Clemea looked at her husband in a surprise. She has never seen Rahun so upset. In the middle of night he is walking in the balcony without even looking at her. She let him in his own world for some time. But she was curious to know.

” You are not planning to sleep tonight?” She asked

Rahun” No you sleep”

“What is it upsetting you so badly?”

” Nothing it is something that I have to find to prove I am right.”

Clemea ” If you explain may be it will help you.”

Rahun always knew that his wife had sharp eyes for details. But he was reluctant to share initially. But like always Cleamea managed to make her husband tell everything.

She thought for a moment ” During my childhood whenever we kids do some mistake and my father will catch my brother Pamar and ask him what happened. Because father knew he was the weakest of us and it would be easy to get information from him”

There was a moment’s pause. Then Rahun smiled and told “It is an old trick but I will give it a try. May be we might be able to get something”

Clemea replied ” You cannot say it straight that you liked my idea.”

Rahun smiled and kissed her deeply.

Pig was lying in his cell with his eyes closed. His already skinny face was looking skinnier. He was disturbed by the sound of cell door opening. Two soldiers came inside and asked him to get up. They caught on his hands and dragged him outside. They were taking him upstairs. Pig was a bit confused as he did not understand what was going on.

They reached top of the prison tower and saw Rahun standing over there.

Rahun started talking ” Enjoy the fresh air friend.”

Pig smiled and replied ” Thanks.” Closed his eyes and took a deep breathe.

Rahun looked at him for some time. ” Do you know who I am?” he asked.

“Yes of course, the youngest ever to make it into the court of ministers. Some say you are the most intelligent man in this country. There are many rumors going on around like when you were born you started talking very early much before any normal kid and by the age of 5 you beat some top scholars in debate”

Rahun gave a proud face” There are many stories about you also. Like origin of your name. But….. we both know people tend to create rumors around what they do not understand and what we hear is just a collective imagination of crowd. So let us move away from rumors and get back to truth……….. Why did you get caught?”

Pig started laughing ” If you are intelligent enough find it by yourself…..”

“Yes I was trying…. but then I remembered my childhood. When we kids does something naughty my father always ask my younger brother to find the truth because father knew he was the weakest of us.”

Pig after a pause” And you choose me to get your answer…….. ? My friend, do not go by ones appearance…. It can be misleading”

Rahun smiled” Yes that is absolutely true. That is why I choose him”. He pointed his fingers towards the ground. Beast was there in chains surrounded by guards.

Young minister was standing on the balcony looking at a distance very frustrated. He was lost in his thoughts that he did not realize king was standing behind him.

King asked ” My son Rahun you are looking terrible. What happened to you??”

He was taken by surprise by the voice. He looked back and saw king with a smile.
He told “You know the reason my lord”

” You are still worried about what happened over there? Sometimes people differ in opinion. You cannot get frustrated every time somebody disagree with you. You waste your own energy and life by doing that”

Rahun” I am not angry for them disagreeing with me. I am angry because of the way they showed it. I knew they did not like me. But today I felt like I am not at all part of group”

King” My son how are you expecting them to behave when you called them stupid?”

Rahun” Stupid?. I was just making my point.”

King ” By calling them stupid….”

Rahun ” I did not indent to offend anybody I was just making the point that there is some chance that pig and beast are playing with us. They are not the ones who will make this kind of mistake.”

King” May be you are true and they are wrong. But you could not make your point and win over them to your way of thinking. I bought you into the court seeing your intelligence and knowledge. But to get further from here you need the ultimate wisdom on how to deal with people.”

Rahun looked confused.

King continued ” Do not worry son. I am sure you will eventually learn that art by yourself”

King walked away as Rahun watched him still confused.
