Chapter Six: The Final One
"Anakin! I told you it would come to this! The Jedi are taking over!"
Palpatine was down, and cornered.
"I'm going to end this once and for all!" Mace Windu declared.
"Anakin! Stop him! Don't kill me! Please!"
"No, Chancellor. This ends now!"
Years ahead in the future, Luke Skywalker fell unconscious.
When Luke woke up, he was lying down on a bed. It was so soft! Someone was shaking him gently, telling him to get up.
"Luke. Luke, get up! How could you fall asleep now of all times?"
Luke opened his eyes.
"Yeah, Luke. Get up."
"What are you doing here?"
"Mom and Dad told me to come and get you. It's almost dinner time; my boyfriend will be here any minute! You guys are supposed to meet him tonight. Or have you forgotten?"
"Mom? Dad? Boyfriend? Are you my sister?"
"I've…….. always been your sister, Luke," Leia said getting confused.
"Yeah. Now get up. Han will be here soon."
"Han's your boyfriend!"
"What, have you met him?"
"Have I…………. um, Leia?"
Leia turned to see what her brother was looking at. Their parents, Padme and Anakin had just come in.
"It's just Mom and Dad, Luke."
"Come on, Luke," Padme said. "Will you get out of bed? You've been in bed almost all day!"
"I'm tempted to say I haven't," Luke said, thinking of when he was arguing with Anakin earlier, and when they were fighting bounty hunters. Yeah, sure he had been in bed all day!
And then it hit him. Apparently, years ago, back in the past, his father had made the decision not to go to the Dark Side! Luke grinned. Anakin had changed the course of history! And now, his life was going to be the way it was supposed to be.
Suddenly, Luke heard the doorbell ring.
"Luke, will you get that? It's probably Leia's boyfriend," Padme said.
Luke ran to the front door and opened it. And then his grin turned into a huge smile.
"Oh, hi! You must be Leia's brother. I'm Han Solo."
Han stepped inside, and Luke was about to close the door when he saw two other people outside.
It was Lando and Chewie!
"Oh, right," Han was saying. "I brought a couple of my friends. I hope you don't mind."
Luke just stood staring at his friends. This was great!
"What's the matter, junior? Never seen a Wookie before?"
"Chewie here says you're looking for passage to the Alderaan system."
"Will someone get this big walking carpet out of my way?"
"Chewie, take care of yourself, okay?"
"You'd be surprised."
