Seconds later the droid sputtered and Anakin's voice came out of it. "Good... we don't know who might be listening in one way or another so I'm glad to have heard no reply. Had this droid heard a true report it would have detonated the explosive within, killing you both. I shall return in a day or so and will contact you then.

Anakin grinned. "I have nothing to compare your comments to; I never knew my father - my mother said I was conceived by the Force, or she was so ashamed of who my father was it was a lie she told me instead. Also, I am clearly saying I'm going to kill the man I should have some allegiance to. I'm not trying to disrespect your comments or considerations...," he said as he went to a bar and poured them a pair of drinks, "but what I really want to know is will YOU support me." And he handed her the glass and took a drink from his own.
She was intoxicating. For the briefest of moments he forgot about Padme and found himself desiring another woman for the first time ever.
