The Photonovel Alliance
DARK ILLUSIONSChapter 29



Following the battle, the Trade Federation completes the landing of their remaining core ships.


    



Viceroy Gunray: All of our ships have landed, Count Dooku. What about the Jedi? Is he dead yet?


    



Count Dooku: You need not worry about Master Tiin. We have him well under control. General Grievous is interrogating him as we speak.





Rune Haako: What?! You didn’t kill him?!

Viceroy Gunray: This is outrageous! It is too dangerous to hold a Jedi captive!






Count Dooku: Yes, Master Tiin is still alive. He is much more valuable to us alive than dead, Viceroy.





Viceroy Gunray: I do no agree with this, Count. What would Lord Sidious say?

Count Dooku: My Master has full knowledge of this plot. But perhaps you would feel better if you saw the Jedi yourself. Follow me…






Count Dooku: Trust me when I say everything is proceeding as planned.





General Grievous: Pull! I want to see him suffer!

Saesee Tiin: …………






General Grievous: Pathetic Jedi…





General Grievous: As soon as Dooku is done with you……your life will belong to me, Jedi!





Count Dooku: Patience, General. His time will come.





Count Dooku: How are we doing this morning, Master Tiin? I apologize for your accommodations, but your visit was……unexpected.





Viceroy Gunray: Now I understand! We will demand the Republic surrender in exchange for the life of this Jedi!





Count Dooku: The Supreme Chancellor would never surrender the War just because a Jedi was foolish enough to be captured. Nevertheless, this will be an embarrassment for the Republic, I can assure you.





Count Dooku: It is time to make an example of Master Tiin and the arrogance of the Jedi Council……something that should have been done a long time ago.





Saesee Tiin: Your hate has blinded you, Dooku. Only you would turn this War into personal vendetta against the Jedi Order. How many more people will die for your cause?





Count Dooku: Oh, I’m afraid you’re mistaken, Master Tiin. This is not MY personal vendetta.





Count Dooku: Leave us.





Count Dooku: It’s curious, don’t you think Master Tiin, that the Council has been unable to discover the identity of Darth Sidious. When I told Master Kenobi about his controlling of the Senate, I would have wagered the Council would have destroyed the Sith Lord by now.





Count Dooku: But the Council isn’t even sure if Darth Sidious exists. For all you know, I could be Darth Sidious. Or, could it be possible that the Council…is also under the control of Sidious?

Saesee Tiin: Never. The Council would be aware of it.






Count Dooku: Perhaps…but surely you can’t believe the Republic is worth saving with corruption running rampant? I’m sorry, old friend, but the beloved Republic that you and Master Windu once served is a shadow of itself. It must be rebuilt…with one, strong leader.





Count Dooku: But enough politics. You and Master Windu are close friends, are you not? Perhaps we should “reach” out to him……and enlighten him of your current situation.

Saesee Tiin: What are you going to—aaaaaahhhhhhhhhh!!!






Meanwhile, light years away, at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant…

Mace Windu: Saesee……in pain……so much pain……






Saesee Tiin: aaaaahhhhhhhhh…

Count Dooku: I’m sorry, old friend. I wish there was another way…






Saesee Tiin: ………………………

Count Dooku: That should be enough……for now. Enter, General Grievous!






Count Dooku: I have concluded my conversation with Master Tiin.





Count Dooku: You many continue with your……interrogation, General.

General Grievous: With pleasure…






General Grievous: Now…where were we?





PUNCH!





PUNCH!





Mace Windu: ……Saesee……





SLAM!





BANG!

Shade:(thinking) ……that interrogation is not allowed under Republic law………






PUNCH!

Shade:(thinking) ……must rescue the Jedi……






SLAM!

Shade:(thinking) ……but Windu said not to engage the enemy……






BANG!

Shade:(thinking) ……I will follow orders……and report their location……need a coded signal……






SLAM!

Shade:(thinking) ……the gunship……






Later, at the hangar holding the captured gunship, Avenger…

Battle Droid 647F: Security check complete. Re-commencing…






Battle Droid 414A: Roger roger!





Battle Droid 647F: Did you hear something?

Battle Droid 414A: Negative.






Battle Droid 414A: Continuing security check.





Battle Droid 414A: Error—!

PPPFFFZZZTTT!






Battle Droid 647F: Repeat. Could not confirm last communication.





Battle Droid 647F: Alert! Alert! Possible intruder!





Battle Droid 647F: Possible—

PPPFFFZZZTTT






Shade: ……now to send my report……





Shade: ……found General Grievous, Count Dooku, and Trade Federation leadership……sending coordiantes……Oner system……
