They brought me with a Lambda class shuttle to Bast Castle on the planet Vjun.
It was a dark place nearly as dark as the soul of its owner, if he even had a soul. Strangely enough, when there was no way to escape, I was completely calm.
I had resigned myself to the inevitable.
What I didn't understand was why Lord Darth Vader should personally deal with a Rebel officer, who in his eyes was certainly insignificant.
They locked me in a cell that looked similar to that on the Executor. But this time they chained me in the alcove.
Again I heard heavy footfalls but this time they were slightly different to those of the stormtroopers. I was pretty sure that I would face my future tormentor soon.
I was right about this, it was Vader who entered my cell.
He came without an interrogation droid, what I saw with relief, even though he was well known to have other methods of truth-finding available.
For a long time he just stood there and looked at me. Except of his heavy mechanical breathing wasn't any noise to be heard. I tried to show no fear but it seemed that I wasn't successful.
Finally the Dark Lord spoke to me. "You've no cause to fear me, Nomi Darklighter, at least not yet. Perhaps in six standard months it will be the time you should fear me.
It's amazing that such a small person is carrying three potential Dark Jedi."
I asked him: "Three Dark Jedi, six standard months? What are you talking about?"
"I'm talking about the three unborn you're carrying since three standard months in your belly. You're expecting Force sensitive triplets.
Amazing since you've nothing in common with a Jedi except your given name. I can already feel their strong presence in the Force. Therefore I was able to find you. Who's the father?"
Now I knew why I threw up nearly every morning. Those children, Dash's children, Dash's legacy were the cause.
Vader spoke again: "Dash Rendar is the father. Then I'm not surprised any longer. There were once in a while Force sensitive born in the Rendar family.
But those three are very strong in the Force. When they are born it will be a pleasure to me to show them the dark side of the Force. I will you keep alive until the triplets are weaned.
Then you'll be executed."
After this he left me alone.
Under other circumstances I would have been happy to carry Dash's children. But now I wished that I had them lost when I was severe wounded on Corellia.
I wondered why 2-1B hadn't mentioned that I'm pregnant.
But now I knew how long I would be alive and that until then nothing would happen to me.
Vader didn't want to endanger his precious Dark Jedi.
I tried to sleep and I hoped to wake up the next morning and that all this was only a nightmare.
