Jingle Bells

"So…" Siri caught up to him in the hall. "Did you tell Master Yaddle?"

Obi-Wan avoided her gaze. "She laughed at me."

Padawan Siri Tachi shrugged and gave Kenobi a comforting pat on the back. "My Master scolded me with some of the more colorful language I thought only I picked up on missions. Said I was being a disrespectful—"

She caught herself and blushed. "Um…"

He stopped at one window overlooking Coruscant's streets. "Do you think they're doing it to themselves?"

The blonde coughed back a laugh. "And toying with some Padawans about a specific person doing it? I think that would be a little much, even for Master Halcyon."

Obi-Wan snorted. They all knew the rumors about Jedi Knight Nejaa Halcyon. "I doubt th…"

A reflection in the window caught both of the Padawans' attention. The glanced at each other and turned around.

Siri snickered, and Obi-Wan had to cough horrendously to avoid doing the same. "Oh, my!" He gasped. "Pardon, Master!"

"Good morning, Master Yaddle!" called Master Ki-Adi-Mundi. Obi-Wan saw Master Billaba beside him, attentive to her fellow Master.

Yaddle snorted and continued down the hall to the Council chambers.
