The 10th level in the game “Jedi”, was extremely difficult to reach. At present, the most powerful one was only level nine, a level nine e-sports player, practiced day and night, yet failed to break through the tenth level.

With the game’s official statistics, no one could reach the tenth level.

Therefore, level ten, was regarded as a “non-existent legend” by the players. It was concluded that it was impossible to reach the tenth level.

–But now.

A level 10 player miraculously appeared in front of millions of viewers in the audience.

He said “shut up”, obviously to Du Ming.

He didn’t want to hear his teammate being bullied.

After the man’s magnetic and sexy voice disappeared, the whole room was suddenly silent. Du Ming was also the silent for a while, he glanced at the bright “ten”, his body felt cold like he had fallen into an ice cellar.

The first half, Du Ming thought that Zhu Qing’an’s teammate wasn’t good. In addition to the previous events, he was momentarily pleased, he even made sarcastic comments about the other ……

But he couldn’t imagine that the other not only had a teammate, but also a teammate that all game players, including Du Ming, could only dream of, a “level 10” god.

Within two seconds.

The comment section on the screen exploded.

[Ahhhhhhh! I see something! In my lifetime! I saw a level 10 god! I’m passing out!]

[Crazy, crazy, crazy! A tenth-ranked legendary god! He’s really here! And a male god with a good voice!]

[Qing’an should really happy! With such a teammate, the teammate will also be overbearingly protective!]

【 Ha ha ha, Du Ming was hit in the face? His teammate is very powerful. 】

[Bullying my An An’s teammate, yet he remained calm and didn’t say much!

The tenth level god ????

Zhu Qing’an froze.

His teacher, came?

Zhu Qing’an took advantage of Du Ming’s silence to clear his mind and explain a little about the incident just now: “Du Ming said I came to the competition because I couldn’t make it in the entertainment industry. I want to clarify.
I’m in the entertainment industry, I’m doing very well, I won the first place in the Starlight singing talent show the other day. I suddenly joined the competition because of the temporary arrangement of the company, as such.
I don’t know much about playing this game, but I won’t get you guys in trouble either.
Thanks to the audience, and my teammate for their support.”

Zhu Qing’an’s voice wasn’t inferior to his teammates, he spoke clearly and very softly. But the two people had distinctly two different styles, but put together, there was an inexplicable sense of CP.

[TN: CP– Couple Pairing]

–The game began.

Zhu Qing’an didn’t understand this game, he could only honestly follow his teacher.

The other players didn’t dare to do anything to Zhu Qing’an for the sake of the level 10 god, and they didn’t even dare to grab his weapon. They were afraid that his teammate would come back to kill them in a second.

But even if they were careful with the tenth level Great god and Zhu Qing’an, the tenth level Great god still didn’t leave any mercy, he was ruthless, he didn’t say much, he simply took their blood bars and supplies.

Then …… gave them to Zhu Qing’an.

Du Ming was even worse. He just got off the plane, before taking a few steps, he was unmercifully crushed by the Great god.

This wS the first time he lost so quickly and miserably at a tournament, and his complacent and sarcastic words about Zhu Qing’an were being condemned by netizens, and his entertainment company must have noticed the incident and would punish him according to the rules.

He was sure his future gaming career wouldn’t be easy.

The villain in the game, Zhu Qing’an, word a field uniform and carried a pile of equipment that everyone begged for and followed his teacher happily.

From time to time, the man would talk to Zhu Qing’an.

“Come here, I’ll give you guns and explosives/bags.”

“Follow me, I’ll protect you.”

“What do you want?”

The man’s voice was gentle and beautiful, and could give people a sense of security. It was reminiscent of a soft cotton candy, if poked with a fork, the sweet syrup would spill out.

Zhu Qing’an could only nod.

He listened to the voice, which sounded familiar … But because the voice was too vague and the other person’s words were too short, he couldn’t recognize how familiar it was.

He only thought …… his teacher, was so great and handsome.

The comment section also boiled up.

【Ahhhh! What kind of divine teammate is this! Oooh, He’s on An An side!]

[So handsome so handsome! I love the sound! I love that voice! I can’t believe he got such a teammate!]

[As expected of a level 10 super god!]

[ An An must be so happy to have such a teammate!]

The game ended unexpectedly fast, except for Zhu Qing’an’s team, none of them survived.

All of them were crushed and defeated by them.

The comments became more and more numerous, almost filling the entire screen.

In addition to some compliments, there were also many professional e-sports players who came on board and quietly asked the man – How exactly did you practice to level 10? Why did you want to participate in this competition?

Among them were many gamers who were usually very high strung.

The man didn’t answer those questions, during the entire game, he only spoke with Zhu Qing’an.

Only at the end of the game did he reluctantly say to the audience, “Thank you all for your support of Zhu Qing’an, I will always support him.”

Comment Section: “……”

Zhu Qing’an listened to the somewhat ambiguous words, and his face became hot and red. He glanced at the comments and his face got even redder, and he didn’t know where to put his hands. He picked up the communication device and sent a private message to his teacher: “Teacher, let’s leave the game. I’m a little …… embarrassed.”

The man listened to him very well and accompanied him to exit the game.

Only the screen full of screaming comments were left behind.

After exiting the game, Zhu Qing’an hid in the booth, red-faced as he sent a voice message to his teacher.

The teenager’s voice contained a long-lost excitement …… as well as admiration. Listening to it makes one’s heart feel good.

“Thank you for helping me, teacher is really good …… you can play games and sing ……”

“I don’t even know how to thank you.”

Level 10 player ah.

[Anonymous: :)]

[Anonymous: Good boy, cheer up.]

Zhu Qing An mumbled, “Thank you teacher.”

After saying goodbye to the other, Zhu Qingan exited the chat page.

He glanced at the time and found that forty-eight hours had arrived-

The game background, had already been changed.

Without hesitation, he clicked on “False Love”.

[Welcome back to False Love!
After forty-eight hours of unremitting effort by the system QVQ, the game added the following new settings:]

The system sent a long string of text boxes.
[Your interaction level with your lover – has entered the second stage!]

[Your lover has suffered a lot of injuries before he lost his memory. One of them was being transformed into various non-human forms during childhood.]

Zhu Qing’an: “……”

Transformation?

What the h*ll was this animal sci-fi setting?

[During each transformation, something bad happened, leaving your lover with a knot in his heart.]

[ What you need to do is to erase the knot left in your lover’s heart.]

Zhu Qing’an: “…………”

Zhu Qing’an had a bad feeling when he looked at the line “Randomly change into any form during childhood”.

He could guess that the childhood transformation didn’t harm Qin Hengyi’s flesh, otherwise Qin Hengyi wouldn’t have appeared in human form. But those transformations had left a knot in Qin Hengyi’s heart.

It was likely that it was also one of the reasons for Qin Hengyi’s memory loss.

What Zhu Qing’an wanted to do was to erase the knot in his heart brought by the corresponding form during Qin Hengyi’s random transformation into his transformed form, to heal him and give him a light.

But …… how did Zhu Qing’an know what form Qin Hengyi would turn into?

Vampire? A werewolf? A man with wings?

What kind of trauma did those forms bring to him? And how could he erase them?

Zhu Qing’an: “……”

Either way, it wasn’t easy to get.

He poked the screen.

[New background is loaded!]

[Due to the first time entering the new background, player need to wear a holographic helmet to more fully understand the new background!]

He remembered the last time he entered the holographic mode game.

He was almost eaten by the paper man. Moreover, the experience wasn’t good.

Zhu Qing’an scratched his head, and reluctantly, picked up the holographic helmet ……

He also didn’t know why he was so active.

Maybe because …… it had been too long since he’d played this game.

He explained to himself.

Zhu Qing’an closed the doors and windows and turned off the lights. Wearing the holographic helmet, he laid down on the bed.

[Holographic mode loading–]

Zhu Qing’an’s consciousness sank.

When he opened his eyes again, he was already in another space.

What came into view was finally no longer the hot pink room.

Instead, it was pitch-black with no light visible.

The air was a little salty, the floor was very wet and damp.

The atmosphere was very eerie.

Zhu Qing An stood up and found a flashlight beside him, a very old style from three or four hundred years ago.

“Click.”

The dim yellow light came on.

Zhu Qing’an glanced at this new background, his pupils suddenly shrunk ……

— He was in the middle of a vast night, with an endless ocean in front of him. The seawater, reflected thr black clouds, the sound of gurgling water was like the whisper of the devil, eerily appalling.

And he stood alone on this beach, as if he would be swallowed by this darkness at any moment.

The form of Qin Hengyi was obviously related to this new background.

[Your lover is in the ocean!]

Zhu Qing’an: “……”

Zhu Qing’an: ????

Brain-deprived, he couldn’t think of any form of Qin Hengyi that could be in the sea.

Zhu Qing’an walked to the beach and let the too-cold seawater cover his knees.

He turned to the seawater and whispered, “Mr. Qin?”

“Mr. Qin? Are you there?”

“I came to see you ……”

“I’m really sorry, I’ve been a bit busy lately, I didn’t mean to neglect you.”

The teenager’s careful voice, was amplified countless times by the silent sea, it echoed nearby with the waves.

No one answered.

It seemed that Qin Hengyi was really in this cold sea.

How could he find him?

Zhu Qing’an frowned.

[New Background 01: Underwater Abyss]

[When your lover was ten years old, he had been transformed into a mythical creature, a mermaid, and had also lived in these waters.]

[This form has brought him a lot of trauma and knots.
You have to find out the shadow of his heart knot, erase it for him, bring him light, so that this sea, which is always in the dark, has warm sunlight to shine in.]

Zhu Qing’an: “……” Mermaid??

It wasn’t impossible for the Empire to transform something into a mermaid – the Empire had such technology a hundred years ago.

But today, it had been banned.

It only appeared in the game.

He called out softly again, “Mr. Qin?”

[Ways to summon mermaids: please look towards reality and find the food that mermaids love to eat.]

A snap.

Zhu Qing’an was bounced back to reality.

He took off his helmet in confusion, and was a little …… angry at this crappy game.

But for the sake of the paper man.

He still honestly tried to follow the game requirements to find the food that mermaids loved to eat.

Since he was a mermaid ……

Making a seafood meal and sending it over, was nothing wrong.

He was curious about what Qin Hengyi’s mermaid form would look like. Would it be like the fairy tale that …… it loved to cry, and its tears were pearls?

Thinking about it, he was a little excited.

Before Zhu Qing’an made the seafood, he went to the forum and crwated a post.

[Fantasy post: If your lover is a male mermaid, what should you pay attention to?]

–not a moment later.

There was a reply to the post.

[Male mermaid? I guess, must be very ferocious and ruthless. Female mermaids are gentle and soft.]

[Male mermaids! I heard that mermaids always try to get offsprings! Be careful!]

[An actual mermaid will definitely have a thick and long fish tail =w=, sitting on it will be very comfortable ~~]

[According to the novel’s setting …… mermaids generally contain sickly attributes! The kind that loves to imprison / confine! With feeling!]

Zhu Qing’an: “……”

No, he raised a paper man, he definitely wasn’t such a mermaid-

He sighed lightly, put down the light computer, and prepared to go and make food for Qin Hengyi.

Because there were feline cubs in the base, some fresh seafood was always kept in the refrigerator.

He took an arm-length carp and prepared to make his best braised carp.

The fresh, fatty braised carp was repeatedly cooked in a pot, the tender skin of the fish was burned to a crisp, with a reddish colour, and the sauce drizzled on the skin made its tender white flesh a tempting, sizzling red.

Then sprinkle with garlic and scallions. The braised carp came out of the oven.

He packed the braised carp and went out to send food to the Imperial Star Food Special Delivery at the address given by the game.

What was sent to that address, whether it was animals or food, would miraculously appear in the game, exactly the same.

He wondered what technology was used.

By the way …….

Zhu Qing’an rubbed his head.

He forgot that he had sent two chicks to the game before.

He wondered how they were doing.

The paper man shouldn’t have eaten them.

The Imperial Star Express was fast and shipped the goods in a ship that was close to the speed of light.

After Zhu Qing’an returned to the base and finished preparing food for the pups. The courier already showed that it had been delivered.

His heart started beating fast, he put down the things down, returned to the room, and opened the game.

–[The ‘Fresh Big Carp’ you prepared for your lover has been delivered!]

He could now enter the game and use this carp to summon Qin Hengyi.

Zhu Qing’an was a little nervous and his cheeks were habitually flushed.

He walked around the room, clenching his sweaty hands.

Even he didn’t know what he was nervous about.

In the end, Zhu Qing’an gritted his teeth and decided to make a quick decision and enter the game!

He picked up the holographic helmet and put it on his head, allowing his consciousness to fall into darkness.

Zhu Qing’an opened his eyes, and was immediately hit by the cool, silky sea breeze.

He turned on his flashlight, reflecting the dark yellow sand in front of him.

At the same time, he also saw the braised carp he had made.

The carp, served on a porcelain white plate, sat alone on the beach, still smelling hot and fragrant. In the darkness of the night, it looked a bit lonely and pitiful.

Zhu Qing’an walked over and picked up the food.

He looked at the eerie black sea, smelled the aroma from the carp, and called softly again: “Mr. Qin, are you there? I’ve made food for you.”

“Mr. Qin?”

The time inside the game was at three in the morning, and the weather was particularly cold. Zhu Qing’an couldn’t help but shiver, and his voice trembled unintentionally, sounding a bit pitiful and aggrieved.

“Mr. Qin …… you, if you don’t come again, the fish will be cold.”

The words of the teenager just fell –

The wind suddenly became heavier.

Faced with the cold, biting sea breeze, Zhu Qing’an reactively closed his eyes.

When he opened his eyes again, he suddenly found …… the fish on the plate, gone.

Zhu Qing’an: “……”

He hadn’t yet reacted.

His body, which was shivering from the wind, was suddenly circled into a warm embrace.

He froze, turned his head, and met a pair of familiar but dark red eyes.

Zhu Qing’an opened his eyes wide and said with surprise: “Qin, Mr. Qin?”

The man hooked his lips, as usual, wrapped him around his waist, resting his chin on the other party’s shoulder and whispered softly: “An.”

Zhu Qing’an’s eyes were a little red, he subconsciously muttered: “Mr. Qin, I’ve been really busy these days. So I didn’t come to see you, sorry, don’t be angry ……”

Before he finished his sentence, his knee was suddenly held against a cold object. His weight was unstable and he fell down with a snap.

With the flashlight, he saw …… himself sitting on a long, strong, black fishtail. The delicate scales glowed darkly in the light, like jewels.

He saw such a realistic fish tail for the first time and froze.

Qin Hengyi also glimpsed the teenager’s strange reaction.

He woke up in the space he was in and he was in this shape.

But he had experienced the first two changes and he was used to it.

The only difference ……

his body, also followed the change.

Unexpectedly.

He didn’t feel any discomfort, but rather was very used to it.

It was as if he had been a mermaid before he lost his memory.

— The only thing he was currently worried about was Zhu Qing’an.

The teenager suddenly appeared here and brought him braised fish, he was very well behaved.

But …… the teenager was now sitting on his fish tail, eyes red, body shaking, biting his lower lip, not daring to say a word.

Obviously frightened by his mermaid form.

Still a little kid ……

It was also inevitable.

Qin Hengyi helplessly narrowed his eyes, pressed against the teenager’s ear, and whispered: “Don’t be afraid. I won’t hurt you.”

The man’s voice was particularly nice, and it seemed gloomy and obscure in the night.

— Zhu Qing’an wasn’t afraid, he shivered solely because he was too cold.

But he pulled out a smile: “I’m not afraid, Mr. Qin.”

The kid was really too scared. He had to squeeze out a fake smile and lie to comfort him.

Qin Hengyi thought helplessly.

Zhu Qing’an squeezed into the man’s embrace without thinking. The man’s skin was wet, but unexpectedly warm, it was like lying in a bathtub full of hot water.

Zhu Qing’an remembered the task ……

Erase the knot left in Qin Hengyi’s heart when he transformed into a mermaid during his childhood.

— Qin Hengyi …… what was the knot?

The man’s embrace was too warm, his tail was slippery and comfortable to sit on. He couldn’t help but nestle inside again.

Not the least bit aware of the man’s strange gaze.

Qin Hengyi looked at the teenager.

The teenager was obviously afraid and shivering, yet he remained in his embrace.

Was it to please him? Was he afraid of him being angry?

This little ……

He lifted his hand and couldn’t help but touch his soft hair.

Zhu Qing’an was shocked by the wet touch on his hair, the flashlight in his hand instantly tilted, it shined directly at the man’s close to three meters long black fishtail-

The scales were exquisite, like shiny black gem pieces.

But …… there were a number of even more blinding scars on it, bright red and spilling a bit of blood, which was why the scales looked shiny.

The sea breeze had calmed down, leaving only the sound of rustling waves. The afterglow of the flashlight reflected Qin Hengyi’s handsome, he noticed Zhu Qing’an looking at his tail wound, he was afraid that the teenager was frightened and said softly: “Don’t look.”

Zhu Qing’an was still staring at the tail.

Qin Hengyi’s tail had scars ……

It was likely that it was also the game’s setting.

[Ding! Player found one of the lover’s heart knots!
Scale Wounds: After Qin Hengyi was transformed into a mermaid during his childhood, for some reason, his tail left a wound that could never heal on its own. What player needs to do is to heal this wound.]
[Healing method: Your Body. Liquid.]

The first half second, Zhu Qing’an was still pitying what Qin Hengyi had gone through before. But when he saw the second half of the sentence, he suddenly froze.

Body. Liquid ……?

Actual spittle?

The game wanted hi to lick Qin Hengyi’s fishtail?

Zhu Qing’an: “……”

Zhu Qing’an thought of it, his white cheeks instantly became rose red, which went all the way down to his neck.

He suddenly felt that the action of shrinking in the man’s embrace for warmth also seemed a bit unnatural.

He shrank his neck and nimbly got out of the man’s embrace.

Qin Hengyi glanced at the teenager’s action and narrowed his red eyes.

The teenager’s skin was very red and hot.

Maybe he got sick from the cold?

–The teenager was also afraid of infecting him, he preferred to stay in the cold wind ……

Qin Hengyi felt even more helpless.

Qin Hengyi wanted to use his tail to circle the teenager.

But Zhu Qing’an took several steps back and whispered: “Mr. Qin, it’s a little late. I want to go back to sleep …… Also, the day is getting colder. I made the fish, remember to eat it.”

Qin Hengyi frowned, was silent for a moment, and nodded his head.

Zhu Qing’an was successfully ejected from the holographic mode.

He took off his holographic helmet and let out a sigh of relief as if he had been given a new life.

–He now had two choices.

First, go by the rules of the game, kissing and licking Qin Hengyi’s tail wounds to heal them.

Second, leave Qin Hengyi alone.

Zhu Qing’an’s mind unconsciously went to Qin Hengyi’s tail.

The game said that Qin Hengyi was ten years old when he was transformed into a mermaid, these scars, must have also been left at the age of ten.

That was a small child ah.

It was a human’s heartache.

But these things, for Zhu Qingan, was just a virtual game plot.

But for Qin Hengyi, it was a real occurrence, deeply engraved in the marrow of his bones.

Whether Qin Hengyi had amnesia or not, he must have wanted a ray of gentle bright sunlight.

Zhu Qing’an’s thoughts were in disarray, he put down the game first and opened Weibo to see the follow-up of his participation in the Jedi game.

He and his teacher, were already bundled into a CP by fans, and were hanging high on the hot search.

Homoer*tic drawings and famfics were flying around ……

But to Zhu Qing’an’s delight.

The snow line gaming company that organised the Jedi tournament had seen its stock market skyrocket because of the traffic and popularity brought by Zhu Qing’an.

They didn’t need to face the crisis of closing down again.

At the same time –

In Zhu Qing’an’s inbox, there was a new invitation letter.

From the Imperial Marine Creatures Protection Association.

The Marine Creatures Protection Association would hold a grand banquet the night after tomorrow at a meeting hall in the Empire.

Those who attended, had the opportunity to run for the current marine creatures protection ambassador.

This event was much easier than the previous variety and talent shows.

In this kind of party, there had to be many bigwigs in the entertainment industry and various other industries in attendance.

He might be able to meet new friends.

Moreover, since it was a banquet hosted by the Marine Creatures Protection Association, there had to be professionals on marine creatures.

A few days ago, his stray animal base, adopted a group of marine pups, a group of alien marine pups similar to baby seals, they were very cute.

He didn’t know much about how to feed them, so maybe he could take this opportunity to ask someone there.

Zhu Qing’an glanced at his pajamas, and somehow remembered the sets of clothing that Qin Hengyi sent when he participated in the variety show “Poorer than Poor”.

He could just wear it.

— It was Zhu Qing’an’s first time attending such a party. He couldn’t be too casual.

Zhu Qing’an wanted to get out of bed to see the clothes Qin Hengyi had given him.

But his footsteps inexplicably lurched.

Qin Hengyi …… had really helped him a lot and brought him many unforgettable memories.

In the end …… do it or not?

Zhu Qing’an closed his eyes in distress and rubbed his head –

Taking advantage of the fact that Qin Hengyi wasn’t paying attention, he could secretly l!ck the tail to heal the scars on it.

Anyway,…… the other was just a game character.

Zhu Qing’an gritted his teeth, returned to bed, put on the virtual helmet –

He re-entered the eerie sea, at this time the sea breeze was completely still, the sea didn’t make a sound, but it seemed scarier.

He turned on his flashlight and subconsciously searched for the man’s figure.

Qin Hengyi didn’t return to the sea.

Instead, he leaned against a reef on the beach and closed his eyes to rest.

The sea was still without any moonlight, dim and dark.

The man was quiet, like a handsome and tall sculpture.

Zhu Qing’an crept to the man’s side.

The cold, biting seawater lapped at Zhu Qing’an’s knees.

Zhu Qing’an looked at the man’s handsome face, and silently walked to his side, half-kneeling on the beach covered with thin seawater, and leaned close enough to l!ck the man’s long, slender tail hanging down ……

It had a very ambiguous taste.

Zhu Qing’an face felt like it was burning, he somehow managed to l!ck the scars on the man’s tail.

He suddenly felt …… this posture was a bit like …… that.

Only the legs were replaced with a fishtail.

He stretched out the tip of his tongue and prayed desperately inside – Qin Hengyi don’t suddenly wake up, don’t wake up.

Otherwise, the other would definitely think a lot of messy thoughts when he saw what he was doing.

Plus, Qin Hengyi had already acquiesced that he liked him, that kind of like.

When the time came, he wouldn’t even have the opportunity to explain.

Zhu Qing’an leaned down and continued to gently l*ck the scars on the man’s tail.

At the same time –

What he was most worried about, still happened.
