Chapter 693: 693
693: Finally, a happy day
Today, Inside the floating citadel of Aincrad, players would gather in groups of two or three as they vigorously talked about a certain topic . Solo players also appeared amidst the crowd, although, they are acting as listeners than conversation partners .
The player population in the labyrinth area immediately declined . Hotels, inns, and lodgings filled up with players as they all cheered and poured their hearts out . They were all talking about one thing, the 74th floor was cleared!
After what appeared to be a few months, Wu Yan finally solo-killed another floor boss . With another floor conquered, the day they can break free from this death game encroaches ever closer .
Inspired by this, some players made energetic attempts at getting on the 75th floor . They wanted to be the first ones to clear the quests there, some players are also there to find rare material . Meanwhile, the more ambitious players are starting to test the monsters’ power levels on the newest floor .
Of course, that’s not their final aim . They wanted to gather information because they are frontline players who wanted to take down the labyrinth .
Nobody noticed a weird thing . The absence of the Black Cats and Fuurinkazan despite the attendance of nearly all major guilds on this floor .
That’s because the absentees are all busy partying in a hotel on the 50th floor .
Wu Yan, Asuna, Kirito, Liz, Sachi, Shion, Silica, Klein, Souta, the Black Cats, and the Fuurinkazan are all here . They lifted their jugs as they cheered out loud . Agil is also here, the mood couldn’t be livelier .
Wu Yan glanced over everyone and he pursed his lip .
“It’s just a floor clear, do we really need to throw a huge party like this?”
“Yeah, you weren’t here the last time we partied like this…”
Kirito chugged his drink . He chuckled as he continued .
“Taking down almost a third of the floors in Aincrad, you’re like a ghost, nobody caught any glimpse of you . When news of the floor being cleared spread, you are already long gone . Just treat this as all the accrued celebrations being cleared in one go . ”
Wu Yan rolled his eyes at him, he spoke with a slightly annoyed tone .
“Of course, you’re one to talk, you’re not the one who is footing the bill for this round of celebration!”
“Oh, come on…”
Asuna slapped Wu Yan’s shoulder .
“You have so much Cor on you, this is like taking out a penny and donating it . I am sure even after booking this whole hotel, it isn’t enough to reduce one basis point of your net worth, right?”
He looked at the people smiling and giggling around him . He decided to just go with the flow .
“Why do I feel like I am the ATM machine, here?”
“Hey, don’t sweat the small stuff!”
Klein wrapped an arm around him and he gestured by lifting his jug .
“You’re the MC today, don’t grumble all day now!”
“That’s right Onii-san…”
Sachi tilted her head . Her faint smile couldn’t fully express the joy in her heart .
“You never joined our party, it feels good with you around the place…”
Silica concurred . She giggled along with Sachi .
“Everybody’s happy and smiling, this is a rare scene and I like this feeling!”
“Okay okay, I can never win against you girls…”
Wu Yan bitterly laughed .
The others all laughed out loud . Shion teased him .
“I wonder what would happen if I went outside and yelled out loud that ‘Wu Yan is right here’, what do you guys think, will that blow the roof off this hotel?”
“Mother-, you better not…”
Wu Yan raised an arm in protest .
Liz crossed her arms and she told Shion off .
“If you did that then this party will be halted…”
“I think the pretty Asuna’s presence would lead more traffic flow to this place…”
Kirito rubbed his chin .
“I think it would be more interesting if we told everyone outside that she’s here…”
Wu Yan chortled as a chill ran up his spine .
“Duel invites will flood my system notification if you did that…”
Shion glomped Asuna .
“Asuna will also get buried by the incoming players!”
“Please spare me from that…”
Asuna thought about the possibility and she declined . She experienced events like that . For instance, not too long ago, the other guys in Fuurinkazan were fanboying all around her .
Wu Yan jabbed Kirito in the waist, he pointed towards a certain direction .
“Are you sure you’re going to be okay, praising another girl in front of your own girlfriend?”
Kirito’s expression froze up as he mechanically turned around . Lisbeth was looking at him with a sinister look . Kirito’s heart started racing but not in a good way .
Kirito’s eyebrows started jolting . Liz walked towards another table with a cold snort . Kirito followed after her with hung head .
Wu Yan, Souta, Klein, and the others were looking at Kirito with sad eyes, they silently pressed F for their comrade who entered the doghouse . They found a new sense of respect for Lisbeth who tamed the solo player known as the Black Swordsman . She’s got maxed skill in Henpecking . As expected of Lisbeth .
Klein chortled in glee . He watched with amusement as Kirito and Liz went at each other .
“Looks like that guy needs to up his game…”
“Look who’s talking…”
Souta started savagely ripping him out .
“That guy is still underage and he’s already enjoying love . Look at you, you’re over twenty-years-old and you’re still single, I mean, well?”
Klein’s shoulder slumped down . A dark aura wrapped him and he snapped back at Souta .
“You’re one of the single over-twenties too, right? You’re in the same boat as me!”
“Ara, you’re wrong about that…”
Shion jumped out of nowhere .
“The guild master has a girlfriend!”
The others looked at Souta who is laughing like a fool by himself . Klein was outraged .
“Impossible! This is impossible!”
“Yeah, I can testify as a witness . ”
Silica raised her arm like an eager student trying to answer a question .
“She’s in our guild . Sachi has seen her and I have seen her as well!”
Everyone turned towards Sachi . They wanted her to spill the beans but she hurriedly explained .
“I didn’t do it on purpose, I passed by and I saw the guildmaster entering the headquarters of the guild while holdings hands with a girl…”
Everyone started taking jabs at the person in question .
“To think their relationships are already so developed, they are even holdings hands…”
“We are still at hand-holding, I sweat!”
Souta lowered his reddened face .
“Don’t think overboard…”
Everyone laughed out loud . Meanwhile, Klein looked like he’s experiencing what is called the everything-is-a-lie phase .
He slumped down on the floor in an Orz pose as gray lines surrounded his body .
The others all laughed even harder .
