When Shi Sheng came home from school, she immediately logged on.
Ink Seeker was already there. He’d been standing motionless in one spot for who knew how long.
[PM] Ink Seeker : [Continue?]
The moment she logged on, Ink Seeker sent her a message.
[PM] Music For Miles : [en]
Ink Seeker appeared to have activated some sort of cheat, since he now knew what to do. Shi Sheng didn’t need to worry about the quest anymore. All she had to do was follow Ink Seeker’s instructions.
But the quest was too complicated and boring. After a while, Shi Sheng lost her interest and didn’t continue moving her character forward.
Ink Seeker kept walking until he discovered that he couldn’t go any further. Turning his viewpoint around, he found the white-clothed woman had sat down cross-legged.
He was forced to go back for her.
[PM] Ink Seeker : [?]
[PM] Music For Miles : [bored. don’t feel like doing]
[PM] Ink Seeker : [……]
[PM] Music For Miles : [i’m going off first]
Shi Sheng logged off without giving Ink Seeker any time to react.
Ji Yan stared at the empty map, and then, in his frustration, he slammed a palm down on his keyboard.
‘This temperamental woman! She’ll be the death of me!’ He irritatedly rose off his seat and stalked over to the window, yanking the curtains open.
Sunlight rushed into the room and enveloped him.
This seemed to have annoyed Ji Yan, for he frowned and drew the curtains shut again. He then started pacing around the dim room, sweeping an occasional look at the computer screen.
After Shi Sheng logged off her main, she logged onto Wooden Bellz’ account to mess around with the Undermoons for a bit. Now that she and Ink Seeker had been locked away, the world seemed much quieter.
Shi Sheng was bored to the point she could eat dirt, and after a while, she got tired of playing. If there weren’t any people to kill or fires to start, she just couldn’t muster up any motivation.
And so, she simply logged off and went to bed.
The next day, she didn’t have time to play because of school. By the time she managed to find time to log on, they were already on the third day.
However, when she logged on, she discovered her avatar wasn’t where she had left it last, but in an unfamiliar map.
The hidden quest had changed, too. Shi Sheng fell silent as she looked at the player standing next to her character.
[PM] Music For Miles : [it’s not very nice of you to steal my account without my permission.]
[PM] Ink Seeker : [If I’d asked for permission, it wouldn’t be called stealing.]
[PM] Music For Miles : [……]
She actually had no retort for that.
[PM] Music For Miles : [do the quest on your own then]
‘Not playing with you anymore!’ Shi Sheng logged off so quickly she didn’t see the message Ink Seeker had sent.
[PM] Ink Seeker : [Wait a minute.]
Ji Yan really couldn’t understand this girl. ‘I stole her account, yet her reaction is this calm? Isn’t she afraid I’ll go and sell it? Weirdo…’
She’d been busy with school for the past two days, so she rarely went online. Even when she did log on, it was just to check on the progress of the hidden quest. Seeing that the quest hadn’t been completed yet, she’d leave without saying a word, pissing Ink Seeker off to the point he seriously contemplated selling her account. Numerous times.
By the time Shi Sheng had finished all her work, it was already Saturday, the day Li Suo and Sang Yu were holding their wedding.
[PM] Music For Miles : [how come you’re still not done?]
[PM] Ink Seeker : [……]
‘What’s with that accusatory tone in her words? You’re still not satisfied with me doing the quest on my own?!’
Shi Sheng looked back at her hidden quest. Its name had already changed to “Dream of A Thousand Years”.
‘This should be the last part.’
[PM] Music For Miles : [we nearly done?]
[PM] Ink Seeker : [En.]
[PM] Music For Miles : [then let’s hurry up! there’ll be a good show on later]
Shi Sheng hurriedly started doing her quest. Her character had disappeared for too long! It was time to go back to announce her presence, lest the little bitches forget about her!
As a villain who took her duties very seriously, this was something Shi Sheng could not tolerate.
Shi Sheng’s learning ability was exceptional; Ink Seeker only had to instruct her once and she’d immediately know what to do. The final objective was to return to the valley from before and speak to Xi Li.
Right now, it was very lively on world chat. It was nearly 8 o’clock, the time of Li Suo Dashen and Sang Yu’s Not Late’s wedding.
Sang Yu’s Not Late had already been helped into her wedding garments by some close friends of hers, and was currently standing next to Li Suo (also outfitted in wedding garments), facing Elder Yue.
Their wedding garments were the most expensive ones that could be bought in the Shop, the glow accentuating the two’s stunning looks.
Everyone kept posting their congratulations.
Sang Yu was feeling a bit nervous. ‘I’m really getting married to Dashen?’
The time on the screen slowly ticked forward.
19 : 59 : 45
19 : 59 : 55
When there were three seconds left, a dialogue box appeared in front of Sang Yu’s Not Late asking her whether or not she agreed to get married to Li Suo.
Sang Yu nervously clicked “Yes”.
But the next second…
System Announcement: Congratulations Music For Miles and Ink Seeker for clearing the “Dream of A Thousand Years” Secret Realm. The reward: a title, “Till Death Do Us Part”, and an exclusive pair of couple outfits, “Three Lifetimes”.
System Announcement: Congratulations Music For Miles and Ink Seeker for tying the knot. May the two of you have a hundred years of bliss.
System Announcement: The Secret Realm “Dream of A Thousand Years” shall open soon, please be patient.
At the same time that the three system announcements popped up, fireworks and roses filled up the screen.
The usernames “Music For Miles” and “Ink Seeker” had special effects around them, so not even the fireworks and roses could block them out.
Only after sending off these congratulations did the people who sent them realize and react. ‘Those names aren’t right!’
The Undermoons who’d been planning on stealing the limelight were also stunned by this turn of events.
They had thought Shi Sheng wasn’t online, but then the messages had popped up.
[World] Just Watching Shows : [……]
[World] Enjoying Wind : [……]
[World] [email protected] : [……]
[World] Wind Between My Legs, Butt Itches : [……]
A strange silence befell the world chat.
Shi Sheng was also somewhat dazed when she saw the announcements.
At that moment, she and Ink Seeker had returned to the cave.
[PM] Xi Li : [Are you willing to die for him?]
‘Die for who? Ink Seeker? Die your head! Not willing!’
Shi Sheng’s hands had moved before she could stop herself. The idea had only just popped into her head when her hand clicked on “Not willing”.
‘Wait wait wait! My hand slipped! I clicked wrongly! Fuck! You’re supposed to click “Willing” in a situation like this!!!’
As the instant regret sunk into Shi Sheng, the scene suddenly began to shake as if falling apart.
[PM] Xi Li : [There’s no such thing as true love in this world. Since that’s the case, it might as well be destroyed!]
The background seemed as if it were being cut up by countless blades as it shattered apart.
Unable to use any skills, Shi Sheng and Ji Yan could only watch as their avatars shook in the shattering world like a leaf boat in an ocean, swaying around without an anchor.
Just as Shi Sheng thought they were dead for sure, the shattering suddenly stopped. Then the three announcements popped up, followed by fireworks and roses swallowing up the screen.
[World] Snowfall Undermoon : [lil musey, that slap must’ve stung! hahaha that was awesome! ps: tycoon, does this mean we can call off the wedding?]
Snowfall Undermoon broke the stillness, causing the world chat to seethe with discussion.
[World] [email protected] : [What do Music For Miles and Ink Seeker Dashen mean by making such a flashy entrance after disappearing for so long?]
[World] Dancing 2 Da Beat : [Music For Miles and Ink Seeker Dashen actually got married…]
[World] Just Watching Shows : [Are you sure they didn’t plan this?]
