Chapter Text

Thank you for the lack of reviews. RIP Carrie Fisher.

 PS :I do not have a medical background.

Meeting Room

Although primarily a protocol droid, Threepio also recently had medical knowledge added to his brain and his sensors could tell the Princess had stopped breathing. Before he could yell ‘medic’, medical personnel had already burst into the conference room and attend to the leader of the Resistance. The cries and confusion in the whole room grew to a crescendo as members either scrambled to look at the Princess or shout irrelevant cries of ‘what’s happening?’ or ‘Is she dying?’

Just as Jess reached out to touched the dead figure, Rey yanked her back and as Jess gave her a quizzing the young Jedi Knight cried, “Duck!”. Jess barely responded as a razor-sharp claw miraculously appeared and attempted to strike her head. Rey cried duck again as she responded with a ferocious kick with her leg—her only original leg—at another clawed limb, this time a leg. Jess, having nearly dropped face down on the ground, yanked out her blaster but the few shots she shot did not seem to kill or even disable the creature that first attempted to grab her. “Rey, catch!” Jess tossed her other blaster and soon the girls were dodging firing at two, which quickly turned out to be four, literally thick-skinned aliens with multiple claws.

Rey managed to find a weak point by striking what looked like the lungs. Even then, that only paused the alien attackers kept swiping their claws at the girls.

“Clear the room!” Major Kalonia ordered and locked the door to her sanctuary. She had assisted Leia through her pregnancy with Ben aka Kylo and treated her injuries the after Napkin Bombing which damaged the New Republic senatorial complex. At both times, Leia got through the pregnancy, labour and injuries without much trouble. Now, the former Princess of Alderaan was definitely suffering, with her breathing apparatus at maximum power as the Princess’s lungs could barely move. Her heart rate was slowing down every few minutes despite the maximum dosage of the best drugs she had.

“Doctor, the General’s Neuroimaging results,” her medical assistant droid said. Although programmed to be just focused medical duties, the droid’s facial features—the droid did have a human-like face—showed immediate shock and concern for the leader of the Resistance’s condition. “Doctor, will she…”

Kalonia held up her hand and closed her eyes. She definitely wasn’t a Jedi but relied on deep meditation to help her through her job scope and personal life and to help her cure patients. She kept herself in this state for just under thirty minutes when the machines started blaring loudly and Leia’s body started jerking wildly.

The same time

Rey’s own body jerked as the Force told her something was amiss. As strong as she was in the Force, Rey couldn’t detect Leia’s worsening health and besides, she had to fight for her own life.

Bang! “I got one, I got one!” Jess cried out as one of the weird aliens finally dropped dead on the rocky floor.

“Yeah, thanks, watch it!” Rey pointed and Jess managed to duck as one of the remaining creatures tried to grab or scratch her. It was two verses three, but the narrow chamber of the old Jedi Temple did not provide an environment in the girls’ favour.

“Get back out to the Main Chamber, no, the ship!” Rey yelled and Jessika and she turned to face the remaining attackers. “Go!” She literally pushed Jess and closed her eyes. What was…ah yes, the story from Master Luke on how he faced off the Rancor in Jabba’s palace.

“Clear!” Major Kalonia shouted and shocked Leia with 200 joules using a defibrillator and repeated that several times. She finally heard Leia lungs to restart but the Princess still needed assistance from the machine and her heart rate was now rapidly slowing down. “Come on, Princess, General, stay with me, stay with me!”

Rey felt her body shake and a cry inside her mind but her focus was still on the creatures. That’s right, Master Luke used some femur bone to jam the Rancor’s mouth. But there wasn’t any mouth opening in these aliens and there wasn’t any bones…wait…Rey holstered her blaster and used the Force to dislodge one of the stones from the cave in one swift motion. She hurled the stone at the heart area of the nearest creature. Finally, it screamed, shook violently and collapsed on the ground. Just as Rey attempted to repeat the move, the whole ceiling started to rumble.

“Kriff,” was Rey’s last words as she bolted for the exit.

Kalonia dropped down to her knees. She had tried everything she learnt at medical school but Leia was still not able to breathe normal, her heart rate was still dropping by the minute and now her brain cells were no longer activity. The medical and nursing staff and droids were also showing signs of despair.

Rey darted out like a pod racer back into the Main Chamber but was shocked again to see Jess literally stuck to the ground and some other humanoid creature piling rocks around her feet.

“Ah, the bounty is here. You’re mind, Jedi girl and…” Rey tossed the Bounty Hunter against the wall and swept away the rocks around her friend’s feet. Jess was still stuck to the ground but with another extremely strong Force pull, Rey yanked her glued feet off. This was just in time as again the chamber’s ceiling cracked violently and collapsed.

Leia shocked violently once again as Kalonia and the medical staff held her down and treated her. However, Leia Organa, Princess of Alderaan, leading member of the Rebel Alliance, leader of the Resistance and wife of the late Han Solo, passed away. Kalonia had heard about how Jedi become one with the Force, so she was the only one of he medical staff who understood why Leia’s body suddenly disappeared after her eyes closed.

Leia’s death caused Rey to freeze suddenly and collapse down. “Rey! Come on! We’ve got to reach the ship!” Jess cried but the young Jedi was curled up in a foetal position on the ground. It was Jess’ turn to help and she dragged Rey out just in time as the whole chamber collapsed down. Facing the icy cold weather, Jess dragged Rey all the way back into their ship but faced another challenge as the controls wouldn’t start.

“Work, damn it, power!” She banged the panel and finally the engine started. Just as she flew the out into space, the monitor beeped, indicating another spaceship directly in her path.

“Oh, I have a bad feeling about this,” Jessika Pava muttered.
