A/N- This may be the hardest chapter I have to write, in this movella. -Annabeth Shadownight.
Mara hid on the ship. Where Padmé told her to in the Cockpit. Padmé sat in the pilots seat and prepared for take off. Padmé looked that she could cry at any second.
"Why are we going to Mustfar?" Mara asked Padmé
"To see Anakin, to see if what Obi-Wan told me about is true" Padmé replied
"It is True, I saw it. But not really."
"How is that"
"Because he didn't kill me"
Padmé didn't reply. She took off unaware that Obi-Wan was on board in a escape pod.
As Padmé landed, she looked at the buildings set on the hard magma of the volcanic planet. As the lava flowed underneath the metal landing platform. Padmé looked at a command building. On the balcony was Anakin Skywalker running towards the ship. Padmé stood up and opened the door tho the ship and ran out and hugged Anakin. Mara couldn't hear what they were saying, but she heard a noise. Mara was curious, pushing a strand of her blonde hair out of her eyes she went to investigate. She walked down the passage way careful to avoid the open door, she heard a ringing a sound that was calling her. She followed the sound and reached the escape pod door. Mara was tall for her age, even though she was two she was taller than most of the younglings in her class. She still couldn't reach the panel, Mara sat down and stared at the door. What ever was in there had to come out at some point. It felt like seconds, but soon she fell asleep.
Mara felt strong arms pick her up and carry her to the bedroom on the ship. The dreams came instantly, she was crouching behind Master Yoda's chair, she saw Anakin come in with his lightsaber and the boy walkout and Anakin slay him. Mara grabbed Master Yoda's spare lightsaber and tried to defend herself but she found the blue blazing light cut through her...
She woke with a start. She was alive, she wasn't dead. She jumped with fright when she heard a urgent robotic voice come through the closed doors
"Oh R2-D2 what are we going to do?" said the voice
A series of beeps and whirls followed. Mara slowly slid her legs over the side of the bed. The bed was high off the ground, for Mara. She slowly devised a plan she turned around and slid off. Landing on the floor with a thud making a racket. A blue astrometric droid came in.
"Hello there" Mara said "Who are you?"
The droid made Whirling and beeping sounds. The other droid came in, who Mara recognised as C-3PO
"Hello See-Threepio" Mara said pushing herself up "Where's Padmé?"
"Oh, Mara. I'm afraid it's quite bad." See-Threepio said "Come quickly"
"Alright, I'm coming don't get your gears in a twist" Mara said pointing to the small droid "Who is this"
The blue droid made a series of beeps. Mara didn't understand, she was going to have to learn droid some day. Luckily C-3PO told her "This is R2-D2, he says he very pleased to meet you"
"Hi, R2-D2" Mara said
"Come on, Mistress" Threepio said "This way"
Mara stood up, almost falling over she grabbed onto the small astrometric droid. R2-D2 moved sharply making Mara fall. The small droid made a series of whirls and beeps. Mara looked at C-3PO to translate, he did
"He said, he would rather you not do that"
"Well help me up" Mara said
"I'm afraid mistress my joints have rusted"
"Droids" Mara said to herself Mara dragged herself towards the door. Grabbing on to the wall she lifted herself up.
"Let's go then" Mara said
"Right this way mistress" Threepio said.
Mara followed the two droids out of the room towards the cockpit as they reached the door that lead down to the planet. She stopped seeing two blue blurs on the Rocky Mountainside. Mara fell as she felt a disturbance in the Force landing on the floor of the ship, she stared towards the buildings. Using the force she shielded every living thing around her, she curled into a ball. Hearing footsteps Mara looked up to see Master Obi-Wan walking towards the ship. The Jedi Master knelt down next to Mara.
"Are you okay?" He asked
Mara managed a small nod before being picked up by Obi-Wan and carried towards the cockpit. Obi-Wan placed Mara on the Co-Pilot chair. Shivering she curled up into the ball and stared at Obi-Wan.
"Now let me get this on auto-pilot" Obi-Wan pondered "Great, I hate flying"
"Why do you hate flying?" Mara asked quietly
"I just do young one"
"My name is Mara"
"Well then Mara, can I have a small blood sample?" Obi-Wan asked
"Why?" Mara asked
"You ask a lot of questions Mara"
"I'm so cold" Mara mentioned
Obi-Wan looked at Mara concerned "Get some rest I'll wake you when we reach where we are going"
Mara looked at Obi-Wan and said "Yes Master"
She closed her eyes and the nightmares started.
