    OH I'm soo sorry Rani. DUH big red truck.
    I'm telling you my brain is just totally spazed out. Maybe I should just stay out of here until after school huh? Are you SURE you don't want me to delete it. You wrote yours first and believe me, I don't care if you want me to delete mine. Really I don't.
    Hey don't bother changing yours. I'll edit mine. I just had an idea of who I can switch in instead of Sifa.

    [See I can't even type a post without messing up.]

    Hehehe. Lady Bingle, watch out--the word "catfight" is springing to my lips! She sounds like just the type that would super-tick off my perfect angel, Jai. (LOL).
    *****

    Jai twitched as the transport touched down. It was sleek and trim, obviously top of the line. She could feel a tantalizingly familiar presence aboard, but couldn't quite identify it. Yoda had declined coming with her, muttering something about the Council meeting with her visitor later.

    A muffled clank drew Jai's attention back to the ship as its boarding ramp lowered and someone walked down in a dignified manner.

    Her eyes studied the tan nerfhide boots, Jai's brain barely acknowledging the crest stamped into the nerf-leather. Then, her eyes traveled up to long legs clad in deep blue trousers, and onto the tawny shirt, with billowing sleeves and a black lace-up collar. His feautures where noble, and calm, and handsome, and as cold as ice--until you saw the laughing warmth in his dark gray eyes. The slight wind ruffled his wavy black hair, and for the first time since Saean stepped off the transport, Jai smiled.

    He'd been studying her, too. There was a maturity in her green eyes that hadn't been present when he last saw her, and she was much taller--almost to his shoulder. Saean sighed at the loss of the child she had been, but he welcomed with open arms the young woman his sister had become.

    Okay, I think I had better get Lady Pill settled in...

    ****************

    Caroline surveyed Master Gallia's quarters with a critical eye and sighed.

    "Well, I suppose it will do. I see I must accustom myself to hardship if I am to endure this healthy experience as Father puts it," Caroline said to herself.

    With the air of a martyr resigned to her fate, Caroline pressed her hand to her forehead and sunk into the nearest chair (but not before she swiped it with a handkerchief of course). At that moment, Master Gallia entered and eyed her charge wearily.

    "Has my luggage been taken care of?" Caroline asked faintly without moving from her reclining position in the chair.

    With a roll of her eyes, the Jedi Master replied, "I think most of it will be kept in storage for the time being."

    Caroline sighed in exasperation. "I will have it brought up momentarily. As for now, I do believe some refreshments are in order. The journey here was most tiresome!"

    "Actually, I am going to take this time to familiarize you with your class schedule. You may have a little difficulty in some classes because we are in the middle of the term, but the instructors are prepared to make some allowances for your situation," she handed her two data pads. "One of the data pads contains the Temple's regulations. I suggest you look over it now. Your first class will begin shortly."

    Caroline glanced at one data pad, tossed it aside, and studied the other. After a few seconds, her indolent mood was instantly broken. She jumped from the chair with a cry of dismay.

    "What is this? WHAT is this?! Starfighter repairs? LIGHTSABER PRACTICE??!!?? Do I really look like one of those gritty brutes that are scurrying about this....this...NERF PIN? The only tolerable class I have is High Alderaanian!" Caroline sniffled pitifully. "There has been a grievous mistake. I am going to contact my father immediately."

    "That will not be necessary. He is very much aware of what you're in for in here. And if you had looked at the other data pad, you would have learned that it is required of you to pay the utmost respect to Jedi Council members. If you had, you may have avoided the punishment I am going to give you now."

    "Punishment?" Caroline replied weakly.

    "I believe there are some students assigned to clean-up duty in the cafeteria. You will join them everyday for the rest of the week," Master Gallia said sternly.

    Caroline paled dramatically and her mouth dropped open, but her well spoiled temper soon surfaced, setting her eyes ablaze and reddening her cheeks.

    "I will NOT! You will leave this room NOW! If you do not, I will most assuredly have a nervous fit!!!"

    Master Gallia undauntedly stood her ground and favored Caroline with a look that would have terrified anyone with the sense of a bantha. Caroline, however, stomped to her bedroom and slammed the door.

    ****************

    Ugh, I'm already digusted with my own character! Have fun with her in the cafeteria, Jane!

    Life was back to normal at the Jedi Temple on this day after the Day After, and at breakfast time, the cafeteria was full. Jane carried her tray over to the table which she and her friends usually occupied, and was cheered to see Garen and not Ane sitting across from the only vacant space.

    "Hi, guys,"she said as she slid into the chair.

    There were a few scattered greetings, and the conversation opened up to include her. When the meal was over, Garen spoke for the first time."Mind if I walk with you to your first class, Jane?"

    "I'll walk with you to yours,"Jane volunteered as they put their trays away."I should be having Starfighter Piloting, but Master Arieh has divided us up into groups to go flying around Coruscant in the mornings, and it's not my turn to-day. So I've got free time until History."

    "Lucky you! What are you going to do?"

    "Laundry,"Jane grimaced, and Garen smiled. They exited the cafeteria in silence, and then he said,"Obi-Wan told me that you broke up with Ane."

    "Yeah,"Jane sighed."We had a fight at the dance, and I'll bet he doesn't want to see me anymore than I want to see him."

    "So, um, would you be my partner in dance class to-day?"Garen asked.

    "Thanks, I'd like that."

    *****

    Jane just had time to return the clean laundry to the apartment before she had to race to History. Coming into the room, she almost bumped into a tall, blonde girl who was glancing around disdainfully. Belatedly realising that Master Adi Gallia was also present, Jane bowed, and began to sidle towards her usual seat.

    The girl's eyes lighted on her and in a loud, condescending voice, she said,"When the Supreme Chancellor dined with us recently, he told us the most amusing story about a Jedi Padawan with a green stripe in her hair. Apparantly the girl turned around and hit him over the head with a dirty plate for no obvious reason, and then actually exclaimed 'What in the name of the Chancellor's underwear do you think you're doing!'"

    She paused, and Jane felt her cheeks flame with embarrassment as some of the students began to titter.

    "He almost had the little skunkhead arrested, of course, although it turned out that one of his aides had pinched her bottom, and she'd thought the Chancellor himself had given her the honour,"the girl continued."So naturally he had to release her into the care of her Master."

    Jane realised with horror that Master Adi Gallia was looking at her with a distinctly curious expression on her face, and then the Councilmember said sternly,"Caroline, that is quite enough. I suggest you find a seat and take it. Mistress Goffinet has just arrived, and she prefers to teach without interruptions."

    "You are correct, Master Gallia,"came the answer as Mistress Goffinet entered the room."Is this the new exchange student?"

    "Caroline Bingle."

    "Lady Caroline,"said the girl, seating herself with a flounce.

    "Student Bingle,"Mistress Goffinet corrected her, sweeping by and taking up position behind the desk."All right, class, we were up to page one hundred and thirty four, the collapse of the Alliance of Five Worlds."

    Jane had to remind herself forcefully that a Jedi did not seek revenge, and that the Council would not be inclined to grant her permission to stay on at the Temple if she got into much more trouble, especially with a new exchange student. The Council! Oh, Sith, Master Adi Gallia had now heard that story of Jane hitting the Chancellor! Was that going to affect her chances of being allowed to stay?

    Worried, Jane twisted a tuft of hair around her finger and tried in vain to concentrate on the lesson.

    K'vel rose early and spent the extra time mediating in preparation for the day. He knew that he would need all the help he needed keeping up with Insei today. If he could keep the new student out of trouble for a single day the rest would follow on momentum, or at least, that was the theory. He had a vague suspicion that reality would actually turn out far differently, but he could hope, couldn't he?

    K'vel escorted Insei to breakfast and they sat just down the table from Obi-wan and his group. Pleasant nods were exchanged all around, but K'vel remained quiet through the meal, feeling unaccountably shy once again. He had to remind himself to keep his shields down so that he could get a clear reading on Insei. He'd spent so long with them up, that he had to actively remember to leave them down.

    After breakfast, K'vel led Insei to his first class and introduced Katsuo to his new teacher.

    ((Insei, I'll let you choose your class schedule))

    Then, he settled down to wait outside the clasroom to wait for the boy. More meditation couldn't hurt.

    JediFinrod, let me know if something seems wrong about Caroline. I can forsee her and Ieron having many problems. . . *grins evilly again* Oh, and thanks for giving me something to pull me out of writer's block!

    Ieron sat patiently in the arena, waiting for saber class to start. Her other classes hadn?t been to difficult, but everything still seemed to echo about the dance. All of the Jedi moved a little slower. The dusty-haired padawan had to grin, wishing she had seen what had caused this disturbance in the Temple schedule. She planned to get the story from someone.

    Most of the other students began to filter in, joking with each other and eventually sitting on the floor like Ieron was. Jane walked in with Garen and they seemed rather involved in a conversation. Ane slunk in a few moments later and sat down dejectedly by her, although he didn?t say anything. She shot him a questioning look, but didn?t ask. If Ane wanted to bring it up, he would in his own good time.

    Mace Windu appeared in the arena and stood with his fingers bridged in front of him. He seemed to consider for a moment, then addressed the class. ?As some of you might now, Knight Maol was planning to take over the instruction of this class. Unfortunately, there have been some . . . complications with this, and a few other things, so I will continue to be your instructor for the time being.? Ieron felt her cheeks flush slightly and ducked her head a little before realizing what she was doing. No one was paying any attention to her, but Ieron felt like Master Windu had screamed her name, told the entire class the allegations against Ken-Biu.

    A tall girl suddenly appeared in the room, obviously demanding attention. ?I am sorry I late,? she declared in a loud, whining voice to Mace Windu, who just look slightly startled and mildly bemused. A grin spread across his face.

    ?So, are you Adi Gallia?s exchange student?? he inquired. He checked a data pad and then nodded. ?Ah, here you are, Caroline Bingle.?

    ?Lady Caroline,? she stressed, annoyance clear in her voice. Ieron frowned in annoyance. People who did things for the mere attention drove her up the wall. ?And I believe there?s a mistake, I shouldn?t be in this class.? The disgust was clear on her face.

    Mace laughed. ?No mistake, Caroline,? he replied poignantly, stressing the unsaid title, ?you?re in this class and you?ll work like the rest of the students.? Dark fury crossed her face, but the dark-skinned Master ignored it and gestured for her to sit down with the rest of padawans. With a livid sigh, she flounced to the floor, looking ready to claw someone?s eyes out. I pity the poor student who has to spar with her, Ieron thought to herself.

    ?All right, today we?ll be working with more technique with the obstacles. I?ll pair you off, and you?ll do some warm-ups with your partner. Then, nearer to the end of the class, we?ll come back together and watch each group spar.? He checked his list. ?Counc, Bingle . . . .? Ieron glanced at him, a frown on her face. This was not going to be fun.

    More to come . . .

    Ieron walked over to their designated warm-up area. She rolled her shoulders to loosen them and watched her opponent, sizing her up. Caroline walked leisurely over to where Ieron was standing. They watched each other for a moment.

    ?Hi, my name is Ieron,? the padawan said finally.

    Caroline sniffed disdainfully. ?Ieron? Ieron Counc? I?m to suffer through this miserable class, and with a civilian? What royalty must put up with,? she added, a martyr?s tone to her voice. Ieron?s eyebrows shot down, and she cast the sufferer a dark look.

    ?Whatever,? she commented, then settled onto the floor and began to stretch out her legs and lower back. Caroline studied her nails, inspecting them for a moment, then sniffed again.

    ?What ever are you doing?? she asked condescendingly.

    Ieron began to lose her patience. ?I?m warming up, like Master Windu suggested.?

    ?Physical exertion is not something that should be expected of me,? she replied indignantly. Ieron sprung to her feet, bouncing on the balls of them, making sure she was limber enough.

    ?Are you ready?? she finally asked, unclipping her saber from her belt. Ieron activated it, and the dark blue blade popped up with a comforting snap-hiss. Caroline just stood there, looking appalled. Remembering her scrubbing sessions, with two weeks left to go, Ieron decided to be a little less harsh, despite the incredible annoyance she was feeling towards the other girl. ?You need to get a saber from Master Windu.?

    ?I will do no such thing,? came the hot reply. Ieron widened her eyes in surprise but held her tongue.

    ?Ieron and Caroline, we?re going to start sparring now,? Mace Windu called across the arena. ?Everyone else, come back over here and settle in to observe the matches.? Ieron gestured for Caroline to lead the way. With a contemptuous snort and a quick turn, she did so with a haughty saunter. With a sigh, Ieron followed, deactivated her saber. Mace Windu gave the exchange student a confused look. ?Where?s your lightsaber??

    ?No one gave me one,? she replied hesitantly. Ieron raised one eyebrow. Did she expect to be waited on hand-and-foot?

    ?Here,? he replied, unclipping his own saber and tossing it to her. She caught it with a start, fumbling and nearly dropping it on the floor. Ieron sighed. This is going to be horrible.

    Ieron took a defensive position and waited for Caroline to move. Caroline simply looked at the saber, an overconfident look that told the padawan she had no idea how to activate it. A few titters rippled across the class, stifled by a stern look from Master Windu. After inspecting it, Caroline finally managed to get the green blade to appear. Ieron activated hers again and waited.

    Caroline didn?t make a move. She merely stared at Ieron contemptuously. After a moment, Ieron took the offensive and advance on the other. Caroline put her blade up in front of her and carefully countered the easy swing Ieron made at her. Making a quicker movement, the padawan managed to score a hit on her arm, leaving the tunic beneath a darker, ashy color.

    The exchange student grunted in pain and glared at Ieron. Then, she lunged at Ieron. Ieron neatly side-stepped, leaping onto a nearby block. Caroline stopped herself, then tossed a glare at Mace Windu. ?Go after her,? he urged. ?That?s the idea of these exercises.?

    Caroline followed, pausing at the bottom of the block. Ieron flipped over her head, slashing low across the back of Caroline?s legs. Her reflexes improving slightly and grimacing from the pain, she whirled on the padawan and scored a hit on her arm from her flailing saber. Ieron frowned and reached out into the Force, predicting her movements.

    Blocking the next attempt to score a hit, Ieron parried and darted in towards Caroline. Standing at her side, Ieron carefully forced her back and neatly tripped her. With the Lady lying on her back, Ieron brought her saber blade next to her neck. ?Kill point,? Mace Windu intoned. ?Next up . . .?

    Ieron deactivated her saber and offered Caroline a hand. Brushing it aside, Caroli

    Cali and Jane paused from their own spar to across the arena to watch the new student and Ieron fight. She looked at Jane with an almost embarrassed eye. "Did we look that clumsy?"

    "Oh, not you," Jane said, grinning a little. "But I did."

    "Until you janed Qui-Gon," Cali teased, easily parrying Jane's playful lunge. "Oh, did Obi-Wan thank you for your divine influence?"

    "Is that what he called it?"

    "His exact words," Cali said, dancing around her opponent and slashing at Jane's slim hips. The girl leaped away. Cali deepened her voice and added the Obi-Wan's accent that she was so crazy about. "If you see Jane before I do today, Cali, please tell her that I deeply appreciate her divine influence she has had on me in the lightsaber katas."

    Jane giggled and almost missed Cali's advancement. "Did he really?"

    Cali grinned and suddenly vaulted herself in the air, gathering the Force to push her over Jane. The result wasn't as graceful as whom she was imitating.

    Jane let out a cry as Cali collided into her, lightsaber flying out of her hand and deactivating. Cali was able to toss her weapon to the floor before stabbing Jane in the side. They toppled to the floor in a heap.

    "Ow," Jane said dully, catching her breath.

    "I second that," Cali said, her voice muffled against Jane's leg. A moment later, she was being pulled away from the other girl, who was being helped up by Garen. "Oh, my hero," Cali said sarcastically as Obi-Wan helped her up.

    "What did you do?" the Padawan asked, completely baffled.

    "I tried the Kenobi flip," Cali said, rubbing her back. "I guess it's one of those things that novices don't try on their own."

    "You're kidding right?" Garen asked in amusement.

    "Does it look like I was kidding?" Cali asked, nodding to Jane who looked a little dazed. The girl's clothing was rumpled and she was rubbing the back of her head.

    Mace Windu looked at the two exchange students, clearly happy to deal with them than the rich brat currently torturing poor Ieron. "Rushing your skills, Student Angli?" there was a hint of amusement in his tone, but also a stern disapproval.

    "Yes, Master," Cali said, feeling a little ignorant and stupid. "I guess I should have asked for help, right?" Her cheeks colored a bit.

    "That's what the Masters are here for, Angli," Windu said dryly.

    "Yes, Master," Cali repeated. She looked at Jane, who was shying from Garen's concern. "Sorry, Jane. I didn't mean to experiment on you."

    Jane shrugged good-naturedly. "Don't worry about it. It kept me on my toes-- well, not really." A couple Padawans giggled and turned to continue their interuppted sparring.

    Cali picked up her lightsaber turned to Jane, but Obi-Wan stopped her. "Yes, Piggy?"

    He grimaced. "What's this Kenobi flip? And do I really sound like that?"

    Jane and Cali both started laughing and Cali waved him away with her borrowed lightsaber, green blade flashing close to his face. He took the hint and turned back to Garen.

    Jane tossed her head, trying to clear some hair from her eyes. With an impish look, she answered in an accented voice, "Yes, Piggy, I believe you have a divine influence on me!"

    Ohhhh, here's an idea!

    Seeing as how Lady Caroline seems so prim and proper, wouldn't it just suit her to demand one of the boys to be at her beckon call?

    <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Geneva,Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>CAROLINE: *snapping her fingers* You will take me out Friday night.

    OBI-WAN: Excuse me?

    CAROLINE: Didn't you hear me, boy?

    OBI-WAN: *with a wry grin of amusement* Seeing as how you are new here, I'll be kind when I say that not even a Mind Trick could get me to date you. *eying her over* And from the looks of it, I doubt you have the talent to pull even that off!

    How bout it? There's a few couples that would be perfect targets. I think a good b*tch fight between the girls would be wonderful!

    . . . And some angst to shake up the relationship a little (just to make 'em get back even stronger). Whatdya say?

    Hmmm... maybe she'll first go after Insei. But he's repulsed so much that he empties the Z-95 fuel tank on her. Let's see her try to act all prim and proper then!

    Oh, and Jane, could I borrow J.J. for this part in the hangar bay?

    CAT FIGHT!!!! eek.gif
    This girl reminds me of my step-sister *shudder* who is thankfully away at college.

    *************

    "Uh-oh," Cali whispered to Obi-Wan as they hung their lightsabers back on the racks. "Looks like you've been spotted."

    "Another edition to the Kenobi harum," Meri mused with an elbow jibe.

    "Who?" Obi-Wan asked, looking around the large chamber. He caught the mock glare from Cali. "Uh-- I mean, um, oh Sith, I really did it this time didn't I?"

    Cali and Meri giggled at the 'mynock caught in the running lights' look. "So vulnerable, isn't he, Cali?" Meri said.

    "I like 'em that way," Cali said, pinching Obi-Wan's cheek.

    He swatted her away, then looked around. "So. . . who are you talking about?"

    "You only want to know so you can run away, of course," Meri mused.

    "Of course."

    Before Cali or Meri could point the girl out, a posh and whiny voice shrilled clearly beind them. "You mean I have to SHARE?"

    A silent, collective moan ran through the Padawans. Caroline was stamping her feet, glaring at Master Windu, who looked very close to disobeying a Temple rule about anger control.

    "Yes, that is what I said," Windu said stiffly. "You have a locker and there are the showers. The Temple cannot not provide personal showers for every single Jedi in the order."

    Caroline looked ready to rant again when Ane and one of the other Padawans, a Togorian, locked arms in a mock fight. Ane tipped over the Togorian's big hind paws and stumbled, bumping straight into the new student.

    Every being in the room plugged their ears at the shrill shriek that bounced off the cavernous walls of the chamber.

    "That," Cali whispered. "Is who you need to run from."

    "I'm running," Obi-Wan said, only half joking. "But first I think I'll stop by An-Paj's and get a my hearing checked."

    Cali burst into giggles, and was rewarded with a very evil glare from Caroline.

    Oh, Sith!

    LOLOL!!!

    Love the Caroline-torture! I don't no about the boy stuff, though. She's pretty much afraid to go near any of them at the Jedi Temple unless they have a hefty fortune somewhere. (Think mercenary and socially ambitious!)

    This takes place in the evening after classes are over. So if you have a post that happens earlier, keep in mind that this takes place later!

    ***************

    Master Gallia approached her quarters with a feeling of dread. Throughout the day, she had received complaints from every one of Caroline's instructors and many more from Masters who were just annoyed by her. If Lady Pill did not drive her to the dark side by the end of term, she would consider herself extremely fortunate.

    She opened the door and stepped inside.....to find herself in a completely different room! Nothing remotely familiar was to be seen...and nothing was to be seen that wasn't some shade of pink.

    With every intention of committing bloody murder, Master Gallia stormed into Caroline's room. She stopped abruptly in the doorway at the sight of Caroline laying face-down and half-naked on her bed while a particularly muscular man rubbed her back.

    "WHAT IS THIS?!" Master Gallia demanded.

    "Andre, my masseur," Caroline replied simply. "He was so kind to come on such short notice. Please see to it that living quarters are arranged for him at once. I do believe I shall require his services the entirety of my stay."

    "You shall not! Andre, you are dismissed. Leave!" Master Gallia had never felt the need to raise her voice so often in her life, and her throat was quickly becoming irritated.

    "You do not understand!" Caroline protested, her voice becoming whiny. "My muscles get so stiff when I am vexed, and there are multitudes of crude, vexatious people in every one of my classes!"

    "Yes, I am sure there is at least one vexatious person in each of your classes! Andre! OUT!"

    Andre had at least the sense of a bantha and promptly understood the lethal tone in the Jedi Master's voice. With a hasty bow towards Caroline, he made an immediate exit. Master Gallia turned back to Caroline whose features were distorted by an absurd pout.

    "Now tell me," Master Gallia's voice was dangerously low, "what did you do to my home?"

    "I did nothing," Caroline replied matter-of-factly.

    Master Gallia glared fiercely at Caroline until she began to squirm.

    "Oh, I commissioned Raoul to make one or two little changes...just to make this place more inhabitable for me."

    "Raoul?"

    "I have dismissed him and his assistants already. I thought their work was admirable considering the lack of time allowed them. They will return tomorrow, however, and remodel the bathroom."

    Master Gallia was about to engage in a nervous fit of her own when the doorbell rang.

    "Ah, that must be Pierre!" Caroline said happily.

    "Pierre?"

    "The cook. The cafeteria is deplorable. I will not dine there. Oh, do not be anxious. Pierre came highly recommended. Answer the door."

    "Caroline, you will never again assume an authoritative tone with me..."

    "Oh, very well. I will send for a butler as well. Just answer the door this once! Actually, let us begin a list. I will need at least one maid as well, and someone must attend to my wardrobe. I will NOT wear those ghastly tunics again!"

    Master Gallia left Caroline to continue her musings and stormed out of her apartment, nearly knocking Pierre to the ground in the process.

    I will speak to Yoda. NOW!

    If you meant that your post was silly Jedi Finrod then I would have to disagree. I loved it, very amusing (eek I'm sounding like Caroline!) I go to an entire school of Carolines so that was incredably amusing. Except the really 'caroline'ish' girls in my classes are usually dumb as well.

    I'm sorry JKOW I didn't know that America had finals for school at the moment. Australian exams are still a far way a way so I just presumed...anyway it's good to see everyone back again

    No need to apologize Kit. LOL
    It's not your fault I'm having finals. LOL
    This weekend is like the calm before the storm. ONLY because I get to go to my brothers colleg graduation. LOL otherwise I would have to study.

    Agh! My stupid DSL server wouldn't let me on for three days! Good Lord, how behind I am. heh. Anyways, I'm going to introduce Fio to her new Master.

    **************

    Fio returned to her quarters, lead by Master Lien. This time she was very careful to take note of the layout of this place. It was huge!

    "You must be my exchange student," came a strange voice when she entered the apartment. It was a metallic voice, without much inflection, and distorted. She gulped, her active imagination carrying her reason right out the airlock.

    "Yes, sir," she said timidly as the Jedi Master emerged from his bedroom. She looked him over and gave a heroic effort not to look terrified. It didn't work. Her heart plumented to her knees, hammering at its confines all the way down.

    He looked like a monster. One she would have imagined up for a daydreaming adventure. She couldn't see his eyes, which were covered up with some metal apparatus. So was the rest of his face, and the part the showed only made the appearance scarier.

    "What is your name?" If he noticed her terror (how could he not?) he didn't choose to acknowledge it. Neither of them made a move.

    "Darci, sir, Fionualla Darci," she quavered.

    "Well, Fionualla," he said, ennunciating her name perfectly, "I see you've already gotten a bit of a tour. I'll take you around some more later. To the classrooms. And here is a list of your classes."

    She looked it over, forcefully keeping her hands from shaking. Lightsaber practice (oh Sith, I'm going to be humiliated!), Calculus, Starfighter piloting and repairs, Galactic social customs, High Alderaanian, Chemistry, and Creative Writing. Her eyes lit up on that last one.

    "Um, Master Koon?" she inquired almost silently.

    "Yes?"

    "I've already taken Calculus."

    His face didn't change, but his replicated voice took on a bit of unbelief. "Really? I was aware you were not of sufficient grade level."

    "Uh, yes sir, but, well..." she stammered, "I'm homeschooled, and... we don't always go at the same rate as... normal schools."

    His gaze swept over her, as though probing her for falsehood.
    "Hmm. Anything else?"

    "Well, I've already had High Alderaanian, but I could always use the practice."

    A silent nod was all the answer she got then. The Jedi stood and took the datacard.

    "I will go and have this changed. Make yourself at home, you start class tomorrow."

    All she could do was sit, rooted in place. Classes? Real classes, with (shudder) real people? She'd been alone for so long! And lightsaber practice? Sith, what did she know about that?! And she had a master who looked like something out of her nightmares.

    Oh, my gods, what have I gotten myself into?

    &lt;&lt;Don't stress it Kit. I live in America and I had my finals nearly a month ago. Of course, my school doesn't give us a spring break, either. The schedules vary greatly.&gt;&gt;

    T?lor was in thought as she came out of the lightsaber class she was going to as final preparation for the Trials. There had been a new exchange student in the class today, a real snot. Poor Ieron had gotten stuck with her. T?lor had prayed that she wouldn?t have to deal with her. She had dealt with many ?Lady Carolines? on Berchest. The planet attracted its share of the very spoiled. With the stress of her Trials looming over her, T?lor didn?t think she could be diplomatic to such a creature. Luckily she had been paired with Jia. T?lor had enjoyed their sparing, even as tired as she had been after her morning workouts.

    ?Hey T?lor,? Trevor called as he came down the hall.

    ?Hi Trev,? she said, turning to meet him.

    ?Where are you off to next?? he asked.

    ?To get a snack. I?m starving,? she answered, heading towards the cafeteria. Master Dway had me working hard, breakfast wore off a LONG time ago.?

    ?Do you mind company??

    ?No, but I can?t be held responsible if you loose your appetite for the rest of the day,? she said, smiling.

    They sat down with their food a short time later. ?So what?s new in your life?? Trevor asked.

    ?If you mean, did I get caught?yes and no.?

    ?Yes and no? How does that work?

    T?lor stared hard at her plate, not meeting his gaze. ?Gi?den knows but I haven?t been called before the Council?yet. I?m a little worried. Rani and Kit took all of the blame. I?m starting to feel a little?uneasy.? She looked up at Trevor.

    ?And I suppose Gi?den did his Master thing and gave you some line about how he knows you?ll do the right thing.?

    T?lor nodded. ?Problem is, I?m not sure what the right thing is.? Trevor just raised his eyebrow, waiting for her to continue. ?I mean, the first thing that came to my mind was that I should go and tell the Council. It would make me feel better. But then, as I was lying in bed last night, I started to wonder what purpose that would really serve. I mean, its not like it is going to do anything for Rani and Kit. It would be different if I had asked them to keep my name out of it, but they chose to do that on their own. It also doesn?t change what happened or fix the mistake.? She looked at Trevor, trying to gage his reaction.

    He listened as T?lor told him this. He had planned to tell her the exact same things. He was glad she came to the same conclusions on her own. This was just the kind of situation one would face in the Trials, and he had been afraid his friend wouldn?t get beyond the obvious reaction. ?You are probably right. I doubt the Council will lighten Rani?s or Kit?s punishment, and unless you have a time machine, the damage is done. So now what??

    ?I don?t know. I?m having a hard time concentrating on anything but the Trials. I suppose I should try to let it be and maybe atone for my part anonymously.? She suddenly looked down at her chrono. ?Sith! I?m late. Catch you later Trev,? she said as she jumped up and headed out of the room.

    I wonder?have her Trials started already? the Knight thought as he watched her race out of the cafeteria.

    Oh no, it's just that...oh never mind. I have so many assignments at the moment and I shouldn't be doing this. Sith it! I just recieved my exam timetable and they changed my ancient exam to my birthday. SITH! Back to other things, you don't have a holiday? We or rather Australia gets soo many a year. Not that I'm complaining

    Kithera stepped gingerly into the lounge room, she had learned the hard way that stepping on leggo blocks was as painful as the worst forms of torture.

    "Quijia?" Kithera called, making it safely to the kitchen without stepping on one of the brightly coloured blocks, "do you want something to eat?"

    "No." the little girl replied sulkily, "You don't have any food I like remember."

    Kithera did remember, unfortunately, last night Quijia had refused to eat anything on her plate and Kithera had told her that she wasn't going to give her dessert until she did. They had sat in grumpy silence until Quijia had relented and eat a couple of mouthfulls of food. Kithera had finally given in as well as supplied the girl with a generous portion of icecream. Kithera could clearly recall the beaming look on Quijia's face as she had eaten the icecream and sprinkles which Kithera had managed to dig out of her cupboard. The knight had promised to take Quijia the next day to buy 'little girl' food, so far she hadn't had time. The door bell rang and Kithera sighed as she heard Quijia open it.

    "Force Kithera, you've shrunk!" Kithera heard Perrian explain before Quijia's voice pipped up.

    "I'm not Knight Rinani and you shouldn't call my master by her first name. Knights are to be called by their second name, that is what Master N-ari said. She said we can call her by her first name otherwise it would be too confusing and..." Quijia paused to gather breath before beratting the knight. Kithera quickly slipped out of the kitchen and giggled at the sight of Perrian looking interested in Quijia's stern lecture.

    "Thankyou, Quijia." Kithera managed repressing a smile, "This is Knight Perrian and you can call him by his first name. Why don't you go and clean up your lego before putting your boots on." Kithera said. Watching the little girl bounce off around the bricks without hitting a single one.

    "Gee that was a quick pregnacy." Perrian quipped giveing Kithera a kiss on the cheek. Kithera giggled,

    "Oh yes, we call her Quijia because Kit-gon Rinn is too confusing." Kithera said giggling again,

    "Personally I prefer Kui-hera jinia." Perrian said back and then sobered, "She called you master. Don't tell me that you have taken a padawan. I didn't think the council would let you after..."

    "...the party." Kithera finished for him. Perrian nodded,

    "It was actually the councils' idea. It is to give me responsibility." Kithera said loftily, "actually, I just think they like torture by lego blocks."

    Perrian laughed, "Actually, I thought you might want some help with dance class today." he said.

    "Yes, Quijia doesn't have classes so I'm going to have her there as well."Kithera said smiling and beginning to bounce.

    "Master Kithera," Quijia whined, "I can't do my laces."

    "Here." Perrian said crossing the now cleared room, "You do one little bantha ear and then another bantha ear and then you fold one under the other and you're done!"

    "Wow!" Quijia exclaimed looking up "you're cool!" Quickly the little girl picked up her bag and raced out the door. Perrian following on her heels, Kithera giggled as he passed her.

    "Banthas? I always thought it was yoda ears"

    ****

    "Oh, hello are you the exchange student...Caroline?" Kithera asked cheerfully bouncing on the spot. The girl gave her a once over look of disaproval and sighed dramatically.

    "I hope we aren't going to do something silly, I really must protest dancing with all these grotty little boys." Caroline said. Kithera made a face at Perrian and then turned to the rest of the class.

    "Oh hello, K'vel!" Kithera exclaimed spotting the student,

    "This is Insei." K'vel said waving a hand at another student who did not look like he wanted to be there.

    "OBI-WAN!" Quijia
