[19. Since Then, Another Concern Arose]
[Private chat] Half-hearted Smile: : It’s my fault….what guild war can I fight in when my hardware conditions are not up to par…
[Private chat] White Lotus: … You… What do you mean?
[Private chat] Half-hearted Smile: What I meant was…F*ck, it’s all because the voices of Hundred Days Red and the others were too soft and I couldn’t hear a damn thing so we lost!
[Private chat] White Lotus: …
[Private chat] Half-hearted Smile: Wuwuwu…Lotus sister my heart is in pain because my guild has disbanded. My heart hurts so much it feels like it’s going to break! Even comfort from the heavens can’t ease this pain…..
[Private chat] White Lotus: But… all I can see is you trying to sell meng and getting pity points
[Private chat] Half-hearted Smile: …..
The level 50 White Lotus cannot be considered a master. His profession was a little unique, and because of the incident on the forums, he rarely swept dungeons in fear of getting backstabbed by others. Of course, he meant by a knife, not his chrysanthemum getting stabbed. The reason why so many words are used to describe this is because this was the only way to explain White Lotus sisters current mental state – Life really is one goddamn lonely path!!
The only thing that interested him was that Roommate had recently sold a poor soul’s equipment and used the money from that to buy a full levelled rubbish account from the black market. The so called rubbish account is an account that had absolutely nothing apart from rank and skills. What made Roommate even more butthurt was that there was an orange tiered pair of shoes that was bound to the character causing him to fork out an extra 300 yuan.
Bai Lian Hua had asked Roommate why he didn’t just directly hack the account. The answer he had received from the roommate was: “Aiya, you should know, I am someone who does things with a conscience~”
White Lotus: Vomit!
Roommate: Hey?! Are you pregnant? Is it Great God’s or Smiles?
Bai Lian Hua deeply and sincerely exclaimed: You get lost!
What’s more, he had also not seen Great God online recently, making Bai Lian Hua’s lonely life even more empty.
Bai Lian Hua is currently at the peak of Yulong Snow Mountain fighting monsters and his loneliness….oh you’re asking why I keep mentioning his loneliness? That’s because……….
[Private chat] Lonely like Snow: Lotus sister~~ Hurry and come~~ There’s someone here saying that I cheated him money!
[Private chat] White Lotus: Roommate… your sister!!!!
[Private chat] Lonely like Snow: That person is so scary~ TUT. He said that he wants to execute me! So that I would fall back to level zero!
[Private chat] White Lotus: You tell him… can only fall back t level one. There is no level zero in the game.
[Private chat] Lonely like Snow: …in a situation like this, shouldn’t you care more about me?
[Private chat] White Lotus: With what dog eyes do you see that I am not expressing concern for you?
[Private chat] Lonely like Snow: With my two eyes!!
[Private chat] White Lotus: Well then, your eyes are both dog eyes.
[Private chat] Lonely like snow: …come here quickly! I don’t think I can hold the fort anymore!!
[Private chat] White Lotus: ^_^ I heard that White Lotus has already gone offline. Good luck Roommate!
Chuckling as he closed the private chat, Bai Lian Hua directed a final attack at the snow mountain guardian standing before him. A string of red -580 number appeared above the guardian as it released its final dying cry and fell to the ground. The way it had fallen down whilst still on its knees looked very ambiguous…as if he was asking for his chrysanthemum to be attacked. Money bags appeared around the guardian and Bai Lian Hua proceeded to collect them by pressing the ‘z’ key. Sure enough, playing alone really hurts his heart, hurts his lungs, spleen and his stomach…Last time when he was levelling up with Smile and Hundred Days Red he could level up 5 times in a day and now, he had played for 6 hours and is still far from levelling up even once. Of course, this also had something to do with the fact that he needed more experience to level up further now.
On his friends list there are already eight people, but unfortunately, nearly half of them are absent. The remaining three are…
Love Heart King; even if you kill Bai Lian Hua, he would not take the initiative to contact him.
Lonely like Snow; Roommate who had just become a renyao recently expressed that he is very happy
Hundred Days Red; it is said that he has retreated somewhere. But it looks like he isn’t dead.
Bai Lian Hua sighed… Life is really f*cking lonely like snow.
Bai Lian Hua left Yulong Snow Mountain and ran to Tao Hua Xi at the novice village to learn some life skills. Once a player had reached level fifty, for the game to retain more players and for players to waste more of their youth….no I mean, for the sake of the motherland, for the well-being of the citizens, the game technology department had launched a new policy: every player who has reached level fifty can learn two additional life skills.
Most players tend to opt for medicine harvesting and medicine refining. Bai Lian Hua, however, was not interested in this. He likes fishing, his love for this was as persistent as his love for drinking milk. Unfortunately, in real life……..
Bai Lian Hua’s first fishing attempt: Hand caught by the fish hook;
Bai Lian Hua’s second fishing attempt: Heatstroke;
Bai Lian Hua’s third fishing attempt: No fish caught;
Bai Lian Hua’s fourth fishing attempt: His foot fell into a ditch.
With these tragic experiences haunting the poor Lotus sister, he had decided to leave fishing behind and became the textbook example of a man who never takes a step outside the house. His parents couldn’t help but hate the locks installed on his forever closed bedroom door…
Tao Hua Xi is the place in the game where players can go to learn fishing. It is said that it is a long river that spans the width of two streets. On the left hand side is Liu Village and on the right is the Liu City. The old man who teaches fishing always sat on the boat waiting for the stream to bring along new people. The river banks are also densely packed with peach trees. The peach blossoms here are always blooming and, with the petals floating down the stream, the scenery here was superb.
Bai Lian Hua, however, privately guessed that the reason why the peach blossoms are always in full bloom here is probably because the technical department staff were too lazy to design the special effects for the other seasons….
But today’s Tao Hua Xi seems to be a bit strange. The surrounding area is densely packed with people, more than the peach blossom trees on both sides. This…what is going on? Bai Lian Hua stood there dumbly. Since when did fishing become such a sought after skill?
[Nearby] Card Machine Marble: Recruiting for Tao Hua Yuan instance here!! Level 60+! We will be boarding the boat together soon!!
[Nearby] Cat Thief: Can anyone take me on? Let’s go sweep the Tao Hua Yuan instance together!
[Nearby] Fast Fast Fast: FFFFFFFFFFF*CKKKKK, Marble your team is full!!
… In addition to a lot of strangers, from time to time he could see a couple of familiar players.
[Nearby] Graceful Blue Dress: Be prepared guild members, the instance will open soon. When it does, don’t steal, don’t leave the team and follow me. The beasts inside are strong so be careful.
[Nearby] Moon is Round: Fellow players please don’t apply to join our team. This team is only for our guild members. The remaining opening isn’t for new players, we’re keeping it for Love Heart King. Thanks.
Bai Lian Hua caught onto some keywords. For example: Tao Hua Yuan instance. He had not heard of this before. Could this be a new instance? He gently stroked his chin in front of his computer and wasn’t sure if he should join.
Even if he joined, his level was not high enough and Graceful Blue Dress had said that the monsters inside are strong.
If he didn’t join, then he would feel regretful.
For a while, Bai Lian Hua was conflicted. He minimized the game window, opened the browser and searched: Shenzhou Shenlu Tao Hua Yuan instance. The search results came out at once. The first result that came up was the introduction given by the official website.
[Tao Hua Yuan instance]
Instance introduction: After nearly a hundred years, the mysterious peach forest once again appeared before our eyes…
Instance opening time : 24 pm on Sunday. (ie 0:00 am on Monday)
Instance end time: As determined by the player
Recommended level: Level 65
Bai Lian Hua quickly skimmed through these lines and glanced at the bottom right corner of his screen: 23:58. Very good, there are still two minutes. Very good, the recommended level is fifteen levels higher than his current level…
At the same time.
Seeing that there was no one else in the dormitory, the senior revealed a small smile.
Like a thief, he pulled the curtains shut, locked the door tightly, and sneaked back to his computer. His computer screen glowed brightly making his expression look even more strange.
The senior swallowed and with a trembling hand clicked onto the file “Stunning GV/Falcons produced / 1000 GV Compressed Bag”.
——Hey, I didn’t think that such a pure underclassman like Bai Lian Hua would actually have something like this saved onto his desktop. And for it to be this kind of video…even senior, I, am embarrassed. This senior will just quickly check the quality of these films……
He decompressed the file and double clicked onto it when suddenly, the computer screen turned dark.
The senior was stunned for a few seconds. A power outage??
After about a minute there was a flash of light on the screen monitor, and a gloomy face appeared on the screen.
Not long after, Bai Lian Hua heard a loud and shrill scream. He thought: It’s so late already and someone is practicing their high notes?
