    Luke meditated while he waited for the one noghri to bring the power fuel cells. He allowed himself to feel lost in the force, he followed the flow and suddenly found himself outside of Han and Leia?s apartment door. He felt fear come from Leia as she kneeled by the bedroom door. Han was on her one side keeping the blaster aimed at the door. Winter was standing off to the side trying to keep the twins quiet. He could see Lando Mara and his father near by. Suddenly the door flew open, Han and Leia shot at their attackers backing up towards Winters door. Luke?s eyes flew open looking up into the nightmare grey face, but that face had turned into a concerned friend. ?Is there something wrong son of Vader?? Khabarakh asked in concern.

    ?Leia and the twins are in trouble. Or going to be.? Luke answered truthfully.

    Khabarakh walked over to Barakha and conversed with the other Noghri, they both nodded and walked back to Luke. ?We will send word if it?s a true emergency, the Noghri people will overtake the star destroyer that is in dock and retake back the planet.?

    Luke shook his head, ?I can?t let you do that.? He looked at the two noghri standing over him. ?I felt that my father was nearby along with Mara and Lando. I?m sure they will be fine if something happened.? Luke finished with certainty.

    ?As long as your sure, because the Noghri people will not hesitate to act if any of Vader?s clan is in trouble.? Khabarakh said with honesty.

    ?I don?t want to see your people get any more hurt then they already are. I?m sure.? Luke replied with finality.

    Khabarakh and Barakha walked off and quietly conversed among themselves. Luke knew they would not hesitate to act but their peoples safety was clearly on Lukes mind.
    ----------------------------------
    Leia sat up and slid out of bed. Han stirred beside her but she didn?t want to wake Han up. She walked to Winter?s room and lightly knocked on her door, afraid she would end up waking the twins. Winter opened the door a few minutes later, ?What is it your highness?? She asked in concern.

    ?Make sure Han isn?t disturbed, could you check on the twins if they wake up? I need to check on something.? Leia answered with a smile.

    ?Sure Leia.? Winter replied leaving the door open a crack and going back to bed. Leia walked out of the room and opened the door to the apartment slipping on a bathrobe. She never felt her father go through so much torment before and it had her worried. She headed for the roof where she would surely find him.
    ------------------------
    Anakin was holding onto Padme tightly, he didn?t want to let go, he didn?t even know that Leia had walked up to them until she tapped him on the shoulder. He looked over with red puffy eyes, ?are you ok?? Leia asked in concern.

    Anakin shook his head breaking away from Padme preparing to deliver the dream he had. ?I had a dream that we lost custody of our daughter.? Anakin said with tears welling up in his eyes.

    Leia could not even imagine having to be forced to give up her children like that. She understood as a new parent that something like this would be very painful. Leia through her arms around her parents, she could not even imagine. ?We?ll fight hard.? Leia promised. ?What ever it takes.?

    ?I know we will.? Padme said, ?but the courts did forbid us to have anymore children. That we?ll be forced to give her up with no choice, no matter how hard we fight to keep custody.? Padme said with a grimace.

    Leia stayed silent, ?but what if later on you could regain custody? I mean what if she decided she wanted to go back to the biological parents?? Leia questioned with some hope.

    ?We?ll even fight the foster parents.? Anakin said feeling some hope.

    Leia looked from Anakin to Padme, a yawn escaping her lips, the twins have finally started sleeping through the night and she needed sleep in the worst way. She covered her mouth quickly with an apologetic expression. ?Its ok, you should go get some sleep.? Anakin said turning Leia around and pointing her in the direction of the elevator, ?

    heres a short post

    -----------------
    Anakin walked into Fey'las office feeling fear rocket through his system, this whole child thing was beginning to get to him, it was supposed to be a happy moment but thanks to the bloody courts, that happiness is turning into sorrow and heart break. "Master Skywalker, take a seat." Fey'la said his short hair bristling.

    "What is it you need to discuss now?" Anakin questioned meeting the bothan eye for eye.

    "As soon as Luke gets back I want to send the two of you to wayland right away." Fey'la answered setting his hands on the desk in front of him.

    "I see." Anakin replied with a thoughtful look. "Alright then, anything else?"

    "No that is all." Fey'la replied dismissing Anakin with a wave of his hand. Anakin stood up and took his leave of the office, just wanting to get back to Padme, he had to leave her to her morning sickness and he should be there instead of here, Padme should not have to go through this alone a second time. He picked up his pace running for their apartment.
    --------------------------
    Luke walked out from under his x-wing, he just got finished putting in the new cells and she was ready to fly home again. Luke looked back towards the Noghri who had risked their necks for him, "as soon as the destroyer leaves I will be ready to take off soon after."

    Both Noghri nodded acknowledging his words. "We will have an escort for when you are ready to leave."

    "Thank you."
    -------------------------
    Karrde looked out the window of the Wild Karrde waiting for Mazzic to pull what ever they had in mind. "Hey Boss, so what are they planning on doing?" Aves asked from sitting beside Karrde in the co-pilots seat.

    "I don't know, what ever it is its gonna be big." Karrde replied as he turned his head looking towards an unfinished star destroyer, stormtroopers where walking around outside the ship. Karrde shook his head while focusing closer on it as he realized they weren't regular stormtroopers, "its not armor they're putting on, its detonators." Aves said feeling awe struck lowering the binocs he had in his hand.

    "Well we know what Mazzics about to do." Karrde said feeling a bit of excitement mixed in with fear. Thirty seconds later the stormtroopers disappeared and there was a terrific bang, the star destroyer burst into flames.

    "Well I say its time to bug out." Karrde said starting up the ship, alarms and shouts beginning to fill the comms, he turned the ship around and took them to their entrance point.

    "I agree boss, lets beat it." Aves said shaking his head while reaching for the hyperspace lever.

    Latchon shouted over the comm, "picking up some new signals, ties headed our way."

    Aves pulled the hyperspace lever, dots turning into lines leaving behind several tie fighters in their wake.
    ----------------------------------
    Pellaeon walked towards Thrawns quarters, he had just received word that someone had blown up an unfinished star destroyer at the ship yards. He was not too happy with this new developments. He felt a brush of air on the back up his neck, "I don't have time to play these games I must speak with the Grand Admiral immediately."

    "They are not games." A voice mewed from behind him as he felt nostrils sniffing his wrist. "It helps me keep my hunting skills keen. You may enter Captain."

    Pellaeon gave a long sigh before entering the Grand Admirals quarters, there was no art work on display this time, but a map in the middle of the room. "Admiral, an unfinished star destroyer was blown up at the ship yards."

    "I already know Captain, and I know who is responsible." Thrawn answered walking towards Pellaeon his red eyes never leaving the Captains disbelief stare. "I have a new mission, gather your best troops, they will be going to Coruscant to capture Leia and the twins, they leave as soon as they have debriefed."

    "What about the attack sir?" Pellaeon questioned with a frown.

    "The attack is still scheduled, but it will have to wait until we have the twins and Senator Solo are

    Mara sat down in a chair with a sigh wondering when Karrde would come and pick them up, Ghent was busily typing away on his computer trying to find the Delta source, knowing Palpatine it?ll be something simple and over looked. The door opened and Mara turned her attention standing up as Padme and Leia walked in. ?Senator, Councilor.? She greeted each.

    ?Mara how are you feeling?? Leia questioned with a concerned look.

    ?I?m feeling much better thank you.? Mara replied politely. ?When can Ghent and I leave??

    ?Anytime you wish, we?ll see what we can do to find you a transport, but at the moment we?re tight on ships.? Leia said with a smile.

    ?Thank you Councilor Solo.? Mara said with a smile, ?I am wondering if you have a blaster I can replace mine with??

    ?Yes, we?ll see what we can do.? Padme said with a genuine smile. ?I?m not sure if we can find an exact replacement, your type is hard to find.?

    ?I have a couple of lose spares lying around the palace if you would?.? Mara began.

    ?Your free to find them if you wish.? Padme invited with a soft grin, ?If you promise not to shoot my husband or son with it.?

    ?I can promise not to.? Mara replied with a frown wondering if they picked up her emotions.

    ?Thank you that?s all I ask.?
    ---------------------------------------------
    Anakin walked into Maras room and smiled at seeing Mara on her own two feet again. ?Hello Mara, its good to see you well again.?

    Mara nodded turning her attention to Ghent who was watching everyone with acute interest. ?Thank you. Who found me??

    ?You don?t remember?? Anakin questioned with a frown.

    ?No I don?t.? Mara replied matching Anakin?s frown.

    ?Luke found you and pulled you in after the battle was done, I was afraid we had lost you for good.? Anakin answered.

    Mara smiled at Anakins concern for her, things really have changed in the past five years.

    Padme walked to her husbands side and placed a hand on his arm, ?so what did Fey?lya want this time??

    ?He wants me and Luke to leave soon.? Anakin answered looking towards Leia with a frown. ?Alright what?s going on??

    ?What do you mean??

    ?I mean this trip out to wayland?? Leia questioned with a frown, ?I know something is up between the two of you, too many trips to his office and you two usually don?t agree on stuff right away.?

    Anakin frowned while looking towards Mara, she shook her head in understanding. ?Its best left in the dark.? Mara spoke out loud, ?if the republic found out or got word of what happened it will bring the entire Republic down the bothan?s throats.?

    Anakin nodded in agreement as he felt Leia go cold, ?Maras right, it will lead to an inner war within the New Republic and that?s the last thing we need right now.?

    Leia?s eyes went wide as a thought struck her, ?the bothans didn?t?

    Anakin and Mara exchanged a look and nodded to Leia, ?they did unfortunately, they?re the ones who sabotaged the shield on Cassami, theres a list of who is involved at wayland, that is why I?m undertaking the mission so we can retrieve the list, and bring the ones involved to justice quickly and quietly.?

    Padme?s eyes widened in shock, ?I don?t believe it.?
    -----------------------------------------
    Luke walked towards his x-wing and looked up at Artoo, ?Artoo unlock the power couplings we?re leaving now.?

    Artoo gave a whistle in acknowledgement as Luke turned to his hosts. ?Thank you for helping me out, we?re even now.?

    ?It is our honor to serve the Lord Vader clan, but since you will be finding us a new planet we could never finish paying off this life dept.? Khabarka replied.

    Luke sighed as he nodded in understanding and climbed up the ladder to the cockpit, he tried getting the noghri to take this but he knew he it was a long shot, Chewie was just as stubborn. He looked up as two tie fighters came into formation and waited for him to lift off, smiling to himself he climbed in and took the x-wing off standby, it was gonna be a long ride home.

    Oh, no. I remember this. Mr. Prisoner is going to finger Mara. [face_shame_on_you] Wonder if she's going to end up on house arrest this time?

    Maybe Anakin will be able to intervene? Hopefully.

    *whacks Thrawn for his idiotic plans*

    Mara Anakin and Madine stood over the prisoners bed looking down at him with a hard stare. He noted Anakin was looking furious, the prisoner swallowed hard while licking his lips. "Who let you into the palace?." Madine questioned.

    The prisoner shook his head while lifting his hand to his mouth. Anakin noticed right away a pill inbetween his fingers, he quickly grabbed the pill with the force and lifted it to his hand. "Answer the question." Anakin said keeping his cool. "Who let you into the palace?"

    The prisoner looked over at Mara Jade and said in a hushed voice. "Mara Jade, The Emperors Hand let us into the palace."

    Anakin felt his temper rise a few degrees while Madine looked at Mara with a suprised look on his face. "Don't lie trooper. She hasn't been with the Empire since Palpatines death."

    Madine looked over at Anakin with some concern, he knew if Anakin was pushed the right way things could get really ugly in a short matter of time.

    Mara shook her head with why am I not surprised expression. "Don't lie, I did not let anyone into the palace, in fact I was in my room when they got here."

    Madine looked towards the prisoner then looked towards Anakin, "Can I talk to you for a minute outside?"

    "Sure." Anakin answered and followed Madine out. He turned towards Madine and knew what it was about before Madine got his words out. "Whats up?"

    "We can't take the chance, I have to put Mara under house arrest with an accusiation like that." Madine said biting his lower lip, this made him feel real uncomfortable at the moment, he knew how Anakin felt towards Mara. "I know how you feel about her, but...."

    "The trooper in there is lieing, I can sense it. Thrawn also knew about the entrances and the code, most of the high ranked Imperials did including myself." Anakin argued for Mara's sake.

    "I'm sorry but you know what happens when they make accusiations like this, remember they didn't hesitate to put Ackbar under house arrest." Madine said using the diaster several months ago.

    "Don't put Mara under house arrest, I can tell you now shes basically on noone's side, if I'm wrong then put me under arrest for my crimes." Anakin pleaded with an urgent tone.

    "Luke and Leia would not like that at all." Madine pointed out. "Theres no point, alot of people trust you these days. If we're wrong about Mara Jade, we will let her go." Madine said with a frown. "I'm sorry Anakin, but the rules are the rules." Madine said nodding off to one of the guards. "Follow me Lieutenant."

    "Yes sir." The Lieutenant replied following Madine into the room. "Mara Jade, with the accustion of treason you are hereby placed under house arrest, anything you say or do will be used against you in a court of law."

    Anakin walked into the room and looked down at the trooper. "Who let you in?"

    "I already told you." The trooper replied with fear in his voice.

    "Wrong answer. See you in interrogation." Anakin said, he turned on his heel and walked out of the room.
    ------------------------------------
    sorry it took so long its short I know. I'm hoping I can find some time to work on a longer post but at the moment I moved into a new town about a month and a half ago, and I still need to unpack everything.
