“Why are you standing still?!”
Only a roaring sound was heard. As a warrior, “Muscle Kanna” pulled up a giant sword and released the skills to jump in front of Qian Xiu, but “Green Sukumizu” attack was faster than “Muscle Kanna”!
The other three of the team also rushed forward, instantly dispersing the eight demonized soldiers.
Qian Xiu watched a man’s head roll down on the ground; his body was getting cold. Something was roaring in his heart… He suddenly realized that for the team, what they saw was just a 3D ‘monster’ in the game, not the realistic thing that he saw…
He took a deep breath and once again gripped the sword in his hand tightly, forcing himself to attack a demonized soldier.
For him, in this world, he would have to encounter similar incidents and even duel between players afterward… Even if he only killed the characters because of the duel, the person in front of him was obviously someone alive…
If he could not cross this hurdle, how could he continue his career as a knight in the future?
Could he just become a city dweller in Zhongguan City in a futile way?
The knight’s sword finally cut off the head of the last demonized warrior nimbly. This wave of attacks had ended. Qian Xiu felt a slight tremble in his palm. His mood was a little complicated… Entering the game was not as good as he had imagined.
‘War Song Gudazi’: “Whoo! That was a close call! Qian Xiu, what happened to you just now?”
Qian Xiu: “Is there a connection issue?”
‘Green Sukumizu’: “I was just saying. Since you weren’t moving, so you must have disconnected.”
Qian Xiu hesitated for a moment, and subconsciously said, “Just now… thank you.”
‘African ~ Did Not Eat Dog Food Yesterday’: “We’re a team, no need to be so polite. Besides, if you die, it will be more troublesome and a waste of time.”
‘Green Sukumizu’: “Stop wasting time. Our ranking has been exceeded! With our current progress, we will try to see if we can make the top twenty team rankings!”
At this time, white light flew across the sky. At the same time, a huge demon beast in the sky fell directly to the ground.
Everyone looked up and saw that the brightly lighted thing was a pure white unicorn flying. On the unicorn, a female archer could be vaguely seen.
‘Green Sukumizu’: “Fuck! It’s her! ‘Thousand Delicate Feathers ‘! The forum exploded just now, saying that she got the SSR’s Flying Unicorn! I didn’t expect it to be true! This lunatic, how much did she pay?! Except for the gun turret on the city wall, the flying monsters can now be defeated by players!”
‘Tease **** Quickly’: “I feel that she is looking for something… Isn’t she hovering?”
Qian Xiu silently looked at the heroic female archer on the white unicorn, and suddenly lowered his head and said, “Let’s continue killing monsters, don’t waste time.”
“That’s true… Qian Xiu, I’m taunting and luring monsters in, can you help me? This way, Sukumizu can start an upright group attack so that the efficiency will be higher.” said ‘Muscle Kangna’ suddenly.
Qian Xiu nodded. The female archer riding the unicorn seemed to gain nothing and soon flew away again.
After regulating his mood, Qian Xiu slowed down his rhythm for some reason, and finally managed to cooperate with the other five people in the team.
The ranking of this team was also steadily improving. Time passed… until the end of this defense mission.
Then, he returned in triumph and received the reward.
This time, the team’s ranking was pretty good, and in the last effort, they managed to stabilize the seventeenth place in the overall regional ranking. Although it was not comparable to the top ten, it was a great gain for Qian Xiu, who did not have any money in the game.
Also, his ranking was thirty-seventh… This was also a satisfactory result for him, who also had no enhanced equipment before the start.
There was a big crowd swarming the NPC to receive the reward – Too many people who came to receive the reward.
– ‘War Song Gudazi’ requested to be your friend.
– ‘Tease **** Quickly’ requested…
Qian Xiu was taken aback. He received five friend requests at once. He glanced at these people silently and accepted them one by one… I wonder how long the avatars of these five people stay on my list?
Probably… not too long.
‘Green Sukumizu’: “Ah… I’m exhausted, exhausted! But the reward is okay, Gudazi, can we celebrate a little bit? Let’s have a drink?”
‘War Song Gudazi’: “Okay, we really should celebrate, haha! Qian Xiu, if you have any good missions in the future, remember to call us!”
Communication in the game had always been straightforward and direct.
Qian Xiu simply said yes.
He silently watched the characters ‘War Song Gudazi’ and others disappear into a white light… Their so-called celebration was most probably in the outside world.
Qian Xiu silently looked at the emptiness in front of him, then subconsciously glanced around… There seemed to be many people logging in and leaving directly. Some characters stood motionless in place, probably left idle there.
The originally lively reward collection office suddenly became deserted.
Qian Xiu raised his head and glanced at Zhongguan City’s sky. Just after the battle, the setting sun made the city look as red as blood, and the destroyed city walls were slowly recovering. Everything was magical and magnificent to the naked eye.
But instead, he had the illusion that the sky here seemed to be dim, and the streets were also dim… Here, it seemed to be no different from his simple rental house.
Qian Xiu also felt hungry at the same time, and it was the kind of uncomfortable feeling as if his intestines turned. He looked at the sunset in the distance, and muttered to himself, “When did I go out for dinner… the last time?”
In the spacious bedroom, the woman who gradually covered her body in a large dress let out a sigh of relief.
She glanced at the clock next to the table, stood up, and turned off the computer screen, ignoring the piles of flashing friend request prompts on the game’s interface.
The long sweater just covered a tiny part of the woman’s thigh. She was used to acting more freely in the room. She slightly opened the curtain of the floor-to-ceiling glass window, and a hint of orange light shot into the room.
What was reflected on the glass was a young and beautiful appearance.
The phone’s ringtone suddenly rang. The woman frowned, glanced at the name on display, and finally answered it. It was a deep, man’s voice.
“Xiao Rou, I won’t be back for dinner tonight.”
Woman again… The woman named Xiao Rou said displeasedly, “Are you going to that woman’s house again?”
“Don’t worry about my business; just stay at home.”
Xiao Rou sneered, “Home? What home? I don’t see you in the morning, nor do I see you at night… Tell me, what is home?”
“I might not come back tonight, so be it. I have a dinner reservation with someone, so I’m in a hurry.”
The man quickly ended the call.
Xiao Rou threw the phone hard and smashed it hard in front of the dressing table’s glass mirror. While smashing the glass, it also made her look fragmented in the mirror.
She closed the curtain directly, plunged into the luxurious bed, and fell asleep.
