Desharow Mermaid - Chap 12
“Desaro, do you really want to study this kind of night devil mermaid, even if you may pay the price of your life? Do you know that mermaids cannibalize people?” The old woman looked at the dark sea with her eyes wide open to the limit In the distance, every wrinkle on the old face seemed to tremble slightly due to the fear of deep memory.
I took a deep breath of the wind with a strong smell of the sea, and nodded: “I have heard such rumors, but there are no specific facts to verify it. This is why I came to you.” I put my hand gently On the old man’s rickety back, guide her to continue talking as gently as possible: “I beg you to tell me about the mermaid in the shipwreck, and don’t you also need someone to talk to? If possible, I would like to temporarily I will be your psychiatrist to resolve your knot.”
She seemed to be touched, and she turned her head to the side. Those cloudy eyes reflected the few bonfires behind, staring at me with complex and unpredictable eyes, hooked hands on my wrist, nails almost sunk into my flesh, as if testing my strength in this way sincerity. And I resisted the eccentricity of the mental patient, and looked at her firmly.
In any case, this is what Mr. Shinichi once mentioned to me, the witness who may have seen the mermaid in the shipwreck, even if her words are not very reliable, I am not willing to give up the slightest price.
The old man let out a long sigh and closed his eyes.
Under her drooping eyelids, the contours of the eyeballs began to shake out of focus, like a sign of a long-time voyager when he landed on land. I knew that she was indulging in those years at sea, and I couldn’t help waiting with bated breath.
After a long silence, the old man let out a long sigh and spit out the words intermittently: “At that time, I and a group of adventurous companions had the same idea of yearning to see the mermaid as you. Our cruise ship was on the sea. We have been wandering in places where there are mermaids for several months, and finally one day, we successfully caught a male mermaid. But we did not expect that the mermaid is such a terrifying creature… He will sniff you first, deeply, as if judging the prey The smell is the same, if you make it disgusting, he will break your neck and tear you to pieces…”
When she said this, her breath suddenly became short of breath, and she opened her eyes suddenly: “It was a night like a nightmare. I saw with my own eyes that several of my companions were used as food by mermaids, and only I… Only I… hid in the secret dark cabin. I was too scared to make a sound, and finally I watched that guy take my son! He was taken by the mermaid just like that I fell into the bottom of the sea and never came back… I really regret it… I really regret it…”
She repeated the string of syllables, shaking her head, I knew that her mental illness had relapsed, so I couldn’t help but immediately supported her by the shoulders, trying to Put the prepared sedative into her arm. But at this moment, the eyes of the old man burst into tears, his dry hands tightly grasped my collar, and he showed a strange and crazy smile: “Desaro, believe me, if you are strong on the sea I want to see Night Furies, they will sense it…they like handsome young men who smell good…you are…just like my son…” I was dumbfounded by her crazy words, knowing that these are
very It may be a completely unbelievable conjecture, and I can’t help but feel a little frustrated. Suddenly, someone patted my shoulder hard. I turned around and saw Mr. Shinichi who had died long ago. His face was pale and swollen, covered with seaweed, and there were two deep black holes in his eye sockets: “Desaro , believe her, you will see the mermaid…”
I took a step back bluntly, but felt that my legs and feet were a little strange, I looked down and saw that my waist was covered with scales and turned into a long silver-gray fishtail.
I yelled, and suddenly woke up from the nightmare, dripping with cold sweat. I lifted it up and looked down. My legs and feet were fine, and I was wearing a pair of hospital trousers.
How did you have such a paradoxical dream? I even dreamed about what happened a few years ago, and saw the ghost of Mr. Shinichi…
I thought of the crazy words that the old woman said to me in the dream, and Mr. Shinichi’s terrifying appearance, and I couldn’t help feeling a chill down my spine. It’s just that I didn’t expect that those prophecies about me seeing a mermaid that I didn’t take seriously, turned out to be a prophecy.
But, why am I lying on the bed again? Shouldn’t I be studying mermaids with Da Vinci in the deep water laboratory? By the way, I remember that guy suddenly went crazy and let the mermaid out!
Later, what happened later?
I try my best to recall everything that happened before, but the memory stays in the scene where the mermaid crawled out from behind the hatch, and then, just like before, a fault seems to be formed in my brain, and the memory jumps directly to the scene of my nightmare scene.
In the end what happened? I touched my head and felt that my forehead was hot and my brain was heavy. I propped myself up and planned to take a shower to wake up, but just as I moved my thighs, I felt soreness in my lower body, and I was so limp from the waist down, as if my spine was gone, it was like someone punched my ass hard .
How could this happen…
Maybe I fell down the stairs in a panic, not only hurt my butt, but also fainted?
I touched my buttocks wonderingly, and felt that it was very possible, and it seemed that this was the only reason that could explain it.
At this moment, there was a click of the door being pushed open, and the sound of leather boots stepping on the ground came from far to near, and stopped at the door.
Regarding the fact that the setting is not a bug
, it seems that many girls feel that there is a bug in the setting. Although these will be explained in the text later, I really want to be said to have a bug, so I opened a separate chapter in advance to explain the problem of mermaid breeding.
The setting of this article is:
1. Why do male mermaids look for males: Mermaids are deep-sea creatures, and they need to stay in the deep sea for a long time for reproduction and fragile juveniles. Now the environment pollutes sea water and heats up, causing the reproductive process of female mermaids to be destroyed, and the young mermaids are difficult to survive, that is, they cannot grow into adult fish normally, and the female mermaids gradually lose their role in the population and are regarded as nutrients. They have evolved another way of reproduction, through the male mermaid having sex with the male, the cells are infected and assimilated into the mermaid to achieve the purpose of expanding the population, avoiding the process of growth and premature death.
Second, Guliang also asked about not having children, it is only assimilated by natural mermaids, and a mermaid chooses a mate for a lifetime, which does not play a fundamental role in expanding the population and preventing extinction. It seems that the setting is flawed and has bugs Same.
No, it’s just that maybe everyone is used to seeing perfect settings in romance novels, but this is sci-fi and danmei. Sci-fi is based on reality, and realism is only when there are shortcomings. There are flaws in the evolution of any creature, especially creatures whose functions have developed to a height without natural enemies, such as saber-toothed tigers and dinosaurs, which have not escaped the fate of extinction. Environment changes are synchronized. In this story I follow the theory of evolution. Of course, it won’t affect him, and extinction will be a matter of centuries, because mermaids have a long lifespan.
The long-winded end, I hope that I will stop digging into the sci-fi setting. The author is really not a physics department of the biology department, but has a relatively big brain.
