It's here! You knew it was coming, it's A NOT-SO-NORMAL WEEK 2! After finishing the first A Not-So-Normal Week, (which happens to be my most popular story to date) several readers were disappointed it was over. Truth is, after trying to write another story (which i did complete :D) I found that i really missed A Not-So-Normal Week. So it's back, and hopefully more awesome than ever!
Disclaimer: Fluffy say that i no own star wars. Who's Fluffy? Read on, my friend. ;)
This time, on A Not-So-Normal Week 2: Magazines, opera music, and... invisible bears?
A Not-So-Normal Week 2
Chapter 1: Come Back in Winter
Ahsoka Tano was sprawled out on the couch, bored out of her mind. As usual.
But that was about to end. How? Well, let's find out.
"Ahsoka!" Shouted Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka's master. He walked into the room holding a stack of miscellaneous-looking papers.
Ahsoka hopped off the couch. "What is it?" She asked him.
"Mail's here," Anakin said, handing Ahsoka some of the pile.
Ahsoka took it. There was a couple advertisements from her favorite stores, and a letter from her friend Barriss Offee. But what really caught her attention was a slender magazine at the bottom of the pile. She pulled it out and gasped. "Oh. My. Gosh." She breathed.
"What is it, Ahsoka?" Anakin asked her.
"It's the new issue of 101 Things to Do When You're Bored!" Ahsoka exclaimed in excitement.
"Sweet, finally," Anakin muttered, "that took like, a whole month!"
Ahsoka rolled her eyes. "That's because there's only one new issue per month."
"Oh," Anakin said, blushing slightly in embarrassment.
"Well don't just stand there!" Ahsoka cried. "Let's do something from the magazine!"
Ahsoka opened the magazine to the first page.
She read, 1, make up a silly, rhyming poem about another person in the room.
Anakin and Ahsoka smirked at each other and took out papers and pencils.
Ahsoka thoughtfully chewed her lip as she tried to come up with a good one.
Anakin, on the other hand, started writing furiously, leaving Ahsoka only imagining what he could possibly be writing.
Ahsoka wrote one line- My master's name is Anakin Skywalker, but then with a groan she erased it.
Anakin laughed. "Snips, let it come from your heart. Even funny poems have to come from the heart."
Ahsoka was taken aback. "Uh, I'll try, Skyguy, but that sounded really weird coming from you." Suddenly her eyes lit up with an idea; and she began to scribble in her own, unreadable handwriting.
Several minutes later, Ahsoka set down her pencil. "Done!" She declared.
"Cool, me too!" Anakin replied, "You go first."
Clearing her throat, Ahsoka held up her paper and began to read,
"He is my master,
"He is not a mannequin,
"But I can run faster.
"He's weird and he's kooky,
"All that and more,
"He's really kind of spooky,
"And he likes the candy store.
"So that is my poem,
"About my friend,
"And now you can show him,
"That this is my poem's end."
Ahsoka ended by bursting out laughing hysterically.
Anakin frowned at her. "My poem will be way better, and you know why?"
Ahsoka put her hands on her hips. "Why?"
Anakin beamed. "'Cause I've turned it into a song!"
The lights dimmed and a bright, blue spotlight shone down on him. A curtain pulled back, revealing Kit Fisto's monkey orchestra wearing suits and dark sunglasses.
Anakin put on some sunglasses as well and Force pulled a microphone to himself.
The monkeys began to play smooth, jazz-type music.
"Ohhhhh-oh-oh-oh," Anakin began to sing, "Yeaaaaaaaaaah, oh yeah…
"I have a Padawan,
"Her name is Ahsoka,
"Her name isn't Ron,
"And don't give her a mocha,
"'Cause she can't,
"Take the caffeine."
He paused to snap his fingers for a few seconds while the monkeys played more music, crescendo-ing into a saxophone solo.
"Her eyes are bright and blue,
"Just like blue rocks,
"And her skin is orange it's true,
"Just like my new socks," Anakin held up his foot to show his bright orange socks,
"So now, I am here to tell you,
"That I'm her master and she's my Padawan, too,"
"Ooh, whoa, ooh whoaaaaaaaaaa,"
He began to get louder as his song was ending,
"And, my, hair. Isn't… BLUUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEE!"
The monkeys ended the song with a loud tuba note.
Ahsoka clapped and cheered tremendously. "That was beautiful!" She exclaimed.
"Thank you, thank you," Anakin said, Ahsoka still clapping. He took a bow.
Ahsoka giggled. "That was fun."
The monkeys all left.
"Yes, most definitely." Anakin agreed. "Should we do another one?"
"Sure." Ahsoka scanned down the page to find the second thing. She read, 2, attach a rocket to a skateboard and ride it in a hallway.
"That sounds like fun!" Anakin exclaimed.
"Then let's do it!" Ahsoka replied.
The two got a skateboard and attached a small rocket to it.
"Snips, that's not a big enough rocket!" Anakin said with a frown, looking at the tiny, three-inch-long rocket.
Ahsoka put her hands on her hips. "Well what do you suggest?"
Anakin darted into the closet and came out with a humongous rocket over three feet long and strapped it to the skateboard.
"Are you sure that isn't just a little too much?" Ahsoka asked him.
"Nonsense!" Anakin cried. "You wanna try it first?"
"Perfect!" Anakin slapped a helmet on her head and strapped her onto the skateboard.
"Wait!" Ahsoka cried, but Anakin didn't listen, he lit the rocket. "Are you sure this is- ?" The rocket took off and sent Ahsoka speeding down the Jedi Temple hallway.
She whizzed past several Jedi, earning screams and gasps from them all.
It got faster, and faster… Ahsoka pulled out her comlink while on it. "How do you stop this thing?" She shouted.
But she didn't get to hear an answer, because the skateboard crashed violently into a large pile of boxes, and the rocket exploded with a tremendous BOOOOM!
Anakin ran down the halls to catch up. "Wow, that thing is fast!" He exclaimed, reaching out his hand to help his dazed and dizzy Padawan off the ground.
"Ohhhhh," Ahsoka moaned, "Master… there's… three of you," She shook her head rapidly to clear her dizziness. "Next time, you are taking the test run."
Anakin chuckled. "Fair enough. Should we do something else in the magazine?"
"Not yet, I want to rest a little first. I'm still dizzy." Ahsoka said.
"Alright. Let's go and take a break." So they want back to their shared quarters to rest.
Meanwhile… in Kit Fisto's quarters…
"Ah monkeys, don't you just love November?" He asked his monkeys as he cheerily washed some dishes. Wearing his lacy pink apron and maid's hat, Kit happily scrubbed a china plate. There was seemingly nothing that could put a damper on his smiley mood.
One of the monkeys, who was coloring a picture, said something to him in 'monkey language' (or whatever you want to call it).
"Yes, Freddie," Kit said, turning around. His sponge dripped warm soapy water on the ground. "I would certainly say cowboys played ring-around-the-rosie."
The monkey, Freddie, thanked him and continued coloring.
Kit turned back around and began to sing "Jingle Bells" opera-style while he washed a large pot.
Meanwhile, in Mace Windu's quarters… (which happened to be right next to Kit's)
Mace Windu was trying to read a book, when he heard loud, opera singing coming from next door. Kit.
Mace growled angrily and stormed out of his room. He knocked furiously on Kit's door.
Kit opened the door, still wearing his apron and holding his dripping sponge. "Ah, Mace! What brings you here?" He asked, flashing him a broad smile.
"What is that sickening racket I was hearing?" Mace shouted.
"Sickening racket?" Kit paused to listen. "I don't hear anything."
"Well I know it was coming from over here." Mace said.
Kit shrugged. "You just let me know if you hear it again, ok?" He smiled again.
Mace frowned. "Fine. Have a nice day." Kit shut the door and Mace began to walk away slowly.
Kit went back to the sink and began to sing again. Less than two seconds later, he heard knocking.
"I heard it again!" Mace shouted as Kit opened the door.
"I don't hear anything." Kit said, listening again.
Mace turned purple in anger. He stormed away.
Kit shrugged, shut the door, and began to sing again. Mace knocked again. "IT'S BACK!" He shouted in Kit's face.
"Look, Master Windu, I don't hear anything, so maybe you should ask your other neighbor." Kit said. He smiled the biggest smile ever. "And have a wonderful day!"
Mace clenched his teeth. "Yeah right, some wonderful day I'm having," He muttered to himself.
Kit began to sing again and started to dry his just washed dishes.
Mace went to his other neighbor's door and knocked. His other neighbor was Shaak Ti.
Shaak Ti opened the door and smiled. "Master Windu! What brings you to my quarters?" She motioned inside, where the walls were covered in pictures of puppies and posters of other animals. Magazines about veterinarians were all over the floor and on her bed.
"I want to know what that wretched racket is!" Mace gestured to the horrible opera singing in the air.
"I have no idea what that is." Shaak said. "But I do know that you need some green tea." the Togrutan Jedi Master handed Mace a mug of steamy green liquid.
Mace tasted it and coughed. "Master Ti, this is seaweed."
"Well, seaweed's green isn't it?" Shaak answered.
Mace rolled his eyes. "You know what, forget it." He said, and he went back to his quarters and put in earplugs as the annoying opera singing went on.
Meanwhile… back in Anakin and Ahsoka's quarters…
After resting for a while, our dynamic duo were ready for action once again.
"What's the next thing in the magazine, Ahsoka?" Anakin asked his Padawan.
"Hmmm," Ahsoka hummed as she scanned the page. She read, 3, annoy someone by spraying fake cheese in their face.
Anakin started laughing.
Ahsoka made a face. "Ewww, I hate fake cheese. It's so…" She shuddered, "I just hate it."
"Well, who are we going to annoy with it?" Anakin asked.
The two suddenly smirked at each other, knowing exactly what the other was thinking. "Obi-Wan!" They cried in unison.
Knock, knock, knock! Obi-Wan was sipping some blueberry tea, enjoying a peaceful day. No one had annoyed him at all. He was loving it. But when he heard those three knocks at the door, his blood suddenly ran cold.
Fearing the worst, Obi-Wan bit his lip and opened the door.
Anakin and Ahsoka were standing there with two spray cans. They sprayed them in his face, blacking out his vision with gooey, salty, orange stuff. The two started laughing hysterically.
Obi-Wan spluttered and spit out the gross fake cheese. "Anakin and Ahsoka! What did you do that for?" Obi-Wan shouted.
"Are you annoyed, Master Kenobi?" Ahsoka asked him with a smile.
Obi-Wan turned red in anger and wiped off all the cheese. "Can you see? Of course I'm annoyed!" Obi-Wan yelled in her face.
Ahsoka smiled brighter. "Perfect! It worked, Master!"
Anakin was still laughing. "Tell me about it! That was hysterical!"
"You're both insane." Obi-Wan said to them, and he slammed his door.
But what he didn't know was Anakin's tunic had gotten stuck in the door. "Hey! Obi-Wan, open the door!" Anakin exclaimed, knocking furiously.
Obi-Wan, inside the room, crossed his arms. "No. Go away!"
"But, Obi-Wan!" Anakin wailed.
Ahsoka ignited her lightsaber. "There are other ways to do it." She carefully lowered her lightsaber and was about to cut the piece of tunic from the door, when suddenly Mace came running.
"Padawan Tano!" He exclaimed. "What do you think you're doing, trying to kill your Master?"
"W-What?" Ahsoka cried. "I'm not trying to kill him!"
"I've caught you red handed." Mace said.
"Um, Master Windu, her hands are orange." Anakin said. "And she wasn't trying to kill me."
"Yes she was! She needs to go to the Republic jail!" Mace exclaimed.
"What?" Ahsoka and Anakin exclaimed in unison.
But Yoda came in at that moment. "Master Window! Trying to do, what are you?"
"IT'S WINDU!" Mace shouted louder than ever.
"He was trying to take Ahsoka to jail!" Anakin said.
Yoda looked confused. "Do what did she?"
"Nothing." Anakin said.
"Master Window, unacceptable is this behavior! To jail, you must go!" Yoda said.
"But I didn't do anything!" Mace wailed.
But at that moment, Plo Koon runs in. "Dudes, what's going on?"
Everyone starting talking at once.
"Master Windu tried to take me to jail!" Exclaimed Ahsoka.
"Yoda tried to take me to jail!" Cried Windu.
"I'm hungry!" Wailed Anakin.
Obi-Wan suddenly opens his door, freeing Anakin's tunic. "WHAT IS GOING ON?"
Yoda started walking away.
"Yoda, where are you going?" Mace asked him.
"Chaos there is too much of. Coming back in winter I am." Yoda said.
"That's a long time from now." Ahsoka pointed out.
But Yoda just made a short "humph!", showing them that he was ignoring them, and he walked away.
The rest of them stood in silence for a whole minute.
Finally, Obi-Wan said, "So what ever was going on?"
Everyone started talking at once. Again.
But this time, you couldn't even hear anyone in the babble.
"Everyone just SHUT UP!" Obi-Wan screamed. "Forget I ever asked!" And he ran back into his quarters and shut the door.
Plo shrugged. "Well, see ya later dudes." He said, and he left.
Mace frowned. "I'm leaving too. But I'm watching you two." He said, and he stared at Anakin and Ahsoka as he walked away backwards- until he hit a trash can. He groaned and walked swiftly away.
That left Anakin and Ahsoka standing alone in the hallway.
"Hey Master, is that a baby polar bear?" Ahsoka asked out of the blue.
"Polar bear?" Anakin echoed. "I don't see a polar bear."
"It's over there," Ahsoka pointed down the hallway.
"There's nothing there, Ahsoka." Anakin said.
"Yes there is! I see it." Ahsoka protested.
"You're seeing things, Snips. Let's go back to our quarters, you've obviously had enough adventures for one day." Anakin said.
"But it's really there, Master!" Ahsoka protested.
"Look, Ahsoka, I know you're a little kooky, but if you're hallucinating, maybe we should consider going to the Healers." Anakin said, putting a hand on her shoulder.
Ahsoka shook her head. "It's really there." She repeated. She started calling out, "Here little polar bear, come here! It's ok, I'm not going to hurt you," She started petting the air.
"Snips, are you feeling alright?" Anakin asked her, starting to get worried.
Ahsoka looked up from the 'polar bear' and pursed her lips. "Skyguy, I'm completely fine. Can't you see the polar bear?" she bent back down. "Why don't you go show Master Skyguy you're real."
Anakin frowned. "Ahsoka, I'm serious-" Suddenly Anakin felt something hit his leg. "What was that?" He cried.
"It's the polar bear." Ahsoka said, petting it again. "You're sooooo cute!" She said to it.
"It's- it's invisible!" Anakin said. He bent down and indeed felt the soft fur. He felt a cold, wet nose nuzzle on his face. "This can't be possible. Polar bears aren't invisible."
"It's not invisible." Ahsoka said.
"Yes it is." Anakin replied.
"Then how come I can see it?" Ahsoka protested.
"I don't know. Maybe it doesn't want me to see it." Anakin said.
"Can I keep it?" Ahsoka asked.
"Well, I don't know…"
"Please?" Ahsoka pleaded.
"Fine, but if it causes any trouble, we're getting rid of it." Anakin said.
"YAY!" Ahsoka exclaimed. "I'm going to name you Fluffy." She said to the polar bear.
Anakin heard a soft purr come from the polar bear and he sighed as they went back to their quarters.
Ahsoka brought Fluffy inside and showed her around. The Padawan then grabbed a bowl and put some fish in it. "Do you like fish?" She asked the little bear.
She heard a little noise back, knowing the bear was agreeing. "Good." Ahsoka said.
Anakin sighed and crossed his arms. How could a polar bear be invisible? That's not possible. And moreover, how could Ahsoka see it? He watched in astonishment as the fish suddenly disappeared as the bear ate them. Maybe he was the one going crazy.
Ahsoka noticed him staring into space. "What's the matter, Master?" She asked him.
"Oh, nothing," Anakin said, "I just can't understand why I can't see the bear and you can."
Ahsoka chuckled. "It's ok, Fluffy still likes you." She bent down to ruffle the bear's fur. "Isn't that right Fluffy?" She cooed. Fluffy purred in agreement.
Anakin rolled his eyes. "Yeah, whatever," he sighed, "sometimes I wonder which of us is crazier."
Ahsoka looked up from Fluffy. "You're not implying we do another one of those crazy insanity contests are you? I'm not doing that again."
"No, no, I was just wondering." Anakin said.
Ahsoka shrugged. "Whatever you say."
Anakin smiled. "Guess what?"
"What?" Ahsoka asked.
"We're going somewhere tomorrow." Anakin said with a grin.
Ahsoka paled. "Please, please tell me it's not a Slimy Fish concert."
Anakin laughed. "Definitely not, don't worry. But you're really going to like it."
"What will we do with Fluffy?" Ahsoka asked.
"You can ask one of your friends to take care of him." Anakin said.
"Master, Fluffy's a girl." Ahsoka said, putting her hands on her hips.
"Oops! Sorry, your friends can take care of her." Anakin corrected himself.
"That's better. I'll call Barriss and ask her if she can take care of her." Ahsoka said. She pulled out her cell phone. "Hello? Barriss? This is Ahsoka… yeah… uh huh, I was wondering if you could take care of my new pet polar bear. … yeah, I know, I just found her today, Master Skywalker said I could keep her. Yep, ok. Thank you so much. Yeah, I don't know how long it will be, but all you have to do is feed her some fish. Yeah, ok thank you again! See you tomorrow!" Ahsoka hung up. "She can do it!"
"That's great. Now let's eat dinner, we need to pack." Anakin said.
"Pack? For what?" Ahsoka said.
"You'll see." Anakin said with a grin.
I hope you enjoyed the first chapter of A Not-So-Normal Week 2! Stay tuned for Chapter 2!
