Jaina had had a pretty busy day, playing Space Vampires
and trying to break into Anakin's shuttle
and all, but she was bored. She was bored and Jacen wasn't here, so she was going to have to make her own fun. Which meant she had to go exploring.
It was probably best not to ask how she found the entrance into the sewers, except that she had a lot of practice wandering into the lower levels of Coruscant, and this was pretty much the reason she came down here at all. She didn't like it, though. It was boring and it made her want to take a bath and there was something wrong with anything that made her want to do that.
She sighed and thought about giving up and seeing if the ruins of that one building would be any fun, but kept going for a while anyway, just in case
. And she lucked out when she saw the little gremlin, who saw her at the same time, and they both stopped in their tracks. She knew it was a bad idea to go near it, but it looked more scared than harmful, or at least she thought so in all her infinite six-year-old wisdom, so it was probably okay. And
Jacen didn't have one yet and they didn't even have
gremlins back home.
"Wait right there!" she ordered, and took off running to get back to the surface.
She returned some time later with a box
for the gremlin to go in, but it didn't listen to her and wandered off, and no matter how far she kept walking, she couldn't find it again. Finally she gave up and turned around, muttering things about stupid gremlins.
