Anakin's Final Betrayal

Preface

"Don't give up Padmé, save your strength." His voice was so far away, and yet thundering in her ears. She could hear him saying something else, but couldn't make it out for the life of her. The brightness of the infirmary lights stung her eyes when she tried to open them, and she clenched a fist, gasping as her aching body gave itself to a dull throb. The pain surrounding her was unbearable and she tried, feebly to reach out to him... grab his hand.. anything...

"I can't... I .." she whispered faintly, and then was gone.
