Epilogue

I am happy.

After twenty long years of struggling, fighting and hiding, I am finally safe and free.

My daughter is Chief of State of the New Republic, my son a Jedi Master of the New Jedi Order. I spend my days surrounded by friends and family, sometimes looking after my grandchildren when Han and Leia are called away. It is a peaceful, happy life.

My husband – my Anakin – and I are finally together again, and though he too is a Jedi Master, he is never far and always comes home as often as he can. We divide our time between Coruscant and Naboo – two homes.

Some days, when everyone is able, we eat dinner together – Anakin and I, Luke, Obi-Wan, Han and Leia and their children, even Chewbacca sometimes. We talk and laugh, and the atmosphere is warm and loving. It is everything I ever needed, everything I ever wanted.

The dull pain in my heart has gone, the love of my family and my husband washing away any trace of the hurt I suffered. I am finally whole, my family together again.

I am whole.

I am complete.

I am home.


I am happy.

After twenty long years of darkness and lies, I am finally free.

I am free from the prison the Dark Side held me in, free from the choking hold my anger and hatred had had on me.

I am now a Jedi Master, teaching with Luke and Obi-Wan the ways of the Force to younglings.

I return home as often as I can, home to my beautiful wife and sometimes my children and grandchildren. For twenty years, I felt I had no home – and now I see that it was because I had no love. Home is where you love and are loved – and so I will always have a home now as long as I am with my family.

My relationships with my children have grown close, and it is as though those twenty years of my life have been wiped clean. I still feel saddened when I think of all the moments that were robbed from me by my choices – the twins' first words, first steps, their entire childhood…and all the memories that will continue to haunt me. But as Obi-Wan advised me, the past is now in the past.

All I wanted was to be a Jedi, then later, Padmé's husband. Now, I am a Master, I am finally together with my wife again, and I have a family. A home. It is more than I ever wanted, more than I ever needed. I am no longer lost.

I am whole.

I am complete.

I am home.
