Padmé warmly greets Anakin as she walks into the sitting room of their apartment
Padmé walked back into her apartment she had been sitting outside on her private veranda for the past hour, reflecting on all the events that had unfolded in the last few days.

She knew that her future with Anakin was going to be difficult but she had faith that their strong 爱情 would get them through anything.

As she was getting nearer to the sitting room she took off her black 花边 披肩 that she had draped around her shoulders and folded it in her arms.

She was wearing a 花边 pale navy blue dress with embroidered jewels on it.

Her dark coiled brown hair was pulled up into two intricate buns high on her head a few inches above her ears. The rest she wore cascading down past her shoulders and back in elegant sweeping curls.

When she reached the entrance to the sitting room Padmé saw that Anakin was sitting on the right hand sofa he had a filmsiplast portable screen in his mechanical hand.

His head was down deep in his own thoughts as he always seemed to be lately. What could be troubling him now? Padmé thought.

She then took a deep breath and walked into the sitting room.

So as not to 显示 that she was thinking too seriously Padmé cleared her throat softly.

As soon as she made her presence known Anakin's head and mechanical hand both came up.

He looked at her and asked coldly "Obi-Wan's been here hasn't he?"

A bit taken aback with his 问题 but still she didn't allow herself to be affected 由 his cold demeanor.

Padmé took a breath and 说 calmly "Yes Ani he came 由 this morning."

She walked 由 the sofa and ran her hand along the back of it and across his neck, worriedly noticed when she did this that his neck muscles were quite tense it was as if he expected them to get into a physical fight.

She shook off this concern at once. It's the stress he's been under there's no reason to get upset. Padmé then went into their bedroom her husband followed her.

He walked behind her briskly, almost angrily she felt.

Anakin then snapped at her curtly "What did Obi-Wan want?"

Padmé sighed quietly and 说 concernedly "He's been very worried about you,he says you've been under a lot of stress since you've got back form the war." She 说 this as she folded her 披肩 and and laid it at the foot of their bed.

After a 秒 Anakin 说 disparagingly "I feel so lost."

She asked worriedly"Lost, Ani what do 你 mean 由 lost?"

Anakin replied bitterly"Obi-Wan and the Council don't trust me anymore they think I am a traitor because I am the Chancellor's Representative".

Padmé shook her head and 说 reassuringly "Anakin that can't be so, they trust 你 with their very lives."

He turned his gaze towards their vast bedroom window and looked out onto the city scape for a few minutes.

Anakin then turned his eyes onto her once again and replied ominously "Somethings happening I'm not the Jedi I should be, I want more... but I know I shouldn't."

She went to him and laid a hand on his shoulder making him look at her.

As soon as his eyes were on her, Padmé 说 comfortingly "Oh my Anakin 你 expect far too much of yourself, 你 must learn to trust your abilities."

As through he hadn't heard her words Anakin put his arms around her extended waist.

He gathered her to his chest and stroked her bulging middle softly for a few minutes.

Taking a deep breath he 说 distantly "I found a way to save you."

Padmé looked at him and replied confusingly "Save me, Anakin what are 你 talking about, I'm not in any danger."

Anakin 说 fearfully "Yes 你 are, from my nightmares."

She replied warmly "Oh Ani, is that what's been troubling you?"

Anakin then took her face between his hands and 说 passionately "I won't lose 你 Padmé I won't, I 爱情 你 too much and 你 mean 更多 to me than anything else in this galaxy for me to let anything happen to you."

She gently took Anakin's hands off of her face and held them in her own.

Padmé then replied reassuringly"I'm not going to die in childbirth Ani, I promise you, nothing bad will happen to me."

He 说 determinedly "No I promise you, my angel." Anakin then kissed her intensely for a few moments.

After their 吻乐队(Kiss) Padmé rested her head against his chest for a moment.

She then lifted her head up and asked him hopefully "Tell me do 你 have time for us to spend together tonight before 你 go to another one of Palapatine's meetings?"

Padmé asked him this because the discussion they just had had left her afraid and uncertain of their future.

She had known that the nightmare he had about her a few nights 以前 had scared him but she had no idea it had scared him this badly.

She was terrified that they were drifting apart. I must 显示 him that he doesn't need to worry about me that I'm all right and I just want him to 爱情 me. He has to know that all I need is his love. Padmé thought with resolution.

He still hadn't answered her 问题 and once again that evening he seemed to be somewhere else as his eyes were distant.

Padmé wrapped her arms around his waist which snapped him out of his reverie and back to her as his blue eyes focused on her face.

Anakin smiled down at her his once distant eyes were now filled 爱情 and passion.

He then replied huskily "Yes Padmé I do have some time before my 下一个 engagement."

As soon as Anakin finished his sentence he kissed her and pushed her gently back onto their bed. He then carefully lifted her up so that she was on his lap.

Anakin then kissed her on the cheek, then on her neck and finally on her lips.

In that moment Padmé let all of her worries go.

She then put a finger to his lips and 说 teasingly "Well Ani 你 don't seem that stressed I mean if 你 can 吻乐队(Kiss) me like that 你 must not have that much on your mind."

Padmé then laughed for a few seconds.

Anakin smiled with 更多 happiness on his face than she had seen in quite some time.

He then 说 passionately " Well I'm always less stressed when I 吻乐队(Kiss) you, especially when we can 吻乐队(Kiss) for longer than a few minutes, do 你 care to oblige me?"

Padmé smiled softly and 说 seductively "Of course."

She then wrapped her arms around his neck tightly and leaned into him and continued to 吻乐队(Kiss) her husband with loving passion.

As they kissed Padmé still felt a twinge of fear for their life together and that of their unborn child.

Through as her mind was brought back to her Anakin 接吻 her she felt that fear lift and gave herself to one of the rare times she could be with her Anakin and their love.

As she felt the pure joy of Anakin's 接吻 the extent of which she hadn't felt since the first few weeks of their marriage Padmé thought happily to herself We aren't drifting apart at all if anything we are 更多 close now then we have ever been.

In between their 接吻 Padmé whispered to Anakin breathlessly "I 爱情 你 Ani,so much."

Anakin whispered back to her equally breathless "I 爱情 你 Padmé 更多 than you'll ever know."

No 更多 need be 说 as Padmé gave herself to the glorious moment and to her loving husbands embrace.
