“now,” alsmora started, “how experienced are you in swordplay? magic? leadership?”

“well, as for swordplay, i had a lightsaber at home that i played with when i was about ten. for magic, my experience only goes as far as the books by j.k. rowling, and i wasn’t voted head cheerleader,” i said sarcastically as alsmora shot me a look saying, “what’s a lightsaber, who is j.k. rowling, and what does a cheerleader do?”

“hmm.” alsmora rested her head in her hands, deep in thought. “it seems i have my work cut out for me then.”

“it would appear so,” i agreed and leaned back on my elbows.

“then i guess we had better get started!” she said and grabbed my arm.
