A.N. I'm thinking of just "abandoning" this. But only because these are a bunch of one-shots and such, and can be posted alone. There's no theme, or anything. But if any of you (even if it's one person) wants this to be continued, I gladly shall. PLease say so in a review or P.M. me.

"Bwen! Bwen!" little Siri called. "Bwen, where you? Where you hi'ing?"

Six year old Obi-Wan jumped out from where he was. "Siri, it's Obi-Wan, not 'Bwen'."

Siri shook her head. "That wha' I say. Bwen." Siri's eyes began to water. "Aren' I wight, Bwen? Aren' I?"

Obi-Wan frowned thoughtfully. Why not he thought. She's only three. Obi-Wan smiled again. "Yes, Siri. You're right." Obi-Wan started to back away. "Want to play hide-and-seek again?"

Siri giggled and clapped her hands. "Yah! Hi'-an'- see! Hi'-an'- see'!" Obi-Wan ran off to hide, and Siri trotted after, looking for 'Bwen'.

"Wha's yur name?"

Obi-Wan looked up from his drink. "Sorry?" A Rodian was standing in front of him, a blaster in his hand.

"Yur name. What's it?" The Rodain shifted his blaster.

Obi-Wan crossed his arms in front of his chest. "Why do you need to know?"

The Rodian pointed his blaster to a Wookie standing off to the side of the bar. "Tha' Wookie says you look firmiliar. Wants t' know who ya are." The Rodains eyes slightly. "Says that you might be a friend. But I says you don' meet friends in places like this. So who are ya?"

Obi-Wan glanced at the Wookie. His eyes widened slightly. Chewbacca? Was that the Wookie he met on his mission to Kashyyyk? Obi-Wan opened his mouth to tell him, but then logic hit him. I haven't been hiding here for two years to be found. What if someone overhears? What if Chewbacca tells someone I'm here? So as much as it pained him, his mind reeled for a name he could use. Until this time, he hadn't needed one.

Bwen! Bwen! Bwen where you? Where you hi'ng?

"Ben. My name is Ben."
