    Of Love and Marriage
    by J-Girl

    timeframe: Pre-ESB, 'mission' right before Ord Mantell; up through and including Ord Mantell; after Ord Mantell all the way to Echo Base in the Hoth System; oh yeah, AND BEYOND! ;)

    characters: Han and Leia; Chewie and Luke as minor characters

    type: you'll laugh, you'll cry out, You'll melt, you'll curse, you'll catch your breath, you'll eat some cookies, maybe a little popcorn...

    Summary: Han and Leia find themselves stuck on a system where Leia is being compelled to become queen. The catch is that she must be married. And guess who they want her to marry? That's the beginning....



    Post Links: All of the "chapters" (posts with story content in them)are now linked on the first page of this fic. Also, each chapter is linked to the previous chapter and the next chapter. You will find the link to the previous one at the top of the chapter you are reading and the link to the next one at the end. This is to help make reading the entire story through easier. I hope you think it's a good idea.
    links only work correctly if your screen is set at the default 25 replies per page. So you're good to go, unless you have manually changed it using the "Options" link above

    Chapter 2: Testing the Magic Potion, Princess?

    Leia came down to join him before dinner. She found Han pouring himself what had to be at least a second drink. He noticed her arrival without looking up at her.

    ?Wanna a drink??

    ?Sure, thanks.? The princess, suddenly restless, walked around the room absently admiring the artwork on the walls while he took a second glass and poured her drink. Now dressed in an elegant, dark lavender gown with a fitted bodice with a single brown braid falling down her back, she wondered why she felt a little unsure of herself.

    As Han turned to hand her the drink, he was taken aback by how beautiful she looked. He guessed the king had sent the clothes over with the rest of their things. Rarely had he had the opportunity to see Leia so formally dressed and appearing for all intents and purposes like a princess. Seeing her now, he wished the occasion would come up more often.

    ?You look nice,? Han beamed, an obvious appreciative smile lighting up his eyes as he gave her royal-like gown the once-over, then the twice-over. ?I didn?t know we were dressing for dinner,? he tried to leer, but it came out differently than he expected. Han was so busy appraising her that he hadn?t noticed the difference.

    She blushed a very pretty pink and hated herself for liking his open stare. Their hands brushed as she took the drink from him, giving off little shocks of electricity everywhere their skin touched.

    ?Thanks. Since we?re here, I thought I might as well enjoy it,? Leia answered, trying to explain her change in attire. It felt good to be wearing nice clothes for a change and even more so that it had stunned the rough-around-the-edges smuggler.

    Han silently seconded the idea as something they could both enjoy. This softer image of her made something in his chest do pleasant little flips whenever he looked at her.

    Talking as innocently as possible throughout dinner, mostly about the food, both secretly wondered if that elixir would actually work. Once the subject of food was exhausted, they continued to speak guardedly, staying on safe topics, just in case. Han put his unease down to being in an untried atmosphere. Here he was having dinner in a palace with a princess supposedly with the express purpose of testing their feelings towards each other. In the years that he had known Leia, he teased her enough about her status, but here it was in it?s glory right in front of him. And it was definitely something to see. As for Leia, she was feeling more and more comfortable in an element she had been forced to abandon a long time ago now. However, having dinner with Han Solo under such circumstances proved to be rather unnerving, especially with the thought that the preposterous elixir might just do enough to throw them into an unwanted conversation. After dessert, the staff disappeared leaving the two of them alone and awkwardly wondering what to do next.

    Solo stood up. He needed to do something besides sitting around while the tension grew. The more he watched her, the more a strange feeling kept tugging at him.

    ?Well, how ?bout a walk around the grounds? I?d love to check this place out,? Han suggested.

    ?That sounds good. I wouldn?t mind walking off some of this rich food,? Leia agreed, easily taking his arm without realizing he didn?t exactly offer it.

    With only a surreptitious glance at her hand grasping his bicep, Han led her out the side door and into the moonlit gardens. They wound along the flat stone path, breathing in the sweet delicate aroma of exotic flowers drifting in the warm night breeze. The gardens were an intricate maze of stone waterfalls, pools, and greenery, bursting with blooms of flowers everywhere. The inescapable romantic atmosphere spoke
