She Wanted To Appoint Fraudulent Prince Consort
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
As usual, The Lord answered the call almost immediately. Lan Yaoguang sighed. He sounded helpless. “Brother Huang, my sister wanted me to ask when you will pay a visit to the sea tribe to get a divorce.”
As expected, The Lord gave the same speech, and similarly, Lan Yaoguang ended the conversation after a moment of casual talk. However, this time, Lan Yaoguang did not stop the directed audio but instead heaved a sigh. “Brother Huang, there is actually one more thing. I have kept this to myself for a couple of days, thinking whether I should tell you…”
A moment later, there was no reply. Did he hang up?
Lan Yaoguang looked at the directed audio spell that was still on, and tried asking, “Brother Huang? Brother Huang are you still there?”
In fact, what Lan Yaoguang had mumbled about after that did not register at all to Di Fuyi. He drifted off again.
He finally got onto his feet when he heard Lan Yaoguang’s hoarse voice. He frowned before asking, “What is it?” His voice hinted at him not being attentive to the conversation.
“Brother Huang, I believe you have heard that the royals among the mermaids are similar to the lords among humans in that we practice polygamy. Just like myself, I have got a few wives by my side…” Lan Yaoguang was long-winded in his approach.
Di Fuyi started to lose his patience. “Are you planning to get married again? I have said before that I will not interfere with the traditions of the mermaid tribe.”
“It is not that…” Lan Yaoguang denied and mumbled something to himself.
Di Fuyi knew that Lan Yaoguang tended to be naggy, but he felt as irritated about it before as he did that day. He grew more impatient. “Get to the point. I have no interest in listening to all your nonsense!”
Lan Yaoguang took a deep breath and said, “Brother Huang, you know, my sister does not want to accept herself as the person she used to be, and does not want to be the ruler of the mermaids either. However, she relented three days ago, and promised to give it a try… Of course, she was not trying to accept a new personality but agreed to take over the position as the ruler of the mermaids. I was really happy then…”
Di Fuyi felt that Lan Yaoguang’s words were scattered all over the place, and he did not manage to figure out how to link them together. He did not know what he was trying to say.
If that happened in the past, Di Fuyi would stop him from his long-winded speech, or stop conversing with him through the jade tablet to stop himself from having to listen to all his nonsense. However, at that time, Di Fuyi was in fact listening. When he realized that Lan Yaoguang stopped in the middle of his message again, he urged him to continue. “Then?”
“Then my sister asked for a condition. Although this condition would not go against the traditions of the royal family of the mermaid tribe… I am in a dilemma, thinking that I should get your opinion.”
“What condition?” Di Fuyi knew in his heart that it was something bad.
As expected, Lan Yaoguang, after many hesitant pauses, finally told him the condition set by Xijiu. “She wants to appoint a fraudulent prince consort…”
“Dang!” Di Fuyi’s jade tablet fell onto the floor.
“Brother Huang? Are you there? Brother Huang?”
Di Fuyi flipped his sleeves, and the jade tablet levitated and landed in his palm. His voice clearly showed his frustration. “She wants to appoint a fraudulent prince consort?!”
“According to the traditions of the mermaid tribe, the ruler of the mermaids is allowed to have more than one partner, no matter the sex. According to the rules, she would be able to have three husbands. She has got two candidates in mind…” Lan Yaoguang’s voice gradually grew softer, as he could sense from the jade tablet that Di Fuyi was mad.
