Jedi Playing Games

Chapter 2: Capture the Flag

Remember, read and REVIEW please! :D

"I can't believe we're doing this," Anakin muttered.

"It's a team-building exercise, so you have to put up with it," Obi-Wan told him sternly, crossing his arms.

"Still," Ahsoka said, echoing her Master.

They were playing Capture the Flag. On Team 1 were Anakin, Obi-Wan, Ahsoka, Padme, Captain Rex, Aayla Secura, Kit Fisto, Plo Koon, and Depa Billaba. On Team 2 were Chancellor Palpatine, Commander Cody, Mace Windu, Yoda, Barriss Offee, Luminara Unduli, Stass Allie, Adi Gallia, and Shaak Ti. Right now, as you can tell, Anakin and Ahsoka weren't exactly pleased with the game they were playing.

"I'd rather play Go Fish," Ahsoka whined. "This is stupid."

"ANI!" Padme yelled from the other side of the field. "HELP ME! THEY CAUGHT ME!"

"Don't worry, Padme!" Anakin said heroically, thrusting one hand in the air and placing another at his waist like Superman. "I'll save you!"

"WELL THEN, HURRY UP!" The Senator shouted.

At that, Anakin ran across the field, Force-pushing Master Unduli and Master Yoda out of his way. Little did he know that Master Yoda would get annoyed by that Force-push...

So just before he'd managed to reach the "fort" where Padme was, Master Yoda Force-pulled him back and hit him with his gimer stick.

"Ow!" Anakin exclaimed, rubbing his shin. "You little troll! That's not fair!"

"Tagged, you are, Jedi Skywalker," Yoda said, nodding a little too wisely for the atmosphere. "With the Senator, you must go. Wait for help, you must."

From the other end of the field, Aayla Secura rolled her eyes before sprinting into the opposing team's side. She had her eyes on the hoop where the flag lay, and no one was going to stop her-

"Stop!" Padawan Offee ordered, suddenly appearing in front of Aayla, activating her lightsaber.

"Uh, no," the Twi'lek said, activating her own lightsaber. The two began dueling straight in the middle of Team 2's side, blocking anyone from Team 1 who might try to get Team 2's flag.

"Aayla, you idiot, get out of the way!" Plo Koon yelled. "That's the only way we'll get the flag!"

"So you can get the credit?" Aayla shouted back. "No way!"

Plo sighed, exasperated, then turned to Captain Rex. "Set your blaster to stun, Captain."

"Yes, sir," Rex said, confused by this order.

"Shoot Commander Offee. Now. And preferably General Secura, too."

"Uh... yes, sir." Rex went down on one knee and began aiming.

"Master Ti!" Mace Windu yelled at the Togruta. "Get the Captain!"

"Sir, yes, sir!" Shaak said mockingly and ran, lightsaber activated, towards Rex. She did the one thing she'd always wanted to do as she ran- released her battle cry. "AAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!"

"AAAAAAHHHHH!" Plo ran to meet her, and they promptly clashed lightsabers, blocking Rex, who only moved over to aim at Commander Offee better as he shook his head at his generals' sudden immaturity.

Depa Billaba saw Commander Cody casually step over the boundary line and make his way sneakily across. She immediately Force-pushed him into their "fort" for captured "prisoners", and the clone practically flew into the marked zone, yelling, "UNFAIR! That's unfair, General!"

Anakin bent over laughing at the clone, not even noticing Ahsoka steadily making her way towards him and Padme. Suddenly, Palpatine appeared in front of them, stretching his arms out, and bellowed, "HALT! IN THE NAME OF THE REPUBLIC!"

Ahsoka stopped, eyes wide. Obviously, she was confused.

"Hey!" Padme protested. "You're not supposed to use your power for Capture the Flag! Cheater!"

"Shut up," Palpatine ordered. "In the name of the Republic."

Padme rolled her eyes. "Geez. Ahsoka, I, Senator Amidala, order you to continue in the name of the Republic."

Ahsoka started forward, relieved, until Palpatine yelled again, "HALT, JEDI! IN THE NAME OF THE REPUBLIC!"

This time, the Padawan ignored him, simply flipping over him, and grabbed Padme by the arm. "I'll be taking Senator Amidala with me, Chancellor- and you can't do anything about it."

"Fine," the Chancellor grumbled. "Be that way."

Padme grinned at Ahsoka. "Thanks."

MEANWHILE- Rex aimed carefully. There- almost got her- just a second- and then he pulled the trigger.

Barriss fell down. Aayla looked pleased and turned towards the hoop with the flag inside it.

"NOOOOO!" Luminara yelled, and charged Rex, who was now standing unprotected.

"HELP!" Rex shouted, terrified, and began running away from the crazed Jedi Master.

Aayla reached down and grabbed the flag, but just as she turned Mace put his lightsaber to her neck. Yoda was hobbling over, presumably to tag her, but Aayla wasn't going to let herself stay that long.

She kicked Mace in the chest and ran for her life.

"GO AAYLA!" Depa cheered, drawing the attention of Adi Gallia and Stass Allie, who promptly looked up from where they sat, making daisy chains (Depa didn't know how they'd gotten them, the field was artificial turf). At the sight of Aayla running across the field, with an angry Yoda and Mace Windu running after her, the two Jedi Masters got up and started chasing the Twi'lek as well.

"WOOHOO!" Kit yelled happily as Aayla crossed the line with the flag held up triumphantly.

Yes, Team 1 won Capture the Flag, but it took some time for Barriss to wake up, Luminara to stop chasing Rex around, Mace to stop bellowing "AAYLA CHEATED!", and Ahsoka, Anakin, and Obi-Wan to stop laughing.

So... what do you think? Review please! And put in some questions for Truth or Dare... I'll probably change the rating of the story from K anyways.
