    There was a shrill giggle from somewhere up the hall that didn't sound particularly human. It was followed by a Wookiee's chuckle.

    Cali and Obi-Wan both froze and didn't breathe. The sounds were too close for comfort. Silently, Obi-Wan drew away from her and straightened out his tuxedo, which had gotten a little rumpled. Cali made sure her dress didn't look to messed up and tried to fix her hair, which had seen better days. They both sat silently in the doorway, their backs pressed against the wall until the sounds drifted away.

    When the hall was silent again, Cali whispered, "Maybe it would be wise to head back."

    Obi-Wan nodded, standing up and glancing into the hallway. The coast was clear and he took Cali's hand, kissing it once before leading her down the hall. Cali glanced nervously about for anyone else, but it seemed most had headed back to the dance. She guessed that she and Obi-Wan had gotten a little carried away and was secretly relieved for the interruption before they had gone too far.

    "I think I better do a quick once-over in the refresher," Cali said, blushing a bit now that they were among the other Jedi. She let go of his hand and headed over, but then stopped when she saw Meri being shuttled away by one of the Masters. "Meri?"

    "Cali!" Meri cried, looking a little disturb. "What's going on?"

    "I was going to ask you that," Cali frowned. "Why are all the Masters heading into the girl's refresher?"

    "I don't know," Meri said, looking very worried. "I was with Ken-Bui at the dance, but then he just bolted out like he had Sith to catch. He went in there, but the Masters took him out."

    "Are you all right?" Obi-Wan asked, coming up behind Cali and resting his hands at her waist.

    The girl Padawan suddenly took in the couples appearance. Despite her worry, she smirked at them. "Looks like you've had quite a night." Meri reached up and gave Obi-Wan a playful bunch and Cali a wink.

    "You're overreacting," Cali protested, although she knew full well that the girl wasn't too far off the mark.

    "I... didn't... do... anything... to Ieron." Ken-Biu struggled to say.

    "Yes. And that's why she's knocked out," answered one Master sarcastically. "What did you do to her?"

    "C'baoth." Ken-Biu managed to utter accross all the shields being forced on his mind.

    "Your old master. Figures you'd use that old excuse. If he had attacked her we would have felt it, like last time."

    "NO! Concentrated... energy..." The sedatives finally got a hold of him and he was KO.

    I agree we should start a new thread before the Big Bad Server comes and eats it up. I wouldn't do that since I'm so new, but I suggest Jane Jinn, Amidolee, or Jedi Knight Obi-Wan should.

    This starts somewhat earlier in the evening . . . would have posted sooner. Many apologies.

    Ieron slipped into her room sometime later, after wandering aimlessly. Her master was buttoning the cuffs of his shirt and gave her a surprised look. ?I know, I know,? the padawan began without waiting for the comment that was bound to accompany the look. ?I spent a little more time than I expected. Give me a few minutes, then I?ll be ready to go.?

    Tobias smiled. ?Take a little longer to scrub the arena than expected?? came the good-natured reply.

    Ieron blinked, pausing in midstride for a second. Then, she continued on towards her room, hoping the hesitation hadn?t been noticed. ?Yeah, that was it,? she replied vaguely.

    In the solace of her room, Ieron stripped out of her Jedi garments and searched her closet for a formal dress she had worn to a Senate function a while back. A smile formed on her lips as she located. The dress was a deep navy blue that fell all the way to the floor. There was a petticoat of mesh beneath that made the bottom flare out slightly. The bodice was simple with a square neckline held up by two straps, which extended to the back of the dress where they were intricately interwoven.

    The dress fit the young woman stunningly, having required no alterations when it was purchased. It accented her pretty collarbone and lithe frame well. Ieron always felt gorgeous in it. Carefully, she pulled her long hair back into a French twists, leaving a few wisps of hair to accent her face and threading some rhinestones in it. Then, she applied a little light makeup.

    ?See, I told you it wouldn?t take that long!? she declared when she reappeared back in the front room.

    Her master smiled dotingly, like a proud father. ?You look amazing, padawan.?


    Ieron had disappeared into the refresher, feeling slightly bored. With a sigh, she peered at her reflection, making sure that none of her makeup was smeared. As she began smoothing an uneven place on her cheek, a searing pain cut across her mind with enough force to drop her to her knees. Clutching her head in her hands, agony tearing through it, Ieron vaguely recognized the taint of the Dark Side as it tried to overpower her.

    Slamming up her shields, the padawan fought a wild mental battle against the unknown attacker, but to little avail. With stars dancing across her eyes and darkness fuzzing her thoughts, Ieron wished desperately for someone, anyone, to help her. Her limp form collapsed to the tile when she hadn?t the strength to fight any more.


    Slowly, painfully, the young woman returned to herself. Struggling to shift from her back, where she felt a broad, dull ache in all of her muscles, she felt hands reach down, skin on skin, restraining her and constricting what little movement she could produce. Opening her eyes, a bright light blinded her and she turned her head, trying to avoid it. ?Keep her still,? someone hissed.

    Cool hands caressed her fiery cheeks and Ieron heard a soothing voice that seemed vaguely familiar. ?Calm down, Ieron, you?ll be all right. I?m with you now, padawan. Lie still,? it voiced in slow, low circles. She blinked again, but the light was still too strong.

    Her mind surged and she remembered a bit of what happened, the taint that had oozed across her mind. Dark forces, evil, Sith. They need to know, her mind convulsed in jumbled thoughts. But, her lips wouldn?t cooperate, no sound emitted. Everything around her reverberated, and she got the impression there were numerous amounts of people around.

    ?. . . .not good, not good at all. . . . Ken-Biu? . . .you sure? . . . . It?s a pity. . . .deal with that later . . . .might be a relapse . . . can happen, although . . . stress-related . . . must have been vivid . . . We can?t leave . . . . infirmary? May be too late . . .? the original voice said, floating through her head, though she couldn?t grasp all the words. Darkness crept in again, and Ieron?s head slumped to the s

    Start a new thread? Do you ALL want to?

    The curiosity eating away at her, Meri snuck back out into the hall only to be spotted immediately by a Knight just promted to Master hood.
    As a result he was more than a little on the cocky side. Grabbing her roughly by the arm he started leading her back into the dance hall.
    His fingers bit into her arm and made her wince.
    "I thought we told you to stay in here."

    "Your hurting me, stop..."
    Just then she saw Cali and Obi-Wan approaching.
    When Cali saw her she called out to Meri.
    Meri answered and jerked her arm away from the Master. She knew she was going to have a bruise but she didn't care.
    Ignoring the Jedi Master's call to come back she hurried over to Cali and Obi-Wan.

    The three quickly filled each other in on what they knew, though it wasn't much. Finally Meri noted their dishevled appearance.

    "Looks like you guys have had quite the night."
    Despite the other girls protesting Meri knew she wasn't to far from the truth.

    With a twinkle in her eye Meri punched Obi-Wan playfully. "So you two are taking full advantage to the *relaxed* rules, huh?"

    They didn't need to answer, the look on their faces was enough.
    A tingle in the force and Meri knew that her Master was around. Glancing at the door to the dance hall, she saw him standing in the door watching them.
    She met his gaze with her own, until finally his eyes slid past her. Following his gaze she saw Cali looking at her funny, and Obi-Wan with a serious knowing look.

    When she looked back he had gone.
    "Just checking up on you I guess."
    Obi-Wan's voice was quiet. Serious.
    Meri laughed weakly. "Heh, Yeah, I guess so."
    The three stood in quiet for a minute then Cali spoke. "Well I guess I better go touch up my appearance."

    Obi-Wan smiled "You don't really need to, but go ahead."
    Cali laughed and then headed for the refresher leaving Obi-Wan and Meri standing alone in the hall. Everyone else had cleared out.
    "It's hard isn't it?"
    Obi-Wan spoke softly.
    "Hmm?" Meri looked up a distracted look on her face.
    "I said it must be hard, If I couldn't show my feelings for Cali...well I don't think I would be able to handle it."

    "Listen Obi-Wan, I don't want to talk about it, okay?" She cast a glance towards the door to the dance hall where Alex had last stood.

    "But Meri, the rules are relaxed tonight. Yoda said so himself."

    As usual when she was agitated, Meri's hand started fumbling with her braid.

    "Obi-Wan you don't get it do you?"
    She sighed and looked at him.
    "Something happened today, I don't know, someone said something that made him upset."

    "Upset?" He didn't question how she knew. He was her Master, Padawan's could tell that kind of stuff about their Master.

    Meri nodded. "I could tell." A far off look came into her eyes. "He was surpressing it. He wouldn't tell me."

    With another sigh she turned to Obi-Wan.
    "We walk a fine line Obi-Wan."

    Obi-Wan nodded. "I understand, but I still think a little kiss wouldn't hurt. Holding each others hands.Not in public though."
    he was quick to add the last part. "Just for tonight."

    She smiled at him sadly. "It's not up to me Obi-Wan. I'll be glad when this darn thing is over. Relaxed rules my lightsaber!"

    Obi-Wan chuckled. "I imagine it is easier to cope when you don't see everyone around you acting like love birds."

    Meri smiled genuinly. "Much easier Obi-Wan. Ohh and Obi-Wan?"


    "Thanks for listening. But don't forget. You can't tell anyone either. I'm afraid Cali is to close to the truth as it is."

    Obi-Wan shook his head. "She wouldn't tell anyone Meri, I promise."

    Meri shook her head. "No Obi-Wan. If she figures it out by herself, well then I can't help that. But please don't tell her. The more people that know, the harder it gets.
    And if she does figure it out. I hope you tell her not to breath a word."

    Obi-Wan nodded. "Okay Meri, Okay."
    Just then Cali returned from the refresher looking much more put together.

    The three then headed back into the dance hall.

    Kithera winced and Qui-gon looked at her in utter amusement.
    "I didn't step on your toes did I?" he asked with a grin. Kithera shook her head, "No, but did you feel that?" she asked. Qui-gon paused Kithera could sense him feeling the force for some disturbance.

    "Something happened outside." he said opening his eyes.

    "You don't have to go do you?" Kithera asked plantively. She had been so happy the last couple of moments with Qui-gon holding her and the music playing. Qui-gon shook his head wordlessly and pulled her closer.

    "Do you know how much I love you?" he asked.

    "No, tell me." Kithera said grinning.

    "More then anything in the world. I love you so much it hurts and I need you so badly that when you're not there I feel lost." Qui-gon continued.

    "Oh really, Qui-baby. Love must have addled your brain because I don't remember you ever spouting so much mushy dribble before." Kithera teased. "But I get the drift."

    "And how much do you love me." Qui-gon asked with a laugh. Kithera paused and rolled her eyes.

    "You do ask such silly questions. Why I don't care for you at all." she said grinning at the shock on Qui-gon's face. "As for love...well" she continued. "More then Yaddle loves Yoda."

    "Are you sure? That's a lot of love." Qui-gon said grinning at her.

    " Well, you don't have his ears or lovely shade of green but you'll do." Kithera said giggling. "Not for me though, I prefer someone such as....Perrian...." Kithera exclaimed. The young knight bowed,

    "I would ask for this dance from the lovely knight Rinani but I fear I was intterupting something personal." he said.

    "Oh no, I was just telling Qui-gon how much I despised him." Kithera said giggling, "although it is good to see you. again."

    There was the sound of a small chime which signalled the beginning of dinner, kithera smiled again. "I would be very pleased to allow you a small dance after dinner." Kithera continued "And I would like to talk to you sometime."

    Perrian bowed again and Kithera allowed Qui-gon to escort her off the dace floor and to her seat. The both sat down just as Meri, Obi-wan and Cali walked through the door.

    "Uh oh.' Kithera said quietly, "I think that Obi-wan has been making best use of this no-rules thing. you had better give him a warning."

    Qui-gon nodded darkly. "I will, right after dinner. When you are enjoying your dance."

    Sorry this is so late, I had to go out this evening before I could finish it. This takes place just after Meri and her date leave Meri and Alex's quarters.
    - Rani

    "What do you mean, we're going to pick up your date?" T'lor asked as they made their way through the corridors of the living quarters complex. "When I showed up at your quarters this afternoon, you weren't going to the dance at all, and now you have a date?"

    Rani grinned. "Well, not really a date?I guess I have an open invitation to change my mind about a date, and I've changed my mind. I think maybe I hurt his feelings somehow when I started quoting rules, and he was being really sweet, too?so I should make it up to him and graciously accept if it's not too late."

    "You quoted rules to a guy inviting you to a dance?"

    "Well, he's a Master. People might get the wrong idea?"

    "A Master?" T'lor was definitely intrigued. "Which one?"

    There was a pause, then Rani answered, knowing what would come next, "Master Arieh?"

    Sure enough, T'lor stopped dead in her tracks. Rani calmly turned the hoverchair around to face her and receive the lecture. "Alex Arieh asked you out to a formal dance and you quoted RULES to him? Are you completely brain-dead?"

    "Yeah, maybe..." Rani looked chagrined.

    "You've only had a crush on him for years?what were you thinking?"

    "Ancient history, T'lor. And don't say it like I was the only one who had the hots for him back in school either. You, Kithera?heck, he even had some of the non-humanoid girls chasing him." She gave T'lor a significant look, "At least when I was failing and had to repeat drive mechanics, I came by it honestly."

    "You didn't think I was going to let you have Alex all to yourself, did you?" T'lor smiled, and shared with Rani a memory in her mind of Alex with his robe and tunic off, sweaty and smudged with hyperdrive engine grime, hair wet with perspiration. "That was such a great semester?" she sighed dreamily.

    "The best." Rani agreed, closing her eyes and enjoying the image and T'lor's pleasure. "We never did properly thank Kithera for rigging the environment settings just before class, though."

    "You think we all just outgrew it, or did he just lose some of his appeal along the way?" T'lor mused.

    "Lose his appeal, are you kidding? He's better than ever, if you ask me... charming, attractive, sensitive, and with passing the Trials and being permitted to take on a padawan, he's matured too. I think we all just outgrew it?started concentrating on our lives and our futures as Knights or Healers or whatever."

    Rani turned the hoverchair around and the two women continued down the corridor together. "Now that I think about it, the Council threatening to pigeon-hole me as a healer was probably what drew my attention from Alex. I was so focussed during that one-year trial period they gave me to prove them wrong, I hardly thought about him, not even when he was helping me with one-on-one training."

    T'lor nodded. "I can see that. I think I stopped being infatuated with him around the time The Brat and his age group all hit puberty."


    "Once I saw how stupid it looked, so many of the older initiate girls giggling and teasing and hovering around The Brat, I figured we all probably looked just as stupid drooling over Alex." T'lor explained.

    "Good point." Rani felt her ears go red. Alex probably hated the attention from them back then as much as Obi-Wan hated it now, and probably even more once he became their teacher, yet he'd never let on, not even once.

    "Thanks." T'lor pointed to the door as they approached Alex and Meri's quarters. "So if you've changed your mind about his invitation, I'm assuming you no longer feel uncomfortable with being a Master's date?"

    "Oh, I still feel uncomfortable about being his date for the dance. I don't think it would be appropriate, and besides, I thought I was your date?" Rani returned the wink T'lor had given her earlier.

    "But then?why are we stopping by his quarters?"

    "Because I owe him an apology for hurting him, and becaus

    Thanks, JKOW. Time for a little Obi-torture, methinks... (insert maniacal laughter here)...
    - Rani

    Rani had been manning her post near the front doors to the dance, taking photos of the couples as they arrived. Later, she decided, she'd make her way around the tables after dinner, and capture for posterity the mixed groups of Jedi of all ranks and ages laughing, dancing, and enjoying themselves. The collection would be a wonderful wedding gift for Yaddle and Yoda, and she could make extra copies for everyone else.

    T'lor returned with three glasses of refreshments, setting two of them down on the edge of Rani's hoverchair. "Where's Alex?" she asked, looking around the large room.

    "He just excused himself and stepped outside. Probably rescuing some Initiate's kitten stuck in a tree or something equally chivalric." she chuckled as she picked up her drink. "Thank you. This thing makes a nice little coffee table, doesn't it?"

    "Cup holders would be perfect?and a side pocket to keep vid program listings, too." T'lor frowned for a moment, "Do you sense anything?weird?"

    "I thought it was just me! Like a ripple in the Force, but hard to pinpoint. It was a lot stronger a few minutes ago, though." Rani saw T'lor nod in agreement, but she was still frowning. Rani closed her eyes, concentrating hard on the disturbance, but it was quickly fading, elusive. "I've felt that before somewhere?last night, in the infirmary?." Then the ripple faded completely.

    T'lor caught sight of a few Masters walking quickly into the hall, talking to some other Masters and a Healer, then most of the huddled group left together just as quickly. Alex reappeared at the door, but made a beeline for the remainder of the group of Masters. "I've got a bad feeling about this."

    "They'll tell us if it's something really bad. For now, let's just enjoy our blissful ignorance." Rani placed the cup down and picked up her camera. "Hey, you should go ask Alex to dance when he's done talking over there. I want to get a picture of the two of you dancing, and besides, he might tell you what's going on."

    "What about you?"

    "Go ahead. I want to take some more pictures?" she glanced over as the doors opened again, revealing Meri, a red-headed girl she didn't know, and a very dishevelled Obi-Wan. "Ha! Check it out!" she hissed at her companion, but T'lor was already on her way over to Alex and hadn't heard her. Rani moved her chair to line them up in the frame and took the photo.

    "Hi Meri, Br-?Obi-Wan." Obi-wan shot her a warning look at her near slip of the tongue. //Sorry Brat?//

    Obi-Wan slipped an arm affectionately around Cali's waist, and gestured with his free hand. "Rani, this is Cali-Ann. Cali's an exchange student from one of the local public schools."

    "Hi Cali." she smiled warmly and reached up to shake her hand. "I hope you're enjoying yourself, living in the temple."

    "It's different, but I'm starting to feel really comfortable here." Cali answered, leaning into Obi-Wan a little.

    Rani could resist the temptation no longer. "Obi-Wan, what happened to you? You haven't been in another fight, have you?"

    Obi-Wan turned pale. "No, of course not, I --?"

    "It's just that you're perspiring, and your cummerbund is crooked?" Rani continued the torture.

    "I was running down the hall, and bumped into someone?" he cut in before she could continue, adjusting his cummerbund. //Knock it off, will you? I was with Cali for Force's sake!//

    "Oh, that explains it." Rani replied nonchalantly. //Well, DUH! I could tell what you'd really been up to as soon as you walked in the door, Brat.// "It looks like they're getting ready to start dinner. Shall we grab some seats?" She turned the hoverchair to lead them to one of the tables Qui-Gon had saved for them.

    //Right, how could you know I was with Cali and not clowning around with Ane or something?// The group approached Qui-Gon and Kithera, and greeted them.

    //Because your fly is open, stupid.// she replied just as her victim was standing before his Master.
