Author Note: Hey guys. This is just a little story I decided to write after the idea appeared in my head while I was daydreaming in class one day...oops!
Anyways, basically, its set one year after Return of the Jedi, and Leia and Han (now married) are accompanying Luke on a journey to Naboo. Luke recently found out that this was where his mother was buried, and seeing as he never knew her, he decided that now was as good a time as any to find out about her...starting with a journey to her tomb.
But there's someone on Naboo who is about to change their lives forever. Who is it, and what do they do? You'll have to wait and see.
Inspired, but NOT COPIED from a story called 'My Mother' by EsmeAmelia?(need to check that out to find out if i spelt it right!). Thanks for such a wonderful idea!
The stars shone brighter this night than they had for a long time. Leia found them magical as she gazed out of the window into the black space.
She wanted to stay here and gaze at them forever, but unfortunately, her husband didn't share the same idea.
A moment later, the Millenium Falcon lurched and jolted, throwing Leia against the window. Then the stars became nothing but streaks as they made the jump to hyperspace, the ship jerking, jolting and threatening to fall apart at any moment. It was no wonder people called it a bucket of bolts.
"You alright?" Luke asked worriedly as Leia peeled herself away from the window and rubbed her forehead. She smiled and nodded at her brother, secretly cursing him for dragging her on this awful journey. However, Luke was so excited, that she didn't want to spoil the mood with harsh words, so she kept silent.
"We'll arrive at Naboo in a few hours," came Han's voice from the cockpit, and a moment later he emerged, followed by his co-pilot Chewbacca, the gigantic wookie who was a loyal friend to all of them.
"Who wants a game?" he asked, nodding towards the sabaac table that Luke was sitting at.
"No, thanks," Leia sighed, turning back to the window and trying to focus at the speeding stars. She gave up in the end, feeling terribly light headed.
"Leia, whats up?" Luke asked, getting up and going over to her. Han quickly stole his seat and he and Chewie began a rather noisy version of sabaac with pleanty of growls and curses from both sides.
"I...I'm just not sure that I want to do this..." Leia sighed at last. Luke smiled sympathetically and wrapped his brotherly arm around her. With his other arm, the mechanical one, he began drawing on the window where Leia's breath had steamed it up.
"I know that it will be hard for you, but I have to know. You can stay on the ship if you really don't want to come, but I must know. Can't you understand that?"
"Of course I can Luke," Leia replied, knowing that she was being selfish. "I'm sorry. I'll come with you. After all, she was my mother too."
A/N: I'm sorry this was such a short chapter, but it was only the introduction. I've written a few more chapters after this, but I must get back to finishing Naboo first, so this might take a while to get started. Never fear, it will, I promise you!
