    Title: Where Did the Watto Go?
    Author: RX_Sith
    Characters: Watto, Anakin
    Timeframe: Pre TPM
    Notes: Response to the In the News Roulette Challenge. Hopefully, this is similar to the story that I was given which was The Case of the missing Great Lake.


    Anakin wondered into Watto's shop for his daily duties as the general clean-up person. He got right to his tasks and then after a few hours of cleaning and tinkering he went into the back junkyard to ask Watto if there was anything else for him to do. Unfortunately, Watto was not back in the junkyard.

    So, Anakin began to wonder where Watto was. "I wonder where he could be," Anakin said aloud to himself, "He's never been gone from the shop before." Anakin was a little scared about Watto not being at the shop. But, he decided to just enjoy the moment and decided to tinker some more with a few of the small robots that were littered across the floor in the workshop.

    He fixed up all of the broken robots and got them to do some of his other duties that he preferred to not do. He had them grease up some of the various parts that needed lubrication. He also had them shine and buff various other parts so that they looked newer than they actually were.

    Next, he had the robots sweep and clean the floor and pick up the trash that was littered about in the junkyard and workshop. Anakin just rested in Watto's chair and sat back and watched the little robots do all of the work that he was suppose to do.

    He started to get tired and drifted off to sleep. Deep in sleep, he started to dream. He saw Watto at a pod race placing bets on Sebulba to once again win the pod race. Also, side bets were placed as to how many speeders would finish the race. Normally, only Sebulba's pod would finish.

    All of the other pods were either fixed to come apart by nefarious mechanics under Jabba's payroll. They purposely sabotaged as many pods as they could get away with. The others that they could not access were wrecked either by the other racers or by Sebulba himself.

    Watto enjoyed all of the money that he won from each bet that he placed. He knew, thanks to his affiliation with Jabba, which pods to bet on certain things happening to them. There were numerous side bets that could be placed for each pod.

    The normal crowd would not only pay a significant fee just to watch the race, but also they were charged for other superfluous and miscellaneous charges. There were charges for umbrellas, drinks, food, even a charge to use the fresher.

    Everything at the pod race had a certain charge associated with it. It was not uncommon to be charged around 100 credits just for one race. Even with all of the charges though, the races were packed with customers willing to pay and watch the pod races. It had grown to be renowned throughout the galaxy as a special entertainment gathering.

    After collecting his winnings, Watto then hovered back to his little landspeeder. He then settled into the driver's seat and powered up its air currents that allowed it to hover over the sandy desert surface. He went back to his workshop in Mos Espa. Upon arriving, he noticed that the place was very tidy and clean.

    He could not believe all of the work that his boy slave, Anakin, had accomplished while he was gone. He wondered into the junkyard and saw that it was extremely presentable with each part clean and shiny. Watto was amazed at how much his little slave had accomplished.

    He wondered back into his workshop to go behind his desk and settle into his chair. He began to sit down when he bumped into Anakin. "Wake up, boy!" he shouted discouraged that his slave was sleeping and not working.

    Anakin snapped out of his dream and jumped up excitedly knocking Watto to the floor. "Sorry, Master," Anakin excused himself, "I didn't see you."

    "What have you been up to?" Watto ques/>

    OMG I hate Watto, he's so cruel! :mad:

    Great post. This totally fits with Watto's scummy character, but poor Ani. :(
