The Tantric was sitting on a mat, that looked like made of tiger skin.
The king sat down after showing his respect to him and being allowed to sit.
“I have a proposition for you king, something that you will thank me for… I want to marry your daughter.” The brazen man said.
The face of the king first became crimson then blanched.
He remained silent for long time then softly said that he will ask her and wont marry her off unless she says so.
“You will regret if you don’t!” He left the room leaving the king absolutely furious. He was unable to show it in his presence, now he exploded. He called that lecherous old man all sorts of names and wished that hell opens up for him.
“Send Somketu.” He ordered the guard.
A handsome man in his mid thirties entered the room and bowed.
The king narrated the story and his jaws tightened. “kill that monster before he harms her further.”
The man nodded and left.
