@Lady_Misty A/N: My muse is currently constipated, so I just did the first thing that came to mind, so these are all over the place. Serious “Why is that woman always so serious?” Hobbie wondered out loud as Winter left the mess hall. “’Cause she hasn’t been laid in years,” Wes retorted. “I wonder if she’s desperate. I’d do that,” Hobbie said with a nod. Tycho started coughing on a fried tubor. Wedge raised his eyebrow. “Tych, you okay there, buddy?” “No,” the blonde man gasped for air. “No one will be ‘doing’ Winter. And for your guys’ information, she ISN’T serious all the time!” With that Tycho stopped out of the mess hall. “I call dibs on his tubors!” Wes exclaimed, grabbing the unfinished plate. Silly Mara was never around babies growing up, or even as an adult for that matter, so she never had considered herself a ‘baby-person’. But as she sat, watching Ben in his bassinet, everything he did amazed her. She couldn’t help but smile when he made brief eye contact with her. “Who’s my little boy?” She gently took his hands. “You’re my little boy,” she said in a silly voice. “Yes you are! You’re mommy’s little baby boy.” “Mara?” Luke appeared in the doorway, startling her. “What are you doing?” “I’m talking to Ben,” she said in an extremely dignified fashion. Charming When the door swooshed open, Luke smiled. “You look amazing,” he gasped. Seeing Mara in a slinky black dress did things to his body. Her hair was in curls and she actually was wearing make-up. Mara smiled. “Well, aren’t you just the charmer.” She looked him up and down. He was in an all-black suit. “You don’t clean up so bad yourself… for a farmboy.” He offered her his arm. “Shall we go?” She didn’t take it. “Do we have to?” Mara wrinkled her nose. “Well, it is our engagement party.” “Your point is?” she asked, waiting for a reply. Rude It had been a lovely family outing, with Luke and Mara in disguise of course, until a rude, old woman approached them. “Shouldn’t she be walking?” the woman asked, pointing to the four-year-old Beru in her hoverchair, which looked more like a stroller because of her age and small size. “You shouldn’t have her in a stroller at that age.” Mara was about to leap at the woman’s throat, but Luke beat her to it. “Well, if you took the time to look, you would see that this is a hoverchair, because she can’t physically walk, now please excuse us.” Funny The unfortunate run in with the rude woman had left Beru in tears. Not even the promise of a sweet treat could calm her, then Ben took things into his own hands. He purposefully stumbled into her hoverchair and fell down with a goofy sound. This got Beru’s attention. On the ground, he said, “Look Beru, I’m an old man like Dad. Help! I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” Beru snickered. Luke caught on and glared down at Ben. “I am not old.” “You are so old,” Ben replied, “You taught Yoda how to speak.” Beru started laughing hysterically.
