The Force Brought Us Together

By VampireWithASoul

Romance

Blurb

Marriage was not unheard of, but not common. For Obi-Wan and Ayame, their union was prophesied long before either of them were born. Because children were not an option for them at the time, they each took a Padawan. Obi-Wan was given Anakin, and Ayame chose a young Triiani named Kamuro. When an old friend is put in danger, it sets the four of them down a path that none of them saw coming. Will they all come out better Jedi, or will one of them falter and fall?

10 Years Later

"But which was destroyed, the master or the apprentice?" Master Windu wondered. Ayame wondered the same thing. Then, her eyes fell on the Chancellor. He had the oddest look in his eye. She wasn't sure, but Ayame had a feeling that Palpatine was more than he seemed.

Her eyes snapped open . That dream again... she thought. It had been recurring for 10 years, ever since Naboo. Rolling over, Ayame Kenobi's hand absently brushed the other side of her bed, which was empty. She looked over and sighed. Obi-Wan isn't back yet, she absently thought, her mind still on the dream she'd had. With a groan, Ayame sat up, got out of bed, and went to the bathroom to shower. Passing the mirror, she stopped to look. Ten years had aged her slightly. Her brown hair was long again, down to the small of her back. Her hazel eyes now looked weary and worn, and there was a new scar on the left side of her face from a mission in the Outer Rim. She absently traced it with her left hand, and a glint of silver caught her eye. On her left ring finger was a small band of silver next to another one with a small diamond set in it. This made her smile. That's right, it was 10 years ago today, she reminisced with a smile. As Ayame got into the shower, her mind turned to that happy day.

A ceremony in the Jedi Temple was not uncommon, but a ceremony involving two Jedi getting married? That was a rarity. It was rare enough that the Chancellor ordered Corescant security to patrol the temple to keep away prying eyes. Several Jedi were also stationed around the temple to help dissuade dangerous parties. Inside, in the main hall, banners and flowers adorned the massive columns. Masters and Knights lined the main walkway, and Master Yoda stood at the end of the hall with Obi-Wan. Two younglings stood at the other end, waiting for the signal. Behind them was Ayame, escorted by Masters Adi Gallia and Shaak Ti. At the given signal, the start of a song from Ayame's homeworld of Corellia, the younglings lead the slow walk down the aisle. The bride and groom wore nothing extravagant. The couple had agreed on simplicity, choosing their uniforms as their bridal wear. As Ayame made her way down the aisle, the Masters and Knights presented arms. A pattern of green and blue sabers marked her trail, but her eyes were glued on Obi-Wan, a smile adorning her face. Reaching Obi-Wan and Master Yoda, Obi-Wan offered his hand to Ayame. She accepted and Obi-Wan led her to Master Yoda. The gathered crowd turned to face the trio, the honor guard extinguishing their weapons.

Master Yoda kept everything very simple, saying that the Force brought them together, and as long as their love remained strong, nothing in the universe could tear them apart. After this short speech, Obi-Wan and Ayame knelt. This also served as their knighting ceremony. Yoda conveyed upon each of them the title of Jedi Knight, and allowed them to rise and make their own vows to each other. Obi-Wan went first.

"Ayame, when I first met you, I didn't know what to say. You were a young girl who was far stronger in the Force than I. I admit, I was jealous of your good fortune in being chosen as Master Yoda's apprentice. However, after spending countless missions with you, I realized how much alike you and I were. I doubted my feelings for you, and fought allowing them to grow. I'm glad that was a fight that I lost. I swear to love and cherish you for the rest of my life. I will always be there with you, even if I am worlds away, and I will keep you in my heart well after it stops beating." After allowing herself to shed a few happy tears, Ayame made her vows.

"Obi-Wan, you were one of the most stubborn men I had met in my life...and you were so much like me that I couldn't stand it. I fought my feelings as well and, like you, I am glad that I lost. The Force meant for us to be together, so far be it for me to get in the way of the Force's will. You are my life, my love, and my soul, and I shall cherish you as such to the end of time." A moment of silence was followed by a gasp of the crowd. The couple was glowing with their connection to the Force. Before Yoda could finalize their union, Obi-Wan and Ayame met each other with a smoldering kiss, causing their glow to brighten like a star. When they separated, Yoda gave a chuckle and announced their union. The announcement was met with cheers from those gathered. Ayame looked around. Anakin was next to Obi-Wan, his signature crooked grin even wider than normal. On her right, Queen Amidala was smiling and clapping with the crowd. She was joined by Jar Jar Binks, the Gungan that Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan, and Ayame had met on Naboo. At that memory, Ayame felt a slight pang of sadness. She wished that Qui-Gon had been there to see this. She had expressed this feeling later that night, after the celebration had died down. Obi-Wan had embraced her and sighed, sharing her wish.
