    Eeep.

    Please, don't hurt me! I know it's been a horribly long time since I updated. :_| Darth Real Life kept me insanely busy, as I said before. When I finally had time to write, I was completely blocked on both my fics. I posted on my other story, now it's time for this one. :)

    I have about two pages written. I also have to go back to school this Monday, but I will write the post a little bit each day, instead of all at once like I used to do. It's going to be long, I'm aiming for 15-20 pages. *falls on knees* Please, please stick with me until I finish it.

    I'll post it as soon as I'm done, regardless of the time. I'll even PM all of you, if you want. :) This story is NOT dead! It will be updated, as soon as possible!

    Thanks for your patience so far. *hands out roses and chocolates to readers* Hope you can still stick with this story. :)

    Why would PT want to run from them. If I were her, I would want to get caught ;)

    Wow, dead story. :eek:

    Kidding, although it's understandable if no one is reading this anymore :p it has been six months since the last update. :_| Bad me. :(

    I said this would be about 20 pages, but not true. I was at fifteen, and the finished post would have been over 40. :p Soooo, I'm cutting it in two. Makes more sense that way.

    WARNING!!!: This has some heavy kissing and petting, mentions of sex and a bit of nakedness. Just thought I'd let you know. I think I'm staying in PG territory for this one, but it's close. :p

    Okay, enough jabbering. On with the story!!!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Chapter XXXIV: Power Shift



    "Xani, help me out with this problem, would you? How would the hyper drive be repaired if the navigation circuits were melted?"

    I didn't look up from my datapad. "Why are you asking me? You're the one who's great at applied quantum mechanics."

    "Don't give me that, Xani. You're better at this than I am! Please, help me."

    "No. You'll figure it out, Shar. The answer's in your notes. Master Erost specifically mentioned it in his lecture two days ago."

    She sighed. "I wasn't paying that much attention."

    "And why not?" I said, trying to keep my amusement in check.

    "You were doing that thing with your hand, touching my neck! I can't concentrate when you do that, and you know it."

    "It's not my fault you lost focus."

    "Oh yes it is."

    I shrugged, not bothering to defend myself. "It was a way to pass the time."

    Shar reached out from across the table and touched my chin. I looked up. "Most of the class was watching us, Xani."

    "I know." I grinned.

    She shook her head. "You're evil, Xani."

    I stiffened a little at that. I didn't like hearing those words. "No, I'm not." I never will be.

    Her mouth twisted into a small smile. "Just try to keep your hands off me when we're class, please? My master expects me to be near the top in quantum mechanics, and I can't do that if you keep distracting me. I'm sure Master Jinn also wants you to be at the head of the class."

    "Of course he does, and I'll do my good little padawan routine and be the best for him. It is, after all, a Jedi's way," I spat.

    Shar's gray eyes darkened with concern. "You still haven't told me what happened three weeks ago, Xani."

    I did not look away. "Nothing."

    She frowned. "Don't lie to me, Xanatos deCrion. I've known you since I can remember, and I know something happened when you came to me that night. You made it quite clear when we were teen agers that a sexual relationship between us would be a mistake, and yet three weeks ago you come to me for sex. It's awfully intriguing, isn't it, Xani?"

    "There's no great mystery to it," I said. I didn't want to tell her what the council in all their wisdom (I mentally snorted) had done to me; it was too raw, too humiliating. I had a feeling it always would be. "And why are you complaining? I know you want this, I know you want to sleep with me."

    Her eyes changed, filling with hurt. "Am I so transparent?"

    "I never said that." I told her.

    She looked around. We were in the library. It was early in the day, before classes were set to start, and only the two of us were in the vast chamber, apart from Madam Jocasta. She began to whisper, which I thought was a futile effort. There was no one to watch or hear us. "I know I'm very clear about my relationship with you, Xani. I don't want to pry, but what happened? I'm your best friend."

    "You're also my lover," I reminded her. "You can't be wholly objective about this."

    "Does that even matter? I've never judged you. I've always supported you."

    "I know that, Shar. But I'm not ready to talk about it yet."

    "Are you sure?"

    "Positive." I want to forget it.

    She sighed, not pleased. "All right, Xani. I won't pry, but please, please consider telling me. I'll always be here."

    I smiled at her. "I'll always be here too."

    She smiled back, then laughed. "I hope you tell me befo

    I'm still reading, too! :)

    Thoroughly enjoyable chapter. You have such talent.

    Said librarian began to sputter in indignation. "The library has never been a place for this! You have always come here to learn, it's-"

    I laughed. "But Madame, I am learning. I'm learning how much she likes it when I kiss her."

    "That is not a valid lesson, Xanatos deCrion, and you know it!"

    "Of course it is." I kissed my best friend again. "Would you like to watch, Madame? You're welcome to."


    [face_laugh] Can't help but laugh at that. Xan certainly is a bad boy.

    Poor Darew, being confused and all. (And Xan too).

    The last scene was very ominous. I don't like how he treated Shar, but I understand where it comes from. :(

    Still reading. ;)

    I found that rather dark, actually. The way Xanatos treated her, and how Qui-Gon thought he was too emotionally dependent on her. His attempts to distance himself, to the extent of hurting Shi-Ara, and Qui-Gon's musing on how he must separate because it's the rules. No one came out of that situation unhurt, is the feeling I'm getting. Qui-Gon turns into I-won't-feel-anything man, Xan turns, Shi-Ara . . .

    Still, lovely post, especially after so long! :D *huggles*
