    Qui-Gon peeked into the room of his sleeping Padawan and smiled in the dim, early morning light. Spiky reddish hair stuck out of a cocoon of fabric that entangled pairs of arms and legs at odd angles. Quietly approaching the sleeping form, Qui-Gon pulled himself up short as the slumbering mass emitted a sudden moan, flailed its arms about briefly and turned over.

    The large man with the long, chestnut hair chuckled softly and began to gently untangle his young charge from his self-imposed prison. Not once did the boy wake and when the task was finally complete Qui-Gon smoothed the youngster?s Padawan braid down and crept quietly out of the room.

    The sun was just beginning to rise over the horizon of Coruscant, the lines of traffic still thin and scattered as the daily rush of aircars slowly got up to its usual frantic pace. Qui-Gon sat down in front of the large window in the common room of the apartment he shared with Obi-Wan. Large pillows had been placed on the floor in front of it for morning and evening meditations, their centers indented from hours upon hours of sitting.

    Qui-Gon?s large, dark green cushion had been a gift from Tahl when he took Obi-Wan as his Padawan a decade before. It was well broken in and facilitated Qui-Gon?s ease in meditation with it?s comfortable familiarity. Next to it sat a smaller blue cushion. It was in much better condition than his own despite the fact that two seats were the same age. Ratty edges were neatly and regularly repaired where he had allowed his to grow thread bare and ragged.

    Closing his eyes, Qui-Gon reached into the Living Force and lost himself in the beauty of each moment, as he had been led to do his entire life. After a little while, he heard a rustle of fabric and felt a presence join him in the ebb and flow of the Force. It was fuzzy around the edges and reached toward him through a silvery thread that connected him to it. It slowly began to clarify and strengthen as time passed and the meditation grew deeper.

    The sun had risen above the horizon when Qui-Gon opened his eyes and met the ocean blue spheres that now sought his own.

    ?Good morning, Padawan.? He said softly.

    ?Good morning, Master? Came the warm reply.

    ?It?s good to be home, isn?t it?? Qui-Gon asked as he stretched his long legs before him.

    ?Yes, it most definitely is!? The boy?s voice was enthusiastic and bright.

    Obi-Wan rose from his neat, blue cushion and padded softly into the kitchenette he shared with his Master. Qui-Gon sighed warmly as he listened to the familiar song his Padawan hummed while preparing their morning tea. There was more rustling about in the panty than usual and after a while it finally piqued Qui-Gon?s interest.

    ?Obi-Wan, is everything alright in there?? he called out, concern in his voice.

    ?Yes, Master, just fine. I?ll be there in a moment.? Obi-Wan replied a bit too quickly, his voice pitched a bit high. The boy was obviously up to something.

    After a bit more noise from the kitchenette, the boy?s gingery head appeared. He carried a large tray in his hands. Besides the usual pot of tea and cups, there were lovely, flaky pastries, thick slices of bread and a jar of jam.

    ?Obi-wan, what is all of this? Have I forgotten my Lifeday again?? The Jedi Master asked, a laugh in his voice.

    ?No, Master.? He smiled sheepishly. ?I just felt like doing something a little different. We?ve been so busy away on missions that I though we might just start the day off a little slower than usual.?

    Qui-Gon beamed at his Padawan. It had been quite some time since they?d had a chance to work together and play together without the pressure of a mission over their heads. Obi-wan was becoming a promising young kni

    Absolutely wonderful! :) The ending was just perfect and I liked that Yoda didn't wish to disturb them, especially since it was the Council that worked them so hard. :p

    Princess_Arulmozhi: Thanks! It was sugary sweet on purpose, just like a birthday cake! I just love the word youngling. I use it on my cats.

    Stella_Ripple: You're welcome, m'dear. So glad you liked it.

    bek: That darned Council. The need to give these two break!

    Kynstar: Glad you liked it. I wouldn't mind cuddling up with Qui-Gon myself. [face_love] Don't know how much sleeping there'd be though. Great, now I sound like Leona!

    Tranquility, serenity, and peace, just what these two very busy jedi need.

    Gave me the warm fuzzies. [:D]

    This is one I'll re-read periodically.

    Yep, wonderful mush fix, that was indeed. [face_love]

    I liked the contrast between Qui and Obi, how Qui is so disorderly, and Obi is so fastidious and careful, and how it was demonstrated by their meditation cushions: Qui's was threadbare, and Obi kept repairing his. I can very much see them acting that way. [face_love]

    And then I loved how Yoda came in and called them both younglings, then covered them with that blanket. Great mental image, that part. [face_love]

    Great story! :D

    Awww, so adorable, J_L! [face_love] I loved the part at the end, with Yoda finding the two of them fast asleep. *girlie squeals are heard as she huggles her own Obi-clone*

    Lucky birthday girl, getting such a wonderful present! It's such a cute story, J_L. You should write mush more often! *hopeful grin*

    OMG! I love you people! [face_blush] There's going to be a lot of "thank yous" I'm just too overwhelmed to say much!

    KELIA: Thank you! I need some insulin to balance myself out!

    Maychorian: May the Great liked my mush! Thank you!

    Kestrel_Kenobi: A Padawan! You need to tell me when your birthday is and your favorite kind of mush!

    corellian-jedi: Thank you, you're plent coherent from my end!

    Aya-Na_Bashu: I'm honored you think this is worth a reread!

    Qui-Gina-Jinn: Thank you. I'm with ya on the Qui/Obi mush. It's the best!

    VaderLVR: Oh, very subtle Master. I almost missed it, it was so slick. You're on my calendar! :p

    LilQui-Gon: I love it, too! It's just as fun to write as to read!

    lost_jedii: So glad I could fill that need! The world is a better place with more mush.

    Bastet: Glad you liked the Yoda part, that and the cushions were my fav moments, too.

    SQ: Hi hon! I write plenty of mush! Just because I'm an evil padawan doesn't mean I can't write mush. I know it's been a while. I'll write more soon.
