Arika

Arika meaning waterlily in aboriginal language was the name of a very pretty girl. She had brown eyes, pitch black hair and very fair complexion, her father was known for fighting , for the freedom of Aboriginees from Australian whites.

One night there was the sound of fast galloping horses in their settlements.

The commander in chief an exceptionally handsome white male , ordered his army to attack the aboriginal settlements.  Arika saw this and ran away .  Aboriginees under the command of Arika’s father fought bravely and killed all Australian white soldiers. Most of the Australian soldiers got killed and lost the battle.

Only the commander in chief was left , he ran away. Arika saw this from distance and ran after him and she took him and his horse by hand and hid him in a far away tent.

Arika ran away in her green dress and white flowers on her head.  The commander in chief forgot the beauty he had seen and slept in his tent.

The whole night Arika dreamt of the handsome man , she had met.  She could’nt sleep.

Early in the morning Arika went to meet him, the commander in chief climbed the horse and Arika showed him the way , away he ran crossing a small river on his horse.

After he was safe he turned back to glance at Arika, who was eagerly waiting for his one look.  Finally they went their own way ,  parting for good.
