In the land of seven realms , it's a tradition that all the prince and princess , the heir to the royal throne or of the royal blood get trained together in the land of Ivanah . Ivanah , is a land that belongs to no realm . It has kept its peace undamaged for a thousand years even at times of war among the kings . It's a safe haven for all . It is for that reason and the belief that when all the noble blood get to learn things together it would result in a fruitful political endeavor and to know and understand , other potentially powerful heirs of the realms which might prove beneficial in times of distress to manipulate one's move .
This time , the end of the white season , the training begins in all the categories like magic , swordplay , politics and battle strategy . The land of Ivanah was all set to receive the royal line of all the realms . No cadet from one realm is allowed to see the other until the beginning ceremony .
It was The day , the day of beginning . Irah the prince of Arwan was the first one to be introduced to the ring for their very first lesson on combat skills . Followed by all others , the training began . Irah was the first one to talk to them all and in no time he was friends with everyone . Who won't like to befriend Irah ? He soon became very close to them all . His mature behaviour and his loving nature made him the one to rely upon .
One fine day , Allister , a prince asked , " why is Arwan very secretive of everything Irah ? We know nothing of its wealth or glory ? We haven't seen anything in our own eyes ? Judging by your nature and ur land should be one of the wealthiest .No news passes across those big walls around your realm , unless you people want to . Why is it so ? As we all have become friends we would like to visit your realm . "
" Ammm !! " , Irah mumbled , trying to get out a suitable reply or a clever way of distracting them . The others were really taken aback by his irrelevant answers and a clear sign off distaste on the topic .
Everyone was so confused on why he was acting strange and being so resistant in talking about his realm . They started believing that his friendship is meaning less and just an attempt to befriend us for our wealth . They began to avoid him in everything . Irah still maintained his usual , irrespective of not getting anything back from the others as they once were . He could clearly see the wall growing between him and the others .
Facing failure in all his attempts to bring them back , Irah started to feel bad . One day Allister yelled at him , " what is wrong in visiting your realm ? If u can't even invite us for courtesy what kind of friend are you ? Is that all your friendship is ? why ? Aren't we important to you ? Oh ! Bloody bones ! I shouldn't waste my time like this ! Talking to a rock !! " and moved away from him .
Hurt and eyes gleaming with tears of pain , Irah sat alone in the table . He could understand how hurt his friends were . It pained him for being so resistive at this . He started crying . Everytime when someone requests to visit , he turns his back on them , and it seriously pained to do so , thinking how hurt and shocked/embarrassed his friend would feel . But he could do nothing . All his friends were born in a wealthy realm , gold and rubies all around . They all take him to be a wealthy one , with how he carries himself around . But no one knew the truth that his realm and his palace is actually in ruins . A secret that is kept away from everyone for reasons . Irah doesn't want to invite them to a realm in ruins . But he promised himself that one day , when all is right and when his realm is in better shape , he will invite them all , hoping that his invitation would be accepted . He wiped his tears , forced a smile on his face and left the room to meet Allister .
