Fic: ‘In the midst of the woods.’  
Title: In the midst of the woods.
Fandom: Star Wars
Rating: (PG)
Time Period: Between tPM & AotC: during Padmé’s reign (the second time elected).
Summary: After a long few hours of pursuit, feelings come to the fore.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q. or check this post for the definition).

A poll for Valentine’s Day was recently run, the prompt decided upon courtesy of the poll and a story, as per the usual custom, was written.

This is actually a snippet from a longer story I wrote over the past few hours and somehow, I end up posting this later than I’d expected. I’m not happy with the rest of the story so it wasn’t posted.

The events of the entire story occur over the course of an entire night; this was simply part of that night.

Blaster fire was suddenly heard in the distance. “Uhree! Uhree!” The urgency couldn’t be mistaken. Padmé grabbed a dangling vine and started climbing up, Obi-Wan close behind. Their small ally ran in the direction of the blaster fire. Padmé helped Obi-Wan onto the platform. There was a small hut and Padmé pushed the woven mat aside and held it open for Obi-Wan who pulled her in with him. They both tumbled into the single room and she landed atop him. His hands held her waist and her lips were close to his.

Obi-Wan shifted very slightly. Her breath caught. “Why are you glad Anakin didn’t come?” He whispered into her breath.

“I …” She lowered her lips to his suddenly and cupped his face between her hands. Her body pressed against his, the lightsabre poking into her. Her hair fell more freely from its restraining combs and bands and his arms slipped around her. They rolled over, still kissing, until, finally, their faces drew apart. “We can’t.” A breathless murmur. “We. Can’t.”

“We definitely cannot,” he agreed, just as breathy.

Her face rose to meet his and she tore his tunic open. With luck, their guide wouldn’t return too soon.

WOOHOO!

That's was awesome..

No way is that guide coming back to soon.. maybe he'll get lost. While Obi-Wan and Padme get lost in the moment.

You build this ficlet up and then I thought, nothing was going to happen.. but you surprised me. :D

I don't think there's any danger of that occurring any time soon ...

I surprised myself as well! When writing the overall story, of which this is a smaller part, I didn't think such a scene would happen and then it did - quite a surprise!

I loved this :) Short but beautiful!
Thank you – I’m very pleased it was that great for you!

I love this pairing so much and you write some of the best Obidala fics I've read.
Oh gosh, thank you very much for letting me know!

Also, random, but I read your FAQ and the quote you chose your username from is awesome, I love the whole way that book is written, but especially love those quotes.
I agree – that whole book is very much of the awesome! I was really taken by the quote where the username came from – the simple beauty of that quote, amongst others, from that book.
