Training To Be A Starship Ranger
Hi everyone! Guess what? Now I am not only writing LaurWalk prompts, but a Tup story too! I hope that you all will read this and give me some feedback for it. I want to know what y’all think about this. For right now this is going to be a bit of a story rather than prompts, but if you want prompts too, just comment or message me and let me know!
On the Starship there had been many tutors who were able to teach the children on board the ship basic subjects. This wasnâ€™t training for the academy or anything, just what any normal child on earth would be studying. To be honest, Taz and Up didnâ€™t want their children to become Starship Rangers. They knew too well how dangerous the profession was and did not want their children to have to fight in the places that they used to fight in.
One afternoon, after the childrenâ€™s classes they returned back to their house quarters. Since it still was a Starship they lived on, they stayed in their fatherâ€™s commanderâ€™s quarters. The Starship crew had expanded the room though to make it more of an apartment so that they could raise a family in it.
â€œHola chicos. How was school today?â€ Taz asked as they walked in the door. Over the years she had mellowed out a bit and did not have the temper that she once had.
â€œBoring.â€ Gabriel responded, grabbing an apple from the kitchen before retreating back to his own bedroom.
Taz rolled her eyes at her sonâ€™s actions and turned to her daughter instead. â€œAnd how was your day, hija?â€
â€œIt was alright. Nothing special.â€ She shrugged sitting down on the couch across from her mother. â€œIs dad home yet?â€
â€œNo. Your padre is in a meeting and will be back later. Why?â€
â€œOh just curious.â€ She paused for a moment before continuing, â€œMom whatâ€™s it like to be a Starship Ranger?â€
Taz nearly choked on the water she was drinking. â€œWhy do jou want to know?â€
â€œI donâ€™t know. Iâ€™ve just been wondering.â€
â€œWell it was very dangerous but a lot of fun. It made me tough like jour padre and helped me protect people.â€ She simply said before getting up and retreating to the kitchen to start making some dinner for the night. Rosa just walked to her room and started her homework before it would be time to eat.
Later That Night
Once Up came home it was nearly time to eat, so the whole family sat at the table and dug into their meals. About halfway through dinner Rosa spoke up.
â€œDad, how hard is it to train?â€
â€œTrain for what, darling?â€™â€
â€œTrain to become a Starship Ranger.â€
Both Up and Taz looked up from their meals and gave each other a glance.
â€œUm, Rosa, why is this relevant?â€
â€œWell Iâ€™ve been thinking about it, and I think I want to become a ranger like you guys!â€ The young girl said excitedly.
Both of her parents however did not look as thrilled. Actually both had their eyes widened and mouths opened.
â€œHoney, I donâ€™t think you really want to do that. I think youâ€™d be better off becoming a nurse or something.â€ Up told his daughter, hoping that she would change her mind.
â€œNo, I really want to be a ranger. Iâ€™ve been looking into it and it is really the only thing I want to do. Besides, you two are rangers and can easily get me into the academy. I mean you are the best rangers the Galactic League had ever seen. It says so in all the history books Iâ€™ve read about it.â€
â€œIt is far too dangerous for jou, hija. You can get hurt.â€
â€œI know, but both of you survived and are doing just fine.â€
â€œSi, pero we are the lucky ones. Not everyone is like us.â€
â€œCanâ€™t I just train for a week with you guys and then decide. Iâ€™m old enough to make my own decisions now!â€ She pleaded, giving her father a puppy dog look that she knew would get her whatever she wanted.
Up just sighed. â€œFine. One week of training and wâ€¦â€
â€œARE JOU CRAZY? Jou are going to train our hija?!â€ Taz yelled fuming.
â€œ Tazzy, itâ€™s just one week. Besides, sheâ€™ll learn how hard it is after a week.â€
â€œFine, but if she gets one bruiseâ€¦â€ Taz mumbled obviously upset.
Rosa got up from her seat at the table and gave her a dad a kiss on the cheek. â€œThanks, daddy!â€ She ran off to her room to get things ready for training tomorrow. She knew her parents too well and knew that they were going to go extra hard on her.
Authorâ€™s Note: So, what did you all think? Should I continue? I really do want to continue this, but you have to let me know, or I probably wonâ€™t. Leave any comments/questions/concerns/suggestions, or whatever else and Iâ€™ll try my best to use your advice. Thanks again everyone!
