She was going to be infuriating about this. But he could be stubborn too. "My mother did it, ran into battle all through our childhoods, and look what kriffing examples we turned out to be to the world. I'm not saying you have to stop being you, just don't be her, or Mara or even Tenel Ka, leaving Allana with nanny droids or her cousins. I'm not saying it was bad, they made the best of it, but you don't have to. I'll make sure you have everything you want here. I'm just not letting that child grow up without at least one of us being around."
It was something he never really went into too deeply, not even around her, but his childhood, while happy had been fractured. It had been one of the things that had made him react to the world as he had when Allana was revealed to him as his. He didn't want her having the childhood he'd had. It seemed he'd failed on that too though.
"I want you promise me you'll be careful." he told her finally, sitting down beside her, eyes meeting her own. "Promise me you'll let me keep you safe."
Tired. Of course she would be. It would also be why she had asked him to take it easy on her. There he'd been not caring much about the toll it was taking on her because he'd needed it, because he'd needed her and her distractions and yet this. All of this. He hadn't known. "Take it easy then, relax, don't push yourself. As for the rest, well I suppose we'll need a doctor. I'd suggest Tam but I suspect he thinks I'm evil. Jones too actually. We could be new and different and attend a hospital but I'm not sure what a Force Sensitive child would bring out on their scans. Would it even be different? We'll keep checking up, even if you feel something that seems like nothing to us, just keep it in mind?"
And beyond that...
Beyond that Jacen didn't honestly know what to do or how to feel other than decidedly stunned. Wasn't this the point he was supposed to find a bar and consider it his new home? It didn't seem like the worst idea in the world.
