She'd never really heard him mention his childhood, but then he hadn't had to. And besides, for much of it, she had been there. With Anakin. Seeing the troubles that came with being the child of the Solos. And then Ben. And Allana. "I'm not them," her tone was soft but insistent. "I'm not your mother or your aunt or..." There was a catch in her voice before Tahiri made herself say the name. "Tenel Ka." So stupid, that she always hesitated to say her name, but Tahiri suspected that she always would. Allana's was easy to say, Jacen's wife was not.
"I promise you, I will always be careful, I just also promise I'm not going to stop being me. I won't hide away, I have something worth protecting now." And it was true, as scary as that was. This child, such a new concept, was already something she would do anything to protect. "And I won't do what she did. I won't push you away." She reached out and took his hand, only hesitating slightly. "We'll do this together and we'll make it work."
She didn't blame him, not even a little bit, for how he had been the past few days. He hadn't known, and there had been so much going on. He'd needed her, and she did intend to still be there for him in that way, even if they would have to, well, adjust slightly, given the new circumstances. "Relaxing I can at least learn how to do," she offered a half smile. "And you're right, we should at least talk to a doctor who is aware of what we are. Would Tam have that much of an issue? Really? I can always very sharply correct his misconceptions about you, if need be." Because really, evil, such a narrow term.
"Are you okay?" Her question was tentative. "I mean I know this is definitely not what you were expecting when I texted you."
