kissing coming quickly and always more passionate than the last.
if he knew the layout of the TARDIS to perfection, Jinn carried her from the
kitchen, and through the long, winding hall ways, to her room. Without
hesitation he opened the door, and carried her over the threshold.

that often found itself over her eyes.
smiled up at him, having to lean her head almost all the way back because he was
so tall. Wordlessly, she untied the sash that tied his shirt and slid her hands
around his smooth, taut waist. Closing her eyes she leaned in and gently kissed
his chest, trailing her lips softly across his skin, wishing she could reach a
bit higher, and chuckling softly at the thought.

"You know... the last time I was... with someone... Obi-Wan had but barely
been born." he mused aloud as he
she shushed, her breath hot and moist upon his chest. "You're with someone
now," she muttered between kisses, her arms holding him tighter against
her. "You're with me now. And I have no intention of ever letting you
go." She looked back up at him and smiled, her eyes misty with the dreamy
fog of utter adoration.

want to leave." and he leaned down and gave her another kiss, his hands
straying for the belt of her kimono.

climbed up on her tall bed and stood on her knees. Now she was more at eye-level
with the massive Jedi. "That's better," she said, grabbing him and
pulling him close, kissing him hard and passionately. She was beginning to lose
her shyness, becoming more comfortable in his presence.

knees." he said, "I know... I'd be proud to kneel before you."
her hands back inside his shirt, Mika gently guided it from his massive
shoulders and let it fall to the floor. "No, precious. You should never
kneel before me. I much prefer eye to eye." She leaned in and began
planting her soft kisses along the broadness of his shoulders, making her way
slowly to his neck. "Love works best on even ground."
I agree." he responded, leaning his head back, a sigh on his lips.
"But.. still... I am a slave to my heart.. which is given to you."
I shall take good care of it," she muttered, trailing her lips against his
skin. She found that certain spot at the base of his neck and began helping
herself to dessert.

it skillfully. With his two strong hands he eased the silken garment from her
soft, yet muscular body, and let it fall to the bed behind her.
began kissing her way from his thick, strong neck up his furry chin to his
waiting lips, even as her hands roamed over the surface of his hard, broad
musculature. She was amazed at how taut and fit he was for his age. Pressing her
own soft nakedness against his chest, she kissed her way to his ear and
whispered, her words soft but full of meaning. "I love you, Qui-Gon, with
all my hearts. I am yours forever..."
I you, Mika, who cannot go home." Jinn responded, "Make your home in
my heart and I'll see to it you never want for love again."
to respond, so overwhelmed she was at the Jedi's total and unconditional love,
Mika fairly threw herself into his arms, holding him as if she would never let
go. If their very molecules had fused together it would not have been close
enough for Mika. "I love you so much," she breathed against his cheek.
"I want to know you as I do myself... all of you..."
simply held her, and kissed her; caressing her and running his love-starved and
callused hands over the front of her beautiful body. One hand stopped where her
naval would have been, and he said. "Forgive me... if I am not worthy...
but I want to show you how much I love you... Mika."
is I who am not worthy of you, precious Qui-Gon. Tonight, and for the rest of
our lives I am wholly yours..." She kissed him slow and tender, pouring
every ounce of love that she felt into her touch.
Jinn lowered Mika onto the bed, and continued to indulge himself in the touch of
her soft flesh. He noticed again the aroma that had so distracted him on Naboo.
It was her. Her own erotic scent.
she lay gasping at his every touch, her fingers entwining themselves in his
long, soft hair, Mika thought of everything that had happened leading up to this
moment. The decisions she had made had been difficult ones, but, lying there,
drinking in the wondrous love of the Master Jedi, she knew she could never had
done differently. A sigh escaped her lips even as a single tear escaped the
corner of her eye and slid silently down her cheek. "No matter what
happens," she said almost prophetically, "know that I love you,
Qui-Gon. Now and forever."

Mika could feel projected from his mind, more powerful and meaningful than any
words of voice.

Jinn sat up in Mika's bed. The mattress was hard, but comfortable. He shook his
head and suddenly the memory of the past few hours flooded into the forefront of
his mind. Quickly he turned his head to one side, and there she was.
Mika, the sweet little Ecturian that the Master Jedi had given all of his
heart... in truth all of his being to, was sound asleep, clutching one of his

felt her soft breathing on his fingers.
love you... and will.. for as long as there's breath in me." he said in a
near whisper. His heart was pounding and he knew, it would surely break if ever
he lost her.
Mika stirred, a soft moaning sigh escaping her sleepy lips. One by one she
opened her eyes, soft jewels shimmering in the darkness. Hugging Qui-Gon's
strong arm to her bare skin, she smiled. "Did I fall asleep?" she
asked, still drowsy but utterly contented.
you did." Jinn responded, smiling. "I was in the process of giving a
massage... afterward." he hesitated on the last word, "You mumbled
something about tortoises... and drifted right off."
laughed as she gave him a quick kiss. "I'm sorry. Perhaps Jedi just have
more energy than timelords," she grinned. She then sat up, drawing the
covers with her, trying to squint in the darkness. "Do that .... Jedi
thingy with the lights would you please, precious?" she yawned, waving her
hand in imitation of his earlier actions.
chuckled a bit and lifted two fingers. The lights came up, a bit... not too
much. "Is that better, darling?"
much better. Now I can see your lovely face," she smiled, gently touching
her fingertips to his cheek, trailing them into his beard.

mirth on the Jedi's face. "I love you." was all he said to explain his

added, teasingly. Leaning forward she kissed him, her hand at the back of his
head, letting her fingers mingle in his hair.
then the lights dimmed very briefly and a subtle hum began to fill the air.
Mika's hand dropped from Qui-Gon's head as she sat back, bolt upright. Her face
had gone deathly white, the fear unmistakable in her eyes.
could see and sense her fear. He sat up straight, a comforting hand on her
shoulder. "What is it ?" he asked, calmly but intently.
she took his huge hand in her tiny ones, she looked at him, unable to speak or
even think. This was it. The moment she had been dreading ever since they had
left Naboo. It was time for her to answer for her actions. This time she had
apparently gone too far.

actions." Her voice was small and distant, her eyes frightened and sad.
"We'd better get dressed. It won't take long to reach Gallifrey."
gave Qui-Gon a quick kiss and hopped from the bed. The Jedi remained seated.
"Answer for your actions ? What ? Saving Batraxis?"
shrugged on her kimono which had lain in the floor where it had fallen earlier
and padded silently across the thick carpet to her wardrobe.
"Probably," she said quietly, almost as if she were hiding something
else. She emerged from the closet changed into a loose fitting pair of black
linen slacks and a dark violet satin blouse. Mika nodded towards the Jedi's own
clothes in a pile on the floor. "Qui-Gon, this is serious." Her eyes
echoed her words.
removed himself from the bed and began to dress quickly; yet he still held an
air of serene calm. "I'm sure all will be well." he offered,
"Besides, I wont let anyone hurt you.
then the hum of the TARDIS engines ceased and a eerie calm settled over the
ship. Quickly Mika finished dressing and threw open her bedroom door. "It's
not me I'm worried about," she muttered.
