    ~*See You Soon*~



    AN: Special Thanks goes out to my beta, Qwi and my Sith Master, Ish, who always seems to be on at the right time and at the right place. I would not have being able to do this without you two. I first thought of this fic when I was reading both a sad Dark Angel fic and then a happy Anakin/Tahiri one and they both actually came together to form what you know of as, this!

    Feedback is greatly appeciated and I promise to reply to everybodys replies or questions. I am also looking for another beta for this fic, as I'd like to submit it to TFN. If you are interested, please PM me. Now I think by now these AN's are long enough. So, I shall leave you to read. Also I may advise that I've been warned that you need a box of tissues when reading this fic.

    May The Force Be With You

    ~ If I should die before I wake, then Force forbid I should die before your eyes... ~

    ~*~



    His body twisted, first to the left and then to the right, and with it his pace slowed slightly. The blaster bolts glided past him, barely missing his sweat-soaked form. His breath came in short gasps, his mind barely managing to accomplish the task of running and breathing at the same time. Not only was he mentally tired, he was even worse physically. His legs were exhausted and a cold ache settled into his muscles. He had used the Force to hide himself from his attackers, and once they had passed him, he had moved in the opposite direction, but he knew that it was only a matter of time before they located him.

    He once thought he could never run this hard or this fast, but he'd now proved himself wrong. His boots hit the dirt, each step occurring in a matter of milliseconds. The rough old boots he wore did not adapt easily to the landscape of this planet, and for that reason they were slowing him down. It was not only the desert terrain that seemed to be affecting his senses, but also the climate.

    His face was saturated with sweat, signifying the brute strength and raw effort of his actions. Small, insignificant drops of sweat fell down both sides of his face. The drops would eventually continue on after reaching the end of his jaw line, dripping to the ground and mixing in with the dry orange dirt.

    He was constantly trying to maintain a steady pace, but wasn?t quite able to. Even considering he was a Jedi, he would never be able to escape from them. He already knew that running was useless. Any type of escape was useless. Well, unless he could get to the ship in time--before they lifted off.

    He?d told them to go. He'd ordered them to escape once he had first discovered that their enemies occupied this planet also. But they had refused to go and leave him there. It was a foolish emotion, that of loyalty. It was an emotion that would ultimately cost the lives of not only the crew aboard the vessel, but also the life of his soul mate.

    His soul mate...

    His shoulders slumped at the thought of her. He had promised her only a few hours ago that he would come back safe and sound, like he always did. What would become of his promise after his death? Would she ever forgive him for leaving her alone in this war-ridden universe? He'd asked himself this several times, and each time, the Force responded with the same answer.

    Though he was stubborn, and he would not allow himself to believe the answer that the Force provided him with. It was the only bad aspect of being soul mates--if he died, Tahiri would eventually die along with him. Could a person perish because of a broken heart? He shook his head, a large groan escaping from his lips. No, he knew Tahiri was so much stronger than that. She would continue on, to battle whatever forces of evil appeared. But how could the severing of their bond not tear her apart? She would be forever tormented in her dreams with memories of their times together. Whether or not he wished her to see them, he couldn't prevent them. He could hardly believe what he was saying. He tried to ignore the conflict of emotions he was experiencing. N

    Oh my God, I'm in awe. I'm not one for mush or tears, but my blood turned cold. It's midnight, and I'm sitting, shivering as I read that. I think that was one of the most beautiful things I have ever read. A reminder to believe in love...just what I needed. That was amazing. I can't say anything to do justice to that, but.......wowzers, I've been blown away, and not many things can say that they can do that to me.

    You have my deepest honors.

    LoneWolf89: Thanks so much for reading, thought everyboyd might need a tissue.

    Qwi: Thank you, my beta-reader, you were fantastic. Let alone any comments about me ;) Oh Force, crying again...I have that affect on people sometimes.

    ArnaKyle: Your reply warmed me to my bones, I haven't got much feedback which was like this. Blood turning cold, sitting in darkness, it just adds to it. I believe in love....I hope you do too. It's after all what I hope to find one day and last nigt I just wanted to write a fic like this, I felt compelled. Having a person's deepest honours is so special, thank you so much for taking the time to reply and boost my ego for future projects. I know hope to find another good beta and let this become the first A/T fic in TFN.

    People, please, anymore replies?

    Am [face_love]

    Wow. That was... wow. That was beautiful. And sad. Words cannot describe how good it is.

    I'm in the same position as ArnaKyle. Except it's later than midnight. :D

    And I'm crying. :(

    But I've got a box of tissues here! :)

    Oh my holy Force! This was amazing, Am! Really. The way you described Anakin and Tahiri's thoughts and feelings was incredible, awesome, and very realistic. The vulnerability and how Anakin was at peace before he died, and how Tahiri held him... beautiful. :) Great work. It was mushy, but not TOO mushy, which was very good. ;) I almost cried at the end (I'm saying ALMOST, because the only book I cried at was Quo Vadis from Henryk Sienkiewicz). :D But it was sad, but still very beautiful. :)

    Mar -- GOD THAT MEANS SO MUCH TO ME!!! I always wanted to do a Anakin/Tahiri fic, but it ended up being sad. The part where Tahiri held Anakin, actually did crack me up into tears. I'm trying to get this into TFN *fingers crosses* God, I cannot get over all the feedback I got for this...

    Ish -- OMG, that's such a comment coming from you! God, I love you guys.....makes me feel a whole lot better. Thanks so much!!!!!!!

    Leia -- Thanks, I know most things have been said, I don't even know how to reply to your amazing comments. Glad you decided to read along... :)

    I just stopped in again to reread it. It still made me cry. I don't think any EU reader here could stop themselves. That was truly brilliant work.
