ZY - Chapter 170- Door locker

"This axe..."

    I frowned, "Are the stats even legit? This is so much higher than Precious Grade purple weapons."

    "Yes."

    Shen Mingxuan opened her eyes wide and smiled, "It really is a great item. Its Strength and Stamina stats are huge and it also adds Attack and Health. Moreover, it also has a huge strength effect which helps to discount the 25% damage increase of sword users. Lin Xi actually you can use this and thrash everyone in this stage. Even Feng Canghai wouldn't dare to compete against you."

    "I rather not..."

    Lin Xi looked around the axe and was still a little reluctant. In the end she said, "The axe's attack speed is too low. Although the stats look good but it isn't suitable for a Warrior like me who adds Agility and Strength. It is more suitable for people who focus on skills like Lu Li?"

    She looked at me, her beautiful eyes were untainted. She just raised the axe and said, "The two of us can use this, I don't want this, do you want it?"


    I was filled with disbelief. I had just joined With You, was she going to give the current best weapon on the server to me? Lin Xi's magnanimity seemed bigger than Ah Fei and I... Instantly I felt ashamed, "Don't, my level is too low and who knows how long till I can use it. I don't want it."

    "Hm..."

    She smiled, "Then let's sell it? And add to the studio's funds?"

    "En, sure."

    All of a sudden, both Shen Mingxuan and Gu Ruyi were happy about it. Especially Shen Mingxuan who smiled happily, "Hoho, doesn't this mean that we would be able to get a large sum of money for our salary?"

    "Right."

    Lin Xi smiled, "You can buy that super expensive makeup that you want!"

    Shen Mingxuan smiled in bliss, "Wouldn't I become as beautiful as a flower?"

    I smiled and didn't say anything.

    Lin Xi started to look at the second item, a pair of exquisite bracers. Its stats appeared in front of our eyes--

    Ice Queen Bracers (Precious Grade)

    Type: Leather Armor

    Defence: 185

    Agility: +100

    Stamina: +88

    Strength: +86

    Effect: Damage absorption +5%

    Effect: Precision, Accuracy +15%

    Effect: Quickness, Attack Speed +20%

    Effect: Toughness, raise user's health by 1800

    Bonus: Raise user's Attack by 25%

    Bonus: Raise user's Defence by 23%

    Required level: 60

    Required gender: Female

     ...

    Although it was Precious Grade and not the legendary Treasure Grade, but these pair were quite good and could be said to be one of the best bracers currently for leather armored players.

    "En!"

    Lin Xi smiled and passed it to Shen Mingxuan, "Come our Archer Queen, these bracers are yours. I hope you can continue to work hard and fight for the prosperity of the human race!"

    Shen Mingxuan burst into a laugh and kissed Lin Xi's cheeks, "Lin Xi you are so cute when you speak like NPCs. If I was a guy I would definitely love you."

    Her face flushed red, "What are you saying, if you don't want it then return it to me!"

    I retracted my gaze from Lin Xi, afraid that it would cause a misunderstanding. Like what Shen Mingxuan said, Lin Xi was just too cute. Moreover, her pronunciation and tone were really accurate like those of voice changers. 

    After which, Lin Xi looked at the third piece of equipment which was that round helmet. It was Rare Grade, so she just tossed it into her bag. After which was the fourth one, that white cape. It shone and inscription light, elegant threads that were made of gold. Just one look and one knew that it wasn't simple, in the end, the stats shocked everyone--

    Ice Queen Cape (Treasure Grade)

    Defence: 325

    Strength: +132

    Agility: +105

    Stamina: +100

    Effect: Reduce damage +5%

    Effect: Heal, health regeneration +125%

    Effect: Ice armor, when attacked, target's attack speed will be reduced by 30% for 1.5 seconds.

    Effect: Toughness, raise user's health by 4500

    Bonus: Raise user's Attack by 45%

    Bonus: Raise user's Defence by 44%

    Required level: 60

    Required gender: Female

     ...

    "Wa..."

    Gu Ruyi opened her mouth, "Treasure Grade cape... Such strong stats, it is... Something that any job can wear right?"

    "Yes."

    Lin Xi smiled, "Out of all the equipment, only capes can be worn by any and there is no difference between leather and armor. So apart from guys, the few of us can equip it."

    I was annoyed, "This Boss's equipment is just too much."

    "That is true..."

    She giggled, "Queen Cape, if a guy cavalry wears it, don't you think it is quite weird?"

    "Right."

    I was speechless, "Then how will you three split it?"

    Gu Ruyi said, "This cape adds Attack and not Magic Attack so I won't want it."

    Shen Mingxuan licked her lips, "I can fight for it but there is no need to, after all my level is lacking. Lin Xi you can have it. As our frontline, the stats are more suitable for you."

    Lin Xi nodded, "Since that is the case then I will accept it. I too feel that I am too squishy. When Lu Li was healing me, I saw how anxious he was.. He couldn't even add enough."

    I laughed, "You noticed?"

    "Yes!"

    "Okay."

    Shen Mingxuan looked at the Ice Queen's disappearing corpse and said, "Unfortunately the Boss only gave us two Treasure Grade equipment and no Guild Creation Token. If not With You would be able to create a guild."

    I was stunned, "We... Want to create a guild?"

    "En."

    Lin Xi nodded, "From what I see, Illusionary Moon's future situation isn't good and the guilds will all start to fight. Whoever starts a guild early would be able to recruit the top rate players. It is really important to gather people in the early game."

    Shen Mingxuan smiled, "Right, we can't remain as the four of us. Once large scale battles occur, we do need a bunch of little brothers."


    Lin Xi looked at me, "Lu Li, you are one of us and you will be a manager in the guild so be prepared. You have no choice on this."

    "Understood boss, I won't disappoint you!"

    I nodded my head and smiled.

    "Okay!"

    Lin Xi raised her left hand and stretched, "It isn't early anymore and is about to reach 12, let's eat something before sleeping. I am going to solo level tomorrow and try to get to level 60. The few of you... Arrange yourselves."

    "Okay."

    I nodded, "Then I... Aiyo, I need to fix the cameras, all of you can go level, I will randomly full around once I finish."

    Shen Mingxuan smiled, "Okay then let's go offline and think about what to eat."

    "En."

    Thus, we returned to the city and once we got back, Lin Xi went to the auction house and sold our Xuan Ice Axe. 

     ...

    I went offline and switched off the aircon in the guard post before walking out with my helmet. I locked the gate in case the aircon inside got stolen and I would die from the heat. I confirmed that the big gate was closed. Looking at the rusty gate, I frowned. Once we were rich, I should ask Lin Xi to change to a more advanced electronic gate.

    I turned around and returned to the villa. I placed my helmet in my room before walking up. The short walk actually caused me to sweat, wow.

    I went upstairs and sat on the sofa. After spending a day with them, we weren't so distant anymore.

    "What now?"

    Lin Xi laid on the sofa opposite me and she spread her long legs. After stretching, "Don't ask me to go out, it is so hot outside, I will get a heatstroke..."

    Shen Mingxuan stared at her, "You didn't say that when we ate fishhead soup, you are obviously just lazy."

    Gu Ruyi smiled, "Why not... We order delivery?"

    "Don't, don't we still have to wait?"

    Shen Mingxuan said, "We still have some handmade noodles, why not.. I cook a few egg noodles."

    I nodded, "Sure, let me taste Shen Mingxuan's cooking. And then I will be mentally prepared about what our future food would be like."

    Lin Xi burst into a laugh, "Wishful thinking, do you think this person will cook everyday? She is definitely doing so because there is a new person today and she wants to perform. Usually, she wouldn't even know where the kitchen is at."

    "Am I so lousy?"

    Shen Mingxuan objected. She stood up and adjusted her skirt, "Okay, I will go cook the noodles. You all can wait for a while and watch tv or something."

    "Okay."

    Lin Xi picked up the control and stopped on an anti japan channel. I closed my eyes and then I heard a vulgar voice, "Why don't you dare to fight me?"

     ...

    Not long later, Shen Mingxuan shouted, "Lu Li, come down to get the noodles!"

    "Coming!"

    I went down and the four bowls were all prepared. Each bowl had an egg and smelled really good. Without eating I knew that her noodle cooking skills were quite good. I carried the noodles up and the four of us wolved down the food on the same table. In the end, the three of them didn't finish, I was the only one that even finished the soup. Instantly they all looked at me with a weird gaze.

    "What are you looking at?"

    I gave a weak opposition, "My contributions in the future will definitely be more than this bowl of noodles okay?"

    Lin Xi and Gu Ruyi burst out laughing.

    "Okay, lock the doors and sleep!"

    I went down and locked the main door. I suddenly felt like I was the head of the family. But I also knew that I had the lowest position in With You and was just the guy locking the door!
