Chapter 16: Fragility (1)
The person in the private room next door seemed to have slammed the table and cursed a bit. They were most likely cheated by their teammates.
For a moment, Ye Xi’s attention was attracted by this commotion.
Perhaps due to Ye Xi’s long silence, the slag author didn’t wait for a response before he continued saying, “I met your former boss, by the way. He said that you were a good employee, hard-working, and dedicated. What a pity that you died from not paying attention to your body and overworking. Because of your death, your boss found out about the situation in the orphanage. Since he was fortunate enough to once have a hard-working employee like you, he became an anonymous donor for the orphanage as a way to apologize for not paying attention to your health.
Initially, Ye Xi was a bit upset, but when she heard this, she felt happy again. She smiled and said, “That’s great.”
“Because of you, there are new readers for the novel《Overbearing School Prince, love me . With the new income, I can donate all of it to the orphanage. Even if there wouldn’t be any income for the book in the future, I would still send over money each month in a fixed time interval. You just need to live in that world in peace, Ye Xi.”
Ye Xi was genuinely moved by this and said, “Thank you, thank you very much.”
“No need.” The slag author seemed to pick up a smile before his tone became rushed, “Just be a good female lead. You crazy woman!”
Ye Xi laughed.
“You really need to develop the romantic parts of the story so that the novel would generate more income.” The slag author’s tone became better.
Ye Xi wasn’t moved by his words, “An Mudie can do this too.”
“Fine, fine. You have to take fate into consideration as well.” The slag author gave up on this matter. He changed the topic to something else, “You do need to control your thoughts, though. Today, there was a reader who commented about your strange thoughts regarding the author, readers, and others. But you noticed this quickly, so this is something worth praising you for.”
“Hm.” Ye Xi casually responded and said, “Since there is a time difference between us, I think it’s necessary that we decide on an appropriate time for us to call each other.”
“I thought of this before.” The slag author was quiet for a few seconds while pondering. After a moment, he said, “At night, from eight to eleven your time, is that ok?”
Ye Xi immediately disagreed to this, “Up until ten. I need to study.”
“What are you doing now?”
“Escaped class, went to an internet cafe, and playing games.”
Ye Xi made left him speechless. This lifted her mood and she couldn’t help but chuckle.
“Speaking of which, I originally planned to release 10,000 words today.” The slag author stiffly changed the subject, “But then, I found out that you died from over-working and it was too tragic. I’m just going to release 3,000 words a day instead. Haha~”
He laughed at her misfortune.
Ye Xi hung up. She didn’t want others to laugh about the cause of her death. They simply had no sympathy.
When Ye Xi hung up, she noticed that her time was up, and the computer had automatically shut down. She had not enjoyed herself to the fullest just yet, so she went to add another thirty yuan. Although she left her station for just a couple of seconds, when she came back, the room was already occupied by someone else. Ye Xi had no choice but to go to a different room. However, all the other private rooms were already taken, so she just went to the public area.
The public area was a bit cheaper, and cost only five yuan an hour. When the person in charge of the cafe saw her, he personally came over to tell her that she could play for an extra hour.
Wei Shenglan wanted to take a nap before heading to class. Who knew that by the time he had woken up, it was almost five in the afternoon!
After he finished washing, he decided to go downstairs and eat. There, he saw Nan Gongnan in front of the laptop, concentrated on playing games.
Wei Shenglan asked, “Little Hai, are you going to eat?”
Nangong Hai just kept staring at the laptop screen while his two hands seemed to fly across the keyboard. He said, “Just go eat by yourself for a while. I just opened an alt account to play. Who knew that I would finally meet an opponent worthy of battle? I’m going to crush them first and after this, I’ll play with you.”
“No need.” Wei Shenglan rejected and just left.
