Author's Note: I know that I haven't been writing in a while, but between losing my computer and working, I just haven't had the time. On top of that, I lost all of my stories because I move several times in the last few years. I am back and am going to try to work on some of my stories. This story has been going around my head for a while now so I want to try it out. See what you think.

How It All Starts
All she had ever wanted was to be normal, but her life obviously wasn't her own. Someone else was pulling the strings, and she wanted to know who it was. One minute she was walking down the street of her home town and the next she was in the middle of a forest. She had to have gone through some sort of portal that she had not noticed during her walk. Now all she needed to know was why she was here. She had spent the entire day walking through this forest looking for some sort of human life. So far she had found no sign of life, except for the forest life itself. She was tired and needed to sleep, but she was a little worried about what was in the forest that would consider her their dinner. Finally after another hour of walking, she finally decided that she needed to sleep. She found a tree to sit down and lean against while she slept. Unknown to her, she was about to find out the reason she was brought to this planet.
“Welcome Young One.” A gentleman with a beard and mustache. His hair was long and brown.
“Where am I?”
“You are in a dream.” Another gentleman with a beard and mustache. Only this one was gray.
“Why am I here?”
“Learn you are here for.” This time it was a creature that was green and small.
“To become a Jedi of course.” This gentleman was young and was the only one that did not look to be that old.
“What's a Jedi?”
“The Jedi use a power called the Force to help them fight the forces of evil.” The first guy told her.
“Look that's great and all, but I don't want to fight the forces of evil anymore. I just want a normal life.”
“You're not here to fight the forces of evil unless you want to, you're here to help someone before they turn evil. If that happens, than nobody will be able to stop him. He is the most powerful Jedi to have been born in this galaxy. The problem is when he gives his heart to someone, he gives it to them fully. Even if he was not meant to be with them. The biggest problem right now is that someone who has turned to the dark side is going to be coming back into his life. She needs to be stopped before she turns him.” The person who spoke this time was a woman with red hair. She was beautiful.
“I don't know what I can do. I'm not a Jedi.”
“Not yet, but you will be. You will also be the only one who will be able to sense the one coming, but no one will believe you if you try to tell them that she is evil. You will have to be careful until she reveals her true self.”
“Because you were not meant to leave this galaxy. You were born here but an accident sent you to another galaxy. Your mother met someone shortly after she arrived in the galaxy you were in, and she was married shortly afterward. She knew that she could not get back, and she needed to protect you. She needed help to protect you so she decided to find some one to help. She met the man she married when she crash landed. She was suspicious of everyone she came across, but she just wanted to protect you. She needed to sure that the people she met were not going to hurt you. Once she met the man she married, she knew that he would protect you with his life. That was why she trusted him when they sent you to earth.” The gentleman with the gray hair told her.
“What planet did she crash land on?”
“It was a planet called Phaedos. You know her as Dulcea.”
“I'm not lying. She knew who you were the minute she saw you. She knew that you would be brought back to this galaxy. That is why she allowed your friends to try for the Great Power on Phaedos. She knew that you would need that training to help you when you returned.” She couldn't believe what she was being told.
“Who are you?”
“I am Obi Wan Kenobi. My friends call me Ben. This is Qui-Gon Jinn, Anakin Skywalker, Mara Jade-Skywalker, and Yoda. All of us were Jedi Masters when we were alive. I was also your father in this galaxy. Dulcea and I met after I went into exile to hide from the Emperor. We met on Tattooine after I dropped Anakin's son off at his uncle's place. I was trying to find a place to hide when I first met her. She was the daughter of a moisture farmer with the talent and the ability to become a Jedi. I offered to train her and she agreed. I began training her in the ways of the Jedi. The one thing I never expected was falling in love with her.
“After six months of training her, I finally knew what Anakin had tried to tell me before his walk on the Dark Side of the force. His love for his wife had made him stronger, and it was only the fact that he had to hide it that caused him to follow the Emperor. I did not make that mistake. I married her in a public ceremony and lived with her at her father's moisture farm. When she told me she was pregnant, I was thrilled at the prospect of becoming a father. It wasn't until I connected to you that I knew for a fact that you would be extremely strong I the force.
“I knew that if I could feel you before you were born, the emperor and Anakin would be able to feel you after you were born. I needed to protect you and Luke. The only way to do that would be to make sure you were somewhere that Anakin couldn't sense you, so I sent Dulcea to Yoda. She never made it though. Something went wrong with the ships engine and she ended up in the galaxy where you grew up. She wanted to keep you safe, so she never revealed where she was from. She stayed on the planet and was cursed to live there forever by the evil ones that live there. Her husband in that galaxy knew people that could keep you hidden.
“They sent you to the planet that you grew up on, and they also sent you years into the future. In that galaxy 10,000 years have past, but here only 30 years have past. We brought you back because you are needed to prevent our worst fears from becoming truth.”
“What needs to be done?”
“You need to be trained as a Jedi if you are going to help keep Luke from turning to the Dark Side.” She looked at Qui-Gon like he was nuts.
“Once trained only you will be strong enough to stop my son if he turns to the Dark Side. It has also been seen that you can keep him from turning to the Dark Side in the first place. You just need to be involved with his life before she arrives. If you are not, than you will be our last hope in stopping him.”
“Again I ask why me?”
“Because you were meant to be with him, but because of my need to protect you, you were not able to get to know Luke while you were growing up. If you had been around, both of you would have been trained by your mother and myself. You would have been close to each other all your lives, instead of trying to earn his trust before she shows up.”
“And how am I suppose to earn his trust?”
“By starting with the truth. We will leave part of this conversation in your mind, but most of it will be erased. The biggest part of what will remain will be the message that I am going to give you to tell him. The next one will be to tell him that you are Ben's daughter. You will have to prove it to him, and we will give you the means to do that after you finish your training.”
“Fine. When do we start training?”
“Now. Training you must do now. Start Obi-Wan will. Different training Mara will. Qui-Gon train next. Train I will after. Finally, train Anakin will.”
“I can't believe that I understood all of that, but I did. What are we going to start with and how long will it take.”
“The training will take 3 days in the real world. During that time you will remain here. While you are here you will be protected by those you would least expect.” Obi-Wan said to her.
“Wait a minute. You're telling me that I am going to be unconscious for 3 days, and that I am going to be protected the entire time. How are you going to accomplish that?”
“My grandson will lead Luke to you. Than they will take you back to the academy, but until that happens the creatures of the forest will protect you from everyone but my grandson and son.”
“Grandson? I thought you said that I was here to help your son before one of his exes showed up. How can he have a son?”
“Luke and I were married before one of that witch's followers killed me. That was only a few months ago. It's also the reason that Luke is so vulnerable right now. She knew that if I wasn't around than he would be hers for the taking. That's why we needed to bring you here now. With you here she won't be able to get to him to easily. The minute you wake up, the two of you will be drawn to each other, but you will both fight the attraction. You have both been hurt too many times for you not to fight it,but don't worry you will not remember this conversation. Now are you ready to begin training?”
“Yeah I'm ready.”
“Come on Daddy. This way.”
“Where are we going Ben?”
“There's something that we need to find over here. I can feel it.”
“Kyp? What is it?”
“There's a woman over here. It looks like she unconscious Master.”
“Why didn't you bring her back to the academy?”
“We tried, but we couldn't get to her.”
“What are you talking about? You're Jedi's. You should have been able to reach her no matter where she was.”
“The creatures of the forest wouldn't let us near her.” Luke shook his head trying to figure out what Kyp was trying to tell him.
“What do the creatures of the forest have to do with the woman Kyp?”
“They're protecting her. It's really weird Master.”
“Let's go take a look.” Luke and Ben followed Kyp to a clearing not to far away. There leaning against a tree had to be the most beautiful woman that Luke had ever seen. Even h”is sister didn't compare to this woman. Luke shook his head. He had to remember that he had just lost his wife.
“Angel.” Ben seemed to be awed by this woman.
“She's an angel.” Luke watched as Ben started heading toward the tree that she was leaning against. Luke felt as though he couldn't move. He noticed that the students that Kyp had been teaching couldn't move to stop Ben either.
“Ben don't move.”
“Why daddy?” Luke watched as the creatures of the forest looked at his son and moved out of his way. “Thank you. The angel is safe now.” Luke couldn't believe that the creatures just looked at Ben and moved out of his way. The minute that Ben touched her face the creatures took off to their hiding spaces, and Luke and his students were able to move again. Luke ran over to Ben and picked him up.
“Ben why did you do that? That was a very dangerous thing to do. Those creatures could have hurt you.”
“Uh uh . They were waiting for me to come. They knew that she was the angel I asked for had come to help us.” Ben wiggled around so much that Luke had to put him down.
“What are you talking about Ben? What angel? Who did you ask to bring an angel here?”
“We needed an angel to come and help us, so I asked mommy and grandpa to bring her here. Grandpa said not to worry because someone named Obi-Wan and Yoda were going to bring the angel here.” Ben was next to the woman on the ground again.
“When did you talk to your mom and grandpa Ben?”
“I don't member. I know that Aunt Leia and Uncle Han were still here after mommy died. Mommy had come to say goodnight to me and I asked her to send an angel. Grandpa showed up and told me not to worry because one was on the way.” Luke shook his head at what his son had just told him. He needed time to figure everything out, but first they needed to get this woman back to the academy so they could figure out what was wrong with her.
“We'll talk about this later Ben, but first we need to get her back to the academy. Kyp can you head back to the academy with your students and take Ben with you. I'm going to take Ben's angel back ahead of you guys.”
“Sure Master, but we could probably go get a transport to take her back.”
“No it would take to long, and I want to get her back to the academy as quickly as possible.” Kyp nodded at Luke as he picked the strange woman up. Luke couldn't explain it but something about this woman was drawing him to her. Luke looked at his son and students one last time and headed toward the academy at a run.
Luke made it back to the academy in record time. He wanted to drop her off at the infirmary and go to his room to meditate. Being so close to this woman was driving him crazy. He had to get away from her to try to understand what was going on with him. He needed to get his head on straight. Luke walked into the infirmary and laid her on the nearest table. He than called the doctor over to help her. Luke left instructions with the doctor to call him if there was any change with her, and than he left to go meditate.
She couldn't believe how much they had taught her while she had been here. She had been told that it had only been a day and a half in the real world and she was almost done with her training as a Jedi. It seemed to come naturally to her. The hardest part of her training was when she was with Mara. Yoda wasn't kidding when he said her training would be different from the rest of the Masters she was studying with, Mara's lessons included the history of the galaxy she was now in.
She was also learning everything she could about the academy that Luke had set up years ago. It was hard, but if she was going to be a master at the academy than she needed to know all of this before she was finished with the rest of her training. During her free times like this she would think back to her times on Earth. She knew that her mother's 2nd husband had made sure that she was safe, but she was having a hard time trying to figure out who he was. It was though those times had been erased from her memory, but she knew that they weren't. That's when it dawned on her. Her memories weren't being erased, they were being blocked. She shook her head and went back to training. She needed to get away from the 5 Master Jedi's before she went crazy.
“Are you ready to continue?”
“Yeah. I've got nothing better to do since my other memories are being blocked.” She stared at Mara accusingly.
“That was not my idea. A few of them thought that you would be more receptive if you couldn't remember your past. It will come back to you when you wake up.”
“Alright I'll give you a break for the blocked memories, but that doesn't mean you are let off the hook totally. Let's just get back to training.”
“Sure.” Mara sat down in front of her. Together they held hands and closed their eyes. Opening her mind she let Mara enter her head to show her more of the things she needed to know to survive in this galaxy. This was why her training was so difficult. It exhausted her more than the actual Jedi training. Thankfully she was almost done with it.
Another day had past in the real world when she finally finished the training with Mara, but she was finally done. She knew everything about this galaxy that she was going to be living in. She even knew how to fly any type of ship that she was put in front of. Of course her training from being a Power Ranger hadn't hurt in learning that part of the training. Now it was back to her training as a Jedi. She had already gone through the training with Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, and Yoda. Now she was finished training with Mara, so that only left Anakin to train with. She had a feeling that even though Mara's had been the most difficult, Anakin's was going to be the most dangerous.
“Alright Anakin, what am I going to be learning now?”
“On Earth you learned to harness your emotions to give you the strength you needed to win, but that can be dangerous as a Jedi. Anger, Fear, Hatred are emotions that can lead you down the path to the Dark Side of the Force. They're easier to grab on to but harder to let go of.”
“That's not going to be a problem for me.”
“I know. We've all watched you grow up on Earth. The only time you were turned evil was when you were fed to the volcano, but you were the first one turned back. Ever since then, no amount of evil has been able to turn you, but this training isn't about you, it's about Luke. If Luke turns, you may have to destroy him. I would prefer you not having to do that, but it will be possible. Like Mara's training, this will be all mental. The only difference is that I won't be going into your mind, you'll be going into mine. You will see how I became a Sith Lord and everything I learned after that. You'll also see how Luke turned me back to the Light Side of the Force.”
“And if I don't want to?”
“Than you will stay here until you do. That can endanger everyone in the galaxy. This isn't a choice. You need to know this so that you have a chance if Luke is turned. Leia and Han won't be able to save Luke this time, and Ben will go with his father which will turn him to the Dark Side as well. This will help you to understand what you will see before you go. You will see two futures. One where Luke fights for the side of good and one where he has joined the Dark Side.”
“Alright let's get this done than.” Anakin nodded and sat in front of her. He held his hands out palm side up. She placed her hands on his and cleared her mind. Slowly she reached into his mind. What she saw shocked her.
She saw Anakin grow up on the planet Tattooine as a slave. She saw Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan save him. What shocked her was the anger she felt from that 9 year old boy when he walked away with Qui-Gon without his mother. No 9 year old should know that much anger. She watched as he fell more in love with Padme on their trip to Coruscant. She saw his training with Obi-Wan for the next 9 years. She felt the love that he felt for Padme when they met up again. The wedding was beautiful.
What she saw and felt next scared her more than anything else had in the entire 30 years of her life. She felt the anger over his mother's death. She also saw him kill an entire tribe of people because of that death. She could see that for awhile he was fine because of Padme, but even his love for her wasn't enough to keep the fear and anger away for long. His dreams of her dying were beginning to bring both emotions to the front of his mind.
She felt something that Anakin hadn't felt at the time. She felt someone feeding him those dreams. She knew that it was the Emperor that was feeding him that fear. She saw him slaughter thousands of young children because the emperor told him to. The fight between Anakin and Obi-Wan reminded her of the fight between Jason and Tommy all those years ago. She saw what had happened to Anakin after the fight. She also saw what the Emperor had told Anakin after he had awoken in the suit the Emperor had made for him.
The Emperor had lied to him about killing Padme. She saw how it had killed a part of his humanity to learn that he was the cause of her death. What came next had her breathing increasing by the second. She watched as Anakin learned the ways of the Sith. He even went behind the Emperor's back and learned everything he could that the Emperor didn't want him to know. Anakin knew that the Emperor wouldn't train him in everything, so he learned it himself. He also knew that one day he would defeat the Emperor because he had seen it in a vision.
She watched as the handsomest man she had ever seen fight Anakin and survive several times. She saw the final battle between the two of them and the Emperor. Anakin had saved his son's life by picking up the Emperor and throwing him into the core of the machine that they had called a Death Star. The part that had her in tears was when Anakin's son had taken his body back to the mood and burned it on a funeral pyre. She was shaking by the time that she saw Obi-Wan, Yoda, and Anakin looking proudly at Luke at the celebrations that were being held on Endor.
Anakin watched as she collapsed from witnessing his memories. The woman was stronger than he gave her credit for. When Yoda had told him what he wanted to show her, he didn't think she could handle it all at one time. He was glad he was wrong. He knew that this woman was his son's soul mate. She was the only woman that was as strong in the Force as Luke was. Only she could keep him on the Light Side, or defeat him if he joined the Dark Side. Anakin let her rest while he went to tell the others that she was finished training. The final step to her training would be the visions of the future that they had all seen.
She woke up from the nightmare that was Anakin's life a couple of hours later. She was surprised that she had collapsed at all. Not even her lessons with Mara had cause her to collapse into unconsciousness. he stood up slowly. She was still shaking from Anakin's memories of his life. She had seen what Anakin's life had been like, but she also knew what it would have been like if things had been different for him and Padme. The rules of the Jedi were what had turned him to the Dark Side of the Force, not his love for his wife and children. She felt Obi-Wan approach her and turned to meet him.
“I'm glad you're awake. It's time for your final lesson.”
“Please tell me I'm not going to have to go through that again.”
“No you won't have to go through that again, but it is time to see what the future will be like if you succeed or fail. This lesson will be through the Force itself. Come.” He led her to where the others were waiting for her.
“The Force look at you must.” Yoda stood next to Qui-Gon with a smile on his face.
“Go on Young One. Concentrate on the Force and you will see what you need to see before you are to return to your body.” She slowed her breathing and concentrated on the Force.
It wasn't long before a picture began to form. She watched as a woman landed on the planet that the academy was on. She saw the man from Anakin's memories go out to meet her. They grew closer as time went on. She began to tell him that she had learned more about the Jedi way. She would tell him everything and he would put it into his daily routine. She watched as he went from a Jedi to a Sith Lord. He took her word at face value. He even pulled away from his sister and her husband. Soon he became the worst type of evil that had ever been known in this galaxy.
He destroyed everything that he touched. His son followed in his footsteps. When his son was old enough, they banded together and destroyed the one that had turned him in the first place. They also destroyed their own family to keep anyone from being stronger than they were. They ruled the galaxy with an iron fist and the Force. They murdered anyone who stood in their way of total domination. It was when she saw his son take someone by force that she broke the connection with the Force. She couldn't see anymore for it hurt to see what the two of them could do if they were turned evil.
“It's not a pretty picture of the future if you don't go or you fail. Concentrate on the Force again. This time see yourself in the picture months before she shows up on Yavin 4.”
Taking Obi-Wan's advise, she concentrated on the Force again, but this time she added herself to the picture. This time she saw the man talking to her as she sat on the temple as the light turned from orange to dark blue as night set in. They sat there talking about something. She saw the both of them smiling at something that had been said. She watched as the two of them grew closer over the next few months.
Then she arrived. Again he went out to meet her. Again she told him that she had discovered more teachings in the ways of the force, only this time he wasn't so eager to learn. He wasn't so eager to get close to her. This confused her until she saw his son talking to someone she didn't know. The scene switched to further into the future. The evil had been defeated and she was again on the roof of the temple. He came out to join her. She watched as he put his arms around her waist and laid his head on her shoulder. When night had fallen, she turned to look up at him. She gasped when she saw that she was heavy with child. That's when she lost the connection with the Force.
She looked at her teachers with shock on her face. All of them had smiles on their faces. Anakin walked over to her and placed his hands on her shoulders as he looked at her. He kissed her cheek and turned and walked away. Yoda was the next one to come up to her. He motioned for her to lean down. When she was level with him, he also kissed her cheek and went to stand next to Anakin. Qui-Gon did the same as Anakin and Yoda. He came over, kissed her cheek, and went to stand next to Yoda. Mara was next.
“Promise me that you will take care of both of them please.”
“I promise.” Mara hugged her and went to stand next to Qui-Gon. The last one to come to her was Obi-Wan.
“I'm proud of you. Not only are you a Jedi, but you are also a Ninjetti.” Obi-Wan noticed the shock on her face. “Yes you are still a Ninjetti. Your friends were never meant to have the power, but without your Jedi training you were not ready for the full power. When you wake up, both powers will be yours, and they will be in balance. Remember two things, trust your instincts and I love you my daughter.” Obi-Wan stepped back and she felt herself falling. The next thing she knew she was in a room that looked like it was in a hospital or a temple.
