She was not terribly surprised to learn that Zayn was around. On the contrary, she was very concerned and she instinctively bit her lower lips tightly.
A voice was heard coming from the crowd of people in the meantime. “Ezra Sword, I can see that you’re not that impressive. You claim to be the most powerful fighter under Invincibilis, but you can’t even find me.”
Upon hearing the familiar voice, Ezra’s expression grew even colder. He looked toward Zayn’s direction swiftly and found him in an instant…
His pupils constricted at once. It was not his first time meeting Zayn, but he never expected Zayn to have the audacity to show up here.
On the other hand, those standing around Zayn, who were initially very confused, were now mindblown upon witnessing the scene. The insignificant duo was completely astounded and stared at him in bewilderment.
They stared at Zayn, unable to form coherent words as a shiver ran down their spines and their breathing quickened.
Zayn turned around and smirked at them while saying, “I forgot to tell you that I’m that b*stard that you mentioned killed Raiden.”
Their bodies froze in place upon hearing that. They were shocked beyond comparison and their impression of him changed fundamentally. Any thought that formed in their heads evaporated into nothing at that moment.
Not only them, those people around them who had spoken to Zayn behaved as if they had seen a ghost in the meantime. They had never encountered an incident like this.
While Zayn walked out from the crowd of people, those who were in his way dispersed in a haste and they dared not stop Zayn at all.
Ezra almost had to squeeze these words out from his tightly clenched teeth.
He exuded his overbearing presence without the slightest reservation. A gale was conjured from the side of his body, making the 2,000 people at the scene scared out of their wits.
Anyone with discerning eyes could tell that Ezra had lost his temper.
However, Zayn was completely unaffected. As his gaze was tightly locked on to his mother, Hayley, he felt overwhelmed by emotions for a moment.
Longing, remorse, regret, anger, joy, delight…
He could feel all sorts of emotions roiling in his heart.
“Mom, I’m sorry for being late,” Zayn walked to Hayley with a heavy gait as if he was weighed down by a thousand tonnes and said in a guilty, shameful tone.
Hayley could not stop herself from shedding tears after seeing him. Zayn was her only concern in this world, and she wanted to see him so badly that she even dreamt about it!
However, she never expected that she would be reunited with her son under such circumstances.
“Zayn, oh, how you’ve grown. You’ve grown so…” There were so many things that Hayley wanted to say but could not bring herself to say it. Tears escaped her control and streamed down her face.
The numerous people at the scene were visibly moved by the scene.
In truth, the vast majority of people here were acquainted with Hayley. She was the previous Saintess and the most outstanding one in the history of the organization. They had never seen such a feminine, gentle side of the Saintess.
On the other hand, the parent-child relationship was the purest and most intense form of relationship in mankind that no one could separate themselves from.
Zayn got down on his knees before Hayley so that his mother could caress her face.
Sensing the deep maternal love radiating from her, Zayn found everything else he did to be worth it, and in that sacred moment, the missing part in his life was regained.
