    Sweet! Looking forward to yet another chapter of this romantic masterpiece! (No sarcasm, btw!)

    Meanwhile, I'm still trying to write my own (and first) Star Wars fic.

    Here's the next chapter, pure Jaina, Solo/Skywalker fun!

    Hope you enjoy. Comments welcome. :)







    [Chapter 15 ? Star Light or Star Struck]


    ?I hate goodbyes.?

    ?Me too.?

    ?? When you back on Coruscant??

    ?A few days. I?ve got your number and address, I?ll find you.?

    ?Guess I should get going . . .?

    ?Jaina ? I?ll . . I . . .?

    ?Don?t worry racerboy, I think I know what you?re trying to get at . . . I?ll miss you too.?


    With one last kiss, Jaina walked away.



    > 3 Days Ago..




    ~~


    It had been only three days. A few days. Nothing really. But?

    Some of the most difficult days.

    Jaina had gone to Hapes to congratulate her twin and his wife, on their new member of the family. They welcomed her warmly and they all had a lot to catch up on.

    Thankfully, Jacen and Tenel always talked of subjects important to the present.

    Not once did they bring up her hurtful past year. Calvin?s name was never mentioned or even hinted at. Maybe that was wrong to ignore the scar on Jaina?s past, but it helped to ease tension.

    They acted as if it had never happened and it allowed Jaina to relax more in their company. For once she didn?t have to protect herself from painful memories. Because no one was attempting to bring them up in conversation.

    That part of her life was a shadow, gone, over and done with. This was a new chapter. And Jaina intended to enjoy it.

    She was genuinely happy for them. Being around the new-made mother and father made Jaina?s heart melt, because she shared their excitement and joy.

    Another part though, was screaming.

    Screeching with envy. And even bitterness.

    It made Jaina think of her own life. One thought dwelled in her mind when she looked at Jacen, Tenel and their tiny son, one thought: That could have been me, I could have had that?

    She?d had a marriage once. And it could have turned into a family. Her own little family. Yet it had been wrenched from her grasp, all hopes torn away with the lose of one piece. One person.

    Jaina had closure on Calvin. She did. But it still felt unfair. That her life should take a u-turn, whilst others continued on happily? Why? The injustice of it ate away at her.

    Despite her inner turmoil, Jaina smiled.

    This was her brother?s moment. And she would rather he enjoy it, than worry over her and her silly thoughts. Carefully, she mentally shut away her dark emotions and focused on what was important. Her new nephew.

    ?May I hold him, again??

    Smiling heartedly, Jacen answered,
    ?Of course.?

    In next moment, Jaina held the cutest baby boy in her arms.

    Unaware of the fuss he was under, Alexion slumbered. His little mouth hung open agape, whilst his tiny hands clenched tight, before slowly loosening again. No sound came from him except his slow soft breaths. He was the most adorable thing Jaina had ever held.

    Just then, the doors abruptly whooshed open.

    ?Where is he then?? Han Solo marched into the room cheerily, ?The entertainment has arrived.?

    Following her father, came Leia, Luke and Mara. All were in casual wear, looking very merry, and very intent on seeing little Alexion. But all four stopped dead when they saw who Alexion was being held by. None had expected her. And she?d planned it that way.

    Jaina quirked a smile at them,
    ?Surprise??

    Slightly taken aback, Leia replied,
    ?I didn?t even sense you.?

    ?Surprise? - I?ll bloody say!? Grinned Han, ?Kriff Jaya, you look great.?

    Her father came forward first, giving her a hug, careful of the bundle in her arms. As he gave a tender kiss to her cheek, he murmured in her ear,
    ?We?ve missed you, sweetheart.?

    Seconds later Leia was embracing her, whispering the exact same words. And Jaina started to feel tears sting her eyes. How had she ever pushed them away? Her most loyal, compassionate and loving friends, had always been her parents.

    Silently Jaina vowed to make it up to them. Somehow she would show them how much they truly meant to her.

    The Skywalkers gave their hugs and kisses soon after and the five of them/>

    This part really pulled at my heart strings... You seemed to have caught Jaina's bittersweetness perfectly. :_| =D=



    ?Where is he then?? Han Solo marched into the room cheerily, ?The entertainment has arrived.?

    I could so see Grandpa Han doing that too. [face_laugh]



    Apologies for not replying sooner or more often, Louise... This absolutely is my fave J/OC fanfic. You go girl! =D=

    Gah! Darn, I'm late!

    I don't know what else I can say, because every chapter is simply beautiful! Beautifully written, beautifully touching and emotional....just beautiful! Seriously! You write the canon characters perfectly and you are one of the few writers who can take their made-up characters and make them feel like they are apart of the Expanded Universe!

    I'll say it again, though! Great job! Looking forward to the rest!

    EDITED:

    I can't apparently PM you back also becaue I haven't posted enough on the forum (that'll change soon). Anyways, here's the PM:

    PMs are fine! I forgot you can get those on this forum as well, lol! Not quite familiar with the design, yet.

    Thanks!

    ?Han, you can?t just threaten the guy.? Mara said nonchalantly, ?First you need to monitor him, get the dirt on him, and then threaten him.?


    [face_laugh] That's Mara for you! :D =D=

    [ Chapter 16 ? Miss Me? ]

    A thud echoed in the empty apartment.

    Jaina stood by her fallen bags. Finally, she was back on Coruscant. And her place was how she?d left it, a complete mess. She had packed so fast for Chandrila, chucking things in every direction, whilst her aunt stood waiting in the doorway. Jaina had never considered how annoying the chaos of jumble would be on her return.

    It wasn?t just the mess. Jaina new she had more important things to sort out.

    Slightly hesitant, she walked into her bedroom and gazed at the open wardrobe. She swallowed her sudden heartbreak and sighed. She should have done it a year ago. But back then, she just could never let go.

    Calvin?s clothes still hung in the wardrobe, as if waiting for him to stroll back in at any moment. Like Jaina had imagined, hoped and wished he would. That dream was gone now though, she knew the truth and accepted the past. It was time for a change.

    Jaina made herself a quick cup of caf.

    After tidying and unpacking, she stood in front of her huge wardrobe with both hands on her hips.

    One second later, she nodded to herself and decided it was time to put everything away, to put Calvin?s memory to rest. She tackled the wardrobe quickly, grabbing his old shoes, shirts, trousers, jumpers, and underwear. Anything that was his was pulled out and heaped together.

    It was all piled and bagged.

    At the end of the clear out, Jaina felt a huge weight lift from her shoulders. She looked at the bare wardrobe sadly. Despite the sorrow in her actions, she managed a small bittersweet smile, as she shut the wardrobe doors. It was well and truly over. And she could finally put everything to rest completely.

    For her, life was starting again. Now it was about making new memories.

    She couldn?t wait.

    ?Whoo-hoooooo!!!?

    He was back where he belonged. And loving every second of it. Like an excited child, Orion yelled his lungs out with joy as he pushed his podracer through its paces.

    He sat in an oval seat compartment, attached to quadruple turbine engines. Three turbines were placed at the front, lined together by orange plasma beams. One turbine was at the back of the vehicle, for faster turn ability. The seat part was painted a fiery red, and the turbines were silver streaked with yellow lines.

    The Coruscant track, The Jerker, was completely empty and at his disposal. To which he took full advantage.

    The track was called Jerker for good reason, throughout the course were spiked towers, narrow tunnels, many u-turns, one wrong move or delayed reaction could cost a driver dearly. As Orion knew only too well.

    Pushing at several hundred miles an hour, Orion weaved past a selection of towers. They whipped by, intimidating, tall and blurry. The podracer came to a steep u-turn corner, with a curvaceous wall at the end as high as a building.

    Orion punched the power on full. The engines smoked and their fiery discharge turned a hotter shade of white; that jettisoned the pod like a bullet straight towards the enormous wall.

    The podracer hovered barely inches from the ground as it followed up the steep wall, from afar it appeared to surf the wall like a wave.

    As it neared the top, Orion leaned it left in a quick harsh move. In doing so he switched the power on low, allowing the past momentum to carry the podracer back down the sharp angled hill.

    Just as the podracer straighten, allowing Orion to see the narrow track below, he kicked the power on full. Humming with sudden thrust, the podracer dived down the rest of the high wall so fast, that when it hit the floor it left a trailing cloud of dust and litter.

    With his heart beating hard, his hair flicking care/>

    Woot! First! I love how you've portrayed Jaina here, it's very true to her character. She's finally moving on, and it's good to see that. Why do I have the feeling something bad is going to happen to Orion though?

    I'm worried about Orion racing again, if he gets one of his attacks while racing he'll be a bug on a windshield. and Jaina couldn't handle losing him.

    On the bright side, now that he is on Courascant Han and Mara will probably find out who exactly Jaina's mystery man is. [face_devil]
