In a U shaped, open stadium, thousands of people stood either in the stands or on the cemented ground as a lone, body armored female walked alone from one end of the field till 2/3’s to the other side, where an old, haggard, worn and dirty suited man stood tied up to a thick wooden post and looked up at the female with tired eyes.  A large podium towered behind the old man and four men and women stood in black suits and dresses behind a grey haired, tall woman as she stood at the furthermost head of the triangular shaped stage, opened her arms and hands and spoke aloud with the speakers echoing her voice, “Today marks the beginning of The True Unity!  The last Unity was false as The Capital indulged itself with the sacrifices of the other territories just to pursue their luxurious lifestyle rather than help those that were less fortunate!  To celebrate the true meaning of Unity and our liberation, we begin with the execution of President Jovan by our idol and inspiration of the resistance, Govar Cassius!” Govar’s black skin remained dry under the thick black body armor he wore as he carried his .30 caliber scoped sniper rifle and watched the new president with a blank, firm gaze.  He knew, before entering the arena, President Abba orchestrated the attacks along the siege lines all around The Capital and cut off communications with The Capital to not hear Jovan’s announcement of his surrender and resulted in the meaningless deaths of 213 soldiers and civilians along the siege lines (including his teenage sister who was a nurse) to create the final battle President Abba wanted and the deaths of over hundreds of soldiers and medics that fought towards the capitol building and the home of President Jovan who was still more than willing to surrender.  Govar does his best to cover his anger towards President Abba and knows that if he kills or confronts her, it will most certainly result in his death, including his grieving mother and father before and as he stood in the arena.  


    “May your bullet aim straight and true!” Govar felt surprised as Abba gave the ending of her speech, but kept his expression blank and firm as watched the newly proclaimed smile down upon him and left the attention from her to Govar as his next role is to execute former President Jovan and Govar raised and aimed his rifle to begin the execution.  There is utter silence as Govar hesitated from pulling the trigger as he wanted to kill Jovan for ordering the execution of his grandparents and nearly wiping out all of his friends and neighbors in his territory, but if he executes him then he will lose his chance to kill Abba as she will no doubt have the full support of the people and fulfilling another wish Abba wanted.  If he shoots Abba instead, he knows that he will be torn apart by everyone within the arena and his mother and father will no doubt suffer the same fate and Govar will be forever known as a traitor to all of those that befriended him and Jovan will have another death under his name before he dies and gain him more satisfaction.  Someone in the crowd behind him broke the silence and yelled, “We believe you Sparrow!” As if that person is reading Govar’s mind and Govar spoke to himself, “I must.” He pulled his rifle only nothing happened and he remained still, as if something is holding him in place, and he cringed a little in puzzlement as he tried to move but couldn’t.  He then heard a metal groaning sound above him, followed by multiple gasps as the crowd, President’s Jovan, Abba and everyone else looked up and past Govar.  Govar mentally spoke to himself, “What is going on, why are they all afraid?” Govar tried to resist the force that is holding him and miraculously is able to turn his head and looked up in shock and awe as he saw multiple white large clouds and piercing from the clouds appeared the shinning, gleaming white hull of an Imperial Star Destroyer flying overhead.


    “President’s Jovan and Abba, you will come with me!” The pressure on Govar’s body is gone and Govar turned to see the source of the emotionless, robotic voice and saw Lord Valkyrie walking towards him, but looking up and past Govar with Captain Cruz and two squads of stormtroopers (with a Shadow Trooper leading each squad) following behind till they stopped just a few feet away from Govar.  Abba called out, “We will not!” The people in the arena looked at Lord Valkyrie and his escort with angry, threatening stares and many of them began to grumble to each other as they closed in and the troopers and Captain Cruz raised their blaster rifles as they readied to defend themselves while Lord Valkyrie continued staring at Abba as if ignoring the angry crowd.  Abba continued, “We do not answer to foreign invaders and we will do anything to destroy those that does us harm!  Your show of strength from your airship does not scare The True Unity and...” Lord Valkyrie interrupted with an angry outburst, “SPARE ME!” Abba took a step back as she looked with wide eyes and her skin turned a shade pale as Lord Valkyrie continued, “You have lied to your own people and ignored the former president’s call for surrender before you attacked The Capital and even orchestrated the murder of your own soldiers and innocent civilians along the siege lines just so you can enjoy the spectacle of the last battle!  You even ordered a communications blackout on The Capital to prevent President’s Jovan’s announcement of his surrender!” Abba quickly regained her composure and replied, “That is a lie!  You have no....” “IT IS NOT!” Everyone, except Lord Valkyrie and his party, looked shocked as they heard and saw Govar speak out against Abba and Lord Valkyrie looked upon him as Govar continued (with growing anger on his face as he struggled to hold it back), “And I am not the only one that knows the truth!” Some of the bystanders gasped while others grumbled in anger as Abba gave Govar a cold stare even as she replied, “Govar has suffered a lot more than we have.  We understand that because what he has suffered may overcloud his judgement and we bare with him as he heals.” She then looked back upon Lord Valkyrie as she smiles and continues, “As I said, you have no proof!  Using veterans and victims of this long and terrible war does not warrant you or anyone to use them for your personal advantage!” Govar’s right lip twitched as he struggled to control his anger as Abba smiled and continued to speak to Lord Valkyrie, “I and a handful of my closest advisors heard your speech Mr. Valkyrie and now as we stand we see that you are the hypocrite!  We do not possess a threat to other worlds in our solar system and beyond because as you are aware we do not have the capability to even leave our planet!” Lord Valkyrie spoke, “You are wrong Ms. President.  You do have the weapons but like always you are keeping them hidden, just like how you were able to hide your involvement and manipulate the fight in The Capital.  And now that you defeated former President Jovan, you now possess even more missiles to launch against any ship or nearby habitable planet that you deem a threat and I will not allow it.” Abba gave Valkyrie a look of disgust as she snorted at him and spoke with a look of confidence as she stood firm on the podium, “Again you lie.  You will do anything or make up an excuse to conquer and cloak it by saying you are trying to maintain order in the galaxy when it is you who are...” Govar aimed his rifle, in a blink of an eye, and aimed at President Abba’s head when suddenly a red lightsaber speared Abba at the left side of her chest (her heart) and everyone (including Abba) looked shocked as they looked and took notice that Lord Valkyrie had put his right hand up (as if in a beckoning motion to Abba) and his sword had flew from his belt straight at Abba’s heart with half of the red beam sticking out of her back.


    The spectators and Govar remained shocked and some of them even gasped as the sword pulled out, the red beam dissipated, and flew straight back into Lord Valkyrie’s outstretched hand before he put his sword back onto his belt and President Abba fell back and dropped dead on the podium.  The people in the stands and podium (behind where President Abba stood) stood as if ready to run while the people in the arena, behind Govar and Lord Valkyrie, murmured or talked angrily as if a riot was about to begin and Captain Cruz and the troopers raised their blaster rifles at them and Captain Cruz called out, “Stand down or we will open fire!” “At ease captain!” Captain Cruz tilted her head back as Lord Valkyrie gave the order and he continued, “If they wish to confront me, let them do so.” Captain Cruz lowered her rifle and she ordered to the troopers, “Stand down.” The troopers obeyed and lowered their rifles and Lord Valkyrie ordered, “Get out of the line of fire captain.” Captain Cruz walked away with her rifle across her chest as the troopers followed behind her in two lines as they marched away from the gathering angry crowd.  The people in the crowd yelled/screamed in anger, “MURDERER!  FACIST PIG! SACK OF SHIT!” And other angry and vulgar statements as Lord Valkyrie faced the U shaped angry mob in front and around him and Govar as Lord Valkyrie’s body stood calmly as he warned the crowd aloud over their angry cries, “This is your only warning, if you attempt to kill me you will all die!” A dirty middle aged man yelled in the lead of the angry mob, “FUCK YOU!” And the angry mob of around a hundred people charged and Govar looked calm and pulled out a small black pill as he knew this is his end when the crowd ran around him and one of the people knocked the pill from his grasp and he looked startled as the angry crowd ignored him and charged straight at Lord Valkyrie as he stood with eerie calm.
