159 Part 2
There was no one to help her. Jang Ye Ri had thought that it was all her mother’s fault for making her grow so fast, have horns on her head, have different eye and hair color from others, her father ignoring her, and being tormented every day.
It had been about three months since Jang Ye Ri had not visited her mother, and Jang Ye Ri had gone up to see her. While her mother would look at her, unlike other times, Jang Ye Ri had not understood what was behind the gaze.
Jang Ye Ri threw stones or objects at her mother outside the iron bars, and as her mother could not move, she had just stood there and let herself be hit.
Jang Ye Ri did not remember what she had said then, and her mother would not have understood any of it since she did not speak the human language.
However, the meaning must have been conveyed, as her mother’s gaze had been cold. She reddened in anger, and she was staring at Jang Ye Ri now. Jang Ye Ri had not been the only one who hated, and her mother hated her also.
What her mother said after slowly opening her mouth was still stuck deep inside Jang Ye Ri’s chest, and it showed her mother’s hate for her.
Her mother died a few days later. Jang Ye Ri did not cry and instead ran after cutting her horns. She escaped from her mother and others, and her father was happy enough to accept Jang Ye Ri as family. Her brother could not touch her again, more people took care of her, and there were no more strange experiments.
She had been happy at first, but Jang Ye Ri now knew what was going on as she grew older and learned things.
She had been an idiot. If she had thought a bit deeper, Jang Ye Ri would have known that her mother had not wanted her, and she had not been able to resist what had happened to her. Jang Ye Ri would have known that her mother had been in a situation as she was now. Jang Ye Ri now thought that she may have pretended not to know. Had she really been unaware of their circumstances? She tried to think of that time, but everything came out negative.
Jang Ye Ri had known, but she had just needed someone to hate. She bit her lips as she walked, as she was feeling the guilt that she had let her mother die like that and had left her race to cut her horns so she could live comfortably.
She had opened and closed her eyes, and now the guards were staring at her with vacant eyes. They were her brother’s soldiers and not the castle guards.
“What? Why is the lady here?”
“Fuck, you were told to kill all of them.”
Jang Ye Ri ripped them open with the Reaper’s Scythe, and it had been so fast that the stupid soldiers had not known what had happened.
“Trash who are not fit to live.”
Blood sprayed like fountains from them, and Jang Ye Ri walked between them.
Thoughts of revenge rang in her head towards the brother who raped her and the father who had killed her mother. She had waited for this day too long. She walked to see that her brother’s soldiers were against her father’s forces. She poured magic inside the Reaper’s Scythe to cut up everything she could see. The heads of those battling were separated from their bodies at once. They could not even scream before dying.
Jang Ye Ri smiled since it meant that she was coming closer to her dream. She finally arrived at her father’s room.
Since the room was perfectly soundproof with magic, she could not know what was going inside. However, Jang Ye Ri went in.
“Why are you here, my daughter?’
She saw a room filled with blood and corpses. She saw her father twisting Kim Huiyeong’s neck in the middle of the room. All of the corpses were either burst or twisted. They were high-class soldiers that were different from those she had seen outside. Also, Kim Huiyeong, who was hanging by her father’s hand, was one of the strongest in this city. She was not weak to be beaten like that.
The old man had been hiding his power.
“Please…let me live…King…”
“Your king is that idiot.”
Jang Ye Ri turned her gaze again, and she saw her brother shaking in the corner with one of his arms completely crushed. She did not open her mouth and instead raised her scythe with one hand. It would serve as an answer.
“You know that your father is merciless against enemies. If you do not want to share the same fate as your stupid brother, do not cross the threshold.”
With a crushing sound, Kim Huiyeong’s body twisted completely as a warning not to come inside. From when Jang Ye Ri was very young, her father was the subject of fear, and he still scared her. Jang Ye Ri thought this was similar to the time she agonized over cutting off her horns. She had already chosen the answer.
Jang Ye Ri closed her eyes and again repeated the words of hate inwardly.
She felt strangely comfortable, and she saw an evil and fallen monster instead of her father. Jang Ye Ri walked on, not as a human being, but as a demon.
