He sat quietly, eyes closed. His legs crossed, he rested his hands on his knees. His breathing even, slow, he listened. The waterfall nearby speeding over the rocks behind it, the leaves brushing against each other, the low hum of conversation; the words shapeless noise that danced with the intricate tapestry of sound.

With a slowly released breath, he settled below the sounds and listened once more.

To his mind.

He didn’t hear the approaching gentle tap-tap-tap. His breathing steady, eyes closed, he didn’t know when the small, green being sat beside him.

poke with the gimer stick.

No response.

Green eyes narrowed. poke

A shake of the other’s head was all the sign he needed. Green eyes closed and he sat, tri-fingered hands in his lap.

“Master,” the man greeted him.

“Clouded your mind is,” the smaller being began; he could see no point in diplomatically sidestepping. “Disturb me it does.

“Quite often.”

He suppressed the groan before it formed and shook his head at himself. He had thought himself under better control than this. Yet the memory of that kiss persisted, stayed where it should not. “I’m sorry, Master. It will not happen again.”

The older Jedi looked around them. “Tranquil this is.” He looked back to the younger Jedi. “Belong in this tranquillity you do not. Disruption, disturbance you bring not the calm you seek.”

The younger Jedi couldn’t stop his frustrated sigh nor the frown that formed.

“Confront the source of this disturbance you must. Stay with me, Anakin will.” He slowly rose to his feet and the younger Jedi smiled. “His training neglected it will not be.” The gimer stick flew into the older Jedi’s hand. Obi-Wan watched as he walked away.

Tap-tap-tap.

Yes, Obi-Wan you must confront the source of disturbance. ;)

"He had thought himself under better control than this." Ah so much in character for Obi-Wan, but alas...he will find out the truth.

Master Yoda is wise. :D

... which, I've just realised, is why I'm looking forward to part II of this particular story!

Ah so much in character for Obi-Wan
Thank you! I never feel quite certain if I capture him in this particular period at all well.

Master Yoda is wise. :D
He is! But I suspect he'll whack himself with his gimer stick if he ever finds out what the disturbance is!

OOh. A fic with Yoda in it. I really love your capturing of Yoda; it surpasses, if possible, your portrayal of Obi-Wan.

I don't know if that's good or bad ...

You captured Yoda really well, I love how he tells the Jedi off without really telling them off?
Does that even make sense? I have no idea, but anyways, I love this :)

Thank you! I've not written Yoda in a few years so I wasn't certain if I'd be able to be convincing as him for this.

Does that even make sense?
Yes it does and again, thank you! I quite enjoyed writing this scene.

Oh Yoda. Awesome, you are.

Seriously, you have him down here. I can see it in my head quite clearly. Also, I love when he pokes people. Never fails to make me smile. I almost cheered at the "Stay with me, Anakin will." part. Not only because it opens up the possible of Obidala fun times, but also because I've always enjoyed the thought of young!Anakin and Yoda training together and such.

Yes, Obi-wan. Time to stop the taciturn act and face this thing head on. :D

That's great to hear! Sometimes, I feel I err on the side of caution with Yoda too much and that affects how he's portrayed, I feel, quite a lot.

Not only because it opens up the possible of Obidala fun times, but also because I've always enjoyed the thought of young!Anakin and Yoda training together and such.
I've been pondering the possibility of a story with Yoda training Anakin, taking over for Obi-Wan for a short period.
