Rey wakes up. She hears the sound of fire faintly cracking. Her eyelids slowly opening and her eyes adjusting to the surroundings.
She looks around and then she sees it. The lightsaber. Split in half. Then her sight focuses at a black figure on the other side of the room.
She groans as she gets up, trying to remember what just happened.
He had offer her to rule beside him and bring order to the new galaxy. She was shocked. She didn’t expect him to become like this. She thought after killing Snoke, he’d turn. Right?
She told him. “Don’t do this, Ben. Please don’t go this way–”
“No-no! You’re still- holding on! Let go!” His voice, booming in her ears. Her heart breaks. She doesn’t know what to do.
He walked closer and slowly reached his hand out to her. “Join me.” She looked at his hand. Oh, how easy it would’ve been to put her hand in there. They’d be together and she’d never be alone now. Yet, she didn’t take it.
“Please.” He pleaded softly, lips trembling and looking at her with those eyes that she’s started to fall for. She looked back at him, tears flowing down on her cheeks.
I can’t. I’m sorry.
She raised her hand and used the force to grab her saber but it got stuck mid-air when he tried to pull it back to him.
She’s limping as she walks over to his body. Debating whether or not should she wake him up, she decides not to because she knows he would to try to stop her from leaving and maybe would end up in another fight. She doesn’t want to fight him.
She kneels down, looking at his unconscious body with sadness and disappointment. Her tears are flowing again as her eyes find his face and her hand about to move his hair out of his face. Why go this way, Ben? I thought you would-
There was an explosion in the distance and the ship shakes a little. Rey pulls back her hand and is nervous that it might wake him up. But he doesn’t and she’s relieved.
She looks outside and her eyes go wide. The Resistance!
She quickly gets up and grabs the split saber. She makes a run to the elevator door. But not without stopping and looking back at him.
I’ll see you later, Ben.
She steps inside the elevator. The door closes.
