Desharow Mermaid - Chap 63
What surprised me even more was that I happened to land right on top of the Japanese boy (perhaps called a daily mermaid) used by Shinichi. He was obviously startled by the movement I made. Lying behind the glass, he looked at me vigilantly, but when I knelt down and looked at him, his eyes suddenly widened in surprise, but immediately showed a look of expectation and fear, and his webbed claws were attached to the glass. , seems to be begging me to let him out.
I looked around, and before anyone noticed me, I bent down to check the handles on the hatch, but I immediately found that the handles were fastened with heavy metal locks. After taking out Rhine’s keys and trying them one by one, none of them matched. Right now, there is no other way but to break the glass and let these mermaids out, but once I make a movement, maybe before I release a few mermaids, I will be beaten into a sieve by the surrounding armed men. But I need the help of mermaids, at least let one be my companion, so that I can find Nakamiya as soon as possible. I can only
release the one in front of me, because I can be sure that he used to be human and knows part of the conspiracy we are in. , we can better help each other.
”Hey, I let you out, but you can’t act rashly, you must flee to the sea with me immediately, I need your help, find Nakamiya to save your companions, do you understand what I mean? What’s your name?” I asked. Leaning softly in front of the glass, he said in Japanese that he hadn’t completely forgotten.
He looked at me, a pair of bright black pupils lit up, nodded vigorously, moved his lips, and made a mouth shape: “Xuecun.” I wasn’t sure if I
heard it correctly, but just repeated, All right, Snow Village.
There is no time for me to hesitate and waste, I must act immediately before dawn. I visually measured the distance from here to the sea. We need to pass a few meters of unsheltered decks and cross the railings. This process is very easy to be attacked. I have to create a little confusion to distract them. Not too difficult for me with night vision in the dark.
Thinking in this way, I took out the gun in my back, looked down at him, and made a gesture that he would come out as soon as I broke the glass, and he nodded knowingly, leaning on the corner where the bullet could not hit , wait for me to shoot. I leaned against the obstacles where the armed men could not immediately find me, aimed sideways at the other end of the ship, and pulled the trigger. The bullet immediately caused a commotion on the other ship, and one after another shouted and boiled not far away. While no one was paying attention, I quickly put the pistol on the round glass window and fired again. , Just heard a bang, a few cracks burst out of the glass in an instant, I then repaired a few feet, and saw it immediately shattered to pieces.
There was a crash from below, and Xuecun burst out of the water. Before I could even react, I saw the blue fish tail brushing against my body in the blink of an eye, grabbing my back collar with both hands, and leaping across the deck in an unbelievable line. The arc fell straight into the sea, and it plunged into the sea water like an ice-breaking awl in an instant. The gunshots chased us above us, and I could still catch a glimpse of clusters of flames flickering under my feet from the corner of my eye. But soon it was swallowed up by the darkness from the deep water. After everything quieted down, Xuecun held me and swam upward again, but I knew that when we surfaced, we would definitely not be in the original position.
I saw us swimming up towards the submerged cliffs of the island, weaving through caves. The inside was narrow and deep, so Xuecun had to let me go and let me follow him through. The light is mottled and changing in the deep sea water, like a mysterious dream, which makes my thoughts wander involuntarily with the light. Xuecun swam very fast in front of me, his fish tail swung so gracefully and naturally, and the blue scales sparkled with bright blue ripples, like a small galaxy.
If I didn’t know it, I would never have guessed that he was once a human being like me. According to the years and months mentioned by the old woman, Xuecun has spent nearly sixty years in the form of a mermaid in the sea, and he may have already adapted to this form of life. Could it be that Xuecun’s present is also my future destiny?
Although I may really have feelings for Agares, I cannot accept that I am willing to turn into a mermaid, bid farewell to my homeland, my foundation forever, and go to their world, just like Snow Village. He probably was also unwilling to give up everything he had as a human being before going back to visit his mother, so he was caught and used by Shinichi and the others.
But my body has undergone such a mutation, if I refuse to go to his world with Agares (of course he may choose to force me away), where should I go in this world? Will my hometown and school still accept me, can I return to human society? Where is my shelter in this big world?
I was thinking about all this in a chaotic and bewildered mind, the surrounding space slowly became brighter, and the halo above became concentrated, and the mottled spots of light gathered into a whole piece of light like blue glass. The top of our heads seemed to be A lake within an island.
Xuecun led me to swim upwards, and I reached the surface of the water in a short while. I found that we came to the entrance of a huge cave, or that we were already in a cave, and in front of us was a cave within a cave. If there was no one to lead them, it would be difficult for these Nazis to find this place, because there is no Other entrances, except underwater.
The cave is about 200 feet high and dark, like the body cavity of a prehistoric monster. When I look around, I can only judge its territory by the faintly glowing cave insects on the rock walls. area. It is not formed naturally. In the lake where we are, there are many white ruins that look like artificially cast ruins. Some blue light balls of unknown material float on the surface of the water. There is one, just like the constellations composed of stars in the night sky, with regular distances and formations.
What are these things? I carefully observed the light sphere closest to me. It was like a cluster of electric ions surrounded by a glass cover, and it was also like a miniature version of lightning, bursting out with blue light in a cloud of luminous mist. . I couldn’t help stretching out my hand to touch it, but a green webbed claw grabbed my wrist. Yukimura stared at it and said softly: “Don’t touch it, you will die because of it. These blue light balls are “isolated galaxies” ’, it is a protective layer that prevents nuclear radiation from completely destroying the “channel”.”
”Nuclear radiation?” Seeing the world of mermaids, seeing it… turned into a huge cemetery… Forgive me, I can only think of this adjective.”
”Yes, nuclear radiation.” Xuecun lowered his eyelids thoughtfully, his voice trembling, “You are not from that era, but you should know about the atomic bomb incident in Hiroshima during World War II. When I knew that my hometown suffered a disaster, I wanted to go back to pick up my family and take refuge in Atlantis. But I didn’t expect that the power of the atomic bomb almost destroyed it. You see, yes, it became a huge cemetery, and almost all the mermaids died Die like those civilians in Hiroshima, they turned into fossils, extinct like dinosaurs hundreds of millions of years ago.”
I shook my head in disbelief, I couldn’t believe the silent sea I saw in my hallucinations, and those under the sea. The bones of the dead were actually caused by the war in our world, “How could…” ”
Of course,” Yukimura smiled sadly, “Maybe no one thought that the real Atlantis was hidden in the core of the earth, Another independent galaxy and life system formed there, and every trench is the entrance to it. This is why the atomic bomb can endanger it. The legendary Atlantis civilization no longer exists, only The remaining leaders and some young remnants who were not born and did not suffer from nuclear radiation continued the population as much as possible. But even so, the wildfire of war still burned on us again.” My heart was dull, and I couldn’t
breathe Feeling angry, he clenched his fists unconsciously and took a deep breath, “Where is Nakamiya? We need to let it open the passage, otherwise those Nazis will destroy this last remaining home of yours.” Xuecun nodded
solemnly Nodding, and then I saw him swimming towards the cave ahead, raised his head slightly, opened his arms like a sacrifice, and called out to the giant beast like Agares did last time. Echoes in the cave. Almost instantly, I felt the whole cave shake, a black silhouette slowly peeled off from the darkness, those blood-red eyes turned to look at Xuecun, and fell on me again, as if seeing Agares He lowered his head, like a respectful veteran bowing his head to me to show respect.
This made me a little embarrassed, as if everywhere I went was considered to belong to Agares, I scratched my head, “Hey, uh, Mr. Nakamiya, Aga… your leader needs you to open the road to Atlanta Tees passage, they are imprisoned.”
Nakamiya nodded knowingly like a human being, that huge body bent down, got into the lake, turned into a black lightning bolt and disappeared in the depths of the lake, Yukimura grabbed my arm and pulled me Pulled out of the lake, leaning against the rock wall next to it, at the moment it just left the water, a vortex rolled up from the depths of the lake in an instant, engulfing those blue light balls to form a hurricane of lightning and thunder in the water, Accompanied by the loud bang like the cracking of the earth’s crust and the shaking of the surrounding earth like an earthquake, I was amazed to see a black gap cracked in the bottom of the lake that was originally as calm as a mirror, as if an ancient giant beast slowly opened and devoured it. all eyes.
The rock wall above my head also cracked, light and gravel poured down like a broken shell, and the blue hurricane rose from the bottom, like a gushing water, suddenly threw Xuecun and me into the air , I felt myself twirling and floating in the wind, trying to open my eyes wide to see all this, but I suddenly saw several helicopters flying towards the island in the distant sky, and there were still a few helicopters on the fuselage. Logo of Russia! All of a sudden, I became excited as if I saw my relatives and my homeland, and subconsciously shouted to the other side, but the hurricane made me roll a few times in the air, separating me from the snow village far away.
The sky and the earth seemed to be torn apart by this hurricane emitting blue electric light at this time. I looked down from above and saw that the black crack was getting bigger and bigger, gradually wrapping the entire island like a huge beast’s mouth. Being on the sea surface, it sank downward like a collapse, to be precise, it was swallowed by the sea cave on the bottom of the sea. I know that’s the entrance to Atlantis.
The strong wind scraped my body, messing up my sight and thinking, and a sense of panic rose in my heart, which made me tremble all over and turned my eyes to those Nazi ships. Rafal and the others are still on board! Damn it, I didn’t expect this to happen after the “door” opened, and it happened so quickly, why didn’t Agares remind me!
Gotta get those helicopters to save them!
”Hey, hey!” I immediately waved my hands and shouted at the helicopters that were flying closer and closer, but they obviously chose to go around because they were afraid of the power of the hurricane. A tree jumped up, hugged the shaky trunk and shouted for help. Only one flew towards me and dropped the rope ladder. I immediately grabbed it and climbed up. But the rescuers above had just picked me up, and before I could even react, they pressed me tightly on the seat and handcuffed my hands behind my back.
That’s when I realized that maybe because I was wearing Rhein’s clothes, they thought I was with these Nazis! I yelled in Russian: “Hey, you are mistaken, I am Russian, let me go!”
I raised my head and struggled vigorously, but they still held me tightly unmoved, and the plane flew towards those The Nazis were flying towards the sinking ship, circling in the sky, I stared down and searched for the figures of Rafal and Agares, but I only saw the Nazi armed personnel running and jumping towards the lifeboat, I couldn’t help but feel anxious: “They …I mean the people who called for your help, they are on the second ship, please go down and save them!” ”
Call, call, Asuka No. 2! No. 1 was hit by a hurricane and crashed, the wind damage range It is rapidly expanding, give up the rescue operation, and retreat immediately!”
A loud pager sounded from the driver’s seat.
”No, no!” I was so frightened that I almost jumped up, hitting the glass frantically with my elbows, but was firmly pressed on the seat by the two people next to me, one on the left and one on the right. The boats and islands disappeared on the sea, and a black shadow suddenly emerged from the center of the blue storm, as if Satan had swallowed the darkness of the entire world, turning into a sharp arrow that was about to pierce into the dark abyss inside. That shadow was very far away from me, but I knew it was Agares, and he was looking at the helicopter that was taking me away from him.
But in such a short moment, I saw the blue hurricane spread out a circle of dazzling light like an atomic bomb exploded. The island, the Nazi ships, and Agares all disappeared in the darkness. without a trace. As if it had never been in this world, it was suddenly erased from the curtain in front of my eyes.
I stared blankly at the night sky, my heart suddenly went blank, and my brain went blank.
