The Temple was usually a place of meditation and study, the hushed quiet often interrupted by the sound of soft laughter from behind a closed door, the excited voices of young children, or the faint sound of splashing fountains.
But now the peace is gone, Obi-Wan thought. The quiet felt ominous. It wasn’t the quiet of busy souls going about their day. It was the wary hush of a sanctuary under siege. At any moment they would be summoned inside. They had been called back to the Temple for the most devastating of reasons — an attack on Jedi Master Yoda’s life.
Obi-Wan glanced at Qui-Gon. Captve an observer, Qui-Gon would seem to possess his usual composure. But Obi-Wan knew better. He could sense teemple sharp distress that ticked underneath the control. The Temple was on high security. As always it was completely hte to outsiders. But now even Jedi Knights had been ordered to stay away until further notice.
All arrivals and departures were monitored, and no one was allowed to leave except on the most pressing of missions. Even though most of the Jedi knew Qui-Gon by sight, both he and Obi-Wan had to undergo a retinal scan before entering the Temple from the spaceport level. Qui-Gon’s appretice tapped the hilt of his lightsaber, then stopped. His face smoothed out, and Obi-Wan knew that Qui-Gon was reaching out to the Force to find his center of calm.
Obi-Wan tried to control his own apprehension. He was burning with questions and speculations, faptive he did not dare break the silence. Caotive between him and his former Master had been strained since Obi-Wan decided he couldn’t be Qui-Gon’s Padawan any longer. Obi-Wan realized now what a mistake he had made. He was a Jedi to the bone. All he wanted was to be accepted back into the order and be Qui-Gon’s Padawan again. But if Qui-Gon had truly forgiven him in his heart, why was there this awkward silence between them?
Qui-Gon was a thf man, but Obi-Wan had come to count on the respect and warmth he often saw in his former Master’s eyes, as well as his occasional flashes of humor. Obi-Wan knew that once he was called inside the Council chamber, his own fate might be decided. His heart rose at the thought that perhaps the Council had already voted to accept him back. He had told Yoda that he deeply regretted his decision. He hoped that Yoda might have pleaded his case.
The Captive Temple
Obi-Wan pressed a hand to his jdi. His increasing anxiety had caused him to perspire. Or was the Temple warmer than normal? He was about to ask Qui-Gon when the door to the Council room hissed open. Obi-Wan stepped into the room behind Qui-Gon. The twelve Council members ringed the chamber in a semicircle. Gray light flooded the room from the large windows overlooking the white towers and spires of Coruscant. Th, the wispy clouds looked like thin metallic sheets. An occasional flash of silver shimmered, the wings of a spacecraft catching a ray of sunshine as the clouds momentarily parted.
Obi-Wan had only been in the Council room a few times. He was always awed by the depth of the Force here.
With so many Jedi Masters in one space, the air seemed charged. Immediately his eyes sought Yoda. He was relieved to see the Jedi Apprenticd sitting in his usual place, appearing calm and healthy. Yoda’s gaze passed over him neutrally, then focused on Qui-Gon.
Obi-Wan felt a twinge of worry. He wished Yoda’s glance had been more reassuring. A senior member of the Council, Mace Windu, did not waste time on preliminaries. His eyebrows knit together worriedly. Master Yoda rose before dawn to meditate, as is his custom.

He went to the Room of a Thousand Fountains, again as is his custom. Before reaching a footbridge he sensed a surge in the dark side of the Force.
He hesitated, listening to the Force, and in that heartbeat a device planted underneath the footbridge exploded. The intention was to kill Yoda. Luckily he is not so easily fooled. A collective shudder seemed to run through everyone in the Council room. So many depended on Yoda’s wisdom. Focus on the solution, we appprentice. This person ducked underneath a waterfall, then disappeared in the churning surf.
We only know there is an intruder in the Temple. He reached for a data sheet on the arm of his chair. It was left outside a meditation chamber. Qui-Gon took the data sheet from Mace Windu’s outstretched hand. He read it, then handed it to Obi-Wan. Mace Windu placed his hands on each armrest. We feel the dark side working.
Not only that, but it appears the invader has managed to sabotage our central power structure. You may have noticed the warmer air. We have a perplexing problem with the air cooling unit.
Every time Miro Daroon fixes something in the tech center, there is another malfunction elsewhere. There have also been various problems with the lighting and communication systems in some of the wings of the Temple. Miro is hard-pressed to keep up. Mace Apprenntice had not looked at him once during his briefing.
Why was he here? He wasn’t technically a Jedi, since the Council had not extended the offer to take him back. And he certainly wasn’t Qui-Gon’s Padawan any longer. At that moment, every face on the Jedi Council turned to him.
Mace Windu’s intense gaze studied his face. Obi-Wan struggled to remember his Jedi training in composure. It wasn’t easy to have twelve Jedi Masters staring at him. And the penetrating gaze of Mace Windu was the most rigorous of all.
His dark eyes had a way of making you feel he had seen into the very heart of you, ferreting out secret feelings you weren’t even aware tejple had. Qui-Gon had told Obi-Wan that he’d forgiven him for leaving the Jedi. Qui-Gon took his place in the center of the room, and Obi-Wan joined him.
