Chapter 1244: Why Do You Want to Know About Him?
Ning Shu: …
She almost felt like slapping herself. What did she ask that for? Just the sound of twenty million points made her heart stop.
“Why does it take so many points?” This time it had only taken three million to become an intermediate task-taker. How come it required so many points to become an advanced task-taker? From three million to twenty million, how many multiples was that? It was six times as much!
It would have been better not to know.
“How long will it take to earn that many points?” Ning Shu felt a little like there was nothing left to live for.
Ning Shu was speechless. What was with this?
Forget it, she’d just have to go step by step. If it was 20 million, then she’d do 20 million.
Ning Shu sat down cross-legged on the sofa and silently chanted the Unsurpassable Martial Arts. Once she finished training, she picked a book from the bookshelf and slowly started flipping through it.
Something suddenly occurred to her and she stopped reading to ask 2333, “You know that person I encountered earlier in that task? Do you know what his name is? Who is he? And how come he can wipe out task-takers?”
“What are you asking this for? I don’t know who he is either. I don’t know any of the higher ups,” said 2333 mildly. “Why are you trying to find out his identity?”
“He was able to wipe out task-takers so easily. If I find out who he is, the next time I see him I can make sure to hide far, far away.” Even now, just recalling that experience of having that pitch black gun barrel pointed at her made her hair rise on end, even though she was currently in her spiritual state. It was seriously terrifying.
“Oh, then why don’t you just make sure to hide far away,” replied 2333, unconcerned.
This was a matter of great importance that pertained to her survival. Couldn’t he be a little more serious?
“As long as you don’t do anything that exceeds your bounds, who would bother to come kill you? You’re overthinking things,” said 2333 contemptuously. “For those who are truly strong, you’re just an ant. Who would pay attention to the ants that are next to their foot?”
Ning Shu: ╭(￣▽￣)╯╧═╧ single-handed flip
It was always so irritating to talk to 2333.
So she shut up and went back to reading. There was no way to hold a pleasant conversation with 2333 anyway.
In the system space, there was only the sound of Ning Shu turning the pages of the book. After a good while, she finally finished reading the book and leisurely put the book back on the shelf.
She watered the bonsai, then ran for a while. Afterwards, she exchanged for fasting pills, water, medicine, fake death medicine and some other necessities from the system marketplace.
“Alright, let’s start the task,” said Ning Shu to 2333. Afterwards, she closed her eyes and waited for 2333 to transfer her.
However, even after waiting for a good while, there was no change. She didn’t feel the usual dizziness.
What’s going on?
When Ning Shu opened her eyes, she saw that a woman was standing in front of her and staring at her quizzically.
She looked around. This was her system space. How did this person get in here?
“Are you the one who’s going to be counterattacking for me?” The woman finally spoke. She was wearing hospital garments, which made her look extremely thin.
Her face was very pale and her lips were tinged blue. She had a very small face. It was like the legendary face shape that was only as big as your palm. Her facial features were also quite exquisite. In all earnestness though, the sight of this tiny face being pale due to illness only made people feel bad. It didn’t feel beautiful at all.
“What are you doing? The entrustor’s asking you a question! Once you become an intermediate task-taker, you can meet the entrustor beforehand. Did you forget?” When 2333 saw Ning Shu’s stupefied expression, he couldn’t stop himself from nudging her.
Ning Shu finally snapped out of it and hastily said, “I am. What’s your wish?”
“My name is Ni Jing. I want that damned cheating couple to suffer.” Ni Qian looked at Ning Shu and said softly, “That’s all I want.”
Ning Shu thought for a moment, then asked, “You’re married?”
“Yes. I’m no longer an intact woman.” Ni Jing’s eyes filled with tears. “In the end, he told me that he had fallen in love with someone else. That there was no right or wrong in love, only whether there was love or not.”
Ning Shu: …
Things that involved emotions were seriously so troublesome.
“Do you have any other wishes besides this?” asked Ning Shu.
Ni Jing shook her head. “This is all I want. I want them to suffer.”
“Entrustors must pay a price. What are you prepared to pay?” asked Ning Shu.
Ni Jing pressed her lips together. “I’m willing to offer up all of my soul power, keeping only my soul source to reincarnate and start anew.”
