going. If you think you can cope with Misfortune and have so much liking to him,
you can stay.’
Okay I’m coming’
‘I’m sorry, sister’
Tus stammered in her earThe three of them hastened towards the mouth of the cave and disappeared into the dark.Little did they know that Misfortune had been with them, awake with plucky ears, all the time.They strode north bound towards the Uzbek land.Meanwhile, when Hisana
and Rameesha started sobbing for she didn’t know what to do and
where to go without her parents, she could never have imagined that her parents would leaveher in the un forgiving strange wilderness, alone, and without anyone to help them. But Hisanawas not of such a kind .The war-like atmosphere of maliki clan had trained her to take hold of the grave situation like this, with great expertise.She consoled the poor girl, saying that she would help her, she would be her saviour andprotector. At the sight of Hisana
’s determined deep blue eyes,
the girl had a new and strongerhope of survival and calmed down
’two girls cannot survive on their own in this world ‘ Hisana
explained to Rameesha,’ you
know what .I
’ll disguise myself as a man and you, be
my wife’. And very soon, Hisana
was ahandsome and a strong young man standing before Rameesha. They took off their royal clothesand put on that of a common folk. They made a journey through the forest until they stumbledupon a magnificent city, Agros. Hisana would now be known as Jamil and Rameesha as Rukiya.They sold their royal cloths so as to rent a house for living in.Jamil went out in search of a job, with sensible salary for running the house, while Rukiyastayed home. The first three days cumbersome and fruitless searching, left Jamil fatigued, asMisfortune was still with them. The forth day Jamil heard guards talking.
‘’phew, that vicious demon
started attacking our beloved
city again’’, said one to the other.
‘Whatever shall we do?’
‘Oh, shut up! That’s
not our matter, Even the sound of that petrifying demon
gives me a creep’
replied the other.
’ We only have
to guard this place. Anyway, the King has given
an order that “
one who ever kills
this despicable demon shall be rewarded’’, so it was only a matter of time that one of them
came back, victoriously.
‘But it has been months no
w. Whoever sets out to kill
that demon never comes back. It’s like
that the demon is immortal. Now no one even dares of attacking or even facing that demon
Into this Jamil dropped.
