She moved the mouse over one of the rings and a line of text popped out. “We fell in love on a midsummer’s day. When your hair reaches your waist, will you marry me?”
The ring had the most cliche name: Perpetual Love.
One could buy it from the auction house in the game at a price of around 10,000 coins, which was equivalent to about a few dozen RMB in the real world.
However, this ring had been the fad back then, and was notorious for its unbelievably low occurrence rate. If one wanted to obtain it by clearing dungeons, the probability was about one in ten thousand…
The bag which belonged to Sheng Yize’s avatar was filled with this type of ring; there were at least over a hundred of them.
An Xiaxia directed the avatar, which was an assassin, to its warehouse. What she found there shocked her even more.
It was filled to the brim with rings!
The number of rings was shocking.
“Are you nuts? Where did you get all these Perpetual Love?” An Xiaxia was dumbfounded.
Sheng Yize darted the screen a look and replied casually, “I got some from the dungeons myself and bought the rest.”
He bought them?
Back then, the ring sold for a couple thousand yuan each, didn’t it?
“You really are as stupid as you’re rich…” An Xiaxia was baffled.
Compared with Qi Yanxi and Fang Shanshan, who spent their money on equipment in the game, Sheng Yize, who had bought a bunch of rings with no additional attributes, was the real spendthrift!
Sheng Yize frowned and thought for a moment. “Didn’t you want it back then?”
“Did I?” An Xiaxia gestured at herself dumbly.
“You did.” Sheng Yize had an excellent memory. “You said you wanted to get this ring yourself and we began to clear dungeons for it. And then…”
An Xiaxia remembered now. The ring came out during the winter vacation. She had cleared a few dungeons with Sheng Yize, but the ring never showed up. She had complained about it.
After that… she moved away.
She had never seen him in the game again.
Based on the timeline, she had broken up with him when he had gotten the rings. She couldn’t imagine what he must have felt when he went to get all those rings.
An Xiaxia’s chest felt tight and she suddenly regretted logging into his account.
“Sheng Yize, I…”
“Hm?” Sheng Yize raised an eyebrow. “Sell them, if you don’t like them.”
“No!” An Xiaxia raised her voice. Seeing the quizzical look on Sheng Yize’s face, she jabbed the tips of her index fingers together. “I want to keep them…”
“Whatever you want.” He smiled mildly.
An Xiaxia played for a little while in an absentminded state, then she turned to look at the man sitting beside her. His profile was remarkably handsome and his black eyes were as deep as bottomless pools. Something seemed to click in her head and she wriggled into Sheng Yize’s arms.
“Do you think… our love will be perpetual?”
Sheng Yize put her little head on his lap, as if it was the most natural thing. He paused briefly at her question, then said affirmatively, “Of course.”
The air seemed to turn warmer and their bodies intertwined. Sheng Yize tossed his phone away, then carried An Xiaxia to the bed…
After they were done, An Xiaxia was so tired that she couldn’t keep her eyes open. She rolled into a ball under her duvet and fell asleep.
Her phone on the bedside table began to ring at that moment, so Sheng Yize picked it up for her.
Mu Li’s voice crackled on the other end. “An Xiaxia, I want to tell you that I’m sorry.”
Sheng Yize didn’t know how sincere she was and decided not to respond.
Mu Li went on talking on her own. “I’ve just had an exhausting life… All around me, I can see only darkness. When I finally saw some light and held onto it… it turned out to be nothing but an illusion…”
She went on babbling like this, then chuckled. “The whole time, I was urged on by that person…”
Sheng Yize narrowed his eyes. “Who is that person?”
