Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 265
[Just tonight, without any warning, it happened suddenly. It started with the discovery of black water in the ocean. We thought it could be pollution from human emissions, nothing major.]
[As a result, everyone who came into contact with the stuff met with mishap, without exception.]
Betti had been healing her fish tail and hadn’t gone out, so wasn’t aware when it had first started.
XunMi looked grave. [I’ll return at once.]
“August, I must go back, the deep sea needs me.”
She had not been awakened by the Female Lead’s call. Rather, she had been roused by the crying of the sea.
In the dream, a wailing sound tugged at her heart, and when she opened her eyes she saw the flashing Light Brain.
“I’ll give you a ride.” August got up as XunMi got dressed, directly got out his mecha, and quickly carried XunMi through the night.
Within half an hour, the two arrived on the beach where they first met.
“I’m waiting here for you to come back. Don’t let yourself get hurt.”
Holding her in his embrace, August was as overbearing as ever.
XunMi nodded, “En.” She cherished herself very much and wouldn’t let herself get hurt.
Just as she turned around and was prepared to jump into the sea, the surroundings were suddenly flooded with bright lights, making the dark night bright as day.
Angus immediately protected XunMi in his arms, exuding a murderous air.
“Hahahaha, I guess it’s true. You’ll give everything for your people.”
The sudden voice was very familiar, a voice August and XunMi had heard just the night before.
“What, aren’t you surprised?” Andrew Ludovic stepped out of the darkness and immediately the troops surrounding XunMi and August made a path for him.
“Actually, I’m not surprised.” XunMi came out from August’s arms and stared at Andrew, the villain big boss.
In fact, the biggest villain in this plane was the man in front of them.
He’s not just over a thousand, he’s lived for at least two thousand years.
In order to live forever, he continuously studied ways to increase life spans, and finally put his sights on the bodies of deep sea mermaids.
First, he manufactured a series of events similar to a curse, then secretly replaced the deep sea mermaids as the ultimate experiment.
But she immediately pulled herself together. When she had been using her suggestion power on Andrew, she had felt then that something was a little off.
Then she deliberately showed her strength, and with just a little inducement, sure enough, she hooked a big fish.
August’s cold face was colder now. The grandfather in his eyes was completely unfamiliar.
“Was mother’s death because of you?” Although his mother was not a deep sea mermaid, she was also the only natural mermaid with abilities.
He received the news of his mother’s death shortly after he went to the border, that his previously healthy mother had unexpectedly been depressed and killed herself.
He hadn’t been convinced by this result, but he didn’t think too much. Now though, it looked like…
Andrew stroked his beard proudly, “It wasn’t because of me. She died because of you. Why do you think your mother could have the power of the deep sea mermaids? That’s to my credit.”
“It’s just a pity, she was never able to completely achieve the full strength of the deep sea mermaids. When she gave birth to you, the power transferred to you. As you became stronger and stronger, your mother became weaker and weaker. In the end, when you reached your strongest, she died.”
As Andrew’s last words fell, a roar echoed out.
“Bastard! Did my mother also die like this!?” Anson rushed out from behind, punching Andrew.
It was a pity that Andrew dodged and gave Anson a kick instead, causing him to fly far away.
XunMi quietly assessed the strength of the opponent. He was definitely not a 2S!
Either he had been hiding his strength all this time, or he had forcibly upgraded his strength through some secret method.
“Really weak. It’s obviously a graft of a deep sea mermaid’s power. Why can’t you catch up with August?”
Andrew looked at Anson in disgust. This was his most successful, but also most failed, product.
Anson gritted his teeth and got up from the ground. He had never hated so much.
At this time, XunMi’s Light Brain sounded again. Looking at the caller ID, her eyes darkened.
[Your Highness, we are almost overwhelmed. The deep sea is infected by this unknown substance, and none of the races in the sea are being spared.]
Grandpa Tortoise’s body slumped, and his old face was full of sadness.
Behind him, Betti and the Ocean General were busy giving first aid to those unconscious.
The whole palace was pervaded with an atmosphere of hopeless sadness.
[Grandpa Tortoise, don’t worry. I will make the ocean into a clear and warm place again.]
XunMi pacified Grandpa Tortoise, her delicate face shining in the night. Calm and at ease, she soothed his uneasy heart.
“World Tree, please hear my prayer. The azure ocean continues in my hands, and the inheritance of life is here.”
“World Tree, please let me sing a song for you. When the first glimmer of dawn draws near, the golden sun rises, we embrace each other together.”
XunMi sang with the unique charm of the mermaid’s voice. It bore a raspy seductiveness as well as an elegant grace.
She was surrounded by the golden light, and that person standing in the golden light looked like a deity who could not be profaned.
The voice spilling out from her vermillion lips repeatedly struck their hearts and souls, heavily and painfully.
The pitch black night sky, under the spreading of the golden rays of light, bloomed completely.
The originally clear water of the ocean had already turned jet-black. On top floated a thick layer of oil that was exuding a disgusting stench.
XunMi slowly approached the ocean which was weeping more and more. She felt as though she were looking at a wronged child that was complaining to her.
Her hand brushed across the surface of the water. Wherever it passed, the golden light sprinkled down, and the dark, filthy stuff disappeared in an instant.
With XunMi’s actions, the amount of scattered golden light increased, and the sea was quickly restored to its original cleanness and clarity at a speed visible to the naked eye.
August looked at the person in the center of the light, only deep infatuation and fanatical possession in his eyes.
This was his wife ah, no one could match her beauty.
Anson and Andrew were both stunned. XunMi’s capabilities were unexpectedly already so formidable.
Both men were excited. The former felt she could defeat Andrew and make him receive punishment. The latter felt that if he obtained this power, he would definitely awaken into a demigod. Not to mention immortality, living over ten thousand years should be possible.
As his greedy gaze stared at the mermaid wrapped in golden light, he gathered power in his hands, waited for his opportunity, and shot in an instant.
Bang! The force of the collision made a loud sound. The rays of light scattered, and Andrew fell in a dazed manner.
He pressed his hands to his chest where blood was gushing out. It was really hard to take. Stormy waves surged on his face.
“How can it be?! The power of three generations of Emperors of the Sea, how could you resist it?”
 Me too. She could have killed him and been done with this arc many chapters ago.
 For those curious, the idiom is 悲天悯人.
