    So sorry for the horribly long delay! I just got caught up with Darth RL and could not free myself until now?hope it was worth the wait...

    More info, see chapter 1



    ?Did you really think that I would believe you? Do you have any idea how long I?ve been waiting? You said five days, it?s been twelve!? Samaron screamed as he paced in the spacious sitting room, brilliant red robes swishing against polished brown boots. Each step faster, each step drawing the chief nearer to a full blown temper tantrum ? one of the many annoyingly childish actions Obi-Wan was sure the small being was capable of ? the flailing of the man?s arms simply lending more credence to the thought. ?Is it your custom, your *highness,* to keep more than hospitable men guessing as to when you will grace them with your presence??

    ?Samaron,? a man dressed in rich, deep purple robes, embroidered in silver, spoke somewhat exasperatedly, ?I have already told you what happened. My ship?s hyperdrive overheated and we were forced to take the time to fix it. It was more damaged than I initially thought and the power needed to repair it was taken from the nonessential operating systems ? namely, the comm.? The man?s voice was decidedly annoyed, but carried with it little of the contempt his counterpart?s had, ?Despite what you believe, I was not indulging in pleasure slaves for the past two standard weeks.?

    ?Then what would you call *that,* Polusti?? Samaron?s sharp gaze locked on a member entourage ? the only female in the group. The woman was quite attractive, young, but in pleasure slaves that would be of no object. She wore the finest garments; emerald green robes, impeccably woven and fitted to be both tasteful and flattering. Her dark hair was pulled up into a delicately twisted bun adorned with green jewels ? she must be quite the performer to receive such gifts, Obi-Wan thought wryly.

    Polusti motioned for the girl to stand next to him and she immediately obeyed. Placing a gentle hand on the young woman?s shoulder, Polusti answered, ?I would call *that* Nariba...my daughter?

    ?It is a pleasure to meet you, Uncle,? Nariba spoke softly.

    Obi-Wan exchanged a look of surprise with his master. The two Jedi had been standing off the side quietly observing the interactions, always ready to jump in should the palpable tensions escalate to something of a more harmful nature, however, they had not expected this turn of events.

    Samaron was Nariba?s uncle?

    The girl bowed formally, her eyes down, preventing her from observing the mask of pure contempt settling on Samaron?s features. Nariba did not see it, but her father did.

    ?I think that we are done, for now, Samaron. If you don?t mind, I would like to be shown my quarters.? Polusti wrapped a protective arm tightly around his daughter as the girl erected herself. He spared one final glare at his brother before turning and stalking out, leaving a young servant boy chasing after.



    * * *



    ?Well, this was unexpected,? the mirth danced in Obi-Wan?s eyes as he sat down across from his master in one of the lush chairs of the common room.

    ?Yes,? Qui-Gon rubbed his forehead, ?Quite. It seems that we are in the middle of a brotherly squabble.?

    A small smile fluttered across the padawan?s lips, ?And we?re the parents??

    Qui-Gon chuckled and rose, walking towards the other side of the room ? towards his bedchamber. As he passed Obi-Wan?s chair, he affectionately ruffled the boy?s ginger spikes, ?If so, you can be the mother.?

    Obi-Wan quickly stood and turned, an exaggerated glare burning into the back to the master?s head. Qui-Gon laughed again, ?Give me a moment, Padawan ? I want to see if our mission briefing stated anything about family ties ? then we will go visit Chief Polusti.?

    The boy answered obediently and slowly began making his way to his own bedroom, but sped up his steps the moment Qui-Gon closed his door. Entering, he yanked open his nightstand drawer and quickly grabbed a small blue container ? one of many. He placed the contraption to his neck and depressed a

    No need to beat yourself up over that post, it was great. But now you seem to be suggesting that Obi-Wan became addicted to whatever substance he was getting back home. So even if it started out innocently enough, it is now an addiction where the withdrawls are causing need for pain meds and a second addiction- brilliant kid!

    Obi seems to be heading for a big crash. Addicted to one substance, and we still don't know what it's for ;) , and using another that could also prove addicting, a tense situation with a volatile king where things might explode at any minute... not a good time to be handicapped. He needs to tell Qui-Gon what's going on, but I suspect he is deep into denial and won't until forced to. I'm loving it all. :)

    What if Obi's source for the pain killers gets cold feet, he's gonna be in a world of hurt, and I know he's the great "strong in the force Kenobi" but he can't keep those shields up forever. The withdrawals gonna be hell I think. anyhoo see ya 7

    Oh, Oh...Obi-Wan can't keep this up for much longer...something's got to give. He's heading for a big crash I think...and we don't even know why he's dependent on the original substance.

    You're doing a fantastic job. Can't wait for more!

    You've really planned this story out well... I'm scratching around for new praise here, lol. You already know what I think of this - but: It's shibby! And I hate it when "Darth RL" interferes. :mad:

    Figured, since I don't have a post entirely ready yet (I'm shooting for tomorrow) I'd answer some of your kind feedback (and up=)

    PadawanKitara- you're right, that's what I seem to be suggesting [face_mischief]

    Abbi_Cee - he definitely needs to tell Qui, but he's needed to do that for a while :)

    Jedi7 - who says he's gonna make it to withdrawl? [face_devil]

    Lyla - Interesting choice of words you used...
    Lore - hehehe, we're good for each other's egos, aren't we?

    Ewen and Naeva - thank you :D yes, I do enjoy me being to only person who know what's going on...well, technically one of two people, but I think it still applies. LoL

    Nikita and Draigon_myth - I'm glad you found it too! LoL, welcome and I hope you continue to enjoy!

    How do I keep missing these posts?!

    Wonderful, Antigone! But... what's wrong with Obi? Besides the fact that he is addicted to something... er maybe more than one something that is...

    More soon... right? :D

    Surface! Surface!

    Just delurking here to say that I love this fic. I want to know what Obi's on too and how he's going to get out of it (if he does). But if there is one thing the boards have taught me is patients. I might be yelling at the computer because authors pick the worst places to leave but I know there will be more. So, I'll take a couple deep breaths here and wait for the next post. And in case you get any ideas, I have rabid hamsters I can use against you. :D Great so far.

    ~Swede :p

    Dive to lurk! Dive!

    Um, yoohoo, Antigone - you might just want to consider a nice little posty, here. Otherwise, I think someone is going to suggest letting the dreaded cyber-hounds out of their cages - and giving them a whiff of YOU.

    Where are you, Girl? Leaving us like this is just plain cruel!!!
