微微一笑很倾城 Chapter Twenty Nine “The Most Terrifying Team In History”

We get to see some familiar people again!

Chapter Twenty Nine The Most Terrifying Team in History

Wei Wei dropped offline within 0.1 seconds.

In the minute after, Wei Wei’s thought was: Luckily I ran quickly

After one minute, Wei Wei started to regret it. Why did she have to go offline, it was just a joke. Running away made her seem even more suspicious. No way! She had to be calm. Even if she wasn’t calm, she had to pretend to be even more so.

So Wei Wei climbed online again. Upon arrival, she saw her otherworldly white-clade fujun daren standing together with Mo Zha Ta. Before they could speak, Wei Wei sent a furious emoticon.

“The internet just disconnected!”

“… …”

In one of the dorms of UA, a male student called Hao Mei choked. He turned his head to look at the person, who, because there had been no empty seat, had carelessly placed his laptop on his knees and logged into the game, “You wife is a real genius.”

“You’re too complimentary.” Xiao Nai modestly said. But his face still had a “Of course my wife is a genius” expression. The corners of his lips held laughter, his eyes that were gazing at the laptop full of light, his long and narrow fingers tapping slowly on the keyboard: “The campus internet is truly not reliable.”

This time it was Wei Wei that choked.

Why was it that seeing Da Shen’s benevolent reply, her heart was full of thorns and her hairs rose. Wei Wei uncontrollably thought back a very long time ago to that poor person called Mo Dao Shi Xue who had offended Da Shen. Before Da Shen had acted, there hadn’t been any forewarning. It could be seen that he was a very patient opponent. Fine, if it is a bomb, let it explode as early as possible. Otherwise, the deeper it is buried, the bigger the explosion.

But, even if Wei Wei was ready to face life bravely, she couldn’t help but make one last final struggle. It was said, attack was the best defense … …


Wei Wei: “Uh, I head that somebody called you today to declare their affections.”

Xiao Nai looked at Hao Mei once this line popped up. Hao Mei stared fixedly at his own computer, cold sweat running down his back.

Xiao Nai smiled slightly, and easily responded.

Yi Xiao Nai He: “Today, there was only somebody calling to request me to perform the guzheng for the Graduation celebration.”


A period of silence later.

Mo Zha Ta: “Yu Gong’s asking me to help scrub his back. Leaving, leaving.”

He vanished in a blink of an eye.

Wei Wei wanted to grab him back and beat him with a paddle eighty times. You don’t lie about your intelligence. It can kill people.

In the game, the lotus flowers were blooming. The musician had already sat down and was playing his qin, “Furen can be assured, I have never been confessed to from when I was very little ‘til now.”

Wei Wei could almost cry. If you hadn’t been confessed to, then you haven’t. Did he have to emphasize “from when I was very little ‘til now”? Da Shen was definitely doing it on purpose.

Wait a second!

That line went around her head a few times. Wei Wei suddenly felt that it wasn’t right. Da Shen said he had never been confessed to?! That wasn’t possible! She had seen it with her own eyes!

Wei Wei: “… … I’ve seen you getting confessed to.”

Wei Wei started thinking back to the times before when she would occasionally see him. One occasion had been when he had carelessly brushed off the pink letter a female student had passed.

Xiao Nai’s brows creased: “What time?”

Wei Wei tried to recall her memories. Because it was a memorable occasion to see Da Shen, she still remembered the general time.

“End of last term, in front of the library. I saw somebody give you a love letter.”

A short pause after.

Yi Xiao Nai He: “I think I have an impression.”

See, see. And he said he never been confessed to before. Wei Wei side-eyed him.

Yi Xiao Nai He: “It was a girl, probably was handing out flyers.”

Wei Wei: “… … not likely.”

Yi Xiao Nai He: “Why not? So there are people that will suddenly confess on the road, or is it that … …”

Yi Xiao Nai He: “Furen has encountered it before?”

Wei Wei felt cold sweat forming. She had encountered that before, and not just once.

The white-clothed musician sighed: “Furen is very popular.”

It’s over. It’s getting worse by the moment. Wei Wei hurriedly said: “No,no. Actually too much of these kinds of things are very bothersome.”

Ah, wrong. That sounded like she was boasting.

Wie Wei changed her explanation: “That is, this kind of thing should be measured in quality and not quantity. It’s enough that you have me.”

The result of the hands being faster than the brain is that ––extra stuff skipped the filter in the brain and came out of the hands.

0.001 seconds later, it was a rare occasion to see Da Shen shocked motionless.

Wei Wei quickly fled offline again.

Wei Wei was self-examining.

She was wrong.

She shouldn’t have copied bad things. Shouldn’t have copied Yu Gong and did some kind of “on the point” remark. Look at what had happened. Once you got used to it, the result was that, at critical times, she made it worse for herself.

It was over. How could she see Da Shen tomorrow? This wouldn’t work. She had to leave early tomorrow before Da Shen could call over. Thinking of calling, the dorm phone started to ring. It shocked Wei Wei out of her own thoughts.

There was only her in the dorm. Wei Wei ran over to take it.


“It’s me.”

Da Shen … … also called over … … Wei Wei swallowed dryly, and half-heartedly said: “… … You also logged off?”

“Not logged off,” Xiao Nai said clearly, “the campus internet today isn’t very reliable. I also got disconnected.”

Wei Wei >_<. Da Shen, was it that if you don’t embarrass me several times a day, you couldn’t sleep?!

Almost as though he could see Wei Wei’s face as she was embarrassed to the point of speechlessness, Xiao Nai laughed gently.

“Wei Wei, I’m very happy.”

The deep voice reverberated around the empty hallway. Xiao Nai held his cellphone and leaned against the wall. He thought back to when he took out his phone and left the dorm, how his friends had started laughing at him.

“Calling our Bei meinv now?” [1]

They all knew what he was coming out to do. It was probably because his thoughts at the time couldn’t be masked.

Even if he usually never outwardly expressed his feelings.

Da Shen said he was happy … … because of what she had said?

Wei Wei’s fingers, of their own accord, start winding the telephone cord. A long time later, there was a very quiet “En.”

Both sides of the call were quiet, as though speaking wasn’t necessary. Later, Wei Wei finally found another topic: “The, I asked the company to give us shenshou in the contract.”

“Hao Mei already told me.”

“I only asked for four, you don’t have a share.” Truthfully, there was a part for him. But she didn’t know if it would succeed, so it was better to get his hopes up first.

Wei Wei winded the telephone cord in loops again and again: “I only asked for a small tiger, the attributes aren’t as good as yours. Also, the gender isn’t the same as your tiger.”

Xiao Nai quickly understood her meaning but refused to say it, only laughed quietly: “So?”

“Nothing. The next time we go online, let’s get them to marry. Maybe they will have immortal level offspring.”

“Okay.” Xiao Nai said, “Next time, I’ll ask my tiger if he is willing.”

This needed asking?! Wei Wei got angry; “This entire game, there is only this one female tiger. He won’t dare to refuse!”

Xiao Nai laughed deep in his throat: “En, that’s true. He definitely would be willing.”

It was as through a feather gently brushed at the most sensitive spot in her heart. Wei Wei felt she couldn’t hold the phone up. Even though Xiao Nai was not in front of her, her eyes couldn’t stop wondering. When her eyes saw the clock on Si Si’s desk, a certain event that had been forgotten somewhere outside the Milky Way finally floated up in her head.

Wei Wei: “Are you free right now?”


“Go online again, help my friend kill a boss.”

Wei Wei sweated as she entered her password. This was her third time logging on today. She saw Lei Shen Ni Ni’s plea as she arrived.

“Wei Wei, you were gone!”

Wei Wei guiltily replied: “Disconnected . . . . . .”

Lei Shen Ni Ni: “Oh, I thought you forgot me.”

Wei Wei felt even more guilty: “No … … how many spots do you have? I’m taking somebody strong over.”

Lei Shen Ni Ni: “Didn’t call anybody yet. You come over with your friend.”

Finishing her chat with Lei Shen Ni Ni, Nai He had already appeared by her said. Wei Wei shouted at him, but there was no response. After a minute, the musician finally said: “Here, just had to clear away the bystanders.”

The bystanders … …

Wei Wei speechlessly added him onto the team. The two quickly travelled to the entrance of the Netherworld cave.

Lei Shen Ni Ni had already been there waiting for them. Seeing that the “strong player” that Wei Wei brought over was actually Yi Xiao Nai He, she fell into disarray. In a private message, she yelled at Wei Wei; “Yi Xiao Nai He is helping me with a boss?! ! ! ! ! !”

Wei Wei smiled: “En, it’s very enjoyable fighting with him. Later, let him be in command.”

Lei Shen Ni Ni sent a long string of drooling emoticons.

Wei Wei: “I haven’t fought the Netherworld boss before. Nai He?”

Yi Xiao Nai He; “No.”

Wei Wei: “I’ll go look it up.”

Even though Wei Wei herself didn’t like looking at guides, but when helping somebody else, it was better to be prepared.

“No need.” Nai He said, “Just call over a long-distance attacker, it would be quicker that way.”

Lei Shen Ni Ni blindly obeyed: “Okay, I’ll ask in the sect, there’s definitely going to be somebody that wants to pass it.”

As she was saying so, she opened the sect channel to ask.

Sect [Lei Shen Ni Ni]: Anybody want a chance at the Netherworld crone, a long-distance and another else.

There was somebody responding immediately, but the person was a bit of a surprise.

Sect [Zhen Shui Wu Xiang]: Two spots? I’ll come over with Yao Yao, give me a moment.

Lei Shen Ni Ni’s eyes widened. Before she could think of a good excuse to refuse, Zhen Shui had already taken Xiao Yu Yao Yao and appeared at the entrance.

The two sides met and Wei Wei instantly jiong.

Lei Shen Ni Ni had a sudden urge to kill herself. Her brain kept on coming up with “Today’s weather isn’t that good, lets retreat,” “Today is World Peace Day, let’s not fight” “I suddenly have diarrhoea” etc etc. excuses. Finally, they all condensed into one strong urge ––Why isn’t the power going off!

Under such conditions, Lei Shen Ni Ni said: “This, does somebody not want to come?”

Okay. Originally, Zhen Shui and Xiao Yu Yao Yao had wanted to leave. But after Ni Ni had said that, they couldn’t leave even if they wanted to.

It would be too embarrassing.

Lei Shen Ni Ni was in their sect. Why should it be them that has to leave?

Wei Wei really didn’t want to work together with Zhen Shui and the others, but first, she was doing this as a favour to Lei Shen Ni Ni, and second … … she got here first. It should be them that should leave.

It was quiet for a full minute.

Yi Xiao Nai He: “Team up.”

  1. Wahhhh! I wonder if Yao Yao and Zhen Shui also go to the same university as Wei Wei and Nai He. And I wonder if, at the end, both Yao Yao and Zhen Shui will know the real faces of both Wei Wei and Nai He. Will they be shocked? Will the rest of Wei Wei’s old sect members be shocked to see that Wei Wei is pretty and not a man? I want that moment to happen! Especially towards the old sect leader who was calling out Wei Wei (poor WW).

  2. Ah, the world is really too small. You just too easy to meet your adversary with no effort at all.

    1. Well, at least the server is too small. Lei Shen Ni Ni didn’t not think her action through. She was blinded by the halo around Yi Xiao Nai He. 😀

  3. Yay, an update! Haha, I could easily imagine Nai He’s shocked expression after Wei Wei announced her quality over quantity. Let’s applaud our brave heroine hehe. Looking forward to more updates.

  4. Spazzing… omg.. seriously im so out of words.. this chaptet is the best so far.

    That aside i think this novel will not be easy to adapt.. but croasing fingers it will happen one day

    1. I hope so too. But viewership of Silent Separation hasn’t been that high so I’m worried at the possibility of this novel. Maybe Silent Separation was affected by the perceptions people had after Shan Shan?

      1. Hm… silent separation seems to be more melodrama with much angst.
        Not really fun to watch. The female lead thinks too much too tiring to watch.

        Here Wei Wei is smart but funny too as she acts based on a girl in love which results in silly sweet actions. So the viewer effect would differ.
        Actually like Wei Wei as she’s not silly girl but a girl in love.
        Love how she smartly handles the giftings.

      2. agree with fuzzy, silent saperation is very angst..

        imo it’s hard to convey the angst feeling into screen..i currently at ep5, i think the story move way tooooooo slow eventhough the actors n actress done great job.

        this novel can make a great adaptation if they have a very good CG team.. i can already imagine how it would look like.

  5. Thank you! I enjoy reading your updates daily.

    Lol. Yi Xiao Nai He: “Why not? So there are people that will suddenly confess on the road, or is it that … …” I was thinking, isn’t that what Nai He did to Wei Wei at the bridge? Even if he didn’t confess, but he proposed instead! Guess it doesn’t count if in the game?

    Gotta love Ni Ni. I totally LOL when she hoped the power went out.

    Oh Nai He, such sportsmanship. 😊

    1. Ho! Well, he didn’t really confess as in “I like you and would like to have a relationship with you”. He was more like “Would you get married to me?”

      Ni Ni is an invaluable person who serves as a source of hilarity. In a meta perspective, Lei Shen Ni Ni is a narrative device through her gossip.

  6. Thank you….thanks to you for making me jump out of bed gleefully every morning…
    Trying to imagine our super cool Xiao Nai not able to masked his thoughts n taking his phone to call Wei Wei in front of his friends…i m feeling shy…aahhh….

    1. The nice thing I like about Xiao Nai is that he isn’t a corpse face (really cold stern paralyzed face type) but more aloof yet gentle and friendly. Wei Wei has such a great effect on him. But I really feel for Wei Wei – the amount of teasing she gets from Xiao Nai … …

      1. Yes..man of few words
        But a few strong yet sweet actions. ….
        A REAL man. Totally melts Wei Wei too.

        Thank you for the beautiful translations.

  7. my mind blown each time naihe call weiwei furen.. furen.. furen..
    just simple “its enough you have me” makes him so happy, he is so in love.. so does weiwei.. can this be even sweeter??

    its killing me rite now.. T.T
    where is my own yixiaonaihe?? i want one too

  8. “You’re too complimentary.” Xiao Nai modestly said. But his face still had a “Of course my wife is a genius” expression.
    – *dies lol-ing*

    furen, furen, furen,
    – that repetitive of furen word still dumbstruck me.. oh… naihe… *cries a pacific ocean*

    and even xiao nai cannot cover his face when he’s in love xD getting teased by his roommate (bystanders xD)

  9. Thanks a lot!
    Funny, ahaha, so funny! Wah—-the interactions are hilarious! They’re so in love! I thought this a few chapters ago, but….official otp!! Woo, woo—-!

  10. I want you to know that this story is still being read to this day and your translations both this and the edited version are so very helpful! I enjoy reading your translation and learning about the story through your notes. I came from watching both the tv show and movie plus reading the comic/manhua and I always felt like I was still missing out on so much. I felt that most especially in this particular scene. So after reading your translation, I felt as if I was understanding the scene for the first time- or I guess understanding Xiao Nai. Lol Really love this chapter.
