Mermaid’s Tears (3)

The emperor was wearing a majestic yellow robe and looked extremely dignified; his aura seemed different from the man right before her now, so she could not be sure whether he was the same person.
The man in blue sighed softly. “Who do you think I am?” His voice was amiable, like a gentleman.
“You… Are you part of the royals?! Which prince are you?” Lan Jingyi guessed due to his similar appearance.
The man in blue looked up and smiled. He then placed his palm together lightly. “Why do you not suspect that I am the emperor?”
Lan Jingyi was speechless.
The man in blue looked at her pretty face that had turned pale. He then asked, “Surprised?”
Lan Jingyi took in a breath of air as she continued, “You… If you are the emperor… Then… are you here to save us? Under whose request are you here?”
The man in blue sighed. “You are such a naive child. I have tried so hard to capture you, why would I be here to save you? Do you think I am that free?”
The person behind everything was, in fact, the emperor of the Feixing Kingdom!
Lan Jingyi’s countenance changed. “Why did you capture us? Release me now or else Brother Huang will not forgive you or show you any mercy!”
The man in blue laughed. “So The Lord is your Brother Huang… now that is interesting.” He paced slowly towards the bloody ball, looking at Lan Jingyi who was trapped within the ball. Suddenly, he hit the wall of the cave with his palm. “I have heard that a drum made of the skin of a mermaid would produce a sound so loud that it could be heard a thousand miles away. Is that true?”
Lan Jingyi was speechless.
The man in blue examined her a little more. “Just like most mermaids, your skin looks good. Using it to make a drum would be a waste, it would be better to use it for clothing. I can sew some pretty cloud-like patterns on it, then it would be pretty and protective.”
Lan Jingyi’s face turned pale. “You… this joke… this joke is not funny. My Brother Huang…”
“Still thinking of using your Brother Huang to threaten me? If you did not mention him, I would have made it all easy, but since you have mentioned him, that made me feel quite uncomfortable. I would have to give you a taste of what I could do then.”
A short knife as thin as a cricket’s wing emerged from the man’s sleeve. Instantly, it shattered the bloody ball.
Lan Jingyi screamed and rolled down from the bloody ball. As she was about to fall into the pond, a streak of silver strands emerged from the palm of the man in blue, got hold of Lan Jingyi’s waist, and dropped her by the edge of the pond
Lan Jingyi was still unable to gather herself. Although she did not fall into the bloody gushing water, a part of her clothes caught the blood and it was like sulphuric acid as her clothes had been corroded to pieces
The skulls in the bloody pool began to shriek and jump more frantically.
As Lan Jingyi wanted to get on her feet after landing on the ground, the man in blue placed his foot on her chest, preventing her from getting up.
The man in blue was obnoxious. He did not only step on her but used his toes to inflict more pain.
Lan Jingyi was embarrassed because of the location of his toes. She screamed, “You pervert! Let go of me…”
“This is considered perverted?” Although the action of the man in blue was rather perverse, his handsome face made him look like an open-minded man. I have more perverted acts. Can you think of any of them?”
As he was talking, he used the sharp knife in his palm to slit open her placket.
