Shi Sheng waited for Idle Chess to finish setting off fireworks.
[PM] Idle Chess : [Feeling better?]
[PM] Sang Yu’s Not Late : [Yeah. Thanks Dashen. Sorry I made you spend so much.]
[PM] Idle Chess : [It’s never too much if it’s for you. I have something on now, so I’ll head off. Don’t worry too much.]
Before Sang Yu’s Not Late got a chance to reply, Shi Sheng logged off and logged onto her Music For Miles account.
[Party] Music For Miles : [let’s go go go! but is it just the two of us dashen? who’s killing the mobs then?]
[Party] Ink Seeker : […What are you going for?]
[Party] Music For Miles : [obviously to sightsee the inside of twinklegem tower!]
You have been kicked by the party leader.
Shi Sheng’s lip twitched as she sent a request to join the party again.
You have joined the party.
[Party] Music For Miles : [dashen, where’d you learn kicking ppl from the party the moment there’s a disagreement? it’s a bad habit]
[Party] Ink Seeker : [Too talkative.]
[Party] Music For Miles : [speaking more is good for your mental and physical health. oh right, where’s 66? wasn’t he supposed to be keeping an eye on us or something?]
[Party] Ink Seeker : [The Camp War is happening today.]
‘Camp War? So that’s why everyone was rushing off somewhere just now! They were going to participate in that Camp War thing.’
The very first Camp War would definitely have bugs, so it was common sense that GM66 wouldn’t have had the time to watch over them.
[Party] Music For Miles : [then let’s go beat twinklegem tower with hacks]
[Party] Ink Seeker : [……]
‘While everyone’s focused on the Camp War, she’s planning on hacking Twinklegem Tower… Are you sure the game’s meant to be played this way? Though… I’ll admit that idea sounds pretty good.’
And so, the two happily went off to hack Twinklegem Tower. Once they had entered, the sight of the densely-packed mobs startled Shi Sheng.
[Party] Music For Miles : [why are there so many mobs? ppl with claustrophobia are gonna complain]
[Party] Ink Seeker : [The difficulty increases exponentially after floor 105.]
He was able to start from floor 70 because he had the first clear for that floor, but over this past week, he had only managed to make it to floor 105. It was impossible for him to go any higher.
[Party] Music For Miles : [they’re planning on making players ragequit or somethin?]
[Party] Ink Seeker : [Seems like they aren’t planning on updating Twinklegem Tower anytime soon.]
[Party] Music For Miles : [devs are too lazy. 0/10]
[Party] Music For Miles : [yo dashen, wanna have a contest?]
[Party] Ink Seeker : [What contest?]
[Party] Music For Miles : [there are still 50 lvls left, let’s see who beats the last boss first]
[Party] Ink Seeker : [Is there money for the winner?]
[Party] Music For Miles : [hey now, we’ve already been a couple for ages, talking about money hurts our relationship!]
‘Like, the fuck? Is this guy obsessed with money or something? All he talks about is money!’
She’d bought all of her gold legitimately. After all, changing the game data for gold was too easy to detect.
[Party] Ink Seeker : [Not competing.]
[Party] Music For Miles : [fine fine fine, you win i give you 2k, i win, you gimme 5k]
[Party] Ink Seeker : [Why?]
[Party] Music For Miles : [i’m a girl]
[Party] Ink Seeker : [So what?]
‘“So what…”?! I’m a girl! So you should be giving in to me dammit! Serves you right for being single if this is your attitude!’
[Party] Music For Miles : [i’m your wife]
[Party] Ink Seeker : [……]
[Party] Ink Seeker : [Let’s start then.]
Shi Sheng found that he was much more compliant when she called herself his wife.
After cricking her neck and stretching her wrists, Shi Sheng took a deep breath and focussed her attention back on the monitor. Her pale and long fingers danced across the keyboard, so quick that they became a blur to the eyes of an observer.
It was much easier after they had used hacks.
Ink Seeker hadn’t used them before because he felt doing that would take the fun out of it. But now Shi Sheng wanted to compete with him, so he didn’t mind using them.
On the final level, Shi Sheng arrived later than Ink Seeker by a heartbeat. The final boss would definitely not be easy to take on.
As such, Shi Sheng deliberately allowed Ink Seeker to attack the boss first. After waiting for the right moment, she jumped out to pull the boss’ aggro and kill-steal.
Ink Seeker had probably expected this since he didn’t do anything to prevent it and just watched as she killed the boss.
[PM] Music For Miles : [hubby, 5k. pls send it ovr]
[PM] Ink Seeker : [I don’t have the money. Can I pay you with my body instead?]
[PM] Music For Miles : […dashen, did someone steal your account or something?]
‘He was flirting! Something’s not right!’
[PM] Ink Seeker : [No.]
Shi Sheng and Ink Seeker were teleported out of Twinklegem Tower just in time to catch the system announcement that floated past their heads.
System Announcement: The Demon Camp’s “Thousand Autumns” Alliance has triumphed over the Deity Camp’s “World” and “Carefree” Alliances, achieving victory in this Camp War.
Before people could start cussing on world chat over this announcement, a new announcement showed up with an array of special effects, stealing their attention.
[Loudspeaker] System Announcement: Congratulations to Player Ink Seeker’s party for managing to clear the 120th floor of Twinklegem Tower! Reward: A title, “Peerless Under Heaven”.
Shi Sheng’s only reaction upon seeing this announcement was: ‘So stingy. They only gave a title!’
[World] [email protected] : [do my eyes fail me? or is that Ink Seeker Dashen i see hanging on that system announcement?!]
[World] Wind Between My Legs, Butt Itches : [twinklegem tower… 120th floor… Ink Seeker Dashen is going to ascend the heavens ah!]
[World] Dancing 2 Da Beat : [don’t you guys find it funny? whenever somethin happens with Drunkflower Den, Music For Miles always somehow manages to give them a slap to the face with timely system announcements! and now Countless Generations got their faces slapped by Ink Seeker right after they won the Camp War… are you sure these two aren’t really the game company’s undercover ops?]
[World] Just Watching Shows : [da beat’s got a point. that was some wicked timing]
[World] p!ssoff : [there’s sumthin up with the game company. even if they’re an intentional attraction, it shouldn’t be done this way!]
[World] Foggy Unclear : [Sang Yu, what’re you playing dead for?! You blamed losing the City War on Music For Miles, and now you’re blaming us for losing the Camp War?! You really think just because you’re the Alliance Head you’re all that?! If it wasn’t for Guildmaster, how would you have even gotten this position?!]
The sudden message caused all discussion regarding Shi Sheng and Ink Seeker to halt.
[World] Wind-walking The World : [Get off world chat.]
[World] Foggy Unclear : [Wind, if you like her, just be honest about it. Would she be grateful to you for being subtle?]
[World] Foggy Unclear : [Before the Camp War, she was hanging out with Idle Chess and enjoying fireworks! Guildmaster wasn’t here, yet as the Alliance Head, instead of planning out our strategy, she went out with someone on a rendezvous! Now we lost and she blames us! Just where did she get this confidence from?!]
[World] Foggy Unclear : [I’d like to just say right now: When guildmaster was here, he’d pamper her all the time. She always thought she was all that when it was really because guildmaster was there to clean after her mess! She doesn’t have ability, yet she won’t listen to our opinions and acts on her own judgement! Who the h.ell does she think she is?!]
From how infuriated he was this time, it was enough to tell just how outrageous Sang Yu’s Not Late’s behaviour had been.
‘Okay, let’s come clean now. I completely forgot the Camp Wars were happening before I brought Sang Yu to view fireworks… If I’d known… I would’ve kept her there longer!!!’
Good morning my little babes~
Come on, mutual destruction! Smash me to death with votes ah!
