The Grass Land

Prologue

 

         “So, jena Mani …” he asked, with minordelightfulness on his face which was too slight and was covered by the alwaysdignity. “What do you see …”

         Mani, the young man, whose hands wereembracing the baby for some vision, was musing, eyes closed. He was too young tobear his status as a founder of the national religion and a third hand of theking. That brought him envies.

         “Jena Shapur, my grateful King … ” slowlyopening his eyes and turning around, Mani said, “If you allowed me to … ”

         “Just tell what you see. ” alerted bythe king.

         “I see dragon … ”

         Then comes a silence. King Shapur wasangry to blur, but just for a few ticks. Being through so much makes him alwayscalm in whatever the tough.
         “Mani, dragon is not welcomed,and we all know what it brings.”

         “My King, this is not the normal dragonsign. It is green, stands on the land, strangely has weak-like wings andunfired mouth. I doubt that … “

         “No matter what. It is a dragon, right?”interrupted suddenly, the King seems to lose patient in the explanation. “Anddragon can never be the heir of our race. He will be abandoned!”

         Tears almost dropped from the King’seyes. Only Mani saw it, which he has never seen before. Suddenly he felt howpainful the King was fallen, he had that telepathy, that’s why he gainedinfinite trust from the ruler.

         “That was my first son, though poison,I feel no matter how far he would be threw away, he will come to see me again,friendly or hostile. Should I follow my heart?” Shapur murmured, asking nobody.

         “Your heart always points to the right.”Mani said.

         “Take care of him, out of my sight.”Shapur stormed out, leaving Mani re-embracing the baby.

         “I saw you …” Finishing his remnant explanation. “bring shinygold that ever faded.”

A Word from the Writer
So happy to start writing what I have expected for long. I'll update it as long as I have time. I knew there will be countless mistakes in my novel, and I will "debug" them all the time. Any of your advice will be read carefully, and I'm humble to learn.
