Series: Part 2 of Oxygen and Rust
Murder, mayhem, and mistaken identity! When a body turns up in Coruscant's underworld with a very familiar face, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker are dispatched to investigate the case. Newly returned from the front lines of the Clone Wars, the two Jedi find themselves in a deadly game of cat and mouse: but are they the hunters or the hunted?

I rewrote this chapter four or five times, but two things remained consistent throughout each draft: Anakin being chained up (to a chair, a bed, and finally a wall) and a character named Felisha (at one point an Arkanian, but finalized as a Zeltron). POV shifted between Ina-Rati and Anakin before settling on Anakin; at one point Anakin was having flashes of the future instead of the past.
As with previous chapters, hairstyles for this chapter can be found on my Oxygen & Rust: Hair pinterest board (Felisha and Yeine in this case, since Ina-Rati's hairstyle carries over from the previous chapter).
