Without much of an effort, Shamma stretched out her right hand and defied the law of gravity. Xavier could only but stare at the stagnant sword inches away from his neck. Rob just glared at the same incident face registered with shock.He was at some point quite sure someone was going to die, but the odds were now fully stacked against him. Shamma twisted her hand, and in the same manner the sword turned, its tip now fully facing a stunned Rob
"Please, please dont kill me it was not my idea plea..." but before he could say more his sword flew towards him piercing through his chest.He gasped for air as he sunk to the ground but it was too late. He died.
Xavier upon seeing what had just happened could not move either.The events of that very night were becoming too heavy for him to bear such that he ended up letting the darkness envelope him.
"Xavier!" Shamma screamed running towards him
"Xavier get up, Xavier!" she screamed but his eyes would not open.It was
Shamma woke up next to her mother the next morning. Shayne had rather refused to spend the night at the royal house and was accompanied back home.He was an adventurous teenager, old enough to be by himself."Goodmorning mommy.""Goodmorning my love how are you today?""I am fine mommy. Oh my i have to check up on Xavier!" she said jumping out of the bed and running towards the door"Be careful dont trip!""I wont!" she called out and in a moment she was gone, banging the door shut on her way out. Dora was left alone with her thoughts. She gave a silent prayer thanking her maker for life and for Shamma. She thanked Him for everything that had happened the previous night definitely gra
"Tamera, would you like to go for a walk? We can just collect marbles by the river and come back.""You should just call me Tamera often Sham.It sounds better.Is it far? We can take my carriage.""No no its a little distance from here dont worry." And they were quick to get going"Brother Shayne we are going to the river!""Be careful!" he gave an unheard reply as the girls were endorsed in their conversation"You know Sham.I never really get to play at home. Father does not want me to play with the other kids at home all.""But why Tamera?""He says they are servants children and
"Sham we should come to the river more often. I like it." said Tamera as they made their way back"Its okay Tamera. You can just come to my house and we will go. But lady Tamera, i have never seen your mother, where is she?" Tamera was silent for a moment before responding."Well Sham, we only live with my dad. Dad says my mother died when i was still a baby. I only live with dad and sister Tanisha.""Oh wow you have a sister? I have Shayne and mom. I dont have a dad at all mom says he went to heaven. I hardly remember him anyway.""Well atleast mom is there she takes care of you.""But Tamera i dont like it when mom works a lot. She comes home very tired everytime. When i grow up i
Marcus paced to and fro clearly still trying to process the news he had received. He looked at the opened letter on the floor then at the envelope, stamped with a royal seal clearly proving that it was indeed from the king"I hope this letter finds you in good health. His royal highness King Roland has ordered a ceremony in the crown prince's name with the intention to choose his betrothed. The ceremony will be in two days do bring young lady Tamera. His highness is deeply sorry for the unseen change of plans." it had readMarcus could feel his anger rising from the deepest pit of his stomach. Anything could happen anything could go wrong and the last thing he would want was Tamera to miss out on the throne. That would be his biggest nightmare"Father." a voice got to him. Sep
"Uncle, i dont understand. Tell me more." said Sham clearly eager to know everything. "Do you know what a protector is Sham?" "No uncle Zuri. Well i have been called that before i am not hearing the word for the first time. What is it?" "Back then many centuries have passed already, five kingdoms resided peacefully by the valley of Zaraj. Those five including our Luyota." "Then what happened uncle?" "They were happy Sham. They were from different kingdoms but they cared for one another. They would trade, they would intermarry and they would sometimes have combined ceremonies in the name of strengthening relationships. It was that way up until the war of the worlds broke out. The
Its dark. Probably some minutes past midnight. She is in a cave. Where else could she be? Nobody liked her.Her senses are slowly finding their way to her and so is consciousness."Even if you try anything, you can never kill me Rio!" that memory. It was exactly what led her into the situation she is in. She had underestimated the lad and before she knew it an arrow had pierced her stomach, causing unimaginable pain. Her vains popped out, a green colour dying them"What did you do to me!" she had stammered but Rio just stood there watching. She fell onto the ground blood oozing from the piercing. She coughed and a green liquid had gushed out of her mouth"You poisoned me?!""Goodbye Gativho, i pray you sleep for all eternity." he had s
"You look lovely." Tanisha said to her sister as soon as the servants were done dressing her. She was in all yellow, a colour that complimented her complexion making her even more beautiful"Really sister? I am so excited i cant wait to go to the palace. They will choose me wont they?" Tanisha was silent for a brief second before forcing out a smile"And why wont they choose you?" a manly voice said. It was Marcus entering the room, " My daughter looks like a queen.""Really father?""Yes. Now let us go shall we?" he said and Tamera was quick to lead the way.*****Catherine peeped into Xavier's room before fully emerging. He was al
A deafening silence followed the screeching of the broken glass. Everyone just but gawked at innocent Shamma who stood by the door entrance having just arrived. She looked at the piece of glass before her feet then at the numerous stares"Oh my! It broke! Grandma?" she widened her eyes at the sight of Wally. It was then that Tamera realised she had met Wally before. She had been wondering ever since she saw her"Last time it was the purse and today its the glass but dont worry i will bring it!" she picked up the piece of metal and ran over to Wally. Meanwhile the rest of the guests kept silent, clearly in questions mode because of the turnout of the event"Grandma, have you chosen Tamera?" she asked handing over the piece but Wally just stared at her. Tamera switched her gaze from Sham
