The friend-maid advises her lady’s lover to come to her house and stay as guest to her parents.
The man, the hero says, applying his hands on his lover’s head, we spend all the daytime at the seashore where crane-birds steel the drying fishes on sand spread in the morning; the fishes gathered by net. It is evening at present. You my driver, attach the horses in chariot for our journey. You my innocent girl, leave to your house with your friend-maid.
On hearing this word, the lady feels very much shedding tears. On seeing the tears in her lady’s eyes, the friend-maid asked the hero thus:
My lady’s tear may result worst in her part; hence you my lord, I think, it is better to come to our house as guests passing through the way unexpectedly. If you will do her father born in rich family will welcome you warmly and you and your followers as guests. It is not good to travel at night where sharks are moving is sea waves.
|he says touching her head|
