The Queen With The Frozen Heart - A Suitable Wife


From touch of air in the butterfly’s wings, Sisa summoned the wind.

Her magic stretched itself and danced playfully among the jungle trees.

- Come now, she called it, and the magic obeyed.

In a strong gust she rode the wind through the jungle, to the queen's palace.


There the magic deposited her gently on the roof, next to the regal woman and the magical being that were waiting for her.

- Here she arrives, Lusiru smiled at Sisa, the flower that will save us all.

- But she is just a girl, Queen bursted.

- Like you once were yourself, Lusiru raised his eyebrows, take a look at her magic and tell me how she is just a girl to you.


The queen appraised Sisa, looking at the magic swirling around her.

- How are you able to control so much, she finally asked, you are stronger than my son!

- And she already loves your son, Lusiru nodded, don't you?

Sisa nodded back, she was afraid to trust her voice.


- You wear your pacha still on your left shoulder, the queen challenged Sisa.

- Yes, Sisa swallowed, I have not yet known a man.

- But you claim to love my son; Queen looked straight to her eyes.

- He spent just a moment in our village, Sisa whispered, and he promised to wed the boa princess for their help. But since the boa people left him alone after he turned into a monster, he is free again.


- I must say I'm rather glad for their treacherous actions, the queen smiled tightly; I would not enjoy having a boa for daughter-in-law. Even if she were a princess!

Sisa did not answer; it was not her place to comment who would be a suitable wife for Amarun.

The two women stared each other in silence, appraising their strengths.


- It is almost dark, Lusiru woke them up from their thoughts, and my brother will be waiting for us with Amarun. And there is still a lot to do before the darkness falls tonight.

    1. Lusiru is one of magical twins in the Amazon Kichwa tradition. It is also name of a star or a planet but I'm not absolutely certain which one it is.
