ThornyRose confirmed the value of the three in this season. A troop leader! A war machine! A battlefield destructor! Once the battle of the nations began, they will lead China to conquer the world, especially during the troop battle! In her mind, she saw a scene of China standing on the top of the mountain, waving the flag of Thorns and Roses in the rain of blossoms. 

*Boom!* Seeing Anza about to take his flight, Lin Le took out the handcart and aimed at it. *Boom!*

It was a failed shot. 

Despite the incredible effect, LordAsked was shocked and triggered at the same time. Son of a b*tch! You son of a b*tch! It is not necessary. Just let a few people die and we’ll pass the level! Staring at the golden explosion, he shouted inside, “Hey, that’s my money!”

“Hunting Beast - the Bird of Wind - Anza is defeated! All players in Thousand Peak Mountain and Goddess City get the blessing effect! Movement speed +20%, dexterity +30%, experience +50% and wind elemental skills’ effects +30%! Lasts for 7 days!”

Suddenly, LordAsked felt something like an electric current flashing past his shoulders. He turned around to see Ye Cang was nowhere to be found. “No…That idiot wants to touch the dead bird!”

CloudDragon was the first to react. He dashed at Ye Cang and gave him a devastating kick. However, upon landing onto the ground, Ye Cang entered into spirit status and charged himself. With Shadow Step, Ye Cang blinked at Lin Le, kicked away his hands and inserted his hand into the ash of the soul of the boss. 

ThornyRose, CloudDragon, and LordAsked who dropped their jaws were disappointed as they know there was no turning back. The system showed that Ye Cang had touched the corpse. 

“Two five-star shots…Two five-star shots…” LordAsked mumbled these phrases repeatedly as if he was deeply focused in prayer. 

Silence filled the air for the next moment.  The happiness of defeating the boss just made way for intense disappointment. Most of them were stunned with their smiles still on their faces, not able to fathom their reaction in time

“Who says I can’t get anything?! Look! What’s this! The godly crystal!” Ye Cang raised the item high and shouted, sharing its attributes with everyone. 

The Bird of Wind - Anza’s Spiritual Orb: The soul crystal of the Bird of Wind - Anza. 

With ThornyRose’s signal, Lin Le examined the corpse. He shook his head and shrugged his shoulders. “...but there’s nothing at all.”

“Let’s go. Let’s go. I’m not going to share the cost of the cannon shots. ThornyRose, it isn’t me being not trustworthy but if it was you, you wouldn’t have paid too. Besides, not claiming the human resource fees from you guys is already the best we can do.” LordAsked turned around and patted ThornyRose’s shoulders. When he left, he glanced at Ye Cang for one last time and sighed deeply. “It’s just a month’s time and we totally forgot about defending it.” he sighed.

Looking up at the sky, CloudDragon quietly left along with his team. “Same here...not going to pay.”

With apologies from the bottom of her heart, ThornyRose nodded and stared at Ye Cang raising the soul orb high.

Outside of the arena, players were celebrating their share of blessings but were also confused with the dissatisfaction of those walking out  Why do they look as if they’ve lost their families? They didn’t even look that bad when they were completely wiped out. 

“Brothers, you’ve just finished defeating the boss but you look extremely gloomy?”

“Don’t even bother asking me that. I don’t have any comments. I just want to figure out my purpose in this world. Originally, I thought my points are going to be put into good use but who knows...Life is just so unpredictable. Where does mankind come from? And where do they need to go at the end of the day?”


SpyingBlade was sitting cross-legged on the ground quietly, staring at the souvenir brought back by Lin Le. Luckily I still have these. Meanwhile, NalanPureSoul crossed his arms with regret and glanced at the accessory Ye Cang gave him but suddenly, the thought of the cost of two cannon shots ached his heart once again. Ouch. Even though Lin Le has the refund talent, the cost is still a great one. He then quickly left the arena. On the other hand, Zhang Zhengxiong swiftly retreated from Ye Cang as he felt something was going awry. Lin Le followed by rolling aside. I sense some killing energy!

“Actually, the item in my hands is a divine artifact! But you guys have to know, getting a divine artifact will mean that you wouldn’t get other things. This is the rule! Every essence is accumulated in this. Don’t get so upset just because you didn’t get any ordinary…”

“Ah! My face!”

Ye Cang’s scream was so loud that it could be heard from outside of the arena. LordAsked then looked at CloudDragon. “Why is he such a stubborn prick?”

Without turning back, CloudDragon stopped and replied, “Great players have their own fetish. You can have yours once you are entitled as an emperor.” He finished and left. 

“It’s just a matter of time.” LordAsked turned around and glanced at the arena. Hero spirit skill, huh?

“Brother.” Ji Xiao’s voice came out of nowhere. LordAsked immediately clenched his fists, preparing to hit him. 

“You’ll become one someday. Be confident.”

LordAsked was stunned for a second and turned around to see Ji Xiao’s determined look. This little fella…

Lin Hai. The small house by the beach.

“The day after tomorrow will be  Chinese New Year’s Eve. Time sure flies so fast.” Ye Cang said as he was flipping through the calendar. 

“Oh yeah, have you thought of the performance for the Gala?” Wu Na was playing the guitar sadly. “Sadness from yesterday’s, it’s still here -- I’ve got myself a little chicken (one of the pieces in mahjong)-- I see no pieces on the table, so I gave it out -- Who could understand the eagerness of the three opponents to get a winning hand--”

“They repeatedly urged me  but I didn’t see it. I should be able to make it if I start thinking about it.” Ye Cang was sitting on the rocking chair. “A’Xiong, Lele, Little Tian, Lil’Zhao, Tongtong, Lil’Fang, and Lil’Dino, do you guys have any suggestions on what we can do?” 

“Brother, I think we can have all the beautiful girls to dance with me on the stage! I want those who can get themselves wet!” After hearing Zhang Zhengxiong’s words and seeing the smirk on his face, everyone was speechless, especially FrozenCloud. 

“Brother Lil’White, I think we can dance Agogo Little Bear dance. I’m good at it!” Lin Le was starting to shake his body to the moves.

“You guys have fun. I’m busy that day.” SpyignBlade shrugged his shoulders.

“Traitor! How betraying !” Zhang Zhengxiong shouted at him.

“......” Facing his accusation, SpyingBlade rolled his eyes. 

Ye Cang then quietly texted a message.

“Alright, Gongsun Qian will be here with us on that day.” Ye Cang’s words shocked SpyingBlade and made his voice burst out. “What was that?!”

“Nothing much, I just said that you’re going to develop your secret relationship on CNY eve, wanting to go to Dust Street to get your d*ck unleashed.” Ye Cang shrugged his shoulders. “Alright, any other suggestions?”

“Brother White! Can we invite Naked Emperor to come over and bless everyone?” Fang Tong held her palms and fingertips together. Meanwhile, Fang Ci facepalmed as if he wanted to die. His sister had become a loyal fan of Flasher Uncle and even joined his religion. 

“Little Tian and Lil’Dino, any ideas from the two of you?” Ye Cang then looked at the sisters of handcart merchandise. 

“Father, I’ve investigated the type of everyone’s favorite shows and the meaning of CNY Eve and came to the conclusion that a small production or a short drama will be the most suitable. The second best option will be a musical show. It’s best to showcase some deep meaning and some elements of Chinese New Year… but I’m not as intelligent as father so I can’t suggest anything for the plot. Of course, this is father’s decision.” Little Ye Tian gave her say after reading a book about the study of kiss-ass.

Ye Cang nodded in satisfaction and acceptance while Little Ye Tian took a glance at Lin Le. 

“Team leader, you’re smart and knowledgeable. It’s just something small for you. I’ll not suggest anything stupid then.” FrozenCloud said. 

“Aww… don’t praise me like that. We know you’re a little stupid and ugly but you’re still hardworking. Give yourself some confidence.” Ye Cang patted FrozenCloud’s shoulders and gave him a joker’s smile.

FrozenCloud was pissed. Isn’t there a normal person in this house?! She then looked at Wu Na. We’re still good sisters when we aren’t playing mahjong.
