    Yep that's true. Maybe Qui-Gon should invent Obi radar? ';'

    And now the angst begins.

    Obi-Wan's gone missing and now Qui-Gon has to delay his search and start negotiations.

    I suppose by the time he finds Obi that the young man will feel a great sympathy for the Theosnens and their cause.

    OOOOOOH!

    I've been looking forward to a new Jane Jinn Story for ages now!

    Jane! This is excellent! The angst had begun.

    BTW Rosemary, I love the idea of an Obi Radar. But what model? Like Koala and other wild animal tracking devices using an ear tag? Or like a turtle with a big black box device on their back?

    Exercise your Jedi patience, people. This is a long story. There will be some torture, but much later. Hopefully, it will be enough to satisfy you rabid fans!

    *****

    "Wouldn't he be better off in hospital?"The voice was female, vaguely familiar, but not Rixi.

    "He?s fine where he is, he just needs a little rest. All the medical help on Theosne can?t cure amnesia, anyway, so there?s no point in taking him there and attracting unnecessary attention.?

    Ben opened his eyes and glanced around. Dr. Maethum was there in the room, and with him a middle-aged woman with brown hair, not yet starting to go grey, cut short at ear level. They were looking at each other and didn?t seem to notice him.

    "You shouldn?t have brought him here. We don?t know anything about him. What if he gets up in the middle of the night and murders us all in our beds??

    "Bedec, don?t. He?s a nice boy.?

    "How do you know??

    "I know. I have that feeling that it will be all right, that I?m doing the right thing.?

    The woman was silent for a moment.

    "You trust my feelings, don?t you, Bedec? Remember that I had the feeling we should get married? And when Rixi was born, that she would survive? And all the other feelings I?ve had during the years??

    "Yes,?the woman admitted, still reluctant, but rapidly weakening.

    "Well, trust me now, then. Ben will not murder us in our beds. He is a nice boy. He might have done one or two things that the Getters would consider bad, that?s all.?

    "You think he?s a fugitive, don?t you??

    "Darling, why else would he be running around in his underwear after curfew? He?s just lucky that I was the one who almost ran him over, and not the Getters. He?d be in prison before you could say ?innocent? and we both know what that?s like, don?t we??

    The woman glanced over at Ben and froze just long enough for Dr. Maethum to realise that something was wrong. Turning slightly, he looked at Ben as well, and smiled.?Hello. How are you feeling??

    "Better,?he replied, sitting up.?Dr. Maethum, you think I?m a fugitive??

    The woman frowned and said,?I?d better get started on lunch.?

    When she was gone, Dr. Maethum asked,?So you remember me??

    "Yes, you and Rixi, but not her, I?m afraid.?

    "That?s my wife Bedec.?

    "Oh.?

    "And in answer to your question, I can?t think of any other reason for you to be wandering the streets in the middle of the night, dressed only in a pair of boxers, unless you were visiting your girlfriend and her father kicked you out. In any case, I had the feeling that you were running away from something or somebody, so I brought you in here as fast as I could, before the Getters got you.?

    "I don?t think I did anything wrong...?

    "Sometimes, it?s enough to look sideways at a Getter, let alone act suspicious,?Dr. Maethum sighed.

    "A Getter??

    "Don?t you remember? We?re occupied by the Get-tro-wens. We call them Getters for short. They ?get? the best part of Theosne.?

    "Oh.?

    "It would be better for you to lie low for a while, especially if you can?t remember what?s what. Getters don?t like it if you act too stupid, and they?d never believe you had amnesia. If anybody?s looking for you, we?ll soon hear about it. I?ve got a friend at the police station who can give me information on the sly.?

    For the first time, Ben began to wonder if anybody was missing him, and who they might be. A father, a mother, a girlfriend? Then there was a slight knock at the door and Rixi came in, holding a bulging cloth bag.?Old Lady Geard said we could have these. They should be about your size, Ben.?

    "How many times have I told you not to call her that??Dr. Maethum asked.

    "Obviously not often enough,?Rixi replied, then released the clothing from the confines of the bag and spread it out on a nearby chair.?Trousers, shirts, pullovers, socks, underwear, even a pair of shoes.?

    "Thank you,?Ben said.

    "Was she very upset??Dr. Maethum asked.

    "No, not really. I think she was happy to find some use for it after all this time,?Rixi said.?We can get mor

    If Obi's not careful, Rixi is gonna talk his ears off. Can't wait to see him try and ride a bicylce! Oh, and what *was* the boy doing running around in only his underwear?! You are gonna tell us, right? Hee hee, I would have loved to see that....
    Ahem. I love this story! Can't wait for more! :)

    Four days later, Ben had settled into the Maethum household so well that he was now considered part of the family. That very morning, Mrs. Maethum had even suggested that Ben refer to them as Uncle Fulk and Aunt Bedec, and he had accepted. He had also recovered sufficiently to walk with Rixi to Mrs. Geard?s and get not only the remaining clothes, but also the bicycle to transport them with. He couldn?t believe that he?d forgotten what such a thing was, let alone how to ride it, but had soon picked it up again, only falling over once or twice. Now it was Dr. Maethum?s evening off, and he was preparing to take Ben down to the pub to meet some friends, as he said.

    "Can I come??Rixi asked, pleading in her impish way.

    "Certainly not,?replied Dr. Maethum evenly,?and stop twisting your hair. You?ll stunt its growth.?

    "Maybe I don?t want it any longer, and why can?t I come??

    "Because you are not old enough.?

    "I?m sixteen, dad! I?ll be seventeen soon!?

    "As I was saying...?

    "But I don?t have to drink. I mean, I could just have lemonade or something.?

    "No, Rixi.?

    "You never let me have any fun,?the girl pouted.?It?s a roaring wonder that you allow me to leave the house for school, let alone bicycle over to the ice cream shop in broad daylight!?

    "I don?t want you to run into a Getter patrol and get sent to prison, Rixi.?

    "What if Ben runs into one??

    "We?ll take that chance,?Dr. Maethum said.?Come on, Ben, time to go.?

    When they were outside, walking along in the cool evening air, he said,?Normally, I wouldn?t be taking you, either, Ben, but we have to risk it. If we can?t find out who you are, then you?ll need an identity disc, and I know someone who can arrange it.?

    "I appreciate it,?said Ben.?I know you?re taking a risk for me.?

    "Well, it?s not the only risk I?ve ever taken in my life. You really should cut off that braid, you know. It?s horrendously conspicuous.?

    "All right,?Ben shrugged.

    "I don?t want you drinking anything, either, by the way. Stick to lemonade.?

    "If you say so, Uncle Fulk,?Ben sighed.

    "I do. You don?t know how alcohol will affect your head injury.?

    "I thought you said it was pretty much healed. I don?t even have a headache anymore.?

    "Don?t take chances. If you can?t handle your alcohol and you get drunk, you?re ten times as likely to attract attention, especially Getter attention. Don?t do it.?

    "All right.?

    The pub was several streets away. Ben found himself wondering why they had not taken the car, but he looked around as they walked, and realised that there weren?t any other cars on the street. Everybody was either on foot or on bicycle. Apparantly, being a doctor had certain advantages. He also found himself watching for Getter patrols, but there were none, and they entered the pub unmolested.

    "A pint for me, and a lemonade for him, please,?said Dr. Maethum after they?d worked their way to the bar.

    As the bartender filled the glasses, Dr. Maethum glanced around the room and nodded to several acquaintances. Ben also had the idea that he was looking for Getters, because he turned back to the bar with an almost imperceptible sigh of relief and asked,?Have you seen Wylan this evening??

    "In the corner,?said the man, jerking his head as he placed the glasses on the bar.

    "Cheers,?said Dr. Maethum.

    "Cheers,?Ben said, tipping his glass and drinking deeply in exactly the same way. The colourless liquid was sweet and bubbly.

    "Come on.?Dr. Maethum took his glass and walked to the indicated corner, Ben following a step behind and to the right of him. Three men were sitting at a table and looked to be in earnest discussion until one of them looked up and caught sight of the doctor.

    "Fulk, you old sock!?

    "Wylan,?Dr. Maethum smiled.?Gentlemen.?

    "How many did you kill to-day??one of the other men asked.

    "None. It wasn?t worth the bother, they didn?t have anything to steal.?Ben recognised that it was a harmless ritual greeting and smiled as Dr. Maethum laid a hand on his shoulder.?Wylan, I wanted to ask i

    I love it Jane!

    Especially how everyone at the bar is Anti-Jedi because they thing the Jedi are helping the Getters. And the last line! WOW! I wonder what they think he's done.

    "whats a Jedi?"

    oh Obi, what are we going to do with you. He's gonna be scared out of his mind when Qui comes for him after all those lines, let alone the thought of what he had to have done to get a Jedi after him...

    always ready for more!

    Now just how in the heck did I miss a new Jane Jinn story???? Oh well I have found it now and am I ever happy that I did!!!!!

    Those men at the pub have some very strange ideas about the Jedi, eating babies, very funny! They are going to scare the daylights out of Obi filling his head with all that nonsense. This is only going to make it harder for Qui-Gon when he finally finds the young man!

    Hope we get more soon Jane, this is a winner!
