Did I wake you? -- AIM Log  
Players: Obi-Wan Kenobi and Aayla Secura
Locations: Borrowed cargo ship for Aayla // Coruscant/sleeping quarters for Obi-Wan
Status: Complete



Aayla: *Aayla flopped heavily into the one of the borrowed ship's pilot seats. She had wasted more than a week on Ando, and was more than ready to leave. She had what she needed; now she only had to contact Obi-Wan. She pressed in his quarters on Coruscant, and hoped that he was there.*

Obi-Wan: -He certainly was. In point of fact, he was asleep, but Aayla can't be blamed for the time differences anymore than he can be blamed for sounding a bit groggy, or appearing in holoform with his hair sticking up.- 'Lo? Aayla?

Aayla: *laughs loudly* Why Obi-Wan, I love the new hairstyle you've gone with.

Obi-Wan: Eh? -looks up, but of course one can't see one's own hair by looking up, so he just makes a lazy effort to flatten it with his hands. Yawns- Hello, Aayla.

Aayla: Hello, Obi-Wan. I apologize about waking you, but I have obtained the information we've been looking for. Grievous has taken Bail to Ammuud. It is a Separatist world; so, I will need some help. I spoke to Master Windu about contacting you.

Obi-Wan: Mmhmm... -looks alert now, even if his hair is still sticking up- I'd be more than happy to come along.

Aayla: I appreciate your help on this. Sometimes, it felt like I would never find Bail. As though I was a failure. *sighs* How have you been?

Obi-Wan: Of course you're not. -props his chin on his hand, smiles affectionately- Me? All right, I suppose. I've found a new padawan.

Aayla: Oh? I suppose that I expected you to move on to someone else, eventually. Who did you choose?

Obi-Wan: His name is Nehru. He's thirteen. From Anison. -He doesn't sound overly excited.-

Aayla: He sounds nice enough. I cannot help but notice you do not sound exactly thrilled to have him.

Obi-Wan: -Shrugs and smiles- Oh, I'm pleased with him. He's already proving to be an outstanding apprentice. He's learning his katas and he's perfectly obedient and respectful and all that... ....

Aayla: But? There is no use pretending that you are perfectly happy with Nehru. *raises an eyebrow and glances down at her console briefly to adjust her course*

Obi-Wan: -Doesn't say anything for a moment, looks away as though afraid he might be overheard, then back to Aayla, his hand over his mouth- This is going to sound ridiculous and horrible: He is boring me out of my MIND.

Aayla: *chuckles lightly* But of course he is! Any Padawan after Anakin is going to seem boring. I was under the impression that Anakin made it a personal goal to have you yell at him. He always seemed to enjoy it more than he should have.

Obi-Wan: Ugh! He's just... I wish he would misbehave a bit...

Obi-Wan: I don't even have to tell this child to make his BED. What 13 year old boy makes his bed without being told? I never did. -Sighs.-

Aayla: I did, most of the time, but then I am not a boy. Besides, I wanted to do well for Master Vos. When I moved on to Master Tholme, it was a given. You are simply seaching for the same challenges you found in Anakin, but I do not believe you will. Not only are they different people entirely, Anakin was a special allowance. His personality and independence were already set when you met him. Nehru has been taught differently.

Aayla: Perhaps, he is so in awe of the Great Obi-Wan Kenobi, he does not want to appear defective in any way.

Obi-Wan: -Snorts- Oh my. I've thought of all this as well, of course. I feel horrible about my reaction to him. He really is an impressive young man. Strong in the Force. -the tone of his voice leaves one waiting for the "and all that good stuff"-

Aayla: *decides to add it* And all that good stuff, right? I know that we must move on from past connections, but you could have always waited to take another padawan.

Obi-Wan: Too much badgering. Besides. It's not as bad as all that. It gives me something to occupy myself with and the poor lad was about to be sent off to AgriCorps and... -shrugs-

Aayla: The AgriCorps? I would want to be choosen as an apprentice, rather than be sent off somewhere. And, what?

Obi-Wan: -Shrugs again- He reminded me of me.

Aayla: *nods at the projection* I see. I spoke to Anakin recently.

Obi-Wan: Oh? -Visibly perks-

Aayla: He seemed like he was doing okay. He was working on getting used to being a father, but he is focused on caring for his children. I offerred to send a kiss to you from him via myself, but he warned me away. *grins* I wonder why he would do that.

Obi-Wan: -Eyes widen just a fraction, then he looks away, smiles, and tries to flatten his hair again- I daresay I wouldn't know.

Aayla: Oh, I think that you do. There was some talk me needing to "stay away from his man." Hrmm.

Obi-Wan: -Drops his face into his hands, laughs embarrassedly, then looks at Aayla from between his fingers- 'His man', eh? That's what he said? -is trying not to grin-

Aayla: Yes, he did. He was rather forceful with me. He seems a bit possessive, but I am not surprized. I would be possessive of you, too, if you were mine. *laughs*

Obi-Wan: -Blushes, laughs again- What can I say? I inspire people. -Shakes his head-

Aayla: That is an understatement. You're attractive, and you don't mind being in charge. I can see why those qualities would draw many an eye to you.

Aayla: *squints at the odd look on Obi-Wan's projected face* Are you blushing? The legendary Master Kenobi?

Obi-Wan: -Snorts again- Aayla! -laughs. IS blushing- Of course not.

Aayla: *grins* You are! *looks up through the front viewing window at the passing stars, then back at Obi-Wan* It's the truth. Why did you think I was willing to risk Tholme's lectures?

Obi-Wan: -Chuckles, puts a hand through his hair- This is why I grew my beard.

Aayla: I never said you looked terrible with your beard. I thought it was becoming.

Obi-Wan: Oh dear. No hiding behind the facial hair, then? -Smiles-

Aayla: Not a chance. I am sure that some lovesick person will follow you about either way. Did someone tell you otherwise? *gives a look, because she already knows the answer*

Obi-Wan: It makes me look older.

Aayla: I suppose. *a wave of her hand* Whatever it takes to keep you happy. *smiles* How are Masters Windu and Yoda? I have not spoken to either of them in quite a while.

Obi-Wan: Well. -shrugs- Plotting and scheming as always. -read: boring as always, yes, Yoda still talks funny-

Aayla: As long as the plotting is helpful, I have nothing to say against it. How soon do you think you will be able to travel?

Obi-Wan: How soon do you need me, and where are we meeting?

Aayla: I need you here as quickly as possible. I have wasted enough time, and am going after Grievous now. I could stop at a neighboring system first. It would give you and the clones time to reach me.

Obi-Wan: I'll leave tomorrow night at the latest.

Aayla: Good. That should give me enough time to contact any Jedi who might be in the area and free. Is there any other news from Coruscant I need to know? I have already heard about Palpatine via my contacts and the Holonet.

Obi-Wan: -Would have made one of his cheeky comments, but thinking of Palpatine chases it away, so he just shakes his head- No. It's the same. Politicians arguing.

Aayla: *notes the look that crosses Obi-Wan's face at the mention of Palpatine, considers asking about it, but decides against it - for now* Okay. Contact me when you are headed to the Outer Rim, and I will send you my coordinates.

Obi-Wan: I certainly will. -Another smile. Looks tired again.- And... I'm terribly sorry, but now that I have a long day ahead of me I should probably get back to sleep.

Aayla: *smiles in return* I understand. I have some thinking to do before I turn in myself. Besides, we have to leave something for future conversations. I'll tell you all about being a pretend mistress the next time we speak.

Obi-Wan: -Another warm smile- Sounds wonderful. Good night, Aayla.

Aayla: Good night, Obi-Wan.

Obi-Wan: -Clicks the communicator off.-
