The Darth Vader Chronicles – “Darth in Retirement”

Darth is sitting on his cushioned banana chair, sipping on a Lemon Lime and Bitters and Pina Colada through a straw into his infamous mask, and humming The Empire Song, whilst him and his 100-room mansion overlooks the Empire in...retirement.

Darth is sitting on his cushioned banana chair, sipping on a Lemon Lime and Bitters and Pina Colada through a straw into his infamous mask, and humming The Empire Song, whilst him and his 100-room mansion overlooks pristine views of the Empire, in a galaxy far, far away. Darth is now retired; yes retirement. In fact it is an early retirement, as Darth is not 65 years old yet, but hey, he's Darth Vader, who had the 'power' to retire at any time he wanted.

Darth had to be dragged away from the top job. It was his top job, you see. He was the head-honcho, apart from that lunatic Darth Sidious, has has now thankfully vamoosed (gone). Darth could still match it with the best in his old age, constantly taking on anyone in his camp, especially the storm troopers (the poor things) and sent out a challenge to anyone in the Empire to a mental or physical duel.

Some scientist in the Darth camp came up with a Fountain-of-Youth machine that keeps everyone in the camp looking, feeling and being young (Darth is playing 'Forever Young' on his stereo right now). Darth, being the head-honcho, had first rights to this flipping machine, and of course he became addicted. Darth ended up over working the machine and one day, yes one day, it broke down, and then there was no 'Young Machine', and yes I've called it the Young Machine.

Darth couldn't believe it. He was lost. He did not know what to do without his Young Machine. Darth gradually became older and older, older and older, not realising that everyone in the Darth camp had been using the Young Machine behind his back, while Darth grew old. The camp was waiting for their day they could get back at the Darth Vader. You could tell when he took off his black mask. If you think he looked bad before, you should have seen him of lately - 'Aarrrrrrrrrrgh'.

Darth, in his retirement, sent for a Princess Amidala look-a-like to spend his retirement days with. Although she wasn't the real thing, she was close enough. This Princess Amidala look-a-like really picked up Anakin, Darth, and made him feel like a young Jedi again. And yes, he could get it up quite well, thank you very much - 'Go Darth'.

Darth had two children in his old age, a boy and a girl; sounds too familiar you might say. Luke came first, and then a year later, came Leia. Well, Darth called the boy, Luke Junior and the girl, Leia Junior. Talk about carrying on a legacy. And Darth taught them all his tricks-of-the-trade.

Luke Junior and Leia Junior were 12 years old when Darth was on his death bed. Darth was asked to give his departing words, which were noted down for the whole Empire to pay attention to, including how he missed the 'Young Machine'. Then a silly servant of Darth spilled the beans and stated how everyone in the Empire-cal camp were using the Young Machine and that it had been fixed before he went into retirement. On hearing this, and Darth on his death bed, Darth flipped out, copped a heart attack in the process and kicked the bucket (he died). He did love that Young Machine, oh, and the Princess Amidala look-a-like, oh and Luke Junior and Leia Junior, oh, and the Empire.
