ZY - Chapter 273- Tony appear

Just like that, we continued to noon.

 My experience increased by a huge bunch and I collected around 120+ Flame Spirit Feathers. Level 6 inscription materials were really much difficult to collect and after an entire morning, that was all I got. At 11 am, a voice message spread from the WeChat group, "Someone is treating us to lunch."

 It was from Shen Mingxuan.

 "Oh?"

 Lin Xi was shocked, "Who?"

 I asked, "Who?"

 Shen Mingxuan smiled, "Lu Li you probably don't know him but Lin Xi and Ruyi definitely do. It is the top hairstylist from the fashion designer store opposite, Tony. Do you remember? He did your hair these few times and he charges quite high. However, he does it really well."

 "Oh, I remember."

 Lin Xi smiled, "Why did he suddenly want to trade?"

 "I don't know."

 Shen Mingxuan said, "Maybe because he knows that I am a member of With You and that you are the legendary Lin Xi. He told me that his strength is not bad and wants to know us. He even said that we can level together. He is a Musician and focuses on support."

 "Oh?"

 Lin Xi was stunned, "You agreed?"

 "En, he wants to treat Haidilao. The main thing is that I want to eat too..." Shen Mingxuan said.

 I added, "Shen Mingxuan, did he fall for you?"

 "That is fated..." She really was shameless, "After all, I look so good. Anyways we have nothing to do so let's go eat. Moreover, we always level in a group of four and lack one spot. Let's see his strength. If he is strong we can bring him to level to speed things up."

 "En."

 Lin Xi agreed, "That is true. If he is a Musician, we really need him. Let's go."

 "Ok."

 I nodded, "Then I shall go drive. You two take care of Lin Xi."

 "Okay~~"

 ...

 I went offline and after placing my helmet, I headed towards the garage to drive the car out. Not long later, Shen Mingxuan helped Lin Xi up. I kept the wheelchair and the few of us headed towards the nearby Haidilao.

 Ten minutes later.

 We arrived at the store. Shen Mingxuan pushed Lin Xi while Gu Ruyi and I walked by their sides. When we were about to arrive, a cool-looking young man walked out. He actually looked quite handsome. He wore a T-shirt and checkered sweater and looked really energetic. He smiled towards Lin Xi and Shen Mingxuan, "I finally meet you guys, come in, I have booked a table."

 "En en."

 Shen Mingxuan nodded.

 Tony looked towards me and saw that I was pushing Lin Xi's wheelchair. He frowned, "This is... I have never seen him before?"

 Lin Xi smiled, "Let me introduce him, he is Lu Li, our new member, a Paladin."

 "Oh..."

 Tony smiled and reached out, "Hello."

 "Hello!"

 We waved,
before I retracted my arm. We were both filled with animosity towards one another. I saw how warm he was towards the girls and he saw that my status was quite decent. At least the few of them were willing to bring me out to eat.

 At the table, Shen Mingxuan helped Lin Xi down while Gu Ruyi and her sat to the right.

 "Let's sit casually. I have ordered the dishes and they will come soon."

 Tony walked forwards, using the napkin to wipe the table

 Right at that moment, Lin Xi looked at me, "Lu Li, come over?"

 She tapped the seat next to her.

 I understood and walked over, brushing past Tony and sitting next to Lin Xi. Like that, Tony who thought about getting close to Lin Xi was blocked by me. I was a little touched. At least to Lin Xi I was closer to her than Tony! Of course, maybe I was thinking too much.

 Tony sat next to me and the atmosphere was a little awkward.

 Shen Mingxuan smiled and didn't say a word.

 Gu Ruyi placed her phone down and looked around. The atmosphere was a little weird but one couldn't tell why. She was pure and probably didn't think so much.

 Not long later, the dishes were served and there were all sorts of hotpot dishes.

 "Lin Xi what would you like, I will help you." I turned around and asked.

 Lin Xi smiled, "Help me put in luncheon meat, I will put the others in myself."

 "En en."

 Tony's expression was a little bad, "Eat more meat, the few of you are so thin, you should get fatter to appear healthier."

 Shen Mingxuan said, "Although we know that you are waiting for us to say that we would not be able to marry if we are fat so that you can continue, we won't say it."

 Tony's face was about to turn green and he shook his head, "Really can't flirt... Really can't flirt with you. Shen Mingxuan you really are too good!"

 Shen Mingxuan smiled, 'Scoff, the handsome fellow beside you can't even flirt with me, much less you?"

 "Handsome?"

 "Are you saying me? Sister Shen?"

 "Yes."

 "Thank you!"

 "Hahaha shameless!"

 Tony was a little awkward, "Actually I invited all of you here because I saw Shen Mingxuan's screenshot and knew that you all are With You... I am also playing with a few friends and I am playing a super support job of Musician. I am decently high, level 67 but my friends are busy so I was thinking that if With You needs a support, they can find me. I can add Attack and Defence and also can stun the target."

 "Level 67?"

 Lin Xi smiled, "You are probably quasi first-rate in Linchen County..."

 "En."

 Tony's face turned slightly red, "My friends all say that I am first-rate but I know myself that I am only quasi. As compared to those from Elements and Breaking Dawn, I am lacking a lot."

 I was speechless. Elements and Breaking Dawn's musicians were good? If I recall correctly, I killed those Musicians like chickens. Just one Dark Shadow Jump and they couldn't even throw their skills out. I had no impression of them at all...

 Of course, I couldn't say that, if not Tony would probably flip the hotpot!

 ...

 Lin Xi glanced at Tony and smiled, "Such a Musician can help to raise a party's stats to the next level... Let's add friends in game. when the time is right we can party with you to level or fight bosses."

 "Really?" Tony was delighted.

 "En."

 Lin Xi smiled and nodded.

 Instantly, Tony's face was filled with a smile, "Why not... Tomorrow. I heard that Linchen County's maps are going to fully open. We can just select one to train in."

 "..."

 Lin Xi didn't say anything, probably she didn't know how to reply to his warmth.

 Shen Mingxuan said, "That... Lu Li are you leveling to pick up the Silver Ocean Sword? You shouldn't have time to level right?"

 "En."

 I nodded, "I am partying with another one of my friends, we are really quick so I am indeed not free for party activities."

 "It is okay if the Paladin isn't here."

 Tony smiled, "Even if Lu Li is not here, my Buff's are still really strong. With these and also Lin Xi's lifesteal, we don't need healing and can still kill infinite monsters"

 I was stunned, was he trying to kick me out? Wow Tony, not only were you good at cutting hair, your ability to sow discord was decent too!

 In the end, Lin Xi shook her head, "Let's just wait for Lu Li. After all, there might be Bosses and without a Paladin it is impossible."

 "Right."

 Shen Mingxuan smiled, "Moreover, Lu Li is our core member. Without him, we basically won't party to level together."

 Gu Ruyi nodded, "En, right!'

 I laughed deep down. Lin Xi and Shen Mingxuan were smart so they obviously knew what Tony was thinking. They banded together to object to him. Gu Ruyi naturally listened to them so all of them rejected him.

 All of a sudden, I felt warmth in my heart. They helped me to say things that I couldn't say myself. Tony and my difference in With You could see right away.

 "Eat eat."

 I cooked dishes and then looked at the waiter, "Have we ordered top quality beef? If not then we would like one. "

 "Okay Mr Handsome."

 Tony's face turned even worse.

 ...

 After dinner, Tony drove a red mustang and he wanted to send us back. We all rejected him and he didn't have the face to tailgate us. I also didn't give him the chance, zooming off from the carpark so that he couldn't catch up.

 Second floor of the studio.

 I sat on the sofa and drank milk tea, "Will we train with Tony in the future?"

 "Why, you feel danger?" Lin Xi smiled towards me.

 "En."

 I looked at her and said, "I have a feeling that someone actually dares to trouble Tai Sui Ye...

 She giggled, "Tai Sui Ye is the god of the seasons, you are not."

 "You even know that..."

 I was defeated.

 On the side, Shen Mingxuan and Ruyi drank their milk tea. Shen Mingxuan smiled, "Even if we level with him, he is not from With You so what are you worried about? Dumb..."

 I was triggered, "Some people went to watch a show but got insta killed by July Wildfire, who is the dumb one!"

 "You jerk, I am going to fight you. You even dare to bring that up!"

 "Haha~~"
