Return of the Jedi Lorem Ipsum

Greetings, Exalted One. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Luke Skywalker, Jedi Knight and friend to Captain Solo. I know that you are powerful, mighty Jabba, and that your anger with Solo must be equally powerful. I seek an audience with Your Greatness to bargain for Solo’s life. With your wisdom, I’m sure that we can work out an arrangement which will be mutually beneficial and enable us to avoid any unpleasant confrontation. As a token of my goodwill, I present to you a gift: these two droids. What did he say? Both are hardworking and will serve you well.

Welcome, young Skywalker. I have been expecting you. You no longer need those. Guards, leave us. I’m looking forward to completing your training. In time you will call me Master. You’re gravely mistaken. You won’t convert me as you did my father. Oh, no, my young Jedi. You will find that it is you who are mistaken…about a great many things. His lightsaber. Ah, yes, a Jedi’s weapon. Much like your father’s. By now you must know your father can never be turned from the dark side. So will it be with you. You’re wrong. Soon I’ll be dead…and you with me.

You cannot hide forever, Luke. I will not fight you. Give yourself to the dark side. It is the only way you can save your friends. Yes, your thoughts betray you. Your feelings for them are strong. Especially for…
