Chapter One: The Treaty
“You want me to marry the son of a lousy smuggler and one of our greatest enemies?”
Her voice grew louder, higher pitched in its intensity, with each syllable.
“He is a powerful Force user, the grandson of Vader, my lady, his profession and that of his father be damned. And the Resistance scum will not sign the treaty until we offer something of value.”
“If we must offer something of value,” the Master of the Knights of Ren spat, “then why are you not proposing marriage for yourself?”
She could sense the redheaded General’s irritation, and the effort he was expending to not let it show on his face.
“Because the Supreme Leader wants more of your kind. Ones with the propensity to come to our side,” he curtly replied. Lady Rey knew that General Hux did not think much of the Force, but he obeyed the Supreme Leader without question. The First Order was his life.
The Knights of Ren were hers.
