Nikki rushed over to stop Edith. “Madam Edith, you haven’t recovered yet! Please stop!”
“Damn it, brat!”
Infuriated, Edith slapped Nikki across the face. “If it weren’t for the incomplete scripture you gave me, I wouldn’t have gone to extremes in training and gotten injured!”
“I-it wasn’t me… Nikki held her cheek and shook her head frantically.
“Stop lying’” Edith shouted.
“How did that bastard get his hands on the Jade Maiden Scripture? I’m sure you were the one who stole it and gave it to him. You ungrateful b*tch!”
“I didn’t!” Nikki denied anxiously.
“I see what you’re up to, Nikki Horst. You gave Madam Edith the incomplete scripture and gave that bastard the real one. You’re such a b*tch!”
“I thought you were a loyal disciple. It turns out you’re just a backstabber who betrayed us!”
“Enough with the acting. You make me sick!”
Instantly, the Jade Maiden Sisterhood disciples began cursing at Nikki.
They were sure Nikki must have conspired with Dustin and took the Jade Maiden Scripture for herself. It was a big crime.
“This is a misunderstanding!” Nikki tried to explain herself, but they refused to believe her.
Just like that, she became the prime suspect.
“Mr. Adler, hurry up and break that woman’s legs.”
Dustin pointed at Brittany, looking impassive.
“Yes, sir!” Cornelius jumped forward and swung his leg toward Brittany’s knee.
There was a crisp crack as Brittany’s knee bent backward, her bone fracturing from the impact.
“Aargh!” Brittany wailed as she fell to the ground in pain, sweating uncontrollably.
“Stop! If you hurt her again, I’ll make you pay with your life!” Edith snarled.
“An eye for an eye. She broke my men’s legs, so I should return the favor and break hers,” Dustin replied nonchalantly..
“Mr. Adler, her other leg as well.”
“Sure!” Cornelius sneered and raised his foot.
“I told you to stop!” Edith suddenly drew her sword and pressed the blade against Nikki’s neck.
“I’ll kill her if you do anything!”
Startled, Cornelius immediately stopped his attack.
“Madam Edith?” Nikki was stunned, looking in disbelief.
“Madam Parker, you’d kill your most faithful disciple?” Dustin narrowed his eyes.
“I’ve already kicked her out! She’s nothing to me now!” Edith retorted, lifting her sword.
The blade broke Nikki’s skin, causing blood to trickle out of the wound
“Why? What did I do wrong. Madam Edith? Why would you do this to me?” Nikki sobbed
She had remained loyal to Jade Maiden Sisterhood this entire time. She never imagined she would end up threatened by Edith
“Shut up Edith shouted
“Who the hell do you think you are? You’re nothing compared to Brittany!”
“So, you’re going to kill me because of Brittany?” Nikki’s voice trembled in shock
“Sacrificing you is nothing if it means saving Brittany. You’re just a pawn to me anyway” Edith snapped.
Nikki’s legs went weak. She collapsed onto the ground with a pale face, utterly disappointed.
She never imagined that Edith would be ruthless enough to sacrifice her
Did her loyalty mean nothing to Edith?
