Padmé Amidala Kenobi tossed back and forth in her bed, sweat tracing her forehead and brow. She saw faces, felt their pain and darkness.... She realized that the Republic was crumbling away, due to Palpatine and his obsessed hunt to kill the only good thing left in the Galaxy, the Jedi Order. She never suspected him, never realized - but neither did the Jedi. That's what troubled her. How could they not feel he was darkness? It didn't make any sense. Nothing made sense anymore. Everything that was, was gone.

"Nooooooo!" Padmé bolted up from her darkened slumber in sweat. All was not gone. She turned to her side. Empty. The former Queen shook her head defiantly as she stood up from the bed, grabbing a silk red kimono robe. She tightened the sash, glancing around at the desolate room.

She searched the room for her love, as the storm pounded on the window. It was very fitting. Of course, it could have been a harsh nightmare. She could have been just sleeping but she needed to be sure. Something told her she needed to be sure. Padmé squinted, noticing a brown robe on a chair. She rushed over, feeling the robe with her hands. Tears were beginning to form. He was gone. Her love, her husband...he was gone.

"Padmé, love?" a voice asked from behind.

Amidala slowly turned facing the Jedi. Her hands dropped the robe as they reached up, trailing his face. Yes, it was he. He was all right. Palpatine didn't get him. She flung herself on him, crying frantically. "Oh Gods, Obi-Wan! I thought you were dead. Voices, I heard voices. They were crying out...their pain. They were there and then they were gone."

He nodded, gently walking her to the bed. She obediently sat down, hands folded her lap but the pain was still in her eyes. "Obi-Wan, I didn't imagine it. They were real. I felt their pain, their terror --- then they were silent." She looked down, staring at her hands, mumbling under her breath. "He killed them."

"Ami, what you saw --- a few minutes ago, I felt it. The Jedi Order, Palpatine and Vadar breached security ----they're dead. All of them."

"Oh Gods!
They're dead?! That means you're the only one left. You're the only one." She cried, "but that can't be? The Jedi, they're invincible, and good. How could they....?"

Obi-Wan didn't respond. He simply dropped his head, taking her hands in his and kissed them. "They were my life. But now you are. I made that sacrifice. I loved you. I wouldn't trade anything I said or was done." He paused, as she scooted next to him, resting her hand on his shoulder. Obi-Wan bent his head, kissing her neck slightly. "You are my whole life. They were. That's true but it's one thing I've learned, it's that love always wins out - no matter what."

He felt her beginning to drift off to sleep again. Obi-Wan began to remove her from his side, but she clung her arms around his waist and smiled. "I love you, Obi-Wan, my husband. I've always loved you."

"I love you too, my sweet handmaiden." He smiled lightly, resting on the bed - his wife resting on his side, her arms resting on his abdomen. Obi-Wan lightly kissed her head as he allowed himself to fall asleep next her.

**

Amidala blinked, waking up the next morning. The storm had passed, but she still heard some noise. She raised her head, still feeling a bit sleepy. She was about to call her husband but he briskly entered the room, carrying an extra robe. He smiled, noticing his love was awake. Obi-Wan sat down on the bed, kissing her lightly before Amidala grabbed hold of the robe, pulling it away from him.

"What's this?"

"For you." He replied, pushing back her bangs.

She shrugged, dropping the robe to her lap. Amidala laughed once she recognized what the robe was. "You want me to dress like a Jedi? Like you? Why?"

He shrugged, giving in. His jovial face gave out and a stern one, one of deep concern, replaced it. "We're leaving. We have to. It's not safe here anymore, my love."

Amidala frowned, lowering her head slightly but Obi-Wan's hand brought it back up and he continued. "I know. I don't like it either. I don't want to leave her, but it is no longer safe. Palpatine’s spies are everywhere and considering his hold over Anakin, his first command would be to kill one last link to his old life ---- You."

"But I'm not Anakin's wife. I'm yours." Amidala replied.

"I know that but in Anakin's eyes, you've always been his." He paused, considering his words. "Amidala, he's very dangerous, they both are. We can't risk the possibility that one of his spies is here on Naboo, watching us; waiting for the right time to strike. I won't risk your life like that."

She smiled, brushing her left hand on his face. "You were always very sweet." Obi-Wan caught her hand and kissed her palm. "And I trust your judgment. Though I am sad. Naboo's been my home since I was a child. I was always safe here and now I have to leave it."

He smiled reassuringly at her. "I promise, one day you'll return here and you'll be safe again. We'll both be safe."

"I wish I could believe that." She replied, glancing at the robe one more time. "Masquerading as a Jedi, huh? It's dangerous. We could be caught."

"Not if we're shielded, using the Force."

Amidala gasped, dropping the robe to her lap. She leaned over, kissing him softly. "You're the wise husband."

Obi-Wan rose from the bed, smiling down at her small form. Despite all the evil around them, she had managed to remain at calm and keep up a happy facade. It made him more proud of her than himself.

Genre: Romance/Drama

Obi-Wan Kenobi heard the cries of millions as he helplessly stood back and watched the destruction. He couldn't move to help any of them. His legs and arms were paralyzed. He wanted to help them but he couldn't. He stood there, fixated on a single man...his former Apprentice and friend. How things had become from light to darkness only within a few months, he wasn't able to fathom. He cursed himself for not seeing the change in him sooner and not speaking up when he had the chance. Now, all the Galaxy were made to suffer and it was all because the Jedi Master fell in love with the same woman his former Padawan loved and he married her. The day Obi-Wan married Padmé on Naboo, he hadn't regretted his decision because he loved her deeply and would do anything to protect her and his children.

Children. During the first couple months of their marriage, Obi-Wan and Padmé decided it would be better not to have children so quickly because it would hurt Anakin. But they did agree if Anakin accepted the truth, they would go ahead and try to have a child. And there was also the issue of dealing with the Council. Obi-Wan really hadn't done that. He went to Naboo to safeguard the Senator from assassins and worrying herself. At that time, Anakin was busy with his studies and constant testing giving by the Council. He couldn't leave but Obi-Wan was granted permission to see to the Queen, a fateful decision that had to two sets of outcomes.

One, after the assassin was thwarted, Obi-Wan remained on Naboo with the Queen in case there was another attempt as also as her friend and advisor. It was then that their feelings for one another surfaced. After Padmé talked with Sabé about her feelings for the Jedi, she went to him directly and proclaimed that she loved him and that wanted to enjoy life, the rest of her life with him and he accepted. Captain Panaka didn't like the idea but went along it because as her protector and trusted friend, he had never gone against his Queens wishes.

They were married in only a few days and after they were married, and enjoying their short honeymoon, Obi-Wan was called back to Coruscant because Anakin had a premonition that his mother would die. The Council refuted Anakin's plea to go to Tatooine to see his mother but they relented once Obi-Wan arrived. The two Jedi went to the dessert planet, unsure what to expect...then the tension grew. Anakin asked why it had taken him so long to take care of the Queen, if the assassin had already be captured and executed. His Master replied that the Naboo Security had to make sure there no were no accomplices and that it was safe for her to return to the Senate. He could tell the boy didn't buy it because he focused his attention on the flight and was quiet the rest of the journey.

When they arrived on Tatooine, it was too late. Shmi was already dead, killed by Mandalorians. Anakin stood before the old hovel, staring at it before dropping onto the ground in despair and started to cry. Obi-Wan glanced at the old home, then at his Padawan.

"Ani, I'm sorry. I wish.... I'm sorry."

Anakin stopped crying, and turned around facing his Master. A smile crossed his face but it wasn't the same smile; Obi-Wan felt darkness behind it. "You're sorry?" He stood up, his hand resting on his sabre, an action not lost upon his Master. "What exactly are you sorry for, Master?"

"Your Mother, of course. It was a tragedy."

He nodded no, still fingering his sabre. "No, that's not what you're sorry about it. It's something else, something more personal."

Obi-Wan shook his head, his eyes not leaving his Padawan's sabre. "I don't know what you're talking about, Ani."

"Oh, yes you do. Admit it." He whispered coldly.

"I don't know...."

Anakin's fingers began to tap his sabre as he faced the Jedi. "I know, Obi-Wan." He paused, pacing around his Master in a circle. "You think I wouldn't notice, wouldn't feel anything. I felt on the shuttle ride over. You've changed and I know why."

His eyes finally left Anakin's sabre and he looked the young Jedi straight in the eye. "And what do you presume is reason for this change?"

Anakin thrust foreword, grabbing Obi-Wan's collar. "You married her. You took her away from me; you've blinded her and you've tried to hide it from me but I can see. My Master taught me that."

**

Obi-Wan awoke with a jolt, sweat streaming down his sides and chest. For months now, he had been reliving the same nightmare over and over. It was the Force's way to punish him for all he had done to Anakin. Now, others would suffer for his actions and Amidala...He didn't want his wife to suffer for what he did, but he couldn't help that. If Amidala did feel pain, she didn't show it. She was a strong woman, stronger than he anticipated. A couple months ago, she had suffered through a horrid nightmare. Anakin and Palpatine had exterminated all the Jedi. She felt their pain, their fears and even she wasn't a Jedi. It didn't make sense at first but after meditating on it, it made sense. After all this time, unbeknownst to her, she had been strongly connected to the Force. Her parents must have shielded her from it and the planet's testing because they didn't want to lose their daughter to the Jedi and in a way, they did because she married one.

"Obi-Wan..."

He turned to side, as Padmé stirred from her sleep. Obi-Wan bent down, kissing her forehead. She smiled. "What's wrong?"

"Nothing. Go back to sleep."

She nodded no, as her eyes finally adjusted to the light. "No, something's wrong. What is it?"

He hung his head low and she nodded back. "You had the same nightmare again, didn't you?"

"Yes."


She raised a hand, stroking his head and sighed. "You're not alone, husband. I worry too. I worry because either Ani or Palatine can locate us at any minute..."

"I fear it even more because of you. What if he finds you and hurts you."

Amidala nodded her head. "He could never hurt me. He loves me the same way I know you'll love our child."

Obi-Wan froze, turning his head back to her. She smiled, lying hand on her stomach. "I've pregnant my love...with our child. I know it'll be hard, with us on the run all the time, but I know we can do it."


"Ami..."

She rolled her eyes, beginning to get angry. "You don't have to tell me this is bad timing, Obi-Wan. I know it is...but I don't care. I want this child." Obi-Wan sighed as she continued. "At the end, whenever the end is, I might not be around and because of that, I don't want you to be alone. I want some part of me to always be with you, and some part of you to always be with me.... I love you."

Obi-Wan bent over, kissing her shoulder. "I love you, too, Ami. And I understand. This war, this Hell, I'm not even sure I'll survive this. The future is in constant motion..." he paused, laying a hand on her belly, smiling. "And thus far, it doesn't seem that bad."

**

Some months later...

Bail Organa watched the small craft land, as two more handmaidens joined his highness. One of them, Amidala's former handmaiden and best friend, Sabé, managed to leave Naboo some months before Amidala did, as a decoy, so Palpatine would follow her instead and remove all Imperials from the planet. It worked, but only momentarily until the Emperor realized she was a decoy to allow the Queen and Obi-Wan leave the planet safely. Sabé heard part of the message she sent earlier, so she knew some details on the situation. The ramp extended, revealing Obi-Wan, helping his wife walk off the platform. Her tummy was beginning to show, which meant it was only a matter of time before Anakin sensed she was with child and he exploited that information to his Master. They had to work fast.

Obi-Wan nodded to Sabé, as she ran over, helping her friend. "It is good to see you, Padmé." She whispered as they confronted Bail.

Bail gave them a small smile and quickly faced the Jedi Master. "You should have contacted me sooner, Jedi. It isn't safe for her to roam around the galaxy in her condition."

He was about to reply but Amidala held her high and replied for him. "It was my decision, your highness. I could have been safer here on Alderaan, but I couldn't leave my husband to fight Anakin and his Master alone. I wanted to be by his side."

Organa waved his hand, gesturing other handmaidens to help the former Queen.

**

After being situated, Obi-Wan went to talk to Bail, leaving his wife with Sabé. The two hadn't spoken since Sabé volunteered to act as decoy one last time for her highness. Since day one, Sabé promised to always be there for her friend, no matter what and to this day, she had kept that promise. However, it wasn't Amidala's decision for Sabé to take on a dangerous task. It was Sabé’s. Amidala hated the idea, but relented because it was the only solution at the time to ensure their safety off the planet. Over the years, Amidala managed to keep in touch with most of her handmaidens after she retired as Queen, but it was hard. They were constantly on the move and busy, but Sabé, remained in her position as her best friend.

"I'm sorry for leaving you." Sabé whispered, looking down.

"You had no choice. There were no other choices, Sabé. If there had been a choice, it probably would have been just as risky." Amidala gave her friend a smile, taking her hand. "You have always been a true friend, Sabé. Thank you."

The older girl blushes, nodding back. "It has been an honor to serve you, your highness."

**

Obi-Wan smiled, sensing his wife was at peace with her friend. Bail noticed the smile and smiled himself. "What is it?" he asked.

"Sabé and Amidala. Before Sabé left, Ami hated the idea of her acting as decoy again. I think she may have resented her for it, but now, they're all right. We're all right."

Bail nodded, but quickly frowned as he sat on his desk chair. The two of them were in a private office, located in the palace. The Emperor had occupied worlds in the inner room, but Alderaan was yet to join those worlds. It was still independent and therefore a haven to anyone. "Still, we need to work out a plan. Your child, when he or she is born, it will be very dangerous."

He nodded back as a dark cloud settled on the Jedi's features. He didn't want to lose the child, but if worst came to worse, they would have to think of something and that was exactly why they were there on Alderaan. "Your thoughts?"

"Hide the little one. Maybe here on Alderaan or on some other desolate planet with two handmaidens, while the two of you create new identities."

"New identities?
Is that really necessary? What if we want to contact each other and don't know where to look? Some years from now, one of us maybe dead we'll have never known about it." Obi-Wan cried.

"I understand your concern, Obi-Wan. But keep in mind, most Jedi who had survived the Emperor's purge had to change their name in order to remain hidden. We can't make exceptions. It's the only way the three of you will be safe."

Obi-Wan gasped, rubbing his rough chin. In the last few months, he had started to grow a beard, much like his old Master. It was defiant of the Jedi Code, but it didn't really matter since most of the Order was gone anyway. As far as he knew, he was the only Jedi left in the galaxy, which put him at the top of Palpatine’s hit list, along with his wife. If she bore children, she would also be a threat and now she was pregnant with his child, putting her life in danger as well. "All right. As long as it keeps Ami and Mara safe. I agree."

"Mara?"

He nodded yes. "Her name. Our daughter's name. It's Mara Jade." He paused, "It's as you said. Our names, they never existed, which means our child's name, shouldn't resemble both our names. It's done."

Bail nodded. "No, my friend, it's only the beginning."

**

Another 2 months later...

Obi-Wan watched two more handmaidens' rush into the chambers as he sat back, waiting with Bail. Amidala had given birth prematurely, but she was all right. The baby was a bit weak, but he was assured she would live. Sabé was inside with her, keeping her friend company while doctors saw to the baby. They arrived two hours ago and they had since not come out, which made Obi-Wan very nervous.

"Don't worry, Obi-Wan. She's probably all right. They're both all right." Bail added, surprising the Jedi. It had been hours since anyone had talked, so it took him a few minutes to realize who it was. The two turned once Sabé left the room, carrying a small baby girl. She smiled, handing her over to Obi-Wan to hold.

"Her name is Mara Jade, as you said. She's a bit weak, but I'm sure, after nourishment, she'll be stronger." Sabé replied, smiling at the tiny one.

Obi-Wan glanced up at Sabé and smiled. "Thank you, Sabé."

She nodded, glancing back at the room. Obi-Wan saw her concern and frowned, his eyes focused on the room. "Is she all right?"

"She's weak. The labor, it was harsh and painful. She needs time to sleep before you can go in to see her. I know you want too. She's your wife and my sister, but give her time, Obi-Wan."
He nodded, sitting down with the girl. Sabé stood there watching father and daughter and smiled. She green eyes and red hair, a terrific advantage because no one would ever suspect who her parents were. She was beautiful, the most beautiful thing Obi-Wan had ever seen in his life. She was the only good thing to happen to him in a long time since he married Amidala. He just hoped Amidala would be strong enough to be able to see how beautiful her daughter was as he saw her.

Obi-Wan looked up at Sabé, whom faintly smiled at him. He hadn't noticed it before but she was pale and looked like she wasn't about to collapse. "Sabé?"

She met his gaze and smiled. "I'm all right, Jedi. Don't worry. I'm just exhausted from taking care of the Queen for the past few days. I'll be all right."

"Have you been sleeping?"

The handmaiden nodded no. Obi-Wan handed Mara to Bail, as he looked Sabé straight in the eye. "Then I command you take leave. You need your rest as well, Sabé. Go."

Sabé glanced at Bail, and then head down the hallway.

"Don't like it, do you?" the woman mocked. "It's not easy to suddenly lose everything that once made you special, is it?" ...

Luke eased his legs over the side of the bed and sat up.... The woman watched him, her right hand dropping to her lap to rest on top of her blaster.

"If the purpose of all this activity is to impress me with your remarkable powers of recuperation," she offered, "You don't need to bother."

(Luke) looked her hard in the in the eye, wondering if she would flinch away from his gaze. She didn't even twitch. "Don't tell me; let me guess. You're Mara Jade."

**

Obi-Wan Kenobi opened his eyes', shaking off the feeling. There was something about the vision; the other man was that seemed familiar to him.... He glanced at his sleeping wife. Five months ago, his daughter, Mara Jade was born and now, still living in Alderaan's palace, under close supervision of Bail Organa, things were starting to look and feel normal. Amidala and his baby were healthy, despite the harsh delivery months before. Amidala was worn, weak --- when he saw her, she almost looked like a ghost. But with Sabé’s help and support, she grew strong again but at times when he'd watch her, he'd still worry. Mara was strong. Barely even a year old and already she was exhibiting a strong link with the Force. Obi-Wan noticed it immediately after she was born. Caring and loving Mara, brought light back into his life. After Anakin turned, Obi-Wan shunned the idea of loving anybody else. Amidala helped him through and he was grateful to her for that.

Now, despite the darkness around them, he was whole again. He realized it would be a long time until the galaxy would know peace again, but already he was experiencing what peace was like. Mara turned her head, smiling up at her father. Obi-Wan smiled back as Amidala woke up from her rest, smiling at the two.

"You two look beautiful together." She whispered.

Obi-Wan glanced at his wife and smiled back. "Mara's so beautiful, I don't think I could ever give her up."

Amidala raised her elbow, resting her head on it and sighed, staring at her little girl. "But we have too, Obi-Wan. We can't keep her. Vadar, he'll be looking for us and since Anakin loved me, and felt a strong connection towards me, he most likely knows about Mara. We can't put her life in danger because of me."

He nodded no, "Because of us, Ami. We're in this together. There is no one person."

She smiled wearily as Mara crawled into her mother's arms and began to play with her brown curls. "I keep forgetting. I'm sorry."

The Jedi looked down, grabbing hold of her free hand and smiled. "We don't have to make a decision right away, you know."

"I know, but we have to...for Mara."

**

Amidala and Obi-Wan jumped up once they heard a harsh yell from across the hall. Amidala grabbed Mara as Obi-Wan rushed to the door, unleashing his lightsaber. Mara remained quiet in her mother's arms as she walked behind Obi-Wan. He trailed the scream, finally entering Sabé’s apartment. The handmaiden was on the bed, shrieking violent spasms.

Obi-Wan nodded to her as she handed Mara to her father and went to her friend's side. "Sabé, what's wrong? Sabé?"

**

Hours later, Bail Organa reached the apartment, flanked by a single handmaiden. Entering the room, he saw Obi-Wan standing off to the side holding Mara while Amidala comforted her friend. She saw Bail and nodded to him, standing up. Sabé sat in bed, staring blankly at the carpet while she saw to Bail.

"What's happened? Was Sabé attacked or something?"

"No, she wasn't attacked. She's pregnant.... 5 months in fact. It turns out, the reason why she volunteered to act as a decoy was to think things over by herself and what the future of her child would be. She was scared as we were and if caught, even willing to die." Amidala paused, glancing at her husband and sighed. "And we thought we had problems."

Bail sighed, glancing at Sabé. She met his gaze and he continued. "Who's the father? Does she know?"

Amidala looked down, as all eyes focused on the former Queen. "Yes, she knows. It's him, Palpatine.... Only he doesn't know. At least she doesn't think he knows."

Organa dropped onto a chair, rubbing his chin with his left hand. "And I thought all our troubles were over. Now, we have to worry about putting Sabé into hiding, as well as you, your highness." His said, referring to Amidala.

"It's what we must do, Bail, for us and the rest of the Galaxy." She replied, gazing at Mara and Obi-Wan.

**

Obi-Wan stood back, quietly watching his wife say good bye before he, his daughter and Bail would travel to Ithor with a handmaiden, to care for her, then take young Luke, Sabé’s son to Tatooine, whom would also be cared for by a handmaiden. Tatooine. It was the same planet where Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan's former Master find a young Anakin Skywalker. Both women shared tears about losing their only hope, both mourned the idea that they might never see them again someday and maybe see their grand children. If it were another time and place, this display wouldn't have to take place. He huffed, nodding to Bail and the handmaiden, Fia.

Amidala kissed Mara's head before glancing up at her husband, trying to fight back the tears. Fia stood before the Queen, bowing slightly, then held out her arms as she handed Fia the child. "We will always love you, Mara. Don't ever forget that. Never forget who you are and where you came from. Never forget." She whispered to the child, as another handmaiden, Onissa, and Sabé, Luke' mother confronted Amidala. Sabé grasped her hand, smiling bravely, as Onissa held Luke in her arms. The two handmaidens' head on board, carrying both children in their arms followed by Bail Organa and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Obi-Wan stopped briefly before Amidala and hugged her.

"I promise. I'll look after both of them. You have my word."

She sniffed, "I know you will."

Obi-Wan backed away and nodded to Sabé. "May the Force be with you, Jedi Kenobi."

He smiled at them both before walking up the ramp. He stopped by the door, pressing the button that closed the ramp.

**
Obi-Wan felt the jolt as he reached the cockpit, where Bail was trying to fight off tag-alongs. They were small, but possessed immense firepower. TIE-fighters. Obi-Wan dropped into the co-pilot chair, targeting the fighters. Another jolt. The Jedi tapped his COM, "Handmaiden, are the children all right?"

Fia answered. "Yes. They're just scared."

Bail grunted, nodding his head in agreement. "So, are we."

"Does this ship have light speed? Weaponry defense?"

He nodded no. "Light speed we have, but weaponry, it doesn't have. We'll have to out run them." Bail stood up, calculating the jump to light speed while Obi-Wan continued to fire on the enemy fighters. He shot down two, but more were coming to intercept, followed by three more. "Oh, great, just what we needed...more company."

"Not for long." Bail answered, sitting back in his chair. The man pulled back as lever, pulling them into Hyperspace as a fighter just missed them and hit only space.

**

Obi-Wan Kenobi slumped back in his chair as Bail set the coordinates towards Ithor, Mara's new home. Mara. He didn't really want to say good-bye to her. She was his child, his flesh, his blood, and now, after barely knowing her, after loving her for so long, he was going to let her go. He hated the idea, but for the time, it was the only good idea. He glanced at Bail before heading on back to see Mara and Luke.

Luke and Mara. The two names fit together. He nodded. They were just children. The possibility that they'd actually find one another some day and become lovers was impossible. No one ever stays in touch too long, to be that close, much less two babies that would barely remember each other. Mara had a keen sense, strong connection to the Force, as he was sure, Luke had as well, from his father, Palpatine - but linking together wasn't likely or was it?

Obi-Wan smiled at Fia and Onissa as he entered the rec. Room. His smile widened when he noticed Mara on the floor, playing with young Luke. They were playing hide and seek. Mara had her eyes closed while Luke hid under the table the two handmaidens' were sitting at. Obi-Wan bent down next to his little girl and kissed her. The girl opened her eyes, searching for Luke. She saw her father and quickly kissed his cheek before seeking Luke out. The boy glanced at Mara and she cheered once she noticed him and ran to tag him, causing a scowl on the boys' face.

Mara laughed, putting her foot down to show authority. She raised her chubby arms and placed her hands on her waist. Luke only rolled his eyes before closing them and started to count. When he didn't hear Mara's feet patter to somewhere else, he opened his eyes again to see Obi-Wan talking to his daughter. She sat in his lap, smiling at him. He saw his lips moving but couldn't hear what they were talking about. Mara nodded again, glancing at Fia and Luke. The young girl got up from her father's lap and went to stand next to Fia's chair.

In turn, Fia stood up and talked quietly with the former Jedi Master. Mara stood behind one of the table legs, looking at them both...mainly her father and her caretaker. She realized she'd never see her father again after this trip because things were not good and needed to settle down before she could return to his arms and her mothers'. She loved them both so much and held high hope that one day, she'd feel that love again....
