Chapter One

"Jao Ying jao ka, jao ying."

"Jao Ying jao ka, I beg you, please wake up."

"Jao Ying jao ka...

Rarin blinked slowly a few times until her vision was fully restored. It is so hot, she thought to herself. She gasped for air and felt a pair of arms cradle her up in a sitting position.

"Jao Ying jao ka."

"My princess, are you alright?"

It appears she was dreaming. What a handsome guy! Rarin made eye contact with the man in front of her. Although he appeared to be in a panicky state he was nevertheless godly handsome...and muscular!

"My princess," he said in a concerned tone. "Are you alright?"

"I'm fine," Rarin replied.

What a traditional nerd! If this was his flirting method then he has got to try harder. She preferred for guys to not be too corny.

"I was so worried about you," he said as he helped her stand up on both feet.

He began to brush off the dust from her...PANTS! Where are her pants?! What the hell is she wearing?!

"Stop! Stop! Stop!" she shouted hysterically at him. "What are you doing?"

Rarin suddenly felt as though this was not a dream. She paused for a minute and looked wildly around. She studied the two women dressed in...what were they wearing? Tube tops?! And why were they kneeling?!
The handsome man was dressed rather elegant as if he were a groom about to be married. He did seem like an anxious groom now that she thought about it.

Rarin could tell they were all frightened now. She, herself, was frightened too. She closed her eyes, pinched herself, and hoped she would wake from this awkward dream. When she opened her eyes and saw him again, she slowly backed away.

"What is going on?" Rarin asked aloud.
She did not expect a decent answer from any of them as their appearances were far from decent. They were weird if anything.

"My princess...

"Stop calling me that!" exclaimed Rarin. "I am not your princess!"

"You're okay," he said, cautiously approaching her.

"Oh, I'm so far from okay," said Rarin. "This can't be real."

"What are you saying?" asked the man.

The two women remained on their knees on the hot and dusty ground.

"Are you saying what I think you're saying?" he asked.

Rarin hoped he wouldn't cry. He seemed like a broken soul.

"I don't know what you're talking about," she replied.

"My love, this is our wedding day," he said. "Please don't do this to me."

Rarin's heart and jaw simultaneously dropped. She backed away even further and began to run away. Tears flooded her eyes and trickled down her face. She wiped them away and kept running. He was going after her but she didn't care. This is not real.

"This is not real," she whimpered.

"Princess Kaewkwan!" he called out to her.

Why was he calling her this?


She ran as far as her two feet could take her. As she approached a stream, Rarin tripped over some pebbles and found herself looking up at her own reflection in the waters...only it wasn't her own reflection...

"Princess Kaewkwan!"

The guy kneeled down next to her and violently turned her around.

"Are you alright?!" he exclaimed.

There was fear in his voice.

"Don't ever run from me again," he said, taking her into his arms.

Rarin was still crying out of fear. She was frightened. The woman that stared back at her in the water a minute ago was not her. What is happening to her?

"Princess Kaewkwan! Princess Kaewkwan!"

"Rin! Thank God, you're okay!"

Princess Kaewkwan felt a sudden warmth travel up her spine. Although her eyes were still shut, she could feel his rapid heartbeat. As long as she had knew him, Prince YodFah's voice never trembled like this before.

She wrapped her arms around him and felt tears roll away from her eyes.

"Rin, I am so sorry," said Chananon. "I will never break your heart again. I'm so sorry."

Princess Kaewkwan opened her mouth to speak but no words came out. Prince Yodfah helped her sit upright and wrapped his right arm around her to support her back and wiped away her tears with his left hand. That's when her vision became clear. She realized at once that this man comforting her was not her Prince Yodfah.

"Rin, can you forgive me?" Chananon asked.


Princess Kaewkwan jumped off of the stretcher and tried to detach the cord that was wrapped around her wrist but it hurt so bad that she fell to the floor.

"Rin, no! Don't do that!" Chananon exclaimed.

He rushed beside her and tried to restrain her from removing the IV from her left wrist. She screeched loudly in pain and pushed him away. Suddenly, a team of nurses charged in to the rescue.

"Rin, what are you doing?!" Chananon exclaimed.

"Who's Rin?!" Princess Kaewkwan shot back. "Why do you keep calling me that?"

"I'm Non," said Chananon, pointing at himself. "I'm your boyfriend!"


What does that even mean? Princess Kaewkwan thought to herself. She was so frightened that she hadn't taken notice of the group of nurses that had swarmed her, two of which were holding her back.

Princess Kaewkwan closed her eyes and gulped. She tried to calm down. When she opens her eyes again, this man would be gone. She would be in the Northern Palace with Prince YodFah at her side. This was just a bad dream.

"Rin!" Chananon barked. "What's wrong with you?"

Upon seeing the fear on her face, he had begun to cry. This was all his fault. He shouldn't have cheated on her. Was he losing her?

"It appears the patient suffered a head injury that we weren't previously aware of," said one of the nurses. "This may have caused her to lose her memory."

This was his punishment, Chananon thought. Was it their fate or was she playing a cruel joke on him? Either way, he refused to believe this was true. His Rarin was in there somewhere.

"Rin," he pleaded. "I'm sorry...don't...don't do this me."

Princess Kaewkwan shook her head and hopelessly collapsed to the ground.

This was not a dream. It was a lucid nightmare.
Chapter Two

Two weeks. That is the amount of time it had taken for things to soak in for Rarin. The fact that she will never be able to go home seemed like a curse. She was forced to accept the truth that her spirit had left her body and wandered into another woman's living in historic times. That's right. She, Rarin, was officially living in the past...and she was married to some prince named YodFah.

So far, the guy had been nice to her. As a matter of fact, everyone seemed nice. It was just she was out of place. She was pretty sure some of these people assumed she was crazy at one point when she tried to run away from her wedding.

"Jao ying jao kha."

Rarin was even starting to get used to ancient royal terminology. And the fact that she had slaves! She really pitied them. More than anything, she didn't want them. She didn't need them. Her heart wrenched each time they requested for her apology when they did absolutely wrong. Their good manners were way over the hill.

"Jao ying jao kha," said Kerd. "I have prepared your bath water for you."

"Thank you," said Rarin. "Please teach me how to do it so you don't have to do it next time."

Kerd fell onto her knees onto the hard wooden floor and repeatedly apologized for mistake in preparing the bathwater.

"Kerd, please get up!" Rarin exclaimed. "Don't do this!"

"I'm sorry if I made a mistake in preparing your bath water," she cried.

"You've done nothing wrong," Rarin told her. "I just wanted you to simply teach me how to prepare the bath water myself so you don't have to do it next time not because you made any mistakes in preparing it."

Kerd slowly looked up.

"Please get up," said Rarin.

She looked around at all three of them in the room.

"All is you get up, please," she pleaded. "I don't want any of you to kneel to me. I'm just a regular person like all of you."

The all looked at each other and remained frozen to the spot.

"I'm afraid we cannot do that," said Yam. "You are a princess. You are of a noble rank and we are slaves."

"E Yam is right jao kha," Kerd agreed. "It is part of our duties."

Rarin shook her head. Why does her life have to be so complicated like if it wasn't already complicated enough before she was a princess. Rarin knew this princess life wasn't for her regardless of the era she was living in. She wasn't cut out to be a noble or royal woman period.

"Jao ying jao kha," said Kerd. "Your bath is waiting for you."

Rarin nodded and made her way towards the gigantic wooden tub. The servants assisted her as she slowly descended into the calm and warm waters. It felt really really good. There was also rose petals floating around that gave a pleasant scent. So this is how a princess bathes. All of her worries soaked in with the water for about ten solid minutes. For a moment she had forgotten who she was and allowed her lush surroundings swallow her whole. Then, her peace and tranquility was interrupted by a knock on the door.
Rarin jerked her neck in the direction of the bedroom door. She heard it open and close and automatically assumed that the servants had answered it so she went back to her bath.

"Who was it, Yam?" Rarin called out and she poured water from one hand to the other. "Yam? Kerd? Wad?"

There was no answer.

The tall muscular shadow told Rarin the trespasser was a male. She reached for her clothes and hastily threw on everything.

"It's me," said Prince YodFah, emerging from the other side of the wall.

Rarin threw a punch at him right before he introduced himself and missed his face by approximately an inch. Instead, he swirled her around into his manly arms.

"Let go of me!"

She broke free from him and stepped back about two feet away. Grabbing the closest object nearby she aimed it at his face and ordered him to back away.

"Calm down," he said. "Please, I am your husband now. I won't hurt you."

She did not lower the elongated vase thingy she was holding.

"I don't know what I did wrong for you to have a sudden change of heart," said Prince YodFah. "And I don't know how many more times I have to tell you I won't hurt you for you to trust me again. We are husband and wife now. I will take care of you. There's no need to be scared of anything, my dear."

Rarin lowered her 'weapon'.

"I'm sorry," she said. "I just need some time to process everything that has happened."

Stepping in a bit closer to her, Prince YodFah grasped onto the opposite end of the lamp thingy she was holding. Rarin let it slip away from her hand and watched him put it back where it was.

"If I were to harm you, you wouldn't be able to stop me with that thing," he told her. "Please...I won't hurt you."

Even though she wasn't in her own skin, Rarin felt violated. 'Her' hair was still dripping wet from the bath and her clothes were half-drenched. Arms folded, she looked around uneasily. She was afraid to make eye contact with him. He was a handsome man and many women in the land probably dreamed of having someone like him yet here he was in this very room with her. He was 'her' husband.

There was an awkward silence. This actually happened quite a lot since she has met him. He knew something about her was off but she just couldn't explain to him without freaking him out. He was already halfway there probably.

Prince YodFah slowly approached her and lifted her chin up with his right hand so that their eyes met. Rarin could feel her heart pounding. She really wanted to tell him that she was not his Princess Kaewkwan. Whoever this princess was, she was damn lucky to have a guy like him. It only took her two weeks to establish that. He seemed very sincere and desperately in love with her... not like Rarin's ex-boyfriend Chananon.

"Non," Rarin remembered.

She would be lying if she said she didn't miss him.

"What?" asked a puzzled Prince YodFah.
"Nothing," Rarin quickly lied.
"I will win your heart back," said Prince YodFah. "No matter what takes, my princess."

Rarin wasn't listening. Her mind was still on Chananon.

Except for the small ray of sunlight that poked through the teeny tiny gap of the window curtains, the entire bedroom was dark and quiet.
Princess Kaewkwan rolled over on her side facing the balcony window and suddenly sat upright in bed, remembering that this was not her bedroom. She had almost forgotten that she was in another woman's body. Someone named Rarin.

It had been a while since this strange phenomenon had happened to her. The last memory Princess Kaewkwan had was her nuptials with Prince YodFah but something terrible had happened. She couldn't entirely recall everything that happened that day but she knew her prince must be so devastated. Or, was he? Was he aware what had happened to her? And what happened to her body if her spirit departed from it?

"You're awake, my love."

Chananon had entered the room with a tray in his hands. He set it on the table in front of the TV and proceeded to sit on the bed next to Princess Kaewkwan.

"How are you feeling today?" he asked her, placing the palm of his right hand over her forehead.

"I'm fine," she replied coldly.

She still hadn't gotten used to him. Princess Kaewkwan had to pretend she was Rarin because last time she tried to explain her true identity, everyone concluded she was crazy. She was then sent to a hospital where there were other 'crazy people' supervised by doctors and nurses. Of course, she had no idea what that was but that was Chananon's explanation.

"If you continue to act this this traditional manner then you will be sent there," she remembered him saying a couple of weeks earlier. "You're not some historical're just need some time to remember who you are."

And so Princess Kaewkwan was diagnosed to have temporary memory loss, which she knew very well that was not true. The more she tried to explain, however, the more complicated and chaotic it became.

But she had acted out of fear. She feared that she will never be able to reunite with her body. She feared that she will never be able to return home to her parents and Prince Yodfah.

"Rin," said Chananon. "C'mon, you've gotta eat something."

He escorted her to the table and sat down next to her on the sofa.

"Let me feed you, okay?" he suggested.

Princess Kaewkwan shook her head and proceeded to eat the rice congee herself. It was very tasty. She smiled and continued to finish the rest of it as Chananon watched her. He was smiling too.

"What are you looking at?" she asked.

"You, of course," he replied. "You have no idea how much I've missed you."

Princess Kaewkwan was silent.

"Thank you for forgiving me," he continued. "I know I haven't been a very good boyfriend but I will make it up to you. I will help you remember who you are. I will help you remember our love."

Now that he mentioned it again Princess Kaewkwan wondered what this man did to Rarin. Whatever it was it sounded like a terrible mistake.

"There you guys are."

And in came Chaya, who was supposedly Rarin's best friend. Thank goodness they live together because if Princess Kaewkwan had to live with anyone else especially Chananon, she'd probably be extremely uncomfortable. Of all the people she has met since she became entrapped in Rarin's body, Chaya was the nicest. Chananon had asked Chaya to take care of Rarin but Princess Kaewkwan believed that Chaya would've done that regardless without Chananon asking her to.

"I figured you were here, Khun Non," said Chaya. "I guess I can take over your shift now. You know, have some girl time with my best friend. Go shopping, perhaps."

Chananon bit his lip and nodded. He got up and bid his farewell to the ladies.

"Ugh, if it weren't for you losing your memory, I would never give this guy the key to my condo," said Chaya.

Princess Kaewkwan knew that Chaya secretly despised Chananon. She often labeled him a 'Mama's boy' and a 'cheater'.

"Let's go shopping!" said Chaya smiling. "Khun Danai agreed to let me off work early so I am yours for the rest of the day, bestie!"

The name 'Danai' came up quite a bit around Chaya. Princess Kaewkwan had met him only once when he had visited at the hospital and she vaguely remembered kicking him out of the room at the time because of her fear.

"He's really worried about you," Chaya told her.

"Tell him I said thank you," said Princess Kaewkwan.

This Danai guy sounded more favorable and convincing than Chananon. Unlike Chananon, however, he had never paid her a visit after she left the hospital which made Princess Kaewkwan wonder what his relationship to Rarin was. Chaya had never mentioned it either. Whoever he was, Princess Kaewkwan felt obligated to apologize to him for her erratic behavior in the hospital. She hoped he would understand.
