Topic: Shocking News All Servers First Snoring Awareness Kill By LinShan’s Passionate Sword Guild!
Content：Global chat has been talking about this, it seems to be true, the drops were posted as well,
but after asking about details on the kill, everyone only has two words: No comments.
1L: What?? How??
2L: I don’t believe it too, so far there hasn’t been any warriors with gear that can withstand Snoring
Awareness’s double punch
3L: I’m from DaiShan server, the most famous pervert guild in our server had once tried downing
Snoring Awareness for a whole month and still didn’t succeed, how did this Passionate Sword
guild who’s not even in the top three guilds on the new server do it? I’m calling this out.
4L: Although I don’t want to believe it, but it’s the truth, I’m from LinShan, my friend’s in Passionate
Sword, he’s the one who told me personally about it, but he’s not willing to expose how they
5L: I also don’t think they’re boasting, reason 1, although Passionate Sword isn’t considered one of
the top guilds in LinShan, but they’re also quite strong, they don’t have to create this kind of lies,
if the lie is exposed there’s no benefits to them at all; reason 2, the drops they showed on global
chat have really not been seen in the game before, there’s also no records of them in the
database, other than Snoring Awareness, I can’t think of any other bosses in the game that
hasn’t been defeated before. So I think they’ve really succeeded in killing Snoring Awareness,
whereas for how they did it, that’s open to questioning.
6L: Since they are able to kill Snoring Awareness, why can’t they share the method? Such a selfish
guild is also a weirdo.
7L: They probably only want to keep it for themselves, if not they did it through bugs and are too
embarrassed to let people know about it.
8L: If it’s through bugs it’s still acceptable, how do you know they didn’t use hacks? Hacking dogs
die! Requesting for GM to look into this thoroughly!
[Admin] LittleRights: Report, old Wolf is offline, disable the alarm!
[Admin] CuteEgg: Ahahahahahah~~~
[Admin] LittleCloth: Fuck I was about to die holding it in!
[Admin] MourningMo: You guys ^^!
[Admin] LittleBottomDon’tRunAway: A bunch of useless fellows, being on the same battlefront
as you is an insult to my acting skills.
[Admin] CuteEgg: How can you say this, Sister Away, my acting for this freshman character is
considered world class!
[Admin] LittleCloth: That’s because you’re acting as yourself.
[Admin] CuteEgg: So mean (＃｀皿′)
[Admin] DevotedCouple: Ok, everyone settle down, let me give a summary.
[Admin] DevotedCouple: Three months ago the incident of old Wolf’s ex-wife Bell scamming
money happened in our guild, then Bell reappeared again one month
later, claiming that she’s lost her memories in a car accident and her
account was hacked, there were too many coincidences, making it too
difficult to believe.
[Admin] DevotedCouple: We’ve already suspected it then, with old Wolf’s and Bell’s relationship,
there was no way he didn’t have access to her account, so to protect
her reputation, he found someone else to take over this account, and
this person is also who we refer to as the second Bell.
[Admin] DevotedCouple: So as not to expose old Wolf, we privately came up with a “Protect the
Endangered Wild Wolf Plan”, without being discovered by both of
them, we accepted the appearance of the second Bell using the
previous Bell’s identity.
[Admin] DevotedCouple: So no matter what kind of ridiculous excuses that Bell gave, including
her ambiguous relationship with LuoMing Wind, and that disciple of
unknown origin, we’ve accepted them all without any hesitation.
[Admin] DevotedCouple: Today’s Snoring Awareness incident has confirmed our suspicions
that the person behind Bell has changed, only that at first we had
thought old Wolf had found a newbie that didn’t know how to play
the game to replace her, but now it seems like we were very wrong.
[Admin] LittleRights: The skills of the previous Bell wasn’t too bad, but she didn’t like to speak,
other than old Wolf, her relationships with everyone else was so-so, the
second Bell is an extrovert, very good at making friends, if you said that
she got a personality change after the car accident it’s not impossible,
but if you say that after the car accident she even learnt how to kill
Snoring Awareness, that’s a bit over the top.
[Admin] LittleCloth: Also, looking at her command today, it’s considered god-like, calm and
steady, she’s very familiar with the skills of all the professions, without a
long period of experience accumulation, there’s no way she’ll be able to
do it like this.
[Admin] MourningMo: That video she mentioned, I saw it in the guide for QieLan dungeon
before, but because we didn’t have a druidic cleric in the guild, so I
didn’t bother about it. Now that I think about it, when the second
Bell appeared she was already a druid type, there’s really very few
people who would train a druid, long ago this build was very popular,
but it subsided very quickly.
[Admin] CuteEgg: Also also, did you guys find out, after killing Snoring Awareness, Brother
Wolf and Sister Bell didn’t say a single word in the guild chat, as though
they’re hiding something on purpose!
[Admin] LittleBottomDon’tRunAway: Might be because they’re afraid of people asking about
it, after all there are too many suspicious details, if we
didn’t plan this from the start to never ask anything that
may expose Bell’s identity no matter what happened,
someone would have started asking something already.
[Admin] DevotedCouple: From the second Bell’s performance recently, she seems to be very
concerned about exposing her skills, always hiding something on
purpose, this time it should be an accident.
[Admin] DevotedCouple: Anyway this incident we’ll need to handle it quietly, I think many
people would come and ask us for tips to kill Snoring Awareness
after this news spread, maybe even people from other servers may
come and look for us, for now we’ll have to insist it’s our guild’s
secret information, we can’t share it for now.
[Admin] DevotedCouple: The core members of our guild, the co-founding members, other
than Uncle He and FlowerHouse all know about this plan, Uncle is too
frank he can’t hide anything, Flower is best friends with old Wolf, it
also just happens that the both of them were absent tonight, this
could also be God’s will.
[Admin] LittleRights: Hai, but this time there would definitely be a lot of unfounded
rumours, people will say that we did it through bugs, or even through
[Admin] LittleCloth: People should be able to adapt to circumstances, this grievance is nothing,
also, didn’t old Wolf’s running method look like he’s making use of a bug?
[Admin] MourningMo: Being wronged is nothing, it’s just that I’m really not good at lying to
[Admin] CuteEgg: That’s right, when can we stop acting, and just accept the actual second Bell?
To be honest, I quite like her >_<
[Admin] DevotedCouple: As long as old Wolf is willing to continue acting for a day, our plan
will continue for a day, in these days such a pure-hearted wild wolf
is already endangered, our Passionate Sword guild will have to
continue protecting this creature all the way to the end.
[Admin] LittleBottomDon’tRunAway: I’m more for looking forward to the two of them
mixing together, my intuition tells me, the second Bell is
definitely a guy!
XuXian woke up and opened his bedroom door, the first thing he saw was LingYang holding two buns in his hands while biting onto another one, standing outside his room waiting for him. Upon seeing him coming out from the room, he immediately presented the buns in his hands.
“Flower, I specially woke up early to go to Cafeteria 2 to buy these for you, they’re still hot.”
“… Are you trying to apologise with buns? Also, would normal people use Cafeteria 2’s buns as apology gifts?”
“Hai, Flower, please just forgive me~~ A great man rarely stoops to pettiness of harbours grievance for past wrongs, please?”
“The only way for me to forgive you, is for you to answer my questions honestly.”
“Just ask! I will be sure to answer truthfully accordingly!”
“What exactly is your relationship with BaiLong?”
LingYang hiccuped, “This, actually I’m not very familiar with him…”
“You’re still lying to me? He’s already told me about it, you’ve known each other for 16 years already!”
“Faint, what else did he mention then?”
“He already told me everything, including that incident when you got bit on your ass by a dog when you were thirteen!”
“What the fuck he even told you about this! That guy is asking for it as usual!”
“You better just confess honestly, if you don’t confess you’ll definitely die, after your confession I might still leave your corpse intact.”
“Wuwuwu my gentle Flower has been corrupted in one night by that stupid white dragon, I’m going to settle this with him!”
“Sure go ahead!”
“… I don’t dare to.”
(T/N: 白砻 – Bai2Long2 sounds exactly the same as 白龙 – Bai2Long2, which translates to white dragon.)
“Forget it, I’ll just ask you a question, if you still don’t tell the truth I’ll immediately send him your address and contact number.”
“Flower you can’t be like this!”
“So do you have that kind of relationship with him?”
“What kind of relationship is that kind of relationship?” LingYang pretended to not understand.
XuXian raised his phone.
“You don’t have to scare me, little white dragon’s school doesn’t allow them to use their phones.” LingYang smiled gleefully.
“Sorry, I also have his landline, his QQ, his MSN, his e-mail, and his BBS account.”
“Faint, you’re actually the one having that kind of relationship with him right!”
LingYang suddenly felt something was amiss, “What, could it be that you…?”
XuXian was silent.
“What the fuck are you serious!!!”
“I just have something to say, if its yours I’ll definitely not take it, if its not I won’t give it up.”
“Wow, how come I’ve never discovered you’re such a decisive person? As expected, you can never judge a book by its cover.”
“Life is tough, carpe diem, if you hesitate all the good guys will be taken by others.”
LingYang placed both his hands on the other’s shoulders, “Nice one, Flower, I’m on your side for this.”
He raised his right palm, “I, Little Antelope swear to god, my relationship with Little White Dragon, is so clean that it’s like Romeo and Juliet, Liang ShanBo and Zhu Yingtai, as well as Jack and Rose!”
“That’s still considered clean?”
“Even in death it’s impossible for us to be together!”
“Are you telling the truth?”
“I swear I’m telling the truth this time, Older Brother isn’t lying to you, also, Older Brother will definitely fully support you.”
“Then when you said that he was straight…?”
“No no no, I was just bullshitting then, Little White Dragon was born a homosexual, he’s even more of a homosexual than me, have you ever seen a dragon whose body is straight before? That one must have been stuck in a doorframe.”
“But…” XuXian had the answer to the biggest question in his heart, but he hesitated again, “Isn’t he a bit too flirtatious?”
“How could that be! Although Little White Dragon’s looks are of the playboy type, his words are very frivolous, but he’s still deeply traditional, this is all thanks to his dad, I’ve known him for 16 years, I can still assure you of this point.”
“What’s the relationship between your two families?”
“When my dad was younger he worked as a public servant for his dad, he was pretty well taken care of by them, after that they always worked together, and also as we’re both of the same age, we pretty much grew up together.”
XuXian pondered over it, “It seems like there should be a generation gap or something?”
“That’s right, his father had a child late, my dad had a child early, at that time our country was prosperous, the war had ceased, the citizens could live peacefully, every soldier responded to the country’s call of repopulation, the number of the future pillars of society in our compound doubled within a year, even the childcare centres increased the enrolment numbers.”
“The children in our compound, according to seniority should call Little White Dragon uncle, when he was young he really made us call him uncle, when he was a bit older he forced us to call him little General Bai, now whoever he catches will have to call him Young Master Bai, now you know exactly how narcissistic he is right, hey, if you ask me, your biggest love rival isn’t others, but it’s Little White Dragon himself.”
LingYang thought about it and still felt something was not right, “Hai, but I’m still very curious, what exactly do you like about Little White Dragon? Did anyone tell you your aesthetic standards are a bit strange?”
“… Someone who likes Wu GuanFeng has no rights to say this!!”
Although LingYang had not come up with an excuse for being able to kill Snoring Awareness, but he still had to go online, however, the longer he spent online, the more uneasy LingYang felt.
No one actually came up to ask him about why he knew how to kill this boss, everyone behaved as though it was expected of Bell to be able to do so.
While the thing he was most worried about, that his own identity would be exposed, and that members from his previous guild would come up and look for him actually did not happen, outsiders only knew they killed Snoring Awareness, but the way they did it was not spread outside their guild, now that people were saying they either used bugs or hacks, they even did not come out and clarify it.
This was really too strange!
[System] <Husband,PleaseDoItGently> is now online.
[Whisper] Husband,PleaseDoItGently: Master~~ You’ve overplayed your hand this time!
[Whisper] Bell: … This was an accident.
[Whisper] Husband,PleaseDoItGently: You being like this will cause trouble for the both
of us! They will definitely come and look for us!
[Whisper] Bell: I thought that that would happen to, but didn’t you notice, the atmosphere
in the guild is a little strange?
[Whisper] Husband,PleaseDoItGently: I didn’t notice anything, what’s strange?
[Whisper] Bell: From start till end there was nobody who came and ask me how I did it,
as though taking it for granted.
[Whisper] Husband,PleaseDoItGently: ( ⊙ o ⊙) That’s really a little frightening!
[Whisper] Bell: Also, we’ve never released that method to public, now people are saying
[Whisper] Husband,PleaseDoItGently: Hacking is better than exposing yourself, I support
[Whisper] Bell: Anyway, this guild is a little strange, we both have to be careful in the future.
[Whisper] Husband,PleaseDoItGently: Master saying this has suddenly made me feel
shivers down my back!! Why don’t we stop staying
here, let’s run away ok?
[Whisper] Bell: No we can’t, I want to be with your master’s husband =。=
[Whisper] Husband,PleaseDoItGently: Master~~~~~~~~~（/TДT)/
[System] <NightWolf> is now online.
[Whisper] Bell: If your tilde line is too long, you’ll be locked in that little black house! Your
master’s husband is now online, let me sound him out first.
[Whisper] Bell: Husband you’re here~~~ \(≧▽≦)/~
[Whisper] NightWolf: So how, have you thought of an excuse already?
[Whisper] Bell: Heehee, why are we talking about excuses here, how hurtful ~\(≧▽≦)/~
[Whisper] NightWolf: If you can’t think of any, want me to help you with it?
[Whisper] Bell: Oh? What is it? Tell me ~\(≧▽≦)/~
[Whisper] NightWolf: Little Antelope…
LingYang’s heart stuttered.
[Whisper] Bell: You know about it already?
