    I can't believe I'm acually posting a fic....(SIRI don't you say a word...)

    Anyway...this is about Mace, as he is one of my fav charecters. (After Obi of course. ::sighs:: [face_love] )

    I don't really think this would really happen to Mace...which is why it's AU. I just like being a freaky oddball. :p

    Hope ya'll like it.

    P.S. I'm still typing the thing out...so if I take a while in between posts...don't kill me.

    Two figures disembarked from a gleaming transport onto one of Coruscant?s many landing pads, not a trace of hurry in their steps.

    Both dark skinned, they held a distinguished air about them, despite their worse for wear appearance.

    The man was dressed in a simple tunic and cloak. The lightsaber hanging from his belt marked him as a Jedi.

    The woman, although accustomed to finery, was perfectly at ease in her common nerfhide clothing. The tattoo on her gloved hand was the symbol of Alvarian royalty.

    The man stopped and attempted to hail a passing air taxi. Three taxis later?he was still trying.

    ?Should I try?? the woman asked in voice full of teasing.

    His scowl was replaced by a smug grin as the next taxi stopped.

    He opened the door and swept his arm in an elaborate bow. ?Allow me to escort you to the senate madam.?

    She quirked a smile. ?Oh Mace, I couldn?t possibly need protection anymore.?

    ?You obviously don?t know Coruscant, Lina.?

    Accepting his helping hand, she stepped into the air taxi with care, then turned and shot him a radiant smile. ?You know that I can?t refuse.?

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    ?Thank for the tour Mace. I know that you told our driver to take the long way.?

    The Jedi grinned. ?You don?t mind??

    Lina laughed. ?Not at all. I enjoyed it immensely.?

    ?As did I.?

    The woman?s brow furrowed as she though over his statement. ?But?you live here. You see the same thing everyday.?

    ?That is true. But?? He paused, searching for the right words. ?Sometimes things familiar need to be looked at with new eyes. You reminded me of this.?

    They pair stopped outside a door. ?Here is senator Aklish?s apartment.? Mace announced. ?Once you are with her, my mission is at an end.?

    Lina reached for the door chime, then stopped and turned back to her companion. ?Where do you go from here??

    The Jedi gazed out a window at the lines of air traffic outlined by Coruscant?s setting sun. ?Home.?

    A hand his arm brought his thoughts back to the moment.

    ?Mace?I never did thank you for saving my life. If you hadn?t stopped those assassins?? she let her voice trail off and gave a faint shudder.

    The Jedi put a comforting arm around her shoulders. ?All life is precious your highness. I?m glad you are finally safe.?

    Royalty and Jedi bowed to each other.

    Lina hit the chime, but before the door was opened, she reached up and gave Mace a kiss.

    He just stood there as the ecstatic senator ushered the princess inside. He stood long after the door had closed, a hand resting where her lips had touched his.

    When he finally had the sense to began to make his way home, his thoughts were consumed with thoughts of the now completed mission. Or rather?the woman which the mission centered on. The woman whose voice he could still hear?whose touch he could still feel?

    The Master gave himself a rough mental slap. ?Snap out of it Windu. You are a Jedi??

    But not even a Jedi could have foreseen the certain? ?complications? that would accompany this mission.

    Need I use your own words against you?

    "Y won't I crtisize your work? Maby because I see nothing to critisize." -Wanna_Pierogi

    Now, maybe the quote isn't exactly perfect, but it fits. You have a lot of great stories that you really should post.

    And no, i am not just saying that! :p

    I'm not dead anymore!!! [face_blush] I'm REALLY sorry about the delay, but there's this little thing called life that keeps getting in my way. :_|

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Walking to his apartment, Mace had to fight to keep his thoughts centered. He felt like he was moving through a haze.

    He was so distracted that he didn?t even hear another Master calling to him. Only a hand grabbing his shoulder was enough to make him start.

    ?Mace! Are you alright??

    Mace blinked at the bearded Jedi, ?Qui-Gon? Yes?I?m fine. Why??

    Qui-Gon frowned at him, ?I?ve been practically shouting at you. Didn?t you hear me??

    Mace glanced around at the Jedi who were giving him odd looks as the walked past. He shook his head, ?No, I?m afraid not. Sorry Qui-Gon. My mind is on?other things.?

    The graying Master searched his friend?s face, obviously not satisfied. ?Is it something you would like to talk about??

    Mace started to say no, but stopped himself.

    Maybe talking to a friend could help. And Qui-Gon is the only one I know who would understand?

    He nodded. ?Yes. If you don?t mind??

    ?Mind? I?m getting worried my friend?did you see the Healers??

    ?This is coming from you?? Mace snorted. ?Yes Qui-Gon, I went to the Healers immediately after returning from my mission, as per to regulations. I am in perfect physical health.?

    Qui-Gon never took his eyes off Mace as they walked?trying to figure what could be wrong.

    Trust me my friend?you would never even come close?

    When they entered Mace?s apartment, Mace motioned Qui-Gon into a chair, then went into the kitchen station to make some stim tea.

    ?So what is going on Mace?? Qui-Gon called from the sitting room. ?I?m a little surprised you went on a mission, and without taking half the council with you.?

    ?You and everyone else in the temple.? Mace replied. ?I guess I just needed to get away.?

    A pause, ?May I ask why??

    ?I?m not sure. Perhaps I merely needed a temporary change of pace.?

    In the time it took Mace to make the tea?he related his entire mission Alvara. How the royal family was being threatened by rebels, how he had stopped an assassination attempt on the princess, how the family had gone into hiding, how princess Lina knew they needed to request help from the senate, how she had barely gotten off planet alive.

    ?Well, everything seems to have ended up fine. I still don?t see what the problem is.? Qui-Gon commented as Mace set the tray down.

    ?No you don?t.? He sat down and rested his elbows on his knees, leaning forward. ?And nether did I at first. How do I say this...Lina?I??

    Qui-Gon patiently sipped his tea, waiting.

    ?I?m?I think that?no, I know that?I?I?m falling for her.?

    Qui-Gon choked on his tea, spitting the blue liquid everywhere. He coughed a few seconds, staring goggle eyed at his friend. ?WHAT???!!!?

    Mace didn?t think he?d ever seen his college?s face look like it did now. Not even when his Padawan had accidentally spiked Master Nectoa?s punch.

    ?You..you?re serious!? It was not spoken as a question, but Mace nodded anyway.

    ?Whoa! Whoa WHOA! Let me run this through my head a few times?you?re telling me?that you went on a mission to try and wind down a bit?and you end up falling in love with a princess? What the?you?did I miss something?!! How the heck did that happen?!!!!

    Mace studied his folded hands, mildly surprised to find them trembling. He stilled them, ?How do these things ever happen? I wish I knew. I?m so confused.?

    Qui-Gon stared, still sunned. Then he smiled. Before bursting out laughing.

    Mace glared at him, ?I fail to see what is so amusing.?

    Qui-Gon was holding his sides, laughing uncontrollably. ?All?all of this!? He choked out between fits of hysteria. ?Who?who would have?would have thought?that?you?you?of all people?would be?oh wow!!? Qui-Gon gasped, finally remembering to breath.

    Mace never stopped glaring as he watched his friend begin to control himself, ?Feel better now??

    Qui-gon grinned at him, ?You better believe it. Thanks, I needed that.?

    Ummm...ok...not that anyone is acually still reading this...

    I found this short little thing that I forgot to post so I figured what the heck I've got nothing better to do. Besides sleep...but who needs that?

    DWB has me in his death grip! He's choking the life out of me!!! HEEEEEELP!!!!

    :_| :_| :_|

    ~~~~~

    ?Mace, I really don?t know what else to say. What happens next is entirely up to you.?

    Mace nodded, absently rubbing at his eyes. ?I know. Thank you for listening. But if you don?t mind I?d like to be alone for a while. I?m tired and I think a lot of meditation is in order.?

    Qui-Gon smiled as he stood. ?Of course. And Mace, no matter how much I tease?I really do understand. And you can count on me to stand by you whatever you decide.?

    Mace also smiled and gave his friends shoulder a fond squeeze. ?I know you will. You?re a good friend Qui-gon. I?ll talk with you later.?

    After Qui-Gon went his way, Mace went into his room, stripped off his cloak, and unceremoniously collapsed on his sleep cot.

    His need to alleviate his repressed exhaustion far outweighed his desire to meditate away his confusion.

    Yes?a few hours of blissfully peaceful sleep sounds better then?

    The Jedi didn?t even finish his thought before the darkness claimed all coherency.

    But his sleep would be anything but peaceful?

    ~~

    ?Mace, help me!!?

    The panicked cry bit deep into the Master?s heart.

    But he couldn?t move?he could only watch?

    ?Mace please! Hurry!?

    He stood frozen in place?watching helplessly as the blaster bolts raced towards the trapped woman?the woman he was supposed to protect?the woman he loved?


    ~~

    ?NO!?

    Mace jolted awake, shooting up on his cot.

    ?No??

    ?Yes, everything is fine. Why do you ask??

    Mace sighed, and rubbed a hand over his face. ?No reason. I...just?wanted to check on you.?

    A soft chuckle came from the viewscreen before him, ?Mace you?re so sweet.?

    The Jedi master laughed. ?I?ve been called a lot of things?but somehow ?sweet? doesn?t ring any bells.? He hesitated, looking down at his hands, ?Lina?would you??

    ?Would I what?? the princess prompted.

    ?Would you?possibly?be free for diner tomorrow??

    A pause, ?I?m afraid not.?

    Mace dropped his gaze and sighed in disappointment. ?Of course, I understand.?

    ?But?? her eyes sparkled with a hidden smile, ?I would be free for lunch.?

    A grin cracked its way across Mace?s dismal looking features. ?Great! I?ll pick you up at say?1300??

    ?Perfect. It?s a date then. See you tomorrow.?

    Lina cut the transmission leaving Mace staring at the viewscreen in shocked horror.

    ?a...DATE?!

    Siri and DOT...WHATEVER! I really don't feel like starting World War 3 with you guys.

    ~

    Mace leaned back in his chair, still staring at the dark viewscreen.

    Windu?you?re crazy. CRAZY! Absolutely insane. Imagine, a Jedi asking someone on a date. A DATE! And with a princess at that. It?s time you check yourself into the nuthatch.

    Biting back a moan at his own stupidity, the Master stood and stretched. He glanced at the crono.

    Oh come on! I only slept a half hour?

    Sighing Mace ran a hand over his face, trying unsuccessfully to clear his bleary vision.

    He knew that as tired as he was, sleep would not come back to him. Not after a dream as disturbing as the one he had just experienced.

    He decided that trying to meditate was the best thing to do. Settling cross-legged on his mat, he closed his eyes and let out a long breath. Drawing on the force, he bent the shimmering energy around himself, letting it swirl around his mind and sooth his raging emotions. Diving deeper into the flow of the force, he pondered on letting it carry him along and seeing if it had anything to show him. Releasing control and relaxing even more, he settled in for the ride?
