I know, I know. It took a long time to post this, and I'm very sorry! I didn't think I would get slammed with so many projects right after I finished Friends and Family; it's like nature's working against me. But I just had to get this story started before season 5 aired. And just like Friends and Family, the chapters will be named after Evanescence songs. But first, I want to thank:

Go out and listen to it when you're done with the chapter! And if I may quote my big sister, reviews are like cookies and stickers! Can't get enough of them!
The Other Side
I just stood there in complete and utter shock, not knowing what to do in the least. I wanted to yell at them, oh God did I want to yell at them. But I couldn't find the right words. They either seemed to harsh, or not harsh enough.
"Sweetie, are you alright?" My Mother asked.
"Give me one reason why I would be alright?!" I demanded angrily. "You two were terrible parents! I lived with you for only three years and I know you two were awful!"
"Pumpkin please let us explain." My Father begged; a hint of desperation in his voice.
"Since when do you call me Pumpkin? Or Sweetie? As I recall you both treated me like dirt just because I was smaller than everyone else!" I practically yelled.
"Ahsoka, Marina has been in contact with us recently. She informed us that you were alive and that you had become a Jedi. We've given it some thought, and we want to welcome you back into our family."
I looked down. Is this what I wanted? To be accepted by my family? I looked up, having reached a decision. "No. I will never come back to you! You never loved me, you always hated me! I was an unwanted mistake. You only want me back because I'm a Jedi, but I'm still the same little girl you left in the woods fourteen years ago. You never truly were my family, and you never will be my family."
"Ahsoka, please—" I cut off my Mother.
"No! You're too late! I have another family and you're not apart of it! I hate both of you!" I screamed those last words.
My parents stood there with hurt expressions and pain in their eyes.
I screamed in frustration and ran out of the penthouse.
I stomped into the turbo-lift and pressed the button for the rooftop floor.
I stepped out into the frozen night and let the cold air consume me. I stood on the edge of the building on the verge of tears and looked across the sky. I saw Lux's building blending in with the darkness.
I drew in a shaky breath before jumping off of the roof and to the next building over.
The wind was blowing at full force and it stung my eyes. The air around me was growing colder with each passing second and the dark seemed to be closing in around me.
I jumped onto the next building and got a running start before jumping to the next building after that.
When I reached the top of Lux's apartment building, I leaned over the top of the roof and jumped onto his balcony. I wiped a single tear from my cheek, but the rest of them were building up behind my eyes.
I hugged myself and shivered before knocking hurriedly on the glass door.
All I saw was darkness on the other side, so I didn't know if Lux was coming or not.
The door finally slid open and a very tired looking Lux appeared in front of me. "Ahsoka, what the hell? It's midnight!" He snapped.
I couldn't contain it anymore. I shut my eyes as tight as I could and looked down before I started crying.
Lux's expression became worried and he pulled me into a hug that I didn't return, I was too upset. "Ahsoka, I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to yell at you, please forgive me."
I rested my head on his shoulder and cried a little more quietly. "It's not you, it's me."
Lux pulled back and studied me at arms length. "Ahsoka, what's wrong? I hate seeing you cry, I can't stand seeing you hurt."
I looked up at him. "I. . . I just, saw—"
He stopped my by gently placing his pointer finger over my lips. "Let's go inside, it's warmer in there."
I took in a sharp breath before nodding weakly.
Lux sat on the couch and I sat down next to him, but he immediately grabbed me and pulled me onto his lap. I wrapped my small arms around him and he wrapped his strong arms around me. "Ahsoka, what's wrong?" He asked with concern.
I sighed. "On my way back to the temple, Padmé contacted me and told me to go to her house and that she had something I needed to see."
He gently kissed my forehead before I continued. "When I got there, I couldn't find Padmé, but I did find someone." I trailed off.
Lux gently kissed my cheek. "Who was it?" He asked.
I looked at him with my big blue eyes filled with tears. "My parents."
Lux widened his eyes. "What?"
"I saw my parents, and they said they wanted me back." My voice cracked on the last word.
"What did you do?" Lux asked stroking my cheek.
"I said that I would never go back to them, and then I said I hated them." I felt more tears coming.
"Ahsoka, don't feel bad. I probably would have done the same thing." Lux said, smiling sweetly at me.
I looked up at him. "Really?"
"Really." Lux leaned forward and placed a loving kiss on my lips.
When we broke apart, I spoke first. "Can I spend the night here?" I didn't really feel like going to the temple, and I really wanted to be with Lux.
Lux hugged me tightly. "Of course you can."
"Thank you, Lux." I said before kissing him softly.
He picked me up bridal style, usually I would have protested, but I was too tired. He carried me to his bed and set me down. He turned to leave but I stopped him.
"Lux, please sleep here with me." I begged.
He turned around and smiled at me. "Okay, Soka."
I moved over in the bed to make room for him. He laid down next to me and wrapped and arm around me as I snuggled next to him. "I love you." He said softly.
"I love you, too." I said before I drifted off into sleep.
