Inspired by this post. Luke and Leia as each other’s childhood imaginary friend.
is an unnervingly quiet child. Beru noticed it from the beginning,
even though neither Owen nor Master Kenobi (Old Ben, she should call
him Old Ben now) have realized that it is something unusual. But Beru
looks around the room, like he does so often. He resembles his father
very much, but in this moment the look on his face is pure Shmi’s.
Shmi always looked like that when she was trying to feel something.
She had been able to do that, just feel things. Whether it was
knowing that Anakin was alive or telling Beru that Beru’s mother was
coming an hour before she showed up unannounced. Owen had always
considered it luck, or religious delusions, but Beru knows, has
always known, better.
