    THIS IS A SHORT HUMOUR STORY BY CASSIA(NEED I SAY MORE?)
    FEEDBACK AND REPLY WOULD BE APPRECIATED


    "Sometimes You Learn the Hard Way..."


    Single Part Story


    TITLE: Sometimes You Learn the Hard Way...
    AUTHOR: Cassia
    SUMMARY: A short little vignette with no apparent plot whatsoever. Basically just a good excuse to have fun with my two favorite characters.
    TIME PERIOD: 10 years before TMP when Obi-Wan is 15.
    Rated: G
    DISCLAIMER: George owns all, and get's all monies, we just play.

    Obi-Wan winced and grimaced; pulling away involuntarily as Qui-Gon cleaned and applied synth-flesh to his raw back, arms and chest.

    "Hold still," Qui-Gon remonstrated, pulling him back and reaching for another strip of synth-flesh.

    "Easy for you to say," Obi-Wan couldn?t help thinking. "Ow!" he squirmed away again as the burning cleanser set another one of his already painful lacerations on fire.

    Qui-Gon?s firm hand once more pulled him back in his seat. "For the last time, are you going to sit still, or do I have to tie you down?" Qui-Gon?s words were exasperated, but his voice was amused.

    Obi-Wan eyed his Master with a scowl. "You are enjoying this Qui-Gon Jinn, and don?t you try to convince me that you aren?t!"

    Qui-Gon smiled slightly when his Padawan was not looking. The boy could be so stubborn sometimes. This really did serve him right.

    "Ow!" Obi-Wan gasped again, unable to help himself. He squirmed, but settled down quickly when Qui-Gon sent him a mental picture of being tied to the chair.

    He was trying to use the Force to dull his pain, really he was, but every time Qui-Gon touched him the pain flared up again, red hot and excruciating and he lost his concentration.

    "Well," Qui-Gon said cheerfully. "Maybe next time you?ll listen to me when I tell you not to tangle with a Scorpiolissian." The Master applied a healthy dose of antiseptic to another of the boy?s many upraised, bloody, poison-infected welts.

    Obi-Wan shuddered and squirmed under his hands.

    "I hope you?ve learned something from this," the Master added. He slapped the synth-flesh on.

    "Yes," Obi-Wan ground out through his teeth. He jerked slightly and gasped again as Qui-Gon continued to treat his injuries. "I?ve learned never to let you be my doctor."

    Qui-Gon actually laughed. "There you see?"

    Obi-Wan bit his lip as his Master slathered more cleanser on the infected injuries.

    "You?ve learned one important lesson already." Swish, clean, slap!

    "Ow!" Obi-Wan was getting tired of saying that, but he just couldn?t stop himself. "You think this is funny, don?t you?" he said dryly, gripping the edges of the chair tightly.

    "No," Qui-Gon shook his head, moving over to a particularly nasty welt on his apprentice?s arm. "Watching you get chewed up and spit out by that tentacled terror, that was funny." Qui-Gon was being particularly unsympathetic today. Of course, he hadn?t really thought it was funny. Well... maybe just a little bit, but only after he knew Obi-Wan was going to be all right.

    Obi-Wan grimaced. "You could have helped me."

    "I did help you. I note that you are still alive," Qui-Gon pointed out. "Besides, he didn?t really want to kill you."

    "No," Obi-Wan?s knuckles turned white from his grip on the chair. "Just maim me a little."

    "I think he thought you needed a lesson." Qui-Gon moved to his other arm.

    "And you agreed." Obi-Wan was not really angry with his Master. He knew what had happened to him had been entirely his own fault, but he was still irritated, and hurting.

    "You asked for this Obi-Wan," Qui-Gon pointed out calmly. "You cannot say I did not warn you."

    Obi-Wan?s scowl deepened. He had been waiting for that. He knew his Master was right. He should have listened to him in the first place. But did he have to rub it in?

    "Ow!" Obi-Wan jerked as a white-hot razor of pain shot up his arm. The sudden intensity of it actually brought tears to his eyes.

    Qui-Gon?s face turned serious as he paused to examine this wound. Swollen red welts traced around the apprentice?s arm, twisting their way up from his wrist to his shoulder like a tan

    I cant pull stories out of a hat especially when it is not me writing it. LOL Besides I don't think you would be seeing any of her stories(except those Trika is updating right now) for atleast a three weeks. She is going to be unable to write any stories during that time period.

    I don't know, but that's a very cool song. It might be the Emperor's theme, in fact.

    Yes, it was, but there is an almost identical version of it on disc 4 of the Original Soundtrack anthology.

    I'll tell where to get some good music. Have a listen to the "Shadows of the Empire" soundtrack. It's not done by John Williams (Joel McNeely), but it does have some very fine pieces of music on it.
