Bird bites UDC IX 1. Adamant “You will stay here until it is done.” Teacher Anaras was adamant. The two boys standing in the fresher had been naughty during exercise-time. She had seen them slipping away from the exercise-ground after a short conversation with another boy. That padawan – Benno Perion – had looked at her with innocent Mooka-eyes before returning to the obstacle-course and becoming busy again with his exercise. She had contacted Count Dooku, the master of culprit Qui-Gon Jinn, after seeing what the boys had done to the fresher. Paint, floating objects and a giant toy spider were among the things used to redecorate it. 2. Abide “You will abide by my rules padawan Jinn,” Count Dooku was towering above a quivering Qui-Gon. “No more contact with padawan Quwin or his master Jadin Finn. Your behaviour is despicable. You are grounded for the next ten days.” “But master,” Qui-Gon began with a sorrowfull voice. “No,” Count Dooku began to turn away. “I have to follow my lessons in astronavigation and mathematics and for that,” Qui-Gon continued. A head turned. “You have to leave your room. I will guide you to your lessons padawan and now to your room and meditate one hour on what you have done.” 3. Afield “You sure did serve your time,” Benno Perion sauntered towards Qui-Gon Jinn who was for the first time afield in the garden of a thousand fountains after ten days of being guided to and from classes by his stern master Dooku. “Yes and it was because of an innocent prank Jerza and I had figured out,” Qui-Gon had a small smile on his face. “And Master Finn and his ideas… he had done it before in a...” “But it was the fresher for the girls,” Benno began to laugh. “I caught a glimpse of it before teacher Anaras discovered it.” 4. Aghast “And you didn’t see those girls and their faces aghast after seeing that spider,” Benno laughed. “I did before sneaking silently away when teacher Anaras ran towards the fresher after hearing the shrieking cries of padawans Serrao and Kowal.” “Padawan Serrao was the main reason for us doing our redecoration job,” Qui-Gon said. “She had been pestering Jerza because she is the padawan of a healer. She despises healers and their prodding and poking when you are sick.” “And we don’t?” “No Benno, you just have to visit the right healer who will be giving you something to distract you.” 5. Aforetime “Ah yes, healer Adin and healer Finn are famous,” Benno began to walk towards the shrubs around one of the lakes in which a waterfall was cascading from a rocky outcrop. “I am sure one or two of my plastform syringes have ended up here.” He squatted down, rummaged in the shrubs and jumped up producing the required items. “Catch it Jinn!” The game was on. Qui-Gon caught the plastform syringe expertly, filled it with water and as in the past when he was only a little initiate he began to try to wet Benno with the squirt of water.
