“W-W-W-W-What’s going on here?! They… They’re building a city?! And it’s… it’s a player’s city!!”
The eyes of the man in white widened to comical proportions, and he could barely splutter out his words. Evidently, he was completely blown away. Normally, creating a city wasn’t such a big deal. After all, the Forgotten Continent was incredibly vast, and there were many undeveloped places. It wouldn’t be too surprising to see a city being built in the middle of nowhere, but… he had used his Archer Skill ‘Insight’ to look at this place’s information… and found that this city was built by players!
This city was owned by players!!
“This… This is impossible!! Players need a City Creation Token, a City Creation Token! Only one of those incredible items appear in each Region, and are only drop from Bosses that are Celestial grade or above. Even if it appeared, it should be in the middle to late stages of the game. How can a player possibly obtain one so early on?! The City Creation Token is something the handsome me had been aiming for… if the handsome me could obtain this City Creation Token and sell it, I’d be able to earn hundreds of millions of gold… goddamit, I’d become a super tycoon. When the time came, once I showed off my money and my dashingly good looks, all the girls would leap on me with tears in their eyes… ahhhh which guy was it who obtained the City Creation Token first…”
The man in white could barely speak at the beginning, then started to roar in anger, as if he was mentally deranged. Hearing his words, Yun Meng Xin’s heart fell… because this person evidently already realised that this was a player’s city.
What should she do?
Wait… Winter of That Year, Hundred Miles of Ice… why did these two names look so familiar… Yun Meng Xin thought for a moment, then suddenly opened the Level Rankings.
China Level Rankings (players with more EXP are ranked higher):
Number 1: Feng Xie Yu, Level: LV43, Profession: Blade Spirit, Affiliation: None.
Number 2: Skyfall, Level: LV41, Profession: Summoner, Affiliation: Skyfall Dynasty.
Number 3: Cang Yan, Level: LV40, Profession: Fire Mage, Affiliation: Yan Huang Alliance. Number
4: Mu Bing Yao, Level: LV40, Profession: Assassin, Affiliation: None.
Number 5: Winter of That Year, Level: LV40, Profession: Archer, Affiliation: None.
Number 6: Against Heaven, Level: LV40, Profession: Warrior, Affiliation: Skyfall Dynasty.
Number 7: Xiao Qiu Feng, Level: LV40, Profession: Warrior, Affiliation: Battle Soul Alliance.
Number 8: Hundred Miles of Ice, Level: LV40, Profession: Warrior, Affiliation: None.
Number 9: Demon Earl: Level: LV40, Profession: Thunder Mage, Affiliation: Yan Huang Alliance,
Number 10: Gui Ya, Level: LV40, Profession: Assassin, Affiliation: The Dark Night.
In the Level Rankings, the Sword Emperor Feng Xie Yu held an overwhelming lead in first place, and was also first place in all of Asia. Moreover, she had no affiliation, showing that she had left the Yan Huang Alliance. Yun Meng Xin didn’t normally pay much attention to the Level Rankings but had a rough impression of it. As such, when she looked at the Level Rankings, she realised why these two names looked so familiar… they were respectively ranked fifth and eighth on the rankings!
Anyone who could make it over to this place alive from the Azure Dragon City were definitely not ordinary people. To be ranked in the top 10 of the Level Rankings, these two players were one-out-of-a-hundred-million legendary players! What’s more, this uncouth man in front of her was called ‘China’s Number 1 Archer’, and was the dark horse of the Level Rankings! And the man in black was ranked sixth on the Heaven Rankings, the ‘Emotionless Swordsman’ Hundred Miles of Ice! He was the only unaffiliated player on the Heaven Rankings!
The Emotionless Swordsman had someone beside him, someone who was ranked even higher than him on the Level Rankings.
Knowing that one of the people was Hundred Miles of Ice, Yun Meng Xin let out a small breath of relief. From the rumours she had heard, the ‘Emotionless Swordsman’ Hundred Miles of Ice rejected all offers from guilds and had never joined a guild. He had always been a lone wolf, and was extremely untalkative. It was said that every time he talked, he would at most say two words.
Even if such a person found this place, it was unlikely that he would tell the rest of the world.
However, the person next to him seemed like an extremely loud-mouthed person.
“Cai’Er, go and hide for a while,” Yun Meng Xin made a decision.
“Ah… okay!” Cai’Er obediently agreed then hurriedly flew away. Yun Meng Xin’s lips slightly parted as she slowly breathed out. She calmed herself down before moving towards Winter of That Year and Hundred Miles of Ice.
“Ahh! I confirmed it again, confirmed that this is a player’s city… ohmygoodness, who knows how much money they had spent to have it constructed on such a scale! Not only were they strong enough to snatch the City Creation Token before the handsome me, they have so much money… ahh!! This world really isn’t fair. Boss, what do you think?”
“Could it be the Yan Huang Alliance? No… if it was them, they would definitely let the entire world know. Hm? If it’s not the Yan Huang Alliance, then things are going to be interesting. Even if the Yan Huang Alliance couldn’t obtain the City Creation Token, they definitely wouldn’t let anyone else have it. Should we tell them?”
“So meddlesome,” The man in black coldly replied.
“Cheh, you don’t understand! The handsome me intends to sell this information to the Yan Huang Alliance! Heheh, I’m sure they’d be willing to pay a high price for this sort of shocking information. I bet even tens of thousands of gold wouldn’t be impossible.”
“Idiot.” “You’re the idiot! When has the handsome me ever been wrong in business matters? When this handsome me has enough money, I’ll… I’ll… I…”
Winter of That Year couldn’t finish his sentence, as if something was stuck in his throat. However, his eyes were the widest they had ever been in his entire life… a cool wind blew, blowing away all of the clouds in the sky, bringing with it an enchanting fragrance. His world changed as he saw an incredibly beautiful face, one that was sculpted by the heavens itself.
The beautiful woman was walking closer and closer. She was wearing a jade-green skirt, her eyes clear as water and skin pale as frost. He simply couldn’t drag his eyes away from her body, as if his very soul had left his body and floated to who knows where. As she walked even closer, he could hear her light footsteps, which sounded like a beautiful rhythm.
“Beauty… no, celestial beauty… no, goddess… a goddess of the heavens…” Looking at this devastatingly beautiful face, the man in white felt as if his soul had been stolen, and almost couldn’t even feel his own existence. He had met quite a few beauties- there were those with beautiful faces, those with beautiful bodies, but all of them paled in comparison to this woman. Whenever he saw a beauty, he would look at them with a vulgar look, and would often shamelessly go up and flirt… of course, his lewd and vulgar expression caused every attempt of his to fail miserably.
Looking at the woman in front of him, he could only stare. Forget going up to flirt, he couldn’t even say a single word. He even began to wonder if he was dreaming… how could this sort of beauty exist?
Let alone Winter of That Year, even the stony-faced Emotionless Swordsman stared at Yun Meng Xin for a whole five seconds before rapidly averting his gaze, not daring to continue looking at her. Lust was the root of ten thousand evils and a hundred taboos. Originally, he thought that with the strength of his heart, there was no woman who could move his heart. However, today he had truly experienced what it meant to have devastating beauty.
“Excuse me… are these two friends from the Azure Dragon City?” A heavenly voice broke the awkward silence. Yun Meng Xin smiled as she spoke in front of Winter of That Year and Hundred Miles of Ice. A ray of sunlight seemed to have pierced through the clouds and cover her body, making her seem like a real goddess. Currently, Yun Meng Xin was not wearing her veil, and it was the first time she had revealed her face to players who were strangers ever since entering the game world. She knew the charm of her looks, and knew that they were a massive asset to her. However, she had never been arrogant or used them for her own personal gain. In order to avert the crisis of this new city, she decided to use the most effective weapon she had against men.
The effects were even better than she had expected.
Winter of That Year and Hundred Miles of Ice did not reply for a while after Yun Meng Xin spoke. Only after more than five seconds did Winter of That Year suddenly come back to life, as if he had just woken up from a dream, “Goddess… goddess… ah, no, no, b-b-b-beauty… h-h-hello… I-I-I-I am… h-he…”
Hundred Miles of Ice grimaced. If there was a crack in the ground, he would have dived in immediately.
China’s Number One Archer, the fifth ranked expert on the Level Rankings was acting in such an embarrassing manner. No one could take such a thing. Yun Meng Xin smiled, making Winter of That Year feel like the entire world had become a bit brighter, “These two friends, as you have seen, we’re currently constructing a city here. And I am the owner of this city.”
Hundred Miles of Ice’s eyebrows shot up.
“Ahhhh?!” Winter of That Year’s mind evidently couldn’t accept this. The beautiful face in front of him caused his head to spin and threw his emotions into turmoil. He knew that he would never be able to forget about this person for the rest of his life. Not only was she beautiful to the extreme, her every word and action contained a sense of elegance and nobility, so much so that he couldn’t even fathom having dirty thoughts towards her… to be able to see this sort of goddess was the most fortunate thing in his life. How could he have any impure thoughts towards her? Hearing Yun Meng Xin’s words, he stuttered, “T-T-This… Is… Is… Your city? Your city?”
“That’s right. If you don’t believe me, look around. Can you see any other players?” Yun Meng Xin asked smilingly.
