    Ok, I know this is bad of me, but I couldn't resist.

    No sending me email bombs, alright? I know this is sad, but I warned you!

    Here it is. I hope you like it!

    Title: Sacrafices
    Author: Jacinta Kenobi
    Spoilers: None
    Rating: PG
    Time Period: JA, bi is almost 21

    *****
    It was supposed to be simple.

    The mission would only take two or three days. Nothing drastic. They would be back before Obi-Wan?s birthday.

    So why had things turned out so badly?

    Qui-Gon Jinn felt hot tears running down his cheeks. Things were not supposed to happen this way.

    Qui-Gon tried desperately to remember how he had gotten where he currently sat in the dusty street, hair askew, legs curled beneath him.
    *****
    Obi-Wan?s ginger braid flew, the silver strands of fabric glistening in the dim light as he turned his head quickly. ?Master!!? He cried, a bit of fear slipping past his usually excellent control as he tried to get Qui-Gon?s attention.

    Qui-Gon looked toward his padawan. ?What is the matter, padawan?? He asked quickly of the young man.

    Obi-Wan didn?t waste time explaining. He merely pointed, and Qui-Gon moved to the open doorway where Obi-Wan was standing. He looked out the door, and his expression became grim.

    Hundreds of burly purple-blue aliens were stalking towards them, weapons held in their hands, and hateful expressions covering their features. The aliens of Creeja were at least two feet taller than himself, and had caused his apprentice to understandably feel dwarfed, but the 20-year-old Jedi had hid it well. Obi-Wan never ceased to amaze Qui-Gon with his abilities.

    Qui-Gon turned to his padawan. ?Obi-Wan, get behind me.? He told him quickly, and Obi-Wan, knowing that the doorway would not fit both of them and that it would be better not to venture out until they knew what was going on, obeyed without question.

    Qui-Gon stood as tall as he could, making sure the aliens knew that he was not intimidated. When the aliens finally got close, one of them stepped forward. Qui-Gon recognized the being immediately. While the aliens were so alike that it was impossible to tell them apart by physical attributes, this particular Creejan wore flowing silver robes and several earrings on each ear.

    Lasun Eriyota. The leader of the Northern tribe of Creejans.

    ?Qui-Gon Jinn.? Lasun?s booming voice rang out.

    ?Leader Eriyota.? Qui-Gon returned, bowing formally at the waist.

    ?Save your bowing for someone who wants it!!!? Lasun demanded. ?Step outside, Qui-Gon Jinn. I have something to show you.?

    Qui-Gon gave the alien a wary look, but stepped out, barely noticing that Obi-Wan followed only a few steps behind him. He glanced in the indicated direction obediently, and saw heavy smoke rising into the air, curling with a mind of it?s own as it reached for the stars.

    His heart clenched. The only substantial thing in that direction that could be burned, since there were no forests on Creeja, was the Northern tribe?s encampment.

    Qui-Gon turned his gaze back to Lasun, keeping his face carefully blank. Tears glistened in the big aliens eyes.

    ?You said that they would not attack. You said that they were too far away to reach us tonight, and to give you one more day to get a hold of them and settle this.? Lusan said, his voice rough.

    Qui-Gon winced. He HAD thought that the Southern tribe was more than a 30-hour track away! They must have split up, he realized. That must have been only part of the tribe. He bit his lip. If so, it was no wonder the Northern tribe was frightened! The Southern tribe must be?almost 5 times there size!

    Lasun leaned forward, not bothering to conceal his emotion. ?My wife and children were sleeping when they came, Jinn. My beautiful wife and two babies?.gone. Murdered in their beds!? Lasun fairly screamed at him.

    The leader of the Northern tribe stepped back almost sadly. ?I thought we could trust you, but you are obviously partial to the Jera.? Jera was the Southern tribe?s title. ?You must pay f

    Wonderfully written, but so sad!! :_| Poor Obi-Wan! Why does he have to be so brave and noble? :( :_|

    You know, this mention of Obi's age kinda shook me, I will be 21 in ten days, so it makes it all so much more realistic to me...

    Excellent job!

    Clare- Thanks. Yes, I am very twisted. ALRIGHT! Fine, I give up. Yes, I'll write a sequel...you guys are never happy, you know? and you do know that by all rights I SHOULD be writing a post for my other story, DON'T YOU? 8-}

    OtK- Oh man, I believe it. Did you get any weird looks? :D

    Enigma-It didn't have one...sorry, I didn't think it was that moving. I thought it was sad, but not quite as sad as that. Alright, yes, but no getting mad at me when I don't post on Enemies of the Past, alright?
