This is a old story that I just recently found under my bed. the bold print is staight out of Lara's Journal. I had to re-poet this because of the forum split. Lara Skywalker is Luke Skywalker's other sister. She's two years younger than he and Leia. Lara had recently lived on Earth, in Washington State, USA, for 16 years. (Luke and Lara were seperated at birth. This story starts out right after the battle of Endor, in Lara's journal: *Chapter 1* Monday, Augusta 10, 4018, Dear Journal, It?s over. Tuesday, Augusta 11, 4018, Dear Journal, I?m sorry I didn?t write that much in my last entry. It happened all so fast. I?ll try to explain as much as I can. When we arrived on the Planet Endor, it reminded me of the state of Washington. The trees and foliage made me miss home. And the rain! It felt like I was in a flood sometimes back there. Back to the point. Our mission was to find the main deflector shield for the second Death Star in the middle of the forest and disable it so our X-Wings could go down a tube into the core and blow up the energy source. Han, Luke, Chewbacca and I were looking for Leia when Chewbacca found a piece of a dead animal and pulled on it. We got hung up in a net. R2-D2 cut the net by using a power blade. When we all recovered from the fall, the bushes started to move and little teddy bears came out with spears pointed at us. When Threepio sat up they started praising him. Goldenrod said that they think that he was some kind of god. Luke was chuckling and I was laughing half to death! I thought it was really funny. Next, they tied us to poles and carried us into the their little tree house village. now that I think about it, their names were Ewoks. They kind of looked like a teddy bear and a dog of some kind mixed together. They spoke some strange language, but Threepio understood every word of it. I don't remember how we exactly defeated the Empire. I do know that Luke finally told Leia that he was her brother and that I was her sister. After that, he left, and no one saw him until the end of the next day. He told me what he was doing. He turned himself into the Scouttroopers and they took him to Darth Vader. Vader brought him to the Emperor on the Second Death Star. The Emperor tried to bring fear and hatred into Luke to transfer him to the Dark Side. Luke called his lightsaber from the Emperor's throne and soon found himself battling his father. After watching Luke suffer from Palpatine's Force Lightning, Darth Vader threw the Emperor into the Core shaft. Luke had brought my father, his father, and Leia's father out of the shadows of the Empire My father eventually died on the Death Star. I never knew him, and neither did Luke or Leia. Luke barely escaped from the super station and burned Anakin Skywalker on Endor. Now I remember what happened back on Endor. The little Ewoks did not burn us because of some magic floating air business with Threepio. I wasn?t really paying that much attention. After Luke left, the Ewoks led us to the back entrance to the bunker. We got caught a few times by the Imps, but we blew it up eventually. Now, I know that I really do belong here, like Luke said. I'm legally changing my name to Lara Skywalker. Since I'll miss MarÃa, I will use it incase I become a New Republic Intelligence agent and have to use a code name. Now we are rejoicing the destruction of the Death Star, and the death of Emperor Palpatine. This will be the last time I sign out as MarÃa Haro. MarÃa Haro The next time I write, I will be Lara Skywalker forever. Larana Skywalker finished writing in her journal. She looked over at her brother Luke, fixing her crushed blaster. "Done," he said standing up from the bed. He walked over to Lara and handed her the weapon. "Be careful with this. This is the only weapon you have until you finish your lightsaber." "Yes, Luke." I won't be able to post anymore tonite, but maybe tomorrow. Please read!
