The Merman, My Man by Black Velvet Chapter 186
I bent down and wanted to take Gary’s gun as soon as I saw he could move. But I wasn’t expecting him to react. He snatched the gun and rolled away. Then he leaned against the wall, aiming the weapon at Dicken.
I wasn’t thinking about anything at the time. I jumped into the water and stretched my arms out in front of Dicken. Just like the first time I resolved the conflict between Dicken and Gary. Even though I knew my tiny body couldn’t completely cover Dicken’s body, it was the only thing I could do at the time. That was what kept Gary from shooting repeatedly.
His fishtail trailed after my body and wrapped itself around it gradually. Dicken supported me and placed me on his chest. His fins shielded my heart completely. His lips gently kissed the back of my neck. I had the impression he wasn’t saying anything. “Linda, you want to protect me, “ his hoarse voice said to me.
I was taken aback. He was able to communicate with me directly through the nerves in our brains after establishing the connection. And I could clearly hear a glimmer of a smile in his tone.
I couldn’t figure out why the thought of protecting him made him laugh. Even at this critical point of life and death. ‘Does he still treat me like a child in his arms from a decade ago?’
“Goddamn it! Shut your mouth, “ I said, lowering my voice, “Gary, he wants to…own me. He’s not going to kill me but he will not show you any mercy! “
“Leave him and come to me, Linda! I am warning you! “
Gary yelled angrily. The muzzle was aimed squarely a t the both of us. His emotions were erratic. I had no idea what this lunatic was going to do. I wasn’t sure if he’d kill Dicken and me together just for not being able to have me. But it was clear that, even if we were all going to die together, I didn’t want to leave Dicken. This thought had already outweighed the desire to live. I clutch his chest tightly. His steady heartbeat soothed me from behind. It roused the emotions in my chest. Even though I was facing death, I was brave.
“He won’t be able to kill me, Linda.
“Don’t worry. I am the merfolk clan’s final black scale alpha. I will not die. He won’t be able to violate you anymore. I’ve transferred the magnetic force you mentioned to you, and it’ll keep you safe. Find a way to get out of here. Find Kalimadi. He’ll lead you into the merfolk world.“
Dicken’s low, hoarse voice occupied my thoughts. My body was pushed closer to him by his fishtail. He gently rubbed his lips behind my neck. I felt a gentle breath on the back of my neck. It was a treasure trove of strong emotions.
“We’ll see each other again, Linda. I can find you no matter where you are.“
My body was then placed on the ground. I was suddenly reminded of the merfolk corpses buried beneath the sea. If the thing that resembled an underwater cemetery was the merman’s planet, it gave me a bad feeling. I subconsciously hugged Dicken’s tail with both hands, walked up to him, and looked at him as if he were a child.
But he swung his fishtail and shoved me up against the wall.
Gary rushed up as soon as he saw this. He grabbed my arms and dragged me to the hatch. But my gaze remained fixed on Dicken. I didn’t want to take my eyes off him. My tears flowed unconsciously from my eyes. Dicken’s face became a blur amid my teary eyes.
