Winter's Dance

All Rights Reserved ©


"One to die, while the other lives," Ar'kela said. "Both cannot survive in this battle. No two knives can be in the same sheath." Two assassins were set to kill a girl. No questions asked. Just kill her and claim their prize. That was their mission. Except one of them was not supposed to visit Volney, the land of the dead and the other fall in love with a girl and totally forget about his mission to kill. For an heir who had dedicated her entire life for her kingdom, fate was not kind. Her sister should have returned home after her visit to her aunt's place. Her kingdom must have been safe, both terrestrial and by sea. But does anything ever goes planned? As a general, she must now decide. Kingdom or family? Suffice to say, slavery was the safest option for a bride. Hated by the king's daughter, she wonders what she had ever done in her life to deserve her hate. With her friend of fifteen years gone to join the rebellion, and without realising what it would cost her, she makes new friends. But would they keep her alive? Or would they sell her for their life? Friendships will be tested. Foes will become allies. Hunted will become the Hunter. And lover will become the betrayer.

Winter's Dance

I am the silver flecks, the frozen tears of the sky.

I am the frost, ebbing away the life.

Frozen fractals, 'tis I, freezing my way.

My song is the snow's language,

his murmurings to do my say.

White and silver are my colours,

the pale ones apart from gay.

The cold season is my lair,

to the one, where I am the heir.

the trees are dormant, the water frozen,

yet to all dismal happiness I bring.

Though flames may melt me,

The fireplace is just my thing.

The sweets, food and toast, Thank me,

I order you to open your cellars.

Ice is the dress I adorn,

the frost flowers are my own.

I have seen the Eternity,

known it, felt it, yet young I am.

To Her and to all

I am the Winter's Dance

Signing off till we meet again.
