Bail Organa always known this day would come.

That one day, he'd have to drag him back from that desert.

But now that the time was here, he realized he'd been wrong. He wouldn't be the one to do it.

He was needed elsewhere, and it was only fitting that she be the one to go. After all, she was one of only a select few who knew how important her contact was. And she'd met him before, however briefly. That history counted for something. I meant a lot, actually.

Still, he worried.

He knew he shouldn't. This wasn't her first mission. She was experienced with this sort of thing, and she could handle herself in a fight.

But this felt different. There was so much going on. Everything was moving so quickly. Things were changing.

And she was his daughter.

He would always worry.

So he did the only thing he could. He sent a guardian with her.

And just as it had been with Leia, there was only one candidate for the job.

Bail watched him board the Tantive IV, then turned and boarded his own ship.

He shook his head a little as he did. He was getting too old for this stuff. He was exhausted.

Which is probably how, despite everything, he managed to sleep a little on the way to Alderaan.

Well, that and the fact that his chosen guardian was R2-D2.
