    Disclaimer: Not mine, except in my dreams?

    The Chosen One

    Qui-Gon woke abruptly from his sleep and sat upright, his eyes wide open. The feelings invoked by the images lingered for sometime and it took a while for Qui-Gon to fully realise that it had been a dream. The same one he had been experiencing for some time now. He pondered that since he had returned to the Temple from his last mission they had increased in frequency and become much more vivid.

    He absentmindedly ran his fingers through his hair and pushed the bed covers from his legs. Silently, he left his sleeping quarters and padded on bare feet to the kitchen, getting himself a drink of water. He looked around the dark room and moved to sit on a sofa. Clearing his mind, he took a deep breath and let the reverie return to him.

    * * * * * *

    In a dormitory filled with sleeping younglings a small boy sat upright in bed, his eyes still closed. He wore a drowsy smile on his face and his arms were raised as if he was being lifted into the air. Slowly he lowered his arms and whispered one word, Master, before lying back on the pillow and settling into sleep once more.

    A young woman with long dark hair and bright green eyes that seemed to light the room sat at the end of the dorm and watched the boy with interest. She smiled as she heard the words he mumbled, and rising from her chair, she made her way through the room. Checking each child in turn, she adjusted a cover here and there until she reached Obi-Wan?s bed. ?It is time,? she thought, gazing at the small form whilst releasing an almost undetectable sigh. This was what she wished for her charges but it was always hard letting them go.

    * * * * * *

    ?Come in Master Jedi, I?m Astara A?Fayth one of the crèche workers,? a young woman with piercing green eyes opened the door wide gesturing to Qui-Gon to come through.
    ?We have been expecting you.?

    ?You have?? the Jedi replied looking almost surprised.

    ?Of course,? Astara smiled at him. ?You?d like to see the children.? It wasn?t a question but a statement.

    Qui-Gon nodded as Astara lead him to a large, pleasant room with huge windows through which the bright sunlight spilled. The children were eating breakfast, some still nodding and most sitting quietly. He had come to the crèche early and most of the younglings were still sleepy. All except one ? a little boy at the end of the large room who was bursting with energy. Qui-Gon stood silently, arms folded observing the running child who seemed all arms and legs, but with bright eyes that shone with excitement. He had come here because of a dream, he realised that perhaps the time had come for the dream to become a reality.

    The boy stopped abruptly and turned, sensing Qui-Gon?s presence, at once he became still as if waiting for some order or command. Qui-Gon began to recall his dream, the visions of a boy, his boy, who would serve beside him. A child who was strong already with the Force, but in need of training, in need of guidance and in need of a guardian. In his dream the Jedi had never seen the boy?s face; everything had been communicated through feelings.

    Qui-Gon brought his mind back to the present situation; the boy was still standing, waiting for the Master to give him a signal, a sign. Astara?s voice spoke quietly from behind Qui-Gon. ?You?ve got a live one there; he has so much to give. He?ll always have the strength t

    How sweet! What a perfect moment! :D This wonderful little viggie made me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. Ah, mush!

    Suddenly, Qui-Gon was surprised to hear a small voice in his head, faintly calling?Master.

    A neat moment, very cool how you brought in the dream.

    She knew he would soon return to the crèche after speaking to the council, the time was right ? the Padawan had chosen his Master.

    And what a lovely way to end it! The padawan chose the master - a nice twist. :)

    Very good work! =D= I look forward to more from you!

    Together

    It had been several months since Qui-Gon Jinn had taken Obi-Wan Kenobi to be his Padawan. Or rather, since Obi-Wan had called to Qui-Gon until he got the message. The Jedi Master chuckled a little now as he saw how foolish he had been not to realize earlier that a young one was reaching out to him as he had once reached out to his Master. He stroked Obi-Wan?s hair as the boy slept on the couch beside him in their modest apartment. They had been meditating together when Obi had fallen asleep, not uncommon for such a little one in a deep trance. Qui-Gon wished he could find sleep as easily, but was finding it hard these days.

    He knew he should not question the Force bringing him and Obi-Wan together, and indeed he could not imagine an existence without the child, but he sometimes felt out of his depth. When Obi looked up to him with those innocent eyes and his hand in Qui?s own the Jedi felt such an overwhelming responsibility - not just to make the boy a Jedi but also to make him happy.

    Qui-Gon rose, moving away from Obi-Wan to stand by the window and watch the sun as it started to set. He knew all to well that a Jedi?s path could be anything but happy, but he had such a desire to protect Obi-Wan from the pains of life. Perhaps, he mused, this was how a Father would feel towards his son. He wondered if this was how his Master had felt about him. Qui knew he was learning just as much from his young Padawan as his Padawan was learning from him. He took a deep breath and closed his eyes, focusing on his path and Obi-Wan?s ? they were Jedi and this was the way of things.

    Qui-Gon?s concentration was broken by a small hand tugging at his robe, he opened his eyes and looked down to find Obi-Wan beside him.

    ?Ah, I see you?re awake, my young Padawan.?

    Obi-Wan nodded, looking slightly unsure of himself.

    ?I?m sorry I fell asleep again, Master.?

    ?It is to be expected,? Qui-Gon smiled at the boy. ?You have done nothing wrong.?

    Obi hesitated leaning into Qui-Gon.

    ?What is it, Obi-Wan?? the Jedi Master queried.

    ?I had a dream,? the child replied. ?Only you?you?weren?t my Master. I, I was alone.?

    Obi-Wan?s bottom lip trembled as Qui-Gon kneeled beside him stroking his cheek.

    ?Dreams often show us what we fear the most, my young one,? Qui-Gon spoke gently. ?And I will always be your Master, your friend, even when I am no longer of this world.?

    Obi-Wan listened intently to Qui-Gon?s words as the Jedi continued.

    ?The fear will leave you when you accept it.? He faltered slightly realizing how much these words were for him as well as Obi-Wan. He stood moving to the kitchen.
    ?Dreams pass in time Obi-Wan; do not let them consume you.?

    The boy followed him, his face creased in concentration as he took in his Master?s words.

    ?I understand Master,? he spoke slowly. ?But sometimes it?s hard.

    ?Yes, my Padawan,? Qui-Gon replied, lifting the boy onto the work surface. ?sometimes it is.?

    There was a silence as Qui-Gon began to prepare the tea while Obi-Wan sat and watched.

    ?There?s something else, Master.?

    ?Oh??

    ?It?s about tomorrow.?

    Qui-Gon?s lips twitched slightly as he understood what Obi-Wan was referring to.

    ?Ah, I believe you have a training session with Master Windu.

    Silence.

    Qui-Gon placed the mugs on the counter and turned until he was standing eye level with Obi-Wan.

    ?It is important that you have these sessions with other Masters, Obi-Wan. They show you that even though we are all Jedi we have our own individual ways. In this case, different ways of approaching combat. It is important to your training.?

    ?Yes, Master?? As Obi-Wan looked miserably at the floor, he unconsciously spoke across the bond the two shared.

    Scary.

    Qui-Gon muffled a laugh; Obi-

    Oh, I loved this update just as much! I love the idea of Qui-Gon as this protector of Obi, it is very moving and sweet. And, being a mother as well...the emotion really strikes me as the same a father has for his son *sigh*

    Oh, and and one more thing...I think Master Windu is scary too!! LOL!! Perceptive little thing there that Obi, eh?

    When Obi looked up to him with those innocent eyes and his hand in Qui?s own the Jedi felt such an overwhelming responsibility - not just to make the boy a Jedi but also to make him happy.
    I loved that line, it really got across that parental feeling that you've got running through this, very nice!
    And I like how you tied in the dreams pass in time phrase, if obi had heard it in this context, makes sense why he'd tell Ani that!
    And Master Windu being scary [face_laugh] I love this obi, he's such a little boy- I mean that in the best sense- so innocent and reliant on qui *snifle*

    Adorable work, and beautifully written, I'm soo glad you continued!!!

    I love reading fics that give me the warm fuzzies. [face_love] You know, like this one! :D

    I?m so glad you?re my Master.

    He turned to see Obi-Wan still asleep, but with a half smile on his face.

    As am I, Obi-Wan. As am I.
    Awwwwww!! [face_love]

    Thanks for making my day with this cute little fic, Kestrel Kenobi! I just have to say that I hope that wasn't the last bunny to bite you. [face_batting]
