Disclaimer: The characters of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Queen Amidala, Anakin Skywalker & Palpitine (the s.o.b) don't belong to me but the almighty - George Lucas. This was just an idea, inspired by one of my fanfiction authors, Theed. The poem ~ Anakin ~ is mine. It is original. Enjoy:)
Obi-Wan stirred, feeling her fingers brush his back. He turned over, smiling at her. "What were you thinking about?" he asked, stroking her hair.
She nodded, "My handmaiden's and their hearts." Amidala paused, "They dreamed about you, fantasized about you and here I am, living the fantasy. But fantasies are made to bring us hope and I can't crush their hope."
He looked down, sensing the awkwardness in her voice. Amidala spoke, startling him. "Obi-Wan, before you knew who I really was - did you think I was a brat?"
The Jedi laughed, tightening his hold around. "You were Royalty, highness, but you weren't a brat."
"Humor me," she retorted.
Obi-Wan stared into her blue eyes. "You were you Amidala. Even in your hidden form, you were still the Queen. Qui-Gon recognized it. When we talked, sometimes he would complain to me about an head strong handmaiden that always seemed to have authority and regal than the Queen or like the Queen."
She smiled, "You still didn't answer my question. Did you think I was a Royal brat?"
"You were a child then."
Amidala smiled at him menacingly, "And now? Do you still see me as a child?" she asked, snuggling against his neck for comfort.
Obi-Wan kissed her forehead. "You will always be my sweet Royal handmaiden. That's who I knew and who I fell in love with," he paused, "I love who you are. I don't care if you're a Queen or Senator - I love the girl - the girl who is just discovering who she is,"
"I'll let the answer slip for now, because I don't want to annoy you," she joked, sudennly falling quiet. Anakin. He never saw her as a girl - only a trophy to show off. Obi-Wan was the first to see past her crown and love her for who she was and she loved him for that. They were different people, but loved Obi-Wan that way.
"Obi-Wan, can I ask you a question?"
He snuggled closer, smelling her dark hair, "What is it handmaiden?" he whispered into her neck, tickling her with his sweet breath.
"On Tatoonie, did you know I was the Queen?"
"I didn't realize anything in the beginning but as Qui-Gon and kept contact, and as our feud drew to a close - I suspected something was off. Qui-Gon suspected as well but didn't say anything."
She frowned, "Why?"
He shrugged, "Our job was to protect you. I consider it..."
"A job?" Amidala completed, sitting up.
Kenobi nodded no, "A Privilege and an Honor." Sitting up to kiss her neck again.
Amidala smiled, "Well I consider it an Privilege and an Honor to be loved by you, Jedi Kenobi,"
Obi-Wan smiled, "As I also, highness. As I also,"
Anakin Skywalker walked casually into the main room, removing his cloak and settling it into the closet. He froze a minute, sensing a disturbance but ignored it as he made his way over to the kitchen to grab something to eat. As he opened the fridge, he froze again - only this time the feeling was more intense and somewhat familiar. He dropped what he was doing and quietly drifted across the room, towards Obi-Wan's room. As he neared, he heard giggles. Giggles? His Master wasn't alone. Anakin reached for the handle but got a strong feeling from the Force - a strong enough to feel what was happening beyond the door.
He felt around before feeling that "familiar presence", She lay next to him, giggling like a little girl and snuggling close, brushing her arms with his. Obi-Wan leaned down, kissing her shoulder and surprising her with a kiss on her mouth. Anakin frowned. <IT's not possible. She couldn't...> he thought, reaching out further to see if he was wrong. She kissed him back, feeling down his back.
Anakin pulled back appalled by what he saw. Amidala - the love of his life and Obi-Wan, his trusted friend and father - were together. He always thought Amidala loved him, honestly loved him but obviously she didn't. She was toying him around all along, playing with him like he was a boy and didn't know what LOVE was. He clenched his fists. Anakin did know what love was. He loved Amidala since the day he met her in Watto's Shop. He moved away in disbelief. His Angel, his love, his Queen, his PÓdme didn't love him but his Master.
