One Week Since Last Chapter
It's been exactly one week since I've seen Ahsoka, and it was almost unbearable. I haven't seen her sparkling eyes, her beautiful smile, heard her laugh, or kissed her soft lips in seven days, and I wasn't sure if I ever would again.
I sat on my bed, listening to the thunder rumbling and the lightning striking outside. It had rained almost everyday since Skywalker forbid me to see Ahsoka again, and the weather was corresponding with my mood.
I have cried at least once every day; I was living in fear that I would never see the love of my life again.
I lay back on my bed, closed my eyes, and cried.
I haven't seen Lux in a week, and I felt like I was dying inside. I know I've gone up to eleven months without seeing Lux, but it was different now that he was mine.
I had tried to sneak out and see Lux multiple times in the past few days, but I have been caught by Anakin each time. I've tried climbing out the window, sneaking through the air vents, and even using the door. But nothing worked.
I haven't allowed anybody to visit me, not Padmé, Lilo, or Marina. I was actually started to consider talking to my parents about it.
I sat up and wiped my eyes. I stood up and walked to the door. I opened it and called, "Master Skywalker?"
He appeared around the corner in almost an instant. "Yes, Padawan Tano?"
I sighed. I had been too scared to call him 'Master' or 'Anakin' lately, and ever since he caught Lux and I he's been referring to me as 'Padawan Tano.'
"Might I go for a walk outside? I feel that the fresh air will do me good." I asked with my posture straight and in a clear voice.
He studied my face, trying to find any clues to where I was planning on going. "I suppose so. . ." He finally said reluctantly.
I bowed respectfully. "Thank you, Master Skywalker."
I turned away from him and walked calmly down the hall, but after I turned the corner I broke into a frantic run.
I ran out of the front doors and into the rain, but I stopped once the temple was gone from view.
I took a deep breath and walked into the rain. I was desperate to see Lux, and I was still shocked that Anakin let me go.
As I passed an alleyway, I heard a mechanical collision behind me and an explosion that followed. I flew forward due to the impact and hit the hard ground. I coughed through the smoke filled air. All I heard was ringing in my ears and civilians screaming.
I stood up shakily and shielded my eyes from the smoke. I ran into the burning rubble of what appeared to be two speeders that had collided against each other.
My eyes burned and my lungs were filling with smoke, but I felt obligated to search for any possible survivors. I coughed as I dug through the burning debris.
I removed what looked like handles and found an ash-covered hand. I gasped and continued to dig, but I never would have expected the arm to belong to my mother.
I gasped and worked furiously, I found my father as well. Hot tears were leaking from my eyes. "Mom! Dad!" I shouted desperately.
"Ah. . . Ahsoka?" My mother said weakly.
I held her hand against my face. "Mom, I have to get help-"
"Ahsoka. . ." She repeated.
I turned to her, my face tear stained. "You turned out to be a beautiful young lady, and we're very proud of you. . ."
I looked at my father who smiled weakly at me. "Be strong, Pumpkin. . ."
I hung my head and cried. "I'm so sorry. . ." I managed.
I squeezed my eyes shut. My mother gently placed her wrinkled hand on mine. I looked at her and my father. "We always loved you. . ." She said weakly.
I let the tears fall from my eyes. "I love you, too."
My father drew in a shaky breath and went limp. I widened my eyes in shock. "Daddy? Daddy!" I called desperately. He was gone.
I turned to my mom. "Mom. . ."
"Ahsoka, I love. . ." Then she drew her last breath, and died.
I stood up and ran away from the wreckage. I was bawling at this point, I had just seen my parents die.
I ran to Padmé's building and sprinted into the turbo-lift as I pressed the button for Marina's floor.
After what seemed like forever, the door finally slid open and I ran to Marina's door and knocked frantically, but there was no answer.
I had almost cried myself to sleep when there was a knock at the door. I brought myself to go answer it. It was Padmé.
"Oh, hello Padmé." I greeted with a forced smile, I tried to sound as neutral as possible.
"Lux, come with me." She said as she grabbed my wrist and yanked me out of the apartment.
"Padmé, what's going on?" I asked as she pulled me into the turbo-lift.
She took a deep breath. "I heard about you and Ahsoka, and I'm going to make it right."
I slumped to the floor and cried. My parents had just died and now I couldn't even get a hold of my own sisters.
I dashed back into the turbo lift and pressed the button for Padmé's floor.
The door slid open and I dashed to her door and knocked hurriedly. Luckily, she answered.
"Ahsoka? I was just coming to visit you, why are you crying?" She asked sounding worried.
"I, I was just . . . Walking and, and I . . . an explosion—" Padmé stopped me.
"Ahsoka, please calm down. You're like a daughter to me; I don't want to see you hurt. Please, come in." She gently put an arm around my shoulder and led me inside.
"I was just going for a walk, and then two speeders hit each other. And now my parents are dead." I rushed out the last sentence before I started crying again.
Padmé gasped and took me into her arms and hugged me. "Ahsoka, I'm so sorry!"
"They're gone. . ." I looked down.
Padmé sighed. "Wait here." Then she disappeared into the other room.
I wiped a stray tear from my cheek as a lump formed in my throat. I heard footsteps and I looked up, but it wasn't Padmé. "Lux!" I called, my mood changing from depressed to joyful.
"Ahsoka!" Lux called back.
I ran into his arms, originally intending to hug him. But he leaned down and kissed me. I realized how much I had missed kissing him and I sighed deeply into his mouth, wrapping my arms around his neck. He coiled his arms around my waist and we just stood like that. I could sense Padmé watching us with a smile.
After we broke apart Padmé spoke. "What Anakin's doing is unfair; he can't stop you from being in love."
I looked at Padmé and smiled. "Thank you, Padmé."
Lux turned to her as well. "Yes, thank you, Padmé. I don't know what I would do if I lost Ahsoka."
I blushed and Padmé smiled. "I'll let you two catch up." Then she left.
I turned back to Lux and felt tears in my eyes. "I thought I'd never see you again!" I sobbed.
"Does your master know you're here?" Lux asked, kissing my cheek.
I sighed, "He thinks I'm going for a walk, and I was. . ." I faltered.
Lux lifted my chin gently and gave me a tender kiss. "Ahsoka, what's wrong?"
"It's my parents. . ." I breathed. "They're. . . Dead."
Lux drew me into his arms and hugged me tightly. "Ahsoka, I'm so sorry! I can't believe that happened to you!"
"I lost them. . ." I choked on my own words.
Lux leaned down and looked at me. "The worst things always happen to the best people."
I blushed, but I didn't smile. "Lux, do you love me?" I asked meeting his gaze.
Lux wrapped his arms around me. "I love you more than anything, Ahsoka."
"Will you always love me?" I asked, gently stroking his cheek.
"I'll love you forever, I promise." Lux's lips moved closer to mine.
I sighed deeply. "At least I have you."
Our lips met in a tender and passionate kiss. "I love you." I said softly against his lips.
"I love you, too." He mumbled right back up against my lips.
We both smiled against one another's lips. I moved closer to him, but it wasn't close enough.
We broke apart and I rested my head on his shoulder as he gently stroked my lekku. We were in love, and nothing, not even Anakin, could break us apart.
