Summary: Qui-Gon returns home from a solo mission

AN: I originally wrote the sex scene for this in response to Mac's "Something more comfortable" challenge. But the opening was trite and hackneyed. The new opening is marginally better, but you still may want to skip straight to the sex. I dug it out when Emu pointed out that today is the six month anniversary/birthday of Master and Apprentice, and that we should celebrate with a little smut. So, here's my contribution to the party. Who's next?

"You're home."

Obi-Wan did not even attempt to hide the joy in his voice. Qui-Gon turned and opened his arms. Obi-Wan almost threw himself into them, hugging Qui-Gon tightly. "When did you get back?"

Qui-Gon released him. "About twenty minutes ago. I decided to surprise you." He gave Obi-Wan another brief hug. "Now that you're here to watch over dinner, I'd like to take a quick shower and change into something more comfortable."

"Of course, Master."

Qui-Gon left the kitchen and Obi-Wan turned his attention to the stove. He didn't bother to hide his joy at Qui-Gon's return.

Qui-Gon returned from his shower surprisingly quickly. Obi-Wan was setting the table. He looked up to see Qui-Gon wearing a sleeveless white shirt with a low neck and lose pants which hung from his hips. Obi-Wan swallowed hard at the sight. The shirt emphasized his master's broad shoulders, the muscles of his bare arms bulged, and the way the shirt clung like a second skin drew the eyes down the "V" of his torso to…Obi-Wan didn't bother to hide his reaction to his master's attire. However, he managed to keep his voice calm. "Nice. Did you buy it on Ythra?"

Qui-Gon shook his head. "I found it in the back of my closet when I was packing."

"Desperately searching for a clean tunic again?"

Qui-Gon gave him a mournful look. "These things wouldn't happen if I had a padawan who looked after his master properly."

"I do look after you properly. What I don't do is your laundry. You're a grown man, fully capable of washing your own tunics."

"But wouldn't you like the opportunity to wash my underthings?"

"No. Absolutely not."

"You're sure?"

"Yes. I may want to remove your underthings, but I definitely don't want to wash…" Obi-Wan paused as he realized exactly what he had just said. "Them," he finished. Turning, he fled into the kitchen. "Dinner should be almost ready."

Qui-Gon followed him. "Do you think we should have some wine with dinner?"

Obi-Wan shrugged. "Sure."

"Any preferences?"

"You choose." Qui-Gon selected a bottle, quickly opened it with a small application of the force, and handed Obi-Wan a glass. "I must admit that I have never seen anyone open a bottle of wine with the force before."

"The force has many uses, Padawan."

"In your hands it does."

"What can I say? My hands are skilled."

"I have no doubt of that, Master." Obi-Wan answered blithely, as though flirting with his master were an everyday occurrence. Then he thought about it. It was an everyday occurrence. Today it was simply a bit more blatant. When had it happened, he wondered. When had their mutual teasing become flirting? And why hadn't he realized it until now?

"I think dinner is ready."

A few minutes later they were settled at the table. The conversation stayed on safe subjects, covering Obi-Wan's activities and training while Qui-Gon was away, the latest Temple gossip, and what little Qui-Gon was free to tell his apprentice about his mission. Obi-Wan didn't much care what they talked about. He was just happy to hear Qui-Gon's voice.

They lingered over dinner. The wine was nearly gone when they finally rose and began clearing the table. Perhaps it was the wine. Perhaps it was the fact that Qui-Gon was not hiding his own pleasure in being back with Obi-Wan. Perhaps it was the flirting they had indulged in earlier. Obi-Wan didn't know the cause. He did know that warm feelings of attraction were flowing quite freely from him, and that Qui-Gon was returning them.

It was the last which shook him. He had never in his wildest dreams imagined that Qui-Gon might return his feelings. But there was something in his master's eyes, something in his voice, that made Obi-Wan think just maybe he did.

The last dish had just been put away. Qui-Gon was standing very close to him. "Padawan." Only Qui-Gon could make his title a caress.

"Yes, Master?" He met Qui-Gon's gaze.

"What shall we do with the rest of the evening?"

Obi-Wan swallowed nervously. "You should choose. It's your first night home."

Qui-Gon simply looked at him for several long moments. Obi-Wan held his breath, awaiting his master's response. "Very well. Senator Ptoinur gave me a recording of music from her planet. I think you might enjoy it."

Obi-Wan merely nodded, and followed his master from the kitchen to the common room. As Qui-Gon went to turn on the recording, Obi-Wan looked from the couch to the chair, trying to decide where to sit. The chair would put some distance between them. Obi-Wan chose the couch. The first quiet notes of the music reached him just as he sat.

Qui-Gon entered the room, and Obi-Wan watched him as he walked across it. The loose pants seemed to accentuate the muscles underneath, flowing around his master's hip and legs.

The master settled onto the couch, his body angled so that he faced Obi-Wan, one arm stretched along the back of the sofa, reaching toward his apprentice.

Obi-Wan turned so that he was facing his master, painfully aware of how close that hand was to touching him. He forced himself to concentrate on the music. The instrumentation was mostly unfamiliar, the melody deep, resonant and sensuous.

The sounds added to the tension between them. Obi-Wan realized his breathing had become shallow. His eyes were locked on his master's chest, watching it rise and fall. He wanted to rest his hand there, feel the pounding of his master's heart. He knew it had to be pounding, his own was.

Qui-Gon's mind brushed lightly against his. He looked up. What he saw in his master's face made his breath catch in his throat. For a long moment he just looked into that face, studying it, noting every detail. Qui-Gon was waiting. Waiting, he realized, for him. This would go no further unless he acted. He leaned against the back of the couch, resting the side of his head against his master's open hand. Neither of them moved for a long moment. Then Qui-Gon moved his thumb, lightly stroking Obi-Wan's cheek.

How, Obi-Wan wondered, could the slightest touch be so pleasurable? The bass from the music thrummed. Was it a bass, he thought vaguely. Qui-Gon's thumb continued it's slight movement. His hand pushed gently at Obi-Wan's face and the apprentice lifted his head from the couch in response. A single finger moved along the outside of his ear, then across his jawline. Reaching his chin, the hand turned so that the fingers rested beneath his chin while the thumb again came up to stroke, this time passing across his lower lip. Obi-Wan opened his mouth a little in answer, making more of his lip available to his master.

Fingers moved lightly across his face, touching his other cheek, before sliding down his face and onto his neck. He wanted to close his eyes, shut everything out of his awareness except his master's touch and the music which was snaking sinuously around them, further binding them together. But he couldn't shut his eyes, couldn't tear them from his master's face.

His master had a penetrating gaze, intent blue eyes from which he could hide nothing. Tonight those eyes seemed to drink him in. His smallest movement was noted, recorded. He was almost convinced Qui-Gon could see his heart pounding.

Callused fingers moved across his neck, sliding down it. He barely contained a gasp as they passed over the sensitive spot just above his collarbone. Qui-Gon smiled. No, he thought, nothing was escaping his master.

A second melody joined the first. Hearing it, Obi-Wan decided that he was no longer content to remain passive. He inched forward, moving to within reach of his master. He raised his hand, fingertips passing along his master's cheek. Unlike Qui-Gon he chose not to dwell on the face, or neck. He slid his hand quickly down to his master's shoulder, followed the neckline of his master's shirt across his chest and onto the other shoulder. His master's skin was smooth under his fingertips. He brought his hand back to the other shoulder. This time he stroked over the shirt. He moved his hand back again, the path arcing lower, passing barely above his master's nipples. He felt Qui-Gon's sharp inhalation.

Qui-Gon was not much given to passivity either, and his hand moved from Obi-Wan's neck, moving into and under the opening of his tunic. The two melodies were intertwining and separating in a graceful flow of sound, intent and focused. They continued their explorations, still just touching each other with a single hand.

Obi-Wan was torn between wanting more and not wanting the moment to end. This silent seduction was the most erotic thing he had ever experienced. He feared to do anything which might break the mood. He had always imagined that sex between he and his master would be explosive, passionate, something which would overwhelm Qui-Gon's control and objections. Instead, he was finding himself caught in a very controlled seduction. One initiated by Qui-Gon.

Qui-Gon's fingers were tracing a pattern in the flesh just below his collarbone.

Looking directly into Qui-Gon's eyes, he brushed his fingertips over a nipple, eliciting a gasp. Slowly he moved his hand across his master's chest, repeated the action on the other side, his eyes never leaving Qui-Gon's.

Qui-Gon's hand left the skin at the opening of his tunic and moved over soft fabric to his belt. He easily undid it. Shoving the leather out of his way, he loosened Obi-Wan's sash. A large hand insinuated itself into the now open tunic, moving gradually upward.

Obi-Wan pulled his eyes away from Qui-Gon's to look down at that hand. Just the thought of Qui-Gon's hand on his flesh was enough to excite him, the reality was indescribable.

The movements of his own stopped, his hand resting over his master's heart. Obi-Wan could feel it pounding. He inhaled shakily as callused fingers slid over his ribs. He closed his eyes for a moment, found he couldn't keep them that way. He wanted to see Qui-Gon too badly.

The man was beautiful. Strength, power, serenity, the epitome of a Jedi. He was Obi-Wan's ideal, Obi-Wan's hero, Obi-Wan's most secret desire.

At the moment he did not look serene. He looked aroused. Eyes partly dilated and lips slightly parted. His breathing was shallow and his heart was beating rapidly beneath Obi-Wan's hand.

The main melody increased in tempo. Obi-Wan concluded that as much as he liked his master's shirt, it had to go. He moved closer to his master and clasped the shirt in both hands, raising it up over his master's head. Qui-Gon cooperated, necessarily removing his hand from Obi-Wan.

Shirt removed, Obi-Wan indulged in the sight of his Master's naked chest. Hardened brown nipples, a light dusting of hair, wide, strong shoulders, he drank it all in as though seeing it for the first time. In a way he was. After several long moments he looked back up at Qui-Gon's face. Obi-Wan knew he was grinning, foolishly, but he couldn't help it.

Qui-Gon returned the smile, bringing both hands to Obi-Wan's tunic and sliding it off of his shoulders. The gaze turned on him was as hungry as his own had been. Long-fingered hands returned to his chest, running lightly over his skin. He wanted to plead for more. These light touches were torture.

Qui-Gon must have sensed his need because the touches became firmer, less teasing. Fingers moved inexorably toward his nipples. He held his breath in anticipation. One fingertip circled each nipple, thumbs brushed across them. Obi-Wan shuddered. Qui-Gon leaned forward, captured one in his mouth, squeezing the other between thumb and forefinger. Obi-Wan moaned, entangled his hands in Qui-Gon's hair.

Both of Qui-Gon's hands moved to his back, supporting him as he arched into his master's mouth. That mouth moved across him bestowing kisses, nipping lightly, sucking oh so softly. Obi-Wan trembled. He fought the urge to cry out, not wanting to ruin the mood.

He pulled his master's head upward, wanting that mouth on his own. Never before had Obi-Wan thought of a kiss as sweet, but this one was, achingly sweet. Qui-Gon was gently tugging on his lips with his own and Obi-Wan opened his mouth in response. A low groan escaped as Qui-Gon eased his tongue between those open lips. The tempo of the music slowed again as did the movements of his master's lips and tongue and Obi-Wan realized that Qui-Gon's delicate exploration of his mouth was occurring in time to the music.

He wrapped his arms around Qui-Gon's shoulders, pressing his chest against his master's. The second melody surged. Obi-Wan wrapped his tongue around Qui-Gon's.

Qui-Gon's erection was pressed against him. He controlled the urge to press himself against it. He concentrated on deepening their kiss, exploring Qui-Gon's mouth as his had been explored. Obi-Wan was not delicate. He was almost shaking with need and he channeled all of that need into his kiss. His hands clasped the back of Qui-Gon's head, holding it still, as he penetrated deeply into that mouth. His master tasted slightly of the wine they had shared during dinner.

Qui-Gon broke the kiss and moved gracefully off of the couch. He held out a hand and Obi-Wan took it.

Qui-Gon led him to his bed, then moved away. Candlelight blossomed next to the bed. Qui-Gon moved to the wall, adjusted something, and music flowed into the room.

His master returned to him, stood in front of him. He cupped Obi-Wan's face in his large hands, bent to kiss him. The kiss was tender, slow, and Obi-Wan groaned partially in arousal and partially in frustration. The tension building in him was becoming unbearable. He wanted to beg Qui-Gon to end it. He wanted the sweet torment to continue.

Qui-Gon released him. They were not touching at all. Qui-Gon's hands moved to his waist, quickly undid the fastenings of his trousers. Then he knelt, unfastening Obi-Wan's boots. Obi-Wan helped him to remove the boots, then held his breath as Qui-Gon tugged on his pants. They slid easily over his hips. He stepped gracefully from them as they reached the floor.

Qui-Gon looked up at him meeting his eyes. His hands moved up the length of Obi-Wan's legs, stopping to take hold of his hips. His master's piercing gaze had been softened by desire. Obi-Wan reached out and gently touched his face, felt Qui-Gon lean into his touch.

The music soared. Qui-Gon licked the end of his cock. Obi-Wan shuddered at the slight contact. Qui-Gon took a small amount of him into his mouth and sucked, his tongue swirling around the tip. Obi-Wan's hands moved to the back of his master's head. He needed the support.

Suddenly the warm softness left him. Qui-Gon stood. It took Obi-Wan a moment to register the change. Then he reached for the tie on his masters trousers, undid it with a swift tug. The pants dropped to the ground and a barefoot Qui-Gon stepped out of them easily.

Obi-Wan's eyes trailed down his master's body, moving slowly over him. He knew his appreciation showed on his face as he lifted his eyes to Qui-Gon's.

Qui-Gon placed his hands on Obi-Wan's shoulders, pressing him back onto the bed. Obi-Wan went willingly, squirming backward so his whole length was stretched across the bed. Qui-Gon followed, holding himself over his apprentice.

Obi-Wan suddenly realized that his master's hair was still tied back. He reached up and removed the tie with more deftness than he believed himself capable of at that moment. He ran his fingers through the newly freed hair. It cascaded downward, a silken wall around their faces.

He didn't know who initiated the kiss. Didn't care. He wrapped his arms around Qui-Gon, pulling him downward, arching up into his master. Qui-Gon relented, allowing his full weight to press into Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan moaned at the contact.

Qui-Gon's mouth left his lips, moving to his neck. Obi-Wan tilted his head, allowing his lover full access.

He was nearing the breaking point. He nearly sobbed with pleasure, with need. Please, he sent the plea along their link.

Qui-Gon stopped. Looked into his face. What do you want, love?

You. Inside me.

Qui-Gon hesitated.

"Please," Obi-Wan whispered, "I want you. I can't wait any longer."

Qui-Gon kissed him briefly before sitting up and reaching for the stand next to the bed. He opened a drawer, withdrawing a small tube. He settled himself between Obi-Wan's legs. Coating a finger with the contents of the tube, he ran the finger gently around the entrance to Obi-Wan's body.

Obi-Wan drew his legs up, offering greater access. Qui-Gon pushed his finger forward. Obi-Wan groaned. He turned the finger, gently lubricating his lover. He withdrew his finger, repeated the process. Obi-Wan's hands were convulsively clutching the coverings of his master's bed. Again the finger was withdrawn, quickly replaced by two.

The main melody was rising, increasing in intensity. Counterpoint followed closely behind. The two melodies began to blend together.

"Qui-Gon, please." The words were barely coherent.

Obi-Wan retained enough awareness to note that his master's hands shook slightly as he coated himself with the contents of the tube. Then all thought ceased as Qui-Gon pushed gently into him.

It stung. It was glorious. He was stretched, forced open, penetrated. By Qui-Gon.

His master was leaning forward, a hand on either side of Obi-Wan. He looked amazingly beautiful. Pleasure and concentration written across his face, muscles bulging with the effort to control himself. Love surged through Obi-Wan and he reached up to touch his master.

Qui-Gon turned his head, pressed his lips against Obi-Wan's palm. Then he began to move, withdrawing slightly, pushing slowly forward.

Melody and counterpoint merged, forming a new movement that was compromised partly of each, yet wholly new. Obi-Wan didn't notice. All of his being was focused on the flesh moving with in him. Qui-Gon's flesh. Qui-Gon.

Obi-Wan groaned, tried to open himself further. He felt he would never get that flesh deeply enough into him. Never get Qui-Gon deeply enough into him. Then Qui-Gon was reaching across their bond. Obi-Wan cried out at the contact. His master's presence filled his mind and he came, calling out Qui-Gon's name over and over again.

He was aware of Qui-Gon's voice joining his own. Of Qui-Gon thrusting deeply inside him, Qui-Gon coming, Qui-Gon filling him.

He wrapped his arms around Qui-Gon's shoulders, pulling the larger man's trembling form down on top of him. They clung to each other. Some small part of Obi-Wan's mind noted that the music had stopped. Not that he cared. The only thing he cared about at that moment was the man in his arms.

Eventually, Qui-Gon moved to lie next to him. Obi-Wan moved so that he could look at his master, folding his arms across his master's chest and resting his chin on them. Qui-Gon was toying with the end of his braid.

"Slip into something a little more comfortable." Obi-Wan shook his head. "I can't believe you actually used that line."

Qui-Gon chuckled. "Why not? Sometimes the old ones are the best." He grinned. "Besides it worked."

"Ummm." Obi-Wan leaned forward for a quick kiss. "I also can't believe you actually set out to seduce your Padawan."

"My very willing Padawan."

Obi-Wan flushed. "Yes, well…" He tried to think of a response. "Okay, I was very willing."

"Eager, even."

"Okay, eager."

"In fact, I'm not even certain I was the seducer."

"You were the seducer." Obi-Wan's eyes twinkled. "But you won't be next time."

"Next time," Qui-Gon repeated. "I look forward to it. When will it be, do you think?"

Obi-Wan moved to straddle his master. "Now." Any response Qui-Gon may have made was smothered by Obi-Wan's mouth on his.

***

Later that night Qui-Gon pulled his apprentice close, kissed the top of his head. "Padawan."

"Yes, Master." Obi-Wan looked up at him, adoration showing in his eyes.

"I don't think it counts as a seduction if the seduced party is already sprawled naked on the bed."

Obi-Wan sighed. "No, I suppose not." He grinned. "Guess that means I'll have to try again when you've got your clothes on. Maybe I should make you dinner and then slip into something more comfortable." He shook his head. "Nah, it's been done."

Many times, he thought to himself.

Qui-Gon laughed. "There is something to be said for the tried and true, Padawan."
