1Disclaimer: I do not own Star Wars or the NJO.


You have always been there when I needed you. You have always loved me while I ignored you. You have always stuck by my side and could never bring me harm. Why is it now that I realize that I care for you? Is it because of the meld? Is it because of the Taat and the mind connection they caused us to have? Am I feeling what you feel for me? All this I ask but the one thing I do know is that I love you, Zekk.

Jaina shook her head to clear her thoughts before going back to fixing R2-D2. She looked over at Zekk as he read the data R2 was showing and shook his head at it.

"I really don't think that we will be able to get that file Master Skywalker wanted to see Jay. This is one stubborn droid." said Zekk as he looked at Jaina

"No, we need to get that data and we will." said Jaina as she continued to tinker with some of the panels "Even if I have to rip R2 apart to do it."

R2 beeped a response which Jaina and Zekk both chose to ignore, before C-3PO put his two cents in, "R2 watch your language and I must say Mistress Jaina that the odds of getting this file intact are exactly..." He was cut short by Jaina turning him off before she looked at Zekk and asked if he truly believed they couldn't do it.

"We'll see what we can do goddess." said Zekk as he handed her and instrument

Jaina and Zekk continued working until they finally took the poor droid apart and found the sector with the file on it. After a few more hours they were able to hook it up to the Jedi Temple's holo computer and were able to play it all. When they were finished watching it Jaina had tears falling down her cheeks.

"I'll go get my family, they will want to see this." said Jaina as she started walking towards the door

"Jaina." Zekk said as he caught her arm and turned her to him and wiped her tears away "You don't always have to hide everything, if you want to talk, I'll listen."

"Zekk...I ...I need to get my family." she said turning her eyes from him and trying to leave again

"Why do you push the people who love you away?" asked Zekk "After all we have been through, you still push me away."

"I, Zekk we can't." said Jaina as she leaned back against him when he wrapped his arms around her waist

"Why not?" asked Zekk as he rested his head on hers "Is it because of Jag, or Master Durron?"

"No, Zekk my life is full of trouble and my path is difficult." said Jaina referring to what Luke told her when she was named "Sword of the Jedi"

"As is every Jedi's life, and I'm willing to risk everything to be with you Jay." said Zekk

"We have to get my family, then after they see the holo images, maybe we can go for a walk?" asked Jaina

"Only if you'll be my girl." said Zekk as he let her go

"Fine." said Jaina before she leaned up and softly kissed his lips "Now come on lover boy."

"Now I get Jag's nickname, I feel special." said Zekk as he chuckled

"If your lucky you might be more to me then Jag ever was." said Jaina

"What's that your husband?" asked Zekk

His only answer was a smile and the door closing in his face. Maybe everything can work out because of you. Maybe the Sword of the Jedi can have happiness of her own because of you.

The End
