    -A Mile in their Shoes-


    Moving so fast that his motions blurred, Qui-Gon
    whirled around and grabbed the attacker's wrist before the
    blow could land.

    He found himself staring into the startled and enraged
    face of the Prime Minister.

    "Well Mr. Bosh," he said calmly, pushing the short,
    fat man up against the trophy case. "I have found
    something in here after all. And I think perhaps you can
    explain it to me."


    With only a moment to act, Obi-Wan pulled Mareeja
    protectively behind him, prepared to take the shot first.
    Only the shot never came.

    "Halt! You are all under arrest!" a voice shouted,
    causing the traitorous Security Officers to look up. They
    found themselves surrounded by a company of soldiers, their
    weapons drawn.

    The traitors, clearly out-numbered, laid down their
    arms without a fight.

    Obi-Wan saw his Master step out of the trees. Beside
    Qui-Gon was a General with gold-braid on his Uniform. "Your
    Highness, are you all right?" the General asked in concern.

    Mareeja nodded wordlessly. Speech seemed a trifle
    beyond her at this time.

    "How did you find us, Master?" Obi-Wan asked, both
    surprised and happy to see Qui-Gon there. He had gotten so
    used to having to disguise his voice that he forgot that he
    didn't need to now.

    Qui-Gon almost smiled at the sight and the sound of
    his apprentice. He had forgotten how good the makeover had
    done its job and it was odd to hear a young lady call him

    "Prime Minister Bosh planned his trap craftily. A
    little too craftily for his own good. Everything was so
    well planned that he became over confident and took risks
    he should not have," Qui-Gon replied.

    "Once Bosh's treachery was discovered, he spilled the
    whole thing like the coward he is," the General added.
    "From there, and with Master Jinn's help, we were able to
    locate you. Thank the powers that we made it in time."

    "Thank you General," Mareeja said, still slightly
    shaken and shell-shocked from everything that had happened.
    "And thank you Master Jinn." She said nothing to Obi-Wan.
    She didn't even look at him. Obi-Wan's heart felt heavy.
    He had been afraid of this. Afraid that because their
    friendship started out based on a deception it could not
    last once the truth was revealed.

    "Now you know what happened with us, but what about
    you? We expected to find you two still in their clutches,
    not here in the middle of the forest!" the General

    Qui-Gon glanced at Obi-Wan. The General had expected
    them to still be there. Qui-Gon had not.

    "We would have missed you if Master Jinn hadn't
    insisted that we turn aside here," the kindly older man

    "I don't feel well General and I'd rather not talk
    about it," Mareeja put a hand to her head, the long ordeal
    finally taking its toll on her. "I'm sure Obij- Obi-Wan
    here can fill you in on everything." Was that ice in her
    voice when she said it?

    Obi-Wan sighed.

    The General turned to the young Jedi expectantly and
    Obi-Wan obediently filled in the details for the Radoonian
    and his Master. When he finished, he looked around for
    Mareeja, but found her gone; already whisked away back to
    the palace. He wanted to talk to her, but supposed it
    would have to wait.

    Qui-Gon placed his hand gently on his apprentice's
    shoulder, knowing what he was thinking. "Come, it's time
    to go back."

    Not very far distant there was a clearing where the
    army had parked the small fleet of swoops that they had
    used to reach the area so quickly. There were only enough
    swoops for the soldiers and Qui-Gon who had ridden out so
    the General had sent for a transport to come to take the
    prisoners and Obi-Wan back.

    As they arrived in the clearing, one of the soldiers
    approached Qui-Gon. He was a trifle timid, but seemed to
    be bolstering himself up to ask something. "Master Jinn,"
    he said with forced braveness. "As you know, it will take
    a good fifteen minutes for the transport to arrive. I
    would hate to see the lady stranded here that long after
    everything she's been through sir and I, that is, I was
    wondering if I might have your permission

    I can just imagine a lot of men trying to flirt with Obi-Wan. And "Qui darling." If I had less self-control, I'd typing this on my back, instead of getting back into my seat. Ha!

    Okay, here we go, last part.
    Quite a few people on and off list have been asking me if I am a
    "Pro-writer". Well, yes and no. If by pro-writer you kind people mean
    writting is my chosen profession, then yes! But, I haven't had
    published yet. Working on it!
    Okay, hope you all liked Part 9. I think it was one of my favorite
    parts of
    the story! Now for the conclusion...

    Things bracketed by *'s are *italic*.

    Summary: When the young Queen-to-be of the Planet Radoon's life is
    threatened, Obi-Wan must go undercover to protect her, but just how
    far will the ruse have to go? And will it be enough?

    -A Mile in their Shoes-


    The Coronation went splendidly and it was indeed an
    auspicious affair. It actually turned out to be a three-
    day procedure filled with feasting and merriment. On the
    morning of the last day, Mareeja was installed as Radoon's
    Queen for the rest of her natural life, unless she chose to
    relinquish, or the people voted to remover her, neither of
    which looked likely to happen.

    However Obi-Wan's enjoyment of the whole affair was
    slightly tainted because he was still troubled about the
    way in which the princess and he had parted several days

    The afternoon after the ceremonies were officially
    over, Obi-Wan sought Mareeja out. He found her on the
    terrace, looking out over the palace gardens.

    "Your Highness?" he said quietly, coming up behind

    Mareeja started slightly, not having heard his
    approach. She turned.

    "So," he smiled gently. "You are Queen now. Does it
    feel different? You don't look different."

    "It's strange really," Mareeja shook her head. "In
    some ways I feel no different at all, and in others, I feel
    as if I'll never be the same again." She turned her face
    away from him and Obi-Wan's heart ached.

    "Your Highness," he sighed. "I'm sorry. I'm sorry
    that I had to deceive you, I'm sorry that I broke the
    sacredness of your party, I only did it in an effort to
    protect you, and I didn't end up doing a very good job of
    that," Obi-Wan looked dejectedly at the floor. "I wanted
    to tell you a hundred times, but, but I was afraid it would
    change everything between us," Obi-Wan reached out and
    gently turned her head back towards him with his hand on
    her chin.

    "You are a kind and enjoyable person Mareeja and I
    treasure your friendship. The things I said to you were
    not lies; I meant every word of them. As Obijeena, I came
    to love you like a sister, and I only wonder, can you like
    Obi-Wan too?" Obi-Wan inquired earnestly, his pale blue
    eyes searching her intense periwinkle ones.

    Mareeja smiled and took his hand in hers. "Of course
    I can Obi-Wan. I was angry at first, but the past few days
    have given me time to think and I realized that I probably
    would not have survived that ordeal without you, so your
    disguise and attendance at the party are justified. But
    more than that," she squeezed his hand. "I treasure our
    friendship too. I feel that I know your heart Obi-Wan
    Kenobi, and that you know mine. That is not a feeling I am
    able to share with very many people. Let us always be
    friends Obi-Wan. Promise you will write to me, after you
    and your Master leave."

    "I promise, if you will write to me," Obi-Wan agreed
    with a smile.

    "But where would I send the letters?" Mareeja laughed.
    "To: Obi-Wan Kenobi,
    Galaxy Wanderer
    c/o Adventure & Danger Unlimited?" she shook her head.

    Obi-Wan laughed too. "Send your letters to the Jedi
    Temple on Coruscant. I can always pick them up there, or
    they can forward them."


    Obi-Wan heard Qui-Gon calling him. "Here Master, on
    the terrace," he answered.

    Qui-Gon smiled when he saw Obi-Wan and Mareeja
    together, looking so happy. He was glad that they had
    worked everything out. Then his face straightened again as
    he recalled what he had come here to say. "We have to
    leave Obi-Wan, gather your things."

    "So soon?" Obi-Wan looked a little surprised. He
    would have thought they would have had a day or two's
    layaway at least.

    "Yes, I have been summoned by the Council,"

    Cassia, that was great! I loved the way that Obi-Wan managed to tease Qui-Gon in Part 9, and I'm sure that even when he's scrubbing the floors for months to come, he'll sit back and think about that with a smile. I also liked the part where the Princess started to tease Qui-Gon, too, then backed off meekly. And the part where she asks where she should send her letters to Obi-Wan. "Adventure and Danger Unlimited." Yes! The last line made me laugh so hard! You're an excellent writer and I hope you get published soon. Now I'm looking forward to your next story!

    Cassia, another superb story!!

    The humor at the end was outstanding!!! From the misunderstanding in the room with Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan to the master being called to the carpet for indecent allegations...hilarious!!!

    I bet Obi-Wan will come to regret his little joke on his master.

    I can't believe that! That was excellent! Oh I could just see Qui-Gon's embarrassment!


    That was the best fic, I laughed, and did it so hard I cried!

    Will there be a sequal?

    I'd love to see Qui walk a mile in their shoes as punishment from the council for having teen girls in his quarters.

    OHhhhhh... The mind boggles.
