When James Hann died Tinett city went to mourning. The hard part was on Lene Hann who being the only daughter in the family and the only child who was supposed to take over the family. For years Hann family had been seen as the guardians of the city and James had prepared her daughter her whole life hoping one day she will lead the city. From the time Jin Sen had spent with the girl the only woman she had ever met who exceeds her hardwork and organisation was Quin.
Quin and Jin accompanied Lene in her father’s funeral and though it was a hard day for her she handled herself well. She had invited close friends and she always indroduced them as the most trusted friends of his father. She well knew the city population would want to attend but with help of the friends they prepared many ways to honour the man. The police of the city handed her a one bullet gun and a card valid till she was eighteen whereby the police would protect her.
Many organisations offered many things to the family and many send personal messages of condolences. Jin Sen kept on catching a certain man looking at her. Quin too had noticed and couldn’t help herself to make a joke at least to enlighten the day.
“For how long will we avoid him?” She asked. “She seems very intrested in you.”
“Aaaaagh! We are mourning a man five times he is. If he could be man enough he would have some respect to this family.” said Jin.
“I know you, and I can see you look at him diffrently. You are intrested,” teased Quin who had never seen Jin smile to a man the entire time they have been friends.
“Now, that you said that you make intrested in him. I have never looked at man twice without asking him what he really wants from me. You two have to admit he seems odd. Speaking of which, who is he?”
“I don’t know.” said Lene. Both Quin and Jin looked surprised. “I thought the people you invited were all close friends of the family?” Asked Jin.
“I did not invite him. He scares me and I have been avoiding him.” Lene said. There was the police in the funeral and very other many people so what he could here was just to observe and that’s why he had not approached them.
“Long before we knew each other I had respect for your family. If this person wants to disrespect your father by coming to your compound without invitation and attempt to disturb the peace then they are mistaken. He is fearless that’s why he was send here and you have to show them you are fearless. You back down and they will grow strong and have the courage to come again at you. So go to him and see what he wants.”
Quin and Jin did not go with her but rather go to the police and made sure they kept an eye on Lene. Within a short period of time Lene mourning face had changed to a bright one and was now smiling. “I must say, I have been with that girl and there is no diffrence between me and her when it comes to the view of men.” Jin said.
“Jin that man is getting into your mind. Everyone is keeping an eye on her, she will be fine.” Now people were leaving. The man was infact helping Lene say goodbye to the people. They could not leave without saying bye to Lene and make sure she was safe. The man walked with Jin to her house. Jin and Quin followed close by and when Lene turned and saw them she was very happy to indroduce them.
“These two have kept me from breaking the whole time. Come, you won’t believe who this is.” Lene was not very good at indroducing people.
“I know them, Jin and Quin, your work in this city can’t go unnoticed,” the man said. He stretched his hand to great Jin who stood still and Quin stretched her hand to covered that akward moment. “You know, you should not do that for her,” he said as he shook Quin’s hand. “I knew she would do that, I just wanted to see it for myself.”
“Jin, Quin this is Thomas Nikill from The Kagan Empire. You will get to see him more often since they are moving to Tinett soon.” There is a way Lene said Kagan as if it was suppossed to mean anything to her. The night went well than Jin had expected because Mr. Nikill kept on impressing her despite of her challenging him everytime. When he left Lene turned to Jin, “You two are meant for each other.”
“I’ve not met a man like that before I must say. It’s like he is not from ths continent.” Those word coming from Jin’s mouth made Quin gasp and smile at the same time.
