The Mysteries of Love

Chapter 2

Dinner with an Angel

Anakin walked into the banqueting hall, following his Master, Obi Wan Kenobi. He grinned politely as he sat in the seat opposite Senator Bail Organa. There were two other seats opposite them across the sturdy oak table. He studied the Senator for a second. He was a small man, lean and friendly features. They were all poured a goblet of ruby wine, the gold leaf chalices lined with sapphires. Anakin studied the cutlery, which was engraved with the same markings and patterned with matching sapphires. The house staff brought out dishes, filled with exotic smelling foods as the last diners entered the room. Anakin glanced at the young woman. She was rather petit, with dark curled hair and sparkling chocolate eyes. Beside her walked a toddler with blonde tresses and deep azure eyes. He glanced back at the adult woman, the way her dress hugged her smooth curves and showed her slender legs as she walked. Using his Jedi skills he managed to hold in the gasp that would have otherwise be forthcoming. She was so beautiful, the most beautiful being he'd ever seen. "Ah," Bail said softly, "Master Jedis, this is my wife, Padme Amidala and my daughter, Lyra Organa. Padme, this is Master Obi Wan Kenobi and his Padawan Anakin Skywalker."

"Nice to meet you Master Kenobi, Padawan Skywalker," she said, extending her hand. Her voice was smooth and melodic, Anakin sighed.

"As well, Senator," Obi Wan replied. Anakin looked up; this was the Senator he and his Master had been assigned to? All of a sudden the mission seemed much more exciting.

"Padme these Jedi have been assigned to protect you during your trip," Bail informed his wife.

The meal passed slowly for Anakin while his Master and the two Senators discussed politics. He intermittently put in his opinion but mostly he concentrated on what he was eating and making faces at the little girl across the table from him. On more than one occasion he caught the Senator Amidala gazing at him in wonder, she was every part the opposite of what he had expected, young, beautiful, curious, she excited him in a way he had never been before.

Obi Wan and Bail went to the Senator's office to discuss the mission while a nurse came to take Lyra to bed. Padme and Anakin were left sitting across from each other.

"So," Anakin started.


"What will you be doing once we arrive on Coruscant?" Anakin asked softly. Her eyes bore into him, in a seductive manner not in the way his Mother's had when she knew he had done something disobedient. He gave her a Skywalker trademark grin. The Senator however did not smile back, her eyes turning colder.

"A very important Senate session for the Republic," she did not elaborate.

Anakin sighed; she didn't trust him, "Oh, okay then."

"I still don't see why I need this extra security, it's so disruptive," she said, angrily.

"Everyone just wants you safe, I'm sure, Senator," Anakin reassured, "we'll stay as undetectable as possible."

"I will retire now," she replied, simply.

"Goodnight, Milady," he said as she left. Anakin groaned, perhaps this mission would be hard after all.
