Wang Jian’s prowess in combat doesn’t compare to that of Liu Ying.However, he has lighting fast attacks which doesn’t give the opponent a chance to retreat. Also, he’s the aggressive type to use his [Combo Lv.3] to aim at three different angles which makes him so difficult to defeat!
At the same time, there is his pet Killer Bee ready to take me out!
Looking at my skills, Hemostasis and Heal won’t be enough to save my life when he attacks. Wang Jian’s attack with the help of his Killer Bee will surely be more than I can handle! My Defense and Health is not high enough to handle both of their [Combo]. The only thing I can do now is to hide Bobo behind my back and when he will attack I will send Bobo to kill him at the same time!
General Wang Jian gritted his teeth: “Die little Healer!”
I feel the cold steel of his Blade passing through my shoulders, with the immense pain appear three damage points –
General Wang Jian can kill me with just two of his attacks… the gap in strength and attack damage is too much! As I feel the pain running through the course of my body, I command Bobo to attack using his [Combo Lv.3] as I fell. A hexagram appeared on Wang Jian chest right as I close my eyes.
“What is this….?!?”
With a shining light, Bobo’s [Combo Lv.3] activated on Wang Jian’s chest, showing a dumbfounded look, he sees three damage points appear in front of his face –
Rest in peace you son of a B*&*!. Bobo even had a critical damage on his last attack! Awesome! Wang Jian never guessed that I would had sacrifice myself to kill him, but I know that was the only way. Before anyone comes to attack Baby Bobo, I should call him back!
I appear in my Soul form as I look over at my dead body to see what items I have dropped. My equipment wasn’t broken , but I drop 3 white equipments and 2 sets of Icy Herbs… I wonder if it would be safe for me to resurrect and pick up my drops; ah, I doubt it! At least we manage to take out the 3 Generals.
7 minutes later I can hear people near my body
The mountain pine trees swaying in the cold breeze, [Cold Wind Forest] still desolated as I stood watch over my body. I dare not resurrect because next to me General Li Mu, General Wang Jian, General Bai Qi and several other had already resurrected. I can see General Wang Jian sitting on my body as he drank a HP potion. That bastard…
“Damn this Xiao Yao Zi Zai! It’s all his fault!” Wang Jian kicked my corpse in the leg, said: “If only he didn’t use [Heal] on Yue Qing Qian, we would had definitely killed her and took back the BOSS equipments!”
General Li Mu calmly said: “Xiao Yao is one of the few high level Healers in Ba Huang City. It seems as though he have business connections with Yue Qing Qian and there exists a friendship between them. He only healed her because they are friends and it’s best we let this matter go.”
Wang Jian frowned: “Brother, why should we let it go?”
Li Mu smiled: “Simple, in the whole Ba Huang City there are not many Healers who have passed their promotion quest let alone achieve a high level and is able to use [Heal] so efficiently. Not only that, Xiao Yao Zi Zai has been leveling up his Alchemy to Lv. 4 and has so much talent. We need him more as a friend than a foe. Let go of your grudge and think about the future of our group.
Wang Jian mumbles loudly to himself, but did not press the matter any farther.
Besides them, the 50 year old archer sitting in the grass, Lian Po, holding his longbow said: “Your grudge against some kid is too simple minded. Do you actually think we had a chance of winning against Prague today? You think Prague would consider us as a worthy foe? Think again! Prague only had around 70+ players today while there are thousands of their guild members still at Ba Huang City. What about us? With us 4 as the main pillar of our group, adding our family, friends and relatives our total number is less than 40 people and you wish to recklessly attack a large guild like Prague? Today’s victory was due to luck, but then again we actually lost the battle.
Li Mu nodded and smiled: “Ah, yes, long-term perspective is what we need to focus on. Right now we are underfunded, understaffed, and no guild; we are basically just a group of people right now. However, thanks to several of our people leveling up fast and networking with other people, we manage to build our group up to 40+ people. I’ve heard that, Deng, and other guilds have dominated Ba Huang City with recruitments. They have way more money and contacts than we do. Lets us work hard and size every opportunity we get to grow and create a new guild!
Wang Jian: “Brother, you sound like an anchorman right now and that’s pretty useless… We already resurrected, but I doubt we can walk around freely, what should we do?”
Li Mu stood up, returning his sword back to his sheath, laughing: “Yan Zhao Warrior’s guild members have also resurrected, soon a lot of Prague members will want our heads. We simply have to immediately return to the city and avoid any useless fights. We failed in killing the BOSS and taking the treasure, I also don’t want to be fighting Yan Zhao again!”
“Alright, let’s go!”
One of their members pulled out multiple teleport scrolls and started handing it out to everyone to return to Ba Huang City.
I’m still here in my Soul form standing next to my body, afraid to resurrect because someone might still be here to ambush me.
“You can revive now handsome, hee hee!”
Coming out within a tall bush is a graceful figure carrying a Blood Dagger, Yue Qing Qian! She playfully came over and said: “I have a wider range of vision than you, trust me there’s no one else here, revive already!”
I successfully resurrected and immediately use [Hemostasis] and [Heal] on myself. My Hp recovers while I started taking some Seven-Star pills. Looking at Yue Qing Qian, I smiled: “Qing Qian, what a coincidence huh…”
Qing Qian giggled: “That was clever of you… do you want to go out to dinner with me?”
I shook my head: “I can’t… spending most of my time studying Chinese Classical, quite busy…”
“Well…” Yue Qing Qian looked at me and said: “Xiao Yao, thank you for helping me out. Without you we would had fail to retrieve the BOSS treasures. We didn’t think the Generals and their group would be this strong, with just a small group of people we almost got wipe out…”
I sighed: “Unfortunately, I was just trying to help you. I didn’t expect Wang Jian to initiate a fight with me and wanting to kill me. I have offended the Generals group and now returning to Ba Huang City with no Icy Herbs to craft..”
Behind me, a strong voice: “Well, you should join Prague! Prague’s door is always opened for you!”
On the hillside, a person carrying a sword makes his way towards us. It is Yan Zhao Warrior and this time I have much more respect towards him! He is indeed a master level swordsman to create [Warrior’s Strike], perhaps in reality he practices swordsmanship.
Walking next to Yan Zhao, carrying a pretty Purple Dagger, Yue Wei Liang smiles: “So you’re Xiao Yao who my sister constantly talks about, you should join us in Prague so you can be together with her…”
Several members from Prague started teasing: “Ha ha, yes, together forever!!”
Yue Qing Qian face turns red with embarrassment, Blood Dagger raised: “Anyone wanna say that again? I’ll kill him!”
Everyone went silent…
I put my Ancient Double-Edge Spear away, smiled: “Thank you Uncle Yan Zhao for your kindness, but I do not want to join any guild. I’m used to being a solo player in the game.”
Yan Zhao Warrior stood tall, looked at me and proudly said: “That is a comfortable way to play. I know exactly what you mean, but… in this world there isn’t just one person who travels the road, there will always be someone to stop you or to help you. Join Prague guild and I can… I can give you the position of Elder, what do you think of that?”
I could not help myself from laughing out loud: “No thank you. I will not join any guild, unless… unless my brothers return again to conquer Destiny with me!”
“Your brothers?” Yan Zhao Warrior surprised: “Are you guys a group or a guild?”
“Where have you guys play before? Conquest? King? the first few games of VRMMORPG and the groups and guilds I know very well, tell me your group’s name…”
“Zhan Long…” I said a little embarrassed.
Yan Zhao thought to himself for a long time: “Ahem.. I don’t recall hearing about that group of people, but I can see a lot of potential in you Xiao Yao as a guild leader. Anyways, just think about join us whether you’re alone or in a group. You see.. poor Yue Qing Qian, who’s always with me, keeps mentioning about an interesting Healer Swordsman to me and …”
Yan Zhao Warrior said in a low voice: “She doesn’t have a boyfriend and she takes care of her elderly mother every day, a really good girl!”
Yue Qing Qian’s face turns bright red: “You bad Uncle! Do you want to die too!?!”
Yan Zhao Warrior laughed and said: “There’s too much that is needed to be done, I can’t die yet! You and Xiao Yao continue to do business and provide us with more high quality Mana Pills. We will continue to challenge various maps and continue our expansion! Money won’t be a problem for your Pills…”
I nodded: “Okay”
As Yan Zhao took his leave, I shouted: “Yan Zhao Warrior, wait!”
“I would like to ask how you created your [Warrior’s Strike]? I tried to create my own skills by practicing repeatedly, but I couldn’t acquire a custom made skill.”
Yan Zhao Warrior burst out laughing: “Well… I will wait for you to join us in Prague then I will tell you…”
thinking to myself: “I have a custom made skill too…”
Well I won’t be asking this stingy Yan Zhao Warrior for help!
I turn around and looked at Yue Qing Qian,: “Give me back my Icy Herbs ! I want to craft my Lv. 4 Mana pills…”
