Thus, the man who hates adventure, the man who never leaves anything to luck, and the man who never takes any unnecessary risks, found himself in the middle of a foreign land, surrounded by alien people and strange things at the worst possible time of his life. Just a few days after the second awakening of his mind.
Away from everything he knew, with two other consciousness in his mind one of which is only a few days old, he just did what the Black Covered Book says to do:
He operated under the assumption of being behind the enemy lines. He trusted no one, stayed away from everyone and everything. He hoped to find a way back or a way to send a distress signal. But there was a small problem.
While Pinhan was trying to learn where he was or how to return to or even how to contact with his post, he had no idea how long it would take and absolutely no desire to struggle with mundane aspects of everyday life such as cooking, cleaning, and washing. Especially if this washing includes his own underwear… Thus, he did what he was trained to do. He recruited, trained, and commanded. Trying to establish himself in this foreign place, he learned and realized things that would change everything, including his own worldview due to a specific woman who refuses to leave his side.
Yesim was not a fool. She knew that she was living on borrowed time. The only reason that she is still alive was some kind of code of honor that prevents Pinhan to harm someone that has shown mercy on him while he was vulnerable. She knew better. She knew that the moment she decides to leave him would be the moment she dies. Thus, she set her mind. If she can’t leave him alive, then she must be irreplaceable for him. Luckily, she just knew how to do so.
This is my first novel and English is not my first language. I am writing as a hobby. Thus, please be kind and point out my mistakes. Obviously, I have no editor and that's why I would appreciate editing suggestions in the comments.
You should expect:
- A non-European and non-Japanese medieval setting that includes a protagonist that does not belong to the setting: Thus expect different values, different customs, and conflict between them.
-Non-English words, concepts, idioms, legend, and sometimes even cultural norms: Therefore, please ask for anything that is not explained properly inside of the story because no translation is perfect especially when the underlying culture is too different.
The cover image was prepared with Waifulabs AI by Sizigi Studios and represents Yesim, the female protagonist of the story.
