Chapter 4 - Part 1
"Interesting. One would think our success would be linked, and yet..." Grand Admiral Thrawn's blue skin flashed a hint of red. He looked into his lover's eyes, but no trace of her once lustful gaze stared back at him. "How peculiar, to find myself at a loss. It is, as though you were..."
"A Phantom. Yes." Governor Pryce met his gaze. "I have learned from you, Grand Admiral. Our time together was good, and enjoyable, yes. But I'm afraid you aren't the one that... to use the vernacular, 'rocks my World'." She smoothed her clean cut Imperial uniform. "I've found someone else, better suited for me than you."
"And yet, we are perfect for one another. We came together, to this place, at the same time. With our powers put together, we have a true archetype that cannot be replaced!" Thrawn's demeanor was nearly cracking, how could the Governor not see the truth! "Between the two of us, we had a synergy that no other could make!"
"You mean your incessant commands? The ones that are always perfect, and no one could mess up?" Pyrce laughed. "Any skilled first officer can give what I crave, right when I need it. I only have to ask. And Admiral Sloane, she does things for me that you never could..."
"...In the end you're no better than a Dumpster Fire."
[Will Thrawn regain his lost love? Will Pryce and Sloane be the new power couple!? Stay tuned for Part 2 of Chapter 4 in the Forbidden Love of Lothal 2 - The Pryce of Love!]
(Yes, I know the World's winning list didn't use Pryce.)
