Hurricane City – Chapter 26 (First Encounter)
‘146!’ ’78!’ ’88!’
Efficiently, my [Heavy Strike] followed by a [Combo] instant-killed a thief. Murong Shan Shan together with the magician also killed the other thief.
Without the ability to hide itself, finishing the thief was like cutting fish meat on a cutting board. I could also see the thief’s name: ‘Legendary Crotch’, such a vulgar name. I looked at the combat log from just now: you killed ‘Wonder Crotch’!
F***, such a vulgar group!
Murong Shan Shan acted swiftly. This time another group of seven or eight people was heading this way.
A Warrior who led the group, suddenly used [Heavy Strike] and [Combo] on our Magician sister and instant-killed her. Seeing this, my head felt numb. Was this the way they played? Killing people for fun?
“It’s him!?” Murong Shan Shan leaned on me, her voice trembled. Meanwhile, our Beastmasters were striked by lightning and fire simultaneously.
“Mad Warrior? Our city’s number one player ‘Mad Warrior’?”
A middle-aged man with a vague scar on his face. The several people behind him had the same wretched appearance. It was easy to guess that the three thieves belonged to this group.
“Ha ha, one is the city’s third rank, the other is the rank 9, it seems that this time we will reap a lot. Ck.. Ck.. This Murong Shan Shan girl is still so pretty. Do you still remember the thing with my brother?”
Just as Mad Warrior finished his words, the other players from their side already took some actions shooting us with their [Aeon Flux Shot] and [Frost Arrow]. The two Beastmasters fell immediately on the ground, instantly killed!
“What to do now?” Murong Shan Shan was probably never in this kind of situation before, leaning against me shivering.
I didn’t say a word. Instead, I gave her a bottle of ketchup and through the party channel saying to her, “After you drink this, run to the back of the BOSS. I will attract it.”
Murong Shan Shan said nothing, just drank it up and immediately retreat without looking back. This girl was clever. If she did not do as I told her, she would drop in level again. Since this was a PK situation, the level lost would be 2 levels.
I looked at the opponent’s group of eight people. The archers’ skill should not have cooled down yet. This was a good chance!
I rushed to their side in a sudden, releasing my [Combo] and [Heavy Strike] continuously!
Damn, several archers managed to dodge my combo!
So wonderful! A critical hit!
With my [Heavy Strike] dealing a critical hit, the archer called ‘God, grant me a pussy!’ was actually killed in an instant!
“F***, kill him!” Seeing the archer was killed instantly despite so many people were in his group, Mad Warrior gave out the order anxiously.
I did not stay there, instead I dragged my sword and rushed towards a Level 19 monster on the field to aggro it. The opponent group chased behind me. At first, they still could see my shadow, but seconds later, in front of them was the monster.
Miserable screams filled the air one after another. Since they did not have 60 Defense like me, all 8 players were soon slaughtered by the level 19 monster. On the contrary, having drunk the tomato ketchup, half of my health was restored back, so I just left the monster. When I stood before Mad Warrior, his face showed an interesting expression.
“Shit, you just wait and see!”
To my surprise, Mad Warrior unexpectedly break the City Return Scroll’s seal to return, leaving me dumbfounded there. This was the city’s first ranked player?
“Shall we continue the mission?” Murong Shan Shan came from behind, looking at the spot where Mad Dog activated the City Return Scroll a little bit frustrated.
The Golem BOSS still had 1/10 of its health. I immediately rushed and said, “Quick, don’t let it restore its health!”
Without the clerics, the pressure on Murong Shan Shan and me had increased. Fortunately, Murong Shan Shan had done some preparations. While attacking the BOSS, she gave me two middle-sized healing potions. I rejoiced but also sighed thinking this girl surely was a Lady. There wouldn’t be a lot of people who could afford this middle-sized healing potion costing 1 gold coin each.
“Qing Cai, help me. I can’t handle it anymore!” Murong Shan Shan had started to call for help.
“Shit, don’t you have healing potions?”
“I already gave you all of it…”
“You are very kind to me…”
“Knock it off! I input the wrong quantity…”
After using another two healing potions, the level 21 BOSS was finally killed.
Murong Shan Shan flipped over the monster’s corpse and found a blue gem. She happily said, “Mission accomplished! We can trade this gem with a level 20 blue equipment.”
I was puzzled, “Logically, a level 21 BOSS should drop some equipment too. How come there was nothing?”
“Perhaps because of the mission. Qing Cai, thank you…”
“Don’t mention it, I was here for the money.”
“I was thanking you for helping me to kill those people before.”
“That wasn’t me, it was the monster’s doing.”
Murong Shan Shan lost her temper and gnashed her teeth, “Cut the crap, whatever you said, thank you!”
I did not expect that even a thank you would cause an argument, so I just accept it and then I seriously said, “Just transfer the 700 RMB to the bank account number I gave you last time. Don’t forget about it. Send me a message once you have done the transfer.”
Murong Shan Shan answered with a chuckle, “I will, Qing Cai Hero! Now, let’s go back to the city, or are there still other things to do?”
“Of course we should leave immediately. Do you want to stay here and wait for Mad Warrior to bring some more people to kill us? That’s right, what’s exactly the relation between you and him? Why did he bring people to this far away place just to ruin our mission? And how did he even know that we are here doing the mission in the first place?”
Murong Shan Shan froze and was dumbfounded, looked at me with her eyes blinking, not saying anything.
“It’s a private matter. Please let it go.”
“I’m sorry. Let’s return to the city first. After we get there, will you accompany me in leveling?” Murong Shan Shan grinningly asked.
“I don’t think so. I prefer to level by myself.”
“Humph, I’m such a beauty that men are competing to take me leveling, but you strangely refused. Be honest, are you into guys?”
“Don’t praise yourself!” I broke the seal of a City Return Scroll.
“Bastard, you don’t even give some face!” Murong Shan Shan return back to the city while gnashing her teeth.
After repairing my equipment, I noticed that I almost reached level 17 already. I checked my ranking, world ranking 3,000+, China ranking 2,000+, and perhaps the level 21 BOSS just now had given me a lot of experience, I had jumped to the second place in the city ranking, pushed ‘Shuye Shang De Xiao Mayi’ to the third place.
I checked the mini map. The location of <Mission: Rescue Princess Misha> was at the western plaque cemetery. To practice there while also taking the time to familiarize with the map would be a good thing to do now.
“Lin Fan, what have you been doing?” Lu Xue Han sent me a message.
I answered right away, “I helped the girl who last time bought my sword, Murong Shan Shan, to complete a mission. We also met some people trying to PKing us. That’s why it has taken some time.”
Before Lu Xue Han texted me another message, Xu Lin had quickly asked, “Xiao Lin, did you charge a helping fee?”
“Of course I did. 700 RMB, not bad, right?”
“Hehehe, not bad, not bad~!”
