This was my attempted at a hundred word Obidala story, It's a lot hared to write just a hundred words then I first thought. Maybe I'll try again some other time. : )
Also for this story I had my sister give me words that I had to use in it.
Those words are : homologous and Shiny.
If you want to give words for me to use, just leave them in a review, I will use five words at the most per chapter.
Please keep them G rated or I will not use them.
A Chance Encounter
By Tara Azzan
Padme ducked into a small building called The Dancing Diner. She always came here when she just wanted to escape politics for a while. She had a few other places she liked to go, but this was her favorite.
After getting something to eat, she scanned the room for someone to dance with that was one of her favorite things about this place, she could dance, but didn't have to dance the whole song with the same person, since J-Tan always called for a switch every few minutes, which meant all the girls moved to the right. She spotted a Twi'lek male, watching the dance in a far corner and crossed the room to him.
"Care to join the dance?" she asked.
"How could I refuse a pretty face? He replied as he stood with his hand held out.
She laughed "Most men can't."
She made light conversation with him until the song was over and J-Tan stood up on the bar.
"We're going to do something different for this next song." he announced. "I'm going to say switch and then a number and the lady's are to switch that many times, any questions?" he paused for a minute then said "No, good, everyone switch once and well get started." with that he jumped down and restarted the music.
Three switch's latter she found herself facing a human male. After having danced with a Rodian and a Wookiee, the latter had proved difficult.
He was only a little taller then her and had reddish blonde hair, with a beard and blue gray eyes, and she couldn't help but think that he was way cute. He seemed to be studying her as they danced, but then broke the silence by saying " Would you do me the kindness of informing me, who it is I have the honor of dancing with?"
"Padme Naberrie" She told him looking away, she was sure that she was blushing.
He smiled but she didn't see.
"That's what I thought" and she looked up at him in surprise. He knew who she was? How could that be? Most people identified her as Senator Amidala, not Padme.
"Do I know you? She asked.
"Yes, but it seams you do not remember me."
"I would think that I would remember someone as charming as you." she told him. "So I am sorry to have forgotten you."
"Does charming include handsome?" he asked.
"Yes, I believe it does" she said smiling. "Now would you mind telling me where we have meet before?"
"If I tell you, you might just forget again." he said teasing her.
"I would not and I wish very much that I had not, but I can not remember." she pouted. "How long did I know you?"
"A few days at least." he said looking over her shoulder. She was tempted to look behind her, but he looked back at her again.
"I am sorry Milady, but I must go." he said as he lead her to the edge of the dance floor. With a bow, he then turned and walked away. She watched him as he joined up with a young man and a woman.
She sighed, she still didn't know where she had meet him before and it seemed likely that she never would, which meant it would torment her the rest of her life. She glanced at the chronometer above the bar and saw that she should really be getting home.
She had continued to go to The Dancing Diner as often as she could slip away, in the hope of seeing him again, but so far it seemed a fruitless task. She gave a sigh and buried her face in her arms, which rested against the bar.
"Are ya going to order something miss?" J-tan asked her.
"Not yet." she mumbled into the counter.
"I didn't understand a word ya said, so I'll get back to ya latter." a few minutes latter she heard him calling for a switch in the dance.
"Do you mind if I join you?" someone asked. She rolled her head to the side to look up at them and the sat up when she saw it was the man from last week.
"Of course not, but I have to admit, I didn't think I would see you again." She said a smile forming on her lips.
"I have been busy, and I don't really go out much in the way of dancing or eating out in general in less it is on business, but I never did tell you who I was, so I fingered, I should at least tell you that, since I had the time and my young friend would not leave me alone on the subjected." He said smiling as he took a seat beside her. "Do you remember who I am yet."
She shook her head. "No, but I can certainly say that if you tell me I will not forget again."
He laughed "So I have made myself unforgettable?"
"Very much so."
Someone taped her shoulder and she turned to look up at female Tholothian.
"Would you happen to know the meaning of homologous?" she asked.
Padme shook her head. "No, sorry."
"It means sharing a similar or related structure, position, function, or value." The man beside her said.
The Tholothian looked at him.
"Thank you so much." she said with a smile and then she turned and walked away. Padme turned to him.
"How did you even know that?" she asked.
"I head it somewhere, on one of my many travels, but I am not sure as to where." he replied with a shrug.
"So you travel a lot, you can dance and we have meet before." she sighed. "you said you came back because you had not told me who you were, yet you will not tell me."
"I also said I came back because my young friend would not leave me alone."
"How much did we talk when I meet you before?"
"Once or twice." he said with a smile.
"And you expected me to remember you why?"
"Well you did say last time we meet that I was charming, which might include handsome." he answered. "Do you always forget people who are charming?"
She laughed "I would think not, maybe you weren't charming then, but I will not know for sure unless you tell me."
"How many charming people have you meet in the galaxy?" he asked."
"So then I should be glad to be one of them?" he asked.
"If you see it that way yes."
"And what way is that?" he ask a smile playing across his face.
"I don't know." she said as she looked away and caught sight of the chronometer. And gasped, causing him to turn and look as well. Typho was going to kill her.
"I suppose you should be going home, considering the lateness of the hour?" he questioned.
"Yes." she sighed, she didn't want to go, but he was right. Even if she didn't want to leave him, he still hadn't told her his name.
"Do you mind if I walk you home?" he asked. Bringing her focus back to him. Her eyes lit up as was he asked donned on her.
"Of course not." was her quick reply.
They both stood and as they left the diner he was a little bit behind her. She knew she shouldn't let someone who she could not even remember the name of or identify where she had meet before, it was then that it occurred to her that he could just be lying about the whole having meet before. She turned to look back at him and her eyes caught on something shiny at his side, but before she could see clearly what it was his brown robe closed around him and it was lost from view. Her breath caught. What if it was some kind of weapon and he meant to kill her and not take her home at all?
"Is something wrong?" he asked concern in his voice and her mind focused on the man in front of her. She hadn't realized how close he had gotten well her mind had been occupied by those dark thoughts.
"Who are you?" she asked trying not to sound scared, but failing. "Who are you really?"
He studied for a moment before replying. "Obi-Wan Kenobi."
Her thoughts exploded into a million different things at his name. for one she felt like an idiot for not remembering him, she also realized she had been flirting with a Jedi, and if she remembered right they were not aloud to marry or have attachment of any kind or at lest she was sure she had head that somewhere and all her other thoughts were so rambled she wasn't sure she could sort them out and if she did she doubted she would understand them..
"Are you all right?" he asked and she realized she was staring opened mouth at him in shock.
"Yes." she said looking away her cheeks red.
"Do you remember me after all?"
"Yes she said still not looking at him. "Are you going to take me home?"
"Of course." he said as he offered her his arm, she accepted it and they walked for awhile in silence.
"Is your young friend Anakin?" she asked.
"Yes, in fact he was with me the last time we meet." he told her.
"Was he the young man that you went over to, after you left me?"
"Oh my, he's grown up so much."
"He certainly has. He's becoming more and more the Jedi Qui-Gon for saw he would be every day and has developed a talent for annoying me in a way no one else can."
She laughed "So I should ask him how he does it, so I can get you back for teasing me so, about forgetting you."
"I don't feel you have the need and I don't think you could annoy me even half so much as he does." Obi-Wan said smiling down at her. And she laughed.
"Then I shall accept that challenge and do my best to annoy you."
