Palpatine studied Anakin silently for a few moments. ?I find that hard to believe,? he finally said, shaking his head. ?Miss Moore has been my assistant for ten years and I trust her?,? ?I saw it,? Anakin stated flatly. ?You were with Mon Mothma?? Palpatine?s asked incredulously. ?Yes,? Anakin sighed. He might as well tell Palpatine everything. He was going to find out soon enough. ?The Council was working with Mon Mothma to force Sly to reveal her true nature,? he glanced at Palpatine. ?We knew she was the one to alter Senator Zar?s security tape.? Palpatine clenched his jaw, fury beginning to build in him. The Jedi were getting too close. ?And?? ?And we set a trap and she walked right into it,? he paused, turning to Palpatine. ?I?m sorry Chancellor. It?s clear Sly was either the Sith Lord or working with him.? ?What does the Council plan to do know?? Palpatine struggled to control his temper. ?I don?t know,? Anakin answered honestly. ?I have to let them know about Sly?and Padme.? Shoulders slumping, Anakin headed towards the door. ?I?ll keep you informed.? As soon as the door slid shut behind Anakin, Palpatine let out a howl of rage. How dare the Jedi Council decide anything without his knowledge and approval! He would deal with their betrayal very soon. But first, he had more pressing business. Still seething with rage, he stormed over to his desk, pounding the intercom. ?Tafo, have my personal shuttle prepared for immediate departure,? he barked. Padme should be arriving at the detention center soon and it was time he dealt with her once and for all. Uh oh. Not good. Of course, if Anakin knows that Palpatine is trying to harm Padme, he MIGHT come to his senses. We can only hope.
