Chirrut had dropped his toy bantha, then followed it as it was bounced around people’s feet until it fetched up against the shoes of a shaggy haired child in disciples robes, who picked it up and offered it back to him.
Never shy but speechless for once- Chirrut approached and took the toy and gave it a careful hug. A woman with a faint look of exasperation hurries over to Chirrut.
“MAMA! THERE’S A BANTHA GIRL!” The size of his voice is completely at odds with Chirrut’s tiny figure.
The disciple with Baze snorts an inadvertent laugh and the child goes red with indignation then yells back in a surprisingly gruff voice for his age-
“I’m NOT A BANTHA!”
The disciples watching their charge look surprised. Baze had been silent since he’d arrived at the temple.
I nearly forgot to post that drawing ! Enjoy the space babies having fun on a quite strange but peaceful planet for once. Let’s assume Coran had some doubts about the color of the water and stayed in the ship;;
I’ve been hanging out with two little girls, both under the age of two (distant cousins) latelly and, even tho I’m not the type of person that dreams of getting married and having kids and being around them 24/7 for the rest of their life, I found myself being super attached to them and going to extremes to make sure they are happy and healthy at all times. At the smallest sign they might give me of being uncomfortable or sad or upset, I will stop whatever I’m doing and go help them and, if someone upsets them, I’ll go “momma bear” on them, even tho the kids aren’t mine and i’m only a teenager. Even my mom and sister have noticed how differently I’m acting when I’m around them.
This made me think about how Aliens would react to my odd behaviour around these tiny human creatures and how they would react to the all the hard work that is taking care of young kids.
