Your Majesty The Merfolk, Hello (47)
Bai Weiwei sighed, “Forget it, forget it, I can sympathize with you. I’ll believe you this once.”
System: What’s the meaning of this being-charitable-to-a-beggar’s tone? Too perfunctory. But, this matter was finally concealed.
The blue whale called again.
A brilliant blue glow bloomed from the sea beneath the whale.
Bai Weiwei frowned and looked down. She saw a large transparent pearl the size of a large pigeon egg slowly floating up.
Wake’s voice came up from below, “Take…… live it1.”
Bai Weiwei reached out, and that weightless, beautiful crystal pearl floated into her hand.
Additionally, information about the Merfolk’s Heart emerged in her mind.
the Merfolk’s Heart was placed in the Eye of the Sea, in the center of the empire.
The Eye of the Sea was deep and dark.
Even the strongest of merfolk didn’t dare try to enter.
The merfolk wouldn’t move the Merfolk’s Heart, it was the one thing they couldn’t touch. Their most important thing was nothing compared to taking away the Merfolk’s Heart.
Their empire would start to have earthquakes.
They simply couldn’t afford the loss.
If someone wanted to remove the Merfolk’s Heart, they first needed something as powerful as it to suppress the Eye of the Sea.
That powerful thing……
Bai Weiwei struggled to look down and found Wake was there in the Eye of the Sea.
His exquisitely defined features were calm and gentle as his golden hair fluttered in the water, like the god of the sea.
He was obviously in the most frightening depths of the Eye of the Sea, where he could be pulled down at any time by the current below.
But he didn’t have a strand of panic, nor was he sucked in.
The system also watched, “The male lead is very strong, he’s now replacing the Merfolk’s Heart to calm the entire Eye of the Sea.”
Bai Weiwei: “Do you think, if we took the Merfolk’s Heart now and ran, he would catch up?”
System: “As soon as he chases, the earthquakes would start, he shouldn’t choose to pursue.”
With the pearl in her hands, Bai Weiwei thought it over, “Then this is the best chance.”
Once they missed this opportunity, then the side quest would basically be declared a failure.
It would be impossible to find such an opportunity to take away the Merfolk’s Heart again in the future.
The system also thought about it and nodded, “Yes, this is the best chance.”
The two people agreed, then bowed their heads to see the merfolk standing below.
Wake floated in the center of the Eye of the Sea, gently raising his slender neck, to look at Bai Weiwei.
The Merfolk’s Heart could grant wishes.
So long as Bai Weiwei wished to become a mermaid, she could stay with him forever.
From then on, they will live happily together in the sea.
Wake pressed his lips together in restraint, but his eyes held a delighted smile.
He whispered a spell from his ancestral memories.
Only the King knew the spell to activate the Merfolk’s Heart’s wish granting functions.
Bai Weiwei heard some special words, not in the human language, yet it sounded directly in her mind.
“Make a wish and I will realize it.”
Below, Wake labored to say, “Change…… Mermaid……”
Change into a mermaid.
That was the wish he wanted her to make.
Bai Weiwei was sitting on the back of the whale holding the Merfolk’s Heart. Her already clean skin seemed even more crystal clear in the water.
She looked at him faintly, and abruptly said, “Wake, I’m sorry, I don’t want to stay in the sea, let’s break up.”
This sentence was like a sharp knife.
That instantly penetrated Wake’s heart.
He couldn’t feel any pain for a while, he just stared up at her helplessly, as if he couldn’t understand what she was saying.
1: 拿……住它: 拿=take 住=live, but the reside/lodge definition, Ie: “This is where I live.” not “I’ll live.” 它=it. I don’t quite know if he’s trying to say she should accommodate it, or be accommodated by it.↩
