A pregnant lady had kneeled under the heavy rain for three continuous days!
How strong did she have to be, to kneel for so long under those circumstances?
She had gone through all of that, just to protect her child.
That was unimaginable and unbelievable.
A weak woman would turn strong when she became a mother. That was just how a mother was.
She was merely an ordinary mother amongst the thousands of mothers on Earth.
It seemed that parents could transform into heavenly angels when their kids were threatened.
A parent would keep the sky afloat just to shelter their children. There are no gods in this world, but there are plenty of regular parents who would do anything for their children.
Michael wiped his tears aside and continued, “In the end, your birth father’s family kept to the end of their bargain, to allow both you and your mother to live, but they had one condition.”
“Huh? What was it?” asked Levi.
“You were allowed to be born, but your mother must not have been one who would raise you. Instead, you were to be abandoned, to the street, and your mother was not to contact you at all. Their reasoning was simple. The kid must not have been traced back to their family. They had cut the ties from the source so that you would remain nothing but an orphan, abandoned by both of your parents. Your mother had to agree to their terms so that you could live. After giving birth to you, she abandoned you at a random spot. We didn’t think that you’d end up on the streets of North Hampton, adopted by members of the Garrison family who had lived there.”
“Mother…” whispered Levi as he clenched his fists.
He stomped his foot in anger, and the marble floor under their feet had cracked. The spider-web-like pattern spread across the floor, until every inch was practically shattered. The scary bit was that over a hundred men could stand on the floor without damaging it, but Levi’s stomp had managed to do as such.
The mere sight of Levi’s strength surprised Michael and the others.
Is he even human?
Levi was touched to know that his mother did so much just so he could live.
It could be said that she had dedicated her entire life to him.
They hadn’t seen each other in decades, but that only happened so he could merely survive.
He truly believed that his mother was living in a random corner of the Earth, missing him dearly, everyday.
She must miss her birth son a lot, especially after such a long while.
“What happened to my mother afterwards? I’m guessing that the Garrison family of Oakland City wouldn’t have allowed her to leave that easily?” asked Levi.
“You’re right about that. To keep your identity a secret, they had to remove all traces of your existence, and the same goes for your mother. The Garrison family hated loose ends. What if your mother showed up at the family manor one day or suddenly decided to announce her existence? The Garrison family didn’t want that to happen, and they refused to risk it!” informed Michael.
“So? What did they do?” demanded Levi as he held his breath.
Michael replied, “They imprisoned your mother and allowed her to rot there. To make matters worse, she was imprisoned for life and she was not allowed to take one step out of that place!”
