Summary: “Is Mommy gonna die?” Luke asked in a tiny voice, his tone belying the fright he felt.
Author's Notes: I really hesitated about posting the material in the next few chapters, mainly because parts of it closely parallel some difficult things I've experienced in my real life. I rarely, if ever, do this, but I think in the end it helped me to write it, and it has a very real purpose in the fic itself. You guys can judge for yourself, I guess. I don't believe I could do any more revision on it short of cutting it from the fic entirely, and that's not really an option at this point. On the non-angsty side of things, I get really excited whenever I can write minor characters and bring a bit of depth to them, and that's what I've endeavoured to do with Bail and Breha. The comlink procedure, by the way, is taken from a passage in Karen Miller's novel Wild Space, and I felt comfortable enough with its canonicity that I decided to include it here. :) (And yeah, I know, evil summary. Heh. Sorry! Oh yeah, and pancakes = flatcakes in the GFFA. Just in case anyone was wondering.)
