O, with Sabine and Ezra
O. The stars or space.
Okay this is so fun to write…like I didn’t think I would be able to write but this is just a little fluff and sweetness and I just love it ah! It kind of includes a bit of stuff I want to write in longer fics, but it was nice to just write this. Thanks you so much for the request, I really needed this!
Also I totally didn’t listen to “Hey, Soul Sister” while writing this because it’s a Sabezra song for me now…okay maybe I did…hehe *flops*
Also, spoiler alert for “Legacy of Mandalore!” Hope you like it!
It was quiet aboard the Ghost, as it should be this time of the night. But Ezra couldn’t sleep. There was an emptiness in his heart. He didn’t realize how much he would miss her now that she was back with her family. Of course he was happy for her, but he had lost a friend, someone he could talk to about things that only teenagers could understand. All he wanted right then was for her to be back aboard the Ghost. But she wasn’t.
Ezra’s eyes scanned the stars in front of him as he sat on the seat of one of the Ghost’s gun - the very same gun Sabine had controlled the first time he had boarded the ship. Even though he knew Krowsnest was nowhere near their current position, he knew Sabine was still out there. Closing his eyes, he felt the Force around him, the comforting presence of the crew around him, but there was still an empty spot, as if the Force knew that something was missing.
Lightyears away, Sabine stood on the balcony of her family’s house, unable to sleep. She knew she was where she needed to be, she had a job to do, and she was with her family. But still her heart ached for her found family. The family that had taken her in and stuck by her through thick and thin. If she had known how much she would’ve missed them, Sabine doubted she could’ve stayed on Krowsnest - but she couldn’t change her mind now. Part of her knew she just needed time to adjust. Her body couldn’t go off of little to no sleep for too long. At some point the ache in her chest wouldn’t hurt so bad and her body would force her to sleep. For now, however, the loneliness was fresh. She couldn’t ignore it.
But the stars helped - if only a little. They reminded her of all her days aboard the Ghost. The black sky dotted by bright lights of planets. Somewhere out there was her family, and one day she would see them again.
