Mending the Shadow By Elria Cortez Characters: 8728

Updated: 2018-12-25 20:31


Ken stayed in the room that he was assigned with the first time he and Kana were here. The difference now is that his movement was restricted by an iron chain that is tied at one cemented pole. It was connected to his right foot, and only allowed him free movement within the boundaries of 8 meters from the center of the pole. In short, he was confined inside the room.

Ken was lying on the bed, but he wasn't sleeping. Kana's disheveled state still haunted him whenever he fell into a slumber. So, he only managed to have a few hours of interrupted sleep since last night.

He has been thinking about her, and realized one thing.

Kana is precious to him.

His thoughts wandered again to her appearance that time. There was no doubt that Akihito had touched her. But Ken is not narrow-minded. Akihito might have touched her, but they could not be too sure if he claimed her.

He has to be sure.

He stayed away from Kana, not because he cannot accept the fact that she might have been ravished. It was because he might not be able to control himself to kill Akihito and hurt other innocent people from doing so.

When he woke up with the iron chain, he intentionally did not try to break free. He could have broken from the chain on that instant, but he chose not to. He needed time to compose his thoughts and calm himself.

At exactly midnight yesterday, he was visited by a Shadow.

It was No. 3, and Ken admired his skills at being able to enter his room without anybody noticing his presence. However, Ken knew that it was him when he stopped near his room.

"No. 2, the Mentor wants to know if you want to be released or not."

Ken's reply was definite.

"No. I am not a prisoner here. I will contact him soon."

The brief exchange lasted for mere seconds, and No. 3 was gone as fast as when he appeared.

After No. 3's visit, he decided to contact the Mentor. He sent him a message. A couple of minutes passed before he received a reply from the Mentor.

Ken's forehead creased in a deep furrow. A smile played across his lips.

'How could I even be your successor, Mentor.'

After that message, he was almost in a good mood. However, another thing crossed his mind, and he wondered whether it is the proper time for that thing.

His morning was spent with inner debate, and even though he planned to visit Kana after lunch, he finally succumbed to slumber after finishing his lunch.

----

On Kana's room, it was very silent. Seated on one sofa which is placed near a window, she absentmindedly looked at the colorful autumn leaves.

The contrasting colors and the

s face and arms were still very visible. His face was still swollen with Kirito's punches and his body still ached with the kicking that he received.

But he did not utter a single word of complain, nor repentance. He planned this action, and he was very well aware of the resulting punishment if everything won't go according to his plan.

The door creaked, and when he lifted his face, he met the dark and cold eyes of Hideo. His body instantly felt the automatic response to kneel and cower. Even with aching muscles and joints, he fell on his one knee.

"Master." He said, his voice quivered with both tension and guilt.

He had never wanted to betray the Master of the family, never. Yet, he could not possibly allow the next leader of the clan to leave the estate for a man who is not part of the clan. He acted on impulse, and now he will receive his retribution.

Kirito pulled out a chair and Hideo sat. Akihito could not bring himself to even lift his head.

'How could he even face the man who has been more than a father to him after he betrayed him?'

"Akihito…"

Akihito closed his eyes, the sweat from his forehead fell to the floor.

"Lift your face and sit on the chair. I want to talk to you."

Hideo's voice was emotionless, and his expression was frighteningly serene. With quaking muscles, Akihito sat on the chair opposite to Hideo.

"Look at me, Akihito." Hideo commanded, and Akihito followed.

The fear in his chest which threatened to rise earlier was swept back as he swallowed down. The Master's eyes felt like piercing needles in his heart.

"Master…"

"Tell me the reason behind your action, Akihito."

It was an order, and Akihito has no choice but to obey the order of the Master.
