Season 3

Episode 6

(Was I adopted?)

"Emily, you are so lucky,"  said Tina, as she patted the bunny in her arms. Tina looked at the bunny with a sense of eerie tenderness.    

The white bunny rubbed its face against her palm, not knowing that it was in danger. The next moment, Tina choked the rabbit's neck so hard that blue veins popped out from the back of her hand.    

The helpless rabbit struggled hard in her hand finding it hard to breathe. It kicked and squeaked desperately, but it wasn't able to break free.  

"My lady, here are the scissors..." 

Tracy said. Never did Tracy think that she would see such a scene when she handed the pair of scissors to Tina. Astonished, she screamed out from the top of her voice, "My lady! What are you doing?"    

Tina threw the dying rabbit to the ground and grabbed the scissors from Tracy's hand. She relentlessly stabbed the rabbit's soft belly with the scissors and cut it open.    

The scarlet blood gushed out in a constant flow, in time with the beating of the rabbit's heart. The blood flowed through her fingers and oozed under her hand, thick and strong, "Ah!" cried Tracy as she watched Tina's brutality with horror. 

She was so scared that she froze right where she stood.  

Tina glared at Tracy wrathfully as if she was displeased with Tracy for shouting out so loudly. "What are you shouting for? Do you want to be treated in the same way as this rabbit?" Tina yelled at Tracy.    Horrified, Tracy immediately covered her mouth with both hands, trembling with fear.    

Tina was gradually becoming more and more deranged. She felt no remorse or fear when she ripped open the guts of the rabbit and watched it die right in front of her eyes. If Tracy didn't misread Tina's expressions, she just saw a smile of pleasure on Tina's face when she cut the rabbit open. Her smile was so demonic. It drove shivers down Tracy's spine just thinking about it.  

instead he walked straight to Tina. Then, he squatted down beside Tina and asked in an extremely gentle tone, "Who has made you so unhappy? Huh?"    

Tina raised her head and looked at Mark. She put the scissors aside and wiped the blood from her hands and said, "Emily came back safe and sound."    

How could she be happy at this news? After Emily's disappearance, Tina had hoped that Emily would die a tragic death, never to return again.    

Mark took out a clean handkerchief from his pocket and wiped off the blood stains on Tina's cheek and her hands. "Lately, you have been talking about Emily even more than Jacob,"  said Mark sympathetically.  

Mark didn't know whether it was a good thing or a bad thing, but he didn't want Tina's mind to be occupied by other people.    

With a look of disgust on her face, Tina sneered, "I don't like that bitch. No, I hate that bitch."    

As strange as it were, Tina's hatred from Emily even exceeded her love for Jacob.    

"Just be patient,"  Mark persuaded her tenderly. He continued, "One day, I'll make Emily and Jacob kneel before you."    

"Pfft,"  Tina snorted and smile coldly. "Buy me a few more rabbits. I want rabbits that are cheapest and of the lowest class,"  sneered Tina, and she continued, "I'll name all these rabbits Emily. Hah!"  

Tina wanted to cut open all those rabbits and watch them bleed to death. Then she would feed them to the wild dogs.    

Mark always did whatever Tina wanted him to do. "All right, I will buy you some more rabbits. Let's go inside and get some food first, okay? The chef has prepared your favorite dishes. You are so weak now. You have to eat more to recover your health,"     said Mark, as he stood up and reached his hands out to Tina.  

Tina grumbled lazily and said, "My legs are too tired."    

That was exactly what Mark had wanted. Mark looked at Tina indulgently and lifted her to his chest immediately. Then, he carried her into the house.    

Mark was extremely ecstatic. Ever since he found out that Tina was not the daughter of their parents, it felt like he had been given a new chance at life.   (VISIT FEATHERS. COM. NG)

Finally, he could be more bold about his love for Tina. Mark took care of Tina as she grew up, as he doted on the princess and fulfilled all her wishes. No one loved Tina more than him.  

Who the hell was Jacob? Who the hell were those rich men from Jingshi City? They were all lowly, vulgar and superficial men. No one deserved his dear princess!    

Mark, however, didn't plan on disclosing the truth about Tina. On the contrary, he wanted to keep this secret hidden with him.    

By keeping it a secret, Tina would still be the pride and joy of their prestigious family. She would still have rightful claim over their wealth, and she could keep her title as the lady of the Tao clan. As for Emily, who was probably his younger sister, Mark didn't bother to think about her.    

Throughout his life, Mark only loved Tina, even if Emily was the real sibling that he should take care of.  

Tracy looked at Mark and Tina blankly. She felt like something was wrong, but she just couldn't figure out what it was.    

'But... Why was the Master Mark spoiling Lady Tina unduly? Master Mark looked at Lady Tina with overindulgence, as if he would do whatever she would ask of him without hesitation, even if she wanted him to kill other people.'    

Suddenly, Mark turned his head around, almost like an owl and scowled at Tracy as if he had eyes at the back of his head and saw what Tracy was doing. "Why are you standing still? Clean up the mess there quickly!" said Mark.  

"Yes, Master Mark,"  answered Tracy. Tracy lowered her head immediately. She got a cloth and cleaned up the blood on the ground diligently.    

Soon the wind howled, piling up icy-white dust in drifts, blinding the night with snow. It covered the ground in a thick blanket of white, and rested upon the ground like a feather cushion soft and warm, concealing the dark secret.    


As time passed by, in the blink of an eye, it was New Year's Eve.    

Almost everyday Debby would go and secretly spy on Tina from a distance. The only difference being, this time she didn't have to keep it a secret from Emily.  

Emily didn't mind Debby visiting Tina, but just advised her to take care of herself. Nonetheless, she could never treat Tina as her sister after all the miseries Tina had brought upon her.    

It would be better for the both of them if they never found out that they were sisters. Tina didn't know the truth, and she... she could pretend like she didn't know neither.    

'I just need to stay far...far...far away from her, ' thought Emily.    

This was the first New Year's Eve after Emily and Jacob got together. 

Unfortunately, Jacob had to spend this New Year's Eve with his family and he could not bring her to his family home.  

Jacob had to spend every New Year's Eve and every Spring Festival in his house where there were all kinds of people and all kinds of unpredictably dangerous situations. 

He didn't want Emily to be in danger, so he decided to keep her away from his family.    

The clock would soon start a new cycle and a brand new year was just around the counter.    

However, Emily was not interested in this years festivities at all. She sat blankly on the balcony and watched the fireworks in the sky. 

After a while, she peeked into the living room, only to find that Debby had sneaked out of the house, while Andrew was sitting in the living room, watching TV and drinking on his own, laughing out loud from time to time.  

"She must have gone to visit Tina again," murmured Emily, looking a little disappointed. How could she don't mind her mother caring more about another person than her? 'Was I actually adopted?' Emily couldn't help thinking.
