Chapter 1: Not A Party Without Food
"Anakin, slow down or else you'll choke."
With his mouth still stuffed with food, the young padawan grinned foolishly at the older jedi.
"Ith's yuhmmy. Thry sohm mahster."
"No thank you Anakin. And please don't talk with food in your mouth," Obi-Wan instructed. Placing the tips of his fingers together, Obi-Wan leaned forward in his chair and gazed at Anakin with a raised eyebrow. "What happened to all those numerous lessons on etiquette that I taught you? Anakin—"
"I try master," the teenage boy replied as he swallowed the food.
"I'm sure you do Anakin," sighed Obi-Wan as he leaned back in his chair.
Suddenly Anakin started choking on the drumstick -or whatever food he was chewing on. Obi-Wan glanced at his padawan and rolled his eyes.
"I told you."
Obi-Wan and Anakin both glanced up at the jedi staring curiously at them.
"Are you two okay?" Mace Windu inquired.
"Hehe... Yeah, we're great."
It was Obi-Wan's birthday and the jedi had invited a small number of close jedi friends to celebrate with at the apartment he shared with Anakin. The guest chattered politely to one another and the dinner seemed to be going on fine until-
"Must be more food," Anakin cried joyfully even though he was choking a few seconds earlier. "I'll go get it."
The jedi excused himself and trotted over to the door.
"I think we have enough food Anakin," Obi-Wan said as Anakin returned with another box of pizza to add to the already full table.
"Anakin, how much food did you order?" Obi-Wan inquired curiously as he furrowed his brow.
"Um... Not too much master."
Obi-Wan rose from his chair and said, "I'll go get it."
"No, it's okay," shouted Anakin as he rushed toward the door.
"Just stay there and relax, master."
Anakin opened the door and was faced with a crowd full of shouting delivery people.
"Your 10 meter sub sir!"
"Here is the sushi you ordered!"
"I have your fish heads!"
The delivery people yelled angrily as they continued to shove each other, trying to reach Anakin first.
"One at a time," Anakin ordered.
"I was here before you!" A delivery person hollered, punching the nearest person.
Punching and kicking, the delivery people were causing quite a commotion in the jedi temple. Soon food was being tossed through the air as the delivery people engaged in battle.
"Hey, we still have to eat that!" Anakin yelled angrily.
A jedi passing by stared open mouthed at the raging crowd grouped around Obi-Wan's door.
"Anakin are you alright?" Obi-Wan called from inside.
"Yes master," the boy shouted back as a fish head was flung into his face.
