Coruscant, business district, 9:45 p.m. Artemis Odain's store
"The shop looks different in the dark," Athorus said quietly. At least I made it across the street okay... no one even noticed me... he thought in awe. I willed them to look the other way and they did... I'm capable of much more than I ever thought possible... I know I am. I can feel it. Just like I know they're after me. I'm not sure when... But they'll come looking for me. I need to alter my appearance. click! bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

"You DID say I needed a haircut, Father." But that won't be enough. The Jedi had no proof of my existence, so my face won't be on record, but I'm sure I was caught on the hallway cameras as I left. They'll know what I was wearing. Father's clothes should do it... a little large, but I'll grow into them.
"Blast!" Athorus whispered. "A Peace Trooper! I knew they were on my trail, but-"
static "Red 4, what's your status?"
"I just walked in Odain's store, commander. The lights are out but I thought I saw something."
"No sign of the boy yet, sir, but-"
"WHAT WAS THAT!?"
"This is starting to get fun."
"Come, Father, we're done here."
"The mark is in sight, sir." static "Good. Follow him. I want to see what he does next."
