Hurricane City – Chapter 91 (The Courage Challenge – 20)
When I woke up the next morning, the sun was already shining bright. The window was covered with a thick layer of ice, and outside, pedestrian going to work had crowded this modern city.
Looking at the phone, it was already 7:30 in the morning. In half an hour, the individual competition would start. Winning the 500,000 RMB champion reward, that was my goal! In order not to depend on others in the future, in order to buy a house and marrying a wife, I had to get this 500,000 RMB no matter what!
Just as I walked out my room, I met Lu Xue Han who was going to call me to eat. Seeing that I was already awake, she smiled and said, “The tournament will start soon. Quick wash yourself and eat.”
Xu Lin and Xin Yu were already in the game. I ate my breakfast in a hurry and quickly went online. It was already 7:50; just in time for the tournament.
Shortly after, the system prompted: the Courage Challenge will start. Players, please prepare to enter the game venue!
I was sent into the game venue 7203654. Across from me was a weak female Mage who was blinking her big eyes looking at me. After a few seconds, she said something that almost caused me to faint, “Eh? Big brother, how come all your equipment are red? Is it that there’s a place in the city where we can dye it? Where did you dye it? How much does it cost?”
At that moment, I suddenly remember a game, XX Sims. That kind of boring games that only milked the players. The game was said to be free, but it made money from selling virtual clothes. According to my data and speculation, it was very likely that in that game, a virtual lingerie would be more expensive than an actual lingerie. Especially those narcissists and ignorant young girls who would rather not wearing any bras to spend their money buying virtual undergarment. Anyhow, today’s young generation girls were to the extent that most of them weren’t even wearing any bras.
“Big brother, you’re so handsome. Your equipment is also very good. Do you want me to be your wife? I’ll let you videoing…”
Before she could finish her words, she had been turned into a white light. I mumbled, “Sorry, but I have no interest for women that haven’t fully developed, especially stupid and idiot’s one…”
The first match ended just in three seconds, and I was immediately transferred out of the game field. Luckily, right next to the Market Place!
I quickly put all the equipment that I got yesterday from Mad Warrior’s group for sale with a fairly high price. This money could be considered ill-gotten. I wondered how Murong Shan Shan would feel if she knew about this matter.
While I was thinking about it, suddenly I found myself surrounded by a crowd of people, and many of them had already unsheathed their swords. With my name already in red, it couldn’t get more red anymore.
People would do anything to get their hands on a fortune. Who knew how many people would envy my top quality equipment. Walking the streets in the city and showing off would invite even a greater risk.
I unleashed my sword and waved it, “What are you all looking at? Are you thinking to get my equipment?”
Two Mages had already started the incantations for Exploding Flame, and a few other Knights were also preparing to launch Assault at me. The battle to kill someone in red and robbing the equipment would begin in any moment!
A fire-red figure suddenly stepped in front of me. It turned out to be Murong Shan Shan who I hadn’t seen for a day!
“What do you guys want? Robbing on someone’s misfortune?” Murong Shan Shan glanced at the surrounding crowd, her Night Elf Sword waved through the air, drawing a beautiful arc, “It’s fine if you guys want to do it, but consider this. Do you want to mess with Green Veggies’ and Murong Shan Shan’s future guild? If anyone were to take any actions today, then I, Murong Shan Shan vow to kill that person until his level dropped to zero. I’ll never stop!”
I was touched a bit. Although I wasn’t afraid to fight with these people, but I couldn’t allow myself to drop equipment or lose levels during this important moment of the tournament.
She looked especially adorable when she gritted her teeth and talk so fiercely. A few guys who were about to give a try before became all quiet. Some of them even started to drool looking at her.
Indeed, if the crowd decided to go all out against us, they could beat me and Murong Shan Shan to death. However, the players at the front would certainly have no way to survive us. Especially, after seeing the recording of my fight with Murong Shan Shan, the knowledge of our offensive strength was well known among them and being the most intimidating factor. Even if I was standing in the center of the City with my red name, perhaps no one would dare to make a move.
The crowd immediately broke up, and I quickly pulled her into the Cathedral. There weren’t many people inside. Even if there were someone to kill me, the combined strength of Murong Shan Shan’s and mine would easily push them off.
She looked at me in surprise, “Lin Fan, how could your name be so bright red? Who did you PK outside? You must have killed many people, right?”
“Don’t worry about it. It was that idiot Mad Warrior. Last night, he brought people to kill my boss and two colleagues. I went there to save them and killed a few people. That’s why I have a red name.”
She smiled sweetly, “This morning, the most popular post on the forum was that ‘Don’t take your temper to challenge me – remember this story of me against an underworld boss’, wasn’t it posted by you? I didn’t look into it carefully. It seemed to be a PK video in the field. That should be you, right?”
“So, you already know about it. By the way, when you went home last night, did anything happen?”
She looked distracted and then bit her lips, “Let’s not talk about it. Oh, right, I heard that in the individual competition, besides the original reward, there will be also money rewards. The champion will get a reward of 500,000 RMB. What’s your plan?”
Seeing her not happy about last night matter, I didn’t push further and just answered, “With so much money, if I could win it, I’ll buy a house and marry a girl. Of course, I want to…”
Murong Shan Shan smirked and teased, “You want to get married so soon, is it that there’s already someone in your heart?”
“Yes. What do you think about that female Cleric from my studio?”
“Want me to tell the truth or lie?”
“Jeez, of course, I want to hear the truth!”
“Well, um… I think if she is willing to marry you, it is simply like a flower plugged into a cow dung…”
After saying that, she put up an innocent look. Her pair of big eyes looked at me glittering.
Shit, to joke at my serious question…
Time passed quickly, and the next round of the match was about to begin already. Murong Shan Shan and I were transferred from the Cathedral at the same time.
This time, my opponent was a level 25 Mage. He should be considered very good. After all, because of the competition, most of the players wouldn’t have time to level up. With his level 25, he would definitely take a spot in the City’s Top-100. Unfortunately, he had to meet me in the second round. I could only say that his luck was very bad.
The Mage laughed creepily, “Brother, can I ask you something? That Green Veggies Temptation, what’s her phone number? Or, her QQ number would also be fine. Could you please tell me?”
I stared blankly and said surprisedly, “You want to date her? I’m worried that you couldn’t stand her. You know, she’s even sleeping with her legs spreading wide open…”
The Mage was heavily sweated, “Uh, it’s not like that. I’m just admiring her. I’ll take my leave now…”
“Oh, you’re not gonna fight?”
“I forfeit, goodbye!”
His shadow flew out of the game venue. This guy returned straight back to the city…
