Chapter 4:

Beautiful stranger

The broken bond

Rehan was strolling through the forest to escape the hectic workload at the castle. The forest made him feel calm and at peace. He saw the signs of spring arriving in the forest as there were Flower buds beginning to bloom. The ground was wet and damp with the rainfall of the early spring. The smell of the murky mud and the sweet scent of the blooming flowers made his stroll much more relaxing.Bookmark here

From far he saw two figures laying on the grass. Rehan went closer to investigate thinking who in their right mind would sleep in the middle of a forest with dangers lurking around every corner making them vulnerable to their surrounding. He went closer to the figures and he saw two young ladies sleeping soundly. One of them looked like a spirit while another looked human. Rehan accidentally snapped a twig which caused them to wake up.Bookmark here

Both of them got into battle mode to attack whoever disturbed their slumber. Rehan got into battle position if they attack him. The girl whose spirit turned into a spear asked him " Who are you and how did you enter the forest,". The girl had captivating brown eyes which lured Rehan. It made her more angelic and she had caught Rehan's interest. Bookmark here

" I am just a traveler who is enjoying the forest which is welcoming its first spring," Rehan lied.  He didn't want a stranger who was pointing a weapon at him to know he was the prince although she looked beautiful. Bookmark here
