Second part! Wei Wei fights back.

[2] 不穿裤裤好凉爽: means not wearing pants and feeling cool and refreshing

Chapter Fifteen Part 2

Zhan Tian Xia hadn’t replied to anything so Wei Wei continued: “Is Sect Leader also hanging and not really here?”

After a while there was still no response. Wei Wei wasn’t in a hurry and so slowly typed out: “Even though just before Sect Leader Zhan mistakenly accused me, but the determination the Sect Leader Zhan has for making sure that justice exists for all members of the sect I admire greatly. But why isn’t he coming out now, is this determination biased and only for a select few?”

Zhan Tian Xia finally was forced out.

Sect [Zhan Tian Xia]: That was my mistake, it’s okay that it was a misunderstanding. The unity of the sect is the most important, but there’s another matter, Lu Wei, that you have to pay attention to.”

He wanted to gloss over it that easily! And had a backup plan?

Wei Wei was still irritated over getting accused but since anger doesn’t solve anything, she had been keeping it in control. But seeing his attitude now, she couldn’t help but actually get angry. Her angry usually manifested as absolute calmness and she steadily typed; “What matter, please tell me.”

Zhan Tian Xia: “When Zhen Shui and Yao Yao were getting married, the medicines you were selling on the bridge were probably from the sect stores. Technically, you shouldn’t have sold them on your own. But once is okay, just pay attention next time, ho ho.”

Wei Wei was terribly disgusted by his last “ho ho.” She understood it was because he was very embarrassed by the last matter. He wanted something else to embarrass her with so they were even. If it had been somebody else with a softer personality, they might have let it go. But Wei Wei wasn’t that type of person and forcefully retaliated: “This was so long ago, it’s amazing how well Substitute Sect Leader still remembers. The medicines I sold were, yes, made using the sect sores but to create these medicines the herbs had to be the highest-level. How many people in this sect have maxed out level and are able to gather this kind of herbs.?”

The sect channel was entirely silent.

The leader and the elder of the sect were fighting. Normal members couldn’t interrupt. Some more perceptive people found that Lu Wei had changed her honorific of Sect Leader Zhan to Substitute Leader and found it even more agonizing.

Nobody answered her so Wei Wei continued on herself: “If I remember correctly, there are only two, including me. The other is Huan Huan Xi Xi, but she’s in in the last year of high school and has the high-school exams coming up, so she hadn’t been online for a few months now.”

Wei Wei: “There, the so-called sect stores, is really just herbs that I gathered. I use the herbs I gather to make medicine to sell, does Substitute Leader have any objections?”

Zhan Tian Xia furiously replied: “Lu Wei, don’t say it that way. Even though high-level medicine requires high-level herbs, but it still requires some low-level ones that others have gathered. Those low-level herbs are the property of the sect.”

Wei Wei didn’t go in a panic and replied: “Okay, since Substitute Leader wants to do it this way, then let’s calculate clearly. What’s the market price for high-level herbs? What’s the price for low-level herbs? How many times did I make high level medicine freely for the sect?”

The difference between the price of high-level and low-level herbs was akin to the ground and the sky. Additionally, high-level medicines were products that you didn’t get to buy just because you had the money. Zhan Tian Xia would be dumb to reply. He had only wanted to find some matter so that he would look somewhat. He hadn’t thought Lu Wei Wei Wei would react so strongly.

Zhan Tian Xia: “Making contributions to the sect should be the responsibility of every member.”

Wei Wei thrust back: “But please don’t take my generosity for granted! Just because I was helping the sect by making free medicine, I don’t have the freedom to sell my own medicine?!”

Wei Wei: “Also, why is it that my contributions should receive such criticism and blame?!”

In the sect, a small medicine-maker hesitantly opened up: “Even though Wei Wei jie used the low-level herbs we gathered, but we also used the high-level herbs she gathered to aid us to level up.”

Lei Shen Ni Ni saw that the situation was getting worse and worse. She was frightened that after this, Wei Wei would have even a harder time in the sect. She tried to reconcile the two sides: “Okay okay, we are all one sect. Let’s all be peaceful and rich.”

She started and the rest of the members started to come in to try to persuade.

Wei Wei sent a smiling expression and everybody heaved a sigh of relief, thinking that they were successful. Nobody expected the following line to pop up which shocked them speechless.

Sect: [Lu Wei Wei Wei]: Xiao Yu Qing Qing, what happened you know very well. So you can apologize to me now, or never let me see you killing a boss. Otherwise I’ll do exactly what you accused me of today.”

Let it go? If Zhan Tian Xia hadn’t taken up the issue of the medicine, that might have been possible. She wasn’t the type to not be able to let go, but that wasn’t possible now. In real life, solving problems required deep thinking but not in games. If it wasn’t possible to be rash and be quick to make decisions in game, why play? She was here to play and have fun, not to get angry?

Almost immediately.

Sect [Xiao Yu Mian Mian]: Lu Wei Wei Wei! You’ve gone overboard!

The members of the Xiao Yu Family who had been silent because reason wasn’t on their side came out. Some attacked, some tried to persuade and make excuses. Wei Wei looked at the screen full of complications, and her rage disappeared. She felt that this was meaningless.

This wasn’t the original Bi Hai Chao Sheng Ge.

All the friends who she had gone through struggles with had either disappeared or left. The ones remaining didn’t participate much, even the previous leader Die Meng was only popping in and out. Now that there were members of the Xiao Yu Family … …

After, it would be even harder to bear.

This kind of tense and manipulative atmosphere. This wasn’t Bi Ha Chao Sheng Ge. All the people had left, was it necessary to reminisce? Under a strong impulse without any thinking, Wei Wei left behind this line.

Sect [ Lu Wei Wei Wei]: I’ve said what needed to be said. Friends, when we meet again on the jianghu, we are still friends.

Finishing and not looking at the response, Wei Wei opened the sect page and pressed the right bottom corner – Quit.

Are you sure you want to quit Bi Hai Chao Sheng Ge?


Sect: There are no gatherings in the world that do not end. Lu Wei Wei Wei has quit Bi Hai Chao Sheng Ge.

Immediately after, the system refreshed and added a new notice.

System: Jianghu high ranking player Lu Wei Wei Wei has quit Bi Hai Chao Sheng Ge.

Originally, movements of players would not be reported by the system. Those on the overall rankings were subject to a different set of rules. The system would report their movements with their sect. The second the notice came out, the World Channel erupted in noise.

World [Bu Chuan Ku Ku Hao Liang Shuang] [2]: Lu Wei Wei Wei left Bi Hai?

World [Meng Xi Bi Tan]: Xiao Yu Yao Yao went to Bi Hai, Lu Wei probably couldn’t stand their sappiness.

World [Ne Mo]: Don’t mess around. Lu Wei’s husband Yi Xiao Nai He is much better than Zhen Shui Wu Xiang.

World [Fen Se Pao Pao]: Stronger in the game doesn’t mean anything. Zhen Shui Wu Xiang and Xiao Yu Yao Yao are the real thing. A cool looking guy and a pretty girl in real life. I saw pics.”

There was also another kind of voice.

World [Chan Yan Yi Kon]: Another strong player left Bi Hai, looks like there’s nothing left at Bi Hi. When Die Meng left, it was already in danger, now that Lu Wei Wei Wei has left, the sect is probably getting pushed off the top four soon.

World [Tian Xia Da Yi]: Lu Wei Wei Wei, come to our Tian Xia Da Yi sect, we’ll treat you much better than Bi Hai.

World [Tian Xia Da Yi]: Lu Wei Wei Wei, come to our Tian Xia Da Yi sect, we’ll treat you much better than Bi Hai.

World [Tian Xia Da Yi]: Lu Wei Wei Wei, come to our Tian Xia Da Yi sect, we’ll treat you much better than Bi Hai.

System: Player Tian Xia Da Yi is banned for one hour for spamming.

… …

… …

Compared to the World Channel, Wei Wei’s friend list was even busier.

Lei Shen Ni Ni: “Wei Wei, why are you leaving the sect, don’t!!!”

Wei Wei didn’t want to say too much and only said: “Nothing, just wanted to cool off a bit.”

Lei Shen Ni Ni; “Then you are coming back?”

Wei Wei unflinchingly replied one word: “No.”

Yu Gong and Hou Zi Jiu also sent messages over. Yu Gong was a smart person and instantly had connected it to the questions Wei Wei had asked before, “Leaving the sect had something to do with the Xiao Yu Family? And is related to me?”

Wei Wei said: “>o<”

Yu Gong: “Really. For me?”

Wei Wei: “Uh, no, what I wanted to say was, you aren’t that important.”

Yu Gong: “… …”

  1. Hi Hi!

    I’ve been a silent reader so far but I wanted to comment that this chapter was so reminiscent of what real online gaming is sometimes about. Because I also play online games I also know what it’s like to be pulled into drama like that. It’s so frustrating when you JUST WANT TO PLAY THE GAME but have to put up with people who can’t help but involve their real world drama into the game or want to cause friction and drama in a guild.

    Anyway, sorry for ranting 🙂 This book is a fun read and I can’t wait for the leads to finally meet! The evil in me really hopes that the guild will totally suffer after she leaves and that Wei Wei and Nai He will kick their asses in any competition ahead 🙂

    1. I haven’t played MMOPRGs before. I can’t imagine what it would be like, especially when the game is your “leisure” activity to let off steam.

      Well, it’s not said explicitly but the hint is there. She was the only high level pharmacist. And she is a very good fighter. The sect will slip down and down and I really hate Zhan Tian Xia even though I appreciate Gu Man’s skill in writing him. Just one chapter was enough to make me sick.

      1. Unfortunately, that’s what happens when you befriend the wrong type of people, they just drag you down before you know it. But he’s an easily influenced person anyway so I don’t feel guilty for their downfall 😛

      2. He’s very flattered by Xiao Yu Qing Qing and thinks that he’s “The Man”. I think he just selectively forgets the only reason he got the leadership was because he married the previous leader.

    2. As someone who used to play MMORPGs, I know exactly how you feel. And because of the nature of most MMORPGs you are expected to join clans, guilds, etc, to participate in quests, tournaments, guild wars, etc, etc. There’s also that person(s) who want to start drama. Personally, I played on a server with real life friends and a few others from my country – we did quests together, PK’ed together, created our own guilds and just generally looked out for each other. This cut-down on the drama, significantly!

      I must say, you can tell Gu Man spent time to properly research video games and video game culture. When I read, “Wei Wei opened the sect page and pressed the right bottom corner – Quit.” My reaction was ‘:O Gu Man’s one of us!’ That added with many other elements in the story, are so familiar to me it’s almost nostalgic.

      1. Gu Man probably did play (I don’t know why else she writes so slowly). I just don’t know what she played … … Other authors (especially for fantasy novels) have launched MMORPGs based on their novels. Mo Bao Fei Bao like listening to radiodramas that are made from other novels. Gu Man’s with jjwxc which doesn’t have that. Gu Man put a lot of effort into the minor characters from the world channel that gossip and comment on everything.

        Playing together with friends is fun. Non-spoiler: the only reason that Nai He had an account was because Yu Gong and the others pressured him into playing.

    3. This is the reason why I stopped playing certain online games. When you end up getting depressed because you lost half your friends because some people lied and made up stories about what evil deeds you did it’s about time to leave (back then it took 3 months for people to figure out they had been tricked and ask if they could be friends with me again – the last friend came back 6 months later – but I lost 3 friends who had lied about me; one of them was the person I thought was my best in-game friend; the other two just loved making drama and then lean back and watch the show unfold). These days if I play an online game, I play with my brother and his RL friends or I play solo without making friends.

      Drama sucks.

  2. *standing ovation* On part 1 of chapter 15 I said I loved Wei Wei, I take it back. I, Sage, ABSO-FREAKING-LUTELY love Wei Wei!!! So many times, the “heroines” in these stories annoy the crap out of me, but NOT Wei Wei. Wei Wei is perfection! 😀 xD

    Seriously, I had a huge grin on my face the entire chapter!! 😀 😀 😀
    Lu Wei Wei Wei FTW!!!!!

    I just hope, and pray that she maintains her bravado and spunk when her virtual world and the real world begin to intertwine and she starts meeting some of these people outside of the game.

    Also, I am loving her interactions with Yu Gong:

    Wei Wei said: “>o<”

    Yu Gong: “Really. For me?”

    Wei Wei: “Uh, no, what I wanted to say was, you aren’t that important.”

    Yu Gong: “… …” LOL

    As always, wyhcwe, thanks for another speedy update!

    1. Gu Man made Wei Wei’s personality very clear. What she does in real life and the game may be different but the underlying rationale is always the same. Her real life interactions with Yu Gong and the others will continue to be funny.

  3. Good morning. Thank you for updates. The last communication between Yu Gong and Wei Wei is so funny. It changes the tone of this chapter.

    1. Yeah, it’s a total reversal. Reminds you that it’s only a game and there are other things than the sect.

  4. You know, this Zhan Tian Xia guy is a chump, and has absolutely no leadership qualities. The Sect will fall to ruins in his hands. It is probably just as well that Wei Wei has left now rather than go down with an undeserving group.

    Xiao Yu Qing Qing is probably one of those spiteful, insecure people who is a loser (in looks and intelligence) in real life and thus can only get her gratification by flirting with guys online.

    As for Xiao Yu Yao Yao, I don’t know enough about her to comment, but I have listened to the radio drama, where she and Zhen Shui meet Wei Wei in real life. Without spoiling anything, I just want to say that a true beauty (like Wei Wei) does not feel the need to flaunt her beauty online by sending in pics. Only people with mediocre or slightly above average looks (Xiao Yu Yao Yao) feel the need to have others confirm their “beauty” by sending in pics. I also want to say that I am immensely satisfied with the meeting scene between Zhen Shui, Yao Yao, and Wei Wei. I don’t know if the radiodrama left anything out on that scene, but I am tempted to write my own little fanfic extension of that scene to show the aftermath in more vivid detail. 😛 Am I gloating for Wei Wei’s sake? YES!

    1. Ah, you haven’t gotten to the fall-out from the meeting yet? It would be the last episode, if my memory is correct. I think the meeting scene itself was complete. I would love to read a fanfic on the extension of the scene. Perhaps from Zhan Tian Xia or Xiao Yu Yao Yao’s point of view?

    2. Please…Spoil me….. I really want to know. and you will not spoil me at all..

      1. Can you understand Chinese? If you can, you could follow the tudou link and listen to the radiodrama. I think we are in episode 4 or 5 at the moment.

      2. I am happy to give details of the Wei Wei – Yao Yao – Zhen Zhui in person meeting according to the radio drama, but only if wyhcwe does not mind spoilers being posted on her translation thread.

      3. To wyhcwe –

        The fall out after the meeting? You mean the incident outside the main entrance of the restaurant? Yes, I DID get to that part. 😀 I loved it! Actually, I listened to the whole meeting and fall-out after the meeting several times, just simply because I was so satisfied with that scene. I wouldn’t be surprised if Zhen Shui went to the men’s restroom and banged his head against the wall in regret. 😛 I wished Gu Man had elaborated more on the aftermath of the meeting, but of course, since the story was mostly seen through Wei Wei’s perspective, we would not know about what the others did or thought after the meeting.

        In the novel, was there further mention of Zhen Shui and Yao Yao after the meeting with Wei Wei? Or did the couple just fall out of the story from that point on? I think in the radio drama, the couple ceased to appear after that meeting.

        I think I may actually write an extension of the meeting, something from Yao Yao’s perspective would be a good idea. If I do write a short extension of the meeting scene, would you mind posting up a link here on your site to direct any interested readers to a blog I share with Moonblossom? I would probably post the fanfic there. But of course, this plan is tentative, since I have to see if I have enough time.

      4. I’m totally okay with you writing a fanfic. I’ll link to it when you are finished. If it’s okay with you, I would only link when/after I post the chapter with the meeting because then there won’t be any spoilers. At this rate, it might be end of January before I get to that chapter.

        Oh, there’s something else after the meeting. Zhen Shui Wu Xiang meets Wei Wei once (if it could be called meeting) and then interacts Da Shen once. You get a bit of the perspective from Zhen Shui’s mind starting from the divorce, the meeting, the fall-out from the dinner and then the second interaction with Wei Wei.

      5. Can you email me the details of the second meeting between Zhen Shui, Wei Wei, and Da Shen? If I am to write a fan fic, I want to make sure my extension of the story is consistent with Zhen She’s thoughts. My email address can be found by clicking on my furry bear avatar.

        And of course, I will coordinate with you before posting the fic since I don’t want to spoil anything.

    3. Melanie you typed that “Only people with mediocre or slightly above average looks (Xiao Yu Yao Yao) feel the need to have others confirm their “beauty” by sending in pics.”
      I’m not sure if you meant that “people with mediocre or slightly above average looks” lacks confidence in them self and thus needs constant acknowledgement from others in order to boost their ego. I hope you didn’t mean it in that way. Because it’s an insult and prejudice against average looking people like me.

    4. Hello there. Can you please give me the link for your fanfic and for the spoiler of the scene too?

  5. Good morning,

    Wow. Wei wei rocks. Love her reaction, love this chapter.
    Can not wait for tommorow continuation, if related to today’s drama
    Wondering what will Nai He’s do?
    Hope there’s another clash with xiao yu family again. Ha3

    Tq wyhcwe (difficult nickname :))


    1. The Xiao Yu family hasn’t given up yet … … so there will definitely be more drama.

      Nai He’s response shall remain a surprise until the next chapter. ;D

  6. Korean mode – wei wei tjang ( super daebak) , I love how she pull them out, can’t wait to see the others know how more beauty wei wei than yy

  7. I’m so excited to know about the meetings now 😄 Fallout?! I hope nothing bad happens to Wei Wei in and out of the games 😁

  8. Wei Wei: “Uh, no, what I wanted to say was, you aren’t that important.”

    Oh no, weiwei sound like yixiaonaihe O.O

    XD ahahahahahahaahaha… i knew it she gonna quit the sect. well.. looks like invitation coming but i believe weiwei will just being a free spirit.

  9. Poor Yu Gong, he has the worst friends 😉

    I wonder how the sect leader will react when she finds out that her husband lost one of the guilds best players because of a (digitally created) pretty face and a few flirty conversations (with a possible renyao)?

  10. thanks a lot!
    hmph, it’s good she left the sect!it was no longer the original, and it was becoming too political! lol that last conversation, though!

  11. Omg, this novel is fantastic. Having some experience with MMORPGs myself and the possible internal struggles related to guilds, I find this damn close to reality sometimes.
    Awesome, I love this. Author is damn talented. Thank you for the translation.

  12. Thanks for the chapter!

    Heh, people and their relationships… Guild rule, no couples among the sect, just friends! That’s stupid nevermind. I’d hate it.

  13. Wei Wei: “Uh, no, what I wanted to say was, you aren’t that important.”

    Really is an ink making the surrounding black!!
    She is just like Yi Xiao Nai He now.

Tell me something
