    You Light Up My Life


    [image=http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk124/earlybird-obi-wan/forcenetart/dookuR.jpg]


    The handsome man laid down his chisel and hammer when he saw the small cloud of dust. Yes there she was; the young woman from the other expedition who liked to run and visit other excavations. She had visited him after their first meeting. He had shown her the bones and tusks he had uncovered. She had told him about her live as a Jedi healer and her hobby that had taken her to the inhospitable planet. She was like him an amateur archeologist and had asked the archivist if she could accompany him.

    He had just freed a piece of engraved rock from the mud near the entrance of a cave.
    His father was busy with a shovel.

    And he thought about his life on Serenno, living alone with his father after his mother died at a young age.

    So many nights, I'd sit by my window,
    Waiting for someone to sing me his song.
    So many dreams, I kept deep inside me,
    Alone in the dark, but now you've come along.


    Sure he found satisfaction in the work he did for his father, assisting him with the administrative work for the large estate. He loved going on hiking trips in the beautiful nature and he loved to visit museums and exhibitions of fine art. He was the one to care for the large garden and the rosebushes.

    But he missed his mother Margrita. She had taught him everything about the care for those rosebushes. She had inspired him to see the beauty of nature and had been the one to take him on those trips. The first rock he had shown her was a piece of quartz. Worthless but she had praised him. He was four years old.

    A new hobby of his father changed everything. With his father he had visited a large exhibition in the capital Carannia where ancient artifacts were displayed and that had spurred his father into action. Count Dooku had bought a new luxurious transport fitted with everything to make a stay on an inhospitable planet comfortable. With their aides ? loyal servants to the Dooku estate ? they had travelled to Korriban.

    And he had become inspired when ? together with his father ? he unearthed the first piece of bone, the femur of an Hssiss.
    His mother would have praised him.

    He had never found the love of his life. But there she was and she knelt beside him.

    And you light up my life,
    You give me hope, to carry on.
    You light up my days
    And fill my nights with song.


    ?A new dig??

    ?Yes and this is the first piece.?

    Beep trrr beep trrr
    ?Healer Dynarsk. I see. Coming.?

    And he saw her running away. ?Will she come back??

    - - -

    She came back.

    She rescued his father and him.

    He had worked days with his father to uncover the entrance of the cave. And inside the cave they had found the treasures.
    He had found the intricately carved piece and in freeing it a supporting pillar had collapsed.

    They were trapped and a call for help had her coming back.

    She had cared for the minor injuries.

    Another archeologist had helped them when they exited the cave to get back to the transport.

    The Muun humanoid had come with the plans that would change their lives.

    Rollin' at sea, adrift on the waters
    Could it be finally, I'm turning for home
    Finally a chance to say, "Hey, I love you"
    Never again to be all alone.


    He saw her at the top of the ramp. She had been caring for his father?s leg-wound. He saw her smile and he knew.

    And you light up my life,
    You give me hope to carry on.
    You light up my days
    And fill my nights with song.


    She flew in his arms.

    He gave her a soft kiss on her cheek and remembered the long compassionate kiss in the cave.

    She was meant for him.
    He was meant for her.

    ?See you again Anka. We will be home on 8 velona.?
