Ahsoka couldn't sleep after the accident. She's worried about her Master. She got up and went to the cruiser's bridge.

There, she saw Anakin, silently brooding. She walked up beside him. His eyes looked out among the stars across the dark blanket of the sky. He seemed far, far away.

" You okay, master?" she asked.


She decided to let him be alone. Just as she started to walk away,


She turned around. Her master was still in his original position, facing the windows, hands behind his back, his fingers folded together. She walked over to him and unfolded one of his hands and enlaced it in hers. She could feel his strong hand squeezing back in reassurance.

His head turned towards hers. She could see the hardened tears that said he had been up here for a while.

"It's going to be okay." She said." I know how hard this must be for you. Obi-Wan wouldn't want you to.."

He started to sob. He collapsed to the floor, onto his knees, burying his face in his gloved hands. She knelt down beside him and sat cross-legged next to him. She could see the tears streaming from his eyes.

"WHY?" he screamed." WHY COULD'NT IT BE ME?"

" I don't know, master."

She wiped away a tear that started to form in her own eye.

"WHY DID HE DIE?" he yelled.

Anakin then repositioned himself and sat next to Ahsoka.

"I shouldn't have let him go on that mission," he said, wiping his face with his gloved hands. "I should've gone on that mission. I deserve to die."

Ahsoka then realized she was still holding his hand she gave it a short squeeze. He turned towards her.

"You don't deserve to die. You're a great Jedi, a legend practically. You have friend who care about you. You're smart, brave, reckless, all of them good things. You don't deserve to die," said Ahsoka. "We'll get through this together."
