    Let's be nice to JOWK. If we would offer JOWK chocolate chip cookies do you think JOWK would write. Maybe Wookie cookies.

    I?M SORRY!!!
    Really. Between college, homework, and my job, I only have so much time. I don?t do this on purpose My ?real life? just gets in the way. I am truly sorry about how long it takes me to post Now, I know that apologizing doesn?t make the fact that I made you wait so long any better, and I?d allow you to torture me as I have Obi-Wan in this story to make up for it, but my parents pay too much my college to allow for the depression, insanity, and recovery time. Besides, I can?t write anything else if all I want to do is play with my stuffed animals

    I am truly going to miss working on this story. When I posted the first chapter of this, I was just hoping that a few people would like it. I never would have believed that I would enjoy writing fiction as much as I have since then. And a large part of that is the warm, encouraging responses that I have received from you, my readers. I cannot adequately express the extent of my appreciation. Thank you. This story would not be what it is without your comments, suggestions, questions, bribes, death threats, offers, and begging. After all, there is nothing like guilt for motivation

    By the way, in the case that anyone might be interested, I have started another Jedi Apprentice story. It?s called Tomb of Souls and you can find it right here: Forum9/HTML/001678.html Forum9/HTML/001678.html The first chapter will be up soon, and no, I am not kidding when I say that

    And finally, here it is.

    The end of Requiem for a Padawan.

    Someday
    When my life has passed me by
    I?ll lay around and wonder why
    You were always there for me

    Chapter Twenty Four

    Warm.

    He yawned.

    Warm.

    He turned over onto his back.

    Warm.

    He smiled contentedly.

    So warm.

    Jedi Apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi awoke slowly, staring blankly at the ceiling above him as he gradually began to feel the soft material of the pillows that were under his head and the blankets that were covering his body. Several moments passed until he perceived that he was enjoying the fact that he was warm, until he discovered that he was somewhat aware of his thoughts. As soon as he noticed that he was semiconscious, Obi-Wan instinctively pulled the covers closer to his body and closed his eyes again, purposely willing himself back to sleep. No. Not going to get up, the young Jedi told himself firmly. Not now. Don?t want to. Not leaving. Nice and warm. Yes. Warm. Should sleep. Need to sleep more. Sleep now. Sleepy. Tired....... He yawned again. Even after sleeping for quite some time, Obi-Wan was still tired; he could feel the fatigue that he?d become accustomed to pulling on him, sitting in the back of his mind and calmly waiting for him to given into it once more. But for whatever reason, his exhaustion wasn?t as bad as he remembered. While he let the warmth that he felt crawl over his arms and chest, Obi-Wan admitted to himself that he actually felt much less tired than he had been used to feeling lately, that his weariness no longer had such a stranglehold on him that he wouldn?t be able to push it away if he desired. Yes, I can get up if I want to. Not that tired anymore......no. But I don?t. I don?t want to. No. Not getting up. I?m warm. Want to sleep. Going back to sleep now. Right now. He exhaled slowly and cleared his mind as he tried for several minutes to drift back into complete unconsciousness, uneasily fidgeting as he attempted to regain the serenity that he had experienced only moments before. Annoyed that he didn?t seem to be succeeding, the Jedi Padawan sighed in frustration. I don?t understand. What?s going on? Why can?t I sleep more now? I was just asleep-I?m tired. Why not? What?s wrong? He blinked rapidly and harshly rubbed his eyes once he had closed them again. Light, Obi-Wan realized sluggishly. Yes. It?s not dark. There?s light in here. I can see it......feel it on my face. That?s why it?s not working. I can?t sleep with the light on. But I never let light into my room when I?m sleeping...... Puzzled, he quickly opened his eyes and immediately looked for the offending source of illumination. Once his gaze found the large window on the wall behind him, he stared at it uncomprehendingly, watching the bright yellow sunlight that was filtering into the room skip and dance over the glittering buildings of the unending city beneath him. The Jedi Apprentice followed the heavy traffic traversing the bright blue sky with his eyes as he thought. Where.....where am I? Buildings..... City......Coruscant? Yes. Of course. That?s right. I?ve seen that before. That?s Coruscant. And......I?ve seen this same view somewhere before now. The same exact view. Many times when I was standing there-when I was-but that means that-is it- Suddenly Obi-Wan turned his head and discovered that he knew exactly where he was as he looked at the room that he had been sleeping in.

    My room.

    I?m in my room. My old room. Yes. It?s my room. Really. Even with the few possessions that he used to have decorating his room missing, he was still able to recognize his particular room in the Jedi Temple after having lived in it over six years. As the last remnants of sleep fell away from his mind, Obi-Wan sat up in his bed and examined his surroundings again while he confirmed that he was in his assigned quarters at the Temple. Yes, my old room, he realized happily as he jolted into complete awareness. It?s my room. My room. Mine. On Coruscant.....in the Temple. I?m in the Temple. I?m in the Temple now. Again. Obi-Wan broke into a wide gri

    Thank you, Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi. That was a beautiful ending to a beautiful story.

    Have you noticed you write about young Obi-Wan's life better than the "official" people - Jude Watson...? Really, after reading all these wonderful works here at this forum, I simply CAN'T think of Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon without remembering this story, and others. Well, good luck on your next story!*

    *(Feels like saying Must it really end?

    Ah... the ending...

    ( After reading, Lalika and Kalika sit at the computer, gazing in amazement at the computer screen while their mother yells at them to get down for dinner...)

    That was a beautiful ending JOWK. Thanks so much. It was really worth the long wait... ( hint hint) ANyway, I hope you'll start another tale soon, because you really have a talent for writing... And don't forget the JC family thread ....

    THanks once a gain. Kalika and I thoroughly enjoyed the story.

    OKAY ... I was just thinking......

    Qui-Gon isn?t going to do that to me again. No. He?s not going to leave me. He promised, and he won?t break that because he cares about me. He does. He told me so. Yes, he did. Qui-Gon does care about me. So everything is fine now. I never ever have to think about that again. Not again. Ever. I am okay. Everything is just like it was before. I don?t have to be sad anymore.

    That makes Qui-Gon's death ten thoushand times worse then it already was.

    *Glances over again to make sure that her mom didn't hear that, and sighs in relief*
