Chapter 1

1500 B.C.
“Swahayne what do you think you are doing here? ” a loud voice bellowed behind her while she was sitting and staring at the fruit orchard. “Trying to count the number of trees pa “, she then excitedly went upto him,  held his hand and pulled him back to her original spot “here look “, she pointed towards the trees “there are six trees,  we learnt counting today and later the teacher said he will give us lessons on the stars “, she kept on learning. “So you will my darling,  now lets go home your Ma must be worried “. On their way back they heard a loud booming sound. “Pa I heard the Sumers will kill us “, she looked worried. Bhadrak couldn’t understand how his six year old daughter knew so much about the kids know more than they should,  he shook his head. He slowly bent down to her level looked up in her innocent eyes “they are not going to get us honey,  believe me when I say we are strong “.Her brown eyes turned bigger as she digested this new piece of information. He then rushed her home before she could eat his brains out with her curiosity.

After 17 years

Sitting on a raised metallic platform Chahel looked very much like the people around him and yes though most were his kins but very few could be like him.He looked like a God,  with his sun -tanned body,  tall and strong physique,  brown eyes.

There had been recent losses in crop production for which they had come to him. They had been trying to solve this problem of drought for many years,  since his father had been alive. None of their tactics seemed to work , they were trying to construct a new drainage connecting a few wells to the field for now,  for which they might have to uninhabit a few house holders and he didn’t want to be brutal. So what else could he do?
” Sir do you think we should summon her here? ” one of his advicers asked,  bringing him out of the reverie. ” Not a good idea Chait,  she is from the warrior class and she might even destroy our seals out of ire like the last time “, the head priest spoke,  he had his body wrapped in Saffron and white fabric.
Chahel knew their disdainful feeling towards her,  the board would never allow him to bring her back.But the question is would she come back? When as her husband he could do nothing to stop her.

So did you like this first chapter. If yes then I would like to ask you a simple question – How do you think will he get her back? The next chapter will be based on your comments. So Romance seekers do comment.
