Chapter 266 – What Happened Between Them (6)
What had happened the night before was still vivid in her mind.
Qiao Lian bit her lip.
After that showdown, it now felt awkward.
But this issue would soon be resolved.
By the time she was out of the shower, Shen Liangchuan was asleep on the sofa with a blanket draped over himself.
She took a few careful steps.
The sofa in the room was not a very large one.
As he was a tall man, he barely fit the length of the sofa.
She glanced at the bed and then back at him. Without a word, she climbed onto the bed and fell asleep.
Qiao Lian had always been in the pink of health, hence even though the last two days had exhausted her, she easily bounced back after a night’s rest.
The weekend had arrived. After spending the morning with Qiao Yi in the villa, she took a cab to the club in the afternoon.
Since the club had been established, they had managed to garner seven members.
Besides Zombie Leader, the other six were also well-known gamers.
When she arrived at the club meeting, Qiao Lian saw that the seven of them were already sitting on the sofa in the living room and waiting. They were each focused on their own mobile phone, playing the newly-launched mobile online game by Lot.
The team comprised six men and a woman.
The six boys were nothing out of the ordinary, but the girl was exceedingly scrawny. One could tell that her features were quite attractive, but it was marred by her gauntness. Her online name, ‘Ninth Queen’, didn’t quite suit her.
Qiao Lian smiled as she approached them to introduce herself, “How do you do? I’m Forget Chuan, and also your trainer from now on.”
When they heard this, the seven members looked up and glanced at her.
Among them, a fair and slightly pudgy one smiled and then replied, “How are you, Forget Chuan? I’m Smiling Tiger.”
Two others then introduced themselves, “I’m The Godfather.”
“I’m The Deputy Godfather.”
These two were brothers and had good game coordination between them. They had such amusing nicknames.
Then the fair and clean-cut one among them stood up, blushing quite a lot even before he could say anything. “I’m Ninth Queen.”
Qiao Lian was absolutely stumped.
Ninth Queen was a boy? He played as a woman!
And so that girl had to be…
As if hearing the question in Qiao Lian’s mind, the girl looked up. “I’m Ancestor White Bones.”
Finding that a little hard to process, Qiao Lian was quite speechless.
Apart from Zombie Leader, there was the last boy, who looked quite normal. His online name was Lonely Peerless.
Qiao Lian felt like she was hosting a gathering of martial arts experts when she looked at this mixed team of Lot experts.
She smiled and continued, “Great. Let’s start by discussing your character roles.”
Before she could go on, Su Penghao interrupted her, “Forget Chuan, I must say, your livestream is not too bad, you’re pretty good at analyzing gaming theory. However I’m not quite convinced of you being up to the task of training us.”
Although he had lost the game to Shen Liangchuan, he was not amenable to having Forget Chuan as their trainer.
Qiao Lian looked up. She noted that even though the rest of the team did not back Su Penghao on this remark, they had turned their attention to her, expectant.
It was obvious everyone felt that Su Penghao’s remark was valid.
Qiao Lian’s eyes glistened.
Indeed, she would have to demonstrate her skills to these gaming experts, otherwise she wouldn’t be able to tame them.
She looked at Su Penghao and asked, “So what do you want?”
Su Penghao laughed. “I was in the basketball team in college. The first day of training, our coach played against us and gained his credit that way. So, are you up to showing us what you’re made of?”
He wanted to regain his ego after having been so thoroughly defeated by Shen Liangchuan the day before!
