The Most Majestic You
Chapter 25 Part 2


Qianxi took the job seriously. After they arrived at the convention, she parted ways with the others and started to stroll around the convention center. Xu Jimo didn’t expect her to be so dedicated.

He was just suggesting for her to go around the booths in case she felt bored waiting for them. He didn’t expect that…...she would be so interested?

When they got back to the base, they saw the manager Xiaorui sat cross legged on the couch with Dabing in his arms after they opened the door.  Xiaorui had a look of bliss as he stroked the cat when Tong Yao and Lu Sicheng came in one after another.

“Having a good time shopping?” Xiaorui asked, “Are you getting along with our new teammate?”

A laugh came from the support, Little Fatty, nearby.

Xu Jimo seemed to have forgotten about her. She didn’t receive a single message. From the Weibo KG team chat group, she found out that they returned home right after her. Xu Jimo gave the whole team a week long break and they had all went away.

No one remembered to talk to her……

At the very least she was their boss, why did she become nonexistent the moment they came back.

Ye Qianxi got up early the next morning. She depressedly opened the suitcase which she hadn’t had a chance to unpack. She hung her clothes in the closet, put the shoes back, and all the other stuff…...hum?

Slide squinted his eyes and spoke in a low voice, “The DVDs weren’t good, we’ve played them all already.  Let me get the games for you next time when you want to play new games.”
“Ah.  I almost forgot.”  Ai Qing tried to cover up her own emotion, but there was no place to hide her red face.  “You were in this business before.  I should’ve asked you to buy them for me.”
“Boss wants you to go to the headquarter this evening.”  Slide already turned around to pour a cup of tea for himself and drank,  “Go there and come back quickly, then we can still eat dinner together.”
She went right away since Slide said so.  She threw her spare key to them and left.
Slide followed her out unexpectedly.  He said he needed to go back to the club to pick up some stuff.

Ten minutes later, all the guests arrived.
Slide brought with him all kinds of items for treating the wound in a plastic bag.  After he came in, he found that Ai Qing was really making a big deal out of nothing. The cut on Dt’s hand wasn’t serious at all?  At most, it was a few scrapes.  He was so concerned that he was driving like crazy all the way here and thought he would find pools of blood everywhere…...
“I thought he was hurt badly.”  He dropped the bag down on the sofa and raised his thumb up,  “You’re really something else.”
Xiaomi, All, and SP’s Secret Room B team captain, Bug, followed him to come in.  They were putting their slippers on as if it was their own home.
Their manager’s home was their second base, they were very comfortable there.

Startled, Tong Yao turning around to look up at the face of the man behind her. It was against the light, she couldn’t really tell his expression, only to see him dropping the shoe bag into her basket and said, “Just tell me the rest of the things on your list. You’re not an acrobat. You were almost hanging onto the shelf.”

“You can’t blame me. This is the last pink one. Someone must have hidden it at the back so no one could find it!”

Qianxi wasn’t with them on the ambulance and arrived at the hospital sometime later.

On her way there she kept checking the online comments. There were many fans on the official Weibo asking about Cheng Yang’s condition, whether the conflict between KG and R.Y was true. There were some even outrageously suggesting that KG had rigged the game. She replied privately to each of the postings until she found out that she couldn’t really handle all of them.

She felt so helpless.

She felt like they were overwhelmed by doubt yet she couldn’t refute them all.

He must be feeling the same way.

The fans finally left leaving Tong Yao feeling like a disaster survivor. Looking at the backs of the excited fans, she stretched out her neck and sighed somewhat envious, “Will I have this many fans later on? Who like me, praise me, and can’t wait to take a pictures with me-- --”

Lu Sicheng glanced at her and lightly said, “You will if you play seriously.”

Tong Yao: “Ah, really.”

Mhm, actually, Cheng Ge wasn’t a bad person at all. At least he knew how to encourage the new-- --

Qianxi rushed back to KeyArena as fast as she could. KG and R.Y had already left the stage. By the time she got there, another match between two other teams had already begun. As she passed through the audience, she could hear their discussion of the previous match.

“Could it be that Wind was under too much pressure from all the comments online that he made so many mistakes today? They could make a highlight video of all the mistakes he had made today.” “Didn’t they call him a genius? He hasn’t made so many mistakes ever since he started playing professionally?” “He’s probably plagued by a guilty conscience.”

The forums online were also exploded with comments. Almost all KG fans seemed to be saying, “Thanks Wind for being generous.”

What was going on……

She had prepared a long speech originally.
But Ai Qing felt very hypocritical as she was about to speak.  She gave a deep sigh and released his hand.  She decided to be straight forward but he started to speak unexpectedly, “It’s alright.”
Uhm?
She looked up and saw the uncertainty in his eyes.  She recognized that he had thought too much again. The reason why she was debating how to express her feeling properly was exactly because she was afraid that he would think too much and break another tea cup, now……
He stopped himself from speaking again and used his actions to speak instead.  He stood up from sofa and walked towards the door.
“Wu Bai.”
Such a tall man stopped from just hearing her speak his name.
Dt was silent for a long while before he turned around to look at the girl standing in the living room.  “I don’t necessarily need to know the answer today.  Take your time.”

“I’m sorry……”  Seeing all the fragments in his hand, he quickly stood up to look for a trash can in the kitchen
Flabbergasted, Ai Qing pulled his hand back to the wooden table, “Drop them on the table.  Let me look at your hand.” She hurriedly wiped away the broken ceramic pieces from his hand.  She got a little dizzy from seeing the blood.
What was going on here.
She pushed him back down onto the sofa. Then she searched for some alcohol and gauze, but was only able to find some bandages. The cut needed to be disinfected. She picked up the phone and dialed.  “Uhm. Right, it’s me.  There’s no rush.  But go to the drug store near my home to buy some alcohol and gauze when you come over.  It’s Wu Bai, he…...I broke a tea cup and he got a cut on his hand when he was picking up the broken pieces.”

Lu Sicheng didn’t continue with his sentence but quietly stared at the girl next to the panel, who looked at him doubtfully. After a long while, he suddenly changed the subject, “Nevermind, it’s nothing. I heard from Xiaorui that you were there when we were playing the Spring finals a couple days ago.”


“That’s right.”


“You stayed in the same hotel as us.”


“Yeah.”


“On the 46th floor?”


“Yeah……”

“Sometimes, one has to face reality. The more you try to get away from it, it will follow you more closely. One day, it’ll become something you can’t avoid anymore and by that time, it may be hard to deal with.” He pointed to one of the paintings, “Just like this painting, the road is a circle and people will always come back to the place they started no matter how hard he has tried to run away. By that time, the problem won’t be as simple as in the beginning.”

The title of the painting on the wall was in French, ‘Returning.’

She didn’t know much about paintings but she understood what he meant.

Tong Yao had to jog after Lu Sicheng into the garage and watched him walk towards the royal blue Maserati in the corner. Then he opened the driver side door.

Tong Yao: “......”

She just needed to buy a pair of slippers, a few pairs of underwear, and one bath towel.

The car backed out from the parking space and parked in front of Tong Yao. She reached out to open the back door without thinking. The front driver’s side window rolled down, revealing Lu Sicheng’s stone face, “Sit in the front. Why are you sitting in the back, treating me like I’m your chauffeur?”

Two days later, the official competition began. There was a grand opening ceremony held in the KeyArena.

The sixteen qualifying teams arrived one after another and entered the arena walking on the red carpet. Li Cang rested his arm on Cheng Yang’s shoulder throughout the whole time. He whispered in Cheng Yang’s ear, “If we win, then we are winning with one hand tied behind our backs. We can boast about it for a whole year.”

Cheng Yang wasn’t amused. The cameras outside the red carpet had noticed the bandage on his hand. All the cameras focused on his hand, exploding into flashes.

Ai Qing was amused by it all.
After witnessing it numerous times, she was already used to seeing people challenge Dt to a game, but she never expected that someone would ask him to play in a computer store.  She was nonetheless excited by the prospect.  What was it like?
It was like something from wuxia novels, where a strong man was challenged by a stranger.
She pulled his sleeve and standing on her tiptoes to get close to his ear and whispered, “Hurry.  I’ll buy you candy if you win.”
……
Dt felt her breath subtly brush behind his ear, then he picked up the controller quietly without knowing why.
Then, the man who just won the grand championship of an offline StarCraft game stood in a narrow aisle in a computer store playing three matches against a hefty fellow.  He held the controller keenly aware of the girl next to him.  She smiled with one hand placed on the glass counter and the other hand supporting her cheek watching the TV.
As for his opponent:
His was headshotted in a swimming pool before seeing anyone……
He was already lying dead underneath the parasol before he saw anybody……
He became a corpse at the entrance of the gate before he saw anybody……
The guy put down the controller and scratched his hair.  “You’re pretty good.”
The man being praised didn’t seem to hear.

Rain poured outside the store.
Everyone who entered created a new puddles that the waitress had to repeatedly wipe dry.

Ai Qing supported her chin with one hand and used the other to fiddle the jewelry box in front of her.
It contained a very expensive ring.  She had only seen the same style and size of ring in the news when some celebrity proposed with it.
She had majored in jewelry appraisal in university.
Though she had forgotten more than half of what she had learned from university, she still couldn’t help taking it out to stare at it in appreciation last night.

Shortly after the plane landed last night, Grunt suddenly announced on Weibo that he was quitting StarCraft and be fully dedicated to Secret Room Storm. The announcement made a splash in the gaming world.  This was another professional StarCraft player with a long list of achievement who had bid farewell to it without any warning.  Everybody was surprised.
Even Solo didn’t expect Grunt would make this kind of decision.

Her index finger poked the jewelry box lightly.  A pair of big, long legs walked over, getting close before stopping next to her.  His sports pants and shoes were all wet.  It seemed that it was raining even heavier now.
Ai Qing pushed the jewelry box forward.  “Return this to Grunt for my sister.  She doesn’t want it.”
The person who had the focus of attention in the esports circle picked up the box.  He put the box inside his pants pocket without asking any extra questions.  “Ok.”
“Is that it?  No questions?”  Ai Qing laughed.  She supported her face with both hands and watched him sit down.  “Aren’t you good friends with Grunt?  Shouldn’t you pay some attention to his love affairs? At least pry a little and get some information for him.”
Dt was quiet for a while.
“I didn’t sleep last night. I was with Grunt while he dealt with his girlfriend for the whole night.”
“Dealt with?”
He answered with an “uhm.”
This subject thus concluded……

Ai Qing didn’t really mind.  She continued to cradle her face while biting the straw in front of her to drink her smoothie.
When she almost finished drinking, Dt spoke just in time to ask her, “Do you want more?”
“No.”  Ai Qing responded, amused.  “I regret getting a smoothie. Even my hands are cold from drinking it.”  After all, it was still March and it took courage to drink a mango smoothie in this weather.
She met with Dt to return the ring on her sister’s behalf. Afterwards, she planned to go to the computer store at the fourth floor to buy a PS4.  Dt now stood behind her listening to her chat with the store owner whether she should buy a PS4 or Xbox One.  He was actually very familiar with game consoles, but he didn’t want to make the final decision for her and kept silent.  After all, it was a joy to listen to her talking.
“Anyway the Xbox is better if you want to play the motion control games and you don’t need to buy any CDs.  I will copy all the games for you but you need to buy the copyrighted CDs for the PS4.”  The owner took the CD game out and put it on table.  “300 RMB for each.  You can sell them back to me for 150 RMB each after you are tired of playing it.”
Ai Qing picked up several CDs to examine.
She liked computer games, but wasn’t knowledgeable about game consoles.
The owner continued his explanation, totally oblivious to the fact that he was speaking to a famous esports commentator.  He thought she was just an ordinary girl who had come out to buy games with her boyfriend.
“You tell me.  Which one should I buy?”  Ai Qing finally asked for help.
“They’re both about the same.”  This was the answer he gave honestly.
……
Alright, Ai Qing didn’t really expect him to give her a long explanation-- --or about why they were almost the same.  She bought a PS4 in the end and flipped through the CDs on the counter.
Finally, she was very happy to find Call of Duty, because this was the only game she played in Slide’s store.
It was a first person shooting game similar to Secret Room Storm.
Yet it wasn’t a team game, so she could only play against the computer or a duel between two people.[1]
“This one, I think it’s good for your boyfriend.”  The owner looked at the handsome guy behind her and felt that he looked familiar.  “Take a look.  I’ll open it up for you.  Here’s the code for the official copy.  Uhm. Right.  And also, let me turn on the console and teach you how to play.”
She nodded modestly in order to not hurt the owner’s feelings.

But after he powered up the console and put in the CD, she couldn’t pretend any more as the screen came alive.  She played for several minutes while trying out the controller.
Jump, move forward, jump down from the ruins of the high building, and rushed into the bus after it was struck by a rocket.
It seemed effortless for her to aim then shoot, aim then shoot.
The owner who was going to explain how classic this game was…...was now standing next to her in respect.
He had never seen a girl who played this game so well, she was at the professional level!  His level of respect grew even stronger after the girl handed the controller to the young man behind her.
The handsome guy with the baseball hat was already eye-catching by himself, now the small crowd of customers gathering to watch drew even more onlookers.
Someone began to roll up the sleeves excitedly.  “Brother.  How about we play a game?”
Dt raised his eyelids and didn’t say anything.



[1]: Call of Duty has online multiplayer (the main appeal of the game) and has team based game modes…  I don’t know why the author thinks otherwise...
