Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack - Chapter 267
Quick Transmigrating Second Female Lead's Counterattack Chapter 267
At this moment, XunMi had a very complex feeling. She didn’t know how to vent the melancholy that had built up inside her.
Anson had been a tragic figure from start to end in this incident.
Perhaps for him, such an outcome would be a relief.
“Don’t think too much. He acted voluntarily. Naturally he wouldn’t regret it.” His voice warm and consoling, August hugged XunMi and rested his head on her shoulder.
Xunmi glanced at the burning flames again. “August, I’m going back to the deep sea. I might not return for a while. Wait for me, ok?”
August didn’t say anything. He just pressed XunMi against the window and kissed her ferociously. Not until the two people both tasted rust in their mouths did August release XunMi. He licked her lips clean of the red liquid, his eyes dark.
“Ten days. If you haven’t come back by then, I’ll go look for you.”
This was the maximum limit he could bear. After ten days, he didn’t know whether or not he would still have any reason left.
“Yes. I will be sure to be back within ten days.” How could I be willing to leave you for too long?
XunMi jumped down directly from the air, and in the instant she touched the seawater, her ocean-blue fishtail flew in the air in a beautiful arc.
The warm sunlight sparkled, decorating the azure water. She resembled the most bewitching sea nymph, at all times enticing one to commit crimes.
Once August was certain XunMi had left, he steered his mecha to return to the empire.
The royal family likely would not exist in the future, and there were many things that would remain for him to do.
Mother… Rest in peace.
He, August, would give his family’s mermaid a warm and peaceful empire, one without any restrictions, a paradise without any threats.
In the year 5200 of the Norman State, the imperial prince fought with all his might, but unfortunately perished in taking down the enemy. The end of the imperial line ended with him.
In 5201, the youngest major general in the empire, Major General August Ludovic, took up the position of Imperial Admiral. He declared that there would no longer be a royal family or military marshals; everyone would be equal.
Also in 5201, the Mermaid Protection Law was established. It emphasized that deep sea mermaids were humanity’s most precious treasure, and they must be respected and protected.
Angela and Lika lost the shelter of the royal family, and all those who had been humiliated by them previously erupted.
In less than a week, the two were tortured to madness, and they were admitted to the Mermaid Sanctuary.
Upon returning to the deep sea, XunMi saw the long-waiting Grandpa Tortoise and Ocean General.
The state of affairs in the sea were simple to understand. XunMi concluded that after the previous corrosive agents faded away, they also disappeared from the Sea Peoples’ bodies.
This was good. They would be fine once they woke up.
“Your Highness, you’ve returned.” Betti was happy to see XunMi.
Through life and death experiences, she had matured a lot. The deep sea was her home and would always open its doors for her.
Why hadn’t she not loved this home that would never abandon her? How stupid she’d been before.
Fortunately, she still had time to love this deep and beautiful ocean.
“En, are you okay?” She looked Betti up and down and found that her complexion wasn’t bad. She should be fine.
Betti turned around and smiled: “I’m already fine.”
“Let’s go and see the people first.” XunMi walked and spoke, “Grandpa Tortoise, the Sea People can walk freely on dry land in the future. If you want, you can also go ashore and take a look. Human culture is very mysterious and interesting. You will definitely like it.”
She believed that her husband would definitely enable the empire to show its most dazzling side after he made his revisions.
XunMi was looking forward to it, looking forward to the formation of a new country.
The Sea People were in good condition. The following day they all woke up.
XunMi took Betti and the Ocean General around the entire deep sea for five days.
Having not found anything dangerous, their hearts were at ease. After arranging things in the deep sea, XunMi took Betti ashore.
This time they did not have to worry about being identified as deep sea mermaids.
Walking around in a place where there had clearly been no change, yet the atmosphere felt different, XunMi sighed.
Her husband’s abilities in taking on tasks was really too strong, and with his powers to unify, the empire would surely be better.
When XunMi appeared, she drew everyone’s attention because she was the wife of Lord Admiral August Ludovic.
On the day that the Lord Admiral returned, the new law was promulgated, and it was announced that his wedding with XunMi Thetis would be held ten days later.
Today happened to be the tenth day. For those that had never seen the people involved, how could they not be excited?
XunMi was still in the clouds, and, pulled by the hand by Betti who was pointing at the mechas that were slowly descending from the sky, she called out, “WTF, what a big weapon, ah! I know this is a wedding proposal, but those who don’t know would think it’s a bride kidnapping!”
It was only the fact that hanging from each mecha was a huge sign with a character, which put altogether read, “Let’s get married.”
From this hard approach, she really had to think that her family’s His Majesty was robbing a wife.
Xunmi’s mouth twitched as she looked at the handsome man who dropped to the ground and exited the mecha with a constant smile in his eyes.
“How come I didn’t know I was getting married?” She raised her eyebrows at the man clasping the long white dress in his hand and played the tyrant, “What if I don’t agree?”
“No matter, I’ll just snatch one. The troops are at the ready. Well, there is only one bride left.”
“My beloved, Her Highness XunMi Thetis, are you willing to become the bride of your most devoted knight, August Ludovic?”
August knelt in front of XunMi, offering the white dress in his hand with a serious expression on his face, though his eyes were fiery and expectant.
XunMi raised her head to prevent the teardrops that were about to fall from her eyes, then reached out to stroke the gown in August’s hand.
From the beginning she was willing. She was always willing.
Even if time turned back, I would do everything I could to meet you.
To encounter one another in a sea of millions of people, we are both connected at a deep level with each other.
Husband, I am so lucky to meet you at the most beautiful age. How lucky I am to fall in love with you at the most beautiful age, and to be able to accompany you to the end together.
“Did you know? Falling in love with you is my greatest fortune in this life.”
August hugged XunMi tightly as if he possessed the entire world.
“XunMi, I am so lucky to have met you at the most beautiful age. You are the only one for me. I choose you to be my wife in this life, and hope you will wear this wedding dress.”
He knew that there would be bumps in the road in the future. But as long as they proceeded hand in hand, this life was destined to be everlasting.
XunMi, it’s not just you who feels lucky. I do as well.
“We were both very lucky to meet each other,” XunMi said as she laughed brightly. Her elegant face was as brilliant as peach blossoms in March. It’s unknown how many people would be fascinated by her eyes.
 Well that’s presumptuous.
 It is my understanding that the Chinese, “I’m willing” (我愿意) is equivalent to saying “I do” in the English. Just in case anyone felt the wording was strange.
 Peach trees typically bloom in March or April in Asia.
And that’s a wrap for this arc! Award for Character With the Most Growth goes to Betti. Next is an epilogue for Anson, then we are moving on to another world!
