“Why are you here, Big Brother” Killua asked in fear.
“Because there is a mission that requires the hunters license, so I came here to get one.
The other reason is that our father told me to follow you.
I heard you hurt mother, so father asked me to bring you back to apologize to mother.”
Hearing this, Killua shook his head and said: “I, I dont want to go back.”
Illumi said: “Thats not something for you to decide.
This is Fathers order, and of course, mine as well.”
“I… I dont want to go back there, dont force me.” Killua lowered his head and clenched his fist while struggling.
Illumi coldly said: “Killua, do you want to disobey Father and me”
Killua shook his head: “I respect Father and you as well, but I dont want to go back, I want to stay with my friends.”
“Friends” Illumis eyes narrowed as he glanced at Kurapika and Allan.
Allan said: “Dont look at me.
Killua is mostly referring to Gon.”
Illumi looked at Killua and said: “Killua, you are an assassin.
You dont need friends.”
Hearing this, Killua hesitated before he said: “Dont you have friends as well, Big brother”
Illumi replied: “Are you talking about Hisoka”
“Yeah.” Killua nodded.
“Killua, I dont have a pure friendship with Hisoka, unlike you and Gon,” Illumi explained.
Killua lowered his head and whispered: “I really want to stay here, please dont force me to go back.”
Illumi heard him and said: “Dont disobey orders, Killua.”
With this, Illumi extended his hand, and instantly, Killua started trembling all over.
As if there were a pair of hands controlling him.
Illumi looked at Killua and ordered: “Killua, go take the airship back, and I will talk with father.
As long as you be obedient, father wont punish you, and mother will forgive you.”
Kurapika was scared when he saw Killua.
Illumi was going too far, and he couldnt just watch this unfold without doing anything: “Hey, what did you do to Killua You are his brother, right Why does he seem so afraid of you”
Illumi looked at Kurapika and asked: “Are you his friend too”
“I think I am,” Kurapika replied.
Although he didnt know Killua for that long, they still got along well.
Illumi snorted coldly: “If you are his friend, then please stand aside obediently and dont interfere in our familys business.”
Kurapika replied in a deep tone: “I dont want to meddle in your familys affair, but Killua is obviously terrified of you, and he doesnt want to go back, if you are his brother, you cant force him like that.”
With a wave of his hand, Illumi sent a few needles into his body.
In an instant, Kurapikas entire body was paralyzed.
Seeing that Kurapika was injured because of him, Killua gritted his teeth and said: “Dont attack my friends, I will come back with you.”
Illumi instantly smiled and said: “Thats good.”
Seeing Killua being taken away by Illumi, Kurapika looked at Allan and said: “Allan, are you going to sit back and watch”
Hearing this, Allan frowned.
To be honest, he really didnt care about this.
After all, it was a family affair, and he had Nothing to do with it.
However, he knew why Killua is so afraid of Illumi.
It was mostly because Illumi planted a small needle into Killuas forehead to manipulate him.
But if Allan helped Killua, it would offend Illumi, and it wasnt worth it right now.
At this moment, the System interfered in Allans stead as it gave Allan the incentive.
[Ding! Make a Choice!]
[1: Help Killua take out the needle in his head and get rid of Illumis control, but you may offend Illumi.
Reward: Six Powers.
[2: Be a bystander, but you might lose Killua and Kurapikas trust.
Reward: Six Powers.
Allan sighed, he originally wanted to avoid this, but he decided to help now.
Although he might offend Illumi, Allan currently wasnt afraid of him.
Furthermore, with Hancock here, she is enough to kick Illumis behind.
But it was still not worth it to offend Illumi now, so he thought about a way to help without offending Illumi and getting the reward.
He looked up and saw that Killua was about to leave the room and directly flashed in front of them.
Illumi frowned and said: “Allan, what do you want”
Allan shrugged and said: “Nothing, but I just remembered that I have a question for Killua.
Can I borrow him for two minutes”
“No.” Illumi directly refused.
Allan knew that he would refuse, so he smiled and said: “Then, how about I exchange one favor with this You lend me Killua for two minutes, and one of the favors is dropped.
Is that a good deal”
Illumi thought for a while because, as an Assassin, owing others favors isnt good for business.
And now, he owes Allan two favors.
Since lending Killua would drop one of the favors for two minutes, its indeed a good deal.
He didnt have to do anything, and the favor will be written off.
He looked at Allan and said: “Well, just two minutes.”
Allan directly pulled Killua to the side and called Hancock to block the view between them, which made her think:What a terrible man, he wants this empress to block the view. But she still did it in the end.
Two minutes werent short or long, and thats all the time Allan needed.
He looked at Killua and said directly: “Killua, listen closely, I will help you get rid of your bothers control over you.
I hope you will cooperate.”
Hearing this, Killua said, puzzled: “What do you mean Are you going to help me deal with my big brother”
Allan shook his head and said: “No, Im going to make the long story short.
Actually, there is a needle in your head right now.
Illumi put it there to control you.
That is the reason you are so afraid of him.
Now, what Im going to do is help you take that needle out from your head, and your brother wont control you anymore.”
Killua was doubtful because he didnt feel anything abnormal at all.
As a professional Assassin, no one should know his bodys condition better than himself.
But now, Allan actually said that he had a needle in his head…
However, he knew that Allan seriousness, he believed him a bit, and he always wondered why he was always afraid of Illumi.
“Killua, do you believe me” Allan asked.
Killua nodded: “Although I dont understand this very well, I know you wont harm me.”
“Okay, then you do as I tell you to take that needle out,” Allan said.
“So, where is this needle exactly” Killua asked.
Allan said: “The needle should be in the center of your eyebrows.
It shouldnt be too deep.
Use your Hand technique to sharpen your fingers and look for it.
However, be careful not to insert it further and cause brain damage.”
Although it seemed impossible to remove a needle without surgery, Killuas assassination skills were superb, and it wasnt that difficult for him.
After all, he could easily remove a humans heart with his bare hand without said opponents knowledge.
Killua took a deep breath and started looking for the needle inside his forehead.
After a few seconds, Killua whispered: “Found it.”
After finding it, Killua removed it in less than two seconds and raised his hand in front of him to look at the golden needle.
“Is this the needle that Illumi inserted in my head” Killua asked with surprise.
Killua knew that if it werent for Allan, he wouldnt even know about this needles existence, let alone remove it.
Allan checked the needle using Gyo and found a lingering Nen from Illumi.
“Yes, this needle controls you and dominates you.
It makes you feel fear toward Illumi.
But its okay now since you removed it.”
Killua nodded and looked gratefully at Allan: “Thank you, I wont forget this favor.”
Allan waved his hand, gesturing that it was okay and he was welcome.
At this time, Allan heard the Systems voice that he came to enjoy.
[Ding! You successfully helped Killua take out the needle from his head, freeing him from Illumis control.
Reward: Six Powers.
After learning how to use Rankyaku, Allan looked at Killua and asked: “Now that the needle is taken care of, you still want to go home”
Killua nodded: “My family is a bit special, I did sneak out this time and injured my mother in the process, so I have to go back and apologize.”
“Okay, take care of yourself.” Allan didnt say anything else as Hancock said: “That man is here.”
Allan looked up and saw Illumi arrive.
He looked at Allan and said: “The two minutes are up.
I will take Killua now.”
Allan shrugged: “Go ahead.”
Killua cooperated with Illumi.
He was surprised that he didnt fear Illumi like before.
Although he was still fearful, it was his instinct warning him, Nothing else.
Of course, Killua didnt show it.
He acted very obediently, or else Illumi might discover what they did.
Killua believed that Illumi would put another needle again.
That is the reason why he decided to act as if he was still under Illumis control for the time being.
He wasnt worried about being discovered by Illumi, as the latter would only use that needle when Killua is disobedient.
And as long as Illumi doesnt use it again, he wont know that Killua has taken it off.
“Goodbye, Allan, Kurapika.
Please tell Gon that I bid him farewell.
I hope we meet again in the future.” Said Killua before leaving.
He gained a lot from his trip, he managed to get a hunters license, becoming a professional hunter, and he also made friends, which made him satisfied.
After seeing Killua leaving with Illumi, Allan took Hancock and left.
Kurapika frowned and asked: “Allan, what did you say to Killua Although he still followed his brother, he didnt seem as afraid as before.”
Allan was surprised by how observant Kurapika was as he managed to pick the little changes in Killua.
After all, even Illumi didnt notice the change.
Allan briefly explained how he helped Killua take out the needle Illumi used to control him.
Kurapika frowned and said: “I didnt think Killuas brother is such a terrible guy.
He actually wants to control his brother like that.”
Allan shrugged and said: “That guy is a super bro-con after all.”
