Undercover: Anakin Skywalker

Anakin Skywalker is forced to go undercover as a slave, where his pride, strength, and willpower will be challenged like never before.


18. Desperate

        "What?  N-no, I can't tell you that," Anakin stuttered, a look of horror on his face.
        "You'll change your mind soon enough," Dooku chuckled.  He reached out his hands and blasted the padawan with Force lightning.
        "AHHHH!" Anakin screamed, his mind clouding over with pain.  "STOP!  PLEASE!"
        Count Dooku smirked, enjoying the situation.  "Will you give me the information or not?"
        "N-no, I-I can't- betray t-the R-republic!"  Anakin protested, desperately trying to resist the pain.
        "Tell me!"  The lightning intensified, if such a thing was possible.
        "I-I can't!"
        The Force-lightning stopped.  Anakin gasped for breath, his chest heaving with pain.
        "Foolish boy," the Sith sneered, backhanding Anakin across the face.  Anakin could taste the blood pooling in his mouth.
        "I hope you aren't damaging my property," a voice said from the doorway.
        Anakin struggled against the restraints, trying out of instinct to see who was at the door.  He knew, however, who it was.
        "Oh, no, Zartek," Count Dooku replied, playing along.  "I was just... having some fun with your slave."
        Anakin growled and bared his teeth at the Sith, who simply smirked down at him.
        "I can release him if you want," Dooku offered.
        Zartek smiled.  "Yes, please do."
        The restraints were released, and Anakin immediately leaped off the torture table and straight towards Count Dooku, aiming for the lightsaber attached to the Sith's belt.  Dooku laughed and used the Force to push him to the floor.  "I wouldn't do that if I were you."
        Anakin scrambled out of the way, retreating to the far side of the room.  Zartek pulled out his whip and lashed it towards the padawan, but Anakin leaped to the side.
        "I've had enough of this nonsense," Zartek growled.  Dooku stretched out his hand and used the Force to paralyze Anakin, while the slaver marched over and bound the boy's wrists.
        Anakin glowered as Dooku released him from the Force-grip.
        "Insolent slave," Zartek sneered, raising his whip above Anakin's back.
        Anakin shut his eyes and waited for the pain to come.
