Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 251
Anson Eyre could see the doubt in XunMi’s eyes. He angrily retorted, “Don’t underestimate me. Besides August, I am the strongest in the entire empire. If anything happens later, just stay behind me. I can make sure you won’t even lose a hair.” He was actually underestimated by a mermaid. How…unjust.
John silently turned his head away. This was the first time that he’d seen the prince forget to maintain his gentle image. He had never seen such a…lively side of the usually warm and polite prince.
XunMi reluctantly agreed. But she really wasn’t counting on Anson to protect her. When anything happened, he probably wouldn’t even have that spare time. It was better for her to just stay alert. In the meantime, XunMi picked up BaoBao, who was invisible to the rest of the world. XunMi laughed menacingly, “BaoBao. Explain to me. What exactly is happening in this world?”
With his tail spiked up, BaoBao peered up with pitiful eyes. [Madam Host, this really has nothing to do with me. World consciousness did this! I wasn’t here earlier because I was investigating this situation.] BaoBao felt wrongfully accused. After getting more power as a main system, he didn’t know that many things would change. For example, in this world, the bug clan wasn’t supposed to appear until one hundred years later. Meanwhile, although he was supposed to have shot up the military ranks, August was still just a major general. The bug clan appearing in the Norma Empire was also due to the world consciousness.
BaoBao sent the related information to XunMi and patiently waited for her to digest it. [Madam Host, my energy is almost all out. I need to sleep for a while. If you need me, just call for me!] BaoBao yawned and returned to the space void for a long slumber.
XunMi tapped her fingers on her lap. It seemed like the empire would be overturned sooner or later. But for her, she was a human first and then a mermaid. In terms of her priorities, it was always her husband in first place, and then the missions. Coincidentally, these bug clans were obstructing her.
So she needed to get rid of these things first.
“The next item up for auction is a rare purebred mermaid. Distinguished guests, don’t worry. Her identity is clean. No family or backing. You can do as you please. The starting price will be set at ten million. Every addition needs to be at least one million higher. The announcer in a clear white mask declared in a proud voice to the audience. As he spoke, a pedestal rose from the ground, holding a large cage. The cage was hidden behind dark cloth. After speaking, the announcer pulled the cloth off. The purebred mermaid then appeared to the audience. She had red hair and a red tail.
Perhaps due to ill treatment, her hair was currently a mess. Her complexion was sickly pale. Due to dehydration, her scales were missing their shine. But even in her current state, the female lead’s beauty was still obvious. She easily matched the beauty of the acclaimed number one beauty Lika.
The crowd began to murmur with excitement. Rose colored tail! That has never been seen before. Moreover, that beautiful face made her precious to every man.
“Am I dreaming?” Anson thought that the surprises today were coming one after another. He was sure that there had never been a red tailed mermaid in this empire before. What did it mean for her to suddenly appear right now?
Taking a look at the woman in August’s arms, he wondered what it meant that they appeared suddenly on the same day.
XunMi pouted. “Prince, you can slap yourself. Or I can humbly do the honors. If it hurts, then you’re not dreaming.” Anticipation sparked in her peach blossom eyes as her hands twitched in preparation.
August grabbed XunMi’s little hands and wrapped them securely between his large hands. He glanced at Anson. He was always trying to grab his Mi’er’s attention. No, he needed to throw that deep sea mermaid to Anson as a distraction.
“Anson Eyre, that other mermaid is XunMi’s friend.”
“That’s right. I came to the empire this time because Betti disappeared. I came to find her. My family clan is a bit secretive. If not because of such a big issue, we usually don’t even come out. But I’m pretty sure the royal records should have all of this written down. If you are curious, Prince can check the history.” XunMi finished for August.
“Is that right?” Anson still felt like something was weird. But seeing the two’s sincere expressions, he believed them.
“Let’s act now.” August watched as the auction reached its climax. Some of the people in the other private rooms all stepped into the main hall out of curiosity.
This was the best opportunity.
John quickly contacted his men using his screens. It was time for the men waiting in the shadows to emerge. In the large hall, amongst the group of people crazily bidding, some suddenly felt an urgent vibration from their wrist screens. They immediately threw down their auction numbers and pulled out their laser guns to fight. The small guns were compact and stealthy, a new invention coming from the military. On the way in, of course there was a security check. If anyone brought in a dangerous weapon, the warning alarm would sound.
However, no matter how advanced the detectors were, they couldn’t beat August’s army. He had many kinds of talents on his team, including those who could shortcircuit the machine for a tenth of a second.
Therefore, when tens of military men pointing laser guns appeared in the hall, the rest of the auction house was still confused. What was this?
“Grab all of them. No one at this auction house is getting away.” John walked out of the private room and ordered.
His words immediately made the rest of the people understand the situation. This development was too fast! The next second, screams and curses ripped through the room. Most of the people here didn’t arrive alone. They had their bodyguards surround them, hoping to escape amidst the chaos.
