DARK ILLUSIONSChapter 5





Later, Count Dooku arrives for a private meeting at The Works, the abandoned manufacturing district on Coruscant.


    



Darth Sidious: Welcome, Lord Tyrannus.

Darth Tyrannus: Lord Sidious, the War goes well.






Darth Tyrannus: The Grand Army of the Republic is spread across the galaxy. Their supply lines are stretched beyond the breaking point. The Jedi ranks are thinned out, and more systems are rallying to join the Separatist movement.

Darth Sidious: You’ve done well, Tyrannus.






Darth Sidious: The Jedi are obsessed in their search for Grievous and you. Their pathetic dedication will play into our hands.

Darth Tyrannus: Shall we begin the final assault, Master?






Darth Sidious: The final stages of the War have already begun. The Republic is helpless to stop it.

Darth Tyrannus: What plans do you have for Master Kenobi & Skywalker?






Darth Sidious: They’re of no concern. Their destiny lye with me.

Darth Tyrannus: General Grievous was anxious to begin his next attack. He is in position now.






Darth Sidious: Good. Then, the time has come for your own attack to begin, Lord Tyrannus.

Darth Tyrannus: Your wish is my command, Master.






Meanwhile, back at the Jedi Temple, the Jedi discuss the latest developments in the Clone War.

Aayla Secura: …the report is from Clone Intelligence. It’s the best lead we’ve had. That system is supposed to be void of any Separatists.






Kit Fisto: We must act quickly. If we delay a response, Grievous could escape again. The Council must decide which squad will go.

Aayla Secura: What about Palpatine?






Mace Windu: Let’s be cautious. If we have another failed mission, even Palpatine will not be able to take full responsibility. We need proof, not leads. We’ll speak about this at a later time.





Obi-Wan Kenobi: Master Windu, may we speak to you for a moment?

Mace Windu: Of course.






Obi-Wan Kenobi: Anakin has had some…visions…regarding General Grievous.





Anakin Skywalker: Actually, of Master Gallia.





Mace Windu: Master Gallia is surveying Adaven. The war is over there, and her squad is to assist in the rebuilding. Reports have General Grievous on the other side of the galaxy.





Anakin Skywalker: Allow me to go to Adaven to verify she is safe.

Mace Windu: Your place is here, Skywalker. I sense much confusion in you. We have more leads than we can possibly follow-up. We can’t afford to send additional forces to a planet with no effect on the War, based solely on your “visions”.






Obi-Wan Kenobi: But Master, with Grievous’ location still in question, should we not at least verify Master Gallia is safe on Adaven?





Mace Windu: While I don’t think this warrants any more of our time…I will send a transmission to Adi. At least we will receive her estimate regarding how long the rebuilding effort will take.





Anakin Skywalker: Thank you, Master. I look forward to her response.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Thank you, Master Windu.

Mace Windu: May the Force be with you both.






Anakin Skywalker: He doesn’t believe me, Obi-Wan. I am not confused! Perhaps if the visions were his own, he would take this more seriously…





Obi-Wan Kenobi: Calm yourself, Anakin. We are all on the same side here. He did say he would contact Master Gallia. I’m sure everything will be alright.





Obi-Wan Kenobi: Now, come on, let’s go to the briefing. I am interested to know how the War is going.

Anakin Skywalker: Yes, Master. I hope you’re right.
