He stretched out farther into the Force, touching Tahiri again. She was in a dark place and he felt pain, or the fading of pain. He couldn’t tell where.
That startled him. His name rang like a H’kig chime, nothing fuzzy about it.
“I’m coming Tahiri,” He whispered.
“Anakin”…but the sense of the words dissolved into emotion. Fear, grief, hope. Wordlessly he reached for her, to give her the equivalent of the squeeze on the hand, and found himself instead in a tight, desperate embrace.
“I’ll find you,” he projected to her. “Just hang on.”NJO-Edge of Victory I by Greg Keyes
