‘Darth Maul:Shadow Hunter’ – Chapter 10

This was an extremely busy Saturday.  I’ll openly admit that I got up very late this morning.  It wasn’t until 11 a.m. that Heather and I officially got out of bed and started our day.  Our children were very nice and let us sleep in.  It’s so great to have kids that understand when mommy and daddy are tired.  I was able to get outside and mow the lawn today.  It was a beautiful day and a great day to get outside to mow the lawn.  I began to realize how big our property really is.  I can’t mow the whole lawn with a push mower in one afternoon.  I spent three hours mowing and barely started the second parcel on our property.  I also found a mess of other things that need to be cleaned up in our back yard.  Our neighbors managed to talk to us today while I was out there and they were excited to see the people on this property actually taking care of the yard.

It got late and Heather had to go to work, which was fine with me.  I went downstairs and kept working on my Helm’s Deep set.  I have a feeling that Helm’s Deep will be done sometime in the near future.  I should be done with the painting stage by June and putting the finishing touches on this summer.  I’m excited to be able to keep working on it now that the musical is over.

Okay, it’s time to talk about Chapter 10 of “Darth Maul:Shadow Hunter” by Michael Reaves…..

 

Chapter 10:  We follow Lihnn as she sees Monchar leaving the bar with his bodyguard.  Lihnn sights Maul who is also following Monchar.  Lihnn layed back and ran through options in her mind.  We then switch to Maul’s point of view.  Maul feels the presence of another being with the Force (probably Mawhi Lihnn).  Maul watched Hath Monchar make his way to a unique area of living quarters.  We then switch points of view back to Lihnn.  She watches as Maul approaches the domicile.  She watches as Maul uses a lightsaber to cut a hole in the durasteel door.  This concerned Lihnn because she didn’t expect to have to deal with Jedi.  This made her more cautious in her duty.  We then switch to Lorn and I-Five as they make their way to meeting Monchar.  I-Five tells Pavan they have one hour and twenty-six minutes before their “stolen” cash is caught and straightened out.  I-Five suggests skipping small-talk, with Monchar and getting right to business.  We then switch back to Maul’s point of view as he busts the door to Monchar’s new quarters. We then switch to Lihnn’s point of view as she scours the building with her blaster drawn.  We then switch back to Maul’s point of view.  Maul engages Monchar’s bodyguards and dispatches of them rather quickly and brutally.  Maul puts his lightsaber away, lowered his cowl and told Monchar they need to talk.  We then switch to Pavan and I-Five arriving at the residence.  Lorn noticed the hole in the front door, but I-Five tells him to ignore it.  We then switch back to Maul torturing Monchar for information.  Monchar lets Maul know that only Pavan knows about the impending invasion.  Monchar also reveals that Pavan is showing up here to pick up the holocron.  Maul kills Monchar by cutting off his head.  Maul notices a safe on the floor and cuts it open.  As he does so, he is discovered by the bounty hunter Mahwi Lihnn, who has both blasters drawn.  Maul is caught unguarded but reacts quickly as Lihnn fires her twin blasters at him.  She drops her blasters in the foray, so she decides to user her wrist-rockets.  Maul dodged the rockets by cutting a hole in the outer wall and jumping to the streets below.  We then switch to Lihnn’s point of view where she is amazed at Maul’s ability to move so quickly.  By the time she realizes that Maul was gone, it was too late and the rockets had already been launched.  We then switch views to Lorn Pavan as he is knocked down by the impact of the explosion of the rocket.  Pavan wakes up in a daze and draws his blaster as he heads to the room where he was supposed to meet Monchar.  Pavan realized that Monchar had been killed and knew he had to get off the planet both because of the explosion and because of the bank-heist I-Five set-up on the computers.  As Pavan went out of the room, he stumbled acrossed the holocron.  He picked it up and ran down the hall as fast as he could.
