Fic: ‘An unlooked for gift.’  
Title: An unlooked for gift.
Fandom: Star Wars
Rating: (G)
Time Period: Between RotS and aNH: 6BBY.
Summary: Pooja is given an unexpected gift.

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

Back in 2009, ‘Tis the Season was begun and, as part of that ‘Tis the Season collection, I wrote ‘Tis the Season: A moment caught in time. It was a sweet story and I was thinking of it, which prompted the below to be written.

As of yet, I don’t know what’s on the recording; this was written spur-of-the-moment. All I do know, at present, is that Obi-Wan and Padmé will appear in the story. Just not yet.

“M’lady, please.”

Pooja stopped, turning as she saw the hooded aide hurry toward her. The hood fell back and she frowned; she recognised the woman but she didn’t know from when nor where. “Yes?”

The woman smiled, her brown eyes crinkling at the corners; her greying hair was pulled away from her face, hidden under a pale blue brimless cap. “M’lady, I had hoped to catch you before you left Theed.” One of her hands vanished under the cloak she wore and, when it withdrew, she held a recording. “When I heard of your appointment, I wanted to give you this.”

“... why?” In these days, Pooja knew, one had to be careful; no one ever knew when someone was watching, or listening.

The woman reached for Pooja’s hand, pressing the recording into it; her hands covered the one now holding the recording. “I knew your aunt, Senator.”

“Teckla,” Pooja breathed and the older woman smiled, nodded.

“I cannot stay but I know your aunt would have wanted you to know the truth of her life.”

“She was killed by Jedi.” A report Pooja had never believed.

Teckla squeezed Pooja’s hands between her own. “Watch this,” she quietly urged. “And know the truth.”

Pooja nodded and Teckla reached for the hood that had fallen, replacing it, and turned, not wishing to be seen away from her mistress’s side. Pooja silently pocketed the recording as she walked away.

I'm so glad that Teckla passed this on to Pooja and she got to see Padme and Obi-Wan together ♥ Beautiful!

We've yet to see what's on the recording mentioned in the prose above. The 2009 story isn't connected to this.

Ohhhhh my bad. For some reason I didn't read that part properly and thought they connected :D

Sorry :D

It's not a problem! I'm actually writing the rest of the above story as we speak. =D

Yay! Can't wait :D

As a precaution? Have something nearby to fall on. I don't know if they'll be needed but better to be safe than sorry. ;P

Quite possibly!

I think it would, yes.
