PROLOGUE

It was an embarrassing situation for Maria when she met Morabad for the first time.

She was relaxing in the cool waters of a stream alongside her home, on a hot stuffy day, when he and his men barged into their private property, frightening her mother as a result of their sudden appearance.

Maria was in an uncompromising situation, caught off guard in the waters. Believing in the privacy her property accorded, she had stripped bare before entering the cool waters.

Morabad, on the other hand, unyielding to the state she was in, gave her hardly any time to get out of the water, to put on her clothes so that he could proceed with his questioning. His impatience irked her, and Maria hated him for his imposing, lofty attitude.

Maria thought him most arrogant and merciless! However, she did as was told, just so the soldiers would leave her property as quickly as possible.

Besides, there was the case of the insurgents lurking, hiding in disguised in the village, and Maria wanted to be mindful of all the details.
