    *********************************************

    Luke and Mara fought each other viciously. They were now on top of the deflector relay room, the rain still beating down on them.

    Luke's attacks grew stronger and he continued to take the fight to Jade. Jade proved resilant and battled back. Their blades slammed together again and again, neither giving an inch.

    Luke pushed Mara Jade against a small wall. He raised his blade and attempted to cut her down. Mara moved out of the way and Luke's blade cut through the wall. Mara swung her purple blade at Luke's head but he deflected it and they quickly resumed their battle.

    They fought for awhile, neither one getting an edge. Finally, Luke applied more pressure, slashing his blade from side to side against the Emperor's Hand. Mara moved to deflect the attacks, leaving her guard open. Luke then jumped in the air and delivered a spin kick to Mara's head, knocking her backwards and to the floor.

    Mara quickly rised and remained still for a moment. Suddenly, a large piece of machinery came flying towards Luke at a dangerous speed. Mara was directing it straight at him. Luke brought up his hand to use the Force to stop it. Mara continued to try to push the machinery at him.

    Now the machinery lay in midair, with both Luke and Mara Jade trying to bend it to their will with the Force. Mara power was becoming stronger, as she moved the machinery more towards Luke. But Luke gritted his teeth and focused his power on the machinery. He was now beginning to bend it to his will.

    Mara Jade struggled to try to stop the machinery but suddenly it came flying back at her. She ducked as it narrowly missed her and crashed over the ledge of the building.

    Mara Jade jumped back up to her feet. Much to Luke's surprise, she turned off her lightsaber. She gave Luke a sly smile.

    "Very good, Luke Skywalker," she said. "Looks like I underestimated your abilities. You are indeed powerful."

    Luke just stood there, lightsaber in hand, staring at her.

    Mara just smiled again.

    "Does it have to be this way Sywalker?" Mara said again. "Fighting to the death."

    "Only if you insist on it Jade," Luke said. "I don't want to fight but I will to defend my family."

    "Yes, of course," Mara replied, staring at himm. "But really Skywalker, this doesn't have to be. You know deep down we are both after the same thing."

    "What would that be?" Luke said, looking at her curiously.

    "Power," Mara replied. "Don't fool yourself Skywalker, you know you want it. A man like you always have. Look at the Empire now. It is ripe for the pickings. The Emperor is an old man who's let the rebellion get beyond his control. Vader...or Skywalker, as he know likes to be called, is nothing more than a machine. He is barely human anymore. His failures have made him weak. Both he and the Emperor are ready to fall."

    "Luke," Mara continued. "Join me, and together, we will overthrow the Emperor and Anakin Skywalker. Together, with our combined strengh, we will take control of the Empire and bring the galaxy to a new era of greatness. We'll have more power than the Emperor ever dreamed possible."

    "Luke, you know this is right. I have foreseen this, a future between us. The two of us, ruling the galaxy side by side. It is suppose to happen. Look inside of you, deep down you know it to be true. Luke, join me and you will know power greater than you could ever dream possible."

    Luke stared at Mara Jade for a long time, considering her words. Power like that was indeed very appealing. Power beyond his wildest dreams was even more so. And he could sense a future between himself and Mara, a union of some sorts. Was it destined to be? Luke had to admit the proposel was very enticing to him. Perhaps...

    Suddenly, images popped up in his head. Leia, Han, Chewie, even the parents he barely knew. The galaxy itself flashed to mind. He could not leave this. More of all he would not leave this. Power was always enticing but he did not want it. Perhaps he would have at one time, like when Vader had offered

    Damn! Wow Pipes, my hat's off to you. I didn't think you'd actually have the stones to actually have Mara Jade be killed, especially in THIS forum. Prepared to be flamed. However, good show. Very good show.

    This is really good, Darth Pipes. About killing Mara, I don't have a problem with that. You have already shot the timeline to **** anyway.

    And in the case of that story, that's a good thing.

    I'm not ticked at Mara, just so long as DP and a-p continue their stellar storytelling. (sucking up for new story post? You can call it that... )

    Wow. Mara turned into Vader. Hm. Well, I guess this means they won't be getting married, now doesn't it? Wonderful story.

    Darth Pipes, I'm new to this forum and I have only read the posts you made on the first page. They are brilliant. I really have no idea how far into this story you are, but at this rate, I will read a page of this thread each day. Hopefully, you will still be going on when I get to where you are now.

    You have my huge admiration.

    Don't laugh, but I have just finished reading page two. This is such a great story, it has great situations, great conflicts, interesting relationships, and it really has a SW feeling to it. I swear I could hear the John Williams score when Jakked was going to die. Excellent!

    One question, how do you guys communicate Darth Pipes and ami-padme?

    Great addition DP.

    I, for one, do feel a pang at Mara's death but I'll live.

    Frankly, the story is fabulous and a dramatic death like that only helps add to it.

    OMIGOD THEY KILLED MARA! YOU B******S!

    Just kidding you guys, it's fabulous, though I would have liked to see Mara turned to the light and...well, you know.

    But I still love it! Good luck on finals and such -- can't wait for more!

    This is just too much suspence to handle. How does Amidala die? What's the consequences of the twins traveling through time? To solve the effects of time travel will vade... Anakin erase his wife's and Obi-wan's memory? All these unnerving questions left to be answered. Hopefuuly soon. Great job.
