    Hmmm, I guess it has been 3 months. Well, not three months for me, I just found this like, 2 weeks ago. I was wondering if you'd stopped writing. Guess not, Yay!

    Wow! A post! :eek: Am I dreaming?

    This is great! You know, it's been so long that I don't remember if I've ever posted on this story or not. Oh well, I have been following this story and I thing it's fantastic. Great job, Tarado!

    I don't know if Luke will let Mara find him. I'm wondering what will happen when Leia and Han show up. Then Daddy Vader. It will be an interesting reunion.

    I guess it has been a while. I started to read the new post and realized that I didn't remember what the heck was going on. So, I skimmed the the past few posts to refresh my memory, and I realized something all over again....man, you're good! ;)

    *********


    The answer to Mara?s quiet dread came earlier than anticipated. It was early evening and she had combed almost every bar and hotel in the city, but had found no trace of Skywalker. So it was with a faint sense of defeat and a stomach tied in tight knots that, standing unnoticed at the dusty stone steps of an inn, she watched the all-too-familiar sight of Imperial shuttles and TIE fighters descending on the city like birds of prey. Vader must have been on the move much quicker than she had given him credit for.

    Mara bit her lip. The net was quickly closing despite her best efforts. She thought of her remaining search options and wondered fleetingly if it was possible that Skywalker was no longer here, but then dismissed the idea. Why would Imperials show up here if Vader could not detect his son nearby? And how else would she be able to feel the low-lying hum of his presence here? She resumed walking briskly to her speeder, determined not to be fazed by the arrival of Imperial troops. They did not know she was here and they would not find her.

    As she got in the speeder, she saw a message scroll across the console in red letters informing her unnecessarily that the spaceports were officially closed, effective immediately, by order of the Empire. All portals to the city were closed. No one without express authorization and a Z5R7 code would be permitted to enter or leave the city until further notice. The message began flashing again and Mara slapped it off.


    ******

    The man finally came back to help him after Luke had been sitting at the desk nervously for the better part of an hour. He was in the office of a travel agent, hoping to keep a low profile while trying to locate some means of transportation away from Kraull. He?d been miserably plugging away at the job for two days now, looking almost frantically for something that he could afford. A ship was out of the question, of course. But at this point, even a speeder would do. He only knew that he had to get out of the town before disaster struck.

    Every bone in his body seemed to scream at him to get up, to keep from sitting still. you can?t stay here, he thought. But he knew he had to. This agency seemed like his best bet so far. Even though his senses shouted for him to leave this place, he ignored them and fidgeted.

    ?I?m sorry to keep you waiting,? the man apologized, smiling cordially. ?We?ve just had a couple problems come up concerning your speeder rental.?

    A tiny warning bell went off in the back of Luke?s mind and he straightened. ?What kind of problems?? she asked cautiously.

    The man shuffled some papers, apparently not too concerned. ?Both spaceports and other entrances to the city have been shut down. We will not be authorized to rent out vehicles until they are re-opened.?

    The warning bells got louder. It sounded to Luke like water was rushing past his ears, but Luke forced himself to keep his calm. ?Shut down by who?? he asked. As if he needed to know.

    ?A couple of Imperial taskforces,? the man answered, entering something on his datapad.

    ?I see.? Luke struggled to keep his voice even despite the panic that rose instinctively in his throat. ?Does this happen often??

    The man looked up. ?It?s never happened before that I?m aware.? He got to his feet, handing the datapad to Luke. ?Incidentally, we?re required to get the names and identification of everyone here who is looking for a transport. You will need to remain here for a couple of hours until??

    Luke heard no more. He was already on his feet, moving towards the door.

    ?Excuse me,? the man called after him. ?Where do you think you?re going??

    ?You don?t know me,? the Jedi said with a quick wave of his hand as he brushed past the other. ?I was never here.?

    ?You were never here,? repeated the perplexed voice behind him.

    Luke was walking briskly down the half-empty street a minute later. His heart was racing
