This happens 2 months before Tally's operation. She met Shay and they have been to the Ruins already. I used people from Rogue Squadron to fill Toru. They're from Original (Pre-Endor), Post-Endor, Reformation, and Yuuzhan Vong War and beyond.
This place is scary, Tally thought. Her and Shay were walking through the rusty ruins.
"I feel liked someone's following us." Shay whispered. She turned around and screamed.
"What?! What happened?!" Tally yelled. She panicked, but then say that Shay was laughing at her.
"The look on your face... but really, I thought I heard someone behind us."
They walked through the ruins for a while. They came to a circle of houses surrounding a tree. The ground was covered in smooth stones.
"Really, I swear someone is following us." Shay whispered.
"Why is this place not as old as the other parts?" Tally asked.
And then, out of nowhere, a boy jumped down from a building and landed in front of them. Shay jumped backwards and pulled Tally down with her.
"Who are you, and what are you doing in the ruins?" The boy asked.
"I could ask you the same thing." Shay retorted.
"I'm Luke, and I'm here because I live here."
"I'm Shay, and this is Tally. We're just having an adventure."
"The last 'friendly' person who said that ended up dead because they were actually a Special Circumstances agent trying to bring me back. And I will never, ever, go back."
Tally finally found her voice.
"Why is this place newer looking than the rest of the ruins? And why are you here?" Tally asked.
"Because this is Toru."
"What's that mean?" Shay asked.
"Town of runaway uglies."
Toru was had been empty looking when they found it, but people started coming out after that.
"So, everyone who lives here is an ugly who runs away before the operation. The new people have to live in that one house for a month when they come here. We have a school, too. T.A.O.L. I couldn't come up with anything better." Luke was explaining everything to them.
"Well, are you going to introduce us to everybody or what?" Shay asked.
"This is my sister Leia, her boyfriend Han, Anakin, Padme, Wedge, Hobbie, Tycho, Shira, Wes, Dack, Dash, Zev, Pash, Corran, Jacen, Jiana, Gavin, and Derek. And Bone."
"Bone?" Tally asked.
"Leia, where's Bone?" Luke yelled.
"By the fields, I think."
A big, bone white Great Dane came running up to Luke. He knelled down and was talking to it until Leia yelled at him to stop talking to the dog.
"This is Bone. I found him when I was running away." Luke said proudly.
They left an hour later. When they got back, it was dark out. They went to they're separate dorms and went to bed.
