I don't own Star Wars or any of the characters.
For months Prince Luke Organa and his twin sister, Leia Skywalker, had been searching for their Jedi Master Ahsoka Tano. After months of searching, the twins finally tracked down a reliable lead on Tatooine. Apparently Jabba the Hutt, one of the galaxies most notorious criminals, had information about where the Empire held their prisoners they kept in carbonite. Luke and Leia had devised a plan to infiltrate Jabba the Hutt's palace with help from Han Solo, Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, C-3PO, and R2-D2.
C-3PO and R2-D2 walked through the desert wasteland that was Tatooine. C-3PO didn't know why his master and mistress thought it was a good idea to come back to this backwater planet. The golden protocol droid kept getting sand in his joints and criminals lurked around every corner. But whenever C-3PO complained, R2 would just remind the protocol droid why their masters where there. If C-3PO had been human (or any other sentient species) he would have shot the little blue and white astromech a deadly glare, but instead reminded himself that his masters had a reasonable plan (at least he hoped so anyway) and they would be off this dreadful planet before he started to rust.
R2 beeped and whistled, round dome rotating slightly as he spoke to his fellow droid.
"Of course I'm worried. You should be too. Captain Solo, Lando Calrissian and poor Chewbacca never returned from this place." stated C-3PO.
R2 beeped and whistled some more.
"Don't be so sure. If I told you things about this Jabba the Hutt, you'd probably short circuit." told C-3PO.
The two droids walked up to an enormous palace. C-3PO looked at the metal door that kept them out of the palace, hoping R2 had somehow gotten the coordinates mixed up.
"R2, are you sure this is the place?" asked C-3PO.
R2 assured his fellow droid that his was the place. Raising his hand, C-3PO knocked on the door.
"There doesn't seem to be anyone here. Let's go back and tell Master Luke and Mistress Leia." spoke C-3PO.
A metal pole shot out from the door, catching C-3PO by surprise. The ball at the end of the pole opened, and the voice of none other than Jabba the Hutt came through the speaker. C-3PO, being fluent in over sin billion languages, could unfortunately understand the Huttese fluently, to his own dismay. The Hutt crime lord and protocol droid quickly exchanged words before opening the door to the two droids.
R2 rushed in no questions asked. C-3PO on the other hand was still unsure of this plan his masters had come up with. The two droids did manage to reach Jabba the Hutt's chambers, but not without a bit of interference from the Hutt's personal guard.
Jabba the Hutt sat on his throne, smoking as two droids were brought before him. Like all Hutts, Jabba was a large gastropod with short arms, wide cavernous mouth, huge eyes, and green-tan skin. Jabba gave the droids no mind, until the astromech played the message his masters had given to him.
A holographic image of Luke and Leia appeared before the intergalactic crime lord. The twins were dressed in light coloured Jedi robes they had found in Obi-Wan's hut and tailored to fit them better. Luke's blond hair had recently been cut, while Leia wore her dark locks back in a hip length braid. The Alderaanian prince's blue eyes held a calm gaze, unlike the darker one Leia held in her own brown eyes.
"Greetings, exalted one. Allow me to introduce myself; I am Prince Luke Organa of Alderaan. This is Leia Skywalker, Jedi Knight. We know you have information about the whereabouts of Ahsoka Tano. We wish for an audience so as to discuss a bargain on receiving this information from you." explained Luke.
Jabba was a middle aged Hutt (he had lived for over six centuries) that had been leading his own criminal empire for centuries. The crime lord was no fool. If these two wanted the information he had required on the Empire's prisoners, then they would have to give him something of far greater value.
"As a show of my honesty, I give to you these two droids. Both are harm working and will serve you well. Until then, farewell Mighty Jabba." concluded Luke.
C-3PO was shocked. R2 must have played the wrong message. Surely Master Luke and Mistress Leia would just give him and R2 to such a despicable owner. But when the two droids were dragged deeper and deeper into the depths of Jabba's palace, C-3PO began to think his masters had short circuited with this crazy plan of theirs that had put him in danger, again.
So this is the last story in the Jedi Leia series. Sorry about the shortness of this chapter. I'll try to make the others longer. Comment if you like the story.
