However, it wasn’t important whether he won or lost.
Today, Lu Li was destined to win. He had grown up in the common district, living a difficult life like a dog.
Who would have thought that one day, he would be able to earn the money to cure his sister’s disease that, establish a gaming club, and marry someone who was a goddess in so many young people’s hearts?
“Come on, you’re not willing to put on equipment yourself? It can’t be me forcing you,” Water Fairy said.
“Yeah, yep, I don’t want it,” Lu Li responded helplessly.
Although he was helpless, when he opened his mouth, his voice tricked no one. Water Fairy was right, however – she hadn’t forced Lu Li to give up two pieces of equipment, but rather, it was her two close friends.
To have a battle on the stage of a wedding was something that could happen only in a game.
Today, quite a few relatives on Water Fairy’s side had entered into the game. Many of them were still level 10 newbies, and all of them had been transported to the Black Sea Coast by Warlocks from the three-guild alliance. They had their own seats and had settled in exceptionally well.
A few of the older cousins in the Fan family had reached level 10, and had suddenly realized that this game ‘Dawn’ was actually quite fun.
And so, they began to get really into the game.
Some mercenary groups also attended and had brought generous gifts. They had been assigned to a table of themselves, but the ones sitting there weren’t actually people from the mercenary group.
If Square Root 3 wasn’t so busy, perhaps he would have recognized the Blue Universe competitor Sindra.
Of course, Sindra couldn’t have left Blue Universe and joined an ordinary mercenary group. This mercenary group was part of the Blue Universe group, and Blue Universe was once a guild that Water Fairy had invested a lot in. Later, Water Fairy and her family had a falling out, and these clubs reorganized and started over again. Blue Universe became the biggest club held by the Shen family group.
Who was able to have Sindra mindfully serve them?
Evidently, it was only the legendary leader Shen.
Leader Shen was a level 10 newbie, and there were quite a few differences between his appearance in the game and in real life. However, he had no way to hide his marks of age.
In the end, he was still a dashing and elegant old man. Otherwise, how could he have a daughter of unrivalled beauty? Even if Water Fairy’s mother was any more beautiful, it wouldn’t have made any difference.
The reason why rich families had lots of handsome guys and beautiful girls wasn’t just because of the imagination of authors and screenwriters.
Beautiful girls would enter into their homes, and after a few generations, the genes would become more and more beautiful. It was hard to have an ugly child. Water Fairy was evidently the result of the filtering of genes from generation to generation.
If one day Lu Li and Water Fairy had a son or a daughter, would they actually be pretty, or would they be troubled by Lu Li’s ordinariness?
Unfortunately, their child was another story altogether.
Today, the protagonists were Water Fairy and Lu Li.
When leader Shen saw his daughter that he had not seen for a long while, his eyes moistened. Sindra, sitting formally next to him, didn’t know how to comfort him either.
He actually wanted to complain deep inside. Was there actually something wrong with her? Such a small matter had turned them into enemies.
The odd couple had already started fighting intensely on the stage. Those who weren’t gamers couldn’t stand all the jumping and floundering around, but the others were relishing the moment.
However, everyone could clearly see something here – Lu Li was struggling to fight.
No matter what, Water Fairy was a celebrity competitor, and her power wasn’t far off from Lu Li’s at all. If she couldn’t hold the advantage even like this, then she might as well live off her pretty face.
Mr. Fan’s heart was pounding with fear and anxiety, and he lamented along with the people around him that kids these days were too lively.
The old folks around him all nodded in agreement, but some of them talked with great excitement about their gaming exploits in their early days.
The win/loss points were revealed on stage. It turned out Water Fairy’s skills were ‘one notch better’, and she had successfully held down Lu Li.
Water Fairy didn’t feel that it was a one-sided battle either. She happily went back to change into her wedding clothes. This was her day; she could play however she wanted.
Of course, there were a lot of people she had to see and socialize with. The ones she genuinely had good times with were still those little students Remnant Dream, Hachi Chan, Lu Yin and Princely Beauty.
A lot of the time, it was just because someone was born in the right circumstances, made the right choice, and then smoothly reached the pinnacle in life that was so hard to reach for so many people.
For example, those silly little girls Hachi Chan and Remnant Dream were still ignorant of society and hadn’t experienced the difficulties of life, but they had already become shareholders of Ruling Sword. Now, each of them was worth millions and millions.
It didn’t matter what their family circumstances were like; they now had wealth that they could pass down to their descendants.
Lu Li and Water Fairy went to the tables one by one for toasts.
However, they would definitely not be able to visit them all. Today, the Black Sea Coast was hosting a massive banquet, refusing no one who came. There were certainly tens of thousands of tables, with nearly a million people watching. If they really took a toast at every table, they might die from drinking too much.
The main ones were just those inner tables. These were the Elites from the three-guild alliance, as well as outstanding players from the same roles.
No matter how everyone usually fought each other, at this time and place, everyone was a guest. Everyone brought congratulatory hearts as they came to attend the ceremony.
“Congratulations, congratulations,” 13 laughed heartily.
Lu Li had a drink with him. As the leader of a club coming to celebrate with him, you could say he gave enough face.
“Just hope you don’t get into having too much fun, haha,” Dream 13 said as he hammered Lu Li’s chest, then looked over at Water Fairy and shook his head helplessly. His brother liked this girl, but she had barely given him more than a glance this whole time.
Many people were perplexed. What sort of person was actually able to match with a girl like Water Fairy?
Water Fairy wasn’t number one on the so-called list of beauties, but her family status was the highest. She was a goddess who had more than enough to match with anyone.
As for people like Dancing Flower Beauty, all they had were good looks.
No matter what era a society was in, looks couldn’t cover up everything. Social status determined a lot of things outside one’s self.
No one would have thought that the person was Lu Li. When the rumors about the odd couple grew more and more intense, everyone was a little disapproving. If they were good at gaming, that was one thing, but in real life, they would certainly have to find someone who was in their league.
Everyone understood one thing. Although this wedding was just taking place in the game, what it meant was different to when normal people got married in the game.
No matter whether Water Fairy was alive or dead, in the game or in real life, this was her man now.
“Treat our boss well. I think you’re a good guy,” Green Flag Wine said as he stood up and downed his drink. His attitude represented the approval of everyone at Peerless City. Why did their boss have to find some rich or upper class kid in real life? Lu Li had gone from rags to riches through his own hard work.
“Don’t worry, I know how to act right. With these hundreds and thousands of people behind her, I’m scared,” Lu Li joked.
Water Fairy used lightly punched Lu Li, laughing coyly and sweetly.
From start to finish, she had more clarity than anyone. She knew what sort of choice she had made.
“I don’t know what to say either. Just, congratulations to you two, and I admire you two.”
Sorrowless was a little shaky as he stood up. Alcohol doesn’t get people drunk – people get drunk themselves. Blood Dagger quickly held him. It didn’t matter what the situation was; Blood Dagger always seemed to be at Sorrowless’ side.
A friendship of over ten years wouldn’t change because of anything.
“I understand. Thank you,” Lu Li thanked him from the bottom of his heart.
Speaking of which, he really had to thank Sorrowless. If it wasn’t for the enormous pressure of Glory Capital, Ruling Sword, Drizzle Court and Peerless City maybe wouldn’t have banded together.
And Lu Li and Water Fairy, with their own power that they controlled, couldn’t avoid the competitive relationship between them. They really might not have gotten together so soon.
After finishing the toasts at this table, Lu Li and Water Fairy, arm in arm, had to leave quickly. At this time, Water Fairy turned back and said, “Darkness already left Jiangnan City. Where she’s gone I don’t know. I guess maybe she’s gone home.”
“Hey, what’re you doing?” Lu Li glared.
“It looked like she really didn’t have the heart to,” Water Fairy said.
“But that’s out set Paladin Healer in our First Clear team. If she’s been kidnapped away, I’ll have to have you settle the bill.”
“No, it’ll be fine. You never know – you could be buying this one and getting another for free.”
As the two walked further away to the next table, Sorrowless had gone from being lifeless to wide awake. Then, he obscured himself and went offline.
In that inconspicuous corner, Mr. Shen asked Sindra somewhat anxiously, “Will they come over? How long will it take before they come here?”
How was he going to face his own daughter?
Although he could be strong and assertive and try to suppress everything, with the passing of time over these last two or three years, he gradually knew that his daughter wouldn’t take it.
His daughter wasn’t an ordinary weak girl.
She controlled the forces of nature in the game. Her fighting even made him ashamed of his business empire as not being good enough.
She had her grandfather on her mother’s side she could rely on. The influence of the Fan family had left this so-called big boss of the business world too timid to cross over that line.
Moreover, in the last few years, he already knew too many things he didn’t know originally.
His current wife, who was his former secretary, had done many bad things. The evidence was now locked up in a safe. Some things even he felt were too extreme, so extreme that he wanted to dump her.
However, she bore him a son who would definitely be a worthy successor.
“Er…leader, they won’t come over here. We’re in the outer part,” Sindra explained with great awkwardness.
Forget about them using the guise of mercenaries to attend. Even if it was Blue Universe, as long as the bridge and groom didn’t give the nod of approval, they wouldn’t have the status to sit on the inside.
Leader Shen immediately became dispirited. He waved his hand weakly, exhaustedly entering deep thought as he slumped in his chair. They didn’t know what he was thinking about either.
This day belonged to Lu Li and Water Fairy; anyone else was just in the background.
