Chapter 1

Imperial solider/engineer named designated Tx 137 walked to the crew quarters of the imperial space station, known as the "Death Star".

Ever since he and the rest of his squadron had been stationed there, they had been treated with the kind of respect that only the 501st had been able to achieve until now. And the best part was the Death Star had everything: the bunks were comfortable, the place was always set to a decent temperature, and the food tasted so much better than field rations.

All they had to do in the place was a daily patrol and keep the prisoners in check. Neither were hard jobs at all. There were no prisoners, and divided among the entire squadron, the place took an hour to patrol.

Yep, he thought, opening the door to the room he occupied, Easiest assignment ever.

As Tx opened the door to the room he shared with some of his fellow squad members, he was greeted with the usual after supper conversation.

"I'm serious," said Ze 423, who was taking apart a sniper rifle to clean it. "The 501st just stormed the base a week ago. Took about ten prisoners."

"And Vader only got around to questioning nine of them." Jy 377 asked, in speculation. "I can't bring myself to believe that for a second."

"They say that he hesitated, acted almost as if he knew her." Yc 792 supplied, coming to Ze's defence like always.

"That proves it then," Jy said. "There is no possible way that Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith, would hesitate to kill someone. This rumour is 100 percent false."

"What are you all arguing about?" Tx asked.

"These idiots think that we're getting a prisoner dropped here in a few days." Jy said.

"Why's that so unbelievable?" Tx asked, enjoying the way Jy was getting worked up over the rumour.

"Wh-What?! You honestly think that Lord Vader would hesitate to kill someone?" Jy asked, in shock.

"Why not?" Tx said, calmly. "He is a person after all. He may not enjoy killing as much as everyone thinks."

"Yeah." Ze said, happy someone was siding with him.

"I can't believe you guys are buying this." Jy said.

Tx just chuckled. "Well, if that's all you guys are gonna say on the subject, then I'm turning in for the night." he said.

The small group agreed that it was a good time to turn in and climbed into their bunks. As Tx slid off his helmet and placed it on the bed post, he wondered just how much truth was behind Ze's rumors.

Althea Kerr: This is a tale that is all too familiar to South African readers having lived through a war era on our borders and beyond. It is obviously autobiographical as the mind under duress is so detailed and real. It has fantastic suspense if a bit disjointed - perhaps that is the fear and loneliness com...
