Chapter 12

Tomorrow, Captain Fang might confess to someone!


Fang Jingxing sent Xie Chengyan a message: Where?

Xie Chengyan quickly sent a reply: Just finished shooting an advertisement, taking a car back.

Fang Jingxing: Did you bring your Wandering Dream equipment?

Xie Chengyan: No, why?

Fang Jingxing: Then how long till you’re home?

Xie Chengyan: 40 minutes or so, what happened?

Fang Jingxing: Cooled.

Xie Chengyan understood instantly: ……

He quickly typed: You played so crazily last night that you only have one day left to live?

He then said: No, not even a day, less than 24 hours.

Fang Jingxing sent a screenshot of the team profile to him.

Xie Chengyan stared at it blankly before reacting. He laughed out loud, falling out of his seat.

His little assistant jumped in fright. Seeing him continuously laughing, the little assistant asked him in curiosity. Xie Chengyan waved his hand, still laughing, and replied to his friend: You change to four, add that five of your family, all matching neatly.

Fang Jingxing did not pay him attention again.

It would take forty minutes to return; the dishes would long have gone cold. Xie Chengyan could not save the stage.

Also, who knew if these fans had brains or not. If they were brainless, and he privately messaged them without careful consideration, the situation might become even more uncontrollable.

Fortunately, he had changed his voice at noon. Otherwise, the combination of “little milky voice Master of Darkness + Seal Master” would make people too suspicious. He would have directly been cooled.

Just as he thought about countermeasures, he heard a certain person speak up.

Jiang Chen asked, “This love license plate of yours, does it have the later 45678?”

The three fans were all very young and had not heard of this famous song lyric.[1] They felt this appellation was quite pleasant to hear.

The Milk Mommy said, “Have, but no five.”

Fang Jingxing: “……”

He was afraid of what would be said next.

Jiang Chen asked, “Why?”

It had already been several months since that time he hit the instance in the closed beta. He had long forgotten the nonsense from then — up until he saw these IDs, then he remembered, because “love of rubbish” really was easy to remember.

However, he did not make the connection to himself. Since he was the party leader, though, and had to command these members whom he was not too familiar with, he thus wanted to bring up a topic to chat about.

The Divine Warrior said, “Because five of love is a friend of our Captain Fang, we must show respect.”

Jiang Chen was stumped for words. “En?”

Fang Jingxing said, “Brother, I know about this. When Captain Fang played in the closed beta, he posted an update, writing ‘five of love, waiting for you online.’ At that time, it was on the hot search.”

Jiang Chen was once again stumped for words and only voiced a simple “oh.”

That thing last time had mentioned searching for him the entire time when adding him as a friend. As it turned out, he had even posted an update online.

Fang Jingxing carefully identified this “oh” sound and did not hear any happiness or anger.

The Milk Mommy said, “We also don’t know whether our Captain Fang had found the person, but this is the first time he searched for them online.”

Jiang Chen asked, “You are all his fans?”

With different mouths but the same voice, one-two-three of love chorused, “En!”

Jiang Chen looked at their IDs again.

Although the criminal ringleader, the main offender was Fang Jingxing (that thing); he could still be regarded as the reason for causing the group fans misfortune of being a love license plate.

He could not stop himself. “Did you all ever consider that five possibly not meaning the numeral five?”

The Milk Mommy said, “Considered, but it doesn’t matter. We chose this ID simply to attract the male god’s attention.”

Fang Jingxing: “……”

En,  you guys succeeded.

While they chatted, they greeted the first wave of mobs. Jiang Chen had yet to say anything when the Divine Warrior dashed forward.

He eyed his surroundings and felt there were no issues. As he fought, he said, “If there is any use, he won’t be on this server either.”

The Milk Mommy was depressed. “He was still here yesterday.”

Jiang Chen was astonished. “En?”

“……” Fang Jingxing was unwilling to sit and wait for death, so he actively jumped in. “I didn’t tell you about this?”

Jiang Chen said, “No.”

Fang Jingxing said, “Oh, then I might have forgotten to.”

He explained, “Yesterday when the servers launched, Captain Fang opened a live broadcast. Fans dug deep and discovered that it was our Dawnstar Reflecting Fate. He did not want to be disturbed while leveling, so he decided to switch servers.”

Jiang Chen thought about that thing’s devious nature and assessed, “He might not have actually switched servers.”

Fang Jingxing: “……”

The Divine Warrior danced, spear in hand, with vigor and might, smiling heartily. “We also guessed as much, so we wanted to stay behind and play.”

Fang Jingxing then said, “Hope is still there.”

He quickly changed topics. “Right, brother, do you know he and Xie Chengyan are bamboo toy horses?”

Jiang Chen was immediately surprised. “Didn’t know.”

Fang Jingxing said, “They grew up together. Xie Chengyan also likes to play Wandering Dream. Previously, Captain Fang would always take him to play. Yesterday, Captain Fang was on this server, so then Xie Chengyan most likely was also here. He switched servers, so Xie Chengyan also would have switched .”

Jiang Chen said, “What a pity.”

Fang Jingxing: “?”

123 of love were deep in sorrow. “Yes!”

Fang Jingxing did not pay the fans any mind and verified, “Brother, you also hope for him to still be here?”

Jiang Chen voiced an “En.”

He still had yet to speak with his family’s nephew. His nephew also did not know he was alive. If his nephew was still here, they could have possibly played the game together, but this matter could not be discussed. He said, “Do you not like them? If they’re here, you might also have the chance to meet them accidentally.”

As if turned out, this was for my sake?

Fang Jingxing was silent.

The Milk Mommy became excited and looked at him. “We also like the two! Are you a CP[2] fan? We three are all CP fans; they match! Perhaps they’re already together!”

The two bosses nearly spoke up at the same time.

Jiang Chen regarded with disdain, “Them?”

Fang Jingxing said, “Really?”

The Milk Mommy said, “I think so. Look at how Xie Chengyan is against the current.[3] How could they make their romance public at random, right?”

Fang Jingxing was indifferent to CP fans, but this just happened to change the subject.

Having them cracking CP between their teeth[4] was indeed very good. He asked, “Is there sugar?”

123 of love all exclaimed, “Yes!”

The three of them did not wait for him and hastily posted their stored grains in the party channel, conveniently giving them all kinds of little gossip.

While they were chatting, Fang Jingxing found out they were all girls. The Divine Warrior used a male account, but was actually a woman; that was all.

Girls were the merriest when cracking CP between their teeth.

Up until they reached the boss’ old nest, they did not bring up yesterday’s live broadcast again.

Fang Jingxing was a hundred percent satisfied.

Jiang Chen listened expressionlessly about his family’s nephew and a certain thing’s sugar. Finally wishing to free himself, he coldly said, “Fight the boss, who says nonsense next, will be who I’m kicking out.”

The four CP fans instantly became as quiet as chickens.

Jiang Chen looked at the Divine Warrior. “Can you hold it?”

The Divine Warrior said, “Should be able to.”

Also, Jiang Chen did not want to use a crispy skin to grind away at the boss and said, “Then Divine Warrior opens the monster. Assassin, go stand to the right. Milk Mommy beside me……”

He arranged them methodically, matching up profession skills and adjusting the tempo so it was just right.

Fang Jingxing saw his command for the first time and was a little pleasantly surprised. In his heart, the desire to sign him heated up. He obediently moved as directed.

The instance flowed smoothly, even during the boss’s targeted confusion. This had also been successfully stabilized by the Seal Master. The three fans were all not rookies and could see that he was an expert. They said, “You’re really amazing.”

Fang Jingxing feared the girls would bring up the Seal Master from yesterday’s live broadcast again and said, “Then add as friends, and we’ll fight another instance if there is a chance in the future.”

The three did not object and added them as friends one after another.

Jiang Chen brushed the corpse, and the equipment burst out piece by piece. He discovered that this time, there was no equipment for Seal Master or Master of Darkness.

He thought to himself, next time, he should not brush the corpse. After withdrawing from the instance and saying goodbye to the girls, he looked at the time. Finding out there were still five minutes until it was half-past nine, he knew there was no time to do anything else. He thus instructed the little rookie to go to sleep early and planned to go offline.

Fang Jingxing called for him to stop. “Wait a minute, do you still plan to go online at half-past eight tomorrow?”

Jiang Chen said, “En, you obediently go to class.”

Fang Jingxing agreed and then watched as the other’s figure disappeared. He let out his held breath.

The three fans did not go far. Upon seeing the party dissolve, they came back.

They were not blind and could see that this Seal Master was really powerful. Taking advantage of the friendship grown from cracking sugar, they inquired, “Your brother is the Seal Master that Captain Fang met when live broadcasting?”

Fang Jingxing silently watched them.

The three fans looked at him in return, waiting for an answer.

Fang Jingxing said, “Didn’t ask. Tomorrow, I will help you ask.”

The three fans voiced an okay and walked away, pleased.

Fang Jingxing then contacted some friends and partied up to fight a 10 person instance. He intended to give the Seal Master the dropped equipment.

Midway through, he received a greeting from the Film Emperor. Replying that he was still alive, he inquired as to whether the other party was free tomorrow.

Xie Chengyan: I’m taking the airplane tomorrow to record a program.

Fang Jingxing: It’s fine, you can come online in the morning.

Xie Chengyan: ?

Fang Jingxing: I want to confess to him.

Xie Chengyan: !!! For real?

Fang Jingxing: Real.

He had never liked being a passive person and did not want to be in such a heart alarming, trembling state of fear again.

Moreover, he had made careful deliberations. What if during the day, when he “went to class,” that boy ran into his fans? What if he fought an instance with those three again? Furthermore, who would change the subject when the moment came?

Rather than allowing the Seal Master to realize the truth from the mouths of others, it truly would be better if he explained instead.

Xie Chengyan eyed the one-word response and knew the other was resolved.

He had nothing to say: So early, what on earth were you tormented about yesterday?

Fang Jingxing: Yesterday, I did not realize I still had to go to class and do homework.

Xie Chengyan reacted after a moment, falling down in laughter.

Fang Jingxing closed the chatbox and fought with his friends until midnight. For the time being, he did not go offline, instead of exploring the map alone. He wanted to pick a good place.

By lucky coincidence, a friend of his passed by and saw him walking to and fro with fireworks. It looked like he was adjusting the angle. Unable to refrain, the friend stepped forward. “What are you doing?”

Fang Jingxing said, “Trying to find a place to set the fireworks; a quieter area is best.”

The friend was stunned. “What for?”

Fang Jingxing said, “Talking with someone about something.”

The friend was stunned once again. “When will it be used?”

Fang Jingxing said, “Tomorrow morning.”

The friend said, “Fewer people in the morning……oh, I know a place.”

He took Fang Jingxing to the refresh point near the lakeside and then swam toward an isle in the middle of the lake. He asked, “Is this place okay?”

Fang Jingxing glanced up at the tree branches above his head and said with a smile, “Okay, thanks.”

The friend said, “Sure.”

The two of them took the same route back. The friend hesitated for a few seconds, and just as he was about to voice a few questions, he saw Fang Jingxing wave at him and directly go offline. He pondered for a while. Unable to help himself, he opened the group chat and sent an explosive message.

—— Tomorrow, Captain Fang might confess to someone!

Sure enough, the group chat exploded.

“???”

“WTF to who?”

“Is it that Seal Master? All the equipment he wanted these last two days were for a Seal Master, saying he was giving it to someone!”

“Possibly, apart from Xie Chengyan, who can make him do something like this? Can only be the person he likes!”

“Are you certain about this matter?”

The person narrated everything that happened and asked, “What do you guys think?”

Everyone thought it must be.

Buying fireworks, choosing a place with no one to talk about a matter with someone, what was it if not a confession?! Previously, Fang Jingxing had never done such things!

When they imagined that scene, they all sighed a little.

The magnificent male god of the alliance, when confessing, unexpectedly chose an isolated area by himself. How could their hearts bear it as true brothers?

If they did not know, forget about it; now that they did know, they could not ignore it like this!

They must lend a hand!
