    Holding My Last Breath ? a Zekk and Jaina vignette
    By Trickster_Jaina_Fel

    Disclaimer
    : Unfortunately, I?m not the genius(es) that owns the song ?Holding My Last Breath? (Evanescence has that honour) or the characters/universe (give you one guess as to who did ? yes, George Lucas, however did you know?). Oh woe is me. However shall I get past the disappointment? Please don?t sue ? I too young to have much money.
    Genre: angst, drama, and some romance
    Pairings: Zekk/Jaina
    Author?s Note: Ah?and we?re back to angst [face_devil] Definitely more comfortable here :p ;)
    This is an informal sequel to my vignette [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=11696114]Right Here All Along[/link]. You don?t have to read it to understand what?s going on, but it?ll fill in a few background details ;)




    ~*~*~*~*~




    She had been battling the warrior for what seemed like lifetimes, but she knew it had only been a few moments. Her wandering mind made it seem longer and harder than it was. Or perhaps it was her wandering heart, which was currently hanging on that thin strand that connected her to Zekk.

    Their bond was splitting so cruelly, so torturously that there was no doubt in her mind as to what was happening:

    Zekk was dying.

    Jaina had never been more terrified in her life.

    At last she found her opening and with a flash of her lightsaber the ?Vong slumped to the floor, his head several feet from the rest of his body. She never saw the carnage though; she was already sprinting over ?Vong bodies, through passage ways and to the bridge where she had last seen her husband. In her haste, she nearly hurtled over the catwalk?s metal railings.

    ?Zekk!? Her voice rang out in the tomb-like room.



    Hold on to me love
    You know I can?t stay long



    Her gaze found him, attempting to stand before he slumped against the wall he had been using as a support. She half-ran, half-tripped down the stairs. She was not aware of how she made her way across the floor to where he was, but foggy images of a bodies that looked like people she had once known ? friends, comrades-in-arms, commanding officers and others ? flitted in her mind.

    When she reached him she dropped to her knees, catching him after another failed attempt to rise. Tears began to clog her vision as the green eyes she had lost herself in for as long as she remembered turned to find hers. ?Jaina.?



    All I wanted to say was I love you and I?m not afraid
    Can you hear me?
    Can you feel me in your arms?



    His voice was soft, unsteady, and the keen light in his eyes was at the same time frighteningly bright and dim. She became aware of sticky blood seeping onto her hands from a chest wound. Though the amphistaff or whatever it had been that took him out had missed his lungs and heart, it hit nearby and the blood was no doubt drowning his organs. The warrior that had caused Zekk?s fatal wound lay about two metres away, so bloodied she could not even see what rank he had been.

    Meaningless words trickled from her lips in the face of what was happening and though she realized she probably sounded half-hysterical, half-bubble-minded. ?Zekk?oh Force?my love??



    Holding my last breath
    Safe inside myself



    He blinked almost sleepily, his hand finding hers. ?Hey ? Jay, you alright??

    She swallowed, trying to dislodge the lump in her throat. Alright? How could she?how?kriff, would it ever be alright again? ?I ? I?m okay,? she lied.

    He nodded vaguely. ?Good?that?s good?you have such a beautiful smile?I don?t like seeing you cry?? None of his sentences seemed to finish and though she could feel the amount of concentration the words were taking him, it felt as if he was drifting farther and farther away from her, like a boat floating out into a storm, never to return.



    Are all my thoughts of you
    Sweet raptured light
    It ends here tonight



    ?I ? ? he struggled to find the breath to speak ? ? Do you remember when we first m

    Oh my gosh! That's...that's SO SAD!!! Why did he have to die?? WHY!?!

    *bursts into tears*

    Devastatingly amazing fic.

    ?I ? ? he struggled to find the breath to speak ? ? Do you remember when we first met??

    Her mind moved sluggishly and her mouth even more so. ?Yes.? She cleared her throat and forced a strangled smile. ?You dropped into my birthday cake.?


    Aww, purely adorable! Such a sweet way for them to meet!

    KS: IT WAS BRILLIANT HO SHE WOKE UP, BUT IT WASN'T JUST A DREAM!!!!!! YOU ARE SO GOOD AT GIVING PEOPLE FALSE HOPE, GODDESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    thanks :D i'm not so sure i interpreted that part of the song right, but i thought it made sense, so i added it :p

    Why is it that only 3 books have ever made me cry, but TFN stories do it to me so frequently?

    probably because published stories have to be bought by people, and generally people don't want tear-inducing things :p whereas on TFN you can write whatever you want and not worry about whether someone will pay $10 to read your story :p

    EJM: *hands EJM a kleenex*

    Aww, purely adorable! Such a sweet way for them to meet!

    *if i ever finish it* i'll be posting that viggie too...man, i'm on a role with these viggie things...

    Jacen: thanks :)

    Princess: you read something of mine :eek: :D

    for a minute I thought he was alive.

    you have nooo idea how tempted i was to say it was all a dream...but it wouldn't have gone with this part of the song then:

    Closing your eyes to disappear
    You pray dreams will leave you here
    But still you wake and know the truth
    No one?s there


    glad you liked it! :D

    06: Poor Zekk... Poor Jaina... Poor me...

    [face_laugh] [face_mischief] i take it you don't want a sequel then? [face_devil] oh well, i can't write it anyway...not for a while at least...it would give far too much away :p

    unless...*looks at Shook, then at her viggie sequel idea* hm...well, i guess we'll just have to see, won't we? [face_mischief] [face_devil]

    *bows down to Queen of Angst*

    *shrieks*

    No, I'm not yelling no over the American Idol results (although you could construe my NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! that way...Clay should have won).

    I'm yelling because you killed Zekk and that's so much WORSE!!!!!!!!!

    *pulls hair out*

    I don't know how you managed to do it!! You manage to keep me on the edge of my seat with stuff like this!

    Way to go, girl! *gives her fellow fishie a high five*

    OK, that was so wonderfully sad I can't even write any sarcastic barbs...

    You know I am not a J/Z shipper in any form, but I was balling my eyes out for Jaina. I even felt bad for poor Zekk. You write wonderful angst!

    Too bad Zekk is dead, she'll have to find someone new :p

    There I did it :D

    Nice job Trickster!
