Chapter 1 The book


Winter- 2005 Montana

Anakin Skywalker sat on the big sofa in Padmes living room. Although her house was

Not in Naboo, it was on the earth where we all live, but in a place called Montana where It was almost always cold and most of the time windy. So that is why Anakin was sitting on the sofa, and sitting with him was Dooko and Obiwan. They were all listening to the radio. Anakin was very lonely, even if he did not look it he felt cold and sad. He missed his mom in Africa, his half finished robot, his little hut and his friends. If only he had not built the fast bike he might, be at home right now with his mother and his home, sure he would be a slave, but it would be fine as long as he were there with his mom. As he thought about his mom he heard the front door open and Quigon walked in the room with a bag full of things from Marsh. "I have a few donuts for you Ani, if you're hungry." He thought back to what his mom taught him, Remember it is rude to refuse any type of food especially when we here are so hungry.

So remembering that, he said, "sure Master Quigon, I would love a do-not," everyone started laughing at him. He turned and said, "What's so funny?" "Well it is called a doughnut." Dooko said, smiling at the small boy. "Well they both sound the same." Anakin said as they past him one. "Yes they do, but it is sort of different.” Dooko laughed. As Anakin ate a jelly filled doughnut Padme walked in. "Hey Ani! We were talking last night about sending you to school." "WHY? I thought I was going to a Jedi school." He must have looked so sad because Dooko smiled and said, "You are, but we only said school to see your reaction, I told you guys he was the one.” Padme looked hard at Anakin, “He sure does act like the one.” Anakin had no idea of what they spoke of, but if they looked that pleased, than it must be a good thing, to look like the One, right?

"So you know what to tell the bus driver... okay?" "Yes Master Dooko." Anakin sat at the table, the Jedi’s had been explaining to him how he will go to the school, and Anakin had a tough time repeating their instructions. But Anakin never gave up easy. He nodded with confidence and told them he could do it. "Good boy, now let's see to lunch." That night, Ani called Kipster, his friend in Africa, and told him about school. "NO!" He said into the phone piece. "You can't go to school!" Anakin gasped for breath and said, "Why not?" Kip answered with the utmost assurance, "The teachers are bad!" "How do you know?" Kip took a moment to answer, "Well, my older brother worked for a teacher and she was a bad woman, she beat him till he ran away!" Anakin started to sweat; he hadn’t known that people could be so mean to kids his age. "Really, are you sure?" "Yup, I am telling you the truth." At that point Anakin started to hatch a plan. "Okay I'll see what I can do."

"Good night Kip." "Night” he called then hung up.

That night, Ani looked out his window up into the sky, "How could the stars seem so peaceful when I am suffering?" He thought, "Oh! It's for those that feel lonely can see the beautiful sky and know that they are not alone." With that, he drifted off to sleep wondering what tomorrow would bring.

The next morning at 6:35 Padme walked Anakin to the bus stop. "Now remember to listen to your teacher." The very word brought chills down his spine and he felt sick. "Ani, are you alright?" "Yes, I am fine. I just felt...cold." "Oh okay. Do you have enough lunch?" "Yes I have enough to use for dinner too." "Good, just make sure you stay warm. Here's five dollars to help you get water or soda." "Okay? Yes, sure." Anakin stammered, he was so busy thinking of his plan. but he managed to say the word right. "Okay I will see you tonight." "Hey I have a question” Anakin said. "Yes?" Padme said looking down with a sweet smile. "Do you have work today?" "No but the senator wants to see me about

Something, but that’s all, Why do you ask?" “Well I was hoping you might be able to come see me today." "Well I don't think I can, I have a lot of stuff to do." "Oh okay. BYE!" As she left, Anakin started to smile, at least he knew she would be to busy to make him stop his plan, he had been laughing for a few minutes but had to stop because some kid came up to wait for the bus. Ani thought, "Should I say something?" But, before he could say anything a big yellow bus roared around the corner. So doing what the other kid did he soon found himself on the big yellow bus, but it was not what he expected. There were no seat belts, and there were so many kids. Some of them glared at him and some put their hands over any empty seat next to them. He was so scared that he sat down where the next empty seat was. Next to a quite brown skinned girl, she was cute, but very young maybe around seven or eight. Anakin never knew kids that age could learn anything but work. Then again he had been a slave his whole life.

After a few minutes, Ani had a good plan and all he needed to do was put it in action. When the bus came at a red light Ani looked for a nice place, and when he spotted one he called out, "STOP mister bus driver!" "What? Why?" "Well, that's my Jedi School you just passed." "JEDI!" a kid shouted. "Man, you're a creep." The bus driver looked in the mirror then turned towards Anakin "Alright, stop here boy, we don't want any trouble so off you go." In an instant he found himself being pushed along to the door then kicked out. He landed on the hard ground. He sighed as the bus rolled away. He got up and looked at his elbow, it was scraped and almost bleeding, but he saw his destination so he walked towards the big building and wondered, "What is it?" Then when he got in he found out that it was a library. So he went to a shelf and a man there said, "Hey man, what can I do you for?" "Um, I don't know, I am just looking." "Ah ha” The man chuckled and looked at Anakin with a smile and bright eyes. “Okay man. But if ye need anything, just give me a holler" “Boy, that guys a creep," Anakin said to himself. Just as he started walking he passed a small book. It looked cool so he picked it up and it said, "Luther's Small Catechism." Hmm! This looks neat. He opened it up and then read the first Commandment and gasped, "YOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GODS!" He read aloud to himself. “I am not a believer!” So with that, Anakin chose to follow this Luther guy no matter what happens.
