Book Cover & Preview Text
When Cooran returns several hours later, King Rohaan is anxious
to meet with his young prince before meeting with the top officials
of his kingdom. As Cooran approaches the throne and bows, the
king asks with an excited smile, “How was your journey?”
But before his son can answer, the king tells him with great
delight, “I have the answers; I’ve got all the answers.”
Cooran looks up with great surprise and asks, “Father, you have
the answers to both of your dreams?”
The king says excitedly, “I’ve got the answer to my dreams and
a whole lot more. Let’s go to my chamber to discuss this before we
meet with the others.”
They both proceed to the king’s chamber, where King Rohaan
freely dances with delight. Cooran is surprised at the delightful
change of his father’s mood from the depressed man he left behind
a few days before.
King Rohaan tells his son of the unbelievably great things that
took place during his absence from Daaveran. He tells Cooran the
meaning of his dreams, the plan that was given to save his people
and his kingdom, and the person he has chosen to make sure this
plan works. Finally, he tells Cooran about the beautiful maiden,
once a servant to the captain of the guard, who had told him of her
God—Jah, who gave the dreams, the interpretation, the plan, and
King Rohaan, now bursting with excitement, then announces,
“And this maiden is perfect for you, Cooran! She will make you a
Dumbfounded, Cooran responds, “And you have known her
for how long? All of several hours, and you now know that she is
perfect for me?” Cooran whines, “Father!”
“Let me meet with the other officials for a final discussion, and
then we shall all dine with this maiden, Sephina, and you will see!”
the king tells him.
“Sephina?” Cooran asks, totally confused.
“Yes, that is the maiden’s name,” King Rohaan says. “Did I not
“Sephina! No, it can’t be.” Cooran thinks out loud. “It’s … it’s
The king now looks rather puzzled himself, but is still smiling
King Rohaan then informs his son that he plans to make
the special announcement during his birthday feast. Cooran is
thankful, excited, yet confused by all the information his father has
shared with him.
Cooran quickly goes to refresh himself before heading to
the dining chamber. As he cleans up and changes his attire, he is
giddy with excitement at the possibility of his “little one” being
here in the land of his birth. But how can that be? Sephina,
Cooran shakes his head quizzically and says out loud, “No way
this maiden could be my Sephina.” He hesitates and thinks, Nah …
no way! Then he hurries to the celebration.
As King Rohaan meets with his top officials, he discusses the
situation. He tells them how his dreams reveal a period to come,
having seven years of plenty, with good harvests, and then seven
years of famine—no rain and no full harvest. Nothing but death
and suffering can be expected, if Jah’s plan is not properly followed.
The king tells them about the maiden Sephina and how
impressed he is by her ability to interpret dreams, her confidence
in her God, and her beauty. He lightly jokes about appointing her
to Cooran as his wife. They all chuckle.
The king then shares with them his chosen appointee. They all
agree that the king has made the perfect choice. They all leave
to quickly refresh themselves before joining the others.
Convening just an hour later, King Rohaan and his top officials
head to the dining chamber together. Cooran, on the other hand,
arrives by himself. He got so caught up in his thoughts, he believes
he is the last to arrive at the dining chamber. When Cooran finally
joins the others, their special guest has not yet arrived.
Just as they sit, the large and beautifully carved wooden double
doors open, announcing their special guest. As she enters the
dining chamber, all the men stand and are in awe of her beauty.
Sephina too is in awe of the grandeur of the palace and her
surroundings, and to be there is truly remarkable.
Sephina’s thoughts immediately turn to the faithfulness and
truth of Jah, the God whom she serves and trusts with her very life.
Sephina then whispers, “Jah, You are so faithful.”
Sephina is not yet aware, but she is being escorted to be seated
next to King Rohaan and his son, Prince Cooran. As she comes
closer, Cooran smiles excitedly, thinking that his father might be
right in saying that she is perfect for him. Then, to his surprise, he
recognizes her as the beautiful maiden he has searched for in every
village, town, territory, and kingdom he has traveled over the years.
But now here she is, walking toward him. He then asks himself if this
is the maiden his father told him of. Though he is rather excited, he is
again puzzled, because he had hoped from his father’s description
that she might be a friend from his youth. He is now totally confused;
yet the mysterious maiden is being escorted ever closer to him.
Then Sephina stops in mid-stride and says just above a whisper,
“Cooran?’ His mind races and is dizzy with confusion, as he sees
her lips form his name.
Cooran moves from the table toward her, as everyone looks
on in utter surprise. He now knows her, but not as the mysterious
and beautiful maiden he first recognized. It is … is it really? … He
then softly calls out, “Sephina? My ‘little one’—is that really you?”
Everyone is surprised! The king is so excited he can hardly
contain himself. Smiling! Laughing! Cooran and Sephina run
toward each other. They both stop short, looking incredulously at
each other. And then they embrace.
