微微一笑很倾城 Chapter Forty Three “Just Keep Swimming, Just Keep Swimming”

I hope this chapter satisfies those of you that were disappointed by Gu Man in the last chapter. I always read the title in Dolores’ voice (Ellen’s) from Finding Nemo.

[1] 鸳鸯浴: literally mandarin duck bath. In a relationship, it implies the partners bathing together naked, while doing … … you know or afterwards.

Chapter Forty Three Just Keep Swimming, Just Keep Swimming

Concerning swimming, Wei Wei’s fantasy was this. Da Shen’s half naked top side, wearing a thin and short swimsuit, his slim body moving to and fro among the blue waves … … and she, would be lying on the chairs beside the pool, drinking a beverage and enjoying the air conditioning, it would be even better if she had a camera … …

But, the reality was ––

Upon arrival to the house, Wei Wei took out his swimsuit from the bag. Xiao Nai took it, his eyebrow lifting.

“Why did you pick this one?”

“Ah?” She just grabbed one without looking. Was there a problem?

“This one was the one my aunt gave me after I won a race, I never wore it.”

“You don’t like it?”

“I don’t really care,” Xiao Nai faintly smiled, “I just didn’t think that Wei Wei liked this style.”

He went to the changing room to put on the swimsuit before coming out. Wei Wei finally knew what style he had been talking about … … what style … …

It was actually very thing and very short … … and very tight … …

Wei Wei went into a daze over the exposed male beauty. When Da Shen said “Why aren’t you changing?” she actually obediently went to change into her new swimsuit.

Thankfully, she had a clear mind by the time she was coming out, grabbing a large towel to cover herself.

Xiao Nai was already comfortably swimming in the pool. Seeing her come out, he swam to the side and held a hand up.

“Come down.”

“No, I don’t know how to swim.” The non-swimmer Wei Wei tightened her grasp on her towel and refused to get in.

“I’ll teach you.”

Wei Wei thought about it but still didn’t have the courage: “… … I think I’ll just sit at the side and wet my feet.”

Xiao Nai fell into silence and put up an expression of not caring, swimming away by himself. Wei Wei’s eyes followed him, seeing him slice through the water like he was born to it, his slim but strong body peeking through the water. Her face felt hot.

She was really becoming more and more lustful due to Da Shen~~~

Wei Wei started to examine herself and stare boldly without taking away her eyes. After a while, she started to feel excited herself so she sat down at the side of the pool and put her foot into the water.

Instantly, a cool feeling came from the foot. All the pores on her body seemed to open up and breathe.

Wei Wei was happily playing with the water by the side and didn’t notice Xiao Nai’s whereabouts. When she found him again, Xiao Nai had already swam to her side, suddenly grabbing her foot and pulled her under.

Wei Wei was unprepared and fell into the pool. She instantly drank a few mouthfuls … … of her own foot bathwater.

And then because she was flailing, she had to be fed air by a certain somebody using his mouth … …

And then because she was afraid of drowning, she grabbed tightly at a certain somebody’s half naked body.

In conclusion … …it was complicated … …

By the time they left, Wei Wei had only learned a little bit about swimming. But her heart and body … … had received huge damage t_t

Even though Xiao Nai had been the champion in the Inter-University Competition, he hadn’t like swimming to the point of practicing everyday. But after today, he seemed to have found his enthusiasm. Since his relative’s house was always empty, every evening he took Wei Wei for a swim for at least two hours.

Wei Wei became fond of swimming but to a certain somebody’s scheme of flirting under the name of teaching, she was resolutely resisting. But even though she had the heart to not follow him, but she didn’t have the strength to refuse, and if she wasn’t careful, she would be seduced into it … …

So an often seen sight in the pool in Da Shen’s relative’s house was a flailing shadow in the middle of the water… …

In one of the struggles to the death, Wei Wei had even said “We haven’t gotten to the point of swimming together like ducks yet.” Think about it, a gigantic pool, just the two of them, it was a duck bath. [1]

But Xiao Nai’s response had been ––

“So Wei Wei actually likes it kinky?”

She couldn’t be as shameless as certain others, so Wei Wei could only resist through accepting it.

So after receiving a call from Die Meng, Wei Wei was pretty happy. If there was a swimming feast every single day, it was really over-eating… …

Die Meng asked: “Wei Wei, do you have free time tomorrow night? Let’s have dinner together.”

“Tomorrow?” Wei Wei thought a bit and agreed, “Okay.”

Wei Wei had answered very quickly. It wasn’t really to avoid going swimming with Da Shen. It was that Die Meng had paid the last time at Pizza Hut and Wei Wei felt she should pay her back.

So on the second day, Wei Wei abandoned a certain someone and took her little wallet to make an appointment along. But standing in front of the restaurant Die Meng had said, looking at that grand decorations, Wei Wei couldn’t help but be a bit apprehensive.

She would be able to have enough to pay, right … …

Oh well, if needed, she’ll call Da Shen to save her.

Wei Wei took out her phone to send a text to Die Meng: “I’m here, where are you?

Die Meng quickly replied: Jiu Ju Xuan

Inside the private room, Die Meng put away her cell phone.

“She’s here.”

Xiao Yu Qing Qing disbelieving asked: “She’s really a beauty? Is she as beautiful as Yao Yao?”

Several minutes earlier, at this Bi Hai Chao Sheng Ge Conflict-solving Summit that had been suggested by Xiao Yu Yao Yao, Die Meng “accidentally” said that she had seen the real Lu Wei Wei Wei and that she was very beautiful.

Most of the people here, including Zhan Tian Xia, the Xiao Yu Family, Zhen Shui Wu Xiang, and some players from B City, knew or had heard of Lu Wei Wei Wei but didn’t believe that Lu Wei Wei Wei was a beauty.

The members of the Xiao Yu family was even more disbelieving and started pushing for Die Meng to send for Lu Wei Wei Wei.

So, Die Meng went outside and pretended to make a call. Actually, to prevent any missteps, she had already confirmed yesterday with Wei Wei.

Die Meng heard Xiao Yu Qing Qing’s question but didn’t immediately answer. She kept everybody in suspense by saying: “You’ll know when she comes.”

Xiao Yu Qing Qing made a “ha” sound and said: “I understand, she definitely isn’t as pretty as Yao Yao. Yao Yao is the First Beauty across all servers.

Xiao Yu Yao Yao was half embarrassed and half irate as she said: “Don’t be this exaggerated. You can’t use me as a standard for all people.”

Xiao Yu Qing Qing teasingly thrust out her tongue and said: “I know, I know, it lowers your value.”

Die Meng looked at Xiao Yu Yao Yao and laughed coldly on the inside.

Laugh, laugh! Let’s see if you can still laugh later.

Why was it that you are worshiped by everyone, why was it that your Xiao Yu Family could dominate the sect that I created? Wasn’t it all dependent on that face and that “the Most Beautiful of the Jianghu” title? Why was it that you could be so happy? Don’t you know how offensive your happiness, don’t you know how fake this so-called “problem solving Summit” was?

If it wasn’t for you, Tian Xia wouldn’t have met Xiao Yu Qing Qing.

Do you know? I hate you.

Your test is coming now.

Can your love pass the test?

It won’t pass!

It had been built on the so-called love stemming from out appearances. The type of male that Zhen Shui Wu Xiang was, would he fall for beauty? In front of that type of that vibrant and devastating beauty?

Also, he had been Lu Wei Wei Wei’s husband. What would be more painful than once having it but accidentally losing it?


If you pass, then, I congratulate the both of you! Truly and whole-heartedly congratulate!

Die Meng drank to the bottom of her cup!

The people chattered happily but their eyes would occasionally glance towards the doorway. After a while, the door opened. Everybody looked over and saw a smiling round face. This was considered beautiful? Xiao Yu Qing Qing wanted to laugh but realized that it was just the waitress.

After her, was a girl walking out from behind the waitress.

The round-faced waitress cheerfully said: “Welcome, this is the place.”

That girl politely turned to look at her. Following her movement, several locks of hair fell down and eye-catchingly fell on her pale and fine shoulders. A relaxed ponytail framed a face beautiful enough that could stop people’s hearts. A pair of eyes clear and bright enough to be stars. A shadow seemed to pass through her gaze, her long eyelashes moved. In the movement of her eyes, it felt like light was streaming though.

Die Meng had met Wei Wei before but this time she was wearing a flower-printed pink V-neck dress with a belted waist. It was enough to shock her for a while. She finally managed to stand up and greet her.

“Wei Wei.”

Her “Wei Wei” instantly woke everybody. All the people had felt that the girl that walked in was extremely beautiful and hadn’t managed to connect her to “Lu Wei Wei Wei.” Now that they had been reminded by Die Meng, they realized that she was Lu Wei Wei Wei.

She was actually Lu Wei Wei Wei?

How could she be Lu Wei Wei Wei!

If she was Lu Wei Wei Wei, then the so called “Most Beautiful of the Jianghu”… …

Everybody looked towards Xiao Yu Yao Yao and simultaneously felt ––

It was too plain.

In front of this type of soul-stealing, mind-shattering beauty, the innocent beauty that Xiao Yu Yao Yao had seemed too plain.

And … …

Her physical body was lacking too much.

In reality, Xiao Yu Yao Yao was very pretty, but everybody was used to her appearance by now so there were no surprise. On the forums there were photos and videos. Meeting the real person, they felt that she wasn’t as attractive as the photos. At least, the skin wasn’t as good as the photos implied. In comparison, it was this Lu Wei Wei Wei with no titles of being beautiful, without any make up whatsoever, that held the gaze and wouldn’t let them move away.

So people started to feel puzzled. If this girl was Lu Wei Wei Wei, then how could Xiao Yu Yao Yao steal Zhen Shui Wu Xiang from her hands?

Everybody mutually glanced at Zhen Shui Wu Xiang.

Males were the ones that understood the most the male’s weakness for beauty. At the beginning, when Zhen Shui Wu Xiang had divorced from Lu Wei Wei Wei in the game and quickly married Xiao Yu Yao Yao, the male players in the sect had thought that, even though his actions were distasteful, they were still envious of him. But looking at Lu Wei Wei Wei now, the male players here all felt that inside Zhen Shui Wu Xiang, that little soul was probably beating his chest and stamping his feet.

Die Meng was constantly checking Xiao Yu Yao Yao and Zhen Shui Wu Xiang’s reactions. She pressed her lips together, satisfied. She said to the waitress: “Server, please add a seat beside me.”

And then she said to Wei Wei: “Wei Wei, come sit here.”

Wei Wei nodded and started waking, her expression normal. But she started to quickly examine the situation in front of her.

When she had received the text earlier, when Die Meng said it was a private room, Wei Wei had already detected a hint. But she had trusted her friend and didn’t think deeper. She didn’t think that she would enter into this kind of situation.

Wei Wei didn’t know the people outside of Die Meng but she had seen Xiao Yu Yao Yao’s face before. Since Xiao Yu Yao Yao was here, then the identities of the other people was obvious.

This was probably the players gathering of Bi Hai Chao Sheng Ge at B City.

She didn’t know why they had called her over.

Wei Wei sat down next to Die Meng and the heart of everybody else seemed to mimic her movement by landing in their original spot. They still felt it was unreal. Xiao Yu Qing Qing rudely asked: “You’re Lu Wei Wei Wei?”

Her voice was thin and sharp. Wei Wei looked at her once and nodded.


Since she had came, it was better to go with the flow. Wei Wei naturally and openly nodded at everybody, “Nice to meet you all, I’m Lu Wei Wei Wei.”

  1. Xiao Yu Qing Qing, that rude bitch! (Pardon the crude language.) Tcha.

    I love this cuz Wei Wei shows them up just by being her awesome, awesome self.

  2. I really hate it when Wei Wei is constantly being put into these kinds of situations bu the people around her, but I know that she can handle herself. Xiao Nai come take Wei Wei away!

  3. a certain somebody’s scheme of flirting under the name of teaching
    – rofl

    i hate yaoyao… take a look.. our weiwei is very very pretty.
    i hate xiaoyu family… serve you right!!! weiwei is extremely beautiful!!

    buaaaahahahahahaha… im very very very satisfied… i hope they will see xiao nai too… and everyone will green in envy for our OTP!!

    1. I hope in the novel the people will find out that Xiao Nai is Nai He (1st place in the game) because in the drama and movie version they think Wei Wei has real bf and virtual husband. Although I guess the novel will follow the same but I’m still wishing!

  4. Man, I was hoping to see more actions from Mr. Slick-Rick XN hahaha (pardon me, but XN’s totally corrupted me…sorry, not, sorry). I don’t really like how DM used WW to show the Xiao Yu family up. That totally was not cool. Hope to see XN is the midst of the actions soon. Thanks for the update.

  5. Ha! I like the naughty and playful side of Da Shen. I don’t blame him since it’s a very healthy response from a very healthy, young, athletic guy. I’m not impressed with Die Meng, though.

  6. Huhuhu.. very slick move XN.. he is not only awesome in game world.. but more dashing in courting his girl… best boyfriend material ever… lol
    Poor wei wei.. she got out from that kind of situation with her friends.. but really .. DM.. playing revenge game to that brat of Xiao Yu Family by using wei wei is very rude and unethical.. but .. on the other i love it that those people are shock to see how beautiful she is… serve you right mr x husband… you can only drool over her…
    Hurry up XN….. come and rescue your queen…

  7. I’m giggling like a lunatic and had to say this swimming, swimming didn’t disappoint. 🙂
    It’s like Wei Wei walked into the lion’s den but I’m not a bit worried knowing how smart our beauty is and her knight will come to rescue her soon.

  8. Thank you…..naughty Gu Man is letting us imagine the scenes in the swimming pool…duck bath…hmmm.
    Let her x hubby drool in front of Yao Yao…serve him right..Can’t wait for Xiao Nai to come n see the reaction of the girls then….

  9. Qing Qing will probably try to bully Wei Wei but no worries, our protagonist is smart and has a knight in shining armor. Die Meng isn’t a very good friend at all; first meeting, she was the only one doing the talking just to dump her feelings. Second meeting, tricked Wei Wei to meet people who have antagonized her just so DM can have her petty revenge.

  10. Finally have the time to properly comment. Guman must have created DM in such way to show off Weiwei to all her 2D acquantances, well well, im not that unhappy about it. Xiao Nai, show up soon. Im excited to see how yao yao and ex hubby will react towards weiwei.

    1. Die Meng is a bit of a plot device but it was’t as if her characterization suddenly changed. We didn’t have that much information at her in the beginning but we did know how important Zhan Tian Xia was to her.

  11. Yeah. Conflict detected!!! Poor yao yao family, zhen shui, tian xia.
    All men just can suck ur thumb while all the girls can cry in the corner
    (Pardon my english, dont know which phrase for it. U know what i mean la) ha3.
    Happy to read this chapter. Tomorrow will be happier.

  12. I can’t wait for tomorrow to come. I’m so excited on what’s going to happen. Is Xiao Nai going to crash the party or…my imagination is in overdrive.

    Xiao Yu family serves you right! Wei Wei deserves the “Most Beautiful in Jianghu” title 🎊 🎉 💃

  13. I think I’d be angrier than her. She’s gone to quite a bit of trouble to guard her privacy and not allow her looks to become a factor in how she’s treated in the game and her so called friend just ruined it for it.

  14. Thanks a lot!
    …that’s not nice. Really not nice. If you want to do that kind of thing,you should at least tell the person involved!

  15. Just keep swimming~
    Just keep swimming~
    I keep saying it like the one in nemo…
    I really really really really really love this novel <3 XD
    Also really sad that it is soo short….

  16. I would feel utterly betrayed if a someone did something like this to me…

  17. Man, I would’ve loved it in the drama if Xiao Nai dragged Wei Wei in the water, unfortunately that didn’t happen but I’m glad to see this in the novel. Still think the kissing in this novel is WAY better than the drama 😀 Although I still have a soft spot for the drama.

  18. I really dislike the scene at this B-City gathering, both in the drama and novel. That Xiao Yu Family is really such a group of ppl, I detest their characters, esp Qingqing. And I’m not feeling a li’l bit sorry for Lu Wei Wei Wei’s ex-husband either. He deserves it. 😒
