MGCH Chapter 884

Your Majesty The Merfolk, Hello (54)


Bai Weiwei struggled to recall the scene just now, she was silent for a while before saying: “This person’s speech is getting better.”

When she left the ocean, wasn’t that silly merfolk still stumbling over every word?

But nowadays, he could speak more smoothly than her.

Also……

Bai Weiwei rubbed her red cheeks, “Really unbearable.”

Halfway through, she ran away, not afraid of endocrine disorders.

As soon as the system came back, it saw its host lying in bed, looking like she could rise to heaven.

“What? Thinking of me?”

Bai Weiwei: “Thinking of how you’re not dead yet.”

The system chirped: “Dead ghost, you’re so hard hearted.”

Bai Weiwei: “……”

Every time she thought her disdain toward the system had reached its limit, as a matter of course it would always unexpectedly come up with a way to disgust her even more.

Bai Weiwei rubbed her temple, “One small question, can Wake control the water, ah?”

System: “He could as long as he completely awakens his merfolk king abilities, ah.”

Bai Weiwei: “I think I should stop taking baths.”

If he came every time she bathed, sooner or later she would be killed.

System: “Why not bathe, it’s impossible for the male lead to rush through your water pipe to he-he you.”

Bai Weiwei was silent.

Then the system was silent.

On the ocean floor, in the deepest part of the Eye of the Sea.

A violent current stirred and a tall figure appeared.

His eyes were even colder than the darkness in the Eye of the Sea.

His strength wasn’t enough, he stared at his hands, thinking of the softness that he had just touched.

He slowly closed his eyes, and continued to nurture his strength. He had the power to control water which allowed him to become an incarnation of water and appear anywhere in the world.

But, this required a tremendous amount of energy.

He was still unable to hold on for long.

Furthermore, the Eye of the Sea also needed him.

This was the price he paid for his trust in humanity.

No, it was the price of his trust in her.

The system extracted the data on the Merfolk’s Heart, “Because there are too many planes, the information on each plane isn’t complete. The library only has a portion of information from each plane.”

Bai Weiwei had been flipping through the information, “Merfolk’s Heart, Merfolk’s Heart ……”

She repeated a few times, and finally found some records on the Merfolk’s Heart.

The scraps of data were all ancient information about the Heart of the Merfolks or something.

The origin of the Merfolk’s Heart was the heart of a merfolk king.

The heart required both great sadness and strong love simultaneously to form.

This regaled the story about the merfolk king’s heart.

When that king was young, he saved a princess during a storm and put her safely on the beach.

The prince of the neighboring country had just arrived when the princess opened her eyes, and she thought it was that prince who saved her.

She fell in love with him at first sight.

And the merfolk watched from a distance, not daring to approach.

Even so, he was already in love with the princess……

Wait, why was this story so familiar.

Bai Weiwei’s indifferent expression finally couldn’t withstand it.

“What stupid information is this, ah. Even if you want to spout nonsense, you can’t just casually pick up a rotten fairytale off the street to deceive me, ah.”

Wasn’t this Andersen’s1 The Little Mermaid fairy tale?

Even three year old children have heard of it.

System: “Don’t mind it so much, what do you think after reading this story?”

Bai Weiwei tossed and turned, what could she think?

Did this kindergarten bedtime story require her to write an 800 word essay on her thoughts after reading?

Was there any difference in the later parts of the story?

Bai Weiwei endured her temper and glanced down.


1: Not to be confused with Disney’s The Little Mermaid, although Disney’s version, as well as pretty much every other princess / fairy tale movie Disney has, was based off of much older (and in my opinion) much better fairy tales (since they have morals outside of happily ever after). Andersen’s The Little Mermaid has a much more gruesome ending with the little mermaid dying and becoming sea foam since she refused to kill the prince (and lots of stuff in between). A much darker story overall. Also intresting is that Andersen (full name Hans Christian Andersen) is also known most for writing these fairy tales: The Princess and the Pea, The Snow Queen (aka Disney’s Frozen), The Ugly Duckling, and Thumbelina. If you want to know more about this, here is the wiki link that has a really detailed plot summery (Wiki) and here is the whole story (Here) it’s actually pretty short.


Piper: ngl, I thought this arc was gunna be a lot more like The Little Mermaid, with castles and stuff. Also, I know that many Americans grew up with the Disney version of the story, but just out of curiosity, did anyone not know about the information above? Or was it boring and should I not bother?

  1. I know the story. I read it when i was in college. Heartrending if you invested too much interest and emotion in it, the mermaid had to sacrifice her tongue, walk on blades (similar to that pain – when she uses her legs) and her sisters gave up their hair to get a solution from the witch(which she didn’t use)___ all this for a slag.. tut tut tut.

    1. I read most of Andersen’s stories and other classic fairy tales (Grimm’s) as a child, as I come from Germany. As a kid I greatly disliked HCA’s version because it was so sad, as an adult I can appreciate how beautiful the bitter-sweet ending is.
      But seriously, read the snow Queen or watch a play, if you can! I personally adore the Sowjet movie from 1963, but that could be the nostalgia talking.
      And even though yes, originally the movie frozen was based on it, the final cut has barely anything to do with the original. Which makes it even more infuriating that in Germany they localised frozen as the Snow Queen, where the original is still pretty widely known.

      1. O.o I’ll keep that in mind, I’ve only really read the original The Little Mermaid story since I love that tale so much (my favorite Disney princess) But I know that Disney can vastly change the ending of a story to a more “happily ever after” which is great and all because HE endings are amazing, but other ending have better moral messages in my opinion, which are great for children who are learning about the world.
        Thanks for the recc XD

    2. Oh ya, the sister! I feel like Aerial’s family situation (outside of her father) really wasn’t touched on at all for pretty much all of the movies (there are a few The Little Mermaid side movies). Her sisters kind of just exist, which is sad. A complete missed opportunity.

  2. UP WHERE THEY WALK UP WHERE THEY RUNNN *singing intensifies*

    PS. So glad she thought of the bath
    PPS. The behind the stories always fascinates me, it’s def more interesting than what’s in the surface (I actually took time to research this subj lol i was so bored but yeah XD)

    The real version of the little mermaid seems the bloodiest to me next to little red riding hood, hansel and gretel then cinderella.

    The mildest I could think of is the frog king then beauty and the beast cuz it’s said that it was actually based on a real man who suffered from hair disease (forgot the name but it just grew too much) but he’s brilliant in court and to his wife nonetheless, got the happy disney ending he deserves.

    Idk which versions of these stories were actually real but every versions were really “bloody” interesting nonetheless 💀😂
