    I can see that you love those prompts and they bring a really good ending for Luke, Leia and their families

    Week #4:

    Prompts:
    Snow sand water heat & clouds.

    ~~~~~~~


    Snow frizzes were cold drinks flavored like fruit or berries. They were refreshing on a hot day. Mirax enjoyed having them, and she didn't know they could be endearing to a gentleman until she caught Corran looking at her.

    "What?"

    "Nothing. You just look ... lovely."

    She laughed. "I'm not doing anything except enjoying this treat."

    She leaned back against the side of the Pulsar Skate, which she'd been tweaking.

    Corran still couldn't take his eyes off her.

    Okay, he had it bad.

    ****

    The soft, white sand was warm under her bare feet. The waves lapped the shore, and the water shone azure in the fading sun.

    Nearby, Luke was building castles with Samira and Serena.

    Mara sighed. Luke made a wonderful, loving daddy.

    And she had to admit, making the babies with him was also a marvelous pastime.

    ;)

    ***

    Luke had learned that water was a precious commodity, harvesting moisture will do that. :p

    So when the Rogues taught him to swim & throw water filled balloons or bags until they burst [face_laugh] it was a thing he had to get used to.

    But, he had to confess, he had found it quite fun and relaxing ... a way to recapture childhood mischief.

    And then, sharing baths with Mara Jade -- now that was the best use of water.

    ***

    The heat between them was almost tangible.

    Luke was stripped down to his shorts as he worked on his X-wing. Like it was for Han, this was more a way to unwind than anything that needed doing mechanically.

    But it was making Mara very ... happy just to look at him.

    Krell, but he was toned!!

    He caught her avid glance and winked.

    Naughty Farmboy knew exactly how to get next to her.

    ****

    Storm clouds of war, potential war, were gathering.

    But because of the alliance between the New Republic, The Chiss ascendancy, and the Imperial Remnant, the enemy was repelled.

    Peace was maintained.

    The Solos and Skywalkers, among many other sentients, were able to continue the legacy of freedom and the pursuit of happiness.

    @Briannakin

    Week Five prompts were as follows: sell, sneak, share, seek, steal. [face_thinking] ;)

    ~~~~~

    To seek after adventure was not something Luke would readily admit to. He just wanted something beyond the meerest subsistence, the next day's toil. He did relish the idea of seeing other places, doing grand things... Adventure for its own sake, though? He always wanted to "make a difference" and if he had an "exciting time" doing so, much the better.

    It was no wonder though, that his aunt and uncle wanted to keep him tethered. He chafed, but when he knew the full story, he understood their burning need to preserve and protect.

    **

    He would sneak and steal away to visit friends in town and to have races. But after a while, their parochial, dirt-bound visions of the future started to gall.

    They were content with things as they were, and this created a divide.

    Only Biggs shared the grand dreams, and this created a bond.

    ***

    They shared such things with one another. Biggs found a mature perceptiveness in Luke, far beyond his natural years. Luke was proud to share Biggs' confidings.

    When Biggs was lost, Luke wondered who would fill the gap.

    ***

    True friends -- Luke was easily the type to win them. :D He drew them in the Rogues, and Han and Leia. They provided a listening ear and times of fun as well. And even though Han claimed He would sell his friend in a pinch for a cred, Luke (and Leia) ;) knew differently.

    Han was toasted marshmallow all the way through. [face_shhh] [face_laugh]

    ++++++

    Note: Thought I'd blend them for a better, coherent flow. @};-

    I missed the water one. I am proud of Luke for conserving water by sharing baths. ;) Teenage Luke is also fun. I couldn't imagine living on such a horrible planet knowing that the galaxy was full of beautiful water-filled worlds.

    Prompts: silly; serious; rude; charming; funny.

    ***~~~~~~

    "That wasn't funny!" Mara groused. The Rogues had put whoopie cushions in the seats of all the Bothan Senate delegates, so that when they sat down, flatulence apparently erupted. [face_rofl]

    "And you weren't being rude when you told Fey'lya he couldn't pay to get romantically entangled?" Luke answred, trying unsuccessfully not to laugh at the recollection.

    Mara laughed outright.

    "He kept staring at us during the dance as if he'd never seen us together before." Mara rejoined.

    Luke frowned. "He's serious all the time."

    "That's a sure sign he's not getting anything ... "

    Luke laughed. "I thought the Gungangs were downright silly - not charming at all when they started serenading us."

    Mara sighed ruefully. "Even if it was in thanks for our aid in bringing about a treaty ... I didn't appreciate it either."

    +++++

    LOL [face_mischief]

    @Briannakin --

    This week has the following prompts: stormy trapped escape rescue recover.

    ~~~~~~~

    After Mara was rescued from the Katana fleet, Luke was so relieved he could barely move ... from her side. He watched the healers at their business, and willed those lovely green eyes to open, even if they flashed at him when they did.

    Han smirked as he observed. Luke was smitten, but good! ;)

    He might not know it yet, but he was.

    **

    As Mara recovered, she had a lingering sense that Luke was there at her side, through a semi-conscious haze, and then through increasing awareness. It touched her on a deep level that she didn't know how to define or identify. But it was undeniable, and it was made of equal parts gratitude and something .... else entirely.

    :)

    ~~~~~~~

    The stormy weather was keeping the students inside on a busy day of lessons, so their pent-up energy had to be held in abeyance for a bit longer.

    It drove the instructors crazy having to invent ways to distract the initiates long enough to keep them entertained before they could run in the rain-renewed meadows.

    ~~~~~~

    Mara hadn't felt trapped by Luke's proposal. Luke had felt he had had a narrow escape from a life of incompleteness without her.


    They enjoyed their engagement period. They dated and teased and spent long hours talking and basking in their bond in myriads of ways. Their friends and Luke's family could only think: It's about time! [face_laugh]

    And: What took you so long? :p

    +++++
