Chapter Six: Final Chapter

A/N: Now I realize that some of you may possibly have been upset by the shattering cliffie I left for you at the end of the last chapter, but I did what I did with reason. But with the Force, anything is possible. Especially with Anakin. And one more thing: This is Chapter Six, I made a typo the last chapter-- the last chapter was the fifth chapter and I was too lazy to go back and delete the chapter. My apologies.

Padmé screamed her anguish, her heart shattering with unbearable grief. Anakin was gone, forever, and she was left alone, to watch as her children-their children-grew up without knowing their father. "No!" The former Senator screamed, tears pouring down her cheeks. An arm wrapped around her, pulling her into a hug. "Padmé, shh..." Obi-Wan's comforting voice soothed quietly. Padmé sobbed into the Jedi Master's embrace, knowing that the same grief she felt was only echoed on her friend's face. Obi-Wan had witness the last few moments of his brother's life as he sacrificed himself for the galaxy, recieving a message from Anakin.

Watch over Padmé. Protect her and the children for me.

It touched Obi-Wan to know that Anakin had trusted him with guarding the three people more important to Anakin then anything in the galaxy. I will watch them, my brother. And may the Force be with you as you watch your family, Obi-Wan sent through the Force.Obi-Wan felt tremors in the Force. "Padmé. We have to go." Obi-Wan said to the shaking woman in his arms. The Senator was unresponsive for a few moments. She almost seemed to want to stay and let herself die, just so she could follow Anakin. "Padmé. Your children still need you." Obi-Wan said softly. Padmé's brown eyes stared up at him. "You're right," she sniffled. "We have to go," Obi-Wan re-affirmed. Amidala's eyes wandered over the room. "Where's that red headed girl?" Obi-Wan followed the young woman's gaze. Mara Jade was gone, seemingly vanished. "I've no idea," Obi-Wan said. Obi-Wan quickly made his way over to Siri and sighed. She was still alive.

Obi-Wan grimaced when a peice of tile nearly hit his head. Picking Siri up, Obi-Wan turned to Amidala. "Let's go," he said.

The palace's whole foundation seemed to be shaking as the Jedi and Senator made their escape. "What's going on?" Padmé questioned. "Anakin's death. It's sending vibrations throughout the whole galaxy..." Obi-Wan stopped off, horrified. "What?" Kenobi's female companion asked. "Anakin didn't realize-- his power could trigger the destruction of the entire galaxy. His death wasn't prophesized," Obi-Wan clarified, watching as terror flooded Amidala's expression, mirroring his own. "Oh no."

Anakin Skywalker, the Chosen One, felt like an initiate all over again. "You have passed all the trials placed before you. We congragulate your elevation to full Jedi status." A disembodied voice told the young Jedi. Joy filled Anakin's entire being. He had finally made it to Master... but then his joy fell away. At the cost of his own life. "You have proved beyond a doubt that you are the Chosen of Prophecy," a familiar voice stated to Anakin. Mace Windu stood before his younger colleague. "Master Windu," Anakin said, bowing. "Anakin. There is no need for formality." Mace said, looking solemn, but Anakin could sense his smile. "It was your sacrifce that destroyed the Sith. Which is why you have been given a gift from the Force itself." Anakin stirred, his eyes wide with surprise. "And what would that be?"

Padmé and Obi-Wan finally managed to find a shuttle that hadn't been destroyed or crushed in the falling debris. Siri had been laid tenderly onto a sofa-type chair, allowing her comfort for the moment. Obi-Wan tenderly placed a hand on Siri's pale face for a moment, regretting what he had been forced to do. "Obi-Wan!" Padmé yelled, bringing the former Jedi's attention back to the very real, very dangerous situation they were in now. "OK, engines are fine, weapons," Obi-Wan checked outloud and quickly. It would do them no good to escape in a gimp ship. But to his surprise, everything checked out fine. "Alright. Strap yourself in. It's going to be a very bumpy ride," Obi-Wan warned Padmé, feeling a pang of grief as he thought of Anakin's smiling face saying almost the exact same words three years ago.

Coruscant was literally watching the sky fall. Meteorites, glowing red, were falling onto the city planet, descimating everything in their path. Civilians and Politicians alike, were running for their lives, hoping to find some shelter that wasn't overcrowed with people. Coruscant's bright sunny sky changed into a dark smoky filled canvas, like something from an apocolyptic future that had been pushed backwards. One tiny shuttle tried as hard as possible to maneuver its way through the darkening sky. Obi-Wan gritted his teeth as the ship rocked from side to side, tryng to avoid the meteorites.

Padmé had simply become blank, lost in her emotions. She knew they were in danger, but the loss of her husband was still such a huge blow to her. Padmé closed her eyes, grief washing over her once more. Anakin's radiant smile, his vibrant blue eyes... she'd never see them again. Tears slipped, unbidden, out of the former Senator's eyes. She was only jerked out of her thoughts as a large meteorite hit the shuttle, damaging the small ship. Obi-Wan cursed as the shuttle stopped. They were now sitting ducks.

"I'm sorry," Obi-Wan said quietly. "What for?" Padmé questioned. "We're all going to die because of me. Anakin's last wish was for me to protect you and I couldn't even do that right," Obi-Wan said bitterly. "it's not your fault, Ben," Padmé said sternly. "Millions of people are going to die," Obi-Wan responded back, his words going through Amidala like a sharp spear. If Anakin had known... surely he would have looked for another way?

The two watched as an impossibly large meteorite headed for them. It was larger then Corsucant, as impossible as that size may seem. The planet started breaking up as the meteorite hit. Padmé Amidala and Obi-Wan closed their eyes, awaiting their deaths.

But when they opened their eyes next, they were on Naboo. "Wh-?" Obi-Wan questioned. "Shouldn't we be dead?" "As Master Yoda is fond of saying, the future is always in motion, Padawan," Qui-Gon Jinn appeared in front of the two. Obi-Wan glanced around, checking to see if he was actually still alive. Siri lay on the grass a few feet away. "Siri," Obi-Wan breathed, moving towards the blonde Jedi. "She's still alive, Padawan. The galaxy is at peace once more." Qui-Gon smiled at his former apprentice. "I don't understand," Padmé said. "An old friend has returned to stop the galacy from breaking apart. It was not yet his time." Qui-Gon said. "Thank you, Master Jinn," a familiar deep voice sounded from behind Padmé. The woman whirled around, her eyes going wider then flying saucers. "ANAKIN !"

Waking up I see that everything is OK
The first time in my life and now it's so great
Slowing down I look around and I am so amazed
I think about the little things that make life great

I wouldn't change a thing about it
This is the best feeling

"oh my god, you're OK!" Padmé said, kissing her husband's face desperately, checking to make sure he was alive and not an illusion. Anakin held his wife tightly, vowing to never let her go again. Padmé put her hands up to Anakin's head. "I love you, Anakin. Don't ever die on me again," She said sternly. Anakin smiled feebly. "I'll try not to." Behind them, Obi-Wan grinned as he was invited to come and join the hug, allowing the old friends for a group hug.

This innocence is brilliant
I hope that it will stay
This moment is perfect
Please don't go away
I need you now
And I'll hold on to it
Don't you let it pass you by

"This had been one of the paths forseen by the Force. That was why Anakin's sacrifice was required. If he had not done what he had, Sidious would have won. The Chosen One will bring balance to the Force through sacrifice," Qui-Gon told the trio, smiling at their joyous reunion. Obi-Wan stared at his Master. "When was this found out?" Qui-Gon sighed. "When the prophecy began. When Anakin turned to the dark. Luckily, he stepped away from the path that had seemed inevitable that he would take. And in turn, saved the galaxy from further corruption."

I found a place so safe, not a single tear
The first time in my life and now it's so clear
Feel calm, I belong, I'm so happy here
It's so strong and now I let myself be sincere

Anakin and Padmé finally managed to get away for some alone time, snuggling alone in their bedroom. "I love you so much, Anakin." Padmé declared to her husband. "And I, you," Anakin said, lowering his mouth to his wife's in a passionate kiss.

I wouldn't change a thing about it
This is the best feeling


This innocence is brilliant
I hope that it will stay
This moment is perfect
Please don't go away
I need you now
And I'll hold on to it
Don't you let it pass you by

After a few days of recovery, Siri awakened from her force induced sleep and she and Obi-Wan talked about what had happened. "I'm sorry, Siri," Obi-Wan said. "I shouldn't have been so stupid- I was just try-" Siri put a finger to Obi-Wan's mouth. "You talk too much, Kenobi," She grinned at him before slowly leaning forward and softly kissing Obi-Wan, who was surprised at first, but then responded back, rather eagerly.

It's a state of bliss, you think you're dreaming
It's the happiness inside that you're feeling
It's so beautiful it makes you wanna cry
It's a state of bliss, you think you're dreaming
It's the happiness inside that you're feeling
It's so beautiful it makes you wanna cry

Within days of avoiding the near Apocolypse, a celebration was held all over the galaxy, from Naboo to the Outer Rim, to everywhere. Supporters of Palpatine had been captured and arrested, and were currently awaiting trial. The Jedi had come out of hiding, and the galaxy apologized profusely for their blindness about what Palpatine had told them and the Jedi accepted the apologies, vowing to make the galaxy a safer place with the help of the whole galaxy.


It's so beautiful it makes you wanna cry
This innocence is brilliant
Makes you wanna cry
This innocence is brilliance
Please don't go away
Cause I need you now
And I'll hold on to it
Don't you let it pass you by

On the planet of Naboo, a Jedi Master took a small box from his Master and headed out to where he knew his lover would be. Having recieved permission from Yoda to do so, obi-Wan stopped in front of Siri and proposed his love to her.

This innocence is brilliant
I hope that it will stay
This moment is perfect
Please don't go away
I need you now
And I'll hold on to it
Don't you let it pass you by

Siri and Obi-Wan were wed three months later, with a double wedding. The Force was content with allowing Anakin and Obi-Wan their true rewards, love and family. Nine months later, Siri Kenobi had her first child, and the Skywalkers were named the godparents. As Anakin, Padmé, Siri, and Obi-Wan grew old, their children took on the mantles as Jedi Knights, learning from the Jedi Masters who helped rebuild the Jedi Order to a new glory.

And when the old Masters passed away, their children's children passed on the mantle and so on and so forth. And there were many challenges, but the Force was very sure in one thing.

The Jedi would always exist, despite the odds.

And nothing could change that.
