Harappa’s lost seal-the uneven match

I am sorry to have broken my promise again and not being able to post it yesterday. If anyone is interested in reading the Introduction of this series they’ll find it here

DISCLAIMER: The characters and incidents in thia story are fictious with no resemblance to real personalities.
Chapter 2
He did know it would be difficult to find her but to what level he was not sure, the search party has been assigned the task of summoning her yet she was not found. She belonged to the warrior class and after separating from him the last he heard about her was she went out of the fortified city near the Sumer borders and was assigned a higher post to lash the formers out.
He still remembers how unhappy his father had been when he put forwarded his wish to marry her,  nor was his mother too happy about this union. He could guess his father’s reasons, the man disliked women of lower ground and if his son was set to marry a woman of warrior class that would be the most embarrassing situation for him. Yet he agreed, being the elder some of a Parama Chandrayu Chahel had the right to choose his wife. But he couldn’t understand his mother’s aggressive behavior towards his wife. The former was the only lady from the family who adored the girl and now suddenly she turned against her. It was not until his was in his death bed,  that he came to know her reasons “She’s your step -mother “, his father barely whispered “father you should rest now “, he had said to which the old man lightly chuckled and said “I’ll rest from tonight, listen to me now;  your mother wanted Swahayne for her own son,  your  younger brother Adrij,  but when she saw that instead of Her son,  Swahayne hot married to you she couldn’t let both of you be together “. That night true to his words his father left this world for heavenly abode.

What none of them knew and perhaps will never come to know,  Swahayne herself was against this union

.

He was about to be the future leader when he turned twenty-five,  and she had to spend her life fighting battles. He had known her since she was a kid,  she was Adrij’s closest friend and has been visiting their mansion for a long time. Chahel was in love with her since then. He would allow her to try out various mischievous activities on him. Thinking of those memories brought an enigmatic smile on his face. She slowly grew up to be a beautiful lady and a fiery one at that.

He knew she would be just when she returned from her Pratyakshin. But when he proposed her she declined his proposal. Later he with the help of his brother convinced her to protect him, from a pretencious problem,  which was possible only through marriage.

The seals were a totally different story,  she knew their importance and would never break the family trichome seals  intentionally,  even more so steal the most precious Kritaksh seal, because she would already be gone by then.

“Parama we found her, ” one of his guards informed him.Silently relieved at the news he followed them.
