    Obi-Wan sniffed the air and said, "We smell different."

    "They're preparing us for the next step," Anakin said. "If we're going to guide the seed-partners, we have to smell right." Obi-Wan was not happy at having his internal chemistry altered, but Anakin's reaction concerned him more. "I wish there were less mystery here," he said.

    "I wonder if it's lonely," Anakin said.

    "It can stand to be apart from us for a few minutes," Obi-Wan said.
