Hurricane City – Chapter 42 (Instant Noodles Girl)
I gave the shining [Silver Armor] to Murong Shan Shan right away, and her appearance became much more exquisite with her full chest and fine round waist. She looks extremely attractive.
“Oh, why is your name in red?” She had arrived quite for a while before she realized my name was in red. “Well, not just my name is red, but myself have turned red as well.”
Indeed, my black armor had also a trace of a red color and looked somewhat gloomy.
“Shan Shan, have you eaten any midnight snack?”
Murong Shan Shan looked at me in surprise and said, “You will not ask me out in the middle of the night like this, right?”
“Well, what I meant was, if it’s ok with you, I want you to level with me through the night. I’ll take you with me!”
“Oh, is there such a good thing? Do I need to pay you for the training fee?”
“No, I’m just looking for a beautiful girl to accompany me so there would be no chance for a girl I dislike. This late at night, I’m afraid I would mistake her for a ghost…”
Murong Shan Shan was now at Level 19. After passing Level 7, it had become more difficult to kill the monsters, but her equipment were top rates. And with the high defense armor I just sold her, she would have more fighting force. The sword I sold her last time had been changed already to a new one. When I asked her about it, she told me she got this sword from *** a friend. With an Attack of 21-36, it was not disappointing at all.
After killing few monsters, I realized I was mistaken. Murong Shan Shan killed the monsters in a clean and effective way. Although her speed was not better than mine, I found out she was also a Swordsman who put all the points to the Strength like me. And with 5 green equipment, her current Defense was 122, not worse than me too.
“Lin Fan, who did you killed that you got a red name?”
It loomed that Murong Shan Shan didn’t know about the thing I PK-ed Mad Warrior.
I laughed. “Shan Shan, the armor you’re wearing, do you know from whom I got it dropped?”
“What? You killed him?” Murong Shan Shan asked surprisingly.
“Of course! I saw him brought at a group fight. While he wasn’t careful, I stabbed him to death. Satisfied?”
“Isn’t the way you killed him a bit wretched?” Murong Shan Shan smiled but went on to say, “Doesn’t matter. Next month, I’ll treat you to a meal!”
“Anything but rice bowls!”
“Of course, we’ll eat cuisines! Looks like next month I need to get more allowance.”
“Shan Shan, why are you spending so much game in this game?”
Murong Shan Shan turned to look at me, thought for a moment and said, “My mom said, this game as a good prospect for the commercial value. Currently, this game has over one million players. If I can develop my character well and create a team with the company’s name, wouldn’t it be the same as an advertisement for the company? Just the same like how many big companies are sponsoring sports teams. The difference is that this advertisement would be seen inside the game only, targeting the players itself, so the type of commodities would also play a big role. Like my mom’s company, specialized in the production of instant noodles, it would be a main snack for the people who have spent their whole day inside the game, right?”
I nodded. If I were to play this game alone, I could imagine the food in the fridge would be gone in a few days, and then I would depend on instant noodles. Ugh, those days… So gloomy! But Murong Shan Shan’s mother’s idea was pretty good, to create a team in [Moon Monochrome] and make it famous. The reputation would be a good advertisement for the business. And within the official forum of [Moon Monochrome], posting some hot topics there would attract over ten million viewers. Just adding the business name on top, the effect could be imagined.
“Shan Shan, is your mom the president of the company? Which instant noodles? Master Kang?”
Murong Shan Shan laughed, “My mom is the president of the company, but not Master Kang’s. My mom’s surname is Liu, hehe, it’s Master Bull Instant Noodles with the jingles: Master Bull Instant Noodles, so amazing!” (TL Note: in Chinese, the word ‘bull’ is used to say amazing, so the characters literally said: Master Bull Instant Noodles, so Bull!)
“By the way, today is already the 30th. You’ll get your allowance tomorrow, right?”
“Yes, this time my mom will send me at least 100,000 RMB. If I can set up a team earlier, I would get even more capital. My mom is really serious this time. She said if the effects are significant, the funding will be unlimited!” Murong Shan Shan turned red in excitement.
I frowned and said, “The requisites to establish a guild are difficult for the players with current level and prestige, almost impossible. The guild founder would need 10,000 prestige points. How much prestige do you have now? Currently, I only have about 1000 points. It’s still a long way to go!”
Murong Shan Shan bit her lips, “My prestige has not even reach 1000. How long must I wait until I can establish a guild?”
“Do more missions and kill BOSSes with levels higher than yours, that will give better rewards. But killing the same BOSS over and over again, the prestige reward would get lower.”
Murong Shan Shan stopped her movement, looked deep toward the sawmill and said, “Will there be any BOSS around here?”
“There should be. Usually when there’s a big pack of monsters, there’s always a BOSS. Looking at the dark environment here, I’m sure there are high-level undeads or something.”
“The let’s slowly clear this area!” Murong Shan Shan showed an eager expression.
I nodded and lead the way to the sawmill. On the way, we killed the monsters on the left and right side easily like cutting through the wheat. The two of us were like two swords forcing a gap in the middle, leaving piles of broken bones, broken skulls, and broken blades.
An hour later, engulfed in a white light, Murong Shan Shan rose to Level 20 and officially ranked second in the city’s ranking! I also rose to Level 24 few minutes afterward, continued to widen the gap between me and the second-ranked.
I looked at my friend’s list. Except for Lu Xue Han at Level 19, the rest of them are at Level 17 and 18. Those women were practicing in quite a crazy way. All 8 of us were in the top 100 city’s rank list. Now that Mad Warrior had been killed back to Level 15, even an ordinary player could easily beat him.
“Lin Fan, over there is a small hut guarded by skeleton warriors. Let’s check it out, perhaps there are treasures inside the hut!”
I looked at the direction pointed by Murong Shan Shan, and sure enough, there was a group of skeleton warriors guarding in front of a hut. In the darkness of the night, a faint firelight could still be seen vaguely from the inside of the hut.
