Those Sweet Times
Chapter 54 Part 1
Xiang Nuan practiced playing top for a few days and grew more and more curious about Yang Yin.
She searched online for Yang Yin and found mostly bad reviews about her. Some said Yang Yin had slept with the boss of the club to become the leading player of the team; some said she acted out of line too often because she was the only girl and her teammates had to let her have her way; some said she was rude, cursed at fans, and bad mouthed others……
There were even many pictures that came with the comments online, as if those were definite evidence. Xiang Nuan felt that if she didn’t know Yang Yin in person, like most of the audience, she would more than likely believe what had been posted online.
However, based on her contact with Yang Yin in the past few days-- --though she could be quite arrogant when playing games, and said Xiang Nuan and her teammates were noobies…...Xiang Nuan chose to believe in Yang Yin’s character.
“Yin Jiejie, why are there people bad mouthing you like that?” Xiang Nuan asked Yang Yin. She thought those people must’ve been Yin Jiejie’s enemies, otherwise why would they make up so much gossip.
Yang Yin wasn’t surprised that Xiang Nuan had seen the messy rumors; what was curious to her, however, was why Xiang Nuan concluded that everything had been lies created by someone?
“How do you know that I didn’t do the things that they said?” Yang Yin half jokingly said.
“I trust you. I know what I see.”
Yang Yin remained quiet for a while. Xiang Nuan thought Yang Yin was annoyed because she had brought up old wounds and said in a low voice: “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have mentioned it.”
“Don’t take it the wrong way. It was a long time ago and I don’t really care about it now. I just regret it happened that way.” Yang Yin spoke after a light chuckle, with a tint of frustration in her voice: “You and I have only known each other for half a month. You’re willing to totally trust me, but my boyfriend for two years couldn’t.”
“Ah? Then he now-- --”
Xiang Nuan was going to ask whether her boyfriend trusted her now but was interrupted. “He’s now my ex-boyfriend.”
Xiang Nuan was a bit saddened. Some of the gossip did mention her boyfriend. He was on the same team as her and seemed to be a tough player who had a lot of fangirls.
Yang Yin could sense Xiang Nuan’s change of emotions and turned around to comfort her: “Don’t be sad. In my world, men are far less important than games.”
Xiang Nuan was impressed by her confidence.
In addition to Laofuzi, Xiang Nuan also practiced other more popular top champions such as Cao Cao, Yang Jian, and Hua Mulan. To maximize the teams’ flexibility, she also practiced some less played top champions such as Na Zha, Liu Bang, and Guan Yu. Yang Yin asked Xiang Nuan which one champion she found was the most difficult to play. She thought Xiang Nuan would pick Hua Mulan, but she responded that Guan Yu was the most difficult one.
“Because Guan Yu has to keep running, even when he’s hiding in the bushes he has to keep turning in circles. My fingertips are almost abraded away.”
Lin Chuyan said: “Your fingertips are too tender.”
Yang Yin found Lin Chuyuan’s conclusion rather unique. It had nothing to do with whether someone’s fingertips were tender or not, it was simply because Xiang Nuan used too much force when clicking.
Fortunately, Xiang Nuan didn’t have much occasion to use Guan Yu. There was limited time for her to practice and she focused her time on Laofuzi and Cao Cao. Hua Mulan was a strong top, but because of her strength, it was rare for her to not be banned in a competition.
Aside from Diaochan, Lin Chuyan also practiced other strong mage champions such as Shiranui Mai and Zhuge Liang.
The other three teammates also expanded their champion pool. Yang Yin would randomly divided them into two groups. Xiang Nuan sometimes teamed up with Lin Chuyan, sometimes with Shen Zemu. However, Yang Yin would put herself in the same group as Xiang Nuan most of the time. She needed to teach Xiang Nuan to learn her new position and champions from scratch.
Xiang Nuan had heard Yang Yin scold Shen Zemu as “nooby.” Yang Yin didn’t have much patience when it came to playing games.
Shen Zemu, a Challenger player, was only a noob in Yang Yin’s eyes.
