    Summary: Post Episode I - AU. Padme follows Obi-Wan after his meeting with Master Yoda, and finally catches up with him in the garden and they share a forbidden kiss.
    Disclaimer: Obi-Wan & Padme, a love that will never be, well not in our Obidala world. Their story belongs to the great flannel man, George Lucas.

    Just One Kiss. One forbidden kiss, and I've lost myself in your arms. I wasn't supposed to be there, but I couldn't watch you torture yourself like that. After that morning you saw Master Yoda, I followed you throughout the afternoon. I wanted to make you were going to be okay, or so I told myself.

    I wandered out for a walk around the palace earlier that morning but on my way out, I heard you talking to Master Yoda. I was curious. I heard Ani's name mentioned a couple times, but I was more worried about you. You left the palace, walking around the garden...Before then, you wandered just about everywhere, which lead me believe you knew I was following you.

    Turning a corner, I even saw the smirk on your face and blush. Your Jedi senses told you I was there, didn't they? I still followed despite your round-about. Eventually, I found you alone in the garden, in front of the water fountain. This was crazy, I told myself.

    I was a Queen. I was supposed to be in my office, hearing the daily news about something or other. But yet, I was there. I worriedly looked around...Now, my alter ego of Padme was known, I had to be careful. No one could know I was there.

    As I walked behind you, you smiled and laughed, "For a handmaiden, you're not very stealthy, your highness,"

    I smiled and walked casually to him and sat down beside him on the bench. "Sorry, if I was disturbing you Knight Kenobi,"

    He turned and looked at me, "So, it was you that I felt this morning, listening to my conversation with Master Yoda? Your highness, I'm shocked."

    "Sorry," I whispered, "I was worried about you. After Master Qui-Gon died, you've been very withdrawn.."

    Obi-Wan's smile ceased, "He's been my father for a long time, Padme. He's always been there and now, I'm alone."

    "You're not alone, Obi-Wan," I said and hesitated for a moment, before reaching for his hand and squeezing it. Obi-Wan looked down at my hand and then into my brown eyes. For some reason, I leaned closer to him, staring back at his brown, gray eyes. Obi-Wan started to push back my hood but my hands stopped him, and I started to back away again.

    By then, Obi-Wan's lips already touched mine.

    "Sorry," I said weakly, "I shouldn't have done that. I'm sorry, Obi-Wan..." and started to move from the bench.

    "Padme wait!" he cried and took hold of my hand again. I turned, staring into his eyes again. We both stood there for a long time. I expected him to say something, an apology but seriously, did I want to hear an apology? I wanted to stay there and comfort him, but my duty...Both our duties took precedence. "Shall I escort you back to the palace, handmaiden?"

    I instinctively pulled up my hood and smiled, "Thank you, Knight Kenobi."

    He bowed, "Thank you, your highness..."

    "Do me a favor...When we're alone like this, could you just call me Padme?" I asked.

    "As long as you call me Obi-Wan," he said and stared into my eyes again. "Could I ask you a small favor, Padme?" I nodded him on. "Could you remove that hood of yours? I know it's standard protocol for handmaidens to blend into the background, but as friends, I'd very much like to be able to see your face,"

    I smiled and pulled back at the hood. He grinned, "Now, that's better." I nodded, still staring into his eyes. My hands somehow reached his tunic and pulled him closer to me as we kissed again. No Obi-Wan, this IS a lot better. Obi-Wan pulled me closer, wrapping his arms around my waist.

    I really shouldn't have followed him.

    The End

    thanks, lady. I read this over this morning, and the last line, well, it just begs more chapters. But I don't want to start anything until my two J/J fics are finished.

    I have :D I like Obi-Wan/Sabe too. I know that's weird coming from a hard core Obidala 'shipper, but Obi/Sabe are a sweet couple too.

    I like this, it's exactly the way things should be :)

    It's lovely, the interaction between the two characters is good.

    I'm slowly getting through more Obidala!
