Pandora had a lot to offer in the way of food and drink, and a lot of it was stuff that Han had never tried before. He was never a wine and dine kind of guy back at home. He really only stuck to the basics. Food was never too important. It was more about sustaining his body to stay alive.

Here in this land of people from all different universes, the variety of food you could try was near endless. And just out of curiosity, every so often, Han would go out of his way to try something new. It was really unlike himself to do that, but there was so many popular franchises that he heard people talking about, it made him want to try them for himself.

Today, Han found himself in a little coffee shop called “Starbucks.” He liked that name, it had a nice ring to it. But when he walked in and looked at the menu, it was so goddamn long it almost gave him a headache. Han didn’t know what “pumpkin spice” would taste like, or “caramel macchiato.”

So, after a lot of frustration and confusion, Han walked up to the lady at the register and hesitantly ordered a “cold brew.” That sounded alright. He was a little bit surprised when she asked for his name, though - until he realized that was how they identified you when your drink was ready.

”Solo,” he answered, and paid for his drink with credits. Han went and stood near the rest of the people waiting for their drinks. He already didn’t like this place. He didn’t like how everyone was almost too nice and he didn’t like feeling like a sheep in a herd. As he was waiting for his cold brew, he couldn’t help but glance at a man to his right - about Han’s height, dark hair, and dark eyes. He could’ve sworn he caught him looking at him.

”Solo!” the barista woman called out, placing a drink on the bar. Han realized she was calling out his drink, and began to walk up to get it - but the dark haired man was already there, picking up the drink, and was headed to the door. ”Damnit—“ Han muttered, and walked up to him quickly. ”Hey, I think you’ve got the wrong drink there, pal,” he said, tapping him lightly on the shoulder.

Kylo didn't know what he was doing. Didn't know why. All he heard was his heart pounding in his ears as he stood in line, in this stupid coffee shop, right behind his father. He kept looking around, arms crossed because he didn't know what else to do with his hands, trying to look at ease but probably more appearing like he expected an assassin to jump out at any moment and murder him. Was he sweating? Probably.

His throat felt dry when it was finally his turn to order, and he looked up–shit, he hadn't even thought about what to get– and picked the first thing his eyes found. They prompted him for his name, and he gave Kylo, with a bit of a stare. What did they need his name for to make him a cup of coffee? In the corner of his eye, Han had shuffled over to wait for his own order, and after Kylo paid, he followed suit. Took a breath. Walked towards his father, tried to summon words to his tongue...

And instead took the space a few feet away, staring at floor, ceiling, anything but the brown haired man. What was he doing? What did he think he would say? There was nothing– nothing, and he was better off getting out of there and going back to Revan's ship.

"Solo!"

He was so panicked, so desperate to leave, that name so subconsciously familiar, Kylo lurched forward and swiped the drink. And headed for the door, almost there, almost safe from that horrible sensation clutching at his insides, squeezing

Until a hand tapped his shoulder. Kylo halted, turned, pretended to look at the drink and reread the name even if he didn't need to. "Oh. I'm... sorry." He grumbled the words and thrust the cup to the man for him to take. Only then did he glance up, dark eyes meeting those of his father. Kylo swallowed.

He'd said he would do better. Try and make peace. This was it, in front of him, and he could think of nothing sensible to say besides: "...You're Han Solo."

As he turned around Han saw a little bead of sweat on the man’s temple and uneasiness in his eyes. Instantly, Han felt bad and thought maybe he should’ve just let him go. He obviously had somewhere to be. But the man was good about it. He reread the name and handed him the cup. ”Don’t worry about it,” the smuggler uttered, taking it from him, watching him.

He expected him to move around him back to the bar, but he didn’t. Until that moment, the man had been avoiding eye contact, but when he finally met Han’s eyes, déjà vu hit Han like a brick wall. It was like one of those times when you swore you dreamt before about what you were experiencing in real life. He knew he’d seen this man before, but didn’t know where.

”You’re Han Solo.” Han’s calculated face twisted into more confusion and surprise. He nodded slowly. His suspicions were confirmed: he knew this guy somehow. ”Yeah, I am,” Han responded, a sliver of wariness in his voice. He shifted his weight as he gazed at him, still trying to pinpoint where he knew this man from. It just wouldn’t come to him. ”And who are you?” he asked, straight to the point. He wouldn’t normally be this honest but there was something so familiar about him, he continued, ”I swear I’ve seen you before, somewhere.” Han didn’t want to sound like an idiot, the man had already revealed he knew him too. He just couldn’t help but say it out loud. They were obviously from the same home universe.

Kylo could tell as soon as Han looked at him that his father did see something in him. Something he would likely not be able to place. The son he hadn't yet met, hadn't so much as imagined. Who are you?

Kylo swallowed, his gaze falling away and glancing restlessly about the room for as much time as he allowed himself before he risked freaking the other man out. "We've met," he finally said, stiffly. "I'm... Leia's son." He breathed out slowly, quietly, trying to relax into that small truth.

Han hated being caught in such public places like this while trying to have a conversation. At one point to Han’s annoyance he had to step to the man’s side a little to let a lady walk through the cafe. But he watched him nonetheless as he answered how he knew Han.

Leia’s son. A little hurt jabbed at Han’s chest. He’d hoped to marry that woman one day, and to hear this guy say something like that stung. Han tried to hide his disappointment by raising his brows to act surprised. ”Oh, Leia’s son?” Did Leia know her son was here? Did she even know she had a son? If Han didn’t marry her, then who did?

He looked at the man more, and then saw it. He had her eyes and her mouth. More than that, when he looked at the man he could see a silhouette of her in his facial structure. ”Well… I guess that explains it,” Han said, frowning. ”But what’s your name? He was getting slightly annoyed. It felt like the man was trying to skirt around giving him all of the truth. He felt like a lot of people did that in Pandora.

He knew what that disappointment was in his father's eyes, but he didn't have the guts to correct what he'd said. Or offer more information into his lie. Kylo could barely manage a thought beyond the conversation happening at the surface, so he responded almost instinctively to Han's question. "Ben, sorry. It's..." He breathed out a sigh, glanced for the door quickly. "Ben."

He felt Han looking at him, not just to see him but to see her– in his eyes, his lips, the curve of his jaw. Did he see himself, too? Did he think to look for that? "She's here. In Pandora," he managed to follow up. "You should find her, if you haven't."

Han nodded at Ben’s introduction. It seemed a little bit difficult for Ben to speak—but it was hard for Han too, conversations like this in Pandora were always a little bit awkward. By now Han wasn’t thinking that much about Ben or how much he looked like his mother, he was thinking about the giant knot in his chest that hurt.

”Thanks,” the smuggler responded, frowning, ”but I know she is. I live with her.” Ben was just trying to help, and he was grateful for that. It was time for him to go home now though, and maybe think about things. Han stuck his hand out for a handshake. ”It was good to meet you, Ben, but I better get going.”

I live with her.

Kylo hoped the surprise didn't show on his face. Then... Leia hadn't told Han. About her "son", Anakin, as revealed to her by none other than Luke. Would Han go back, then, and tell her about this encounter? Realize something was wrong? His head spun, realizing the mistake in his lie. What did he do what did he do what did he do?

In the end, nothing. Too many fears, a too long hesitation resulted in a near paralysis until Han bid him farewell. To which Kylo stiffly nodded. "Right." He looked down at the outstretched hand. And lifted his, giving it a shake, trying not to think about it.

"Good to see you, Han."

Heart pounding in his ears, a tightness in his chest that felt like panic– but he was safe, it was over, he'd get on Revan's ship and not look back– he turned and left, completely forgetting about the cup of coffee he hadn't wanted in the first place.

Ben seemed decent enough. Han couldn’t believe of all the places in Elysium he could possibly be at right now, he’d picked the one place Leia’s son was at, too. Pandora wasn’t as large as people thought it was. Small world.

Han was frowning by the time Ben shook his hand and left, He could only think about the gloom that welled in his chest. He looked at the cold brew and took one sip of it. Immediately, his lips scrunched up in disgust at the bitter taste. He walked out the door, tossing the drink in the trash on his way out.
