Walking With A Suitor
This is a sample from Chapter 15 (Walking With A Suitor), Part 2 (The School) of Sona Siepakova’s novel Loved By The Sun.
In Part 1 (The Garden), the main character, Meritaton, a pharaoh’s daughter, spends most of her time in the vast garden behind her palace. She is going to build a shamanic circle, try to call in the rain, speak with the Earth, see a pyramid with her father… In Part 2 (The School), Meritaton goes to a spiritual, mystery school where students learn techniques of personal and spiritual growth to gracefully pass their final test of courage…
During the breakfast, Nanny made it clear to Meritaten that she had a special proposal for her.
What could it be? Meritaten wondered quietly, waiting for Nanny to reveal the secret.
She ate slowly, as there was complete silence in the room. She finished and put the dishes on the tray. Nanny still did not speak.
Today, I am not going to school. It is Saturday. What was it you wanted to suggest? Some programme for the day?
Exactly, my dear. Soon, a boy is going to pick you up here. Your mother wants you to go for an official walk with him.
Pardon? Meritaten didn’t understand.
What does it mean to go for an official walk? I hope I don’t have to squeeze into a formal dress?
Not at all. Put on what you want as long as you don’t intend to appear attractive.
Why should I appear attractive? Meritaten started to be nervous.
It’s your potential bridegroom. You are going to take a walk in the gardens or the close surroundings, and I, with the guards, will follow a little behind you. Or we might wait for you somewhere should you sit down to talk.
Are you kidding me?
My beloved, I fulfil your Mum’s wishes. Currently, there is a serious shortage of male heirs in your family. Therefore, your mother has started selecting suitors for you of rich and respected lineage.
Meritaten fell back into her chair as if someone had popped her balloon.
I don’t want to go for that walk. She whispered in despair.
