Summary: As Padmé pivoted away from the desk, she glanced one last time at Anakin, who stood stolid and unmoving. He had not spoken once during the meeting. Her eyes met his and she could practically feel the frostiness that had settled into the air between them.
Author's Notes: Surprise! I think this is actually the first time I've gotten something written and posted before I said I would. Earlier in the week I'd been estimating Sunday (at the outside) for this, but something just clicked this morning and I powered right through the rest of it. And then Katie happened to be on early this afternoon and got it back to me with a nice quick beta! So kudos to her, as well. ^_^ Anyway, it does look like my Star Wars muse has returned, finally, so after I get my BSG character study squared away you should see more frequent TIS updates. This chapter was depressing as all hell to write, and sadly it's only going to get worse. Heh.
