    :eek:

    Palpy, you stay away from her!

    Wonderful addition. I'm so glad the visitor was Obi, though I could have lived without the sudden fear that Padme was dead. You're writing is amazing.

    Now where are the Naberries? And how long is it going to take Ani and Obi to rescue Padme? I anxiously await these answers.

    Wow! I don't even know what to say! :eek:

    What a chapter!

    Anakin has finally come to his senses but now Padme is in the clutches of creepy old Palpy! And she's pregnant! Yikes!

    Great chapter, but not good for my heart!

    Oh thank you for ending that cliffie and giving us another one! [face_devil] I'm beginning to think you are EVIL Gina! ;) I loved it! I hope Obi-Wan can help Anakin through this, he is going to need it.

    Played your part to perfection... Just gives me SHIVERS! :D





    P.S. Congrats on your awards, Gina! :D

    Palpatine!!! :mad:

    I'm glad Obi-Wan is with Anakin. I think he may be able to keep him focused as they try to find Padme and confront Palpatine. I have a feeling that Palpatine is going to use Padme as leverage and he is going to certainly let Anakin know about the unborn baby, which gives him even more leverage. :mad:

    Great chapter! The confrontation/showdown can't be far away now. :D

    And Congratulations on your awards--all well deserved! =D=

    "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.


    I felt sorry for both men here. Obi-Wan has to say essentially "I told you so," without actually saying it. And Anakin has to acknowledge some hard truths.

    :_|

    I'm worried about Padme!

    Well it can't be good that Padme is in the hands of the evil old Palpy! Now can it?

    I'm glad Anakin sees the light, but will it be too late to have a happy ending?

    Obi-Wan is there for him, steadfast as always. That i good news, but there's a lot of bad news, too! [face_worried]

    I'll trade you one pregnant padme (huh, huh, I did't catch that myself until I wrote it!)for a life of service to the darkside!!!!

    Will Anakin sell his soul to Palpatine for his wife's safety? The possibilities of where this is going and how it will all get back to canon are endless!

    But who I'm really worried about at the moment is Padmé. [face_worried] I don't like the thoughts of the corpse having her.

    He is most definitely in the driver's seat! ;)

    And even though I've said it already I'll say it again - Congrats on you awards!

    Thanks, Kynstar. [face_blush] And congrats again to you as well! :D

    Hi there!

    I'm so glad Ani's not on Palpy's side anymore; hope he reaches Padme in time!

    Don't worry. Anakin is not going to let Palpy get away with trying to destroy his life and his family ? at least not without a fight. ;)

    Thanks for your review! :D


    JediStarMoonstruck

    *stops bouncing around the thread. starts preparing for rescue mission*

    LOL! They could most certainly use the help!

    Now, Anakin, stay calm. I know this is a forigan concept, but you must learn it or you're become a Sith!

    Anakin has grown a lot in this story (at least I hope :p), but he is still a character very much driven by emotion. When it comes to those he loves, he still finds it hard to be calm and rational.

    Thanks for reading! :)

    I'm so glad the visitor was Obi, though I could have lived without the sudden fear that Padme was dead.

    Sorry about that. It just had to be done. :p

    Now where are the Naberries? And how long is it going to take Ani and Obi to rescue Padme? I anxiously await these answers.

    Ah, remember, patience is a virtue! ;)

    You're writing is amazing.

    Thank you very much! I appreciate that. [face_blush]

    [face_devil] [face_devil] You knew Palpy would never give up that easily.

    Great chapter, but not good for my heart!

    Uh-oh! Does that mean I need to rethink that cliffie in the next chapter?

    Thanks, K! :D

    Hi! Welcome to the story! :)

    No, it is most definitely not looking good. [face_devil]

    Thanks! I should have the next chapter up soon. :D

    Oh thank you for ending that cliffie and giving us another one!

    Hey, consider yourself lucky! I almost ended it before it is revealed that Padmé isn't really dead. :p LOL

    Who?!? Me?!? O:)

    I'm glad Obi-Wan is with Anakin. I think he may be able to keep him focused as they try to find Padme and confront Palpatine.

    Obi-Wan will definitely try to keep him from doing something rash and foolish. Now, whether or not he will be successful in that endeavor?

    I have a feeling that Palpatine is going to use Padme as leverage and he is going to certainly let Anakin know about the unborn baby, which gives him even more leverage.

    Shhh!! [face_shhh] LOL!

    Great chapter! The confrontation/showdown can't be far away now.

    No, it's not. We are indeed nearing the end of the story.

    And Congratulations on your awards--all well deserved!

    Thank you! That's so kind. [face_blush]

    Chapter 32
    The Pursuit




    "We're wasting time," Anakin Skywalker said as he paced impatiently beside the mangled wreckage of his wife's ship.

    "Anakin, we must determine who attacked Padmé's ship," Obi-Wan admonished as he circled the charred craft, searching for any telltale clues.

    "I'm not going to stand here while you conduct a formal investigation. I'm going to find my wife." Anakin whirled around and bolted for the speeder.

    "Anakin," Obi-Wan's stern voice halted the young man. "I understand your urgency, but you must put aside your personal feelings and clear your mind if we are to have any hope of finding Padmé."

    Anakin's recklessness had gotten the young man into trouble more times than Obi-Wan cared to remember, and he knew that he had to get his former Padawan to think rationally. Obi-Wan watched with relief as Anakin finally turned around to face him, his jaw clenched tightly as he took a deep breath, as if trying to calm himself.

    "If Padmé were in the forest, injured, we would have felt her presence," Obi-Wan began again, his voice now much gentler. "If her attackers had wanted to kill her, they would have left her here to die. She was taken from this ship for a reason, Anakin. She's safe for now, but if we are going to find her, we have to find out who took her and why."

    Anakin closed the gap separating him from his former Master in two strides, his face a mask of both fear and fury. "I know who's responsible," he hissed through clenched teeth, "and it's me he wants, not Padmé."


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


    "I don?t understand." Padmé said, her head throbbing, both from the crash and from confusion at her current situation. She lowered her head into her hands, and as she began to massage her temples, her eyes roved the room, searching for a possible weapon. Padmé felt a small glimmer of hope when she noticed a tray of medical instruments resting on a table near her.

    "Do you really think your meteoric rise through the political system of Naboo was entirely of your own accord?" Palpatine inquired smugly. "My dear, while you may not have realized my presence, I have nurtured you and guided your career since you were a mere child."

    Padmé looked up at the Chancellor, unwilling to believe what she was hearing. "The Young Legislator?s Program?" she asked at last as she leaned against the metal bed behind her and moved to her left, toward the table.

    "You do remember. I was leading the mock senate, and I must say, you ran an impressive campaign, my dear. I was quite impressed. Yet, you were so young, so impressionable." Palpatine looked at his ward with something akin to pity. "Your political ambitions have always been admirable, my dear, but you have the unfortunate habit of placing too much value on the opinions of your mentors and advisors. I knew you would be the perfect choice.?

    "The perfect choice for what?" Padmé asked in confusion.

    Palpatine laughed, a spine-chilling sound. "To be my puppet, of course," he replied.

    Padmé felt a knot begin to form in her stomach as the implications of his words set in.

    "The blockade?" she began, but she could not believe it.

    "Yes, the blockade was the beginning. Your stirring words in front of the Senate helped ensure my victory. I would have control of the Senate, and Viceroy Gunray would have control of Naboo. Unfortunately, young Skywalker and your Jedi protectors altered the plan somewhat, but a good leader must be able to improvise. The Viceroy was not pleased with the outcome, I?m afraid, but he was no longer in a position to make demands. The Jedi cost me my apprentice, but perhaps I should be grateful. After all, without their interference, I would not have discovered the Chosen One.?

    Padmé felt her heart pounding ever faster in her chest as she listened with horror to his revelations. She continued to slowly make her way closer to the table.

    "I thought it would take many years to poison young Skywalker against the Jedi," Palpatine continued. "Then,

    Okay, it's my turn to bang my head against the keyboard! ARGH! Evil, evil cliffie! Another son of Skywalker, huh? [:D] Hope the little one will be okay!

    Palpatine is just one cold Sith, isn't he? Loved how Obi-Wan brought Anakin to heel, so to speak. They need one cool head among them! [face_laugh]

    Another thoroughly satisfying chapter, except for the evil cliffie that is!

    Eeewww Palpatine had his hands on Padme feeling for the baby. It's time he goes down!!! :mad:

    As for Palpatine being the one that may have put her in office as Queen---I've considered that myself. As young as she was, he may have thought she might be easy to manipulate, but she surprised him when she led the attack against the Federation on Naboo. :)

    Wonderful chapter!!! :)

    Please don't wait too long to make the next post. :D

    I am glad Obi-Wan is there for Anakin. Evil Palpatine better not hurt her, but I suppose she's safe because he doesn't want to hurt the baby.

    I wonder what's happening on Coruscant. And where is Riane?
