Chapter Two 2 Wei Wei Groom Kidnapping? ◎______◎

Eight o’clock at night on the dot.

The red-clad female xia stood confidently with her large knife on Chang’an’s Zhu Que Bridge. [1]
This was the place that all marriage sedans must travel through.

<> marriage ceremonies could be very grand or very simple. Wei Wei and Zhen Shui’s ceremony was very simple, just a simple trip to the Temple of the Elder of the Moon. At that time, everybody was poor, and since it was for a quest, there wasn’t a need to make it so meaningful.

But today’s ceremony between Zhen Shui and Xiao Yu Yao Yao was definitely very grand.

There were hundreds of flower wreaths on the streets, people playing gongs before the sedan that was carried by eight people, the highest grade of food at the entirely reserved restaurant-tower, not to mention everybody at the wedding banquet would receive a red pocket with 888 gold.

There were already rumours about this wedding, as Xiao Yu Yao Yao’s reputation was there and Zhen Shui was not entirely unknown either. Many were shocked at this wedding and so the players came to gape at the ceremony.

On Zhe Que Bridge, the female xia stood motionlessly, her shadow thin and expression somber.

At this moment, the world channel had exploded.

{World} [Hua Chui Hua Yu]: Everybody look, I see Zhen Shui Wu Xiang’s ex-wife on Zhu Que Bridge!

{World} [E Ai Ni]: Yup, I can see her.

{World} [Shang Xin Qiao Xia Chun Bo Lu]: Me too. *sigh* I feel her figure is so sad. We always only see the joy of the new, we never see the grief of the old.

{World} [O He He]: Kao. There’s slang again. I really hate internet slang.

{World} [◎olo◎]: I saw her earlier and now I’m standing right beside her. Ooh, today’s going to be exciting! I feel she’s going to kidnap the groom.

{World} [Yi Jian Jui Zhou Han]: I support Lu Wei Wei Wei marriage by capture!!! Xiao Yu Yao Yao belongs to me!!!

{World} [O He He]: … …

After that, the opposing side came out.

{World} [anny]: Even though Xiao Yu Yao Yao is beautiful, I still have to say, she did not do this properly. Stealing somebody’s husband and bragging about it, isn’t she afraid of karma?

{World} [Pi Li Jiao Wa] : Yeah. Lu Wei Wei Wei is a pretty good person, very loyal.

{World} [Shang Xin Qiao Xia Chun Bo Lu]: Look at Lu Wei, she’s so sad she can’t speak a word.

{World} [Dai Cao 520]: The other woman … … such a pretty woman … … there’s no need

{World} [Xiao Yu Yao Yao Bu Yao Lian 108] [2]Hehe, she’s displaying her skills at stealing somebody else’s husband. Xiao Yu Yao Yao is shameless shameless shameless shameless shameless shameless ¥%%¥※×……(the swearing was censored by the system)

This “Xiao Yu Yao Yao Bu Yao Lian 108” was Xiao Yu Yao Yao’s sworn archenemy. Nobody knew why there was such enmity. For no reason, the player will come out and swear at her. According to rumors, he was killed many times, but with each death, he got more bold. Every time after being deleted, he would register again. The number after his name was supposedly the number of times he was deleted.

At the sight of this person, Xiao Yu Yao Yao’s close friends couldn’t resist joining in.

{World} [Xiao Yu Fei Fei]: You shameless person, shut your mouth! Whose saying Yao Yao is the other woman? Don’t think so highly of yourself, you aren’t qualified to label Yao Yao the other woman !!!

{World} [Xiao Yu Qing Qing]: If somebody wants to kidnap the groom, let them try. Don’t think you are invincible if you are on the PK charts. Our Xiao Yu Family is all here, we’re just afraid nobody will try.

{World} [wsn]: Women that are on the PK charts must be monsters, Zhen Shui’s choice isn’t wrong.

Due to the chatter on the world channel, everyone started to head to Zhu Que Bridge.

Bei Wei Wei came out of the washroom and found such a scene. Her red-clad xia was standing in the middle of a huge crowd but there was an empty circle around her, standing in the very middle.

Then the speech bubbles continuously came out from the surrounding players, the most frequent being “Support Lu Wei Wei Wei groom kidnapping! Support Lu Wei Wei Wei groom kidnapping! Support Lu Wei Wei Wei groom kidnapping! Support Lu Wei Wei Wei groom kidnapping! Support Lu Wei Wei Wei groom kidnapping! Support Lu Wei Wei Wei groom kidnapping! Support Lu Wei Wei Wei groom kidnapping! Support Lu Wei Wei Wei groom kidnapping! “ Wei Wei was struck dumb.

She just got on to the game, went to Zhu Que Bridge and then left to go to the washrrom. It couldn’t have been five minutes. What could have happened?

Groom kidnapping?

Yes, the game did allow kidnapping of a spouse, but there were several requirements. First, there was a large fee that had to be paid to the system. Secondly, there had to be three continuous wins in 3 PK matches and lastly, the person has to agree to be kidnapped and consequently to the marriage. . . if the person didn’t agree, the kidnap would be considered a failure. So except for those who were seriously infatuated, only brain-dead players would try to kidnap somebody at their wedding.

What did she do that would make everybody think that she was going to attempt kidnapping?

Wei Wei looked on with a face full of despair, pondering that if she suddenly decided to escape, would the gossiping crowd think that she was heartbroken?

As Wei Wei struggled over whether to leave or not, her friends list was bouncing, full of friends asking her what was going on. Wei Wei didn’t reply to any of them, deleting every message. The sect channel was also full of discussion, the majority of the males siding with Zhen Shui and the majority of the females siding with Wei Wei. There were also some that were trying to tell Wei Wei not to take it so hard, since everybody was from the same clan, and not do anything too damaging.

The chat box started bouncing again. When Wei Wei open it, the sender was Zhen Shui Wu Xiang. He seemed to be enraged, and the tone of the message wasn’t polite at all. “What is it, weren’t you so cool with this yesterday? And I tried to repay you, it was you that didn’t accept.”

Wei Wei wanted to weep but could squeeze out any tears. She typed back powerlessly: “Friend, I only came … … to … … look … …”

  4. Considering that he’s the one that wronged her, he really should be a bit more polite in asking her what’s going on. Though she could also take the lead in telling people in sect chat that she’s just a spectator.

  5. Wow, the game setting seems rather established, especially with ‘Xiao Yu Yao Yao Bu Yao Lian 108’! Sounds like something that would definitely happen on the internet. I empathise with Wei Wei, she just wanted to watch the wedding but then a bunch of random people, even friends, start shoving expectations on her… You can do it, Wei Wei!

    Some minor things I noticed:
    ‘ marriage ceremonies could be very grand or very simple’ – was there supposed to be something in the brackets?
    ‘{World} [Dai Cao 520]: The other woman … … such a pretty woman … … there’s no need’ – full stop at end?
    ‘{World} [Xiao Yu Fei Fei]: You shameless person, shut your mouth! Whose saying Yao Yao is the other woman? Don’t think so highly of yourself, you aren’t qualified to label Yao Yao the other woman !!!’ – there’s a space between ‘woman’ and ‘!!!’, is that intentional?
    ‘Wei Wei wanted to weep but could squeeze out any tears’ – since she’s trying to weep, doesn’t it mean she wasn’t able to? In that case, should ‘could’ be changed to ‘couldn’t’?

    Thanks for the chapter! xD
