Chapter 215: Online dating to reality
Translated by Addis of Exiled Rebels Scanlations
The news came as fast as a tornado.
The day before, Wen XingYao’s slightly clearer side photo was taken by a fellow netizen and uploaded on the Starnet, which captured many face fans overnight. However, the next day, the photos of him and Bai Li going out shopping appeared in even hotter poses. The man of the hour was with a mysterious teenager whose face was bright, and the Interstellar boys and girls’ hearts were broken.
However in the current world, perhaps the long war with the Zerg left an impact on it. Everyone was living recklessly and with style. Love or hate, they would generally say it directly, not keep it hidden. They were also very quick to pull out once they found that they had no chance, then would quickly switch emotions, and see a different perspective on the world. For example, right now. It was clear that one minute ago, Wen XingYao’s face value powder and combat power powder were used, and in the next minute, it was Wen XingYao and Bai Li’s CP. They didn’t wait for the official announcement, but every minute was filled out with love and hate stories, sweet and happy love stories, and mixed love stories.
When Bai Li and Wen XingYao finished shopping and returned home, the news on the Starnet came from the mouth of Zhu MoLing, whose face was already as black as his fur. There was no room for maneuvering, and what should be known was known.
As for Bai Li’s identity, fellow netizens still referred to him as “Mystery Boy.”
Three years ago, Bai Li was only fifteen years old, plus he either stayed on the Heavenly Fox clan’s planet, or wandered the battlefield. He also liked to take on the appearance of different people every day, so no one really associated him with the young master that the Heavenly Fox clan had been looking for for three whole years.
He was still relatively safe.
The vast majority of people gave their blessing for the two to be together.
The two people understood the situation clearly, and decisively got into the gaming pod, as they chose not to answer the world, and remained addicted to the game. What the Starnet said anyway were the facts, so they simply acquiesced.
The two people were assumed by another to not have made such a choice. Jealous, with his little brother about to become someone else’s, the older brother went back to his room, got into the game, and continued to raise his character level.
In contrast to reality, those two played more games, so he had to keep an eye on them more in the game.
Bai Li and Wen XingYao came back and entered the game without much delay, and not without reason. Yesterday, before they went offline, Jiang Huaibi came to inform them that the fishing boat had been officially completed and the time to go to sea had been set. It was today at 14:00 in the afternoon. The two of them went out shopping for a while and arrived home after 12:00. After they ate and chatted about the situation on the Starnet, the appointed time was almost there.
After they entered the game, Bai Li and Wen XingYao met at the entrance of their houses and were about to leave for the beach when they saw a golden thing “rumbling” towards them from afar. When they looked at it, they found that it was Long-winded, Scrupulous Son’s golden prawn.
Peeps had evolved. Not only had its color become golden, it got larger, and even the speed of the run up was more than twice the original. As the owner of the shrimp, Long-winded, Scrupulous Son had recently fallen in love with the feeling of riding the shrimp all over the village, and occasionally took a few requests to transport people to the deep forest for business. Mushroom Village was a beautiful place afterall.
“LiLi. Big Brother Demon Xing. You guys are just coming online?” Long-winded, Scrupulous Son pulled on Peeps’s reins and braked sharply not far from the two, as he stopped a meter away from them and explained his intentions, “Heart’s Jade sent me over. She said it might take too much time for you to get to the beach after you come online. I’ll give you a ride. Don’t worry, my golden prawn evolved to be fast. It’s only ten minutes to get you to your destination, hehehe!”
Bai Li looked at the person sitting on top of the prawn, smiled and asked teasingly, “10 gold coins for a trip?”
This was the offer he happened to hear yesterday, but this time he was deliberately teasing him.
Long-winded, Scrupulous Son’s face immediately reddened, as he waved his hands, panicked and explained, “No, no! You don’t have to pay. For you two big guys, I’m doing volunteer work! Besides, if it weren’t for LiLi, I wouldn’t have been able to catch this prawn and evolve it into a golden prawn! LiLi and Big Brother Demon Xing are lifelong free customers of my business!”
The last six words were said loud and clear, and really succeeded in shocking Bai Li and Wen XingYao. However, the two weren’t short of money. They said that while this time they would take it for free, that they should still give money next time.
Long-winded, Scrupulous Son agreed with this statement after a little entanglement. As for the ten gold coins, the people in the village could afford them. It was meaningless to push them around. He also took money to do business because he thought it was fun. Even given the time to refuse, they were expected to arrive at the destination soon.
Bai Li and Wen XingYao sat on the back of the Peeps in turn. After waiting to confirm that the two were firmly seated, Long-winded, Scrupulous Son skillfully controlled the Peeps to turn around, and then they were off in the right direction on a wild ride.
Bai Li sat on the back of the prawn, and didn’t notice the bumps in the road. He closed his eyes to feel the breeze on both sides of his face, then opened his eyes to watch the sun as it shone on the golden shell of the prawn. It reflected the light and also reflected in it were the surrounding leaves and grass of the landscape, with a different sense of dream and haze. It was quite beautiful.
While Bai Li was looking around, Wen XingYao was the image of the protector as he sat behind him. He held his hands at his waist to prevent him from falling off the golden prawn. Fortunately, Long-winded, Scrupulous Son drove seriously all the way, and intentionally didn’t turn to look back, afraid he would be fed a large mouthful of dog food.
However, he was also conscious of doing so. As a fan of Bai Li, he knew that Bai Li and Big Brother Demon Xing were a pair, and the relationship was particularly good. As a qualified fan, of course, he would leave enough space for his idols to fall in love. Therefore, he hypnotized himself. He was actually Peeps, and had no neck to twist…
Peeps rumbled on, and sure enough, in less than ten minutes, the three arrived at their destination.
They were at the border of the forest, where the dark brown mud and light golden sandy beach intertwined. Only in the game could they see such a magical landform. The beach spread away and a dozen meters from them was the turquoise blue sea. The waves gently lapped at the beach, while the fishy salty sea breeze blew across the tip of every player’s nose.
Bai Li got off Peeps, raised his eyebrows in surprise and asked in disbelief, “Hey, why are there so many people here?”
If he remembered correctly, Jiang Huaibi’s small fishing boat could only fit five or six people, right? This scene…there were five or six hundred people or more standing on the beach.
Before, when they were riding Peeps and passing through the forest, he saw a lot of people in a hurry, and originally thought that those people were engaged in gathering in the forest, or that they intended to head to the mine. Now it seemed that they were actually going to the same destination,?
This question was one Long-winded, Scrupulous Son could answer.
He also jumped down from Peeps then put the five small golden Peeps that had been united into his pet space before he said, “Of course there are a lot of people here! This is the first time someone has teamed up to go to sea, and the tool being used is the only fishing boat in the game. Although Heart’s Jade will also open a whole live broadcast, to see it with their own eyes and or to see it from the live room is a big difference. No one wanted to miss the opportunity to witness the history of the game, so anyone who heard the news came over.”
Even he, too, was caught up in the process of watching the action, and helping to run people there, but he was also very willing to transport Bai Li.
Bai Li smiled, nodded, and no longer wondered why there were so many people. However, there was still one problem. With so many people, how should they squeeze through the crowd and get to the front where the boarding point was?
This problem was solved just as quickly.
Long-winded, Scrupulous Son formed a cylinder around his mouth with his hands, took a deep breath, and then shouted as loudly as he could, “Everyone, make way, make way! LiLi and Big Brother Demon Xing are here. Let them pass, so the sea team will all be here!”
Since everyone was there, they could then sail out to sea.
Bai Li was taken aback and couldn’t help but look at Long-winded, Scrupulous Son in amazement. The young man looked like a gentleman, with just a little bit of special interest, so he hadn’t expected his voice to be quite so loud. It was obviously a bustling, loud chatting occasion, but his voice still had such a strong penetrating power.
All the players who heard him shout, stopped chatting and joking, and the heads on their necks flushed as they turned towards the source of the voice. Then the crowd closest to Bai Li, moved like Moses parting the sea, and squeezed out a path for the two people to walk side by side.
On both sides of the path, players were looking at Bai Li and Wen XingYao with gleaming eyes, as if to say, “Finally, you’re here, big brothers!”
It looked like they couldn’t wait.
Bai Li was sweating for a while. He felt that the eyes of these players were too hot.
Jiang Huaibi, who was at the innermost part of the crowd, also heard Long-winded, Scrupulous Son’s shout and ran all the way to the end of the path. She waved her hands joyfully to greet the two. Along with her, there was also the live camera that was in its open state.
The arrival of the last two members of the sea-going squad drew a discussion from the live audience.
[I thought LiLi and Big Brother Demon Xing would be late, but fortunately they arrived at 14:00, a few minutes short of the appointed time. But compared to younger sister Huaibi who came to the beach an hour earlier and waited, they have a less positive look…]
[LiLi can give me the opportunity to go to the sea. I want to go to the outside world to see. QAQ!]
[Impossible. Absolutely impossible. Bring LiLi and Big Brother Demon Xing, then bring you this. Even if the game quota is not useful, we will be watching the live!]
[Hey, hey, hey. They have finally arrived, so is it time to go to sea? I can’t wait to experience going out to sea. I hope to catch big fish, run into pirates and find an island!]
[Welp! You guys didn’t notice, but this time LiLi and Big Brother Demon Xing always seem to be online and offline at the same time. Oh, once Big Brother Demon Xing is not in the game, LiLi will also directly answer that he is busy with something. Guys, I have a great suspicion that LiLi and Big Brother Demon Xing have developed from an online relationship to one in reality, right? Maybe they live together?]
[Hahahahaha! Goddamn cyber love! But you do sound a bit reasonable. Tsk! No wonder I just smelled the sour smell of love. That said, what the hell is going on lately? First LiLi and Big Brother Demon Xing got together, and then Admiral Wen, who hasn’t been seen in a while, just appeared within the public eye carrying a big melon, as he shopped at the mall with a mysterious teenager too!!!?]
[What’s the problem? The male gods are all famous, only we are still emitting the fragrance of single dogs. Single…wonderfully single. Single, lonely people are whimpering!]
Tang Ying, who was fishing in the live stream during work, “…”
There was a sentence that he did not know when to say. In fact, in the two pairs, the protagonists were the same people!
