Anakin surrendered the moment Amidala threatened to kill his child.
Serenely, he peered at her from behind a Force-shielded cell, not moving a muscle even as she drew her saber for the killing stroke. She almost did it, but the memories of Naboo -- making love in the gardens, long hours joined in fragrant beds -- were still too clear, too real.
Their eyes met, making time stand still and Amidala could almost smell the flowers; feel his skin. Without a word to her husband, she put the saber away.
Somewhere, through the Force, she thought she heard Palpatine laughing.
Anakin's cell was as wide as his arms outstretched. The Force shield hummed incessantly and the clone guards stood at attention at the controls. No one spoke to him, no one dared look at him, except for his Force-forsaken wife, who visited once a day, to appraise him silently, her dark eyes filled with calculations.
So busy was Amidala with her planning, she never felt the slight intrusion he made into her mind, slipping into her greatest fears.
The revelation was small, but significant.
Twins, there are twins and it took all of Anakin's self-control not to howl triumphantly to the stars.
The little girl had her mother's eyes and Anakin had no trouble recognizing her, as she snuck past the guards with Force stealth.
She, on the other hand, had no such certainty, as she peered at him suspiciously. "Who are you?"
"Your mother didn't tell you, did she?" Anakin asked, wishing he could caress her smooth cheek.
Leia blinked, unsure. "She told me enough. She said you killed my father."
Anakin laughed, shook his head. "I am your father."
The terrible light of truth filled her eyes and he watched as she ran away, her braids flying out behind her.
yep, moar to come. :D Thanks for reading!
