    The Diary Challenge monthly mini-challenge is LOVE. So here is my answer to that challenge. Thanks everybody for reading. I am probably going to slow down in posting since I am now caught up with my fic.

    Entry 33. Pinnacle Base

    Kira came to my room late last night. She said she had trouble sleeping and noticed the light on in my room. She said she was going to make some dessert treats and wanted to know if I wanted to assist her. Of course I wanted to help, she?s combining my two favorite things: being around her and eating.

    She made up some melted chocolate and took out various berries and stirred them into some type of sugar substance. I am not sure what the ingredients were; I was paying much more attention to the cook?s luscious lips, than what those lips were actually saying to me at the time.

    She sits next to me and dips one razzleberry into the chocolate and holds it out to me?as if she wants to put it in my mouth. I am pretty sure I?m shaking at this point. I allow her to put the chocolate covered berry into my mouth. I remember her fingers brushing against my lips and I shivered at the contact. I was really glad I was wearing a baggy flight suit because my body started misbehaving BIG time.

    I bit down on the berry and it was absolutely amazing. I don?t know what she did to the fruit, but it was like an explosion of flavor in my mouth. I closed my eyes and savor the taste. The next thing I know, her lips are on mine. My eyes fly open and I froze out of shock. She pulled away and gave me a questioning look. I think she was worried that I didn?t like her kiss. FRACK! There?s nothing farther from the truth! Finally my brain engages and a wide grin spreads across my face as I pulled her back to me and returned the kiss.

    My first kiss?it was sweet?literally. I can still taste the berry and chocolate on my lips. When we break apart we look at each other expectantly. I think if I grabbed her up in my arms and brought her to my room we could have made passionate love right then and there. But this is all too new and I guess I am too much of a gentleman like Skywalker.

    I pick up another berry and ask her if she would like one. She says yes, so I hold it out to her and place it on her tongue. I then follow through with a kiss. She tastes so sweet.

    Dawwwww! He is Skywalker's clone - from his gentleman-ness to his 'misbehaving' body.

    Entry 34. Pinnacle Base


    The next day during lunch Mara comes into the dining hall. I was done eating, but was waiting for Kira to finish working. She had volunteered to help the cooks. Mara sees me and a sly grin crosses her face as she comes up to my table and sits down next to me. I brace myself for the teasing. She knows I like Kira and now it?s payback time. Right about now I wish I never annoyed Mara about her and Luke?s budding romance.

    ?So, Mark,? she said to me. ?I see things are getting serious with you and Kira.?

    I agreed. There?s no use trying to lie. I thought she was going to start ribbing me, but her expression becomes serious and she says, ?Do you want to talk to me or Luke?do you need information about?you know.?

    I blush bright red as I realize my pseudo-mom/sister is asking me if I need ?the talk?. For Force-sake, I?m not a 12-year-old boy! I told her, ?No, Chin gave me some advice on the subject.?

    She then groans and tells me Chin is not the man to go to for relationship guidance. I had to smile. She?s right, I am pretty sure some of the things Chin suggested would earn me a slap across the face.

    ?Mara if you are talking about repress meds,? I continued, completely mortified that we were actually having this conversation, ?Aves and Chin gave me that talk already. If you are referring to the mechanics involved?then that is one conversation I definitely don?t want to have with my sister?or her boyfriend!?

    Mara laughed and then gets up and grabs enough food for her and Luke and takes off. I supposed they are going to eat in the room and then...well, I guess you can say make love, but I call it making a disturbance in the Force?something I would rather not sense. I have Nibbles in my room now so I can get some sleep at night.

    Yeah.... that would be awkward....

    My baby brother is also Mark, and he loved to kick the door to my room open and scream something like "you perverted aliens!" for no apparent reason when I was there with my boyfriend. I am still waiting for some sweet revenge. Hehehehe... Can't wait to see how will the "Kira situation" develop. BTW, did you know that "kira" in Japanese means "killer"?

    No, I didn't, but what a coincidence that was my nickname when I was in the Army. Maybe I was subconsciously placing myself in as Mark's love interest.

    LOL at Mara trying to give Mark 'the talk'.

    Do you thiey include the basics of biology and reproduction in a clone's flash-training?

    He's a Skywalker. He'll know what to do when the time comes. [face_mischief] But poor thing. No one wants 'the talk' from their parents. [face_laugh][face_laugh]

    Thanks everybody for reading. Mark does have detailed flash training that includes biology. I am sure he will do fine when the time comes. Mara just wasn't sure what knowledge Mark has...so she just wants to be helpful.

    Entry 35. Pinnacle Base

    Han and Leia left for New Alderaan to be with their twins and to prepare for the upcoming birth of their new baby. Kira really wants to go to Coruscant, but the rebels are still fighting skirmishes, so she has to wait to go home.

    I really want her to see her family, but at the same time I want to spend every possible second with her. I know I am being selfish. She has her mother, father and two brothers on the planet. They haven?t seen her since Palpatine had her abducted?they probably think she?s dead. We tried to comm them, but communication towers are down everywhere. She?s sick to her stomach. When she was on Byss she didn?t know about the fighting on Coruscant. She thought her family was safe. Now she has to wait to see if they survived.

    I told her as soon as the higher-ups give the okay we?ll go down there and I will find her family no matter what. That cheers her up and she hugs me and gives me a lingering kiss. She runs her fingers through my hair and calls me her big red protector. Stang, that is the worst nickname?ever! I sound like a colorful rain slicker.

    Personally, I really don?t care what she calls me as long as she keeps calling.

    Big Red Protector sounds... hum... interesting. But nice progress in their relationship - methinks things are going to get really cozy between those two real soon. :D

    Thanks everybody for reading. Sorry that I have been away for a while. The only electronic device working at my house for the last few days was my cell phone. We had a blizzard take down a bunch of electrical poles and over 200,000 people were out of power. I probably will go a week without power because I literally live out in the middle of nowhere and I am probably on the bottom of the power companies priority list.

    So thanks to everybody who is reading this diary. I am sort of bummed out that Second to None is done. I really liked writing about the characters. Maybe I should do a sequel. LOL!

    Entry 36. Deep Space.

    We finally received the okay to return to Coruscant. It is a long flight. Pinnacle Base orbits the planet Da Soocha which is located in the Outer Rim of the galaxy. The Wild Karrde crew was hired to transport personnel and cargo to Coruscant. The long flight allows me and Kira time to get to know each other better. I really enjoy her company. She has a great sense of humor and she?s a wonderful conversationalist?which is good because I don?t have any childhood reminisces to relate to her.

    I really like her...and I think I might be falling in love. When I am around her I get this fluttering sensation in my stomach and all I want to do is be with her. So far we have only kissed. I think she wants more. Hell, I want more...but I am not going down that path until I've told her the truth about what I am. I just can't bring myself to tell her, though. Right now she probably thinks I am the ultimate gentleman, but I'm really the ultimate coward. I am scared of her reaction to the news...and I?m fearful of her rejection. I know I will eventually have to tell her, but I just want to extend out this courtship as long as possible. I just want a little more time with her.

    Entry 37. Coruscant

    When we get to Coruscant, Mara and Luke decided to check out Imperial City to see if anything remains of the palace. Chin flies Kira and me down to the planet?s surface in a separate shuttle. Her family home is about fifty kilometers from where the fighting was the heaviest, so we are hopeful of finding them alive.

    We locate a functional hanger bay walking distance from her home. Chin said he wants to stay with the shuttle because scavengers are still a problem on the planet. I am heavily armed with sidearm and blaster rifle. Nobody is going to hurt Kira on my watch. We walk to her family home with little problem. A few teenage hooligans gave us a predatory look, but quickly decided to mug somebody else. We get to the home and she buzzes the door indicator. We hear movement on the other side of the door. They must have checked the external camera monitor to see who was outside because suddenly I hear a woman give out a scream of joy. The door slides open and Kira is practically bowled over by a woman who has to be her mother. They look so much alike it?s uncanny. An older man comes to the door to see what the commotion is about. He starts crying when he sees Kira and quickly grabs her up in a big hug. I ask Kira if we can bring this inside. We are attracting attention and I can?t really tell the good guys from the bad guys.

    We go in and Kira introduces me to her parents. They see my weapons and gave me a wary look. Kira tells them about her abduction and how I killed Emperor Palpatine and saved her. That impressed the folks a bit. But then she tells them I?m a Jedi Knight working with Luke Skywalker. Wow, that got a big response. The father is slapping my shoulder and he tells me the Jedi Knights of the Old Republic were his boyhood heroes.

    The problem is, I?m not a Jedi Knight. I never told Kira I was a Jedi Knight. I guess she assumed all Force-users working with Luke were Knights. Her parents are so thrilled and impressed that I don?t tell them I?m just a smuggler.

    Maybe Jedi training wouldn?t be so bad after all?but I am def

    Sweet reunion with Kira's parents! [face_love] And Mark's wrong; he is not a coward, and he is the ultimate gentleman. Chin didn't ruin him completely!;)

    *inncoently whispers* And, a sequel to Second to None would be so cool![face_whistling]

    Loved the reunion :D

    I'm really curious to see Kira's reaction to Mark's past, or lack there of.
