INT – PROTOTYPE TYE FIGHTER

DARTH CARNAGE mans the controls as Anakin paces moodily behind him.

DARTH CARNAGE
I do not understand why we must go to Coruscant, a
hotbed of Jedi activity. We must keep a low profile,
master.

ANAKIN
No not tell me what to do. If you must know, we are
going there to rescue my son, Chappie, from the hands
of a demented Jedi.

DARTH CARNAGE
A son? Why was Palpatine and my Master not made aware
of this?

ANAKIN
Chappie is my own business. I must get him back from
Obie Wan before he turns him into a fruit. He has named
him Luke already.

DARTH CARNAGE
Obie Wan... I have met him. I fought with him briefly.
He is quite strong, and strong and powerful with The
Force.

ANAKIN
His only power is to hold me back!

DARTH CARNAGE
Yes, well he seemed powerful.

EXT – PALPATINE’S APARTMENT

The Prototype TYE Fighter touches down on the roof, and ANAKIN and DARTH CARNAGE
hop out. PALPATINE storms up to meet them, full of pompous bluster.

PALPATINE
You fools! You cannot be seen together on Coruscant!
You will blow this thing wide open!

ANAKIN
Where is Padme, master? I must see her.

PALPATINE
No! You must not! She must not know of our
plans.

ANAKIN
She has something of mine that I must get back
from her.

Palpatine looks quizzical, and then his face takes on a twisted smile.

PALPATINE
A... son? Oh Anakin, I’m so proud of you! Is he
a boy or a girl?

ANAKIN
He is a boy, my lord. He is small and bald and fat, like a
normal baby. He must be less than a day old. He was taken
from me by Obie Wan and Padme.

PALPATINE
I will give you Padme’s address. Please wear normal clothes
to avoid suspicion.

ANAKIN
Very well.

INT – APARTMENT COMPLEX – OUTSIDE PADME’S ROOM

DARTH CARNAGE and ANAKIN, wearing simple tan robes, stand outside nervously.

ANAKIN
You wait out here, Darth Carnage. You might scare her.

DARTH CARNAGE
I am a pretty scary looking guy!

ANAKIN
Okay, be cool.

Anakin knocks on Padme’s door. PADME opens it, holding young Leia.

ANAKIN
I am here for my child, Padme. Give him to
me now.

PADME
Anakin! How did you find me!

Padme tries to slam the door, but Anakin puts his ankle in the door.

ANAKIN
The child! Give him to me!

PADME
This child? This is not our child, I am holding
this child for a friend. See, she is a girl.

PADME opens the child’s drawers to reveal her genitalia.

ANAKIN
I see... but where is Chappie?

PADME
{annoyed}
Luke is far away from here, and far away from
you. I heard what you said about being called
Darth.

ANAKIN
It is true, although I sense a presence here,
it does not seem to be his. I will go now, but
you have not seen the last of me!

PADME
Well you know what, I hope I have.

Anakin removes his ankle from the door and storms out, limping. Darth Carnage follows.
