Wake up!!The man was standing in front of her in a black cloak. He looked like a cobra but he wasn't. His demeanor was like that of a commander. His face wasn't clear and from her current situation, it wasn't sure whether he was a friend or foe. From yesterday's event, she was sure that she was betrayed by a cobra. But all these facts were not restraining her. The unknown man gave her unexplainable confidence and trust. She slowly put her hands through the iron bars trying to reach his face. Seeing her actions, he moved a step back and removed the cloak. In the bizarre light, she saw his face;"Jiva...Brother, why are you here...Jiva..."He remained silent until she stopped her words. He took a step front and raised his hand. Time stopped at that instant. She couldn't believe her eyes. The flame of the lantern in front of her stood still. She was taken aback in shock. He moved towards her and passed through the rails as if he had no body but just a soul.Amanya lay on the ground sc
Blood smeared with his sword. The sight was too frightening leading to some old ministers fainting on the spot. Yuvan blocked Mekala but she saw her maid lying in the bed of fazan as it seemed."Naman.. escort the king back and guards take the ministers back." The entire scene was evacuated within minutes. The maid was as white as a ghost as her whole blood was drained out."Lord, her body has 100 fazans. " Charan said with a stern voice."They are too inhumane. But.. why do they have to attack this mere maid in such a cruel way. What is their message??" Ashok went near Yuvan to know his emotions."Inhumane!! Ashok this act can't be simplified by a small word." Abhik was still in his trauma."Lord is it Devi's...?""I am also thinking the same. her brothers can't be belittled. But...""What??" Ashok was getting curious at their confusion."If it is her brother's work, then they should know that there are only two days remaining now. even if they wanted to revenge, they would have wait
The sky was crowded with dense clouds that even the sunrise was obscured. Eagles flew around the prison and crows flew above the palace in large. The capital is no longer in peace. The streets were filled with people worried about their queen; though she was not crowned officially. They waited for their prince's action and his majesty's verdict declaring her innocent.The court was unrest. Ministers were debating among them about the probability of her crime. Even the arrival of the king couldn't completely stop this uncertainty. Their whispering filled the walls of the Amaian court. A massive bolt of lightning flashed in the sky rumbling the court. It became silent all of a sudden. The atmosphere started to be eerie. The morbid silence filled in the pillars of the court. The ministers were anxious at the bad omens. The loud footstep of a battalion echoed on the ground. Yuvan entered the court perspiringly with his sub-generals."Father.." He bowed with troubled eyes."What happened??
The mask and black cloaks were enough for the hostages to understand the situation. They were tied and silenced but their folds were removed. Intense light gushed into their eyes leaving their vision blurred and retaining its power gradually."All the maids here are lackeys of Mekala placed near the commander. Cobras with lord are assembled in a room." Deva informed Ashok."Check among them and confirm for the mole. As for them, they had tried to poison Devi before. Starve them and put them in the dark prison.""Ashok, I have a gut feeling, we don't have a mole among us.""Your reasons?""If we had a mole who is capable of trapping the commander, then he should be able to lock us both. Also, the mole doesn't know that Devi is commander Amanya. This contradicts the above statement.""I hope so." Ashok stroked his chin."Lord, a guard walked in; we have confirmed no one in the room is a mole.""Ok." Ashok stood from his chair and walked towards the window. The night was colder than the
Abhik and Ashok were more furious with Yuvan's silence than with the schemes of Mekala. They confronted him in his mansion. He was standing at the pergola;"Yuvan, this was the same pergola where you saw her tears and strolled into the mansion of Mahesh. Don't stand here, even the plants won't forgive your silence.""Bruddah, you disappointed me. I don't ..""Lord.. all the maids in the white pearl who were near to the princess have vanished to thin air. I think someone is framing princess.""Yes Yuvan, imagine if she is a cobra her cloak won't be that easily found by the search group. Cobras are famous for their secrecy and their magnificence in spying. It's ..Its..""I know!!!" Yuvan smashed his hand into the stone walls of the pergola. His blood from his knuckles touched the leaves in red."I know... I believe her more than anyone in this world." His hands slipped through the stones and his bones couldn't handle his falling body. He kneeled and screamed with his head pressed to the
Ashok and Abhik stood near her while Yuvan was earnestly conversing with Charan. From his intense talk and Charan's deep breathing, it was certain that they were defending Mekala's every move. Yuvan walked back and sat near her. He was silent but held her hands in assurance as if he was promising 'I won't let anyone harm you.' The whole atrium was quiet regarding the recent events.The loud ringing of bells falls on the hall abruptly. All the guards suddenly pulled their swords and covered the king. It was the bell for extreme emergencies. A battalion of soldiers following the sub-general surrounded the hall. The whole scene looked like a coup d'état. The king stood from his throne in apprehension."Your majesty... she is a cobra..." He pointed at Amanya. The soldiers surrounded her with their swords and spears ready to slash her. Vexed at their accusations, Yuvan pulled his sword at them while she was silent as if she foresaw today. Their commander's tranquil face relieved Ashok thou
The night is long and grand. As the feast continued, envoys from almost every kingdom in the Mekong continent arrived with gifts for the newlywed couple. The hall was filled with praises for the princess. Dancers moved with the drums and lighted the hall. They tossed wine and celebrated the victory. They danced around the guest and one passed a note to Ashok in the midst."maid of Mekala sneaked into the commander's room and cobras removed the danger placed by her according to your order."Ashok disposed of the note; " Sorry Devi; even if you say you want to know the results, we can't just watch you getting hurt." As he was thinking about the next move, Mahesh entered the hall and greeted them. Upon his sight, Ashok fumed in anger, He facilitated "If your daughter doesn't know her limits let me assure you, she will have a short life."The dance was followed by the royal orchestra. A guard approached Yuvan. Ashok identified him; he is loyal to Yuvan. Something was fishy with his sudden
The victory arrival of the crown prince was reserved to be marked in the scrolls of history. The night was going to feast. All the palace was busy in preparing the banquet. Yuvan was summoned to the court by the king. He met his father in the king's chambers. The meeting was short and secret between them.Naman and Ashok rushed to meet Amanya. They met her in their secret base inside the palace."Commander, an alert message!""What happened today? General is here by himself to report a message.""Lord, just now the prince talked with the majesty and it was a short one. Our cobras assume that it was about you or else it won't be this crisp.""So you want me to be alert?""Lord, nothing can harm you. It's just about how you want to take things. War and peace, cobras are ace in both."She smiled at Naman's concern. After observing the whole conversation, Ashok decided to meddle;" Commander, Mekala was warned by the prince himself. From her nature, she is not someone who will stop with a
