A Jedi's work is never done - least of all Jedi husbands. Mara Jade-Skywalker is forced to watch, bored out of her skull, as Luke deals with one intergenerational problem after another on one of the New Republic's many worlds. After the thirtieth complaint is dealt with, the robed Presenter informs Luke that Second Agricultural Coordinator Kei Res Cirali is asking for Luke's immediate presence at the Karrish Mountain retreat. One airspeeder trip later, Cirali greets Luke and his "blushing bride." As Mara bristles at this, Cirali gets to the point: "What does one do when there seems to be no time for the important things of life?" Just what Mara was wondering, she thinks sadly.
He leads the couple into an elevator leading up to the "consulting room" - a vast, beautiful and deserted suite. "Happy second honeymoon, Mara," Luke whispers as he kisses her. It was all a setup to give Luke and Mara some badly-needed time together. Mara loves it, though she reminds Luke never to call her a "blushing bride" again…

This story occurs approximately 21 years after the Battle of Yavin.
