This is the last post for this fic. Mara and Luke's story will continue in my AU of The Thrawn Trilogy. I pray that I do it justice.
It has been fun.
Mara could feel Luke's nervousness through the door.
Shaking her head she palmed it open.
"You ready to go?" Luke asked her. Mara nodded.
They left her quarters and left the Temple for Memorial Park.
They walked until they reached a secluded part of the Park.
"Mara," Luke began. "There is so much that I want to tell you. You are intelligent, snarky, a quick learner and beautiful."
Luke dropped to one knee and pulled out a ring.
"Mara Jade Kryze, would you do me the pleasure of becoming my wife?" He asked.
Mara felt a smile form on her lips.
"I would love to!" She cried.
That night they dined with the Solos and Jixtons.
"We have an announcement to make." Luke said.
Mara smiled as she revealed her ring to the adults.
Ahsoka and Leia shared a smile while Han handed Jix a credit. While the children looked puzzled.
"Uncle Luke and Mara are going to get married!" Leia told Bail. "And then you are going to have cousins."
Bail blinked at his mother in confusion.
"I marry Ailyn." Bail declared.
"So, when is the wedding?" Jix asked. "Not for awhile.' Luke said. "My mother and cousin need some time to set affairs in order on Mandalore before we can get married." Mara said.
Every last Ghost in the Temple had come to congratulate him upon hearing that his daughter was going to be getting married.
Truth be told Obi-Wan wasn't sure if he was ready for his daughter to get married now. He had discovered that he had a daughter about two years ago and he still wasn't quite used to the idea. But he knew that Luke and Mara truly loved each other and that Luke would take care of his little girl.
He found himself sympathizing once again with Anakin. He, like Anakin, hadn't realized that he had offspring until later in life.
He wandered the halls of the Temple until he found Anakin working on some piece of junk.
"I a few months we are going to be related." He told his former Padawan. Anakin nodded.
"How long did you know that Mara was my daughter?" He asked. "I suspected something when I first laid eyes on her but nothing concrete." Anakin replied.
"I gave Luke my permission to ask her to marry her Anakin. I barely know her and now she's getting married!" Obi-Wan said.
"You know her well enough Obi-Wan." Anakin replied.
"I wasn't there for her!" Obi-Wan snapped "I wasn't there to protect her from Sidious. I was too concerned about Luke to think of the consequence. If I knew about Mara I would have talked Satine in coming away with me."
"Stop beating yourself up Obi-Wan, I am the only Ghost allowed to do that." Anakin said.
"Look, Mara has forgiven you for what you have done and she doesn't blame you." Anakin explained.
"Satine is announcing Mara's engagement tomorrow." Anakin said, changing the subject; somewhat.
"The whole galaxy is going to want a big wedding." Obi-Wan said with a groan.
"I know." Anakin said with a humorless laugh.
"You can have some of my time if that is the case." Anakin offered.
Obi-Wan smiled. "Thanks my old friend."
Luke and Mara will be married in my rewrite of the Thrawn Trilogy which is in writing now.
