Fic: ‘For each other alone.’  
Title: For each other alone.
Fandom: Star Wars
Rating: (M)
Time Period: Between AotC and RotS.
Summary: The waves were the only witnesses.

Author's Note: This is quick ‘n’ dirty (for definition see the F. A. Q.).

As with Ignorance lost, this is pure indulgence. Especially as it’s been sitting and fermenting in the back of my mind for weeks!

Silent witnesses, the waves gently washed onto the beach. He held her hands between his; blue eyes met brown, steady and true. A nervous curve of the lips and she ducked her head downward as slow, calming breaths were taken in and then, let go. He crooked a finger under her chin, a soft gesture that raised her gaze back to him.

No one knew they stood on the beach. No one would know, or hear, the promises. No one would know of the love shared.

“I promise to take no others,” she began in a surprisingly steady voice. “There is you, and only you, in my heart. No one except you, and only you, shall know my body, my heart.

“I ask for nothing and give everything,” she finished softly, her words almost lost in the quietly lapping waves.

Within his hands, hers trembled. He held them firmly, willing his strength into them.

He cleared his throat; a breeze swept in from the lake’s waters and he closed the distance between them. The woven lace fluttered under its cool fingers. His eyes did not move from hers. “I promise,” he calmly, clearly stated, “to take no others. There is you, and only you, in my heart.”

A slight pause; he brought their hands closer to him. “I promise to take no others. There is you, and only you, in my heart. No one except you, and only you, shall know my body, my heart.

“I ask for nothing and give everything.” With each word, what distance remained vanished. He leaned down, she stood on tiptoe and lips met, brushing against each other. Their hands fell apart; his arms enfolded her, pressed her body against his. Her arms slid around his neck. Greedily, lips parted. The veil fell to the white sand. Her fingers tangled in his hair. He suckled her bottom lip, nibbling lightly.

The waves, stirred by the strengthening gusts of wind, sought their ankles and contented themselves with the white fabric that shimmered under their embrace.

I've died and gone to Obidala heaven.

That was wonderful... :)

Thank you very much!

And I've realised, re-reading it, my curiosity's fired up about ho they got to this moment.

So there will be more? :D

It depends on how curious I get (which has been building since I wrote it)! I'm leaning toward 'yes, there'll be more. Sometime!'.

Thank you very much! I wasn't terribly certain if it would turn out very well and I'm relieved to know it has.

Words can't describe how much I love this ♥

Thank you!

At the moment, I'm wondering whether I should explore, in any way, how did they get to this point.

This series, from beginning to end, was a throughly satisfying read. It pulled me in, caused me to hold my breath, to worry, to wonder, to sigh and, at the end of it all, I'm left smiling, and probably will be smiling for some time after.

Oh, by the way, you are now officially forgiven for breaking my heart with Chaos descends. ;)

Let's address this first:
you are now officially forgiven for breaking my heart
Thank you! I wasn't sure how this particular series would be received and to know that? Relieves me no end as I know it was well-received!

And that is all I can ever hope to achieve and knowing that I have with someone? Gives me the biggest grin I've ever had!
