Qian Xiu subconsciously looked at the surrounding environment… It turned out that he had already walked to the edge of the lake without knowing it. He was only planning to find a place where no one was around to stay.
This quiet environment felt good.
Maybe because this account was only at level four, the player was just like a little monster to Qian Xiu. Even if it attacked Qian Xiu dozens of times, it could not break Qian Xiu’s defensive equipment. Qian Xiu suddenly asked, “Why are you digging for earthworms?”
LQ said, “For fishing, fishing naturally requires bait, right?”
Qian Xiu was taken aback. Such an answer was normal, but he suddenly felt that he asked a very redundant question, “Are you planning to practice the lifestyle class?”
LQ stood up and said, “I don’t have this plan for the time being. It’s just for a mission. I heard that this golden earthworm is needed. I don’t play for a long time each time, so I didn’t even finish a mission. Moreover, I don’t know how long I can play this game.”
Qian Xiu frowned, “Are you going to catch the Golden Carp King?”
“Yes, is there a problem?”
Qian Xiu said with resignation, “You’re a lucky guy. Many people who want to do this mission couldn’t find it. On the contrary, you, a person who doesn’t play very much, got this task. In the official announcement of this Golden Carp King mission, they said that only one would randomly appear among all servers, and the rewards will also be uniquely limited. In the future, the prize pool might not appear again… Aren’t you lucky?”
LQ said, “It turns out to be like this, no wonder it’s so hard to do. It seems that I got it, it’s a waste.”
Qian Xiu shook his head and said, “It’s more than a waste; it’s a reckless waste of resources.”
Server: Player LQ proposed you form a temporary team and share the mission “Golden Carp King.” Do you accept it?
Qian Xiu was surprised, “What are you doing?”
LQ said, “I already said that I might not play for long. Since I got such a mission, it will naturally be wasted. You said that many players want it, it includes you too, right? I’m here purely to enjoy the fun of doing missions and pass the time. Rewards and others are useless to me… What about this? You help me catch the earthworms, we complete it together, and the rewards will go to you?”
Qian Xiu had an instinctive conflict towards this kindness… He didn’t believe that there were such good things.
He shook his head and said, “No need, the mission is yours, and the reward is naturally yours too. I won’t take it.”
LQ didn’t force it, but just nodded and canceled the temporary invitation… Qian Xiu felt a weird feeling very quickly.
Qian Xiu felt a big distance between himself and this guy… even further than the distance between the screen and this world.
LQ walked towards Qian Xiu at this time.
Except for Xiao Bao, Qian Xiu would subconsciously reject other people’s approaches. He took two steps back quickly, always keeping a certain distance from others.
But the fishing mage didn’t say anything, just squatted down where Qian Xiu was standing before and continued to dig the dirt on the ground with a shovel, looking very happy.
“En, there is one here.”
An earthworm with a faint golden light came out of the excavated soil. Then, it was sent into the basket. After LQ shook the basket with both hands, he walked directly towards the small wooden boardwalk extending out by the lake.
Taking out the fishing rod, he reached and grabbed the golden earthworm in the basket, pin it on the fishing hook, threw it out, and sat quietly at the end of the bridge.
Qian Xiu discovered that something was wrong at this time…
Many of this mage’s movements looked very natural as if there were no unnecessary restrictions.
Even though he didn’t have many expressions, he had some subtle body movements, just like Xiao Bao. Such subtle and vivid body movements would not appear in front of him.
Could this level 4 mage also be…
Qian Xiu subconsciously pressed his hand on the handle of his sword and squeezed it tightly, but quickly relaxed again.
Last time, it was only because that guy’s behavior completely crossed his moral bottom line, so he could not help but take action in anger… This guy was just fishing and didn’t do anything at all.
He had no reason to attack the other person, even if he was the same as himself.
Besides, PK was not allowed in this place. This was a completely safe zone.
– I might not play this game for too long
Thinking of the other party saying this, Qian Xiu secretly thought. Probably because there is also a specific limitation of death, he will disappear, right after exceeding it.
So, if I have this kind of consideration, could this guy also consider the same question… After all, if he is the same as me, he should also have noticed my body movements.
Qian Xiu frowned. Apart from the guy who was killed last time, he never encountered anything like that again. Of course, it had a lot to do with trying to avoid others and hide as much as possible.
Qian Xiu walked to the small bridge, came to the little mage’s side, and stood and looked at the small lake. It seemed that he could calm down in an instant here. The water vapor gathered in the middle of the small lake looked hazy. Qian Xiu subconsciously exhaled a stale breath, took out a bottle of wine, and sat down on the spot.
The buoy in the lake sank a bit and made ripples. The little mage pulled up the fishing rod and saw that the fish hook’s bait had disappeared. A fish was biting on it, but it was not the Golden Carp King needed to be caught.
Qian Xiu just looked at it and noticed that the little mage smiled, with no sense of loss. He hooked the bait again and threw it out again.
Qian Xiu said coldly, “There are always fish willing to be caught. Since I am here, am I the one who is hooked?”
LQ looked back, “I don’t catch people. I catch fish.”
Qian Xiu shook his head and said, “If you can’t catch something like this, they won’t get caught if it’s not voluntary.”
LQ said, “Isn’t it said that the Carp King likes to eat this kind of earthworm? If it likes it, it will naturally get caught.”
Qian Xiu still shook his head and said, “But it is also quite smart. If it knows that there is danger, it is cautious enough to suppress this urge to eat. Besides, under the lake, it has too many choices. There is no need to put itself in danger for the sake of temptation.”
LQ smiled and continued to look at the unmoving lake, “I have to try. After all, this is the latest information I have found so far.”
Qian Xiu took a sip, then lay down and looked at the sky, “No moths would fly to the fire.”
LQ said, “So how did this idiom come from?”
Qian Xiu turned around, rested his arm, closed his eyes, and said indifferently, “Who knows… or, in fact, no one has tried it, so they thought about it.”
LQ said, “En… but I still want to try. Otherwise, the effort to catch the earthworms will be wasted.”
Qian Xiu said calmly, “It’s up to you. Anyway, only you will be disappointed. It has nothing to do with me.”
Quietly, Qian Xiu was a little tired and seemed to forget everything.
The mage, LQ, ran out of the last bait, but still didn’t catch the Golden Carp King, so he smiled, “I’ll come back tomorrow.”
Looking at Qian Xiu, he should be asleep.
The little mage also carried the basket and left slowly.
Maybe it was a little cold. Even when he was asleep, Qian Xiu instinctively wrapped his body.
He had a dream, in which he incarnated as a moth, flying around the fire, but not going towards it.
