needed."
Uncle Luke nodded, "Yes, but you have to learn that there are other ways of doing things rather than physical means Anakin."
I nodded solemnly, "He's right you know, Ani. You should spend more time with Jacen meditating." I tried to conceal the laughter that was trying to escape my lips at the look on his face at those words. I glanced at Uncle Luke and saw that he was trying not to smile as well.
"As if! I'd much rather spend my time practicing my saber skills." He protested.
"How are you supposed to be at one with the Force if all you do is use your lightsaber?" Asked Uncle Luke. "You need to tune your mind and body to the Force before you can truly use a lightsaber."
"That's why Jacen always kicks your sorry behind in duels Anakin." I stated.
That did it, Anakin stood up. "If that's all you have to say to me, then I think I'll go get some sleep. If it won't stop me being a Jedi that is!"
I couldn't hold back my laughter any longer and as soon as I started Uncle Luke did too. Anakin took one look at us and turned on his heel.
Uncle Luke and I just sat there unable to move, anytime we thought we could stop we looked at each other and started again.

Suddenly Anakin came flying back into the room followed by a small chicken-like creature. "Jaina! What is this thing?" He cried as he tried to get away from it. Inbetween hicups of laughter I manged to say, "That's Jacen's newest pet. It's name is Ned, I think he likes you." And decended into gales of laughter as I watched Ned chase Anakin around the room.

Foiled Again!

Dark Jedi Kriss jumped through a wormhole and shoved this tag into my hands before being sucked back in shouting something about Vader and Anakin... Bizzare...

1. You have to post these rules before you give the facts.

2. You must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had.

3. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Okay so I'm gonna cheat and just use my real name. Here goes!

Not full of myself... lol
Amazing pilot

Okay, so that's that done with, so I tag...

Bwa ha! Suckers! :P

Here we go again...

3-PO came running, well, shuffling really, into my room. “Mistress Jaina, your brother says to come quick.”
I swung my legs off my bed and set the book that I had been reading down (Build Your Own Engine) “Which brother?” I asked.
“Why Jacen of course, as Anakin is not due back until Thursday.”
I’d forgotten, Anakin and Uncle Luke were off on a mission. “Right where is he? 3-PO?”
“Down in the forest clearing.”

When I arrived down there Jacen was sitting crossed-legged holding something small… small and featherly.
“Oh no! Not again. No way!”
“Please Jaina, he needs me!”
I took a step back, “No way! Remember what happened last time? I do and it wasn’t pretty.”
“Please, this won’t be like last time. I promise.”
Pretty please?
I glowered at him, “Get out of my head Solo.”
“I’m sorry. Look how cute he is Jaina. How can you say no?”
I frowned, “Have you forgotten about Scooter? What’s he gonna think about this?” Scooter chose that moment to very unhelpfully poke his head out of Jacen’s top pocket. Jacen beamed, “Scooter loves him!”
I placed my hand on my hip and glared at his pet mouse. “What about it’s family? You can’t steal him, oh brother of mine!”
Jacen frowned, “His mother was…” eaten “So he doesn’t have anyone to look after him. Please Jaina?”
He knew he had me there. Even I couldn’t say no to that. I turned on my heal and shouted over my shoulder, “If anything goes wrong I had nothing to do with this? Okay? Nothing!”
A few hours later I returned carrying a cage that I had made out of scrap metal, complete with a side and top door plus a handle for carrying it. Jacen beamed at me, “Thanks sis!” He opened the top door and gently tipped his new pet in. I watched him pick up the cage and start walking back. It looked like the Solo’s had gained a new family member. A little baby Nuna.
