Title: Guilty until Proven Innocent Author: GKilkenny Timeframe: Jedi Apprentice Genre: PG Tissue alert Summary: Obi-wan's life changes when he kills a sith apprentice Disclaimer: I do not own any characters from Star Wars. George Lucas does. I am only borrowing them for fun. Thanks The force had announced its intention to wake the young man. Not a gentle awaking, to the morning lights filtering through the window. But an overpowering warning to wake and move quickly. At the same time as his eyes focused on the first rays of daylight around him, his hand had ignited his sabre, and in that split second between sleep and waking he was on his feet. searching for whatever the force had warned him about so impatiently. ?Master wake up? he yelled loud enough so all would hear. He had been in the outer room on a veranda of sorts, he and two other Padawan?s had slept there on mats throughout the night, whilst their masters had been in the main building. His Master and the others were keeping the inhabitants of this small island populus calm. The islands flat lands were populated by a hundred fishermen and their families, but ten miles inland was a ferocious volcano, which was on the verge of a major eruption that would destroy the whole island. The fishermen were Amanin. A species of tall beings with long arms, large hands, and yellow-and-green flesh. On their home world they were commonly known as Head Hunters because they enjoyed killing sentient beings and mounting their heads on long poles. But this group had rebelled against that way of living and had left their home planet and settled on the planet Yavin on this small island and became fishermen. The Jedi had negotiated a settlement with the mainland to relocate these people, who because of their background, had originally not been welcome on the mainland. The constant rumbling and eruptions were frazzling the people. Several times during the night and early just before the force demanded Obi-wan get up, tremors were felt from the volcano. In that split second he stood staring out into the street, nothing seemed amiss; The other two Padawan?s sprang to their feet. ?What? What is it? they said in unison. They turned when the three Masters rushed out to the veranda. ?What is it Padawan? The tallest of the three Masters asked. ?I sense nothing. He said. They looked out into the street where Obi-wan was staring. ?Having a bad dream? or is just that you don?t want any of us to rest ?Obi Wan? Padawan Garran snarled. ?Padawan? Calm yourself I?m sure Obi-Wan has a good reason? Garran?s Master Le- Lo berated. ?Yes Master? Garran looked sullenly to where Obi-wan was, and commented. ?It?s just that with all the tremors, I only just got to sleep and I am still tired?. Within the few seconds it took, for all Jedi to be roused out of their slumber and searching the force, the feeling of impending danger assailed first the Masters, then the other apprentices. Before they could react more than they had already, the thunderous impact startled all into spinning around. Locating, the cause of why they were all now standing gaping at the place were Obi-Wan had been asleep only seconds before.
