The Dark King – Chapter 507
Aisha still held onto her calm appearance as she looked at Hailey and slowly said: “You have grown up and now you are able to bear the burden of being a saint. I have already accomplished the task that mother entrusted me. From now on you are on your own. However don’t ever try to provoke me as I won’t be merciful to you anymore.”
Hailey reacted in a tone full of ridicule: “The task that mother entrusted? That woman died long ago! What has she entrusted you with? Being merciful to me? I would be the merciful one after I learn the Dragon Ki…”
A crisp sound of a slap echoed out.
Hailey’s speech was interrupted and she was frozen on spot.
A clear print of a slender palm and five fingers appeared on her delicate cheek.
Aisha slowly took back her hand and said in a cold tone: “Don’t ever speak bad about mother again!”
Hailey looked at Aisha in an incredible manner. Since small age she had repeatedly made Aisha’s life a hell but was never hit or beaten by her. Moreover the unacceptable part was that she couldn’t even react!
Is it because of the secret combat arts of the Dragon King?
Anger surged and burst out from her heart as Hailey clenched her fists. Her body slightly trembled: “D-do you dare to hit me? Why is it that you can call father ‘that man’ but I can’t call her ‘that woman’? She gave you all the best to you but nothing to me. You were born with the awakened blood power but I didn’t even get anything!”
“I had nothing since birth! I was called ‘witch’, why? Why did all that happen to me? It’s because I didn’t have the awakened blood power!”
Aisha coldly looked at Hailey: “You should find those people and get account from them why they call you so! But never call my mother as that woman. It’s the last time that I’m giving you a warning! If I hear you say that word again… I will kill you!” A strong killing intent burst out from Aisha’s body when she said the last sentence.
Hailey suddenly woke up as she felt the killing intent. She knew that this time her sister wasn’t joking but…really meant it!
She bowed her head as she bit her lips. Hailey felt humiliated and couldn’t wait to study the secret combat arts of the Dragon King.
“Do you know how mother died?” Aisha looked at Hailey.
Hailey had never seen her mother so she couldn’t even recall her appearance. All that she knew was that her mother had died soon after giving birth to her.
“Of course you don’t know.” Aisha continued: “Because mother was the wife of the patriarch and no one dares to mention the cause of her death! Do you know why they refer to you as ‘witch’? Because you were born the day mother died!”
Hailey was stunned.
Her birthday … is mother’s…
Could it be that……
“It was because of dystocia. It wasn’t a dystocia that an ordinary woman faced. The situation was urgent and she couldn’t be healed.” Aisha coldly looked at her: “The priests said that they could only save one! And that damned heartless man choose to protect you!”
Hailey was hit like a lightning as she stood on spot.
“That man is always with you on your birthdays.” There was a trace of moist on Aisha’s eyes: “Why do you think I never attended your birthday? Because who would accompany our dead mother? That man was afraid that you would know about the situation when you grow up so he buried mother and prohibited others from visiting the tomb! His purpose was to let other to forget about this matter!”
“However …I’ll remember my mother even if everyone forgets about her! I’ll always remember her!”
Hailey mind was blank as she stared at Aisha.
“It was mother who entrusted you to me before death and asked me to take care of you.” Aisha continued: “Why do you think that I would fall to the same small tricks again and again for so many years? You took away everything that I cherished! I let them go. But only the identity of saint I kept. Do you know why I stick to it?”
Hailey looked at her in a confused manner.
“Because you are weak!” Aisha looked at her eyes: “Because you are soo weak that if you were saint then it would bring nothing but harm to you! You never believed me. I told you many times but you never believed me. You always thought that I’m afraid of losing this identity… Do you know why I went to the outer wall nine years ago? It was because my patience was at the limit! ”
“I never wanted to be a saint!”
“All my childhood was spend in the dojo. The first thing that I did was to wake up every day and practice. Practice and read… The secret arts… ” Aisha looked at Hailey as if she was mocking her: “You said that you have mastered all the ordinary combat arts. I mastered them when I was 7 years old. They were engraved deep in my marrows by then!”
Hailey’s pupils contradicted.
Seven years old? Master ordinary combat arts…
How could it be!
Hailey was full aware about the difficulty of ordinary combat arts. She had learned all of them and was proficient in them by the age of 13. It took her 2 more years to make sure that she acts on instinct…and could be considered as a master.
Seven years old … What kind of costs Aisha had paid to do such a feat?
Aisha looked at Hailey dull expression and slowly said: “You can be regarded as a qualified pioneer as you have awakened the blood power. You can barely step into the wasteland. I have completed the task that mother had entrusted me. I will no longer obey the obligations that I have promised to her.”
Aisha took her bag and passed by Hailey.
Hailey’s mind was blank as she was processing everything that she heard from her sister. She came back to her senses as she heard the footsteps from behind her: “Why didn’t tell me these things before if it all was truth?”
Aisha’s voice echoed out: “Because I hoped that you will have a good childhood.”
By the time last word echoed Aisha’s figure disappeared from Hailey’s sight.
