I Became the Villain’s Wife

Chapter 3: Of Breakfast, Punishment, and Marriage

uya Hari. Otherwise, I might not be able to see the sunrise again because of your stringent method of punishment. ”

”You really have the audacity to criticize my ways! ”

”Hari Hiraya, ” said Lakambini in a threatening voice. ”Today is a special day for our little Gaki. Don tell me that you will hurt his feelings? ”

”I apologize, mother. ” Hari bowed, and when his eyes met Amaras, he clicked his tongue and left.

They resumed their meal, and Amara almost gulped down a basket of pandesal. The food was delicious, and she couldn wait to eat lunch later with Gaki again.

If life had always been like this, she wouldn have planned to run away from the Hiraya tribe.

Amara was quietly drinking hot chocolate when Lakandula Hiraya and Apo Bagani Hiraya arrived.

According to Lakam in the novel, they are famous on the Ligaya continent.

Lakandula Hiraya is a muscular man, and despite his age of fifty-two, he is still powerful and can defeat a lot of monsters. He always stood regally, just like Lakam. He always had a stern face, and his body was full of tattoos that he mustve gotten during his days as a young katalonan. Everyone looked up to him because of his greatness. Not only that, he was also known for defeating the sea serpent, Bakunawa, at the age of twenty.

Of course, the Hiraya Patriarch himself would never disappoint his followers. Apo Bagani Hiraya is known for defeating Raha Sitan. According to the story, Raha Sitan became immortal using the mahika of kadiliman. And not only that, in a war three hundred years ago, he was the cause of the death of nearly ten thousand katalonans.

At that time, Bagani Hiraya was not yet immortal, so his win against Raha Sitan was pretty much a big deal.

Lakandula and Apo Bagani walked to their tables at the same time. Apo Bagani Hiraya looked to be at the age of fifty-four, but in fact, he was already at the age of three hundred and twenty-five. Even as an adult, his gait was still elegant, and his physique was still beautiful. And since he is the patriarch of the Hiraya tribe, of course he is very handsome. His hair was tied in a bun with a gold ornament.

On the other hand, Lakandula, in his fifties, looks exactly like Apo Bagani. If people didn know that Apo Bagani was immortal, they would have thought that the two were twins. They have the same height, the same way of walking, even the same style of hair. The only difference is that Apo Baganis face is friendlier, while Lakandula is serious.

They were both wearing gold -colored robes. In fact, all the leaders of the tribes wore robes, as if they were in their uniform. And they will really flaunt their robes. Often, their robes are made of silk, sagut, abaca, or any other expensive fabric that is sure to be even more expensive than Amaras life.

Meanwhile, the Babaylan and Asog also wear robes. Its just different in length. The Babaylans wear robes that are below the knee, while the Asogs wear robes that are up to their hips.

When the two leaders sat down at their designated tables, they greeted the people and threw in a few words.

After that, the people went back to eating. Amara was still anxious when Lakam stood up from his seat and went to Lakandula. Lakam was saying something to their father. And Amara only stared at them, pondering what they could be talking about.

After they exchanged a few words, their father turned to look at Amara. And in an instant, she saw how her father pursed his lips. Lakam also looked at her, and he just calmly nodded. Soon, her father talked to the Hiraya Patriarch, and Bagani Hiraya himself looked at Amara.

This is the moment she dreaded the most.

I think that scene is about to happen now!

Lakandula rose from his seat and started getting the attention of everybody. ”Fellow katalonans, I would like all of you to welcome our visitors from the Dalisay tribe, the Kalinaw tribe, and the Bughaw tribe. ”

Everyone applauded, while Amara braced herself for the news about her hand in marriage.

If she remembers the events in the novel correctly, the three tribes will have a competition to have her hand in marriage. But even before the official competition started, Amara objected to the marriage. Lakam dragged her out of the dining hall and severely punished her.

In this scene, all Amara needs to do is to object fast, like really fast, and then run away from the dining hall like nothing happened, preparing to leave the Hiraya territories before she even gets her punishment.

Lakandula started speaking again. ”Although we have three delegates present, the elders and I have come to decide that our only princess, the unica hija, shall be married to Agos Bughaw, the prince of the Bughaw tribe. ”

Although Amara prepared herself for the worst thing that could happen, But she didn expect that the scene would be so different!

How come whats happening right now is not similar to what she has read? She had always followed the plot–study mahika even if its forbidden, making a plan to escape the Hiraya tribe, and even wearing **ing pants!

And Agos Bughaw? Really? That arrogant guy who tried to kill her kuya Lakam and tried to forcefully marry Tala Kalinaw!

Come to think of it, in the novel, Agos Bughaw said that Raha Sitan had killed his future wife, who loved him dearly. Did he mean Amara back then? Argh, bastard!

Amara tried to drink her hot chocolate to calm herself down, but–

”And their marriage is set for next week. Let us all toast to this! ”

She spat on her drink and mindlessly exclaimed, so loudly that everyone heard her. ”Putangina? Why the ** would I marry that prick next week? ”
