    I didn't think it was Taesa. However, I think I can safely say I have the stupidest guess yet. For whatever reason, I thought it was Luke. [face_blush]

    Zara, that's not stupid. I guess, looking back at all of the Traitor's parts in the story, it could have been Luke. It was a nice guess, but it was ultimately a wrong guess.

    You finised it! And I figured out what was going to happen as soon as you revealed Taesa as the traitor. The only part I didn't see was Alema dying. I'm not upset, just really surprised.

    The reason I didn't think Taesa was the traitor was that I hadn't read that part of the story in a while, so I kinda forgot about her. [face_blush]

    Can't wait to see the sequel!

    Why does everyone think the story is done? It's not. There's still at least two posts until the end. I'll probably end up finishing it today sometime.

    Geez, impatient people. ;) :D

    Epilogue

    "Not only do I want you to escort Tenel Ka back to Hapes, but I want you to stay there and act as her bodyguard."

    Ganner Rhysode's jaw dropped, his face a mask of shock. "What?"

    "I know you don't think that she needs protecting, but I do," Luke Skywalker told the younger man patiently. "Yes, she is a Jedi, and that's the reason I want you to stay on Hapes. The Ni Korish are still around, and I don't think they would mind knocking off their Jedi Queen Mother."

    "Wouldn't the fact that I'm a Jedi just make the situation even more volatile?" Ganner asked, getting his wits back about himself. "I mean, if the Ni Korish hate Jedi with a passion, won't I just make the situation worse?"

    "I don't believe so," Luke answered. "It might discourage them from attacking her."

    "How do you plot that course?"

    "When Tenel Ka is in her 'Queen' mode, she can't carry around a lightsaber," Luke explained. "A sharpshooter could kill her with one blast. Sure, she might be able to sense the danger, but she won't be able to protect herself. If you are there, as her bodyguard, you can carry both your own, and her, lightsaber. It will discourage any would-be assassins from making a move."

    "If you say so," Ganner said, clearly not believing Luke's reasoning. "I take it we'll be leaving as soon as Tenel Ka is ready?"

    "That would be my assumption," Luke told him. "You would have to talk to Tenel Ka about that, though." Luke stood and offered the other man his hand. Ganner shook the Jedi Master's hand. "May the Force be with you, Ganner Rhysode."

    "And with you, Master Skywalker," he returned, turning to leave the office.

    Once he was out of the office, and alone in the hall, he leaned back against the wall, closing his eyes. Great, he thought sarcastically. Now I really have a problem. How am I going to be around Tenel Ka all the time and not surrender to these feelings I seem to be having? This is going to be one interesting assignment.


    Kyp Durron stood in the middle of the meditation room, looking out the wall of transparisteel at the black holes that surrounded the Jedi base. He stared at one spot, indistinguishable from any other in that region of space.

    After a moment, he spoke. "Do you remember the exact spot where your brother's body was cremated?"

    "I could get there with my eyes closed," Jaina Solo Fel answered, coming up to stand beside him. "Is that where Taesa's body finally disappeared into the black holes?"

    Kyp nodded, not taking his eyes off of the spot in space. "I hadn't seen her for almost 15 years before just a few weeks ago," Kyp told her. "She never forgave me from when we were slaves on Kessel. I let Doole sell her to some other slaver. There was nothing I could do, and she never forgave me."

    Jaina didn't respond, and for that, Kyp was glad. The only things she could say would be meaningless platitudes, and Kyp was sick of those. He had been getting them for almost two weeks, since the ill-fated, first attempt at the Knighting ceremony.

    After a long silence, he spoke again. "All my family is dead. My parents died in the mines, and I killed my brother in a stupid attempt to save him. And now, I've killed my sister. Their blood is on my hands. It's my own fault that I have no family, but I can't help but want to blame someone else."

    "You have family, Kyp," Jaina said, her tone compelling him to look at her. "You have me, my parents, Jag, the squadron." She paused, took a breath, her eyes sparkling. "And, in nine months, you'll have my children to be an uncle to."

    It took Kyp a second to comprehend what she had just told him. "Jaina, you're..."

    "Pregnant?" she finished for him, smiling. "Yes. Twins."

    Kyp smiled and swept Jaina up in an enthusiastic hug. "That's great, Jaina. Congratulations!"

    Jaina was laughing as he set her down. "Thanks," she said, still smiling.

    "How many people know?"

    "Oh, you know, the usual," she said, a mischievious glint in her eyes. "Me, you, Jag, and Telki. It's another great secret!"

    I had fun lurking at ff.net when you were posting only over there. It was much more fun reading your story over here though. Especially during the beginning when I had already read what was going to happen. :D

    It's all Uncle George's fault, Saber. You can't do Star Wars without doing a trilogy.

    (But, if you count For the Time Being, my little series will be 4 parts, not three. But I'm not counting that because it was a one post thing.)

    Anyways.... thanks, Saber!! :D

    Once again... Thanks Jade!!

    I just want to write and write, so you might end up getting part two out later today. :D Isn't everyone happy? But, I'm not sure how I'm going to start it. But, as my english prof once told me, "Just write. It doesn't matter what. That's what you edit for."

    So, as soon as I have a title, I'll get the thread started. :D
