The Merman, My Man by Black Velvet Chapter 55
“No! It’s not what you think! “
Gary became even more emotional than me. He grabbed my wrist with his veined arms and hurriedly said, “I did plan to invite you to the government merman research project. But I am not a part of the plan you mentioned! It was because your results were outstanding and my selfishness blinded me. I wish I had more opportunities to get along with you…“
He looked into my eyes. It made me feel very uncomfortable because he seemed to see something by staring at me!
His pupils dilated, and his breathing became more rapid. It was as if he was irritated. He must have been recalling the scene where the beast violated me.
Suddenly, he shook his head madly and said in pain, “I don’t know why Laura would do these to you.
Treating you as…“
“Stop it! Gary! If you feel even a little guilty for me, help me get out of here, regardless of Laura’s control. I want to go home, “ I interrupted Gary. I was highly embarrassed by his descriptions.
I closed my eyes and moved backward. As if by doing this, I could erase these images from my mind.
Gary was annoyed as I moved backward. He grabbed my waist and pulled me over to him. He looked at me in distress with his bloodshot eyes then hugged me in his embrace.
“Linda, listen to me. Since it has already come to this stage, there is no turning back. You have seen Laura’s influence. Your resistance will be useless… But don’t worry, I swear I will not let that beast hurt you again…“
I mustered up my strength to free myself from his arms, then sneered, “I don’t believe you. I will never go back to that awful place! “
With that, I ran away. I just wanted to keep myself away from them.
But after taking a few steps, I felt a firm grip around my waist. The next minute my whole body was dangling in the air. Gary had carried me above his shoulders.
I punched and kicked him as hard as I could. But he would not let go of me no matter how violently I struggled. Step by step, he carried me back to the institute.
“Let go of me! You b*stard!
“You can’t force me to do anything anymore! “
Bustling noises slowly surrounded us, which made m e stop shouting. I didn’t want to attract any attention. The slightest gaze could easily make me feel embarrassed.
I lowered my voice and said, “Gary, put me down. I can walk by myself.“
But he didn’t seem to hear what I said, and he continued to carry me. He even sped up.
At the same time, I saw a mini-research ship berthed on the sea nearby. There were about three floors of cabins.
Several muscular sailors were carrying a big cylindrical water tank. They were loading it up the ship from the temporary-made deck.
A metallic net covered the cylindrical water tank. It was used to prevent the beast from breaking free. Immediately, I knew what was hiding in the water tank!
There were about five to six soldiers with a gun surrounding the sailors. If one didn’t know what was happening, they would probably think the guards were carrying banknotes.
“What are you guys doing? Where is the ship heading to?“
With all my might, I hit Gary’s back with my free arm, and it made him groan.
But he didn’t let go of me. Instead, he held me even tighter now. He followed after the soldiers and brushed past the water tank holding the merman.
For a moment, I seemed to see a pair of long, gloomy eyes through the gap in the highly shielded water tank. My heart slowed down in fear.
A loud crash came from the ground.
The water tank began to shake vigorously, and the sailors could not handle it. They staggered around and were unsteady on their feet. The water tank looked like it was about to roll to the ground.
