DemiGod Among Calamities
CHAPTER - 6
”What might be the reason for your visit kaiga ” Leo said facing the visitor. The visitor was none other the descendent of the blind swordsmen, kaiga cego. ”I was intrigued by your performance earlier and I was here with a request ” he replied. ”Oh and what might that be ” Leo asked. ”I was wondering if you could spar with me time to time.
Others might think that your movements were awesome at best but only a martial artist can only see their true essence.
Your movements were just like a gust of wind or a current of water devoid of any disturbances.
That kind of expertise can only be achieved through a long period of hardship….. ”
Kaiga kept rambling all those words while Leo was getting drowsy hearing all this.
Everyone thought that what he showed today was the fruit of his past hardships but for Leo this was the first time he did this. What he just did was analyzing his surrounding and created a best escape route. But this was already on the level of an expert and if they were to here that he is able to do it right off the bat than they would be nothing but startled.
Kaiga kept on rambling until Leo interrupted him and said ”everything is good and all but you do know I have a limit that I can surpass on my own without any affinity for any element at least ”.
Leos word seemed to work as Kaiga finally stopped his rambling and started to process things again with this new factor in mind. After a moment he said in bland words ”that means you are really a trash ”, but soon realizing that he thought out loud and started making excuses and finally left and went back flustered.
Leo was neither happy nor sad, he had already accepted his fate and only think he could think at the moment was getting out of the orphanage and getting himself settled in the house he has been allotted. He entered the orphanage only to receive another barrage of mocking and inequity.
The kids who used to be with him almost the whole time were staying as far as they could. Apparently news travels fast as the news of him being a trash has already been spread around the village. That was not something that bothered him though what was more troublesome was a widespread rumor.
Some people had started talking that he was CURSED. It seems that someone revealed that Leo was found in the abyss of the holy land which probably resulted in him being a cripple. Even Leo was shocked because even he himself didn know about where he was found and who his parents were.
Ignoring all the other chatters he rushed to the orphanage elder and also their god father.
Inside a shabby looking office an old man who looked to be in his 80s (but was several centuries old) was smoking something similar to a cigar. He was having a sweet and nice nap until he was forced awake by a delinquent. ”ELDER GURUUUUU…. ” Leo was rushing towards his office shouting out his name.
He didn even show courtesy to his elder as he entered inside the office without permission. ”Tell me is what I am hearing true, am I cursed, you found me in the abyss of the holy lands and thats why I am a cripple… ”. He kept on blabbering until he was stopped by elder gurus big cough. ”Ahem, Leo my child what have I taught you until now that you have to first ask for permission to enter inside the office and to not shout in the corridor ”.
Leo soon realized that he had broken several rule of orphanage and was only awaiting a severe punishment. Since this was his last day he should have left the orphanage but he still hasn finished the formalities to leave. So, the rules still apply for him and so do their punishments. ”In just some mere seconds you have probably broken rules which are enough to punish you for 3 weeks with 30% of daily food. But today happens to be your last day here then I should give you punishment equivalent to whole 3 weeks ”. Hearing this Leo gulped down the dry saliva before replying ”this child understands his mistakes and is ready to receive any punishment ”.
Seeing him elder guru was having a feeling of pity because today his most loved hatchling which turned out to be a cripple was leaving the nest.
He then guided Leo to the backyard of the orphanage to begin his punishment.
”For starters lets start with 100 runs around the field and 1000 pushups with no break ”. Leo once again couldn help but gulp down the dry saliva because every day he faced trouble to finish even the 20 rounds around the field while doing 300 pushups was his limits. And here he was being asked to do 5 times of that.
But there was no room for argument since elder guru was looking at him with a piercing gaze while saying ”get on with it already ”…..
