Without Gu Tong’s help, he couldn’t leave the underground cave, so he just waited quietly.
While waiting, Li Xiaonian opened his friend list and sent a message to Kitten. “I am now at level 10. If you have time, ask NPC Kuiluo what we need to do next and how we can rescue the former base leader Wufeng.”
After a while, Kitten replied. “Wow, how did you do it? In such a short time, you not only escaped from the pursuit of the Wolf Walk Guild, but also leveled up to ten! Even I am only level eight. Come on, tell me the secret of your upgrade. Maybe I can recommend you to the Red Legion. Then you don’t have to pretend to be a member of the Red Legion anymore.”
Li Xiaonian hesitated, but after thinking about it, he refused and replied. “Sorry, I can’t tell you.”
Although Kitten seemed to be on his side, he couldn’t fully trust her.
Kitten: “Humph, miser!”
Kitten: “Fine, I’m a broad-minded person. I’ll get back to you after I return to the base and ask Kuiluo for you.”
June: “OK, thank you.”
Twenty minutes later, the underground river was surging.
A person was thrown out of the water.
Without the skills of Li Xiaonian, Tianyu fell heavily on his face.
Aggrieved, Tianyu looked at Gu Tong who was gradually appearing behind him and complained, “Can’t you be gentle?”
Gu Tong looked embarrassed. “Sorry, I thought you could land smoothly just like June.”
His words made Tianyu even angrier. “June is so strong. Can I be compared with him?”
Then Tianyu turned his eyes to Li Xiaonian, looked him up and down, and said, “Tsk, Brother June, It seems to be the first time I have come so closely to you. You look just like a normal person. How did you manage to fool everyone?”
Li Xiaonian rubbed his nose awkwardly and sent a message to Tianyu in private. “When you pay Gu Tong 1000 gold coins, pay him another 5000 gold coins for me, OK? I’ll owe you the money, and I’ll pay you 6000 gold coins back with interest.”
Tianyu was surprised and responded privately, “What happened? Why do you need to pay him so much money? He robbed you?”
“He didn’t ask for the money; I promised it myself. I promised him if he protected me, I would pay him 5,000 gold coins when I reached lv10, and another 5,000 gold coins when I left the Skyfire Base safely. I’m lv10 now, so I should pay him this money. And I need him to do something for me later. Of course, as I observed, Gu Tong is reliable. Don’t look down upon him because of the money. The money is what he deserves.”
“Haha, June, why do you always ask me to pay for you? I already know your family conditions are average. No, to be exact, your family is poor. Are you sure you can pay me back?”
Li Xiaonian secretly curled his lips and sent a message. “It’s up to you, but if you don’t lend me the money, we’re no longer friends.”
“Alright, alright, isn’t it just 5,000 gold coins? I can lend it to you, but you’ve gotta call me “Big Brother”, affectionately and respectfully.” After sending the message, Tianyu looked at Li Xiaonian provocatively.
Seeing Tianyu’s triumphant look, Li Xiaonian just wanted to kick this guy flying, but unfortunately, money talked.
So Li Xiaonian simply said, “Big Brother, time to keep your words. Now pay the money for me.”
Not expecting Li Xiaonian to do it so readily, Tianyu thought to himself: Why do I not have the slightest sense of accomplishment? No, if this bastard reaches for me next time, I’ve gotta make him do something difficult. It can’t be that simple.
Tianyu sent a transaction application to Gu Tong.
Seeing the 6000 gold coins in the trading column, Gu Tong was taken aback. “Why so many?”
Li Xiaonian responded. “I promised you that if I reach level ten, I’ll pay you a bonus of 5000 gold coins. I am level ten now.”
“You’re level ten?!” Gu Tong couldn’t believe it.
“Yup,” Li Xiaonian shrugged and made up a story. “I accidentally killed a powerful boss and got a lot of merits, enough for me to level up to 10.”
Gu Tong looked at the messy ground and couldn’t help asking, “That boss in the pool?”
“Yes, it is.”
Gu Tong gave a thumbs up in surprise. “Although I don’t know how you killed it, I have to say you are really awesome. Even if it were me, I could only have run away when I met it.”
Gu Tong happily accepted the 6000 gold coins. He deserved the money, so he took it without any guilt.
Tianyu looked at Li Xiaonian in surprise, too. “Are you kidding me? Did you kill a boss alone? What equipment did the boss drop?”
Li Xiaonian readily took out the [Sea King Sniper Rifle], showed it to the two of them, and made up another story. “I was just lucky. I happened to have a powerful prop that could restrain the boss. Otherwise, even if the Wolf Walk Guild turns out in full force, they may not necessarily be able to kill the boss.”
By emphasizing how difficult it was to kill the boss, he tried to avoid upsetting Gu Tong. After all, this was his territory. If the boss was too easy to kill, Gu Tong might feel as if he was being robbed and would inevitably feel uncomfortable.

A rare energy sniper rifle.

Seeing the attributes of [Sea King Sniper Rifle], Tianyu’s breathing became tight, and he swallowed. “Brother, sell me this sniper rifle. I can pay you 20,000 gold coins for it.”
Li Xiaonian hurriedly retracted the sniper rifle. “No way. I need to use it now. Besides, although it is a Pseudo Divine Weapon, its level is too low, so it’s worth at most 5,000 gold coins, not worth 20,000.”
Tianyu immediately said anxiously, “I know, but I am not short of money. The goddamned Wolf Walk Guild has been trapping me here for so long. If I have this sniper rifle, I’ll give these bastards headshots one by one.”
“OK, I know you hate the Wolf Walk Guild. I can lend you this gun in due course. All you have to do now is to grind and earn merits.” Then Li Xiaonian changed the topic. “Have you brought the gold crystal over? Give it to me.”
Tianyu took out a piece of gold crystal from the package and handed it to Li Xiaonian, still not giving up. “Sell it to me, please~ If you need to use it, I can lend it to you, OK?”
Li Xiaonian rolled his eyes at Tianyu and adroitly inserted the gold crystal into the energy groove of the sniper rifle.
System: “Sea King Sniper Rifle successfully recharged. Now the energy is 100%.”
After that, Li Xiaonian took the gold crystal out of the groove, and only a tiny fraction of the 1.2 catties of gold crystal was consumed.
He put the remaining gold crystal into the package for future use.
“Gu Tong, teach Tianyu how to grind, and then take me out of here. I need you to protect me for some time. As for Tianyu, he can grind here alone.”
Gu Tong nodded. “No problem.”
Twenty minutes later.
Gu Tong turned into a cloud of water mist, and took Li Xiaonian to leave the underground river and return to the canyon river.
“You are familiar with the wilderness. Take me to the Discarded Mine.”
Gu Tong was curious. “What are you going to do over there? Aren’t you afraid of being discovered by the Wolf Walk Guild?”
“I’m going there to get something. If the Wolf Walk Guild discovers me, I’ll jump into the river. At that time, please take me away.”
“Okay.” Gu Tong didn’t continue to ask.
The two swam upstream, and after more than ten minutes, Li Xiaonian left the river and climbed a small hill, while Gu Tong remained in the state of transparent water mist, following Li Xiaonian’s side.
Li Xiaonian set up the heavy sniper rifle and looked at the Discarded Mine through the scope of the sniper rifle.
Then he paused.
Through the scope, Li Xiaonian saw Lang Burang at first glance. The corners of his mouth twitched slightly. “It seems that Tianyu’s curse has worked. I met you as soon as I came back. You can only blame your luck.”
Outside the Discarded Mine, the players of the Wolf Walk Guild were fighting fiercely with a quartz monster over six meters tall.
“Giant players pay attention to shielding. Element messengers and gunners increase the fire. Desolators and evolvas retreat and stay away.”
Xiaolang stood on the periphery of the crowd, directing the team to fight. As the vice-president, Lang Burang stood on the side, watching quietly.
The Quartz Monster waved a huge fist and punched at the crowd.
The giant players hurriedly picked up the low-defense players and flung them behind them. Although the giant players had high health points and strong defense, they were still sent flying backward by this strike from the boss.
Although the war seemed bloody, with a steady stream of treatments from war-doctor players, the players weren’t killed much.
“Very good, continue to increase the fire.” Xiaolang nodded in satisfaction.
Bang, Bang, Bang… Puff… Crack…
Under the intensive attacks of the players, the health points of the quartz monster dropped drastically at a speed visible to the naked eye.
Lang Burang seemed to be supervising the battle, but in fact, he was observing the players.
He needed to observe the players’ combat abilities and select excellent seeds to replenish new blood for the Wolf Walk Guild.
The more he watched, the more he was satisfied, nodding from time to time. “That giant has a quick reaction. He can be the core of our guild.”
With this in mind, he said to the secretary Xueyue next to him. “Write down the names of the giant and the evolva, and then ask them if they are willing to receive elite training.”
“Okay.” Xueyue nodded and recorded the players’ names that he mentioned. Then she pointed ahead, saying, “Vice-president, that female war doctor in the blue uniform over there, I’ve observed her for a while. She’s always the first to cast healing techniques to the wounded giants. Shall I include her in the elite training list?”
Surprised, Lang Burang looked in the direction she was pointing and nodded. “Not bad, put her in the…”
Before he finished speaking, with a puff, his head burst like a watermelon, and his body slowly fell to the ground.
Xueyue was shocked by the sudden change and couldn’t react to it for quite a while.
Upon seeing this, the players next to her shouted, “Attention, attention, there was an enemy attack, and the Vice-President was killed.”
Hearing this, everyone was shocked and turned their eyes to the area where the Vice-President was.
“Oh my god, the Vice-President was killed!”
“Oh, no! Who the hell dares to assassinate our Vice-President? Doesn’t he know that he’ll end up in the novice base forever just like Tianyu if he offends the Vice-President?”
“In the entire novice base, except for Tianyu and June, I can’t think of anyone who would dare to do this. Tianyu is hiding in the safe area. It shouldn’t be him. It’s probably June’s masterpiece.”
Knowing their Vice-President was assassinated, the combat team suddenly became chaotic.
The quartz monster waved its hands and punched fiercely at the crowd. A distracted giant player failed to immediately fling the low-defense players behind him, and seven or eight low-defense players were instantly killed.
“Calm down, calm down, follow the original combat plan. Don’t panic.” Xiaolang hurriedly shouted.
Suddenly, Xiaolang somehow felt a fit of palpitations. Thinking of the Vice-President’s death, he rolled backwards at once.Read latest Chapters at wuxiamobile.com Only
Xiaolang escaped the fatal blow, but the player behind him was not that lucky. The energy bullet shattered his shoulders. Although he was not shot to death instantly, the scorching effect of the energy bullet burned him to death.
Xiaolang clenched his fists sullenly and roared angrily, “The members of the first and second teams, come out and march toward the river. Find the sniper and kill him at all costs.”
