    WHAT'S BEING SAID BETWEEN YOUR HEART AND MINE

    (snippets from some of Han and Leia’s conversations in A NEW HOPE and THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK)

     

    Leia: You came in that ship? You’re braver than I thought.
    (Heart: Would you take any chance to rescue me?)

    Han: Don’t knock it.
    (Heart: After seeing you, I’d carry you to safety myself if I had to)

    ****
    Han: I have to leave.
    (Heart: Please ask me to stay)

    Leia: I guess so.
    (Heart: I want you to stay without me asking you to.)

    Han: Well, your highness. I guess this is it.
    (Heart: I didn’t want this day to come.)

    Leia: That’s right.
    (Heart: Han, I’ll miss you!)

    Han: Well, don’t get all mushy on me. So long Princess.
    (Heart: Just show me you care a little.)

    Leia: Han!
    (Heart: Please catch up with him before he leaves)

    Han: Yes, Your Highnessess.
    (Heart: She came looking for you!)

    Leia: I thought you’d decided to stay.
    (Heart: I can’t bear not seeing you again.)

    Han: Well, the bounty hunter we ran into on Ord Mantell changed my mind.
    (Heart: There are things you don’t know about me yet.)

    Leia: Han, we need you.
    (Heart: I need you! I didn’t realize that until now.)

    Han: We?
    (Heart: Just say it once, Leia.)

    Leia: Yes.
    (Heart: I want to tell you how much I want you to stay)

    Han: Oh, what about you need?
    (Heart: I want you to tell me you need me, just not for the Rebellion.) 

    Leia: I need? I don’t know what you’re talking about.
    (Heart: That’s not the truth.)

    Han: You probably don’t.
    (Heart: I want you to realize it for yourself.)

    Leia: And what precisely am I supposed to know?
    (Heart: I want to hear it from your lips.)

    Han: Come on! You want me to stay because of the way you feel about me.
    (Heart: There…I said it…all the cards on the table….)

    Leia: Yes. You’re a great help to us. You’re a natural leader.
    (Heart: Oh, Han, why can’t I tell you what I feel?)

    Han: No. That’s not it. Come on…Aahhh-uh huh. Come on.
    (Heart: You have to realize what I’m trying to get you to say….even to yourself)

    Leia: You’re imagining things.
    (Heart: I’m not imagining…I know….)

    Han: Am I? Then why are you following me? Afraid I was going to leave without giving you a goodbye kiss?
    (Heart: I wanted to give you a goodbye kiss.)

    Leia: I’d just as soon kiss a Wookiee!
    (Heart: I want to kiss you!)

    Han: I can arrange that. You could use a good kiss!
    (Heart: I could use a good kiss!)

    ****
    Leia: I had nothing to do with it, General Rieekan thinks it’s dangerous for any ships to leave the system until we’ve activated the energy field.
    (Heart: I don’t care what the reason is, I’m glad you are still here.)

    Han: That’s a good story. I think you just can’t bear to let a gorgeous guy like me out of your sight.
    (Heart: It’s me who can’t let you out of my sight.)

    Leia: I don’t know where you get your delusions, laser brain.
    (Heart: I just had to tease you.)

    Han: She expressed her true feelings for me.
    (Heart: I wish you would, Leia.)

    Leia: My! Why, you stuck-up, half witted, scruffy looking nerf herder!)
    (Heart: What I really want to say is; you handsome, masculine, wonderful, desirable man.)

    ****
    Han: You alright?
    (Heart: I had to make sure for myself.)

    Leia: Why are you still here?
    (Heart: Oh, you are still here!)

    Han: I heard the Command Center had been hit.
    (Heart: I couldn’t stand it if I’d found you hurt.)

    Leia: You got your clearance to leave.
    (Heart: I don’t want you to ever leave.)

    Han: Don’t worry. I’ll leave. First I’m going to get you to your ship.
    (Heart: I want to make sure you’re safe.)

    Leia: This bucket of bolts is never going to get us past that blockade.
    (Heart: I know you can do anything!)

    Han: This baby’s got a few surprises left in her, sweetheart.
    (Heart: And so do I.)

    Leia: You don’t have to do this to impress me.
    (Heart: I’ve been impressed since the first time I laid eyes on you.)

    ****
    Leia: Let go…let go, please.
    (Heart: I don’t want you to ever let go.)

    Han: Don’t get excited.
    (Heart: I can feel your heart beating…. it is beating for me.)

    Leia: Captain…Being held by you isn’t quite enough to get me excited.
    (Heart: It’s all I need to get excited.)

    Han: Sorry Sweetheart, we haven’t got time for anything else.
    (Heart: But someday we will.)

    ****
    Han: Hey, your worship, I’m only trying to help.
    (Heart: I want to be near you whenever I can)

    Leia: Would you please stop calling me that!
    (Heart: I love it when you say my name.)

    Han: Sure, Leia
    (Heart: I love saying your name.)

    Leia: Oh, you make it so difficult sometimes.
    (Heart: You keep my heart and feelings in turmoil)

    Han: I do. I really do. You could be nicer though. Come on, admit it …sometimes you think I’m alright.
    (Heart: I want you to think more than that.)

    Leia: Occasionally, when you aren’t acting like a scoundrel.
    (Heart: I love it when you are acting like a scoundrel.)

    Han: Scoundrel? Scoundrel? I like the sound of that.
    (Heart: I want to be your scoundrel.)

    Leia: Stop that.
    (Heart: I don’t want you to stop.)

    Han: Stop what?
    (Heart: I don’t want to stop.)

    Leia: Stop that. My hands are dirty.
    (Heart: I like the feel of your hand on mine.)

    Han: My hands are dirty too. What are you afraid of?
    (Heart: I don’t want you to be afraid of me.)

    Leia: Afraid?
    (Heart: I’m only afraid of my feelings for you.)

    Han: You’re trembling.
    (Heart: I’m glad I’m having an affect on you.)

    Leia: I’m not trembling.
    (Heart: I’m lucky I’m not fainting.)

    Han: You like me because I’m a scoundrel. There aren’t enough scoundrels in your life.
    (Heart: I want to be the only scoundrel in your life.)

    This is original! And I love the idea of their original dialogue juxtaposed against the dialogue of their hearts. The mind is a drag sometime, isn't it? Thanks for sharing something different with us. :)

    I don't think there could be a more perfect presentation of what they're saying vs. what they really mean.

    Summary: Continuing snippets of Han and Leia's conversations.



    WHAT’S BEING SAID BETWEEN YOUR HEART AND MINE PART 2
    (STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE JEDI and from THE FORCE AWAKENS)



    Leia: Someone who loves you.
    (Heart: I wasn’t giving up on finding you.)


    Han: Leah!
    (Heart: My love!)


    Leia: I gotta get you out of here
    (Heart: So we can start our life together.)


    Han: That bad, huh? Where’s Leia?
    (Heart: I’ve got to have her near me.)


    ****

    Han: What’s going on?
    (Heart: I nearly stopped beating when I saw you so close to Luke.)


    Leia: Nothing. I just want to be alone for a little while.
    (Heart: So much is happening so fast, I don’t want it to confuse my feelings for you.)


    Han: Nothing? Come on. Tell me. What’s going on?
    (Heart: You told me you loved me, but now I see you with Luke.)


    Leia: I can’t tell you.
    (Heart: How can I tell you the one who tortured you is my father?!)


    Han: Did you tell Luke? Is that who you could tell?
    (Heart: Don’t shut me out, Leia.)


    Han: I’m sorry.
    (Heart: How can I love you and hurt you at the same time.)


    Leia: Hold me.
    (It’s your strength I need right now.)


    ******

    Han: Well, I suppose I could hot wire this thing.
    (Heart: Show her more of what you can do,)


    Leia: I’ll cover you.
    (Heart: Now I can protect the one I love.) 


    Han: I love you.
    (Heart: I think I have from the first.)


    Leia: I know.
    (Heart: Now it’s my turn to be cocky!)


    ****

    Han: You love him, don’t you?
    (Heart: I don’t want to hear that you do.)


    Leia: Yes.
    (Heart: But it is a different kind of love from what I have for you.)


    Han: All right, I understand. Fine. When he comes back, I won’t get in the way.
    (Heart: I will break…)


    Leia: Oh no, It’s nothing like that. He’s my brother.
    (Heart: Nice to know you are jealous, but you have nothing to worry about.)


    ****

    Han: You’ve changed your hair.
    (Heart: Is that all you have to say to her after all this time?)


    Leia: Same jacket.
    (Heart: I hope so. It covers the same man I love so dearly.)


    Han: No. New jacket.
    (Heart: We sound like we’ve just met!)


    *****

    Han: I saw him Leia. I saw our son. He was here.
    (Heart: I didn’t see the monster he’s become. I saw the boy we raised.)


    Han: Listen to me, will you? I know every time you look at me, you’re reminded of him.
    (Heart: I hurt, too, Leia, for I see you in him also.)


    Leia: You think I want to forget him?
    (Heart: He’s a part of both of us, Han.)


    Han: There’s nothing we could have done. There was too much Vader in him.
    (Heart: I hurt for our son. I would take his place if I could.)


    Leia: That’s why I wanted him to train with Luke. I just never should have sent him away. That’s when I lost him. That’s when I lost you both.
    (Heart: I can’t take more losing.) 


    Han: We both had to deal with it in our own way. I went back to the only thing I was ever good at.
    (Heart: I never left you, Leia, I just left where you were.)


    Leia: We both did.
    (Heart: They were just different things.)


    Han: We lost our son forever.
    (Heart: I don’t want to believe that.)


    Leia: No.
    (Heart: He’ll always be with me, just as you will.)


    Leia: He seduced our son to the Dark Side. But we can still save him. Me. You.
    (Heart: I have to believe that or he is lost to us.)


    Han: If Luke couldn’t reach him, how could I?
    (Heart: Don’t you know this is still tearing me apart?)


    Leia: Luke is a Jedi - you’re his father. There is still light in him. I know it.
    (Heart: Yes, he has Vader in him, but you fathered him…and you are good, so there is good in our son.)


    ****

    Leia: No matter how much we fought I’ve always hated watching you leave.
    (Heart: I hurt a little more and squeezed a little tighter watching you go.)


    Han: That’s why I did it. So you’d miss me.
    (Heart: I remember the joy on your face and our reunited love when I returned.)


    Leia: I did miss you.
    (Heart: Even with all the activity, responsibilities and demands, there was never a time when
    you weren’t on my mind.)


    Han: It wasn’t all bad, was it? Huh? Some of it was good.
    (Heart: Never thought it would be so good, you and I together.)


    Leia: Pretty good.
    (Heart: You took my breath away every time and you still do, even now, at our ages)


    Han: Some things never change.
    (Heart: I’m so glad of that.)


    Leia: If you see our son again. Bring him home.
    (Heart: We could have it all again, Han.
























     

    Leia: Someone who loves you.

    (Heart: I wasn’t giving up on finding you.)

    Han: Leah!

    (Heart: My love!)

    Leia: I gotta get you out of here.

    Lovely sequel to the first piece, even though it's bittersweet this time! I'm glad that it stops where it does, that said, and that it does not add any improvisations later on.

    Due to you my supply of handkerchiefs at home raises immensely. :_|:p;)

    No honest, this is wonderful. I wish people would always be able to talk straight from heart to heart.

    Sorry about the tears/tissues....I'll try to come up with another humor piece.

    Kindergarten kids do that though. I day that I am confronted with 5 days per weeks for more than 40 hours.

    But Han and Leia are grown-ups, who learned to hide the vulnerable part of themselves. Which you showed perfectly.
