    I don't have time for this right now, but if things haven't moved around mid-June and Mr P and JG agree, I might give a try at continuing the story.

    I'm leaving on vacation for a month tomorrow, but I do want to continue with this story. This coming schoolyear is my senior year, so I'll probably have bunches of time doing nothing that I could use to start this story up again. :)

    I'm looking forward to seeing this continue, as well. As, as has already been offered, let me know if you ever need help. (You may find that your senior year is not so relaxing as you imagine...)

    Time to resurrect this here story. I'm kinda iffy about this post but here goes a lot.
    **************************

    The group found that it was further than they had originally thought. The ground was rising steeply still, and was becoming more and more rocky. The light grew broader as they ran on, soon they saw that there was a rock-wall before them: the side of a hill, or the abrupt end of some long root thrust out by the distant mountains. There were no trees growing on it, and the sun was falling full on its stony face. The twigs of the trees at its foot were stretched out stiff and still, almost as if it were reaching out to the warmth. But it was probably just her imagination thought Padmé. Pippin looked up at Padmé to find her gaze fixed on what seemed to be the same thing.

    ?Do you see it too, Padmé?? Inquired Pippin.

    ?Yes,? replied Padmé.

    ?What do you make of it??

    ?I don?t know.?

    Where all had looked so shabby and grey before, the wood now gleamed with rich browns, and with smooth black-greys of bark like polished leather. The boles of the trees glowed with a soft green like young grass. It reminded Padmé of Naboo in early spring.

    In the face of the stony wall there was something that resembled closely to a flight of stairs; yet it was natural looking. It was uneven and rough, made by the weathering and splitting of the rock. But before Padmé was finished observing all that there was to see she was interrupted by Merry?s joy filled voice saying, ?I?m going up it for a breath of air and a sight of the land.? Padmé chuckled at the sight of Merry climbing and scrambling up the rock as the stair, if that?s what it was, seemed as if it was made for someone for bigger feet and longer legs.

    ?I don?t know about you Padmé, but I?m going up as well,? announced Pippin.

    ?Well then I?ll just have to,? she paused in her sentence and thought, ?I?m just going to have to race you to the top.?

    Pippin hadn?t even waited for Padmé to finish the sentence at the word race Pippin took off for the stairs. Padmé let out a brief laugh and then followed suit running as fast as she could towards the stairs. The pains and tiredness that Pippin and Padmé had felt before left them completely as they scrambled up the stairs.

    ?Just what in the world are you two doing?? Asked Merry as the two flew by laughing and giggling at themselves.

    ?It?s a race,? cried Pippin.

    Merry perked up at the sound of the word race, ?Oh, a race you say. To where??

    ?The top,? answered Padmé.

    Merry lunged at the next stair climbing as fast as he could try to catch up to the two whom were already two stairs ahead. Padmé and Pippin let out a laugh at the sight, which caused Merry to start giggling. Pippin emerged at the top of the hill first closely followed by Merry and then finally Padmé. The group emerged almost on top of an old stump that had but two bent branches left. It looked like a gnarled old man standing there blinking in the morning-light. But other than the stump there was little up on the shelf under a cliff. The group was exasperated as their lungs were drawing in deep breaths only to have the released by laughter.

    As their laughter began to die down the group turned around to look eastward. They saw that they had only traveled three or for miles into the forest itself. There were columns of tree heads that reminded Padmé of the columns of battle droids that belonged to the Trade Federation that occupied Padmé?s home. But now was not the time for dwelling on such things. Near the fringe of the forest tall plumes of black smoke wafted in the sky wavering and floating in their direction.

    ?The wind is changing,? stated Merry. ?It?s turned east again. It feels cool up here, yet refreshing after the race.?

    ?Yes,? said Pippin; ?I?m afraid this is only a passing gleam, and it will all go grey again. So said. But the breeze does feel refreshing.?

    ?What a pity I must say, this old forest looked so different in the sunlight. I almost felt like I liked the place,? said Padmé as the s

    *Stares in disbelief.*
    A Post?
    We Got a Post?
    One thing- I don't remember that scene in the book- unless it was when Merry and Pippin thought that the forest looked nicer in the sunlight.
    Nice Job.

    *Screams* WE GOT A POST!!!
