    Ok, here goes......

    Fic: A Crying Good Time
    Rating: G

    NB: Many, many thanks to Jedi_Freyja who beta'd this [:D]



    "Master are you crying?!"

    Obi-Wan snapped his head around from what he was watching on the holoscreen in their living quarters. "Of course not!" He replied indignantly, though Anakin was unconvinced, taking notice of Obi-Wan's oddly husky voice and slightly red-rimmed eyes.

    "What are you watching?" Anakin didn't wait for Obi-Wan to reply before snatching the remote out of his hand. When he turned the channel back to what Obi-Wan had been watching, he was shocked. He had been expecting holo-footage of Qui-Gon, or some news story of another jedi death. Or, at the very least, The Bantha King.

    But no. His very dignified and well respected master was crying over ?Extreme Makeover - Alderaani Apartment Edition?.

    "I was not crying, my very young Padawan." Obi-Wan made a pass for the remote but Anakin was already moving it to the far side of the couch, "I just had something in my eye."

    "Sure. Well, I may as well stay and watch it with you, in case you need some support," the younger Jedi said. He gave his master a patronizing pat on the arm, and giving Obi-Wan a shove, Anakin made room for himself on the couch and grabbed the bowl of snacks out his master's hands.

    "Comfortable?" Obi-Wan asked sarcastically as he shifted uncomfortably on the now-too-small couch.

    Anakin didn't even glance at him, "Shhh. It's back on."

    ***

    The two sat quietly while programme continued. Obi-Wan stared determinedly at the screen, ignoring Anakin's frequent sidelong glances.

    Obi-Wan admitted to feeling a little embarrassed at having been caught by Anakin. Not that he had been doing anything of course! But to think his padawan thought him so weak that he would cry over such a sappy story as the one playing out on the screen, Obi-Wan shook his head.

    He had considered getting up and leaving as soon as Anakin had caught him, but that would be as good as admitting guilt, and besides, he really wanted to see how the blind guy in the hover-chair who had been saved by the family dog reacted when they revealed his new 5 story apartment. And so they sat and watched.

    Everything was peaceful and Obi-Wan was just getting back into the story (the ?dream team? were putting the finishing touches on the 2 story dog-house) when he heard something from the other end of the couch. Unsure of what the sound was Obi-Wan waited for it to happen again. He was about to give up, when...

    *sniffle*

    Obi-Wan's head whipped round to look at Anakin.

    "What?!" He snapped at his Master

    "Nothing." Obi-Wan replied, turning back to watch the family climb out of their black stretch speeder, with a slight grin.

    Onscreen the host had hugged the family and was now kneeling, shaking hands with the dog and crying uncontrollably.

    *Sniff*

    Obi-Wan snuck a glance at Anakin out the corner of his eye.

    "What?!" Snapped Anakin again. "I've got a dust allergy, OK?"

    That was fine by Obi-Wan, he wasn't going to argue. Especially seeing as a bit of the dust Anakin was allergic to was in his eye again.

    Onscreen the family was gasping and crying over their amazing new home. The dog was barking and the ?dream team? patted her on the head, hugged her and exclaimed what a hero she was.

    *Sniff.*

    *Sniffle*

    Obi-Wan resolutely ignored Anakin's sniffling and grabbed a handful of popcorn and stuffed it into his mouth, trying to muffle the sobs he could feel building. He knew this was ridiculous but the story was just so sad!

    *Sniff. Hic*

    The hover-chair-bound blind man toured his new home, the limping old dog in tow, while everybody cried. Host and make-over team included, as well as the cameraman and the two jedi watching the show.

    ***

    By the time the credits were rolling Obi-Wan had regained a decent control over his emotions, though he wasn't sure if the same could be said of his padawan, who utterly refused to look at him. Obi-Wan could understand that, feeling his own face burning with

    VA_Parky I know! Aren't they adorable...Though I think Obi-Wan really should of been the one hugging Anakin.
    I'm glad the title worked, that was the one thing I was a bit unsure about :)

    SakuraTsukikage Thanks...it's simply a case of me watching way too much TV!

    iLoveAnakin7 Yeah...I'm a bit like that too, though no-one knows! Shhh, it's a secret! [face_blush]

    Jedi_Freyja Thanks, lol!! Big upps to you too! :) =D= :D

    That was great! [face_laugh] Obi and Ani crying over a TV show...I love it!

    "What?!" Snapped Anakin again. "I've got a dust allergy, OK?"

    That was fine by Obi-Wan, he wasn't going to argue. Especially seeing as a bit of the dust Anakin was allergic to was in his eye again.


    Yay for dust allergies! Not that I've ever used that excuse or anything... [face_whistling]

    Anyway, once again, great job with this! It's fun to see the Jedi's...sentimental side. :D
