It Was Time to Break Apart From Him!

“Sister?” Lan Yaoguang was calling for her again.
Gu Xijiu inhaled a breath of air, looked up and said, “Lan Yaoguang, let me say it one more time. I am not your sister, at least not in my memory. Maybe I was once Lan Jingke, but not now; and I will only regard myself as who I am now!”
Despite having part of Lan Jingke’s memories, Gu Xijiu always felt that there was something wrong with it. It felt like it did not belong to her, like a foreign object that was forced into her. Looking at stories of Lan Jingke was similar to looking at a confusing film that only had to do with someone else.
Furthermore, she did not want to be Lan Jingke, even though she was due to become the Empress of the mermaids. She was Gu Xijiu, not anyone else!
Lan Yaoguang remained silent for a moment. He inhaled a shallow breath of air and smiled at her.“Lan Jingke is the Empress of the mermaids. If you agree to be her, you will be our ruler. I will immediately pass that accolade to you. You probably have no idea how powerful this position is… You will be the most distinguished being among the entire sea tribe, which is almost at par with the dragon tribe. A commander with half of the sea tribe would have an authority higher than any Lord on land. Once you are the Empress of the mermaids, you would only be ranked below one person, and above everyone else.”
Gu Xijiu had memories of Lan Jingke and was naturally aware of that. The mermaid tribe was an exotic existence. They did not like battling at first and only had average power. They chose to isolate themselves in safetybut got bullied by many of the sea tribes.
However, since the existence of Lan Jingke and the support of Huang Tu, the mermaid tribe gradually became stronger. When Lan Jingke died, the mermaid tribe had already been able to rival the strongest tribe among the sea tribes- the dragon tribe. Hence, they became the second largest tribe of the sea.
Although Lan Yaoguang had been the ruler of the mermaids all of these years, the actual person in control had been Huang Tu. The mermaid tribe had grown bigger now, exceeding the dragon tribe in population and was slowly becoming the most influential tribe among the sea tribes.
The King of the mermaids was considered more distinguished compared to any emperor on land! If any emperor of the land were to participate in the activities of the sea, he needed to practice a certain type of formality when greeting them. The King of the mermaids only had to instruct a minister to greet him, and that would be compatible with his status.
Power was intriguing. There had been many who wanted to be the King of the mermaids. Even within the internal party of the mermaid tribe, many had been waiting for the opportunity to seize the throne. Had it not been for Huang Tu’s callous means, the Lan siblings would not have the capability to secure the position.
Lan Yaoguang was aware of the limits to his own capability, knowing that he was not fit to be the King of the mermaids. He was only determined to secure the position on behalf of his sister, and now that his sister had been reborn, it was only natural that he thought of returning the place to her.
Lan Yaoguang was very familiar with happenings on land. He had known a lot about Gu Xijiu, including her capabilities. He was convinced that she would do better than him when given the position!
In fact, Huang Tu had a strong relationship with his sister. Conceding the position to his sister would make Huang Tu more determined to help her. That would make the entire mermaid tribe greater.
He had a great plan, but did not realize that his reincarnated sister would not bother about having this position! He still wanted to convince her until Gu Xijiu interrupted, “Where is Brother Huang?” It was time to break apart from him!
“He left as he had something to do.”
“Can you get in contact with him? I need to see him.”
“The both of you must have some unique way of getting in contact with each other, right? Please help me contact him.”
