None of your fancy robes for the senate. Just a chillaxing Sith dude! Sheev Palpatine, the private person, is an enigma to them. They don't want to know the real Sith. They can't handle the truth! The Republic is like a Perlote tree, growing in a swamp of corruption And Sheevie is digging down beneath the corruption to make it all shiny and new again. The rest is well placed blackmail. Such a skilled future Emperor. An unusual couple, true, but love is a riddle for you anyway. He loves his power. I said to the Red Bull... I must have wings. You have no real feelings for him. So that, one day, when he hurts Nagina, you will punish him severely. “You two must be absolutely ravished,” Gee, I wonder why. Getting dressed might take a while longer, but you are okay with that. Heh. The squeaking of the bed should be his second clue. I continue to love the look inside good ol' Steve's private life. Excellent story 3!
