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.


11. Uneasy

       At last the enemy was destroyed, and the Jedi made a hasty exit before Zartek could send out reinforcements.  Anakin was silent on the way back to the Jedi vessel.
        "Why so silent, Anakin?" Obi-Wan asked, turning towards his padawan.  "Normally, you would be exulting over your victory."
        Anakin sighed.  "Oh- nothing," he replied.  "I just feel uneasy, that's all."
        Mace Windu spoke up.  "I feel it, too," he remarked.  "A slight disturbance in the Force."  He shook his head.  "We all must be overtired. It's been a long day. The sooner we get to Coruscant, the better."
        "I agree," said Obi-Wan.
        Anakin changed the subject, knowing the other Jedi were worried about him.  "So... Mand'ii is a Jedi padawan?" he probed, still surprised that he hadn't sensed the truth.
        Obi-Wan nodded.  "Yes, and we were surprised to find that she was still a slave here.  Years ago, we sent her on a mission to this area, but she mysteriously disappeared.  We were shocked when we saw her from your footage.  We only caught a brief glimpse of her, but it was enough."
        "When we lost contact with you, we knew something was wrong," Mace broke in.  "That's why we came to your rescue."
        "And I'm so glad you did," Anakin said feelingly.  Obi-Wan gave him a strange look, but he remained silent.
        "The ship's up ahead," Mace informed them.
        The four Jedi boarded the large vessel, and before long they were in hyperspace.
        "We must have been wrong," Mace remarked, referring to his and Anakin's feeling from earlier.  "Nothing seems to be out of the-"
        "General!" the pilot shouted from the cockpit.  "We seem to have a slight... problem..."
        Mace and Obi-Wan started for the door.  Anakin hurriedly stood up to follow them, but Mace shook his head.
        "You stay here with Mand'ii," he ordered.
        "But-" Anakin protested, not wanting to miss out on the action.  He could already hear laser blasts from outside.
        "That's an order, Anakin," Mace said sharply.
        "You'd best do as he says, my padawan," said Obi-Wan.
        Anakin sighed.  "Yes, Master."
