WCBL: The last two chapters are kind of different from the other extras, since the last two chapters have nothing to do with the main storyline of this novel, and it’s more like a continuation of Xia Ye’s dream more in detail. (Aka, Baby Fish) So Enjoy!
Tang Jinyu had a low-grade fever a few days ago. He always got sick when he was a child. He slowly got better when he was older. He was able to run and jump, and he was not as thin. However, there would always be minor problems intermittently throughout the year. His body became weaker, and when he went to the hospital to see a doctor, they only said that his resistance was weakened and he needed more care at home.
Xia Ye drove him to school, touched his forehead halfway, frowned and said, “Don’t go, I’ll take you to the hospital.”
Tang Jinyu shook his head. He only came out of the hospital yesterday, and the doctor couldn’t find anything wrong.
Xia Ye turned around and said to him, “Then go home. I’m not relieved seeing you go to school like this.”
Tang Jinyu sat in the co-pilot faintly. He was exhausted and did not speak for a long time. Xia Ye took a moment to take a look and found that the little guy was drowsy again, as if he had been more lethargic these days.
Xia Ye took him back to their small home, which was still the previous apartment. Tang Jinyu used to come here to do his homework. He lived here for a long time. Xia Ye once wanted to change to a bigger house, but looked at the little guy reluctantly and delayed it.
After entering the house, Xia Ye put the person on the bed in the bedroom and went to the kitchen to boil some sweetened pear water. His brother liked to eat this in the past when he caught a cold.
But when Xia Ye was cooking and brought it over, there was no one in the room.
The thin blanket on the bed was lifted and the pillow was still there, but there was no one sleeping there. Xia Ye put down the small bowl and called his name in the room. Sure enough, he heard the sound of water coming from the bathroom, and there was a little response, “Brother, I’m here, you, you don’t come here!”
How could Xia Ye feel relieved? He immediately looked for him: “Why did you take a bath while you are still sick?” He opened the door and stepped inside. Tang Jinyu’s T-shirt soaked in the water was not taken off, and it was wet on his body. Xia Ye obviously felt that the water was cold, and was a little angry for a while, “What’s the matter, you don’t want hot water for a bath…”
Half through his sentence, he went completely silent. He looked at Tang Jinyu in the bathtub in surprise. His upper body was the same as usual, but the shorts on the lower body had been torn off and left aside. At this moment, his legs became a golden fish’s tail, with scales shining brightly and charming under the bathroom light.
Tang Jinyu was lying on the edge of the bathtub with his hair wet. It was probably the effect of just differentiating into adult fish. His skin color was originally white, but now it was even brighter and smooth. A few drops of water rolled from his chin to the collarbone, looking flustered. At the moment when Xia Ye’s eyes met his, he only felt that he was bewitched, he didn’t care about anything, and just wanted to comfort him.
Xia Ye bit the tip of his tongue and made his eyes clearer. He had only heard that the differentiated mermaid would have a great influence on ordinary people, but he had never thought it would be so powerful.
Tang Jinyu’s face is more beautiful than usual, his complexion is fairer, and his eyebrows are more clearly set off. He looked younger, like a little mermaid who has just split into adulthood. His face was flushed, and his eyes were consciously moist. He looked at Xia Ye and said, “I don’t know what’s going on. I was all hot just now, so I wanted to soak in water, and then I ran to the bathroom to put the water in it. Then… it became like this, brother, what should I do?”
Tang Jinyu is 22 years old this year. He has already passed the differentiation period. He didn’t know what to do now. While he was thinking, his fishtail was not obedient. It shakes by itself, and brings out some water from the bathtub to sprinkle outside. Tang Jinyu hurriedly pressed his own tail down, but the bathtub is too small for him now, so he slid down and choked on a mouthful of water.
Xia Ye quickly went over to help him up and hugged him and said, “It’s okay, it’s okay, I’ll take you to the hospital, and we will find a doctor to check it.” He thought about it, and his tone became firmer, “You just didn’t keep up with nutrition when you were a kid, your development is slower than other people.”
Xia Ye took the blanket and wiped the person clean, found a bathrobe to wrap him up, and hugged him out. He was also inexperienced in contacting mermaids for the first time. The teacher taught some of them before in school, but they were all some popular research that does not give detailed instructions on how to take care of mermaids.
Xia Ye originally wanted to wait for his brother to split up at the age of 18, to see if there was a chance to learn, but his brother has not shown signs of splitting, so he didn’t go to learn.
Xia Ye regrets it very much now.
Especially after arriving at the hospital, he found that his brother’s fish tail probably lacked moisture on it, his legs changed back.
Fortunately, there were always one or two spare clothes in the car. Xia Ye took a pair of looser sweatpants and put them on for him. Tang Jinyu just changed back and couldn’t grasp his balance for a while. Not only could he not control the tail of the fish, but now he has no strength to walk. His legs are as soft as noodles.
Xia Ye put on socks for him, without shoes, and went to the hospital with him personally.
He went to a mermaid hospital, and many people were walking with their partners, so it was not too strange.
Tang Jinyu lay in Xia Ye’s arms and watched the people around him all the way. Both men and women were one-on-one. The occasional single mermaid was accompanied by his parents. It seemed that this mermaid would be set up with a partner within two years after splitting up. Otherwise, it will be difficult to survive the breeding period… Tang Jinyu also learned these basics when he was studying, but he never blushed like he did now.
He is different from these mermaids. He is the first to split after marriage, right?
Tang Jinyu was too nervous. He secretly covered his lower abdomen, his brother put a lot in last night. What should he do? Will he already have a baby?
Xia Ye took him to the doctor. Tang Jinyu had just become lethargic, especially when the office was warmer. He started to doze off soon after he came in, but he still opened his eyes very hard to listen to what the doctor said.
The doctor is a very kind middle-aged man. After seeing this, he said to Xia Ye: “This is rarely seen in this situation, but occasionally there will be one or two cases, which will not harm the body. On the contrary, after differentiation, his body will be healthier now, you can bring him bubble water appropriately.”
Tang Jinyu struggled to open his eyes again.
The doctor said: “You can hold your little partner and let him sleep for a while. The loss of physical strength just after differentiation is huge.”
Xia Ye held the person in his arms, Tang Jinyu smelled his breath and felt much more relieved, and soon fell asleep slowly with his head buried in front of his chest.
The doctor smiled and said, “He is very dependent on you, how long have you been together?”
Xia Ye said: “We are already married.”
The doctor was a little surprised, but he just took a look at the age on the medical record sheet. It seems alright, he has just reached the legal marriage age, and now society is relatively open. This is the first time he has seen a young couple who bind his partner in such a hurry. The doctor told him some precautions for caring for his mermaid, and prescribed some moisturizing ointments, as well as nutrients for the maintenance of mermaid scales. At the same time, he told him: “The reason why your partner has a low fever this month It’s because he is preparing to split, and at the same time that does not rule out the reason that he has received enough physical stimulation…”
The doctor aggravated the word “enough” and looked at Xia Ye and coughed, and hinted at him.
Xia Ye said: “We can live a normal married life, right?”
The doctor said: “It’s possible that a mermaid will enter the breeding period in the second year after differentiation, especially at his current age, it will be time to need you right away. What I mean is that you should also prepare yourself. If other mermaids have to wait for a year, your mermaid may not be able to wait for a month.”
Only then did Xia Ye realize that he had just thought about it the other way around, but he was still worried about Tang Jinyu’s body, and after repeated inquiries, he held it for a full body check before he was relieved.
Tang Jinyu didn’t know anything about it. He slept faintly all morning, and only woke up until nearly three o’clock in the afternoon. He only felt that his body was full of strength, better than before.
Someone was talking in the living room outside. Tang Jinyu stepped on slippers in his pajamas and went out and saw Tang Hongjun and Chen Suling.
Tang Hongjun was cooking with an apron, and Chen Suling came over immediately after seeing him and took him to the sofa to sit down, feeding him fruit and water, she was very nervous, “Baby, does it hurt?”
Tang Jinyu was at a loss, and smiled when she watched her carefully touch his leg: “Mom, it doesn’t hurt, it just sometimes itches, and it’s okay if you scratch it.”
Chen Suling immediately said: “That’s not okay, we went to a special store to buy some body lotion on the way here, you will apply some later, remember not to be lazy, this is not a trivial matter.”
Tang Jinyu nodded. He looked around and asked, “Mom, where is my brother?”
”Went to buy a house.”
”You little stupid boy, there is no swimming pool here. We said that we were going to pick you up, but your brother refused to agree. He just went out to pick a house.” Chen Suling flicked the tip of his nose and said, “Don’t go out by yourself when you go out, you need an escort, okay?”
Tang Jinyu nodded, he still knew this.
Mermaids are still relatively rare in society nowadays, and occasionally some people will “poach” mermaids. The government has also issued a special protection law for these people. However, under heavy money, there will still be people who take risks. Even if they are not these people, Mermaid will also release things like pheromones, and people who see them will be attracted unconsciously, be confused, and want to take it for themselves.
Illegal imprisonment of a mermaid is a felony, but it is a deadlock that cannot be solved. Many people can do everything after they fall into a crazy obsession. Therefore, most mermaids will find an engagement partner after they reach adulthood and get married after a few years.
Generally, mermaids abandon other people, but they never heard of mermaids being abandoned.
Of course, those who were abandoned are particularly miserable.
You can’t forget your mermaid for a lifetime, and many commit suicide.
After Tang Jinyu got married like this, he and Xia Ye had a very good relationship. After more than ten years of accumulation, they are not only partners, but they are more like relatives. Now that he is divided, their relationship will only be better.
Xia Ye bought a single-family villa with a swimming pool that afternoon.
The security of the community is very well done. In addition to the indoor swimming pools on the first and third floors, there is also a large outdoor swimming pool, which is specially built for people who were partners with mermaids. It was surrounded by tall trees, the concealment is also very good, and it will not let people see the daily activities of the owner of the house.
Xia Ye quickly moved with Tang Jinyu.
