Chapter 120 — Snow White in a Dark Fairy Tale (48)
A slightly surprised look appeared on the King’s face, but he soon laughed, “Relax, I won’t kill him, he still has some usable value after all.”
He went on and said, “Are you curious why the girls have a similar look with Snow White?” A tender look of nostalgia appeared on his face, “That’s because… their appearance looked just like my most beloved Queen. And of course, you’re included.”
A terrible thought passed through her mind, Shen Mubai’s eyebrows jumped, “…were you the one who killed Snow White’s mother?”
The King laughed slowly, “That’s right.”
Shen Mubai couldn’t imagine how Snow White would react if she knew the truth. She had put in order the big puzzles in her heart: the King has an almost morbid and paranoid love for the former Queen that he would prefer to see her as a cold dead body. But although Elena tried her best to preserve them, just like what she did that day, those corpses can’t be kept for a long time, so he continued to find alternatives. The original host was probably only a mere decoration to deceive the public, and perhaps because of some other reason, the King slowly wasn’t able to put his hand on her, and now, there’s another thing that she couldn’t figure out.
“What happened to that young girl named Bellice?”
The King’s eyes were full of helplessness. “Fujiana, you really said too much, but I’m gonna be very patient with you today.” He lightly laughed, “Naturally it was because she’s going to marry the Prince instead of Snow White…”
Shen Mubai felt something strange in her heart while she continued and said, “I don’t understand why you have to spend so much time doing this?”
The King gazed at her tenderly, “My dear Fujiana, of course it was because Snow White is a boy ah. What’s wrong? Do you have any other question?”
Shen Mubai blanked, and after a while passed, she finally remembered one of her original tasks.
She said to the system while feeling that it was too unbelievable, “How did I forget about all this?”
The System felt like it was hit harder than her, its face was full of doubt, “It can’t be, there’s no way.”
It seemed like the System’s mind was out of order, Shen Mubai also lost herself in messy thoughts, how could the gentle and cute Snow White be a boy ah?
Seeing the look on her, the King’s gentle look on his face didn’t change at all, “Fujiana, now that you know everything, you can take a good night’s sleep.” He said as he stood up, a sharp and glistening knife was grasped inside his hand out of nowhere while he slowly walked to her.
Shen Mubai responded quickly and took a few steps back. Outside the palace was full of the King’s people, so there’s only one way left now.
So she called the system silently, “System, wake up ah, I’m gonna receive a boxed meal already.” (of an actor when their job is done/ when their character dies in the play)
System said, “Arbitrary portal, five points.” some sighs were heard in its words, apparently, it was hit too hard before.
When Shen Mubai heard the name, she had a hunch that it’s gonna be unpredictable, but the King’s knife was glistening closer by the second so she quickly said, “Deal!”
After she said this, a black vortex appeared before her and her whole person disappeared.
She felt a burst of dizziness and fell down hard on top of a soft and pliable thing. Shen Mubai’s head was hit until she saw stars when her ears heard a maid outside was giving her salute, “Your Majesty the Prince.”
Immediately following was the sound of a door being opened. Arlenweiss’ voice could be heard clearly full of astonishment, “Queen?”
I understand if Bai Bai forgot that Snow White was a he, but how could system too ah??( ˘･з･)
