About this creation
19 Years Before the Battle of Yavin Mere Moments Before Order 66
Commander Froze walks down the corridor to see the Jedi Master standing idle, thinking like always.
Commander Froze: "General, you looked concerned?" the clone states slightly puzzled.
The Jedi Master stops, realizing he had been lost in meditation.
Jedi Master Stark: "Froze, it has been far too long. I can't remember the last time we had a moment like this."
Stark: "Recently I have been thinking about retiring. Going out and finding my own place in the stars. Away from the Republic, even the Order. I don't believe I can fit in a peacetime Republic after what we have had to go through." Stark says solemnly.
Froze stares back, even for a clone like him who was breed to think freely, he never thought about it.
Froze: "Sir, If theres any place to be. I think it would be Naboo."
Froze's holocommunicator begins to beep.
~The time has come, execute Order 66.~
Froze knew what that meant. He did not know why, but he could not do it. Stark was his friend. His mentor. His General.
Froze: "We have to leave now, we have to get you out of here."
Froze says with haste. Perplexed Stark stares back at him.
Stark: "Whats wrong--"
Froze: "There is no time to explain. I can hear them coming."
Froze says with a twist of fear in his voice.
Officer: "By order of the Supreme Chancellor, I here by charge Jedi Master Stark with treason. He is to be executed immediately commander."
The officer states sternly as if he had ice in his veins.
Froze: "I never been the best at following orders so..."
Froze: "I'll think I will pass. "
Suddenly Froze opens fire on the detachment of clone troopers. Killing them instantly.
Officer: "I order you to—"
The officer stops as Stark's blade ignites and severs the officer's hand clean off. He falls down in pain.
Stark: "I have to warn the Jedi Temple. I can feel the wound that is growing in the force. This is happening all across the galaxy."
Stark says with genuine fear in his voice. Froze has never heard the General this afraid.
Froze: "We have to get to a shuttle."
Froze: "No you have to go to the temple, I will hold them off General. Go!"
Froze exclaims with all the courage in his heart. Stark stands there in disbelief.
Stark: "No you are coming with..."
Stark trails off as more clones emerge from the corridors.
Froze: "Go! I will hold them back for as long as I can."
Froze shouts. The clone valiantly holds the line, taking down clones one by one.
More clones continue to come. Then a clone commander clad in red armor marches out among the grunts.
Froze fought hard, but he was no match. Froze is shot in the chest. His wounds cause him to collapse.
Looking up, Froze notices that the clone who shot him was no other than his pod brother—Captain Blaze.
Froze: "(cough) (cough) How could you betray the General?"
Froze struggles to say. Blaze just stares down at his brother.
Captain Blaze: "Patch him up. I want him transferred and ready for interrogation. Put him on the next shuttle to the Slab."
An Admiral dressed in a uniform not seen in the Republic before enters the room.
Admiral: "Congratulations, Commander. Take the traitors place. The Empire will have need of you in the coming days. Your only priority is to find the Jedi Master. He must be returned alive."
Blaze: "Yes ma'am"
Stark can sense all that is taking place. All the deaths in the galaxy. He can sense the pain in his old friend. His holocommunicator began to relay an emergency signal from the Jedi Temple.
Stark knows what he must do.
Stark: "I must regroup with the other Jedi."
Now that Order 66 has begun the story is going to shift towards the Dark Times and the rise of the Empire. I hope you all are enjoying the story so far!
