In the years afterwards, he would ask himself again and again how he hadn’t felt it in her: how his senses could have been so overwhelmed that the Force could not warn him. They replace his laser-seared heart with a bionic pump on board the flagship; the symbolism helps, a little, to divorce himself from his failure. He meditates, stretches himself outwards; builds himself a new lightsaber to replace the one she stole - this one blue, like starlight, rather than the green which would have reminded him too much of the trees on his home planet. And there comes a time, eventually, when he opens his eyes and still feels calm, and sees Aramis twirling in his chair on the flight deck, and Porthos laughing as he spins a blaster round his fingers, and thinks he has healed.
