Your Majesty The Merfolk, Hello (40)
It was too long, what he said was vague and difficult to understand.
Bai Weiwei looked really dazed, what language was this?
The system calmly provided a second translation: “I don’t disdain you for being an old, ugly, useless, and unappetizing human. The sea is different from the hideous filthy land you lived on. Allowing you to live in the sea is your honor, kneel down in gratitude, old woman.”
Bai Weiwei: Mmp, is there really no problem with this translation? Why did she feel like the translated sentences were much longer than they should be?
Wake carried her on his back, not daring to look behind him.
With a cold expression, he dryly said: “You…… Merfolk dance……”
You watched the merfolk king’s courtship dance. No other merfolk would dare to desire you, only I can, I’ll take responsibility.
Sure enough, these phrases were too long. Bai Weiwei’s eyes became empty.
In the end, what was he saying, ah?
System translation: “You peeped at my body while I wasn’t paying attention……”
Bai Weiwei: “Shut up.”
She wouldn’t listen to this translation, there wasn’t a single good word in this translation.
She tried to calm the powerful anger flooding her body before revealing a mission-standard warm smile.
Her voice was sweet and light, “En, whatever Wake says is what we’ll do.”
With this attack strategy, no matter what he says, it wouldn’t matter if she didn’t understand.
And the favorability would still increase.
Bai Weiwei gritted her teeth and thought, sooner or later this fish will be steamed. Where was she old, she was in her budding beauty years, very pretty.
Wake immediately turned his head, he thought she would hesitate, even if just for a second.
But she didn’t even waver.
He had a bonfire’s scorching light in his eyes, and he couldn’t maintain the indifference in his expression.
He reached out and grabbed her arm.
His ice blue eyes staring dead at her.
Word by word gaining gravity, he said, “You are…… my companion.”
This sentence, perhaps because it was said so slowly, seemed especially serious and oppressive.
Also, it was smooth.
Bai Weiwei, who finally understood a sentence: Wait, wait, companion? Wasn’t there something missing in the middle, how did it come to becoming a companion in just a moment?
Wake waited for her response with smoldering eyes.
Bai Weiwei had no reason to refuse, and nodded incidentally.
The title of a slave shouldn’t be better than a companion.
Additionally the merfolk said “companion”, he may not necessarily mean “mate”.
Wake saw her nod, and his mind went blank for a moment. He thought he would need to give her an explanation of the courtship dance at the very least.
But the moment she nodded, his brain seemed to set off fireworks.
It was like a hurricane and a tsunami.
It smashed his indifference to pieces.
Wake grasped her hand tightly. He was speechless, as if his lips were stuck together, and his muscles were tensed so hard that they trembled.
He only realized later that he was…… ecstatic?
【Ding, the male lead’s favorability is at 50.】
Bai Weiwei couldn’t help but say to the system: “This favorability is increasing a little fast.”
With just a few words, the favorability blasted into the sky as if it ate explosives.
The previous plane’s main mission was too easy to attack.
Consequently the side quests were heartless and crazed.
As a result, Bai Weiwei now had a psychological shadow.
System: “Anyway, whether it’s fast or not doesn’t make any difference since you can’t refuse a side quest.”
Bai Weiwei thought it over. Indeed, it really was a hopeless realization.
Wake’s blue eyes became gold again in his excitement, his cold thin lips moved.
This time it was authentic merfolk language.
The ethereal with a deep dullness.
He said as if singing, “You mustn’t betray me, or else you will suffer the sea’s backlash. You mustn’t leave me, or else you will be eternally submerged in the depths of the ocean. You mustn’t ever go back on your agreement with me, or else I’ll…… forever lock you into the abyss thirty thousand meters below, so that you could never again see the sun.”
This was the curse of the merfolk King.
Wake observed her soft innocent expression, she gazed at him with clear eyes. There was no defense against him.
Completely unaware that he was cursing her.
The curse from the merfolk King would always accompany her.
If she even had the thought to leave him, she would be cursed to remain in the sea forever.
TheWhiteBook’s Corner: Man oh man, could I ever relate to Bai Weiwei this chapter. I’m always on edge when the machine’s translation is suspiciously short or long.
Willow’s Corner: Me too, me too!
