Hoping To Cut Her With A Knife
Translator:EndlessFantasy TranslationEditor:EndlessFantasy Translation
Droplets of sweat emerged from her skin and scales. Like magic, the droplets condensed into pearls, each crystal clear, rolling on the ground.
“Mermaid sweat turns into pearls; seems like this theory is not wrong after all.” The man in blue laughed, looking at Lan Jingyi who was in so much pain that even her lips were trembling. “Why did you not tear up? A mermaid’s tears are what I need.”
Lan Jingyi was in so much pain that she even thought of killing herself, but it was hard for a mermaid to tear up, she was no different. It is not that she did not think of crying; she could not.
The man in blue looked at her for a moment and sighed. “Seems like this torture is not enough…”
He moved his fingers, and the thin tip of his knife. Lan Jingyi cried out in pain as a huge scale was ripped off her by the man in blue.
Ripping off her scales was more painful than pricking at her bones. Lan Jingyi was in so much pain that she shuddered, not only sweating profusely but finally, tears emerged from her eyes.
She blinked a little, and small teardrops fell to the ground into a spherical-like pearl. This one sparkled much better than her sweat.
The man in blue lifted his fingers, and the mermaid’s tears dropped into his palm. He examined it, and shook his head. “Too small.”
He then turned his attention back towards Lan Jingyi; he sighed. “You are so stingy, not even wanting to crylarger droplets of tears. I will need to force it out myself.” He wielded the thin knife in his hand, and a couple of scaled were ripped off this time.
She was like a fish out of the water, resisting it for a while finally, big droplets of tears rolled down. Within her tears were blood; a mermaid’s tears were half red and half transparent, like a pretty cat’s eye, rolling about on the ground.
Lan Waihu was in unspeakable terror just looking at it from above!
Although she hated Lan Jingyi and wanted to cut her with a knife, looking at the scene before her made her think twice!
The man in blue looked like a gentleman, but what he did made him as cruel as a devil. That made Lan Waihu gather insight into the base level of a person’s cruelty.
That mermaid had helped the man in blue with such a great deed, and he instead treated her so cruelly. She could only expect worse from him later on.
Lan Waihu was terrified as well. Her eyes were dilated as she stared at the man in blue. If a cold gaze could kill someone, the man in blue had already been killed by Lan Waihu!
The man in blue held the mermaid’s tears in his palms and said softly, “Still not enough.” He bowed his head down and looked at Lan Jingyi who almost passed out. “I will rip two more scales off your body. Cry as you wish.”
The tip of the knife touched her scales, and Lan Jingyi was so scared that she shrieked. “I will cry. Stop ripping! I will do it…”
She cried out all the tears she had throughout her life.
The main in blue had collected a heap of mermaid’s tears, and finally, he was satisfied. Then, a pair of sparkling eyes turned towards Lan Waihu who was still suspended in the air.
Lan Waihu could feel her hair standing on its ends!
She cried in a fury, “You can kill me but please do not humiliate me! Just kill me if you want to! Or torture me until I cry!”
The man in blue sighed. “Such a charming young lady like you… how could I bear to let you cry? A mermaid’s tears are precious, but those that belong to you, Little Fox, are not valuable at all.”
Lan Waihu looked at him warily. “Then what do you want?”
