Meng Xin’s Decision
Translator/Editor: Mr Voltaire
“What about your other skills? Let’s see all of them.” Ling Chen was very interested in Tian Tian’s skills now. This profession was already quite powerful, and had quite a bit of potential. Tian Tian, with this profession would become incredibly powerful in future. Before today, he never would have expected that the little brat that he and Shui Ruo had found would have such achievements in the game.”
“Alright, here I go! Little Blue, come out!”
The second skill Tian Tian displayed was Summon Little Blue. All of her summoning skills, apart from “Summon Big White”, could only summon a maximum of two at a time. After giving out the command, a blue light appeared, and two ‘Little Blues’ appeared… although he was somewhat mentally prepared, seeing these two ‘Little Blues’ stupefied Ling Chen.
These two Little Blues were two penguins!!
The two penguins… no, Little Blues, half-waddled and half-ran towards Tian Tian, just like penguins in the real world. Ling Chen recalled that Little Blue’s effects were to take damage that Tian Tian would have sustained. The amount of damage that could be taken for Tian Tian was equivalent to Tian Tian’s Magic Attack Power and the number of Little Blues. Moreover, the cooldown time for summoning Little Blue was only 30 seconds. If one couldn’t get rid of these two meat shields within 30 seconds, then it would be impossible for them to hurt Tian Tian. If, in the late stages of the game, Tian Tian could summon more than ten of these Little Blues…
Ling Chen finally understood why this profession was ranked above the Ling Tian Battle Soul and Feng Chen Curse Zanni.
“Little Pink… go and dance for the big sisters!”
The Little Pinks were two pink rabbits. Although they were also rabbits, they were much cuter than Little White. At least they weren’t fat and didn’t have buckteeth. After being summoned, one ran in front of Shui Ruo and the other ran in front of Su’Er. They began to dance, and a balls of light floated from their bodies towards Shui Ruo and Su’Er… of course, since Shui Ruo and Su’Er were at full health and did not have any debuffs, it didn’t have any effect.
“Come out, Little Green!!”
If Ling Chen wasn’t wrong, the two green things that had just been summoned by Tian Tian should be two large moles! On their backs, they seemed to be carrying massive wooden mallets.
“Little Green, attack!”
As soon as Tian Tian gave the command, the two moles rushed over and smashed their giant wooden mallets on a sheep monster’s head.
After being hit by the two mallets, the sheep monster didn’t immediately die. Their Attack Power seemed to be only one quarter of that of Little White’s, but those two wooden mallets immediately exploded, and released a large cloud of green gas. The green gas covered a five metre radius around the Little Greens, enveloping 7 or 8 sheep monsters, and a green glow appeared on their bodies.
-184, -190, -188, -187…
The two large moles disappeared, but the green gas still remained. Within the gas, damage numbers continuously arose from the sheep monsters’ bodies, once per second. After 5 seconds, the green gas dissipated, and all of the sheep monsters had died… they had all been poisoned to death.
“Are you able to summon Big White?” Ling Chen asked as he gulped down a mouthful of saliva. Each of the summons was more impressive than the previous one. The girls could only stare in shock.
Tian Tian shook her head, stating matter-of-factly, “Of course not. Big White costs 12,000 MP to summon. Right now, my maximum MP is only 1,000 or so, so it’s impossible.”
Indeed, it was simply impossible for the current Tian Tian to expend 12,000 MP to summon Big White. It wasn’t quite clear what this ‘Summon Big White’ would do, but Big White seemed quite powerful. However… ‘only 1,000 or so’?! To have 1,000 MP at LV10 was already astounding!
“No less than expected from the top ranked profession. It simply exceeds anything we could have imagined.” Yun Meng Xin said in awe as she sized up this girl called Tian Tian. She was certain that no one would believe that the top ranked profession would belong to a little girl like her. Everything happens for a reason- such a strong profession wouldn’t just be given to a little girl like her for no reason. Did she have some sort of fortuitous encounter? Or…
“Tian Tian, you’re so awesome! You’re only LV10 but you’re way more powerful than me or Su’Er!” Xiao Qi loudly exclaimed. She blinked, and cheerfully said, “I suddenly realised how amazing our Heart’s Dream is now. Even though we only have 7 members, but we have the publicly acknowledged number 1 player, the top rankings in the Equipment and Pet Rankings, and we’re even the top ranked Guild. Big sister Bing Yao is also on the Heaven Rankings, and big sister Meng Xin and Su’Er also have special professions. Today, Tian Tian, who has the top ranked profession, also joined our guild! Wah! This is almost like a dream!”
“So, even though we only have 7 members, we should have faith that we’ll be able to become the strongest guild, right?” Ling Chen asked smilingly.
“Yup yup!” Xiao Qi nodded vigorously, and clenched her fists, “I’ll work even harder and not be a burden to everyone.”
“Also, let’s keep Tian Tian’s circumstances a secret from the public. The circumstances under which she received her profession were quite special, and she’s still quite young. Moreover, her profession hasn’t developed yet. If people knew about her, then it would bring her a lot of trouble.” Ling Chen reminded everyone.
“Don’t worry, big brother, I’ll help protect Tian Tian’s secret. Plus, Tian Tian’s very smart and obedient. She knows what to do and what not to do.” Shui Ruo quietly said.
“Right, right, big sister Meng Xin, you said that you were going to tell us something. What is it?” Xiao Qi curiously asked as she suddenly remembered that Yun Meng Xin seemed to be writing something when they walked into her room. Everyone turned to look at Yun Meng Xin.
Yun Meng Xin thought for a while, then calmly replied, “I’ve thought about it for a long time, and decided to give up on my battle profession.”
“Ah?!” Apart from Tian Tian, who didn’t know anything, all of the girls looked at Meng Xin in shock, even Mu Bing Yao. Xiao Qi rushed over, and anxiously said, “Big sister Meng Xin, what are you saying? Give up your battle profession? Why would you do this? Back then, in order to level up, you spent so many days training without sleeping. After getting to Azure Dragon City, we worked hard together for so long. We all know that you’ve been working harder than any of us- when we’re resting, you secretly train by yourself. It’s taken you so much effort to get to this stage, so why would you give it all up?!”
“Big sister Meng Xin, big sister Qi Qi’s right… plus, your special profession was given to you by big brother Ling Tian, so how can you just give it up?” Su’Er worriedly said. All of the girls simply couldn’t understand why Meng Xin would make such a decision.
Ling Chen didn’t say anything, but instead just smiled mysteriously.
Yun Meng Xin held Xiao Qi and Su’Er’s hands, and said to these girls who had always been there to support here, “Qi Qi, Su Su, I said that I want to give up my battle profession, not that I would give up on Heart’s Dream or give up on my bet. Before, I didn’t have any support. I only had my determination, and could only rely on my weak strength and hard work. However, now I have you guys, and there’s also Ling Tian, and all of you have given me so much hope. As such, both my heart and mind have become calmer and more logical. I started to become more and more convinced that giving up on my battle profession was the right thing to do, because there’s another path that suits me more.”
“Big sister Meng Xin…” Xiao Qi and Su’Er looked at her in shock. She had never mentioned any of this to them before.
Yun Meng Xin looked at Ling Chen and continued to speak, “Our Heart’s Dream is the top ranked guild in the Guild Rankings. This position gives us the right to quickly expand, but Ling Tian’s refusal to do so has also reminded me of something. If Heart’s Dream does not expand, then other guilds won’t be threatened by our existence, and won’t take any action against us. Moreover, Heart’s Dream’s existence was to satisfy my own personal goals. These days, I finally realised that Ling Tian making Heart’s Dream become the ‘number 1 guild’ wasn’t for us to expand, but to make everyone focus on our position as the ‘number 1 guild’ so that we could secretly develop in other ways. Thus, while others haven’t taken too much notice of us, I want to use my own power to establish a solid foundation for Heart’s Dream and after I’ve realised my dream in 2 years, even if they want to suppress us, they won’t be able to do so.”
After saying this, Xiao Qi and Su’Er finally somewhat understood the reasons for her decision. Su’Er weakly asked, “Big sister, what are you planning on doing then? Are you not going to train with us anymore? And also… it would be such a pity to give up on the special profession that big brother Ling Tian gave you.”
Yun Meng Xin smiled, “Special professions are something that normal players can only dream of, and was something that took Ling Tian a lot of effort to obtain, so giving it up is indeed quite a pity. However, I believe that even though I’m giving this up now, I’ll be able to get much, much more in future. As for what I’m going to do, I haven’t completely thought it out yet, but please believe in me, alright? You’ve all done so much for me, so I definitely won’t let you down.”
Yun Meng Xin was just like a big sister to Xiao Qi and Su’Er, and was very close with them. Otherwise, they wouldn’t go out of their way to come and live with Meng Xin, as well as sacrifice so much for her. They had always had a feeling of trust and reliance towards Meng Xin. Hearing her say this, although they didn’t really know what she was going to do, they didn’t try to stop her, and simply nodded their heads. Xiao Qi smiled, “Why would we not believe in big sister Meng Xin? Since you’ve said this, I’m sure that you have your own considerations. Big sister Meng Xin definitely has marvellous plans that will give us a pleasant surprise.”
