Chapter 7 “The Xiao Yu Family”

Chapter Seven The Xiao Yu Family

Remembering the tragedy that had been her own experience with this serial quest, Wei Wei started to feel a hint of sympathy for him. But sympathy was just sympathy, this person was really annoying. She would chop him up for a while first. Since it was automatic, her hand wouldn’t even get sore.

So Wei Wei started to drink some tea and chatted idly with Nai He. Nai He seemed to be doing other things as his replies were not very quick. Wei Wei decided to start doing problems again.

After another paragraph of reading comprehension was finished, she raised her head and saw that three other female players had appeared beside the lake. The IDs showed that they were Xiao Yu Qing Qing,[1] Xiao Yu Fei Fei[2] and Xiao Yu Mian Mian.[3]

The Xiao Yu Family?

What were they doing here?

Xiao Yu Qing Qing was speaking: “Hey, why aren’t you paying attention?”

Wei Wei’s brow creased and she opened the record of the previous chat (In the game, the chat record would record down the conversations of all players in the immediate vicinity.)

In Front [Xiao Yu Qing Qing]: Wow, Yi Xiao Nai He.

In Front [Xiao Yu Mian Main]: That woman’s there too. Too mean, bullying lower levels.

In Front [Xiao Yu Fei Fei]: Yeah, and she’s purposefully tormenting him, killing him point by point.

In Front [Xiao Yu Mian Mian]: Ah, it’s Mo Dao Shi Xue.

In Front [Xiao Yu Qing Qing]: You know him?

In Front [Xiao Yu Mian Mian]: He’s the one that gave me the tracking slippers and helped me on some quests.

In Front [Xiao Yu Qing Qing]: Should we go help?

In Front [Xiao Yu Fei Fei]: Can we win against them?

In Front [Xiao Yu Qing Qing]: We’ll reason it.

In Front [Xiao Yu Qing Qing]: Hey, Yi Xiao Nai He, (smiley face) you are a high level player, high high level (smiling emoticon), bullying lower levels. What kind of chivalrous hero are you?

In Front [Xiao Yu Mian Mian]: Yeah, and two against one.

In Front [Xiao Yu Qing Qing]: Hey (angry emoticon), why aren’t you replying?

All the messages were directed to Yi Xiao Nai He who was idling on one side and disregarded Wei Wei who was still chopping away. Nai He was either absent or did not want to reply. Wei Wei thought their “help” was a bit strange, but still replied, “We are solving personal issues. Bystanders, please continue onwards.”

Xiao Yu Mian Mian: “What personal issues require tormenting somebody, it’s just a game.”

Wei Wei started getting irritated and wanted to reword strongly. Nai He said, “Too noisy, if you don’t want to die, disappear immediately.”

At the same time, Wei Wei received a personal message from him. “I left earlier, you keep going, I’ll solve this.”

… …

Wei Wei sweated.

Da Shen, are you sure you are solving the issue and not making it worse? = =

As expected, Xiao Yu Qing Qing and the others exploded. In reality, even though the excuse they used was that they couldn’t see injustice done in front of them, they still idolized and had fantasies about Yi Xiao Nai He. But Yi Xiao Nai He’s words destroyed the idolization and fantasies.

Xiao Yu Qing Qing: Hey, you guys are going overboard!

Xiao Yu Mian Mian: Yeah! What’s so special about being number one on the server? Talking so inelegantly to females shows no politeness.

Che, Wei Wei felt disdain. They used “that woman” to call others. Did that show any politeness or elegance? Wei Wei cheerfully retorted: “It’s just a game, don’t be angry.”

Xiao Yu Fei Fei: Does a game mean somebody can swear at others? Does a game mean high level players can bully lower levels? I’m angry now!

Wei Wei speechlessly stared at the sky. The classical double standard. Talking with these kind of people, for somebody who had a decent grasp of rationality and studied science, was a kind of torture.

Wei Wei feared getting in a fight with those kinds of egotistical people who thought they had reason on their side. She simply said: “Jianghu rules. Let’s PK. You four against us two. If you win, you can take him and we won’t seek him out afterwards.”

Yi Xiao Nai He said: You rest, I can take this.

The white-clothed musician stepped forward and stood elegantly in front of the red-robed warrior. Wei Wei thought about Da Shen’s usual fantastical fighting, sent a smiley face and said: “Okay, I’ll watch ^_^”

The Xiao Yu Family didn’t accept the invitation to battle. When Lu Wei Wei Wei had challenged them, they still had a bit of confidence to try, but Yi Xiao Na He’s dismissive estimation of them and his sheer confidence made them hesitate.

A musician, no matter how strong, could he really beat the four of them by himself?

Their avatars didn’t move as they used private messaging to communicate. Mo Dao Shi Xue, who had been steadily silent, had several lines of text pop up over his head: “What PK, what’s going on? Big Sis, why aren’t you chopping anymore? Continue, kao, I went for a shower and you still haven’t finished.”

Xiao Yu Mian Mian: Shi Xue, it’s me.

Mo Dao Shi Xue: Mian Mian, why are you here?

Xiao Yu Mian Mian: I’m helping you.

Mo Dao Shi Xue flipped back the chat record and couldn’t help but get irritated. He was familiar with this Xiao Yu Mian Mian. They had teamed up many times before, but he had never seen her fight any injustice when she saw it before. What was special about him?

If several strong players had come, then settling differences would be easy, but this woman couldn’t do anything and was from the Xiao Yu Family. Mo Dao Shi Xue couldn’t help but remember Xiao Yu Yao Yao. Even though she wasn’t here, anybody that thought about the Xiao Yu Family would think of  Xiao Yu Yao Yao first. Supposedly, Xiao Yu Yao Yao had dumped Yi Xiao Nai He, and then stolen Lu Wei Wei Wei’s husband … …

Kao! He still wanted to play the game, not accidentally get involved in the most highly gossiped about romantic affair of the server. Also, Yi Xiao and Lu Wei was a pair of vengeful lovers who were both sadistic and held grudges. They were not okay to get in a conflict with; nothing good would come out of offending them, especially Yi Xiao Nai He. At noon, he had seen him. At the time, Yi Xiao Nai He had acted as though he didn’t see him, and then at nighttime, he was waiting at the lake … …

Did the other know that he was doing a serial quest, so he purposefully waited at the last part?

That was not possible, the other couldn’t have known.

The more Mo Dao Shi Xue thought, the more cold sweat ran down his back. His first priority was finishing the quest. For that, he had already been online for eight or nine hours already. He couldn’t make any mistakes. Dying once was not a problem since he hadn’t died before. With that thought in mind, he hurriedly said: “That’s okay, some problems should be solved. Beauties shouldn’t have to fight. Hahahaha, you shouldn’t have to fight, I won’t have any honor left”

The women who had been filled with righteous indignation couldn’t believe that the “victim” wasn’t even on their side. For a moment, they were speechless before Xiao Yu Qing Qing snorted and the three left furiously.

Mo Dao Shi Xue said: “Big Sis, you keep on chopping, there’s still two hundred points left. I’m going to do laundry. You’ll probably finish by then.”

Wei Wei couldn’t help but laugh. So all three of them had been multitasking. This person was detestable, but at least had a good sense of humour. It was just that his mouth was too dirty. Wei Wei sheathed her knife. “Whatever, I’m done.”

Wei Wei: Wasting money on electricity and internet, better off gathering herbs >o<

Yi Xiao Nai He: En, let’s go.

In an instant, the two people got on the horse and left. Mo Dao Shi Xue was left alone with nobody chopping him but still shimmered with green light remaining where he was standing … …

In full paralysis … …
