It wasn't long before Master Jinn arrived. At the same time two other officers were dragging in the girl's attacker. They had to hold him up. "You!" The man pointed towards Obi-Wan with his cuffed hands. "You'll be sorry little jedi, sorry you ever tangled with me. I know where to find that girl again, and I know where to find you" The officers dragged off the ranting criminal. Qui-Gon looked at Obi-Wan, just what had his apprentice gotten himself involved in? The man was huge. "You did that?" Qui-Gon asked. "To him?" "Yes Master." "You know your in serious trouble." "Excuse me, Master Jedi." The offcer who had driven to the hospital interupted. "Sir, I know that you jedi have your own rules, but if you'd seen the little girl that fiend attacked, you would have done the same. He has a record that would reach the lower levels from here. In my oppinion the boy did the right thing." "And I thank you for your oppinion." Qui-Gon politely nodded. "He's in trouble for more than this." At that time one of the med-techs who had admited the girl braught over a man and woman from the treatment area. It was the girl's parents who had been franticly looking for her, They had arrived on another level and had seen her briefly. They couldn't stay in the treatment area, so they asked to see the jedi who had saved their daughter. Qui-Gon stood back unseen, he recognized them. "Thank you Jedi." They repeated with gratitude towards Obi-Wan. "Thank you." Obi-Wan bowed to them, but knew he was going to have a lot to explaining to do back at the temple. As Obi-Wan was being thanked the officer tryed to soften up QUi-Gon again. "Master Jedi, there has been a rash of child slayings in this area. We believe it was that man. If your young jedi hadn't come across them, we'd be looking for a body tomorrow." "I understand." Qui-Gon nodded. "Obi-Wan we must be going." He called and walked off. "I must go." Obi-Wan told the girl's parents, bowing and following Qui-Gon. "A thousand blessings of the force go with you young jedi." They called after him. 'I'm going to need all thousand of them.' He thought to himself. The ride back to the temple was silent. Qui-Gon didn't know what to think. He felt that the force had guided Obi-Wan to save the girl. the only real thing he was truly upset at was that Obi-Wan left the temple without telling anyone. He knew that his padawan's strange behavior of the last two days was because of Kasan's medling. The officer was right, if he had seen the man attacking the little girl, he would have found it hard to just restrain the fiend. The jedi master was more concerned with how easily Obi-Wan let the words of others hurt him. He knew if it was anyone but a jedi speeking the words, Obi-Wan wouldn't give it a second thought. Because it was said by jedi, the boy took it to heart. "Go to your chambers and reflect on the last few days. Wait there untill your called for." Before going to yoda, Qui-Gon made another stop at Kasan's. "There is something we need to discus with Master Yoda." He tryed to be diplomatic "I will not go unless summoned by Master Yoda." Kasan said smugly. "Your behavior is not fitting your rank." "I did not ask to teach the boy." "I know all about what you've been teaching, and it's not battle tactics." Qui-Gon snapped. "As far as I'm concerned, the only thing your fit to teach is a snake how to slither. Dougan desreves better than your nonsense." "I'm sure you'd like to repeat that in front of the council." Kasan bluffed. "Anytime." Qui-Gon turned on his heals and went to speek of Obi-Wan's punishment with Master Yoda. He told Yoda of the events of the last few days. "I don't know if I should intervene in or if this is Obi-Wan will have to over come himself." "Still at an age when affected by others his emotions are." Yoda said. "Control them he must. A man the boy wants to become. Wants to do what is right, but overdoes it. A great deal of passion this one has. Like his master. Speek to him I will, an idea I have." "Thank you for taking the time, I know how busy you are."
