Here is another short Star Wars fanfic that I wrote about 13 or 14 years ago. I had done a whole series of them and it's fun to revisit them, especially this one. I'm looking forward to finding out what Master Kenobi was up to all those years on Tatooine watching over young Luke.

I Am Obi-Wan Kenobi I am Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jedi Master, member of the Jedi Council, and General of the Clone Wars.

I am the Padawan of Jedi Knight Qui-Gon Jinn, my Master in youth, my Master in maturity.

I am alone, the Order I once served so loyally destroyed, decimated by the man I called friend, student…brother.

I gaze across the plains of the desert world Tatooine, watching as the planet's twin suns paint the sky in shades of pink and orange, and purple.

There is still goodness in the galaxy.

There is still hope.

And it lies with the small boy I now watch over as an eccentric uncle, the crazy old man who lives in the Jundland Wastes.

I know there are others of my kind strung across the galaxy, the eldest and wisest hidden away until it is his time to train the future.

To train the boy.

I can only wonder what I could've done to have eased the conflict within my apprentice.

To have saved him the agony he suffered over the visions of death.

To have spared him the existence he now is in.

I could've done more, but I let go of the attachment that was so forbidden in the Order and blinded me for so long.

I am better for it now. Stronger. More prepared for the trials that await.

I will wait and watch and be there when the time is right.

And take my place in the Force when things are set in motion and balance is restored.

 

Original fanfiction story by Beth A. Freely, circa 2009ish.
