Blood Brothers!  Prologue

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_da75646e_ba75a467_zpshdtwxoxi

Blood Brothers! is a story about four Comanche friends and their families in the late 1860's Texas . . . Quanah Whitefeather and his three best friends, cleared the land and built the houses in the village, where they lived. They named the village River's Edge, for the body of water, that runs across the end of the parsal of land. The men settled here, after The Treaty Of Medicine Lodge was passed by the white man's government. The treaty offered our people churches, schools and homes in return for their land.

The four friends, Quanah Whitefeather, Sohan Hunter, Santosh Fisher and Waya Sweeney didn't want to live on a government owned reservation. Since they were all about the same age and best friends, they decided they and their families, would be happier living on their own land.

The Whitefeather family consists of Quanah, his wife Marala, their oldest son Shardul and toddler son Chandar.

The Sweeney family includes Waya, his wife Mali, their son Balik and toddler daughter Samir.

The Fisher family consists of Santosh, his wife Lali, their son Balik and his twin sister Hala.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_da75646e_5a7490d2_zps7vkqo25g

The fourth family consists of Sohan Hunter and his wife Hita.  The couple had yet to have children.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_da75646e_1a759d13_zpsk1hxtv93

Hala, Nachik, Balik and Shardul meet in the Gathering Place to have school.  Hita sees that they do their lessons and is there if they have any questions.

Lali works in the garden and after Mali puts the toddlers downfor a nap, she joins Lali.  

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_da75646e_9a74932b_zpscw65q3i4

When Balik finished with his lessons he offered to help his mother in the garden.  She told him no.  Gardening was woman's work.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_da75646e_1a74937c_zpsh6ao92qm

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_da75646e_da74936d_zpself7xvxq

Hita came out into the garden to help, but Samir woke up from her nap and she went to get the toddler out of her cot.  Hita played with her and cuddled her.  She so wished for a baby of her own.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_da75646e_ba75c412_zps2sleganb

Cooking is also woman's work.  The women take turns sharing the responsibility for feeding the village.  Everyone eats meals together in the Gathering Place, with men and children eating first and then the women.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_da75646e_7a75e17d_zpsaewj4dcp

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_da75646e_da75e18c_zpsd3zlyriz

They talk to each other about their children and their daily lives, but are not allowed to discuss their husbands.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_da75646e_7a75c598_zpslmnqfjym

The others overlook the odd behavior of the one, understanding the reason why.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_da75646e_fa75a665_zpsmgnwqlqm
Being friends with all the members of the village is accepted and even encouraged.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_da75646e_9a75a700_zpsxceq0ibs

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_da75646e_ba75a6cf_zpswlc6thrg

But being too friendly is discouraged and unacceptable.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_da75646e_9a75c8f3_zpsgt8uwcr3

The men meet in the barn and decide on the rules the village lives by.  They discuss any rules that need changing or new ones that need to be made.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_da75646e_da75c9ee_zpslugltwym

Sometimes the discussions get heated and they disagree.

But soon all is forgiven with a friendly hug between friends.

Blood Brothers!  Chapter 1

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_7a774cec_zps1dsmw11l

​The story about four Comanche friends and their families in late 1960's Texas, continues . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_fa774a51_zps9altf9iq

"Our husbands act like little boys sometimes", said Hita. watching Waya and Sohan playing Punch me-Punch U.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_da774d53_zpsib18lwhe
Quanah's wife, Marala was trying to teach her youngest son (Chandar) to talk. His birthday was tomorrow and he still wasn't talking that well.
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_fa774dc3_zpsqkzpy840

"Say 'Ma-ra-la', that's who I am", she told the toddler.
Chandar gave his mother a mad look. He's a stubbon little boy

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_1a774df6_zpsz1a105ah

Quanah came over and picked him up, "Come 'mon, I'll teach you to talk", he told the toddler.
"You're too hard on the boy", said Quanah.
"Well, his birthday is tomorrow and it's for his own good. He needs to know how to express himself, before he becomes a child", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_fa7a7829_zpsrfhcxblq

It wasLali's turn to fix supper.  She cooked kasha for supper.
kasha, also known as porridge, contains whole grain and vegetables. The Russion word for feast, kasha can feed many people at once

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_3a775794_zpsojtugp8q

After supper, Marala held Chandar, while she watched Quanah play with their oldest son (Shardul).

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_7a775158_zps7u3kerib

Quanah seemed to be enjoying it more than his son.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_ba77526d_zps5b5zr9sm

Then Shardul got mad at Balik. Balik was surprised, by his friend's actions.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_1a787880_zpsocpe7zsb

"You shouldn't show anger to another, if you don't want them to show anger back", Hala, told Shardul. "When I become your wife, one day, I don't want to ever see you do that to me", she said.

(Shardul and Hala, being the oldest boy and girl in the village, have been promised to each other, by their fathers)

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_3a787969_zps3pmoubmb

"Hala, I heard what you told Shardul just now. He will be the head of your household, it's not your place to tell him, what he must do", Lali told her daughter.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_3a774ab5_zpspzdugots

Hita picked up Hala's doll which had been left in the yard and held it. "I'll have to ask Sohan, again", she thought to herself, "Not that it's going to do much good

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_3a7897f5_zpszm6wru9k

She went inside their hut and relaxed on the bed and asked Sohan to join her
"I want to try for a baby again, when we do woo hoo", she told Sohan.
"Alright, I'll do my best", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_da7898bf_zpse5ldrfgf

"I hope you have my son, growing in your belly now", he said.
"Yes, me too", dhe said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_fa7898e5_zpsate7xuuz

Hita turned over and pretended to sleep, as Sohan scooted up close behind her

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_da78a7ff_zpscaxc3z7g

After Sohan had fallen asleep, Hita go out of the bed.

Then she worried, that she still ​might not​ pregnant

Blood Brothers!  Chapter 2

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_9a785d1d_zpsaigyej0q

The next day, over at the General Store. . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_3a7868d2_zpsgwof7dgo

Jack Ellis and his daughter, Patience arrived at the store.  Jack and his family live a ways down the road.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_fa78623c_zpssirs36wo

Jack chatted with his brother-in-law, Edward Sinclair, the owner and proprietor

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_da786341_zpsw8pczdt9

When Quanah Whitefeather walked into the store, Jack immediately, stopped chatting with Edward, to inquire as to what Quanah wanted.
"May I help you find something?", Jack asked Quanah
"My son has a birthday tonight and I want to get a present for him", answered Quanah.
"Well, I have some nice toys for little boys.  Just look around and maybe y'all will find something", said Jack.
"Thank you, I will", he said

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_da7863fb_zpsdvqtmqho

"Papa, I want some makeup", said Patience
"Sweetheart, you know your mama won't allow you to wear it until after your next birthday", he answered.

"I want some shoes with high heels, like Mama wears", said Patience.
"Patience, sweetheart, you'll fall and break your neck, if you wear them", said Jack

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_5a7865fc_zpsqmodr7yb

Then Patience noticed Quanah, standing there.  She had never seen a Native American before, only heard about them from her mother.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_9a7866ad_zpsszzb8xea

"Do you have roaches where you live?", she asked.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_1a7866c4_zpsj1qamcky

"Do you have big rats in your house?", she asked

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_1a7866fa_zpsppifp3cq

"My mama says, your kind more than likely do",  said Patience

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_ba7866b6_zpsrgjlctin

Quanah looked down at the beautiful, outspoken, golden-haired child, but ignored her comment.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_3a78635f_zpshig9nhnd

"I'm so sorry, for what my niece said, but childern will be childern, you know", said Edward.
"I understand.  Childern are like magpies, they repeat everything they hear", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_da786845_zpsxpaj7mhx

Quanah purchased a toy boat for Chandar's birthday gift, then he and Santosh left to return to the village.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_7a78687d_zpscutw02ay

"I hope you don't mind, but I appologized to that Comanche, for Hope's coment, which Patience repeated to him", Edward told Jack.
"That's alright, I understand, you don't need any trouble with them", said Jack.
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_da786976_zpswlnpvvxi

Then Jack and his daughter left to go home to her beautiful, outspoken, blonde headed mama.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_7a78778e_zpsiljq2iup

Santosh and Quanah returned to the village.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_5a774850_zpsxaxovr7c

Quanah entered The Gathering Place and grabbed Marala and gave her a hug.
"Quanah, did you forget, this is a public place", she reminded him, "You can do that when we're in our hut."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_7a774837_zpsjjtasitp

"Now that you're back, I have to bake a birthday cake for Chandar", she said, hurrying off.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_5a787a4a_zpsykqjx1yq

While Marala baked a birthday cake . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_5a788872_zpskyyy4m9h

Quanah took a bath to get the smell of the white man's store off him.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_da788899_zps7m316pbz

Hita came into the toilet and quietly stood, watching him bathe

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_da7888cc_zps3dmmyomw

Quanah got out of the tub.  He dressed and turned around.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_da7888bf_zpsswl4ewdm

 Hita tried to give him a romantic hug.
"No!", he said, pushing her away! "You belong to my friend Sohan and I'm married to Marala.  This is not right/"
"But I want a baby and Sohan is unable to give me one", she said
"If it is meant for you to have a son, then you will have one with Sohan", said Quanah

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_5a788902_zpsn1uajyxa

Then he walked away from her, again.

Blood Brothers!  Chapter 3

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_ba787bdd_zps9bt1igyy

Over at the village, when it was time for him to grow up, Quanah carried Chandar over to his birthday cake.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_1a787c5d_zpsq3u45gqg

Chandar grew up, still in his father's strong arms.  Then Quanah placed his youngest son on the floor

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_9a787c97_zpswaskabrl

Then Chandar jumped up and gave his father a friendly hug

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_3a787ce5_zpsh1leycue

Quanah sit with his sons and enjoyed the cake, Marala had made

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_1a787ed4_zpseyiwbt0t

"You look a lot like your father", Hala told Chandar, when she saw him outside

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_fa787f18_zps0tp54afa

"Do you think I'm betterlookingr than my brother?", he asked.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_1a787f73_zpsjbikiojh

"Your face looks better than Shardul's, but you're both too skinny", she giggled
"Let's play Tag.  You're it!", he said, tapping her arm.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_1a788014_zpsxgl2ddog

Chandar ran as fast as he could around the lot.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_da78802a_zpso9belzp9

Hala chased him.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_9a7dda2b_zpsi3nvjdsa

Quanah was out in the yard, doing his yoga exercises  Being in such good physical condition and  having excellant control of mind over body, he's able to accomplish the most difficult yoga positions.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_7a774cec_zps1dsmw11l

When he finished his yoga exercises, he played Punch Me - Punch U with Santosh
Since they're pretty evenly matched, the game was a draw.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_fa774e26_zpsuxjpmkit

"I know you've noticed Hita's odd behavior lately, the same as me", Lali, told Marala
"I refuse to listen to gossip about that poor woman", said Marala
"Come 'mon, what's a little friendly chat between friends, gonna hurt?", said Lali.
"We should be working in the garden, instead of standing here chatting, anyway", Marala said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_da7de004_zps5s8zmm1i

They watered the cabbage plants and Lali weeded the garden.  "I'm going to go sit down on the riverbank", said Marala, "Come join me, when you finish weeding."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_ba7de09b_zpsqui3ghve

Marala sit down and enoyed the warm sun, on her beautiful tan skin

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_7a7de101_zpsm4wvif6z

Lali joined her, when she finished her work. "Doesn't this feel wonderful?", she said.  
"Yes, it is nice, but I better go get supper done, so we'll have time for Samir's birthday, before bedtime", said Marala.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_9a7deff5_zpsjmg7rugv

After supper, Mali told Waya, "It's time for Samir to grow up".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_9a7df0ab_zpsxklsdwrc

Waya picked up the toddler and carried her to her cake.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_1a7df21f_zpsu9qgutru

When he put her down on the rug, Samir started growing up.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_5a7dfa05_zpsql1ttogd

She grew up into a very cute child.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_5a7df90f_zpsjwnef0qx

She sit at the table beside Hala and ate a huge slice of her birthday cake

"I'm glad you finally grew up, now you can help me with the chores", said Hala.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_fa7df876_zpsrhrkphyp

"And your father can decide which one of us boys, you're going to marry, said Nachik. "Me or Chandar."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_da7df8c7_zpsumi8qs7p

"I'm just a child.  I'm not old enough to be a wife", Samir said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_da7df122_zpsdjb2zz25

"She ain't got to worry about being my wife   I ain't never getting married", laughed Chandar, thinking to whole idea silly.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_fa7dfa56_zpsvos368rx

Hala looked across the room and saw Hita

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_ba7df173_zps7puol6c1

Poor Hita was slumped down to the floor in a stupor  She seemed to be having a conversation with someone, only she could see

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_1a7df1d6_zpshimjpphc

Her husband and Santosh's son were both doing the sign for she's crazy.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_5a7de831_zpsb0xydme4

Quanah stood at the door to his hut and thought about Hita's odd behavior in the Gathering Place.   "Something has to be done.  That woman is an embarrassment to Sohan", he thought.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_ba7de91f_zpswdzvkbu3

He went inside and lay brside Marala.  His and Marala's families had arranged their marriage, when they were childern.  If he had had a choice, he wouldn't have ever gotten married at all, but that wasn't the Comanche way.  "At least, she had been able to give him two fine sons and she wasn't crazy", he thought to himself.

Blood Brothers!  Chapter 4

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_da8560b8_zpsrlgaktui

Waya Sweeney and his wife (Mali) were discussing the decision, he must make, concerning their daughter's future.  Waya needs to give his answer, at the next council meeting.  
"I'm sure whichever one of the boys you choose, he'll be the best for her", Lali told him.

"That's the problem, I don't know which one I want her to marry", he said

"I know the final decision is yours, but would it hurt to ask Samir, which boy she likes better?", asked Mali.
"Yes, maybe knowing how she feels about them, might help me decide", he said.

"Samir, come here?", Mali called.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_7a856230_zpsjgkd8qe7

"Your father has something to ask you", said Mali, when Samir came.

"Father, what do you want to ask me?", she said

"Samir, I was just wondering, which one of your friends, do you like better?  Nachik or Chandar?", he asked.

"I like them both a lot, but I think I like Chandar better", she answered, "He's much more pleasing to the eye".

"Of course, Chandar doesn't ever want to get married, so I guess Nachik would make the best husband", said Samir.

"Thank you Samir, you may go now", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_fa856100_zpsddse7xqv

"Do you think, she should marry Nachik, since Chandar doesn't want to get married?", asked Mali.
"Chandar will do whatever Quanah tells him to do,  if I decide he's the one for my daughter, then so  be it", said Waya.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_7a7eeac9_zps5jbqom0g

At the far end, of the lot, Quanah was resting on the riverbank.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_5a7eebec_zpsccjkc7an

Hita sit down on the ground next to him.  "It's so quiet and peaceful here", she said, thinking outloud

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_9a7eece3_zpsufdtxvlp

Quanah jumped up quickly, when he heard her.  "You didn't have to get up", she said, "I was just gonna watch you."  

"I told you before, having those kind of feelings, it's not right", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_3a7eeccb_zpsnmzgrdip

Then she tried to give him a hug and he pushed her away

"Don't touch me!", he shouted.

"What's wrong with showing a little affection between friends?", asked Hita

"Why don't you listen to me?", said Quanah

"I just want you to put a baby in my belly", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_7a7eedaa_zpsesdor5ez

Since it wasn't any need to answer, Quanah walked away from Hita, again.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_9a7eee0b_zpsiecw1wj1

"Why won't he listen to me?  I just want a tiny little baby, like YOU"., she told her flour sack baby.

Quanah walked across the yard and entered the barn, where his friends were waiting.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_1a7dfe49_zpssrlqlv9q

"The first thing we need to discuss, is which one of our sons, is going to marry Waya's daughter, Samir", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_7a7dff7f_zpsncmxzxa5

"My son Nachik is the next oldest.  He should get married before your son, Chandar", offered Santosh.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_5a7dfde3_zpst77ybmar

"That's true, but it's up to Waya to decide.  Samir is his daughter", Quanah said

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_1a7dfe00_zpszxhkhxye

"My daughter will marry Nachik, since Chandar has been heard to say he would never get married", said Waya.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_9a7dfe54_zpsnk47dv9t

"Good, that is settled.  Now, we need to discuss, the problem with your wife, Sohan.  We all know she is an embarrassment to you", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_5a7dfe6a_zpstydyltwb

"I know what's causing Hita's problem.  She wants a baby so much, that's it's making her crazy", said Sohan.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_da7dfe61_zpsvtkcsx0k

"If you can't give her one, then let someone else try!", Waya said, being sarcastic

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_1a7dfe73_zpsmzngfmkm

"That's exactly what I've been thinking.  Quanah, you're the chief, will you help me out?", said Sohan

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_7a7e022b_zpsebwccbmv

"How can you ask me this?", said Quanah, surprised, that his friend would ask such a thing.

"We have been friends since we were childern.  I would never betray you, by doing woo hoo with your wife.  She belongs to you

"Yes, but I'm giving you my permission to give me a son",said Sohan.  Then he looked over at Waya and Santosh, "Do we all agree?", he asked

"I agree", said Waya.

"I also agree", said Santosh.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a7f0abd_ba7e007f_zps1p45jrhp

"Since everyone is in agreement, I'll do it", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!  Chapter 5

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_da859068_zpsgzezanlj

Out in the yard, Hita was talking to her flour sack baby.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_fa85643e_zpsf4bytrcu

"Hita, I have a solution to your problem", said Sohan.
"What problem is that, Sohan?", she asked.
"Your wanting a baby so much, that's it's driving you mad", he explained.

"The council decided, Quanah will give us a baby".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_3a856474_zpsscvhclcp

"You mean, Quanah agreed to do it?", she asked, surprised

"Yes, it's all set", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_fa856916_zpsxgfbgc6n

Sohan saw Quanah and told him, "I told Hita what the council decided and she agreed to do it".

"Tell her, I'll be over tonight.  I just want to get it over with", said Quanah

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_9a85babc_zpsmnvjhoxf

Quanah gazed out the window deep in thought, until he heard his wife (Marala) call him.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_ba85bbd8_zpsen6m3mjk

"Is there anything troubling you, my husband?", she asked, "You haven't seemed yourself all day."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_5a85bbc9_zpsdwbvrvqk

"I just have a little problem, I need to take care of", said Quanah, "Nothing for you to worry about."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_9a85b392_zpsye9ehdql

Chandar and Shardul played Punch U - Punch Me.

"Come 'mon, hit me", Shardul teased.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_da85b52b_zpsilituwuz

Samir and Hala were sitting on the sofa.  "I don't know which boy I want to marry!", said Samir.

"I wish you would shout up about it", Hala said, "It's not your decision anyway."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_da85b509_zpsta3n7xil

"I know, but my father is taking so long to decide", she said

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_7a85b646_zpssnmc2xfo

"Aren't you glad, we didn't have to wait to find out, who we were gonna marry?", whispered Shardul.

"Yes, I've always known I belonged to you", said Hala.

"When we have our next birthdays, then we can hug and kiss like our parents do", he whispered.

"Yes, we can", she giggled

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_1a85b93f_zpseqvgbh7i

Samir was watching Nachik and Chandar playing chess.  "I wonder which one my father will choose", she thought to herself, "Whether my father choses Chandar or Nachik, I will have to abide by his decision, because that's the Comanche way."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_1a86c88f_zpsy8ptytcd

Later that night after the women and children were in bed, Quanah was relaxing in the large tub of warm water with his three friends.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_7a858410_zpsfrnfnc8m

"When are you going to give Sohan and Hita a baby, Quanah?", asked Santosh

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_ba858381_zpssnnvqeqc

"I'm planning to do it tonight", he answered.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_9a8583bd_zps6j6p5thz

"What happens if after you do it, she decides she likes your woo hoo better than Sohan's?", asked Waya.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_5a858426_zpsppzalgbg

"I guess I could keep two women satisfied, just as well as one", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_ba85849f_zpseiqbcc8q

Then he felt the water, as it splashed in his face.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_1a8584b1_zpsemzu27vg

"That wasn't funny", said Sohan.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_5a8584c7_zpsaovooe7x

"You know I would never do woo hoo with your wife, without your permission", said Quanah, splashing him back.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_da859199_zpsed1xvcqb

"Well, Mister Talk-Big, are you ready to give my wife a baby?", asked Sohan

"You mean right now?", asked Quanah.

"She's expecting you, just go on in", said Sohan

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_ba85c269_zpsppg76qhm

Quanah went over to Sohan's hut.  He went into the livingroom.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_1a85e237_zpsdot64vi3

He lit a fire in the fireplace, to warn off the chill.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_fa85c1c3_zpsbm6kexit

Hita came into the room, talking to her flour sack baby

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_ba85c357_zpszuoi3qfa

When she saw Quanah, she said,"You saw me, huh?"

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_ba85c31b_zps8srpoujg

"Hita, I know your want for a baby is driving you mad", said Quanah, "That's why I'm here."


Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_da85c343_zpszh6z2mnu

"Hita, don't get any ideas, this is the only time we're doing woo hoo and it's only because Sohan is my friend", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_da85ea0a_zpsv33r0kwz

Then she jumped into his strong arms.  "Alright, take me to the bedroom", she said

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_da85c70c_zpsygpshsqx

Quanah did as she asked and madeout with her.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_ba85c761_zpsxrz85gb4

And they did woo hoo, Try for a Baby.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_7a85cad8_zpsdjckitrt

"Thank you, Quanah", said Hita

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_fa85caa9_zpslvetelbj

"You're welcome.  "It wasn't as bad as I expected", he thought to himself.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_ba85cb3f_zpssqqradri

"I must go home.  Marala will be worried", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_5a85cbff_zpshwmqdage

He ran across the yard to the toilet.  He took a bath, to wash away the smell, of his time with Hita

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_7a85aee6_zpsmqvfinxu

He stood at the door of his hut.  "Good, the hut was quiet, that meant Marala and his sons were still sleeping.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_5a860a50_zpsekzymi5v

Quanah undressed and got into bed beside Marala, but he was unable to go back to sleep.  Marala must never find out what he had done.  It would break her heart.

Blood Brothers!  Chapter 6

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_7a85df16_zps2gzdrmsv

When Hita woke up the next morning, Sohan asked her, "It wasn't too bad, was it?"

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_9a85df3b_zpslqcb5zyg

"No, it wasn't too bad", she told him, but she was thinking, "It was the most wonderful woo hoo, I've ever had".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_3a85dfa9_zps7n2ylaec

"That's a relief.  I didn't want to think, I made you do anything you didn't want to.  Do you think you have my son in your belly now?, he asked.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_5a86f74f_zpsw4yeovf2

"YES, I do!", she said, as she ran out the door and ran across the yard to the toilet.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9a85a2b6_9a86d6a2_zpswxdojdwb

She threw up. "Oh my, I've got a real, honest-to-goodness baby in my belly", thought Hita.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a79b91c_9a785d1d_zpssixohgyl

Over at The General Store in River's Edge

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_5a8ab956_zpsxq7otvdp

Edward Sinclair, owner and proprietor, was chatting with Waylon Fairchild, a local gardener.  "I only have those grape vines and the apple tree, but I'd appreciate it, if you'd take a look at them sometime", said Edward.
"I'll be glad to look at them, from time to time", said Waylon, that's what friends are for".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_5a8aa95d_zpsqkjn5eac

Since Waylon was the only customer, Edward asked him to play a game of chess.

"Have you seen them Comanches who done set up a whole village down the road?", asked Waylon.

"Yes, as a matter of fact, two of them came in the other day to buy a birthday gift for one of their  sons", said Edward, "They seem to be pretty nice folks".

"Well, I ain't seen none of them, but I imagine they ought to have a pretty big garden, to feed all that bunch", he said

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_5a8ab8df_zpspyixpnax

Edward's brother-in-law, Jack Ellis came into the store.

"If I can help you wih anything, let me know", said Edward.
"Alright, I will", answered Jack.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_fa8aac6b_zps5w9bxqsu

Then Quanah Whitefeather walked into the store.

"Is there anything in particular, you'll looking for?", asked Edward

"My oldest son is having a birthday tonight and I thought I might see something he'd like", said Quanah.

"Did your other son like the toy ship you brought him?", asked Edward

"Yes, he said it looked like the one in a storybook he has", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_da8acf0e_zpsb3fmuhsk

"I wonder if that Comanche is married", Christy Statton, thought to herself, "He's the most beautiful man, I've ever seen".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_ba8acf3c_zpsdbh5crfs

"I beg your pardon, but will you join me in a game of chess?", Christy asked Quanah.
"Yes, I would like to play chess", he answered

"If you don't mind me asking, do you have a wife in your village?", she asked.
"Yes, I have Marala", he said, "Do you have a husband?"
"Goodness no, I'm a single lady", she giggled, "That's why I asked you, if you had a wife."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_fa8aadcb_zpscrfqvcdc

Quanah played a game of chess with Christy

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_da8ab9da_zpsbzc9s2no

She enjoyed the game, but enjoyed more being able to look at Quanah, sitting across from her.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_7a8c0153_zps3w7exl3m

Edward greeted Jake Cooper, when he came into the store.  Jake and his family recently moved to River's Edge

"Let me know, if there's anything I can help you with", said Edward

"Thanks, I will", said Jake

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_ba8abaf2_zps9xhaoidv

Edward went over to chat with Komei Tellerman, a local Indian scout.  He  enjoyed listening to Komei, as much as Komei enjoyed talking.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_3a8ab945_zpstswpojz0

Goopy GilsCarbo, a local, was chatting with Quanah, "A goodlooking fellow like you must have lots of wives, right?", he asked.

"Yes, I have a different one to woo hoo, every day of the week", said Quanah, appearing very serious.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_ba8c007a_zpsrdfpx13a

"Wow, he must be some man, to keep that many women satisfied", Goopy thought to himself

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_7a8ac867_zpstjzmcwxh

That fellow was just pulling your leg", said Waylon, when Goopy told him what Quanah had said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_9a8aaf50_zpssxxzgo9r

"Really, do you think so?" asked. Goopy.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_1a8ac870_zpseh3hpmi1

"Yeah, that Comanche and his friends, only have one wife apiece, unlike the ones out on the plains", said Komei.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_da8acd7d_zpsifek9mlx

"My wife said to tell you, she was sorry for the remarks, our daughter made to you", said Jack, "Hope said, she doesn't know where Patience heard them".  
"Tell your wife, that in the future, to be more careful, what she says in front of your daughter", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_7a8c21e1_zpsniiwls6z

Then Quanah and Sohan left to go home

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_da8c093b_zpsiyznmug9

"That Comanche is smarter than a lot of white folks, I know", thought Jake, who had overheard the conversation between Jack and Quanah

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_5a8ab8df_zpspyixpnax

"I got a bad feeling about that Comanche, he's too smart for his own good", Jack told Edward.
"Maybe you should just forget it.  We don't need any trouble from their kind", said Edward, "Did you see those fangs, he's got?  He could tear you to pieces, if he had a mind to".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_7a8ad8d7_zpshjgxtfdz

Right down the road from the General Store, is Jack Ellis' house.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_1a8c113e_zpsxbkskzdp

This is Jack's beautiful, blonde, opinionated wife, Hope.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_3a8ade2d_zpsjcgsbrds

His daughter Patience, whom you already met

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_ba8ade3f_zpsbh4hczgt

And Patience's faternal twin sister, Charity.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_5a8adafe_zps6yezxmkg

"I met our new neighbor, Jake Cooper, over at Edward's store this afternoon", said Jack.

"You mean to say, we actually got some neighbors besides those savages?", asked Hope.
"Now Hope, watch what you're saying in front of the girls", he said.

"Well, what do you want me to call them?", she asked.
"They're Comanche and they seem to be nice enough folks", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_9a8ada5a_zpsqmjiih2u

"I saw one of them last week, when I went with Father to Uncle Edward's store", said Patience, "I asked him if his house had roaches and big rats and he said no".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_5a8adc26_zpsxppqcefq

"Your daughter even told him, that her mother said it", Jack told Hope

"Well, you don't think he's going to admit to having roaches and rats do you?", she said, "Excuse me, I've got to get supper started".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_1a8c0f04_zps8qrrdm37

Hope went into the kitchen, "Mattie, how long before supper will be done?", she asked.
"I'm starting it now, Mrs. Ellis", said Mattie.

"Good, I'll tell Mr. Ellis", said Hope.

Blood Brothers!  Chapter 7

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_da8f0532_zps5nv5zlxj

At the River's Edge schoolhouse, a new teacher arrived this morning.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_9a8c8d7a_zps6b1uvh4j

Miss Molly O'Shay, who recently received her teaching certificate from the women's college in Houston, lit a fire in the pot bellied stove.  She wanted the schoolroom to be warm and confortable for the childern.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_5a8c91d1_zpsxhxrrkvn

She sit at her desk, nervously awaiting the arrival of her students.  At precisely nine o'clock, the students started to arrive.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_7a8c8d3b_zpsf3kf8pg2

"Students, my name is Miss O'Shay and I'm your new teacher.   When I call your name, please say present, then open your penmanship practice book.  We will be doing lines for the next hour".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_ba8c9d2e_zpsibgsi1gt

She noticed there was only two boys in the class.  Ben Cooper, a cute child with brown hair . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_fa8c9868_zpszu4rbibu

And Chandler Platz, a cute boy with red curly hair.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_da8c9087_zpspufblgn4

There was seven girls in the class.   Sarah Cooper, a pretty child with long, silky brown hair . . .

 Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_da8c9087_zpspufblgn4

Megan Browning, a rather homely child with brown hair

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_ba8c90a9_zpsgl0bu49a

Patience Ellis, a pretty child with beautiful, long blonde hair

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_da8c90d1_zpsufi7zjs5

Charity Ellis, a cute child with beautiful, long chestnut brown hair

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_fa8c9093_zpsyhhymqme

Katherine Martin, a cute child with auburn curls

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_9a8c99e6_zpsqx21jwvz

Tosha Go, a rather homely teenager with blonde plaited hair

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_fa8c99db_zpshgpmyfba

And Meadow Thayer, a pretty teenager with long, blonde hair

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_5a8f0472_zps5nxf5lyq

Molly couldn't help but notice how varied the students were in their dress.  The Ellis sisters (Patience and Charity) and Katherine Martin definitely came from wealthy families.  The other students' parents must be working class or farmers.  "No matter, I'm here to teach them all the same things, reading, writing and arithmetic", she thought to herself.  Now she needed to inquire about a room to rent in a suitable family's home.   Her small savings wasn't going to last very long, with her staying in the rooming house.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_3a91b124_zps3bvnllnp

After school had ended for the day, Molly walked over to the General Store.  If anybody in town had a room for rent, the store owner would know.

Molly entered the store and introduced herself to the owner.  "I was wondering if you know of anyone around here, who has a room for rent?", she asked.

"Yes, as a matter of fact", said Edward, "My brother-in-law, Jack Ellis, has an extra room in his house, that you might be able to rent."

"I have two students named Patience and Charity Ellis", she said, "Would they be his daughters?"
"Yes, they are", said Edward.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_7a91b204_zpszmiuocto

Just then, Santosh came into the store.

"Pardon me, Miss O'Shay, I need to wait on this customer", said Edward

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_fa8aac6b_zps5w9bxqsu

"What can I help you with today?", asked Edward.
"I want to know if you knew anybody who wants to buy a horse?", asked Quanah.,

"I don't rightly know of anyone off-hand, but I'll ask around", said Edward.

"Thank you", said Quanah..
"No need to thank me, that's what friends are for", said Edward

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1a8d7aea_7a8c21e1_zpsniiwls6z

"Did I hear him right?", asked Santosh.
"Yes, he said, 'that's what friends are for' ", said Quanah.
"That's what came out of his mouth, but they all lie", said Santosh.

"Yes, you're right", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_1a91b133_zpsmxubampx

"I'll be glad to walk you over to the Ellis Place and introduce you to my brother-in-law", said Edward.
"I don't want to be a bother", said Molly.
"No bother, I can use the fresh air", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_7a91cbef_zpsckpkto4v

When they arrived, Edward introduced Molly to Jack, "Miss O'Shay needs a room to rent.  I told her you might have one".
"Yes we do, but you'll have to talk to my wife", said Jack, Hope has final say-so, when it comes to household decisions."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_fa8d4732_zpsenkfd5cx

"Miss O'Shay, how long have you been teaching?", asked Hope, "You don't look much older than my daughters".

"Oh, I just recently graduated from the women's college in Houston.  The school in River's Edge is my first teaching assignment.  I have so many hopes and plans for my students", said Molly, enthusiastically.

"Would you like to see the room?", asked Hope.
"Yes, thank you", said Molly.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_5a8d4887_zps6zgk9jsx

"Well, this is it", said Hope, "It's small, but it's neat and clean."

"It's big enough and it's decorated lovely", said Molly.

"Thank you", said Hope.

Molly asked, "When may I move in?"
"You can bring your things around tomorrow morning", said Hope.
"Since tomorrow is a Saturday, that will be perfect for me", said Molly

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_da8fe1d6_zpsbfxk5wga

Patience and Charity, who had had their birthdays earlier, were sitting on the porch.

"I still look like such a child", said Patience, "I need to do something different with my hair".

"Yes, I feel the same way, but you know we're not allowed to cut it?", said Charity.

This month's issue of mother's Harper's Bazar magazine has pictures of the latest hairstyles on the cover", said Patience, "I'm sure we can find a style for long hair".
(Harper's Bazaar magazine had it's debut in 1867 and was originally spelled Harper's Bazar.  It was an American fashion magazine aimed at women of the upper-middle and upper classes).

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_fa8feabc_zps0zthoeat

Patience went to the mirror and changed her hairstyle to one, she thought made her look older.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_7a8fe9ba_zpsjx1zl4gc

Then Charity changed hers into a style, she thought more becoming

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_5a926dc3_zpsixj6ibvd

"That hairstyle makes you look beautiful", Patience told her sister.
"Thank you, but you're still more beautiful than me", said Charity, "Oh, I so wish I had been born with blonde hair, too".

Their mother called them into the parlor.
"Girls, Miss O'Shay is moving into our extra bedroom tomorrow", said Hope

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_5a8d482c_zpsdjvokfjo

"I believe we're going to enjoy having a teacher right here in our own home", said Jack, "Isn't that right girls? I'm looking forward to us having some stimulating, after supper conversation",said Jack.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_ba92f7ce_zps5decvyma

"Yes Father", they said in unison.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_ba91de49_zpshvlm4kno

When Santosh and Quanauh returned from the store. . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_1a904597_zpszonzk3wm

Santosh got in the tub and asked his wife to join him.
"At times like this, I know why I got married", said Santosh

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_5a9051ec_zps7ts286zy

In the Whitefeather hut, Quanah is about to remember, why he got married, too. He relaxed on the bed with Marala and gave her a romantic kiss.

"I want to do woo hoo", said Quanah.
And what Quanah wants, Quanah gets

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_fa90543d_zps6kczm6z5

Windows without glass or curtains, don't provide much privacy, but Quanah and Marala were too busy to think about that.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_7a905332_zpsutqh9nrl

"I'm grateful to my father everyday of my life, for choosing you to be my husband", Marala told Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_7a905318_zpsyrzorrcx

"You know I didn't want to ever get married.  But it was expected, so I'm glad it was you", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_1a9054eb_zpsoungdidv

Hita  ran to her and Sohan's hut. "I have Quanah's baby in my belly, but I want him, too!", she cried.

A few days later at the Gathering Place, the childern were doing their lessons.  Nachik was finding them easier to do, since he had had his last birthday.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_9a91dd6a_zpsuh38m0kv
His sister Hala was also no longer struggling with her lessons

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_da91ded9_zps6qjobowr
Shardul still found them difficult, but was improving a little everyday

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_ba91dde0_zpsfwjgiqyp
Chandar still saw no reason for doing them, but did anyway, because it was expected of him.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_9a92ce33_zpstkggdvxw
Samir no longer struggled, in fact it came easy to her now.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_1a8cb15a_zpsryowk7lg
Her older brother, Balik still struggled to do them.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_ba91e272_zpsh0e0wve5
After the childern had finished with their lessons, Samir played with her stuffed arangutan.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_fa91e3b4_zpseebaahzy
When Chandar came over and tried to give her a friendly hug, she told him no.  

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_9a91e46d_zpsogqmvw0f
"Why not!", he hollowed.  "I'm promised to Nachik now", she told him.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_da91e435_zpsbbrwcrht
Shardul grabbed his little brother and gave him a noogie
"Ow, you just wait.  I'll be as big as you one day", said Chandar.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_9a91e72e_zpso8qguwfx
"Why don't you pick on somebody your own size", said Hala, tickling Shardul.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_9a91e756_zpsj9ogxllg
"What, like you?", he laughed

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_1a91e8f8_zpsqrbjfklm
Then he gave her a romantic hug.
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_fa91f1b9_zpsj0xnzalm
Across the room, Hita started screaming, "Ow, it hurts!"
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_9a91f076_zpsfn6yuv2j
Hita delivered a beautiful baby boy. "We have a son!", she said.  
The Hunter Family's first-born son was named Sundar, which means beautiful.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_5a921df2_zps2nkvu4no
"Congratulations, you did it!  You have a son", Quanah told Sohan, giving him a thumbs up.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_da91f9f2_zpsjtdeeja4
"Thank you my friend", Sohan whispered, as he gave Quanah a friendly hug.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_da91fa66_zpse3weg5ez
Hita stood in front of Quanuah holding the baby.  Go ahead, give Sohan his son", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers! Chapter 9

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_da984429_zpsybjkz0er

At River's Edge Village, childern grow up, babies are born and life continues as usual.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_7a95ad3f_zpsgjf1bezt

Lali Fisher was cuddling Sundar Hunter, the newest member of the village.  "He's such a beautiful baby", she told Hita, "You and Sohan should have more childern".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_ba95a9b0_zpsrq5q49js

"Yes, I'd love to have many more, just like him", said Hita.   Lali handed the baby to Hita.  "I better go see what my own two childern are doing", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_3a984f7a_zps9iynh6om

Then Hita held Sundar, so Sohan could talk to the baby.  "Sohan is such a wonderful, loving father .  "I should be satisfied, but he's just not what I want", she thought to herself.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_ba95c45f_zpsyvkorkq6

One who doesn't have Hita's problem, is Hala Fisher.  She is promised to the one she loves .

and will marry Shardul Whitefeather, after she has her next birthday

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_7a95c96b_zpsqg5o7loy

For now, they have all the time in the world, to be together

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_5a95bacc_zpsdqait3jx

With it being such a nice day, Marala and Quanah were  relaxing together  in the large tub of  warm water.

She was staring at her husband.

"Why are you staring?", he asked, "Is there something wrong?"

"No, I was just thinking how beautiful you are and how lucky I am to have you", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_fa95baab_zpsclyiztu5

"Marala, if I ever do anything to displease you, let me know, alright?". he said

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_da95ba86_zpsfhvch1lf

"Yes, I will", she told him. "But, for now, I think it's better to keep my suspicions to myself", she thought.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_ba95cb8d_zpspldzwvst

After supper that night, Marala baked a birthday cake for their youngest son Chandar.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_9a95ccf8_zpsuai4lmgf

He came to his cake, blew out the candles.and grew up . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_3a95d6b5_zpsrwy827mf

Into a goodlooking teenager

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_da95d02f_zpsyxtdmznm

Chandar asked Shardul to play Punch U - Punch Me.  "Come 'mon.  Let's see how tough you are now", teased Chandar.  

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_fa9836a8_zpse190vshu

"I bet I can still beat you", said Shardul.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_7a913111_da8f0532_zps5nv5zlxj
On Monday morning, another week of reading, writing and arithmetic has began for the childern of River's Edge
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_fa97e735_zps4q3u5phx
Miss Molly O'Shay, the new teacher, sit at her desk and observed her students, as they practiced their penmanship lines.  Molly was pleased to see two new students this morning.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_5a959c33_zpscr0u38uo

There was a new, blonde haired boy named Horace Fletcher.  His family had just moved to River's Edge this past Saturday

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_7a959ccf_zpsalsiz8lz

And a cute, dark-haired girl who was Horace's little sister Laura.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_7a97ebae_zpsggzwvshk

At three o'clock, Molly dismissed the students and they all headed for home.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_3a97eacb_zpsj0funke3

Everything was falling into place for Molly.  She had moved into the Ellis' house this past Saturday.  She had spent most of the day Sunday, getting to know the family.  Now that her personal life was taken care of, she wanted to start on her plans for the school.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_ba978a49_zps2bo4plnm

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_fa9761dc_zps8d4axyzi

Just down the road, at the General Store, Jack saw Quanah, and asked, "Do you still have those horses for sale?"  "Yes", said Quanah.
"Good, 'cause I want to buy one", said Jack, "Do you happen to have a palamino?"
"Yes, I have a mare", answered Quanah. "Good, I want her", said Jack.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_3a9788e3_zpsf8bqikze

"Hello, I'm Molly O'Shay, the new school teacher", said Molly, "May I ask you a question?"
"Yes", said Quanah. "If it can be arranged, would the childern in your village like to attend the public school, here in River's Edge?"

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_1a97895a_zpsedv2xssp

"If you can get permission from one of your chiefs, we will discuss it", he said.

Molly was pleased with Quanah's answer.  He hadn't said no, like she was afraid he might.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_5a97883a_zpstcxgbyzi

"Miss O'Shay, I'd be glad to walk you home", said Edward  "Thank you, Mr. Sinclair, but I can get there alright on my own", said Molly

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_ba976312_zpsztwndk8q

"When are you going to bring that mare over to my place?", Jack asked Quanah when he saw himoutside.
"Will this coming Saturday afternoon be alright?", asked Quanah.

"That'll be fine", said Jack, "I'll give you cash on delivery".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_7a97b883_zpsnzyoge6z

"Which one of the horses did you sell?", asked Santosh.
"He wanted the palamino", said Quanah

Blood Brothers!  Chapter 10

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_ba97d706_zpsmhxbu0p7

On Saturday afternoon, over at the Ellis Place

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_5a97d138_zpsl0jo3qsc

Patience and Charity were in their bedroom gossiping and playing, as teenage girls had a tendency to do, even in the 1860's.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_1a97c6d5_zpsubm1x6u2

Chandar and Shardul came with their father to deliver the palamino.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_9a97c6a2_zpsqfokktvg

"You wait here with the horse, while I talk to Mr. Ellis", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_fa97d2eb_zpsij8ggflh

"Where's the horse?", asked Jack.
"My sons will bring it around, after you pay me", said Quanah.

"Well, I don't doubt she's a beauty, but I would like to see her, before I give you the cash", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_da97c865_zpstdqtbnr7

In the meantime, "Look", whispered Chandar. "What is it?", asked Shardul.

"There's two white girls and they ain't wearing nothing but their underwear", said Chandar.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_fa97c955_zpsbh6olwqt

"I don't think we should be looking at them", said Shardul, turning away from the window.

"That one with the yellow hair, is the most beautiful girl, I ever seen", said Chandar.
"Come away from the window, before she sees you", said Shardul, "She don't want nothing to do with you".
Then they heard their father call, "Boys, bring the horse around!"

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_da97d246_zpsjluhdhmg

"These are my sons", Quanah told Jack, introducing Shardul and Chandar.

"Do you boys go to school?", asked Jack.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_fa97d25e_zpsowro3bna

"We have our own school in the village", answered Chandar.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_da97cbad_zpslkhq49rz

"The horse is a beauty and worth every cent you're asking", said Jack,"It was a pleasure doing business with you.  I hope we can be friends."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_7a97f0bc_zpspwlzjwoo

"Father, do you think Mr. Ellis means what he said?", asked Chandar.
"Just because the words came out of his mouth, don't make them true", answered Quanah, "They all lie."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_9a97f22e_zpswqzhqpf0

"Oh may goodness, look at them!", said Patience, staring out the window.
"Who do you suppose they are?", asked Charity.

"I don't know, but I'd give anything to meet them", said Patience.

"You know, Mother and Father would never approve", said Charity.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_da9821db_zps9ldyr5qb

The girls were watching Shardul and Chandar playing Punch U - Punch Me, in front of their house.

"Do you think that's the only clothes they have?", asked Patience.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a959568_fa97f1a6_zps7cortout

Patience and Charity were whispering and giggling about the two Indian boys, as Shardul and Chandar were leaving with their father, to return to the village.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_1a9a7bf9_zps5ljrp1vp

Around the back of the house, Jack was going to ride on the Palamino, he bought from the Indians. "Jack, do you even remember how to ride?", laughed Hope.
"Yes, of course", he said, "That's not something you forget, once you learn."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_da9a7d1f_zpslhqwgaxm

Jack rode around for a bit, then returned home.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_da9a7f3a_zpst7rtap2x

When he got off the horse, he saw Hope coming toward him. She was dressed in a riding outfit. "Now what in the devil, did she think she was going to do?", he thought to himself.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_9a9a7f4a_zpsiqnrtppz

"Why are you dressed in those clothes?", asked Jack.
" What do you think? I'm going horseback riding.  "I was quite an accomplished equestrian in my youth", said Hope.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_ba9a8001_zpsgrrvu3b2

"Would you like me to help you get on?", asked Jack.

"I'm perfectly capable of doing it by myself, Jack", she laughed.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_5a9a80f2_zpsvplaaxf6

"See, I told you I'd be fine, she said, from atop the horse".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_1a9a8131_zpsslvsbnqp

Jack watched until Hope was out of sight.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_9a9a80d7_zpsq5vyguum

"It looks like so much fun", said Charity.
"I wish we could ride", said Patience.

"When can we learn to ride, Father?", asked Charity.
"I think y'all will have to wait until you're older.  Horseback riding isn't something the doctors recommend for young single ladies", he explained.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_1a9d62c6_zpsjpt5i1ng

"Oh no!", screamed Charity and Patience in unison, as they watched their mother falling from atop the horse.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_1a9c699c_zpsn2popho8

Jack ran to Hope, who was lying on the ground.  He picked her up in his arms and carried her into the house.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_ba9a872f_zps23kih56s

Jack gently layed Hope on the sofa.
"I sent Waylon (the gardener) to fetch Dr. Warner", said Molly.
"Thank you, Molly. Please help me get my wife ready for the doctor, before he arrives", said Jack.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_1a9c699c_zpsn2popho8

Jack carried Hope into the bedroom. Molly helped him change her into a nightgown and put her in bed.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_1a9a8b91_zps9pq4ccrx

He ran outside when the doctor arrived, "My wife fell off a horse", he said.

"I'll examine her, then tell you what I think", said Dr. Warner.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_ba9e48a5_zpsufxnv4sz

Doctor Warner came into the bedroom and opened his medical bag, then went about examining his patient.

"Dr. Warner, please tell me the truth. How bad am I injured? Why am I unable to move my legs?", Hope asked.
"Well, it's pretty bad right now, but after the swelling around your spinal cord goes down, I'll know more", he answered. "I'm sorry, Mrs. Ellis. I wish there was more I could do", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_1a9e4c97_zpstb0kcvam

"How bad is my wife's injury?", Jack asked the doctor.

"Your wife needs complete bedrest for the next couple of months", said the doctor, "I advise hiring someone with nursing training, to help with her care. I know someone who can do it, but she's not cheap."
"That's fine. My wife's health is more important than the money", said Jack.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_da9d6893_zpstuidrjqg

"Molly, will you please see Dr. Warner out, while I talk to my daughters", said Jack.
"Yes, of course", said Molly.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_fa9ac4cc_zpsbsj9oaca

"Girls, your mother is going to have to stay in bed for the next couple of months, just until she's all well", said Jack, trying to shield Patience and Charity from the bitter truth.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_7a9aa9e2_zpsh9obhatq

"You seem to be a capable, level headed woman", the doctor told Molly, "How do you do pay for your keep in this well-to-do household?"

"I'm a teacher, Dr. Warner, "I teach at the River's Edge schoolhouse". said Molly.

"Well, Molly, my friends call me Hayden", he said, "And since I plan on us being friends, call me Hayden."

"Alright, Hayden", she said.

He was kinda bossy, but she did like him.

Blood Brothers!  Chapter 11

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_5a9d2084_zps6wueoqp1

The next day, over at the General Store .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_1a9d114d_zpsbixithsi

Waylon Fairchild, the Ellis' gardener, was telling Edward, about having to go fetch the doctor yesterday for Mrs. Ellis, after her accident.
"I haven't seen my sister in awhile, I reckon I better go over there this afternoon and see how she's doing", said Edward.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_7a9d153d_zpslmzkb9no

Jan Tellerman from the ladies missionary group asked Kobi Tellerman to give a talk at their next meeting.  "The ladies would be so interested in hearing about your adventures as an Indian scout", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_ba9d1e8a_zpstdvpomw8

Kaylynn, a local maid, was chatting with Remington, the Ellis' maid, about.  "When I went to work  this morning, Mrs. Ellis was flat on her back in bed.  She said she had to stay like that for a couple of months", said Remington.
"Aw, poor woman", said Kaylynn

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_ba9d1ee1_zps7fudvmet

When Molly finished at the schoolhouse for the day, she stopped by the General Store.

"Waylon told me about Hope's accident.  How's she doing?", asked Edward.
"The doctor said she needs complete bedrest for a couple of months, then he'll be able to tell more about her injury", said Molly.
"Tell her, I'll be over tonight, after I close up here", said Edward.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_7a9d1f89_zpsri1yrfab

When Molly saw Quanah Whitefeather, she went over to him.

"My chiefs gave their permission for your childern to come to River's Edge school", Molly told him.
"I will bring it up at the next council meeting", he said, "We will have to vote on it."

"I hope your council approves it", said Molly, "I look forward to teaching your childern".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_5a9e08a9_zps1qgs7lwp

"Are you ready to go back to the village?", asked Santosh.
"Yes, I'm ready", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_3a99e3f3_zpsddk70at6

"What did that red-haired woman have to say to you?", asked Santosh.
"She's the teacher at the white people's school.  She wants our childern to attend their school", said Quanah.

"Do you think they should?", asked Santosh.
"Maybe, we'll have to discuss it at the next meeting", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_5a9d782a_zpsfdgxlxht

The two friends soon arrived back at the village .

"I'll call a meeting tonight after Waya's daughter's birthday party", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_da9d7161_zpsdbvgdjdo

Sohan called Quanah over, "Quanah, I still have a problem with Hita.  I thought having a baby, would satisfy her", he said, "But now she wants a little brother or sister for Sundar."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_5a9ead2f_zpsoujx3p5o

"NO! I'm not giving her another baby!", Quanah howled.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_3a9ead70_zpspytz53ni

"Please, Quanah.  She says if you don't, she'll tell what we did", said Sohan.
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_1a9ead3a_zpsbpipe3ny

"You tell your wife, my answer is NO!", growled Quanah, "And don't you dare bring it up at the meeting tonight!"

Then Quanah angrily walked away.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_5a9acc10_zps5hlnio5z

In Sohan's hut, Hita had just finished bathing and feeding Sundar.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_7a9acc5c_zpsrgzsgjn3

She placed him in his crib for his afternoon nap.  "Have a nice nap, my precious", she told the infant, "It won't be long, before you have a little brother or sister, just as beautiful as you."

After Sundar fell asleep, she went over to the Gathering Place.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_9a9ad447_zpst735hluq

On the other side of the lot, Shardul and Hala were relaxing in the large tub of warm water.

"Shardul, are you pleased that I'm the one your father choose for you?", she asked.
"Yes, of course, why do you ask such a silly question?", he said.
"I was just wondering, that's all", said Hala.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_fa9ad4ca_zpslk7cxs2z

Then Chandar jumped in thr tub.

"Did I interrupt something important, you was doing?", he asked jokingly.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_1a9ad572_zpsftjtvzv5

"No, we won't doing nothing important", answered Shardul.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_7a9c2e86_zpsysgdjik3

Hala heard what Shardul told Chandar.   She got mad.and jumped of the tub.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_1a9b0666_zpsnbqcdacy

A little later, when Shardul was on his way to the gathering place, he ran into Nachik.  For some reason, these two have hated each other, since they were childern.

"Get out of my way!", growled Shardul.
"No, make me", said Nachik.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_fa9afa8a_zpsjiuhge7y

Shardul attacked Nachik. abd they fought tooth and nail. When the dust had cleared, Shardul had won.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_1a9b05f7_zpsszlthpam

"Shardul, if you will stop fighting with my brother, I'll forgive you", said Hala.  
"Forgive me for what?", he asked.
"For saying what we were doing in the tub, wasn't important", said Hala, "We don't have to do it anymore, you know."

Blood Brothers!   Untitled_zpspbbcapw5

"Let's call a truce", said Shardul, knowing Hala meant what she said.
"Alright, I agree", said Nachik, but wasn't sure whether to believe Shardul or not.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_1a9c26fc_zps9znlc9wy

Later in The Gathering Place, when it was time, Samir came to her birthday cake and blew out the candles.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_1a9c2799_zpswbnmzo6g

And started growing up.

Blood Brothers!   Untitled_zps1a4k6a1r

Samir grew up into a pretty teenager.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_3a9c2a2c_zpsc5aflajj

"You didn't grow up too ugly", teased Chandar.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_3a9c2ad5_zpsuqak1gif

"A lot betterlooking than you", she said, tickling him.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_da9c2a47_zpscsvkqg8z

"I better go over there with Nachik.  He wants me to play a game of chess", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_ba9d7e24_zps9etucdkb

Out in the barn later that night . . . "I called this meeting, so we can discuss, whether the childern of the village, should attend the public school in town or not?", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_9a9d7d24_zpstlsqjyo8

"Who said they could go?", growled Waya, "We don't want any trouble!"

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_7a9d7dc2_zpse9gui40y

"The school teacher got the approval from her chiefs and she asked Quanah, if our childern could come", explained Santosh.
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_1a9d7d42_zps01olbmru

"The childern are the future of our village.  We built it, so we could live on our own land and be free.   If they aren't educated in the white man's way, they won't know how to keep themselves and their childern free. I think they should be allowed to attend, but if there's any sign of trouble, we should pull them out immediately", said Sohan.
"Yes, I agree", said Waya.  "I agree", said Santosh.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_da9d7d89_zps8g5hol4v
"So, we all agree?", asked Quanah
"Yes, we all agreed!", growled Santosh, "Weren't you paying attention?"
"Forgive me, I have another problem on my mine", said Quanah.
"If I can help you with your other problem, just ask", said Santosh.
"Thank you, but it's something I have to deal with myself", said Quanah.  

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_3a9c384d_zpsqnywbkxi

Across the lot, Samir was whispering something to Chandar.  Then she hurried back over to the Gathering Place, before Nachik came looking for her.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_5a9c6109_zpsfqvzcxsb

Later that night, Samir checked to see if her brother Balik was asleep.  She didn't think he would settle down tonight.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_da9c389a_zpsjmhyuy2m

Samir ran across the lot toward the barn . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_da9c5931_zpsuf4gtqsz

Where Chandar was waiting for her.  He grabbed her and gave her a hug.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_7a9c5957_zpsltuqpl6r

She smiled, then said, "Please let me go.  "I need to catch my breath."
"I'm sorry, I was just so excited that you came", he said.
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_fa9c56d2_zpspqcz54bx

"Chandar, I think I made a mistake", she said.
"What, by meeting me like this?", he asked

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_3a9c5f04_zpsmvlgnv6w

"No, silly", she said, nuzzeling his neck.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_da9c588e_zpskvxctjmr

"I think something I told my father, made him decide on Nachik", she said.
"What did you tell him?", asked Chandar.
"I told him that you were more pleasing to look at, but Nachik would make a better husband", she said.

"Samir, Nachik will make a better husband, but I will make a better lover", said Chandar.
"I better go.  Balik might wake up", she said

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5a9c13bf_fa9c5841_zpswkw6nqup
Chandar kissed her goodbye and she left to go back to her hut, more confused than before.

Blood Brothers!  Chapter 12

Blood Brothers!   Beowulf_zpsplk5x9bf

At River's Edge Indian Village, it was time for Sundar Hunter's first birthday.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_3aa3de94_zpsbnwfg32d

Sohan, the proud father, brought Sundar to his birthday cake.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_3aa3ded3_zpsclmoe0di

He helped the infant blow out his candles.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_1aa3e77a_zpst4iidfbw

Then Sohan did the baby toss.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_daa3ea0d_zpszqkigs7w

The infant returned to his arms . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_3aa5303c_zpsff0tmrpw

A cute toddler.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_baa5330b_zpsfc92tbgq

Quanah silently watched, as his youngest son grew up.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_5aa3ea6d_zpsqgxxw9qv

Sohan gave his son a family kiss before handing him to Hita.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_3aa3ec30_zpsdumrh11h

Hita looked at Sundar in awe.  She was overjoyed at how much he looked like Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_baa3ebdf_zpsv1nbd3hg

She gave gave him a family kiss. . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_3aa3ec12_zpspomge46i

And cuddled him.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_9aa3ed10_zpsk3pncwdj

Samir offered to put him down for a nap when he got sleepy.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_3aa3ed7a_zpsspyevtrc

She took him over to Sohan and Hita's hut and put him in his crib.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_5aa3ee52_zpsko3pp9rv

When she turned around, Chandar grabbed her and gave her a squeeze.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_daa3ee59_zps4xbg9i1a

"I can hardly breathe when you do that, even though I do enjoy it", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_5aa3ee9e_zps4klrpapv

They looked around and saw Hita.

"Did I interrupt something?", she asked.
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_7aa3eecc_zps6oqluyxe

"No, uh . . . Chandar was just leaving", said Samir.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_7aa3eebe_zpsl4glacay

Then Samir was relieved when after Chandar left, Hita gave her a thumbs up!  

"Does that mean, you won't tell on us?", she asked.
"It'll be our little secret", said Hita, "I know exactly how you feel."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_7aa3ef03_zps9exbph3r

When she went outside, Samir saw Chandar in the large tub of warm water with Shardul and Hala.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_7aa3f1be_zpsqqjowdde

She got in the tub and stared over at Chandar.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_1aa3f2b5_zpspbmzwnf6

"Why you staring at me?", he asked.  

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_daa3f1b4_zpsm3mlr1lv

"Don't flatter yourself", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_daa3f0d0_zpspvtjwdev

"It's good you two ain't promised to each ", laughed Shardul.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_1aa3f139_zpslirpz4vp

"You could at least try to be friends even if you don't like each other", said Hala.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_3aa3f1a1_zpslb9pclye

Shardul told Hala, "Come sit with me."  

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_baa3f413_zps2q2qzevs

Then they motioned for Chandar and Samir to "get out"!

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_3aa3f3d6_zpshbo3ajkz

So they could madeout.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_9aa3f445_zpshtvq9bzp

Samir whispered something to Chandar.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_7aa3f264_zpsh2kifzou

"Samir, come here!", called Nachik, who had been watching them.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_7aa3f570_zpsv7qconjd

"Let's get in the tub", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_baa3f5cc_zps2fq6obiq

"Come sit with me", said Nachik.  

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_baa3f604_zpsatl4dm9s

Chandar took off running . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_9aa3f658_zpszuesuohc

It was hard seeing Samir with Nachik, but he knew he'd have to learn to accept it and be satisfied with the the moments when she belonged to him.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_7aa3f420_zpsv9cd5rbr

Chandar's mother had learned to do that very thing, even though she's the one Quanah married.  At times like this, she could almost forget about the other girls and women he'd had.  She knew, if Quanah had had a choice, he would never had married.   But he was a good Comanche brave and had done what his father wanted.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_baa4ce8c_zpscqu4r1fb

Her suspicions about Sohan and Hita's son were even stronger now.  "She couldn't be the only one in the village, who noticed Sundar's resemblance to Quanah.   But why would Quanah do woo hoo with Hita, when he obviously hated her?", she thought to herself.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_baa4ce8c_zpscqu4r1fb

"Where you going?", asked Quanah, awakened from his nap.
"It was nice watching you sleep, but I got things to do", she joked.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_9aa4d14f_zpsopqmzfzo

"Thank you for putting up with me", he said, giving her a hug, "I'm going into town, but I won't be long."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_9aa3ff6d_zps6y4lnjzj

It was the end of another day at the schoolhouse in River's Edge.  The school teacher, Molly O'Shay was writing in her diary.  When she looked up she saw Quanah watching her.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_3aa3ffe3_zpsl4bzibwk

"We voted and decided our childern will be allowed to come to your school", he said.

"Good, how many childern are there?", asked Molly
"There's four boys and two girls", said Quanah.
"School starts at nine o'clock every morning, Monday thru Friday", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_faa40071_zpsqiel4ft6

"They'll be here", he said.
"I'll be looking forward to meeting them", said Molly, "I'm glad you decided to let them come."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_1aa4009a_zpssduh7ngd

"Goodbye, teacher", said Quanah.

"Goodbye, Mr. Whitefeather", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_baa4027b_zpslgirrcd2

Quanah got on his horse and rode away.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_faa40a5b_zps9xyasdit

He stopped in front of the General Store.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_7aa4065b_zpsjf3oetn9

Quanah saw the store owner outside sweeping the porch.  

"Is there anything I can help you with today?", asked Edward.
"Yes, I want school clothes for four teenage boys and two teenage girls", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_baa4070e_zpsnq3k3ldq

"I have some nice flannel shirts and some of them new twilled cotton trousers for the boys.  They're made out of some new fangled cloth that some German immigrant originally intended to use for tents.  I also got some nice dresses for the girls.  They ain't nothing fancey, but I think they'll do for school.  If you want any fancier ones, you'll have to order them from the catalogue", said Edward.

In 1850, Levi Strauss, a 24 year old German immigrant started manufacturing heavyweight trousers made from twilled cotton cloth known in France as "genes".  He intended to make tents for the miners, but finding no market, he decided to make pants.  He ended up making a fortune, as well as history. The Levi trademark pocket stitching and label began to be used in 1873.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_faa407b2_zpshfbfftal

"These will do just for now", said Quanah, "I'll be back later to get some of the trousers for myself and the other men in the village".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_7aa43720_zpsvxtsh4sg

The next morning at the village, the childern were dressed in their new clothes and were excited about going to the white man's school.  Shardul and Chandar were playing Punch Me - Punch U.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_baa42ae7_zpspmja2zyw

"You look prety in that red dress", Shardul told Hala.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_faa43e51_zpskg0yzhuc

"You look very handsome in ah . . . clothes", she laughed.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_daa42b84_zpsenm6ga7a

Samir asked Chandar to play "Red Hands".  When she won, he said, "Not fair, I wasn't ready".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_7aa42ba6_zpsgb4u9r3k

"You just don't want to admit a girl beat you", she joked, tickling him.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_7aa42bc0_zpsrfq9sfwk

"But I have to admit, you certainly look handsome in those white man's clothes", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_baa43e17_zpsoagromnw

Nachik watched Samir and Chandar.  She was promised to him, but seemed to spend most of her  time playing with Chandar.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_3aa4379f_zps98se3a2e

Nachik went over to talk with her, "Samir, you look pretty in that blue dress", he said.  "Thank you, you look nice, too", she told him.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_7aa43720_zpsvxtsh4sg

Balik asked Shardul to play Punch Me - Punch U.  "Come 'mon, hit harder!", said Balik.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_1aa512ed_zpsed9ozds4

"Maybe he can't hit no harder than that!", said Nachik

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_baa437cb_zpsl70s4pgk

"Take it back!", growled Shardul.  "Who's gonna make me?", asked Nachik.  "ME!", growled Shardul.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_3aa47ce1_zpsuya2jsix

"Shardul, you promised not to fight Nachik anymore", said Hala.  "He started it", said Shardul.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_daa43e65_zpsllmue3pk

"Hala, I'm always gonna stand up for myself, no matter what", he said.  "Shardul, I don't know what I'm going to do with you", she laughed.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_faa42865_zpshvdcvnos

"It's eight-thirty, you should be on your way", Quanah told them.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_faa4880f_zps5206lrar

Balik, Samir and Chandar walked together.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_7aa488c0_zpsuabthasw

Nachik walked with Hala.  "I appreciate what you did", he said.
"You know he's got a bad temper", said Hala, "You should know not to make him mad."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_1aa488fe_zps4dijwwz4

Shardul walked by himself, trying to calm down before he got to school.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_faa68275_zpsfczrltqr

At River's Edge Schoolhouse, the day for a big change had arrived.  The teacher, Miss Molly O'Shay sit at her desk and watched her students, as they came into the classroom.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_daa6ae34_zpswnlzqpvo

Charity Ellis was chatting with Horace Fletcher.  "I think these two are sweet on each other", Molly thought to herself, "They do make a cute couple and they both come from good families."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_9aa69d20_zpsmtclqhzf

Two of the Comanche boys were playing Punch U - Punch Me.  She was pleased to see they were dressed in appropiate school clothes.  The thought had crossed her mind that they might show up  half-naked, in their Indian clothing.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_3aa6a0fa_zpssfcqnq38

Patience and Charity were whispering and giggling to each other about something.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_9aa6a04f_zpsicwbqudl

One of the boys who was playing Punch U - Punch Me, asked the sisters, "Was you talking about us?"
"No, we have more important things to discuss than you", said Patience, sarcasticly.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_7aa6af5e_zpsk2hedbzw

"Students, when I call your name, say here", said Molly.  She went down the list of students.  The only one of her original students who hadn't returned was Tosha Go, but being that she was a townie, Molly wasn't able to check on her.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_9aa68638_zps8kxxx25g

There was six new Indian students.  Hala Fisher, a pretty teenager with long, straight black hair . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_7aa686cb_zpsegj9v90m

Samir Sweeney, a pretty teenager also with long, straight black hair. . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_3aa687b8_zpsw8phfzfr

Balik Sweeney, a handsome teenager with his black hair, pulled up into a half-way ponytail . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_9aa686b9_zpsyd8epona

Chandar Whitefeather, a handsome teenager with black hair hanging to just below his shoulders . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_3aa6867b_zpss57x5byf

Nachik Fisher, a rather thin teenager, with black hair, which was cut shorter than the others . . .
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_daa68688_zps0zemcapv

And Shardul Whitefeather, a handsome teenager with long, straight black hair.  Unlike the others, he was wearing his traditional headband.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_baa68946_zpsjery4agh

While the students were finishings their assignments, Molly prepared salami sandwiches for the whole class. She was ahead of her time, believing that the childern would learn better on a full stomach. As each student finished their assignments, they grabbed a plate.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_9aa69b56_zpsifnpklt3

After putting away his plate after eating, Chandar was walking back to his seat.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_3aa69b23_zpsdsdqcb5l

Patience was coming toward him to get herself a sandwich.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_7aa69b72_zps1euqc7nn

Chandar grabbed her and gave her a noogie!

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_7aa69b92_zpsazdiyqhb

"Why did you do that?", she asked.  "Cause I wanted to", he answered.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_faa68275_zpsfczrltqr

"Students, it's time for recess", said Molly.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_daa6a5fc_zpsowhcnfzq

Patience came out into the school yard.and was chatting with her sister Charity's crush, Horace.. When Charity saw them, she had a mad look on her face.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_7aa6a476_zps7np3dl9h

After Patience left, Charity asked Horance to play Red Hands.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_1aa6a892_zpstgpmxdpv

"Would you like to play a game of darts?", Patience asked Chandar.   "Sure, if you don't mind getting beat", he said.  "I wouldn't be so sure of that", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_7aa6a312_zpsc05qzwdb

Patience took her turn first.  She recorded her score with the chalk.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_7aa6a2b0_zpshpnkc1lm

Then it was Chandar's turn.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_3aa6a568_zpsjmnhdrl2

"Patience, look!", he called, pointing up at the sky.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_9aa6a577_zpsmzaxe2mn

When she turned to look up, Chandar cheated.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_daa6a589_zpszojm5laf

"How did you do that?", she asked surprised.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_9aa6abbe_zpsagisclyl

"I cheated", he admitted.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_5aa6a9a5_zpsqy64x8ku

"No wonder you were so sure of beating me", she teased.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_baa6b07e_zpsmennmmz7

At three o'clock, school ended for the day and the childern headed for home.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_faa6affb_zps8bl9gtzx

"Well, there they go back to their village", said Patience.  Do you think they'll come back tomorrow?", asked Charity.
"I centainy hope so", said Patience..

Over at the Ellis Place, the doctor has come to check on Hope's condition.  She was thrown from a horse and as a result is unable to move her legs. Dr. Hayden Warner, the local general practitioner had finished his examination. "Well, what's the verdict doctor?", asked Hope. "It's not as bad as it was, the swelling has gone down considerably. You do have some slight movement in your toes now.  I believe after all the swelling is gone and with lots of therapy, you will be able to walk again", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_3aa7b55c_zpslc7zrqic

"Mrs. Ellis, the doctor will tell me what exercises you need and we can start them, as soon as  you're ready", said Olivia.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_5aa7b5a4_zpshhsmcxev

"Thank you, Olivia.  And Olivia, please call me Hope.  Mrs. Ellis sounds so formal".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_5aa7b5e7_zps4rffnsn5

"Your wife's condition is still serious, but there is a slight improvement ", said the doctor, "The swelling has gone down considerably and she's able to move her toes."

"So, how long do you think it will be before she's completely recovered?", asked Jack.
"With the right therapy, I'd say maybe less than six months", said the doctor.

When his daughters came home from school, Jack told them what the doctor had said. "Now y'all tell me, how was school today?", he asked.

"The childern from the Indian village started today", said Patience, "They're really nice, not at all dirty and smelly, like Mother said".
"Well, you know your mother has a tendency to exaggerate", said Jack.

"You mean to tell things that aren't true?", laughed Charity.
"Well yes, that too", said Jack.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_faa7bc1d_zpshjkrb3ov

"When I saw you chatting with Horace, do you believe I was jealous", laughed Charity.
"Oh, I can't believe you thought I liked him", laughed Patience, "You should know I like dark haired boys."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_9aa7bc2a_zpss3ifk1pn

"I wonder if Chandar would like me better, if I let my hair hang down loose like the Indian girls", said Patience.
"I don't know, but you could see how it looks", said Charity.
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_daa7be3b_zpsmkzhwweq

Patience went to the mirror and changed her hair to a long, straight style.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_1aa7bea2_zpss6oairz2

"Well, what do you think?", she asked Charity. "It reminds me of corn silk", said Charity, "It is beautiful." 
"Do you think he will notice?", said Patience.
"Yes, how can he not notice something so beautiful", said Charity.
"Thank you", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_baa7c7ff_zpsgyoyu3nh

Down the road, at the Indian Village, Hala and Samir were watching . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_1aa7c5c7_zpswnhqlwjh

Shardul and Chandar wrestling.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_7aa7c826_zpsdpuq5po7

"I think that girl with the yellow hair likes Chandar", said Hala.
"You should have seen the look she gave me, when she saw me chatting  with him", said Samir, "Can you imagine what she would do, if she knew we . . . ah."  "If you what?", asked Hala. "Uh, never mind.  Here comes your brother", said Samir.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_faa7c852_zpsxrkcidag

"I heard my name, were you talking about me?", asked Nachik.
"Yes, I was just saying, I hope you don't like the girls at school more than me", she lied.  "Samir, you're promised to me.  Nothing or nobody can ever change that", said Nachik.
While Samir has a problem, pretending to be happy with Nachik . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_daa7cdcd_zpsgodk5fi3

Quanah has a bigger problem.  When he went out to the barn to check on the horses, he heard someone call his name.  When he turned around Hita tried to give him a hug.  "No, go away!", he said. "Please, I just want to feel your arms around me again", she begged.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_5aa7ce66_zpsuszxxupj

"Quanah, that night must have meant something to you", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_9aa7ce2c_zpstw6sif2w

"It was the worst night of my life!", he howled.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_9aa7ce43_zpsux1cvhgh

"But it was the night you put our beautiful son in my belly", said Hita.
Then a female voice called out, "Quanah!".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_baa7d13c_zpsa41tvu1v

"How could you do such a thing!", screamed Marala.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_1aa7cef8_zps3zghdxua

"You don't understand, I had to do it.  Hita wanted a baby so much, that it was making her crazy.  Sohan was unable to give her one, so he begged me to do it", he explained.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_faa7cf28_zpscas26hqm

"Go away!  Leave us alone", he told Hita, who was crying uncontrollably.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_faa7d114_zpsvfooi8s1

"I don't want to believe you did this", said Marala.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_3aa7d072_zpscm1eokw4

"Whether you want to believe it or not . . .  it's your problem, not mine", he said..

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_baa81e07_zpsbxbojdxz

Then he walked out of the barn. Now that Marala knew the truth, Quanah felt relieved.  It would only be a matter of time, before she   forgave him

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_7aa7d7e9_zpstq6xh9su

He saw Santosh coming across the yard and called him over.  "Marala knows about me and Hita", said Quanah. "But how?", he asked. "She heard Hita and me arguring about it in the barn", said Quanah.  "What did Marala say?", asked Santosh. "She said she didn't want to believe it, so I walked away", he said. "You should go back and tell her everything", said Santosh.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_daa7d352_zpsgh4fwcjo

Quanah went back into the barn.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_1aa7d4c8_zpsm3oeyvid

He saw Marala laying on the haystack.  He lay beside her, then said, "Marala, I want to explain this thing with Hita to you".

"There's nothing to explain", she said, "What's done is done".

"Marala, Hita wanted a baby so much, that she was going crazy.  You remember how she was", he said, "Sohan was unable to give her one, so he asked me to do it."

"You didn't have to do it, just because he asked", she said.

"He asked me at a council meeting and we voted.  It was decided that I should give them a baby", said Quanah.
"You mean, four grown men, who should have known better, agreed to do something so stupid?", she asked.
"It made sense at the time", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_daa7d569_zps4omjfir4

"Marala, please forgive me", said Quanah, trying to kiss her.  "Don't ever touch me again!", she screamed.
"But, you're my wife", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_baa67e2a_1aa7d636_zpsm8upcwvg
"That's your problem, not mine", she said, walking out of the barn.

Blood Brothers!  Chapter 15

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_5aa9f1b9_zpsp9nvglur

It was just another day at River's Edge schoolhouse.   It had been two weeks now, since the Indian childern had come to the "white man's school".  Miss Molly O'Shay, the teacher, was pleased at how well all her students had adjusted to one another.  It just goes to show you, childern are childern, no matter what their culture.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_faa9c29f_zpscg9ax0en

She was finally able to tell the Indian childern apart, remember their names and had learned a little about their families.  Balik Sweeney was the youngest of the four boys and was the son of Waya and Mali Sweeney.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_1aa9c54b_zpsiyrzwfcv

Balik's younger sister, Samir was the youngest girl, as well as the youngest of the group.  She was "promised" to Nachik Fisher, which Molly understood to mean that they were to be married when they both became adults.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_daa9c4bf_zpsbadahcld

Nachik Fisher, son of Santosh and Lali Fisher,  and . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_3aa9c4ec_zpsvaxazv1f

His twin sister, Hala were the oldest of the group.  Hala was promised to Shardul Whitefeather.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_daa9c270_zpsfszdjz2z

Shardul was only a few hours younger than the twins.  He was the oldest son of Quanah and Marala Whitefeather.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_9aa9c2a6_zps923ioath

Shardul's younger brother, Chandar was a day or so older than Samir.  He wasn't promised to anyone yet, but by the way Samir acted, you would think he was hers.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_daa9c554_zps4knq2o1a

Ben Cooper, son of Jake and Amanda Cooper lives on a farm, right off the main road.

Ben's sister Sarah is three years his junior.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_3aac0b6e_zpsybvxjwgy

And David Fletcher, who just started school today, is the youngest son

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_baa9c517_zpstnhaeqh9

Horace Fletcher, the oldest son of Tom and Peggy Fletcher, also lives on a farm.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_baa9c2b2_zpsrkhiixhh

Laura Fletcher is Horace's sister, younger by three years.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_baa9c4de_zpsckyeazzk

And then, there's Charity Ellis . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_3aa9c2ae_zps8h4mozvg

And her faternal twin sister Patience.  The girls don't seem to be affected too badly by their mother's accident.  Of course, their overprotective father, hasn't told them how serious her injury is.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_daa9fabe_zpsqyilrfqs

At afternoon recess, Balik and Nachik played Punch U - Punch Me.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_baa9f744_zpseqvyore5

Patience was chatting with Chandar.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_7aa9f792_zpsnryzukl9

Although he looked a little disinterested.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_faa9fc49_zpsx7zodo3h

She asked him to play Red Hands, which got his attention.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_9aaa1b68_zps79oqbrwt

Especially when he won!

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_faa9f6e0_zpssqidfj6w

Horace and Balik had only one disagreement today.  A big improvement since the first day.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_faaa1d65_zpsr5tuwcsa

When school ended for the day, the Indian boys and . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_1aaa1d6e_zps6qkumqxc

The Indian girls left  to go back to the village.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_1aaa1c5c_zpsfljcfq96

The other students walked in the opposite direction to go home.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_daab31b6_zpsngesvz3f

After supper in the fanciest house in River's Edge, (Jack Ellis' father had struck it rich in the California Gold Rush of 1848) Nurse Olivia Warner was reading to Mrs. Ellis.  After her patient fell asleep, Olivia also retired for the night.  Molly had gone to bed earlier. Mr.Ellis joined his wife in slumber.
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_daab2843_zps4peargpz  

Patience and Charity were the only ones still awake in the house.  
"Did Chandar notice your new hairstyle?", asked Charity.
"Yes, he said he liked it", said Patience.
"Well, at least he noticed.  That's the important thing", said Charity.
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_7aab29bf_zps9cg6ngz1
"He's not like any of the boys I've ever known before", said Patience, "I wonder if he even thinks about me once he goes home to his village". Just then, they heard a tapping at the window and someone calling softly, "Patience, come outside".  
Patience got up off the bed and looked out the window.  She was surprised to see Chandar staring back at her.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_7aab2adb_zpspg2wyuyp

"Chandar's out there.  What should I do?", she asked Charity.
"Go out and see what he wants", said Charity, "But be careful that you don't wake up Father".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_9aab2ca6_zpsfivgxddc

Patience went outside.  Chandar was sitting in the swing on the backporch and she sit down beside him.

"Why did you come here uninvited and so late?", she asked.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_9aab2d1e_zpsgfmisqhp
"I was thinking about you and couldn't get to sleep", said Chandar.
"You were thinking about me", she said, barely able to believe her ears.
"You're so different from the girls at my village", he said.
"Is that good or bad", she asked, joking.
"It's definitely good", he answered.
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_baab2f69_zpsenzyanpu

"Chandar, you better go.  We'll be in big trouble, if my father was to wake up and see you", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_daab2fa2_zps8smptgzd

"Goodbye, Chandar.  See you at school tomorrow", she said.
"Goodbye, Patience", he answered.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_3aab30be_zpstecvw3zj

Patience made it back to her bedroom, without waking anyone.  Even Charity was sound asleep.  .Now that Chandar had taken the first step, she knew there would be no turning back in her  relationship with him.

Blood Brothers!  Chapter 16

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faf449ed_7af4944c

Over at the Indian Village . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_7aab3751_zpszbq5sin3

Chandar was coming back from Patience's house.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_9aab38c6_zpsqbgcebiy

"Where have you been?", asked Samir.
"I couldn't get to sleep, so I took a walk", he answered.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_1aab3976_zpsozkze2eb

"Follow me", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_faab3bc4_zpsmpcsdbo8

"Why are you out so late?", asked Chandar.
"I woke up and wanted to see you before any of the others got up", said Samir.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_daab3c72_zps1yszqhmx

At daybreak, Chandar kissed Samir goodbye.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_3aab3e0c_zpshpogdcxg

Since it was Saturday, she could go back to bed and dream about Chandar.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_3aac0eb3_zpsgxop1k6i

Sohan was up early, enjoying "father and son" time with Sundar.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_3aac0dce_zps2pwndstm

Now that the toddler was fed and changed, Sohan put him in the bouncy seat.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_faac0fd8_zpsj1fasrpp

When Hita woke up, she came into the livingroom.  "Sundar is growing up too fast", she said.
"Hita, he's a healthy little boy, that's what he's suppose to do", said Sohan.

"It wouldn't be so bad, if I knew I could have another baby", she said.

"Hita, I asked Quanah and he said NO!  You got to get over this obsession, about wanting another baby", said Sohan.
"I'll try.  I promise", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_daac1fd2_zpsfukc330s

Later that morning, a beautiful teenage Indian girl . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_daac1fe4_zps0jhquhmi

Her little sister . . .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_5aac1ff4_zpsf3nf83ur

And their cousin arrived at the village.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_7aab4012_zps3bwrvjsp

Quanah was the first to see them and went to ask what they wanted.

"My name is Pale Moon and these two little ones are my sister Gentle Fawn and my cousin Little Blue Bird", the girl said, "We are from the Cheyenne Indian Village."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_9aab4036_zpse70rafz8

"Where are your parents?", asked Quanah.  "All our parents got sick and died, along with all the others", she said.  "You must be hungry and tired.   We will feed you and give you a place to rest", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_baab41cc_zpsnvlopwq1

Quanah took the Cheyenne orphans to the gathering place, where they were fed.  Gentle Fawn ate, as if she were starving.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_9aab423d_zps7lnawubf

Little Blue Bird, usually a picky eater, cleaned her plate.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_faab433d_zpsnhv0vrf8

"After you finish your meal, I want to hear about what happened to your people", said Quanah.  

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_1aab41b3_zpsk882sro6

Pale Moon ate in silence, with a far-away look on her face

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_baab4614_zps9agwz1p9

After they had finished eating, Marala  took the two younger girls to her and Quanah's hut.  Gentle Fawn slept in Shardul's bed and Little Bluebird slept in Chandar's.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_daab438c_zpsvnnlfayb

"Thank you, the food was delicious", said Pale Moon, "I'd ready now to tell you what happened."

"About a week ago our village was attacked by the soldiers.  Our parents and almost everyone else were killed.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_faab0c23_zpsjtc7yd09

"Little Bluebird, Gentle Fawn, my mother and I were the only ones who survived.  We left our village and started walking through the woods, in hopes of finding other Cheyenne like us."

"My mother was very weak.  She had just given birth to my little brother before the attack.  We stopped often, so she could rest".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_daab0ab1_zpsvhls6xmn

"She held my cousin Little Bluebird on her lap to comfort her. 'Pale Moon, if I'm unable to continue, you must take care of your sister and cousin', she said. Then she motioned for Gentle Fawn to come over to where she was sitting".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_1aab0bc2_zpsescnxaex

"My mother held my little sister on her lap and tried to comfort her as best she could".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_daab0dd6_zpsw4z9iaky

"When she stood up to continue on our journey, she fell to the ground.  She lay there not moving. My mother died, right there in the clearing."

url=]Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_faab04ff_zpsvhu9tg3e[/url]

"Come, I told Little Bluebird and Gentle Fawn.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_3aab0519_zpstgnl7rmd

"After walking a short distance, I saw your village. Right after that, was when we came here."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_5aab653d_3aab4551_zpsrdkxtdzo

"You must be tired", said Marala, when she returned to the gathering place.  

I'm taking you to my hut temporarily. The men will decide, if you can stay".

Blood Brothers!  Chapter 17

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_7aab4846_zpsrpwgs91p

Over at the Indian village, the men have called an emergency meeting.  The meeting will decide the fate of the three Cheyenne orphans, who showed up at their village that morning.  The men gathered in the barn to discuss the situation and vote on the outcome.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_5aaeced6_zps40boeowe

"I called this emergency meeting because we need to decide what to do with the Cheyenne orphans", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_daaece78_zpsf4nlakr5

"I think we should let them stay!  It seems as if the Great Spirit knows we need wives for our sons and sent these girls to our village", said Santosh.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_faaecda3_zpsqwzjuxmw

"We don't know anything about them", Waya growled!

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_3aaecdaf_zpsdpv4ezjg

"What's there to know?  They're only childern!", growled Sohan.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_9aaecdfd_zps0ivffhnd

"The Cheyenne aren't that much different from us.  They can be taught our ways", said Quanah, "If we send them away, where will they go?  If what happened to them, happened to our childern, wouldn't we want them to be raised by their own kind? It seems as if the Great Spirit is watching out for us.  He sent exactly the number of girls we needed", said Santosh..

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_9aaecdc8_zpsv9n1qqmn

A vote was taken and they all agreed,  "The Cheyenne orphans can stay and become wives for our sons", said Quanah..

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_9aaecd83_zpspra9bgjw

"I was just thinking, Chandar is the oldest of the boys, he should have the teenage girl promised to him.  Don't you agree, Quanah?", asked Sohan.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_baaecde9_zpsuxrhryyp

"Yes, but I don't want to tell him just yet", said Quanah, "They should get to know each other,  before he's told she's going to be his wife."

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_7aaed7c4_zpszbluq6em

Speaking of wives, in Sohan's hut, his wife Hita was struggling to change her toddler son's diaper.  She powdered him good, when she was finally able to get the soiled diaper off.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_7aaed831_zpsplaxd8ql

"You are as subbon as your father, my precious and just as beautiful", she told the toddler.
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_faaecf8f_zpsfbkkwlyj

When Sohan returned, he told her that they had decided, the orphans could stay and would be future wives for their sons. "Can I choose the one that will be promised to Sundar?", she asked.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_faaecfa4_zpssmstrjly

"Of course, whichever one of the younger girls you like the best", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_faaedc3c_zps8jh9e3u9

Over in the gathering place, Chandar was practicing chess.  Pale Moon pulled out a stool and asked to join.  "You might as well", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_9aaedc60_zpsrfq8thrz

"I was one of the best players in my village", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_9aaedc6c_zps6gqnvua6

Chandar gave her a discussed look.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_7aaedc93_zpsnca853ke

Two hours later, Pale Moon was thinking long and hard about her next move.  "You're a pretty good player, too", she said, "I don't see anywhere else I can move.""Then it's a stalemate", he agreed.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_3aaedcf6_zpsejdyixw6

When they got up from the table, Chandar grabbed Pale Moon and gave her a noogie!  "Ouch, that hurt", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_9aaedd15_zpsed7ckoju

"You are the most discussing boy I've ever met", said Pale Moon, then walked out.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_7aaec84f_zpsrqwkbwku

Hita had decided that Little Bluebird was her favorite of the girls.  She had convinced the child to let her "do something" with her hair.  "I don't know who cut your hair before, but they certainly made a mess of it", said Hita.
"I cut it myself", said Little Bluebird.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_faaec9d4_zpsfklzgj8i

"There, I'm finished", said Hita, "That looks much better".  "Thank you", said Little Bluebird.
"You're very welcome.  Now don't go chopping on it again", said Hita.

"I won't. 'cause I'd like to have beautiful long hair like yours", said Little Bluebird, spoken like a perfect future daughter-in-law.

Blood Brothers!  Chapter 18

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_baaf5922_zpspbv81ju3

Monday morning at the River's Edge schoolhouse, Molly was happy to welcome three new students, who had showed up with the others from the village.  There was Pale Moon, a pretty teenager with long black hair.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_5aaf579c_zpssnjrcmus

Her sister Gentle Fawn, a cute child with long black pigtails

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_daaf578e_zpsm25mv5ax

And their cousin, Little Bluebird, a cute child with short black, bobbed hair.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_3ab0ba0b_zpsth8belha

After the usual morning lessons, lunch was served, then the childern went outside for recess.  Little Bluebird played Red Hands with Gentle Fawn.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_1ab0b901_zpsehqfvlsh

Horace was chatting with Charity.  

"Do you think your parents will let me comw calling on you?", he asked.

"I don't know, but I';; ask them", she answered.

Chandar and Patience ait together in the swing.  "I wish you could come over to my house, you know, like a regular gentleman caller", she said, "But I know my parents wouldn't allow it".

"I already knowed that, that's why I came to your window the other night", said Chandar.
"Just because my parents feel that way, doesn't mean I do", she said, "I love when you come again".

Just then Samir came over.

"Chandar, will you play Red Hands with me", she asked, purposely interrupting them.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_9aaf6035_zpsqg2krdev

Chandar stood up and played with her.

When Chandar won, Samir tickled him.

Patience watched, getting madder and madder by the minute.

On the other side of the schoolyard, Horace and Balik were fighting.

I have no idea which one started it.  They've been leading up to this all week.

After the dust had cleared, Balik was the winner.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_3ab0c6ce_zps90urqrah

"Balik, fighting isn't the way to settle your differences with Horace", said Molly.
"Yes mam", said Balik.

"I'm sending a note home to your father, to let him know you've misbehaved today", she said.
"Have you got to?", he asked.
"Yes, I think he should know", said Molly.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_5ab0c770_zpsq6la9ahe

"Horace, fighting isn't the proper way to settle your differences with Balik", said Molly.
"Yes mam, I know", he said.

"I'm sending a note home to your daddy to let him know you misbehaved today", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_1ab01a37_zpshxc7e4uf

"Are you going to ask father if Horace can come calling?", asked Patience.
"Yes, I'm almost an adult, said Charity, "I think it's about time have a gentleman caller".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_faaf5a93_zpshrjqufnr

"Did you girls like school today", asked Samir. "I liked it", said Gentle Fawn. "I liked it, too", said Little Bluebird, "But I don't like these clothes I got to wear".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_3aaf5c02_zpswaazwqks

"It makes me a little sad, knowing this was my last day of school", said Hala.  "Why aren't you coming anymore?", asked Pale Moon. "Tonight is my birthday and I'm becoming an adult", answered Hala.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_baaf5b75_zps34bmcb1g

This is also Nachik and Shardul's last day of school.  Their birthdays are tonight, then they will also be adults.
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_9ab0c7c8_zps6ebhrg7c
Balik was the last to leave for home.  He wasn't in any hurry to give his father the note in his pocket.
 Over at the village, after the childern returned from school, Waya was lecturing Balik about why he shouldn't fight in school.

"That boy has been disagreeable ever since I met him", said Balik, "Today was the last straw".

"Balik, please don't fight anymore.  If you make trouble, they won't allow you and the others to go to their school", said Waya.

"I'm sorry Father, I won't fight again", said Balik.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_9aaef837_fab024e6_zpsfohtg99s

Later that night, it was time for Nachik birthday.  He came to his cake, blew out the candles and

started growing up.

He grew up into an attractive adult.

"Aren't you going to tell me happy birthday?", he asked Samir.

"Yes, of course, happy birthday", she said, giving him a hug.

"Hala, there's something I've been waiting a long time to ask you", he said.

Blood Brothers!  Chapter 19

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_1abf9310_zpsg2yooagu

At the Ellis Place, things are looking up.  Hope Ellis has made remarkable improvement since her accident.  She's able to be up and about, even though it is with a wheelchair.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_dac076e3_zpsodkklt8w

"Mrs. Ellis your back is healing a lot faster than we had expected", said Dr. Warner.

"But how much longer will I have to be confined to this wheelchair?", Hope asked.

"Well, if you keep doing the exercises I recomended, you should be able to walk again in a few months", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_9ac07740_zpsem3b8uzd

"That's wonderful news", she said, "Thank you doctor".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_7ac077eb_zpsq2nho01x

"Hayden, do you really think Mrs. Ellis will make a full recovery", asked Molly.  
"Yes, I believe she will.  Her progress so far, looks promising", he answered

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_dac07861_zpsuuwaktim

"Molly, I'd like to come calling on a regular basis, if that's alright with you", said Hayden.
"I'd like for you to do that", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_7abf939c_zpsck9l0l7z

"Mother, would it be alright with you and Father, if Horace Fletcher came over this coming Saturday afternoon?", asked Charity

"I'll have to discuss it with your father", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_fabf937f_zpsmvo7xbqo

"Jack, do you think it'll be alright if Horace comes calling?", asked Hope.
"Hope, you met Horace's parents when they moved to town, didn't you?", asked Jack.
"Yes, they're a lovely family", she said.

"Well, in that case, I think it will be alright for him to come calling on Charity", said Jack.

"Alright, whatever you think", said Hope

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_3abf948f_zpsvhpsvh4b

Now that that little problem was out of the way, Hope was able to give her full attention to a new romance novel, that had been delivered yesterday

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_3ac0255e_zpshw0cr643

"I can hardly believe Mother and Father gave their permission for Horace to come calling", said Charity.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_5ac02593_zpstbmqs4yy

"We're almost adults", said Patience, "We shouldn't have to have their permission for everything we do".
"Patience, you have a gentlemen caller, too", said Charity, "Turn around".
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_1ac02474_zps5p2fkubj

She turned around and saw Chandar standing at the window. He motioned for her to come outside  "My gentleman caller is waiting", said Patience, giggling, "If Mother or Father asks, tell them I'm in the toilet".
"I will, but please be careful.  If you to get caught, we'll both be in trouble", said Charity.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_3ac07a66_zpsmr3vkllh

"This is a nice surprise, but I'm afraid my Father will catch us, if you keep coming over like this", she said.
"I wanted to tell you something", said Chandar.
"What is it?", she asked.

"Shardul is marrying Hala this coming Saturday.  They've been promised to each other since they were childern", he explained, "He says he loves her, but even if he didn't, he's have to marry her".
"Chandar, do you think your father will force you to marry someone, you don't love one day?", asked Patience.

"I don't want to ever get married.  Since Samir's father promised her to Nachik, I don't have to worry  about that".  

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_1ac07ae2_zpsxxupy4c7

"Chandar, I wish I could  see Hala and Shardul get married", said Patience

"Why don't you come?", he asked.
"Do you really think it will be alright?", she asked.
"Sure, I'm inviting you", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_5ac083c5_zpsxkz5sgnh

"I wish I didn't have to sneak around to be with you", she said.

"You better go back inside, before they come looking for you", said Chandar.
"If I can think of a way, I'll see you at the wedding Saturday", said Patience

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_3ac08e44_zpsasv55cnq

Over at the Indian village Hala was sitting alone in the meeting place, thinking about her upcoming wedding to Shardul.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_bac0d8c8_zpsbcaqwgc8

"If you don't mind, may I interrupt your thoughts?", asked her intended.  "What were you thinking about?", he asked.
"You", she answered

"I've been thinking about you, too", he said.
"You know something, I can't remember a time that I wasn't thinking about you", said Hala.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_1ac0d8ef_zpsfckal0jy

"I was lucky to have been the first male child and that you were the first female child born in the village", said Shardul.
"I'm also lucky you grew up so beautiful", said Hala, "I remember what a plain, skinny little boy you were".

"I never had any doubts about how you would turn out", he said, "You've always been beautiful".
"You're such a flatterer, you know I was a homely little thing, too", she laughed

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_dac0ddf5_zpsj2ea88aw

The day has come, for Quanah to tell his youngest son that he's been promised a wife.  Quanah knew, Chandar never wanted to get married, but will do as he is told, the same as he himself had done.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_3ac0de07_zpsod4rc935

When Chanda arrived, Quanah said, "Come sit down.. I have something very important to tell you."

"What is it, Father/", he asked.

"At the last council meeting, you know we decided to let the three Cheyenne girls stay in our village.  What you don't know is that they will become wives for Balik, Sundar and you", said Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_3ac0de29_zpsykvo42nu

"Father, I don't want to ever get married", said Chandar.
"You must do what the council decides", said Quanah, "Since you are the next oldest, Pale Moon will be promised to you".

"She's very beautiful, but a bit stubbon", said Chandar.
"The other women will teach her what's expected of her", he said, "She'll know her place, by the time you get married".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_9ac09f4b_zps7bf4qly1

Chandar went into the barn.  He lay on the haystack thinking about the decision that has changed his life forever.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_dac09fb0_zpsaibath4s

Samir followed Chandar into the barn and climbed onto the haystack beside him

"I can feel there's something troubling you", she said, "What's wrong?"

"The council decided I needed a wife", he said, "Pale Moon and me are promised to one another".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_5ac0a002_zpsihmbsec4

"But you didn't ever what to get married!"

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_3ac0a00b_zpsfdhq8w9y

"I still don't, but I have to do what my father and the council says!".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_7ac0a033_zpsjv8otoxu

"Samir got up from the haystack.
"Samir", this won't change anything between us", said Chandar.
Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_7ac0a06f_zpsobgt04fp

"I can still be your lover.  We'll both just be married to others now", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_babf79a3_dac0a0cb_zpszgfrjk88

Samir walked out of the barn, reassured that she still had some kind of a future with Chandar.

Blood Brothers!  Chapter 20

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_bac5b70e-1

At the village the day has arrived that Hala Fisher has been looking forward to most all her life.  She was going to marry the man she had been promised to since they were childern.  Hala looks beautiful, dressed in a white dress trimmed with gold and blue beads.  Shardul Whitefeather watched, as she  joined him under the wedding canapy.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_1ac4a895_zpshmjgr2ze

Shardul held a plain gold band and said, "This ring, symbolizes that you will be my wife from this day forward.  As this ring has no end, neither will my love for you". Then he placed the ring on her finger.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_7ac4a897_zpsxhrkngw3

Hala held an identical ring in her hand and said, "This ring, symbolizes my desire to be your wife and belong to you from this day forward.  As this ring has no end, neither will my love for you". She placed the ring on Shardul's finger.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_dac4a95d_zpswmf3gp4e

"I will love and protect you, as long as we both shall live", he said

Then he gave his wife a romantic kiss.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_5ac5b6b8_zps8i1xda7c

Shardul led the way and Hala followed.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_fac5f796_zps8jiycvjs

They joined their friends and families to receive their best wishes for a long and happy marriage.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_7ac5fee4_zpsilj8rj0b

Sanir was with her intended Nachik Fisher (the bride's brother), but was intent on watching  . . .

Hala walked with Shardul to his hut, she will be sharing with him as his wife.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_dac4be6e_zpswssuvywr

After they both had changed into their night clothes, Hala called Shardul to come.  He picked her up and carried her over to the bed.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_5aa48376_zpsnhv3zkg8

They madeout  

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_faa3ce21_daa48385_zps04x2aw4g

"Did I tell you how beautiful you look?", he said. "Yes, but you can tell me again", she said, "I love hearing you say it".

"Can we do woo hoo now?  I've been waiting a very long time", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_9ac4c011_zpskgos3ebu

When Hala said YES, the years of waiting for both were over.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_5ac4c092_zps6onpo60o

"Shardul, are you asleep already?", asked Hala.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_5ac4c089_zpstikfxrso

"I'm sorry, but it's been a long day", he woke up long enough to answer   "I'm the luckiest girl in the village, to have such a beautiful and loving husband", she thought to herself.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_bac4c476_zpsmcnj6myy

The next morning, when Hala was preparing breakfast, she felt sick to her stomach

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_5ac4c456_zpsrwcaiaq6

She wondered if she could be with child already Then she smiled to herself.   She'd wait to tell Shardul when they were alone tonight. Then she quickly finished fixing breakfast. She served the toasted cheese to the men, then hurridly run out the door.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_dac4c4d2_zpstftsa1er

Quanah saw Hala run out the door.  Then he looked over at Shardul.  "How did things go last night?", he asked.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_dac4c4f6_zpsfgot3zim

"It went fine, just what I expected", said Shardul.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_7ac60531_zps6z73eqpy

Things weren't going the way Chandar expected.  Samir was promised to Nachik, but she acted like she was promised to him instead.  If she didn't stop making it so obvious how she felt about him, they were both going to be in trouble. "I'll have to talk to her today", he thought to himself.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_5ac605d0_zps6zxqwtur

He turned around when he heard a female voice say his name.  "Patience, what are you doing here?", he asked.   "I couldn't find a way to sneak out yesterday to come to the wedding", she said, "Father went into town a few minutes ago, so I came here".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_7ac6083c_zpsgcimv6oh

"I wanted so much to see you", she said.
"I'm happy to see you, too", he said, "I just didn't expect to see you HERE".

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_3ac60a95_zpsv5wvob3f

"It's really lovely down here by the river, isn't it?", said Patience.
"I reckon it is, I never thought much about it", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_7ac60809_zpsmzqmglej

Once they were behind the barn, Chandar gave her a romantic hug.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_fac47a15_fac6059b_zpsf2oifdeq

"I wish I didn't have to leave, but my father will be home soon", she said.
"I'll try to come by to see you in a few days", he said.
"Chandar, as soon as we're adults, we shouldn't have to sneak around to see each other", said Patience.

"We've been waiting our whole lives to start our family.  I still find it hard to believe", said Hala.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_5aca2ae3_zpsuyqotbrb

Shardul gave her a romantic kiss.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_daca2b1b_zpsfoje7sxo

"Shardul, let me get up", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_3accb6e6_zpsy5ca9ywz

Hala had started into labor.

She delivered a beautiful baby boy. They named their son Shilah, which means brother.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_9acd8e52_zpse6j9gc8k

Samir and Chandar were in the barn.  "This is the last chance we'll have to be together before your birthday tonight", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_3acd8e69_zpstysiylsq

"It ain't going to be too long before you have your birthday", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_7acd8f8d_zpsuyisgtvd

"Chandar, I'll be glad when I'm an adult, but I wish I didn't have to marry Nachik", said Samir.
"You have to do as your father and the council decided", he said.

"Once Nachik and I are married, you can be my lover", she said.
"Why can't we be lovers as soon as you grow up?", he asked.
"If Nachik isn't my first woo hoo, I will be a disgrace to my father", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_facd8e70_zpspr9kc3cj

"You know if I had a choice, you'd be the first", she said, nuzzling his neck.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_facd8ed8_zpsowg9fclk

Then Chandar gave her a romantic kiss.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_3acd8dbe_zps6ctdt0wa

"We better get out of here before someone comes in", said Chandar.
"I'll be at the gathering place tonight to watch you grow up", said Samir.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_5ac9f625_zpsxqmi9jt9

Quanah was out in the yard exercising.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_daca2447_zps481ot3vl

When he finished and turned around, he saw Hita.  "Quanah, with Marala mad at you, I know you must have some unfulfilled needs I can help you with", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_3aca2e82_zpsxsvt1xri

"I'd rather not ever do woo hoo for the rest of my life, than to do it with YOU!", he growled.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_1aca2dd1_zpsl6vi8ijl

"Leave my husband alone!", Marala screamed, when she saw Hita with Quanah.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_faca2e64_zpsxlguyxhg

"If you don't take care of his needs, somebody else should", said Hita.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_1accae12_zpsdtlf231n

"I hate to admit it, but I think she's right", said Marala.

"Does that mean what I hope it does?", asked Quanah.
"Yes, I've missed you", she said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_3acd94eb_zpsvjgwqend

"You didn't grow up too bad looking", Chandar told her.
"Neither did you", said Pale Moon.

Chandar and Pale Moon got in the tub of warm water.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_dad03193_zpshlhnolg4

"Come here", he said. She looked at him undecided for a few seconds, then she did as he asked. "Let's go somewhere more private to talk", said Chandar.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_1ad03942_zpsevyaiemn

Pale Moon went with him to the barn and they cuddled on the haystack.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_9ad03960_zpslx4kc9s3

But when Chandar asked her to do more than cuddle, she told him NO!

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_bad03899_zpsdxgyb8wi

Being she was the oldest twin by a few minutes, Charity came to her cake first.

She blew out the candles and started growing up.

She grew up well, but that hairstyle makes her look like an overgrown child.

Patience was the next to come to her cake.

After she blew out the candles, she grew up in a shower of multi-colored confetti.

She grew up into a pretty adult.

"Horace is coming over this afternoon", said Charity, "Do I look alright?"
"You're lovely, but I think that hairstyle makes you lok too old", said Patience.

"Remember when we wanted hairstyles that made us look older", Patience laughed

Charity went to the mirror to decide on another hairstyle.

Jack Ellis greeted Horace Fletcher when he arrived.  "When my wife and daughters came to welcome your family to River's Edge, I regret that I was unable to accompany them", he said.

"My mother said she would like to invite you and Mrs. Ellis to dinner, when your wife is feeling better", said Horace.

"Hello Horace.  I'm glad you could come over", said Charity.

"Would it be alright, if we sit on the front porch?", he asked.
"Yes, I think that's a splendid idea", she answered.

"Charity, it would be alright if you sit a little closer", said Horace.

"Is this better?", she asked.
"Yes, much better", he said.

Patience lounged on the back porch.

She stood up when she heard a noise.

"Chandar, is that you?", she called

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_bad04344_zpsvizel3fa

"Yes", he said, it's me.

"Oh, you grew up.and you're the most beautiful man I've ever seen", she said.

"You're still just as beautiful as you were the first time I saw you", he said .

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_fad05462_zpsztexdaxr

"I know somewhere we can go, where nobody will see you", she whispered in his ear..

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_7ad046ab_zps7troqass

"Come with me, it's just down here", she said.

"It's not the nicest place, but at least we can be alone", she said.
"It's fine, I don't mind", he said, being use to "haystack romance".

"Chandar, I wish things were different, so you could be my gentleman caller", she said.
"You and me both know, your father wouldn't allow it", he said.

"I wonder why everything has to be so difficult", she said.

"Because I'm a poor Comanche and you're a rich white woman", said Chandar.

Then he gave her a romantic kiss.

"I think I better go before we do something you'll be sorry for later", he said.

Blood Brothers!   Snapshot_1ad078de_7ad048cc_zpsdgchjydn

"Chandar, I wouldn't regret anything I do with you", she said.
