Chapter 5 -o- Fighting in Fire

Padme looked up from the unread book sitting in her lap when she heard Anakin's star ship pull in at their balcony. She dropped the book and ran to meet him. She was surprised to see Master Windu step out of the star ship as well. She walked quickly over to the two of them, reading their faces as she went. They both looked worried.

“What’s happened?” she asked, looking up at Anakin.

“Palpatine has been taken into custody,” Anakin told her and she took a deep breath of relief. But there was something still weighing heavily on them both.

“But?” she asked and Anakin nodded his head.

“But we’ve found where he’s sent his apprentice,” Anakin told her and she looked confused.

“I thought Dooku was his apprentice?” she asked and Windu looked down at her.

“As did we.” He looked very disheartened by something and Padme looked to Anakin.

“It’s Master Kuro,” he told her and she looked shocked. “Though she’s going by Darth Tarul now.”

“What?” Padme asked, shaking her head slightly. “But, I just can’t believe...”

“I know,” Anakin said, nodding his head.

“Are you going to go after her?” she asked and Anakin nodded his head. “And what about Obi-Wan and Elisa?”

“Grievous is dead, Obi-Wan reported back almost ten hours ago. Jarith said they just landed on Mustafar. But he’s tried to comm them and neither one is answering.”

“Are you worried about them?” she asked and Anakin shook his head.

“No, Obi-Wan and Elisa can take on Kuro, I’m confident in their abilities,” Windu said and Anakin agreed.

“We’re going in as back up though,” Anakin told her and she sighed.

“I understand,” she said, taking his hand. “Be careful,” she told him, squeezing his hand. She smiled up at Windu and he nodded his head. They both turned and walked back to the star ship and jumped in. Anakin smiled up at her through the cockpit door and winked. She smiled as they shot off awaAy from the balcony.

-o-o-o-o-o-o-

“You know you’re just a walking contradiction,” Buffy told Tarul as she blocked a blow. “The Jedi must not know anger, but you’re so full to the brim with it I can feel it coming off you in waves.” Buffy blocked another blow then Obi-Wan blocked as Buffy attacked. It had been going on like this for a while. They were farther down the path, and getting closer to the river by the second.

“You’ve broken all the rules,” Tarul told her, bringing her hand up and forcing Obi-Wan back. He landed on his butt about thirty feet away and Tarul continued to attack without mercy. “And you can dare talk to me about contradiction?”

“Yeah, but I broke them because I don’t believe in them. You believe in them so hard it’s turned you to the dark side. What does that say about your precious rules?” Buffy was finding she had to yell over the noise of the lava river. Tarul screeched as she attacked Buffy, blow after blow after blow.

Buffy was beginning to find that Tarul’s fighting ability seemed to sink the angrier she got. She lost focus and her movements became jerky. Buffy felt for Obi-Wan; he had landed behind her and she couldn’t see him. She was a little dismayed to find that while Obi-Wan was alive he didn’t seem to be conscious. Tarul seemed to read something in Buffy’s face because she chuckled nastily and then sneered at Buffy.

“It seems he had a nasty blow to the head,” Tarul gleefully informed her. “He really should be more careful around all this molten lava,” she mocked as she blocked Buffy. Buffy jumped just as Tarul was swinging at her feet and did a flip over her head landing behind her. Buffy had her lightsaber on Tarul’s neck before she could even turn around. From here Buffy could see Obi-Wan lying on the ground a few feet away, his lightsaber a foot away from him.

“Just turn your lightsaber off and we’ll-” Buffy’s words died on her tongue as Obi-Wan seemed to swiftly lift from the ground and fly out over the lava.

“Get away from me,” Tarul said, her voice low and bitter. “I will drop him.” Buffy had no doubt that she would, right into the lava river. Buffy took two large steps away as she began to reach out with all her might, pulling in all her power, touching a part of the force inside her she had yet to need.

Tarul spun away from Buffy. Tarul looked out at Obi-Wan, suspended in mid-air, no more than five feet away from the lava river below. She looked back up at Buffy, her face a mask of deep anger and loathing. She seemed to be thinking something over as she sneered at Buffy.

“I could drop him. Take away everything you’ve ever loved.” She nodded her head as she took another step away from Buffy. “Your poor excuse of Jedi powers are nowhere near strong enough to save him.” She shook her head and then stopped and stared hard at Buffy.

Buffy reached out just as Tarul let go. She willed him to float, like he was on a cloud, willed him to stay in the air. Tarul growled when he did, he floated, limp but alive.

“No!” she cried, glaring at Buffy as she stalked towards her. But Buffy just smiled at her as she took a step back. “You may have saved him, but not for long.” Her lightsaber flashed on at the same time as Buffy’s did. “You can’t fight me and hold him.”

“No,” Buffy agreed, nodding her head. “But then, I don’t have to,” she said, releasing her hold on Obi-Wan. He stayed in the air, floating, seemingly held up by nothing. Tarul growled and spun around, Anakin had his arm out, he was slowly bringing Obi-Wan back to the river bank.

“No!” she yelled, shaking her head. “No, you’re supposed to be dead!”

“Well, I guess your master thought better of himself than he should have,” Anakin said, gently setting Obi-Wan down.

“We have you surrounded Kuro, please-”

“Don’t call me that!” she screeched as she spun around to face Windu. “No, no, no! This is not how this goes!”

She blocked Buffy’s sudden attack from behind and then held out her hand as though to force push her, but Buffy beat her to it. Tarul went flying, landing about five feet away, and at the feet of Windu. Her lightsaber landed a few feet away from her; she reached out for it, but midair Windu sliced it in half. It fell to the ground in two pieces.

“It’s over Tarul,” Windu said, looking down at her, his face a mask of indifference.

-o-o-o-o-o-o-

“Hey there,” Buffy said, looking down at Obi-Wan as his eyes blinked open. “How you feeling?”

“Like I was run over by a herd of banthas,” he said, rubbing his head then wincing.

“Yeah, you took quite a bump to the head,” Buffy told him, taking his hand in hers. “I think something must have popped out of the river and hit you in the head, you have a nasty burn there too.”

“Kuro?” Obi-Wan asked as though he’d suddenly remembered why they’d been there.

“Windu and Anakin took her away,” she told him, smiling up at him. “We were very lucky they showed up when they did.”

“Why?” Obi-Wan asked, sitting up a little further. Someone cleared his throat from behind them and Buffy turned around.

“We’re all ready to take off,” Jarith told them and Buffy nodded her head, smiling. She turned back to Obi-Wan and kissed him softly on the cheek.

“Wait here, I’ll be back in a few minutes. And I’ll tell you everything that happened,” Buffy told him. He nodded his head and she walked away with Jarith.

-o-o-o-o-o-

“How’s he doing?” Jarith asked as they walked into the cockpit.

“He’ll be fine,” Buffy told him, sitting down and looking out the cockpit window at the lava river one more time. “I can’t tell you how happy I’ll be to never see this place again.”

“I can imagine,” Jarith said, nodding his head. He looked over at her but she was staring out at the planet, her eyes fixated on something. “Is there something out there?” he asked, looking too. Buffy shook her head and sat back.

“No, it’s nothing…. I just thought I saw something.” She looked at him and smiled. “Let’s get the hell out of here.” He looked oddly at her and she laughed. “Right, I know, I speak strangely.” Jarith nodded his head as the ship began to rise up off the planet.

Neither of them saw the figure step out of the shadows and watch the ship disappear up into the murky dark clouds of the planet.

-o-o-o-o-o-o-

“How’s your head?” Buffy asked, sitting down next to Obi-Wan. He looked up at her from the datapad in his lap and sighed.

“It’s fine,” Obi-Wan, said smiling up at her.

“Yeah well, it’s lucky for us you’re so hard headed,” she said, running her hand down his cheek.

“Yes, you’re very funny,” Obi-Wan told her, nodding his head with a smirk on his face. “How long until we reach Coruscant?”

“Not too long,” Buffy told him, running her hand through her hair. She sighed and Obi-Wan could hear her apprehension in the sound.

“What’s wrong?” he asked and Buffy shook her head, then sighed again.

“I’m just...it’s nothing,” she said, looking down at him. “Nothing important.”

“It’s weighing hard on your mind Elisa, I can feel it,” he said and she smirked at him. “What’s wrong?”

“I just...there was someone,” she said, looking down at her hands. “There was someone on that planet when we left.” She looked up at him and met his eyes.

“Who?” he asked and she blinked and looked away.

“I’m not sure, not a friend though, that much was clear,” she told him, wishing she had been able to tell who it was.

“Well, Tarul killed all the separatists,” Obi-Wan said and Buffy nodded her agreement. “Who else could it be?”

“I don’t know, there’s that Bounty Hunter that wanted me dead and...” She trailed off and Obi-Wan looked up at her as she looked away from him.

“And what?” he asked and she shook her head.

“Nothing, I’m just worried,” she said, taking his hand and squeezing it. “This is never really going to end. It’s always going to be us out there fighting and-” She stopped and shook her head looking up at him. “Never mind.”

“Elisa-”

“I’m going to go see how close we are,” she said, cutting him off as she stood. “Don’t get up and no wiggling around. You just rest.” She turned and walked towards the doors. They slid open and before she walked through them she turned and smiled at him. Obi-Wan was a little concerned by the sadness behind the smile.

“I love you,” she said, stepping through the doors. They slid shut before Obi-Wan could respond, leaving him staring at the closed doors.

“I love you too,” he said, though he knew she couldn’t hear him.

-o-o-o-o-o-o-

Two days later Buffy was walking down a hall, her mind in a million different places. Places she never really thought her mind would be. She was half listening to Yoda beside her. She knew he was fully aware that her mind was not fully there, but as of yet he hadn’t said anything about it.

“How fares the new mother to be?” Yoda asked, looking up at Buffy. Buffy looked down at him, pulling herself from her thoughts.

“Padme’s doing well,” she said, smiling as she winced on the inside. “She’s getting bigger by the day. It won’t be too much longer now.” Yoda nodded his head and then smiled at her.

“Speaking of Padme, I was not,” he said and Buffy paled slightly as her eyes went to her flat belly. She reached out and placed her hand on it lightly, then looked back at him.

“Oh,” Buffy said, nodding her head.

“Hiding this from him, you are?” he asked and Buffy sighed. She wasn’t hiding it per se, she just hadn’t told him, and she had her blocks up, and...ok, she was hiding it.

“I just don’t know how to tell him,” she said, shaking her head. “Plus, he’s going to be a little upset when he finds out how long I’ve known.”

“How long?” Yoda asked, looking up at her.

“Since we left Utapau. I was feeling it before then, but I didn’t know what it was I was feeling.” Buffy shook her head and sighed. “He needed me, and if I told him-”

“Stopped you from fighting, he would have?” Yoda asked and Buffy nodded her head.

“Yeah.” She took a deep breath.

“Tell him you must,” Yoda told her and she sighed.

“I know.”

-o-o-o-o-

“Elisa.” Obi-Wan looked up from the datapad when she walked in. At once he could tell that something was wrong. She looked as though the world could fall out from under her feet at any moment. “How did your talk with Master Yoda go?”

“Ok,” she said and walked straight to him. He looked up at her from his seat, a worried look on his face.

“Is everything alright?” he asked and she sat down on the table behind her.

“I’m not sure,” she told him, keeping herself away from him. She was so worried about this, what if he wasn’t ready? Of course she wasn’t really sure she was ready, so he’d be in about the same place as her. “You know that I would never put myself, or someone I loved in danger, right?”

“Of course,” he said, nodding his head, even more worried when she pulled back from his touch. She had been a little standoffish ever since they got back from Mustafar. Something was bothering her, and she wouldn’t talk to him about it. He hoped she was going to tell him what was going on. He didn’t think he could take one more day of those sad eyes.

“Ok,” she said, nodding her head. As she spoke Buffy carefully began to take down all the blocks and walls she had built up around herself over the last few days. She reached over and took his hand into hers, running her thumb over his hand.

“How do I feel?” she asked and he looked confused. “Reach out to me, Obi-Wan, how do I feel?” He nodded his head and closed his eyes and let his mind drift into hers. He reached out to her through the force. It only took a second then abruptly he pulled back as his eyes popped open; there was a shocked smile on his face.

“Are you...” He trailed off and she nodded her head as her eyes began to tear up. After a moment confusion clouded his face. “What was all that about not hurting someone you loved, I don’t...” He trailed off again as he began to understand. “How long have you known?”

“Since we left Utapau,” Buffy said, looking up to meet his eyes. “I couldn’t let you go into that alone.” He nodded his head and Buffy took a deep breath. “Are you mad?”

“No,” Obi-Wan said, shaking his head. And Buffy could see it in his eyes, he really wasn’t. “I know you can take care of yourself, as I’ve seen many times. You saved my life there. No I’m not mad.” He stood up and then reached down and pulled her up too.

“We’re going to have a baby,” he told her, his face alight with happiness.

“I know,” Buffy said, smiling as he pulled her close to him.

“I’m going to be a father,” he said, pulling her away so he could look at her. “And you’re going to be a mother.”

“I know,” Buffy said, laughing a little now. “We’re going to be parents.”

Obi-Wan looked down at her stomach and back up at her face. He looked worried suddenly. Buffy smiled at him and ran her hand down his face.

“What is it?” she asked and he looked up into her eyes.

“Wait,” he said, taking her by the shoulders and helping her sit down on the couch. “Just...wait,” he said before he turned and quickly walked back to their room. Buffy waited and he came back a moment later with a goofy grin on his face and something in his hand. He dropped to one knee in front of her and Buffy blinked.

“The day you dropped into my life was the best day of my life,” Obi-Wan said, placing the small box on her knee. “Finding you, helping you, falling in love with you, it was all meant to be, the will of the force. I believe it more every day.” He reached over and pulled the lid off the box. Inside, nestled on soft white fluff was a ring, a simple silver ring with a dark blue stone that glinted in the light. “Marry me?”

Buffy stared at the ring sitting on her knee. He had it, even before he knew about the baby, which meant he’d planned on asking her already. Buffy looked up into his eyes as she reached out and gently lifted the ring from the box. She slid it onto her figure, it fit perfectly. She grinned at him as she nodded her head. He stood up and she jumped into his arms holding him close.

“I love you,” she whispered into his ear as she hugged him.

“I love you too,” Obi-Wan said, pulling her back so he could look at her. “More than you’ll ever know.”

-o-o-o-o-o-

She knew it was a waste of time, but she really couldn’t help herself. She moved it this way and that, smiling when it caught the light and shimmered. She looked up at the chuckle and smiled at Obi-Wan.

“What’re you doing?” he asked, a smirk in his voice.

“Nothing,” she said, pulling her hand out of the light. She loved to look at her ring, it was just so perfect. He nodded his head as he walked over to her and sat down.

“I was talking to Master Yoda today and-” He stopped and her eyes went wide.

“I felt it too,” she said, nodding her head as they both stood.

“It’s Padme,” Obi-Wan said and Buffy nodded her head, a huge smile on her face. Obi-Wan looked down and pulled off his comm as it beeped.

“Obi-Wan it’s-”

“We know Anakin, we’re on our way,” Obi-Wan said and Anakin nodded then blinked out. Buffy reached over and took Obi-Wan’s hand.

“Come on,” Buffy said, pulling him towards the door. “I don’t want to miss it.”

-o-o-o-

Buffy sat with her hands folded in her lap, a smile on her face as they waited. She knew they were in for a surprise, but she wasn’t going to tell them that. Anakin had come out twice now to inform them of the goings on inside the room.

“What are you smiling about?” Obi-Wan asked her after Anakin rushed back into the room again. She looked up at him and her smile grew.

“Nothing,” she said innocently, shaking her head. She leaned over and rested her head on his shoulder and he smiled.

“That’s going to be us soon,” Obi-Wan said and Buffy nodded her head.

“Nervous?” Buffy asked and Obi-Wan laughed.

“A little,” he told her and she leaned away and looked up at him. “It’s just, I never even thought about it. Being a Jedi, it just wasn’t something I was ever going to have.”

“I know what you mean,” Buffy said, nodding her head as she took his hand. “I never thought I’d make it past 21, let alone have kids and a husband.”

“Well, I guess your PTB’s knew what they were doing then,” he said and she smirked at him.

“This time I’d have to agree with you,” Buffy said, nodding her head. She put her head back on his shoulder and laid her hand on her belly.

Almost an hour later Anakin came walking out. He had a smile that lit up his whole face as he walked towards them and the number of other people who had shown up to welcome the new baby into the world. Anakin went straight to Obi-Wan though, as if no one else was there, and smiled at him.

“She’d like to see you,” he said, looking from Obi-Wan to Buffy and back again. “She’d like to see both of you.”

Obi-Wan nodded and he pulled Buffy up from her seat as Anakin lead them both back. Buffy gripped Obi-Wan’s hand as they walked into Padme’s little room. Obi-Wan stopped short when he saw Padme on the bed, two little bundles in her arms.

“Two?” Obi-Wan asked, looking over at Anakin who nodded his head, a proud smile on his face. Buffy walked right over to Padme and sat down on the edge of her bed. She looked down at the babies and smiled.

“What are their names?” she asked after a moment.

“Luke,” Padme said, looking down at the little bundle in her right arm. “And Leia Skywalker,” she said, looking down at the other little bundle.

“They’re perfect,” Buffy said, smiling at her. She reached out and brushed some of Padme’s hair out of her face.

“Thank you,” Padme said, smiling up at her. She looked down at her two babies; she had a bright smile on her face, though she looked a little worn out.

“May I hold him?” Buffy asked, reaching out for Luke. Padme nodded her head and helped Buffy take Luke. As soon as the baby was settled into her arms Buffy felt it. It felt almost like an electric shock, then a tingle all up and down her body. Luke’s little eyes popped open and he looked up at her, he’d felt it too.

“Wow,” Buffy said as her head swam a little.

“What?” Padme and Obi-Wan said at the same time.

“There was this, shock, and tingling feeling when I picked up Luke and-” She stopped at the identical looks of shock on Obi-Wan and Anakin’s faces. “What?”

“Some Jedi, though very few, bond with their Padawans as soon as they’re brought to the Temple and they hold them. It doesn’t happen very often, because, well the masters don’t hold every new youngling that comes in,” Obi-Wan told her and she looked down at Luke. So he was to be her Padawan then? She smiled at him and nestled his cheek. She was sure she could live with that.

“Well of all the people to train him, I’m glad it’ll be you,” Anakin said and Buffy beamed up at him.

“Thank you,” she said, rocking Luke slowly.

“What about Leia?” Padme asked smiling down at her daughter.

“I don’t know, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.” Anakin said walking closer to the bed with Obi-Wan right behind him. Obi-Wan looked over Buffy’s shoulder at Luke and smiled.

“Trust you to do the really unheard of thing,” he teased and she shrugged lightly.

“Well, you know how I am,” she said, looking over her shoulder at him. “I can’t do anything the easy way.”

-o-o-o-o-o-o-

Buffy gently laid her hand on her only-just-starting-to-show belly and sighed in happiness. The long white gown she wore hung to her toes and the train was the longest she had ever seen in her life. She found it amusing that even a galaxy far, far away from earth and she was still wearing white on her wedding day. The small blue ring on her finger caught the light and she smiled down at it.

“Daydreaming, love?” Obi-Wan asked and Buffy yelped as she turned around.

“You can’t see me-”

“Before the wedding,” Obi-Wan cut her off. He was wearing a blindfold over his eyes.

“Very clever,” Buffy said, walking over to him. She laid her hand on his shoulder and kissed his cheek. He reached out, and without being able to see her, laid his hand on the top of her belly.

“How do you feel?” he asked and Buffy smiled.

“Good,” she said, nodding her head. “The best I’ve ever felt in my whole life.”

“Wonderful,” Obi-Wan said as he pulled her into a hug.

“Shouldn’t you be out there helping?” Buffy asked as she pulled away a little.

“Padme shooed me out a few minutes ago. The blindfold was actually Anakin's idea.” Buffy laughed and nodded her head.

“How’s he handling two little ones without Padme’s help?” Buffy asked then laughed out loud at the picture Obi-Wan sent her way. Anakin was holding a crying Leia while his mother held a crying little Luke.

“They’re going to be quite the handful,” Buffy said and laughed softly. “Though if our little girl takes after her mother we’re in for it a lot worse,” Buffy said, leaning in close and resting her head on his shoulder.

“You’re not so bad, and who says it’s going to be a girl?” Obi-Wan said, kissing her on the cheek. She laughed and nodded her head.

“Me,” she told him and he rolled his eyes and smirked at her. “And mothers know best.”

“Right, of course, how silly of me,” he said, kissing her forehead. “I’d better go see if he needs any help with anything.” He turned to leave but Buffy’s hand was still on his arm.

“Obi-Wan,” Buffy said and he turned back to her. She pulled him towards her, and caught his face with her free hand. She pulled his face down towards her and laid her lips on his softly. She deepened the kiss only slightly before she pulled away, smiling.

“I love you,” Buffy said and he nodded his head slowly, a goofy smile on his face.

“I love you too,” he said. She released his arm and then he turned and walked out the door.

-o-o-o-o-o-

“I know you’re there,” Buffy said without turning around. Yoda had been standing just inside the door for a long while now and Buffy wondered what it was he wanted.

“Ah yes,” Yoda said, walking farther into the room. “Glowing you are.”

“Thank you,” Buffy said, turning from her seat at her vanity. “How is he faring?” Buffy asked, referring to Obi-Wan.

“Very in love the two of you are,” Yoda said and Buffy nodded her head, a smirk on her face. “Nervous he is.” Buffy laughed and then sighed.

“Well that makes two of us,” she told him as he pulled himself up onto the chair next to hers. He made himself comfortable then looked over at her.

“Talked with Padme I have,” he said and Buffy wondered what that meant. “Told me of your earth traditions she did.”

“Did she?” Buffy asked, smirking. “Which one?”

“Your father I am not,” he smiled at her and Buffy nodded. “But offer you my arm to walk you down the aisle I do.” Buffy nodded her head and fought to keep the tears at bay. In her mind she had always pictured Giles walking her down the aisle, had she made it there someday.

“I would love that,” Buffy said, her voice shaky as she nodded her head. “Thank you Yoda.”

“Outside you will meet me?” he asked as he hopped down off the seat. Buffy nodded her head and Yoda smiled at her then turned and walked out of her room. Buffy reached up and wiped away the single tear that had gotten loose. She would not mourn what she did not have, not on her wedding day. She took a deep breath and thought about all she did have, and all she was going to have. Her hand was steady when she picked up the last part of her outfit from the table behind her and strapped it on.

She walked to the door and looked down at Yoda when it slid open. He looked up at her and then to the newest part of her dress and nodded his head. He climbed into his floating chair and held out his arm to Buffy. She took it and smiled at him again.

“Ready are you?” he asked and she nodded her head.

“Let’s go,” she told him as they started down the hall towards her future husband.

Obi-Wan eyes went wide when he saw her walking down the aisle. He was sure, no one, anywhere, had ever looked as beautiful as she did right then. He had to hold back the chuckle at what hung low on her hip. She smiled up at him as Yoda handed her over to him, and Obi-Wan smiled at Yoda then took her hand and smiled down at her.

“Your lightsaber?” he whispered as they made their way towards the new Chancellor.

“Yes,” Buffy said, nodding her head. She smiled even brighter when he pulled back his jacket to reveal his lightsaber as well. ‘Perfect’ Buffy thought, smiling up at him.

-o-o-o-o-o-

“And how are we tonight?” Buffy asked as she picked up the oldest of her godchildren and future Padawan. Luke looked up at her from her arms and blinked then smiled softly.

“Everything was so beautiful,” Padme said, smiling up at Buffy.

“It was, wasn’t it?” she agreed, nodding her head. “I’m so glad we could have it here, at the lake house,” Buffy told her, a happy smile on her face. “It can be a new tradition for our small family.” Padme nodded her head and smiled as Luke began to drift off.

“He’s always so content with you,” Padme noted as Buffy rocked Luke. The wedding party was over and Obi-Wan was saying goodbye to the last of their guests.

“Well, he knows his Aunty Elisa is going to spoil him rotten, until he’s my Padawan, then we’ll have some real fun,” she said, smiling up at Padme. “Leia looks more like you every day Padme, they’re both so beautiful,” Buffy said, running a finger lightly down Leia’s sleeping face.

“Well, we certainly can’t argue with you there,” Anakin said, coming up from behind Buffy. Obi-Wan was right behind him, a tired smile on his face.

“I was hoping to have a walk before bed?” Obi-Wan asked, smiling down at Buffy. She nodded and stood, gently placing Luke in Anakin's waiting hands. Obi-Wan took Buffy’s hand and she smiled and waved goodnight to Padme and Anakin.

“You looked so beautiful today,” he told her and she smiled up at him.

“You were pretty cute yourself,” she replied. Obi-Wan walked them over to a balcony overlooking the water. Buffy recognized the spot, this is where the two of them made their wishes on a falling star, so long ago.

“That night,” Obi-Wan started, looking down at her, almost as if reading her mind, “all I wished for was peace and happiness.” He pulled her hand up and kissed the top of it. “And now I see that I have found so much more.” Buffy laid her head on his shoulder and both their hands went to her belly. “I could never have dreamed to have so much.”

“You make me so happy, Obi-Wan. More so than I ever thought possible.” She pulled back and smiled up at him. Then something caught her eyes and she laughed.

“Make a wish,” she said as another shooting star flew by. What were the odds of that? Obi-Wan looked from the star to her and shook his head.

“I don’t need a wish, everything I could ever want I hold in my arms now.” Buffy let him pull her close to him again. She leaned back and kissed him, a hot welcoming kiss. Obi-Wan pulled back a little after a moment and smirked at her.

“Shall we head to bed?” he asked and Buffy nodded her head.

“Yes, let’s,” she said, knowing that she needed no wish either. She had everything she could ever need now.
