A bliss beyond compare. Images he could taste, and sounds he could touch. A sense of belonging, of peace. Yet, he was apart. The other's could sense him, but took no notice of him. It did not surprise him. They had lost their individual identities a long time ago. So how come he could remember who he was? He suspected it was all the studying he had done previously about the Force and his attunement to it. It perhaps was not the whole answer, but it was the best he could come up with at the moment. At the very least, it made sense to him. He had tried to communicate with the other side, but alas, he could not. It seemed that his studies only went so far and no farther. He knew he would have to figure out a way to send a warning and soon. Already beyond the bliss, he could feel the gathering storm clouds of darkness and chaos that he had felt right before his death. Unless something was done, it would one day consume nearly the entirety of The Force and very surely the very Galaxy he once inhabited. However that time was uncertain and he did not have all of his answers yet. As much as it pained him, those would have to wait for another day. He did feel certain that they would come to him in time. So Qui - Gon Jinn surrendered himself to the serenity of The Force, knowing that it would end all too soon. End.
