Chapter Seven: We've got company!
"No, father, no." Luke cried. But then he heard something.
"Ouch! Why didn't I listen to Obi-Wan when he told me to stay away from power cufflinks?"
Was that his father? It didn't sound like his father. Unless………….
Yes! He was healed! His father had shaggy, brownish- blonde hair, and very nice eyes. Anakin was warring some black leather, Jedi outfit.
"Look at me! I'm healed! I'm healed! I'm healed!"
Anakin rushed up to Luke, and succeeded in picking his son up and hugging him in the air while spinning Luke around in at the same time.
When they were finally finished hugging, Luke looked at his father again.
"You hardly look older than me! Maybe a few years, but, that's amazing! It must be the Forces' way of giving you one more chance."
"Well it could have thought of a less painful way to do it. But hay! It was way worth it!"
"Right there with 'ya!"
Luke looked up to the sky and saw a ship coming down.
"That's the Emperors' personal ship."
"The Emperor! The Emperor came here!"
"He must have felt a disturbance in the Force and came to deal with it personally. Come on."
Anakin lead Luke back down into the safety of the arena, and then headed to the old conference room.
"Wait here," he instructed Luke.
"Wait, what are you doing?"
"I'm going to face the Emperor."
"No way! You can't! You just came back to the good side, you're not strong enough to resist him yet!"
"Luke, all my life I've waited for an opportunity like this, and here it is, screaming, go Ani! Go Ani! Go…."
Anakin stopped his cheering, and looked at his son.
"I'll let you face him on one condition; I'm going with you!"
"Well let's go kick some honey buns!"
Chapter Eight: This Is How We Do It
Anakin and Luke walked towards the ship with firm determination. This was it. After so many years of injustice, they had a chance to make a change.
Palpatine saw them. He kept his face neutral, but with the Force, Anakin could tell that he was confused, and scared.
"Hello your Emperorness," Anakin said with a cocky grin.
"Lord Vader, what are you doing?"
"I'm fulfilling my destiny, your Lordship."
"If you wish to fulfill your destiny, than stop this foolishness right now."
"I've always been foolish. I can't help it."
Palpatine felt the resolve in his former apprentice.
Suddenly, without warning, blue lightning started pouring from the Emperor's hands. But Anakin was expecting this, and blocked this easily. But as the lightning persisted, it became harder and harder.
Luke tried to slice the sith in half, but Palpatine simply aimed one hand at Luke while still pouring out lightning at Anakin. It was warring Luke down much faster than Anakin since Luke had practically no training. Anakin glanced at his son, and realized that he wasn't going to last much longer. He had to do something!
"Hay, Palpy! Over here!"
A blaster bolt whizzed by the Sith Lord. Palpatine turned around to meet the new threat. This was the opening Anakin was looking for. He lashed out at the thing that had enslaved him for nineteen years, and cut him in half. And the Emperor was no more.
"That's it? I did it? He's dead?"
"Father, you did it!"
For the third time that day, father and son hugged each other. But unlike the other times, this was a hug of victory.
Then they heard footsteps behind them, and turned to see who their unexpected ails were.
"Han! Leia! Chewie!"
Leia kissed Luke's cheek, and ruffled his friend's hair, and Chewie gave him a hug that only a wookie could give. When they were finished, Luke turned toward Anakin.
"Everyone, I'd like you to meet my father, Anakin Skywalker."
Chapter Nine: The Chapter That Ends It All
Later that day, everyone was sitting in the Falcons' living space talking to Anakin. Leia still didn't trust him after Luke had told them that Anakin had also been Darth Vader. But she could think of no reason not to trust him. After all, he had just killed the Emperor.
Anakin was speaking to her. She made herself listen.
………."look so much like my late wife. What was your mothers' name?"
"Um, my adopted mothers' name was Brehu."
"What was your real mothers' name?"
"I think it was Padme Amidala."
"You've gotta be kidding me!"
"No, I'm not. Why?"
"That's my mothers' name!" Luke said.
"Does that mean what I think it means?"
Luke, Leia and Anakin stared at eachother for a whole minute before they finaly got over the shock. Then they all hugged each other, as a family.
"Darn it!" Han said.
Everyone turned around to face him.
"What?" Leia asked.
"If Luke is Leia's brother, than I won't get any competition."
