Adventures of Young Ben Solo - Part 1: Podracing
Ben looked around to see if anyone followed him. He pulled his hood up to cover his face as he pulled the gate of the academy shut with a flick of his wrist. He started walking down the sidewalk, sticking to the shadows and hiding his force presence.
Everyone in the academy was fast asleep; he had waited until the light of Master Luke’s quarters were turned off. He then jumped out of the window with the aid of the force, landing softly on the ground.
He took a sharp turn down the block and walked across the road to the other side once he reached the intersection. The streets were empty because of the late hours. He easily spotted the lone speeder parked down the street.
Ben walked up to it and found a pair of pale yellow legs hanging from the side. Ben peeked in and saw the long body of a Tong male sprawled across the seat, snoring loudly.
Ben shook his head from under the hood and knocked on the metal body of the speeder to wake the sleeping Tong up.
“I didn’t do it! I swear I didn’t.” He jerked awake, shrieking and flailing his lanky arms around to fight off the invisible enemy.
“Be quiet, Lau!” Ben muttered urgently under his breath to stop his friend from drawing attention.
Lau Quadinaros stopped moving when his eyes fell on the hooded form of Ben Solo.
“Oh Ben, it’s you.” He looked around nervously to see if anyone else was around. “Sorry. I fell asleep.”
“No need to apologize buddy, I know it’s late.” Ben hopped into the pod and buckled up. “Thanks for coming to get me.”
“Of course, anything for my friend. Besides, the race can’t start without one of it’s prime contestants.” He started up the speeder and they took off into the night.
