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.


16. Angry

  The whipping abruptly stopped.  Anakin lay on the floor, gasping for breath.  He finally looked up to face none other than Count Dooku.
        With one glance, he knew it was the Sith.  He made a desperate attempt to stand, only to be firmly pushed back to his knees by Zartek.
        "Count Dooku," Anakin glowered.
        "Very perceptive, young Skywalker," the Sith mocked, stalking over to the padawan.  "I understand you're a slave again."
        Anakin narrowed his eyes.  "What do you mean, 'again?'"
        "You were a slave when you were young, correct?"
        "How did you know that?" Anakin demanded.
        "The dark side of the Force is very powerful," Count Dooku stated simply.  "Zartek, allow me to borrow your slave for a few minutes?"  He smirked mockingly at Anakin.
        Anakin glared at the Sith.  "For the record, I'm not a slave," he said.  "You can stop calling me that."
        "Oh, really?"  Count Dooku jerked Anakin's chain.  "Then why are you wearing this?"
        Anakin cringed.  If Count Dooku was trying to humiliate him, it was certainly working. 
        He attempted to change the subject.  "So... Zartek is working for you?"
        "Yes, your master has been working for me," Count Dooku replied.  "For someone so strong with the Force, I'm surprised you didn't guess-"
        "He is NOT my master!" Anakin yelled, his eyes burning with fury.   "I am NOT a slave, no matter what you think, and I REFUSE to let you call me that!"
        "Temper, temper," Count Dooku smirked, seemingly unfazed by Anakin's reaction.  He seized the boy's chain and yanked him to his feet.  "Let's go."
        He pulled on the chain, but Anakin yanked it back with all of his strength, digging his feet into the floor.
        "Oh, I wouldn't do that if I were you," Dooku mocked.  "Unless you want another whipping- I'm sure your master would be happy to provide that for you."
        Anakin gritted his teeth.  He knew Dooku was purposely trying to make him angry, and he desperately tried to resist the temptation.  Instead, he asked, "Where are we going?"
        He smiled sadistically.  "To the torture chambers."
