Sorry about being so slow about posting. I've had a ton of things to juggle and I was away at camp this week. Anyway, here's the next chapter. :D Thank you to KatiaSwift and E for Exotic for reviewing.


After I finished the cleanup after dinner I settled down in the living room with my pile of books that we hoped would pertain to the Clone Wars. The first one was a snooze-fest... definitely not worth my time. The second recounted a battle between Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and General Grievous. Interesting, but not what I was looking for. I still marked it for Jackson, who would analyze the descriptions of the moves and recreate the style. The third was worse than the first. By this point dad and mom had come into the room and were talking. They stopped for a few moments and dad looked over at me and my pile of books.

"Honey, is Kayleen alright? I don't think I've ever seen her this quiet and still," Dad asked. I sent a glare his way to let him know I heard his comment and went back to reading my book. Mom replied but I wasn't aware of what she said. By the fifth book, I was tired of reading pointless facts. I decided that now would be a good time to start reading grandmom's diary. I gathered up my books and headed to my room; where I did all my important reading. I turned on the light and laid across my bed and began reading.

Day 1 of diary.

Hi, I'm Aayla Secura. I'm 6 years old and I'm starting this diary to keep track of what importent things happen in my life. I have a freind named Obiwan kenobi and another freind named Bant eerin. She's nice. We trained with Master yoda today then the masters took us to the room of a thosand fountans to swim. I had fun!

Day 2 of diary.

We swum again today. Bant is good at swumming. Obiwan is good too but Im faster than him.

Day 3 of diary.

I saw Quin again today. He saved me when I was little. He's a padawan. i want to be like him when I grow up. I asked master AliAlann how to speel padawan.

Several of the pages continued this way. I read from age 6 to age 9 in a few hours. She wasn't much of a writer. However, after a while, the days lengthened and she began writing more in her diary.

Day 35 of diary.

I was looking back over my diary and it's obvious I couldn't spell. Obi-Wan has a master now. He is the apprentice of Master Qui-Gon Jinn. Bant is also a padawan. Knight Tahl is her Master. I hope I get a Master soon. Otherwise I'll be shipped off to Agricorps. I'm almost twelve years of age. Well, I have to go to class now. Lightsaber training. It's my favorite class. I'll be back soon.

I looked at the clock on my wall and saw that it was almost twelve midnight. I set Grandmom's diary on the floor near my bed and crawled under the covers. I'd read more when I had time.
