So I woke up. As I looked around, all I could see was darkness. I flicked on the lights. I examined the surroundings and headed back to bed. My dream. My dreams are normally happy. Now, my most burning ambitions have filled my dreams. Becoming a Jedi. My family is a long line of Jedi. My grandfather ,Ozzy, was a Jedi Grand Master. (That’s higher than the regular Master). Ever since I left home from Naboo and moved to Tatooine, I have been thinking about him. His wife, Liliana, (my Grandma Liliana), she’s a Jedi Master. As I drifted off, thinking about conquering evil, the light flicked on.
“Sal?” my father asked. “How are you still asleep? It’s 11:00 AM.” I slowly got up. As I focused my eyes, my dad was there.
“Sorry, Dad” I replied. I walked into the kitchen and my mother was playing music. It was music from the cantina down the street. It was irritating but catchy.
“How did you sleep, dear?” she asked.
“Just fine, mom.”
I readied my pack, loaded it with snacks and a dagger, just in case. I kissed my mom and dad goodbye and set off to the Sarlacc pit. My cousin Sully was there. I slowly went around the dune and crept up behind him.
I “roared” and scared him. I laughed and teased my older cousin for being scared by me.
“Really, bro?” he said, angry.
“C’mon Sul, it was just a joke,” I expressed.
We slowly headed to the edge of the Sarlacc pit. The Sarlacc was asleep and had been for the past 30 or 40 years after some Mandalorian shot it. We found some rocks and threw them at the dormant Sarlacc, however, some feeling of dread struck upon us, so we headed back to my house. As we walked on the dirt road, I noticed a green crystal stuck into the ground. I pulled it out of the ground and held it to the sun.
“Is that a lightsaber crystal?” he asked.
“I guess. Let’s see my dad.” I insisted.
We headed down the dirt road a little more and we got to our house. I stuck the key in the slot and opened the door. My mother was cooking cinnamon rolls. They smelled delicious. My dad was in his work room, repairing a lightsaber. He was repairing my brother Cole’s funky lightsaber. He’s a general in the Jedi Order. The lightsaber is weird alright. My dad claimed Cole got it from his friend’s dad, who fought with the rebels during the Rise of Darth Vader, many years ago. We advanced into the work area.
“Hey, Uncle Ralph.” muttered Sully.
“Hey Sully, how ya doing’,” he continued using his electrodriver on the lightsaber. Sending sparks into the openings for the blade. He pressed the button and one long, yellow blade shot out. It also had a blaster built in. What a strange device. My dad tested it a little bit. He swung it around and hit all the blades against the dummy. Then, he fired a few shots at the dummy. He then packed it up and shipped it to the Jedi Council Office on Coruscant. I pulled out the mysterious green crystal and showed it to my dad.
“Hmm... interesting…” he observed. He held it to the light.
“This is a lightsaber crystal,” He observed it from every angle. “Someday, Salvatore, this crystal will power your lightsaber.”
My face lit up, bright red with excitement. Sully went slack-jawed and stared at me. Could it be true? Will I finally get my hands on a genuine lightsaber? So many questions fluttered through my mind as my father choked back what he said, regretting saying anything in the first place. No doubt about it, I was getting my own lightsaber. It’s just a shame every last Jedi was wiped off the face of our galaxy.
Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

Jason Phang: I'm pretty new to Inkitt (this is only my 4th book) and I must say I've been thoroughly impressed by the quality of the authors here. Remnants of Chaos is an excellently written book that hooks the reader, and doesn't let go. There are some grammatical and typographical errors, but nothing too se...
spooky jedi: Love your story!I really hope more people read this story!Its amazing!! The plot is very unique and different, which is very good to have in a world full of stories. You have very complex and intellectual plot line, with your many loveable character and that hint of 'will they, won't they' is ju...
PaulSenkel: If you like Arthur C. Clarke's Odyssey, especially The Final Odyssey, then you will probably also enjoy this book. I definitely did.It does, however, address a more adolescent public than the above-mentioned book.I enjoyed the story and finished it in a few days. The overall situation on earth an...
Erica: La trama es muy interesante y original y eso ya dice muchísimo cuando todos tratan de triunfar con ideas ya trilladas.No puedo opinar en detalle sobre la gramática, porque a pesar de entender el inglés a la perfección, la falta de uso en cuanto a lectura y diálogo hacen que me maneje bastante mal...
ElusiveBadwolf: I loved this book so much! It's a shame that i already came to the end of this. I really enjoyed the story, and i liked it how everything became in the end. It was a great book and i can say that you are a great writer too. Keep it that way and i think you can make it in the writing business!
Sara Grover: When I first started reading, it was a bit slow; though only because it was so information intense and fast-paced in trying to describe how this complex galactic corporation/government like entity controls known space. I would suggest maybe adding a preface to better educate the reader to help av...
SandraHan1: This story is very descriptive, with vivid scenes from the very beginning, which made for a good scene setting. I love the symbolism in names, such as “Naysayers”, “Hadd”, etc . The story itself is revolutionary, intriguing, emotional and exciting. I was very pleased to see that there is a happy ...
