"Mistake you are making," Jedi Master Yoda harrumphed. He sat in his favorite meditation room in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. Master Qui-Gon Jinn sat beside the small Master, his legs crossed as he sat on the cool floor.

"I don't believe I am. I think taking some time away from the Jedi Order will help me to determine if this is really what I want."

"Think I do, running away you are. Xanatos' failure your fault it was not. Blame yourself you should not," Yoda told him pointing a gnarled finger at the taller man next to him.

"I'm not running away Master Yoda. I need to take a few years away from the order. I will come back in a year or two perhaps less. I have no doubt that I will return."

"Terrible consequences this decision will have. Terrible consequences," Yoda shook his head and closed his large eyes. Qui-Gon knew that the smaller and wiser Master was either deep in thought or in the midst of a vision.

"I'm willing to accept the consequences that I will have to face," Qui-Gon assured him.

Yoda's eyes opened wide and the older Jedi looked up into Qui-Gon's sapphire colored eyes. "The consequences to Obi-Wan Kenobi do you accept?"

"What consequences? And who is Obi-Wan Kenobi?" Qui-Gon asked.

"Eleven year old initiate Kenobi is. Your Padawan he was meant to be."

"Was?" Qui-Gon questioned. He could not imagine taking another Padawan. After his failure with Xanatos, he promised himself that he would never take another Padawan.

"Grave consequences to Initiate Kenobi if change your mind you do not," Yoda said with a thump of his walking stick for emphasis.

"I'm sure that the boy will find a Master better suited to train him than me. I may return before someone else chooses him. Although I must admit that I don't know if I want to take another Padawan."

"Humph, mistake you are making; know this I do," Yoda informed him sternly.

"I'm sorry but I don't believe that I'm making a mistake. This is something that I must do." Qui-Gon stood up and walked toward the door.

"May the Force be with you," Yoda sighed closing his eyes once more.

Qui-Gon nodded, "And with you Master Yoda." He left the meditation room trying to convince himself that Yoda was just using Obi-Wan as an excuse to persuade him to stay in the Order.

To be continued.
