League of Legends: League of Unknowns - Chapter 531
Lin Xin didn’t mind it, walking off to make a pot of tea, and as he was doing so, he asked, “How is it with the games, what did your mother mean by championship just now?”
“It’s not a game, it’s e-sports. The China champion for League of Legends professional league!” Lin Dong corrected him as he tapped away on the notebook.
“Oh, it’s the one they’re calling LOL, right. A lot of people are playing that game. The youths in my company are always making a racket about some ‘premade’ during lunch hour, disturbing other people’s rest, really!” Lin Xin said.
“Yeah, the game’s really popular. The local competition has been done, and in September and October, we’re going abroad to play. I came back this time to take the Hukou book to settle some documents and procedures in the office.” Lin Dong said, his eyes still on the screen in front of him as the clicking and clacking sounds continued.
“Going abroad again? The last time you went there was that commotion, this time, you’re going again…” Lin Xin said somewhat unhappily.
“What ‘I’m done’! I’m telling you, without your mother’s approval, don’t even think about taking the Hukou book to process your going abroad!” Lin Xin said.
“I meant, I’m done with the system. I maintained the original appearance of the system and I’ve added the protective wall that you wanted.” Lin Dong said, pointing at the notebook.
Lin Xin was stunned.
Lin Dong stood up and walked toward the bathroom.
Lin Xin was still watching him, the corner of his mouth twitching slightly.
It was impossible for Lin Xin not to feel any anger inside, this kid had brought a huge disaster on the family, and no matter how good a person was, it was impossible to maintain a calm mind at that.
Only, at this moment, Lin Xin understood why he and Bai Wenyi had never really blamed him for that matter. Because his talents were practically a perfect wonderful gift from the gods, it could drown out all his wrongdoings, making them unable to muster any anger toward him.
Something that Lin Xin had spent his whole life researching, but Lin Dong could learn it in such a short period of time. Not only that, he could even make it better, wasn’t that something to be proud of?
“Their surveillance on you has ended?” Lin Xin took a deep breath to settle the sudden onslaught of emotions that he felt.
“There’s still two months left.” Lin Dong replied.
In the past five years, Lin Dong would feel a pair of eyes on him from time to time, making him uneasy.
Soon, soon, all of this would be over.
“After it’s over, find a private company and work hard. With your talents, it won’t be long before you can be the top designer in our country and maybe even overseas…You can easily earn money from there and foreigners also have a high interest in this, not like our country who feels that this is not worth it.” Lin Xin said.
Lin Dong shook his head.
“Why? What else have you been planning to do!” Lin Xin said.
“I’m playing professional e-sports, this is my job. At least…until we take the World’s championship, I won’t be doing anything else.” Lin Dong explained.
“Where’s the future in playing that!” Lin Xin stood up all of a sudden.
These five years had not been easy. Lin Xin really hoped that Lin Dong would be able to buck up and use his talents in the appropriate field so that their family could turn around for the better…
He was fed up with this old elevator and this old place with the gossiping aunties and those shameless small companies!
All these years, he had endured it and was fed up. Since graduating from university, he had always been a proud man, when had he ever had to endure anything like this!
“Don’t bother about what I do. What I want to do, I will definitely accomplish it.” Lin Dong said.
“You…you’ll only be happy when you make me die from anger, is it!?” Lin Xin was obviously getting angry.
“I will bear the responsibilities of what I do. But the things that I want to do, I will also definitely finish it.” Lin Dong said.
“Hmph, do you think that by playing that game, you will be able to get back all those things?” Lin Xin was mindful of his wife’s warnings and he reigned in his temper.
Lin Dong didn’t reply, he couldn’t give up on e-sports either way. Even if he hadn’t personally witnessed the fresh red blood that flowed freely from the wrist onto the floor which was split for the sake of passionate e-sports…
Not long after, Bai Wenyi returned. She spoke a few words to Lin Dong before heading into the kitchen to prepare dinner.
Lin Xin had not spoken for a long time, and finally, he called out to the kitchen, “Your son wants to go overseas for a competition.”
“Oh, that’s great!” Bai Wenyi said happily.
“…” Hearing what Bai Wenyi said, Lin Xin didn’t feel like saying anything else.
Lin Dong wanted to avoid a quarrel with Lin Xin, hence, he went into the kitchen to help Bai Wenyi wash the vegetables. Just as he was about to begin, his phone started to ring.
“What’s up, Zhou?” Lin Dong asked.
“I met Zhao Tinghua in my hometown.” Zhou Yan replied.
“Ah, how’s his situation?” Lin Dong said.
“Beat up some local ruffians and they want me to cough up some cash. I can’t get a hold of Meiqi, could you ask her to advance me some money first, I think about a few thousand.” Zhou Yan said.
“Alright, I’ll let her know. What happened, is everything alright?” Lin Dong asked.
“It’s fine, let’s do this first.” Zhou Yan’s tone was decisive.
“Okay.” Lin Dong nodded his head, and after Zhou Yan had hung up, he felt a strange feeling blossoming.
Qu country was a country with poor economic development, and describing it as a country was also pushing it because it looked more to be a gray area. The streets were worn out and the cracks in cement were everywhere. The houses were old, there was moss when it rained, the walls were broken, and the ditches gave off an uncomfortable feeling all around.
In a muddy alley, a burly man stood in a puddle, his face black.
He put down the phone in his hand, his gaze on the three men who were laughing and carrying bats in their hands. The three men were adorned with metal chains, and you could tell at a glance that they were ruffians. From the way they were holding the bats, it was obvious that it was not just for show.
“That thing, see him once then beat him once. He dared to be so arrogant in front of us… so what if we teased his sister? What if one day I get unhappy and take her, what can he do to us!” The long haired man who was walking in the middle said.
“Hahaha, then you wouldn’t leave us behind either?” The man who placed the bat on his shoulder, standing on the left side said.
The other guy just gave a lustful laugh.
“Hey, stupid big guy in front, don’t block our way. Don’t you see these guys in our hands!” The long-haired guy with a sloppy face said.
Zhou Yan stood there, his body moving slightly, as though he was giving way to them.
The long-haired guy gave him a haughty look, swaggering on past Zhou Yan.
Suddenly, a hand shot out to grab him!
This same hand lifted the long-haired guy with ease, throwing him into the guy who was holding the bat!
The two men were completely unprepared, crashing into the wall, their eyes seeing stars!
When the last guy finally reacted, suddenly Zhou Yan’s feet kicked out, planting itself in his stomach. The guy shrunk into himself, unable to scream as he kept gasping and choking!
With a punch, he smashed the face of the guy who was curled up, breaking his nose. The blood splattered out, the person falling into the muddy waters, not able to get up.
“F*cker!” The long-haired guy finally stood up, raising his bat against Zhou Yan’s head!
Zhou Yan didn’t even bother dodging, the bat landing on his head didn’t even hurt at all!
Another punch, this time on the long-haired guy’s face, he could feel the bones breaking, the sounds were crisp.
The other guy was shocked by Zhou Yan’s actions!
This f*cker had shoved two away, one kick and one punch had instantly downed one, while the other one had been crippled by one punch. He hadn’t even tried to dodge their bat, the damage was on a whole different level!
The bat in his hands was tossed away, and since he knew that he couldn’t beat him, he chose to run. The other two were rolling on the floor and crawling away, an extremely embarrassing scene indeed. As they ran, they were still throwing curses…
Zhou Yan’s face was still dark as he glared at them, and they didn’t dare to say anything more as they ran away as fast as they could.
Zhou Yan didn’t bother chasing them and turned back instead, walking along the alley until he reached the end. His eyes were on the person who was sitting down and leaning against the wall, his body full of bruises and blood.
Zhou Yan bent down, pulling the person’s arm across his shoulder, lifting him up.
“Im fine.” He stood up on his own, but it looked like his leg had taken a heavy blow from the bat, making him unsteady.
Zhou Yan still held him up and asked, “You didn’t injure your hands, right?”
“Impossible.” Zhao Tinghua said.
As a professional player, how could he not protect his hands properly. Even if his head got bashed, he wouldn’t allow anything to hurt his hands.
“I’ll send you to the hospital.” Zhou Yan said.
“I don’t want to go.”
“I’ll treat you.”
In the game, Tinghua could face off against many opponents alone, and no matter how strong they were, they would still fall to him. But in reality, facing three guys with bats, he was helpless against them. Instead, Zhou Yan being able to 1 vs 3 in reality made Tinghua unsatisfied.
“You’ve also come back to process the formalities?” Tinghua asked, limping as he walked.
“Yeah. You guys changed bosses, how has it been?” Zhou Yan asked.
With the fall of Xu Pingyang, Sky Club had dropped from being the number one club. Now, the strongest club should be Thunder, followed by Daemons and Revelation.
Thunder Club didn’t have any substantial teams, but they were well versed in operations and had signed on a few strong teams to expand their influence on their position.
There was some inkling that Sky Club would merge with Thunder Club, so if Sky Club was going to enter the S International League, it would most likely be under Thunder Club’s name.
“It’s not bad, the money’s much better.” Tinghua replied.
“You should do it with us, the money is all our own.” Zhou Yan pointed out.
“Heh, and then disband after two years? I can’t afford to not have income for even a month, and also, some things are not about the money.” Tinghua retorted.
“You’re just too stubborn.” Zhou Yan said.
“Whatever you want to think…wait, let me tell my sister that I fell off from a bicycle.” Tinghua said.
“You wouldn’t get such serious injuries from falling off a bicycle, she’s not stupid.” Zhou Yan pointed out.
“A motorcycle then!” Tinghua flinched, gritting his teeth in pain.
“You’re a celebrity now, you should be more mindful…”
“Nonsense, who would recognize me in this godforsaken place…”
