Chapter 17: Fragility (2)
On the other hand, Ye Xi met a very powerful opponent in her game. Being an experienced player, she was certain that this new player was definitely a guru who was currently playing an alt. Because of this, Ye Xi didn’t even try to be easy-going during their battle. She wasn’t worried about how this will hurt her dignity at all.
However, Ye Xi was thinking too much. They played a few dozen rounds and her winning rate was now only 50%; none of the other players were stronger than her.
After playing just a few dozen rounds, her pampered and spoiled body couldn’t handle it any longer. She told the guru’s alt username, ‘Kawaii’, about her situation. The opposing player’s name was very cute, but his moves were harsh and cruel.
Ye Xi’s instinct was that Kawaii was definitely a Lolita.
After she added Kawaii as a friend, Ye Xi exited the game. She stood up, exercised her arms and limbs, and then turned on a TV show to watch. What was strange was that this world didn’t have classical campus idol dramas like《Overbearing School Prince, Love Me 》. This was probably one of the setups. Otherwise, if Wei Shenglan accidentally saw this, wouldn’t he fall in with An Mudie using the normal route?
However, Wei Shenglan didn’t always follow the usual route for the plot.
She watched a few episodes of family and ethics theatrical work and finished eating all the food as well as the instant noodles. She was still hungry by the time she had to recharge her computer time. Ye Xi had five minutes left to decide whether or not to add more hours to her time, but in the end, she simply turned off the computer, took her phone, and walked outside.
She opened the glass door of the Internet cafe and a burst of warm air greeted her. The air was mixed with all sorts of unhealthy smells while the road was filled with endless traffic; everyone was busy. Although these scents and scenes before her now are very familiar, somehow, the beautiful school with its flowery gardens were unfamiliar in comparison, even though she went to school daily.
Ye Xi walked a few steps and stopped at the tree by the end of the road. She took a deep breath and stared blankly at the streetlight across the road.
“What are you doing?”
A young man’s voice came up from behind.
Ye Xi trembled when she heard the voice and snapped out of her trance. She looked over and saw a young man wearing a white shirt. He was surrounded in a layer of gentle light formed by the fusion of the different colored traffic lights. If this kind of light radiated on someone else, it would’ve looked like a mess, but on him, the lights made him look like an illusion.
Wei Shenglan lowered his head and stared at the young girl who smelled like smoke. There was an internet cafe behind her. Judging from her steps, he could guess that the smell had gotten on her when she was in the internet cafe. She was relatively skinny in her white dress. When the wind blew past, the beautiful bangs on her forehead would slightly move while the hem of her skirt would sway slightly.
She looked delicate and vulnerable, just like a flower in the wind, making others want to quietly admire her.
He was slightly stunned. This was the first time he felt that he wanted to cherish a delicate girl like her.
He was emotionally stirred when he heard the young girl’s thoughts: ‘This young man seems to have brought along a portable filter for himself, what a great ability! He could go out and take pictures without editing or changing the filters, which saves him time and energy. Looks like he has a lot of benefits with being handsome.’
Wei Shenglan was speechless.
“Wei Sheng, what a coincidence.” Ye Xi broke the slightly awkward atmosphere.
“Hmph.” Wei Shenglan just went around her and left.
Ye Xi was speechless.
He actually left… ‘Hey, hey, hey. Since you didn’t want to speak to me, why were you trying to strike up a conversation with me then? You even hmphed! You’re so rude! So prideful! What a devil!
Wei Shenglan stopped walking and suppressed his urge to turn around and reply. He knew that she only said these words in her mind, plus he didn’t want to reveal his ability to read people’s thoughts, so he had to endure with this for now.
