3. First Day

It was the big day. Ronald was packing his suitcase. As he was close to finishing, Mrs. Potter walked in.

"Ronald, it's almost time to go," she said. "Are you ready? Did you pack everything you need?"

"I think so," Ronald replied. "Books, my journal, drawing pens, sketchbook, musicplayer, skateboard, phone, comics..."

"What about clothes?" Mrs. Potter interrupted.

Ronald froze, his mouth hanging wide open. "Oops..." He rushed for the dresser.

"Hurry up!" Mrs. Potter urged as Ronald stuffed random outfits into his suitcase.

Mrs. Potter drove Ronald there in her landspeeder. Oliver was sitting behind him.

"Is it too late to change my mind?" Ronald whimpered as they neared the bus station.

A moment later, they climbed out and Mrs. Potter gave Ronald a hug. "You'll be fine," she said. "I love you!"

Ronald waved hastily as he dragged his suitcase onto the bus. But as Ronald took his seat and the bus lifted off into space, Ronald began to feel nervous again.

A while later, the bus landed in a docking bay at the Jedi Temple. Ronald climbed out with his suitcase. I think I'm lost...

Suddenly, a voice called out. "Hey! Hey, you!" A human walked up to him. He had Jedi robes on, and his hair was a reddish-brown. "I'm Ammon," said the kid as he rushed over to Ronald. "You're the new kid, right? What's your name?"

"I'm Ronald," Ronald replied. He was about to shake Ammon's hand when a Mon Calmari named Bill walked up with astromech RW-12.

"Hey, new kid!" said Bill. RW-12 beeped. "RW-12 says 'Welcome to the Jedi Temple."

Suddenly, someone tripped over Ronald. "Watch it!" said a fat, yellow-skinned Zabrak.

A thinner, red-skinned Zabrak was with him. "Who's that?"

"It's a new kid," replied a slender human girl wearing a hood and following him.

"I'm Ronald," Ronald called after them.

"Whatever," the shorter kid replied. "You a transfer?"

"No, I'm just new."

The taller, thinner Zabrak walked up behind him. "Huh?" the first went on. "You're too old to be a new kid."

"Yeah, what makes you so special?" asked the thinner one.

The shorter one raised his hand in a vulgar gesture. "Yeah, we've all been training for years! How come you get to skip ahead?"

"Well, actually I really just want to be a star pilot," Ronald stammered.

The shorter one pointed his finger at Ronald. "I know you think you're pretty great, but you'll see who's really special here!" Both kids flounced off.

"Who was that?" Ronald asked the three remaining kids.

A green-skinned Twi'lek answered, "That was Severus Umbridge, Vernon Dudley, and Pansy Lestrange. I'm Tegan. This is Annabeth."

"Hi," Annabeth mused shyly. "Where are you from, Ronald?"

"Tatooine," Ronald replied.

"Tatooine? Where's that?" Annabeth replied.

Suddenly, a pudgy Zabrak walked up behind them. He was slightly shorter than Vernon. "Oh, I've heard of it...there's nothing there, right?"

"This is Eegan," said Bill, pointing to the Zabrak.

"So...do you guys know where the dorm room is?" asked Ronald.

"Yeah, we can follow RW-12," Ammon replied. RW-12 beeped and turned toward the doorway.

The conversation continued as they walked through the halls. "Who's in there?" asked Ronald.

"The training ground for high schoolers," said Bill. "I hear it's much more boring than our own. After training there is complete you become a Padawan Learner under the tutelage of a Jedi Knight."

"So, you're starting out pretty late," Ammon said, changing the subject. They had rounded a corner. "You must be pretty powerful!"

Ronald didn't know what to say. "Not really? I mean...I don't think so..."

Just then, they arrived at Ronald's dorm. "Here's your room!" said Ammon. "You can put your suitcase up there."

Ronald looked up at the shelf connected to the ceiling. "How do I get it up there?"

Ammon extended his hand, and the suitcase moved to the shelf. "Oh, you just use the Force!"

Ronald gasped.

Later, Ronald met Yoda in his office.

"Ronald, you must be," said Yoda.

Ronald was confused. "I must be what?"

"Master Yoda, I am," said Yoda. "Good to have you here, it is! Heh heh heh!"

Huh? Ronald raised an eyebrow. "Um...it's good to meet you, Master Yoda?"

"Ooh, good to meet me, it is, hmm?"

"Um, what?"

See how it is, I do. "Much to learn you have, hm? Much to understand, hm?"
