Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 248
There will be a day where she will willing stay in his arms without trying to escape. Not knowing that her husband had nearly blackened yet again, XunMi was busy observing Lika. So this was the empire’s recognized number one beauty. En, she truly was eye-catching. She had dazzling red hair that complemented her striking features. She was deserving of the title.
“Anson. Did you need something?” August walked towards the three with one hand on XunMi’s waist. He wasn’t exactly happy to see him.
He still needed to buy XunMi shoes. Couldn’t they see that she was still barefoot right now? Why were they obstructing their path?
Anson saw through his friend’s mood saw spoke quickly. “August, are you here to shop? Let’s walk and chat.” He took a secret glance at the girl in August’s arms. He was both stunned and confused. How has he never seen this beautiful purebred mermaid before? Had she been hidden away before?
August led XunMi forward. Everywhere they passed was filled with sounds of cheers and screeches.
At first they were for August. Then, when the crowd saw XunMi, the sounds grew louder.
“Who is that purebred mermaid? Major general Ludovic is protecting her.
“Such a beautiful purebred mermaid. When she walked passed me, I felt blinded for a second!”
“Me too, me too! I really want to know her!”
“As expected, looks matter! My male idol, I will suffer and give you up to that little vixen in your arms!”
Even after watching the group enter a nearby department store, the people outside were still unable to disperse. They all found a place to pass the time, preparing to wait until the male idol reappeared. They weren’t done watching the show. They wanted to admire more of their male idol’s style.
August first went to the shoe section. He sat XunMi down on the soft recliner and went off to select a pair of comfortable and fitting shoes.
Only now did Anson realize that the purebred mermaid was barefoot. Her tiny feet were smooth and pale, restlessly kicking the floor below her.
XunMi’s eyes roamed around. She thought the surrounding decorations were very strange. They weren’t too different than the set up at department stores from her world. But there were no humans here – just robots. Everything was smart shoppers, there was a self check out area and then the option for delivery for purchased items.
“Hello, I am Anson, a friend of August’s. May I ask for your name?” Anson politely took a seat across from XunMi and gestured for his two sisters to also sit down. He really wanted for those two to be aware of their current expressions. Was it really okay for them to use such an obvious and direct expression?
XunMi tilted her head and sized up the man across from her. The man wore a white suit. He looked elegant and put together. But due to his long habit of smiling, his aura also had an added layer of gentleness. He was someone that gave everyone a favorable first impression. He had his charm.
“I am XunMi Thetis.” She smiled softly. Even though her veil hid her smile, the upward curve of her lips still had Anson defeated.
Angela and Lika both had hostility for this mermaid that popped out of nowhere, especially because she was so pretty. Most importantly, she stole away Major general Ludovic’s attention! ! !
“I’ve never seen you before. How do you Major general Ludovic?” Angela played her role as the empire’s princess elegantly. But her upturned chin couldn’t hide her arrogance.
“What’s your relationship with Major general Ludovic?” Lika followed with another question. The two worked in harmony, without even giving XunMi a chance to respond.
“Thetis? I don’t think that family exists within our empire. Is it from some other smaller planet? What is your motive for suddenly appearing in front of the major general now?”
“….” XunMi looked a bit helpless.
Anson was confused too. John and the other deputy generals were also shocked. Wow, how could they say so much without even needing to take a breath in between.
When August returned with the shoes, he saw a group of mixed faces. He took a sparing look around. Then, he knelt down and held up XunMi’s leg, helping glide her foot into the shoes. This time, even Angela and Lika were left dumbstruck. How could the aloof major general in their eyes be so warm and caring? They had very complicated emotions right now, all furrowing together as they looked up at XunMi. But their education told them that they couldn’t act inappropriately now, leading them to sit in silence.
Anson recovered from his shock. It seemed like August has entered the honeymoon period of a romance. Or else why would he do something that was so lowering of his status and fawn over someone else?
XunMi didn’t care about the other people’s expressions. She moved her feet around in the light blue wedge sandals.
It wasn’t an overly elaborate design. It felt comfortable enough. She nodded her head.
August received her message. He took off the pair on her feet and switched them out with another. After a few more pairs, the shoe shopping finally came to an end.
“August, I’m hungry.” XunMi lazily leaned into the recliner, watching August zip across the clothing store to buy her gowns.
She didn’t eat much in the morning. ~~~~(>_<)~~~~So hungry.
August’s movements came to an immediate halt. He stiffly turned around, his face covered with regret. “I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I forgot.” He thrusted the clothes in his hands off to a nearby robot worker. He pulled XunMi up from her seat and headed for the exit. “John, the nearest restaurant.”
“Mi’er, hold on for just a bit longer. We’ll go eat right now. It’s my fault, I was careless. I won’t do it again. Don’t be angry.” As they walked, August continuously apologized. His usually ice-cold face was covered in regret as he coaxed XunMi. “What do you want to eat?”
How could he make such a mistake again? No, he needed to correct this.
XunMi lightly shook her head. She leaned forward and gave August a kiss on the cheek. “No, I forgot too. En, I want to eat fish. A lot and a lot of fish. The delicious ones. And then fish dishes without fishbones.” Her delicate request highlighted her unabashed manner to the major general.
