I Became the Villain’s Wife

Chapter 4: A Hiraya Woman\'s Destiny

e, his face terror-stricken at the sight he was beholding. The katalonans curiosity and anxiety increased when they witnessed that the Hiraya Patriarch himself looked scared.

If Apo Bagani Hiraya feared the black butterflies, then this is no laughing matter. Something dangerous must have come.

Amara was also puzzled about how a group of harmless butterflies seemed to scare the Hiraya Patriarch.

But it was then, when her mother, Lakambini, suddenly shouted, ”One black butterfly is already bad. But a kaleidoscope of it? May the gods have mercy on us! ” Amara realized what everything meant.

She immediately felt the same chills she had earlier when she heard the unfamiliar voice of a man that called out to her.

And she is not misled by the fact that these butterflies are the main symbol of Raha Sitan!

In the novel, a black butterfly is a sign of bad luck; either someone will die, or someone will rise from the dead. It was also believed that a kaleidoscope of black butterflies was always associated with the Apo Mumbaki. It is said that those black butterflies are the souls of the mumbakis who died during the war of light and darkness. And even in death, they are still working for him and causing chaos across the continent.

Amara also frowned when she realized that this particular scene didn happen in the novel. Not once did Raha Sitan expose his presence in front of Bagani Hiraya as well as in front of thousands of Hiraya tribe katalonans. Well, unless it concerned her since Amara Hiraya is related to the curse.

W-wait a minute. Does this mean Raha Sitan has already gotten out of prison? Does this mean he is really out to get her?

This can be it. I have to leave this place now. I should not meet him, or else I will really die in this world!

”H-How? ” Lakandula stammered as he stared at Amara in horror.

Bagani Hiraya immediately composed himself and calmly asked, ”Amara, what have you done? ”

Amara suddenly stood up and stepped backwards while the butterflies still clung to her, never letting go. She was also afraid and in a state of shock, thinking that the villain was now on the loose, and that her untimely death was about to possibly take place in a few hours.

Bagani Hiraya was looking at the butterflies with so much contempt, as though he recognized them at just one glance. However, he was still calm as he spoke again, ”Amara, this is something inauspicious. You need to get married by tomorrow. ”

Amara wanted to show her middle finger to Apo Bagani, but she stopped herself from doing so. She already has enough bad deeds in this world, she can be so bold anymore.

And she was still terrified with the butterflies clinging to her as though they were naturally glued to her in the first place.

”Are you hurt, my dear wife? ”

That chilling voice again!

Amara tried swinging her arms to shoo away the butterflies, but the more she did, the more the voice kept talking in her head.

”Your father had hurt you. Should I kill him now? I do not want my wife to get hurt by her own family. ”

”Stay away from me! ” Amara shouted from nowhere. She felt like she was about to go crazy in front of her family, but she didn mind. She went on to exclaim, ”Do not call me your wife, I will never accept you as my husband! ”

Lakam held her by the shoulders. ”Amara, what is happening to you? ”

”Kuya Lakam. ” With the butterflies still sticking to her skin, she grabbed Lakam by the arm. ”Apo Mumbaki is speaking in my head. I can hear him! ”

”Calm down, ading ko, there is no way Apo Mumbaki would speak to you. He is currently sealed in an earthen jar. ”

But the chilling voice spoke in a playful manner, ”Oh but I am speaking to you, my dear wife. ” And in a whisper, as though he was just standing beside her, he said to her, ”I will come for you, Amara, I will take you away from here. ”

Amaras tears started streaming down again as she screamed out of pure terror. ”NO! STAY AWAY FROM ME! ” She pushed Lakam away from her and started running outside the dining hall.

She didn mind her unmannered strides towards the residences. She didn mind the people gaping at her covered in black butterflies. All she was thinking was that she needed to escape. She has to leave this place immediately!

”You can never run away from me, my dear wife, ” the voice said again. ”I will find you even at the end of Maharlika. Even if you hide among the gods in the Gunita Continent, or hide among the immortals in the Tadhana Continent, I will always find you. Not even Apo Bathala himself can help you hide from me. Mark my words. ”

Instead of getting scared, she only got angry at him. ”Gago! Leave me alone! I don want to marry you! ”

What did he think? That she would happily marry an old man like him?

Amara lunged towards her closet and ransacked her clothes to find the bag of gold coins that she had saved up to escape. Along with the bag is a map of the Hiraya territory, with lines marking ways where she could escape.

As soon as she got what she needed, Amara went towards the door to leave. But as soon as she opened her door, she saw a little boy who was about little Gakis age, standing in front of her.

”Who are you? ”

”Greetings, princess Amara, ” the little kid said with a bow. ”I have come to escort you to Apo Bagani. He is looking for you. ”

”What do you mean, Apo Bagani is looking for me? I just got out of the dining hall. ”

Something about this kid makes Amara nervous. She feels as though she knew him and was very familiar with him, but she can remember where she met him.

Its even stranger that a Hiraya follower like this kid would wear a black robe and a bright red bandana on his head.

It took Amara a full five seconds to ponder.

Oh no.

Amara hastily took a step back as soon as she realized who this little kid was. He is no ordinary kid!

The little kid seemed to have noticed Amaras shocked expression, so he smiled smugly at her. ”So you know my true form? As expected of Apo Raha Sitans wife, not even the other Hiraya bastards recognized me ”

”M-Manong Luban? ”

She couldn help but scold herself in her mind for her stupidity. ”Amara, you fool! How could you even forget the one and only character who unleashed Raha Sitan? ”
