Seems like someone got his way, congratulations on passing your probation ~\(≧▽≦)/~ but it seems like you weren’t on probation for too long, I hate you!
Having died once under the hand of FlowerHouse, Handsome Peng got wise, and he never accepted his summon again. But Ling Yang also expected that this would happen, and so he also did not let FlowerHouse use the ‘Inseparable Lovers’ skill to summon him too.
But each time when Handsome Peng came online to do his ‘daily quest’, all sorts of curious things happened.
Once, just as he teleported over, the other party happened to be playing with a Gunpowder Robot that could be crafted. He did not have the time to react, and the robot self-detonated, blowing him up as well. However, FlowerHouse had consumed an 8-second invincible pill that could be purchased on the market just as the robot exploded, and he was completely uninjured.
Also, once, when he teleported over, FlowerHouse was actually deep in the sea. Having drank the potion to breath underwater, he was swimming around like a mermaid. Handsome Peng swam upwards with all his might, but this distance seem to have be calculated by the other person. He finally drowned to death ten yards away from the surface of the sea.
The worst was when the person was standing next to a glitch he did not know about, and he teleported, only to get stuck there. He could not move, could not use his skills, could not use his weapon, and he was there for over an hour before a GM could pull him out.
Anyway this experience online during the school break was Handsome Peng’s history written in blood and tears. It was enough to write a book called <Handsome Peng’s Sufferings>.
Even worse was that they had recorded each instance they had played pranks on him. After editing them together, they then uploaded a video named <100 Ways to Kill Your Husband> online. It was rapidly shared between all major gaming video channels. As the male lead in the video, he was now famous. Some people even created an account on Linshan server to follow him, becoming an annoyance to him.
The conclusion of this mental suffering was that, Handsome Peng no longer dared to look for FlowerHouse to create any more trouble.
Whereas for FlowerHouse, he was very happy during this period of time. But as one of the strategists, Night Wolf was suffering. Because, in this scenario, he was basically the guinea pig. He never knew when his contracted wife, who had declared that he wanted to be a good wife, would kill him using all sorts of bizarre methods.
Night Wolf truly hated it, but he still had to maintain his appearance of a good man who indulged his wife’s nonsense.
He was starting to suspect that Bell was using FlowerHouse’s revenge as an excuse to kill him, but he could not fall out with him. After all the one to suggest and force the other party to be in a relationship was not Bell, but himself.
So he could only grit his teeth and accept it, looking coldly from the sidelines as three female clerics rose in revolution, running around everyday sinisterly, enjoying themselves greatly as they did all sorts of childish things.
Ignoring the fact that these three female clerics were actually guys, one of them was still his childhood friend. If not for the appearance of the new Bell, even Night Wolf himself would not know that his friend of over ten years could be so lively.
Night Wolf knew about FlowerHouse’s sexual orientation, and Bell’s disciple Little Buckle also did not hide his orientation from the start — but truthfully speaking, he did not seem like a guy at all. Whereas for that fellow who could call him hubby without any awkwardness…
Night Wolf did not even want to think about it.
In most games, the repair fees for the warriors’ armour were usually the most expensive. As guardians, their ability to earn money was also poor, so the repair fees for main tanks were usually paid by the guild.
Night Wolf had money, but it did not mean that he would spend it lavishly. Having died a few times under Bell’s hand, the considerable cost of repairing his top-quality armour was now starting to show.
As such, he prepared a macro to quickly swap his gear. Every time he saw Bell he could remove all the equipment with a keystroke, leaving only a loincloth behind and exposing the character’s muscular body. The weapon in his hand also changed to a fishing rod.
After a while, he felt that it was unbecoming, so he randomly bought a pair of black pants to wear. This pants came along with a pair of outlandish shoes, and his upper body was left bare, only with a pair of suspenders. One strap was worn properly while the other slid off his shoulder.
<Pale Soul OL> was a game without any limits. All sorts of modern, classical, western, fantasy, and even satirical outfits could be purchased, it was completely random.
FlowerHouse, after seeing him in that outfit for the first time, laughed for half a day, then insisted that the fishing rod in his hand did not match the outfit. Instead he forced on him an offhand-weapon often used by summoner clerics — a whip. When he held it, he actually looked somewhat like the part.
So the second outfit for swapping was decided just like this.
The other members of the guild all teased him, and gave him a new nickname — S-MT, and they bragged like this to others: “So what if you guys have a MT? We have a S-MT1!”
Whereas Bell did not have any comments, only coming to look for him more often. But Night Wolf naturally thought that the other person was just looking for a chance to practice, coming up with methods on how to kill him.
When Qi Feng returned from his training camp, this was the image he saw. Night Wolf was exposing his upper body while wearing leather pants and military boots, with a whip in his hand. As for Bell, she was in a pink princess-styled dress. There was no need to ask, this was another outfit Night Wolf had purchased for her according to his taste.
This couple standing next to each other, one looking beastly while the other pure. No matter how you looked at it, it looked strange.
【Whisper】LuomingWind: I haven’t seen him in a few days, your labourer has become sexy.
【Whisper】 Bell: You think so too? It’s all thanks to my guidance XD
【Whisper】LuomingWind: Yeah, you’ve done well.
【Whisper】Bell: I forgot to congratulate you for getting what you want ~\(≧▽≦)/~
【Whisper】LuomingWind:I’ll give you a meritorious award too.
【Whisper】Bell: How long have you known Angry T.Rex?
【Whisper】LuomingWind: About 8 years.
【Whisper】 Bell: You only settled him after 8 years? Can I say that you’re too inefficient?
【Whisper】LuomingWind: Oh? Then I know someone, who after 16 years, still didn’t end up with someone. I wonder what would you say about him?
【Whisper】Bell: I was wrong T^T, I think that you’re so amazing for getting Angry T.Rex in only 8 years!
【Whisper】Bell: Do you know, you’re the only person that doesn’t annoy me when you say heheh.
【Whisper】Bell: When others say heheh, they’re usually just secretly thinking ‘fuck you’.
【Whisper】LuoMingWind: Is that so?
【Whisper】Bell: But your heheh, it can mean so many things.
If there was a ranking for crafty, sly people, out of everyone Ling Yang knew, Qi Feng would definitely be number 1. But Ling Yang was not afraid of him, because he posed no threat to Ling Yang. At least till now, both of them were still on the same side.
The person Ling Yang was most afraid of now was his disciple-in-law. When he remembered that school would start in less than a month, he started getting a headache.
【Whisper】Bell: I helped you out as a catalyst, how are you going to thank me?
【Whisper】LuoingWind: I promise you, if there’s any chance in the future, I’ll be your catalyst too.
【Whisper】Bell: … Why does your promise make me break out in shivers?
【Whisper】LuomingWind: Maybe your AC is too strong? I’ll go first, see you on the battlefield tomorrow night.
【Whisper】LuomingWind: Tomorrow’s guild battle, it’s us vs you.
Ling Yang had not participated in a guild battle for very long. The reason was mentioned previously. His previous guild consisted of crazy people and perverts, and no one wanted to have a guild battle with perverts, unless they themselves were perverts too.
Having only a small number of people in the guild was also a reason. After all, there could not be too many perverts in a group. Otherwise, the normal people would not be able to take it.
He went over to the NPC in charge of guild battles and took a look. The battle on the second day was really between Passionate Sword and their nemesis Ninth Heaven LuoMing.
【Party】Bell: It’s the guild battle tomorrow night?
【Party】Bell: I want to go too ~\(≧▽≦)/~
【Party】NightWolf: If I want to hold you back, will I be able to do so?
【Party】Bell:╭(╯^╰)╮Hubby, don’t be like this. I really want to become your better half.
【Party】NightWolf: I can’t afford that. Tomorrow’s battle against your ex-lover. If you don’t become a mole I’ll be offering my gratitude already.
【Party】Bell: Hubby, why are you still jealous?
【Party】NightWolf: Shut up.
【Party】Bell: How would you command the team during the battle?
【Party】Bell: Yay I love going on YY~
【Party】NightWolf: You disable your mic. You’re only allowed to listen, and you’re not allowed to speak.
【Party】Bell: Ah? Like that I’ll suppress myself to death!
【Party】NightWolf: Then suppress yourself to death.
【Party】Bell: Hubby, you’re so heartless（/TДT)/
Actually Ling Yang was only speaking randomly. He was not so stupid as to go onto YY and expose his identity. The main reason being that exposing himself so easily was too boring, and it did not suit his preference for drama.
【Party】Bell: Then, Hubby, will you speak?
【Party】NightWolf: I’m the commander.
【Party】Bell: Our previous commander would sing to encourage everyone’s fighting spirit before every battle!
【Party】NightWolf: The actions of your ward mates are truly different from other normal people.
The more time Ling Yang spent with Night Wolf, the more his temperament improved. Towards Night Wolf’s occasional insults, it was as though he could see a ‘White Lotus’ label appearing on his right sidebar.
Now, faced with Night Wolf’s sarcasm, he was not bothered by it. He happily went to forage and create potions, but these two non-combat skills were newly learnt by him, and the levels were still low. The potions created were not levelled enough to be used in the guild battle.
Luckily the previous Bell had fully levelled her cooking skill, so Ling Yang made a lot of food, taking the opportunity to prepare some for Night Wolf and the offline cleric.
On the second day Xu Xian said he had something on that night, so dinner would be prepared earlier. This suited Ling Yang perfectly.
After dinner, the guild members were eagerly looking forward to the upcoming battle.
Night Wolf also came online earlier than usual. With LingYang’s understanding of Night Wolf, this was supposed to be his dinnertime after finishing his part-time work.
【Party】Bell: So early? Have you eaten?
【Party】NightWolf: I had instant noodles.
Ling Yang felt upset. He himself had not eaten instant noodles in awhile. That carton of instant noodles he bought when moving was still in a corner collecting dust.
Ever since he tasted the food Xu Xian made, he was brought into submission by his cooking ability. When he received his allowance for the month, he immediately repaid the food cost for the previous month automatically, and transferred this month’s portion as well.
Spending his days breezily, Ling Yang felt a deep sympathy for the person who had nothing but instant noodles to eat.
A college student who worked part-time and ate instant noodles, saving his hard-earned money just to buy virtual clothes for Ling Yang, this sense of guilt that could not be relieved…
If he had a chance he really had to give this guy some good advice!
Ling Yang used a YY account that he just registered to join the guild’s YY channel. Night Wolf and the others were already in it.
Everyone only greeted Bell, and no one suggested for him to speak on the mic.
Ling Yang was not surprised by this. In this matter, the previous Bell had prepared a very strong basis for him. No matter the reason he used in the past, it let everyone accept the fact that Bell could not speak on YY.
Thinking about this, Ling Yang could not help but be curious.
【Whisper】Bell: The previous Bell refused to speak on YY, you’ve also never met her before, why are you so certain she’s a girl? Did you never suspect it before?
In this high-tech society where ladyboys were everywhere, Bell’s behaviour would definitely make people suspicious.
【Whisper】NightWolf: We’ve seen each other in video before.
Ling Yang was surprised. He never thought that the two people had met, although it was online.
【Whisper】NightWolf: But it was only once. Thinking about it now, he might have just found a temporary substitute.
【Whisper】Bell: Oh, it’s like this… No wonder… His substitute must have been a great beauty, having enchanted you like this.
Night Wolf was silent for awhile.
【Whisper】 NightWolf: Her looks were quite ordinary. A little delicate, but…
【Whisper】NightWolf:I liked how she looked without make-up.
Ling Yang was astonished.
【Whisper】Bell: Just this?
【Whisper】NightWolf: Most of the women in my workplace have very thick make-up. I’ve seen too many, I don’t like it.
And since young he had been seeing them till now. He was starting to feel averse to it now.
It was said that people had learnt by imprinting as well. Things they were exposed to when young would affect their way of thinking when older, those made-up ladies had also affected Ye Lang’s aesthetic standards, but it was a negative effect.
But Ling Yang was even more surprised. A workplace environment with many thickly made-up women, could he be…?
LingYang’s mental patient’s way of thinking again spread uncontrollably, his complex of liking useless guys started welling up.
【Whisper】Bell: Your ex-wife really understood you…
Even finding a substitute he could find someone suited to Night Wolf’s taste.
【Whisper】NightWolf: I don’t want to hear this ex-wife word.
【Whisper】Bell: ╮(╯▽╰)╭ Look on the bright side, at least you once had a bosom friend.
【Whisper】NightWolf: If this could be considered a bosom friend, I would rather no one understood me.
【Whisper】Bell: Hubby, don’t be sad, At least there’s still me who understands you, /pats head.
【Whisper】NightWolf: Tonight, stand at least 100yards away from me.
【Whisper】NightWolf: I don’t want you to start killing me again out of habit, I will regret it to the point of chopping my hand off.
【Whisper】Bell: Don’t be like this（/TДT)/
Ling Yang wanted to continue, only to hear someone cough on YY. A steady male voice sounded by his ear, “Can you hear this?”
