After Mei and Vanna helped me with cleaning my face, I thanked them and laid on the bed with my hands folded on my belly.

I stared at the Ceiling remembering how Prince Arjun came to my rescue when I was in the room.

How his words always sooth my pain. I smiled as soon as I remembered the statement he made before hugging me.

"You are not staying away from me and I am not hating you." 

Though he is nice to everyone, he is nicest to me. And I think I like him. 

But who am I to say this in front of anyone, I am an ordinary slave, I have no right to like the Prince.

I shut my eyes to have a nap, cos my head was so in a mess when I heard Mei's voice as she walked into the room.

"Akira, Princess Hana needs you now." She said and I heaved getting out of bed immediately. 

I walked out of the room and headed to the Princess's chamber, when I saw her walking out with two other old maids which I am yet to know their names.

"How are you feeling now?" She asked smiling and I Bowed my head.

"I am better my Princess. Thank you." I replied happy to know she cared.

"That's good. I am taking a stroll to the market with my brother, and I wish you could come with us." She said and I was pushed to ask which of the brothers.

"Okay ma'am. I am available for anything you want Princess." I said with my head bowed and she nodded.

We began to walk down the hallway, when I saw Prince Arjun join us. We stared at each other from afar before he came closer. 

And when we came closer we looked away, acting like we never knew each other.

"Are we set? Looks like you are set." Princess Hana said and he smiled taking his position beside her.

"So what are we getting in the market that we can't just send a maid to get for us?" He asked and she looked at him.

"Aren't you tired of staying behind these walls all your life? You should have a break and that's why you are coming with me. You are my best, and I know you want to come." She said looking at me and I quickly bowed my head.

"And where do you think you are going?" We heard Prince Niran said and we all stopped.

"What is it this time Niran? Can't we take a stroll anymore?" Prince Arjun asked looking at him.

"Taking a stroll this time is a death sentence. Didn't you hear the other competiting country is trying to wage a war against us?" He asked and Princess Hana sighed.

"They waging war won't stop me from going out today. So be a nice brother for the very first time and let us go." She said and she began to walk away with Prince Arjun.

I followed thus, and the way he looked at me sent cold shivers down my spine. He is a damn scary dude.

We got to the gates, and we walked out. For one second, I inhaled the air outside the gates, outside the miserable walls.

I haven't been out of the walls since I was bundled and thrown inside it. 

I felt alive stepping out, though I know I can't go anywhere. At least I have the chance to see other places in Medan.

We kept walking and the Prince and Princess were having their chat. Which of course I shouldn't listen to.

I was in front of them, while they were in the middle of the other maids. I kept looking around examining the work King Maeko has done around Medan for the years he had ruled.

To be honest, he did a great job. The place looked beautiful. What I just didn't like was him treating less powerful towns like rags.

He has respect for only his own people. 

"Akira here." I heard Prince Arjun say and I looked back to see they already stopped at a jewelry shop while I kept walking and looking around.

I walked back to the shop and I saw her picking out some of it for herself.

"Akira which one do you like?" She asked looking at me and my eye widened. 

"Why ask me?" I thought looking at the samples of jewelries.

"I think the blue is beautiful. It's radiant and would fit your skin perfectly." I stated and she smiled.

"Arjun I told you. She would know what i like. I picked it before you chose Akira. You have taste and that is amazing." She said smiling widely and I flushed.

Not because she said that, but because they already talked about me before I was called back.

She picked the blue one and was about paying when we heard noises in the market. We looked at the direction of the sound and then we saw these men rushing down the market on horses.

They has Spears and guns which they used in killing the people that met on the way. I was terrified and my eyes heated up seeing what they were doing to innocent people.

"Run!" Prince Arjun said and we began to run. Before I knew it, almost all the guards that came with us where on the blood socked with their blood.

I looked forward and then prince Arjun grabbed me by my hand and pulled me quickly with him increasing the pace of speed of which I went.

I looked at him as we both ran to shelter. I looked around for Princess Hana but she wasn't in sight. 

We were all scattered, and it happened to be only Prince Arjun and I running towards the direction we went.

We got to this old House, and he knocked the door open pulling me inside it.

We stopped and we both began to pant. 

"Who are those?" I asked trying to catch my breath.

"Those are the competiting countries. They have come to wage war." He replied looking at me.

We stared at each other and I quickly looked away.

"What of Princess Hana?" I asked looking away. 

"She should be safe. She knows how to take care of herself." He said approaching and I began to move back with my head bowed.

"My Prince don't you think we should go back to the palace? King Maeko would be searching for us." I muttered as I kept moving back.

"We can't go out now. We need to make sure the fighting dies down." He said and then my back hit the pillar in the middle of the rusted house.

"Okay." I mumbled. Then he raised up his hand, to my chin making my face meet his.

"Prince Arjun we shouldn't...." I said with my heart beating very fast. My eyes were locked on his lips.

"Arjun. My name is Arjun." He said and to my uttermost surprise our lips touched. I tightened my eyes as I shut it.

He grabbed me by the waist drawing me closer and then suddenly, we heard a gunshot. 

He stopped kissing me and I saw blood stain his cloth. 

"Prince Arjun!" I yelled as I saw them target me too.


"Akira." I heard a very distinct voice.

"Akira." It came again, this time closer and I jumped to my feet.

"Princes Arjun!" I ran out of the room and as soon as I got out, I saw him approaching our room too. He was panting very hard.

Our eyes locked and we stared at each other. 

"Goodness God! It was just a dream!"
