My mother said that life was a place we’re we can feel happiness, sadness, anger, and other types of emotions. When the Death Star destroyed Alderaan all I could feel was anger.
It was my fault that my parents died, that my planet got destroyed. Everything was my fault, I had failed the rebellion or that’s what I thought. I knew they were going to kill me when they found out that the rebel base I gave them was already abandoned.
When a stormtrooper came to get me from my cell I saw something off about him so I said “Aren’t you a little short for a stormtrooper?” “Huh, oh the uniform.” He took off his helmet which was against the rules and said “I’m Luke Skywalker. I’m here to rescue you.”
When he said the word Rescue I thought he was crazy. Their was no way he could pull of that kind of stunt without help of course. After that I really wasn’t paying attention until he said “I’m here with Ben Kenobi.” Ben Kenobi the man that served my father in the clone wars. Hope. This young man brought me hope.
I was right. He couldn’t pull of the stunt to rescue me by himself. I bumped straight into another person in a stormtrooper outfit. Luckily for me he didn’t feel it. Their was also a huge animal (Wookiee) who also had come to save me.
Stormtroopers were at the end and I realized we were trapped. I wondered who plan’s was it to come and rescue me and then get trapped. “This is some rescue! You came in here, but didn't you have a plan for getting out?” The older man indicated at Luke, “He's the brains, sweetheart!”
I grabbed the man blaster and shot the wall. “What the hell are you doing?!” “Somebody has to save our skins. Into the garbage chute flyboy.” I jumped into the hole and wait did I just say garbage chute? Oh krif what did I just do. Once all of us were in the chute I started fighting with Han. For some reason that made feel a little bit happy. Han saved Luke’s life and C3P0 and R2D2 saved our lifes.
We boarded Han Solo ship The Millennium Falcon. In my opinion it was a piece of junk but I wasn’t going to say that. Then I found out that Darth Vader killed Obi-Wan Kenobi. I tried my best to make Luke feel better but I guess shooting Tie fighters with Han made him happy. I could’ve help but he sent me to the cock pit. When we arrived at Yavin 4 Luke joined the rebellion while Han got his money and left.
Han and Luke were my friends and seeing Han leave just made me so mad. All he cared about was his krifing money. I had a lot of tutors, servants, teachers but they weren’t really my friends, but Han and Luke became my friends really fast. Luke got on a X-wing to destroy the Death Star. If it wasn’t for Han’s help Luke would’ve been dead. When the both of them came back to base I gave Luke and Han a hug.
I awarded Han and Luke medals of bravery during the awards ceremony. Knowing that Han was going to stay for a while made me feel relieved. I just couldn’t afford to lose Luke and Han after I lost so much. “Han why did you came back?” I said after Han and I were walking to go outside. Han hesitated for a second and then responded “I wasn’t going to let Tarkin destroy the rebellion.” “Yeah right, you can tell me the truth.”
“Fine....I came back because I was worried about Luke. He’s like.......a little brother I never had.” “Wow, I never knew you felt emotions.” Han laughed which made me smile. “Princess, of course I can feel emotions. I’m not a cyborg.” “Who knows, maybe you are a cyborg without knowing it, Han.” “Not likely princess. I can feel a lot of different emotions. Just like any other human.” “Yeah, I guess that’s true.”
I hugged him, so Han returned because he was worried about Luke. I realized then how much Luke ment to Han. Han was surprised for a moment that I hugged him but then hugged me back. “I’ll have to tell Luke about this.” “Wait....What!? You said you wouldn’t tell no one!” While he said that he pulled away from me. “I didn’t. Oh right. What are you going to say if he asks you why you came back?”
“I’ll just say that Chewie made me come back.” Han, he isn’t going to fall for that you know.” “Phhhhhh..... maybe he will, we don’t know yet.” “Unless I tell him the truth.” “Leia, I’m warning you not to tell him.” “What are you going to do about it hmm.” “I’ll make sure that Luke doesn’t talk to you and thinks that your mean.” “No please!” “Yeah, that’s what I thought princess.”
He walked away while smiling from ear to ear. It was funny how he could make me smile even in the darkest moments. I knew that not only had he returned for Luke but he had also returned for me and he knew that. I followed him and went outside were Han, Luke, and Chewie were. I knew that no matter what happen in the future we will never be separated.
