Heheh, hopefully your words come true.
Bell was kicked from the party by Night Wolf.
Of course this was only understood by people who had a grasp on the situation. In front of the team, this was how Night Wolf acted:
【Party】NightWolf: I’m very sorry, my wife forgot how to do this raid. With her current condition, doing this raid is a little tough for her, we’ll let her rest ok? Just deduct the DKP from me.
【Party】Bell: Sorry sorry sorry, I didn’t mean to do that %>_<% Please don’t deduct my husband’s DKP, deduct it from me. If I don’t have enough then please let me owe it first T___T
【Party】MourningMo: It’s me who didn’t consider it properly. Forcing Bell to join, I’m also responsible.
【Party】DevotedCouple: No need to deduct DKP, old Wolf can just pay for the repair fees, it’ll be fine.
【Party】FlowerHouse: Ah, Sister DC is fishing in troubled waters, but… please pay repair fees +1
【Party】LittleBottomDon’tRunAway: Please pay repair fees +2
【Party】CuteEgg: Please pay repair fees +10086!!!
【Party】NightWolf: No problem, I’ll pay for the entire team’s repair fees today.
The party chat was full of “Brother Wolf is mighty!”, “Old Wolf bansai!” and other such phrases for a moment.
Everyone, while ridiculing Night Wolf, did not forget to console Bell.
【Whisper】MourningMo: Bell, are you ok? Don’t worry too much, nobody is blaming you. They’re just joking with old Wolf.
【Whisper】Bell: It’s all my fault, just let my husband pay for it. Otherwise, I’ll feel guilty >_<
【Whisper】FlowerHouse: It’s my fault, I should have reminded you earlier.
【Whisper】Bell: No such thing! I clicked it wrongly myself. Flower, don’t feel guilty, if not I’ll feel even guiltier!
【Whisper】DevotedCouple: We’ll still bring you on the next dungeon. You’ll disturb Snoring Awareness again after we defeat the boss, then we’ll save on the repair fees for that day again.
【Whisper】Bell: … I will follow the team’s instructions, and carry them out to the best of my abilities!
【Whisper】NightWolf: Congratulations. You’ve again increased your debt, what’s there to be happy about?
【Whisper】Bell: I won’t be able to pay it back anyway, so an increment doesn’t affect me. I’ve cost you money, husband ~~~~╭(╯3╰)╮
【Whisper】NightWolf: You actually did it on purpose, didn’t you? Now, you can go meet your lover secretly.
【Whisper】Bell: Aiyah, how mean. I’ve been found out by you.
【Whisper】NightWolf: But your adultery partner doesn’t seem to be online today.
【Whisper】Bell: You’re so concerned about him? He’s out, he’ll only be back next week. Do you want to take advantage of this opportunity? XD
For the past few nights when the guild was raiding, Ling Yang would always hang out with LuomingWind. Any news to do with the god would always spread very quickly on the server, and almost everyone knew that Night Wolf’s wife had disappeared after cheating a huge sum of money. When she re-appeared again, she then also seduced the god, and within a short period of time all sorts of rumours were flying around.
【Whisper】NightWolf: You better know your limits.
【Whisper】Bell: Hubby, you’re getting jealous again.
【Whisper】NightWolf: You’re not allowed to call me hubby in private.
【Whisper】Bell: But you were the one forcing me to be your wife.
【Whisper】NightWolf: That’s in front of others. In private, no matter how well you perform there’s still no overtime pay.
【Whisper】Bell: I’m the same both inside and out~
【Whisper】NightWolf: Shut your mouth, you’re not allowed to fool around.
【Whisper】Bell: I won’t I won’t I won’t~~~~~~~~~~~
【Whisper】NightWolf: Why are you so chatty?
【Whisper】Bell: You can’t stand it? If you can’t stand it you can divorce your wife.
【Whisper】NightWolf: You’re provoking me on purpose, aren’t you? I won’t fall for this.
【Whisper】Bell: Fine, I admit I’m trying to push your limits so as to make you want to break up with me.
【Whisper】NightWolf: That’s impossible, stop daydreaming.
Ling Yang was about to put in more effort in teasing Night Wolf, but a message telling him his friend was online attracted his attention.
【System】Your friend <LuoMingWind> is online.
【Whisper】Bell: Didn’t you go for the training camp?
【Whisper】LuoMingWind: I brought my laptop, there’s internet available at the guesthouse.
【Whisper】Bell: Seems like the conditions aren’t too bad. I still thought you guys were sleeping on mats in the sports hall.
【Whisper】LuoMingWind: Heheh, you’ve read too many mangas, to do that you’ll still have to bring mats.
Ling Yang was chatting while foraging. Suddenly, he discovered his character had been attacked and could not longer move. He then received a system message, that another player was attacking him.
This was a sort of archetype that could turn invisible and freeze people from the back. There was only one such type in the game, and that was the shadow archetype warrior.
The cleric that Ling Yang used was the least afraid of warriors. Whether it was the fury archetype, monk archetype, shadow archetype or whatsoever, when fighting them it was just like chopping melons or vegetables. According to previous encounters, Ling Yang’s little finger only had to move a little and the other party was defeated.
That shadow warrior really had too much time on his hands to do a sneak attack on a cleric.
Ling Yang snorted as he thought, the tiger isn’t demonstrating its power, and so you’re treating me like a little antelope?
So with a few clicks he demonstrated his abilities and threw out a few skills.
Before his third attack could land, he died.
【Local】Bell: Cough, it was a technical error, technical error.
Ling Yang embarrassedly apologised to the other party.
【Local】HandsomePeng:… I’ve seen stupid people, but I’ve never seen anyone as stupid as you.
LingYang again felt the urge to hit his keyboard with his head.
【Local】Bell: I’ve already said it was an error! An error! I’m very skilled ok!
【System】<HandsomePeng> wants to revive you with the revival scroll, do you accept? Confirm/Cancel
Ling Yang selected confirm.
Both of them refilled their mana. HandsomePeng slowly faded away in front of Bell, then immediately froze him from behind again.
This time Ling Yang’s reaction was faster. Once he unfroze himself he threw a HOT on himself, then he started attacking.
This time he only managed to attack twice before dying.
【Local】Bell: Ah… You’re using a cheat!
【Local】HandsomePeng: You’re the one using a cheat!
【Local】Bell: Then how could you kill me twice in a row?
【Local】HandsomePeng: Looking at your skills just now, this is expected. It would only be abnormal if I was killed twice by you.
【Local】Bell: How could that be… I’m supposed to be skilled…
【Local】HandsomePeng: I’ve never solo-P with you before, but everyone said that you’re were decent at raiding. Now that I’ve seen it, this should only be a rumour.
【Local】Bell: Eh? You know me?
【Local】HandsomePeng: You don’t know me?
LingYang tilted his head. Why wass this question so familiar? It seemed like the first thing Night Wolf said to him was also this sentence…
Could it be????
【Local】Bell: You’re also my husband???
【Local】HandsomePeng: Fuck off! Who is your husband, you ladyboy!
【Local】Bell: Ah, then that’s fine, that’s fine.
LingYang patted his chest, he was really afraid that the previous Bell had again handed him another problem from the past.
【Local】Bell:You must not have been online recently.
【Local】HandsomePeng: Yes, I’ve been busy these days, so I didn’t play.
【Local】Bell: Too bad, you missed the epic drama where I was proven innocent.
【Local】Bell: I was hacked last month.
【Local】HandsomePeng: This excuse is too lousy…
【Local】HandsomePeng: Then how do you explain taking so long to recover your account, and also not even recognising me?
【Local】Bell: I was in a car accident! I lost my memory!
【Local】HandsomePeng: What the fuck is this lousy excuse…
【Local】Bell: You’re not the one deciding if the excuse is lousy, people can decide for themselves!
【Local】Bell:If you don’t believe you can ask around. LuomingWind was the one who guaranteed for me!
【Local】HandsomePeng: You’re lying again. You’re from rival guilds, why would he guarantee for you?
【Local】Bell: Like I’ll waste my energy lying to you!
His monitor turned white. Night Wolf had arrived using the couple ability.
【Local】HandsomePeng: Then you must be cheating with him.
【Local】Bell: Don’t teleport over halfway through the conversation! >皿<
【Whisper】NightWolf: Because the things you said are too shameless for me to see?
【Whisper】Bell: It’s not a good habit to randomly infer from sentences!
【Whisper】NightWolf: Words that I didn’t hear I can fill them in myself.
【Whisper】Bell: ……. It’s completely different from what you filled in!
【Local】HandsomePeng: Hi, it’s you.
【Local】NightWolf: It’s me.
Night Wolf performed a warcry to buff his damage. Swinging his spear he defeated Handsome Peng in two strokes.
Although he was a defensive warrior without much combat ability, with the support of his gear, and with how the other party did not seem to want to retaliate, killed by Night Wolf like this, Ling Yang who had been twice defeated by him did not know what to feel.
【Local】Bell: … Hubby what are you doing?
【Local】NightWolf: Didn’t he kill you twice just now? Both the couple system and guild chat announced it.
【Local】Bell: Uhh… This is a long story.
【Local】HandsomePeng: He’s a ladyboy.
【Local】Bell:How many times do you need me to say before you believe I was hacked (＃｀皿′)
【Local】NightWolf: I know very well if my wife is a ladyboy or not. There’s no need for outsiders to worry, what’s more it’s you.
【Local】HandsomePeng: We’re now both buddies on the same boat, but you’re not on my side?
Ling Yang thought, what the fuck, what kind of emotional development is this?
【Local】NightWolf: Who is on the same boat as you? I haven’t settled your account with you yet.
【Local】HandsomePeng: Bro you can’t be like this, you should be able to empathise with me the most right? We’re both victims of ladyboy wives.
Ling Yang was stunned when he saw this. He could not help but look at his head. Just below HandsomePeng’s name, there was a line of words.
Just now, Ling Yang’s attention was fully on the chat window, and this line of words did not attract his attention. Now, after looking at it carefully, he then discovered his title was actually <FlowerHouse’s husband>.
【Local】Bell: You’re Flower’s husband?
【Local】HandsomePeng: You’ve recovered your memories?
【Local】Bell: … Then why did you still kill me!
【Local】HandsomePeng: Who is that ladyboy’s husband? Don’t you know I hate ladyboys the most?!
【Local】Bell: Then why did you marry him in the first place?
【Local】HandsomePeng: How would I know that that girl was a ladyboy then!
【Local】Bell: Did Flower ever said he was a girl?
With Ling Yang’s understanding of FlowerHouse over the past few days, he was definitely not the type to pretend he was a girl.
【Local】HandsomePeng: Never, but he is playing a female account. Isn’t this a ladyboy?
【Local】Bell: But he’s called FlowerHouse.
【Local】HandsomePeng: So what? This name is so girly, everyone would misunderstand.
【Local】Bell: No, then do you think Little Phoenix Lu is a guy or a girl?
【Local】HandsomePeng: Of course it’s a girl, this name is even more girly alright?!1
【Local】Bell: Hubby, is this person from the same planet as us?
【Local】NightWolf: You don’t have to talk so much crap with him.
While Ling Yang was still talking nonsense over here, over there, members of Handsome Peng’s Hot-Blooded Guild, after seeing the announcement of Handsome Peng’s death on the guild chat, had teamed up and come over. They sent the refugee couple, Night Wolf and Bell, to the netherworld.
Passionate Sword’s people, after seeing their main tank and his wife get murdered, they stopped raiding and ran there to start a group fight with them. Both groups fought non-stop.
Handsome Peng, after being revived, saw that FlowerHouse was also there. So, he kept chasing and attacking him, FlowerHouse was better at PVE, and his PK skill was not very good. With how he was getting continuously attacked by Handsome Peng, even LingYang could not bear to watch it any longer.
【Whisper】Bell: Where are you? Come here and intervene.
【Whisper】LuomingWind: I’m not him.
【Whisper】Bell: Faint, where is he?
【Whisper】LuomingWind: He went to take a shower.
【Whisper】Bell: Why didn’t you join him?
【Whisper】LuomingWind: Why do I have to join him!!!!
【Whisper】Bell:Hey Angry T.Rex don’t get angry…
A few minutes passed.
【Whisper】LuoMingWind: I’m back? Why did you bully Angry again? He was fine just now, but now he’s losing his temper again.
【Whisper】Bell: … I don’t bully him as much as you do. If I didn’t know you, I would really be fooled by your gentle appearance.
【Whisper】Bell: Hey let’s not talk about this now. You better come quick, a world war’s about to happen.
【System】Your friend <LuoMingWind> wants to use the friend locator to teleport to you, do you agree? Confirm / Cancel
The god himself came to intervene. As Hot-Blooded Guild had a pretty good relationship with Ninth Heaven LuoMing, they gave him face, leaving quickly.
Passionate Sword’s people, although not on good terms with LuoMing, they also would not gang up on LuoMingWind alone. After hanging around for awhile, they went back to raiding.
【Whisper】HandsomePeng: You really have some status, and the god himself actually guaranteed for you. Forget it, I’ll believe you’re not a ladyboy.
【Whisper】Bell: Hmph, I’ve told you already╭(╯^╰)╮
【Whisper】HandsomePeng: But I don’t believe you didn’t cheat on your husband.
【Whisper】Bell:What the fuck (ノ｀Д′)ノ︵┻━┻
The more LingY ang thought about it, the more he felt that he was unlucky today. He got kicked while raiding, and abused while PK-ing in the wild. He could not help but think, he could probably challenge the No. 1 spot on the server’s most distressed list. Nothing could be worse than his current situation.
He called out to the heavens. Where is my Golden Finger? Where is my protagonist halo?
As though hearing his prayers, a player appeared on his screen and started happily running towards him.
Ling Yang noticed the player’s name. When he rubbed his eyes and confirmed it again, an ominous feeling welled up in him.
His right hand flew towards the ESC button, bringing up the system menu, and he was ready to go offline.
But he was still too slow. That player was already in front of Bell, and he happily called out:
