Desharow Mermaid - Chap 15
“Mr. Desaro, you named this mermaid… Agares?” Shakral widened her golden eyes in surprise, looking at Agares in front of the glass hatch in disbelief: “And it How can it answer your call, my God! It obeys your instructions? How did you do it?” ”
No, no, no! You got the doctor wrong!” I suddenly realized that I was doing the same thing again, and hurried He quickly walked away from the cabin door until he was out of sight of Agares, then he waved his hand and explained to Shakaral: “That word is not the name of the mermaid, but just a most effective pronoun for calling it, and Da Vinci and I After discussion, the meaning of this word is very likely…maybe…”
”What could it be?” Shakral followed and walked over. She adjusted her glasses and looked at me expectantly. But the next sentence was blocked in my throat, as if even my breathing was blocked, making my cheeks swollen and hot.
I know I’m blushing, because I really don’t know how to use scientific terms to interpret what I want to express.
Courtship? estrus? Courtship? Express mating wishes?
It seems that no matter how you say it, it sounds full of indescribable ambiguity. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. If I were explaining an orangutan or a monkey, an animal with similar genes to humans, I would not feel a little embarrassed, even if the orangutan showed its reproductive organs in front of me. the same.
But it was Agares, and in his presence, saying the meaning of the word became a kind of mental torture for me, which was embarrassing enough to make me crawl into a crack in the ground.
Maybe I’m subconsciously treating Agares as a human being?
No no, this is absolutely impossible!
When I was thinking wildly in my mind, I just stared at Shakral in a daze, and even the tip of my nose was sweating. Shakaral grabbed my hands and waited for my answer, which made me even more at a loss, so I could only wink to Rhine for help, but he looked at the show with a cold eye, as if he was waiting for me to ask for trouble It’s good to learn a lesson.
Shakaral re-handed me an electronic cigarette, I bit it in my mouth, and swallowed: “Yes…meaning that I am your companion.” I swore in my heart that I didn’t deliberately lie against the spirit of scientific truth-seeking , but spoke nonsense: “Perhaps because of this, mermaids are immediately attracted to this string of words. This must be a signal of special meaning in the mermaid population. As for the specific meaning, Da Vinci and I still have reservations. We need to observe it in the future.”
Shakaral was obviously disappointed by my answer, she turned her head to look at Agares, and sighed regretfully: “Lilith is a clone we have bred so hard. Thinking of burning her like this…I really don’t know how this male mermaid suddenly went crazy and used her as food…”
My heart tightened with these words, and I didn’t even dare to turn my head to look at Lily in the reservoir. Si’s tragic situation, the sense of guilt that had been stalking from just now became heavy at this moment, suppressing my heartbeat.
I couldn’t help but pressed a button on my chest: “I don’t understand this either, Da Vinci said that the mermaid has been on a hunger strike since coming here, and the dolphins in a reservoir are safe with him… …”
”So, Desaro, we need your wholehearted assistance. Only you can communicate with mermaids.” Shakral interrupted me, put a hand on my shoulder, fingers lightly through the clothes Gently pinched my bones, and said word by word, “You are indeed a biological genius as Da Vinci said. I solemnly request you to accept the employment of our research institute and take charge of the mermaid research project. I think, this research The result is also the key to your graduation inspection, right? And this result is equally important to a biotechnology research project of the Russian government.” “You mean… let me work for the government?” I took a deep
breath Taking a deep breath, she felt the pressure drop from the sky, but she couldn’t refuse her request. I intuitively think that the tone of Shakaral’s statement to me is not as if he was speaking as a doctor, but as a request with the authority of a colonel. If I refuse, I may miss the great opportunity to study mermaids. , Just thinking about this is enough to make me agree without hesitation. I nodded: “I accept.”
”Then, as a mentor, I will guide Desaro to complete the research of this project. He has no experience, and he is not a member of the research institute, doctor.” Rhine on the side quickly interjected, his tone revealing a little
unconcealable Nervous, as if there is something in the words, I have never seen Rhine look so cautious, I can’t help but feel a little strange.
Shakaral glanced at him meaningfully, folded his arms lightly, and turned his back: “Unfortunately, I mean that Desaro needs to complete the research independently, Rhine, you should believe in your own research- Sir, he is as good as you said, as a mentor, your duty has been fulfilled.” ”
No! Do it independently? Do you know what kind of terrifying creature this mermaid is? I have to learn from me. I am responsible for the safety of my life!”
Rhine protested, blocking my body with one hand, as if Shakaral would kidnap me forcibly, and his whole body exuded an unusual vigilance. This makes me really unable to understand, Rhine is not my guardian, why is there any reason to restrict my decision in this way, not only does he want to violate my body, but now he even wants to control my mind?
I will never let him succeed.
”I think I can complete independent research, Dr. Shakral!” I insisted on contradicting Rhine, retreated to Shakaral, and faced Rhine. His eyes became very complicated at some point, and I even A deep sense of regret was read from his pupils.
”Come back, Desaro, you still have a choice now.”
He looked at me, his eyes were like sharp arrows, but he said a puzzling sentence. Before I had time to think about the meaning of these words, I just Seeing Shakaral next to him, he suddenly raised his finger and touched the pen on his chest, as if he wanted to pull it out to write something, but Rhine’s expression suddenly changed at this moment, as if he saw something extremely terrifying thing, and then twitched violently as if being shocked by an electric shock, and the whole person fell to the ground.
I was stunned for a second or two, but Shakaral screamed, squatting down and shoving Rhine’s body: “Oh my God, he fainted? Let’s send him to the hospital!”
She yelled like this, and several military guards who came in with us quickly rushed in from outside. Before I could get up to check, Rhine was quickly carried out by them.
”Hey, wait, what’s wrong with him?” I followed up strangely, but was grabbed by Shakral’s clothes, “It’s nothing, don’t worry. Rhine has worked with me before, he has epilepsy, and he is prone to In this way, rest assured, he will receive immediate treatment, and above the laboratory is the best hospital in Iceland.” ”
Oh, this is amazing!” I relieved, feeling a little incredible. Rhine looks as healthy as a soldier, but he has epilepsy. No wonder he sometimes feels like a madman to me.
That night, under Shakaral’s arrangement, my desk, bed, and even a simple shower table were arranged in the observation room on the third floor, which looked like my living room. I was very satisfied with it, so I can conduct record research without distraction, and it is clear at a glance from the transparent glass floor.
However, despite the high-tech barrier equipment, being in the same room with mermaids still makes me a little scared, but Shakaral told me that the guards are at the door, as long as I call on the computer on the desk, they can come in at any time to protect my safety , And, before she left, she left me an anesthesia gun that could be fired continuously, which effectively dispelled my worries.
I think tonight is probably a sleepless night.
Because I actually have a laboratory that is completely my own, and it is under the sea. And tomorrow, I can start this merman research project that I have been looking forward to for many years.
I closed my eyes, tried to make myself fall asleep peacefully, and soon fell asleep.
