It’s Over! The Major General is Bent! - Chapter 55
Just when Miao Te was about to leave the soft floor and the luxurious, exquisite bedroom, the blonde lady suddenly stopped him.
“What’s your name?”
The boy hesitated.
“John? It’s an old-fashioned name. There are a lot of people with this name. Your parents really have no naming sense.”
The blonde lady lying on the soft bed mumbled, obviously disdaining this ordinary name.
She propped up her upper body with her arms, her soft chest resting on the quilt. The obvious gully in the snow-white area became deeper and deeper because of the squeeze, causing Miao Te to blush and quickly looked away.
With pure golden hair scattered on her shoulders, she played with the golden hair that fell on her chest and smiled at the teenager.
She said, her eyes that were shaped into peach blossom petals bent like a smile yet not a smile.
“Remember, this is your master’s name.”
. . . Salome and John. . . If he remembered correctly, it seemed to be the name of the hero and heroine in a certain story.
What a coincidence.
Miao Te suddenly felt a little bit dumbfounded.
Any pseudonym could have been used, but why did this one have a relationship with this young lady.
Thinking this way, he nodded slightly, then turned around to leave. But just after taking a step, Miss Salome’s lazy voice came from behind again.
Salome, who was lying lazily on the soft bed, looked at the teenager who seemed like he was trying to escape, and found it more interesting.
As soon as she found it interesting, she didn’t want to let him run away.
Moreover, she still had one curious thing that she hadn’t asked him yet.
“Why did you call me a ‘mermaid’ [měirényú] when you just woke up?” she asked, “Beauty [měirén] ?. . . and fish [yú] ?”
“That’s. . .”
Miao Te thought for a while, and felt that it shouldn’t be a big problem to tell the truth.
“It’s a story my mother told me when I was a kid, about a mermaid who saved a prince from drowning.”
“So, what is a ‘mermaid’?”
“A creature whose upper body is a woman’s and the lower body is a fish’s.”
The boy’s answer made the blonde lady’s eyes cold and her face sank.
“A monster of genetic hybridization—you actually think of me as that kind of lowly monster?!”
Although she had an angel-like face, when she suddenly lost her smile, she inexplicably gave out a shocking aura. The atmosphere of the whole room instantly became oppressive.
“Huh? Gene hybridization? No, it’s not—”
Miao Te was taken aback for a moment, but he reacted immediately and explained quickly.
“It’s not the kind you think. The mermaid I’m talking about is not the kind that’s artificially cultivated by gene breeding – I’m talking about a kind of existence in myths and legends. . .”
In order to calm the young lady’s anger, he tried to add various embellishments to the mermaid race.
“In myths and legends, they are creatures living in the depths of the Earth’s sea, a race favored by gods. They’re a race that’s much better than human beings— they’re born with amazing beauty and beautiful singing voices. They are the royal family in the sea, ruling over all the creatures in the sea.”
He desperately threw all kinds of praiseful words into it. Seeing Miss Salome’s anger gradually subsiding, the boy breathed a sigh of relief.
“In that case, tell me the story.”
Since the lady had spoken, he must not refuse.
In desperation, Miao Te returned to the soft paving on the ground and began to tell Miss Salome about the mermaid’s story.
The fairy tale wasn’t long, he finished it quickly.
While he was telling the story, Miss Salome had an expression that lacked interest. When he said that at the end of the story, the mermaid dropped the dagger, jumped into the sea, and turned into a bubble, the young lady’s face was even worse. She curled her lips without concealing her contempt.
She said ruthlessly.
“To give up her life for a man, I have never seen such a stupid woman. How can she be so stupid?”
“. . . For the happiness of her beloved?”
This was Miao Te’s answer after shortly mulling over it.
This time, Miss Salome didn’t bother to say anything. She just gave Miao Te a contemptuous look to express her distaste.
“Why do you care so much about others? As I see it, she should just kill the prince directly, turn back into a mermaid, and return to the sea,” she said angrily, “What kind of nasty story did you make up?”
“. . .I didn’t write it. “
“Another one! “
“But. . .”
“Give me another one, and it must make me happy, or else. . . your neck, oh~ “
“Got it! I’ll just change it!”
Miss Salome glanced at his neck, and only felt that the metal ring around his neck was cold to the point it penetrated into his soul. The young man was agitated, and quickly searched for other stories in his mind.
But the more anxious he was, the more he couldn’t remember. Even if he remembered it, most of them were of the type that this young lady would not like. He scratched his head in distress.
“John, are you ready?”
The impatient young lady had already called his name and urged.
When she shouted, Miao Te’s eyes lit up.
