Sorry, fell behind things a bit. Since then, she'd been afraid to reach out for him, worried he had realized that what had happened on Kuat was a mistake. In retrospect, their interaction had been silent and awkward on the jump back to base, and she realized she wasn't sure if Anakin really liked her as much as she'd thought. Perhaps the things they'd done at the lodge had only happened because he thought they might die or get captured? Or maybe they just happened because she came on to him. Perhaps he'd even left on a date with the pretty aide who was now absent from her desk...? With those possibilities simmering in her mind, Tahiri was starting to feel a bit embarrassed about her actions. Pish, silly girl...self-doubt is a nasty thing. Yummilicious 'picnic". What do you mean, the mush doesn't appeal to many people?! Next post: But, when she was completely happy, she rewarded him with a smile that lit up his existence and made him remember what he was actually fighting for. She was a living reflection of the noble goals that lay beyond his duty, and she illuminated the human soul of the man inside the Supreme Commander's uniform. Awwwww But Jacen's still scary. Good post though.
