[5. Wu Ling Young Contenders]
What Chu Zhongtian eventually chose as his profession, Bai Lian Hua did not know. He was too busy taking Roommate around Malang Gobi grinding experience points and didn't have the time to spare Chu Zhongtian a thought.
Roommate was very obviously new to the game. While busy hacking away at monsters until they only had a small drop of blood left, Bai Lian Hua looked back at Roommate only to find him standing there stupidly. He wouldn't be surprised if he didn't even notice when his monsters kills are getting stolen.
Although he is currently in a team with Roommate, the experience points do not divide evenly. The player who delivers the final blow receives 70% while the others share the remaining 30% of experience…and so taking on a new player and guiding them to level up is actually a pretty technical task. If you're not careful, you could accidentally make the kill and give yourself the already small amount of experience points and give the lower levelled player even fewer points! This way you will not be able to achieve the goal of levelling up. You should know that in "Shenzhou ShenLu", the experience points you get by killing monsters of slightly higher levels is much more than those from similar or lower levels….its no wonder there is an increase in players offering 'guiding services' to lower levelled accounts around across the internet.
(TLNote: 越级打怪的经验可比"超"级打怪的经验多太多了- not too sure…)
And now Roommate is standing there stupidly not knowing that he should be killing the monsters he had painstakingly dealt damage to. If Bai Lian Hua wasn't in a good mood, he would have already kicked him out of the team! What f*cking teammates?! If it was a player with bad temper, they would rather refund the money than taking him around to grind!
After all, who can bear seeing the monsters whose blood he had painstakingly drained be taken away so easily by others?
However, this situation is clearly happening right now.
There are already a few level 10 novice players standing around White Lotus and Roommate, just waiting to take advantage of it! It's so irritating!
Although the cause of his irritation is not Roommate, just by seeing his horrible skills and seeing the monsters being stolen before Roommate could make any successful kills made him a good target for Bai Lian Hua to vent his anger.
[Team] White Lotus: Roommate are you a zombie?
[Team] White Lotus: Did you jack off too much yesterday? If your eyes are tired, go sleep. F*ck, I told you not to jack off too much….
[Team] White Lotus: Hey Hey Hey! You should at least say something!
[Team] Roommate: Oh.
[Team] White Lotus: …! ! ! !
White lotus is furious.
Even a Holy Mother would be pissed seeing all their hard work being put to waste and even having such an uncooperative teammate. Although his name may seem Holy Mother-like, he definitely isn't one.
White Lotus just wanted to swear, but he thought about his reputation in the game and restrained himself. After all, there are many people around him and if someone with too much time on their hands took a screenshot and shared it…it really is another scandal!
[World] White Lotus: What f*cking levelling up is this! This slave is leaving now. You can go continue acting like a log! (#‵′)凸
[Team] Roommate: … Lotus girl! Don't leave me!
[World] White Lotus: You and I are over! Wuwu This slave will never believe in love again!
[Team] Roommate: …
[Team] Roommate: What did you send just then? The world channel moves too fast I didn't see it clearly.
Bai Lian Hua's hand stiffened and his brain turned into mush.
What? … Did he just send it to the world channel? !
Just thinking of this possibility, Bai Lian Hua's anger immediately cooled down and he could be a chill coming from the soles of his feet. He couldn't help but recall the comments left on the forum.
[Private chat] Chu Zhongtian: White Lotus, how did you end up sending that to the World channel?
[Private chat] White Lotus: … don’t know.
[Private chat] Chu Zhongtian: You should open the world channel and see…
Since he was flamed and hunted down yesterday, Bai Lian Hua had turned off the world channel and after listening to Chu Zhongtian's words, he was even more against the idea of turning it back on. But his useless curiously ended up kicking in. After hesitating again and again, he shakily opened the world channel. Because his hands were shaking so badly, he clicked several wrong buttons before eventually succeeding to open it.
艹天王丶丨: Again that f*cking NC White Lotus!
Example is Sour and Sore: Does he really want attention? He's already so infamous and is now one step away from societal rejection
Give You Up: Can a crazy person think properly? And they still dare come on the world channel hehe.
Graceful Blue Dress: LS+111111111… I don't want to talk about this scum, wasting Laozi's horn
… Looks like he was really beaten black and purple. Bai Lian Hua suppressed his urge to delete his account. His whole body from inside to outside wilted lifelessly.
[Private chat] Chu Zhongtian: Lotus sister, I also chose the archer, you should be my Master!
[Private chat] White Lotus: You are not afraid that I will drag you down?
[Private chat] Chu Zhongtian: Brother, did you lose some brain cells? Drag me down? What's that? Never heard of it.
Anyway, Bai Lian Hua still logged off the game. Once he had logged off, he felt empty, as if he had lost a part of himself. Usually, he would be playing “Shenzhou Shenlu” at this time. Now, he didn't dare log into the game. He could only comfort himself by logging onto penguin to chat.
Unexpectedly, his penguin kept of ringing.
The penguin message system almost became the last straw pushing Bai Lian Hua to delete the game.
[Penguin System News: You have been kicked out by [Admin: [Guild Leader] Night Humour]] [Additional Message: Don't play games like this and ruin yours and our guilds reputation, Love Heart wanted to give you time to leave the guild yourself so I won't kick you out. After all, everyone knows each other so I will let you choose the method of leaving. Moon also said you should remove her from your "Close friends" list. Because of this she was cut down today for no reason.]
Bai Lian Hua's nose felt sour but he restrained himself so that he wouldn't lose any more face. As a man, he shouldn't be crying like a sissy. Not just the others, he himself also thinks that he is an embarrassment. He really felt upset.
He had played “Shenzhou Shenlu” for a year and had joined this guild 8 months ago. At that time, the guild was still small and didn't have the reputation it now held. There were only 5 or 6 players making up the guild and now it had grown into a guild with hundreds of members and was within the 10 ten ranks in the region.
He still remembered that time when the guild leader "Night Humour" excitedly exclaimed: Finally someone who wasn't dragged into the guild!
He still remembered when the vice guild leader “The Moon Is Round” said: Treat this guild like your family! You can rest assured that this family will never abandon you!
He still remembered when the elder “Love Heart King” said: Lotus MM, later I will protect you. If anyone bullies you, tell me and this guild will support you.
At that time, he had also replied one statement: “The slave is a man!”
Now everything is gone.
Guild leader said: Don't play games like this.
Moon said: Delete my name from your “Close friends” list in the game.
Love Heart said: When you find the time, you should leave the guild yourself.
Compared with the incident with Great God in the forums, this felt real. – After all, they had laughed together and hurt together. They had cursed at shameless players together, swept dungeons together and had even discussed the future of the guild together…
He opened the penguin chat with Roommate and entered a line of words.
[White Lotus: Roommate, I can't find the reason to play “Shenzhou Shenlu” anymore. ]
[Roommate: Have you seen the forum? ]
[White Lotus: Not yet. What happened? ]
[Roommate: Someone lit another bomb this morning. They said that you are actually the poster of the original pinned post because your IP address is in Shanghai, Jaiyu district.]
[White Lotus: It's not me! ]
[Roommate: I know. Your IP number is different. ]
[Roommate: Now everyone is saying that you did it just to gain recognition….]
Bai Lian Hua sniffled back his tears and turned off his computer. He sat silently on his bed and was overwhelmed with loneliness and despair.
Let's not think about it…..lets sleep.
Bai Lian Hua laid down in bed but ended up tossing and turning all night.
Because of a small misunderstanding like this, he had a long and sleepless night.
As it turns out, it seems that I really am not as strong as I had imagined myself to be.
KKNotes: I am going to try and release a chapter a day. Let’s see how long I can do this for haha
*buy me a coffee and I will release bonus chapters! ^^
