A/N: This is set just after Siri comes back from that undercover mission during the Jedi Quest special edition or whatever. :p This is dedicated to WhyMustIWrite who had some illness in her family earlier in the year. (It is not a Christmas present, I'm just terribly good at procrastinating, and was buried in homework. :p)
Disclaimer: I don't own Star Wars. If I did, the Ewoks would have been in every movie, and Obi-Wan and Mace would have walked around shirtless the entire time.... Also, Siri would have been in the movies. :)
"How could you? You were one of the most admired Padawans around! You were trusted; I trusted you! I thought we were friends!" Siri Tachi paused in her tirade, breathing heavily. "Anything I haven't covered Obi-Wan? Anything you want to add?"
Obi-Wan Kenobi sat calmly on Siri's couch, silently thanking the Force for ending her rant. "I missed you."
Siri swung back to him. "Yeah, well-! Wait! What?!"
"I missed you, and I thought you could probably use a friend. After all, I sort of know how you feel and all." Obi-Wan remained seated on the couch while she gaped at him like some exotic sea monster. He smiled kindly at her and said, "I brought a holovid for us to watch, if you wanted to." With those words, he rose and moved to the previously discarded bag by the door.
"What are you doing?"
"Well, I also brought chocolate covered muja fruits, because I know it's your favourite, plain chocolate, popcorn, that fizzy soda stuff that we used to have as Padawans, and these little lolly things that Garen recommended, called Skittles.... So... you wanna watch that holovid?"
Siri merely stared at him in stunned silence. "O-Obi-Wan. This is the nicest thing anyone has done for me since I got back. I-I don't know what to say."
Obi-Wan smiled at her kindly before walking over to her and wiping away tears that she was not even aware of. "Siri." He did not continue, was unable to continue. Instead, he pulled her into his arms, and laid her head on his shoulder. They remained like that for several minutes before Siri finally pulled away.
"I'm sorry," she said, punctuating the statement with a sniffle which only caused Obi-Wan to chuckle.
"It's OK. Crying is just another way of releasing our emotions."
Siri laughed and hit him playfully. "Only you, Obi-Wan Kenobi, could possibly think to include Jedi platitudes while cheering someone up."
He grinned. "I try. So, holovid?"
She smiled at him, the first genuine smile seen on her face since her return to the Temple. "Sounds good."
Thus they spent the rest of the afternoon finding comfort in sugary food, children's movies and each other.
