Luke seemed troubled. "Obi-Wan let himself be killed, didn't he?" Anakin sighed. Blast Obi-Wan into the five Sith hells for making him have this conversation with Luke! "Yes." "Why would he do that? Knowing how much we need him?" I don't know what was going through that crazy old man's head, Anakin wanted to say, but he knew from looking at his grief-stricken son that those words would bring no comfort. "I'm?not sure, Luke. Sometimes Jedi do things for a sacrifice that others cannot see, but will understand later on in life." "Oh." Luke stood and walked to the door, but paused. "Did you?hear?anything while we were running into the ship in the Death Star's docking bay?" Anakin frowned. Hear anything? What was Luke getting at? "No?" "Okay." And Luke was gone before Anakin could ask him about his question. What had Luke heard that Anakin had not? And what was Obi-Wan thinking, giving Luke and Leia entirely into Anakin's hands now?hands that were not steady and needed their own rock for strengthening? Anakin was still so conflicted over Jedi teaching and ideals, and his own powerful emotional responses: how could he be expected to continue Luke's training without tainting it with Anakin's own shadow? At least while Obi-Wan was alive, Anakin knew the old man would intercept something he didn't like. Now Anakin was on his own and he not only had one child, but both twins! "Damn you, Obi-Wan Kenobi, in whatever plane of existence you live on now," Anakin muttered. 'Kay Obi, now's the time to say something to blow Anakin's mind. Just like Anakin, though (so far) to think of what Obi-Wan's death meant: problems for Anakin. Doesn't he even miss his master? Loved all the family dynamics.
