Mission to Mustafar
Leia shoved the shiny map at her husband. "The Mission to Mustafar is this way," she insisted, pointing at the flimsy.
"No," Han argued as he shifted little Anakin in his arms. "It's past the Big Snowy Mountain."
"Are you blind?" Leia snapped, brushing back a strand of sweat-soaked hair. "We need to head past the Jungle, and then through the tunnel."
"We just came from that way!"
"I wanna go to the Big Snowy Mountain," six year-old Jacen said, tugging at his mother's shirt.
The Princess forced a smile on her face. "You can't go on the Mountain. You're too young."
"What about me?" Jaina asked hopefully.
Leia sighed. "You're too young, too."
"I gotta go wee-wee," Anakin complained.
"Maybe you can go wee-wee in the Jungle," Han muttered under his breath, which made the twins laugh.
"Han!" Leia admonished. "We're going back toward the Jungle, and that's the end of this discussion." She smiled at little Anakin. "You can go wee-wee in a few minutes."
"Not if we go back the way we came," Han grumbled. "You should listen to me… Corellians can't get lost."
"How many times have I heard that?"
"I'm hungry!" Jaina said. "Why can't we eat?"
"Because your father is lost," Leia explained.
"I am not!" Han said loudly, which made Anakin start crying.
"Can we visit daddy's Pirate friends again?" Jacen asked hopefully. "That was fun."
"Those were not my friends," Han informed his eldest son, miffed. "Don't believe everything your mother says."
"My feet hurt and I'm hot," Jaina gripped.
"We'll be there in a little while," Leia said soothingly, then glared at Han. "Now that we're finally going the correct direction… away from the Big Snowy Mountain."
Ten hot minutes later, Leia pointed up in triumph. "Look… the tunnel." She smiled. "Once we're through, all we have to do is head to the right, and we'll be right at Mission to Mustafar."
As they emerged from the tunnel, Han glared at his wife. "This isn't Mission to Mustafar…. it's the Asteroid Belt."
"It must be a different tunnel," Leia muttered, staring at the map.
"The Asteroid Belt?" Jaina whined. "That's boring."
"I like the Asteroid Belt!" Jacen protested.
"I gotta go wee-wee," Anakin repeated so loudly that he drew stares from strangers.
"There's a refresher," Leia said, relieved. "I'll take him."
Han watched his wife leave with Anakin. "How about we find some food?"
"I want a Nerf ice-cone!" Jaina said, pointing to a large umbrella.
"I think your mom will want you to eat food, not sweets."
"I WANNA ICE-CONE!"
"Fine," Han groused. "Come on." After he'd purchased both twins chocolate dipped cones shaped like nerfs, Leia returned with Anakin.
"Han! What are you doing?"
"They wanted something to eat," he said defensively.
"We have lunch reservations at the Lava Pit," Leia pointed out.
"The Lava Pit is at the Mission to Mustafar, and we don't know where that's at, because we made the wrong turn," Han said smugly. "We needed to go past the Big Snowy Mountain."
"I want to go on the Big Snowy Mountain," Jacen informed them firmly.
"I already told you," Leia said tightly. "You're too small."
"Now will you go the way I suggested?" Han grumbled.
"This is still the right direction," Leia insisted, shifting the colorful map around. "We just need to keep going."
"Look," Jaina said, pulling at Han's fingers. "There's something called Raiders of the Lost Jedi… let's go on that!"
"It's Uncle Luke!" Jacen added happily.
Leia moved forward, staring at the advertisement. "That hologram does look a lot like Luke."
"They put Luke's likeness in a ride and not mine?" Han asked, offended.
"You're not a Jedi."
"Whatever," Han grumbled. "We'll go on that after we eat."
"This way," Leia ordered her family as she led them toward a blue castle, which also had a tunnel through the middle of it. "Right there," she said, pointing. "The Mission to Mustafar. And the Lava Pit is right inside."
"Okay! Han snapped. "You were right. Once. Are you happy?"
Leia smiled down at the crowded village. "I'll be much happier once we find our landspeeder."
"We parked it in the Happy Bantha lot," Han said with certainty.
"No, we didn't," Leia disagreed. "We parked it in the Roaring Rancor lot."
"I gotta go poo," Anakin informed them.
"I hate Dizzy Land," Han groused out as they pushed their way through the tightly packed amusement park and headed toward the Mission to Mustafar.
