After that encounter with Vader. Leia ran outside to wait for her father. " Im sorry for your loss-what does he care!" she fumed to herself.
Over the next 2 years things got even more ugly between Leia and Lord Vader as she continued her mission for peace and justice; while Vader continued to ensue fear into the hearts of every creature in the galaxy.
Leia did manage to finally get the written details of the Death Star in hope for a weakness. Her ship the Tantive IV was on route to her home planet from receiving the stolen information.
" R2-D2 come here, you have to see these plans safely to Alderaan, dont worry about me." said the Princess.
The door exploded open and through the smoke came the towering figure that is Lord Vader. " Your Highness we meet again. Where are the stolen plans you intercepted?" demanded Vader
" I have no such plans and I dont know what your talking about." she lied
" Well then...Princess I shall keep you in the detention block until you decide you do know and do want to tell me." Vader retorted then stormed off.
Leia was put in a detention cell Block. A few hours went by and the door opened. Vader walked in with an interrogation droid behind him. " Leave us" he demanded of the Storm Troopers. Leia was frightened. Being alone with Vader was not something she wanted.
" Such a young beauty you are, your highness" Vader said moving toward her slowly. She stood up not knowing what to expect. " you've told me this, WHAT DO YOU WANT!" Leia demanded, though she was now backed into a corner.
" I want you. Yes...my lovely. I will give you an option. Marry me, live, and tell us where the hidden rebel base is...or die. Ever since I saw you, you have reminded me of my late wife." revealed Vader, now standing right in front of Leia his hand on her chin then moving to caress her cheek.
" Your crazy and even more evil if you think I will marry you Vader. I will die first. And with honor protecting my home planet." she answered coldly.
" FINE. STORMTROOPERS! Giver her the interogation serum. If she will not cooperate on her own."
The serum and droid didnt work either. She laid to rest in the cell block. Then what seemed like forever later, the door opened and in walked a short Stormtrooper.
" Arent you a little short for a Stormtrooper?" she joked.
" OH, right the mask-Sorry. Im Luke Skywalker. I have your little droid R2." the young man said in a hurried voice.
They rushed out of the cell. There was another man with Luke. He was the most handsome man Leia had ever seen.
" Any Luck Han?" asked Luke. " No kid, I think we woke the whole space station." replied Han
" Boy some Rescue. You come and get me and have no way out?" said Leia irritated.
" How about back in your cell Princess? We are doing the best we can." retorted Han.
Yeah she could see that.They made it out through the garbage shoot. The battle wasnt over. They took the plans in R2-D2 to the rebel base on Yavin. They eventually won the battle of Yavin and Leia found two new friends, Luke and Han.
Though her feelings for Han were growing a little stronger every minute. His swagger and tough talk were annoying yet there was something about him that she couldn't resist.
Over the next couple years they grew closer. On a flight back to his home planet of Corellia for a short stop, she caught him with barely anything on.
" Enjoying the sight your Worship?" he asked with a cocky grin on his face.
She moved closer to him " Dont flatter yourself flyboy." And they made out in the Falcon...Okay maybe they did a little more than that.
