Amidala sat on her bed, holding up a mirror, covering up a bruise from her so called “happy marriage”. She and Anakin got into another fight about her friendship with Obi-wan Kenobi. Anakin, apparently thought that it was something more than a close friendship and hit her because she was “unfaithful” to him.

She stayed in her bed throughout the whole day and just stared at the wall in front of her, wondering how her relationship with Anakin had turned out this way. On the wedding day they were all so happy and it was as if they only saw each other in a crowded room. “We were so happy” Amidala sadly thought, then a few months after the joyous occasion Anakin’s mother, Shmi, died. He turned cold, bitter, and acted as though he didn’t care about anything or anyone.

Now he had this idea in his mind that Obi-wan and I were having an affair. Amidala sat on her bed for another hour until she heard the door open to reveal her close friend Obi-wan with a concerned look on his features. He immediately saw the bruise through the make up and rushed over to give her a hug as though to give her some kind of hope for the future. Amidala then started crying onto Obi-wan’s shoulder since he was the only one now that she could let her emotions out in front of. “Oh God she looks so vulnerable” thought Obi-wan and then he planted a kiss on top of her head to comfort her and tilted her chin up so that she would be looking at him. Obi-wan looked into her eyes and saw the loneliness and great sadness in those beautiful brown orbs.

After breaking off the gaze she then leaned back into his hug and sighed. Amidala was so emotionally drained that she fell asleep in Obi-wan’s arms in a matter of minutes, he saw this and put the young queen down on the bed and covered her with a warm blanket and left for his own room.

The next morning Amidala woke up refreshed and...happy for the first time in a while. Amidala had a dream that she and Obi-wan were married instead of her and Anakin. She then blushed at the thought and decided that she would spend day as Padme and spend the day at the palace gardens to figure out her feelings. Then a question popped into Padme’s head “I wonder if Obi-wan is busy today”. She then walked to the gardens with a smile on her face and a heart filled with new hope.
