    -Runaway Train-



    PART ONE:

    ----
    Call you up in the middle of the night
    Like a firefly without a light
    You were there like a blowtorch burning
    I was a key that could use a little turning
    ----

    *Beep-beep*, *Beep-beep*, *Beep-beep*...

    Groggily, Bant Eerin patted around next to her bed for the offending alarm
    chrono. After a moment, her sleepy brain realized that it was not her wake
    up chime, but her comlink that had dragged her from her dreams. Glancing at
    the chrono, which Bant could now remember was on the table across the room
    (where Master Daria had put it so that the padawan would not just hit the
    sleep button and doze off again as she had accrued a habit of doing) the
    Calamarian yawned in irritation. Who in the world would be calling her at
    this unheard-of hour of the night?

    Dragging herself out of bed, the fifteen-year-old Jedi apprentice fumbled
    about in the dark for her comlink.

    "Padawan Eerin," she answered, trying to keep her voice from sounding too
    sleepy.

    "Bant?" the voice on the other end was soft, sad, lost...

    The last remnants of drowsiness fled from Bant's brain like mist fleeing
    before the dawn and she was suddenly very alert.

    "Obi-Wan? Obi-Wan where are you? Everyone's looking for you! Master
    Jinn's been worried to death, we all thought you were-"

    "Dead," Obi-Wan finished for his friend. "I know. Listen to me Bant,
    please," the young Jedi's voice was strained and Bant thought it sounded
    like he hadn't slept in days. "They've got to go on thinking that I'm dead,
    they can't know, all right?"

    "What?!" Bant was incredulous. "Obi, your Master-"

    "Will understand," Obi-Wan said, wishing he could believe that. "Please
    Bant, I'm running out of time. I need your help, but you've got to promise
    me that you won't tell anyone about this!" Obi-Wan pleaded with his friend.

    "I-I can't do that Obi!" Bant was tortured. "But I want to help you, please
    Obi, let me help you!"

    Obi-Wan sighed. Bant didn't understand, how could she? How could anyone...

    "Obi? Obi-Wan are you still there?" Bant's worried voice brought him back
    from his hopeless reverie.

    "Shh, I'm here," he hushed her. "I need you to tap into the Temple files
    and find the record of a student named Marc Valar, then transmit it to my
    'link," he instructed.

    "Okay," Bant agreed, switching her data pad on and up-linking it to the
    Temple network port in the corner of her roo

    PART TWO:





    ----


    So tired that I couldn't even sleep


    So many secrets I couldn't keep


    Promised myself I wouldn't weep

    One more promise I couldn't keep
    It seems no one can help me now
    I'm in too deep there's no way out

    ----


    Obi-Wan leaned against the cold stone wall at his back and pushed down
    the
    throbbing headache that was working on him as he reviewed the
    information
    Bant sent. Compressing it onto two tiny data chips, Obi-Wan hid one
    inside
    the thin, sleeveless shirt that he was almost wearing and slid another
    into
    a crack in the wall behind him. Even if they got him, Yanni would know
    where to look.

    The young Jedi closed his eyes for a moment. He was so tired, yet he
    couldn't sleep. How had this all gone so wrong?

    It had started out so innocently, with a simple mission to a troubled
    planet... but look where it had landed him now. Obi-Wan had not slept
    in
    almost a week and could not remember the last time he had eaten
    anything.

    Sitting in an icy sewer with dozens of soldiers combing the streets for
    him,
    the seventeen-year-old was beginning to feel at the end of his rope.

    The Lao Tlur had seized power so much faster than anyone had thought
    possible... even the Jedi had been caught when the trap snapped closed.

    Obi-Wan remembered Bant's words: *"Master Jinn's been worried to
    death..."*
    Oddly enough those words gave him more comfort than anything could
    have,
    because it meant that Qui-Gon was still alive to worry about him, and
    back
    on Coruscant no less.

    The apprentice was glad that somehow, his Master had managed to escape
    the
    death trap that Li Sao had become. For the past three weeks, Obi-Wan
    had
    thought him dead; killed in the blast that wiped out the other Republic
    representatives and had very nearly claimed Obi-Wan's life as well.

    Yanni and the other underground workers were the only reason that the
    young
    Jedi had survived, and not fallen into the hands of the ruthless Lao.
    They
    had been very kind to him; hiding and protecting the young Jedi like
    one of
    their own. Rations were extremely short, but even if all they had to
    share
    was stale water and tubers, they gave it willingly.

    After destroying the Republic embassy, murdering the ambassadors and
    declaring themselves a sovereign presence, the Lao Tlur shut down all
    interstellar travel, forbidding off-planet flight and trapping the
    injured
    padawan on a planet where he had just become a number one enemy of the
    new
    government.

    Naturally, Obi-Wan fell in with the resistance movement. Yanni and her
    friends nursed him back to health, and after everything they had done
    for

    -Runaway Train-


    PART THREE:


    "He must still be on Li Sao," Qui-Gon said without a doubt.

    "There is no way that he could have gotten out," Mace Windu concurred,
    making this one of the rare cases where the two Masters actually agreed
    on
    something. "The ship that brought you out was the last one to escape
    before
    the Lao Tlur cut Li Sao off from the rest of the galaxy."

    Qui-Gon felt a stab of guilt. True, he had been unconscious at the
    time and
    in serious condition, but he still could not get over having left his
    Padawan behind. He had never believed that Obi-Wan was dead, but
    finding
    out that he was indeed alive was a bit of a shock.

    Adi Gallia laid a gentle hand on Qui-Gon's shoulder as if feeling his
    thoughts. "It wasn't your fault Qui-Gon," she whispered quietly, for
    his
    ears only.

    Qui-Gon clipped a nod that said he knew, but it didn't help.

    "But why ask for records...? Bant, are you sure he didn't tell you
    anything
    else?" Siri, Adi's Padawan pressed the Calamarian girl.

    Bant shook her head sadly. "I told you everything he said. He
    wouldn't
    tell me anything; I got the feeling he didn't have time. I'm sorry."

    "Don't be," Qui-Gon assured. "You did well in coming to us Bant."

    Master Yoda humphed softly and all eyes turned to him. "Valar's file
    he
    wanted? Perhaps a key to this it holds. Remember Valar I do," the
    little
    green being shook his head gravely. "One of the few who turned to the
    dark
    side, after a Master they were. Iotarian was he and strong with his
    mind.
    Foresee the future was his gift, always it seems he could tell where
    and
    when, happen things would. Partially natural to his species these
    traits
    are, aided by the Force, he was very powerful. Perhaps too powerful.
    The
    greater the skill, the greater the danger..." Yoda sighed.
    "Unknown what became of him, it was..."

    "Until now," Qui-Gon finished for him, the pieces snapping into place.
    Of
    course, that explained the way the Lao had been able to predict
    everyone,
    even the Jedi, so well and act so accurately...

    Yoda nodded.

    "Master, with permission?" Qui-Gon inquired urgently.

    Yoda nodded again. "Interfere with planet we cannot, but if Marc Valar
    is
    behind all this, then a Jedi matter it has become, not dictated by the
    Senate. He is our responsibility, as is young Kenobi. Assign several
    to
    this mission, we shall."

    PART FOUR:

    ----
    So many secrets I couldn't keep
    Promised myself I wouldn't weep
    One more promise I couldn't keep...
    ----


    Obi-Wan hung, half conscious, from the prison wall. Since they had
    found
    the data chip in his pocket, they had beaten him unmercifully. The
    pain all
    blended into one now as the questions turned into a blur...

    A tall man with dark brown hair and jet black eyes strode into the
    room.

    "Jedi," Marc Valar breathed with a sneer. Clamping one hand on
    Obi-Wan's
    forehead, he grinned evilly.

    For a moment, Obi-Wan felt disorientated and ill as the world blurred
    around
    him. Then the room came back into focus only Marc was no longer there.

    The door scraped open and Yanni was dragged into the cell; Obi-Wan's
    heart
    wrenched. This was it then. The Lao Tlur had won.

    They were asking him questions again, but Obi-Wan wouldn't answer, they
    could kill him, he wouldn't answer...

    Then they started on Yanni...

    Obi-Wan's breath caught painfully as they wrenched scream after scream
    from
    his friend. His head whirled dizzily. The resistance was dead, what
    did it
    really matter anymore anyway? There was no one left to betray.

    "Stop! Stop it!" Obi-Wan said, his voice thick with pain. "Leave her
    alone, I'll tell you what you want to know..."

    When they had all they wanted to know out of him, the Lao smiled
    wickedly.
    "Thanks kid, you've been a real help to us," they said. Turning, one
    put a
    shot right through Yanni's chest.

    "Noo!" Obi-Wan screamed in horror, he couldn't believe this! "I told
    you
    what you wanted," he cried.

    "Yeah, which makes you useful, but not her," the men laughed and left
    him,
    dragging Yanni's body out with them.

    "Yanni," Obi-Wan whispered, tears rolling down his cheeks.

    The Dark Jedi grinned as tears slid from beneath the young Padawan's
    closed
    eyelids. Using the natural ability of his species, coupled with his
    Force
    power and Jedi training, Valar forced the horrible images upon
    Obi-Wan's
    mind, knowing it was just as real to the boy as if it were truly
    happening.
    He had long ago found this one of the best methods of questioning. It
    was
    harder to do with a fellow Jedi, but Obi-Wan was yet a Padawan and in
    his
    weakened state, easier to overcome than he would have been otherwise.

    The boy had already told Marc what he wanted, now, the twisted Jedi
    would
    have a little fun... *"How would you like if your Master came here for
    a
    little visit hm? Maybe you'd like to see him die too..."*

    Obi-Wan reacted violently to the images, the scenes that Valar forced
    upon
    him, struggling and pulling against his bonds, but it didn't help. In
    Valar's twisted world of shadows, nothing could help.

    Then, the Padawan stopped struggling and went limp against the wall as
    if
    accepting defeat. It was too much. Something gave in Obi-Wan's mind
    and
    the sobs came uncontrollably. After a while, they subsided and were
    replaced by a dead emptiness that crept over Obi-Wan's soul.

    Marc Valar smiled cruelly.
