Title: Where do I go next? Author: Adalia Durron Characters: Adalia Tehanis, Chrissy and Cam Rigsby Genre: Drama, Attempted Romance, heartbreak and life choices Timeline: Beyond Legends OC Summary: Adalia is 16, she lost both her parents 18 months ago to the Rebellion and inheriting a plantation, this young woman is finding her way with the help of her life long friend Cam and his girlfriend Chrissy. Her future is set with the inheritance, so so it seems, but not in her heart. Author's Note: Adalia is my original character, she has aged to near 40 in the RPG world but her roots are still a mystery. She lives on fictional Akrian, which I base on Australia. Dear Diary, I feel silly doing this, Chrissy says it helps her, but I can’t see how writing down my feelings and thoughts is going to help me. I’m a kriffing Orphan! Yes, I am angry, my mother was in the wrong place at the wrong time when the Imperial Garrison was bombed, she died trying to buy a cake for my birthday. Am I not supposed to be angry about that? Then Dad, he was a fool! He joined the kriffing underground resistance and off he went, sneaking about at night with people I don’t know and not caring that his only child was alone and scared. Then he went and got himself shot by a Stormtrooper. I thought those guys were lousy shots, clearly, I was wrong. Angry is my only emotion right now, I feel like they were selfish in their wants and needs and ignored mine. I’m alone now and did they think about how that would affect me? Doesn’t feel like it! I want to cry, I want to scream, I want to hit things, but I have to remember ‘I’m special’, well that’s what dad calls it. His mum was a Jedi, that’s his big secret, and mine now. In not only got a cocoa estate from him, I got the ability to use the Force. A burden in this currently climate. The Empire is bad, I know that, so much so my father had to die fighting them, but what can I do? What could he do, well he managed to die and for what? The Empire doesn’t care about him, or me, or anyone really, so why not just lay low and do as they say? Want to stay alive, that’s the way! I'm lucky Cam can give me a look to tell me to calm down, he's like a big brother watching me and making sure I don't explode. Who knows what could happen if I did? I sure don't, Dad never told me, just told me it would be very bad. Great help there Dad. Now I’m stuck with learning how to run the blasted plantation. What do I know about cocoa? Aside from the fact it’s what they use to make Chocolate. I thank the stars for Cam every day, his dad was running the plantation for my father till he got ill, but he had been teaching Cam all the way. He’s 5 years older than me and between him and his girlfriend Chrissy I have that to be grateful for. Chrissy is 20 and she’s turned into a ‘big sister’ to me and she knows how angry I am at the galaxy around me. I feel like this Force Dad says I have, it is everywhere and it makes decisions and it took everything I love from me. Why would I want to learn about it? Why would I ever bother to open that blasted holocron again? I can’t, I won’t. I’m going to learn how to run this plantation and continue this part of my father’s legacy, continue his dream and maybe one day fall in love and have a bunch of kids, not just one. Being an only child stinks.
