Beyond time and death, for I become the highest rank. Im not gonna die or anything. But I want to… perhaps… marry the son of the grand king?

My name is Khnum, I don have any last name or middle name. Born on the lower ground or the lower part of my the nation.

My goal is to be top of the highly ranked General of the Eastern Nation. My rank right now is really low, I can stand this position but I needed to in order to become in the top rank.

Ill make it into one of those higher ranking generals that makes a good living from war work.

After Ive gotten through school Im going to do my best not to waste all my time on stupid things like love and shit.

I am not stupid! I will fight until my dying breath to protect this beautiful land and its people.

Its my dream, so no matter how hard I fight there will always be those who want to use this place to hurt others.

They are the ones that deserve my wrath and nothing else. I will kill anyone who threatens them. I swear by the God of War, I promise you all I will not fail until my last breath.

With my heart in my chest, ready to go. My life for theirs.

”Well, weve been here almost an entire day already. ” The soldier next to me said. I looked up at him, his hair was a dark brown with two streaks of red at the ends of his hair.

His eyes were green with flecks of a leaf. His smile reminded me of the sun when he sees the rain. His name was Rhuka. He has a nice face but looks rough and has a masculine body, came from a royal blood line unlike me.

Like hes seen more than he should. But his body screams strength. His armor looked strong enough for us to be protected.

Its made from steel and reinforced with metal plates that would withstand the strongest blow from a bear. Its black with gold stripes and silver details. There is even a large shield that has a golden scarab painted in it.

We are standing in the middle of the dessert waiting for the Caravan if they will take the bait.

”Rhuka… Are you sure this plan will work? ” I ask the man beside me, he looks so confident of his own plan.

”Of course, nothing to worry about ” he said, I just gave a sigh and continued looking around if theyll come near.

I hope this plan will go as planned.

The Caravan was a large caravan consisting of five wagons full of soldiers and supplies.

Two soldiers stood outside of the gates of the camp. They both had sharp swords and looked pretty bored.

As if they
e ready for something fun.

They didn even look like they
e scared at all.

I took my chance.

I ran towards Rhuka, the men saw my movement from the corner of their eye. Their faces were unreadable, I guess they didn expect me to actually make a move.

I pulled out my blade and charged forward. One of the men tried to grab me but missed, I cut his arm off. Blood sprayed everywhere.

A second later Rhuka punched him straight in his jaw making the other soldier lose his footing and fell on the ground holding his wounded arm.

He glared at me and got back on his feet, this time he wasn missing. He threw a punch which connected perfectly with my cheek and made me fall on my butt.

My vision started to blur.

My hand automatically went to touch my now swollen cheek. My blood dripped down my palm, staining the ground underneath me red.

This man isn gonna stop anytime soon.

The sound of a sword being drawn echoed through the field.

Another soldier jumped forward trying to hit Rhuka, but he was able to dodge him and grabbed his wrist, twisting it behind his back, while he put his weight onto the soldiers foot pressing him deeper in the ground full of sand.

The soldiers cries sounded distant.

One of the soldiers raised his sword high above his head to bring it down to Rhukas neck but he blocked the blow with his shield, then pushed him backwards. The man stumbled several steps before falling down on the ground gasping for air.

Then his opponent jumped at Rhuka again aiming a punch to his stomach. However… I saw that Rukha has a other side, with his bare hands, he rips off his head like a fruit that need to be twisted jus to be open.

”Did I scare you? ” He said and smiled at me like nothing happened just now.

”Yeah… ” I said still clutching my throbbing cheek, I can feel the sting of where it was bruised. Rhuka walked towards me picking my sword off the ground. ”That guy must be really stupid if he thinks he could attack an unarmed man and win. ” He commented and I nodded agreeing with him. ”You did great by twisting his head off ” I said playfully.

”Damn.. its the first time that I lost control while fighting ” He said and laughs for absolutely no **ing reason.

”The plan work, so lets head back and report this ” I said and stand up from the ground holding my swollen face.

”I can believe you had that kind of side ” I added and he just laughs awkwardly. ”Yeah… It was the first time I felt that thing. It feels so great to be specific ” he replied, we are now near the gates of the royal kingdom of the Eastern Nation.

As the gates open, we saw the king of Ehiro with his son Nefer. A young man who is blessed by the supreme god.

I kneeled down to pay respect, same as Rukha did. ”Good job by taking out the caravans and protecting our valley ” The king said. ”Thank you, your highness ” I said with a respectful tone.

”This is the seventh or tenth times when you protected the Valley, I want you to tell me what kind of reward to want ” he said making me shook my head making me uncomfortable cause of the reward.

What kind of reward is he talking about?
