Purananuru 300

Give me leather shield immediately to cover my chest in battle, you asked for. It was provided. Even then, you are likely to hiding behind a large stone. It is a covert deed.  
Yesterday you killed braver. Today his younger brother is searching for you and your king's fort to revenge. Are you ready to face him?
