The Photonovel Alliance
DARK ILLUSIONSChapter 47



As the 212th Battalion begin post-battle operations, Commander Cody and Anakin Skywalker await contact from Obi-Wan Kenobi.


    



Clone Trooper Pry: I don’t remember ’Battle Cleanup 101’ in basic training, do you?

Clone Trooper Fraz: General Skywalker issued the order to salvage whatever is left of the Droid Army for intelligence.



    



Clone Trooper Wark: I say we melt them down…make dinnerware out of them. It would serve the entire Grand Army!





Clone Pilot Ratchet: So that is the “great” Droid Commander OOM-12, huh?

Clone Trooper Zank: Nothing more than scrap now. But if he is carrying any recent transmissions in his database, he may yet be of use to us






Clone Trooper Pry: Or maybe we should prop them up for target practice!

Anakin Skywalker: ………






Never good with patience, Anakin’s mind begins to wander…

Watto: It don’t matter how long it takes! Wait here until the customer arrives. And make sure they pay in advance! No funny business……Wha? Wheres everyone goin’?

Anakin Skywalker: Something is coming this way.






Jawa: Eeeecccchhhheeeeee!!!

Yakface: Raiders!!!






Watto: Raiders?? Quick! Take cover! You’re no good to me if you can’t race!

Anakin Skywalker: Tusken Raiders?






Tusken Raider: Rrrooaarrr . rrrroooaaarrrr!

Graga: (in Huttese) Nooo!!!






Graga: Uugghh…

Tusken Raider: Rrrroooaaarrr . roooaar!






Tusken Raider: Rrroooooaaaaaarr!!!









Jawa: EEE-CHEE-YYYIIII!!!





Anakin Skywalker: ……sandpeople……





Anakin Skywalker: Stay with me, mom…

Shmi Skywalker: ……I…love…………….






Tusken Raider: Rrrroooaaaarrr!!!





Anakin Skywalker: NNNOOOOOO!!!





Anakin Skywalker: ANIMALS!!!

Tusken Raider: Rrrroooaaaarrr!!!






Anakin Skywalker: I HATE YOU!!





Anakin Skywalker: I wasn’t strong enough to save you, Mom. But I promise……I won’t fail again.





Padme Amidala: Annie, are you just going to sit here and let him die?? He’s your friend… your mentor…

Anakin Skywalker: He’s like my father……






Commander Cody: General? General Skywalker?





Anakin Skwalker: What is it, Commander?

Commander Cody: Still no word from General Kenobi.






Anakin Skywalker: He’s alive……I can feel his presence.

Commander Cody: We do have several reports of a speeder leaving the field of battle.






Anakin Skywalker: Dooku…

Commander Cody: And we’ve scoured the area, but can find no signs of the mysterious warrior.






Central Command transmission on comlink: <bing bing> We have found the homing beacon of General Kenobi’s BARC speeder. It is coming from an area known as the Crystal Mines.





Anakin Skywalker: Set course for the Crystal Mines!

Commander Cody: Yes, sir!






Meanwhile, back at the Crystal Mines…

Count Dooku: I hope your saber skills have improved since our last meeting, Master Kenobi.






Obi-Wan Kenobi: You’ll soon find out!

















Obi-Wan Kenobi: Ugh……





Count Dooku: It’s a pity that the previous battle has weakened you. Otherwise, this contest might actually be challenging.





Count Dooku: Perhaps now you understand the true power of the Force! The power that even Master Yoda fears!





Obi-Wan Kenobi: Yoda doesn’t fear you, Dooku……and neither do I!





Count Dooku: You can say that……you may even believe that…





Count Dooku: But I can feel you tiring……doubt entering your mind……fear of failing to end this War……





Obi-Wan Kenobi: You won’t break me the way you did Master Bulq.













Count Dooku: Who said anything about “breaking” you…





Obi-Wan Kenobi: Ugghh…





Count Dooku: Your attack lacks imagination, Master Kenobi. Your stance……off balance. No style at all.





Count Dooku: Yet another sign of the continuing decay of the Jedi Order.





Obi-Wan Kenobi: ……ugghhh……





Count Dooku: Perhaps I was mistaken……a true Jedi would not be so easily defeated.





Count Dooku: Disappointing to be sure……but not unexpected.





Obi-Wan Kenobi: You won’t kill Anakin so easily, Dooku.





Count Dooku: Hmph……indeed……





Count Dooku: However, I don’t plan to kill you, Master Kenobi.





Count Dooku: You serve another purpose. You may proceed, Utapaun.

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Wha???






Obi-Wan Kenobi: UUGGGHHHH……





Sagev: Die Je-edi!





Count Dooku: STOP! You will soon get your revenge, Utapaun.





Count Dooku: Prepare for Skywalker’s arrival.

Sagev: Yes, Count Dooku.
