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.


14. Defeated

   For the second time that day, Mace Windu switched off the transmitter.  He turned to Anakin.
        "He's sending a small detachment ship to come over and pick you up," the Jedi Master explained.
        Anakin nodded, cringing.  Obi-Wan laid a hand on his shoulder.  "Are you sure you want to go through with this?"
        "Yes, Master.  I know it is necessary," he replied.
        "We'd best get to the main hangar," Mace suggested.  "I ordered a clone squad to stand by and make sure an attack is not attempted."
        "Good idea," Obi-Wan said.  He led his padawan to the main hangar.
        In a few minutes, a small shuttle eased down into the hangar.  "I'm proud of you, Anakin," Obi-Wan whispered, just as the ramp lowered.  Zartek and several of his guards stepped out.
        "Here is the boy, as promised," Obi-Wan said brusquely, shoving Anakin towards the slave trader.
        "You!" Zartek hissed.  "You're the one who posed as a slave trader.  You're a Jedi!"
        Obi-Wan waved a hand dismissively.  "Yes, but none of that matters now.  You have what you want, we have what we want," he said.
        "And the girl?"
        "That was never part of the deal," Obi-Wan said sharply.
        Zartek shrugged.  "Have it your way.  She wasn't particularly valuable anyway.  Now this boy- he's a real bargain."  He ran his fat fingers through Anakin's hair, and the padawan shuddered.
        "All right, you have the boy," Obi-Wan said, trying desperately not to show his emotions.  "Now I highly suggest you leave."
        "Agreed."  Zartek smirked.  "My slave and I have some things to sort out."  He again yanked Anakin's hair, and the boy yelped.
        Obi-Wan cringed.  "All right then."
        Zartek shoved Anakin into his shuttle and ordered the pilot to take off.  Immediately, the shuttle exited the main hangar and sped toward the Separatist cruiser looming ahead.
        No one noticed Mace Windu, who had entered the hangar and planted a tracking device on Zartek's shuttle just before the ship sped off.
