It had been a few hours since dawn and Mara sat bored at the dining room table. Obi-Wan had left and Luke had gotten himself into trouble with some Tusken Raiders. She pulled a piece of paper out of her pocket. She smiled at her lightsaber design she had drawn on there. She was never going to show it to Obi-Wan. He would pester her to make it. The complex design could double act as a blaster. A idea from a friend. She sighed, she missed her group. The Rebellion was a group of people fighting for freedom. She was part of the smaller groups but she enjoyed it. Much more than the time on Tatooine. Mara quickly stuffed the paper into her pocket as Luke came in with Obi-Wan.
"Luke" She mumbled giving a small wave.
"Mara, what are you doing here?" He asked her
"Truth or Not?" She asked the elderly Jedi sitting on the step
Some of the Truth, Not all. He said through the bond
Just the Jedi part? She replied
"I think Obi-Wan should share the truth" Mara stated.
Obi-Wan sighed and launched into the story containing the bent truth. At the end Luke looked at her.
"So you're a Jedi." He stated
"And all the time you've been here, it was for training."
"And Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen knew." Luke declared
"Actually, you'll have to ask Master Kenobi over there" Mara lied to Luke "Even I don't know the full truth"
Mara glared at Obi-Wan as he ignored her to watch Leia Organa's message.
"So Master Where are we going now?"
"Alderaan and Luke can come if he wants"
"But, I belong here" Luke stated
"Luke, I want to train you in the Ways of the Force" Obi-Wan replied.
Mara felt like she had been impaled by a dagger.
"But… Master you cannot have two apprentices" Mara muttered sadly
"Mara, I'm sure you are perfectly capable, I have taught you all I know"
"So you wish to send an impatient, stubborn, reckless Jedi into the galaxy?" Mara questioned standing up.
"Fine, I'm… I'm just going to go to my room" Mara turned on her heel and walked briskly out of the main room tears slowly slipping down her face. She collapsed into sobs onto her bed. A knock on the door startled her, she looked up. Luke stood there.
"Mar, you okay?" He asked using her nickname
She took a deep breath thinking of her reply, Luke got there first.
"I told him, I was needed here"
"You can get trained if you want, he never told me it was as much as a surprise as it was to you"
"I realised that" Luke chuckled bringing a small smile to Mara's face.
A disturbance in the Force made her sit up suddenly.
"Luke the farm, something's wrong"
Then everything went dark as a vision took over.
Smoke was everywhere, stormtroopers were marching towards Mos Eisley. A ship was flying out of the Spaceport being shot at by the Imperial Forces.
Then everything went dark
Mara woke up in the back of a speeder.
"How long have I've been out?" She asked
"A few hours" Luke replied
"And where are we going?"
"Language" Obi-Wan scolded
"And who was the one who taught me the word" Mara snapped back
Mara leant back satisfied, as Mos Eisley appeared in the distance.
