Obi-wan Kenobi had been in love in his life in that serious, impetuous way that we believe love can be when it's perfect ... and perfectly doomed. Siri Tachi was the padawan of Adi Gallia, and she annoyed Obi-wan because she was pushy, bossy, and always right. And he loved her, even contemplated leaving the Jedi Order a second time ... but they had agreed to bury their feelings and to serve the Republic.
In exile on Tatooine, Obi-wan did not dream; dreams pass in time, and for him, they pointed to things that were painful and terrible. But as his exile was coming to an end, Siri came to him in a dream ... but in a form she had never had in life, in a manner Obi-wan had never imagined her. Is it the yearning of a man knowing that his time was running out? Or a message from one who had loved him painfully, intensely was it a warning?
