The Mad and Cool Female Lord - 24.2
“You are really strange.” Seeing the woman suddenly stop speaking again, Su Yanxi couldn’t resist pouting and complained. “Feels like I am talking to the air. If you are always so silent, don’t you feel bored?”
Su Ranjing: “……” Sure enough, I still really want to fry this fish, so that she could never speak again.
“You’re injured, did you not even feel it?” Su Yanxi seemed to be completely unaware of the killing intent released by the person in front of her. She suddenly twisted Su Ranjing’s hand, which was hanging by her side, in surprise. “See, your hand is completely covered in blood!”
Su Ranjing, who didn’t expect the little mermaid’s sudden movement, subconsciously stretched her body taut in a split second. It was only after she heard that she had finished talking that she gradually relaxed. Her indifferent expression made it seem as if the injured person was not herself. “Whatever.”
That simple and kind-hearted face truly induces one to vomit. Su Ranjing frowned in disgust, and couldn’t help coldly moving her sight away.
“That’s true. It doesn’t seem to be serious.” The little mermaid agreed as she nodded her head. Then, she unconsciously turned her head around again, her gaze seemed to carry surprise. She lowered her eyes and studied it in high spirits. “They seemed to have been stabbed by something. You humans are seriously fragile. If it were us mermens, then it wouldn’t be that easy to get hurt!”
When the little mermaid was saying the last few words, her tone turned proud for some reason.
Su Ranjing pulled at the corners of her mouth. She kept feeling that the stupid fish she knows now was different from the one in her memories. Was the idiot in the last life this……strange?
Or was it because she had yet to come into contact with human society? Su Ranjing pondered in her mind: compared to the mermaid who was already used to human life, the stupid fish now was obviously more pleasing.
The little mermaid now was just like a piece of white paper, ignorant of worldly affairs yet carried a near stupid amount of optimism and enthusiasm. It made her have an impulse to recklessly smear gorgeous colors on that piece of pure white paper, then carefully sculpt and mold her.
Thinking like that, in Su Ranjing’s pair of pitch-black eyes that reflected nothing in them, the inky color in them suddenly faded bit by bit as snow would thaw. The soft waves like water at the bottom of her eyes rippled, a clear light gray color emerged.
Her gaze was deep and focused, yet the depths seemed to contain gentle spring waters. It was as if in the next second, they would reveal an unsupressable tenderness. When one was being looked at with that attentive gaze of hers, one would feel as though they were the only person left in her world, causing one to be enchanted.
The naive little mermaid was naturally unable to bear such a temptation. She subconsciously leaned back a bit. Her face was also unable to suppress her rising temperature till it was scorching hot. Su Yanxi slightly bit her lower lips, her tone was awkward as she talked. “Y-you look at people s-strangely……”
“I am thinking about which one of your questions I should reply to.”
Yet that gorgeous, cold, deep voice carried a gentleness able to erode bones. It made one seemingly hear the magnificent flower buds slowly blooming in the gentle spring breeze. Somehow an illusion of being cherished was suddenly formed.
“Yet whenever I wanted to reply to you, you had already jumped onto the next question. I can’t keep up with your thought process.” When saying the last few words, the mysterious and cold woman suddenly gave a perverse smile to the mermaid blankly looking at her. The last syllables carried a frivolous banter. “Say——what should I do?”
【……H-hey, Su Su, calm down ah!】007 nearly jumped. It leaped onto the head of its partner, whose head was releasing white smoke having crashed already, and shook her nonstop in panic.【Think about it, Su Ranjing is someone who would kill you. So if the female lead suddenly treated you like this, then there must be a scheme! Stupid Su Su, you have to wake up ah! Hey!】
Su Yanxi still remained in a daydreaming state.
007 shook its head, giving up【S-su Su you have to persevere! The female lead has bad intentions, she has an ulterior motive, she harbors ill will, she harbors evil designs, she is plotting some conspiracy ahhhhh——】
“See. This time I replied yet you stopped talking.” Su Ranjing stretched out her hands to lift up the little mermaid’s exquisite chin. Her eyes lowered to look down at her. A hint of pampering oozed out from her gaze as she smiled. “Kidde, you really make one’s head hurt.”
“H-hand……” Where could the little mermaid have experienced such a scene? She was incoherent and speechless when faced with such a scene. In the end, she finally gathered up her courage under the woman’s bantering and smiling expression. She closed her eyes and flusteredly shouted——
“Where are you placing your hand, you bastard!”
Then, under this human’s low evil laugh, the little mermaid was ashamed as she held her tail and attempted to use it to slap the hand that had unconsciously landed on her lithe waist. The result was naturally that it was futile.
“I merely wanted to see your tail, that shouldn’t justify such agitation right?” Su Ranjing expression was unscrupulous as she raised an eyebrow when replying.
Although the little mermaid felt that there was something wrong somewhere, she couldn’t speak any words in retort. She could only pant in rage and glare at her.
Yet Su Ranjing had surprisingly discovered: when she saw that pair of flaming red eyes filled with only her image, unable to contain another, she actually felt inexplicably satisfied.
If she forcefully took possession of that pair of blood red, bright, beautiful eyes, so that it could only see herself, that feeling should be especially good.
“Little miss who likes being angry, may I know where you are from?” Knowing that the little mermaid now had yet to raise her defenses against humans, Su Ranjing’s lips curled up and took the initiative to ask.
“W-what likes being angry? I was not!” The little mermaid’s pout was bulging. First, she quietly muttered to herself, then her fishtail swayed. A pair of clear and bright eyes also couldn’t help turning dazzling and sparkling. “I am at——”
As if she thought of something, Su Yanxi suddenly paused. She asked in uncertainty. “Why do you ask?”
Su Ranjing looked at her pair of beautiful eyes twinkling in vigilance. Her eyebrows quirked up. Seems like she was not that stupid.
She avoided the question and continued asking. “Maybe I could wager a guess: Miss little mermaid, standing in front of me right now, had perhaps secretly ran out here for some kind of reason?”
The little mermaid had also quickly forgotten about her earlier uncertainty. Hearing her question, she couldn’t help sticking out her tongue in embarrassment. She calmly replied. “Right ah, I was just curious about what mommy and the others said about how humans lived and why they would be so afraid of you humans.”
The little mermaid smiled, not knowing how the world worked, at the woman with hidden intentions in front of her. The smile was resplendent and dazzling, it was as if all the sunlight had gathered into this smile. Her gaze shined brilliantly at the woman. Her image was clearly reflected in that pair of enthusiastic, bright, and colorful red eyes, as if she was the only one remaining in the whole world, causing one’s heart to be beat.
No matter how much she detested her, it seemed that she was unable to reject her warmth, that was mesmerizing and blazing like that of a raging fire, coming from her body. Even if one knew they would be burned, they still couldn’t resist getting closer.
Being fixedly stared at by that pair of radiant red eyes, even if Su Ranjing had always harbored malice towards her, she was still affected. Suddenly, an indescribable thirst aroused in her heart, a desire for her to always look at herself like that, her gaze never able to turn away and make her whole world contain only herself……This abnormal obsession filled state, nearly made her lose her mind.
The corners of Su Ranjing’s lips unconsciously curled up. Her gray eyes shone in a metallic lustre and slightly narrowed, which just so happened to cover coldness and cunningness in the depths of her eyes.
Yes, look at me just like that. Don’t turn your sight away. You could only care about me. I would make your everything solely my own. I won’t let anybody else infect you, not even a tiny bit!
——Then how shall I reach that goal?
——I merely need to lock you inside a room. Then, you could only speak to me, could only smile at me.
Su Yanxi suddenly felt a bit chilly. She couldn’t resist raising her head to look at the sky in ignorance.
【Su Su, what are you thinking?】007, who finally had the chance to interrupt and, relying on the fact that the female lead couldn’t discover it, floated in between the two people. Its face was solemn as it asked Su Su.
“This is the last chance, 007.” Su Yanxi’s right eye quietly winked at it. “Based on the development of the plot, tomorrow is the day that the mermen clan would be destroyed. That is what’s truly irredeemable. So, even if the female lead did not appear here today, perhaps I may even appear in front of her voluntarily.
【But that’s illogical ah. According to reason, when the female lead sees you, shouldn’t she itch to directly kill you? But why——】007 strangely looked at Su Ranjing, who was smiling and thinking about who knows what.【Although she also has killing intent, without even talking about how it had inexplicably dispersed, she had, not only, not taken action, she had even acted so strangely!】
……As if she was seducing Su Su _(:_」∠)_
However, it should be a illusion right? Cough, cough.
It was rare [not] that 007 deceived itself and others.
Hearing 007 bring up that point, Su Yanxi couldn’t help but also be somewhat confused. She mumbled, “I don’t know either……Although I know that she definitely wouldn’t take action today, but I didn’t expect……”
【How did you know that she wouldn’t take action?】
“The original text mentioned it before. Tomorrow just so happened to be the day that the male lead and the mermaid met. So the female lead would pick tomorrow, in particular, to massacre the merman clan.” Su Yanxi blinked. She couldn’t help feeling somewhat timid when faced with the female lead’s cold-blooded action of ruthlessly killing people like flies.
“I only know that she wouldn’t destroy the opportunity by taking action today——” When she said that, she slightly frowned. “But in reality, I did not figure out what I should do, after meeting the female lead, so that she would show mercy.”
——So the situation right now was completely out of her expectations.
【No matter what had actually happened, Su Su, you must definitely not be misled by the female lead ah!】Even if it doesn’t understand what’s happening, 007 was still on guard as it said【This is different from the mission planes before. In this world, it could be said that there is a huge debt of blood between you and the female lead. Danger Level SS worlds are not something you play around with, Su Su.】
Hearing the implications in 007’s words, Su Yanxi couldn’t resist feeling guilty as she shifted her red eyes.
She had originally thought that 007 would continue to lecture her. She didn’t expect for it to change words and suddenly say in a solemn and serious manner.【I originally just wanted to find you a Level B mission for you to practice. I didn’t expect for such a situation to appear. I’m sorry Su Su. 】
Although the attacker would not truly die if they were murdered in a plane, the injury on their spirit was not something that can be ignored. There are who knows how many attackers in the department who, because of some problem that occurred during their mission and accidentally died, had their mental states broken or even collapsed, and got sent to the nursing home.
It couldn’t imagine Su Su, who was filled with energy, break down; what that image would be like, nor does it want to know.
So if she really faced that danger, even if it needed to exhaust all its energy, it still must safely send Su Su out of the plane.
Su Yanxi, who doesn’t know what her partner was thinking about, couldn’t help being somewhat dazed. She hurriedly comforted. “007, why are you acting so serious ah. I feel like it’s not that serious ah. Our goal is to be the best in the department. So it’s only a matter of time before we came across these kinds of missions, isn’t that right? Besides, it’s not your fault; a bug appeared in the mission. Then, then……that’s right, it’s all that main system’s fault!”
……The main system expresses that it got shot even when lying down*. _(:_」∠)_
*get unjustly implicated just by being present
007:【……】Fuck, what partner said was extremely reasonable. I actually can’t retort.
【……Anyways.】I didn’t expect my partner to actually put the black pot on the main system*. Some black lines involuntarily appeared on 007. However, it thought better of it: it seems like that was indeed the case (……). As a result, it said in all seriousness.【The female lead must be harboring some scheme. Su Su, you must not be tricked, you must be extra vigilant!】
*use the main system as scapegoat
——The most important thing is: don’t be foolishly attracted by that evil flirt, the perverted female lead!!
007 silently yelled that sentence inside its heart.
