Ronald Potter And The Jedi Holocron: Ronald Potter Year 1

Ronald Potter's first year at the Jedi Temple. Ron's one dream is to leave home and attend Pilot Academy like his brother, father, and grandfather. But just as he is mysteriously denied entrance to Pilot Academy, he is invited to attend the Jedi Temple--a school that he didn't apply for and that only recruits 1-year-olds...until now. Now under the tutelage of Master Yoda, Ron learns that he possesses more strength and potential than he could have dreamed.

2. The Jedi Temple

Ronald took the letter and read:

Dear Ronald Potter,

Recently your application to Pilot Academy came to the attention of Master Yoda at the Coruscant Jedi Temple. On his behalf, I would like to invite you to attend the Jedi Temple this coming school year. Please find a brochure with your schedule travel details, other information, and about 20 pages of paperwork to fill out.

May the Force be with you,

Principal Antilles

Ronald folded up the letter. He knew where he was going now: the Jedi Temple. He knew the Jedi got to use laser swords, which sounded cool to him, though he never quite got when they used them given they were peacekeepers. He talked to Reg and Jesse about it, who said he was lying, because there was no way you ended up in the Jedi Temple given only babies are taken in. Undaunted, Ronald showed them the papers. Then they laughed and said he'd be stuck in a class with babies.

Ron came home just as his mom turned in the paperwork. He smiled. At least he wouldn't have to go to Plant School.

***

Mrs. Potter told him there was also a description with his letter. It was mostly text, with a few pictures. This one said:

Welcome to the Jedi Temple!

Located on the towering metropolis of Coruscant, the Jedi Temple is the galaxy's premiere training facility for Jedi Knights. This state-of-the-art complex has everything necessary for the most complete Jedi training ever, with gifted individuals learning at the highest levels.

On the next page was an FAQ explaining the basics to Ronald--what a Jedi was, what the Force was, what tools the Jedi wielded, what the dark side was, and that students would learn Jedi mind tricks in their third year.

The next page explained who the staff were. Principal Antilles, Master Yoda, the English teacher Mrs. Hilton, the Wookie Kitnum, the Zabrak Mr. Maulpres, Libraran Lackbar, astromech RW-12 and protocol droid P-3TO.

The next day, Ronald was in his room when he got a letter from his dad. Jedi Temple Schooling started tomorrow. He opened it and read:

Dear Ronald,

Mom says you're really disappointed about not getting into Pilot Academy, but I'm still proud of you--becoming a Youngling is a big honor! I think you'll learn a lot more than you expect, and you'll have a ton of fun--especially if you're learning how to use the Force. You can always try to get into the academy next year, but give this a try first and see how it goes.

Love, Dad

P.S. Here's a patch like the one I wear on my flight suit. Just remember that I still believe in you.

Ronald smiled. At least Mr. Potter would always be there, even when he wasn't. And suddenly the Academy seemed a little less formidable to him.
