    TorynFarr : I do know how much you like H/L fics, I see you at every fic I follow ;) That said, I still appreciate your feedback here!

    Sologal : That is a really nice thing to say. And our favorite princess is always a resourceful kinda chick. She would have to be to be able to avoid a certain scruffy-looking nerfherder for this long. ;)

    Elektra : Bad timing. I wasn't even here when you made the request. Glad you liked the post though. :)

    Dant Solo : Thanks, Dexster! :D

    leia393 : Thanks! And I know! How she hasn't jumped into his arms before now just confounds me to no end! :)

    Stoned Rose : Thanks for the warm fuzzies! :)



    Alright, here is the bad news : No post tonight. It will have to wait because now that I look at it, it could be so much better than it is at the moment. So I will work on it tonight and post it tomorrow so everyone will have some Han and Leia to read after the Sunday funny papers.

    The GOOD news is that after some brainstorming with my ever reliable beta readers (you know who you are, ;) ), I may just have some extra posts to add towards the end of the fic. Yikes, now that I have said it, I better write it!

    See you Sunday, I will NOT fail you!

    Hey!

    I'm still here, reading faithfully! I just lurk a lot of the time. This keeps getting better. I know I said I didn't like mushy stuff, but this is like eating chocolate for breakfast: you're not supposed to do it, but its irrisistable. :)

    All the best,
    JediLeiaSolo

    boushh2187 : the Force dex, that is. ;)

    JediLeiaSolo : Nice to know you are still here. I would hate to think I am losing readers. And you mean to tell me you're not supposed to eat choclate for breakfast? So that's what I have been doing wrong all these years. ;)

    Thanks for hanging in there all. New post up momentarily.....

    What am I doing here after 2:30 AM my time, you ask? I'm posting the next scene, of course. Nice to know my incurable insomnia comes in handy now and then ;)





    ***********************************
    Previous: Chapter 8: Will You Still Call Me ?Sweetheart??
    ***********************************



    Chapter 9: Exactly How Many Princesses Do You Know?

    Leia was jarred awake to the sound of her door chiming insistently. Grabbing her robe lying next to the bed, she threw it on as she hurried to the outerchamber to see who it was. Briefly, she wondered what time it was and wished she had checked the chrono on the way. ?Who is it??

    ?It?s me, Sweetheart. Open up,? Han called back from the other side.

    Leia released the lock and the door slid open. Han stood there with what she thought was a rather relieved expression on his face.

    ?What do you want, Han?? Leia inquired more sharply than she had intended. She pulled her robe a little tighter and ran a hand over her hair in an attempt to smooth it down. Leia knew she definitely looked worse for wear right now. Thinking about everything facing her, she had tossed and turned all night.

    Han?s expression changed to his more familiar mask, ?What?s the matter, Your Worship? Nervous about gettin? married to the most gorgeous pilot in the galaxy??

    ?Funny, I thought I was marrying you,? she shot back, her mood now beginning to match her tone. ?Did you want something??

    Actually, Han had wanted to see her before the ceremonies, but lacked an excuse. When he ran into her attendant searching for her, he conveniently volunteered to check her guest quarters. He had a good feeling that he might find her there hiding out. He was concerned about her. The marriage aside, she was undertaking the responsibility for an entire system?s welfare. Even if it was in name only for the time being, there was a very real possibility that she would preside over the throne as an active ruler at some point. He knew that Alderaan had to be onerously influencing her stress level. She was the strongest being Han had ever encountered, but she was still human. Judging by her drained appearance, he was right about how she was dealing with it. A surge of protectiveness raced through him. He ached to gather her up into his arms, kiss her, stroke her back and tell her everything was going to be all right that he was there for her.

    Solo stepped past her, allowing the door to slide closed behind him. ?Your assistant is goin? crazy lookin? for you. What?s the matter??

    ?I must have forgotten to set the alarm,? she dismissed, watching him walk right in as if she had invited him. It was true, she had forgotten to turn it on. When she first went to bed, her mind had been in overdrive thinking about her feelings for Han. As the sleepless night wore on, thoughts of Alderaan crept in and set up camp. After that, sleep had been next to impossible. ?Han, you have to go.?

    Han knew that Leia was nothing if not punctual and responsible. She wouldn?t just forget, especially not for something as important as the impending events of the day. He was determined not to let her try to this write off as if it didn?t matter. ?Tell me what?s goin? on.?

    ?I told you, I overslept,? the visibly fatigued princess insisted.

    He softly traced the curve under Leia?s eye with the tips of his finger, ?Then why does it look like you didn?t sleep at all?? Solo wanted to convince himself it was something more easily handled, that it was only the idea that she was marrying him that was bothering her and ignore the rest of the logical reasons, but that was only a wistful wish.

    ?This isn?t about the wedding, is it?? Solo pushed.

    The wedding. Leia couldn?t think about that at the moment. She shook her head, but said nothing.

    His voice became gentle, ?Then what is it?? When she still didn?t answer, he knew he would have to be the one to say it. Han grimaced, ?Alderaan.?

    As he said the name,

    Ooh, look at that! A fellow middle-of-the-night poster! :)

    Fabulous post. I loved how you wrapped it up with the 'kiss him or kill him' remark. LOL!

    As always, I look foward to more. :)

    boushh2187 : nope, insomnia and I have had a long time torrid affair going on for years.

    Dant Solo : Always wanting more, now you sound like me, ;)

    LovelyLea : Happy to hear you think so. Thanks!

    Sweetheart : Yup, tis the nature of the princess and the pirate.

    Stoned Rose : no wonder I seem to see you posts before most of other your fans ;) Thanks!


    As for the 'kiss him or kill him' remark, that was added minutes before I posted. It just came to me outta nowhere, but it does seem to fit, doesn't it? At least I think it came out of nowhere, now I am wondering if I haven't used it before in one of my other fics. LOL. Now see what a little extra time can bring? :)


    Thanks, stay tuned...

    Wherever there is a H/L fic....I'll be there ;)

    geez, and I thought I stayed up late...
    "kill him or kiss him. Either way it promised to be a showdown" <-- I love that line!

    Lindy2 : Welcome! And there will be more as long as there are readers. :) Don't worry, the reason I write fanfic is to force these two fun personalites to crash together for amusement. Does that make any sense?

    TorynFarr : Not just up late, just always up, LOL. And you know, I really like that line too, if I do say so myself. :)

    More soon...

    Sologal : Thanks! Always great to hear that. :)

    Dant Solo : Yeah, weird. (if I got it wrong, you probably know why ;) )


    OK, it's decided, new additions to the story will be included. Thanks for you input, it did help make the final decision. :D
