Even though they had become husband and wife, Wei Wei regarded the relationship between Nai He and her in this way.
Da Shen and the attendant. = =
Of course, Nai He was the Da Shen and she was the attendant. When fighting, she was the first, when there was an errand, she was also the first … … and as to why Wei Wei was doing so, it was for those pieces of equipment.
Wei Wei was embarrassed to take other people’s stuff without paying >o<, so she decided to pay it back by working it off!
The days after the wedding were not that much different. Wei Wei still spent the majority of the time with Yu Gong and the others on quests and levelling up, but there were occasional times when she and Nai He left the team to live a two-person world.
And the so-called two-person world? In reality, it was doing couple quests.
In [Dreams of Jianghu], after the wedding, there were three additional techniques for the married couple team. If both partners were in battle at the same time, the three techniques would have a rate of automatic attack, and the progression of those attacks depended primarily on the intimacy level between the couple. So other than the speechless bridal nights, the fastest way of increasing the intimacy level was to do couple quests.
When players reached level 30, they could get married. So for the “elderly marriage” team of Wei Wei and Yi Xiao Nai He, the earlier quests were simple, like how chopping lettuce was simple. So for all the fights, Nai He did not need to even step on the battlefield, Wei Wei could do it all by herself.
Thus a very frequent scene that occurred was this: a red-clothed female warrior at the front hacking and slicing, and a white-clothed musician sitting under a willow or near a stream as he idly played the zither.
Nevertheless, the scene on the surface still looked very fantastically romantic.
This day, Wei Wei and Nai He were together doing a quest. Yu Gong Pa Shan and Hou Zi Jiu were also free and bored so they decided to forcibly attach themselves. As a result, they saw Wei Wei engage in all the battles. This was a contrast to Nai He strolling along and looking at scenery before occasionally healing Wei Wei. The pair couldn’t help but feel resentment on behalf of Wei Wei and accused Nai He: “You are too shameless, to hide behind Saozi’s back.”
Nai He didn’t have a hint of shame and sent a sighing face, replying: “When one has eaten much soft rice, one gradually gets used to it.” After he finished, he added, for fear of not expressing himself fully, “You guys, who have no furen to protect you, cannot understand.”
Yu Gong Pa Shang and Hou Zi Jiu were provoked and furiously teamed up to PK together against Nai He as a result. Sadly, the two of them still lost two-on-one. They decided to lie on the ground playing dead rather than accept their defeat. Wei Wei finished killing monsters and returned to Nai He’s side, absentmindedly walking over their “corpses” – –
Yu Gong Pa Shan immediately started wailing: “Saozi not feeling grateful is one thing, but to step on us. We have died in vain.”
Hou Zi Jiu: As expected, the husband and wife are of one heart. It’s true that others should not involve themselves in family affairs.
Wei Wei hexian. Those two had obviously been bullied by Nai He again. Knowing that they could not win against him, they teased her instead. When these people started going, there was no end to it. Since the quest for the day had been completed, Wei Wei hurriedly said, “I’m going to pick herbs.”
She abandoned Nai He and left in a flash.
In the game, picking herbs was very boring. It was simply just clicking at specific spots and standing around like an idiot waiting for the computer to finish. Wei Wei started gathering and took out another Level Six mock exam. Wei Wei had registered for one this year. Some of the people in the dorm took the test last year, but at the time, Wei Wei had no confidence in getting distinction, so she didn’t take it then.
After a while, her friend list started flashing. When she clicked, it was Nai He’s message. “Come to the west side of the Lake at Heavenly Mountains.”
Wei Wei rapidly ran over.
The Lake at Heavenly Mountains was one of the hardest landscapes at the moment. The monsters were very strong there so not many players went there. Wei Wei found Yi Xiao Nai He standing beside the lake. Next to him, there was another male player, but on his body, there were green sparks which usually implied a “Full Body Paralysis Curse”.
A Full Body Paralysis Curse was a very high level and difficult curse. If a person was hit, escape was not even possible, and the player had to stand there taking hits until the time had passed. Nai He’s divine-level pet had the technique and when she walked over, Nai He unexpectedly said: “I’m using my pet to keep him still, you can slowly chop him.”
Wei Wei was slightly confused. Chopping, she understood, but “Slowly?”
“Uh-huh, change to your worst weapon. Chop slowly, bit by bit.”
Bit by bit … … did Da Shen have some grieviance with this person? Wei Wei looked at the player’s ID. “Mo Dao Shi Xue” It seemed a bit familiar.
By this time, Mo Dao Shi Xue started swearing: “Kao, Yi Xiao Nai He, didn’t I just call you picking up leftovers? If you have balls, just kill me. What sort of man are you calling your woman to play me?”
Wei Wei finally remembered why this person’s ID was so familiar. He was the person who had been mocking Yi Xiao Nai He on the wedding day in the World Channel for picking up Zhen Shui Wu Xian’s leftovers. At the time, she had noted down his ID to cut him up each time they met, but she had been playing too happily recently and forgotten.
She didn’t think … …
Wei Wei looked at Yi Xiao Nai He. He was standing elegantly in his white attire like a being from out of this world. She had thought that he wouldn’t have noticed. He didn’t just notice, but remembered it this deeply. And before this, he hadn’t even mentioned it to her, as though it hadn’t occurred … …
Wei Wei strengthened her conviction to never get on Da Shen’s bad side as she started to flip through her bag as she thought about it.
Mo Dao Shi Xue saw that Wei Wei hadn’t moved for a long time and couldn’t help but sprout the hope that, as a woman, she was soft-hearted and wouldn’t do much to him. Unexpectedly, a while later, a sentence sprouted above her head: Haha, found it. So lucky I didn’t throw out my beginner weapons!
Mo Dao Shi Xue was so angry he could faint and watched helplessly as the female warrior equipped a dull knife and started chopping. On top of his head, a bright red spiral of damage points rose —“1”.
With his several thousand points of health, he was going to get chopped a few thousand times.
Wei Wei pressed automatic and watched happily, as in the game, the red-clothed female warrior started chopping right, chopping left, chopping up and chopping down. Mo Dao Shi Xue was relentlessly swearing, the general gist was for Yi Xiao Nai He to give him a quick and painless death.
“My mouth is terrible so if you kill me once, I’ll admit it. But give it to me fast!”
Yi Xiao Nai He slowly replied, “Don’t worry, you won’t die. When your health is running out, I’ll help heal you.”
Wei Wei thought it was a bit strange. If Mo Dao wanted to die so much, then he could just go offline. In battle, when players went offline, the system would judge according to the situation to decide whether to escape or die. Mo Dao wasn’t afraid of death, so why would he stay to let them chop him?
Wei Wei messaged Nai He. “Did he go dumb from the anger? Why doesn’t he go offline?”
Very quickly, Nai He sent a message over: “He’s doing a serial quest.”
Wei Wei was completely consumed by laughter.
Da Shen, you are really, really terrifying! Too cunning and devious.
Serial quests were the most difficult and sadistic type of quest in [Dreams of Jianghu.] The torturous nature came from the fact that, no matter how many parts of the quest you had completed, as long as you had not finished the last part, no experience would be given. If you completed the whole series, the experience and rewards were extremely bountiful. Additionally, players could not die or go offline during the serial quest, or they had to start from the beginning. When it was first introduced, it was almost impossible to reach the end. The response from the players were so fierce, the system changed it so that, according to the difficulty, players could die during the quest one to three times before failing. Even with the changes, they still could not go offline, and had to complete the quest in one session.
Wei Wei had done many serial quests before and thought back for a moment. At the Lakes of Heavenly Mountain, there was only the most difficult serial quest of them all, 99 different parts to be finished in one epically long session. If she remembered it correctly, the Lakes were the very last part … …
