    Title:Tayska?s Trials
    Characters:OC (Tayska), Obi-Wan, Anakin and various other canon characters that my OC may run across
    Summary: The inner musings of the trials and tribulations of a somewhat inept female Padawan in the shadow of the Chosen one.
    Notes: Written for the 2008 Diary Challenge.

    Fresher duty! It?s hard to believe that something like that would actually get me to write in this thing. Well, my Master wanted me to learn - what did she call it ? yes, cursive writing instead of depending on the datapad. This wasn?t what she was likely expecting though, releasing my anger on this parchment and to top it off, this stupid instrument leaks liquid that is now getting all over my hand. I question my Master?s ability to be rational at times like these. But I digress. (Take that Master! I have been working on my vocab.)

    I can?t believe I got fresher duty and it was so not my fault. I was in sparring practice like I was supposed to be and I was trying so hard. I really am not good at fighting techniques. It doesn?t matter how hard I try, I suck. Master Meloran has this mistaken idea that with practice, I will improve but I really am hopeless. Now that she is gone on a mission, I?ve been put into Master Obi-Wan?s care. I respect my master but who wouldn?t want to be taught by Master Obi-Wan. He has the dreamiest eyes, blue or green ? actually I think they change color with his mood. I know Jedi aren?t supposed to have moods but there has to be something that accounts for those amazing eyes. When he talks, well, I could just melt. I don?t know what planet he came from originally but wow, he has the cutest accent. And yes, of course, he is the only Jedi alive to have defeated a Sith, well, he and Master Yoda, I think but Master Yoda is well, green. I figure if anyone could teach me, Master Obi-Wan could. For some reason though, I?m doing even worse with him and I am really trying.

    He set me to sparring with his Padawan Anakin. That Padawan is full of himself, thinks he can do everything. To be honest, he pretty much can do everything, at least way better than I can. That really isn?t saying much though. I was really sweating during our lightsabre practice and he wasn?t even the least out of breath. Then Master Obi-Wan says he wants to see me try pushing Anakin, you know like Force pushing him. Anakin stands there smirking at me and that got me really mad. I know I should be in control of my emotions, that whole ?there is only peace? stuff but I just couldn?t help it. It?s like he knew I was going to blow it. Well, I gave it my all trying really hard not to make a complete fool of myself but I didn?t believe I could push a chair out of the way let alone a person who is determined not to let me gain an inch.

    Master Obi-Wan knew his Padawan was making me mad and he kept telling me to control myself, to concentrate, to believe I could do it. After about the fourth time he said that and the fourth time I saw Anakin look at me like I was a Force blind being, I got completely distracted and madder than a hairy Bantha that had been a poked with a prod. I swirled around to Master Obi-Wan and I guess I was still pushing. Well, I did finally get it because I pushed the Master off his feet and clear back to the wall.

    I think if Anakin hadn?t burst out laughing when Master Obi-Wan landed on his behind, I would have been okay, really. Stupid Padawan. When the Master stood up, his eyes were blazing. As dreamy as his eyes are when they are just looking at you, when they blaze like that well, except for the fact that I was pretty scared that I?d hurt him, (imagine, me hurting someone ? wow, my Master might be right about me) anyway, his eyes really are amazing! But he was really angry. How was I to know it would work? I tried to apologize but Anakin interrupted by saying, ?be mindful of your thoughts, Master? and laughed again.

    That was when I got assigned fresher duty. He said it was so I could ?think about any l

    Entry 2

    Ha! Fresher duty turned out to be much more entertaining that I had expected. I went down to the supply room to get the cleaning supplies. How sad is it that I knew exactly where to go? It has been a long time since I was assigned that as a punishment but I did have a long stint doing it when I was younger. I suppose that it did give me time to think about what it meant to be a Jedi. Still, I can?t say that I hated it when I was younger. You see, it was always Beltona and I together and we had some wonderful adventures, adventures that of course landed us in trouble with the Masters. Hence our discipline. I love that word, discipline. Our Masters never used the term punishment. Discipline was to train us to act in accordance with the rules. That was my Master?s way of putting it. I couldn?t understand what possible connection there could be between cleaning the baths and toilets and the rules of a Jedi, at least not at first. It wasn?t until Beltona?s Master gave us the additional task of debating subject, just the two of us while we were busy cleaning. She?d give us a different topic each time. It really did lead to some interesting discussions between us. But that was long ago, before Beltona left Coruscant. Perhaps, in hindsight, that is why it has been so long since I?ve had to do Fresher Duty. I do miss her terribly.

    So after I had dragged the supplies to the first Fresher, who walked in but the high and mighty Anakin himself. I asked him if he had come to gloat but the look on his face held no amusement. As it turned out, he had gotten the same ?discipline? from Master Obi-Wan as I had. At first I just gloated thinking that Anakin?s wise mouth had finally gotten him in trouble. He really was no better than I was. But he actually surprised me. At first he was all whiny about how unfair it was until I reminded him that it was likely his fault that I was there too. He denied that it had anything to do with him until I pointed out ? okay so I kind of yelled out, that if he hadn?t laughed when his Master landed on his butt, Obi-Wan ? sorry Master Obi-Wan wouldn?t have gotten so bent out of shape. That shut him up and rather abruptly too. In fact, it brought a rather wicked grin to his face. The next thing I knew, we were both laughing. Who knew the mighty Chosen One could laugh? He had always looked so serious to me, to me and all the other Padawans.

    Oops! I have to go for my lesson now. I definitely better not be late today. I?ll be back later to write some more.

    I've always wondered what would happen if a Padawan got in trouble... :p
