Chapter 180: [Grand League]
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
Currently speaking, all those women around Hong Dali were top-notch beauties with their own uniqueness. The gentle goddess Li Nianwei, the next door sister Tang Muxin, and he vaguely heard that the super technological geek Lin Chuyin’s relationship with him was not bad too. Now, another super lolita Lin Zixuan popped out. This caused Liang Yifeng to be filled with envy and jealousy. His only impression now was that all these years he was leaving in vain!
“Lin Zixuan?” Liu Mingxin smiled bitterly and shook his head. “This little lass was picked up by Hong Dali from the roadside when he was walking his tiger.”
“He picked her up!” Liang Yifeng felt his sense of logic being shattered all over the floor. “He manages to pick up such top-notch lolita just by casually walking on the streets!?”
“That’s why I say not to compare your luck with his.” Liu Mingxin helplessly said, “You wouldn’t end up well if you compete with him in this. All those that did ended up like you. OK, let’s not talk about this anymore. They are starting to cut the cake already. The coming of age ceremony should be ending soon.”
“OK.” Liang Yifeng was very demoralized. “Once the ceremony ends, I’m going to the streets to pick up a lolita as well…”
Therefore, the coming of age ceremony that should have been being grand and majestic casually ended.
The second day.
“Sigh, days without Xiaoyi around are really so frustrating.” Hong Dali boringly lay on his school table reading novels from his phone. “I have no idea of the progress of all the other stuff. Forget it, I shall just continue reading my novel.”
After a while of reading and giving some rewards to the author, Hong Dali took another nap. As he tossed around, in his mind he was contemplating on how to seek out that person. “Damn that Bighead, he really dares to take up any kind of job! He actually lured Ling Mufeng to eat that drug, this would put him in jail for at least a few years, wouldn’t it? When I find him, I’m going to teach him a proper lesson! I wonder how Old Yao is doing, is he working or not.”
Speaking of which, the nine lackeys all had their own use and job scope. Ling Xiaoyi had the most use—she was in charge of overseeing and arranging all those projects and orders that Hong Dali passed down. As for the three male lackeys, Li Yang ran the most errands while the other two were sturdy in build. The other five female lackeys were all quick-witted. Although they couldn’t help Hong Dali ease his workload like Ling Xiaoyi, they were efficient at dealing with all those minor labors and helped Hong Dali spare a lot of mental effort.
Now that Ling Xiaoyi was looking after her brother, Hong Dali was lacking a capable assistant at his side. Therefore, Hong Dali was having quite a headache.
After sleeping for a while, it was finally the end of school for the afternoon. In a daze, Hong Dali went out for a stroll. After just a few steps, he saw someone waving at him in the corridor. At first, he couldn’t see properly because his eyes were still a bit blurry. After Hong Dali rubbed his eyes and looked again, he was immediately amused. “Isn’t this that die-hard fan of mine?”
The one waving at him was the hooligan that hugged his leg yesterday and had “Chui Chui, I Love You” tattooed onto his elbow!
This fellow came looking for me, could it be that he has news? Hong Dali was curious and directly walked over. “Do you have any new updates from your side?”
“Young Master.” The hooligan followed his boss and called him “Young Master too,” his attitude quite polite. “Our boss came back yesterday… Yup, I’m explaining myself clearly. It was like this. Yesterday, didn’t Young Master ask us to follow Big Boss, and Big Boss also agreed. Therefore, after Big Boss came back yesterday, he told us to play games if we have nothing to do, and said that it was Young Master’s order…”
This fellow talked a lot, but he didn’t talk about the main topic. Although Hong Dali was vexed, he was helpless too. Very obviously, Yao Tianhao sent this guy to clear Hong Dali of any suspicion that he might have. After all, Hong Dali was familiar with this guy. If it were someone unfamiliar, it might be difficult for them to communicate.
“Yup, can you get to the main point?” Hong Dali kindly reminded him.
“Ah, OK. I’m a bit long-winded.” The hooligan hurriedly continued. “Simply speaking, the game was quite fun. Currently, everyone is gathered in one server, about 400 plus of us. All of us uses a family name—a sight to behold!”
“So awesome!” Hong Dali was instantly curious. “So, what family name did you guys use?”
“Our Big Boss thought very long for the prefix. Then, it seemed that he used to hang out in an online chat group in the past.” The hooligan smiled and said, “It was called something like grand league, so our family name is called [Grand League-], in this format.”
Hearing him say so, Hong Dali instantly imagined the scene.
Four hundred plus level one avatars standing together, the top of their heads showing [Grand League-XX]—this scene, it was definitely awesome!
“Awesome! Hahaha!” Hong Dali felt his heart itching. He thought for a while. Since there weren’t any plans for later, he might as well go and play too. “I shall go and play for a while too, haha. Wait for me to call some people over!” Saying so, he took out his phone and started calling. “Is this Zhiruo? Help me inform Ling Yi and the rest, we shall be going to the Internet cafe in the afternoon!”
Ji Zhiruo: “OK, Young Master Dali.”
Very soon, Tang Muxin, Ling Yi, and his other classmates arrived. Therefore, in the afternoon, this bunch of wealthy kids drove all sorts of luxury cars and went to the Internet cafe. When they stopped outside the cafe, the people inside were scared to the point of peeing in their pants. Who had ever seen people driving 30 plus luxury cars that cost at least 500,000 each to go to an Internet cafe? Many were frightened, thinking that some wealthy kids were offended by something or someone in-game and came over to beat them up. Hong Dali even saw some people crawling under the table, probably because they were afraid that blood might be spilled on them.
The boss of the Internet cafe was scared too. He wasn’t sure where Hong Dali and his group were from, so he begged for forgiveness before saying anything else. “Please, show mercy. I’m just doing a small business here…”
“Your Internet cafe doesn’t seem to be small.” Hong Dali looked at the signboard on top and then looked inside. “There should be at least 300 plus machines in here…”
The boss cried, “But if you really smash them all, I would really just be making a meager profit…”
Actually, those who were able to open Internet cafes normally had some sorts of underworld background. The problem was that Hong Dali’s entrance was too astonishing—one Soaring Angel, three Prayer Angels, and the rest all super-sports cars. It was akin to driving Rolls-Royce, Bentley, and Lamborghini to an Internet cafe in his previous life—one could imagine that scene.
Therefore, although the boss knew people from the pugilistic world, he still couldn’t handle this kind of scenario. As a matter of fact, even if Hong Dali and the rest smashed his Internet cafe, he would still not dare to say anything. They were on a totally different level, he could only blame on his own luck for the misfortune.
“Hehe, it isn’t that serious.” Hong Dali grinned and said, “We’re just here to play games.”
The boss was scared to the point of peeing again, thinking that Hong Dali’s “play games” referred to the game of smashing computers. “This Young Master, I beg of you, please be gentle later…”
“We’re really here to play games…” Hong Dali felt helpless. “Stop talking rubbish and open up 40 machines for us.”
“O… OK!” Upon hearing Hong Dali asking him to open up machines for him, the boss instantly got invigorated, and his waist didn’t ache and his legs didn’t hurt anymore. “My shop’s second-floor lounge has the best machines available, please use them as much as you wish. All expenses are free today!”
“Not bad, not bad. Reward, 1,000!” Hong Dali was delighted. “This service attitude is very good!”
Then, the male lackey started counting the money.
The Internet cafe boss: “…”
Everyone happily went up, turned on the machines, and very quickly, the [Grand League] family had 30 plus new members. Hong Dali’s nickname was [Grand League-Young Master], Tang Muxin’s nickname was simply [Grand League-Muxin], and the others all picked nicknames they liked too. As a result, once they left the beginner’s village, they were instantly amused—all around them were people from the [Grand League] family, at least 500 to 600 of them…
Oh my, this is exactly the feeling that I wanted. Hong Dali was quite pleased.
Speaking of which, in his previous life, when Hong Dali read novels about online gaming, there were common plots such as a new game where a lot of people were playing, how the equipment was very valuable and limited, how those families were awesome and how they had a lot of members and such.
He wasn’t concerned with the things mentioned in front, but this [Grand League] really did seem to have that kind of style now!
When they just stood still, a few people instantly secretively ran over. One of them private messaged Hong Dali:
[Grand League-Liaison Officer]: “I’m the Liaison Officer of Grand League. Brother, which division are you from?”
[Grand League-Young Master]: “Look at my nickname.”
[Grand League-Liaison Officer]: “You are the Young Master? Are you for real?”
[Grand League-Young Master]: “I’m the legit Young Master.”
By this time, this liaison officer most likely had checked with the hooligan who tattooed “Chui Chui, I Love You” on his elbow. He decisively shouted, “The Young Lord is here. Brothers, come and welcome him!”
Once he shouted this, the people around immediately erupted. Numerous people stopped whatever they were doing and rushed over. At first, it was only those from the beginner’s village. Then, the warp gate started to flash continuously as people warped over. Two minutes later, there were about 700 to 800 people around them. Five minutes later, the whole beginner’s village was flooded with people. Everywhere was filled with heads when one looked around.
When everyone arrived, a balded and sturdy looking male avatar who had the highest level came forth. His nickname was [Grand League-Tianhao]. He loudly shouted, “Greetings, Young Master! Brothers, start with the horns!”
There was actually a server horn service in this game. Therefore, the whole server was filled with:
[Grand League-Member One]: “Warmest welcome to Young Master for showing his presence on this server. May the Young Master reign for 10,000 years and conquer the game!”
[Grand League-Member Two]: “Welcome, Young Master. Young Master is skilled in both literacy and martial arts, and will bless all of us!”
[Grand League-Member Three]: “Warmest welcome to [Grand League]’s Big Boss, Young Master. May you defeat all that stand in your way!”
Speaking of the online games in this world, there were definitely other family organizations such as this. But the problem was that this was definitely the first one that had such discipline and order. Other things aside, just this grand entrance was already astonishing enough. With Hong Dali’s style of spending money, just this short while, they already spent 3,000 plus yuan on horns that cost one yuan per horn.
Of course, this was nothing to Brother Dali. It wasn’t worth mentioning, wasn’t worth mentioning at all!
