King had sensed his Aunt Leia on the island, of course, and despite any earlier objections about not wanting to get kidnapped he wouldn't take no as an answer when it came to wanting to visit her.

So there was a small, eager little blond boy bouncing up and down beside Tahiri as she knocked on Leia's door that afternoon.

"Someone here wanted to see you," she called.

"Aunt Leia!" King didn't waste any time hurling himself through the door and at her knees. "Wow, you're all little! Astral!"

Tahiri shook her head. "Leia, this is King Skywalker. Technically he's your great-nephew."

"Don't make her sound old, Mom," King chided.

"I got ice cream!" King crowed, which was pretty much a yes. "An' lotsa chocolate, and I got to go to classes with Mom and Dad and it was astral."

He squirmed happily into the hug, reaching up to throw his arms around Leia's neck. "Dad tried to tell me to let you take me to the zoo."

Um, bad things happened when people let her do that. Sorry, Leia.

King's eyes widened. "No, that's okay! I have to go home tonight!" he blurted out, rapidfire.

Tahiri groaned. "King, that's not nice."

Tahiri looked incredibly sheepish, and the tips of her ears were red. (She could face down eight Yuuzhan Vong warriors by herself just fine, but Leia would always intimidate her.)

"He says," she began then faltered, "that things always get . . . interesting when you watch him."

"It's not always getting kidnapped," King clarified. There had been a few high-speed chases around Coruscant. Those were fun!

"You don't do it on purpose!" King felt compelled to defend her. Sort of. "Sometimes it just happens though."

Plus King was taking it completely in stride; he'd said it the way most kids would relate that every time they visited a particular aunt they got a pat on the head and asked how old they were again.

He giggled. "Well, it is. It's 'specially ours."

. . . only the Skywalker-Solo family. Seriously.

"'course I am," King declared, and beside him Tahiri beamed with pride. "I'm a Jedi like Dad, and Mom, and Granddad and Aunt Jaina and . . ."

He took a breath.

"Lots of people."

Including her, but as the offspring of timeline-defying parents, he was perfectly aware that she probably shouldn't know that yet.

King had stopped himself from naming Anakin, and Jacen, too; it was the latter more than the former that was complicated and painful, and he'd inherited enough of Ben's powerful empathy to know it was bad whenever the grownups mentioned his name.

"Lots of it," he said, though his eyes widened when he realized she knew about all that. "I don't like the political stuff."

He got that from both his parents, really.

"But that's okay. You're really really good at it," he added with the certainty of a boy who was convinced she could take on all the contentious governments in the galaxy and win. Just as long as she didn't take him to the zoo.

Jaenelle had been out exploring and had gotten a little bit spun around, so she headed toward the first familiar Force-presence.

"Aunt Leia? I'm lost," she said plaintively.

"Thank you," Jaenelle said with a little smile. "There are so many people around right now. I don't always get lost!"

Because Jedi Queens should be compe...something. It was a big word that Daddy used.

"I saw Daddy in Jaina's class," Jaenelle replied promptly, "and Mommy at breakfast."

"Yeeeees," Jaenelle admitted, "but I like snacks?"
