The Dark King – Chapter 502

Dragon Clan’s Conference Hall.

There was a round table in the middle of the dark hall. There were chairs behind the table. The bottomless darkness was dormant behind the table as if it was a monster’s nest. At the top there was a huge throne. It didn’t look like a chair but more like a bed. The edges of the throne had black barbs which gave the impression of large eyes with eyelashes.

In this spacious throne lay a graceful figure. The body of the young woman was covered in a scarlet red robe. The robe was engraved with black flowers and the gown was extremely long. It went down through the throne into the darkness.

The woman looked like in her early twenties as her skin was delicate and white. However she had the charm of a mature woman. Her eyes were half-closed. She calmly looked at the place. It seemed as if nothing could interfere the truth from her sight. She seemed to have the capability to see through all things, right or wrong.

An old woman stood by the dragon throne.

Different people sat on the chairs by the table. Their bodies were hidden in the darkness but the contours of their figures could be seen. Some of the seemed young like six or seven year old kids. Some of them were tall and burly. Some of them had thin bodies and were like pool of mud which laid on the table.

“Ladies and gentlemen.” A stalwart figure sitting on the right side of the dragon throne spoke out. The man’s elbows were pressing onto the table while his fingers were crossed. His golden eyes swept over everyone: “The secret combat arts of the dragon clan were stolen. The investigation has been finished and the saint ‘Aisha’ is deemed to be the one who had presented the arts to her friend from the outer wall. We have recovered the secret combat arts. Now we have to come to a decision on how to punish Aisha. We will follow the old rules and come to a decision by vote.”

“Ha Ha!” A girl who was less than a half a meter tall laughed: “Patriarch, saint Aisha is your daughter. She has committed such a grave sin. How do you think we should act?”

“I have already said that she was no longer my daughter since Aisha became the saint of the clan. She carries hope and responsibilities of the Dragon clan. You guys have the right to correct me if I am wrong.”

The girl continued: “Blood is always thicker than water! Although you say so but listening to you it seems that you want to sway from punishing her. Fortunately, the combat arts didn’t fall into hands of the other two families. It would be like lighting up the torch and burning the hard work and effort of our ancestors!”

Patriarch indifferently said as he coldly looked at the young girl: “My proposal is to imprison her and make sure that she stays and reflects on her actions for three years.”

“Patriarch, isn’t that punishment unreasonable?” A young figure shook his head as he smiled: “The saint is responsible for the task! Who will guard the giant wall from the threats if she is imprisoned?”

The little girl grinned: “Patriarch is going easy on his own baby daughter. It’s not a punishment but lets say much like a protection! The dragon worms won’t get close to her in prison! It’s not that we are imprisoning her but giving her three years to enjoy in bless!”

Patriarch indifferently continued: “I have called you for discussion. If you have any ideas then let us hear it. If not then we will go with mine. We will vote and the idea that gets the most votes will be realized! Do I have to repeat the rules?”

“Patriarch why are we in hurry to come up with ideas for punishment?” A figure yawned as he spoke from darkness: “Shouldn’t we speak about so-called evidences before talking about the punishment? Everyone knows that what has been done is a taboo and saint should know of such thing. Personally, I find it funny and stupid and done believe that she has done something like that.”

The little girl looked at the figure: “What do you want to say? Are you questioning the investigation abilities of Dragon clan? Do you want to say that someone has tried to frame our saint? Who would have such a big courage?”

“The one who will gain…” The figure slowly said.

The little girl turned to look at Patriarch: “Please tell us about the evidences or it will take an eternity to come to a decision.”

The patriarch was silent for a moment before turning towards the old woman by the dragon throne: “Larina, explain.”

“Yes.” The old woman nodded and looked at the woman sitting on the dragon throne. She stepped forward and whispered: “We found Miss Aisha’s smell on the scrolls! In addition the reaction of the kid confirmed that it was miss Aisha.”

She paused for a moment: “We have sent people from the Dragon Guard to investigate the identity of the youth. He is a man sent by the Monastery to the outer wall as a pawn. The guards had searched his residence and found a handkerchief! ” She took out a handkerchief and put it on table.

It was a handkerchief for a small child. There were purple flowers engraved on them.

“Ha Ha!” The little girl couldn’t help but laugh as she looked at the handkerchief.

All the others looked at the handkerchief. They knew that it was not forged!

“Miss Hailey had taken people to arrest the youth when Miss Aisha appeared on top of the giant wall. We checked for her smell and confirmed it. It seems Miss Aisha was going to meet the youth but miss Hailey had taken the first step and arrested the man.” Old woman slowly said.

“The guards stationed in the building said that Miss Aisha appeared when the combat arts were stolen.” The old woman whispered: “Miss Aisha is the most suspected one and she can’t shirk away.”

“Have you questioned saint about this matter?” A tall old man looked at her.

The little girl asked: “Would she admit if they did ask?”

Old woman whispered: “We have asked. She said she didn’t steal the combat arts. She said she was on the giant wall because Miss Hailey had told her. She had gone to the building because she was told that the secret combat arts were stolen. As for the handkerchief… She said that she left it there nine years ago when she secretly sneaked into outer wall.”

“It’s clear that…” The little girl continued: “No one would admit such accusations!”

The tall old man didn’t seem to care about little girl’s words. He looked at the old woman: “Did she provide evidence?”

The old woman shook her head: “No.”

“Saint has always lived alone and in my opinion it would be very hard for her to provide evidence under these circumstances.” The previous figure continued: “However saint has said that Miss Hailey had asked for to go there. At the end if the saint was punished the one to profit the most would be Miss Hailey. It’s without a doubt that Miss Hailey has planned this play from the beginning!”

*************

The morale of the story, your siblings can always act as if they were you. Good job Hailey pretending to be Aisha!

    1. so basically Hailey used the identity of Aisha(saint) in front of Dean in their meetings. =p then you can imagine the rest :b

  1. If I were in Dudian’s position I could solve the entire mystery with a couple sentences, they asked him several time’s how he got the technique scroll so all he’d have to do was say, “A girl contacted me under the name ‘Aisha’. I was unaware of her motives but thought she was sincere when she passed me the technique scroll. The same girl who gave me the scroll was a member of the squad who captured me.”

    Because Dudian had no way of knowing what the sister looked like (when he still thought Hailey was Aisha) then the fact that he accused her would be enough to cast doubt.

    1. True, but this time his paranoia actually hurts him in that regard. He has no idea what Hailey planned so he keeps shut not knowing what to do. You’d also not know what is going on outside and can remove yourself from the situation. If you were in his position you might also end up scolding loudly, throwing accusations out of fear, who knows 😛

    2. That would be an idiotic move. Why would they believe the suspect that they have captured? If dean said the truth, they will definitely execute him on the spot for spouting nonsense. There is no evidence that Aisha’s sister gave him the scripture, if he really does what you said, it would appear that he is shifting the blame to someone else. The people sent by the dragon clan already found the handkerchief that have aisha’s emblem, so it would make it seem that aisha sent him to slander her little sister.

      In addition to that, aisha’s sister do not have the motive to give him the secret scripture of their family( in the eyes of the dragon clan members).

      Aisha’s handkerchief would already suffice as the evidence that he is somewhat connected to Ashia.
      Any average joe that is in his position would already have thought of your idea, so how would ashia’s sister have no defense for dean’s statement?

      1. “That would be an idiotic move. Why would they believe the suspect that they have captured?”

        I already said why they would believe him if you actually bothered to read my comment.

        ” If dean said the truth, they will definitely execute him on the spot for spouting nonsense.”

        You’re the one spouting nonsense, they themselves don’t know what truly happened so how could they judge whether he is telling the truth or not?

        “There is no evidence that Aisha’s sister gave him the scripture, if he really does what you said, it would appear that he is shifting the blame to someone else.”

        The purpose is to cast doubt you dunce.

        “The people sent by the dragon clan already found the handkerchief that have aisha’s emblem, so it would make it seem that aisha sent him to slander her little sister.”

        If the handkerchief were sufficient evidence to prove Aisha’s guilt then they wouldn’t be having a trial and we wouldn’t be having this argument.

        “Aisha’s handkerchief would already suffice as the evidence that he is somewhat connected to Ashia.
        Any average joe that is in his position would already have thought of your idea, so how would ashia’s sister have no defense for dean’s statement?”

        Quite the contrary, any average Joe would have realized that a simple handkerchief can be planted. Please, just stop. It’s obvious that this isn’t the realm of your expertise.

  2. Thank you for the update !!!! but I thought that the number of chapters released on those two days during the week will be a lot ,since well you know you used to release like 3-4 chapters a day so I just thought u would release like 7-9

  3. We have now reach, the waiting stage. why? I assume we’re just a few chapters behind raws right? I still root for the giant wall btw. Though I would like very much if someone tries to draw the map of the giant wall.

    1. The girl who Dudian has been meeting on the wall the over the past few chapters we find out is named Hailey and has been impersonating her older sister Aisha(who is the one who met him when he first woke up from the cryochamber) in order to frame her and get her position as Saint or have her executed for betraying the clan.

    2. Basically, Aisha is the elder sister who is a natural loner. While Hailey is the younger sister who tricked Dean to sabotage her older sister and get the Saint position in their clan.

    1. Hailey both framed Aisha(saint) and Dean. Hailey framed Dean by giving him ‘d book’. Hailey framed Aisha by pretending as Aisha in front of Dean so that Dean will point the wrong person in the investigation. D handkerchief and d book have Aisha’s scent.
      Ugh… If you can’t understand me then reread it(English is not my native language and am poor in explaining) sorry po…… ala dugo ilong ko eh

  4. He’s focusing on warlord because it’s not from qidian and This novel is from them, so it can be taken down at any time. That’s pure speculation tho.

  5. Pagkatapos ng lahat ng pangyayari na nangyari, si Dean at Aisha ay nagkita muli at sila ay nagdesisyong magtanan(elopement). LOL
    (google translate it and you’ll understand)

    Anyway I expect atleast a chapter of DK tomorrow(or the day after). Ugh can’t for more. =) 🙂
