Chapter 43


I gave you a pair of eyes that can see everything underwater, and the ability to breathe freely in the water.

Now you can compete with the speed of fish, fight with the strongest beasts, jump out of the sea to look at the sky, and even dive into the bottom to explore.

I will give you all I can have in exchange for you to be my long-term companion.

Welcome to the underwater world.

A pair of hands that were clearly pale because of the lack of sunlight pinned Shen Fengyue’s hair behind his ear, revealing the small silver-white fin-shaped ear.

“You…!” Shen Fengyue touched his fin-like ear with trembling hands, and under his touch, the ear moved flexibly, “You tricked me.”

The black tail tightened slightly and became more entangled with the silver tail. Siren put his chin on top of Shen Fengyue’s head. Without saying a word, he just kept stroking his back.

Shen Fengyue had the psychological shadow of being entangled by the tail while his legs were being crushed. Feeling the grasp of Siren’s tail tightening, he felt afraid. After resting in his arms for a while to recover his strength, he tried to move his tail.

This feeling was very strange. Shen Fengyue never thought that one day his legs would become a fishtail. With a thought, he made the tail sway gently.

The silver fishtail moved to get rid of the binding, but the black fishtail refused to let go. Silver and black were entwined, as the black tail firmly trapped the silver tail, not letting it move.

“Let go of me.” Shen Fengyue scolded and pushed Siren back with force, his tail finally broke free from the shackles, and he also used the tail to smack at the opponent’s waist.

As soon as he escaped, he was about to rush out, but was stopped by Siren, “Anton, I…” He looked blank and innocent as if he didn’t know what went wrong.

Shen Fengyue turned his head and bared his teeth at him, “Don’t follow me!”

Siren hurriedly stopped in place to watch the figure go away. After thinking about it, he still followed, feeling uneasy, maintaining a distance of not far or near.

Shen Fengyue swam tens of meters in a jerky way, while learning how to use the new body without a teacher, and rushed straight toward the sea like an arrow.

He leaped from the water, brushed back his long hair, and looked up to find that the moon was in the middle of the sky, fading slowly, and in the blink of an eye, it dispersed like a vague mass.

Shen Fengyue found the previous reef, rolled over, and sat on it, calling the system, “System, are you still there?”


“I’ve even changed my species?” He opened his palms and found that some web-like things were connecting his fingers. With a little force on his fingers, sharp claws were exposed from the flesh.

System, “Yes.”

“Can I change back?”

The system hesitated for a while and said, “Old Shen, don’t think about it. I have checked the information, and after reading many experiences of this fish transforming ceremony, I have seen no situation where someone changed back.”

Shen Fengyue sighed quietly.

“Old Shen, you might have already guessed it. Siren is a bug. Why not kill him?”

The sharp claws embedded in the reef, and a piece was cut off. Shen Fengyue pinched the gravel in his hand and did not answer when he heard the words.

After a long time, he confided, “I can’t bear it.”

“After getting along for so long, I still have feelings.”

“System, I plan to give up this mission.”

System, “Are you sure about it?”

“Yeah.” Shen Fengyue continued, “You wait for me to figure out a way to end myself and quickly leave.”

The system was silent for a moment, and after Shen Fengyue thought it had disappeared, it suddenly said, “I respect your thoughts.”


After a while, the system disappeared, and Shen Fengyue said, “Come out, I know you are there.” There was some anger suppressed underneath his words.

There is something like mutual telepathy between the mermen, and as long as they are close enough, they can feel each other’s presence.

Siren emerged from the water to reveal his figure. He consciously kept a certain distance from Shen Fengyue. Seeing that Shen Fengyue did not look at him, he sank aggrievedly, leaving only half of his head floating on the water.

Although he pretended to be indifferent, in fact, Shen Fengyue had been monitoring him secretly from the corner of his eye. Seeing Siren like this, his heart was even angrier.

The feeling of hitting the cotton with a fist and not only feeling soft but seeing the cotton bouncing back on you is really annoying.

So here Shen Fengyue looked at the sky, sea, or in the distance, but didn’t give an eye to the siren who was alone and guarding him not far away.

The cold wind blew in the middle of the night, while Shen Fengyue sat there not knowing for how long. Siren also kept guarding him until Shen Fengyue’s eyelids slid down and looked sleepy.

“Anton, let’s go home.” Siren slowly approached Shen Fengyue step by step, called out tentatively, and after finding the other party’s face was dazed and confused, he became bolder and gently pulled his fingertips.

He stretched out his hand and pulled, and the merman sitting on the stone slipped and fell into his arms.

“Let’s go home.”

He carried Shen Fengyue underwater, and Shen Fengyue, who was still so sleepy, woke up halfway but pretended to be asleep in order not to be so embarrassed.

After arriving at the palace, Siren put him on the soft shell bed and wrapped him tightly with the quilt. After doing this, he stood in front of the bed and looked at the person on the bed.

Shen Fengyue, who was pretending to be asleep, froze and kept his body still as the scorching gaze shone straight across his eyelids. He could not help but pretend to turn over and talk in his sleep.

This sound awoke Siren from the daze, he moved, approached the bed step by step, and finally thought about slipping into the bed and lying beside Shen Fengyue, his arms gently resting on his waist, and not making any movement after that.

Shen Fengyue has always been a man of his word and strong action. He always does what he says, so if he decides to kill himself, it would never be a lie.

After a few days of buffer time, he calmed down a lot, and finally decided to starve himself to death – although the system can turn on the pain shield, it is still difficult for an ordinary person to stab himself or something.

Therefore, when the mermen under Siren came to deliver food, Shen Fengyue ignored them, lying still on the bed, and treated them negatively. As soon as Siren came, he smashed things at him frantically and drove him away.

As time went on, with Shen Fengyue’s unilateral efforts, he really became thinner and thinner. He raised his hand to look at his wrist that had already lost a lot of mass and was very satisfied.

When Shen Fengyue insisted on not eating, Siren would bring something over and forcefully feed him, but because he had not eaten for many days and was suddenly forced to eat, his fragile stomach couldn’t take it and vomited all the things.

This day, Shen Fengyue retched again and vomited so much that even his bile came out. His mouth was bitter, as he lay back on the bed weakly and said to Siren, who was in a daze with a dinner plate beside him, “Go out, I really can’t eat anymore.”

“Anton…” Siren’s eyes straightened, and he murmured, “Don’t be mad at me, okay?”

“Not angry.” Shen Fengyue pulled the quilt up, lay down with his hands folded on his abdomen, and found a position he thought was comfortable.

Hearing that, Siren only felt an unspeakable sadness in his heart. Obviously, Anton didn’t blame him and was not angry, but he was sad, especially sad.

He silently walked away with the plate. “I’ll go find you something else to eat.”

Siren left in a hurry. Shen Fengyue glanced at his red eyes when he turned around and sighed again.

His body was declining, and he knew this better than anyone else. The mind wants to eat, but the body is extremely resistant.

“Come on, Old Shen, believe in yourself. You can do it!” The system cheered him on, “If you can’t stand it, do you need me to show some pictures of late-night food to you?”

Shen Fengyue looked at the fishes swimming above, and sighed in the depths of his soul, “I’m so hungry—”

The system has been with him in so many words, and it can be considered that there is some friendship between them. So it couldn’t bear to see him like this, and tried to persuade, “Why don’t we use a knife to end this, this way is too slow, I cannot stand watching.”

Shen Fengyue smiled bitterly and said, “I don’t have the strength to stab myself to death now.”

“I want to sleep for a while. Maybe I’ll be lucky enough to fall asleep and die?”

“OK, good night.”

“Good night system.”

Shen Fengyue closed his eyes to calm his nerves and used sleep to resist the strong hunger. When he was dazed, he suddenly heard a mournful song coming from outside the door.

The sound was extremely low, muffled, and seemed like a crying tone. The song was filled with so much sadness that it couldn’t be melted away, making people sob at the slightest of hearing it.

He leaned slightly to the right.

“Tsk, this silly fish.”

The singing outside the door seemed to sound all night, and the next morning he heard Siren whispering in his ear, “Anton, let’s see the moon again, one last time.”

Shen Fengyue responded vaguely.

After that, he felt a slightly warm body protecting him, as if afraid that he would hurt him if they were too close, so he separated a little and wrapped him lightly.

He didn’t know how long it took. Maybe it was the day that Siren agreed with him, and Shen Fengyue was picked up from the bed.

Siren held the scrawny, dying Shen Fengyue and slowly moved upstream. Shen Fengyue rested his head on his chest, drooping his eyes to look at the surrounding scenery.

For many days, he had been lying on the bed like a corpse and had not seen the sea for a long time, so he looked carefully.

It was pitch black at the moment. As Siren moved, the black gradually faded away, and the blue that belonged to the sea leaked out little by little. There were fish passing by from time to time, either in groups or alone.

With more and more blue paint on the canvas, Siren emerged from the sea and hugged Shen Fengyue onto the big reef where he courted him for the first time.

“Anton, the moon is different tonight.” He was half immersed in the water and his arm was raised to point at the moon as he said this to Shen Fengyue.

Shen Fengyue tried his best to open his eyes and look at the moon.

There were no stars, not a single one, only a small moon in the pitch-black sky, which looked inconspicuous and lonely.

There was no wind, therefore no waves, and the sea was terribly calm.

Siren grabbed Shen Fengyue’s thin hands, touched them one by one, and finally intertwined his fingers, he looked at the moon and said, “That day was also a night with shining moonlight, filled with stars and a full moon hanging in the sky, I gave you the token of love from the merpeople, and you accepted it.”

“So I thought you accepted me.” He lowered his voice, sounding aggrieved, “You promised me.”

“It’s possible for those who have undergone the fish-turning ceremony to change back. Only merpeople know this method.” After that, he looked up at Shen Fengyue, and traced his appearance, little by little. He looked like he wanted to imprint his lover deeply into his heart through those blue eyes.

Siren swam in front of Shen Fengyue, raised his body, and lightly pecked on his lips.

He suddenly smiled. The water in his blue eyes slowly flowed as he stretched out his sharp claws to dig between his brows. All this happened so fast that Shen Fengyue was caught off guard, and it was impossible to stop him.

The sharp claws were deeply embedded in the flesh, a blue diamond-shaped spar was dug out from it, and Siren forcibly stuffed it into Shen Fengyue’s mouth when he was dumbfounded.

That thing melted in the mouth, turned into a liquid, slipped into the body, and disappeared.

The blue blood of the merman flowed out from between his eyebrows, flowing down his face. A mist of water rose in his eyes as it condensed and slipped down. It merged with the blue liquid flowing down, and the blue pearls condensed with blood and tears fell out one by one, stirring up a series of small puddles into the water.



Siren had a smile on his face, but his body sank quickly, sinking into the bottomless sea, leaving only ripples and disappearing without a trace.

The effect of the blue spar came into play, and Shen Fengyue felt his lower body itch, and pieces of silver-white scales fell off. As they peeled off, the tail separated and turned into human legs again.

The moon was surprisingly bright at the time, and two white human legs appeared in the moonlight.

He has become a human again.

Shen Fengyue touched the corner of his lips and then started trying to vomit something out, but his stomach was empty and there was nothing, only the stomach’s acid was spit out continuously.

He felt wetness on his face, reached out to touch it, and found that he didn’t know when, but he cried.

Shen Fengyue looked at the vast and empty sea in front of him, shook his head, and smiled bitterly.

“Stupid.” He snapped.

[Ding Dong, the bug has been cleared, processing to leave the world.]
