Obi-Wan shook his head at Atian reluctantly, but decisively. "I can't do that to my Master, Atian," he said slowly.

"Well, ask him if he'll let you go, then," Atian prodded Obi-Wan. "This is going to be a lot of fun."

"All right," Obi-Wan acquiesced, picking up his commlink. "Master Qui-Gon, I've been invited to a party of the Senate Pages this afternoon and evening. May I go?"

Qui-Gon says yes.

Qui-Gon says no.
