Brown short boots, tight jeans and a jacket of the same color as the boots, in addition to a hat and scarf. She did not bring the painting tube case that she always brought along with her.
After changing into winter clothes, Nero, who was walking slowly in front of Boss Luo, was probably just a rather strange girl with white hair in a city.
No one could associate it with her past, present, and future.
Walking in the bustling city, Luo Qiu noticed that Nero had a different kind of excitement from the past.
In front of the cabinet of a cake shop on the street, she put her hands on the window glass at this time. She barely stuck her face on the glass, staring at a matcha cake that had just been placed.
“Want to eat?” Luo Qiu asked curiously. She just ate breakfast in the hotel suite about half an hour ago, and the portion was quite large.
Nero nodded, obeying her own body’s instinct. She clapped her hands and begged, “Boss! Please buy me one, I have no money.”
This poor and frank smile made Luo Qiu walk into the cake shop helplessly, then he walked out with the packaged matcha cake.
“Thank you, boss!” Nero walked happily while eating the cake.
She was like a little girl enjoying the winter sun… If there was a danger now, could she still maintain this poor and frank smile that was trying to tell the world that what kind of smile she originally had?
“Logically, Ms. Nero shouldn’t have any financial problems.”
Nero took it for granted, “This situation wouldn’t happen before. The clubhouse basically has its own secretive offices all over the world. There are also many in this country. After all, among the 26 people who have the right to speak in the clubhouse, a few of them come from this country. But as you said, as a member of the Divine General, how would I lack money when I’m out here right? I’m talking about Divine General, boss, you should understand right?”
By faking death in the battle with Kuck, now on the Michael Club list, she was probably marked as dead. Nero couldn’t unscrupulously enjoy the Divine General’s benefits like she used to be.
Seeing Nero eating a piece of matcha cake happily and left some cake residue beside her lips, Luo Qiu took out a handkerchief and gave it to her.
“Thank you.” Nero didn’t try to be pretentious. She took it and wiped her lips a few times.
“Do you still want to eat?” Luo Qiu asked with a smile.
“If can, please give me another one~”
Boss Luo nodded. Nero bought the time for herself; she didn’t seem to care about spending it this way.
So another matcha cake was delivered to the girl. Looking at Nero still showing a happy expression, Luo Qiu finally found the same characteristic between the current Nero and the Nero he once encountered.
“Food, is it important to you?”
Nero stopped, holding the cake that was less than half in both hands, and she suddenly said softly, “If there is something in this world that will never betray you, it must be food. If there is something in this world that will give in for you unconditionally, then it must be food… Before people enjoy life, emotions, and even show hatred, sadness, etc.; before all biological signs, isn’t it because there is food?”
She looked at Boss Luo, “Since it is such an important food, of course, I ate it with gratitude.”
Luo Qiu smiled, “Is it delicious?”
Nero said softly, “As long as it can fill my stomach, it’s delicious.”
Although this was the case, she was not in a state of enjoying food. Because whether it was a small cake or a big meal, Nero ate them almost by swallowing.
It seemed that the time to enjoy food was the real luxury for her.
So, after she swallowed the second piece of the cake, she was obviously choked. Boss Luo stretched out his hand at this time, and a bottle of mineral water in the refrigerator of a convenience store across the road disappeared and fell into his palm; at the same time, on the cashier of the convenience store, there were three yuan there inexplicably.
“Wah… I’m saved! I almost became the first Divine General who chokes to death!”
Of course, this was just a joke.
Nero wiped the water on her lips with her sleeve, and she looked at Luo Qiu and asked while blinking, “Boss, how much time is left?”
“5 hours and 17 minutes more.”
“5 hours…” Nero stood up suddenly, and she stretched out her hands to pull up Luo Qiu directly. She said with a look of excitement, “In this case, don’t waste time! Boss, do you want to have one round with me!?”
Nero was shouting in excitement. There was enthusiasm flashing in her eyes, and her face was a little flushed because of excitement. She even clamped her legs even more at this time.
“Go… Go go!!! Yes!!! That’s it! Boss, you are great!!! Harder! Harder! My side is almost done! I’m coming out soon… I’m out! Ah ah ah!!!
Thus, the big spear, which was releasing extreme heat, was lifted up. The victory screen of this arcade mecha game appeared in front of Luo Qiu and Nero.
The opponent’s unwilling voice came from the corresponding huge gaming consoles on the opposite, “Hey You, another game!”
“Bring it on!” Nero stood up directly. She stretched out her fingers and pulled down her eyelid, stuck out her tongue, and made a grimace at the opponent.
The two people on the opposite side were probably in their thirties. Perhaps they were well-educated, but they unexpectedly showed their teeth due to anger. Because this was a fairly old arcade game.
And this place contained the reminiscent of a generation, and it had been eliminated by the rapid change of society. in this game hall, Luo Qiu once witnessed the birth of a soul.
And now, without a doubt, he was immersed in the declining atmosphere of this game hall… It was unusually cold here.
The opponents at the opposite were here to reminisce their childhood. Perhaps their skills in those years were very good right? Luo Qiu held the pink joystick; the gameplay was taught by Nero herself.
“Unexpectedly, Miss Nero is so familiar with the products of this era.”
Nero rolled her eyes and said, “It’s just only this place is different, alright? In many places outside, this kind of game hall is still very popular… Wow!! Boss, don’t rush it, you are too far ahead. Watch out for mines!”
It was the first time for Luo Qiu to sit in such a place and play such a game… it was a novelty.
Time passed bit by bit, and the combination of Nero and Luo Qiu defeated the two uncles on the opposite side again and again.
“No way! We can’t beat you two at all! You guys are really amazing!”
The two uncles finally surrendered reluctantly. One of them even bought some drinks from the game hall counter and gave them to Nero and Luo Qiu.
Boss Luo looked at the can of coke placed in front of him with some surprise, but Nero had already drunk it unceremoniously, “Sure enough, drinking coke after exercising is the best!”
“Yeah right!” The uncles laughed loudly.
Seeing Nero and the two uncles slurping the coke like friends they met at a night snack stall by the roadside, Boss Luo finally reached out and accepted the kindness.
Time was getting lesser here again.
But Nero continued to sit back in front of the gaming console enthusiastically, and the two uncles had also left together at this time.
They may be friends from childhood to the present, or they may have met here before, and thus they formed the current relationship.
Luo Qiu leaned against the machine, “The game coin is almost used up, do you still want to continue?”
“If it runs out, then let it be.” Nero didn’t look back, focusing on the game, “I won’t be reluctant.”
