"Daddy?" Carlson whispered as his Daddy tucked him that night.

"Yes, Carlson?" Daddy hoped he wasn't going to ask him to tell one of those amazing stories that Carlson's mommy always told him before bed.

"Will you tell me a story?" Daddy inwardly groaned. He didn't have the skills to tell a tale.

"Sure son. What about?"

"Star Wars?"

"Oh. Of course."

"And Royal Springs of course." Carlson quickly added. Daddy sighed.

"Sure son."

"A long time ago in a galaxy far far away..."

- Royal Springs - A long time ago (literally) -

Cowboy Jedi Carter Carlyle walked inside the General Store where the employee were working behind the counter.

"Yo, bro!" Someone said called out. Ever since Carter found out he was strong with the Cowboy Force he knew this was going to be a great life for him. He would defeat the Kendrick gang and everything would be fine. "Brother?" Carter turned around to see the owner of the store behind the counter.

"Hey! You! You stole my true love!" Carter exclaimed.


"I'm gonna ignite my gun saber." Carter warned. He was skilled with gun sabers now.

"Huh?" Carter ignited it. "Wow."

"I know right? Itís so crazy that I'm a Cowboy Jedi now." The owner straightened to his full height.

"I'm sorry bro."

"Why do you keep calling me that?" Carter asked feeling really confused.

"I am your..."

"Father? I don't wanna be related to guy who's a general store owner." Carter complained. "I wanna--"

"Will you just shut up for a second?" The man yelled. "I'm not your father."

"My cousin?" Carter guessed.


"My second cousin?"

"No," The man said trying to calm his anger. Carter laughed.

"Oh, you must be the black sheep of the family?" The man slapped the counter in fustration.

"No, I'm--"

"My uncle? No that's why too creepy like Lucky Walker." Carter said.

"Lucky? Isn't it Luke Skywalker?"

"Skywalker? That's a dumb name."

"Will you PLEASE let me speak?" Carter leaned against the counter.

"Sure. Why didn't you ask in the first place?" The man closed his eyes.

"I am your brother."

"The end."

"What?! I thought Carter already knew that he was his brother." Daddy blinked.

"Oh yeah. Sorry. Now itís time to go bed Carlson."

"What? You didn't even finish it, Daddy." Carlson whined.

"Sorry kid." Daddy ruffled his hair as he stood up from the bed.

"Mommy!" Carlson called. Mommy came in running.

"What's wrong honey?" She was wearing pajamas already.

"Daddy won't finish the story."

"But its bedtime sweetheart."

"Okay, but this isn't fair." Carlson said still upset.

"Good night."
