    Data Entry: The Best Part of My Life
    20:00 hrs.
    As I look back on my life, one period of time out shines all others. It was a time I would not trade for anything. The time I speak of is the time that Obi-Wan Kenobi was my padawan.
    I will admit in the beginning it was anything but smooth sailing. As I think back I can only wonder what made me think I could prevent something that the force was clearly willing to happen. What was I thinking to turn down the opportunity to teach and learn from such a promising Jedi initiate? It took him to be willing to give his life for mine and countless others.
    But I thought my fears were solidified after Melida/Daan. Was I ever wrong. Master Tahl is probably somewhere in the force laughing at me saying*I TOLD YOU SO*. Yes Tahl, you were right that the bond that was broken could be mended and made stronger with time and patience.
    Officially I may have been the master and teacher, but I learnt so much from Obi-Wan and will continue to do so. Which is a point he would probably make some wry remark about or debate with me, but it is a fact that I know is true.
    But right now he can't argue with me, he is off on a mission with Anakin, while I sit here reminiscing. Force how I wish I could be there with them, but I must sit here and heal. Physically I am on the mend, but mentally I feel broken, not totally whole. One may say that I am refusing to acknowledge that I feel this way, this empty feeling, because Obi-Wan's now a knight, and that I need to move on But how does one move on?
    Obi-Wan was my third apprentice. My first one successfully became a knight, and moving on after that was hard, but nothing compared to this. My second apprentice turned to the dark side, something I blamed on myself for many years. He was the main reason I hesitated in taking Obi-Wan as my apprentice. I was afraid of giving my all, heart and soul, to another just to get burned. I am glad I took Obi-Wan as my padawan and can't help but think I should have taken him earlier, but one can't change the past.
    It is because of his undying loyalty and caring for me that I survived my last mission to Naboo. There I was dealt what should have been a fatal blow from a mysterious warrior that was bested by my padawan, my son. Because of what he accomplished on Naboo, he is now my equal. A Jedi Knight. Nevertheless, I will still look at him as my son. Though not of my blood, he will always be my son.
    Once he returns with a with that hyperactive child, who reminds me of a young Obi-Wan, I will aid in his training of Anakin. He will have his troubles and questions, but just as he has always been here for me, I will be here for him. It's the least I can do for someone who has saved my life in more than one way and more than once. For that I am forever grateful.

    YES!!! I'm all for Qui-Gon living after Naboo. It was GL worst mistake!

    Thanks Healer Leona! I may write 2 or 3 more like this and post them here. But I don't think they will be from Qui-Gon's POV.
