[He has to remember🎻]
I slapped him on his head and people began to scream. More like, in great shock.
Are you too poor to afford a prostitute?
It had to be innocent me you got to tamper with” I blurted finally leaving him.
People around had hands on their head. I folded my arms and smirked.
He rubbed his head slightly and I took the chance to see how the fool is dressed.
A nice diamond black shirt.
A royal purple crest on his badge area.
Wait, what am I seeing?
A royal crest of the royal family of the Bavana kingdom!!!
Before I could give it a second thought…
Two men gripped me.
Let me go!
Let me go right now!!” I rapsed.
Anushka, you’ve insulted someone from the royal family. Am done for.
“Who’s the fool now? Am going to make sure you get punished to the point that you won’t even be able to lift your fingers” he threatened.
I nearly burst into tears but I toughned up and squeezed my face.
“Let’s go boys” he said to the men and they began dragging me away.
I tried to free myself.
“No, stop! Let me go!” I groaned.
🚺Oh, sorry miss.
🚺she’s so brave…
🚹What will Devi do to her now?
🚺She doesn’t even look like she’s from this kingdom.
🚺 she looks wealthy..
I heard people converse among themselves as they drag me to my doom.
If only they knew am the best friend to the future queen of their land…
I got to the garden and met him.
He looks more god-like in person..
But that look on his face…
Makes me feel unwanted.
I approached him anyways.
“Uh…Hi prince Javan” I said trusting my confidence.
He didn’t reply but just stared at me too freaky
“Did I do something wrong?” I asked more like a blurt.
I had no idea when I said that out loud.
“No, no. You didn’t” he simply said and began walking to a tree.
I followed him slowly.
He sat on the floor next to the tree while I came to a crouch before him.
“What’s that smell? More like strawberry” he asked with a crumpled look.
I smiled a bit.
“It’s a special ointment I apply on my hair” I replied.
“It’s nice” he muttered and drew close.
He sniffed my hair.
“Strawberry is my favorite”.
“Apples are my favorite kind of fruit” I said beaming.
“Apples don’t smell” he retorted.
“They do” I insisted feeling sure of myself.
“Something must be wrong with your nose then” he said with a smirk.
“My nose is perfectly fine. You should look at your own nose” I jibed.
“Your nose is like the shape of a telephone” he teased and I chuckled.
Wait, it’s an insult to me.
Am not supposed to laugh…
I tried to adjust but I slipped and was about to fall backwards.
Javan intervened immediately holding me my waist.
We stare into each others eyes for what felt like forever.
Our lips drew extra close.
On a first date, we’re already moving too fast!
He slowly claimed my lips and I lost control.
Oh lord shiva!
I lost my balance as well and I fell on the grass with Javan on top of me but he supported himself.
I thought he’d get up but he Continued kissing me cause I was doing nothing. I don’t know how to kiss!.
He likes me already!
He unlocked from the kiss.
He looked quite nervous.
He helped me up and I wiped dirt off my sari.
“Um…will you please follow me to the dinning?” I asked extremely nervous.
“Fine. Lead the way” he grouse.
I smiled and we started walking out of the garden.
I can’t believe we kissed.
I tried so hard not to touch my lips.
Why does she have to have an innocent face?
I liked her face already when I saw her walk in.
But that kiss was crazy….
I just met her!
Mom was right.
I would like her on seeing her.
She’s so divine.
We got to a huge Benz car and the door was opened.
It’s now or never.
I yanked my hands off with force and punched the two men hitting one of them at the forbidden zone.
They winced in pain.
Before turning to the Devi guy
“You’re so heartless.
You… You deserve to be called mr poop!” I yelled angrily before running off.
That Devi guy is so wicked.
I just gave him few bruises and he called his slim and stick-like guards to lock me up. Thank God am safe.
I rushed to the palace.
Ranu is going to kill me for sure.
Javan and I got to the dinning and everyone smiled, even dad.
“Wow, this is marvelous. Congrats to you two. We’ll go ahead with the wedding preparations” Javan’s father said.
I didn’t know how to feel.
There’s surely no going back now.
I glanced at Javan and he was staring at me.
I quickly looked away!
After a long time, the dinner was over.
Mom, dad and I headed for our ride home.
I entered my car and shuddered seeing Anushka already in the car.
I hit her arm.
“You scared me Anush” I pouted.
Her cheeks were dancing.
I looked closely.
She was eating a banana.
“So, how was it Ranu?” She asked not minding the fact she was talking with her mouth filled with banana.
“It was better than I expected” I shrugged.
“Whoa!! Someone is getting married to prince Javan. The only Indian prince that has won the heart of many girls all over the world!” She squeaked.
“You’re lucky Ranu” she beamed.
I only blushed.
“You won’t believe what happened to me earlier today! I got into trouble with some guy whom I didn’t know was royalty. I was almost killed Ranu…if not for goddess Jasmine! Hail goddess Jasmine” she narrated.
I rolled my eyes.
“Oh Anushka, what am I going to do with you?” I asked enthusiastically.
“Do you want some mangoes? Or berries?” She asked bringing out a plate.
“No thanks. I’ve eaten enough at the dinner” I retorted.
“What! You mean to tell me I missed all the delicacies served?” She asked with a crumpled look.
I rolled my eyes.
I walked into my room to meet Lakshmi on my bed.
“Hey L” I said heading for my desk.
“Hey J. How was it?” She asked from behind.
“You missed alot” I jibed.
“No I didn’t. I was there at the garden” she said and giggled.
“What?!!!” I exclaimed standing up to face her.
She wore a cunning smile.
“I never knew you could be so…Romantic” she sajd and winked at me.
“Whatever Lakshmi. Am not falling for your lies” I said unbuttoning my shirt.
She came close and took an apple from a bowl.
She threw it up and caught it.
“Believe me Javan. I don’t lie on Fridays. Hope you enjoyed the kiss” she said and ran off.
This girl is crazy.
She was there all along.
This is so embarrassing.
She saw me kiss those soft lips of Princess Ranu.
This is just crazy!
Anushka was spending the night in my room cause it was late for her to go home.
She lives with her step mom and dad so it’s best she spends the night than to go home late cause his dad won’t let her in.
I wore my nightie and we laid on our bed watching TV.
“Ouch. My tummy hurts, I need to use the toilet” Anushka pouted and ran to the bathroom.
Oh, I hope she flushes it😓
I stood by the table with my glass of liquor in my hand.
“Are the men in position?” I asked gazing at princess Ranu’s photo.
“Yes sir. We await your next command” the guard replied and I smirked dropping the liqour bottle and taking my gun instead.
“Let’s move” I said sternly.
Am coming for you.
Anushka stepped out of the toilet and took her seat beside me.
“You eat too much Anush. You take it easy” I said suddenly feeling quite sleepy.
I shut my eyes and I see Javan standing before me.
He leaned close and we kissed like nothing else mattered.
Am starting to have feelings for him.
“Ranu! Ranu!!!” Anushka yelled and am forced to wake up from dreamland.
Anushka was standing by the window.
“What’s going on?” I asked perplexed.
“The kingdom is under attack!” She yelled.
She ran to my closet and starts to bring out my clothes.
I sat stiff on the bed watching her run around forcing my jewelries into the small bag.
“Ranu, put on some clothes!!!!” She yelled and I rushed to her.
I was in my nightie.
I started hearing loud and disheartening gunshots.
I cried as we packed desperately.
Suddenly mom rushed.
She was soaked in blood and her eyes were filled with tears.
“They have killed him Ranu… They have killed your father!” She said dropping the bombshell that made me collapse.
“Ranu!!!” Anushka yelled trying to hold me.
Every other sound starts to echo in my ears.
I was loosing my breath and I think it’s no longer Ranu, am dead. No, it can’t be!!!
