Remembering the little guy in the game, Shen Cheng hurried back home, took two bites of the meal, and opened the game.
It has been more than an hour since she last logged in. Main quest 1 is displayed as completed, the city building order for Noah’s base has been issued, and the scene in the game has also changed.
The sky was getting darker and darker. The little guy was sitting beside a fire, silently putting something in it.
“Huh, where is this now? What is the little guy doing?” Shen Cheng remembered that she had just used a 24-hour protective shield for Mr. cub before she closed the game. ho lo lo novels. She poked the item bar and looked at the remaining time.
Sure enough, even if she was not actively playing the game, the remaining usage time of the protective shield was still shortened, and now there are only less than 23 hours left.
That…is the time when she was not in the game. So, the little guy left the yellow sand area for more than an hour, walked to this green foresty region, and even cut branches and started a fire?
Shen Cheng glanced at the guy’s right hand inadvertently while staring at his efficiency. She was a little surprised to find that his right hand was still hanging down weakly, and it seemed that he didn’t even put on a bandage. She couldn’t help pursing the corners of her lips. There was a slight worry in her heart – even if it was a game character who didn’t know pain, the game developers have no heart? The little guy is still disabled, but instead of bandaging or fixing the fractured wound first, he is busy making barbecue? Is this AI’s priority set wrong?
Shen Cheng poked the little guy’s face lightly, and pursed her lips a little.
Li Weilan felt like there was a slight breeze passing by his cheeks, he subconsciously stretched out his intact left hand and scratched his left cheek, and there was a trace of doubt in his eyes. He is an ability user, so his senses are heightened. The feeling of someone snooping was not just an illusion.
Who is it?
Could it be that the person who put him down from the cross and place a protective barrier around him before?
Li Weilan’s eyes flashed fiercely. The fact that he was secretly spied on, without knowing who this person was, made him extremely uneasy. This can’t be done; he had to find this person.
He started the fire and roasted the meat were all for this purpose.
At this time, the roasted wolf meat on the fire was already ready. It was sprinkled with a small amount of seasoning and smelled delicious. The skin was crispy and the meat inside was tender and chewy. It was a rare delicacy in this era.
Li Weilan stretched out his hand and took the wolf meat. At this moment, a sheen layer of oil was coated the golden surface of the roasted meat. He felt his greedy mouth watering.
Facing this rare delicacy, Li Weilan’s eyes were still like water. The corners of his lips evoked a slight smile, but this rare smile froze when he thought of being secretly watched.
Although Shen Cheng outside the screen could not smell the aroma of barbecue, she looked at the roasted meat in the hands of the little guy, and only felt what she just eaten had turned into stone. With the uncomfortable growling in her stomach, she thought that even the in-game characters have such good cooking skills. Just looking at the barbecued meat made her feel hungry when she had just filled her stomach. She is not even as good as the game character she raised. She can only eat such good food once or twice every other day. Ten yuan for a takeout was barely enough to fill her stomach. She was already disgusted by the smell of takeout. Her life was not as good as the poor little person just now.
But then, Shen Cheng frowned. There was a faint sound coming from her earphones, as if in a dark place where the campfire couldn’t reach, something was peeping, from the edge of a quiet corner, at the little man who is quietly roasting the meat.
The next second, perhaps no longer unable to resist the smell of barbecue, the stalker from the darkness suddenly appeared in front of the little guy.
It was a man in rags.
He was holding a dagger in his hand, and behind him was a thin and small girl, both of whom were skinny and dirty, hunched over their backs, looking more like two gray mice.
[Main quest 2: Recruit companions to set off together. Current progress 0/2 task reward: open system space]
There are only two people in front of them, can this be considered a companion?
But how to recruit these two people?
The little guy on the screen looked at them, and suddenly a bubble appeared on his head. He sighed softly and lowered his face slightly, as if he was somewhat sympathetic to two.
Li Weilan’s heart was undoubtedly disappointed.
He originally thought that the peeping person would show up to come meet him, after all, no matter why that person helped him, they would not just leave without asking something from him. Since this person has made an investment, he will definitely show up. He thought of something; he wanted to use his cooking skills to draw that person out. But in the end, it was only these two homeless people who showed up. Maybe his thought process was wrong.
Perhaps he gave the wrong impression to the two people in front of him, the man felt his knees suddenly softened and knelt down in front of Li Weilan. The dagger in his hand also fell to the ground; he stretched out his hand and pulled the girl behind him to kneel with him. He pleaded loudly: “My sister and I haven’t eaten meat for too long. She is dying. Please, give her a bite to eat, and I can do whatever you want!”
Li Weilan’s calm gaze fell on the girl, and surprise flashed in his eyes.
Although this girl was covered in dirt and dust, her eyes dull and numb, she still couldn’t hide her beauty.
In this day and age, the man can exchange a few bites of food just by selling off his own sister. Now there is nothing is more precious than food. The girl looked at the barbeque in his hand and kept swallowing, imagining herself eating the meat. If you look closely, the man is thinner than his sister. His sister is covered in dirt, but his body is clean. This person is a water-type ability user? Ability users must eat a little bit of mutant animal meat every once in a while, which is as more important to them than salt. Just hunting mutant beasts alone is tantamount to picking chestnuts from fire, and it is extremely dangerous. This man and his sister must be homeless.
A water-type ability user has been reduced to this…
Li Weilan’s eyebrows twitched slightly.
But what does this have to do with him!
Since he didn’t bring out the person who helped him, he would never split this wolf meat!
However, at this time, the fire had already roasted another bunch of wolf meat, which was slightly scorched, and it suddenly flew up by itself, landed in front of the man, and no longer moved.
Li Weilan felt a little silly, but the man was overjoyed. He banged his head three times towards Li Weilan, then he peeled off the shredded meat from the skewer and fed it to the younger sister behind him. ho lo lo novels. The girl’s little hand held the last bit and handed it to his brother’s mouth.
The man was not in a hurry to eat, but knelt down and said loudly to Li Weilan: “Thank you for benefactor’s life-saving grace. My name is Xi Nan, and this is my sister Xi Bei. I am a water-type ability, and the benefactor’s drinking and bathing water will be supplied by me in the future.”
Li Weilan rubbed his forehead with a headache.
He felt like someone stabbed his back, and then he realized something at this moment. Li Weilan almost jumped up. His feeling was right! The man who saved him is indeed nearby!
He looked around and couldn’t find anyone.
But he got the meaning of the person hidden in the dark. He frowned but refrained himself and said to Xi Nan in front of him, “Don’t do this, it’s just a little effort, get up.”
Shen Cheng watched the classic scene of ‘the male protagonist accepting his younger brother’ in front of her. She then looked at Xi Nan, who raised his head revealing his handsome eyebrows, and at the tough little guy who had washed off the yellow sand in front of her. She couldn’t help swallowing the sweetness. Sweet aunt smiled. (T/N: Hello, fellow fujoshi?)
She was a bit regretful; she knows Xi Nan’s name, but she still doesn’t know what the protagonist’s name is?
Just when this small question appeared in Shen Cheng’s heart, the little guy on the screen had reached out and helped Xi Nan up.
“I’m Li Weilan.” The little guy said his name.
Shen Cheng pronounced the name and repeated it twice, with a sweet smile on his face, she thought it sounded pretty good. It seems that there is no need to continue complaining about the dog game developer’s storyline.
After the three exchanged names, the second task was finally displayed as [Completed].
On the screen, Li Weilan, Xi Nan and Xi Bei sat together and ate barbecue. The atmosphere was quiet and warm. Shen Cheng poked the phone screen, and a line of small words appeared on it at the right time:
[The main task 2 has been completed, do you enter: system space? Y/N]
Space? This should be the simulation quest in the game, right?
Shen Cheng cheerfully clicked yes, and the next second, the picture on the screen changed.
“…” Looking at the empty yellow earth and the wolf’s head lying on the ground, Shen Cheng swallowed a mouthful of saliva, but her hands and feet still felt stiff across the screen.
It seems that there is no need to worry about where the mutant beast meat of the cub came from, it was cut from this giant wolf. Cub, cub, you killed this mutant wolf in one go and didn’t clean it up, leaving clumps of blood on the ground. Grandma didn’t know whether she should help clean it up for you.
Shen Cheng didn’t realize that she had switched into her mother’s mentality unconsciously. Looking at the messy system space, Shen Cheng, who was already a little obsessive-compulsive, could not help but clean up.
Fortunately, the game’s cleaning process is quite simple. Shen Cheng tapped the corpse of the mutant beast, the system prompted to cut the meat piece by piece and hang it up.
After processing the wolf meat, Shen Cheng also dried the remaining wolf skin according to the system instructions. When the whole space finally became clean and orderly, Shen Cheng remembered to take a look at the time: Oops, it’s past 12 o’clock! “I feel like I haven’t played enough wow!” Shen Cheng knew that if she didn’t go to sleep now, she would definitely wake up late tomorrow. She took another look at the empty ground in the space with reluctance and said ‘good night’ to the cub on the screen before going to bed.
Li Weilan sat by the fire to keep watch. Xi Bei was already asleep. Xi Nan walked up to him quietly and whispered to him, “Boss, where are we going now?”
“Let’s go to Noah.” Li Weilan said softly.
“Noah?” Doubt flashed in Xi Nan’s eyes. He sat down and glanced at the exquisitely carved and even steampunk-like Noah base token in Li Weilan’s hand. He shook his head in confusion, “I didn’t think I have heard of this base.” According to the level of technology shown on this token, Noah should not be a small base. But as a wandering scavenger, he has never heard the name Noah Base, which is too strange.
Li Weilan lowered his eyes and did not speak.
“Boss, this…” Xi Nan hesitated, his eyes fell on Li Weilan’s broken arm, “It will take at least two days to look through the map, and this journey may not be safe. Boss, let’s wait until your arm recover first and then get on the road?”
“There’s nothing to be afraid.” Li Weilan’s voice was light, with a little bit of mystery in the night wind, “Someone is guarding us.”
Greetings from the translator
What do you guys think of the novel so far, I know it’s only been chapter 2? I really liked the novel I raised a sick and weak prince on NU. Although, its ending was quite abrupt and could have been better, I enjoyed the journey overall.
