Her She often came to him but they were mostly flashbacks others were wraiths of guilt and accusation. this one was recurring he was running after her and she was always just out of his reach he could see her face emotionless her hair long and flowing with flowers clothed in blue robes her hand outstretched towards him clasping a necklace. This was his dream and he always woke having never caught her. This time however was different, he passed over a hill and the landscape before him changed Padme dissapeared entirely; the landscaope before him became a wall of shimmering light, the wall came closer to him until it engulfed him a tunnel formed in the wall and images appeared in the tunnel. This must be a force vision he hadn't had one since.... The image was one most unexpected: His son Luke he was screaming in pain "Father please help me" he screamed the image morphed from Luke to an all too familier image: The horrible visage of Palpatine he too was writhing in pain wreathed in lightning. the imaged morphed again. this time to....Anakin Skywalker? "Lord Vader" the dream dissapeared and his vision returned to that of of the infared and hud displays of his mask he was sitting crossed legged in his hyperberic chamber and he was aware of his breathing " Yes Jerrjerod what is it?" The moff swallowed hard he knew he must have interrupted something important " The Emporer's shuttle will be arriving shortly sir." Jerrjerod was met with breathing " Thank you commander" Jerrjerod bowed and left leaving Vader alone. He pondered the vision he just had; taking everything into account he weighed the life of his son over the Life of his master, too evenly matched taking into consideration what happened last time with Padme he decided....to do nothing whatever happens woud happen after all it was the will of the force.
