Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack - Chapter 252
Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 252
The chaos at the scene benefitted some. August led XunMi towards the cage at the center of the stage. With a flick of his hand, his mental strength cut off the chains. The door of the cage swayed open. Betti immediately transformed her tail into legs and ran out.
“Your highness.” Before Betti could through herself at XunMi, she was held back. It was the man that had just saved her. So handsome!
August frowned. This deep sea mermaid’s love struck expression was really ugly, it was an eyesore.
“Mi’er. Let’s go. We’ve already found her.” August led her through the chaotic crowd. As for that other mermaid…She has feet too, she can find her own way out.
Betti pouted. What was up with that man and her highness?
Anson stood to the side deep in thought. Although all natural mermaids were treated with respect in the empire, but there was never a tradition of a mermaid calling another mermaid ‘your highness’. Especially since Thetis had said she came out to find her friend. Then, this mermaid shouldn’t be referring to Thetis as her highness then.
Unless Thetis’ identity was so honorable that even pure mermaids had to show respect. But how likely was that? Perhaps he really did need to go back and investigate the royal family annals.
“I heard Thetis calling you Betti. Then Betti, you can leave with me first. It’s messy here.” Anson Eyre warmly smiled. He protected her behind him and followed in XunMi and August’s direction.
XunMi and August hadn’t gone far from the auction house. They had both felt the slight vibrations from the ground. XunMi guessed that it had something to do with that large bug.
The reality was, because of the battle between auction goers and military men, the smell of blood had splattered. With only one floor separating them, the bug had probably smelled it too.
When Betti saw XunMi waiting for her outside, her good mood returned. She stepped forward and lightly called, “Your Highness.” She had complicated feelings about this queen of the sea. As a twenty-first century person believing in equality, she was shocked to wake up in this world with social hierarchies and where power defined social class. In the beginning she was panicked. After she realized her new identity, she was then thankful. At least her identity as a deep sea mermaid was noble and received everyone’s love.
As a normal person, Betti definitely felt a bit of vanity after going from ugly duckling to white swan. But reality was also cruel. When this sea queen told her of the history between deep water mermaids and humans, she didn’t know what to think. She obediently learned how to control her powers from the sea queen. She also understood that this was no longer the world she was familiar with.
Here, you could lose your life at any moment if not alert, even if you were a deep sea mermaid. But the extended time living the underwater life bored her. She wanted to walk on land again. So, she ran away.
But as soon as she got to land, she was taken here. At first she panicked. When she discovered that her powers hadn’t been obstructed and that those people only thought of her as a natural mermaid, and not a deep sea mermaid, she relaxed.
She thought that she could just use this as an opportunity to get familiar with life on land. After whoever buys her, she’ll just run away. And then she’ll find someone to back her up.
Isn’t that what happens in the movies? As long as she had a backer, there was nothing to be afraid of. But before she could find a backer, the queen of the sea found her.
Betti didn’t want to go back into the sea. Not only was it lonely there, but she was always envious there.
She had thought that she was definitely the most beautiful. Yet she saw a female that even shocked her with her beauty.
XunMi Thetis was the noble queen of the sea. She controlled all of the sea. Even though Betti was a precious and rare deep sea mermaid, she wasn’t the only. She was just the number two. Betti really couldn’t stand it there in the sea.
“Are you done playing around?” XunMi lightly smiled. Her expression was soft. She patted Betti’s head. “It’s time to decide whether to stay or to leave. Betti, you must know that this isn’t a place we should be living. At least, not now. Do you understand what I’m saying?” XunMi still hoped that Betti could live well. After all, she had known her for over a hundred years. That’s why she had never restricted her.
In the sea, besides XunMi, Betti was the one that was always treated with immense respect. But Betti still seemed restless, always looking for adventures. XunMi knew this but couldn’t help her.
Betti raised her head immediately, excitedly she asked. “Can I not go back? Can I stay here?” She wanted to stay, so that she can finally be in the spotlight.
XunMi sighed. Of course. There was no way around this. “You can. But during this time, you can stay by my side. When you are done with Norma Empire, then you will leave.” This will be her last time helping her. She’ll have to decide for herself what future roads she wants to travel on.
Betti wasn’t completely happy with this. But she still agreed.
August was even less happy about this. He immediately rejected. “She can stay with Anson. There’s no empty rooms at home for her to stay in.” His meaning was obvious. He won’t allow anything that would take up his mermaid’s time and attention to appear.
As a background character that was suddenly called on, Anson instinctively nodded his head in agreement. Only after nodding did he think something was wrong.
“August, what kind of joke! Your house has no more rooms?!” Who would believe it. Even if he didn’t want to, he could just send her to the Mermaid Protection Bureau or find a better excuse.
“The rooms are going to be used to construct pools and resting areas for Mi’er. Also to store the things she likes. There’s no more rooms.” August very seriously. He had already planned everything out. The backyard had already been dugged up to start constructing the pool. He was going to bring in sea water for her. Besides the master bedroom, he planned on remodelling all the rooms in the home.
Anson, once again being fed dog food, now refused to speak with August anymore. Today was really his unlucky day. Anson kept reminding himself to stay calm, stay calm. If media agents were here today, the headlines for tomorrow would be:
#What has caused the warm and elegant big prince to break?#
#The Big Prince and Major General Ludovic have broken their friendship because of a mysterious mermaid!#
The other witness, Betti, tightly tightened her hands into fists by her side. It was always like this. As long as XunMi was there, no would notice her. She could understand it. After all, XunMi was beautiful, noble, graceful, and powerful.
But Betti still couldn’t resist. Her eyes flashed with pain and unease.
