Letter's to Kay - Good vs Evil


Hey Kay! I hope one day you can read these letters. My friend here on Balmorra, Baron Swift (Yes! A real Baron. Baron of what? I'm still not sure.) has urged me to get my thoughts out. I guess you could say he's kind of a mentor. Well, I'm going to try anyways.

I don't think I'll start from the beginning, but a lot has gone on since I've arrived here on Balmorra. I do miss the forests of Shikaakwa though. But mostly I miss you.

Basically my life has become like walking on a tightrope. On one side I've got my life with my parents. They've fallen in with the Imperial Government pretty hard and are starting to push me along those lines as well. They work long hours at the factory. When we do eat supper together it's so quiet. Both mother and father aren't allowed to talk about what they do at work. Not even to each other. I feel like my family is slowly rotting away.

A few days ago my parent's forced me to attend an Imperial Security seminar with them. I don't want to even express the horrors of what they proposed. I swear I won't be surprised if a genocide occurs in the next few years.

Ugh, my parents made me sign up for Imperial Recruitment pre-training. We had to go through all these drills and even fight hand to hand with each other! One thing I do gotta say is, I'll definitely put this training to good use. Just not they way the Imperials want me to!

I also had to take this job with some Imperial general. Uhhh.. I don't really want to say why I had to take it… let's just say I was a bit too curious. Sheesh! I can totally imagine your expression right now. Well, I think it actually might help the other side of my life.

Ahh the other side. Kay, I don't even know how I ended up with all this. Apparently I'm part of the frizkin Rebellion! It's even official! I met these friends (yeah, the Baron is one of them) and just started hanging out. They were all dissatisfied with the Empire and started planning little missions to get back at them.

Ok. I know. You're not going to like this part. I don't really like it either. I mean, I did at first. I thought it was cool and it got my heart pumping, but now I'm just scared. Sorry, I'm talking about the blaster. When we moved here I found my grandfather's old blaster in some locked away trunk. I totally smuggled it here without telling anyone! My parents don't even know. Alright, I'm going to have to admit it. I actually shot at someone with it. Well, it was a storm trooper. But they were keeping a prisoner in a cage like an animal and they were shooting back at me! Kay, I've never been so scared in my life! I haven't had to use it since then and I'm afraid what's going to happen when I do. Damaria showed me how to use it. I think you'd like her Kay. She stands on her own and gets things done and she doesn't take any frizz from the other guys.

I'm actually kind of glad I was at that seminar I told you about. Damaria killed an Imperial agent while I was gone. I think it's made things weird between her and the Baron. In fact, when I got back the Baron (yeah, you know what, I still don't know his first name!) threw a party for all of us. He launched into some long speech about our duty against the Imperials. And I get it Kay! I've seen the Empire time and time again step on us and beat us down. Some of my friends at school have had their old siblings or parents disappear in the night. Nobody talks about it though. I even got to help out another 'lek who was being harassed by Stormies. I managed to bowl them over with my speeder and scooped her up. She .. right yeah, uhhhh, she was grateful for me helping out. Of course I would have helped out if she was a guy too. I mean. Well, you know what I mean.

Anyways, the Baron was also talking about this weird Force stuff. Some sort of mystical thing that some people have. Apparently him and Damaria have it. The Baron can control people just by talking to them! I honestly don't think I believe this but the others seem to take it in stride. And apparently Damaria can read minds! Well, not actually thoughts but just … I don't know, images maybe? Uhhh, I have to say I really hope she wasn't using this on me all the time. I can't help it Kay! She's pretty hot for a human! Yeah, I can totally see you rolling your eyes right now. I think the Baron's into her though. Well, maybe. There's this other woman who was there too. Via D'Gane I think her name was. There was something off though. I don't really know what was going on. I felt totally attracted to her. But I hadn't even met her yet! It's like it was over the top. Maybe it was a Force thing, although I don't know why she would be using it on all of us. Luckily she hasn't noticed me yet. Damaria definitely doesn't like her though! If eyes would shoot daggers Via would be pinned to the wall!

Well, I'll close this letter for now. Some fat 'lek the Baron knows is going to give me a sidecar for my bike. I think I'll owe him a favor or something. Apparently he's got some sort of mission for us. It feels like everyone has a mission for us these days. Ahh well.

And like I said before. I doubt you'll even get these letters. I'm wouldn't dare send them. I'll keep saved and maybe some day you can read them. I just hope we survive that long.

I will say this though. I'm trying to contact you. The Baron is checking if we can send a message or at least check where you are at.

I miss you Kay! I'll see you again, on this side or the next.
