    You can't leave me hanging there! Do you accept bribes? Cookies? I make great cookies!

    So glad that Anakin sees the truth now, but I can only hope it is not too late!

    Argh! Evil cliffie!

    :eek: Dude, Gina... this is excellent. An evil cliffy, but excellent. =D=

    [face_thinking] I wonder where the Naberrie family disappeared to? o_O Did Padmé come and pick them up or has the evil corpse gotten them.

    And who could Anakin's visitor could be? [face_thinking]

    What am supposed to say to that?! How could you end it just like that?

    Who's there? And why is Anakin drawing this lightsabre? Surely it isn't Palpatine? Ah! *Kazzy twitches*

    So where did Padme go? Is she there?

    A great chapter, but still, you could have posted the rest of it! :p

    What? Chani turns the thread over, hoping she missed an arrow indicating there is more on the back. What? The stupid keyboard makes a funny sound. That can't be good.

    Please post the second part soon.

    My computer can't take much more of this.

    Ooohhhh!!! Who could it be?

    The possibilities are endless. [face_mischief]

    Intense chapter so far! Can't wait for the rest of it.

    Thank you! :) I will be posting the second half soon!

    The suspense is killing me here.

    I'll take that as quite a compliment. ;)

    Thanks! :D


    clone_storm_trooper

    Well, regardless of who the visitor is, rest assured we haven't seen the last of Palpy.

    Keep up the awesome writing

    [face_blush] That's very kind, and I thank you!


    Kynstar

    Oh this was so sad poor Anakin! He now feels so bad cuz he allowed himself to be blinded by Palps

    You're right. The problem is, too much self-loathing can be destructive. And he needs to keep it together for his own sake and for the sake of those he loves.

    Thanks, Kynstar. :D

    Chapter 31, Part 2
    Descent




    "Where is she?" Anakin asked the intruder angrily as he leapt down the stone steps and onto the terrace, lightsaber in hand, his finger hovering dangerously close to the button that would ignite its deadly blade.

    "Anakin, please, I don't wish to harm you ?" Obi-Wan said quietly as he held his hands before him as though approaching a nervous shaak.

    "You knew," Anakin growled through clenched teeth. "You were a part of this. Where is my wife? Where have you taken her?"

    "Anakin!" Obi-Wan raised his voice in an effort to calm his friend. It was the same authoritative tone that had so irritated Anakin when he was Obi-Wan's Padawan, but it achieved the desired results as the young man grew quiet.

    "I assure you, Anakin, that I had no prior knowledge of Padmé's actions," the Jedi Master began calmly. "When you left your apartment, Dormé contacted your wife, a risk she was only supposed to take under the most dire of circumstances. Dormé then came to me at the Jedi Temple. She explained to me the plans Padmé and the others have set into motion. When Dormé told me you had discovered Padmé's location, I knew your search would eventually lead you here."

    "Did Dormé also tell you why her mistress fled from her own husband, why she took my own children away from me?" Anakin spat, his hurt and anger once again bubbling to the surface. "Did she tell you what I have become, what he has caused me to become? I have betrayed her, Obi-Wan," he whispered. "I have betrayed the Republic. I just?couldn't lose them the way I lost her, but now I have failed them all."

    Obi-Wan shook his head firmly. "No, Anakin. You did not fail your mother, and you have not failed your family. Padmé is not fleeing from you. She loves you, Anakin, but there was no other way. She knew her plans would place her life in jeopardy, and she wanted the children safely out of the Chancellor's reach."

    "Then why didn't she tell me?" Anakin asked angrily.

    Obi-Wan looked at his friend uncomfortably.

    Anakin felt his body grow numb. "Then I have lost her," he said slowly, his voice strangely detached. "She doesn't trust me anymore, not even with the safety of my son and daughter."

    "Anakin, you wouldn't have listened," Obi-Wan said matter-of-factly. "You refused to believe that the Chancellor would ever act in a manner that would harm the Republic. If she had told you?" His voice trailed off, unwilling to voice such an accusation.

    The hurt and betrayal in the young man's eyes was devastating. "They are my children. She is my wife. I would lay down my own life for theirs." Anakin's voice began to crack as he fought back his tears.

    Obi-Wan stared at Anakin. "I know," he whispered reassuringly.

    "Please tell me where they are," Anakin pleaded.

    Obi-Wan hesitated for a moment but seeing the pain in his friend's eyes, finally relented. "They are no longer on Naboo. By coming here, you placed them in danger of being discovered. Luke and Leia are in the care of the Naberries and have been taken safely off-planet. Of their exact destination, I do not know."

    "The Naberries?" Anakin's brow furrowed in confusion. "I don't understand. Where is Padmé?"

    "Anakin, I have already explained to you that it was never Padmé's intent to flee from you. ? nor to abandon her duties to her people. She and the others senators involved are proceeding with their plans, and Padmé has already begun her return journey to Coruscant. I wanted to stay with her until she was safely aboard her transport vessel, but she insisted that I find you."

    "No! You don't

    Poor Anakin! :( He thinks her dead and then finds that she isn't there! :eek:

    I really felt for Obi here...having to tell Anakin that. Well hopefully soon enough Anakin will tell Obi what the Chancey is.

    Ohhhh how manipulative is Palps!! He has his ticket to Anakin now...oh yeah! [face_devil] hehehehehe

    Oh wait 8-} I shouldn't be encouraging the vile beast! Guess hanging around with the Count is wearing off on me! ;) hehehehe

    EXCELLENT job!!! (edit: And even though I've said it already I'll say it again - Congrats on you awards! :D)

    Great! Anakin's with Obi-Wan. Now, Anakin, stay calm. I know this is a forigan concept, but you must learn it or you're become a Sith! :_|
