The Photonovel Alliance

Shmi Skywalker: Don’t be afraid, Annie. He just wants your help. And if you can help him, you should.

Anakin Skywalker: But mom……those Jawas are disgusting creatures!


Anakin Skywalker: Besides……he wouldn’t help us.

Shmi Skywalker: Then set a good example.


Shmi Skywalker: Besides, I’ll be right here if you need me. Now go…

Anakin Skywalker: Awwwww……

Jawa: Eee-chee!!

Anakin Skywalker: Hi there. Gonk droid not working again, huh? Let me take a look.

Anakin Skywalker: There you go……good as new! His shifter was loose.


Anakin Skywalker: You were right mom. He just wanted his droid fixed.

Shmi Skywalker: You see? You had nothing to be afraid of. I’m so proud of you, Annie.

Shmi Skywalker: The biggest problem in this universe is no one helps each other.

Anakin Skywalker: Mom……

Anakin Skywalker: …………

While contemplating his most recent vision, Anakin returns to Padme’s apartment.

Anakin Skywalker: ………

Padme Amidala: Anakin!

Anakin Skywalker: I’ve missed you, Padme

Padme Amidala: Are you alright? You seemed……troubled.

Anakin Skywalker: I’m fine now.

Padme Amidala: Good, because I wanted to talk to you about something——

Anakin Skywalker: Obi-Wan was here…

Padme Amidala: Yes, he came by earlier looking for you.

Padme Amidala: Annie……Obi-Wan mentioned a fight between you and a Padawan?

Anakin Skywalker: Obi-Wan exaggerates. It wasn’t a fight. Zett got a little excited……and……I……knocked him down.

Padme Amidala: Is he alright?

Anakin Skywalker: He’s fine. Master Ti and Windu were there. But enough about that……I heard the Senate finally passed the Galactic Security Act.

Padme Amidala: Yes, we did. It passed with a landslide vote. The Chancellor was pleased, to say the very least.

Anakin Skywalker: That’s good news!

Anakin Skywalker: I’ll feel better knowing that you’re safe when I leave.

Padme Amidala: Oh? You’re leaving again? When?

Anakin Skywalker: Master Windu has plans for Obi-Wan and me. I’m sure Obi-Wan knows by now, but he hasn’t told me.

Padme Amidala: Perhaps it’s best for the details to remain confidential until everything has been confirmed. Besides……the Council has a lot of things to worry about, including the new Security Force.

Padme Amidala: Senator Organa proposed a Jedi be assigned to work closely with the new Clone Security, to be sure their authority is not abused. The Chancellor is supposed to discuss it with the Council.

Anakin Skywalker: Protection is a job for Clones, not Jedi! Every Jedi is needed in the battlefield right now.

Padme Amidala: I was hoping……you would volunteer.

Anakin Skywalker: What? Why?

Anakin Skywalker: Padme, you know the Republic needs me to win this War. I have to be out there. I should be out there right now!

Padme Amidala: But what about Dooku? If he can walk in here, what’s to stop him from attacking the entire Capital? If you work with the Clone Security, it allows you to be here……on Coruscant……with me……

Anakin Skywalker: But that’s why I have leave, Padme. So that I can take the fight to him! You have to understand. I’m doing this for us……for the Republic.

Padme Amidala: I’m starting to think this War will never end. It’s tearing apart the Republic. Palpatine continues to amend the Constitution. And now, we have a garrison on Coruscant.

Anakin Skywalker: The Chancellor is trying to end this War, Padme. And at the same time, he is trying to protect the Capital, that’s all

Padme Amidala: I know he’s your mentor, but even a good man can be wrong sometimes.

Padme Amidala: But enough of this. You have a lot on your mind as it is. Just make me a promise…

Anakin Skywalker: A promise?

Padme Amidala: Promise me you will at least think about working with the new Clone division? You don’t have to decide right now……just promise me that you will think about it.

Anakin Skywalker: I will……for you……I will……
