Chapter 18: Hong Xide
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
While Li Xiaonian and Gu Tong were grinding by the underground river.
The members of the Wolf Walk Guild were searching for Li Xiaonian’s trace all over the base, but all ended up disappointed.
“Fuck, June is only a lv1 player. Where can he hide?”
“Well… Was he already killed by monsters and dumped in the wilderness?”
“Umm, it’s possible.”
In “Star Wind”, if a player exited the game in the wilderness, his avatar was easily killed by monsters. Therefore, players wouldn’t go offline in the wilderness unless they had to. And they usually chose a safe area to exit the game.
At this time, Li Xiaonian had been forced to quit the game.
It was not because he was hungry but because his sister Li Xiaoyue made him.
As soon as Li Xiaonian took off the virtual helmet, he saw his sister’s aggrieved face. She said, “Brother, do you know what time it is now? The sun is already up high but you are still playing the game. I’m starving.”
“Didn’t Mom make breakfast?”
“Mother said you were going to do it, and then she continued to play the game.”
She was used to having breakfast as soon as she got up. Suddenly, her mother didn’t make breakfast, which was difficult for her to adapt.
Li Xiaonian patted his own head and took out a hundred yuan bill. “Go downstairs to buy four breakfasts. Remember not to buy fried food, and the rest is your pocket money.”
Needless to say, his mother must have been fascinated by “Star Wind”. After all, her legs were paralyzed for more than ten years, but now she became a normal person in the game. Not many people could resist this temptation.
Seeing the 100-yuan bill, Li Xiaoyue’s eyes glowed, and all her grievances were gone instantly. She quickly took the bill, saying cheerfully, “No problem. Mission accepted.”
Li Xiaoyue trotted out of the door cheerfully.
Thinking of his sister’s sly eyes just now, Li Xiaonian hurriedly shouted, “Don’t buy less breakfast just to get more pocket money. If the breakfast is not enough, I won’t give you the pocket money.”
Unfortunately, Li Xiaonian underestimated his sister’s desire for pocket money.
Ten minutes later.
“Brother, I bought 10 steamed buns. They are so big and white. I just need to eat one, Mom two, and the remaining seven are enough for you and Dad.
Li Xiaonian’s face turned dark. “I gave you 100 yuan and these are all you bought? Can’t you buy some milk and meat buns?”
Li Xiaoyue nervously hid the remaining 90 yuan and pouted. “Humph, you said before the breakfast sold outside is not clean. Milk is nutritious, but cold boiled water is not bad either. As for meat buns, the stuffing is all low-quality pork. Even if you don’t get sick after eating it, it will definitely do a lot of harm to your health.”
Li Xiaonian was speechless at his sister’s retort but still insisted, “No, I just want to eat meat buns and milk. Buy them from Aunt Wang’s shop. Aunt Wang is a good person and the food she sells is of guaranteed quality.”
But Li Xiaoyue rejected it flatly. “If you want me to run errands again, you’ll have to pay me again. The remaining 90 yuan is already mine.”
Li Xiaonian took a look at his wallet, in which there was only the money compensated by the Gorilla Internet Café, and the denominations of the notes were all 100. He said helplessly, “Forget it, I’ll buy it myself. If you want to eat something good, you must use your own pocket money. Do you need me to buy milk for you?”
Li Xiaoyue swallowed but still refused. “Humph, I like to eat steamed buns.”
“Fine, as you like.”
Li Xiaonian washed his face, brushed his teeth, and went out.
It was the summer vacation, and students were all on vacation. When Li Xiaonian went out, he encountered many familiar faces.
“Brother Xiaonian, good morning.”
A chubby little girl greeted Li Xiaonian politely.
“Hi, Lina, good morning.”
After greeting a few acquaintances, Li Xiaonian came to the “Delicious” breakfast shop.
There were many people buying breakfast here. They were all acquaintances, greeting each other with a nod.
Soon, it was Li Xiaonian’s turn.
The proprietress said to Li Xiaonian with a smile when she saw him, “Hi, Xiaonian, what would you like? You are an example of the kids in our community. I can give you 30% off.”
Li Xiaonian hurriedly refused, “No, no, I appreciate your kind offer but I can’t accept it. I’d like four bottles of fresh milk, two meat buns, two vegetable buns, and two vermicelli buns.”
It included his sister’s share. From what he knew of his sister, although she said no, she would definitely eat when he brought the food back.
Aunt Wang swiftly packed the food for Li Xiaonian and asked, “It seems that the college entrance examination results have come out. Which prestigious college are you planning to apply for?”
Slightly embarrassed, Li Xiaonian responded ambiguously, “I’m still considering.”
Bad news had wings. He could be sure that if Aunt Wang knew that he didn’t do well in the exam, the news would definitely spread throughout the community in less than two days.
Li Xiaonian stiffened and stared at the gate of the community with red eyes.
It was him! Hong Xide.
At this moment, a small, muscular man stood at the gate of the community. The man had dark skin, but his face looked very honest.
That person was the culprit who killed his parents in his previous life. This face often appeared in his nightmares and would never be forgotten by him.
The abrupt change of Li Xiaonian’s attitude startled the proprietress. “Xiaonian?”
After returning to his senses, Li Xiaonian took a slight breath and calmed himself down before he asked with feigned indifference, “Aunt Wang, who is the man at the gate of our community?”
Aunt Wang looked at the gate of the community. “That man? I don’t know his name. I only know that he is a new security guard in our community.”
Li Xiaonian nodded and hurried home after paying the money.
“Damn, the gangster appeared in the community two months in advance. This is something I didn’t know in my previous life. No, we have to move today, and then I will try to work out a way to subdue or kill the gangsters in advance.”
Although there were many annoying neighbors in the community, in general, there were more good neighbors, and he couldn’t just stand by and watch the bad fortune come to these innocent people.
He went home, put the breakfast he had just bought on the table and said to his sister who was staring at the food greedily. “Just eat. I have a lot of things to tend to today.”
Li Xiaoyue grabbed the milk and meat buns and gobbled them down. “What… are you… going to do today?”
“I’ll tell you later. I’ll make a call first.”
Li Xiaonian walked to the balcony, took out his cell phone, and called his friend Ling Baifei.
After he called four times, the call finally got through.
Ling Baifei’s lazy voice came from the phone. “Hey, Curve Wrecker Li, why are you in such a hurry and called me four times in a row? Don’t you know it’s summer vacation time and everyone is busy playing “Star Wind”?”
Li Xiaonian directly stated his request. “Xiaobai, your family has many connections. Can you help me find a bag-check house? My family needs to stay in the house for a period of time. This is very urgent.”
Ling Baifei shivered. “Has your family’s house been forcibly auctioned by the court?”Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
He knew about Li Xiaonian’s family conditions. Other than their house being auctioned off, he could think of no other reason why Li Xiaonian was in such a hurry to rent a new house.
“Um… not for that reason, but pretty much the same. I’m not able to tell you now, and it can’t be explained clearly in a few words. Anyway, can you find me a house today? It doesn’t matter how much the rent is. I only have one request, that is, we want to move in today.”
“OK, I’ll take care of it right away. I’ll call you if I find one.”
“Okay, thanks. I’m waiting for your call.”
Hanging up the phone, Li Xiaonian entered his mother’s room.
