DARK ILLUSIONSChapter 2



Back on Coruscant, the Jedi Council have just viewed Ki-Adi Mundi’s report on Raxus Prime.


    



Shaak Ti: That is the end of Master Mundi’s transmission.


    



Mace Windu: Ki-Adi’s frustration was obvious. Again Grievous proves to be one step ahead of us. He was reported on Raxus Prime only three days ago.





Yoda: Knew of our attack, Grievous did. Strange this is.





Obi-Wan Kenobi: Palpatine will not be pleased, since he was against sending what few Clones we had to hunt down Grievous.





Mace Windu: Palpatine’s attention is spread over too many objectives. He wants to end the war, but also secure the Inner Core.

Saesee Tiin: His current legislation to allow Clones to become Coruscant’s Galactic Security is only adding to his distractions.






Kit Fisto: We must not allow him to lose focus on capturing Count Dooku or Grievous. The war will end if they are destroyed.





Mace Windu: Here he comes now, late as usual.





Chancellor Palpatine: Please excuse my tardiness. As you know, several Senators are opposed to my plan for the Galactic Security of Coruscant. Their inquiries only delay the inevitable.





Mace Windu: Think nothing of it, Chancellor. We were just discussing the latest report from Master Mundi. His latest assignment proved unsuccessful in locating Grievous.





Chancellor Palpatine: Another disappointment. Was your intelligence not correct, then?





Yoda: Knew of our plans to attack, the General did. Now, the search continues.





Obi-Wan Kenobi: Our intelligence was correct about Grievous’ location, since he left several Magna Guards behind.





Shaak Ti: We have several more Jedi looking for him and Count Dooku. It will only be a matter of time before we find both of them.





Chancellor Palpatine: And if you don’t? I am sorry to sound so negative, but in our continued hunts for the Count and his General, we have found nothing but dust.





Chancellor Palpatine: Could they not just be leading us on a wild Bantha chase? Meanwhile, with our Clones being re-positioned, the Seperatists come closer to taking back several planets in the Inner Core.





Chancellor Palpatine: With this ongoing conflict, the people of these planets may begin to believe the rhetoric from the Seperatists, that we cannot protect them. This may lead to these crucial planets leaving the Republic, and joining the Seperatists.





Chancellor Palpatine: Peace is our objective, not just the death of two evil beings. I understand how important Dooku & Grievous are to ending the War. However, the Senate is not pleased when we lose troops on missions that prove worthless. I will shoulder the blame for this myself, but the Jedi no longer enjoy their high stature with the Senate or the Republic. There are trying times, for certain.





Chancellor Palpatine: Now, unfortunately, I am needed in an emergency session of the Senate. Several Senators have called for a vote on the Galactic Security measure. I am confident we have the votes to win, though. I bid you a good day, Jedi.





Mace Windu: His time spent with us becomes less and less each time.





Saesee Tiin: He is correct about our failed missions. Each one brings less hope to the War ending soon.





Obi-Wan Kenobi: There are so few Jedi left that I fear we may not have enough to find either Dooku or Grievous.





Yoda: No matter, the pursuit of Grievous and Dooku will continue. Growing the dark side is, difficult to see the future is. May the Force be with us.





Mace Windu: Obi-Wan, may we speak to you.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Of course, Master.






Mace Windu: Where is Anakin?

Obi-Wan Kenobi: He is in the meditation room in the Temple. He has been very uneasy about something as of late.






Mace Windu: You must keep him focused, Obi-Wan. He is quickly frustrated with this War.





Obi-Wan Kenobi: I will, Master. I am concerned he has been on Coruscant for too long. He becomes restless with the War going on.





Kit Fisto: His conversations with the Chancellor may also add to that anxiety.





Mace Windu: It is Palpatine I worry about. His recent actions are questionable.





Mace Windu: Just watch him carefully, Obi-Wan. His skills will be needed when we find Dooku or Grievous.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: I will, Master. And thank you for your concern.






Obi-Wan Kenobi:
