I don't own Star Wars. I grew up watching it though.
He tried to remove the wire but all he accomplished were cuts on his fingers. Besides the Force told him that it was already too late.
Oh Anakin, why? Obi-Wan silently asked the lifeless body of his former padawan and friend.
For hours Obi-Wan sat there holding Anakin's lifeless body.
"It gets worse." A voice whispered.
Obi-Wan turned to see the being watching him with sad eyes. "How can it possibly get worse? The person I wanted to save is dead!" he said.
"As I speak Padme Amidala is also committing suicide. Leaving behind a husband she never loved." "She would have grown to love him." Obi-Wan replied. "It wasn't her choice to marry him and he didn't love her n the first place and had no desire to love her."
"So you see you didn't make anything better by changing it." The being said. "Of course I did. Here the Sith are gone and I didn't kill Anakin. There Sidious is still alive, Anakin is dead, the Jedi Order is gone and two children are orphans." Obi-Wan shot back.
"The Oder is gone because they were stagnant and refused to evolve. Padme was too distraught to gather the will to live, there are many orphans in the galaxy Obi-Wan and as for killing Anakin. . . ." The being spread out its hands.
"You pretend to love it here, but I know that you miss the Anakin you knew and loved like a brother, friend and son. You wish that you just fought the council instead of destroying Anakin's relationships."
"Obi-Wan's head shot up. How does it know that? The being smiled gently. "There is a lot that I know Obi-Wan."
The being was silent for a moment.
"Would you like to return to your place in the galaxy?" It asked. Obi-Wan frowned. "You mean that this isn't real?" he asked. "It is real only in your mind." Was the response.
I would rather be watching the son of my deceased student and friend than live this false life. He thought.
"I would like to return to the real world." he told the being.
The being nodded. "I am glad that I can keep the promise that I made over a thousand years ago in both realms."
There was a bright flash of light and Obi-Wan found himself in his hut on Tatooine.
"Are you alright Obi-Wan?' he heard Qui-Gon ask. Obi-Wan slowly nodded his head.
"You need to get going. The Lars are heading to Anchorhead." "Thanks," Obi-Wan replied as he hurried out the door.
Obi-Wan sat watching the Holonet hoping for something new like the identity of Sidious's new apprentice.
The only thing he saw though was a being dressed head to toe in black wearing a breath mask.
Obi-Wan felt cold, he knew who the being was. The reporter just confirmed it.
