Chapter 91: Son Of The Sea
Translator: Larbre Studio Editor: Larbre Studio
In a private room, Palace Hotel.
Lu Wu and An Manman were staring at each other.
“Dog Daddy, so you are in charge of Battle Online?”
Lu Wu smiled embarrassingly after hearing that, he did not expect An Manman to be the one who wanted to meet him.
“So, it’s on?”
Lu Wu nodded, “Since it’s you, why not!”
“What about the conditions?”
“Uncle An has always treated me well. On top of that, you are my friend. Besides, cooperating with you will help me promote my game, so no conditions required. My only request is for you to bear all the expenses and arrange the venue for every tournament.”
Lu Wu’s thoughts were very simple because he had a higher pursuit, money was of lesser importance to him now, which might even be less important than soul coins. He was satisfied as long as he had enough money to use.
“No problem!” An Manman replied with a smile.
Wu Guoyi who was sitting aside had his eyes wide open. They were only there for less than five minutes but they had already settled everything.
“There must be something fishy!” Bei Li, who glanced back and forth between An Manman and Lu Wu, murmured.
When they heard it, the atmosphere turned awkward instantly.
“She is just a child, she didn’t mean it, I hope you don’t mind…” Lu Wu explained to An Manman in an awkward tone.
“When did you have a child!” An Manman shuddered inexplicably while looking at Bei Li, and Bei Li felt her murderous aura.
“She’s not my child, her name is Bei Li, she is my friend,” looking at An Manman’s suspicious gaze, Lu Wu explained while bracing himself.
After listening to Lu Wu’s explanation, Wu Guoyi’s gaze on him changed, too.
He clearly remembered that Lu Wu said that Bei Li was his sister, so how did she become a friend now? Fishy.
“Why are all of you looking at me like this?”
Looking at the apparent distrust of An Manman and Wu Guoyi, Lu Wu felt that they seemed to have misunderstood something.
“Little girl, where are your parents?”
Looking at the delicate and cute Bei Li, An Manman bent down and asked softly.
“Parents? All gone!” Bei Li calmly replied.
An Manman was silent.
An Manman thought that Bei Li was an orphan, and was suddenly full of empathy, and she could not help wanting to hug her, but Bei Li dodged it nimbly.
“Fair competition, no sneak attacks are allowed!” Bei Li raised her fist and put on a fighting posture.
Lu Wu pulled Bei Li to his side, and he got a headache while looking at the grumpy Bei Li, “Enough! This is not a fight, don’t talk nonsense!”
Seeing the suspicious faces of An Manman and Wu Guoyi, Lu Wu could only give the explanation that he had already fabricated, saying that he met the pitiful Bei Li somewhere. Then, his sympathy overflowed so he adopted her.
Fortunately, the two did not delve into it. An Manman also knew Lu Wu’s character and she knew that he would not commit such stupid things that would put him behind bars for three years so she overlooked it.
Later, while having a meal, An Manman took the initiative to talk to Lu Wu about the issues in future tournaments.
Lu Wu had nothing to hide about this, and he proactively told her about the Guild War that he was preparing.
After hearing that, An Manman said that she would arrange the commentators and opening for the tournament when it commenced. It was also a kind of appreciation to Lu Wu for authorizing the streaming rights to her without conditions.
However, Wu Guoyi seemed to be the most excited person after hearing this news.
He was also the president of one of the guilds. How could he not be thrilled to hear this insider information? Although it did not show on his face, he was already secretly planning on the next development of his guild and was ready to make a splash in this Guild War.
After dinner, everyone got along well, especially Lu Wu and An Manman who were already close friends. They often talked about the past while they were eating.
However, on the other hand, Bei Li was eating silently at the side. From time to time, she would look up and see the two chatting happily, and then she would turn her grief and resentment into appetite again and started gorging on the dining table.
The Insect Island, Void Ocean.
The ten-member team of the Demolition Guild was hiding quietly in the bushes, observing the situation outside through the gaps between the branches and leaves.
There was a strange land that shone with an emerald light about a 100 square meters wide, several dozen meters away from the bushes. Many beast-like creatures patrolled the field, guarding this Spiritual Field.
Among the many spiritual materials planted in this Spiritual Field, the most attractive one was the strangely shaped fruit in the middle of the field.
[Son of the Sea]: A mysterious fruit blessed by the sea, an epic treasure of limitless value. One could get the blessing of the Underworld Sea God and randomly gain a talent-level ability after eating this fruit.
Several people hiding in the bushes showed greed in their eyes when they saw this epic treasure.
This was already their third time landing on the Insect Island.
The numerous direct confrontations previously ended terribly and they returned empty-handed, but they were unwilling to share this secret. This time, only ten people came and snuck in here. They wanted to see if there was a chance to steal the Son of the Sea.
After five hours of observation, they found out that there would be a rotation of orc guards on the Spiritual Field every two hours, with a gap of two minutes in between, so they were ready to take action quickly when the guards changed shifts.
They waited for another few moments, and the orcs patrol began to head east.
And at this moment, Liu Chai and the others jumped out of the bushes and ran toward the Son of the Sea frantically.
As expected, there were no orcs who blocked them in those two minutes. They easily picked the Son of the Sea, and at the same time, they ran around the Spiritual Field crazily.
[District Announcement: Congratulations to Liu Chai for winning the Epic Treasure, Son of the Sea]
Liu Chai showed his ecstatic face when he saw the announcement.
“Woof, woof!” suddenly, a puppy came out of nowhere ran to Liu Chai’s side and rubbed its head on the edge of his pants.
“Go away!” Liu Chai kicked the puppy away.
He hated dogs the most, his husky had cost him a lot. If it was not his wife’s favorite, he would have cooked the dog and ate it long ago.
The dog which he hated was Sun Qi from the Myth Guild.
The two guilds already had several conflicts because of resources. Sun Qi, a dog that could heal its whole group, gave him a headache. The few times he lost was because of this damn dog.
So from Liu Chai’s point of view, dogs were not a good thing!
However, this kick had caused them trouble. When the puppy landed, it began to whine. The orcs of another shift heard it and rushed toward them in the Spiritual Field.
“Run!” Liu Chai screamed loudly and shoved the Son of the Sea into the Artifact Channel.
He knew the mighty power of these orcs, they were no match for them.
But when Liu Chai turned around and took a glance, he suddenly saw the puppy’s property menu which was not far away.
[Gou Dan]: The son of the Insect Island’s owner, in its juvenile phase.
Seeing the puppy’s introduction, Liu Chai stared at it for a while. Then, he hugged the puppy and ran.
The orcs guarding the Spiritual Field were extremely powerful fighters. With just a few steps, they almost caught up to Liu Chai and others. The slower guild members were immediately knocked down to the ground by the orcs.
When Liu Chai realized that there was no way of escaping the orcs, he turned around and lifted Gou Dan, choking its neck, “Don’t come any closer!”
