ZY - Chapter 322- Heart pain
Night, Linchen County.
People went to and fro the square and many of them were forming parties while some were strolling between the shops to look for the equipment that they wanted.
With You had returned from Hedong County and Linchen County's blade-like infrastructure felt much more familiar.
"How are we going to solve dinner?"
Shen Mingxuan held her bow and smiled, "We gained a lot this afternoon right? Not only did we gain 30 thousand dollars, we also made friends and invited them to join With You in advance. Why not we... Go out and celebrate?"
Lin Xi turned around and looked towards Gu Ruyi and I, "What do all of you want to eat?"
Gu Ruyi blinked, "I can listen to all of you."
I said, "Big Bone Claypot or Haidilao, next would be sour vegetable soup. You can choose."
Lin Xi smiled, "Then Haidilao then, it feels like we haven't eaten that in so long... I miss my prawn paste..."
Shen Mingxuan was speechless, "It has just been a week... Okay, Haidilao then. I have booked a seat. We can stroll around and leave an hour later."
Shen Mingxuan went to fix her equipment after booking the table while Gu Ruyi went to the job training place. Lin Xi walked around and then looked at me, "Lu Li do you want to walk with me?"
I nodded and followed behind her to accompany her through the stalls. At the same time, I activated Shifang Flame Spiral Eye to see if there were any new treasures. In the end, the players around looked over in envy. Someone who was able to walk side by side with Lin Xi naturally attracted a lot of envy.
"Aiyo, isn't this beauty Lin Xi?"
In the crowd, an uncle's gaze shook, "I got a sword from Purgatory Demon Realm which is covered in red flames. It might be the legendary Legacy Realm equipment,
would you like to take a look?"
Lin Xi smiled, "No need, thank you..."
I glanced. What red equipment, it was just a Precious Grade purple equipment. To most players, a purpple piece of equipment was rare but to people like Lin Xi and I, it was far from what we needed. The equipment we wore were at least Unique Grade orange.
Thinking about that, I couldn't help but feel a little sad. My Assassin's equipment hadn't changed in such a long time because my skills were basically blacked out. Dark Shadow Jump+Bloodthirst Banner strategy failed which meant that I couldn't fight orange Bosses alone, so... In the short run, if the Spiritual Ruin didn't awaken, it would be tough for my Assassin account to get new gear. Such a sad story.
"Lin Xi, why don't you look at that red sword?" I smiled and asked.
"What is there to look that..."
Lin Xi smiled, "Current players don't have the ability to kill red Legacy Grade Bosses so how can they get Legacy Grade equipment. All these people are just liars."
"Right." I nodded.
"But that person..."
Lin Xi looked towards me and said, "If it is July Wildfire... He has too many methods, maybe he can get a red equipment, but... Even if he can, he will probably get August End to sell it. So this person's unappraised equipment are most probably fake."
I nodded, "I think so too."
Not long later, time was up. We went offline and headed towards Haidilao.
As usual, Haidilao's business was still really good. But we had already booked so we were able to enter in just a few minutes. We still got a four person table.
A few minutes later.
"What activity do we have tonight?" Shen Mingxuan cooked some vegetables while asking.
"No activity, do what you all want..."
Lin Xi smiled, "I want to head to red valley, which one of you want to follow me?"
"Me me me~~~"
Shen Mingxuan and Gu Ruyi raised their hands.
I laughed, "Not me, I want to train alone. I chase the skies of freedom."
Lin Xi laughed, "That's good, I will bring Mingxuan and Gu Ruyi to train. You can train alone."
I stood up, "Lin Xi, what sauces do you want? Should I help you like last time."
She smiled, "Thank you Lu Li!"
"Why are are you being so polite!"
"Me too, I want too!" Shen Mingxuan and Gu Ruyi said together.
"Same flavor?" My scalp felt numb.
I went to make the sauces and made four at once. These people were so lazy that they didn't want to make their own. I was different, I wanted to taste of the beef, the spice of the small chilli, the fragrance of the coriander, the balance of the vinegar. I had to have all of them. I was a true foodie, a guy that truly knew how to live life.
After a full meal, I felt really satisfied.
"Time to go, go and level!"
Shen Mingxuan pushed the wheelchair and smiled, "Lin Xi, hug me!"
Lin Xi hugged her and then Shen Mingxuan placed her down onto the wheelchair, "Okay, no need to help me, I can push it into the lift."
"Okay, you do it yourself!" Shen Mingxuan smiled.
The server led the way and smiled, "Beautiful please come this way, the exit elevator is over here."
I followed behind and looked at my phone. Linchen County's forums were filled with news and different types of treasures and hidden skills.
Right when I was using my phone, there were people quarelling right in front.
A middle aged man that walked out of the bathroom walked out with his face flushed red. He pushed aside the server and stumbled on Lin Xi's wheelchair. He opened his eyes, 'Damn... Annoying, I actually knocked into a cripple!"
"You... How can you be like that? !" Shen Mingxuan raged.
"I knocked into you by accident, so what?"
The middle aged man's face was filled with arrogance as he kicked the handle. With a "peng", he forced Lin Xi to retract her hand.
All of a sudden, rage covered my heart. I didn't care and punched right into his stomach. He flew into the air and smashed onto the wall behind him. Liquid spurted out of his mouth.
On the side, a teen in a tuxedo helped the drunk guy and his face was filled with shock, "Boss Xu, are you okay? Are... You okay?"
The drunk guy pushed him aside and shouted towards me, "You, are you asking for death? Do you know who I am? Come, touch me again if you dare!"
I slapped his body loudly and the kicked the back of his leg that made him kneel in front of the wheelchair. I grabbed his remaining few pieces of hair and said coldly, "Apologise, apologise to the person on the wheelchair!"
He shouted in rage, "She is handicapped! So what if she is beautiful, she is still handicapped. Did I say something wrong?"
I slapped him and instantly both sides of his faces were red. He spat onto the ground and a stench filled the entire walkway.
"Lu Li, stop..."
Shen Mingxuan pulled my arm, "Let's go, let's not cause trouble..."
"En, you bring Lin Xi."
Gu Ruyi and her pushed Lin Xi into the elevator while I kicked the drunk guy in the butt.
Carpark, inside the car.
"Your hand... Is it okay?"
I looked at Lin Xi's hand and frowned, "I saw... That he kicked you..."
Lin Xi rubbed it and said, "Lu Li, you didn't have to do that."
"..." I didn't say a word.
Shen Mingxuan looked at me, "Lu Li, your eyes are red..."
I lowered my head and didn't dare to look at them, "I feel heart pain... I can't allow... Someone to bully Lin Xi like this, I can't..."
"It is okay..."
Lin Xi help my hand, "I am fine..."
Shen Mingxuan's eyes flushed red, "There were similar experiences before. Those people don't know how to respect others, we are a few girls... There is nothing we can do."
I raised my head and looked at Lin Xi and then at Shen Mingxuan and Gu Ruyi, "From now onwards, I will protect all of you. Before all of you marry, I will protect you."
"Is that true?"
Lin Xi smiled, not knowing if she was happy or touched.
"En, my words can be trusted."
Shen Mingxuan smiled, "Lu Li... You seem different today, the most courageous person in With You is you..."
"Aren't I the only guy in With You?"
Those words made everyone laugh. I held Lin Xi's hand and shone it to see a patch of bruises, "After we get back let's wipe it and it will be okay soon."
Lin Xi smiled sweetly, "Time to go home."
