The Queen With The Frozen Heart 10



A group of men appeared under the canopy of the leaves at the limit of the fields with the jungle.

The men carried long chonta spears and blow pipes wit poisonous darts.

All of them had different animals in their chakras that they had hunted and two of the men carried a pekari, a jungle's wild boar, between them.

We have arrived, the first man called and the rest followed him in a row.

All of them were strong men, muscled and fearsome warriors of the forest.

The children run around them, and laughed in high voices, the women greeted them with joy.

The group laid their eyes on the prince and silence grew in the village.
 Who is he, asked a man with blue parrot feathers in his hair and a puma by his side, who is he and why is he in our village.

I have come well, answered the prince and bowed his head.

The women grew silent and returned to their fires, the children ran away.

Rumi stepped ahead, I welcomed him, he answered quietly, he has come well, and he has drinked our chicha.

The men looked at the stranger surprised, there was no way to throw him away tonight, he had been given chicha already, and with it their welcome and hospitality.

Well, we must show the stranger that we are hospitable people and we know how to treat the strangers, the man with the puma answered.
 I am not a stranger, prince answered, I am Amarun, your prince, and I have come to seek men to help me to free my father, the king, from the hands of the jaguar men and the vultures in the North.

Everyone fell quiet.

Let us talk; an old man very much alike Rumi answered finally, let us talk and drink ayawaska, so we can know what we should.

Yes kuraka, the other men nodded; that is the best thing we can do.

Let us talk and drink ayawaska, the sacred drink, the man with the puma nodded.

I am Ukuku, he said, like the ocelot.

A good name for a fierce warrior and sage hunter, the prince thought.

This is our kuraka, Ukuku nodded at the old man, our wise man, the one who talks with the nature and the spirits.
I am kuraka, the man nodded; my name is Urku, like the mountain. And I rise above the other men in my quest for the good of our people.

I am Amarun, the prince answered, like the noble boa, wise and ancient. And I have his magic, together with him I can talk with the earth, the water, the fire and the air.

That is good, the old man nodded, that is how it should be.

Women, Ukuki barked, get the pekari and get some food coming for us.

The women run to take the meat from the men and to start cooking.

Issa, bring us chicha, Ukuki called, we shall talk and kuraka needs to get ayawaska ready to be able to spirit travel.

Yes father, Sisa stared at her toes and ran to do as her father had ordered.

She is kacike's daughter, Amarun thought looking at her sinuous form, descendant of a chief, a woman worthy of a leader.
