The Photonovel Alliance

After leaving the Jedi Temple, Anakin returns to the only other place he calls home.


Padme Amidala: Anakin!

Anakin Skywalker: I’ve missed you, Padme.

Padme Amidala: I was afraid I wasn’t going to see you before you left again. How long are going to remain on Coruscant?

Anakin Skywalker: The Council can reassign me at anytime. But, they are too concerned about their own right now.

Anakin Skywalker: And by the time they make a decision about anything important, the War may be over.

Padme Amidala: What do you mean by that?

Anakin Skywalker: Nothing. Forget it, just Jedi business

Padme Amidala: Well, in that case……I.m so happy you’re here! The constant worrying about someone…

Anakin Skywalker: I told you to stop worring about that. No one is going to find out. We will always be together. Nothing will prevent that, not even the Jedi Order.

Padme Amidala: What’s wrong? Something happened at the Temple, didn’t it?

Anakin Skywalker: I don’t want to talk about it. Tell me, what peace agreement did you charm someone into signing today?

Padme Amidala: Very funny, Annie. I prefer a diplomatic solution instead of aggressive negotiations, remember? But I did have an interesting meeting with the Chancellor recently.

Padme Amidala: Senator Organa and I met with Palpatine to discuss the upcoming vote on the Galactic Security. The Chancellor invited his close friends, including Wilhuff Tarkin. Senator Organa was puzzled by his attendance.

Anakin Skywalker: What doesn’t puzzle Senator Organa?

Padme Amidala: Nevertheless, the Chancellor wanted to know if he had our support for the Security measure. He claims it will provide more security for the citizens of Coruscant, especially the Senate.

Anakin Skywalker: The Chancellor is just trying to keep the Senate in session, so we can end the War sooner. It will take even longer to decide things if the Senate is in hiding.

Padme Amidala: Perhaps, but is it really necessary to have more troops? The Jedi keep the peace here on Coruscant. If the new Security can provide the safety necessary to hold a peace summit, then I would be in favor of it. And since when do you care about politics?

Anakin Skywalker: Oh believe me, I don’t care for it. But I agree with the Chancellor, we need more Security. The Jedi can’t do everything.

Anakin Skywalker: The Council can’t even select the best Jedi for a rescue mission. Why would you believe they could protect an entire planet?

Padme Amidala: I know you’re upset about something that the Council did or didn’t do. What happened, Annie?

Anakin Skywalker: Master Gallia is in danger. I saw her during my meditation. She has not responsed to recent transmissions. But the Council chose Aayla Secura to investigate. She is a very good Jedi…but…

Padme Amidala: …you wanted to go. I know how much Master Gallia means to you. It is understandable why you are upset. But Aayla is more than capable of finding Master Gallia.

Padme Amidala: Besides, look at the bright side. While she is gone, you’re here…with me.

Anakin Skywalker: You’re right. I don’t know what I was thinking. Our time together is so limited. I won’t spend another minute thinking about it.

Anakin Skywalker: Something is not right here…I feel…cold…

Anakin Skywalker: Dooku!!!

Count Dooku: I may have left the Jedi Order a long time ago, but I don’t remember the Order approving of this type of relationship. What would Master Yoda say?

Count Dooku: A Senator and a Jedi? Imagine the rumors that would sweep over the Republic!

Anakin Skywalker: They will never know because you won’t live long enough to tell anyone, Dooku!!!

Count Dooku: Such anger in a Jedi. I LIKE IT!!!

Anakin Skywalker: I’ll show you anger!!!

Count Dooku: Young fool. Do you really think you can defeat me?

Anakin Skywalker: Guess we’ll find out!!!

Count Dooku: Perhaps you are not as powerful as everyone thinks…

Count Dooku: My Master will be so disappointed.

The End of Act I
