Chapter 104: Let’s play then too!
Translated by Addis of Exiled Rebels Scanlations
Before the tournament officially started, the Village Chief had announced the rules, a round of 20 players would be randomly selected from the participants who had already signed up at that time. According to Bai Li and Wen XingYao’s thinking, the event had just opened for a short time and was at its peak, so the number of players who signed up at the same time should not be small, and the probability that they would be assigned to the same group would not be very high. However, it turned out that in their second round, the two unfortunately bumped into each other.
With a smile on his lips, Bai Li said to Wen XingYao, “What a coincidence.”
Wen XingYao couldn’t help but smile too. God knows that the moment he saw Bai Li, his heart was actually welling up with the bad thought of ‘I won’t get the first place again this time.’ Bai Li was one of his own, how could he be wary of the other?
Some players also noticed that the two big men in the game were in the same group as them, and there was a commotion in the crowd. But many people had already had an experience, and knew that now was not a good time to waste time chatting, hurriedly carry the bag and choose a direction to work away.
First, they harvested all the corn they could, and then it was time to put in a lot of effort.
Bai Li also noticed this, and hurriedly used body language to indicate to Wen XingYao that he was going to harvest the corn, what to say later, and then buried his head in hard work. Even Wen XingYao after that reaction, also focused on work.
Wen XingYao had no choice but to concentrate on harvesting the corn first.
The second round of the corn harvesting competition was obviously more harmonious than the first round.
At the other end, Gray Scales also entered a new corn field with his precious big boar. A few minutes ago, he just came out of a round of competition. Their group had only been playing the game for only half a month and were all new players. Harvesting corn was technical work that they were not yet completely skilled at. Everyone was standing at the same starting line.
However, it was this situation that made the competition to harvest corn even more intense.
There was no limit to how many chickens could peck each other. If not for the game’s privacy protection mechanism, Gray Scales even thought his last piece of clothing would be lost to those fierce men and women. But those people also didn’t accomplish much good, and were either missing a shoe, and who knows who bit who…
In the first round, Gray Scales worked his butt off and still only got a guaranteed 5 points.
When he came out of the corn field, he was frantically regretting how he didn’t pick up a few more corn cobs in the last few seconds, when he heard a familiar exchange from his side. Turning his head to take a look, he found that it was the two big guys, Li Bai and Demon Xing, the latter of whom also seemed to be a good friend of his adjutant!
He didn’t mean to eavesdrop either, genuinely because he was close enough between him and the two of them to let him hear what could be considered mega-good news for him. The player’s pets were actually able to be brought into the cornfield.
After that he quietly went to the village chief for advice and was told that only one pet was allowed to be brought in. But that was enough! His pet was an invincible boar that demolished houses, had strong flesh, was full of explosive muscles, and had a rampant beautiful posture. Who dared to stand in its way, and was not afraid of being hit by a meteor in the sky!
With such a big boar, no need to worry about being invincible in the game!
Gray Scales imagined that he would be rewarded with 20 points for the next two rounds, and then ran to the bulletin board to sign up. Soon, he entered the tournament site, and before he could see who his competitors were, the first thing he did was to release the boar he had put away in his pet space.
“Iron Head, remember to protect me well later, someone dares to rob me you give me a hard bump over! If I win today, I will give you extra meals when I get back! Don’t you like potatoes? I’ll give you 20… No, 30 of them!”
‘Iron Head’ was the name Gray Scales gave to the boar. As to why it was called this name, it was easy to understand. Iron Head was a model boar, who at that time, could be tamed because Gray Scales gave him a few mouthfuls of delicious taming grass balls and was a qualified ‘bodyguard’ because of 30 potatoes.
Gray Scales was so proud of himself that he thought he could win today, but he overheard the grunting of a boar different from Iron Head.
And there were two of them!
A sense of foreboding rose in his heart, he looked to the left and right, and it was just as he had guessed, he had two comrades who also had boar pets and had actually teleported in.
The three people’s six eyes met and all saw the meaning of life and death. If only one boar entered the field, they could guarantee that they could carry the whole field, but if there were three boars on the scene, it felt like it would only bring disaster.
Damn it, why!
Why would their luck be ‘good’ like this? At the beginning, hundreds of people in the military department were hard to meet together, but now 20 people came in for a round and three of them had boar pets. This probability was too terrible.
The three gathered together with the boar and had a short little meeting.
“Things have come to a head, there is no way out. The three of us will fight for the top three! I’m first, second and third, you guys share!”
“No way, no way, let me be first! I only got 5 points before, too little!”
“Cut, make it look like who is not 5 points, in that case, we will compete fairly and see who gets the most corn then!”
“Hmph, let’s do that!”
Obviously, the meeting did not end happily, and the three people went their own way. Instead, the three boars got together and hummed around. You squeezed me, I squeezed you, a very good relationship.
The rest of the players were quietly concerned and breathed a sigh of relief, fortunately these few did not band together, or they feared for their survival.
Wild boars with their combat value were really enviable!
Anyway, those on Gray Scales’ side scrambled with a bang, while Bai Li and Wen XingYao’s side, the corn stalks that were growing well on the ground were also gleaned by the players, and as far as the eye could see, there were no more corn stalks left. And only two-thirds of the game time had passed. Everyone knew that the next 10 minutes would be more important than the previous 20 minutes.
Bai Li and Wen XingYao also gathered after the past 20 minutes, the two consciously pulled apart a meter or so, neither touching each other, nor hearing what the other was saying. Coincidentally, they both showed each other their harvest, heavy huge bags, at first glance to distinguish which was bigger.
Wen XingYao looked at the other players nearby who had the heart of a thief, smiled and asked, “How about it, want to cooperate?”
“Hm? How?” Bai Li was a bit curious. Normal cooperation naturally did not avoid physical contact, but the current situation was that it was best for them not to touch each other.
“It’s very simple. We each separate to tackle the others first, and then rendezvous when we are still a few minutes short of the last, and the corn we get will be shared equally. We might even win first place together.” Wen XingYao said with a serious face. He seemed to have thought about this matter for a long time.
Bai Li was just about to agree when he suddenly remembered that Demon Xing did not seem to know how well he was doing. And Demon Xing’s hands he had just seen, he was easily able to defeat the player who came up to sneak attack.
The other side had a wide open attack, and could hit vital points every time. Bai Li’s feeling was that such fighting ability was a talent. In addition to strengthening practice, ordinary people could not touch Demon Xing.
At that time Bai Li was curious, what was Demon Xing’s identity in reality? He also had a face like that, which made Bai Li feel like he would be famous in the outside world.
The person who has 1 to 19 hands offered to share the corn cobs in the end, but Bai Li said he was not moved. For such a kindness, he had no intention of accepting.
After briefly estimating Demon Xing’s combat power, Bai Li vaguely had a thought, and this thought reached its peak when Demon Xing proposed to share the fruits of victory.
Perhaps he was defiant, he shook his head towards the other side and modified the latter half of the arrangement, “How about this, let’s not take the first place together, let’s fight then, whoever is good gets more corn?”
The plain-looking teenager showed his sharp ‘fangs’ at this moment, and underneath his sly face was a calm and cool look, and the middle-aged-sounding suggestion meant he didn’t want to be a person who just stood under a tree and took advantage of it, while the arrogant tone also revealed that he himself had strong confidence.
In the end, who was the more powerful one, they had to fight to know.
Wen XingYao only felt as if something had zapped the location of his heart, crispy and tingling, some amusement, some helplessness, and some strange elation.
After that, he heard his own voice answering the other’s proposal, “Okay.”
