Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 255
The master bedroom door opened. August walked in. He looked up to find XunMi getting dressed in a rush. He walked over and helped her pull her hair out from under her top. “What’s wrong?”
XunMi didn’t hide anything. “Something happened with Betti. I’m worried.” As the god of the sea, she could sense the emotions of her people. Betti must have been injured. She could feel her pain.
August’s eyes flashed. His hand gripped XunMi’s. That Betti again. Why was that deep sea mermaid so troublesome.
“Ow.” XunMi gestured to her hand. How did she forget that her husband needed to be handled with care.
“August, do you know? I am a deep sea mermaid. I have my own responsibilities. But in my heart, nothing is more important than you. If I need to choose between you or Betti, I would choose you without any hesitation. Even if Betti was facing death.” XunMi said seriously. Her right hand caressed August’s arm, helping him relax.
She was a very selfish person. Even if she was actually someone that belonged to this current world, she would still choose her husband first.
August calmed down, loosening his grip and softly stroking her hand.
“Mi’er. I didn’t mean to. It’s my fault.” He lowered his head. She was the apple of his eyes. No one was allowed to her, not even himself.
XunMi held August’s hand, stopping his self-blame session. “August, if you feel upset when I’m hurt, you should also know that I feel upset when you are upset. But right now I need to go to the royal palace and take a look. Okay?” Speaking with a soft voice, her light smile easily placated August’s tumultuous heart.
“Okay.” He leaned down and helped XunMi into her shoes. He reached out for her hand and they headed out together.
Ever since XunMi ran barefoot on the hardwood floor yesterday, a layer of woolen carpeting now lined the floor.
XunMi knew this was done under her husband’s command. He was always able to notice all the little details and take good care of her.
While the two of them made their way to the royal palace, Betti was being rescued by Anson Eyre.
When he had arrived at his sister’s quarters, he had noticed all the servants standing outside. As soon as he entered the pool area, he noticed the thick smell of blood in the air. Hurrying over, he finally saw first-hand the situation in the pool.
The two younger sisters that he had always considered well-mannered were currently holding down Betti. They were pulling her hair, slapping her face, and even digging out the scales in her tail. The blood was slowly dying the water red.
With widened eyes, he shouted. “What are you guys doing?!” Betti was already unconscious. Her clothes were torn, her complexion was sickly pale, and her tail was now uncomfortable to look at.
Angela and Lika were busy teaching this girl a lesson. They froze when they heard the demanding voice behind them.
Slowly turning their heads, they saw their brother/cousin standing glowering down at them. Immediately, they lowered their heads.
“Guards! Go call over an expert from the mermaid research institute.” Anson Eyre calmed himself down and instructed the nearest guard. He walked into the pool and carried the unconscious Betti out.
He didn’t expect things to turn out like this. How was he going to explain this to Thetis and August?
His mind immediately conjured the image of the incomparable young lady. She had such a noble and aloof aura, yet still held a warm glow around her. Just as you thought she was a warm figure, she would reveal a cuter, more playful version of herself. Every side of her was alluring. Every second with her made people want to know more about her. She was always emitting this fatal charm.
XunMi and August arrived just before the mermaid expert from the institute did. Therefore, they were able to avoid Betti’s identity being exposed. The two arrogantly strided into Angela’s palace without being stopped.
XunMi followed the smell of blood. When she arrived outside of Angela’s quarters, her expression grew cold. Betti had lost a lot of blood. That was the reason why the thick smell of blood still coated the air even now.
The first thing she saw in the quarters was Angela and Lika sitting in their seats with unbridled anger.
XunMi didn’t have the time to put up with them. “Where’s Betti.” The smell of blood became even thicker here, especially since the two had Betti’s blood on their hands. She had a brief urge to kill these two. XunMi could already guess what had happened.
But why didn’t Betti defend herself? Based on Betti’s personality, she would never allow this to happen to herself.
Angela and Lika were already in a bad mood. They had just been lectured by Anson Eyre, who even said that he would punish them. Now this hated mermaid popped back up. In the moment, they had already forgotten about their image.
“Who the hell are you? Why are you questioning us? I’m the princess, get out.”
Lika also wanted to speak up. But when she saw August, she didn’t know what to say. Just now they had only noticed the mermaid, they had completely overlooked Major General Ludovic. She couldn’t help but shudder. Control and power in Norma Empire didn’t actually rest in the hands of the royal family. Instead, the royal family and the military shared the power and control equally. The royal family was more than aware of this. Right now, Major General Ludovic wasn’t someone they could mess with.
“Do you want to repeat your words again?” August released his hand from XunMi’s waist and pulled out a white glove from his inner breast pocket, slowly putting it on. Seeing his movements, Angela and Lika both sat up straight, their hearts pounding. Major General Ludovic had a commonly known habit. When he was preparing to fight, he would wear a pair of white gloves. He thought directly touching those people would pollute his hands.
The two girls could guess what he was planning to do now. Nervously, they gulped.
XunMi laughed coldly. Stepping forward, she slapped them both across the face, dragging them down from their seats. She didn’t care about status. “Since your mouth is dirty, I’ll help you clean it up. You two better pray that Betti is okay. Or else I’ll make sure you learn what the price of provoking me is.” She squatted and leaned down to be at eye level with them. Her voice was low and unhurried. “You won’t be able to handle what I have in mind for you. But if you can’t handle it, I’ll make sure the entire royal family helps carry that burden.”
