Alora came out of the council room. You could see how angry she was in her eyes, but as for the rest of her she looked as blank as ever. Braya and Leila looked at her for some sort of explanation as to where Alexis had gone off to. "He left, just a few days ago." Braya let out an annoyed and worried moan.
"Well did you at least find that Sib guy?" Braya asked, putting her hands on her hips.
"No, he left with Alexis." Braya let out a sigh.
"There really isn't anything that we can do, is ther? Well, I'll show Leila around then. Come on," Braya said, leading Leila down the hall.
Alora watched the two leave and then looked around. The main hall was busy, even with most of the members in classes. The majority of the people racing by were those who worked in the library, hustling and bustling around with stacks of datapads in their arms and important records ready to be filed. She decided to visit the library, see what they had added.

The library was her second right. The twin stone doors that stood high above her head were open, as they usually were. She stepped in and marveled at what had been done in her absence. The ceiling had been pushed much higher, making it possible for a little more than ten shelves to be snugly fitted in. Down on the floor were twenty desks, each housing three computers. Almost all of them were in use by the library's staff. At the end of the room was what looked like a white circular table surrounded by cushions. Alora decided to go investigate the "table" and walked past the computers. When she got there she realized how large it was, easily the size of the giant lizard creature Thornax's head. Before she had enough time to examen it the table came to life. A huge hologram of a human female appeared. "Hello, I am Trillion, holder of all files and texts of the Jedi Order. How may I serve you?" the hologram stated.
Alora pondered the question for a moment. "I don't really know. I was looking for something to do."
The hologram smiled warmly. "May I suggest teaching me something? My knowledge is vast, but does not extend to everything. I am especialy lacking in the culture of Tython."
Alora thought for a moment. "How about a story, a fairy tale? I love telling stories."
The hologram smiled even more brightly. "That would be perfect, what story will you be telling me, so I know where to store it."
"Uh..... The Child of Fuzhou."
"Memory Record: The Child of Fuzhou. Category: Fiction. Category Leads to Logic: Off. Saving Under: Culture. Subsave: Fairy Tales." The hologram stated. "Recording Under: Child. Child: Default. State Change Leads to Logic: On." The holo changed into a small child. "Recording: Now."
Alora cleared her throat. "Long ago, in the city of Fuzhou, lived a young human boy. His family was very rich and had a huge house, many slaves and servents, and every pet imagineable. The only thing he didn't have was time with his parents, they were always working. Every day the boy would go down to the kitchen and watch the slaves make all the meals. All of them were happy and joyous while going about their work, which puzzled the boy. He one day asked a kitchen slave, 'Why are you so happy? You have no money! You should be sad, not happy!' The slave only smiled and answered, 'Some things are more important than ones money.' The next day the child asked a different slave, 'Why are you so happy? You have no nice clothes! You should be sad, not happy!' The slave only smiled and said, 'Some things are more important than ones clothes.' The next day he asked yet another slave, 'Why are you so happy?! You have no freedom!! You should be very sad!' And the slave only smiled and said, 'Some things are even more important than freedom.' Now, the child was very confused by this. What could be so imporant that it out weighed money, clothes and even freedom?! And why would his slaves have it and not him?! He wished they no longer had what made them happy. The boy got his wish. The next day his father sold one of the kitchen slaves. The next day everyone in the kitchen was sad. The boy asked the slaves, 'Why are you all so sad now?' The slaves all frowned and answered, 'We have lost what we hold most dear.' The boy didn't understand. 'But you have lost nothing! You have everything that you had yesterday and the day before!' The slaves shook their heads. 'We no longer have all our family.' The moral of this story is that family is more important that material posessions."
The hologram smiled. "That is a very good story, thank you for telling it. I hope you will teach me again soon."
Alora smiled despite herself. "I look forward to teaching you again too." With that Alora left.

((Sorry, that's more of a folk tale. I was rushed when I wrote it. I promise that next time she comes back she'll tell a real fairy tale, Oobie!))

A thought provoking story, Tella, though some might say comfort without freedom is is only the semblance of life. I will ask the talking seal about this.
