1021 Am I Really Such Scum?
Mag pulled Amy to the bathroom door and watched speechlessly as the mermaid splashed around in the bathtub like a salted fish.
Aren’t mermaids supposed to be the epitome of gracefulness? Why does this beautiful mermaid look like a salted fish that is being fried in a pan when she struggles facing down?
Besides, she even let out a series of gurgling sounds. Her voice was very crisp and pleasing to the ear, but even Mag, who had mastered the languages of two worlds, could not understand even a single word.
It sounded a little like Russian, but he was certain it was a language he could not understand.
“Meow~” Ugly Duckling peeked its head out from between their legs. It stared straight at the huge tail that hung out from the bathtub as though it was looking at its breakfast.
“Father, what is Big Sister Mermaid saying?” Amy looked at Mag curiously.
“I don’t understand her, either.” Mag shook his head. He carefully observed the mermaid who was still unable to flip over, and hesitantly said, “Maybe she wants to flip over?”
“Then let’s help her. She looks pretty anxious,” Amy said sympathetically.
Gina was indeed very anxious. Although this restrictive coffin was large enough for her with some space to move on the left and right, for someone who lived in the wide ocean, being trapped in a small place like this was simply unacceptable, not to mention that she might be trapped until she died.
However, she could not understand the language of the people outside, and they would probably not be able to understand her, either.
As the princess of Lantisde, she might actually die from starvation here because of the language barrier. She felt so aggrieved that she wanted to cry.
The moment she thought of that, her tears started falling uncontrollably, and when her tears fell, they became blue tear-shaped pearls and landed at the bottom of the bathtub.
The sound of crying came from the bathtub, and that mermaid lay at the bottom of the bathtub, crying as though she had given up struggling.
“Big Sister Mermaid is so huge. Why must she cry so pitifully just because she can’t flip over? Could there be other reasons?” Amy walked to the bathtub and tip-toed to peek curiously.
Maybe it’s because she was also accidentally teleported over like Babla? Could it have something to do with the moon nation? Mag thought with a frown. No one knew how many places the teleportation portal at the restaurant was linked to. She’s already the second one.
Mag walked to the bathtub and looked at the crying mermaid as he said, “Miss mermaid, is it convenient for you to flip over and talk?”
Although I can’t understand what he’s saying, this voice sounded very gentle. I think it came from above. Could there be someone on top? Gina turned her head slowly, wanting to look up when she heard the voice, but her neck could only turn to a maximum of 90 degrees, and she still could not see what was above.
What’s there to look at? Isn’t there still a cover on top… boohoo… Gina felt even more aggrieved and lost all motivation to flip over in an instant. Although she really wanted to take a look at what the man with the gentle voice looked like, she still might be trapped here forever.
“Are you really that lazy?” Without another choice, Mag reached into the bathtub, grabbed one side of the mermaid’s shoulder gently, and flipped her over to face up.
Gina felt a warm and strong hand grab her shoulder. Immediately, the world spun and she was flipped over.
It’s empty? There’s no cover?! Gina blinked, a little dumbfounded.
This was not the bottom of the sea, and it seemed that it was air outside of the area she was lying in. Could she still be on land? But why would there be such a small piece of the ocean on land?
The bottom of the sea is white and the shore is white… how could such a place exist?
She saw the bright light and a large and a small figure standing at the side.
She was stunned for a moment. Gina focused and noticed the two figures on the side. Her gaze fell on the little girl who was leaning over the white shore.
What a cute little girl! Gina’s eyes lit up. Her large blue eyes glimmer and a lock of her silver hair curls up, making her look extra cute. Not to mention those sharp little ears. Could she be the kind elf that the high priest mentioned?
“Hello, Big Sister Mermaid.” Amy waved her little hand at Gina. She liked the pretty big sister, even though she might not understand her.
Although Gina could not understand the little girl, she could feel her kindness, so she also smiled and nodded at Amy.
After that, her gaze fell on the figure beside her. She froze for three seconds and sat right up in an instant. She grabbed Mag’s hand, and agitatedly said, “Chosen One! I’ve finally found you! I had such a hard time looking for you…”
“Big Sister Mermaid really seems to know Father? Could she really have saved Father? Did she drink the witch’s potion so that she could see Father again? Should I tell this to Big Sister Irina?” Amy mumbled to herself as she studied the hand that was holding Mag tightly and Gina’s emotional face.
“Erm, Miss, I think you’ve gotten the wrong person?” Mag was also taken aback. Although he could not understand her, based on her expression, it seemed like she knew him and she probably came to look for him.
However, in his and Alex’s memory, there was nothing concerning merfolk.
Gina’s breathing started quickening when she suddenly left the water and was exposed to the air. However, how would she bear to let go when the Chosen One that she had taken pains to look for was right before her? She was afraid that if she let go, she would wake up from this dream.
“Father, it took Big Sister Mermaid so much difficulty to find you, how can you be so heartless and pretend not to know her? She even drank the witch’s potion and lost her voice just to see you again. How can you bear to let her go like this?” Amy said as she looked at Gina sympathetically.
In this instant, even Mag could not help but ask himself, Am I really such scum?
Just then, Ugly Duckling also leaned over the bathtub and peeked its head out.
Gina turned to look out of reflex, and she suddenly lost all color in her face. She curled her tail and leaped straight out of the bathtub, hitting the ceiling with a bang, and then crashed back into the bathtub like a frightened mouse. She hid her head underneath her tail as she curled up in a corner, shivering.
