Chapter 32 – Racial Discrimination is Intolerable


<Pale Soul OL> Forum Game Discussion

Topic: New Content Mentioned By Developers During The Weekend’s Meet-and-Greet
Poster: Scout
Content: I’ve summarised it below, if there is anything missing please mention it too:

– New 25-man party dungeon (apparently it’s going to be very difficult);
– New arena ladder (Season 2) will be released together with S2 new outfits;
– A 100men arena, with both solo and group mode, challenge and survival mode, details not provided;
– Quiz, 6pm every night a question will be added, the developers may have over ten thousand questions;
– Can exchange items for reputation, seems like a ranking system, but accepted items are randomised;
– New categories on ladders, with total points, battle points and literature points, there would also be a couple ladder, based on the couple’s relationship, this is probably to sell something, as well as the reputation ranking;
– Heard that some daily tasks may also be added just for fun.

——————————————————————————-


【System】<NightWolf> is now online.

 

【Whisper】Bell: Hubby~~~~~~~

【Whisper】Bell: Ah no no, it’s Hubby~~~

【Whisper】Bell: I accidentally dragged the line too long, you didn’t see anything!

【Whisper】Bell: Wuwuwu don’t lock me up!!

 

Coming online, this was the scene Ye Lang came across. Looking at the words, he could imagine that person getting flustered, and for once, Ye Lang, who was always very reserved, was amused.
But his mood today was not too bad, so he did not plan on locking the other person in the little dark house.

 

【Whisper】NightWolf: Sure, I won’t lock you up today.

 

【Party】<NightWolf> has joined the party.

【Party】Bell: Hubby, was the meet-and-greet today fun?

【Party】NightWolf: It was fine.

 

Ling Yang clicked his tongue. What sort of answer was this?

 

【Party】Bell: Did you see any of the developers? What did they say?

【Party】NightWolf: I didn’t see any.

【Party】Bell: Eh? Then what did you do there?

【Party】NightWolf: To meet the guild members.

【Party】Bell: =。= You’re all schoolmates, you can just meet in school. Why waste the effort to go for the meet-and-greet.

【Party】NightWolf: There are some we’ve never met before as well.

【Party】Bell: Like?

【Party】NightWolf: I met Uncle He.

【Party】Bell: Oh Angry T.Rex (⊙o⊙) Is he very scary?

【Party】NightWolf: He looks like he’s decent at fighting.

 

He was not decent at fighting, he was pretty good at fighting, ok?!

 

【Party】Bell: Who else?

【Party】NightWolf: I saw your adulterer in crime.

【Party】Bell: ……

【Party】NightWolf: He looks even more deserving of a beating offline than online.

【Party】Bell: …… We’re completely innocent!

【Party】Bell: Is there anything else?

【Party】NightWolf: Nothing else.

【Party】Bell: Just this? How boring, I still thought you’ll have a love affair or something =。=

【Party】NightWolf: I only attended a meet-and-greet, you think it’s a speed dating event?

 

Ling Yang, who had been left out, scratched the table unhappily. Speed dating whatsoever, he should just go ahead with it!
But this was also good. As he himself was currently the target of the other party’s suspicions, it was better to be less conspicuous.
Right, he had to update his teammates with some information…
  
As both of them did not come online in the day, they partied together to complete the daily tasks.
It might be Ling Yang’s misconception, but Night Wolf seemed to be chattier than usual today. Although it was just a little more than usual, it seemed to imply that the mood of the account owner was better than normal.

 

【Party】Bell: Hubby, you seem to be in a pretty good mood today?

【Party】NightWolf: How could you tell?

【Party】Bell: Oh, it’s my intuition?

【Party】NightWolf: They say that the female intuition is very accurate, could it be that you’re a female?

【Party】Bell: I’m so sorry, with regards to this matter, I can only disappoint you forever ╮(╯▽╰)╭

 

Ye Lang saw the conversation on the screen, and he could not help but ask a question he had been wanting to ask for very long.

 

【Party】NightWolf: You really like guys?

【Party】Bell: How mean. Until now, Hubby is still suspecting my sincere heart ╭(╯^╰)╮

【Party】NightWolf: You’re all guys too, but how come you can call someone of the same gender hubby so naturally? Don’t you find it uncomfortable?

 

Ling Yang knew that he was not only referring to himself, but also that ex-wife who cheated Ye Lang’s feelings. He was very dissatisfied to be lumped together with a scammer.
How could calling someone husband for the sake of scamming be the same as calling someone husband because of love? He did this all because of love, of love!

 

【Party】Bell: Why can’t guys use hubby, don’t you know that there are guys who are born like guys? Could it be that Hubby, you’re homophobic?

【Party】NightWolf: You also know about FlowerHouse’s sexual orientation. I’ve known him since elementary school, and he’s also considered my closest friend.

【Party】Bell: (⊙o⊙) Then why didn’t you get bent?

【Party】NightWolf: What logic is that, were your childhood friends all bent by you?

【Party】Bell: Childhood friends are meant to be bent ╮(╯▽╰)╭

【Party】NightWolf: There’s a very famous saying in your circle.

【Party】Bell: What saying?

【Party】NightWolf: “I’m not a homosexual, it just happens that the person I like is of the same gender.”

【Party】Bell: There is this saying, but it seems like a lousy excuse. Also, I don’t really agree with it.

【Party】NightWolf: This sentence is very suitable for me though.

【Party】Bell: What do you mean? Could it be you…??

【Party】NightWolf: I’m not prejudiced against homosexuals, it just happens that you’re the person I’m prejudiced against.

【Party】Bell: … Hubby, don’t be like this(/TДT)/

 

Ling Yang still wanted to continue discussing this with Ye Lang, but he suddenly heard the sound of a door unlocking. He knew that Xu Xian had returned, and so hurriedly found an excuse to go offline.

 

【Party】Bell: Ah, the counsellor is doing a check, I’ll go offline first.

【Party】Bell: Goodnight Hubby, muacks╭(╯3╰)╮

 

【System】<Bell> is now offline.

 

Ye Lang saw the time displayed on the bottom right corner of the screen. Their counselor was really hardworking, to still do checks at this time of the night.
But this meant that Bell was staying in a dormitory?
  
Ye Lang was still pondering over this when Little Buckle sent a whisper.

 

【Whisper】Husband,PleaseDoItGently: Hello Master’s Husband~~~~~~~

【Whisper】NightWolf: The both of your tilde lines, who was the one who originated this?

【Whisper】Husband,PleaseDoItGently: What? What do you mean?

【Whisper】NightWolf: Nothing, is there anything?

【Whisper】Husband,PleaseDoItGently: I just came online to look for Master, but Master went offline. Where did he go?

【Whisper】NightWolf: He said his counsellor is doing a sudden spot check.

【Whisper】Husband,PleaseDoItGently: A spot check??????

【Whisper】NightWolf: Is there a problem?

【Whisper】Husband,PleaseDoItGently: … No, I just think that this counsellor is really hardworking, it’s nearly 10pm already.

【Whisper】NightWolf: Or maybe because the counsellors in your school have better pay?

【Whisper】Husband,PleaseDoItGently: Oh heheheheh, how funny. Then I won’t disturb you anymore, Master’s Husband~ bye~~~

【Whisper】NightWolf: Hold on!

【Whisper】Husband,PleaseDoItGently: Master’s Husband has something to ask?

【Whisper】NightWolf: Do you know about your master’s hand injury?

【Whisper】Husband,PleaseDoItGently: Of course I know! I know everything about Master!

【Whisper】NightWolf: Which finger did he injure?

【Whisper】Husband,PleaseDoItGently: Master’s Husband, why are you asking this?

【Whisper】NightWolf: I want to let him participate in some guild activities, but I’m not sure if his body condition would allow it.

【Whisper】Husband,PleaseDoItGently: Oh, so it’s like this! He injured his little finger on his left, it won’t affect anything!

Upon entering the house, Xu Xian immediately saw Ling Yang placing the slippers in front of him. The only thing missing was a wagging tail.
“… Yangyang, what is this for?”
“Heiheiheiheiheiheiheihei, Flower you’ve worked hard, but you’re back so early. Look at the time now, Little White Dragon’s speed is really fast.” The last part of the sentence was mumbled by Ling Yang.
“What did you say? Also, can you stop smiling like that? It’s giving me the shivers.”
  
Ling Yang hooked his arm around Xu Xian’s neck. “Kiddo, why didn’t you tell me earlier that you’re playing Pale Soul?” You’ve made me go one big round!
“You didn’t tell me as well! Also, with your hand disabled, who would have thought you could still play games?”
“Don’t be so honest, you’re making me sad. Right, you and your childhood friend actually talked about me before? What did you talk about?”
“Why are you asking about this?” Xu Xian was alarmed. “Could it be today you…?”
“Heiheiheiheiheiheiheihei.”
“You’re not allowed to laugh like that!” Xu Xian felt goosebumps appearing on his skin. “Didn’t you say you wouldn’t target straight guys with wives?”
That’s right, but I’m his wife! Ling Yang happily shouted in his heart. How he wished he could make Little White Dragon write these words out in calligraphy and display it on his wall.
  
“You also didn’t mention that his wife only existed online.”
“He even told you about this? But does this matter? His relationship with his wife is very good, they’ve been together for nearly 6 months already.”
“Do you know if his online wife is a guy or a girl? Round or flat? As long as they never meet in real life, then there’s a possibility for anything to happen!”
“Hey!”
Ling Yang completely understood Xu Xian’s sharp mouth but soft hearted character. Grasping onto his neck, he headed towards the bedroom. “Come come, let’s have a talk in the house, especially about what you’ve told him about me, repeat them word for word to me…”
  
  ※
  
Ye Lang was halfway through his daily tasks. He was also too lazy to form another party, and so he decided to slowly kill all the monsters himself. Although solo-ing as a guardian warrior would require a bit more effort, he was already used to it.
When one-third of his hp was gone, and the monsters only had one-third of their hp left, a wave of energy came from a distance, killing all the monsters surrounding Night Wolf immediately.
Ye Lang shifted his cursor. One really could not avoid meeting their enemies. Luoming Wind, who happened to also be doing his daily tasks, had appeared.

 

【Local】LuomingWind: Yo, my love rival is so patient, coming by himself to kill monsters. Why didn’t your wife accompany you?

 

Ye Lang could not be bothered with him. Summoning his horse, he was ready to leave.

 

【Whisper】LuomingWind: I’m just talking. Don’t mind me, have you finished your tasks? If you haven’t, I can help you with them.

【Whisper】NightWolf: There’s no need to trouble yourself.

【Whisper】LuomingWind: Don’t be so cold, Bell will soon be part of my team, so you’re also considered a family member of the team. We’re always very courteous to family members.

【Whisper】NightWolf: You don’t have to pretend to be a gentleman in front of me.

【Whisper】LuomingWind: Heheh, love rival, you’re so interesting. Too bad I couldn’t have a good chat with you today.

 

Luoming Wind’s words reminded Ye Lang about today’s happenings. He did not know why, but his good mood vanished quickly.  

 

【Whisper】LuomingWind: I heard that your main healer has left your guild, are you in need of clerics now? Don’t forget our agreement, Bell will be part of our team for the upcoming dungeon, I hope you won’t go back on your words.

【Whisper】NightWolf: He’s injured, letting him join you, aren’t you afraid of his injury repeating again?

【Whisper】LuomingWind: You’re so concerned? Relax, he has recovered very well, I’ve checked it out myself.

 

Ye Lang snorted coldly.

 

【Whisper】NightWolf: According to my understanding, it’s not that easy to recover from a broken bone, right? What’s more, the index finger tends to be used more often as well.

【Whisper】LuomingWind: Index finger? Is that what he told you? Heh, did you fall for his lies again? Bell’s injury is on his left little finger 🙂

 

The three people all said that Bell’s injury was on his left little finger. Even if all three of them were lying constantly, with regards to this matter, they were very consistent about it. Also, from their tones, they did not seem to be lying.
So, Bell really injured his left little finger?
Ye Lang was still a little doubtful. He still needed to confirm it with Xu Xian before he could come to a conclusion.
  
As though possessed, Ye Lang opened his social panel and added Luoming Shadow to his friends list.
Luoming Shadow was currently offline, his name in grey. Ye Lang silently looked at this name for awhile. He himself could also not explain his own actions.
