[3] 夫君: (fu jun) Another more formal and traditional way of saying husband.

[4] 大人 (da ren): literally big person. Official, person of high status.

Chapter Seventeen Give To My Wife To Toss Around and Play

The classical idiom “meeting one’s enemies on a narrow road” [1], was probably used to describe this kind of situation.

Wei Wei looked at the opposite side, her and Nai He’s first opponent of the round robin and couldn’t help but hexian.

On Friday, the long-awaited Couples PK Tournament finally stared. The round-robin point matches occurred in the first half of the month and couldn’t be viewed. The opponents were matched together by the system randomly. The couples would form teams and click the NPC to get transported to a single stadium. It was only until they entered the stadium that they knew who their opponents were.

Wei Wei and Nai He had, under the cheers of Yu Gong and the others, entered the stadium. Upon entering, Wei Wei jiong – on the opposite side stood Zhen Shui Wu Xiang and Xiao Yu Yao Yao.


The contestants did not immediately start the PK match after entering the stadium. The system gave three minutes of preparation time. Nai He glanced one at the opponents and casually said: “I’ll take care of Xiao Yu Yao Yao first.”

Wei Wei immediately understood Da Shen’s strategy. Xiao Yu Yao Yao was much weaker, and her profession was healing. Against Nai He, she had no chance at all. Nai He could take care of her first and then, together with Wei Wei, defeat Zhen Shui Wu Xiang. This was the fastest strategy.

But this way, Nai He would have to kill Xiao Yu Yao Yao. The Xiao Yu Family might use the action as a starting point, to go onto the World Channel to say Nai He was bullying weak girls.

Even thought it was unbelievable, but if they did say something like that, Wei Wei wouldn’t find it shocking, because just yesterday, that had been what Xiao Yu Qing Qing accused them of on the World Channel.

Thinking of what had happened yesterday, Wei Wei was in turns irritated and embarrassed. That was called never-ending excitement.

It was the consequences from the incident with the stolen boss.

When Wei Wei had stated when she was quitting the sect, she had said that she was going to steal Xiao Yu Qing Qing’s bosses. However she wasn’t been important enough for Wei Wei to waste time lying in wait for. Originally Wei Wei had thought that whenever they met by accident, she could go over and do the deed. But yesterday when she had been together with Nai He doing a quest, Nai He suddenly threw away the half-completed quest and flew with her to another place.

At that place, Xiao Yu Qing Qing had been leading people to kill the boss.

After that, naturally, Wei Wei had stolen the first boss kill in her career of playing games, and had with very great luck obtained a material that was ultra-rare on the market. She gained a “Polar Ice Feather” and been the object of admiration on the system notice. (In the game, whenever somebody got something rare, the system would announce it)

But this way, Xiao Yu Qing Qing couldn’t take it.

Originally, the drop from the same boss that Yu Gong had killed didn’t have what Xiao Yu Qing Qing really wanted. Xiao Yu Qing Qing wanted was what this boss would rarely drop, the “Polar Ice Feather.” It was one of the new materials released by the system. Used along with other expensive and rare materials, it could forge a very strong new weapon.

Xiao Yu Qing Qing saw that the “Polar Ice Feather” had gone into Wei Wei’s hand and couldn’t let it go. She immediately went onto the World Channel to pretend to be humiliated, said that Yi Xiao Nai He and Lu Wei Wei Wei, acting on the basis of their high levels, were bullying weaker females. She also sobbed out that she was killing the boss in order to obtain “Polar Ice Feather” because the weapon she was trying to make was only missing it, and obtaining the other materials required a lot of money. But since the “Polar Ice Feather” had been stolen by Lu Wei Wei Wei, the expensive materials had become trash.

She was prepared, some of the others players cooperated with her. People on the World Channel were persuaded by her and started criticizing Wei Wei. Xiao Yu Qing Qing’s accomplice, using the general atmosphere, wanted Wei Wei to give up the “Polar Ice Feather”.

Xiao Yu Yao Yao also appear but didn’t directly accuse Wei Wei. She warmly sent out a few words, said that a few days ago, they had a misunderstanding, but Lu Wei Wei Wei’s actions today were over the line, and that she shouldn’t get into arguments, hoped that Lu Wei would be able to let it go BLAHBLAH.

The effect of the Most Beautiful was enormous. The moment the words came out, most of those watching agreed.

Zhen Shui Wu Xiang followed immediately and said that he was willing to pay a high price for Wei Wei’s “Polar Ice Feather.”

Wei Wei thought it was hilarious.

Xiao Yu Yao Yao’s words looked like they were reconciliatory but in reality, they took away her choices. Even if she said what really happened, everyone would still think that she was narrow-minded and greedy. And Zhen Shui Wu Xiang acted as the third party, trying to negotiate a “compromise”, but showing that even though you had stolen our boss, we were still willing to pay money to buy back what you had stolen. We are so pitiful, so bullied, so sincere.

Wei Wei couldn’t be more disgusted and she wasn’t easily beaten. Last time, she had taken a screenshot of Zhan Tian Xia’s word and the discussion in the sect. But before she could reply, someone called “Jiu Shi Bu Chi Fan[2]” showed up, and said that it was really Xiao Yu Qing Qing stealing his team’s boss, Xiao Yu Qing Qing was the one bullying others using her high level and Lu Wei Wei Wei was the person who came to their aid.

Xiao Yu Qing Qing obviously wouldn’t admit it, but that avatar quickly uploaded a video of Xiao Yu Qing Qing killing people and stealing the boss onto the game forum. This time, the accusation had proof to back it up. Xiao Yu Qing Qing had no defense and quickly vanished.

Not even talking about the people on the World Channel, even Wei Wei was left wide-eyed at the dramatic shift. She wasn’t stupid and thinking critically, understood.

Couldn’t help but want to laugh.

The World Channel erupted again. The players who had blindly followed the Xiao Yu Family had started to feel ashamed. Some disappeared along with Xiao Yu Qing Qing, others started apologizing to Wei Wei.

Wei Wei didn’t really care for their attacks, but since she had the chance, not taking it would be such a waste. So she pretended to be very calm and steady and said –

World [Lu Wei Wei Wei]: Really didn’t want to say anything. Thought that the innocent will always be innocent, and the guilty shown to be guilty. But after this kind of accusations, suddenly feel very sad.

Wei Wei was very sickened by herself, but for effect, still sent it. Hehe, who doesn’t know how to pretend to be the victim ~~~By saying this, nobody would believe that she would ever steal Xiao Yu Qing Qing’s bosses even if she did ~~~


Ah, she had been influenced too much by Da Shen … …

The incident was ending and Wei Wei was planning on leaving. She was shocked to see a line come up on the World Channel. The speaker was her usually taciturn fujun Daren.[3] [4]

World [Yi Xiao Nai He]: High price forever buying Polar Ice Feathers

Yi Xiao Nai He very very rarely spoke in the World Channel, basically never, so the moment his words popped out, the effects were like this –

World [Tian Shi La Mo]: Wah, group photo, group photo

World [Shua Dao De Hong Shao Rou]: (starry eyed expression) Give me an autograph.

… …

… …

Wei Wei felt cold sweat forming and try to remember her reaction to meeting Nai He for the first time … …

So embarrassing ~~~

After the crowd of group shots, some people started to get curious.

World [Cai Mi Zhu]: Yi Xiao, are you gathering Polar Ice Feathers to make new weapons?

World [Yi Xiao Nai he]: Not interested.

World [Cai Mi Zhu]: (confused expression) then what are you gathering them for?

World [Yi Xiao Nai He]; To give to my wife to toss around and play.

Wei Wei burst into laughter. Da Shen, you really are devious … …

Closing the World Channel, Wei Wei had turned towards Nai He: “That “Jiu Shi Bu Chi Fan” is one of you guy’s puppet accounts?”

It most likely was. Otherwise how coincidental it was that her and Nai He were going over to steal the boss and that person just happened to record it. But they were very efficient. She had only bowed down under Yu Gong’s pressure two days ago to explain the origins … …

As expected, Nai He said: “Yu Gong and the others”

Yu Gong smugly took over: “The three of us started puppet accounts to steal bosses, but only Xiao Yu Qing Qing. We stole it three times before she couldn’t resist killing us, hahaha!”

The more he said, the pleased he was with himself. He sent multiple expressions of a person with a hand on the waist and laughing. He was just waiting for Wei Wei to compliment him, but what he got was only a rueful line from Wei Wei: “Evil, too evil.”

Yu Gong felt victimized, “It was laosan’s plan, we’re innocent.”

A! It was actually Da Shen’s strategy!

Wei Wei immediately sent an emoticon of a small fist and a face with starry eyes: “Da Shen, you are so awesome!”

Yu Gong and the others dropped down and pretended to be dead.

She returned from her memories. At the moment, listening to Nai He saying he would kill Xiao Yu Yao Yao first, Wei Wei couldn’t help but worry.

“If you kill her, that would be best. We would finish much faster, but based on my understanding of the Xiao Yu Family, they might start something again on the World Channel.”

Da Shen frowned: “Killing them requires discussion?”

Wei Wei: “… …”

True – –

Killing them did not truly require any discussion. Wei Wei felt, with the equipment that Da Shen gave her, she had at least a 50% chance of killing them one-on-two. Before, she and Zhen Shui were even because he had better equipment. Now that her equipment was also up to par, and Zhen Shui had been killed three levels by Da Shen… …

Thinking of this, an idea flew through Wei Wei’s mind. She couldn’t help be eager to try: “Why don’t you say behind as support and I’ll go up alone! If I can’t do it, then you come.”

“… …”

Nai He seemed to speechlessly stare at her for a while, and then silently hugged his qin and went into the corner.

Wei Wei’s insides started burning!

But after three minutes, her burning flames were mercilessly extinguished.

Zhen Shui Wu Xiang and Xiao Yu Yao Yao didn’t fight but ran away! After the three minute preparation time, they immediately gave up, and disappeared in the blink of an eye.


Wei Wei was depressed.

She was that scary, really … …

Carrying all those feelings of depression, Wei Wei tugged Nai He and headed for the second matchup. Once again the opponents were familiar people.

Zhan Tian Xia and Die Meng Wei Xing.

  1. The story gets better and better 🙂 HaHa! Those two losers ran away 🙂
    And only 3 more chapters until they meet!!

  2. Oh look, the cowards ran away with their tails tucked between their legs. Why am I not surprised?

    Again, the interactions between Wei Wei and Yu Gong are awesome. I love that teasing, joking dynamic that has developed between the two. 😀

    I hope Wei Wei asks Yi Xiao to let her fight Zhan Tian alone. Also, what kind of person is Die Meng? I know she was the leader of the sect but we don’t get much more about her, I hope we learn more about her next chapter. Hopefully, she isn’t as pathetic as Zhan Tian.

    1. Before she gave the leadership position away, Die Meng was probably a good leader. Otherwise, the sect wouldn’t have gotten to the top four. However, the sect at the time was most likely a concentrated group of friends including Wei Wei. We learn more about her next chapter. 😀

  3. argh..take 5 minute to read it..and i’m so excited..arghhh..yup losers alwayssss like that..really love this couple..thanks..

  4. Thank you! I love all of their sense of humor. Naihe’s appearance and declaration on the World Channel. Yup, definite Lu Wei Wei Wei’s fun in. If Xiao Yu Qing Qing was still on, she would’ve spat out blood. Love Yu Gong and Wei Wei’s interaction too and how Wei Wei always manage to pick on the guys so easily.

      1. Lol. I noticed auto correct wrote fun in when I wanted to type fujun! And you understood! I would’ve been ???? 😝

      2. I was a bit confused but there’s always that tendency for people to know what word you wrote if the first and last letters are there (E.g happy vs hpapy). So with the f and the n I got it.

  5. Morning all, can’t wait more about die Meng, cause wei2 join her group, may I know, is there any second lead male or female in wei2 and nai he ‘s love?

    1. There is no second male lead or female lead that “threatens” their relationship like other romantic novels. Zhen Shui Wu Xiang comes the closest in that he “married” Wei Wei previously. Both Nai He and Wei Wei are “white” before their relationship.

  6. Thank you for your awesome translations.
    Most definitely brings back memories of many many years ago when my generation played dungeons & dragons.
    Feeling sentimental. …… 😢

  7. Thank you so much for your fast translation. Nai He really takes care of his wifey!

    1. Haha, he is very protective. I particularly like how, in Wei Wei’s eyes, all of Nai He’s actions are amazing and good while if they were performed by somebody else, they were evil and underhanded.

      1. yesss..i’m agree with u..anything Nai He action will make Wei Wei melt..heehee..me tooo…

  8. This lurker will login and say thank you today~~`Other than Ren, you are the only translator who posts everyday 😀 I recommend checking out Coiling Dragon, btw. But you may stop updating b/c of the addiction- Mawhahahaha!

      1. Ohh, that book. I read part of it. I didn’t realize they were starting to translate 玄幻 (xuanhuan) novels. But shushengbar is a bit geared towards a female audience. There are lots of good xuanhuan novels. Maybe I should translate one of those instead … … I liked 唐家三少 but most xuanhuan novels are millions of words.

  9. Thanks for the translation.. now i can expand my interest reading cnovel.. First time commenting… I am a bit confuse……
    “Wei Wei felt cold sweat forming and try to remember her reaction to meeting Nai He for the first time “… …
    Does this mean she met Nai He already?

    1. At the bridge. If you look at chapter two, I think it goes like: Da Shen-a! Rich person-a. One eye sprouting money signs the other hearts.

  10. I see… lol…. my bad… because of my poor english. They met in the game 🙂
    Actually i thought they meet in real life… thats why i was confused…
    Thanks for the explanation. I really love wei2.. shes smart and has guts… a real heroine… cant wait to see the real romance flourish..

  11. I would love to know exactly how rich Zhen Shui is compared to Nai He in real life, because every time there is a conflict, Zhen Shui pops out of nowhere and offers money to Wei Wei to show his “deep devotion” to Xiao Yu Yao Yao. He’s really starting to annoy me with his richer-than-thou-and-hence-mightier-than-thou attitude.

    As for Nai He, he is just so cool. He barely speaks, but when he does, the effect is resounding. Nai He would never flaunt his money in front of others when someone mistreats Wei Wei online. Instead of throwing his money left and right, he just gets even through other tactics. I love a leading man who is slightly shady but still very protective of his lady love.

    1. I don’t think that he’s really *that* rich. It doesn’t really matter, in any case. Skill wins over money. Also, if he is really that “rich”, I don’t think he would be in a relationship with somebody like Xiao Yu Yao Yao (average university, above average beauty) but Gu Man doesn’t write enough about their backgrounds. If she did something like that, it would turn into a korean drama with makjang.

      1. How about Nai He? Is he wealthy? How is his wealth compared to Feng Teng’s? By the way, how old are all the main and important supporting characters in the novel (Wei Wei, Xiao Nai, Zhen Shui, etc)?
        *wyhcwe: sorry Melanie, edited your comment. 🙂

      2. Um, you have to read to find out. The calculation is a bit complicated. You want me to email you?

      3. Oops sorry, that was unintentional. Thanks for catching that. Yes, please do email me the details. I don’t want to write something in the fanfic that will be covered in the later chapters or the epilogues or be inconsistent with the author’s original work.

  12. xiaoyu family is so annoying tbh, i feel like i want to kill all the xiaoyu clan!! dammit, can’t the server banned them?? damn annoying!!

    …. but this chapter is hilarious.. wah… the opponent running away.. what a coward. it’s just luwei weiwei not even the great master yixiaonaihe!!

  13. thank you—-!
    -falls down with laughter- so funny—–! wei wei actually…she actually called her teammate evil, but praised nai he! hilarious!
    lol, those people running away! heh, two people she knows in a row?hahaha
