A Not-So-Normal Week 2
Chapter 21: To Break a Spell
It was morning.
Anakin woke up and went to the throne room. All the little pink marshmallow bunnies were waiting for him.
"Good morning, my subjects!" Anakin said.
"Good morning, your Majesty." They replied.
"Fetch me some breakfast. I would like unicorn toast with jelly." Anakin told them.
"Yes, Sire." Said the chef, and he ran off.
"Hm, I wonder where Ahsoka is," Anakin murmured to himself.
The tiny bunny tugged at his tunic. "She went for a long walk. She said she won't be back until tonight."
"Oh, ok." Anakin said.
"Here's your unicorn toast." Said the chef.
"I changed my mind. I'll just eat some candy!" Anakin said. He hopped up and grabbed a bag of chocolate balls. Then he went to see Kit. "Morning, Kit!"
"Ah, morning, Skywalker!" Kit said happily. "I was just feeding my monkeys."
Anakin saw all the monkeys eating the exotic purple bananas of this planet. "Cool!"
"What should we do today?" Kit asked.
Anakin thought for a moment. "We claim it National Tofu Day, that's what!" He declared.
"Tofu Day?" Kit exclaimed.
"Yep. Tofu with jelly is the best." Anakin said. "Have a good day!"
Anakin left Kit's room and went outside to the podium, where he called all the citizens together.
"Greetings citizens! I, your king, declare this to be National Tofu Day! Eat tofu, and be merry!" Anakin cried.
All the citizens cheered.
Meanwhile… back inside…
"I cannot wait until tonight to spring our plan." Said the tiny bunny as they regrouped in the employee closet.
"I know. Let's do it NOW." Said the leader.
The one wearing an aviator hat raised his hand. "What if he doesn't cooperate with us."
An evil smirk spread across the leader bunny's face. "We have ways of… motivating him…" he glanced over at Ahsoka, their sleeping captive, and cackled menacingly.
A few minutes later, in the throne room…
Anakin was munching on some tofu, enjoying his life as king. That's when he saw all the marshmallow bunnies march into the room.
"Join the party!" He cried, tossing them some tofu.
The leader bunny caught the tofu, and crushed it.
"Hey, what was that for?" Anakin asked.
"You will work for us, now, Skywalker." Said the leader bunny. They all charged at Anakin and dragged him away. They threw him in the back of a little pink mail truck and drove him away.
As he was trapped in the back, he found a tied up sack. It was kind of heavy, and slamming into him every time the truck made a sharp turn. So he decided to untie it.
It was Ahsoka.
"Ahsoka?" Anakin cried, shaking her madly. He banged on the window to the front seat. "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO HER?"
"What we're going to do to you if you don't cooperate!" The leader bunny shouted. "Now be quiet!"
Anakin held Ahsoka in his arms. He didn't know what was wrong with her. He didn't even know if she was still alive.
"I've got to find her pulse," He said to himself. He put his fingers to her neck, and felt the slow, constant thump of her pulse. He breathed a sigh of relief.
The bunnies in the front were talking and laughing. "I can't believe we succeeded. I mean, these guys are Jedi."
"Yeah!" Laughed the tiny one. "And we're made of marshmallow!"
The one with the aviator hat thought for a moment. "Do you think that green guy and the monkeys will be a problem?"
"I don't think so." Said the leader. "We'll leave him. After all, he's not a fairy."
"Is that why you're after us?" Anakin asked, tapping the window. "We're not really fairies, you know! We're under a spell!"
"I said QUIET!" Shouted the leader.
Anakin sighed. He looked at Ahsoka, and gently ran the back of his hand against her cheek. "Hold on, Ahsoka, I'll save you. Just hold on."
Meanwhile… back inside the palace…
Kit was taking his monkeys for a walk. "It is such a wonderful day. And with it being Tofu Day and all, it's even more wonderful!"
He whistled and skipped, his monkeys following.
Suddenly he spotted the door to the employee closet. It was ajar. He peeked in. No one was there.
"Oh, what a lovely little room!" He said, looking around. "Deadly dust, pictures with evil red lines through them, Ahsoka's lightsabers on the counter-" he paused, trying to realize what he just said. "wait a second… Ahsoka's lightsabers?"
He picked up the two silvery weapons. "I knew she was a little crazy, but I never would've thought she was careless enough to leave her lightsabers just lying around."
Kit set down the 'sabers and picked up the container which was sitting next to the weapons. It was labeled "sleeping dust", but it was empty.
"Wow, I guess someone was really desperate to get some sleep last night." He murmured. He turned to his monkeys. "What do you think happened?"
The monkey named Iggy called Walter and Penny to him and whispered in "Monkey language" to them.
Then they began to act it out. Penny took the lightsabers, as well as some face paint, and made herself look like Ahsoka.
Iggy and Walter pressed her down, then Iggy took the container and pretended to put sleeping dust on Penny.
"Ohhh, you think that someone captured Ahsoka and used the sleeping dust on her?" Kit asked.
"Very interesting, I always knew you were smart monkeys. But that theory means that there must be some bad guy around here, and as we saw, it's nothing but a marshmallow candy fairy land." Kit said.
But the monkeys insisted.
"Let's find Anakin- I mean, King Skywalker; and ask him." Kit suggested.
So he and his monkeys began to search the whole castle for Anakin. He was nowhere to be found.
"That's strange." Kit murmured. That's when he saw that the pink mail truck was missing. The tracks led off into the deep, dark forest. There was nothing for miles in that direction, according to what Kit knew. "Let's check it out." He said.
So the monkeys piled into the back of a small motor-wagon (it's like a motorcycle, but instead of being made from a bike, it's made from a wagon.) and they sped off.
Back with the bunnies…
The pink mail truck continued to drive through the dark forest, bumping on every sparkly rock and twisted turquoise tree trunk.
Finally they drove into some sort of camp, where people who were seemingly being used as slaves were toiling away, tending to purple plants or building magic wands.
The bunnies kicked Anakin out of the truck and locked Ahsoka up.
"You, fairy, will work in this camp. FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!" Shouted the leader bunny.
"Why would you want me to do that?" Anakin asked.
"Because we do. So there." The marshmallow bunny stuck his tongue out at Anakin and left, taking Ahsoka with him in the pink mail truck. They went a little ways off, but still in the camp, and locked Ahsoka away in the camp dungeon.
Anakin found all the other fairies working.
"Cool! A new guy!" They cheered.
An old, wrinkled fairy woman came up to Anakin. "Greetings, young and strong one. We are in need of more fairy magic."
"Fairy magic?" Anakin asked, confused.
"Yes, you do have fairy magic, do you not?" She asked.
"I don't know what you are talking about. I and my Padawan were turned into fairies accidentally by magic dust." Anakin said.
They all gasped. "Then you are not a real fairy! This camp is for real fairies only. Without fairy magic, you can't make magic wands, or make the purple plants grow."
"Well, I don't want to be a fairy anymore, and neither does my Padawan. But they've done something to her. She won't wake up." Anakin said worriedly.
"Probably sleeping dust." The old fairy stated.
"Is there a cure?" Anakin asked.
"I… I don't know. I can't remember." Said the old fairy. "We'll figure it out later. Right now, you need to go and prove that you aren't a real fairy. Then they will let you, and your Padawan, go."
"Okie dokie." Anakin said.
He walked up to the "town hall" of the camp and knocked.
"Get back to work!" Shouted the bunny.
"But I'm not a real fairy!" Anakin cried.
"What?" The bunny came out and inspected Anakin. "you look like a real fairy."
"Well I'm not."
"That's just an excuse. Get back to work." The bunny went back inside and slammed the door.
Kit was bumping along in the slow motor-wagon. They were getting there, slowly. "I wish I would'a brought my GPS!" He exclaimed.
Back at the camp…
Anakin was trying for the third time to get the bunnies to believe he wasn't a real fairy. He'd tried everything.
"FINE!" Cried the leader bunny in exasperation. "We'll give you this neutralizing dust. If you really aren't a fairy, it will return you to normal. If you are a fairy, it won't work."
So the bunny sprinkled it on Anakin. Anakin's wings disintegrated into sparkles.
"Oh. Wow, you really weren't a fairy." The bunny said.
"So can I go?" Anakin asked.
"Where's my Padawan?"
"Oh," Said the evil bunny, "you can't take her."
"WHAT?" Anakin screamed. "Why not!"
"We need her for… experiments." The bunny replied.
"I will not let you keep my Padawan!" Anakin declared.
"She's under a spell of eternal sleep. She's of no use to you anymore." The bunny said, and he led Anakin away.
Anakin had tears in his eyes. Did that mean Ahsoka was, basically, dead?
"Get him back to the palace. But he isn't king anymore. Let him get his stuff and leave." The leader bunny instructed the one with the aviator hat, who was driving.
The bunny with the aviator hat nodded, and drove away with Anakin in the back.
Once back in the town square, Anakin sat on a bench, depressed.
A little kid who lived in this village came up to him. The kid was a small gumdrop. "Why are you crying, Sir?"
"My Padawan is gone. Basically dead." He said, sniffing.
"Why aren't you trying to find her?"
"They won't let me." The tears increased. "She was one of my best friends. Ok, she was my best friend. I don't know what I'll do without her."
"You should keep persevering, and find her." Said the little gumdrop.
"I have no way to get back to the camp, it's miles away." Anakin said.
"We can help you." The gumdrop said. Several more gumdrop children popped out from behind trees and bushes.
Anakin smiled. "Yes! Let's save Ahsoka!"
Five minutes later…
"This is your idea. Walk there?" Anakin cried.
"We don't have a car." The gumdrop said.
Anakin sighed, and they continued to walk.
The fairies continued to toil away in the hot sun, working endlessly.
"I really wish there was something more we could've done for that guy. The strange girl the bunnies dragged in is still in the dungeon." Said one of the fairies.
"What else could we have done? She is under the spell of eternal sleep. There is no way to break it." Replied a second fairy.
"I thought for sure there was a way." Said the old fairy.
"You're delusional. The spell of eternal sleep has never been broken. And it never will be." A gruff fairy man said.
And they all went back to work.
"Phew! I… made… it!"
It was Kit, who had finally arrived with his monkeys.
"Alright, evildoers! Unhand Skywalker and Tano!" He held out his lightsaber. "Or else!"
"Skywalker has already proven himself not to be a fairy, and has been set free." Said one of the fairies.
"Oh, really… well, what of Padawan Tano?" Kit asked.
They all looked solemn. "She is under the spell of eternal sleep, locked away in the dungeon."
"Dungeon? Eternal sleep?" Kit cried. He ran to the dungeon and burst through the door.
The guard stopped him. "Hey, who said you could get in here?"
"I'm here to rescue Padawan Tano." He stated simply.
"Why would you want to rescue her? Once under the spell of eternal sleep, one is useless." The guard said.
Kit shrugged. "We'll find a way." He grabbed Ahsoka and slung her around his shoulders, then brought her to the motor-wagon and began the long, slow journey back to the palace (with his monkeys of course).
Back with Anakin and the gumdrops…
"I'm hungry." Anakin said. "Can I eat one 'a you?"
The gumdrops frowned. "No. You can't eat us." they said.
"Aw man." Anakin said sadly.
Suddenly they all heard a faint noise in the distance. They all froze.
Kit's motor-wagon came rolling around the corning, slower than a snail.
"Kit!" Anakin cried. "You found Ahsoka!" Anakin took Ahsoka and lay her on the ground. He knelt in front of her.
The gumdrops gathered around.
"What do we do now?" Anakin asked. "There's got to be a way to break this spell."
"Kiss her!" Cried the gumdrops.
"EWWW!" Anakin screamed. "No way. No way. NO WAY. I am NOT going to ever in the galaxy kiss my Padawan. That is utterly disgusting and I WILL NOT DO IT."
"But it always works! You kiss your true love, and she's ok!" The gumdrop said.
"I'm not her true love! I'm married!"
Everyone stared at him. Even all the monkeys.
"I mean… I mean I'm hairy. Why would she ever want to love someone so ugly." Anakin tried to correct himself.
"Well I'm out of ideas." The gumdrop pouted.
As everyone debated what they should do, Anakin looked on his arms. They were sparkling. That's when he realized he must still have some of that neutralizing dust on him. And if it worked on him…
"Guys! I figured out how we can break these spells on Ahsoka!" Anakin exclaimed. He found as much dust as he could, and brushed it all onto Ahsoka.
The dust began to engulf Ahsoka in bright, purple sparkles. The wings disappeared. Her entire body lit up. And then, the light faded.
It seemed nothing happened.
Anakin closed his eyes sadly.
Ahsoka sat up and yawned. She rubbed her eyes. "Good morning, everyone." She mumbled drowsily.
"Ahsoka! You're alive!" Anakin cried. He hugged Ahsoka tight.
"Yes, I'm alive. I've just had the strangest dream…" She trailed off.
Anakin laughed. "I bet you did. Now come on, let's go home."
They asked the gumdrops if any of them had more neutralizing dust. One yellow one did, so she ran home to get some. They thanked the gumdrops for their help.
But then there was their ship to deal with…
"Excuse me, gumdrops, but would you happen to know of a ship we could borrow?" Anakin asked.
"Better yet!" Cried the blue one, "we'll fix this one for you!"
The gumdrops began to bounce around the ship, covering it in rainbow magic sparklies. The ship was all of a sudden no longer broken.
"Wow! Thank you!" Anakin exclaimed.
They all thanked the gumdrops and said goodbye, then boarded the ship.
Anakin wanted to use the GPS, but Ahsoka calmly asked him not to. So he listened.
They soon arrived back at the Jedi Temple. Everyone had been worried about them, especially when they hadn't answered their calls.
That night, however, there was one more teensy little detail to deal with.
It was past midnight, and Anakin and Ahsoka were sneaking around in ninja suits.
"Remind me again what we're doing, Ahsoka?" Anakin asked.
"We're going to sneak into Obi-Wan's quarters and use the neutralizing dust, so Obi-Wan won't be a fairy anymore." Ahsoka explained.
"Ohhhh. Ok." Anakin said in understanding.
They arrived at the door, and picked the lock to open the door and get inside.
The room was a wreck, as usual. As well as the usual vegetable bowls and exercise equipment, there was also some of Satine's junk. Satine was staying at a nearby hotel during her stay on Coruscant, though she spent most of her time during the day at Obi-Wan's quarters.
"Now, don't knock anything over." Ahsoka hissed. "If we wake him up, he'll never let us take away the fairy spell."
They had to be sneaky in evading all the junk on the floor. But eventually, they made it to Obi-Wan's bedroom.
Ahsoka snuck in and sprinkled the dust on Obi-Wan.
His fairy wings were suddenly gone.
Obi-Wan woke up and saw Ahsoka staring at him. "AHHHH!" He screamed. "Ahsoka! What are you doing at this hour in my quarters?"
Ahsoka blushed, knowing he wasn't going to like what she was about to say. "We had to get rid of your fairy wings, Obi-Wan. I'm sorry."
"WHAT?" Obi-Wan screamed.
"Shh! It's only one o'clock in the morning!" Ahsoka hissed.
Obi-Wan by this time was crying. "I wanted to stay a fairy forever!" He wailed.
"Well, you can't. 'Night!" Ahsoka said, and she and Anakin left as fast as possible, only knocking over two lamps and a treadmill in the process.
Then, Obi-Wan called out into the cool, almost-spring early-morning-
