    Han lowered his arm. "You don't have to do this, Jaya. It's never too late to turn back."

    No! Jay don't do it! :eek: You left us hanging!

    I can't believe Kyp got beaten!

    This is tense. Can't wait for the next part.

    Brilliant writing. :) Good to see this back.

    :eek: She will not marry Vash! No, no, no, no, no...

    I love this story! And, yay! Kyp got his memory back! [face_dancing]
    Really, really looking forward to reading more.

    Oh, you're killing me with the 00:00:01! It reminds me of GalaxyQuest, sorta. JAINA! LISTEN TO KAYLEE! This semi-reminds me of Serendipity. Poor beatup Kyp. I'll go comfort shirtless him. Just as soon as he marries Jaina!

    We'll see. [face_devil]

    And it does appear he did, doesn't it?

    Hee, it isn't supposed to remind of Serendipity, but it kinda does, doesn't it? You do realise that if you try to comfort Kyp after he's married to Jaina, Jay will kill you? ;)

    I didn't say I'd kiss him or sleep with him or anything, just run over and give him a hug and a gift certificate to a masseuse.

    Thank you for the update! I loved it! I can't wait for more. Hopefully the next chapter won't take so long for you to write. Kyp better move it to get to the Wedding.

    Wow! Wonderful to see more of this! It?s funny how the story is all coming back now (like Kyp?s memory?LOL):oops:

    She didn't have to wonder, really. He'd call her stupid. He and Kyp had been the two people in her life who had been unafraid to call her on it when they thought she was full of poodoo. And even if Jag had been jealous over her feelings for Kyp, feelings she had denied so long, he would have told her to follow her heart

    And isn?t that so true. Of course that?s Kyp for you: tell it like it is.

    His mother smirked, backed out of the room, and pulled a commlink out of her reticule.


    She?s the one I am suspicious of!!!!!!

    Only Kyp's natural reflexes kept him from getting a bolt straight to the stomach.

    Demonstrating that the Force flows naturally through him even if he can?t remember how to fully direct it. Throughout the fight I kept thinking ?Kyp, kick their butts!? Then I realized he can?t quite remember how to channel the Force. That?s so weird, Kyp ?low? on Force power!

    He got his memory back when he remembered the war and the Slayers and Hapes didn?t he??????

    You better not leave us dangling for months! We want more and soon!!!!!=D=

    Heh, yeah, he'll be feeling that beating in the morning!

    There goes Leia's no-interruptions. *cackles*

    Yeah, when I was writing it, I had to keep reminding myself that he doesn't have the Force, and can't do all that nifty fighting.

    I'm working on finishing up the next chapter now; it's been mostly written for two years now. Heh.

    I've added you to the list. :D

    It's Kyp; concussive maintenance might be the only answer. :p

    =D= Wow I don't know what to say. I'm tetering on the edge her.

    I have to say though that I'm kinda expecting a speeder to come crashing into the middle of the wedding.

    Can't wait to see what you have planned.

    I've never watched 24, so I really can't compare the two. (Though I'd watch an ep if Jack got stuck in traffic for an hour.)


    I had to reread before I finished writing last chapter. Heh.

    I've added you to the PM list!

    There's still more after this, don't worry.



    --Chapter Eleven--

    Jaina's eyes scanned the large chamber as she slowly walked up the aisle on her father's arm. She didn't see Kyp. A feeling welled up in her chest that she wasn't sure whether to call disappointment, or relief. He wasn't here, and that only left her one option.

    "You okay, honey?" Han whispered, somehow sensing without the Force that she still felt off-kilter. He obviously didn't believe her, but wasn't going to ask again.

    "Yeah, Dad, I'm fine." She gave him a tremulous smile. "It's my wedding day, why wouldn't I be?"

    Vash's face was alight at the sight of her. She focused on him and smiled, hoping that she looked as eager to be doing this as he did. Then her eyes went to her daughter, who stood beside Tenel Ka, her maid of honour. Kaylee's hair had been curled and piled up on her head, with little white flowers and green ribbons that matched her dress. Jaina smiled wider at the sight of her. Kay's disappointment that Kyp wasn't there visibly warred with her excitement at the occasion and the chance to wear her new green dress.

    Han and Jaina stopped at the head of the aisle, right in front of Luke and Vash. Jaina hoped her trembling didn't show. She wanted to marry Vash. Really. She was just nervous.

    Jaina stood on her toes to kiss her father's cheek through the sheer netting of her veil. "Thank you, Daddy," she whispered.

    Han smiled and there were tears in his eyes. "I love you, Jaina."

    He stepped back and sat next to Leia in the front row.

    She turned to her uncle and her fiancé. Vash stood even taller, practically beaming as she stepped onto the dais.

    Luke's blue eyes were calm, managing to look comforting and concerned at the same time. She'd never be able to figure out how he seemed to know everything. And he didn't need to say anything. Her whole family thought she was making a mistake, but it was too late. Far too late. Wasn't it?

    "We're gathered here today to join together two beings in matrimony," he began. "Jaina, Vash. Today, you two join hands to pledge your love for one another as you start your journey together."

    In her white gloves, Jaina's palms were suddenly sweaty. What was she doing? Was this the right thing for her and Kaylee? What about Kyp? And where was Kyp, anyway?

    "Marriage is more than the joining of two individuals," Luke continued. "It is the cornerstone on which the foundation of a family is built. Everything you do from now on will be as a unit, and you should remember that you have each other to rely on. Do not be afraid to turn to each other, to support each other."

    He seemed to be looking rather significantly at Jaina, who avoided meeting his eyes.

    "Jaina and Vash, please take each other by the right hand."

    Vash held out his hand, and Jaina hesitated only a fraction of a second before placing her white-gloved hand in his. Luke held up a wide ribbon and tied their wrists together. Jaina remembered seeing this at several weddings in her childhood and had liked the touch. But right now, it felt strange to be tied to Vash.

    "You take each other by the right hand to show that you are the right hand of each other," Luke said. "This tying of your hands symbolises your union."

    He looked at the audience, and Jaina firmly kept her gaze on the ribbon around their wrists.

    Was this really what she wanted? Could she do this?

    "If any here can provide just cause why these two should not be wed, speak now, or forever hold your peace."

    A second ticked by, then two.

    Jaina took a deep breath, opened her mouth-

    The doors burst open, slamming against the walls with a thunderous clang, and a voice rang out. "I object!"

    ----------

    Every head turned to the back of the chamber. Kyp Durron stood in the doorway, dressed all in black save for a burgundy shirt of an almost military style, with his standard black cape--which Jaina hadn't seen him wear at all in the last week--draped dramatically over one shoulder.

    Jaina's heart suddenly/>
