The night wind blew and the dropped leaves danced . I walked on the forest path in the school yard . Even through it was early autumn, there was a firefly dancing in the bushes .

In front of me, Wan Er was wearing a short white skirt . Even without makeup, her pretty face was bewitching under the warm light of the road lamps . Although she wore very simple clothes, anyone could tell that she was a top-class beauty . I followed behind Wan Er, which meant I  was a bodyguard; if I walked side by side with her, it would imply that I was her boyfriend .

“Xiao Yao, today we’re not going to eat in the cafeteria . Let’s go out somewhere to eat . Where should we go and eat?” She asks suddenly .

I instantly replied: “We should go and eat expensive food!”

Wan Er suddenly stopped then turned around and looked at me with those beautiful eyes: “You want to die? My savings for this month are used up and not much money is left…”

I spread out my hands: “Then let’s eat some fried egg rice from a stall somewhere, but I’m only afraid that you won’t like it…”

Wan Er pouted her mouth and smiled: “Who said that I won’t like it? Let’s go!”

“Will we really go eat fried rice?”

“Of course, why would I lie to you . ”



We went outside of the school and rows of stores were selling delicious food . 9 o’clock at night was the business peak for students and in Liu Hua University there were probably over a thousand students playing <Destiny> . So, the number of people that came here and eat was not a small one .

We chose a small stall and I pulled out a chair and let Wan Er sit down first . I then sat directly opposite to her and raised my hand and said: “Boss, two bowls of fried egg rice please! The 4 yuan (70 cents USD) ones!”

Wan Er took out her cellphone and looked at the forums online . On the side, many students that were eating rice discovered that there was a super beauty here . All of them had their eyes wide open and their drool almost fell onto the tables .

I rested my chin on one hand and I looked at Wan Er bored . She pursed her lips and whined: “Damn it…I was ranked first just a few seconds ago in Fan Shu City, but now I’ve been overtaken and dropped back to fourth . I was just helping Cheng Yue with a quest, but now so many people passed me already… ”

A pair of watery, beautiful eyes and nothing lacking on her face, I was enchanted . The clothes she wore suited her and her soft little face was pretty in the scenery of night . I was tempted to pinch her face, but of course I wouldn’t dare do so .

“I want to raise you like a pet…” I accidentally slipped some deadly words .

Wan Er was faintly distracted and said: “What did you say just now?”

I immediately corrected myself: “Nothing . I said nothing . ”

The edge of her lips rose and she smiled: “Who do you want to raise as a pet?”

I shook my head immediately: “Nothing . You heard wrong…”

Wan Er snorted and said: “Whatever, you probably couldn’t afford to raise me…”


“Oh right . ” Wan Er looked at me: “I saw a post on the forums and it said because of Yue Qing Qian’s problems, you and Yan Zhao dueled and you lost…”

I nodded: “Mm, Yan Zhao’s attack is way too high for me . I couldn’t take his level 4 [Combo] strikes, so that loss is normal . ”

“But I also heard that you broke off the last two strikes of Yan Zhao Warrior’s [Peerless Strike] . ” Wan Er smiled: “Peerless Strike only takes 1 . 7 seconds and you successfully interrupted the combo . You’re pretty good…”

My face went red: “Actually, it was just lucky hit…”

“Of course it was…” Wan Er laughed then looked at me and asked: “Li Xiao Yao, my dad once told me that you’re no ordinary person . In all of Hangzhou city he said that there might not be even one person that can match your skill . Actually I’m also very curious . Are you really that powerful?”

I clenched my teeth and replied: “Lets not talk about that . If I don’t have to fight then I try not to fight, so I can avoid damaging any relationships…”

“Then why’d you duel Yan Zhao?”

“That’s because…”

“You like Qing Qian!”

“No . Absolutely not!”

“Hehe, lies!”

I gave up: “Okay, I like Qing Qian . Are you happy now?”

Wan Er shrugged and lowered her head: “I couldn’t care less about your personal life and feelings~”


After a few minutes the fried egg rice was ready . When I finished my second bowl, Wan Er didn’t even finish her first . I asked: “Why isn’t Cheng Yue with you today?”

“She’s doing a quest right now, so she said she’ll just get take out . ”


As she finished up I clapped my hands: “Let’s go now . Do we have classes tomorrow?”

“Yep, are you going?”

“I don’t want to . Will my grades be affected?”

“Nope, I’ll cover for you . I have connections with the professor tomorrow… . ”



We reentered the school yard and walked back onto the same road that we came from . The rocks on the road creaked slightly and didn’t give way, but Wan Er was wearing heels that were at least 7 cm high . Of course they were beautiful, but while walking she was a bit unbalanced, so she carefully treaded along .

“Ah… . ”

Suddenly she cried out and tripped .

With my fast reactions I stretched my hand around Wan Er’s waist to hold her up . But I miscalculated and my hand didn’t reach the correct area . My hands ended up in some elastic and soft area, but I didn’t dare to release my hand . So I raised Wan Er back like this .

Cold sweat was falling and I immediately helped her stabilize herself . I released my hand, although reluctantly…


Wan Er showed an embarrassed face . Her whole face was red . She glared at me and said: “You…You did that intentionally!”

I immediately explained myself: “That was…an accident . How could I dare touch you in that spot?”

Wan Er stomped her feet: “Touch me where?!”

“That…I…That was a miscalculation . I never wanted to touch that area…”

“Hmph, my dad said that you were skilled . But you’re so bad…”

I decided to screw it all and said: “Yep . That was all intentional . What are you going to do about it?”

Wan Er didn’t know how to reply to that, so she just said: “Let’s go, we need to rest early…”


Before we got far, I heard some rustles in the bushes . Quickly 4 shadows appeared in front of me with black jumpsuits .

I instantly stood in front of Wan Er to protect her: “What do you guys want?”

Although the road lamps were a bit dim, I could see that the face was full of evil intentions . The person in the back laughed: “Li Xiao Yao did you really think that we wouldn’t attack you?”

My eyes went cold: “Liu Ying!”

“Right!” Liu Ying was also wearing a black jumpsuit and walked to the front, smiling at Wan Er . “Lin Wan Er, this is between me and Li Xiao Yao and has nothing to do with you . You can leave now…”

Wan Er’s mouth opened slightly and said: “Liu Ying are you planning on starting a fight? Don’t forget the school rules . Any student that starts a fight gets expelled!”

Liu Ying laughed: “School rules are for the good students and I am no good student . Lin Wan Er, I admit that you are my type . So please step aside . We don’t want to harm you!”

Wan Er wanted to say more, but I turned around and smiled: “Miss, you don’t need to leave . Wait half a minute for me!”

She nodded and maybe saw my self-confidence and smiled as well: “Mm, I’ll wait…”


“Damn brat, so arrogant!”

Liu Ying suddenly pulled out a baseball bat and yelled to the other 3 students: “As long as he doesn’t die, I’ll take responsibility for everything!”

The other three students smiled as they pulled out more bats and rushed towards me .


I stepped over the leaves and pebbles and suddenly burst over to them . I put strength in my left leg and my body left the ground . I chained two kicks and with two bangs two of the students fell heavily to the ground . I spun my body mid air and with a fist full of power I punched the third student with a thump!


Blood and teeth flew out and the student’s face instantly turned bloody . His face hit the ground with a light bang and he passed out immediately .


Liu Ying who was in the back was stunned . Three of his underlings were defeated so easily . This was something that he probably couldn’t even dream about . So with his baseball bat, he went all in and dashed towards me while raising his bat!

I stood there and my right hand swept along an arc, shattering the baseball bat instantly . I retracted my hand again and delivered it straight into Liu Ying’s chest!

Liu Ying stuttered back a few steps while clutching his chest . His face was full of cold sweat as he raised his head to look at me with a painful expression . The punch wouldn’t physically harm him, but he would feel a lot of pain .


I clapped my hands, turned around, and smiled: “Okay, I’m done!”

Wan Er was standing there with her small mouth wide open .

She was speechless, so I patted her shoulder and said: “Miss, we need to sleep early~”

“Oh, oh…”

Wan Er snapped back into reality .


“After Liu Ying joined the baseball club in the school, he gathered a group of lackeys…” Wan Er paused but she continued: “I heard from some of my upperclassman that quite a lot of male students were dragged into a fight by Liu Ying and the most serious damage was that both of a person’s leg were broken…”

I frowned: “That is really out of control…”

“Yeah, his attitude from reality must have transferred into the game . So that’s why he can’t stop attacking you in Ba Huang City and wants to completely wipe you out…” We reached the girl’s dorm and Wan Er took a deep look at me and smiled: “How about this . You come to Fan Shu City with me and Cheng Yue . Then we’ll be able to protect you~”

I shook my head and say firmly: “No, I will establish myself in Ba Huang City!”

“Okay, then I’m going up now…”

“Mm, good night Miss . ”

“Mm . . ”
