It’s Over! The Major General is Bent! - Chapter 56
“Salome. . . That’s right, Salome.”
He said the name here, and the lady over there was dissatisfied.
“As a servant, you will be punished if you call your master’s name at will.”
“No, I just thought of a story. The princess in the story is the same as the young lady’s. Both are called Salome. Do you want to hear it? “
Fortunately, when he was lying in the hospital bed, because he had nothing to do, he could only read books and read almost all of his parents’ collections.
For the story of “Salome”, because the ending was a bit horrible, his memory of it was quite deep, and the dialogue between the characters in the story was as graceful as an opera, and he still remembered some of the dialogues.
Hmm, but in order not to provoke the young lady, Princess Salome’s execution in the end must not be said. . .
“Once upon a time, in a faraway place, there was a princess named Salome who had amazing beauty. . .”
As soon as Miao Te started, he was interrupted.
“You said exactly the same thing in the previous story.”
The blonde lady complained with squinting eyes.
Because in the previous story of the little mermaid, Miao Te said, ‘Once upon a time, in the ocean, there was a golden-haired mermaid princess, who had amazing beauty. . .’.
Well, almost like two peas in a pod.
“. . .”
The youth felt a little wronged.
Can you blame him? Almost all fairy tales begin like this.
But he touched the metal ring on his neck, and couldn’t refute so he could only continue speaking aggrievedly.
“Many people admire this beautiful princess. Her beauty and her slim figure tempted all men who saw her. However, she did not like any man. Until one day, she met a prophet. . .”
“What is a prophet?”
Miss Salome interrupted him again.
Miao Te thought for a while and replied.
“It is a kind of person who can predict the future, inform the people of the dangerous future, and instruct the people to avoid danger, so therefore have a very high reputation among the people.”
Salome said flatly, “even the most efficient intellectual brain has collected a huge database of information, and the probability of calculating what will happen in the future is still very low. It’s impossible for the human brain to process a large amount of information in a short time and use this to calculate future events.”
“. . . No, the prophet’s predictions doesn’t rely on his own brain’s calculation, but a special ability given to him by god. “
“No, god is only a legend. It doesn’t exist, and it never gave anything to humans.”
“. . . . . . . . . . . . “
“And what’s more, his actions aren’t something ordinary people would do to enjoy a high reputation among the people. It’s illogical. Ordinary people don’t have the ability to convince others.”
“. . . . . . . . . . . . “
Myth versus technology.
The fight between liberal arts and science.
When talking about the fairy tale of the mermaid just now, he was constantly interrupted by Miss Salome constantly. The boy who was beaten from start to finish felt that he had endured to the limit.
He couldn’t help shout at the young lady who kept interrupting.
“Will you listen! Shut up if you want to hear!”
The emerald green eyes widened in surprise, and the blonde lady showed an incredible look on her face.
“You actually yelled at me?”
Ever since she was young, even her infinitely honorable father has never yelled at her. This little guy actually—
In fact, he actually regretted it after yelling, but since he’d done it, he couldn’t lose his courage and lose face.
So Miao Te continued to yell at Salome.
“What’s the matter with you? You said you wanted me to say it. I said it and you always say it’s wrong. It’s so noisy! I’m sick of it!!— Either you shut up, or I won’t say!”
Salome opened her mouth in surprise, staring wide-eyed at the stubborn young boy. For a time, her momentum was overwhelmed by Miao Te and she nodded blankly.
“You go on, I won’t speak.”
Seeing that the blonde lady shut up obediently, Miao Te nodded in satisfaction, and then continued.
“The man known as the prophet did not fear the king’s power in the slightest. He rebuked the king for killing his brothers and taking away his sister-in-law, adding sins and spilling injustice all over the earth. . .”
. . . . . .
The beautiful Salome fell in love at first sight of the Prophet, and begged to kiss the Prophet’s lips.
But the Prophet called her the daughter of the devil. He thought she was filthy and hated her so much that he didn’t even want to look at her.
After being rejected, she asked her stepfather, the king, to kill the prophet and give her his head.
She held the blood-dripped head and finally got her wish and kissed the cold lips of the person she loves
The room was very quiet. Although the night sky outside was bright, the room was dark.
Salome laid quietly on the bed, looking at the golden veil on the top of the bed.
In the darkness, her green eyes seemed to glow brightly.
“[Please say it again, your voice is as sweet as wine]. . . [I want to kiss your lips, I will use my teeth, as if biting a ripe fruit.]”
“[But why don’t you Look at me, why don’t you let me kiss your lips?]. . .”
She repeated the sentence in the story softly with a sweet voice, and Salome, who was lying on her back, smiled.
“These languages are as beautiful as music.”
She said, her emerald eyes narrowed slightly.
“Moreover, the behavior of the woman named Salome in this story is also to my taste.”
“If I can’t get what I want, then I will destroy it with my hands. It belongs only to me.”
She chuckled softly, her white legs swayed in the air. She laid on the soft bed with arms outstretched, staring at the golden veil falling from above.
After a long time in a trance, she suddenly opened her lips, repeating the words in the story with a singing voice.
“[Look, I kissed your lips.]”
That was the last sentence spoken by Princess Salome in the story.
She held the head of her beloved man, let the blood flow on her arm, and kissed her lips against the cold lips of the head.
