Ahsoka rushed from the ship as fast as she could before the whole place came down on top of her. Running as fast as her legs would allow, she raced across the valley and looked to the lake of lava... There they were. Anakin and Obi-Wan. Fighting. She nearly cried. Maybe she wasn't too late. Ahsoka ran from her spot and down to the side. They could not see her. "It's over Anakin! I have the high ground!" Obi-Wan yelled. The molten building floated through the lava. "You underestimate my power!"
"Don't try it." Obi-Wan cautioned... Anakin jumped from the platform and Ahsoka jumped up. "No!" She yelled, jumping from a-top the hill and tackling Anakin to the ground, far away from Obi-Wan. "You're going to make a mistake, Master!" She said. "Ahsoka?" He suddenly lost all the hatred in his voice and looked at her. They sat atop of the hill, Ahsoka straddling her master's stomach and holding his hands above his head. "If you turn, you will bring down the Galaxy! You won't help the Empire, you will destroy it! Out of Hatred!" She yelled.
"What difference does it make?! The empire is already destroyed!" He shouted. "The difference is you will have to live the rest of your life, half a man! The only thing, keeping you alive, will be a respirator! Come back, Anakin! Come back to me, please! I want my Master back!" She pleaded, crying over him. "I can't do that, Ahsoka..." She looked down at him, face cringed, crying as hard as anyone had that day.
"No... No!" She screamed, punching her master as hard as she could. He kicked her off of him and took out his lightsaber. She did too and fought against him. "Ahsoka, stop!" Obi-Wan shouted. She just kept fighting, ignoring the Jedi Master. She pushed Anakin off her lightsaber and held her hand out, fingers extended and suddenly, Lightning emerged from her fingertips, shocking Anakin, making him fall on the ground. He screamed out in pain the more Ahsoka held the lightning. She then let it go, tightening her hand into a fist and gripping his neck.
She threw him on the ground and pointed the green lightsaber at his neck. "YOU WERE THE CHOSEN ONE, ANAKIN!" She screamed as loud as she could. "THEY SAID THAT YOU WOULD DESTROY THE SITH, NOT JOIN THEM!" he looked up with fury in his eyes and his former Padawan. "But you turned... Bring Balance To The Force! Not Leave It In Darkness!" She shouted.
He looked up. "I HATE YOU!" He screamed, his voice cracking. Ahsoka wiped her eyes. "No... I hate you right now. You were my Master! My closest friend! I loved you, Anakin!" She picked up his lightsaber and strapped it to her belt. "We're leaving, Master Kenobi. Padme doesn't have much time." She said, watching Anakin struggle to get on his feet. She knew that he despised her now.
But usually... It's the Masters who loose their students... Not the students who loose their masters. "It's a Dark Day for the Republic, Master." She said, walking back. "And a darker day for Anakin... Why did you do it?" He asked. "What?" She said, sniffling. "Why did you fight back?" He said. She sighed. "I did what was right... I had a vision that... You left Anakin to die in flames for the battle. I had to come, I had to stop it from coming true! I prevented it... Cause if it ended like I saw, he would be half of a man." She said.
He didn't ask anymore questions. They walked back to the ship. "Oh, Master Kenobi! I have Miss Padme on board. Please hurry! We should leave this dreadful place." C-3PO said. Ahsoka walked passed the shiny droid and on board to the medical room. Padme lied there, unconscious. Until Ahsoka reached out with the force, to touch her mind. She woke up. "Ahsoka...Is Anakin alright..." She said. Ahsoka ran the back of her hand down Padme's cold face before sighing.
"Physically... I'm sorry Padme... I failed." She said. Padme slipped back out into sleep and Ahsoka crouched down, gripping the sides of the medical bed, crying. She cringed her face and mentally beat herself up. They traveled back to Polis Massa where Padme received much needed Medical Attention. "So what now?" Ahsoka said, leaning against the glass from the room Padme was in.
"I don't know, Ahsoka... All we can do is wait." Obi-Wan told her. She nodded and did what was asked. A medical droid exited the room and faced the Jedi. "Medically, she is perfectly healthy... For reasons we can't explain, we are losing her." The droid said. Ahsoka gasped. "She's dying?" Obi-Wan said. "We don't know why. She has lost the will to live. We must operate quickly if we are to save the babies."
"Babies?" Ahsoka asked. "She is carrying twins." The droid said... "Oh, My god." She gasped, rubbing her temples. She ran to the viewing window and put her forehead on the glass, watching Padme... Helpless.
Soon, Padme was crying out in pain as she gave birth. The first baby was born and Ahsoka felt a tear roll down her cheek. "It's a boy..." The droid said in a different language. "Luke..." Padme breathed. Ahsoka held the crying baby in her arms and bent down next to Padme. "Oh, Luke..." She ran her hand down the side of the Newborn's cheek and then started screaming again. The second Child was born.
The droid spoke again. "It's a Girl." Ahsoka translated. "Leia." Padme said as Obi-Wan took the girl. Ahsoka looked down at her Master's baby and started crying. "We can do better for you... I swear." She said. The baby, Luke, wasn't crying but he wasn't silent either. Padme then said Ahsoka's name.
"Ahsoka... There's still good in him... I know... I know there's... Still..." And Padme took her last breath before slipping into the darkness. Ahsoka gave the baby to the Droid and left the medical room and onto the balcony as it rained... She screamed at the top of her lungs. She wished that her Master could see the pain he's caused her. Ahsoka wants to leave the Jedi Order now. She's scared that she will fail like him.
"Lord Vader... Can you hear me?" Anakin sat on the gurney, being pumped one injection of Bacta into his neck before sitting up, rubbing his forehead. "Where is Padme... Is she alright?" He said. Darth Sidious looked at the broken Jedi. "It seems that in your anger... You killed her." He told him.
"I couldn't have... She was alive! I felt it!" He yelled before every piece of medical equipment crumpled and squished out of anger. Anakin stood off the gurney and fell to his knees. "NO!" He screamed...
He is no longer Anakin. From that day forward, he is Darth Vader. But Ahsoka's vision was prevented... He is still a man. No burns or mechanics aside from his arm... He's still Anakin in flesh. Just not in soul...
"What should we do, Vader?" Sidious said. Anakin stood up off the floor... Anger broiled in his blood and he felt the Dark Side in his veins one more time before rising to his feet.
"First... We go after my Padawan."
"Hidden safe, the children must be kept." Master Yoda said. "We must take them where the Sith will not sense their presence." Ahsoka suggested. "Hmm, Split up, they should be." Yoda said, looking at Senator Organa. "My wife and I will take the girl." He spoke up.
Ahsoka looked at him. "We've always talked about adopting a baby girl... She will be loved with us." He said. "And what about Luke?" Ahsoka said. "To Tatooine... To his family, send him." She had to speak up. And she did.
"I will take the Child and watch over him." She said. "Ahsoka," Obi-Wan started. "No, Master Kenobi! If I couldn't help Anakin... Let me help Luke... Please, let me do this." She begged. He had to consider the possibilities that Ahsoka would fail but it was a risk he was willing to take. "Alright... Ahsoka will take care of the boy. From a distance, though." He said. She pursed her lips in anger.
"Very well. Until the time is right, Disappear, we will." Yoda said. The three Jedi bowed to Yoda and Senator Organa left. "Padawan Tano, Master Kenobi... Wait a moment. In your solitude on Tatooine, training, I have for you." He said. "Training?" She asked. "You are still a learner. And an old friend has learned the path to immortality... One who has returned from another world of the force... You're old master, Kenobi." He said... Ahsoka looked up at Obi-Wan. "Qui-Gon?" He asked.
"Who?" Ahsoka asked. "M-my Master..." He stuttered. Ahsoka looked at Yoda.
"How to commune with him, I will teach you."
Ahsoka jumped off the animal she was on and approached the house on Tatooine. A woman came outside and looked at the Togruta girl curiously. "Are you-" She started. "Yes... Please take care of him. And it's very important that he doesn't know who I am... Not until the time is right. And don't tell him about his father either... OK?" She said. "Yes, Miss Tano... I promise." She bowed and Ahsoka looked at Luke.
"Behave for her... OK?" She said. The baby boy reached up and grabbed one of her lekku's, gently tugging on it. Ahsoka started to cry and wiped her eyes. "I love you..." She kissed the infant's forehead and the woman walked away, with Luke...
Ahsoka wiped her tears away and got back on the animal before riding off. Nobody knew who she was here. Ahsoka changed her name and her clothes. She continues to learn the ways of the Jedi and observes Luke from a distance... Everyone calls her a Gypsy. A wizard of evil. A freak. She ignores them and grows stronger everyday... Until she meets Luke in person one day...
