When Emma and Zoey heard that Erwin wanted them killed, both of them panicked.
“Please spare my son, Mr. Braus. I’d never said that I wanted to leave Margo City. Heck, I wouldn’t even leave this courtyard!” begged Emma after kneeling before the man.
“Mom, what are you doing?”
Levi quickly helped his mother up.
“What if he spreads the information that you’re here or goes to the Garrisons? I can’t allow that to happen. My father would never allow it! Killing them is the only way to avoid complications,” insisted Erwin.
“Kill me if you have to, but please let my son live!”
Emma stood determinedly before her three guests.
“You’ve broken the rules, Emma. They’ll have to die.”
With a wave of his hand, dozens of Erwin’s men rushed inside with shiny daggers in their hands.
“Close your eyes, Mom. You too, Zoey,” instructed Levi.
The two women did as they were told, and the frightening noises that followed only made them more afraid to open their eyes.
After a while, silence fell upon the scene. Afraid that something had happened to Levi, the two finally opened their eyes, only to see the other men lying motionlessly on the ground.
Staring at the unscathed Levi, Erwin was dumbfounded.
The man could not believe his eyes when he witnessed Levi crushing his men effortlessly. How can someone who had grown up an orphan be this powerful?
“Tell The King of Margo City that I’ll be waiting for him here. He kept my mother here for nearly thirty years, didn’t he? I want him to watch as I walk away with her,” commanded Levi calmly.
Erwin was stupefied by how arrogant Levi was.
Why would he want to do it in front of my father, The King of Margo City?
Levi glanced at the tombstone. “This is what you’ve used to keep my mother here for more than twenty years. I’m going to destroy it today.”
Levi broke the tombstone into pieces with a strong kick while Erwin and Emma watched on with widened eyes.
It had been almost thirty years since the Garrisons had erected the tombstone there, and it was finally destroyed that day.
Its destruction was a challenge to the Garrisons and the rules that they had set for the past few decades.
Erwin was so horrified that he quickly took off to find The King of Margo City.
“We’re in trouble now, Levi! The Garrisons will never let us get away with destroying the tombstone,” stated Emma.
