    Hello readers! This is my 1st fanfic on the site and I?m very excited.
    I really hope you guys enjoy it!


    Disclaimer: SW is not mine, it belongs to George Lucas, yada yada yada?and so we begin!


    Below is just a preview: a teaser if you will. It helps set the stage for emotional turmoil?

    ~Leave the Light On~
    *************************
    Prologue

    Tahiri, Luke, and Jacen were seated in the kitchen of Senator Leia Solo?s summerhouse. It was the first getaway the family had been allowed since the death of their youngest son, Anakin. It had been nearly six years, and yet the shock and pain of the incident still weighed heavily on the hearts of everyone involved.


    Tahiri Veila was now a near permanent part of the family, since it was she who witnessed the last breaths of Anakin Solo, her longtime friend and almost boyfriend. They had barely embarked on that journey at the time of his death. She was also present when his body burned. It was she, clothed in her now signature color, black, that first
    spoke.

    ?So what are we here for exactly??

    Luke sighed and tried to answer as tactfully as possible. ?It?s been awhile since Anakin died, and the both of you aren?t moving anywhere with your lives.? That didn?t come out as gentle as he hoped.

    ?I mean, no matter how much you want to live in the past, it is time to let our grief go.?

    Jacen got that stubborn Solo look on his face and retorted,? Uncle Luke, I?m working on it. It just seems lately that every little thing I see or hear reminds me of him. After being captured by his killers, spending every waking moment with those terrible Vong??

    ?Yuuzhan Vong. ? Tahiri murmured.

    ?I know, I know. But we cannot let our lives end because someone else?s was. I know that there was a strong bond between each of us and Anakin, but that is no reason not to live up to your full potential! Listen, I know that experiences of your own after that time led you to hide your sorrow away to deal with later.?

    ?You don?t understand!? Tahiri burst out, surprised at herself after she said the words.

    Jacen flew off the handle as well. ? You don?t! You can?t understand! I can?t even fathom the depth of the loss of him! Anakin was more than a boy: he was a hero, a brother, a son, and almost a lover.? Tahiri gave him a thankful glance.

    ?I didn?t know him well enough then. Not nearly well enough. I wish I had! I just wish that-? He broke off here as his tears began falling rapidly. It was the first time he had opened up to anyone about his feelings on the death of his brother.

    ? I feel as strongly as you do, Jacen. I once lost someone very close to me as well, you know. I took it hard then, but the more I saw death happen, the more I was able to cope with it. You two have suffered the loss of things before, but never have you lost someone so close to you by death. It?s a new feeling, and hard to deal with I?m sure, especially since you couldn?t take it out on those who did the deed. The war is over now, and now the true bitterness is starting to sink in. But I know that he will always be with you.? Luke finished. To this day he still missed Obi-Wan Kenobi. By this time, the three occupants of the room were all in tears.

    Tahiri stood and threw her arms around Luke. He was surprised at first, and then hugged her back. They embraced for a long moment, and then Luke kissed the crown of the blonde mop, releasing her. Jacen reached down to hug Luke to, but stopped himself, pretending to dust off his robe. Luke could tell he was thoroughly embarrassed. Instead, Jacen offered his uncle a hand. Luke smiled faintly and shook it.

    Then Luke too stood, and ushered them out of the kitchen. They all went their separate ways, and, as it was late, settled into their beds to listen to the sound of the rain that fell like their tears.

    Welcome aboard. Beautiful post. :) Loved how Tahiri and Jacen reminisced (sp) over Anakin while Luke did the same for Obi-Wan. Continue! Oh, and I read that you are in need of a beta. Contact me if you still do. :)

    YOU ARE MY HERO! I have been needing a beta reader! Thanks so much! *hugs* thanks for being my first reader. Your encouragement helps.

    Yeah, I like the little twist of Luke thinking about Obi-Wan...I think it'll come into play later. But until then, I think the return of a hero is in order...
