"The separatists have been taken care of, my master." I said to the image of Lord Sidious.
"It is finished, then. You have restored peace and justice to the galaxy." He drawled with pleasure. "Send the message to the ship of the Trade Federation. All driod units must shut down immediately." He ordered.
"Very good, my Lord." I said in agreement. His image faded and I heard one of the computers beeping and buzzing on the desk. I looked at it and it showed a large speeder flying toward the landing platform. I reached out with the Force to check who it was and knew immediately.
Padme. What is she doing here? I ran out to meet here and quickly wrapped my arms around her.
"I saw your ship." I said, pulling away. "What are you doing out here?"
"I was so worried about you. Obi-Wan…told me terrible things," she said, breathing heavily and holding onto my arms for support. I stiffened at the sound of Obi-Wan's name.
"What things?" I asked, trying to keep the anger at bay.
"He said you've turned to the Dark Side…that you…killed younglings!" she breathed, shaking her magnificent head.
"Obi-Wan is trying to turn you against me." I explained. It was the truth. Obi-Wan told her everything just so she could betray me. She won't. She loves me. She's my wife and mother of my child.
"He cares about us."
"Us…" I repeated slowly.
"He knows…. He wants to help you." She said with desperation.
I don't need help. Ecspecially not from Obi-Wan Kenobi.
"Anakin…. all I want is your love." She said softly, looking at me intently with her beautiful brown eyes.
Why only love, Padme? I can give you so much more.
"Love won't save you, Padme. Only my new powers can do that." I said, hoping that would make her understand why I had done everything that I had done.
"At what cost?" she snapped. "You're a good person, don't do this!"
"I won't loose you the way I lost my mother." I said quietly. That's why I turned to the Dark Side. For Padme's life. "I have become more powerful then any Jedi has ever dreamed of and I'm doing it for you. To protect you." I explained thoroughly, my voice becoming angry off its own accord.
"Come away with me," she pleaded, putting her soft hands on both sides of my face. "Help me raise our child. Leave everything else behind, while we still can!"
"Don't you see? We don't have to run away anymore! I have brought peace to the Republic. I'm more powerful than the Chancellor—I—I can overthrow him!" I said loudly, the wonderful idea coming out before I had even thought of it. "And together you and I can rule the galaxy, make things the way we want them to be!"
As I was talking, Padme had backed away from with fear and disbelief evident on her lovely face. No, Padme, don't be afraid of me…
"I don't believe what believe what I'm hearing…" she said slowly. "Obi-Wan was right. You've changed."
I could feel the hate coursing through my veins as she said Obi-Wan's name yet again. "I don't want to hear anymore about Obi-Wan. The Jedi turned against me, don't you turn against me!" I ordered.
"I don't know you anymore…" she sobbed, and I was crushed to see her eyes welling up. "Anakin…you're breaking my heart…" I stared down at her in confusion and anger. I was trying to save her! I was doing this for her! Why was she doing this? Obi Wan was poisoning her thoughts, making me into the enemy. I was not breaking her heart. She was mistaken. I love her. I would never hurt her. "You're going down a path I can't follow!"
"Because of Obi-Wan?" I asked, feeling his presence with the Force. He was standing on top of the steps to the ship.
"Because of what you've done, what you plan to do!" I did it for you, Padme. All for you! "Stop, stop now, come back!" she begged. "I love you!"
I glared back at her. No you don't. "LIAR!" I yelled in her face, my voice full of anger and pain. I felt my heart shattering into pieces. Padme, how could you do this to me? To us?
"NO!" she cried, acting like she just noticed Obi-Wan.
"YOU ARE WITH HIM! YOU BROUGHT HIM HERE TO KILL ME!" I yelled. I lost control of my anger and brought the Force to her neck to strangle her.
"Let her go, Anakin." Obi-Wan ordered.
"Anakin," whispered pleadingly.
"Let. Her. Go."
I released my grasp on Padme and she fell to the ground, uncouncious. With the Force, I felt that she was still alive. I felt a moments relief. We can still be together…
I turned my glare to my former master. Just one more thing left.
