Hurricane City – Chapter 25 (The Ambush)
When I didn’t answer immediately, Murong Shan Shan grumpily went on to say, “700! 700 RMB is the most I can offer. More than this then this girl has to sell herself on the street!”
Was she also? I didn’t expect that nowadays being a Lady would be such a trend. I let out a big sweat, hurriedly said, “No, don’t do that. 700 is okay. I’m not such a ruthless person. Where should we meet?”
Murong Shan Shan laughed, “OK, let’s meet at the south gate. I’ll be waiting for you there with my friends.”
I closed the communication and walked across the east gate directly. Fortunately, the church is quite near from the south gate. Ten minutes later I arrived and saw Murong Shan Shan standing from afar with her hair fluttering. She was using the long sword I sold her last time to lean on the ground leisurely. With such a relaxed and carefree appearance, who would have thought that she just lost a level?
Standing next to Murong Shan Shan were five other players. It seemed that the two sisters were Cleric, and there’s a female Magician. The other two male players were Beastmasters. Sure enough, the only one who can face the monster directly would only be Murong Shan Shan, a female Swordsman.
Standing at the hanging bridge of the south gate, Murong Shan Shan was indeed a rare beauty. A breastplate glowing with a spinning light wrapped tightly her exquisite body, a flame-red mantle hung at her back gave such a valiant impression. I couldn’t help not to freeze looking at her.
“Stop looking. Let’s go for the mission!” a girl waved her hand in front of my eyes and grinned. She said that while glancing at Murong Shan Shan which snow-white face immediately turned red.
“Let’s go!” Murong Shan Shan suddenly pounded me with the hilt of her sword, then pushed me out of the gate.
“Noble warrior, could you tell us how we should address you? Master Qing Cai? Or Master Baiyu Tang?”TL
Murong Shan Shan also said with a smile, “That’s right. I’ve known you for a day but still don’t know what to call you. Should we just call you Xiao Bai?”TL
“Never mind, this is not something important. Why don’t you tell me about your mission, do we just simply need to kill the BOSS?”
“It’s not that easy. This Stone Golem has a high Attack and Defense. Last time, we attacked it for 10 minutes and only managed to reduce 1/4 of its health. I think its health should be over ten thousand already.”
I was surprised. Such an amazing BOSS?
“What’s your Defense? How much damage did the BOSS hit you each time it attacked?”
Murong Shan Shan thought seriously, then she said, “My Defense is 46. Each time it attack, I think I lost about 80 health. With my current health of 385, I can take at most five hits.”
“Well, my Defense is 60 with a total health of 462. Not too much different with you. When we attack it, you should be the main tank and step back when your health became low. I will then step in to attack simultaneously while being a tank.”
“Okay, so be it.”
The monsters around the city’s south gate were mostly non-living creatures. Low-level skeleton soldiers and stone golems were no match for our small party. Along the way, everyone had introduced themselves to each other.
Murong Shan Shan was a college student, but she often skipped classes. The other three girls were her roommates and the two boys were just escorting two of the girls. Besides Murong Shan Shan whose level was higher at level 14, the other five’s levels were between 11-12 only. They wouldn’t deal any significant damage to the Stone Golem.
According to Cocoa, the cheerful girl, blunt introduction, the two male players actually used to woe Murong Shan Shan. But she never took men seriously, and would easily reject them.
When the open field had led us to a single path, we could see the targeted Stone Golem at the end of the path.
“Shan Shan, this time let my pet go first. It could hold two attacks.” The Beastmaster guy said attentively to Murong Shan Shan.
“Don’t. The pets are the main attack force. Without the pets, what could the both of you do?”
Murong Shan Shan’s words made the two boys felt embarrassed. The girls just laughed without saying anything.
“Should we start? Shan Shan, you should go first!” When I looked at the giant golem in front of us, I couldn’t help but nervously pushed Murong Shan Shan forward.
Murong Shan Shan glared at me unhappily, “You have no chivalry at all. You even let a weak girl like me on the frontline!”
“You are weak? Well, I am no knight either as I was going to be a Thief originally. Forget it, why should I even tell you that. I’ll tank first, then you should step in right after so I can focus on attacking. Clerics should pay attention to Shan Shan’s health.”
After discussing the strategy, I took the lead. I rushed forward and immediately used the [Heavy Strike] skill. Although the Stone Golem had a high Defense, but with my Attack of 97, my claymore still dealt an 112 damage to it. Murong Shan Shan was surprised and couldn’t say a word. I quickly stepped back and pushed her forward, “Big sister, why didn’t you step in?”
Murong Shan Shan stared at me blankly for a while, then she used her [Combo]. Two numbers, ’34’ ’28’, showed up. Her Attack was indeed below mine. I checked my health in a flash. Just now, when the Golem hit me, I lost 54 health, which wasn’t really painful.
“Shan Shan, do you know the rewards for this mission?”
Murong Shan Shan smiled, “No, I only know that it should be a blue equipment. Otherwise, why would I be so desperate for this mission?”
“What, blue equipment?”
“What? Look at you, like someone who never seen any equipment.”
“I didn’t expect blue equipment to be available this early in the game…” I sighed.
“Erm, Xiao Qing Cai (Little Green Veggies), I want to ask you. What’s your relation with that Qing Cai Keke? Don’t say you don’t know her~” Murong Shan Shan pretended to give me a hostile look.
I didn’t answer, just focusing on attacking the BOSS. Murong Shan Shan didn’t want to drop it, instead she went on to ask, “Hey, do you have a girlfriend?”
I thought of Xin Yu, then shook my head, “No.”
“What’s so good?”
“Nothing. I just like to say good.”
With my support, Murong Shan Shan could attack with ease while the two Beastmaster’s pet were also attacking continuously. Twenty minutes later, the Golem’s health almost hit bottom.
“Blue equipment, we’ll get you soon…” Murong Shan Shan laughed like a blooming flower.
This result was actually as we expected. But when the Golem was about to be finished, behind Cocoa the Cleric, a red light flashed twice. Her body began to tremble for a while before she turned into a white light and was sent back to the city to rebirth.
Thieves! Malicious PK!
A total of three thieves had ambushed us!
With Cocoa the cleric as the main support fell, the other cleric sister was soon after also killed by an ambush. Although she wasn’t weak, but compared to the three thieves, she was much weaker that she couldn’t even hit back.
After an ambush, a thief had to wait for a minute before he could activate his stealth ability. Murong Shan Shan and I seemed to have the same thought, immediately leaving the almost finished Golem BOSS and rushed to the three thieves.
