She sat crying by her mother’s side as she watched her breath fade away. She had been by her side all her life and now the invincible sacred lady was dying. How could she just die like that?

“Mother, please don’t leave me!” she cried holding her hand.

“I will always be there with you princess. Always remember that I love you and everything I did was to keep you safe,” she said.

“Please don’t talk like that. Save your breath.”

“I can see that your father is already waiting for me. Don’t let anyone take advantage of you, become much stronger no matter what you face in the future. Turn this mountain into something great and make everyone shake by the mention of your name. Don’t let them step on you ever. Remember that you are special child and you will always be in my heart,” her mother told her.

“I will fulfill your wishes mother but please just don’t leave me yet,” she begged.

“Once I’m gone, I need you to open my safe box and take out the letter that’s in there. Read it and burn it. I hoped a day like this will never come but since it’s already here, I’m afraid you should know the truth. I love you child and will always do,” her mother said and without giving her a chance to reply back she just fade away.

She couldn’t believe it; she shook her and yet she didn’t respond. Her mother was gone and she was left alone. How could she bear to leave her alone in this cruel world?

She cried out loud drawing the attention of the people who lived with her. They all came and bowed down and began to cry with her. She wiped her tears away and looked at the Left Guardian.

“Prepare for my mother’s burial. Make it so grand and the mourning period will be three months. Increase the security around the mountain and anyone who doesn’t mourn with honesty will be buried with my mother. Make sure she gets buried alongside her husband.

The tailor department should prepare a golden gown for her to be buried in. the gown should be done in a week and they should make it beautiful or else I will have their heads rolling down,” she gave an instruction and the Left Guardian crossed his arms as a show of respect.

“I will carry out your instructions,” he said.

She looked up and made a vow to her deceased mother.

“I will destroy anyone that goes against the Lotus Palace. Anyone that will challenge me and anyone who caused my mother to fall to her demise I will get rid of them all. I am going to make my palace so great and much famous just like my mother wanted.”

But first she has a letter to read and find out what was so crucial that her mother wouldn’t tell her but leave a letter for it. She found the safe box and cracked it. Inside there was a sealed letter with her mother’s seal. She broke the seal and took the letter out.

She began to read the letter and it didn’t make sense at all. What was her mother telling her? How could this happen? She fell to the ground and hold the letter in her hand.

“I will heed your advice mother,” she told herself and knew that everything had just changed.

Her life was never going to be like she had imagined when she was young. Her life just made a huge turn around and there was no turning back.
