    OOhhh, awsome fanfic=D=
    I just found this story and I love it! I love how Padme is having wacked out freams instead of Anakin. Ans I think I know who the stranger is. I guessed when he mentions that the negotiations would get 'agressive'!
    I want to know what happens next, so please add me to your pm list[face_praying] .

    Sorry for the belated reply, I just returned from a small trip.

    I hope you had a good trip! :D

    In my opinion Palo could hit his head, have an amnesia, and live a happy life where he is


    The stranger is most definitely having an impact on Padme. ;)

    Thanks so much for reading! :D


    Thank you! :D Glad you liked the chapter.


    I am eager to learn the identity of the Stranger.

    Ah, remember, patience is a virtue. O:) :p

    As for Palo... heh, its good to see him get what he deserved

    Yes, but don't count him out so soon. [face_devil]

    Thanks for reading, V_S! :D

    LOL! Thanks! :D

    Now Padme has the perfect excuse to see him again?but will she?

    Well, it would be a pretty boring story if she didn't, wouldn't it? [face_batting]

    Thanks again for everything! [:D]


    Thank you! [face_blush] Welcome to the story. I'm glad you're enjoying it. :)

    I'll be happy to add you to the PM list. ;)


    Chapter 5

    It was nearing mid-day when, with the mended cloak folded carefully over her arm and a basket of fruit and bread in her hands, a nervous Padmé at last set off for the abandoned sector. As she hurried through the village, she repeatedly glanced around her, making sure that no one was paying her particular notice.

    She had contacted Aiel at the school earlier that morning, feigning illness. Aiel had clucked her tongue knowingly, informing Padmé that it was probably a delayed reaction from her ordeal and assuring her that the school would manage without her. Padmé had felt quite guilty lying to her dear friend, but she was certain Aiel would have a tantrum of galactic proportions if she knew that Padmé was returning to the abandoned sector alone.

    When she finally reached the outskirts of the marketplace, Padmé hesitated. "Why am I doing this?" she whispered to herself, chewing on her bottom lip thoughtfully. Was she really willing to risk returning to a place she knew was unsafe? As she mulled over the possible dangers, she thought once more of the eyes from her dreams. Padmé lifted her chin determinedly and set off on the street leading from the village.

    She wanted answers, and there was only one person who could give them to her.

    It seemed like she had been walking for hours when Padmé finally neared the alleyway where she had first encountered the stranger. She slowed her step, peering into shadows and around corners, wondering once again at the intelligence of her decision. Around her, all was silent, and it was an eerie stillness, one that seemed to hang in the very air. She continued past the alleyway, peering cautiously through the windows of the abandoned buildings in search of any signs of life. Padmé couldn't overcome the feeling that the dilapidated dwellings, their transparisteel windowpanes like so many eyes, were staring back at her, cursing her for trespassing here in this accursed place and disturbing their tortured slumber.

    At last, only meters ahead, she could see the hovel where the stranger had taken her. Her heartbeat thundering in her ears, she quickened her step, now abandoning all caution in her haste to find refuge from the open path. She was caught off-guard, then, when a hand quickly reached out and grasped her arm. Padmé tried to run, but the hand held her firmly, pulling her out of the street and into the shelter of a dark threshold. She cried out and immediately felt another hand clamp down firmly over her mouth.

    "Stop screaming, or you're going to have every desperate creature in the sector coming after you."

    Padmé had tightened her grip on the basket's handle, preparing to swing the pitiful weapon at

    [blockquote]Then you are as naïve you are beautiful.[/blockquote]So his eyes do work! And not just haunt dreams and try not to stare at well-cooked meals.

    I hope Padmé doesn't stay away. This stranger with the beautiful eyes, hidden face, deadly body and dangerous past is just what the rather sheltered school teacher needs. But I think she already knows that. ;)

    My heart aches for him too...:(

    He was classifying himself as a "what" not a "who"? He doesn't even believe he's human? Oh man...this is torturing me Gina! Someone help him! He's in pain...oh :_|

    I loved Padme in this! How she was so stubborn and you gotta love the muttering under the breath...I can just imagine her doing that. It's quite funny.

    Loved this chapter! And thanks for the Happy Birthday!

    They met again! :) I hope Padme won't give up so easily and that she goes back to find him. He sais he doesn't want her to, but I think he feels differently.

    I hope they meet soon again!! Great chapter, thanks for the pm!

    I am glad that Padme went to him, but I also felt the chills that she felt when she walked away...

    He is a suffering little boy inside, but on the outside, he is a man who declares he is dangerous and doesn't know what he is... I feel for this little boy... :(

    Padme is going to return... I know she will...

    *he* is a user of the Force... I know it...

    Darn it! He's still wearing the cloak. Yep, apparently Padme is more polite than I am so you're going to need to send the address this way. Might it look something like this?

    1800 Messy Hovel Way
    Abandoned Sector, Naboo 38907


    What an incredible update, Gina!! Gosh, the chemistry between Padme and the stranger practically leaps off the page and gets me into a headlock - that's how powerful it is. I want nothing more than to see these two interact some more. I do hope that Padme will find herself back in his company sooner rather than later.

    Thanks for the PM! You have to know how much I am enjoying this story. It is an absolute pleasure to read, my friend!! [:D]

    Thanx for the pm. this is a very interesting story! He's got to be a force sesative since he read her thoughts. It really frustrated me though when he would not giver her his name, hehe. Maybe next time he'll seek her . I can't wait for the next update!

    [face_shame_on_you] No no no, stranger. Very unpolite of you to let her go like that *shakes head* Seriously, shame on you!

    I'm falling in love with their interaction, short as it is they have powerful chemistry. I love this story! Keep up the great work!

    Well, I definitely don't think Padme will stay away now. The stranger has her totally intrigued. And whether he wants to admit it or not- Padme is starting to get under his skin. He'll want to see her again. [face_love]

    As for his identity, I think I know who he is [face_thinking] .... I can't wait to see if I'm right.

    Thanks for the PM and I am definitely looking forward to more. :)

    Maybe he is dangerous, but I like him. :)

    I liked the line where he says she is as naive as she is beautiful, shows he is at least physically attracted to her. Now we just have to work on those trust issues (and hope that he isn't dangerous). :)

    He can be dangerous around Palo if he wants. [face_devil]

    Great chapter.

    Padme trying to pay an act of kindness with a patch up cloak and basket of food. Being shut down. The stranger shutting her out say he is dangerous. I can't wait for Anakin will give his name to Padme. Baby steps to earn trust. Can't wait for more.

    Why does our "mysterious" stranger have to be so stubborn?! She was only trying to be nice...and find out a little bit about him. She risked her safety to go see him.

    He's dangerous, huh? Somehow I don't see that mattering to Padmé.

    I loved that he reached out and touched her through the Force. That was so sweet.

    Great update, Gina.

    I love the chemistry and the mystery!

    This can only be Anakin but what's happened to him? I do believe there were some clues here. He says something to the effect of "what" he is and not "who" he is, so could this "what" be a Sith(possibly one that has come back to the light) or maybe a Rogue Jedi? What's with the hood? Could his face be known through out the galaxy and he doesn't want to be recognized or has he been disfigured...possibly burned?

    As you can tell my imagination has gone into overdrive! Can't wait for the next post and thanks for the PM!!!!

    As she retreated, Padmé experienced a strange prickling at the back of her neck and was certain it was the stranger's intense gaze on her, but it was only after she thought she felt the phantom touch of fingertips brush lightly along her shoulder that Padmé finally stopped.

    Ohh, I loved that. [face_love] It's like he's not just making sure she gets out okay, he's showing some actual concern - a lingering attachment, even. [face_batting] Addictive stuff, Gina!

    These two just need to admit they are attracted to each other! :D

    "Then you are as naïve as you are beautiful," he retorted coldly. "Now, I will escort you out of the sector, but I ask that you respect my wishes. Do not seek me out again."

    The stranger reached out to take her arm and lead her from the hut, but Padmé sidestepped him. "I know my own way back to the village," she snapped, ignoring the stranger's words of protest as she whirled around and stepped out into the sunlight, determined not to let him see the disappointment and confusion in her eyes.

    Muttering furiously under her breath, Padmé stalked down the rocky, dusty street, her pride wounded and her anger seething. As she retreated, Padmé experienced a strange prickling at the back of her neck and was certain it was the stranger's intense gaze on her, but it was only after she thought she felt the phantom touch of fingertips brush lightly along her shoulder that Padmé finally stopped. Unnerved, she touched her shoulder, but she felt nothing. She turned around, expecting to see him behind her, but the stranger was standing just outside the hut, now some distance away. He continued to watch her for a moment, and then in a blur of black, he was gone once more, disappearing into his wretched hovel and leaving Padmé standing alone in the street and at a loss to understand what had just occurred.

    Can't wait to see what happens next! =D=

    I think with the stranger wanting padmé to leave and never come back so badly, padme will only have more the urge to search for him again and to find out more about him. How could he be dangerous?? [face_frustrated] Gina you're keeping us all so on the edge of our seet with each post. I can't stand it anymore not to know who he is and why he doesn't want contact with anyone. But I'll wait patiently for the next post:D Great update and thanks for the pm! [:D]
