He stared at it for long long time before falling asleep.
He had a dream.
A strange and beautiful dream!
She was sitting on a rock, a young girl, wearing an ethnic dress of turmeric colour. Her body was covered with flower ornaments but the jewels she has hidden with them sparkled from small clearings, indicating that she was a very rich girl, well, by the attire he could guess she was a princess from middle ages or earlier.
She was the mistress of those eyes, that is, both of those eyes.
He was not the only one who was touched by their purity. She saw them gathered all around her wild beasts and birds, some grazing on the river grass some pecking the food she has scattered for them.
He wanted to have a closer look but the shrill howl of the alarm robbed him off that delight.
He passed the day aching for another glimpse of that amazing woman.
His wish was granted.
This time she was sitting in the window of a palace, so she was a princess or aristocrat indeed, there were no flower ornaments her body was covered with precious stones and gold jewelry. She was wearing a flame coloured dress that made her look like a goddess, not human.
A veena was lying on her lap, her wavy hair reached the floor, it seemed she was drying her hair after bath and playing the veena.
A sweet smile hovering on her face told her that she was in love.
A soft rustle made both turn toward the door, a sweet looking girl has entered the room, she sat down beside the princess and smiled.
