Fic: ‘Expect him to leave, they will.’  
Title: Expect him to leave, they will.
Fandom: Star Wars
Rating: (G)
Time Period: Between tPM & AotC: near the beginning of Padmé’s Senatorial stint, immediately after Confront the disturbance you must.
Summary: Two Jedi are in the Council room when Obi-Wan returns.

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

Again, a deleted scene. Again from Of Senators and disturbances. It didn’t fit in the original story but I didn’t want to entirely delete it. So, here it is!

... I was just lazy about posting it!

This scene was the original ending.

The two Jedi sat in the Council room; the older Jedi’s gaze was upon the view of clear sky above the Temple.

“Returned he has,” he spoke quietly into the silence.

The taller Jedi stood, moving to the window. “Should we expect him to leave?”

He closed his eyes; thoughtfulness descended. “Should not expect his departure now,” he answered, opening his eyes.

The taller Jedi turned from the window. “But later?”

“See that I cannot,” the older Jedi replied. “Know that I do not. Confront the disturbance he has. Of that, know I do.”

The other Jedi turned back to the window. “Of what nature this disturbance was, we know not?”

No answer disturbed the still air.

“Then, we should still expect him to leave.”

Oooo I love that they're all suspicious that he will leave! :)

I just noted, re-reading this, that it's a matter of when he'll leave. Not 'if' or 'why'. Just when.

Oooo I love that they're all suspicious that he will leave! :)
At the end of Of Senators and disturbances, it rather seems like he might have a reason to leave!

Yeah I know :) He has the best reasons to leave :D Well, I think it's a pretty damn good one! ♥

I agree; it is a damn good one! I'm wondering when he'll leave, myself, since I know he's not left by the time the end of this particular set of stories rolls around.

I really do love your Mace and Yoda stories; even when part of a larger story.

Thank you! I don't mind writing them in this way, with quiet meetings here and there.

Wise Jedi Masters are wise. :D

The tone of this is very much in keeping with what one would expect from these two Jedi, on of quiet concern and council. :D

And I thank the prequels for the scenes that allowed me to ponder and allow this pair to be written - without those movie scenes, I wouldn't've been able to picture this scene as clearly.
