I don't own Star Wars or any of the characters.
Once the shuttle landed on Endor, Luke and Leia underwent the task of building a funeral pyre. The twins worked in silence as they built the pyre out of nearby logs and branches. Once the pyre was built, the twins carefully placed their father's body on it and cremated it. Not a word was said between the either Luke or Leia as they stared at the flames consuming what remained of the man who had Darth Vader, Anakin Skywalker, their father and so much more.
When the flames died and all that remained of the body was ash, Luke turned to Leia, a sad smile on his face.
"We better get going, Leia. It will be dark soon and everyone will be worried about us." spoke Luke.
Looking at the pyre one more time, Leia followed her brother back into the forest. By the time the twins reached the Ewoks tree top camp it was already dark. Everyone in the Alliance (and, unknown to the twins at the moment, across the galaxy) was celebrating the death of the Emperor and Vader.
People were dancing around bond fires and singing in offbeat courses. Ewoks did cartwheels and drummed on Stormtrooper helmets. Ahsoka was looking at the fireworks that blazed overhead.C-3PO and R2 danced with the Ewoks. Chewbacca, Han and Lando cheered and drank to the Alliances victory. The twins could not observe their friends for long. Because out of nowhere, Mara snuck up behind the twins and revealed their return to everyone in the premises.
"And where have you two been?" asked Mara.
Luke rubbed the back of his head, unsure of how to answer the red head.
"Well…you see…Leia and I where kind of…" stammered Luke.
Mara cut off the boy's stammering with a kiss. Luke froze before melting into the kiss. As quickly as it had begun, the kiss ended. Mara wondered back into the party, Luke following close at her heels. Leia laughed at the sight of her love struck brother, forgetting about her father's death for a second.
A sudden shift in the Force caught Leia's attention. The girl turned around and saw three Force ghosts. One of the Force ghosts was Obi-Wan and the other was Yoda. It took a moment for Leia to realise the young, blond haired man was her father.
Anakin looked down at himself, one again young and a Jedi. He saw his daughter looking at him and gave her a shy smile. Leia returned the smile to her father.
Han came up to his girlfriend and kissed her on the cheek. Leia hugged Han, glad that he was alive. Han started to drag Leia back into the party. She looked back over her shoulder to see her father one more time, but when she did the three Force ghosts were gone. Vanished. As if they had never been there.
