9. Chapter 9.

Aylee walks through the castle towards the war room; in the centre of the room a huge map of the entire galaxy under Aylee's control. Scattered all over the board chess pieces representing each squadron and the enemy they were fighting. Aylee traced her fingers across the edge of the board, observing each region, where each piece was, she stops for a moment reaching over. Taking a piece in her hand she runs her thumb over the pieces remembering her father's teachings of war, "Aylee, great leaders can not inspire greatness within others from a far, they need to be with in their people."  With those words ringing through her mind, Aylee places the piece in her hand on the table far away from where it had been and in the centre of a battle field. 

Aylee waits in the throne room for her advisers, commanders and the Jedi. They walked into the room together seeing Aylee on her throne. "Your Grace?" Francis asked as each one bowed their heads to her, "Great leaders can not inspire greatness from a far; My father always taught me that, and that's why I have chosen to go to Speverus," she stood up from her throne walking down the stairs towards the men and woman who stood in front of her, "Queen Aylee, I don't think-" An elderly man begins looking at his young Queen, "No, this isn't up for discussion. I have made up my mind," Aylee walks through the crowd, "Captain Rex will be accompanying me not as my security guard, which there will be no need for, but as my equal, we will speak with the King and Queen of Speverus and organise a peace treaty that benefits both Nations.
Aylee smiles at Rex who smiles back at her before she leaves the room. "Oh and Rex, I want to go today," she says as she reaches the door. 

Aylee begins packing her bags as quickly as she can, she throws in a few dresses to wear to dinners and formal events that Queens need to look good at, as well as jeans and shirts she could wear while with in her ranks on the fields. Aylee turns to her wardrobe taking out a black jacket from Jason's box of clothes; it had her name on it; she tries it on, and it fits like a glove, black leather embroidered with golden vines everywhere. Aylee removes the jacket placing it at the top of her bag before zipping it up. As she walks towards the door she notices a piece of paper on the ground;
"I love you
        - J.K."

Aylee smiled to herself stuffing the note in her pocket. 

With Sterling trailing closely behind her Aylee marched into the hangers where all the ships were. "Aylee!" Shouted Francis behind her, "Master Polfri" Aylee answers him rolling her eyes and turning to face him, "Aylee you are being irrational!" Francis tries his hardest, "Maybe I am being irrational but if you were watching your people suffer the way I am watching mine would you not do everything it takes to protect them?" Aylee says once again trying to walk away from Francis, he grabs her arm, forcing her to turn back to him, "I know" he says raising his eyebrows and looking down at Aylee's stomach, "You're carrying a child within you, another human begin Aylee, you can't make irrational discussions on a whim like this" Aylee looks at Francis shocked, "All the more reason to end this pointless war don't you think?" she says looking at him shaking her head, she removes her arm from his grip and walks onto her ship.
Aylee sits at the control panels and begins flicking switches; her mind thought about what irrational things Francis would do to get her to return. Did he know that Jason was the father? Would he tell her council men? Or worse the Jedi Council? Would it be worse if people knew?
She took a deep breath and tried to relax as Rex boarded the ship, he took his seat beside her. He looks at her concerned but doesn't know what to say so he helps her take the ship off and as they exit Naetunes atmosphere he turns to her, "Aylee this is the right thing to do" he says, and she smiles at him as they enter hyperspace.
