    Sorry guys! I've been a little sidetracked.... which I guess you figured out by now.

    I haven't stopped working on this story, I'm just a little stuck right now. I got a huge brainstorm on another story I'm working on, so this one has just been on the back burner for the past little bit. Please don't give up on me!

    I'll tell you what I'm really struggling with is the end. Do I stick to canon and get rid of her before EP II? Or do I go totally AU and give them a happy ending? I can see the good in both choices. Any thoughts?

    Well, hopefully this weekend I'll get a little time to sit down and type. Keep checking in every now and then. :)

    Whew! **wiping away the sweat and trying to uncurl my poor fingers**

    Here we go! A nice long post for all of you faithful readers. Again, I apologize for the delay, but you can't rush an artist, right? (Yeah, whatever, right?)

    Anyway, enjoy! :D
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Morning for Sari came with less joyous anticipation than the day before. There would be no stroll through the temple on Obi-Wan's arm today..... no special moments spent in the Room of a Thousand Fountains. No, today would be spent apart from him, until, of course, dinner with the galaxy's sexiest woman.

    Things had been much simpler when she and Obi-Wan Kenobi had been alone together on Teemar. Now, here on Coruscant, he had so many distractions that she was beginning to fear the certainty that there was no place in his life for her.

    //You knew that, Sari,// she told herself. //Why do you think he left in the first place? You shouldn't have come.//

    Tired of feeling sorry for herself, Sari heaved a big sigh and drug herself out of bed.... HIS bed. //NO! I am not going to think about him today,// she determined. Then she grabbed some clean clothes and headed to the refresher.

    Soon after she had finished getting ready for the day, Anakin popped in to inform her that he had a few morning classes. He suggested she stay in the temple until he was finished.

    "Sure," she agreed. "I might just go down to the library or the children's wing for a while."

    Anakin could tell she was in a rather somber mood and was sure he knew why. It had to be his master. The boy had been hopeful that Sari's arrival would spark a change in Obi-Wan who had been withdrawn and detached since his return from Teemar. He just wasn't himself. And now that she was here, his master seemed more on edge than ever.

    Too many times Anakin had felt a failure next to Obi-Wan's unflappable devotion to the Jedi way. His friend seemed to always be in control of everything, that at times he seemed almost unreal--- more like a programmed droid following his every given command than a human with his own free will and desires.

    Perhaps that was what bothered Anakin the most..... that he often felt stifled or smothered by the expectations of the council. Many times he felt so many emotions warring within him, while Obi-Wan seemed unwavering and unaffected by anything that came his way. Then Anakin would feel guilty, like he was a disappointment as a Jedi despite his title of the 'Chosen one.'

    However, Obi-Wan had never once belittled his padawan for having emotions and occasionally losing control. The older Jedi only tried to guide Anakin in the ways of controlling those emotions so they did not gain the upper hand. While Obi-Wan was confident of his own abilities --- he was well on his way to being regarded as the top knight in the order aside from the council-- he never tried to compete with Anakin or put on arrogant airs. Obi-Wan Kenobi was one of the most humble, most selfless people Anakin had ever met.

    Which is why Anakin now felt so responsible for his master's happiness. All these years of unquestioning devotion and then Obi had found something with someone outside of the order. Unfortunately, he was feeling torn between duty and his own heart's desires. Anakin couldn't bear to see such an injustice continue.

    "Sari, can I ask you a question?"

    She blinked in surprise and replied, "Sure, I .... I guess so."

    "How do you feel about Obi-Wan?" He needed to know.

    Sari felt her face heat up instantly. "I, uh, I care about him a, uh, a great deal, Anakin." She avoided his eyes, but he could tell from those few words and the actions that followed that she more than just 'cared' about Obi-Wan. He had noticed her hand move immediately to a delicate chain that hung around her neck and begin to gently rub the iridescent stone that was attached. Sensing her unspoken plea to be asked no more questions, Anakin smiled kindly.

    "Okay, well, I'm going to get to class, now. I should be back by lunch time. See y

    Thanks for the enouragement, and KM, you're not annoying at all! :) This is just a very busy week, so hang in there with me. I want to get this story just right..... Obi deserves it!

    P.S. Have you seen the new video on the official site? Lots of Obi in there with a great new starship. Check it out!! It helps me envision him for my story better. ;)

    POODOO! My quicktime will NOT work for me, so I havn't been able to watch much of ANYTHING lately. :(

    Oh, and to quote Sari in one part of 'The General Defender': Obi-Wan would get his later.

    And to quote Obi-Wan: "Sari, I hope you hold that thought." (in the ship)

    So...did she hold that thought? And is it later, if you know what I mean? ;)

    Will keep an eye out for a post! :D

    LOL!! You really know your stuff, KM! Thanks for reminding me of those lines. I think you grasp my intended meaning quite well. ;)

    And if you can't get that video, TFN has some pics from it of him.

    I really am working, guys, it's just such a busy week. My father-in-law is getting remarried this weekend, so it's been very hectic. Please bear with me. :(

    Don't worry about it, I'll just reread all of your old posts and the original story until you can get something up.
