He heard the sound of the blinds opening and he opened his eyes to glare at them and then at the closed door. ?Stop opening the blinds!? Anakin ordered and shut them again with the Force. He attempted to go back to sleep, but then he sat up as something dawned on him. He stretched out with the Force and felt two presences in his quarters. His eyes widened and he shook his head in disbelief. It was impossible what he sensed. ?Must be the alcohol.? Anakin muttered and headed for the refresher to wash up. After a cold shower Anakin got dressed and left his bedroom to go make breakfast. He stopped a few steps from the kitchen when he smelled something. Anakin frowned and entered the kitchen to find a plate of oatmeal with two slices of toast on the table, along with a glass of juice. He sensed the two presences again and slowly turned around, his hand resting on the hilt of his lightsaber. ?Good morning daddy.? Two voices said in unison. Anakin backed up a few steps and bumped into a chair. Losing his balance as he tried to figure out what was going on, Anakin fell onto the floor unconscious. ?You killed him!? Leia exclaimed, her brown eyes wide. Luke frowned and cautiously approached Anakin. Kneeling down next to Anakin, Luke placed his hand on Anakin?s chest and felt the rise and fall of Anakin?s chest. ?He?s alright. Get me some cold water.? Leia filled a cup with some water and handed it over to Luke. Luke took the cup and dumped the water onto Anakin?s face. ?That should do it.? Anakin reflexively wiped the water from his face with his hand and then opened his eyes to see two young faces looking down at him. He scrambled away from them and stood and ran out of his quarters to Obi-Wan?s quarters. After franticly typing in the access code, Anakin ran inside as soon as the door opened and found Obi-Wan and his padawan finishing up breakfast. Obi-Wan paused what he was telling his padawan and looked up to see Anakin?s pale face. ?What?s wrong Anakin? You look like you?ve just seen a ghost.? Obi-Wan questioned. ?I?? Anakin ran his right hand through his hair and then left the kitchen and went into the living area. ?Padawan, clean the dishes and get to class. We?ll finish discussing your training schedule later.? Obi-Wan told her and then went after Anakin. He found Anakin sitting on the couch, his face in his hands. Obi-Wan sat down next to him and waited. ?They?re dead, I know they are. I held their lifeless bodies. I watched them and Padme be reduced to ashes.? Tears streaming from his eyes, Anakin looked up at Obi-Wan. ?I saw my children. In my quarters.? Swallowing hard, Anakin continued. ?They were alive. I could sense their presences in the Force. It?s not possible!? Anakin denied vehemently. Obi-Wan wrapped his arm around Anakin?s shaking shoulders as Aankin began sobbing. Anakin buried his face into Obi-Wan?s side, taking comfort in Obi-Wan?s soothing presence. Obi-Wan sent soothing waves of the Force to his brother and then sent a Force suggestion to make him sleep. As soon as Anakin was asleep, Obi-Wan made Anakin comfortable on the couch, covered him with a blanket and went to go investigate. He didn?t have to go far. The doorbell rang just as he reached the door and he opened it to see two concerned children looking up at him.
