One twin found one twin lost.

So here is the next chapter. hope you enjoy. little side note, though Xander mentioned being a fixed point in time, he isn't unkillable, he just doesn't age.

I own nothing.

Very special thanks to Johnny Napalm for beta services.

Thena studies the boy. He is young, overconfident. He will probably get them all killed.

The four of them plus the droids were making their way to Obi-Wan’s home. It seemed the astromech had a message for the old general. Thena cast a look Xander’s way as the boy motormouths on. She hadn't heard this much talking since the days she considered Anakin a friend. Anger flashes through her mind at brushing up against that old wound.

It isn't long before they find their way to Obi-Wan’s home. They have barely seated themselves when the droid begins his message. They watch as a beautiful woman asks for Kenobi’s help. They all immediately realize who she is. Princess Leia Organa, she was meant to be safe. How had she joined the rebellion without either her or Xander knowing?

Thena and Xander leave the small home as Obi-Wan talks to Luke. They know he hopes to convince the boy to accompany them and their presence won't help.

Thena looks out over the desert. Xander sits on the ground next to her. He pulls his blaster out to clean it, then stops.

“Can’t even go outside to clean your weapons on this blasted world…I’m going to have sand EVERYWHERE for days,” he complains as he looks over the carbon-scoring, and wear of the hard-used weapon. Both of them had stopped regularly carrying force-lances after the fall; they looked too much like lightsabers and drew too much attention. It was too bad… force-lances required much less maintenance than the cumbersome blasters of this part of the galaxy.

"How did we not know she was a rebel?" Athena asks.

Xander looks up. "You know how Mon Mothma operates; we didn't need to know in her eyes. It's not like she knew our connection," he says.

"We should have been close enough to help her."

"She won't be dead. She knows too much, we have time to get to her," replies Xander holstering his weapon. Getting to his feet, he pulls Thena into an embrace.

Obi-wan and Luke burst out of the house startling Xander and Thena. Xander’s weapon is in his hand before he realizes there is no threat.

"What's happened," he asks Kenobi.
