DARK ILLUSIONSChapter 48



With hopes of finding Obi-Wan Kenobi, the 212th Battalion race towards the Crystal Mines, led by Anakin Skywalker.


    



Anakin Skywalker: There it is! Pilot, land here!!


    



Commander Cody: Troopers……secure the area!





Anakin Skywalker: Obi-Wan is here…and he is still alive.





Anakin Skywalker: Commander, have the troopers stationed at every entrance to the Mine. I’m going in alone. If I do not return within the hour, destroy it.

Commander Cody: Yes, General.






Anakin Skywalker: (thinking) I promise……I won’t fail again……





Anakin Skywalker: (thinking) I sense……Obi-Wan……





Anakin Skywalker: (thinking) ……and something else…









Sagev: DIE, JE-EDI!





Anakin Skywalker: You…





Sagev: No excuses this time, Je-edi!





Sagev: No place to run……no place to hide!





Sagev: Argh…





Anakin Skywalker: Who wants to hide?





Buzzzzzzz





Sagev: I’ll make you suffer, Je-edi! The way my people have suffered!!!

















Buzzzzzzz









Force push!





Sagev: Uggghhhh…









Sagev: Aargghh!









Punch!

Sagev: Ooof!






Sagev: ……ugh……





Anakin Skywalker: Ahhhh!!!









Buzzzzzzz

Count Dooku: Excellent…






Anakin Skywalker: No place to run……no place to hide……





Sagev: I’m unarmed……you wouldn’t attack an unarmed—





Sagev: AAAAHHHHHH!!!





Anakin Skywalker: Where is Obi-Wan?! TELL ME!!!





Sagev: Je-edi scum……

Anakin Skywalker: TELL ME NOW!!!






Buzzzzzzzz

Count Dooku: I warned you, Utapaun…






Count Dooku: I do not look kindly on mistakes. You’ve served your purpose.





Sagev: Je-edi……scum——BLEH!

FORCE CHOKE!






Anakin Skywalker: Dooku!!





Sagev: Bleeeeeehhhhhhhhh……bleh………………………………………………





Buzzzzzzz

Anakin Skywalker: What is that……noise?






Anakin Skywalker: A probe droid!

SMASH!






Anakin Skywalker: Dooku!! Come out and fight!!!





Anakin Skywalker: Stop hiding and fight me—

Obi-Wan Kenobi: ……uugghhhh……






Anakin Skywalker: Master?! Are you alright??

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Oh, I’ve been better…can you free my hands?






Anakin Skywalker: Where’s Dooku?

Obi-Wan Kenobi: I don’t know. The last thing I remember was that mysterious warrior attacking and —






Anakin Skywalker: —he’s dead. Come on, I got to get you out of here. Commander……come in, Commander……this is Skywalker…





Commander Cody: General Skywalker……we’re under attack!……General!………GRIEVOUS!





Meanwhile, in one of the Crystal Mines tunnels……

Commander Cody: All units…OPEN FIRE!!!






Clone Trooper Zank: Ugh!





Clone Trooper Wark: I got him!





Clone Trooper Wark: Aaaahhhhhh…

General Grievous: Ha ha ha ha!






Clone Trooper Pry: Target locked in.





Clone Trooper Pry: Bleh!





General Grievous: Clone Commander……

Commander Cody: He’s over here!!!






Commander Cody: Take him down! NOW! Take him—UGH!





General Grievous: Call for help, Commander! Call the Jedi scum!!





Clone Trooper Fraz: Hold your fire! We don’t want to hit the Commander!!





Commander Cody: Forget about me! FIRE! FIRE!

General Grievous: Rrrrrrrrrrrr……






Commander Cody: TAKE HIM DOWN———

CRUNCH!






Clone Trooper Fraz: OPEN FIRE!!!





Grievous shakes off his cape, and activates four lightsabers while running towards the Clones.

Clone Trooper Fraz: Wha?!






Clone Trooper Fraz: Look out!

Clone Trooper Baz: Aaaahhhhh!

Clone Trooper Drex: He’s too fast—






General Grievous: Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha!!





Count Dooku: Time to go, General. Our work is done here. My Master will be most pleased.





General Grievous: As you wish……





A few minutes later……

Commander Cody: ……stay with me, solider……help is…on the way……






Commander Cody on comlink: ………anyone there?……this is…Commander Cody……we need……medivacs……ASAP!!!





Obi-Wan Kenobi: By the Force……we’re too late.

Commander Cody: ……General Kenobi?






Commander Cody: ……we……couldn’t……hold them……Grievous……and Dooku……

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Save your strength, Cody. We’re getting you out of here.

Anakin Skywalker: Dooku was here?!






Anakin Skywalker: We can’t let them escape, Master! We can use the speeders to pursue them——

Commander Cody: Central command reports……Federation Starships……coming out of hyper space……attacking our ships……

Obi-Wan Kenobi: Dooku’s escape plans, no doubt. He was fully prepared for this. This was never about Oner or the Crystal Mines.






Obi-Wan Kenobi: We’re can’t do anything about Dooku now, Anakin. There’ll be another time. All we can do is treat the wounded until help arrives. These troopers don’t have much time.

Anakin Skywalker: (thinking) But…………I can’t fail……again……I won’t……
