"ANAKIN! Listen to me! There is still a chance to save Padmé!" Obi-Wan yelled at his former apprentice, who was now a servant of the dark side.
"You're lying!" Anakin said as he took another swing at Obi-Wan as they fought tooth and nail on Mustafar.
Obi-Wan had snuck aboard Padmé's ship as she flew to Mustafar to track down Anakin, shortly after Obi-Wan had talked with her in her apartment on Courscant. There he revealed to her that Anakin had fallen to the dark side and was now under the control of Darth Sidious who had been revealed as the newly titled, Emperor Palpatine.
And Obi-Wan had also learned one of the reasons Anakin had turned. It wasn't for power, but for protection; the protection of Padmé and their unborn child. It was the fear of loss that drove Anakin to this dark brink. If only Obi-Wan could use that fear to reverse what had been done…
"What would your mother say if she saw you like this?" Obi-Wan cried out as he blocked another one of Anakin's blows.
That worked. Anakin stopped dead in his tracks and just stared at Obi-Wan. He did have a point. What would his mother say if she saw Anakin like this? He knew that she would be disappointed in him. She would have been disappointed because he destroyed all that he had grown to love. He wasn't the same little boy that she had raised to know nothing of greed and only of kindness.
Obi-Wan saw his chance to grind away more at Anakin's emotions.
"What about Qui-Gon? He sacrificed so much for you. What do you think he would think about all of this?"
Yes, Obi-Wan had a point. What would Qui-Gon Jinn think about him now? Qui-Gon had always seemed to be the only one who had faith in him. And now…he could feel that Obi-Wan had faith in him as well. Maybe Obi-Wan was right…
"How can she be saved!" Anakin demanded as he powered off his lightsaber.
Just to be on the safe side, Obi-Wan kept his on, but off to his side. "Come back down the path of the light side…"
