I was trying to rest on the small sofa in Anakin tiny home. In my hand was the holodisk of Anakin’s deceit. I turned over in my fingers, staring it.
“BOO!” a voice whispered next to my head. I jumped and came up. Ani laughed. “I’ve been working on my sneaking. I so got you!”
“Not funny. I could have taken off your head.”
“Nah! I would have ducked.” He jumped on the sofa by my feet. “What is that?” he asked, pointing the disk.
I quickly put it away. “A way to stop a bad situation, I hope.”
“If you get home, right? Where is home?”
“And you need a special ship get there? You can hop any ship and get there.”
“I can’t explain it, Ani. I really can’t.”
Ani looked at me fro a long, titled his head and says, “So what is the future like?”
My mouth dropped. “How do you know that?”
“Well, the ship you crashed in for one. I’ve never seen anything like it and I’ve seen a lot of ships. You knew my name, Jedi or not, and you looked and talked to my mother like you knew her. Or knew of her,” he said. “And you talk to me like you know me very well.”
I blinked. I had forgot how smart Anakin was as a youngling. He grinned hugely. I smiled back. This put a new light on things.
“What am I like in the future?” he asked. “Tell me, I’m cute.” I covered my mouth to hide the smile at his question. “Am I Jedi? Do I fly the stars? Tell me everything!”
“You are the best pilot in the galaxy. And yes,” I said, “you are very cute.” I skipped the Jedi part.
“Are we close?” he asked.
I sighed. “We were. I hope we still are.”
He looked confused. “How did you get here?”
“Wizard!” He smiled. “Really wizard.”
I guess it was pretty wizard. We sat there for hours and he asked me questions. Some I answered, some I didn’t. I vaguely told him about Vader, not using names or details, only that was a ‘friend’ and could he help me if he could find me. If he didn’t kill me first but I left that part out, too.
Ani looked thoughtful, and then he jumped up. “I have an idea. Give me your comlink.”
I did and he ran off to his room. After a few minutes I followed.
Anakin tinkered with my comlink. He said if he could get a slightly higher power source, boost the frequency, attached it to the Nav computer, set it to send a signal of my location back to the coordinates where I had come through the wormhole, then maybe my ‘friend’ would get it and come. If it did work, maybe Vader would send a ship through the wormhole to me and I could finally get home.
It was a long shot but worth a try. If anyone could do it, Anakin could, don’t you think?
