CHAPTER 1 Explanation
I thought about trying to write a what if story. I had this idea in my head for a while now. It was my best friend who made me post it here. All of my author's notes at the bottom are important and need to be read if you can, because I explain the chapter, a little.
Enjoy, read and review!
Shmi watched as Anakin stared at the suns of Tatooine. He was just a 9-year old boy, just a baby in Shmi's eyes really but even tho it seemed like yesterday when this father left them here, on this dusty planet, Anakin was much more mature then most of his friends. He wanted to be a professional pod racer and free his mother and himself from slavery. He wanted to free all the slaves in the galaxy. For Shmi his dreams seemed like a wish that will hardly come true and most of it wouldn't.
And then one day he came home with a big box full of used parts. When Shmi asked him where he got them and what were they for Anakin told her how he met a stranger in the city that bought an old shop down on the west side of the town and some old and used parts for a pod. When he heard that the stranger was looking for a mechanic that didn't cost him his life savings Anakin went right to him and said that he could repair the parts. Of course the stranger laughed at first but when he saw that Anakin was serious he made a deal.
"What kind of a deal?"
"He said that if I get this parts ready till Friday he'll pay me for the rest and maybe I'll be the first one to try the pod out. When it's ready of course." And with that Anakin left his mother on the couch while he started repairing the parts.
It has been two days since it happened and Anakin said that the parts will be ready in no time. Shmi brought him his favorite sandwich but he's so busy that he hadn't even touched it. Now after four hours of hard work and no food he finally stopped.
"Mom?" She awoke from her trans to look at her son.
"I was wondering if you want to meet Max tomorrow? He's really nice and you two would get along pretty well." Anakin said as he chewed on his favorite sandwich.
"Ani. What are you trying to pull?"
"Nothing mother, I'm just trying to aquatint you with him. I mean, you need to know who I work with and if he isn't some sleemo."
"Well, I have to go to the town tomorrow so maybe I'll come visit you. Now go to bed. The suns have already gone to sleep and you're the only one still up. If you don't hurry up they will come around and never again go to sleep because boys like you disobeyed them." Shmi said as she tucked Anakin in and kissed his forehead.
"Mom. You don't have to repeat this anymore. I'm not a baby, I'm nine!"
"You may be nine but you are still my baby boy."
"Ok, ok. Good night Ani." She quickly said and left her little boy to rest. All this repairing and talking about pod racing made her forgot that they're still slaves and they still have a master.
IN THE JEDI TEMPLE:
"Master Yoda I need to speak to you." Master Plo Koon said as the council chambers were finally empty after the discussion about the progress that Obi-Wan and Qui Gon Jinn made. (A/N: they haven't actually made any progress. They got to the surface of Naboo, but now they're stuck there with no communications. Remember the movie!)
"Master Plo Koon, seem troubled you do." Yoda looked up into Plo Koon's eyes even while Plo Koon was kneeling in front of him.
"Yes, it's about the girl..." he said as he stroked his mask.
"Unneeded trouble it is. Become a strong Jedi, she will. Rest, both you should. Her training start soon, it shall."
"Yes master, but there is something in her future that I can't make out what it is but it disturbs me."
"Sense something dark, do you?"
"No. It doesn't feel like it, but as I've said before I can't make it out. All I know is that it is her destiny to be a Jedi. Maybe... Maybe she is the chosen one."
"Unsure of that, we all are. Know one thing, we do. Strong with the force, the girl is. Hmmmm. Meditate on this, I shall." And with that the wisest and oldest Jedi Plo Koon has known slowly exited the room. He too slowly made his way to his quarters where a 3-year old girl was sleeping. Probably dreaming about something that makes her happy. Today was one of her toughest and saddest days ever. She had to let go of her family and leave everything she knows and owns behind so she can start a new life as a Jedi. It was a tough day for Plo to...
As he entered the room he saw the girl mumble in her sleep but that soon turned in to loud yet not understandable words. There's only one word he understood before the girl started turning violently and repeating the one word.
Plo Koon sat on the edge of the bed and waited for the girl to wake up. A few moments later she jumped in to an upright position screaming: "Noo!"
Her eyes showed that she was confused but afraid. The way she looked around the room let Plo Koon know that she had a nightmare. The 3-year old looked at him and quietly laid down. Plo Koon put his hand on her shoulder, motioning her to talk.
"I had a bad dream master. But I don't know what it is."
"No worries, Ahsoka. You will soon learn to see your nightmares or bad dreams, as you call them, more clearly and you will soon understand the force like I do." If Ahsoka could see behind the mask she would see a smile shown on the master's face.
Anakin woke up sweaty all over. He heard a girl call his name in his dreams.
He was on Tatooine with his mom working in Watto's shop when suddenly everything went black and cold. It felt like Hoth without a spark of light. The darkness took him and for a minute he thought he was dead, that was before a man appeared before him. He was clocked but you could feel the dark side around him. The man laughed so evil it sent Anakin shivers up his spine. He wasn't able to move or talk, but he felt a hand touch his right one. As he looked over his shoulder he suddenly became an adult. He looked 22 or 23 years old. He looked at his hand and traced the other person's skin up to its shoulder and up to her neck, soon her full lips and finally his eyes stopped as he looked in to her beautiful blue ones. She was beautiful. She didn't have the cold aura or the dark side around her. Her presence was ... Warming and relaxing. She stepped closer to him. Their bodies were pressed against each other and it looked like they were about to feel each other thru their lips when she vanished. Anakin made two turns with his whole body, trying to find her or figure out where she went.
Soon he found her.
She was dangling in the air with her hands struggling to free herself from the invisible hand that was choking her. It soon stopped and she fell towards the ground. Anakin's legs started to move, not obeying him as his hands caught her. His lips started to move even tho he wanted to keep them shut. His whole body was disobeying him, like it wasn't even his.
"Are you alright?" His voice was cracking but she nodded in response. Just as he was about to say something else they were pulled away from each other and the girl kept screaming his name until she vanished.
That's when he woke up. Her name was yet to be discovered but the only question that kept floating in Anakin's mind was: Who is she?
He did not dwell on it too much, because he had to get up early in the morning.
IN THE JEDI TEMPLE:
She quietly sat on her bed, her whole body facing the Jedi Master. They haven't spoken since it happened. It looked like Plo Koon was trying to figure out what Anakin meant.
"Master Plo?" the girl asked in a quiet whisper.
"I don't know. It must be a name. A boy's name. Could you tell me about your nightmare? Maybe we'll both understand it better." he got a nod from the girl and he made his way to sit next to her while she explains.
"Everything was dark and a boy, a human boy appeared with a clocked man. He was really scary and had a dark aura around him. I started moving towards him. My body didn't belong to me..."
"Wait. Who was scary? The boy or the man?"
"The man. The boy looked like nine. My body didn't obey me and my hand touched the boys right one. After he looked at me we both turned older. I looked like a teenager and he looked like he was 22. He looked at me and we stepped closer. Then... Then..."
"What happened next?" he didn't get a response. The girl started crying and she threw herself into his embrace.
"I lost my oxygen flow and in the next second I was dangling in the air. I struggled to get the invisible hand of my neck. I kept saying Anakin over and over again. After the man disappeared I regained my oxygen but I started falling towards the ground. The boy-Anakin- caught me and he asked me if I was alright. He seemed to care about me because his voice was cracking. I nodded. I saw him open his mouth but before he could say anything else we were pulled away from each other. I kept screaming his name."
"You get some rest and I'll go talk to master Yoda about this. It seemed that this boy is somehow connected to you. Sometimes in our nightmares we see the future. That is why I must talk to master Yoda."
He quickly left the room hoping that the elder Jedi was still awake.
The girl quietly laid down, surprised by the master Jedi's actions. It didn't bother her that much; she had a youngling class the next day.
Soooo? What do you think?
This is the first chapter and it takes place at the same time Qui Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan 'land' on Naboo only with a little twist. In the movie we never saw or heard about a stranger. Anyone got any idea who he is? I will revile him in the next chapter because my story starts when the girl and Anakin are all grown up. Speaking of the girl... Who is she?
May the force be with you while you...R&R!
