Today, if not for Xie Chengyan, you would die here.
In the entirety of Fang Jingxing’s life, up until now, he had never been so miserable.
He hastily made this group of things shut up, unable to attend to shooing them away, and said, “Don’t go offline, listen to my explanation.”
Jiang Chen nodded, directly opening vendetta.
Blossoms raining down gently, fireflies swirling in the air; the aesthetic romantic scenery was, in vain, contaminated with murderous spirit.
The refined Seal Master stepped forward, the dark-colored seal sigils condensing at his fingertips before flying straight for the opposing party’s face. The Master of Darkness’ pale face immediately burst out a sphere of bloody mist.
The best man group: “……”
Xie Chengyan: “……”
The second round of attacks but the tail of the earlier one, a critical hit even. Suddenly, a bloody flower burst open.
The best man group finally snapped out of it. Going WTF, they threw away their firework sparklers and separated at high-speed. They eyed the Seal Master.
“No, no, no, the speech was prepared well.”
“It’s us that’s no good. We’re retarded. Hit us.”
“Anger wounds the body; don’t be angry, don’t be angry, ah.”
Fang Jingxing said, “You all get out of the way.”
The best man group was once again dumbstruck, but they also knew they had caused a mishap and immediately did as they were told, vacating the area and hiding under the tree.
When they raised their heads at this time, they saw Xie Chengyan run over from the other side. Collectively looking at him as if he was their saving light, they pulled him over and softly asked, “In the end, what’s going on?”
Xie Chengyan said, “I wanted to ask you guys. What were you doing? Who told you he wanted to confess?”
The best man group was shocked. “Isn’t that so?”
Xie Chengyan said, “No, how could he be confessing?”
The best man group felt a bit wronged.
They gave the Film Emperor their analysis. “Making an appointment with someone to come here and take out a big pile of fireworks, not celebrating a birthday, but rather wanting to tell him something. You judge, carefully judge.”
Xie Chengyan was actually left speechless for a moment.
In fact, he also did not know what Fang Jingxing meant when operating fireworks while confessing to someone.
Speaking of which, a shadow slammed down right in front of them with a bang.
World Champion, NXK’s former captain, alliance male god who previously tyrannized countless people in competitions, had long become a corpse.
They instantly banded together in horror, as quiet as chickens.
They then saw that Seal Master stroll forward leisurely and kick the corpse.
Fang Jingxing revived on the spot and asked, “Cooled your temper?”
Jiang Chen said, “Not at all.”
Fang Jingxing accepted his misfortune as decreed by fate. “Then come again.”
Jiang Chen stood there, motionless.
Yesterday, he had taken the “little rookie” to fight instances countless times, free of charge. According to his temperament, he would return this deception several-fold based on this and seek out Fang Jingxing to abuse him back.
But the prerequisite was……he did not know a certain matter.
Seeing this thing’s attitude of seeking out fans to eat sugar yesterday, if by chance he really was sweethearts with Xie Chengyan, then wouldn’t that make him his nephew’s wife?
His temper was bad, but to his family, he would forever have patience.
Fang Jingxing saw him not react and did not know whether the anger was still fierce or whether he was thinking about going offline silently and disappearing. He promptly sent out a sign for reinforcements while saying, “Don’t go. I was wrong. I apologize.”
Xie Chengyan arrived by his side and chimed in, “He kept thinking about how to confess to you. Truly, he did not deceive you. I am Xie Chengyan. If I deceive you, you can blacken me as much as you like. It doesn’t matter.”
Jiang Chen startled, staring at him.
Xie Chengyan played an Assassin.
Fang Jingxing’s ID style and Jiang Chen’s were different tunes played with equal skill.
Jiang Chen took it from a skill, ID World Annihilation. Fang Jingxing straightforwardly used the last word of Master of Darkness, ID Darkness. However, Xie Chengyan was different. He had paid more attention to choosing an ID than they did, ID Halite. It is the name of an assassin he had previously acted.
Jiang Chen asked, “What proof do you have that you are Xie Chengyan?”
Xie Chengyan responded, “How do you want me to prove it? Record a video?”
Jiang Chen said, “Telling me without taking the time to think; what is your mom called?”
Xie Chengyan said, “Jiang Shilan.”
Jiang Chen: “Birth month?”
Xie Chengyan replied, “July.”
Jiang Chen then knew this was indeed his family’s nephew.
An imposter would usually remember the star’s likes and characteristics, not the name of the star’s mother. Even if they remembered, they were very unlikely to remember the birthday.
But he could not immediately declare his position. Instead, he said he was going to look it up on the internet to verify.
A minute later, he voiced, “En, I believe you.”
Xie Chengyan then continued to speak up in support. “Today, he actually wanted to confess to you. Hear out his explanation, okay?”
For the first time, his nephew requested something from him. Jiang Chen certainly would not refuse.
He nodded and looked at Fang Jingxing, waiting for this thing to speak.
Fang Jingxing did not expect to be able to proceed smoothly after reaching such a desperate stage. He hurriedly captured this opportunity where the other’s attitude was softened and took the other to the side to chat. The cause and effects, as well as his own misgivings, were all discussed. Lastly, he said, “I know you don’t want to talk about playing professionally. I won’t mention it in the future. We’ll just play the game, okay?”
Jiang Chen gave an “En.”
Fang Jingxing could not hear whether it was perfunctory, but he did not think this boy could speak so nicely and asked, “No blacklisting me?”
Jiang Chen gave him another “En.”
He glanced at this vexed thing. “Today, if not for Xie Chengyan, you would die here.”
If he had known about these two’s relationship one night and day later, if Xie Chengyan was not present today, this thing shouldn’t think about having an easy time.
He asked, “Are you two close childhood friends who one grew up with, or are you sweethearts?”
Fang Jingxing said, “Close childhood friends.”
Jiang Chen continued, “Then how come you were eating sugar yesterday? You like him?”
Fang Jingxing said, “No, I was just curious.”
Jiang Chen said, cold and detached, “Oh, it was to change the subject.”
Fang Jingxing: “……”
He knew this boy was still upset and stated, “If you are still unsatisfied, I will still call you brother in the future, how about it?”
Jiang Chen said, “Then I will lose too.”
A close childhood friend who grew up with his nephew should call him uncle alongside his nephew.
Fang Jingxing did not know the actual facts. Having heard what was said, he did not know whether to laugh or cry. He thought to himself, this boy perhaps wanted to make him call our daddy.
He sensibly changed the topic and pointed over to the fireworks. “Last time, that pile of fireworks did not completely explode. I bought a new pile. How about I climb up the tree and hang there, while you continue exploding?”
Jiang Chen turned back to look and felt it was not bad.
However, he had always been the youngest in the family, but now he woke up and suddenly became an “elder.” Due to not having a middle process, in addition to his mentality and physiological age both being young, he did not understand what to do as an “elder.”
As a result, he thought about it. He wouldn’t do the job himself.
A minute later, Fang Jingxing was standing up in the tree.
Twenty meters before him, each person of the best man group was carrying two fireworks, lined up in horror.
Jiang Chen sat to the side as a spectator, giving them guidance on how to use the fireworks.
The best man group felt incredulous. “You……you’re making us use fireworks to pitapat our family’s brother?”
Jiang Chen asked, “Is there a problem?”
The best man group exclaimed, “You, you, you murderous heart!”
Jiang Chen was very unperturbed. “En.”
The best man group: “……”
You, this “En,” what a devil!
How could such a harmful move be thought up?!
Jiang Chen said, “Don’t look distracted. Take out the power of the encouragement you just gave him.”
The best man group: “……”
How was this motherfucking the same?
We couldn’t take it out!
Jiang Chen said, “He had bought fireworks to be used like this. Weren’t you in a rush to help him? Help.”
The best man group: “……”
Regrets, they should not have come!
When they heard Fang Jingxing also say to just do it, they endured the blood dripping from their small hearts and began using fireworks to pitapat him, sorrowful.
Xie Chengyan had also become a spectator and restrained his laughter as he sent his friend a row of candles. He said, “This idea is pretty good. Later, you can buy some fireworks and play with them as if they were water guns.”
He saw his friend request him to help make an appointment and asked, “Later, do you want to hit an instance?”
Jiang Chen asked, “You coming too?”
Xie Chengyan said, “Coming, but I can only play until ten o’clock. I have work today.”
Jiang Chen said, “Okay.”
A short while later, the first round of firework pitapat finished.
Jiang Chen stood and watched from beginning to end. This anger of his was finally appeased.
He watched Fang Jingxing walk over and got up to say, “Fang Jingxing, a PK?”
Just as the best man group sighed in relief after fully experiencing torment, they heard what was said and suddenly looked toward him.
WTF, still beating?
Fang Jingxing could understand what he meant and reminded, “Your level is lower than mine.”
Last night, in order to brush equipment for the Seal Master, he had hit several instances. His level had also risen.
For them, a difference of a few levels might not matter against ordinary players, but between experts, a difference of one level could cause one’s death.
Jiang Chen said, “They will go hit instances with me. You stay here and wait.”
Fang Jingxing smiled helplessly and said, “Okay.”
Jiang Chen then chose three of the five things, as well as his nephew, and took them away.
Fang Jingxing eyed the two remaining brothers and flashed a very friendly smile. “Come, let’s chat.”
The two persons: “……”
They knew they couldn’t escape this beating.
An hour later, Jiang Chen returned.
The two left behind on the island had already run off. The three who went to hit an instance with Jiang Chen received information from their companions and deeply felt there was no benefit in disturbing their matter. They did not dare to come again. As for Xie Chengyan, it just happened to be time for him to go offline. Now, the only ones left on the isle were the two of them.
Seal Master, Master of Darkness.
The two looked at each other and simultaneously opened the video recording.
Fang Jingxing sent a PK invite. Jiang Chen clicked accept. Seal sigils began condensing at his fingertips, heading straight toward his opponent.
Fang Jingxing moved to the side to avoid, but just as he planned to counterattack, he suddenly found that his mana was sealed.
His heart jumped slightly. When did this boy make his move?
Jiang Chen naturally did not let this opportunity slip by. He followed through with a skill.
The small Level 20 skill could hit three targets at once, but he unexpectedly opened it in a straight line. All three orbs smashed into Fang Jingxing’s body, causing his blood to brush down a chunk.
Fang Jingxing endured until the seal was lifted and immediately struck a critical hit.
Both sides were striking at an extremely fast — you go, I go — tempo. Fang Jingxing calculated the time and knew his Seal skill was off cooldown. He hastily dodged, but unfortunately, just as he took a step, he was hit by the seal and could not help but freeze.
If he knew Jiang Chen’s identity, he would not be so amazed.
In those days of the alliance as the number one Seal Master, he was able to seal competitors silent in matches. This skill was a hundred percent sneaky.
Jiang Chen did not give him another chance and took advantage of the other’s inability to use mana. He took him away in a burst and then asked, “Convinced?”
Fang Jingxing got up. “Come again.”
The two started a second match.
Fang Jingxing ate a loss in the first round but would not eat another. He actively looked for an opportunity to hit a wave at him, relying on his superior blood capacity to knock him down. Smiling, he asked, “Are you convinced?”
Jiang Chen said, “Come again.”
A PK match unexpectedly went on for nearly an hour.
If it were not for him being called by the AI, Jiang Chen assumed they would still be fighting on and on.
Fang Jingxing wished to continue as well. “Can’t you be late for a while?”
Jiang Chen replied, “Can’t.”
Fang Jingxing asked, “Will you still go online at that time this afternoon?”
Jiang Chen said, “En.”
Fang Jingxing smiled and said, “Then see you in the afternoon.”
He watched the other’s silhouette disappear and then took off his eyeglasses. He looked at Xie Chengyan, who was inside the room.
Xie Chengyan had taken a bath and eaten a meal. He was currently packing his luggage, but upon seeing this, he said, “How did the PK go?”
He did not hear a reply, so he turned to look and saw his friend’s always smiling expression with extremely bright eyes, as if shining with light. He could not help but be distracted. “What’s up?”
Fang Jingxing smirked. “I have decided on him.”
Xie Chengyan raised a brow.
Fang Jinxing leaned against the sofa and reflected. “Now, I wish I could immediately reach max level and have another match with him.”
Jiang Chen also had similar ideas.
After he finished eating, took a walk, and laid back down in bed, he felt that the blood within his body was still boiling. He could not sleep, so he said to the AI, “Sing me a song.”
The AI asked, “What song?”
Jiang Chen pondered for a moment and then requested a Linkin Park song.
After the two AIs searched for the song, they began singing.
Jiang Chen listened, very satisfied, and thought to himself, this song could still hold on.
But the staff members could not stand it anymore.
They ran over and opened the door. They saw Jiang Chen’s closed eyes, both hands folded over his body. He looked unexpectedly a little serene. The two AIs stood beside the bed, howling at him, shouting themselves hoarse —— disco dancing atop a burial mound was nothing compared to this!
They were immediately shocked. “Don’t sing. How can he sleep with you singing this?”
The two AIs were very innocent. “He ordered us to sing.”
The staff members once again looked at Jiang Chen.
Captain Jiang closed his eyes and pretended to be dead, adopting an “I’m asleep” appearance.
The staff members remained silent for several seconds before dragging the two aggrieved AIs out.
In the end, Jiang Chen did not fall asleep and endured the next two hours until he could go online again.
Fang Jingxing had long been waiting for him. He greeted the other with a smile, “Brother, come?”
After the PK match, Jiang Chen found him more pleasing to the eye. He said, “Actually, I had also deceived you about something.”
Fang Jingxing thought, unexpectedly, there was a surprise harvest. He curiously asked, “About what?”
Jiang Chen asked, “How old are you?”
Fang Jingxing said, “25.”
Jiang Chen said, “I’m not 19 years old.
He patted the other’s shoulder. “Later, call me uncle. When I began playing Wandering Dream, you still weren’t born.”
Fang Jingxing: “???”

Thanking everyone for their overlord tickets and nutrient solutions, muah~

 ie – pulse, bombard, except the author used onom. so keeping this to match the intent
 to annihilate a certain someone’s physical body, it is better to expose, condemn this person’s motives, thoughts, intentions.
