    "They were going to attack us!"

    "Says who?" Kenobi asks with an arched eyebrow. "Where did you get that bit of information from, where did you get the evidence of it – what world were they going to attack and why? Compared to the Confederation of Independent Systems, the Republic is massive. What could the Separatists possibly gain from attacking it, except enraging the masses of Republic and making damn sure the Republic would be dead set against their pleas for independence?"

    Mace frowns and before he can think of a solid answer, Kenobi shakes his head and speaks again. "Your clone army took nine years to grow," he says, his voice flat and humourless. "I was the one who discovered it, the kaminoans were happy to tell me all about it. Nine years – close to ten, if you count the foetal growth stage. The Separatist cause hadn't even been thought up back when the first patch of clones was inseminated."

    Kenobi steps closer to the force field, almost close enough to press his face against it. "Tell me, Master Windu. Who was the Republic planning to go to war with?"

    Silence follows the question as Mace stares at Kenobi and refuses to give him the satisfaction of his unease and disquiet. Kenobi seems to sense it anyway, nodding his head is grim satisfaction.

    "In six hours you'll get a chance to make one transmission each," he says and turns to leave. "I suggest you think hard on what you're going to say. Also, Master Windu? I might be a traitor," Kenobi says over his shoulder. "But at least I'm not a slaver."

    "What say you, my friend?" Dooku says and straightens his shoulders.

    "I think I am likely here for a reason," Ben muses. Obi-Wan Kenobi – the Separatist. That would change the history, wouldn't it?

    *

    "What the hell?" Anakin mouths. "Why haven't I ever heard about this?"

    "Because I have tried all too hard to be a perfect master for you," Obi-Wan shrugs and looks up at him. "You're about to become a Knight yourself, so it's time for you to understand… that nobody is perfect, and pretending otherwise is not healthy. Now sit down, I have quite a number of stories to tell – and not nearly enough time."

    Anakin hesitates and then sits down. "You're worrying me a little, Master," he admits quietly.

    "For a good reason, I assure you," Obi-Wan smiles and looks away, his eyes distant and sad.

    *

    "I like this Obi-Wan better," he admits quietly. "I wish he'd been like this since the beginning."

    "Better late than never," Padmé says, stroking her fingers up to his short hair again.

    Anakin closes his eyes for a moment. "I feel like I'm about to lose him, though," he says.

    Padmé says nothing, just strokes his hair gently and lets him mourn for all the years he could've had, had the council just let Obi-Wan be human.

    *

    "I love you," Obi-Wan says and embraces him tight enough to hurt.

    *

    "You were designed to be easy target. Your armies are made of droids – no one will cry over the loss of droids. Your casualties are always going to be negligible because you don't have living people on the battlefield – theirs on other hand…" Kenobi's expression darkens. "Their armies are custom order slaves, human slaves. And they've already died by the thousands, haven't they?"

    It would get them what neither Dooku nor Sidious had planned for. Sympathy.

    *

    "This place isn't just designed for long duration – it's designed for expansion. And from what you're saying, it is being expanded constantly," Mace says grimly. "Kenobi is preparing for thousands and thousands of prisoners."

    And they all know where those prisoners will be coming from.

    *

    Asajj eyes him with interest. "All the effort you put in this blockade and you think it's going to be breached, just like that? My dear General, you have a lot of trust in your student's abilities."

    Kenobi says nothing, just walks faster.

    *

    Kenobi sighs and leans his head back a little, looking up at the ceiling. "Call it an apology for sending them off to prison. Freewill for their freedom. Sounds almost like a fair trade, don't you think?"

    *

    "My dear?" Kenobi asks, glancing at her. "Something the matter – did something happen?"

    Yeah, your soul sort of slipped out of your body for a moment there, Asajj thinks ruefully.

    *

    Somehow, Kenobi knows their names. He knows their names.
