Sometimes, Chase gets tired of staying at the Nexus. It's nice, sure, but the opulence and the finery make him think of being at home in Melbourne with his father on the convention circuit, staying in fancy places while his Dad talked and talked and ignored his wife and son. The only downside to that is that Chase doesn't get to see Ben, but it's not his first long-distance relationship (if they were calling it a relationship, at this point).

It is his first trans-dimensional relationship, though.

Being home comes with good things and bad. It comes with his familiar life. It also comes with House. Today's been one of those days that House is driving him crazy and so Chase has picked up a few more clinic hours than usual, glancing at the next chart as he knocks on the patient's door. "Hi there," he says distractedly, staring down at the symptoms instead of the name. "My name's Dr. Chase, I'll be your consulting physician today."

"Well, doctor, I seem to be having some sort of problem with hallucinations," Obi-Wan said smoothly, wondering if Chase would even notice who he had in his exam room.

"I seem to think I'm a clairvoyant and a telekinetic."

"Hardly. I simply wanted to see where you disappeared off to and I realized you were coming here. I never listen to your mind, Rob," Obi-Wan explained. "So I have to rely upon paying attention to realize where you go on a regular basis."

"You're not planning on coming back permanently, are you?" This was something that hadn't ever occurred to Obi-Wan, the idea that Chase might leave the Nexus entirely and just go back to his old life. It was something that he wouldn't blame him for - Obi-Wan had responsibilities too. Still, it was something he had not thought about at length before and now he had to consider it.

"I'm not certain what career I could engage in here, you know?"

"Long-distance commute, good benefits," Obi-Wan quipped back. "See? I've picked up on the vernacular while in your waiting room. I'll admit, it's not terribly subtle but it serves for communication."

Jedi communication has always been more formal in nature and Obi-Wan had often been dispatched on diplomatic missions; blending is something he's been taught to do and something he does fairly well in spite of his upbringing.

"Hallucinations and delusions of grandeur," Obi-Wan teased. "Because I seem to think I have a shot with a beautiful man. How much longer do you have today? I'm certain I can find myself something to occupy the time until you can gracefully extricate yourself from the clinic."

Obi-Wan hardly wanted to pull Chase away from the work he clearly loved. He could be patient, if need be.

"Remind me to introduce you to the delicacies of Gungan cuisine while we're at it," Obi-Wan said, grinning playfully at him. "I am always up for an interesting cultural adventure, even if my stomach may regret it later. Luckily, I have midichlorians on my side. There's no help for you."

"Run the blood test, if you like," Obi-Wan said. "Midichlorians are what allow me to access the Force and give me my Jedi abilities. The concentration of midichlorians in my blood is directly proportional to my skill."

"High enough. Not off the charts," Obi-Wan admitted. "Though I tested in what used to be the top percentile before my apprentice sort of destroyed all the records. Then again, Anakin is not something I wish to be compared to at the moment."

Or ever, really, because Obi-Wan liked to think that he had achieved and excelled as a Jedi and Anakin would always be wasted potential.

"Hardly, doctor," Obi-Wan said, a smile curving his lips and warming his voice. "Though you might want to do a thorough investigation to ensure there's no problems. A full work-up, as it were. I wouldn't want to miss something that could easily be found during physical exam."

There's a strange sort of thrill involved with doing this here in semi-public and Obi-Wan wondered if Chase felt the same way about it.

Obi-Wan stripped slowly, trying to make this look a lot less methodical than it should be for a medical exam. They both know nothing resembling an actual exam is about to take place here.

"So, doctor, what do you think might be wrong, hmm?"

"Oh, yes, anything you think might help." It was a silly game that they were playing but Obi-Wan supposed he was entitled to a bit of silliness at this juncture in his life. It was something carefree and he hadn't had a lot of that in his life.

"I put myself in your hands, doctor."

"I think there's a time and a place for a little ridiculous fun," Obi-Wan said, sliding his arms around Chase and pulling him close for another kiss. He could be content to kiss him all day long and still not get enough of it; luckily Chase seemed to be of the same mind.

"We both work very hard. It's time to have a little fun with life."

"Probably, but I could make them forget they even saw us," Obi-Wan said wryly. "The use of the Force is not lost to me even on your remote planet. It is a simple thing to make someone forget they saw something mundane and ordinary. There is nothing strange about you kissing me so why would they even make a note of it? It isn't much of a trick to pull off."
