Fic: ‘When he wakes.’  
Title: When he wakes.
Fandom: Star Wars
Rating: (M)
Time Period: Between AotC and RotS.
Summary: Inside, Obi-Wan knows it won’t be once.

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

I couldn’t help the ghostly Force presence of Qui-Gon, hence why he’s listed as a character for the story which picks up after Their first kiss.

In order:
He knows it is forbidden
Their first kiss

Cool breezes caressing bared skin wakes him; he can’t sit up properly and he looks to see tangled legs and free brown hair warm against him. Further study of his surroundings reveal his robes and tunic near the door, her gown elsewhere. Lightly brushing his fingertips tells of physical passion.

He groans and falls back onto the pillows behind; she whimpers in her sleep until snuggled beside him again. His hands rest on his face and they muffle the groan escaping his lips.

This once had been the spoken promise but his body speaks else wise, says it won’t be the last time he indulges. He tells himself silently this once and that is all; as he says it, his body betrays him, tells him it won’t be the once and he knows, with the certainty of the Force, it won’t be simply this once. There’ll be more encounters but no further promises.

“Enjoy the moment.”

He starts, sits up, the Senator turning and burying her face in the pillow. His gaze almost wild, he looks around. There is no one except the sigh of the breeze through the window. Barefooted, he pads to the window and closes it; hopefully, no one saw him.


With one last look around the room, he slides back into the bed and closes his eyes; he knows he should leave, knows he should gather his robes and tunic, lightsabre and boots. But the water-soft skin looks inviting – fingers lightly trail along her shoulder – and the bed so comfortable.

As he turns, pulling her closer, a ghostly chuckle echoes in the corner of the room.

Live in the here and now, Obi-Wan. Oh he is!!

I chuckled too when I read the last line.

A truly wonderful story. :)

I wonder if his old Master would approve ...

I chuckled too when I read the last line.
I keep wondering what Qui-Gon was thinking when he chuckled in that last line.

A truly wonderful story. :)
Thank you! It's one that's continued through three stories and I keep wondering if the overall story will continue.

The ghostly chuckle or the pulling closer? ;P

I keep thinking what will happen when they wake up - and whether that ghostly chuckle will still be there! =P

Beautiful. At least he's accepted it's not just 'this once'.

I think he realises, after what happened, he'd like it to happen again.

And again.

And again.
