    Whoa! Didn't see that one coming. You write a mean cliff hanger -- which basically means, that was GREAT! =) But do post the next one soon.[face_praying]

    WWWHHHAAATTT???!!! :eek: Talk about arranged marriage (and divorce) indeed! [face_shame_on_you]

    Surely Luke and Mara will try their best to salvage the peace agreement now? [face_praying]

    Love the way you kept us guessing who Luke's drinking partner was only to reveal it was Obi-Wan Kenobi! :D

    I agree!! I say Luke and Mara just say "screw the governments" and stay married. Perhaps they could run away and settle on some nice little, backwater planet? I hear Chiss space is lovely this time of year. ;)

    I have faith that you'll work this all out. After all, you wouldn't want to disappoint all us fans would you? [face_praying]

    I don't believe it - it's "la plage de saint tropez" by Army of lovers.)))

    I did NOT see that coming at all!!!!

    Clever, clever RG, twisting the plot like that. I should not be surprised as your writing always keeps the reader guessing. I wonder what Luke will decide to do? You had a little foreshadowing on Mara's part going on...will they run off together? [face_mischief]

    Well done! =D=

    Awww, awkward!Luke

    ?Is there anything deeper than love?? Luke asked.

    Kenobi thought on this, ?The poets would like to think so.?

    That is lovely - so Obi-Wan.

    But divorce! Methinks Luke and Mara will not be agreeable to this.

    Briannakin - Exactly like a normal married couple... bbwwwaaahahahahahahahahahahahhaha

    dm1 - She's not going to be very happy she got left out... [face_not_talking]

    LVB - Be careful, it might freeze that way!!! :(

    mdylopez - Evil does equal Greatness! ;) [face_laugh]

    Valiowk - They are going to have to sort something out, won't they? Or just call it quits. And as for the drinking partner... too my that long to figure how who he was talking to.. LOL [face_laugh]

    the-Naboo-council - dropped that bomb on them... this is me after all... [face_devil]

    LoriLynn - That is a pretty good idea... as long as they still want to stay married. [face_whistling] [face_thinking]

    Clarizabel - Yes they can, it's so easy to get a divorce now adays! :p :D

    Piper057 - Sorry, never heard of them. :(

    Jade_eyes - Awe, come on, this is me!! [face_devil] There isn't enough evil in this story actually... [face_whistling]

    Jedi_Lover - Your answer to everything is more hot L/M action!!

    [hl=orange]Chapter 25 ? The Goal[/hl]

    ?In other words,? Bel Ibis added, ?congratulations kids, you?re getting a divorce.?

    Luke mentally paused at the word. Divorce. A marriage he never wanted in the first place, but was softly shoved into, would be null and void. No longer would he be at the center of attention. He could return to the Jedi and continue his quest for a better understanding of the force.

    He wouldn?t have Mara anymore.

    Would she still want him?

    The Lady was stock still, a complete mask of emotions, even Luke couldn?t tell what she was thinking or how she would react to the news. He desperately wanted to talk to her but couldn?t in front of everyone. Was she seeing this as an opportunity to get rid of him and not have to deal with figuring out her emotions?

    The Imperial shuttle landed, figures descending the ramp as they stood watching in an awkward silence. Grand Admiral Doruk, a large boisterous kind of man, approached them, scowling.

    ?You told them already?? he huffed.

    Bel Ibis simply shrugged, ?Thought about waiting for you, but you took too long.?

    Whatever banter, friendly or no, the two were about to engage in was cut short as Mara swiftly called to one of the lieutenants who were waiting in the background to be porters to the guests.

    ?Gentlemen,? she turned back to the group, ?you?ve had a long travel. Please, freshen up, eat if you must, we will then meet in the main conference room in two hours. Lieutenant Lavits here will help you with anything you need.?

    Mara didn?t give them a chance, she turned on her heels and with a long, quick, stride headed towards the exit, never once looking at him or making a gesture. Luke wanted to run after her but was still paralyzed by the thought of what she might say.

    ?I asked you to let us tell her together,? Doruk turned to the senator, ?as a courtesy.?

    ?Where was your courtesy on Ryloth?? bel Ibis shot back. ?Perhaps you should have thought of that before excluding her from such important talks??

    ?Gentlemen,? Anakin gently interposed himself between them. ?What?s done is done. I suggest we take the kind offer while it still stands, hm??

    The rival politicians glared at each other but both knew bigger battles were yet to come and backed down. As they turned to the lieutenant and called to the rest of their entourage, Anakin turned his attention towards Luke.

    ?You seem troubled,? Anakin stood in front of him now, bringing him out of his continually jumbled thoughts. ?It?s all over your face.?

    ?This? is a turn,? was the safest way he could phrase it. ?One moment I?m forced into a marriage, the next I?m being forced out.?

    Anakin raised one brow, ?I thought you?d be pleased.?

    ?I would be pleased if the governments could make up their minds and stop frelling about,? he snapped, raising his voice much to his annoyance. Frowning, ?Sorry.?

    ?No, it?s okay,? Anakin nodded slightly, ?it?s a rough time, for all of us. Nothing seems to be going to plan.?

    ?Yeah,? he shook his head, knowing what he needed to do. ?Excuse me father, I need to speak to Mara.?

    ?I?m sure you do,? the elder Skywalker said after a moment?s consideration.


    Mara was angry, really really angry. Boiling point angry. The kind of angry that makes even a normal person want to rip everything around them to shreds, starting with the pillows and ending with anything in the cooling unit that was water soluble.

    Thing is, she wasn?t sure what she was angry at more.

    She was excluded from such an important negotiation, again.

    She was being told now who she couldn?t be married to.

    She was going to have to divorce a man she was? was? who she liked? a lot.

    Everything she had been doing was for nothing.

    ?Mara?? Luke?s voice came softly from the door of her office.

    Stopping what she was doing she looked over her shoulder at him. ?Luke.?

    ?I?? he cleared his voice, moving forward in a light shuffle, ?I don?t want to get a divorce? but if it?s what you want??

    ?You think I want a d

    All I'm saying is if we had more hot L/M ginchy-shine fanfic reading on Wall Street this country wouldn't be in the financial mess it's in!

    Oh RedGold. That was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    EEEEEEEEEEEEE. [face_love]

    I love HBIC Mara, and yes, Luke is so very much Anakin's son. LOVED Anakin's thought that he didn't know if he should be petrified or proud about that. [face_laugh]

    And the end...well, that's one way to make a point! LOVE IT! [:D]
