VCRMM: Chapter 124 Part 1
Xu Yuheng confirmed it three times. He read the system notification line by line, word by word. Then he found that he really wasn’t mistaken. Si Sheng’s favorability toward him had really increased by 20,000 overnight!
What was this? Was there a bug with the game?
He pushed up the fallen frame of his glasses and was about to go offline to find Old Wang to check it. Then he heard the communicator ringing and looked down.
Xiao Li: [Second Brother, tell me when you are online. I have something to tell you.]
Xu Yuheng paused. Somehow, he associated this message with Si Sheng’s favorability and had a bad premonition in his heart.
He frowned and edited a reply.
He received a reply not long after sending it.
Xiao Li: [Are you still at the pavilion?]
Xu Yuheng: [Yes, it is where I went offline yesterday.]
Xiao Li: [Then I’ll go over and find you.]
Xu Yuheng paused. He raised his eyes and looked around.
This was a lake pavilion.
The artificial lake was frozen over. The wind was blowing over the ice and carried a cold chill. He could still feel the cold even if he lowered the realism.
Xu Yuheng frowned slightly. He hesitated for a moment before replying: [It is too cold outside. Let me go and find you.]
In the bedroom, Xu Sili was wrapped in a thick winter coat and preparing to leave. Then he couldn’t help pausing when he saw his second brother’s reply.
He said he would go to the pavilion but in fact, he thought that if things didn’t go well, he could pretend to be pitiful. After all, the day was cold and pretending to be pitiful could definitely work wonders.
However, his second brother proposed it and it wasn’t easy for him to insist.
“Okay,” he replied. “Then I’ll send someone to pick you up.”
Xu Sili took off the coat in a depressed manner and turned to instruct Janice to find a maid to pick up this person from the pavilion.
Just as Janice took the order, Si Sheng’s figure appeared in the bedroom. He looked at Xu Sili and said, “Your Majesty, let this servant go.”
Xu Sili blinked. He was about to speak when he saw Janice and the others watching. He sent them away first before walking in front of Si Sheng.
“Are you really going to pick up my second brother?”
He frowned slightly and said with some concern, “It is better to wait for me to explain it to him before you meet him again.”
Just yesterday, the two of them were at each other’s throats. Xu Sili suspected that something bad would happen if they met alone.
Si Sheng raised his hand and tucked the young man’s silver hair behind his ears before smiling in a reassuring manner.
“I misunderstood before…”
He said softly, “Both emotionally and rationally, I have to do something so that your brother can accept me again.”
Xu Sili pursed his lips when seeing his serious expression. “Okay. I’ll wait for you here.”
“Yes, I’ll be back soon.”
Si Sheng touched the soft ear and hesitated. Then he lowered his head, kissed the young man’s forehead lightly and turned to stride away.
Seeing the cloak flying behind the man and the back that was still so dashing and handsome, Xu Sili reached out and touched the forehead that was kissed.
Si Sheng… he should be fine, right?
He thought like this and instructed Janice to clean up the bedroom and prepare hot tea and snacks that his brother liked.
Janice took the order and exited the emperor’s palace. She was just about to give instructions to the maids below her when she glimpsed something out of the corner of her eye and looked sideways.
She saw that at the end of the corridor, the marshal’s steps somehow became slower and slower. He stepped around the corner at a turtle speed.
Couldn’t Lord Marshal… teleport?
Janice blinked suspiciously. It was only when she was reminded by the maid beside her that she came to her senses and continued with the orders she hadn’t finished.
Si Sheng walked around the corner and stopped after taking two steps.
His usual indifferent and solemn expression was long gone. He frowned deeply and his expression showed a bit of sadness. This provoked the shadow guards who were hiding near the emperor’s palace to take a few more looks.
What could make their patron saint look like this? Was it possible that the sky was going to collapse?
Si Sheng was immersed in his annoyed thoughts and wasn’t aware of their gazes. Then he regained his senses and disappeared in place.
Xu Yuheng waited in the pavilion.
During the waiting period, a team of patrolling guards passed by. The strength of each guard was unfathomable and their aura was strong, making them feel very dangerous.
The experience of having the NPCs hostile to him yesterday and even refusing to let him enter the palace made Xu Yuheng feel a bit afraid. He was thinking about whether to hide or not when a guard discovered him.
He thought something unpleasant would happen but the guard’s attitude was surprisingly good. The guard asked why he was here and after checking his token, the guard didn’t embarrass him again.
In addition, after knowing that he was waiting for the emperor to receive him, the guard left another guard here to prevent other patrols from disturbing him again.
Xu Yuheng’s mood was a bit subtle, especially when he saw that the person who came to pick him up was Si Sheng.
The guard who remained had shining eyes when he saw Si Sheng. He stumbled and made a report before returning to the guard team.
Seeing the back that staggered and nearly fell, one could tell how excited he was.
Si Sheng’s prestige in the Roland Empire could be seen.
Xu Yuheng looked at him and slightly raised an eyebrow.
Si Sheng felt his gaze and stiffened. The unpleasant encounters flashed in his mind, making him want to go back in time to the first time he met this person on the shuttle.
At that time, Ah Li’s brother found the control room and was very friendly to him, but he…
Si Sheng sighed in his heart. However, even someone as strong as him couldn’t turn back time. Now he could only find a way to repair their relationship as soon as possible.
He took a deep breath and stepped into the pavilion.
Xu Yuheng looked at him with crossed eyes, scrutiny and vigilance in his eyes.
According to the game settings, Si Sheng’s age was only 25 years old. This was seven or eight years younger than him but Si Sheng’s aura was very powerful.
The tall body and indifferent and resolute expression made him look extremely unapproachable. This person always inexplicably lowered his favorability since the first meeting. This made Xu Yuheng really have a bad impression of him.
However, today’s Si Sheng seemed a bit less confident than before. Under Xu Yuheng’s suspicious gaze, this powerful patron saint stood in front of him and suddenly bowed deeply to him.
Xu Yuheng, who didn’t expect him to bow, instinctively took a step back to avoid an attack, “……”
What was this person doing?
Then he thought of the system notification just now.
In one night, Si Sheng’s favorability increased by 20,000. It changed from the original ‘deadly enemy’ to ‘respect.’ There were so many ups and downs that it made Xu Yuheng wonder if there was really a bug.
“Last night and all the things that happened before… I beg your pardon for the offense.”
Si Sheng’s unhurried voice was heard.
He was still bent over and his back straight. It was a very standard apology bow for the Roland Empire and his respectful attitude made it impossible to find fault.
Xu Yuheng pursed his lips slightly.
It wasn’t that he had no tolerance for others. He experienced ups and downs in the business world, especially in China. The most important thing was to value peace. After all, behave like an upright person and it would be easy to meet again in the future.
However, this was the game.
Even if it wasn’t a game, Si Sheng’s attitude toward him changed so much that it made him a bit wary.
What caused him to change so much?
Xu Yuheng pondered on it. He cautiously didn’t accept the apology but said curiously, “Forget it for the time being. I just want to know why Lord Marshal was so hostile to me before?”
Si Sheng stared at the ground and was silent for a while.
At first, it was because he looked a bit similar to Ah Li. This made him dislike it. Later it…
Thinking of this embarrassing mistake, Si Sheng closed his eyes. Finally, he gritted his teeth and said, “I have a heart toward His Majesty and I misunderstood you before. That is why…”
Before Si Sheng could finish speaking, he was grabbed by the collar and forced to look into Xu Yuheng’s angry eyes.
“What the f*k are you talking about? You want to f*k my brother?”
Si Sheng looked at him quietly. This was regarded as acquiescence.
Xu Yuheng didn’t know whether he was crazy or if this guy in front of him was crazy. An NPC wanted to mess with his family’s Xiao Li?
Suddenly, he remembered Xiao Wu’s previous question.
Xiao Wu asked him what it was like to kiss because he secretly saw it…
F*k, so it was this guy!
Seeing how this bast*rd’s attitude toward him was so different from before, it was obvious that Xiao Li had told him a lot. In addition, he just slipped up and said that Xiao Li was his brother, but this guy didn’t react!
Xu Yuheng’s brain crashed a bit.
He stared at Si Sheng fiercely. Finally, he pushed Si Sheng away and strode outside the pavilion.
He was going to find Xiao Li and ask for an explanation!
Si Sheng stared at the back of the man who left angrily and lowered his eyes slightly helplessly. Then he raised his feet to follow.
He saw Xu Yuheng walking all the way in the opposite direction and had to give him a reminder from behind.
“Second Brother, the bedroom is in that direction.”
Xu Yuheng froze. Then he turned around and glared at him fiercely. “Who the hell is your Second Brother? Don’t call me that!”
Then he rushed in the direction that Si Sheng pointed in.
He used the Light Body technique and his speed was very fast. Meanwhile, Si Sheng was following him leisurely but he wasn’t left behind at all. He maintained a short distance.
Xu Yuheng was irritated in his heart. However, the road to the emperor’s palace was full of twists and turns and he needed Si Sheng’s help to avoid getting lost. This made him more and more unhappy.
Finally, he came to the emperor’s residence. Before he could get closer, Janice greeted him.
“Lord Brave, His Majesty is waiting for you.”
