Chapter 1: Traitorous Thoughts

Lux needed help. He was in way over his head. Count Dooku had already had his mom killed, and if Lux wasn't careful, he would die, too.

But who would help him? None of his friends would dare oppose Dooku. They would more likely turn him in as a traitor. No, he needed someone elso to help him, someone who would help regardless of the rules, with no thought of the consequences.

He needed Ahsoka.


Ahsoka woke as her holoprojector rang out loudly in her quarters. Wondering who would call at this time of night, she rubbed her eyes and got up to answer it.

As soon as she saw the person on the other end, she was wide awake. She hadn't seen Lux in ages, and it was impossible to holochat.

"Lux? How are you? I've missed you so much!"

That was true enough. Ahsoka thought about Lux all the time. She sometimes had trouble shielding her thoughts from her master, especially when they meditated.

"I've missed you too, Ahsoka. And I'm- well, honestly, I have been better. Things have gotten tough since my mom died. And I need your help, Ahsoka."

"What's wrong, Lux?"

"You were right about Count Dooku. He had my mother assassinated, and I need to get out of here. That's where I need your help."

"So, you want me to help you get out of your home? But where would you go afterwards?"

"Afterwards? Well, I haven't really thought about that. Probably to Coruscant, with you."

"Well, I might be able to sneak away from the Jedi temple for a while, but it'll be risky."

"Ahsoka, you know you don't have to help. If you don't want to, you don't have to. I would never forgive myself if something happened to you because of me."

"No, I want to help. We're friends, aren't we? And friends help each other. Besides, I miss you and I want to see you. Don't worry, I have a plan to get there already."

"Well, then, I'll see you soon. Please, since I don't kknow when you can get here, meet me at my home. You do remember where my home is, right?"

And he made sure she remembered where he lived before signing off and leaving her to plan her escape.
