Author's note: Companion to piece to Chapters 12-14 of Freefall.

Disclaimer: I do not own Star Wars. But the broken girl is mine.

You're broken when you leave me, and I know I've done this.

I did this.

I broke you: You were stronger than anything, stronger than all the death you'd lived with, stronger than the sum of the things that had been done to you, and I broke you.

I made you cry.

I would break myself to take it back, to never hurt you again.

I can't stand the way you look at me, hurt instead of trust in your eyes.

I want you back; I want it all back.

I want you to be safe again.

With me.
