    Nice way to leave us all panting for more, Antigone. Now get back in here and tell us what's really wrong with out Obi - aside, that is, from being shot in the back, and addicted to painkillers, and just generally screwed up and over, in this fic. Great angst, great suspense.

    I've really been enjoying your rants on my little short story board - but - as Qui-Gon would undoubtedly say - first, we are Jedi. Translation: Finish your story - or we release the cyberhounds. :eek:

    I get the feeling you people want a postie, no? Well, I still say that I should stick with the 'Obi dies before anyone finds out what's actually been going on' - but I'm afraid of the cyber-animals.

    Cyn - Ah, from the mouth of Qui. Now, why would I ever want to disobey such a man? :D

    Kitara - All you people do is threaten. :D

    Kitiara - Definitely one of the more frightening aspects of my day.

    sheleigh - Thank you! But you just had to mention ferrets, didn't you?

    Naeva - You're in luck!

    Jenny - ::glares at sheleigh::

    Kitty - Don't cry!

    Oh, and I lied. In two more posts from *this* one you?ll find out?I just had to leave it here. I think it stood better on it?s own ? I didn?t think that I would go this in depth with this scene, but I did and so this is what came out. This is one of the scenes that has been in my mind forever and I can honestly say that I will be glad to be rid of its persistent bugging. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did finally writing it!

    And one final plea: I posted a fic (completed, short) Oseanaca and, though most of what I write doesn't turn out exactly how my mind's eye envisioned it, this came pretty damn close. If anyone would like to, say, read it, I would be greatly obliged. :D Self promotion is not really my thing, but upping it for a third time just seems pathetic.

    Everything stopped.

    The youth?s scream pierced the air and everything simply ? stopped; the yelling, the shooting, all of it ? at least for Qui-Gon.

    Actually, to a certain extent, the killing did slow. Blaster fire thinned and some holstered their weapons ? whether out of actual concern for the boy?s life or fear for their own is debatable ? but, nevertheless, it was by sheer luck that the Jedi master, oblivious to all but his padawan?s pain, crossed the room unscathed.

    Or ? perhaps ? the will of the Force.

    He dropped to his knees beside the fallen boy, unsure of whether to leap for joy at the rise and fall of Obi-Wan?s chest, or panic at the labor with which each breath was drawn. Murmuring meaningless words of comfort, Qui-Gon?s calloused hand sought the boy?s small one ? lying limply at the side of his unconscious body ? while the other found its way to the padawan?s chest, barely touching, careful to not put added stress on the abused lungs. The master pulsed the Force through Obi-Wan?s injured body, coursing it into the boy before beckoning its return, demanding a report of his apprentice?s injuries.

    Nothing.

    Not nothing; there was something, but it was indecipherable, blurred. The Force waves returning had been ? altered.

    Frowning, he slid his hand underneath the light tunic, brushing his palm against Obi-Wan?s bare chest. Again, he sent the Force and again the same result. The boy?s Force signature seemed distorted; it was there ? the light that was his padawan impossible to mistake in any form it might assume ? but twisted.

    Though the discovery was disturbing to say the least, Qui-Gon pushed it to the back of his mind ? instead focusing his energies on discovering the outward sign of injury. He would not be able to further examine ? and correct ? what he felt ? or rather did not feel ? if Obi-Wan was dead.

    Finding no wound on the boy?s stomach or chest ? but spurred on by the amount of blood which already clung to his robes ? Qui-Gon, released the small ? so very small ? hand and, with a tenderness belied by his great stature, turned Obi-Wan on his side, finally discovering the blaster mark.

    Qui-Gon steadied the boy, mindful of the still rasping breath, and laid a hand over the mangled flesh, heedless of the crimson blood seeping through his fingers. Another wave of the Force was collected and pushed into the padawan ? this time directed specifically at the wound. Thankfully ? oh, how he thanked the Force ? Qui-Gon?s wave returned with a clear assessment of the injury. It wasn?t life threatening ? at the moment. Some torn muscle, a nicked artery, a kidney bruised from impact ? possibly a few other moderate internal injuries would turn up upon deeper investigation ? but Obi-Wan was stable.

    Stable, but in need of urgent medical care.

    The Jedi master channeled healing Force directly to the torn tissue and the blood-flow ebbed. As the artery?s nick clotted leaving only a small amount of blood ? comparatively ? running from the wound, for the first time since he heard the heart-wrenching scream of agony, Qui-Gon became aware of the world around him.

    Hands never leaving the precious boy before him ? the boy which he had come far too close to losing moments before ? the master raised his head and looked at the scene before him. Most had ceased fighting ? only a few random shots to be heard ? and fled. Fear of an enraged Jedi master, Qui-Gon mused offhandedly.

    But, despite the small comfort in knowing the chance of being shot had greatly lessened, another knowledge pulled at his very being. Polusti ? once proud, strong ? knelt next to the lifeless form that was his daughter ? rocking. His hands hovered over her body, head bent, and on his lips words of an ancient language ? prayers for his lost child.

    Without thought, Qui-Gon sent tendrils of the Force out to the body, checking ? in vain ? for some glimmer of life. However ? and Qui-Gon had known this ? there was no chance of finding such a thing; the bolt had pierced her heart. Her

    Antigone, that was amazing! I can't really say anything else, except that it was beautifully written.

    Oh- sorry about the ferrets... didn't think anyone had them around. ;)

    Eagerly looking forward to more! :)

    Very nice, Antigone, very nice.

    So now Qui's, and more importantly us, is going to find out what's wrong with Obi. Oh goody, it's about time. :D (So I like to see Obi get hurt. Ok, one breaths away from death. So sue me. :) That's not wrong is it?)
