Qin Lu leisurely spoke up, “We have a special connection.”
Shen Junqing raised an eyebrow skeptically and asked, “Do you really like her?”
Qin Lu replied calmly, “Young Master Shen, this seems to have nothing to do with you.”
His first sentence was a warning to Shen Junqing, telling him not to have any ideas about the little girl.
He didn’t need to answer personal questions.
Shen Junqing chuckled, stood up by leaning on the armrest, and said, “Let’s go, let’s see if the little sister is having a good time or not.”
On the upper floor.
Nan Yan’s patience was on the verge of running out.
She didn’t have that much time to waste.
She would rather go back to the hotel and sleep if she had the time.
The young girl leaned casually against a load-bearing stone pillar in the lobby, playing games on her phone while being entertained by Wu Yue.
“Miss Nan, help me, help me, come save me!”
Wu Yue shouted anxiously, vigorously pressing the buttons on his phone.
Nan Yan felt annoyed and disgusted, her eyebrows furrowed with impatience. She controlled the character in the game to rescue Wu Yue.
“Can you be any more useless…”
A soul-deep complaint.
“Miss Nan, it’s not that I’m useless, the opponent is just too powerful!” Wu Yue vowed, “I’m sure the opponent is definitely a professional gamer!”
He wasn’t really that bad. He was actually quite skilled at playing games.
Originally, he wanted to impress Nan Yan, but who knew that when they matched opponents, they ended up with a professional gamer.
“Hide behind me.”
Nan Yan instructed and controlled her character in the game to launch a fierce counterattack.
Wu Yue recognized Nan Yan’s skills and felt at ease hiding behind her, watching her dominate the opponent.
A “KO” sounded in the game, an instant victory!
This feeling was truly exhilarating!
Wu Yue looked at Nan Yan with starry eyes, “Miss Nan, let’s become friends and play games together in the future!”
“I refuse.” Nan Yan swiftly exited the game and put away her phone.
“Why?” Wu Yue lamented, feeling a bit heartbroken.
“It’s a waste of time.”
She didn’t enjoy playing games.
She would rather do something meaningful with that time.
If she hadn’t been stuck here by Qin Lu today and had nothing to do, she wouldn’t have bothered playing with Wu Yue to pass the time.
“Alright…” Wu Yue blinked, “Miss Nan, how about we play another round?”
Let him experience once again the feeling of being carried to an easy victory!
“Your Young Master is here,” Nan Yan reminded him in a casual tone.
Wu Yue’s face changed, hastily putting away his phone and standing obediently.
Qin Lu came out of the elevator and walked straight toward the two of them.
The little girl’s face was full of impatience, clearly annoyed from waiting.
Without even realizing it, he placed his hand on top of her head and gently rubbed it, saying, “Let’s go.”
Nan Yan frowned, turned her head, and shook his hand off, “Brother, what’s wrong with you? Why are you touching me?”
“You don’t like it?”
Qin Lu calmly raised his hand again and placed it on her head, rubbing it several times.
He messed up her soft hair in the process.
Nan Yan was speechless.
Under Nan Yan’s speechless and helpless gaze, Qin Lu realized his childish behavior, nonchalantly smoothed her hair, and withdrew his hand.
Covering up the embarrassment with a light cough, he said, “I’ll take you home.”
Shen Junqing stumbled to Nan Yan’s side, bending down with a pair of beautiful peach blossom eyes, and handed his phone to her, saying, “Little sister, add me as a friend~”
Nan Yan looked at him.
Shen Junqing curved his lips.
To be honest, Shen Junqing belonged to the enchanting category of men.
He was beautiful and charming, with a pair of captivating peach blossom eyes, and his facial features were considered perfect.
However, he didn’t have the slightest hint of femininity, not a bit effeminate.
Nan Yan also had a pair of peach blossom eyes, but they were completely different from his.
His eyes were slightly seductive, bewitching and captivating.
Nan Yan’s peach blossom eyes were misty and hazy, clear and translucent, giving off a sense of ethereal beauty.
Well, Nan Yan was a little captivated by his gaze and obediently took out her phone, adding him as a friend.
Shen Junqing’s smile deepened as he tapped a few times on the screen and sent a message.
“Sister, let’s stay in touch~” Shen Junqing patted Nan Yan on the head and said, “Brother has some matters to attend to, so I’ll leave first.”
Nan Yan was speechless.
One after another, they all took advantage of her and even liked to ruffle her hair. Were they trying to rub her bald?
Sitting in Qin Lu’s car, Nan Yan was already feeling a bit sleepy. Letting out a yawn and rubbing her eyes, she suddenly found a phone in front of her.
Following the arm that held the phone, Nan Yan saw Qin Lu’s cool and noble face and asked, “?”.
“Add me as a friend,” Qin Lu said.
Under the pressure emanating from him, Nan Yan obediently added him as a friend.
“If you’re sleepy, go ahead and sleep. I will wake you up when we arrive,” Qin Lu said calmly.
Nan Yan stared at him straight in the eye for a while and slowly asked, “Are you all in need of a little sister?”
Qin Lu placed his large hand on her head, turning her face to the side, and with a flat tone, he said, “Little girl, don’t look at men like that.”
Nan Yan patted his hand, giving up on talking to him.
Nan Yan had no idea that the game she played with Wu Yue had gone viral online. The reason was that her opponent in that game was An Xiran.
At that time, An Xiran was live streaming the game. There were over three million viewers in his live stream, witnessing how a professional eSports player like him was beaten by an amateur.
An Xiran didn’t show much emotional fluctuation after his defeat. Instead, he was somewhat excited and wanted to recruit the person into his team.
In the eSports circle, there were only a few who possessed such impressive skills. Suddenly, a newcomer with such strong abilities emerged, naturally becoming a sought-after target.
After the game ended, An Xiran sent a friend request to his opponent. However, there was no response to the request.
After some thought, he sent a private message.
In the live stream chat, many people were asking An Xiran why he lost to a newcomer. Moreover, there were trolls from the opposing side deliberately asking sharp questions, questioning his skills.
The staff members were going crazy, trying to delete the comments in the live chat, but there were too many trolls, and they couldn’t delete them all.
On the contrary, these actions made An Xiran feel even more guilty.
An Xiran stopped the staff members’ actions, put on his headset, and calmly spoke, “Many fans in the barrage are asking why I, a professional eSports player, lost to a newcomer.”
“Actually, this is normal.”
“Professional players may invest more time and have more fluent and precise operations compared to regular players, but professional players are not gods. They are not invincible.”
“In the previous match, I lost to a player named ‘RandomName’. That is a fact, and I don’t want to make excuses. I lost, and that’s it.”
“This shows that there are always people better than us. I will train harder to improve my skills and hope for a chance to compete with them again.”
An Xiran’s speech didn’t find excuses for his failure; he faced it calmly. Although it was difficult for fans who always thought he was invincible to accept, it established his image.
At least, he had won the favor of many neutral viewers.
At the same time, a piece of news about searching for the player “RandomName” appeared on the hot search list…
