    Thanks to Rah-Ki (Master Mush) for beta-reading =) *bows*


    Thirteen-year-old Obi-Wan Kenobi plodded in from his day?s classes, mentally reviewing his long list of assignments. He held back a sigh as he dropped his satchel in his room. He looked at his sleepcouch longingly. He was exhausted. A day full of five mentally taxing classes only to be concluded in the gym was absolutely exhausting to the thirteen-year-old and he longed to put his head down and go to sleep until dinnertime.

    ?How were your classes today Padawan?? Qui-Gon Jinn called from a chair in the living room of the small apartment.

    Obi-Wan grunted as he left his room.

    ?That good??

    ?Five massive assignments all due in on the same day. Just peachy Master.?

    He ignored his Master?s soft chuckle as he sat down, datapad in hand. /Got to think positive./ Obi-Wan told himself as he scrolled listlessly through his latest batch of assignments. /One day this will all be over and I?ll have my own Padawan to laugh at./

    After flicking through the first four and deciding they were definitely too boring to get started on now, Obi-Wan came to the final assignment, hoping it was to be slightly more exciting than the others. Reading through, Obi-Wan perked up. Finally, something his Master could get involved with and, from what the young Padawan could tell, an assignment Qui-Gon would love to take part in.

    ?Master,? Obi-Wan called. ?Do you have a moment??

    Qui-Gon looked up from his own book ? a real, old fashioned and much loved hardback book he had owned most of his adult life ? and looked towards Obi-Wan. ?What?s the problem Obi-Wan??

    ?Well I was wondering if you?d be interested in sharing your point of view on a question I have here,? Obi-Wan replied. ?I think you?ll find it most intriguing.?

    ?Oh? What is the question??

    Obi-Wan grinned. ?Tell me Master, in your personal opinion, what came first: life-forms or the Force??

    ?Well that?s easy Obi-Wan, life-forms had to come first. If there was no life, there?d be no Force.?

    Obi-Wan shook his head. ?Ah but if there were no Force, there?d be no life of any kind ? Force sensitive or otherwise.?

    Qui-Gon blinked. ?The Force is all around us remember Obi-Wan? It surrounds us, penetrates us??

    ?And binds the galaxy together, yes I know Master,? Obi-Wan interrupted. ?But it comes from all living things.?

    ?Yes I know and that?s why life-forms came first,? Qui-Gon replied, sitting back with his arms folded as if he thought the conversation was over.

    ?Yes but if there were no life-forms for the Force to come from then there would be no Force,? Obi-Wan carried on, regardless of his Master?s conclusion. ?You can?t have on without the other.?

    ?But one of them had to come first,? Qui-Gon insisted.

    ?Well yes I know that,? Obi-Wan said slowly. He left ?obviously? and ?duh? unsaid.

    ?And it was life-forms that had to come first.?

    ?Why?? Obi-Wan asked. ?Why not the Force??

    ?Because life-forms did alright!?? Qui-Gon snapped.

    ?All right, if you say so Master,? Obi-Wan waved his hands to hold off any further argument.

    ?I do Padawan,? Qui-Gon retorted.

    ?I know,? Obi-Wan said. ?But the Force came first,? he muttered quietly.

    Qui-Gon?s stern gaze froze on Obi-Wan and the boy looked up from his datapad slowly, his face composed in an image of innocence. He blinked. ?Something wrong Master??
