STORY SO FAR..
Swahayne had been summoned to meet Chahel. When she reached the villa Adrij her brother -in-law, met her first and then she met her husband after a long time, but before they could have a descent conversation she left for a meeting with the board.
On the other side Dishra planned to burn the villa and finally the villa got burnt into ashes , not a single person could survive . In this chapter we will see how Chahel coped with his wife’s death.
A year had passed since the fire burnt down their Villa. A new one was being built in its place.
Today would be the completion of a year since he last saw anything of her. He had finished a meeting with the civilians and was heading towards his chamber to task some rest. For a flicker of second he felt someone watching him, but when he turned around he stared at the blank wall. I must be distracted, he moved towards Dishra ‘s quarters, he had some important discussion with her regarding her recent expenditures in weapons. What need does she have for weapons? he thought. He had been busy with the construction work, had no time to see which relatives of her she had been visiting on the city outskirts.
He didn’t find her there and went instead to his chamber. The moon light entering his chambers almost lit the room.While walking towards his bed , he found someone lying there . “Being playful, aren’t we? A smile tucked on his lips. “I was testing your bravery “, a hint of laughter in her voice.
“So I could see “, he went closer to where she was sitting ” I’ve missed you a lot “.
“Good to hear, because Dishra was the person who burnt your villa “, she stopped him before he said anything ” I have enough proof against her “. She snuggled against him “You’re not going to believe me this time “. ” I believed you even that day when you deserted our chamber and left me alone, ” he sighed. “But you couldn’t voice your thoughts strongly nor did you stop me,” she whispered.
Annoyed by the direction their conversation was moving, she changed the topic “I assure you Parama there will be an attack on us tonight ” , her playful voice turned stern. “I am sure you are ready for that Swahayne “, he tucked a stray hair behind her ears.
It was a full moon night and they could clearly see each other. He could see the love she felt for him in her eyes. She blushed when he took her hands in his, hers were much tinier compared to his huge ones. He looked almost 7-8 inches taller than her. “Let us get ready to slain their heads, ” he bellowed. “You sure you can take up a sword?”
“Woman only a cow could forget your father’s hefty training and you married no cow, ” he whispered the last few words, while trying to hug her.
Just as she had informed an attack had been launched, but how they entered the city gates Swahayne was still confused. “Their army isn’t a large one and our gates can endure much stronger attack, ” she rode her horse between Adrij and Chahel. As next Parama shree she had to be protected.
Until a few hours they could see a harmless army but just as they lost focus, a cavalry attacked them from the eastern gates as well. Definitely work of an insider, she rode hard while her sword claimed bodies of their enemy. She was now closer to Chahel to see that a lady with her mask on, had fully charged at him.
