In a rainy day and empty street walked Kouen, Kou Empire's first Imperial Prince. Kouen came in disguise without accompaniment or guards, even his brothers don't know his whereabouts. At first he couldn't believe his eyes, in this poor village people seem to be dying of hunger and illness. As he walked he saw some people sleeping in the dark corners or under the trees. The Destroyed houses seem abandoned and he can here the small voices of crying children and women. All he could think about was the mysterious letter that he received a couple of days ago. The latter stated
"Don't trust the people around They are deceiving you for the wealth and their own greed. Your people in the West country are dying and need your help".
At first he didn't understand the meaning of this letter, he was suspicious of how the letter had reached his desk in the library and how he didn't sense or feel of a stranger in the Castle, how the hell even that the stranger was able to pass all the guards and security. Second the Content of the message, what does it mean that the people are dying? The West Country had an assigned general who look after it. So he decided to check the situation himself.
Back to the present
The latter was right, he thought to himself as he walked further in the dirty place.
"Move out of my way" he heard a women voice nearby. Kouen started to walk faster to the direction of the sound source. He saw two men from the army blocking the girl way, and they seem drunk.
"Just spend a little time with us and we will pay you" one of the men said to her.
"I told you to move and leave me" the girl replayed calmly. At this moment the other guy has grabbed her arm pulling her to him. Seeing this Kouen moved to stop these men before they hurt the girl, but in a moment the girl has pushed the man and made him fell on his butt. The men seem to be angry as he pulled his sword.
"You bitch, don't know that we work under the royal king how dare you"
"You really are trouble, we won't be nice" the other man said as they started to corner the girl.
The girl sighed and said "I really didn't want to hurt you any one tonight".
The men smirked with a twisted laugh "who will hurt who, you say….." and he moved his sword to kill the girl. In a moment Kouen stood in front of the girl and blocked the attack.
"Leave" Kouen said in a low cold voice.
"Who do you think you are, this is none of your business". As the other guy moved toward Kouen the girl behind him moved to block him with her sword. Kouen watched as she attacked forward he can see how skilled and relaxed she seemed. She was way better than most of his men's and general. He can tell.
"Don't look away or you'll die" the man faced Kouen moving his sword to stab him. Kouen moved easily to dodge the man and kick him in the stomach.
"I won't repeat, leave" Kouen said to the man, than he directed his attention to the other guy and the women to see him already passed out on the ground.
"Will that was fast for royal guards" the girl said turning around to face Kouen.
