微微一笑很倾城 Chapter Thirty One “Meiren Shixiong”

Xiao Nai goes away. Wei Wei finally meets Mo Zha Ta in real life.

[1] 打酱油: literally buying soy sauce. It mean usually that the child is actually old enough to go out alone, so already not a baby but not a teenager.

[2] 温水煮青蛙: using warm water to cook a frog. It implies that somebody is proceeding slowly with their plans, as it would be much faster to cook a frog with hot water. If you use warm water, the frog won’t try to escape, but if you put the frog in boiling water, it will.

[3] 巫山云雨: 巫山(Mount Wu) 云雨 (Clouds and rain) is the literal meaning. However, 云雨 also implies sexual intercourse.

[4] There is 糠师傅 and 康师傅 (both spelt kang shi fu). However, the first is a knockoff of the second, which is a very large food brand and company in China.

[5] The gas is carbon dioxide. So simpler than breathing.

[6] 老婆本: lao po ben. It’s the amount of wealth that a man “needs” to have, which usually includes a car, a house and other possessions, before a woman would most likely consider marrying him. It has developed in modern China due to the rise in house prices as well as the increased cost of living and education for children. In China, if a man doesn’t have enough, the family of the female would not agree to the marriage.

Chapter Thirty One Meiren Shixiong

System: “Lei Shen Ni Ni, Yi Xiao Nai He, Lu Wei Wei Wei, Zhen Shui Wu Xiang, Xiao Yu Yao Yao has saved the weak, killed monsters and defeated the Ancient Crone of the Netherworld. They had saved the world, their deeds to be carved into history and shock all of jianghu


[Mo Chuang Zhang]: Did I read it wrong?

[SCPanda]: Whao, the system had a bug!

[Nu Nu . . .]: Played for this long, only found out today that this game lets names be repeated.

[Mo Dao Shi Xue]: What is this! I was chopped all that time for nothing!

[Wu Di Ben Dao]: Wife, let’s get back together. These people could fight a boss together, we have no reason to not be together! Please, please, Wifey, I love you!

[Bu Chuan Ku Ku Hao Liang Shuang]: Kao, I just went to wash underwear. Can’t even keep up.

[SCPanda]: Shock. Liang Shuang xiong you actually have underwear!

[Bu Chuan Ku Ku Hao Liang Shuang]: . . . . . .

[Bu Chuan Ku Ku Hao Liang Shuang]: Those that don’t have underwear are urchins. Those that have but do not wear them are heroes.

[SCPanda]: Why wash if you don’t wear them?

[Bu Chuan Ku Ku Hao Liang Shuang]: Why are you so concerned about my underwear? What intentions do you have!

[Dong Nang Zhi Shang]: Guys . . . for flirting please use private chat . . . . . otherwise the audience might get embarrassed.


[Lu Wei Wei Wei]: Ni Ni, we’re going, If you have something, call me. If I’m not there, just find Nai He ^_^

[Lei Shen Ni Ni]: Ah!!! Really?!!!

[Yi Xiao Nai He]: Yes.

[Lu Wei Wei Wei]: ^_^, we’re going, 8

[Lei Shen Ni Ni]: Wait, we haven’t divided the drop yet.

The atmosphere in the caves was weird enough that Wei Wei didn’t want to stay anymore. She retreated along with Nai He before Ni Ni divided the drop. She looked at the silent musician beside her and asked: “What should we go now?”

“Give me a second, on the phone.”


Wei Wei thought of a certain possibility, “Uh, you weren’t, where you fighting when on the phone?”

Wei Wei swore, she was only casually asking. But Da Shen’s very natural “En” as though it was expected shocked her completely. It was true … …

Wei Wei concentrated for a beat and couldn’t imagine it: “…. …How were you controlling with one hand?”

“… … earphones.”

Right, you could use earphones to take calls. Wei Wei said: “Then you continue.”

She hadn’t planned on being online for this long but Wei Wei’s head didn’t have the worlds “coming offline” in there. What was occupying space was the image of Da Shen wearing headphones, expression calm as he listened to the call. To be on the phone and at the same time do that kind of moves at the same time. Da Shen, by some standards, was strong to the point of impossibility.

Wei Wei stared in a daze at the red and white shadows sitting together side by side, her red dress floating in the wind.

A few moments later, the musician said: “Wei Wei, I need to go to Shanghai tomorrow.”

It was only eleven, but the cafeteria near the library already flooded with long lines. Wei Wei and her friends were at the very end. Looking at the crowd in front of them, she could only sigh.

Er Xi was right behind her and laughed tauntingly: “Hey hey hey. Even if your Da Shen isn’t here, you don’t have to sigh because of eating with us!”

Wei Wei had heard this multiple times already when they had been studying together this morning. She ignored Er Xi and arched her neck to see what the food choices were today.

Er Xi saw that she wasn’t responding and even more provokingly asked: “Wei Wei, what base has you and your Da Shen proceeded to?”

Wei Wei turned her head, “… … We’ve only met for a week, okay!”

Si Si came over: “You guys met for two hours and confirmed your relationship. Based on that speed, getting together for a week, the kids can be buying soy sauce.” [1]

“… …” Wei Wei: “Well, there is nothing, I don’t know where the soy sauce store is right now.”

Xiao Ling didn’t believe her: “No way, or is Xiao Da Shen planning on using warm water to cook the frog.”[2]

Wei Wei >_<: “You are a frog.”

Xiao Ling felt it was more reasonable the more she thought about it, “It’s true, it’s definitely this. First, it is using a large fire to boil the water, and then a small flame to slowly boil. Sooner or later, this frog of yours will be eaten!”

Er Xi also found a taste of truth: “Very reasonable. Da Shen’s battle strategy is probably this. First a blitzkrieg, and now it’s trench warfare. Hehehehe.” Her expression was very perverted, “Wei Wei, when are you guys going to have a battle of attrition!”

Si Si agreed and said: “Yeah. First is a tropic rainstorm to confuse your sense of direction. Then it’s a warm breeze and drizzles to mess with your head, after that, what kind of rain is it?”

Si Si tried to think of the next. Wei Wei’s mind came up suddenly with ––

Wu Shan Clouds and Rain. [3]


Wei Wei embarrassed herself with her own thoughts.

Er Xi was still emphasizing: “Attrition battle, battle of attrition. Attrition, attrition.”

Wei Wei and the others hadn’t understood what she was implying. However, a certain male student in the line behind them had let out a sound.

Four pairs of eyes turned to look.

It was a tall male student. He had a baby face, very large eyes, looking like a high school student. He had been trying to following behind them earlier stealthily. Er Xi and the others had seen many of this type before when with Wei Wei. They all had the intentions but not the bravery so the girls didn’t pay attention.

That student’s white face instantly turned red as they stared. He scratched his head, and embarrassedly said to Wei Wei: “Haha, sansao, I’m Mo Zha Ta.”

Wei Wei descended into chaos.

Mo Zha Ta? Hao Mei? Da Shen’s dormmate! The one she knew?! No! Wei Wei glared. What they had been discussing before, he had heard all of it?! Ahahah, that was so embarrassing.

And … …

Wei Wei thought back to how Mo Zha Ta had described himself. Supposedly blacker than coal. She looked at the white face of this person before her … …

Wei Wei fell into a fury.

Very good, this person from beginning to end didn’t say the truth. Yesterday, he had given her fake intelligence. Wei Wei added the new hate to the old enmity, and smile very friendly at him, slowly saying: “So it is ––Mei––ren––shi––xiong

And so … …

Under the shocked eyes of everybody around, Mo Zha Ta’s white and tender baby face totally warped.

Multiple minutes later, Mo Zha Ta was in a certain dark corner of the cafeteria chewing on lettuce. He furiously took out his phone to complain to a certain someone: Your wife is flirting with me.

Very quickly, a certain somebody returned: Enjoy it, I don’t mind.

Mo Zha Ta almost threw up blood.

It had to be said, on the matter of two certain somebody’s ability to incite people into a blinding fury, it was really a thousand miles apart, a meeting of minds.

The whole day, there was no news from Xiao Nai. At night, Wei Wei returned from studying and couldn’t resist going online. Xiao Nai obviously wasn’t on but Wei Wei went to their house. She moved around the furniture, watered the plants in the garden and walked around a few times.

A while later Yu Gong and the others came online. Wei Wei met up with them, gave Yu Gong and Hou Zi Jiu their new shenshou. They started fighting and talked aimlessly.

Yu Gong: “Kang shifu’s new instant noodles aren’t very good.”

Wei Wei: “There are imitation brands for instant noodles?”

Hou Zi Jiu: “He is a pig so he eats Kang shifu, we eat Kangshifu.”[4]

Yu Gong: “Ugh, can’t compare to laosan. He’s now away, fine wine at hand, surrounded by beauties.”

Wei Wei: “… …”

Mo Zha Ta had lost to Wei Wei today and was trying persistently to create conflict: “Sansao, don’t get angry. When he returns, we’ll help you educate him.”

Wei Wei: “>o<, not angry. I’m very comforted.”

Wei Wei: “Yu Gong used idioms correctly this time.”

Yu Gong feel hurt: “I didn’t even use idioms!”

Wei Wei: “We can’t presume too much from you. Four characters together counts as an idiom… …”

Yu Gong; “Actually, this thing, idiom, has become a psychological trauma since my childhood.”

Ho Zi Jiu: “How is psychological trauma different from a perverted mental mind?”

Yu Gong ignored him and hurtfully narrated: “Does everybody know that idiom “Foolish Man Moving the mountain”, it’s about an old man leading his entire family to dig every single day … ….”

Wei Wei hurried stopped him from going over basic elementary school education: “We know, no need to explain.”

Yu Gong: “Oh, good thing you know. You know I’m called Yu Ban Shan, so I kept saying the idiom as Yu Gong Ban Shan. It was due to that I got punished by the Chinese teach many times (flames of fury)”

Hou Zi Jiu: “… … Why is your trauma even more simpler than me releasing a harmful gas.”[5]

Mo Zha Ta; “… … So dumbness starts from childhood.”

Wei Wei: “I’m generous, I won’t say anything … …”

Yu Gong very pathetically went to the corner to grow mushrooms.

Mo Zha Ta didn’t give up and kept questioning Wei Wei: “Sansao, you’re really trusting laosan? Shanghai is such a world of sensual pleasure, the drinking parties are like waves in the sea.”

Wei Wei: “Didn’t he go to update Feng Teng’s software systems?”

Mo Zha Ta was shocked: “Sansao you know!”

Of course she knew.

Da Shen’s airplane was eight thirty. He actually managed to take her out at seven for breakfast. In passing, he reported his itinerary and the length of his trip.

And then he had unhurriedly left.

Sanso, you only know the first, but not the second. He doesn’t need to go there physically to update.” Hou Zi Jiu said: “Apparently Feng Teng’s CEO is helping laosan get a big client, so he had temporarily leave.”

Yu Gong was revived: “Hehe, if he gets this client, laosan’s would have his laopoben.”[6]

Mo Zha Ta cooperated with him, pretending to be very surprised: “You need this much for a laopoben?!”

Yu Gong added: “He wanted to marry the faculty beauty. It’s a faculty beauty.”

Wei Wei wanted to grind her teeth. But facing “not Da Shen” people’s taunts, Wei Wei hadn’t lost before. She sent a smiley face and said: “No two ways about it, Da Shen doesn’t have ambitions, doesn’t want to marry a rich woman.”

Yu Gong: “. . . . .”

A minute later, far away at a drinking engagement, a certain somebody’s cellphone received another complaint: “Your wife is bullying me.”

Imperceptibly putting the phone back into the pocket, Xiao Na’s mouth was relaxed.

It looked like, a certain someone, even when he wasn’t there, was living pretty happily.

But, far away at B City, a certain happy somebody very quickly became a tragic somebody. It started with Er Xi letting: “Oh my god, Wei Wei, get on the university forums.”

    1. I wonder if he wanted his friends to send updates on his girlfriend or if they did it of their own initiative. He probably misses Wei Wei too.

  1. Thank you for the update. I’m excited what they saw in the university forums.When will xiao nai and weiwei first happen?hehehe

  2. Muhahaha Wei Wei can’t be bullied~
    Hmm so what is on the forum? Urgh such an cliffhanger T-T
    what a suiting name for our cute meiren shixiong?

    what’s going to happen???? T_____T
    pls pls pls plsssss u can’t leave us hanging like that
    (I’m going to google translate. This is a threat.)
    no i’m kidding
    but i can’t stand this mystery T_T

  4. Atta girl, give it what you’ve got. I love how Wei Wei can get along with all Nai He’s friends and him giving her all the 411 before leaving. Perfect couple, I tell ya!

      1. It’s a shorthand term for information, i.e. his itinerary, length of time he’ll be away, etc. like a wonderful fujun he is (did I use the right word? LOL)

  5. LOL.. That was so funny.. I love their interactions with each other. and the tattle tail…
    Thanks again for another fantastic chapter. I love this book. I read over and over every chapter multiple times and still ‘get a kick out of it’..

  6. Xiao Nai’s friends are so immaturely entertaining. Wei Wei refusing to be outsmarted. So compatible together. Monday come sooner.

  7. Thank you, thank you! I wish I understand Chinese idioms! But even if I knew Chinese, I’ll probably be like Yu Gong, not knowing how to use them properly.

    Wei Wei is so good at bullying Yu Gong and the others, but can never win against Xiao Nai’s teasing. She’s like “one of the guys”, but she’s a definite girl to Xiao Nai. Love all of their relationships.

    I’m also curious what’s on the university forum..

  8. I find it so sweet that Wei Wei and Xiao Nai trust each other enough to not become suspicious when Xiao Nai’s friends try to jokingly stir up trouble about Xiao Nai being surrounded by beauties in Shanghai and about Wei Wei flirting with Mo Zha Ta. If it were Shen Shui and Yao Yao, I bet they would be jealous immediately, since I suspect that relationship is not very stable, even though they have technically dated for a longer period than Xiao Nai and Wei Wei have. In fact, I bet during the fight against the Netherworld Crone, Yao Yao suddenly abandoned Zhen Shui to heal Xiao Nai because she was jealous that Zhen Shui and Wei Wei still seemed to have some sort of unspoken connection with each other when Zhen Shui immediately understood Wei Wei’s intentions even though she didn’t get a chance to complete her sentence. It’s like having your boyfriend completing his ex-girlfriend’s sentence in front of you. 😛

    I love the funny side characters in this story – Xiao Nai and Wei Wei’s dorm mates and Lei Shen Ni Ni. Ni Ni is becoming quite a hilarious friend, with her foot-in-the-mouth syndrome. Haha. Does she ever make an appearance and meet Wei Wei in real life? I think those two would become great friends if they did.

    1. What I like is that before that incident occured, Xiao Nai said “main” and Wei Wei knew exactly what he meant. They have the same connection and their relationship is shorter than the length of time Wei Wei spend with Zhen Shui Wu Xiang. I’m pretty convinced now that Xiao Yu Yao Yao did it out of spite and jealousy. I would like to think that Wei Wei or Xiao Nai might be more rational if they ever had to face this situation but since they are each other’s first … … (and last) that won’t ever occur. There are lots of very broken hearts over Xiao Nai and Wei Wei but nothing like “marriage” or an actual relationship.

      We never get to see Wei Wei meet the actual Lei Shen Ni Ni. Gu Man hasn’t written anything about it. The two are great friends already without even meeting in real life.

      1. I think Wei Wei and Xiao Nai trust each other even though their relationship is a shorter length so far than Zhen Shui and Yao Yao’s because they are both already comfortable and secure about their own selves. Only insecure people will suspect their spouses or significant others of cheating on them.

        I wonder whether Yao Yao is jealous that Zhen Shui still has a connection with Wei Wei or if she envies Wei Wei’s relationship with Yi Xiao Nai He (and wants to steal him because she believes she is much prettier than Wei Wei?)? After all, Yi Xiao Nai He doesn’t say a lot, but his protective actions toward Lu Wei Wei Wei in the game speak much louder than useless words of love, and that alone is enough to make any woman fall in love with him.

      2. I’m going to pretend that Xiao Yu Yao Yao is very materialistic at this point and say she wasn’t trying to steal Nai He because the costs outweigh the benefits. First, there’s no indication that Nai He is a rich person. He earned his rank and wealth inside the game without paying to play. Zhen Shui Wu Xiang, on the other hand, is a confirmed rich player with actual money. Also, she already has Zhen Shui in real life. It’s not worth it to dump him for a chance at somebody who might just be not as rich and handsome and well educated (like Nai He, who in some other alternate universe could have been poor and ugly looking :P)

        I would agree on your point about insecurity and add that trust is also a major component. Zhen Shui has an established history of dumping a girl for another prettier one. Xiao Yu Yao Yao probably is always afraid that it will be her fate. On the other hand, Xiao Nai took the initiative in getting into a relationship and Wei Wei knows he “picked” her (I don’t think he actually ever considered anybody in a romantic way before Wei Wei) out of all the other girls out there. She has confidence in him and trust him which makes the relationship different.

  9. Thank you for the updates…..its great to know that new chapters can be expected daily. I am already worrying when the story ends…..
    i think Xiao Nai’s friends are happy that he finally has a girlfriend. They know that he will miss Wei Wei….so they are trying to be helpful by updating him about Wei Wei from time to time….

  10. i like weiwei n xiao nai’s friends.. they are really close.
    and xiao nai’s friends seems to be whining to xiao nai too much.. but it’s cute.

    and guman write really well for the boy’s dialogues. from my own experience, im having difficulties in writing boy’s dialogues coz i don’t know how they speak..

  11. I can’t decide if I love Da Shen or his friends more!!!! They are so fabulous *fangirls and turns into a bottle of milk*

  12. Thanks a lot!
    Yes! She finally met him! So funny! Ahaha! The team’s interactions are really hilarious!
