Lost Hopes and Dreams

Disclaimer: These are not my characters, I'm not making any money from this. This story is just for fun.

Jaina, Jacen and Tenel Ka are 22 years old. Zekk is 25. Anakin is almost 21 and Tahari is 19.

Preface

Zekk paced the waiting room nervously. He had returned home from a long mission wanting to see Jaina more than anything only to find Anakin, the younger of his two brother-in-laws, and Tahari waiting for him. When he had asked what was going on and why they were there at 1 AM, Tahari had blurted out the whole story.

Jaina had gone into labor while waiting for him to return. Jacen and Tenel Ka had been visiting while he was gone and had rushed her to the hospital, then called Anakin and Tahari to wait for Zekk.

Now though, as he paced the floor of the waiting room, he couldn't shake the feeling that something was going to go wrong.

"Zekk, try to calm down." Jacen said, from where he sat next to his sleeping wife. Tenel Ka was also pregnant.

"Something is taking to long. I've been here an hour after you." Zekk said. He took a moment to glance at his other brother-in-law, Anankin, who was asleep on another couch next to Tahari. They made a cute couple. He then began to pace again.

"Is it suppost to take this long?" He said.

"I'm not sure but they'd tell you if something was wrong." Jacen said as he watched Zekk pace back and forth.

"I hope your right. Jace, I really do but I have a bad feeling about this."

Jaina stared at the celin as she pushed. 'Gods this hurts! I love Zekk but he's never sleeping with me again.' She thought to herself. Thinking of Zekk brought to mind pacing, though she didn't understand why. Jaina stretched out to the force and could suddenly sence that Zekk was in the waiting room, and he was pacing.

'Zekk, I'm fine. Your never touching me again but I'm fine.' she told him through the force.

* * * * * * * * * * * *

Zekk suddenly stopped pacing and relaxed, somewhat. For a minute Jacen just looked at him confused. Then he felt Jaina's presence through the force, she was in pain but she was okay. He figured she was alittle worried about Zekk pacing around like he was.

'Jacen, try to keep him relaxed.' Jaina's voice told jacen in his head.

'I'll try. I'm not sure it's possible, but I'll try.' Jacen thought to his twin. He glanced at Zekk, who had finally taken a seat but still figited.

'I'll try. I'm not sure it's possible, but I'll try.' Jacen voice said in her mind as Jaina brought herself back to what going on around her. She pushed again when the doctor said to and thought once again to herself. 'Zekk, your never touching me again.'

* * * * * * * * * * * *

Another hour later both babies had finally been born. Twins, the first a boy the and the second a girl. Jaina felt exausted. She looked at the two babies being held up for her by a nurse and smiled. At that moment she was hit by a terrible pain and her vision started to go dark. One of the doctors yelled something and everyone in the room began to scramble around. The pain increased and her vision darkened even more.

Zekk had fallen asleep in a chair then suddenly he senced terrible pain from Jaina.

'Zekk!' his eyes snapped open. Zekk stretched out through the force to Jaina just in time to feel her slipping away.

'Jaina!'He yelled out as his knees buckled beneath him and he hit the floor. He felt that a piece of him had just been torn out.

"Jaina, No." He whispered from the ground.

* * * * * * * * * * * *

Jacen felt the pain of Jaina's death and all he could do was stare at Zekk, who was curled up the carpet of the waiting room crying quietly and muttering,"No, Jaina. No." He was shocked.

'She's dead. Sith spawn, she's dead!' Jacen thought, still having a hard time believing it.

"Jacen?" Tenel Ka said, "Jacen, what has happended?" She looked worriedly at her husband.

"She's dead." Jacen told her.

"Who is dead, my love?"

"Jaina. She just died." At this Anakin and

Tahari looked up from where they had been trying to figure out what was wrong with Zekk.

"Jaya's gone?" Anakin asked. He and Tahari both looked surprised.

"She died a minute ago." Jacen said.

"But,she can't be dead.They just said she was..." He trailed off when a very sad looking doctor entered the room. The man looked around, spotted Zekk on the carpet and shook his head sadily.

"I'm Doctor Stevens."He said. Jacen remembered meeting him the day they all found out Jaina was pregnant. They had thought she was sick but had gotten a surlprise then too.

"Jacen Solo, your Jaina's twin brother, right?" Stevens said walking over to him.

"Yeah," Jacen said "and these are my wife Tenel Ka, my younger brother Anakin, his girlfriend Tahari adn you already know Zekk." He gestured to in turn.

"Yes, how did you...?" Stevens stopped and glanced at the lightsabers clipped to the room then said, "Oh, your all Jedi. I am sorry but your sister just couldn't make it.We tried to save her but she was hemmerging to badly."

"What about her baby?" Anakin asked sounding like ther are going to cry. Tahari hugged him, trying to be a comfort.

"What about her baby?" Anakin asked, he sounded like he was going to cry. Tahiri hugged him, trying to be a comfort.

"Both babies are fine but they are going to need to stay here for a few days so we can be sure."

Zekk had just managed to collect himself enough to stand and there was no mistaking the surprise on his face.

"Both?!" He said

"Yes," Said Doctor Stevens, "You are the father of twins. A boy and a girl."

Zekk's jaw dropped, he looked like he was going to cry out of sadness and jump for joy both.

* * * * * * * * * * * * *

Zekk was alone for the moment, at home watching the sun rise. A few hours ago he had become a father and lost his wife all in one moment.

Jaina. She was the only women he had ever loved, and now she was gone.

He was never going to see her smile lopsidedly at him again. Never see her beautiful face, or watch her while she worked on some part of the Lightning Rod.

'Gods, how am I suppost to keep living?' He thought sadly. He looked down at the holo he held in his hand. It showed Jaina and himself the day they'd graduated the Academy on Yavin 4. It had been taken just after they were knighted. She was smiling and hugging him in the holo. Later that night he'd asked her to marry him.

He shut his eyes as those memories flooded back to him. He had surprised her so much that at first he was afraid that she would say no, instead she had kissed and then hugged him. It had taken a while for her to manage the word "yes" but it had been clesr that she loved him as much as he did her.

He could still remember the way her hair always smelled so sweet, the way she looked in the morning at breakfast. The look in her eyes the first time he'd said "I love you".

"Sith spite! I miss you already Jaina." He said, not really talking to anyone. "Why did you have to die so soon?"

They had been married about two and a half years, though to Zekk it still felt like they had just been married.

And now she was dead.

He had been asked to name their children at the hospital, so he'd had to think. Their first born, the son, was Jason. After his uncle but spelled diferently. Their daughter, well he had given her the most beautiful name he knew. Jaina. He'd named her after her mother, he hoped that would later remind her of her mother.

A mother she would never know.

'I wish you were still here Jaina.'

* * * * * * * * * * * * *

"Jaina's what?!" Han cried out when Jacen told him the news. Leia though was silent.

"Jaya's dead." Anakin replyed for his older brother.

"How did it happen? When?" Han asked, he was feeling as if he'd been hit in the gut.

"She died this morning." Jacen said

"She died while in labor." Anakin said, neither nrother was any happier then their father.

"Did the baby live?" Leia said when she could finally manage to speak again.

"They're both fine." Jacen said, "She had twins."

* * * * * * * * * * * * *

Tahiri sat on the couch in Anakin's apartment waiting for him to get back. She knew Anakin was someone who enjoyed being alone but she didn't think he should be alone after his sister's death.

She had felt such sadness from him earilier that it pained her too. Tahiri yawned, she had been awake for along time. She laid down.

'Maybe I can get a few minutes sleep before he gets back'
