Before him, the sand stretched in undulating waves. Shadows crept as the suns lowered; the sky filled with colours chasing each other across the sky. Light bleached from the sand and as darkness fell, it grew cold. He was one shadow amongst many and eventually he would be swallowed by the night.

It was at night he was comfortable and at night he was most uncomfortable. In the dark, he could hide from what had happened. In the dark, the shadows within his chest pressed ever closer and reminded him of what was gone, of what was lost.

Of what could never return.

Briefly, the sand before him blurred and he felt a hand on his shoulder. He covered it with one of his. The dark carried the scent of blossoms he knew could not be here.

you should come in

“I cannot,” he murmured.

An arm circled around him and the hand on his shoulder nudged him in the direction of his hut. come home

He closed his eyes. “I cannot,” he repeated.

would you leave me to sit alone?

“I already was not there.” He resolutely studied the sky; the suns were almost set.

my place is with you

Darkness fell; the suns were gone. He was alone.

I've a lot of catching up to do. Though I haven't forgotten all the Star Wars fics you have, just been super busy. :(

I want to say this has really tore my heart out to pieces...

That’s okay – all the stories can be easily found in the memories! I’d suggest reading allayloo ta nuv after reading any with sad endings as it’s happier.

OMG this is beautifully written. I really love your descriptive style.
Thank you.

Poor Obi-Wan, it's so heart-wrenching.
I’m now wondering if I should have put a ‘tissue warning’ at the start due to that aspect.

Thank you for reading!
