Volts

The Emperor approaches with an easy stride

to address Luke, the victor of the saber duel.

Your hate has made you powerful.

Now… take your father’s place at my side.

 

Luke retracts his saber. I’ll never turn to

the dark side. Palpatine grimaces. So be

it, he croaks. His limp hands suddenly rigid, he

blasts Luke with a jagged stream of blue

 

volts. While Luke writhes about on the floor,

Vader looks back & forth between his two

options: master & son. Then he lifts the emperor

& throws him over the edge into

 
the Death Star’s power core. The void gleams

with a sudden blue haze, but Vader sizzles & steams.*

 

* That’s not supposed to sound quite as appetizing as it does.
