Boom-Bam Baby I'm Back (Erifia)
Let’s begin with the fact I was on the other side of the galaxy. It was a dead zone. No-one knew where I was at. I didn’t even know where I was at. I was thirsty, lonely, and lost. Let’s continue with the fact that there are some people who just don’t give up.
One of these people… Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator.
He and I crossed paths often in my glory days. (If you could call any of my days glory days.) I had participated on both of his previous shows. I was a contestant on the first show and I was a judge on the second.
Now, here’s how this all went down. I was in middle of the desert. I was thirsty, and as I was exploring I came across a Rancor Mother with her children. Normally, I am clever enough not to get close enough, but, I was dehydrated and probably seeing things.
When I stepped into the clearing, and this mother rancor saw me… Needless to say she charged me.
I withdrew two of my sabers, my white and dark purple one. Then a net dropped down from above caught her, made her drop to the ground like a ton of bricks, and her babies started whining, I looked to where the net had come from…
It was a weird looking machine. It landed and the children started running around. Off of the ship stepped Jon. He looked at the Rancor and he smiled, he looked at me and smiled even bigger, then he took a drink out of a frosty bottle of water.
“It’s hot ‘round these parts, huh?” I looked at him with wide eyes, “I decided to catch me one of these rancor. You never know when one will come in handy.” I shook my head, “Jon…” I watched him take another drink, “Jon can I have the water?”
“Ewww! After I drank on it… That’s nasty… I’ll tell you what. I will take you back to civilization, but you have to agree to be on LGS3.” My lekkus had to fall as droopy as my shoulders, “Really? Are you serious?”
“Afraid so,” he said, “So.. Water and Civilization, or this place.”
“Let’s go Jon…” Two more nets dropped from the ship and he collected the rancor family, and he and I went back to civilization.
I thought about running and him forgetting about it.
I thought about not showing up and calling in sick.
But I missed everyone so much I wanted to see them again…
So here I am…
Hugs and Kisses,

I missed you all! Life swamped me: But I’m back for the summer. (Maybe the whole summer?)
