Obi-Wan and Siri collapsed on her sleeping pallet. It had been a long day. ?I can?t believe that the Council is letting us get away with it,? Siri softly whispered. ?Well, there are far more pressing matters than the two of us,? Obi-Wan replied softly before kissing her on the forehead. ?I feared they would make us chose between each other and the Order,? Siri admitted. ?You didn?t need to worry; I would give up anything for you,? Obi-Wan told her sincerely. ?Anything?? Siri asked, realizing the depth of that statement and wondering if he really meant it. Obi-Wan paused to consider what he would give up. Would he really give up being a Jedi? Could he actually settle down into a normal life? What would he do? Would he find a job? Would he marry Siri? Would he have children? Would he be a good father? Would he allow his children to be raised as Jedi? All of these questions flooded Obi-Wan?s mind, almost overwhelming him. ?Yes, I would give up anything to be with you.? Obi-Wan?s words melted Siri?s heart. ?But I think we will both agree that right now is not the best time to give up being a Jedi. They need us too much.? ?Yes they do. But what about after the war?? Siri asked. ?Well, we will decide when it ends. If they do not allow us to remain as Jedi, then we can retire, marry, and create little padawans to terrorize Anakin. How does that sound?? Siri giggled as she replied, ?Wonderful. Would we do all of that if they didn?t kick us out?? ?Most definitely. Anakin needs padawans to terrorize him so that he can understand what I went through.? Obi-Wan and Siri laughed. Neither had felt this happy in a long time. Not since before the war. Not since before Qui-Gon died. Not since their childhood was stolen from them as they were forced to grow up too quickly. Not since they fell in love and realized they could not be together. ?Do we want to raise our children as Jedi?? Siri asked. Obi-Wan laughed. ?I don?t know, Siri. Could you imagine not being a Jedi?? ?Maybe the Order will be different by then. Maybe we can raise our children and be Jedi at the same time,? Siri remarked thoughtfully. ?So you are saying we should become Corellians?? Obi-Wan joked. ?There are worse things we could do,? Siri replied, still grinning. Obi-Wan leaned in and gave her a soft kiss. ?I never thought this could happen. I have never been happier.? ?Obi? What happens if?? she trailed off, unable to complete her thought. ?Well, we cannot think about that. We must simply cherish the time we have together, and not dwell on what we cannot predict.? Siri nodded, Obi-Wan?s words rang true in her heart. ?Well then, I think we must cherish the time we have together.? A mischievous grin spread across Siri?s face as a surprised look dawned on Obi-Wan?s face as he realized what Siri was implying. ?That we must.?
