Chapter 1070 - Family Drama II
"Mom, what is happening?" I asked, looking at these powerful people in the kitchen with my parents.
"Micheal come." Mother said as she beckoned me in, "This is your grandfather, aunt, cousins, and uncle." she said as she pointed towards the five people.
I shuddered a little when I found all of their gazes on me, their gazes may be normal, but they are from powerful people which itself held power, not to forget there are two inquisitive gazes from my 'Cousins' which are scanning through every inch of mine.
It is a very uncomfortable sensation, the one I did not like. My gaze couldn't help but harden a little seeing that. Cousins or not, it is very rude to scan one with their sense, especially this deeply.
My 'Aunt' seemed to understand what was happening when her gaze hardened a little, "Archi, Johanna, behave." she said angrily to her children. "Sorry, mother." Both apologized to their mother, not me.
"I am sorry, Micheal, for their rude behavior," she said, "It's nothing," I said, and uncomfortable silence spread across the room with no one having an idea about what to talk about.
"Is anybody hungry? I've made breakfast for everybody." said my father awkwardly; he is not good around people, especially unfamiliar, very powerful people.
"We would love to join for breakfast." said my Aunt; I could tell that two of my cousins had no wish to do so, but they joined without complaining after seeing their mother's eyes.
My father soon served breakfast, and everybody started to eat. I could tell that these people do not like breakfast, especially my 'Two Cousins,' what is delicious too is dirt to them, but they are eating it without complaint.
"Anna, the designer of Micheal's Runic Armor, is quite Indigenous, and his energy control is beyond comparison. Did you help him with that?" The old man finally asked.
"No father, except for manners, I did not teach Micheal anything." "Whatever he did, whatever he accomplished, he did with his own efforts." She said an unsealed pride could be heard in my mother's voice.
This seemed to startled five people very much, "Why did you not teach him anything? With your teaching him, his accomplishments would have been far greater than it is right now." My 'Aunt' asked.
Hearing the question, my mother's eyes hardened like never before, and I felt like the temperature of the room dropped several degrees. I had never seen such an expression on my mother's face, even when she was extremely angrily.
"Everything I know has come from Mistson; I don't want the slightest shadow Mistson in my son's life." " And, by the way, his present accomplishments are already enough for us to be extremely proud of him." Mother said as she gently pressed my shoulder.
Hearing that expression of grief and sadness couldn't help but appear on their face, they looked at the badge on their chest.
"So, you would not let him join the Mistson then?" The old man asked, "No." My mother said sharply, bringing down any discussion about that subject.
My mother really seemed to hate Mistson very much, and the hate she has is not normal either; her eyes literally blazed when she uttered the world 'Mistson.'
The breakfast after that was very long and uncomfortable. From what I had gathered through the conversations that were going around that my mother did not seem to be close with her family, and she had not seen them in twenty five years.
Twenty five years seemed like a very long time to not talk with your family; there must have been something big to stay away from her family for such a big time.
The painful breakfast finally over, and I hope these relatives of mine leave soon, so I could ask my mother what is really going on.
"Don't try too hard, boy, that boy from Sky Saber had accepted Level 5 Inheritance top of his Grade 12 Const.i.tution." "If it gets harder, just admit defeat." Said, old man.
"Father, you don't have to tell my son what to do! He understands that himself very clearly." my mother snapped all sudden as if he touched some bitter string.
"Of course, daughter, I have no right to advise you or your children after what had happened." the old man said with grief-stricken.
"I wish you good luck, my Grandson, for your battle." The old man said as he clapped on my shoulders before turning to my mother. "Anna, we have some important things to talk to, would tomorrow be fine for you?" the old man asked.
"Tomorrow would be a fine father." My mother replied without getting angry this time. "See you tomorrow, then." The old man said before disappearing with her family.
"Mom, are they really our relatives?" I asked, seeing what had transpired within the past hour; I am having a hard time believing that.
"Yes." Mother said with a sigh. I looked at my mother and thought about whether to ask the question I had in my mouth or not.
"We will talk tonight; it is time for you to know some things about me," she said, likely reading the questions I have in my mind. "Ok," I said.
I talked for a while before leaving the kitchen and walked toward the garden. The Champions.h.i.+p will start in forty five minutes. I want to reach there as soon as possible.
I had worked hard for the whole night, and now I couldnt wait to test the fruit for my labor. I now just hope that Edmond could give me some big surprise, pull out power equal to that of Ellen and Jill; it would be very interesting if he is able to do that somehow.
I still am not quite sure if my strength has reached the degree of Ellen and Jill, and I am really looking forward to finding that out.
Soon I reached the Garden where Professor and Eline had already been waiting for me.
