Michael sensed a horrifying aura, as soon as he had finished speaking.
Levi was furious.
Bloodline again? What freaking noble bloodline is this now? Also, how do they even divide humans? I don’t give a sh*t about all the other countries, but everyone in Erudia is born equal! Everyone has a head and two arms, don’t we? What? They have an extra one or something? And how is their blood nobler? It’s not like they bleed gold! Freaking hell, I will murder every idiot who talks about bloodlines from now on!
“Continue,” instructed Levi.
“It was obvious that your birth father’s family discriminated against your mother and they had refused to allow her to marry into the family. It didn’t matter that she was pregnant at the time. They refused to let her join the family, and they certainly weren’t going to recognize the child as one of their own. Your birth father’s family only had one mission after that; and that was to make your mother experience a miscarriage. They refused to allow the child to be born because, as far as they were concerned, the tainted bastard had no right to live,” relayed Michael.
Oh, so I was almost killed before I was born, huh?
“What happened next? Why didn’t my mom get an abortion?” asked Levi.
“Your mom begged them to let you live and fought to give birth to you. She had even claimed that she was willing to kill herself so that you could live. All she ever wanted was for them to let you live. Your birth father’s family later requested for your mom to kneel in front of their house for three continuous days. Only then did they agree to spare both you and your mother’s life.”
Levi felt tears swirling in his eyes when he heard that part of the story.
Every parent loved their child, and they would not abandon their child unless they didn’t have a choice in the matter.
There is no such thing as a heartless parent. Hell, even a cruel tiger won’t eat its own cub.
At that moment, Levi understood that his mother had never abandoned him. It was quite the opposite. She sacrificed everything for him.
Evidently, his mother’s greatest gift to him was his life and making sure that he had survived.
She would even sacrifice her life just so I could live.
“Mother…” murmured Levi as his lips trembled. He then asked, “What happened next?”
“Your mother actually knelt in front of the house, and the Gods showed no mercy. It rained heavily for three whole days, and your mother was drenched the entire time. She persisted and survived through it, but her body had also reached its limit,” shared Michael, who was also tearing up, as he recalled the painful past. Despite everything, she was still his daughter.
“After that incident, she was left with dozens of medical complications that couldn’t be completely treated. She aged a decade within three days, and her muscles would ache, every time it rained. The doctor said that the trauma her body had endured had shortened her life span by about thirty years…” admitted Michael, who couldn’t keep going.
“Mother!” blurted Levi as he clenched his fists.
