For Qian Xiu, he had now lost direct access to information externally. For example, he could not read posts on various strategies and gossip on the forum like ordinary players. Worse still, he had no idea what was happening to the world outside the game.
Of course, he had reached a stage whereby he could ignore whatever happened in society.
But, there were exceptions. The sudden death of the player in the game. Also, the number of people who had gained entry into Jade Fantasy aside from him.
The ability of the ‘God King’… was too terrifying.
He needed a channel that allowed him to obtain information… Xiao Bao might not be the most suitable person, but he was the first guy to bring this information to Qian Xiu.
Although Qian Xiu did not like to communicate with people much or even preferred not to interact at all, Xiao Bao would probably blabber everything out even if he did not ask much. It was all due to Xiao Bao’s friendly and chatty character.
However, Qian Xiu did not expect… Things did not go as expected. At nine o’clock in the morning, he saw Xiao Bao online. So, he took the initiative and asked if the other party was there.
“Oh… boss. Wait a minute.”
Two hours later, Xiao Bao was still standing dumbfoundedly in the same place, remaining motionless.
Qian Xiu frowned and asked for the second time.
After half an hour, Xiao Bao finally responded, “I’m sorry, boss. I just left to deal with some matter. Do you have anything to ask me? Wait…wait for a while, I am busy!”
Three hours later, Xiao Bao finally responded, “Boss? I’m back. So, what was the matter that you were looking for me for?”
“When are you…when are you free?”
“It’s hard to say. I will be busy when something happens. Recently, the department is short of staff!”
“When you get off from work, find me.” Qian Xiu replied as he finally had enough of waiting.
This seemed to be a ridiculous feeling to him… In the past, others were the ones looking for him and even humbled their stance to cooperate with him. But, he did not expect that one day he would be the one waiting for a guy.
Furthermore, he was waiting for an inexperienced noob.
Finally, at about eight o’clock in the evening, Xiao Bao managed to get some time to be online – or so he claimed.
“Is it enough?” Qian Xiu stopped his hand movements, looked at the monster corpses all over the floor, and turned to look at Xiao Bao.
“Enough! Awesome! You managed to clear up all the missions I accumulated in one hour! You are indeed the man!” Xiao Bao was quite happy. “But, boss, why would you help me?”
Qian Xiu raised his head and took a sip of the wine, and said calmly, “Just treat me like I’m bored… Are you listening?”
Xiao Bao said, “Haha, I’m sorry. I just watched some videos and did not pay attention. Hey, may I suggest something? Why don’t you use the voice message? Typing words is pretty slow.”
“I don’t like to use voice messages.”
Xiao Bao said, “Maybe you are a female boss in menswear? Boss, you must have a shot in your chest!”
At this time, Qian Xiu pretended that he did not hear anything and suddenly said, “Can you look at the forum now?”
“Ah, yes. What’s the matter?”
“Show me the strategy post of Sleeping Pagoda.”
Xiao Bao was taken aback for a moment, “Boss… can’t you do it yourself?”
“I don’t like to be out of the game interface. You read and tell me. I’ll listen.” Qian Xiu looked at Xiao Bao and said. “I didn’t clear your missions for nothing. Just treat this as your way of thanking me.”
Xiao Bao thought for a while and said, “Boss, at your level, you should be able to directly launch a strong assault at the Sleeping Pagoda, right? Why do you need to look at the strategy guide?”
Qian Xiu said, “I haven’t done the main quest yet, and I am too lazy to do so. Now that I need to do it, I might as well follow the guide to save time.”
Xiao Bao said again, “Okay, I didn’t do it anyway. While I am explaining, let’s go in and clear the quests too. Otherwise, I will be upset, and I feel like an underling. It doesn’t matter how we work together. You do the manpower. I look at the guide… Is it impossible for you to use the voice message?”
“No voice message. I picked up the mission. I will be waiting for you in Sleeping Pagoda.” Qian Xiu said and left immediately.
Xiao Bao shook his head and muttered, “This guy won’t happen to be a prodigal child, right…? Ordering people around.”
But, for Xiao Bao, no matter who the other party was. He would not mind as long as both parties could get what they need through their cooperation.
He would not flatter anyone, but he would not be dismissal. Although his salary could afford him to top up character slightly, he was not an avid fan of in-game purchases. So, this kind of cooperation with mutual benefit was naturally the best choice. It was rare for him to cooperate with a boss, but the boss’s temperament was a bit aloof.
“When compared to Section Chief Qin, it’s a far cry…”
Xiao Bao shook his head. When it came to aloofness, he had yet to find anyone in the whole bureau who could be compared to the legend who took a day off immediately after taking leave and disappeared for so long without any news. Unexpectedly, even the bureau chief did not know anything about the legend’s absence.
Probably, he was recruited because he was better at dealing with this type of employee?
While thinking about this question, Xiao Bao accepted the mission.
Soon after, on the first floor of the Sleeping Pagoda.
“Walk here. There is a level twenty-one elite on the front door, as well as three dungeon monsters. Pay attention to the poisonous environment.”
Qian Xiu nodded and asked Xiao Bao to wait outside the door. After a while, he walked out and obtained the key to the room. Then, he looked at Xiao Bao and said calmly, “What’s next?”
“Well… this way. The guide says this way is faster here.” While talking, Xiao Bao threw a status supplement to Qian Xiu.
Qian Xiu suddenly said, “You said yesterday that a few people died from playing games. Didn’t you say it was a rumor?”
Xiao Bao said, “Boss, where did you hear that this is a rumor? Didn’t the news already report this?”
Qian Xiu said, “Really? How do you know that someone in the newspaper does not simply write it?”
Xiao Bao said, “It’s probably because it has something to do with my work. The news is relatively accurate in this regard. But, speaking of which. The Jade Fantasy is so powerful that someone could die just from playing it.”
Qian Xiu was startled…Sure enough, he made the right choice choosing Xiao Bao. This guy liked to talk and unknowingly revealed something he wanted to know.
“You mean. The people who were dead were all playing this game?”
“Ah, the forum also mentioned it, but the post is soon deleted,” said Xiao Bao casually. “Anyway, some people die from playing games every once in a while. Most of them were addicted to the game and didn’t have a good rest. Otherwise, it could be the problem of a sudden heart attack. It’s nothing unusual about the problem. Besides, a lot of people who had played this game repetitively had problems with their liver… Hehe.”
“Are these dead guys all from the same place?”
“Isn’t it? I remember one seems to be from somewhere in the north, and one from a special zone in the southern, and then… I forgot.” Xiao Bao suddenly shouted, “Oh, here it is! Get the key that is inside, and you can go up to the second floor.”
Qian Xiu did not say anything, pushed the door directly, and went in.
But, this time Xiao Bao walked in with him. Qian Xiu frowned and looked at him, “Just wait outside.”
Xiao Bao said, “It’s so boring. I’m also playing the game. Things that are obtained without any effort won’t last for a long time. Besides, if we keep playing like this, it always feels like you are playing the game with two accounts. I might as well play other games!”
With that said, Xiao Bao walked passed Qian Xiu and threw a Flash Missile at the monsters rushing towards him. One of the two limited attack skills of the priest. The damage output is relatively low.
“Haha! Xiao Bao, the milk god, is also a skilled player!”
Xiao Bao’s character was seen running around in the room, wretchedly hitting and running away from the monster.
Qian Xiu looked at this guy motionlessly… He always felt that this guy was pleased.
“Boss! Don’t be distracted. I can’t hold it! Help!!”
– Blue Sky! Don’t be distracted! Come and help me!
Qian Xiu raised the sword subconsciously, and the room was instantly filled with the brilliance of the knight’s sword.
When a gloomy ball of light slowly separated from the screen made of white cards and floated in front of Boss Luo, Tai Yinzi beside him, widened his eyes.
Because he did not expect… that in just over a week, this would be the seventh soul.
In other words, his business was improved with almost one soul a day!
“Lord, master!! There, there is another response! Mail… mail!” Tai Yinzi hardly believed what he just witnessed with his own eyes. He felt that his heart seemed to be pounding.
Because these… were counted in his performance!
“Tai Yinzi, it seems you are going to make a fortune this time.”
The maid suddenly chuckled beside Tai Yinzi, “At this rate, you can save your money for a little vacation in no time. Well, maybe you should give some mini rewards? Master, what do you think?”
Fuck…reward? Is the maid, You Ye, in front of me a fake?
“Lord, master, I…” Tai Yinzi looked at Luo Qiu excitedly.
“Well, this sales channel is perfect.” Luo Qiu nodded. “Although the quality is average, the pros of this method is the continuous sales. Furthermore, providing the product unidirectionally completely saves us from the time to negotiate with the customers…Tai Yinzi, do you want any rewards?”
Could this be my come back?!
“Well, as long as the request is appropriate.” Luo Qiu nodded with a smile on his face. “Or, as You Ye said, you can also wait for a short vacation, Um…or even cancel out the time of labor for once. ”
Tai Yinzi swallowed his saliva at this time but quickly forced himself to calm down. You can’t be excited so quickly! You must be patient!
Otherwise, it will be terrible if I give the impression of being arrogant and egotistical to my owner…
Besides, he always felt that there might be some traps hidden within it!
“I do not need any reward!” Tai Yinzi raised his head and said with a righteous expression. “As an emissary of the master, I only want to do my part for my owner to find more sources of income! With such a benevolent master, we as his followers will only become better!”
“Such a high level of realization, Tai Yinzi.” The maid squinted her eyes. “In that case, Tai Yinzi, it’s better for you to be the processor of this server.”
“No problem! This is of course…” Tai Yinzi patted his chest subconsciously, and then widened his mouth, “What? Server processor?”
“Yes, a simple black card can no longer support the current algorithm, and the increase in the number will take up too much space. So, a more advanced processor is naturally the best choice.”
The maid smiled and said, “You are the black soul messenger and this plan’s conceiver. It would be best if you do it…Tai Yinzi, are you not willing to do so?”
