Chapter 385: Familiar Face (Part One)
What was this!
Wei Shuyi felt ashamed.
However, there were dozens of comments under those embarrassing comments.
Wei Shuyi had always been an influential figure in school. Even his farts were said to be fragrant, let alone the sad words that seemed very classy in that era.
He held his forehead and quickly deleted all the words.
He entered the comment section again and saw the interesting comments from the past—
Occupying Your Dad to Be Your Mother: Don’t worry about me. I’m only crying.
Conquering Your Mother to Be Your Father: God bless you, a bolt of lightning will kill you.
Wei Shuyi was speechless.
He refused to admit that the two of them, who were second-year students, were his two most loyal friends in middle school. At that time, the two of them were in a passionate relationship but they didn’t want to get married. In the end, both of them became someone else’s wife and husband…
Although they were quite stupid, it had to be said that that age was really interesting.
Wei Shuyi looked at the message board and saw that it was past 1am before he left the QQ space reluctantly. He turned off his computer and went to rest.
The next day at work, Wei Shuyi thought of those messages and couldn’t help but smile a few times.
After work, Wei Shuyi ran to read the QQ messages of his former friends. After reading them, he thought that luckily, everyone was once an idiot.
This kind of foolish thinking made it seem like he was not that stupid. It was very comforting.
Just as he was thinking about it, the computer suddenly beeped.
Wei Shuyi was stunned for a moment before realizing that it was a QQ message.
It had been many years since he last heard this sound.
He opened QQ and saw that it was a person called Chen Jie.
It seemed like there was such a person in the class when he was in her first year of high school. She was chubby, but her voice was gentle. She should be a very good-looking girl when she loses weight.
Chen Jie: [In person?]
Wei Shuyi: [Yes.]
Chen Jie: [I didn’t expect you to return to QQ one day.]
Wei Shuyi: [What are you saying… Why? Is it strange that I use QQ?]
Chen Jie: [Of course. We’ve had a few class reunions, and we’ve sent invitations to everyone’s email addresses. You’re the only one who doesn’t reply to email, QQ, or WeChat. Your phone number has changed again, so no one can contact you.]
Wei Shuyi: [I see…]
Chen Jie: [Yeah, Colonel Wei, how are you doing? Are you married?]
Wei Shuyi: [No.]
Chen Jie: [Are you in love?]
Wei Shuyi: [No.]
Chen Jie: [… Is this what they mean by low-quality marriage is not as good as high-quality singlehood?]
Wei Shuyi: […]
She chatted with Chen Jie for more than half an hour. In the end, Chen Jie said that her child was crying, so she ended the conversation.
Wei Shuyi looked at the chat and sighed.
Back then, she was famous for being chubby in class. Now, she was already married and had two children. He, who used to be the school hunk, was actually still a bachelor.
Wei Shuyi received 10,000 critical damage points.
Hearing Chen Jie’s words, he also had the urge to check his QQ email. He made himself a cup of coffee and brought it to his study.
As soon as he entered his QQ mailbox, he realized that he had more than 300 unread emails.
Wei Shuyi flipped to the bottom and deleted the emails after confirming that there was no useful information. Finally, there was only one last page left. On the last page, there were wedding invitations from former friends and emotional laments.
He read the emails one by one and then replied seriously.
Wei Shuyi tidied up his email before going to sleep.
He really did not expect that after using WeChat for so many years, there were still so many people who missed him on QQ.
This feeling was not bad.
Over the next few days, old classmates came to greet Wei Shuyi one after another.
Wei Shuyi gradually felt that life was not as boring as before.
On the day of the Chinese Valentine’s Day, Wei Shuyi was chatting with a friend on QQ. At this moment, a new message popped up in the lower right corner.
There was a new email.
Wei Shuyi thought that it was a lost message and opened his email casually. However, he saw an unexpected letter. The sender was—
Wind Game Company.
The email attracted Wei Shuyi’s attention.
“Parallel World has finally returned. Today is the official launch beta. I sincerely invite the old player ‘Happy Person’ to return to participate in the beta…”
Wei Shuyi immediately opened the email.
The email said: Dear player called Happy Person, greetings. After a long time, we finally reunited. After a year and a half, Parallel World is finally going to meet everyone! Tonight, at 9: 30 pm, Parallel World officially begins to launch a beta test. We sincerely invite the old player, “Happy Person”, to return to the game and participate in the launch beta.
When old players returned, they would receive rich rewards…
Wei Shuyi finished reading the email and felt a little emotional.
He did not expect that in this era where gaming software was everywhere, Parallel world had actually been operating for more than ten years. Its end was delayed until the end of the previous year before it was taken down.
Now it was back.
This game was once Wei Shuyi’s favorite game in his youth. He thought about it and downloaded Parallel World.
In the past, Parallel World had a green icon with a small planet drawn on it. It meant that it was another parallel world with the avatars of game players living inside. Now, the icon had turned red, and the small planet had become a book.
Wasn’t life a book?
This game was a complete simulation of life. When you entered the game, you had to choose your gender. Then, you would start as a newborn and grow up in this world. This world was called the Star and Moon Empire. Everyone had to receive twelve years of free education before choosing a profession they were interested in. Of course, there were also children who got into conflict with people and dropped out of school midway.
There were all kinds of majors that could be chosen.
Singer, actor, salesperson, doctor, police officer, even professional drag queens…
At that time, Wei Shuyi grew up in the game until he was 18 years old and chose to be a doctor.
After choosing to be a doctor, he had to take part in the entire game’s internal exams. If he passed the exams, they would be accepted by the Empire Medical University. Those who performed well in school would receive a lot of rewards. After graduation, they would be able to work in the Empire General Hospital of the First Class A hospital in the parallel world.
The director and patients of the Empire General Hospital were all NPCs in the game. The vice director, chief, chief, nurse, and even the cook in the canteen were all players’ real roles.
In the game, they could also get married.
They had to fall in love first. After they got married, they had to live together. The salary they earned was shared. If they wanted a divorce, their assets would be split.
Wei Shuyi remembered that he had played in the game until he graduated from the Empire Hospital and entered the Empire General Hospital to work. After that, he bade farewell to the game forever.
It took half an hour to download the game.
Wei Shuyi stopped reminiscing.
He thought that she should have forgotten what happened more than ten years ago, but when he thought about it, he realized that she still remembered those things.
He remembered that the login account was his QQ number. The password was the same as the QQ password.
Wei Shuyi clicked on login and had to queue up to log in.
He was quite surprised. It seemed like the game had returned this time. The publicity work was done very well, and there were quite a lot of players. After waiting for two minutes, Wei Shuyi logged into the game. The moment he entered the game, an anime man in a gray suit and pants jumped out.
This cartoon character was Wei Shuyi. There were two green words above his head—Happy person.
Wei Shuyi was quite surprised. He didn’t expect that when he used this game again, his old account could still be used.
This time, many people were invited to the public launch beta. Wei Shuyi entered his house and realized that there was no furniture left. His profession was still a doctor. This was a test. He did not need to start as a baby and was in the state after he graduated from university.
Wei Shuyi went to the hospital to work, take care of patients, and participate in surgeries…
A day later, the Public Beta ended.
Wei Shuyi also logged into the official website. He reported a few small problems and turned off his computer.
After a while, Wei Shuyi got busy again. He was busy until the Mid-Autumn Festival in the country.
He opened his QQ email and realized that Parallel World was officially released.
Wei Shuyi had nothing to do tomorrow, so he didn’t need to sleep early. He turned on his computer and started the game. He entered his account, password, and logged in.
This time, he only waited for ten seconds before logging in. Wei Shuyi was stunned when he saw himself in a white coat in the middle of the screen.
The outfit he was wearing was the outfit he wore when he left the game more than ten years ago…
Did that mean that the game had always saved all the data for old players?
Wei Shuyi returned to his house. The moment he entered, he saw two pairs of shoes side by side. One was for men and the other was for women.
He stared at the pink shoes and stopped moving again.
He clearly remembered that before he left the game, he had already sent a divorce agreement to his partner. Did she not sign it? Or did she not return to the game after that and did not see his email?
Wei Shuyi had been married in the game before. Like him, the other party was also a cardiothoracic surgeon.
Wei Shuyi was one of the earliest players to play Parallel World. The game had just been released for six months when he registered. As all the players had to study, there were dozens of schools in the Star Moon Empire. Wei Shuyi met that person when he was in his second year of high school.
She was transferred from another district and was his deskmate. That person was very talkative, but Wei Shuyi was a man of few words. In class, she always knocked on Wei Shuyi and called him brother. It was quite annoying. At that time, Wei Shuyi was only 18 years old. His parents had just passed away two years ago, and Wei Shuyi was actually quite happy to have someone who was talkative accompanying him.
After that, Wei Shuyi got used to being annoyed by that person and gradually got closer to her.
They took the medical examination together, entered the Empire Medical School together, graduated together, got married, and entered the Empire General Hospital for an internship.
In real life, Wei Shuyi got into the Medical University when he was 17 years old. He went to university and more and more people fell in love with him. There were also people who confessed to Wei Shuyi, but he was not interested. He had a good impression of the girl in the game who shared the same ideals as him.
After his twentieth birthday, Wei Shuyi wanted to see that person.
They agreed on a meeting place. On that day, he went to see her expectantly. In the end, he waited in the cold wind for a day and a night, but that person did not come.
