Last chapter. Thanks for reading! Oh, and this one gets a little weird.

Luke blinked. Then he did it a few times more. The extremely strange thing he had just discovered didn't change.


"Um," the ghostly form Anakin Solo said as he gave up hiding and stood, "Hi, Uncle Luke…"

The only thing Luke could think to respond to that with was, "Anakin…why are you hiding behind a packing crate?"

"Because," Anakin said with a small pause and a sigh of defeat, "…Well, Grandfather took the space in the corner!"

"Tattletale," came a second voice.

Luke was very hard pressed to keep his mouth from hanging open as another ghostly head peeped from around a large packing case that blocked a corner of the room from view. While he'd only seen this face once or twice, all times briefly, it was one he would never be able to forget.

Seeing Luke was able to handle his sudden shock, Anakin Skywalker stepped out from hiding and moved closer, moving somewhat shyly.

"…Do I get to hear why you two are here?" Luke asked, once he felt sure of his voice again.

"A visit," Anakin Solo replied, "I wanted Grandfather to see Ben. He was already awake when we came in, we probably got you and Aunt Mara an extra hour of sleep."

"Which was most appreciated," came Mara's voice from the doorway.

She walked right in, gave Anakin Skywalker a suspicious look, and proceeded to inspect Anakin Solo from head to toe.

"I think you've grown a little," she said at length, "Or are you floating now?"

"Floating," Anakin Solo said sheepishly.

"I see," Mara said, turning to the other glowing presence, "So who are you?"

"I," Anakin Skywalker said a voice that seemed to be purposely imitating Darth Vader's, "Am your Father-in-law, Jade."

"Vader," she replied with narrowed eyes.

"Aunt Mara, don't be mad," Anakin Solo said, seemingly only remembering now that his aunt-in-law and his grandfather used to both work for the Empire and didn't like each other too much to boot, "It was my idea that we'd come and visit…"

Luke was beginning to feel a little frightened by the glare match going on between his wife and his dead father when someone tapped him on the shoulder.

It was a middle-aged man, someone he didn't recognize at all, dressed in Jedi robes and only having an extremely faint sense of transparency to him, one that Luke didn't spot right away.

"You might want to break them up before they really start fighting," the man advised, relieving Luke's arms of Ben's weight and holding the infant like he was made of glass.

Not questioning this newest turn of events, Luke stood in between Mara and his Father.

"Please, can both of you calm down," he asked - pleaded, nearly - "This really isn't the time for old grudge matches."

"I'm not the one with the grudge," Anakin Skywalker replied innocently, "I'm just looking for wrinkles."


When Anakin - both of them - had finished laughing and Mara had finally finished fuming, all of them turned to the stranger that had just calmly set Ben back into his crib.

"Honestly, I for one could never grow tired of your arguments, Ani," the man said with a wiry grin.

"Qui-Gon? Qui-Gon Jinn?" Anakin Skywalker looked absolutely dumbfounded.

"Wait a second, you're dead too, aren't you," Anakin Solo said.

"Yep," said Qui-Gon.

"And you were holding my firstborn son how," Mara said, "And are any more dead Jedi going to be coming tonight?"

"Plenty of practice and I don't really think so," Qui-Gon answered calmly, "I was actually sent here to find the wayward Anakins."

"Yoda wants to see us, doesn't he," Anakin Skywalker said, "Well, I'm not going. That little troll is an evil taskmaster, evil I say!"

"Heard that I did," Yoda said as he suddenly appeared, perched on the edge of the crib, "And a lecture you both are missing. Came to collect you, Qui-Gon did. Visiting relatives you should not be."

Yoda looked down and spotted Ben's curious gaze back up at him. No one present had ever seen Yoda's eyes bug out before, and the little Jedi Master looked ready to pop.

"Children! More children! Three grandchildren for you were not enough?!"

"Why do you always assume that I have something to do with my grandchildren existing, Yoda?" Anakin Skywalker asked in astonishment.

"Enough of this buffoonery! My lecture you are missing! Even Masters must come, when their Padawans are there to listen!"

"Padawan?" Luke asked.

"He means me," Anakin Solo explained, "They decided Grandfather should finish my training. Even though we're all dead!"

"There will always be need for Jedi, living or dead," Yoda pronounced, "Now come back you will."

Yoda faded away. Anakin Skywalker and Anakin Solo gave a round of disheartened farewells before fading as well. Leaving the two parents with just their child and Qui-Gon Jinn.

"Would you like me to erase the memory of this visit from your minds? It must have been rather confusing," Qui-Gon asked politely.

"No…I don't think Ben will remember it and no one will ever believe it happened anyway," Mara replied.

Qui-Gon nodded, but before he faded away as well Luke stopped him with a request.

"Um, if you see Obi-Wan Kenobi," Luke said sheepishly, "Can you tell him -"

"I think he'd be delighted to be the boy's godfather," Qui-Gon interrupted.

"You knew?"

"I've been watching the Skywalker line very closely, Young Master," the Jedi Master said, "I have a, shall we say, personal investment in it, and so far it seems to be doing just fine. I shall tell Obi-Wan, first thing."

And with that the last dead Jedi faded from the room. Leaving behind two living ones and their child to watch the sun rising on Kashyyyk..
