The Merman, My Man by Black Velvet Chapter 187
Despite the fact that Dicken stated that he had made the connection with me, he even gave me the “ magnetic force “ and stated that he could find me. But then I realized we were both from different worlds. I had no idea how different we were and how far apart we were in terms of light-years and galaxies. We were both very small creatures in this vast universe. Furthermore, my brief existence, which spanned only a few decades were insignificant in comparison to his.
How long could our connection last?
Although Dicken was strong, there would be times when he could not handle it. For example, he could not awaken the merfolk corpses under the sea. Those were his people.
For me, I could only do my best to accomplish what he told me. As for our future, I really had no idea how we would end up.
I bowed my head in frustration, and my heart ached. I allowed Gary to drag me forward.
Laura approached us at this point, raised her hand, and slapped Gary in the face, saying, “Nonsense! You did, in fact, behave well in front of me! Are you aware of the discipline of a soldier? Should I let you go? Or should I put you to death? The reason I handed this woman to you is to keep her under control, not to drive you insane! “
“Yes ma’am! “ Gary raised his trembling hand and saluted Laura. His palm was placed perfectly on his bleeding head.
I took advantage of the situation to break free from his grip.
“Please forgive my inappropriate behavior,“ he said as he lowered his head and stared at me with his red eyes. “Colonel Laura, what should I do now?“
“Lock her up, “ Laura seemed to have regained her composure. “Also, this is an order. You are not allowed to attempt killing the merman from now on,“ she said, taking over Gary’s gun. The doctor needs him alive, and he needs to communicate with him in Mermish! “
Then she looked at me, raised her eyebrows, and joked, “To conquer a race, we must first understand their culture. The most direct method is language. Do you agree with me, my little genius? Speaking of which, we require your assistance in communicating with the merman.“
‘In your dreams! ‘ The refusal echoed in my mind, but I pretended to be nonchalant and asked, “How are my friends? First, get a professional doctor to heal them, and then I’ll agree to work with you.“
“Thank you for your cooperation, “ An elderly voice rang out from around the corner. The man was speaking Japanese, which sounded very familiar to me.
‘Hang on, is this…’
When I realized who the voice belonged to, I saw a gray-haired old man slowly walk from the corner and towards me, step by step.
I was stunned for a split second, as if struck by lightning. I couldn’t believe my eyes as I stared at the old man’s figure. He remained the same as he had been for many years, dressed in a black kimono, the traditional Japanese robe. Above his head, his hair was in a messy bun. But his face was wrinkle – free, and his skin was as soft as a baby’s. If this was a plastic surgery procedure, I could only say it was a huge success. The only flaw in his performance was his strange expression.
“Linda, it’s been a long time since we’ve seen each other.“ He gave me a nod and said.
“Mr. Bob…“ In shock, I opened my eyes wide and uttered this name. He was the first of my friends to tell me about the merfolk. He was the one who inspired me to investigate the merfolk. I witnessed his death and even attended his funeral.
But he now had a strange appearance, with such an identity in Laura’s army, which made me realize that not everything about the merman was as simple as what I’d seen. It had been a long-planned plot for a long time.
They had been after me for a long time. They could be said to have purposefully planned a trap involving my past and future.
