Author's Note: I got the idea for this silly little story from watching a vampire movie last night. It's supposed to be humorous.

Anakin Skywalker silently opened his bedroom door and snuck out into the apartment he shared with his Master. It was way past his bedtime, around two AM and all good little padawans were supposed to be in beddy-bye land. But he wasn't a good Padawan, no. He was a vampire!

Creeping on tiptoes, Anakin snuck up to his Master's bedroom door and opened it. Obi-Wan was sleeping in his bed, one arm dangling off the edge of the bed. Anakin paused a moment, waiting to see if Obi-Wan would sense his presence and wake up.

Obi-Wan continued to sleep.

Anakin walked closer, his steps light as air. He stopped next to his Master's bed and gazed down at the sleeping man.

Obi-Wan continued to sleep.

Bunching up his muscles, Anakin leaped on top of Obi-Wan and opened his mouth wide to show off his long, gleaming fangs. His Master's eyes flew open.

"Anakin! Stop playing your pranks! I'm trying to get some sleep!"

"But I'm a vampire!" Anakin protested. "You were supposed to get scared!"

"Go to your room or no more vampire holodramas for you!" Obi-Wan ordered, a grumpy expression on his face.

Grumbling, Anakin went to his room.


The next night Anakin crept out of his bedroom again. He went into the refresher and examined himself in the mirror. His eyes were glowing an eerie red and his fangs were nice and long. Why hadn't it scared Obi-Wan? Perhaps if he added sound effects to the visual effects it would work better.

Leaving the refresher, Anakin crept up to his Master's bedroom door and slipped inside. He paused, waiting to see if Obi-Wan sensed his presence. His Master was lying on his back, snoring.

Obi-Wan continued to sleep.

Anakin crept up to the bed and stared down at his snoring Master.

Obi-Wan continued to sleep.

With a snarl, Anakin leapt atop his Master, his mouth open wide and hissing. Obi-Wan's eyes flew open and glared at him.

"Anakin! Are you still with this stupid prank?!"

Determined to scare Obi-Wan, Anakin hissed louder and attempted to open his mouth wider. Something in his jaw made a cracking sound. "Ow!"

"Go to your room!"

Muttering and rubbing at his jaw, Anakin went to his room.


It was the third night and Anakin had decided to try and scare Obi-Wan one last time. If it didn't work this time, he would have to think up something else. The vampire gag had been a hit with the other padawans, so why was his Master so difficult to please? He snuck up to his Master's door and silently slipped in. The moonlight was shining through Obi-Wan's bedroom window onto his bed. All Anakin could see of his Master was a huddled shape under the sheet. He paused, waiting to see if his Master would sense his presence.

Obi-Wan continued to sleep.

Anakin crept up to the bed.

Obi-Wan continued to sleep.

Anakin leaped on top of his Master's sleeping form, hissing loudly to scare him.

The sheet was thrown off and Anakin screamed in fright. A hideous hairy beast was sleeping in his Master's bed! It had angry red eyes, a long snout full of razor sharp teeth and was covered in thick dark hair. The creature snarled and reached for him with long fingers that had wicked claws on the tips.

"AAAAHHHHH!" Anakin raced from the room and locked himself in his bedroom.

Obi-Wan chuckled as he removed the werewolf mask and fake hands he had bought at the same joke shop Anakin had got his fake fangs and glowing contact lenses from. He sensed he would be enjoying a full nights sleep for at least a few weeks. 

The End?
