TEMPTING FATE - Chapter 173 - 173 Chapter 173: The King Plead
173 Chapter 173: The King Plead
Reed and Avery find Becky and Anton to be lifeless. At the same time, Marina was floating 20 feet in the air and was surrounded by black smoke, which went into her mouth, nose, and ears. Avery and Reed looked at the man standing in front of the yard. He was trying to break the shield that Reed had made. There are cracks in the shield, and if he doesn’t do anything, the shield will definitely be destroyed.
Reed looked at Avery, then at Devin and Alex, Eve’s enemies at the time. But Reed’s eyes grew big when he saw a woman lying on the floor.
“E-Emy….” he said. “My queen.”
Reed couldn’t say what he was thinking or feeling at that moment. When he saw what happened to Emy, he felt sad. He just disappeared from Avery’s side, and the girl only saw him next to Emy.
Reed held Emy’s body and touched her face.
He felt like he couldn’t catch his breath for reasons he couldn’t explain. It was the first time he had ever felt that way. She dripped liquid onto Emy’s face. He could no longer hear his wife’s heart beating.
“Dad..” Alex said. “That woman killed mama. I’ll kill her too.”
Reed turned toward Alex. “Alex!” Devin said.
He wasn’t expecting Alex to approach Eve. Devin quickly followed, but Reed stopped him. He can’t get up. He let Alex fight Eve.
“What happens?” Reed asked Devin.
“Didn’t you notice? The soul eater took Emy’s soul.”
“Why didn’t you protect her?” Reed sounded angry.
“I did what I had to,” Devin said.
“Did it? If you did something, Emy wouldn’t have gotten to this point.”
“Accuse me all you want, but think of the prince. The prince, who is now fighting the killer of his mother.”
Reed looked at Alex. The truth is that he has no plans to help Alex any longer. Emy, who was the only thing he wanted, is now gone.
“To protect Alex, Emy used her body as a shield. Emy knows how important your son is to her.” Devin said. “If he doesn’t want to help me, I will help him.”
Reed looked at Alex and was amazed by how he used the strange light from his hand. If his hand has black power, Alex’s has white power. Devin started to step up and help Alex.
“Don’t take sides in the fight.”
Devin turned toward Reed. “It’s Dynhir to deal with, and I want you to kill him.”
Devin was stunned for a moment, then nodded. “I’ll turn him into dust.”
Reed’s shield was destroyed entirely, and its ashes flew everywhere. Eve and Alex stopped arguing. Dynhir talked to Eve, and Devin and Reed also spoke to Alex. Eve looked at Reed, a little surprised to feel his strange power.
“His power is back,” Eve whispered to Dynhir.
“Are you afraid?” asked Dynhir.
“I’m excited,” Eve said, smiling.
Devin was surprised when Reed touched him on the back, and he fell to his knees as he felt a strange pain that seemed to come from inside his body.
“What’re you doing?” Devin asked. “Ahhhhh!” Devin screamed loudly, and his black wing grew out. He didn’t know how to explain that strange feeling. He felt relieved, but intense power was running through his veins.
He looked at Dynhir and Eve, staring at him with unblinking eyes. Later, Reed let out black smoke and looked at Alex.
“Don’t fight, son. You don’t have to.” Reed said. Alex stared at him with a frown. “Your mom needs you. You can get her heart to beat again.”
“But I don’t know how to do that, dad.”
“Somebody will help you.”
Alex frowned but didn’t ask any more questions. Instead, he went to his mother. Eve immediately pulled a whip out of the black smoke and used it to attack Alex, but it suddenly disappeared before Eve’s power could reach Alex. Eve frowned, and that’s how Dynhir and Devin reacted.
“Oh, my son has a guardian angel…” Reed said that he then spread his black smoke into the air. At first, it flew to where Marina was. The black smoke surrounding his body disappeared, and he finally fell to the grass. No one knew if he was still alive, so Avery went right to help Marina.
Jasmin, on the other hand, came out of the house. She had a cut on her side, but it didn’t seem to hurt because she walked quickly to see Emy and Alex.
Reed turned to the white woman looking at Emy and then turned to him. Time he was stopped at that point. Reed frowned because he did not stop time. When he turned around, even Dynhir and Eve weren’t moving.
“You are going to save Emy, aren’t you?”
“What’s up? She’s my queen, and you have to save her.”
“We can’t play with the destiny demon. Emy, she’s a human, and she’s destined…”
“Stop!” Reed had a loud voice.
The woman raised her hand, and Reed went up in the air. She could feel him choking her even though he wasn’t holding her. Reed let out a puff of black smoke but could not blow it into the air. Something wrapped around his hand, and he couldn’t use his power.
“You want to fight the angel who saved you last time? Hmmm…”
“I want you to help me out,” Reed said. “My queen… she needs to live for…”
“For your sake?”
“For Alex.” Reed didn’t understand, but he was begging now, something he did not do or is doing.
Suddenly, the thing choking him disappeared, and he fell to the ground. The angel was next to him in an instant, holding his jaw.
“The proud king is begging me to help. Hmmm… are you human now?”
Reed didn’t answer. The angel let go of his jaw.
“Are you a kind person who knows how to love? Are you a person with your own feelings?”
“I don’t need to be human to choose for Emy to live. I know I’m cocky, but that’s part of what it means to be a king—to be feared and obeyed by others. I can kneel before you and beg for Emy.”
A few seconds later, everything suddenly moved again. She turned to look at where Alex, Jasmin, and Emy were.
“Where did they go?”
Reed was surprised when he suddenly jumped and hit his house’s wall. The stone broke there, and he fell onto the grass.
“Oops, broken,” Eve said. When she couldn’t find Alex, she frowned. “Where’s he?”
She turned to her side to look for Dynhir, but he wasn’t there. Instead, Dynhir and Devin are arguing.
“I am here.”
Reed’s hand was making black smoke that curled around Eve’s neck.
