Whispers of the Past

I was taking a break from my work when I found this meme by someone named Jaina Solo. I had never heard the name before, and was sure that maybe she was trying to fool me.

I was once called Barriss Offee, but that was so long ago. Nearly a lifetime ago, and still someone knows that name. Maybe even knew me before the fall of the Jedi Order, but mostly likely not.

I nearly throw the meme away thinking that maybe it was for the best that this person not know I was alive. Then thought I'd go to where this Meme came from and tell her the person she is looking for died at the hands of the clone troopers.

It would be better that way, right?

'Yeah right!' I told myself as I left work and went to docking bay. A ship I had once used was still docked there waiting for me.

It took me three hours to ready my ship for departure. I shook my head as I looked out on the only other home I've ever had in a long time.

'I'll be back." I told myself as I left the planet behind me. I nearly got space sick from not flying in so long.

"I miss home." I moaned to myself as I started to track where the message had come from.

Slowly the computer came back with general location of Yavin 4. The only thing that was holding me back was thinking that this could be from a Dark Jedi or worse a Sith.

'Go Barriss go.' I barely heard over my own troubled thoughts. At first it didn't regester who's voice it was. Then it hit me, "Master?" I called out knowing that it was either a memory or really her voice I heard.

A single tear raced down my face as I programed a course for Yavin 4.

I didn't know what I was going to find when I got there or if I just sealed my own death in stone.

Sealing your own death in stone is not as difficult as sealing your own death in Jello!

...believe me, I tried.

Trust your feelings.

I have to agree with Obi Wan. And Jawa, it is harder to seal your death in Jello.

How are you doing? Just wanted to know if you were still kicking.
