Chapter 47 Death & Promise

  • “After months of being forced to serve the emperor, luckily or unluckily, I became pregnant. Yes, that child is you Ren. I became the empress after safely giving birth to a healthy son. However, I felt no love for you and definitely none for your father. I was treated as less than a human being and I felt less than one. I’m sorry…” she said as her voice shook with intense emotion.
  • “It’s ok…mother…” Ren whispered as he squeezed his mother’s hand a little tighter.
  • “When I look at you all I can think about is the hatred I have for your father and all that he has done to me, my people and our land. I thought as time went by, I would forget…but it was impossible. Every time he touched me; I was so disgusted I wish I could die. Whenever I saw your face, I was reminded by all those nightmares. Whenever I felt any joy from the luxuries that the life of an empress had to offer, I felt guilty towards those who have suffered and died…” she continued on.
  • “I couldn’t sleep. I couldn’t eat. I wanted to go home but I couldn’t. There was no way for the mother of the crown prince can return to a small town. Your birth became the chain and bounded me here, robbing me of my freedom. In the end, I decided to become a nun…” she said as tears streamed down her face.
  • “You did nothing wrong, mother. It’s ok…” Ren said comfortingly.
  • “I did nothing for you, I knew you suffered, and I just turned a blind eye. I don’t think I have the right to lecture you, but if you would listen then please just remember this…be kind, Ren. Live a happy life that benefits others. Don’t repeat the same mistakes that you father did. Unlike him and his wicked advisors, I believe that you have a good heart…” his mother said with conviction.
