    Summary: Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker have grown up like brothers. Will they stick together like brothers when dark shadows start creeping closer?

    *******************************************************************


    Prologue
    Approx. 22 BBY



    ”Obi-Wan, don’t do this! I know you, you’re better than this!” the Jedi yelled.

    “Shut up! You know nothing about me!” Obi-Wan screamed back, his handsome features twisted into a mask of pure hatred.

    “Please Obi-Wan, please don’t take this last step. Please, we used to be…,” the Jedi pleaded, the question ‘why?’ clearly seen on his tanned face.

    “Stop! What we used to be doesn’t matter anymore. We are nothing to one another now! That is what matters!” Obi-Wan told him.

    The snap-hiss of Obi-Wan’s lightsaber humming to life enveloped the Jedi in a state of shock. There was no mistaking the significance of the moment. The crimson glow gave the Jedi his answer. Obi-Wan Kenobi had fallen. The dark side of the Force had stolen his soul. The blackness of evil had stained his heart. He was truly gone.


    *******************************************************************

    Blue-gray eyes snapped open as Obi-Wan Kenobi awakened from his dream. Sweat was beaded on his bare chest. He slowly climbed from the bed he shared with his wife and clad only in thin sleep pants, he made his way from the bedroom out onto the terrace. The night air was chilly, but it felt good on his overheated skin.

    “Come back to bed, my love,” his wife whispered, her arms wrapping around his waist from behind him.

    Turning in her embrace, Obi-Wan leaned down and connected their lips in a passionate kiss. All of his feelings, his fear and anger, his love and lust for her, it was all poured into the mating of their mouths.

    “I love you, my Ben,” she whispered as the kiss ended, her breath stolen by her husband.

    “I love you too, Dasha,” he returned. “I love you more than my own life. I would surrender everything that I have, everything that I am, for you.”

    Dasha leaned her head against his broad, bare chest and held onto him tightly. She knew he meant those words, but she worried what loving her that much might one day do to him. She didn’t ever want to lose her precious husband.

    Hi!

    I read Book 1 and I was intrigued.

    Now, I'm definitively hooked.

    To paraphrase C-3P0, "Oh, my!"

    And about the last line, all I can say is, "I have a bad feeling about this."

    MTFBWY,

    Lauré ;)

    Chapter 1


    “Dasha said you had another one last night,” sounded a deep voice from behind Obi-Wan.

    “Dasha needs to learn to mind her own business,” snapped the meditating Jedi Knight.

    A chuckle escaped the mouth of Anakin Skywalker as he stepped next to his best friend, his brother in all but blood.

    “She’s your wife and she cares about you. You are her business,” he scolded the older man.

    Obi-Wan slowly opened his eyes, his meditation ended.

    “I know she cares about me, Anakin. She wants to help me and be there for me and she is most of the time. But sometimes she can’t help. My dreams, my nightmares are…” he started, then stopped.

    “They’re just dreams, Obi-Wan. Dreams pass in time, you know that,” twenty-two year-old Anakin reminded his friend. “You have to stop letting them get to you like this.”

    Obi-Wan turned to look at his taller friend. “They’re more than just dreams, Anakin. Every night, I fall to the dark side in my sleep. It’s always so real. I’m always fighting someone; Qui-Gon, you, sometimes even my father or Garen.”

    Anakin cleared his throat and then rested a hand on Obi-Wan’s shoulder. “You know that we’ll never be in that position. No matter who we face, or what circumstances befall either of us, we’ll never do battle on opposite sides of the war. I promise you that, my friend.”

    Obi-Wan just nodded slowly. He wanted to believe Anakin. He wanted for the words to be true, but like so many things in his life lately, everything seemed to ring hollow to him.

    “Now come on, Master Xan sent me out here to find you. We received a summons from the Jedi Council. We’re going back to Coruscant,” Anakin stated cheerfully, his eagerness readily apparent in his attitude.

    *******************************************************************

    “Why do you have to go now?” Dasha angrily questioned her husband.

    “I’m a Jedi, Dasha, you knew that when you agreed to marry me. If the Council requests my presence, then I must go,” Obi-Wan stated, trying with all of his might to remain calm in the face of her anger.

    “Oh, of course,” she spewed sarcastically. “If the mighty Jedi Council wants you, you come running. But if I need you, you’re nowhere to be found. You’re either with your father or…” she managed before her throat suddenly clamped shut and she could no longer draw a breath.

    Obi-Wan stood across the room from his wife, his black-gloved hand clenched into a fist. His breathing had deepened. His normally calm blue-gray eyes had darkened. His entire being had shifted from one of only minor irritation to total rage in just a matter of moments.

    “Where I am when I’m not with you is none of your concern, Dasha,” he told her, his voice low and deep.

    With her face turning blue from lack of oxygen, Dasha nodded her head slowly. Obi-Wan released his Force-choke and calmly went back to his packing, none of his rage from seconds before showing at all.

    “I’ll be on Coruscant for a few days at most, then most likely a few extra days for the mission,” he told her as he headed for the door. As he reached it, he turned back to her. “We have things to discuss when I return.”

    Dasha, frightened by her husband’s irrational and hateful actions, merely shook her head. Obi-Wan seemed satisfied with her acknowledgement of his words. He opened the door and swept from the room, his dark Jedi robe swaying behind him.

    *******************************************************************

    Xanatos was waiting by the ship for Obi-Wan and Anakin when the two men arrived. Ten years hadn’t aged Xan very much. His long hair was still ink black, despite him being nearly fifty years old. His sapphire blue eyes still sparkled with mischief and a recklessness that had never abated.

    “What took you both so long?” he asked the pair.

    Anakin smiled. Obi-Wan shrugged. Together they spoke. “Was the wait wearing you down, old man?” they asked playfully.

    Xanatos laughed. They were always teasing him about his age, as if being close to fifty suddenly made him weak and fragile. “Laugh all you like, younglings. One of these days, you both will be my age.”

    Anakin smiled again. “That may be true, Master, but not for a long time.”

    Xanatos playfully pulled on Anakin’s padawan braid as the young man walked by him and up the ramp into the ship.

    “You’re not old, Father,” Obi-Wan told Xanatos, his voice serious.

    Xanatos smiled at his son; the boy that was now a man. “I know that, Ben.”

    *******************************************************************

    “How long until they arrive in the capitol?” the robed figure asked.

    “Three days, Senator,” came the response from the young senatorial aide worker.

    “Good, very good indeed. Please send a request to the Jedi Temple. I would like to have a chat with young Obi-Wan Kenobi,” Senator Palpatine told the young man standing in front of him.

    “Yes Senator, I’ll send the request myself,” he said before turning and hurrying from the room.

    Palpatine simply nodded. Kenobi’s departure from Coruscant ten years earlier had been a surprise he had not foreseen. But now he was back; the boy had become a Jedi, a powerful and skilled Jedi. Now was the time to put his plans into action. Kenobi would be his.
