[Announcement] Congratulations, player [Hua Meng Meng's July], for clearing Shen Jue Palace dungeon. Your name will be forever remembered for future generations to look up to.
[Announcement] Level 80 dungeon, Shen Jue Palace is officially unlocked. Happy playing, everyone!
Two announcements popped out at the same time.
Those who were arguing on the world channel were stupefied.
Didn't she go into the dungeon a while ago?
And she cleared that dungeon just like that?
Let alone those players, even The Great July was stupefied. All she did was go to Shen Jue Palace. Before she could do anything, she was transferred out of that dungeon, and the announcement popped out in the world channel.
The Great July thought that it was like a fantasy.
She was just trying to... mess around.
She did not expect that she could really enter the dungeon and obtain the title.
Oh! My! Gosh!
This NPC is epic!
The world channel was boiled over. Many regretted not being the first to change their username. Even if Moon Shadow Scepter was not in Shen Jue Palace, there should be other equipment in the palace.
[World] Hua Meng Meng's July, "he he, all I got is the first clear title of 'The Brave and Invincible'."
[World] Ancestor, Stop Fooling Around, "…"
[World] Your Daddy is Online, "The Cruel Spinster is so stingy, how can you hog all the equipment?"
[World] Hua Meng Meng, "I let you clear my dungeon all by myself, and you still want my equipment?"
[World] Hua Meng Meng's July, "but I'm your fangirl! Shouldn't you do something to appreciate me?"
[World] Hua Meng Meng, "soon my fangirls will be all over the world. It won't be anything less just because of you."
[World] Looking at Retards, "puff!"
[World] Hua Meng Meng's July, "I can't believe you have forsaken me after dallied with me."
[World] Hua Meng Meng, "you only use that phase when a man refused to pay a woman after sleeping with her. I didn't sleep with you, so you can't use that phase."
I'm not that kind of person, alright!
I'm that kind of person who will rob you after sleeping with you.
[World] Central Air Conditioner, "I can't even, The Cruel Spinster is too funny. She can even let you clear her dungeon through the back door. The developers from the company will be so mad."
[World] NPC1, "Hua Meng Meng, let's talk."
The developers from the company could not enter Shen Jue Palace. They could only go to the world channel when they saw Hua Meng Meng was on it.
However, the moment they went up, a commotion was stirred up in the whole community.
Someone from the company is here.
And they want to talk to an NPC?
What does it mean?
Aren't these part of the settings?
[World] Hua Meng Meng, "what makes you think I should talk to you just because you say so? You think we're dating, is it? No thanks, not in the mood right now."
All players were stupefied collectively.
The Cruel Spinster was too epic. She even dared to roast the company's staff.
However, that was when everyone realized.
This NPC was indeed different from the others, not due to her settings, but she was not the same as the others.
Staff from the company were in fumes, but they could also conclude that she indeed had free will.
[Private] Moon Filled West Tower, "she doesn't seem to be concerned about her body."
Moon Filled West Tower watching the chaos on the world channel and sent a message at the private channel.
[Private] A Ray of Sunshine, "I can't understand her either."
What she was doing was provoking the company and Liang Bing. Although Liang Bing did not know that she was the first experimental subject, it did not mean that he would not know later on.
[Private] Moon Filled West Tower, "let's up level."
Liang Bing called an emergency meeting in the company.
"Chairman Liang, we had only seen this in the concept that it evolved into a free-willed organism. However, this didn't match with the current technology. I'll stand strong on my opinion that someone is behind this." a mildly overweight man with receding hairline said with his spits all over the place.
"Our department had made sure that there were no traces that someone broke into our system. We had cross-checked it multiple times." someone refuted immediately, "who knows when artificial intelligence will be born? Maybe it was born among us?"
"This is impossible. This anomaly has already happened multiple times, but why didn't your department notice this?"
"What do you mean? Are you trying to say that my department is irresponsible?"
"Isn't that the truth?"
"Enough!" Liang Bing chided with a moderate tone. Those two arguing with rage stopped immediately. They turned and looked at Liang Bing with a hint of fear.
Meng Jie sitting at the left-hand side of Liang Bing with his brows furrowed; he looked sullen. No one knew what he was thinking.
It was useless for these staff to argue. Hence, Liang Bing waved his hand to order them to leave.
Only Liang Bing and Meng Jie were left in the conference room.
"Do you have any idea?" Liang Bing looked at Meng Jie.
Meng Jie massaged his glabella, letting his brows loose. He opened his mouth, "Le Jin..."
"What's up with Le Jin?"
Moon Filled West Tower spent his fortune to buy Experience Pellets and was quick to reach level 30.
A Ray Of Sunshine brought him in front of Shen Jue Palace dungeon. There were many players crowded at the dungeon. The messages in the nearby channel were refreshing every second.
[Private] A Ray of Sunshine, "Hua Meng Meng, I bring my brother to see you."
[Private] Hua Meng Meng, "make a request."
A Ray Of Sunshine squeezed through the crowd and requested to join the dungeon.
Other players could not enter the dungeon while he could choose to enter the dungeon or not.
Shi Sheng sat on the throne in the palace as if she was the bandit queen that conquer someone's kingdom.
[Side Task: Grim Reaper’s plan]
Shi Sheng furrowed her brows, Another side task, what about Feng Ci?
What on earth is Grim Reaper's plan?
Are they mental?!
[Reveal Grim Reaper’s true colors.]
Shi Sheng,"..." No way, I'm declining this task.
Missions that involve saving the world should be entrusted to the great female lead.
She was merely a supporting character. She only wanted to mind her own business and show off.
[...] This is so exhausting.
#The host always did not complete her mission the right way, just teach her a lesson.#
[This task is accepted by default, unable to decline.] The system went offline immediately after responding.
I don't want to talk to the host at all. I miss my host.
As Shi Sheng was communicating with the system, A Ray Of Sunshine arrived at Shen Jue Palace with Moon Filled West Tower.
Moon Filled West Tower glanced at the woman sitting on the throne, observed that there were no emotions in her eyes, it was as if he was looking at an NPC.
"Hua Meng Meng." A Ray Of Sunshine waved at Shi Sheng.
"What are you trying to talk to me about?" Shi Sheng smiled with the corner of her lips. Without a single movement, she sat on the throne comfortably, as arrogant as a queen, where all living things would bow before her like a speckle of sand that could not withstand a blow.
Moon Filled West Tower made eye contact with Shi Sheng.
He looked away first after a second, "you proclaim that you're a human? And you're stuck here, needing our help?"
Shi Sheng looked at A Ray Of Sunshine. He shrugged innocently.
He could not steal a body by himself. He needed his brother's help.
"Why should I believe that you're a human?" Her expression was too calm, as calm as the robots in his house, icy cold, without emotions, that only executed as commanded.
"Why does it matter that you believe I'm a human or not with the fact that he promised to help me?"
I've already done my part, and you're trying to renege on the promise, is it?!
"You could be a hypothetical weapon. The ratio of risk we have to bear is unproportional," Moon Filled West Tower answered calmly, "if you can't provide an adequate reason for me to believe you. Then, I'm sorry, I can't help you."
