    I changed the dialogue a little.

    *************************
    I sat in my quarters, fiddling with a half done device which would take me another two days to complete. I had always envied Maul's double ended sabre even back to earth days, but I was only inspired two weeks ago to begin building a similiar weapon of my own when I took the time to watch my master at work against a duelling droid.

    Soon, I would have this weapon and my power would grow.

    Constructing a this sabre was almost as easy as I had expected it to be. Considering I had already done two in the past, I figured that this would be a breeze. The only problem would be inserting the crystals, as usual. I had always hated that part. My eyes scanned the table top for a lateral and a horizontal directional coil and found them both. I placed them carefully onto their correct positions on top of the transfornic lens, then tweaked them slowly to lock them in place. The process was agonisingly slow since I had to get one to stay down so I could adjust the other, but both kept moving, so the seemingly simple placements took over half a standard hour to complete.

    When they were finally in place, I sighed and got up to stretch.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Four standard hours later, I leaned back in my chair to admire my almost complete hilt. I estimated another hour to finish placing all the parts, and another two to fit the crystals, then my weapon would be complete.

    Behind me, the door to my quarters slid open and my master walked in.

    "We will be initiating the landing sequence in less than a standard hour. It's time to wake your young friend," he said before spotting the hilt on the table. Darth Maul walked over and surveyed it with much interest.

    "This will be a good weapon after you're done with it, my apprentice. When the time comes, I will teach you how to wield it as a powerful and deadly tool."

    "Thank you, master. I would appreciate your guidance very much."

    "Right then. Wake Xeryn."

    I nodded and swept out of my room, heading down the corridor to Xeryn's. A creak of her bed and shuffling feet on the floor signaled that she had just woken. I depressed the button to open her door. Xeryn jumped a little at the sound, then relaxed when she turned around and saw it was me.

    "We're entering the Coruscant atmosphere. You'll be seeing Darth Hi - Sidious once we land." Whoa. couldn't let the nickname slip to her. Yet.

    She nodded.

    "Yo-" I stopped at my first word as I sensed the very familiar presence.

    Crap. CRAP.

    "Not them again. Not now." I muttered, my eyes narrowing.

    "Who?"

    "Nothing. Just get ready and be ready," I snapped, turning away to walk briskly back to my quarters.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    The Infiltrator descended into the hangar and lowered its ramp. The three of us entered the turbo lift and waited in silence as it shot up to the floor where Hideous was. Maul was silent because he didn't want to say anything, that was obvious. Xeryn didn't say anything because she didn't know what to say, and I kept quiet to maintain the atmosphere. I was thinking about the two people whose presence I had sensed earlier. Where were they? Did they sense me? It was quite far from the hangar when I got their Force signature, so I was hoping that they either didn't notice or wouldn't give chase.

    The doors to the lift slid open and we headed for Hideous' room.

    Lord Nevel gave a nod. "If we are to get some of the ideas in motion, I must start making calls now, before we reach Coruscant. Is there anything else, you Highness?"

    She gently shook her head 'no'.

    "Is there anything I can do to help you? All of my resources are at your and the Jedi's disposal. One condition though."

    She paused watching Nevel's face and held up a slendar finger.

    "If you find my hidden cache of Correlian Chocoalte, save me some." She gave the Advisor a smile, bringing some bit of levity to the situation.

    He gave the young Queen a broad smile, and bowed to her. He had been quite suprised at that comment. It reminded him of someone else.

    "It's clear we both have some extra preparations ahead. I've some contacts in the Senate who'll be happy to give our 'friends' some distraction for a while. "

    She bowed to the Advisor.

    "It will straighten out, I've a feeling it will."

    Lord Nevel nodded. "Thank you, you Highness."
    He quickly turned and left her Queens chambers. Once out into the hallway, he went to the control room to check to see how far out they were from Coruscant.

    "Coming into the Planets atmosphere now, sir." Lord Nevel nodded.."Splended."

    He turned and headed for his quarters. Once there, he pulled out his comlink, and began to put out several calls. Once he was finished with the ones on planet, he tried again to reach the other.

    Nothing.

    He frowned. Hopefully, he would know something soon.



    ---
    Lady Mavi woke with a start. She had drifted off to sleep at the console.

    Its beeping is what had awakeneded her. She leaned forward, and regretted the movement, her ribs complaining.

    She checked her console. She was an hour away, so why....? Aha. Her shields were begining to tax her systems. She quicly shut them off. She should not need them. If she did, then she would turn them on again. She was only an hour out.

    She closed her eyes, and flicked a switch to cloaked her ship, as she coaked her presence.

    She sat, watching the stars go by.

    Waiting was a bore. Watching the ships zoom past was a bigger bore. All those years spent training, yet I was still unable to harness the patience in me. Sitting around all day long was not the plan I had in mind. I stifled a mild yawn and blinked my bleary eyes to clear the gathering sleep in them.

    Ok, remember what you have learned, Yan Yan. Patience. Patience.

    Oh man, when can dull patrol be over?


    I lazily stretched as much as one could sitting down. I arched my back, waiting for the cracking sounds to follow to signal that my back had been fully stretched. Poised in that comfortable, yet at the same time uncomfortable position, I was about to relax when I caught something.

    That distinctive signature. The one that we have been tracking all this while.

    Wincing slightly as I slowly relaxed my tensed back, my adrenal glands had released much adrenaline. My mind was back on full alert. It was as efficient as any good strong cup of coffee.

    Thinking quickly, I hurriedly masked my signature, and reminded Clare to not give our positions away. Though it was inevitable that Saratis had already sensed a little of our presence, we could always hope that she did not take much notice of it. Furthermore, if she is unable to search for our signatures, she might think that it was just wistful thinking on her part.

    Are you in any sort of pain Yan?

    I think I should be the one to ask you that question. Think I twisted my back the wrong way just now. And less lip, more eyes.

    There they are now. Setting the ship down. Should we follow on foot or by flight?

    Unless it is possible to get less obtrusive methods of transport, I suggest we make use of those things sticking out of our pants.

    What? Our boots? What can we use them for? Hurl them at their heads and hope that they will get knocked out?

    I heard that snicker! Come on, let's get serious. Time for some shadowing. Boy am I glad I chose to wear this pair of boots. Imagine my torture if I had to follow them around on one of those heeled boots.

    Uh, you don't own any heeled boots.

    My point exactly.


    Clare flashed me an exasperated look, the one I used when she became too lame for me to handle. But we were both focused on the black robed figures winding through the crowd.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Clare - Your turn again. No complains this time!

    Xeryn's browser ain't working, so i'm helping her post whatever she wrote.

    ~~

    Kim - Noted, and edited accordingly :)
    -------------------
    I felt disturbingly apprehensive as the turbo lift sped upwards to our destination. I had no idea whatsoever where we were going. I was just blindly following the two Sith in front of me, and I really didn't like not being in control of my circumstances. Neither did I enjoy not knowing what was going to happen to me. Nevertheless, I blocked these uncertainties aside and concentrated on building up that mental barrier again. I felt safer somehow, with that small measure of privacy.

    My temporary calm was shattered again as the lift's door glided smoothly open and we started down the corridor to wherever Sidious was. We entered a room, and Sidious was there, his customary black hood drawn up and hiding his face as per normal. He stood imposingly with his back to the three of us, then slowly turned around and started walking toward us.

    I had to stop myself from physically recoiling, and even so my mental self was shrieking at me to run far, far away from here. Sidious unnerved me. It wasn't only his appearance, but his presence freaked me out big time. I could feel the darkness emanating from him, his Force signature radiated with pure evil. Evil, darkness...and power. I could also sense that huge reserve of power lurking underneath the seeming weakness of his physical person. Power that only the dark side of the Force could offer, when emotion and raw desires were not suppressed but rather controlled, and harnessed to one's will.

    The Force in itself could also be power, and power was very, very alluring.

    But I had to push these thoughts aside, for now. Maul and Saratis had stopped walking and both bowed low within perfect timing of each other. I followed suit, about a split second behind.

    Sidious looked past the two Sith who were slightly in front of me. "And where is our young friend?"

    Deep breath in. Deep breath out. I stepped forward, bowing low once more. "My lord."

    I could get used to this. It wasn't much different than back on earth, when you had to bow to every teacher you passed and act respectful, really, I thought detachedly.

    "Ah, Xeryn. The Force is strong with you." Well, duh, I couldn't help but think. "Your training will commence immediately, and you are to be apprenticed to Lady Saratis."

    Well. This was sudden, but somehow it didn't cause me to be as surprised as I thought I might have been. Behind me, I could hear her stirring slightly; and out of the corner of my eye saw her give a tiny nod, a nod so neutral it was almost frustrating. Her reaction betrayed nothing of her own feelings towards this new...development, neither could I sense any strong emotion, positive or negative, radiating from her.

    It appeared that my little turn with Sidious was over. Sidious said something to a nearby protocol droid and told me to follow it to my quarters. I acknowledged, stepping back and bowed, then turned and walked out behind the droid as I heard Sidious speak again.

    "Lord Maul..."
    -------------------
    I paced around the room I had been assigned to, finally letting my thoughts run wild within the confines of my own mind. What was I doing here?! Oh yeah, I was Sith now. I was a little surprised at how fast my memories of earth were fading, and how fast I had accepted this new life laid out before me. Sith. That had a nice ring to it. And the Force...I was a Force user now, wasn't I?

    Coruscant was a cold place indeed, in more ways than one. I knew no one, save for Saratis, but even she was not the person I once knew. I knew nothing about the galaxy, save the information I remembered from the movies back on earth. I was all alone in this vast world, where space blanketed each planet. Cold space, but even colder were the human emotions that currently surrounded me. I shivered once, then resumed my pacing.

    "Your training will commence immediately, and you are to be apprenticed to Lady Saratis."

    Ah. I didn't expect that. I mean, I didn't think Hideous would have that much confidence in me, yet. I wasn't terribly overjoyed when I heard it, but I wasn't angry or resigned to the task, either. It was just...unexpected. I nodded slightly in acknowledgement to Hideous' statement. Beside me, Maul heaved the smallest of sighs. Apparently, taking an apprentice wasn't going to be a wonderfully easy time. I didn't bother to find out how Xeryn felt about it - that was her problem, not mine.

    Xeryn was escorted out of the room, and the scene seemed so much more familiar with just Maul and I standing in front of Sidious, awaiting his speech.

    "Lord Maul, Lady Saratis, Viceroy Nute Gunray has successfully launched his attack on Naboo and is now in full control of the palace there," He started his briefing on our next mission. He never bothered to debrief us on our previous ones since we always completed them and he didn't care how we did so.

    "That's an amazing feat," I mumbled to Maul. If Hideous had heard the mumble, he didn't say anything about it. He would have probably agreed with it anyway.

    "The both of you will go to Naboo to supervise the matter. See to it that the Jedi who meddle in it are destroyed, because I do not want my plans to fail. Leave Coruscant in three days and update me frequently on the situation there."

    "Yes, my lord," we said simultaneously, then bowed and proceeded to walk out.

    "And Lady Saratis," he said in a warning tone that made me stop, "kill all the Jedi who stand in your way. I will not be as forgiving as I am now if you report back to me again having let another slip through your fingers."

    "Yes, my lord." I turned around and walked out, Maul falling into step with me as I passed him. I knew Hideous was talking about Samuel. I had been so close to killing him there on the street in Mos Espa, and yet I didn't. Actually, I had the feeling the sentence had a double meaning to it - the other being painfully close to what I was going to be hesitant about doing.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I walked into Xeryn's room and saw her reading the holobook on building a lightsabre. The components of whatever she needed to build one lay neatly on her table as she sat on her chair, attempting to fit two parts that wouldn't join together.

    "That book is a little warped: it teaches you the hardest step of building a sabre first. Put it away and I'll guide you through."

    Xeryn promptly switched it off and looked at me intently.

    There was something about her, I realised, that made me become more...gentle, if that was the word. Something about that loyalty that she had shown me back on Tatooine. Her presence dug through my cold, hard outer shell into whatever was beneath it, subconsciously helping me decide that I wasn't going to make her learn her lessons the hard way, but the effective way.

    For the next couple of hours, I taught her how to begin building her tool, which was even more of a test of patience then building my own. When she had gotten the hang of it, I switched the holobook on again and gave her the references to build to rest of her tool, then went back to my own quarters.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    A red blade flashed out of an end, and then another in the opposite direction.

    Finally. My wish has come true.

    In the darkness of my room, I gripped the longer hilt of my double ended sabre and swung it around, testing its unfamiliar balance while striking an invisible opponent. This sabre certainly had its limitations, but it had much more of an advantage as well. I swivelled my new weapon around the space that I had, becoming more acquainted with it as the seconds passed while admiring the beauty of the traces of red light the luminous rods left behind with each motion.

    Almost on cue, my door opened and Maul stepped in.

    "A sense of...victory...told me that you were done. You ready?"

    I nodded.

    In one motion, M

    I stared at the collection of parts needed to build my first lightsaber, then back at the holobook I was referring to. I had to admit, the novelty of having a holobook instead of the paper and ink books I was used to had worn off fast, especially since the instructions that it gave didn?t really make sense at all. How was I supposed to connect that part to that part if they very clearly didn?t fit together at all? (or so I thought) I attempted to attach the two parts another time with a barely-audible growl laced with frustration.

    "That book is a little warped: it teaches you the hardest step of building a sabre first. Put it away and I'll guide you through."

    I looked around to see Saratis ? my new master ? gesture to the holobook I was referring to. Ah, that would explain why I was having so much trouble. To say I was relieved would be an understatement, as I immediately switched it off and looked back.

    -------------------------

    It might only have been a few days, but to me it seemed like a lifetime as I worked almost non-stop, piecing part after part of my lightsaber together. Finally, the hilt looked almost complete, but for the two parts that I held. I looked down at the parts which had not fit together earlier on. Then I closed my eyes, swiftly brought them together, and was rewarded with the satisfying sound of a soft click as they joined.

    I crowed softly, feeling a certain measure of pride as I surveyed the near-complete weapon in my hands. That left only the crystals to be inserted into the metal cylinder. The Jedi, I had read, traditionally used Adegan crystals found exclusively on the icy world of Ilum, but the Sith used synthesized gems heated and cooled to perfection. Fitting the exquisite crystals would prove the most challenging part o building a lightsaber, as only a Force-sensitive individual would be able to fit the gems perfectly inside the metal hilt of a sabre.

    Eyes closed, I felt the Force ripple around me as I submerged myself into a Force-induced trance, further heightening my Force sensitivity at the time. Almost subconsciously, I folded myself up to a cross-legged position, crystals in one hand and hilt in another. Let yourself go, I reminded myself, and I did. Reaching out to embrace the darker side of Force, the side which contained more risks, more tricks too, but more power when the user accepted it, my hands moved, guided by the Force, and deposited the crystals into their right place within the hilt.

    Gradually disengaging myself, I opened my eyes and stood up slowly. The lightsaber was done, save for a few minor adjustments that I quickly made. Then I held my breath, gripped the metal cylindrical weapon tightly and thumbed the switch on.

    My lightsaber crackled to life, the energy beam racing outwards as if they possessed a life of their own, thrumming as it came into contact with the air. The crimson light emitted from the blade illuminated my face and I smiled once, then slashed forwards twice to test my new weapon. It was good. I could wield it like an extension of my own arm, it was light yet lethal.

    Regarding the deadly tool, I purred once softly.

    -------------------------

    I was learning fast, I could tell. In between the construction on my lightsaber and now, even after, intense training sessions were being squeezed into my time. Where about a few days ago I had no knowledge whatsoever of fencing with a lightsaber, now I could dodge, block, attack and whatnot with relative ease. However I still had a long way to go, as I was speedily reminded once again.

    I lunged forward, flicking my wrist upwards smoothly like I had learnt earlier, sending my red blade hurtling up smoothly, only to be thwarted again by Saratis? own double-bladed sabre. I parried once, then launched into a series of strokes I definitely had not been able to do a week back. What was even more unexpected was the sound of a lightsaber hitting the metal floor of the Sith Infiltrator, falling on its controls side and deactivating. And that Saratis was suddenly without a blade.

    Good posts Kim and Xeryn.

    Noone's an expert right away, unfortuantly it takes years to learn to handle it. ;-) I'm sure "I" had given myself a few hair cuts. Or lopped off the end of my Braid. :-D

    I think Rhiannon will have some catching up to do.

    Lord Nevel was in his quarters. He checked his messages, and smiled. Things were progressing quite nicely indeed. The Senate would be very busy indeed. A few new bills, and laws were guarenteed to keep the Senators QUITE busy. Especially those of the trade federation...and another. A few other messages also let him know, that other plans were succeeding. Excellent.

    Just then, he felt the familiar rumbles, and the sound of the thrusters engaging. There were landing, finally. The Queen would be taken to see the Chancellor immediately. The Jedi were more than likely heading for the chancellors office with her..and then the Jedi temple.

    This left Lord Nevel to take care of a few other items. His other comlink still had been silent. But he had to visit the senate, before he could stop to think about that.

    He gathered his items. Once the ship landed, everyone would be very busy indeed.



    -----


    Lady Mavi was almost there. She could just make out the system. And traffic was starting to pick up. She had managed to fix her ribs, so that they didnt hurt so much, but they still complained. She sighed. Soon, she would need to de-cloak her ship if she was to enter the main traffic lanes. She was glad to be back. She hoped the others had a smoother trip.

    She had been somewhat suprised that nothing else had moved to stop them. This made her come up with a few intersting senarios. She had tried to contact the other ship, but was unable to reach them. She figured her communications array had been damaged..at least her long distance one. Soon, she would be able to use her short range.

    She started preparing for entry into the planatary system, and landing.

    The maidens had departed leaving the monarch alone in her quarters. Arranging her skirts, she knelt down on the floor, hands resting on her lap, her head bowed and her eyes closed. She focused her mind to the task at hand, to face the Senate and the vile Trade Federation's representatives. She sat in the pose for several minutes, any nervousness ebbed away like the morning mists. The door chimed, Amidala stood to her feet, smoothing her garments before answering.

    "Enter."

    Captian Panika entered and bowed.

    "We've landed."

    "Good. Thank you Catian."

    She nodded, rose to follow the man. Outside the door, Lord Nevel and the Handmaidans fell into step around them. They disembarked the craft into a blazing sunny but cold Coruscant day. Typical of the world. Amidala resisted shivering but was thankfull for the multiple layers of clothing. Transportation was provided for them to continue on to the Senate buidling.

    The gaggle of royals, advisors and Jedi loaded onto a vehicle large enough to accomidate the large party. Amidala was sitting with a Jedi on each side of her. Lord Nevel and the Handmaidens across from her.

    "Lord Nevel have you heard from Lady Mavi yet?"

    She asked him, a measured amount of concern entered her voice. The female Advisor risked her life acting as a decoy while her own craft escaped without much damage. It was bravery worthy of the two Jedi.

    After he responded, the breifing on what to do next started. Panaka's plans on 'Queen transportation', Jedi's ideas on security, and Lord Nevel's information and contacts to make upon arrival. She listened carefully to what each had to offer, adding her own observations. The Queen was used to assimilaiting information quickly, and was very proud of the team of people. She had complete confidence in their abilites.

    The Senate building's distinctive dome loomed high above them, as their transport settled lightly on the pad. All of them disembarked, standing in the Coruscant chill. The Nabboian Queen stood gazing at the building, the massive silver dome shone in the sunlight. Large statues of slim statured humanoid beings guarded the walk way from the tranport pad to the entrance. Another building adjacent to the Senate build housed offices for Senaters, their representives, including the Chancellor's. It was their destination, and they had to go through the Senate building to get there. Amidala had to see Chancellor Valorum, and then, Senater Palpatine. She could trust Valorum but not Senater of Naboo and took Nevel's advice to heart. Obey the instincts.

    Three figures cloaked in dark cloth made their way through the crowd. Although there were quite a number of people on the streets, a path seemed to open up for the Sith as they walked -- almost glided, with a deadly grace -- forward. No pushing, no shoving. Even common folk could sense that these were not your regular people-in-black-cloaks and avoided them.

    Yan Yan and I had set our ships down and followed them through the crowd on foot. We allowed the crowd to cut off our view of them to decrease our chances of being spotted, and followed on Force senses alone. While their presences were muffled, they could still be sensed if you knew what to look for.

    We followed the Sith until we lost them outside a med center. Their presences had gone from muffled to blacked out entirely. Then we headed into a cafe a block away, masking our presences as well as we could, and waited.

    It took less than a couple of hours for them to emerge from under the 'Force cloaking' and head back to the Infiltrator.

    They came into sight when the crowd thinned out, then disappeared again into a small building. All three of them.

    Three. So I had been wrong about their needing to train the girl -- Xeryn -- on Coruscant. They were actually taking her along to wherever they were going, despite her lack of training. It was as if she was her responsibility. Almost as if she were an apprentice of either Maul's or Saratis's.

    I had no time to pursue this train of thought any further as Yan Yan ran for her ship and me for mine.

    It was not a minute before the dark, sleek shape of the Infiltrator rose up seemingly from out of nowhere, and shot into the sky.

    We followed, from a distance, until we hit cold space. I could faintly see the Infiltrator against the backdrop of black and twinkling white, before it disappeared in a flicker of pseudomotion.

    "Kayfe, vector lock," I snapped, thankful that Samuel worked the necessary equipment into his ship design. This trivial ability of the Raventhorn had not been a key reason I had chosen to use and adapt Samuel's design, but I was glad for it anyway.

    Kayfe tootled, and his words and the co-ordinates flashed onto one of the small screens.

    "Oh, this is nice," I muttered, reading what Kayfe had to say. "They're taking the Corellian Run."

    They could be heading for any planet along the Run. Unless, of course, they knew that we were following them and were intending to shake us off, which meant that they could be heading for any planet, full stop.

    I caught a flicker of the Force from Yan.

    "Naboo," her voice came on over the comm. "They're going to Naboo."

    "How do you know?" I asked.

    "A hunch."

    That was good enough for me, considering how much of an idea I had about the Sith's destination, and the high chance that it indeed was Naboo that they were heading to. After all, the time period was right and the crucial events were already occurring.

    "Alright, then. Kayfe, set a course for the Naboo system."

    Lord Nevel had just entered the hallway, as he saw Captian Panika entering the Queens chambers.

    Probably to report our status. The Handmaidens were also outside, so he carefully positioned himself within the general group that was waiting.

    Soon, the door opened, and Captain Panaka and the Queen stepped out the door. Lord Nevel and the Handmaidans fell into step around them. They disembarked the craft into a blazing sunny but cold Coruscant day. Typical of the world. Amidala resisted shivering but was thankfull for the multiple layers of clothing. Transportation was provided for them to continue on to the Senate buidling.

    The gaggle of royals, advisors and Jedi loaded onto a vehicle large enough to accomidate the large party. Amidala was sitting with a Jedi on each side of her. Lord Nevel and the Handmaidens across from her.

    "Lord Nevel have you heard from Lady Mavi yet?" The Queen asked him, a measured amount of concern entered her voice.

    Lord Nevel shook his head. "No, your Highness, but I am hopefull that I shall hear from here shortly. Thank you." He answered quietly. What he wished to try, he could not, with the Jedi present, so he just waited, his comlink sitting quietly on standby.

    The breifing on what to do next started. Panaka's plans on 'Queen transportation', Jedi's ideas on security, and Lord Nevel's information and contacts to make upon arrival. She listened carefully to what each had to offer, adding her own observations. The Queen was used to assimilaiting information quickly, and was very proud of the team of people. She had complete confidence in their abilites.

    The Senate building's shone in the distance.
    As their transport settled lightly on the pad, all of them disembarked, standing in the Coruscant chill.

    They headed for the Chancellor's office. It was their destination, and they had to go through the Senate building to get there. Amidala had to see Chancellor Valorum, and then, Senater Palpatine.

    Lord Nevel's eyes followed to where the young Queen was looking to. Ahhh. Chancellor Valorum, and Senator Palpatine. Now, was the time to be careful. Lord Nevel smoothed down his clothing, carefully watching around them, as the Palace guard kept the outer perimeter clear.

    Just as the Queen and her group were about to reach the others, Lord Nevel's comlink began to blink.



    -------
    It was a very tired Lady Mavi that landed the shuttle in a descrete area. As soon as she had gotten into Coruscant airspace, she had hit the switch, hopping that Lord Nevel would be able to receive her beacon. They would meet up later. Right now, she had work to do.

    She quickly left the shuttle, closing her cloak tightly around her. She dissapeared into the populace, hidden from all around her. As she moved, she began to place a few calls, to old friends.

    --------Jauhzmynn's point of view-----------

    Masking a personal Force signature could be done. A veritable Force chamelion, some anchient texts did mention the rare ability exsisting. Ever since the Jedi arrived, the ability had to be employed far longer then normal. Instead of a few moments, it was lasting nearly a standard day, and taxing mentally. A few times she thought the control wavered. They can't know, noone must. Not now, Not yet. The mental sheilds were reenforced in a way it would appear they weren't. Incase the woman was probed, they'd only see the 'mask' not the true being underneath. Soon her mental sheilds and her force disguse will be put to the test. The human only hoped her stamina would last until after the meeting she was going to endur.


    ------------------------------------------


    "You'er welcome Lord Nevel. Maybe she will contact you shortly."

    Almost as if on cue she heard the Advisor's comlink beep. Amidala Naberrie inclinded her head slightly with a small smile tugging the cornors of her mouth.

    She expected another attack whiel on Coruscant, but the trek intot he Senate offices was uneventful. She still kept her guard up. The Sith, the Jedi warned her about could attack in any fashion and any time.
    Moment slater they entoruage reached the outer offices of the Chanellor of the Galactic Republic. The secritary admitted only a few of them in. Having a troop of over ten indivuals would make even a large office feel cramped. Panaka, the Royal Naboo Guard and the handmaidens stayed in the outter chambers while the Queen, the Jedi and Lord Nevel entered the inner sanctum of the most powerful being in the Republic.

    The Monarch stood before Chancelor Valorum.
    The strain of recent events was showing on his kindly face, making him appear older then he was. The Trade Federation's incessant whining was graiting on his nerves. The other Senators were just as annoyed with them. He knew they were commiting a crime, but was powerless to stop them, because of no hard proof. He stood to greet Queen Amidala. He knew the risks she'd gone through, as well as all the attempts on her life since the Blockade happened.


    Now that the Naboo leader was in his office, he had the proof he needed. Would she be willing to help?

    "Queen Amidala, it is good to see you safe. Please sit, all of you."

    "Thank Chancellor." She responded with a bow, she introduced Lord Nevel, and the two Jedi with her, then sat, the Chanellor followed suit. He leaned forward folding his hands on top of his desk.

    "I read you messages. Indeed this is a matter the Senate must know about. And you are sure it is the Trade Federation for these attacks."

    "Yes I am sure. You will find evidence here." She placed a data padd on Valroum's desk. He took a moment to skim the data. He stood to his feet, walking around the office. According to the evidence at hand, Naboo's blockade violaited Republic laws. He assured the assembled group he'd take action to hault the blockade, and give aid to the hurting world.

    He also noticed the Naboo Senator was mysteriously missing from the meeting.

    "We have reason to belive there is an army poised for attack as we speak."

    Naboo female said. "There are peopelk working to stop them. We are not sure if they have succeeded, or if we are too late in coming to you."

    "You'er welcome Lord Nevel. Maybe she will contact you shortly."

    Almost as if on cue Lord Nevel's comlink beeped once, and started blinking. Amidala Naberrie inclinded her head slightly with a small smile tugging the cornors of her mouth.

    Lord Nevel gave a slow nod of the head...but was greatly relieved. He wondered why he had not heard from her, or could not feel her yet. She must still be blocking. Why? But, he had other immediately worries..and at least he now knew she was on the planet.

    Moments later the entoruage reached the outer offices of the Chanellor of the Galactic Republic. The secritary admitted only a few of them in. The Queen, the Jedi and Lord Nevel entered the inner sanctum of the most powerful being in the Republic.

    The Monarch stood before Chancelor Valorum. The strain of recent events was showing on his kindly face, making him appear older then he was. Lord Nevel would not want the mans job for anything.

    "Queen Amidala, it is good to see you safe. Please sit, all of you."

    "Thank Chancellor." She responded with a bow, she introduced Lord Nevel, and the two Jedi with her, then sat, the Chanellor followed suit.

    Lord Nevel stood in the back, behind the two Jedi. Qui-Gon knew the Chancellor, but would not say anything, until they could speak in private.

    "I read you messages. Indeed this is a matter the Senate must know about. And you are sure it is the Trade Federation for these attacks."

    "Yes I am sure. You will find evidence here." She placed a data padd on Valroum's desk. He took a moment to skim the data. He stood to his feet, walking around the office. According to the evidence at hand, Naboo's blockade violaited Republic laws. He assured the assembled group he'd take action to hault the blockade, and give aid to the hurting world.

    "We have reason to belive there is an army poised for attack as we speak." The Naboo female said. "There are people working to stop them. We are not sure if they have succeeded, or if we are too late in coming to you."

    Lord Nevel did not have to be Force sensative to feel the amount of pressure in the room. He was almost relieved, to not see the Naboo Sentaor.



    ---
    Down in the southern district, Lady Mavi knocked on a small door. "Cici?" she called out softly. The door slid open, and a womans face came to stare at the woman. "Do I know you?" she asked, looking hard.

    A soft chuckle came from underneath her veil. "Well I should hope so, you scallag!" Cici's eyes opened wide, and she grabed lady Mavi by the arm. "Get in here."

    Mavi gritted her teeth at being yanked in, but said nothing. Once the door was closed, she dropped the veil she had been wearing.

    "Is it time?" Cici asked her. Mavi nodded. "But first...lemme borrow your kit." Cici's nodded, as she moved to grab her medkit. As she came back into the room, Mavi smiled.

    "Thanks." Mavi worked slowly on her damaged ribs, and when she was finished, she gave herself a shot. It felt MUCH better now. Cici helped, and then put the case back up.

    When she was finsihed, she leaned back and sighed, deeply. Cici, brought her a cup of tea.

    "Thanks again!" Mavi spoke, greatfully. Cici chuckled. "You look like you needed it." Mavi just gave her a look.

    Mavi finished her cup, and stood up. "I better go. I have some folks looking for me. Just take care of what I asked, ok?"

    Cici nodded. "You dont have to worry. See you later?"

    Lady Mavi nodded as she headed out the door.

    <I sure hope so.> she thought to herself, as she left.

    I knew. I knew they were following us.

    A small side glance from Maul told me that he was well aware of it, too. Xeryn walked just a little behind us, attempting to keep up, both in the manner of quick strides and gracefulness of our movements. I probed her mind, searching for any trace as to whether she realised we had two people on our trail - and found out that she concentrating too hard on keeping up. Maul and I had been trying deperately to blur our force signatures since we discovered them, but gave up after a while. The wide created which had been created around us made our outlines much more visible and Xeryn barely had the power to aid us. Though far behind, I was sure that Clare and Yan Yan know our exact whereabouts.

    On thing I had to admit about my new apprentice - her progress in learning the ways of the Force and her quickness in adapting to this new environment amazed me. It was only her fourth day in this galaxy, yet her skill with a lightsabre far surpassed my expectations. She was hardworking, and used whatever free time she had to improve her techniques. Not that she had a choice. We had a journey of about five days on the Infiltrator, and by the end of these five days, I would personally make sure that she would be able to hold her own against a potential opponent.

    As the three of us walked into a building with the hidden docking bay, I could still feel the padawans' eyes following us, and had the feeling once again, that our next meeting was going to be in the near future. Damn. These hunches always came true. I sighed and brushed it away, deciding that I woul worry about it when the time came.

    Settling down onto the seat on the left side of the cockpit, I heaved a small sigh. so much had been on my mind lately. Getting a new apprentice, coping with the reactions of Maul towards her, constantly bumping into clare and Yan Yan, and the heaviest of which was the final inevitable duel with the Jedi in the hangar on Naboo. In fact, it was going to happen in a mere five days time since that was our next destination - and the Jedi were already tracking us down. I wondered how many would be there to take us on, and how many I would take down, and whether I would leave the place alive...

    For some reason, being in the Infiltrator erased all these hammering thoughts and clared my mind for a while. Just knowing that I was in command of the best ship in the galaxy made me feel protected - almost invincible.

    At a sign from Maul, I fired up the engines and sent us into real space. After setting our course to Naboo, Maul noticed something.

    "We've got a vector lock on us," he said coolly.

    "Let them follow," I said and narrowed my eyes. "This was long overdue anyway."

    Maul raised his eyebrows in reply to my statement, thne broke into a small grin when I decided to locate the tracking device and detach it from the ship. My hand shifted from the panel of buttons to a lever, then pulled it and activated the hyperdrive.

    Naboo, here we come.

    Lady Mavi was quite busy.

    She had many places to stop, and people to visit. Once she was done, she hurried to catch up with the others.

    Only once she was out of the lower sectors did she catch a local taxi ride towards the Senatoral buildings. She knew they were still there.

    Mavi was tired, and wanted to do nothing better than to fall on a bed someplace, but she still had to take care of somthing.

    She made it to where the Chancellors office was located. She then started to head, where others who were waiting would be located. She would patiently wait until needed. She pulled back her hood, and re-arranged her head drape, while she walked.

    She soon caugh up with the Queens handmaidens. She gave a small smile under her veil.

    Lady Mavi was glad to see the queens entourage had made it all safely.

    She greeting them, and then found herself a seat. She had been running non-stop since she had arrived on the planet.

    Something was vaguley off....but she couldnt quite put her fingers on the reason. But she felt something had...changed, somehow.

    Most curious.

    She sat in the chair, and closed her eyes, as she kept the rest of her mind focused on the energies around her.

    The handmaidenes nodded a pleasent hello to Lady Mavi as she approached. One patted a space next to her leaving room for Mavi to sit.

    "They've been in there a while. I hope the Chancellor can help us."

    ====Chancellor's Office=====

    The statly Naboo monarch spelled out her problem to Finis Valorum, who listened intently. Creases on his face showed the concern he had for her people. He paced his spacious office to stand before a large wall window, to gaze at the endless traffic outside..

    "Going through normal channels would take too long to solve Naboo's problem. This evidence clearly shows the Trade Federation violaited Republic Law with it's bloakade, but Naboo is in the middle of several hostile worlds. If we were to have a fleet of craft.."

    "The ships would be attacked and full scale war would ensue. Yet if nothing is done, an entire world would be bullied. Who knows what other world they will go to next if they succeed with Naboo. We are caught between a rock and a hard place."

    The Queen finised the thought gently. It was a very sticky situation, Either way the Chanellor would move, he'd be met with opposition. It was a matter of the lesser of two evils. Catch 22s were NOT pleasent. She positivly hated them. No seeable way around them, unless one found some obscure law. The woman's head was bowed in deep thought.

    "Chanellor Valorum, Doesn't the Repulic have provisonal laws for Worlds experianing natural disasters?"

    A plan was forming in the young woman's mind.

    "Why yes. The world's leadership must petition the Senate for Aid."

    He was picking up quickly. The woman was going to ask for disater aid. The Nabooian was sneaky. Both eyebrows went up on Finis' face. when he noticed Captian Paneka and Amidala's eyes carring a glint. They had some scheme in mind and the blockade wasn't going to stop them. All they needed was a little Republic help.

    "Our world is experiancing unsual fires and floods that are disrupting food production."

    She stated evenly while the Chancellor nodded in agreement catching on.


    "I see Naboo needs disater aid from the Rebuplic and shall get it."

    Finis was glad some way was found around the situation.

    "I hope Senate sees we've a disater on our hands, and sanctions aid. My people will make sure the craft make it planetside."

    The Queen said her face showed no emotion except the eyes which held a defiant glint. He got it. He's following along, the 'catch 22' had finally been thwarted.

    "I will make sure they realise how grave it is. You may need outside help. I know some respourceful beings who may like to help if you ask."

    He said as he walked back to the desk, and slid datapadd across the Monarch.

    Over the past decade, the Jedi were working with Valorum to become atonomous, seperate from the Rebuplic and no longer under the rule of the Chancelor. It gave them more freedom to move as they should to serve the Republic as their call orginally dictaited. It also kept them from any implicaitions of being 'puppets of the Chanelor'. Each world who neded help would ask Jedi Order nearest their region. Coruscant Order was nearest Naboo, and that was where Amidlala needed to go.

    "Thank you Chancelor Valorum for your help."

    Amidala stood giving the gracious man a bow or respect.

    "I will see them after I personally petition the Senate."

    Finis smiled nodding, while he escorted the entoruage out to the ajacent office. The Nabooian female was defiantly very wily and sneaky.

    Once in the other Office, Amidala's eyes caught sight of Lady Mavi, she gave a mental sigh of relief. She gave Lord Nevel a glance, and noted his expression, she was sure he was pleased to see his cohort safe and sound. The eyes of the handmaidens asked questions their voices couldn't.

    "The Chancellor will help Naboo. We've come up with a plan."

    She smiled slightly, giving Lord Nevel a glance. What a scheme they had hatched, a scheme indeed.

    "I'll tell you all more in chambers before we see the Senate
