My Twin Sister Was Taken as a Miko and I Was Thrown Away but I’m Probably the Miko - Chapter 192
The situation in front of him was so shocking, it was something that only appear in myths and foolish dreams.
Rowett’s pupils shrank, and he felt as if his heart had been hit hard, and at that moment he even forgot how to breathe — this feeling was almost like panic.
He had no chance to think, his limbs have already acted before his brain.
Rowett stretched out his hand and caught the coat that he had thrown aside before, and raised it vigorously, the black coat fell like a huge open wing, covering the snow-white skin instantly. The slender soles of the feet also shrank upwards instantly, curled up and were tightly covered under the clothes, without revealing the slightest gap, blocking everyone’s eyes.
He glanced coldly at the other people who were stunned in front of him, with terrifying violence surging in his eyes, and deep darkness stirring in the depths of his pupils.
— They should have their eyes gouged out.
The others woke up from their absent-mindedness just now, hurriedly lowered their heads trembling, and stood on the spot in extreme panic, and even the extra glance they took just now was enough to ruin their own lives.
Ge Xiu quickly sensed Rowett’s thoughts, and frowned.
—This wouldn’t be good.
These people are the top experts in the field of mermaid research in the entire empire. If they died, it would be difficult to find a replacement.
And he’s counting on those people to figure out what happened to him.
Ge Xiu raised his head, looked at Rowett’s well-defined chin, stretched out his hand and poked the arm in front of him, and said,
The merman’s voice was cold, like crushed ice floating in the deep ocean current, but at the moment was a bit more hoarse and lethargic, adding a bit of coquettish meaning inexplicably.
Rowett’s throat moved, and he looked down at his arms.
He saw that the mermaid transformed into a human shape was looking up at him, his blue-purple eyes were misty, and he looked a bit wronged.
Rowett suddenly remembered that the merman hadn’t stuck his head out from the bottom of the pool since he left yesterday.
The killing intent and rage in his eyes dissipated, his eyes swept over the untouched food that was left beside the pool all day, and looked down at the pitiful merman lying in his arms with gentleness: “What do you want to eat?”
Ge Xiu yawned:
“All is fine…”
He smacked his lips and added: “I want candy, strawberry flavoured.”
“Okay.” Rowett hooked up his lips: “But you can eat it after dinner.”
Everyone was stunned and stunned by the scene in front of them and they could hardly believe their eyes—they had never seen His Majesty the emperor who was violent and bloodthirsty…to have such a… tender side—and, this was probably the first time , he actually changed his mind for another existence.
They all knew that thanks to the merman in front of them, their lives could be saved.
Rowett picked up the merman horizontally, with the coat still covering him tightly. The merman’s light weight was like a feather to him.
He took a step towards the outside of the glass room.
When he was about to leave, Rowett seemed to finally remember the other people. He stopped, turned his head and glanced coldly at the group of people who were silent, and then reluctantly spit out two words with great compassion:
After saying that, the Emperor walked out without hesitation.
Those who stayed in the glass room seemed to have been granted amnesty. They felt as if they have experienced a deathly catastrophe, and fell to the ground limply, unable to get up for a long time.
From the cold moonlit night in the glass room to a huge palace.
His Majesty’s order has already been conveyed, and the urgently prepared delicacies were already waiting on the table at the moment. They were placed not far away, filled with excellent, dazzling colours under the bright light.
Rowett placed Ge Xiu on the soft couch and wrapped Ge Xiu with a huge bath towel given by the attendant.
Although his jet-black hair were half-dry and hung loosely in front of his eyes, his clothes were still wet.
Under the light from above his head, he lowered his eyes, his dark eyes hidden in the shadows cast by his eyebrows, making them appear more and more like bottomless abyss, with a hint of burning danger.
Rowett raised his hand to wipe off a little drop of water dripping from the merman’s cheek.
His voice was a little hoarse:
“I’m going to take a shower.”
Rowett glanced at the food on the table and added: “If there is anything you are not satisfied with, just ask them re-make it.”
After speaking, he adjusted his sleeves, turned around and stepped outside.
The feeling of drowsiness and heaviness from the past has disappeared a lot. Ge Xiu rubbed his eyes, sat up, lifted the jacket that was covering him, and glanced downwards—
Well, he was indeed naked.
Ge Xiu touched his nose and felt a little emotional for a moment —if it was the previous world, he could simply use the dark elements to make a set of clothes for himself, and now it has been replaced by this world without magic, no matter what way, it was a bit inconvenient.
He tentatively put his suddenly regained feet on the ground and stood up, leaning on the table.
His lower body, which had long been used to swimming in the water, suddenly softened, and his legs seemed to be out of control.
He took a deep breath slowly, and after getting used to it a little, he slowly stood up straight.
That feeling of finally getting down to earth was so nostalgic.
——But only a few seconds later, his legs began to tremble again.
Ge Xiu didn’t waste any more time, he let go of the hand holding the table, shook off the coat that had been covering him until now, and draped it over his body, the long hem of the coat drooping down, just barely covering his thighs.
Although there was only a little bit of clothing, but at least the key parts were covered tightly.
Ge Xiu buttoned up the coat and sat back to the seat just now, rolled up his cuffs that were too long, and then officially started eating—
He was indeed hungry.
This calamity was really exhausting his physical strength, and because he might have been changing his teeth before, he hadn’t eaten too much, so now he’s was so hungry his chest was sticking to his belly.
Ge Xiu suddenly remembered about this, he swallowed the food in his mouth, and tentatively licked the place where his teeth fell out.
They were fully grown…
All other teeth also seem to have been completely replaced once, and the feeling of licking them was completely different from before.
Ge Xiu looked at the silver knife in his hand thoughtfully, and slowly put the knife into his mouth, bit it with his teeth, and tentatively exerted force——
the knife broke.
Ge Xiu spat out the half blade in his mouth and observed the cut surface —the place of cut was very smooth, as if it had been cut directly by a sharp machine.
He dropped the knife and stretched out his hands—all of his nails were in place intact, pink and smooth, like tiny seashells, but Ge Xiu knew very well that something was different.
He stroked the skin of his other hand with his index finger, and the skin on which several needles had broken was easily cut in a small gash, and scarlet blood gushed out from it, slowly winding down the curves of skin on his arm.
Ge Xiu licked his wound and sucked the blood oozing from the wound into his mouth.
The faint rust smell seemed to carry the salty smell of sea water, spreading in his mouth.
He narrowed his eyes and stared thoughtfully at his hand lying flat on the table, as if he was pondering silently about something.
A question gradually became clear.
In this world…was he really a mermaid?
Judging from the information found on the Internet, mermaids were beautiful in appearance, gentle and docile in temperament, and their aggression level was very low. In human society, they were more similar to ornamental treasured fish rather than predators swimming in the oceans. But the changes in his body now—whether it’s teeth sharp enough to bite off metal, sharp nails, thick and impenetrable skin, all contradict to the habit of mermaids.
When Ge Xiu first came to this world, he could really feel the weakness of his limbs, including when he bit the Grand Duke’s throat, if it wasn’t for his familiarity with the human body structure, plus the fact that in the previous world he already had experience of biting the neck, he’s afraid it wouldn’t be so easy to kill with one blow.
And according to Ge Xiu’s knowledge of the judges, they probably wouldn’t give him such a strong racial identity so easily.
Letting him become a beautiful but fragile mermaid at the mercy of others was the most logical option.
So what exactly was going on?
“Gululu…” Ge Xiu’s stomach rumbled unwillingly, his hunger had turned into a sharp tingling, and it was clamouring for food.
He pressed his empty stomach, recovered from the thoughts just now, picked up a brand new knife and fork, and began to eat at the fastest speed.
After all, the most important thing right now was to fill his stomach.
When Rowett returned to the room again, Ge Xiu had already finished his dinner and was resting on the armrest. His long blue-purple hair was basically dry after wiping, and his eyes were slightly squinted, like a cat with that exposes its belly to the sun after eating and drinking.
In an instant, he felt that his heart was lightly scratched by a feather, a little itchy and a little irritable.
Rowett still maintained a calm expression on his face, and walked in the direction of Ge Xiu.
When Ge Xiu saw him coming, his eyes suddenly lit up. He got up and walked in the direction of Rowett. He didn’t seem to be very used to walking on land. He looked as if he was about to fall to the ground in the next second.
He was wearing an oversized coat, it was too wide and was hanging on the shoulders loosely, the open collar revealed a large piece of soft white skin, and under the long hem were two bare and thin white legs, walking on the ground a little crookedly, seeming unskilled.
A realization struck suddenly, and Rowett abruptly realized—
that under the clothes that belonged to him… the other was not wearing anything.
Rowett’s eyes darkened, he quickened his pace, and very timely let the merman who hadn’t adapted to the aspect of walking fall into his arms.
The young man raised his head in his arms, his face so beautiful that it was almost impossible to look away from it under the light, his eyes were shining, they seemed expectant.
Rowett’s throat throbbed, his voice was hoarse, as if he was suppressing some uncontrollable impulse:
Ge Xiu blinked: “Where’s the candy?”
He raised his brows in dissatisfaction: “You said that there will be strawberry candy after dinner.”
Ge Xiu acquired the new ability: acting cute!
Ge Xiu, swaying on his feet: I forgot how to walk??
Rowett: Don’t worry I got this *princess hugs him*
Bamboo has something to say:
How does it feel to sleep 6h everyday for a week? Well ah, I started seeing sparkles in the air…
Thank author the chapter now are short
We have been slowly but surely gathering the beast people prostitutes as well.
I have not yet reached out to people of other races whose freedom was taken away.
People have started calling me ‘beast people crazy prince’ and ‘beast fetishist’, but that barely counts as a problem compared to what the ones who were taken away from their homes and enslaved have gone through.
If my father finds out about this, I will surely die. Letting beast people live and helping them escape is not something a prince of this country should be doing. No one would commend someone for going against the king’s orders.
These prostitutes were fearful of my motives at first, but not anymore.
As for Dasha, the cat beast person who has been gathering other beast people, he is still working for their sake without them knowing. His actions attract hatred from his people as he tries to get humans of high status to like him, so he can try to work from the inside. I have come to like him as well.
If I can send the beast people he has gathered to the miko as well… This thought crosses my mind, but we still have no confirmation that the first group actually reached the miko.
If I had more power, I could speak my mind to my father directly and defy him, but a prince with such low right of succession cannot do that. If I had more power, I could make an appeal to end the systematic slavery altogether but… There is no use in thinking about this.
I cannot help but feel powerless.
What should I do now? What should I do to make sure I can accomplish my goals?
As I think about this, something unexpected happens.
An attack by dragon beast people.
It is a race not often seen in this country. I have only seen the one my brother enslaved.
These beings are attacking to save their comrade. My brother was seriously wounded, and apparently the dragon person has escaped.
Other slaves in this country are taking the opportunity to make their move, including people under my care.
I receive a report that slaves are taking advantage of the chaos in the country to escape. They have been freeing other slaves as well, so their numbers are growing.
I am faced with a choice. Should I make a move now?
If I move alongside the beast people, I will be a traitor, but if I continue acting the way I have, I will at least remain a prince.
Should I come out from behind the shadows and overtly work to free slaves? Or should I continue moving slowly, as a prince?
I decide to make it seem as though I was attacked by slaves and went missing.
I do not want the persecution of the slaves to continue, but this may lead to my countrymen losing their lives. Still, I want to help people who lost everything. This may be an action not fit for a prince, but the die has been cast already. I have already chosen to help beast people, and it is too late to go back.
All I can do is continue moving forward.
To be completely honest, thinking about Nina makes me hesitate. My fiancee who I have not had the chance to see a lot recently. The princess who yelled at me and lit a fire in me.
I asked my subordinate to deliver a message to her, and she has surely cut me off already. In actuality, Nina knows nothing of what has actually been going on.
I will probably never stand in front of Nina as her fiance ever again, but if possible, I do want to see her again.
With this selfish wish in my heart, I join the rebellion.
I have no idea where this choice will lead me, but it is one I make of my own accord.
At the very least, I want to liberate the slaves. If they can escape the country, that will be a victory for me, but it won’t actually solve this problem on a fundamental level.
I’m afraid the only way for this issue to be settled would be for me to be king. This thought crosses my mind as I join the rebel army. If I was king, I could work towards putting an end to slavery altogether.
Of course, this would not be simple, and if I truly began to chase the throne, I would first have to kill the whole royal family besides myself, or rob them of their power.
I shake these thoughts out of my mind.
Even if these thoughts cross my mind, I do not know if the beast people would approve.
I will first speak with people I know I can trust.
—Prince and uprising
(The prince hears news of a slave revolt, and chooses to join them.)
