At this point, he was all that your hands drew on the paper.
Whenever you sat down and wanted to give your mind a rest and just draw, his face always popped up. And every time you decided to draw him yet again.
But how were you supposed to resist that magnificent face structure and the way he held himself? He was a stunning man.
When he and his troops first arrived on your planet, people were confused and terrified, but to you, it felt like you could trust them. All they wanted to do was to protect you from the Separatists.
You sat in your usual spot, leaning against a rock and watching the two suns slowly set, drowning your surroundings in an orange hue.
You bit the end of your stylus, trying to figure out how to place the next strokes of colour. This time you actually drew the sunset, something you’ve wanted to do for a while.
“What are you drawing?”
The sweet voice ringing next to your ear made you jump, looking at the source with wide eyes. It was him; it was Obi-Wan.
The two of you have talked a few times since his arrival, so you’d consider him a friend. You just weren’t so sure if friends are supposed to be on your mind so frequently. Whenever he walked around the small town, be it while he was on patrol or just on his own, you two often met and he started up a conversation with you. You were sure it was just a coincidence every time, but he knew better than that.
His smile made your nerves calm down, yet your heart was still beating rapidly in your chest. Thank the maker I didn’t draw him again, he would’ve seen!
“The sunset, it looks more unique than usual today..”, you smiled back at him, tearing your gaze from him to the sunset. Now that he was here, you weren’t so sure if you’d be able to continue with your piece.
Obi-Wan leaned closer to you, looking at what you’ve already brought to paper. His lips parted in awe; you were really talented. Just the few lines resembling the setting suns and your surroundings looked better than almost anything he’d seen before.
“I feel like something’s missing..” Your head whipped around to face him, slightly offended at his words. You knew very well you were capable of drawing a sunset, definitely more than he was. You raised an eyebrow at him as he eyed you carefully, he couldn’t help the smirk appearing on his lips.
“And what would that be, master Jedi?” “Well, maybe..”, he got up from his seat next to you, chuckling to himself. Was he seriously about to say this?
“A little more me.”
He walked in front of you, the sunset nicely positioned behind him. You couldn’t comprehend what he was doing, he wanted you to draw him? Were you dreaming?
Swiftly, he changed his poses, trying to look like heroic after a on battle. Neither you nor he could contain your laughter. “Hey! You don’t laugh at your models!” “Even if I tried drawing you, you’re moving too much!”
After a few seconds, your happy laughing died down and you put your utensils down beside you. “As much as I want to capture this moment, it just isn’t possible.”, you got up and joined Obi where he was standing, facing the sunset. The two glowing orbs were almost completely gone by now, making the million stars in the sky shine bright.
“Maybe you don’t always need to draw everything if you want to remember it..”, his voice was weirdly smooth, making a shiver run down your spine. “Living in the moment is something the young people enjoy nowadays, isn’t it?”
You shook your head with a smile. “You sound like an old man..” “They’re advice speaks the truth though..” “What do you mean?”
You hadn’t realized how close he was to you when you turned your head to look at him. His breath felt warm against your skin. “(Y/N)..”
His hands found yours, tugging gently so you turned to him fully. You swallowed the lump that formed in your throat, the beating of your own heart filling your ears. Surely, he heard it as well.
“Us meeting, wasn’t an accident, or a coincidence..” His gaze was trained on your hands that laid in his grasp, gently tracing the curves of your fingers with his own. “I believe we were meant to meet so many times..”, his smile made you chuckle. His words were so sweet. Heat rose to your cheeks, making your face shine bright in the darkness that had settled in around you two.
“If you feel the same way, I do not know, but whenever I’m close to you, I feel myself getting pulled towards you.” His forehead gently touched yours. You never thought you’d be this close to him.
The sunlight had been completely drained from the sky, only the shining stars and moons bathing you two in a soft light. It all seemed perfect, just you and Obi-Wan standing under the sea of stars, like no one else in the galaxy was there, like no one else mattered.
Nothing else did matter, because just like Obi-Wan said, uniting with you wasn’t a coincidence.
