Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 246
But there were still two days left on his vacation. Did it have something to do with the mermaid he had mentioned just now?
The man on the phone was John, a major in the military and serving as August’s deputy general. With an excited expression, he prepared to search for the mermaid. He really wanted to see what beauty the mermaid that his major general mentioned would possess. There were so many girls that wanted to marry the major general in the empire. But the major general didn’t take a fancy for any of them. Even the empire’s number one beauty, a purebred mermaid Lika, was infatuated with the major general. But the major general wouldn’t give her the time of day.
XunMi woke up. As she stretched lazily, she noticed something was wrong. This wasn’t the room she went to sleep in. What? Did she transmigrate again?
She quickly pulled up the system’s information. Oh, she didn’t transmigrate. Her husband had just moved her to the empire’s capital, Norma. The empire was known as the Norman Empire.
After washing up in the bathroom, she changed into a blue gown. After spending a few hundred years in water, she was already used to not wearing shoes. Therefore, without a second thought, she walked barefoot across the floor. She discovered that her husband’s house was huge. The design and style was all to her taste.
She carefreely walked and admired, not bothering to remember where she was going. As she turned a corner, she heard her husband’s voice.
“Yes, major general. The underground auction will begin bidding that purebred mermaid.” A man with a more hoarse voice responded.
XunMi leaned in. The mermaid they mentioned should be Betti. Does that mean the male lead is appearing tonight? No, she couldn’t let the male lead save Betti.
“Have the first squadron break up the auction house. John, you’ll be in charge.”
Not hearing a response, August raised a brow. He looked up from the documents on his table and saw what had distracted his men. The deputy generals looked stunned with their heads turned to the door.
August followed their gaze. His bad mood immediately changed to one of worry. “Why aren’t you wearing slippers? The floor is so cold. What if you get sick?” He immediately strode forward, picking her up and placing her back down into his original seat. He lifted her feet into his hands to help warm them.
XunMi’s cheeks turned light pink.
John and the others were shocked at this sight. After being by the major general’s side for thirty years in the battlefield, they had never seen this side of him. The usually cold as ice major general could actually treat someone so warmly? If they hadn’t seen this with their own eyes, they wouldn’t believe it.
“I forgot. Plus I didn’t see any shoes in the room.” XunMi argued and pouted.
“That’s my fault. I forgot to get some for you. Blame me. What kind do you want? I’ll buy it.” August self-criticized. How could he forget this?
He rubbed her small feet. When they were no longer cold, he stood up and carried her out the door.
As for the others in the room, he had long forgotten about them. What, were they more important than his bride?
“Tell me, was that a hallucination?” John rubbed his eyes, as if he had seen a ghost.
“Hehe…congratulations. That was no hallucination.”
“Go, let’s go see. But that purebred mermaid is so beautiful. She’s even more beautiful than the number one beauty.”
“Yes! No wonder the major general didn’t like Lika. He had his own beauty hidden away.”
John stood frozen as the others went to follow the major general. They wanted to watch? John could only pray for them. But in the end, he also couldn’t control his curiosity.
August carried XunMi into a luxurious floating car. Peering outside, she saw a setting similar to the online gaming world from before. There were smart devices everywhere, along with robots. The most important addition was that there were mechs here.
“August. Was the mermaid at the auction house you mentioned the one I asked you to find?” XunMi sat in August’s lap and pulled on his sleeve.
“En. She was captured and brought to the black market to be auctioned off.” August explained simply. He didn’t really want to explain in depth what kind of place the black market was. He wanted her to be happy without worry. “I’ll bring her back.”
XunMi nodded. She trusted her husband’s ability. But now that she’s thinking about it, why wasn’t the male lead’s name ever mentioned in the original work? In the book, he was always referred to as ‘General’.
How was she supposed to find him? (#‵′)(╯‵□′)╯︵┻━┻
“What are you thinking about?” August spoke with a calm voice, but XunMi still felt the need to be on guard. She was caught letting her mind wander off again.
“I was just thinking how I was going to send Betti back. August, I don’t know how much you know about the history between humans and deep sea mermaids. But I have to warn you. What humans owe deep sea mermaids, we will definitely get it all back.”
This was the first time August saw fire in XunMi’s eyes. The flames sparkled splendidly, so splendidly that he felt he couldn’t grab on.
He held XunMi tighter in his embrace, as if this would make sure that she could never escape. “I don’t care about that. All I know is that you are mine. Remember that. In this lifetime. In every lifetime, you are mine. You are my only. Forever my only one.” He didn’t know how long forever was. But as long as he existed, she could only be his.
XunMi raised an eyebrow and smiled. “You are so domineering. What am I going to do with you?” Even when her husband’s personality changed, she still felt attached to him.
When their floating car arrived in front of the business street’s entrance, it immediately attracted the attention of those walking.
The embed eagle symbol on the front of the car was a sign. The animal’s claw clutched a red rose, representing the family clan. They knew this was the sign of Norman Empire’s mythical war god, their youngest major general August Ludovic. The crowd murmured. Those shopping all stopped, deciding instead to join the crowding at the entrance in hopes of getting a glance at the major general. In just a few seconds, a full on traffic jam was created. Those inside couldn’t leave. Those outside couldn’t get in.
Because there was nowhere to land, the floating car had no choice but park in the air.
August contacted John so that he would arrange for some men to come organize the crowd. He came out to help his mermaid buy things, he wasn’t going to let that plan be delayed.
