Your Majesty The Merfolk, Hello (18)
Bai Weiwei smiled and said, “Yes, just walk like this, you’ve learned it!”
After she said that, she released his hand.
Wake couldn’t help but fold his hand, his light golden lashes fluttered, and his fingertips became cold again.
Bai Weiwei said, “I’ll cook something up for you.”
Wake had no objection upon hearing this.
She went to the kitchen and took Wake’s favorite fish out of the freezer.
This kind of fish is very fresh and thick, the meat wasn’t difficult to cut, but the bone was very hard.
It took a lot of effort for her to chop them up.
Bai Weiwei: “What’s with this fish, ah? The knife is going to break.”
The system sounded dully: “Add oil, add oil, add oil, for spirit add oil.”
Bai Weiwei: “…… Forgot the side quest reward. The reward?”
The first day she transmigrated, she was so scared of the pool of blood that she forgot to ask for it.
System: “Haven’t I given it to you?”
Bai Weiwei froze, “When did this happen?”
System: “Merfolk singing shield, ah. When the merfolk sings, you can automatically block the song without being affected.”
Bai Weiwei: “This broken thing is a reward?”
System: “What’s a broken thing? You should know that rummaging…… It wasn’t easy to get this, ah. Didn’t it save your life on the first day?”
Bai Weiwei: “Sounds reasonable, but wouldn’t it be better to get the allure of becoming the country’s most beautiful person, ah.”
System: “In every plane you’re beautiful, aren’t you bored of it, ah.”
Bai Weiwei: “Every day I stare at my gorgeous face, I’m happy enough to die. How could I be bored, ah?”
The thick-faced, shameless host has reappeared.
Bai Weiwei cussed at the system while struggling to cut that broken fish.
When the knife suddenly got stuck. She pushed hard but was unable to press it down.
Bai Weiwei’s fingers turned red. She paused for a moment to charge up her strength and continued to press on the knife.
One finger, with a faintly reflective nail, was placed on the fish’s body. In a gentle movement, the fish instantly became two smooth halves.
Bai Weiwei’s body went stiff. That finger lightly drew down again and cut the rest of the fish.
The fish fillets were as beautiful as if they were cut out by a machine.
Bai Weiwei turned her head only to see that, from who knows when, Wake was standing beside her.
He pursed his thin lips. His expression was indifferent, with a few slivers of laziness in his beautiful eyes.
It was as if cutting those fish was easier for him than tearing a piece of paper.
But Bai Weiwei suddenly sighed, “Wake’s so powerful, ah.”
Wake’s hands paused, powerful?
It was as simple as breathing, what was so powerful about it.
Wake looked silently at Bai Weiwei but found that her eyes were smiling and full of admiration.
As if she really felt that such a simple movement of his, was a very powerful thing.
Wake had a slight tickly feeling in his chest.
Which he later learned was the pleasant feeling of being praised.
Wake moved his fingers, clenched his lips impassively, and the fluctuations in his eyes faded again.
Then he picked up a piece of fish and began to eat it.
Halfway through, he seemed to suddenly remember something. He casually picked up another piece of fish and offered it into Bai Weiwei’s mouth.
This action was similar to charity.
Bai Weiwei’s smile was a little stiff, “Wake, I eat cooked……”
As she spoke, when she opened her mouth, the piece of fish was stuffed into her mouth.
Bai Weiwei, holding sashimi: “……”
Wake’s eyes suddenly narrowed, his eyes were cold and full of killing intent.
Bai Weiwei accepted her fate of eating sashimi like it was Japanese food.
TheWhiteBook’s Corner: That’s right, the system is just repurposing the same thing it uses to prevent Ye Yuxuan from telling Bai Weiwei about his dreams as a side quest reward. No real reward for romancing the worst supporting male lead in the series, what a jip! At least she didn’t have to dance with her butt hanging out.
Estee: I think all I’ll remember about this male lead is his eyes… his ice-cold blue eyes
Piper: Lol, I’m a mermaid story fan, but I thought BWW was gunna be the mermaid :'( Anyway, I think this side quest reward is one of the more helpful ones out of the series so far, for one, it saved her life, and for two, it made ML think that she was pure of heart, which helped him lower his guard to her.
