Waiting For You Online - Chapter 45
Don’t Admit Defeat The other man’s teasing tone also made He Jin a bit defensive: “Then how many do you think you’ll score?” Qin Yu: “I think I’ll have to score at least the same as you before you have to treat me to dinner.
” He Jin laughed: “Your goal is high enough!” Qin Yu glanced at him: “You think I can’t?” He Jin: “It’s not that, I have only taught you about grammar, I don’t know your comprehensive level.
But I think you shouldn’t put a set goal on exams, the greater you hope the greater your disappointment would be if you failed to achieve that goal.
My score of 680 last year was merely good luck, I usually get around 650 in mock tests.
” Qin Yu was unconvinced: “Then what if I scored higher than you?” If Qin Yu said he wanted to get 650, then the probability was still quite large.
But if anyone could actually get 680 that easily, He Jin wouldn’t be asked to give lectures to some juniors a few days ago.
“Oh, if you can really score higher than me, then I will call you ‘gege’.
” After so many years of being forced to study, the one thing He Jin felt most confident in was his test results.
Not to mention, one month ago Qin Yu still said that he was bad at grammar, how much could he have improved in so little time? Qin Yu: “Even if you call me gege, I’ll only feel cool the moment I hear it, but after that it won’t really matter.
” He Jin: “What do you want then? Treat you to eat? ” .
Qin Yu sighed: “To tell you the truth, I’m not really sure I can get 680… But it’s not easy to admit, somehow it feels like I’m betraying my character…” He Jin laughed, scoring in exams wasn’t like buying lottery tickets, there was no relying too much on luck there.
This guy felt that his exam result “doesn’t seem good” yet he still dared to place a bet on it.
This side of Qin Yu somehow seemed very cute to He Jin.
“I don’t need you to score higher than me, just 680 is fine.
You can ask me anything if you get this score.
” He Jin teased him.
A hint of smile flashed in Qin Yu’s eyes: “Anything?” Continue reading on MYB0XN0 V E L.
COM “As long as it’s not a crime, or you telling me to do something embarrassing like walking around the school naked.
” There really were students in the university who secretly gambled with things like this as punishment.
But, according to He Jin’s understanding of Qin Yu’s character, he felt sure that the other man would not ask such an excessive request from him.
Then again, He Jin also did not believe that he would lose.
Qin Yu rubbed the back of his neck and pretended to be reluctant as he said: “I’ll need some amazing luck to score 680, you don’t cheat then!” He Jin told him: “If you are afraid I won’t go through with it, then you can find me in my room.
” The corner of Qin Yu’s mouth hooked up into a smile.
He raised his finger to point at He Jin and said arrogantly, “He Jin, you just wait.
” His confident move made He Jin feel something was amiss, he almost thought that the other man might really have the ability to score higher than him.
But He Jin quickly attributed it as the young man trying to bluff- anyway he had done this kind of gambling since childhood, and had yet to lost even once! The two men ran through the nearby lawn to return to the dormitory.
When they embarked on the road, there was a sudden screaming sound coming from the distance.
He Jin and Qin Yu turned their heads and saw several girls standing in fright under the streetlamp not far from them.
Maybe they were students who went out to karaoke during weekend night and had only returned to the dormitory after midnight.
Those girls were probably startled when they saw two shadows in the dark lawn area, causing one of them to scream.
Qin Yu waved in their direction and said, “Don’t be afraid, we are humans, not ghosts.
” He Jin was amused by Qin Yu’s reaction.
He bowed his head a bit, and put his palm to his lips to cover his laugh.
The light of the street lamp diffused past, slightly highlighting the appearance of Qin Yu and He Jin.
When the girls saw that the one talking to them was unexpectedly the school’s idol, they didn’t know whether to be surprised or happy.
Qin Yu smiled again and told them–“It’s already so late, be careful not to meet a real ghost on the way back to dormitory.
” Then he placed his hand on the small of He Jin’s back and said to him, “Let’s go.
” The girls looked at Qin Yu’s hand on He Jin’s back and were dumbfounded… After a long time, one of them finally said: “That person, isn’t he a junior?” “Who is he?” “It’s the guy who was carried in princess style by Qin Yu to the school hospital not too long ago…” “……What are they doing at this late hour?” “Maybe taking a walk…” “Walking on the lawn?” “And they are hurrying now…” “…” (=_=) “They’re not really…” “That…” …… Ah ah ah ah ah ah … Under the shower of the silver moonlight, in the depths of these girls’s hearts, a sudden sound of three-views being broken could be heard simultaneously.
On the other hand, He Jin merely felt that Qin Yu’s action was nothing more than a friendly pat, just something he did to indicate to him that they were leaving.
Back at the dormitory, He Jin took a look at the time and laughed: “I never thought that I would one day go back this late to the dormitory…” and he still wasn’t sleepy now, really incredible! Qin Yu: “You never stayed up at night? ” He Jin shook his head as they walked up the stairs: “I used to go to bed at 10 o’clock every day.
” Qin Yu: “Oh, but you are so late today, is it because of me?” He Jin: “Hahaha, of course not!” Qin Yu: “…” It was his own decision.
If He Jin himself didn’t want to try to change, he wouldn’t go out in the middle of the night even if the one calling him was his best friend.
They said good night respectively on the third floor.
He Jin washed his face before lying on his bed.
It didn’t take long before tiredness claimed him, and he fell asleep soon after.
The next night, He Jin went online and saw a message from Fire: “Ah Jin, use the husband and wife skill to come to my place.
” After asking Xiao Lin about this skill, He Jin imagined Fire’s appearance and said: “Shadow.
” There was some mist floating, and before he realized, He Jin already stood in front of Fire.
In the past, it was Fire who always appeared suddenly, but this time his turn had finally come.
However, instead of feeling excited, He Jin was actually nervous.
“Where is this?” He Jin looked at the empty room, with nothing but white walls and invisible roofs.
” He Jin was surprised and asked hesitantly, “You want to do PK with me?” Fire: “Remember I said that I want you to join my team?” He Jin: “Yeah…” Fire: “When we were doing dungeon yesterday, Dead Water, Leisure Cloud, etc.
, all of them could see that you have potential.
I also think that you do, so I want to take advantage of these two months to help you practice.
” He Jin thought back to yesterday when he was receiving praises from the team and felt his confidence rising.
The reason he didn’t want to participate in the competition before was not only because he lacked in self-confidence, but also because he had no helmet.
But these two conditions were fulfilled now, he really had no other reason to refuse Fire.
However, there was still one thing that bothered him: “Do we have to use our real information to register in the competition?” Fire: “As long as you use your game ID, the official will keep everything else confidential, because each helmet is bound to the player’s ID.
” He Jin didn;t doubt his words, “Okay, I’ll do my best.
” Fire changed Ah Jin into his ferret form and explained: “There will be spiritual pet PK game, and pairing PK game with domesticated master and their spiritual pet.
No matter in which one, you will have to stay in your prototype appearance.
” Ah Jin: “…” Fire continued, “Your prototype race determines that your PK mode is melee-attack.
I won’t use any magic attack for a while, once you switch to battle mode, you can do everything possible to get close and hurt me.
You win once you make my blood drop to below half.
” Having successfully killed many insects in the dungeon yesterday, He Jin was filled with confidence now.
He didn’t have patience to listen to Fire’s explanation, and immediately pulled out his claws to crush the soil below him, “Come on!” Fighting against the first ranking God in the game, it was the dream of every Demon God’s player! Fire: “Hehe.
” XiaoBai believed that Fire was almost the same as his brother, the dungeon boss Huo Ming- even if he had thick blood bar, it wasn’t impossible to defeat him.
However, he didn’t know that what waited for him at the end of the road was… a miserable death.
After they entered battle mode, He Jin immediately jumped up, aiming to scratch Fire! ……But hey, where is he? As He Jin was still confused over Fire’s sudden disappearance, he suddenly felt a flashing pain on his back as it was hit three times.
System Voice: “You have died.
” He was slayed three times and killed by Fire, just like how he killed the night bamboos yesterday.
He Jin’s vision turned black, and he lost connection with the helmet temporarily… Two seconds later, his vision came back, and Fire re-appeared in front of him: “Come again.
” He Jin still did not give up.
He looked at Fire and once again jumped up to scratch! …… Hey! He’s gone again!! Pain on his back, and He Jin only felt himself falling to the ground.
System Voice: “You have died.
” ” Ah Jin: “…” He didn’t know how many times this event happened.
He Jin’s self-confidence which was once brimming, was beaten again and again by Fire until it was thoroughly exhausted.
After dying countless times, the newly-resurrected He Jin stayed curled on the ground while clasping his trembling paws, no longer dared to jump up… Fortunately, the pain registered in the game was only of a small amount, otherwise his spine would have long been torn open by Fire! During his last death, He Jin finally could see Fire’s movement a little– his speed was too fast! How strong was his awareness skill for him to be able to make predictions before his opponent even moved? Fire smiled at him: “Why aren’t you coming?” Ah Jin stayed lying on the ground, trying to use his Meng appearance to appeal to this opponent of his: “Can I take a rest?” “The enemy won’t give you time to rest.
” After saying this, Fire suddenly flew closer and pushed his claws toward the white ferret.
He Jin dared not rush to die again this time, but he instinctively turned and fled.
The ferret fled faster than anyone else, He Jin had already experienced it from actual combat experience.
But he actually ran even faster now, pushed by his own feeling and reaction– and yet he was still caught.
Fire grabbed the fur on the back of his neck and pulled him back.
People would always cling to the door of life, He Jin was no different.
He struggled and clawed around, but still couldn’t escape.
In the end, he simply closed eyes and prepared himself.
However several seconds passed, and he still wasn’t disconnected from his helmet! Fire was using a single hand to carry him.
He stared as the little white creature in his hold opened his black eyes and asked teasingly: “Afraid?” Ah Jin: “…” Fire softly asked: “Still want to play?” Ah Jin: “I admit defeat…” Really too… huu huu… wronged … ! (Q A Q) Fire narrowed his eyes, his face was adorned with a gentle smile as he said to him, “First lesson in aiming to be strong: do not admit defeat.
” Then he gently applied force to his hand and twisted the ferret’s neck.
Ah Jin: “…” QAQ Proofreader: Eileen
