We were done eating, and I was patiently waiting for Hana to bring up the matter about Akira right in front of Father, so we could trash it out once and for all.

"You should say this in front of Father." I said to her and she shook her head.

"We shouldn't involve Father. If he is involved, all the palace would have eyes on my maids and I don't want that for them." She said and I sighed.

"How then would Maya take you seriously?" I asked and she smiled.

"Trust me Arjun. You know when I mean to do something I do it. This nonsense has to stop. When I saw Akira, I was so angry and I am still angry." She said looking at Maya as she stood up with her sister Katika.

They walked out of the dinning room, and we stood up too following them from behind.

They began to walk to the room where Maya kept Akira before, and Hana made sure they got there before she said anything.

"I bet you are looking for my maid Akira inside there." Hana said and they both looked back.

"Where is she? She is under my wrath." Maya said and I looked at her in disgust.

"Your wrath? And who are you to be wrath with my own maids?" Hana asked angrily and Katika looked at me.

"She crossed my path." Maya stated again.

"How please?" Hana asked standing akimbo. We stared at them waiting for their response but we got nothing.

I knew she had done nothing wrong, they are just jealous of her.

"Looks like we don't have anything to discuss about her offence then. So, I see no reason why you should lay your filthy hands on my maid!"

"Even if she did anything wrong, you have no right to punish her. You come to me first, tell me about it, then I decide what to be done with her! You have no right! I repeat no right! To lay your finger on her again."

"Not only Akira, but any of my maids. Father did you enough good by providing your own maids, so stay clear from mine." Hana ordered and I felt so Happy. I loved the way she handled the issue.

"Are you yelling at me because of an ordinary slave?" Maya asked angrily.

"Yes! And I will do it all over and over again! If you have no respect for humans, well sorry for you. You can take that mentality else where. But not anywhere close to me or my people."

"If you aren't satisfied with everything I have stated here today. Then you can pack your bags and leave. I didn't want you here before." She said angrily.

"So you stand there and let your sister talk to mine like that?" Katika asked me.

"She has every right to, since you both don't want to know your place in this Palace. You do as she told you, or we take this to Father. Thank God he made the rules himself. You will be no doubt guilty."

"One more finger on her hair, you won't stay another hour in this Palace." I threatened angrily.

"Silence! What is going on here!" I heard Mother cut in and we all kept shut exchanging unpleasant looks.

"Can someone tell me what is going on?? Or I sweep you all to the King!" She yelled and Hana looked at her.

"Mom I would explain everything." Hana said and she looked at Katika and Maya.

"Both of you to my Chamber now." She said to Hana and I. We nodded looking at them one more time before walking away.

"That was so brave of you Hana." I said and she breathed out releasing the frown on her pretty face.

"I was so pissed and I had to pour it out. They are just so full of themselves. I hate them." She said as we got to Mother's chamber.

We walked in and sat on the chair waiting for mother to come in.

The door opened and mother walked in looking furious.

"Hana what was that about?" She asked folding her arms and looking at both of us.

"Mother Maya laid her hands on my maid Akira. She beat her up and her face got swollen. I had to give her a dose of her own medicine." She said and Mother sighed.

"You didn't have to go that far, you said a lot of things you shouldn't have said. And your father mustn't hear it. You know how bad he gives his judgement." She said and Hana nodded.

"I know and I am sorry. I got so pissed after seeing the poor girls face." She said and I remembered her face again.

"And you Arjun. How do you come into this matter?" She asked and I looked at her.

"Mom all these happened when I was around. When Katika asked her to wash clean clothes with her bare hands, when Maya beat her up and locked her up in the room. I couldn't just sit and do nothing." I muttered.

"You should have left it to me, or Hana her master. You taking part in this will only complicate issues when Father hears about this." She said sadly.

"How would it complicate issues? Caring for her is wrong?" I asked.

"Your father heard the statement Niran said at the table earlier. If he hears this too, he would think there is actually something going on between you two."

"Or is there something going on between you two?" She asked with her eyes widened.

"Of course not! Why would you think like that?" I asked in shock.

"I needed to be sure. Because if you do anything stupid, that poor girl you both are fighting for will pay for it." She said.

"I Know mother. And it has not been said in history. I am just doing what is right. I care for everyone." I stated.

"Good. I will take care of Maya and Katika. This mustn't get to your father." She said and we nodded.

"Thank you mother." We chorused and we stood up walking out of Mother's chamber.

Hana breathed out as we walked down the hallway.

"Don't worry Arjun. They won't lay a finger on her again." She said looking at me.

"You should give that reassurance to Akira and yourself." I said and she smiled.

"If you lie to everyone in this Palace, you can't lie to me. Because we are closer than for me not to know how you feel about Akira." She whispered and I looked at around to see if anyone was coming.

"Hana what nonsense are you saying? Why would I have feelings for a maid?" I asked in denial.

"Can't you?" She asked and I shook my head.

"Of course not! It's Absurd. Pity is different from feelings. I just pity them for what my father did to them nothing more." I lied confidently.

"Wow. I never thought it that way. Since the first day you saw her, I saw how obsessed you were with her. Her name, her presence, I saw something different in your actions and eyes."

"But if you insist. It's okay. It's better for both of you." She said kissing my cheeks before walking into her door.

I stood in front of her door for some seconds without moving. I then left her door and headed to mine.

I walked into my chamber, and my men helped me remove my apparel.

I was left in my inner robe, and I walked to the table, drew out my drawer and picked up my dairy.

I opened it to the next blank page and began to write.

Dear Dairy,

       It's been long I wrote told you about me. That's because there was actually something special going on in my life at that time.

But now, I think I have something to share. After the annoying fight and method for father to be the most powerful ruler in Indonesia, I met this girl.

She is very beautiful and what saddens my heart is that she is part of my father's captive. My Sister's maid to be more precise.

Since the first day I saw her, I was lost in her beauty and innocence. She looked so innocent that it really got my attention.

I wish I could flow with the way I feel, getting to know her more. Telling her it's okay to be scared, but I can't. 

Not after the annoying rule father placed down about Royals and maids. 

Today Hana and I stood up for Akira like never before, and it felt great. Though mother and Hana are suspecting if I have feelings for her.

I denied it immediately though it was so painful doing so. I know my saying yes to their questions will get Akira killes and that is the very last thing I want for her.

So I have made my decision, I have to get rid of these feelings. Pretend to hate her if possible, and never give her any more attention.

This is the only way I won't get her killed. I hope I can do these things. All this Kinda sucks.

I have to go now Diary, promise to tell you more later. Bye.


In as much as I really want Akira safe 
It hurts to see Arjun make this kind of decision 

Or guys is there anything self he can do?? Other than killing the feelings??
