He suddenly found the young man whom he helped on the bus sitting on a stone, covered his face with hands.
Obi-Wan came close to him: “I don't think we’ve been properly introduced.”
The young man started to sob when Obi-Wan offered his hands, he didn’t say anything until Obi-Wan gently talked to him, “I am Obi-Wan Kenobi.”
“Anakin Skywalker.”He forced a smile, “I’m sorry about the bus. It’s terrible, all the problems I’ve caused you. You should keep going, who knows what will happen to you next? ”He pretended to be relaxed.
Obi-Wan wanted to break the heavy air and he tried to amuse Anakin, “If you keep crying, I guess the forest will be burned by your tears when it’s evening”.
Anakin smiled for his humour.
“Why aren’t you on the bus?” Obi-Wan asked.
“It’s my stop.”
“You are waiting for someone?”
“No, no.” Anakin began to cry again, “a miracle,” he bowed his head, “He is going to kill me.”
“Listen, if this is about the broken picture frame——”
“It’s not about the picture!” Anakin kept on sniffling.
“Look, I know it’s none of my business, but if you would like to talk about it……”
Anakin tried to calm down, he took up a letter from his bag and gave it to Obi-Wan.
“I was not meant for the conventions of this world. I was not meant to be tied down. I’m a free spirit.” After reading this letter, Obi-Wan arched an eyebrow, “Who is the free spirit?”
“My professor.” With a lump in his throat, “He and I were……We were……” Anakin couldn’t stop crying, so Obi-Wan said to him in a soft voice, “I don’t think your father will kill you because someone broke up with you……”
“I will kill anyone who dishonoured my family! My father said that for a million times? No, no, a thousand times!” Anakin answered with his open eyes, and his voice faltered.
“It’s only his speech.”
