KUDIMA IS SULTAN SURAB’S FIRST WIFE AND THE MOTHER OF KISIG. DESPITE WHAT DENI-AI (SURAB’S OTHER WIFE) MIGHT THINK, KUDIMA SHARES A LOT OF THE SAME UNNERVING FEELINGS ABOUT THIS UPCOMING TRIP. FOR KUDIMA THIS JOURNEY IS ULTIMATELY ABOUT KISIG AND FULFILLING THEIR POLITICAL ROLES.

THIS IS HER STORY… 


We are to leave at dawn. The winds do not bode well for this journey. Surab will not take heed to the signals at play. He is stubborn indeed. But he believes that this will help our son and the truth is Kisig is in need of guidance. He needs a sense of direction, of purpose. He has no understanding of his responsibility to the Sultanate.

I, myself, have struggled to adjust to this life as the wife to the Sultan. The stresses of Surab’s political battles affect me in ways I was not expecting when I married him.  To live this life one must call on an immense amount of inner strength. I always have to present myself with grace even when I am angry or confused inside. Public opinion of him can be manipulated by rivals and at times they use the family to spoil his image. It is damaging to the family.

And now we have this new woman in the family, Surab’s second wife. She is of a world that I do not fully understand. Her presence is quite unnerving but she is of value to the family and the entire Sultanate. If anything, this power of hers should provide protection for us as we embark on this journey.
