Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 253
Sorry for the late updates! My laptop just completely stopped working so I can only write whenever I’m able to borrow a friend’s laptop. ? Anyways, on with the story!
If this was on the battlefield, it was obviously which side was going to die. “Everyone, retreat.” August handed XunMi over to John. He pulled up the screen on his wristwatch and chose his mecha. A two meter pitch black mecha immediately appeared out of nowhere. An aura of oppressing pressure and killing intent filled the air.
In the front of the mecha was a large emblem of a large eagle with its wings spread wide, as if prepared to soar at any moment.
August climbed onto the mecha without hesitation and connected his consciousness with the machine. The mecha then suddenly aimed at the bugs. Before XunMi could see how it happened, a rumbling sound echoed before the large bugs fell crashing to the ground.
A layer of dust thundered upm, hurling into the throats of those nearby. Coughs sounded throughout the room.
XunMi dropped her jaw in shock. Her husband was so OP! Although it wasn’t a kill-all move, but he was still easily killing each bug in one move! That made the prior mech group fight seem like they were fighting with flowers as weapons.
XunMi didn’t know how to react to this.
John was already used to this sight. The major general’s mecha was the first 3S mecha in the empire, but the major general himself was the first person to be level 3S in both physical and mental strength.
With a wave of his hand, he had his men burn the bugs. They dozed the corpse with gasoline and set it in flames.
These things were fierce. As soon as one died, a new one birthed from its body. The only way to stop the process was to immediately burn them. But since this was the main way they evolved, it was why the bug clan hadn’t been able to invade the empire. After all, they were still relatively small in numbers.
“Let’s go home.” August jumped out of the mecha, returned the machine back into his space storage and reached for XunMi’s hand. As for cleaning up the mess he left behind, that was John’s task.
XunMi warmly leaned towards August and obediently followed his steps. August smiled with satisfaction. His mermaid should of course rely on him.
To be honest, XunMi completely understand her husband’s personality. As long as she coaxed him a little, he would be the calmest, most even-tempered person there is. By the time the two returned home, it was already very late at night. August helped XunMi bathe and massage, before both headed to sleep.
‘Three women can make up one entire play’ was not a false adage. Anson Eyre arranged for Betti to stay in Angela’s quarter of the palace. He thought that since they were all pure mermaids, they should easily have commonalities and become friends. Moreover, he didn’t have time to actually watch over a mermaid. He more important things to do.
Angela slept early, so didn’t even know that her palace quarters had gained an additional mermaid. She didn’t know that this mermaid was even prettier and more rare than her.
Therefore, when Lika woke her up to discuss how to obstruct Thetis from entering the academy, they both saw the unfamiliar mermaid swimming freely in Angela’s pool.
Betti also didn’t expect to see two beautiful mermaid strangers. But she was confident that, with the exception of XunMi, no one could compare to herself. Therefore, she happily took the initiative to greet them. However, the two of them didn’t even respond to her. Instead, they just stared at her as if they had seen a ghost. Only when a maid stepped forward to explain the situation did they recover.
Betti also finally understood the two’s identities. One was a royal princess. The other was the king’s sister’s daughter. Perhaps it really was because like-minded people repel each other. At least, the three of them didn’t get along well.
“What house are you from? Are you another one of those trying to latch onto the royal family? Tsk, tsk. So shameless.” Angela and Lika stood side by side facing their new enemy.
There were no outsiders here. Now they could finish her privately.
“Do you think that you can enter the royal family just because you have a red tail? Do you honestly think we’re the garbage collection group?” Angela continued. She hated nothing else in the world more than those that were prettier than her. Especially those that had no status or background.
Betti could see that these two were jealous of her and felt a sense of satisfaction. She didn’t respond to their insults. In her heart, she thought ‘You think I don’t have any status? My status can scare you to death.’ If not because she still had a bit of reason, Betti would definitely act with disregard to keeping the peace between deep sea mermaids and humans. After XunMi returns to the sea, she’ll tell Anson the truth about her deep sea mermaid identity. Then, she’ll be the only one in the empire. She’ll never have to live in XunMi’s shadows again. As if she could already imagine her future, Betti couldn’t resist smiling.
But in Angela and Lika’s eyes, they saw her smile as ridiculing them. Ridiculing them for being less outstanding then her, and for them underestimating her.
The two immediately flared with anger. The jumped into the pool and swam towards Betti. Before Betti could react, face slapping and hair pulling ensued. Hands even scratched off scales on Betti’s red tail.
Resounding screeches could be heard through the palace. Even Anson researching in a hidden room could hear them. He quickly placed down his book and walked out. His eyes were filled with annoyance.
Betti never expected these two to be so malicious. Fish scales on deep sea mermaids were not just fish scales, but a symbol of strength.
Without thinking, she used a gust of wind to knock the two aside. She swam to a distance and checked on the injury on her tail. Seeing blood escape her tail, Betti erupted. She was about to use her wind powers against Angela and Lika again when she found herself unable to move. The pain on her face was also growing. What had happened?
“You bitch. Aren’t you strong? Now you’ve got no energy right? Humph.” Lika delightedly uttered. She threw the needle in her hands onto the ground. She carried these around always to prevent accidents and protect herself. Without even thinking, she had stabbed the drug into that mermaid’s arm.
“Now how are you going to defend yourself? Angela, go grab her hands. Today, we are going to teach her a lesson.”
Angela smiled mischievously and slowly approached. “If you didn’t have this face, who knows if anyone will even look at you.”
Betti panicked for the first time. Her eyes were filled with fear. She can’t have her face damaged. XunMi, Your Highness, save me.
XunMi sat up in her bed. Something was wrong with Betti!
