Nikki couldn’t bear to see anger in Dustin and the others’ eyes and wanted to leave.
“There’s no rush. The show’s just begun,” Edith sniggered.
“This bastard insulted us and hurt Brittany. There’s no way I will let him off so easily.”
Dustin knew too many secrets, including the Jade Maiden Scripture. Edith was determined to keep the information inside the scripture to herself. No one else could have it.
So, she must kill Dustin.
“Madam Edith, you promised me you wouldn’t hurt him.” Nikki suddenly felt uneasy.
Although she had betrayed Dustin, she didn’t want to see him hurt either.
“Really? I don’t remember promising that, though.” Edith feigned ignorance.
“Nikki, if blood makes you queasy, you can leave first. I won’t blame you for that.”
“Madam Edith, you wanted the scripture and have it now. Please let him go!” Nikki begged, aware that Edith intended to kill Dustin.
“Nikki, you should know that you’re a Jade Maiden Sisterhood disciple, so you should only be thinking of us.
“I’m happy with your achievements, so I’ll teach you some Jade Maiden sword techniques after I’ve learned them.
“For now, you’ll have to prove your loyalty in front of everyone.” Edith grinned slyly.
“How?” Nikki was taken aback.
“Kill that bastard for me!” Edith pointed at Dustin, looking furious.
“N-no, I can’t!” Nikki took a few steps back in shock.
Dustin saved her life. She couldn’t repay him like that.
“If you kill him, I’ll make you my chief senior disciple. How about that?” Edith persuaded.
There was nothing she loved more than seeing lovers hurting each other.
“I don’t want to be the chief senior disciple! I don’t want to kill anyone!” Nikki frantically shook her head.
“Are you defying me?” Edith was pissed.
“Please don’t make me do that, Madam Edith! I just can’t!” Nikki fell to her knees.
“Tch! You useless piece of trash!” Edith’s face hardened.
“What’s so hard about killing a man?”
“I don’t want my reward anymore, Madam Edith. I don’t want anything! Just please don’t force me to kill someone.” Nikki wailed pleadingly.
“Shut up! I want you to kill him no matter what, or I’ll kick you out again!” Edith threatened.
“Hurry up, Nikki. Don’t disappoint Madam Edith again.”
“She’s right. Men are nothing but hindrances. You shouldn’t keep one!”
“Killing men isn’t a big deal anyway.”
“Don’t tell me you’ll defy Madam Edith for a man?”
A few of the Sisterhood disciples began taunting Nikki.
To them, men were nothing but servants meant to serve them. Their lives meant nothing to these women.
“What are you waiting for? Pull out your sword!” Edith roared.
Startled, Nikki drew her sword shakily.
“Go and kill that bastard right now!” Edith yelled.
“I’m sorry… I’m sorry…” Gripping the sword with shaky hands, Nikki approached Dustin. hesitantly as tears streamed down her face.
She was like a puppet whose sole purpose was to fulfill Edith’s orders.
Dustin couldn’t help feeling disappointed in her. He never expected her to listen to Edith and try to kill him.
It was clear that this was how Nikki planned to repay his kindness.
