Chapter 386: Familiar Face (Part Two)
That person had lied to him.
The famous Colonel Wei of the Medical University had been fooled by his online girlfriend!
After returning, Wei Shuyi caught a cold.
This cold was especially serious. He went to the hospital to stay for seven days before it gradually improved. When he returned to school, he went to the game immediately. Seeing that the other party neither apologized, explained why or even went online, Wei Shuyi determined that she was deliberately playing with him. In a fit of anger, he wrote a divorce letter, signed it, and mailed it to the other party before deleting the game.
He had never played Parallel World since.
Wei Shuyi was a little surprised when his thoughts drifted back to reality. He thought that he had already forgotten the ridiculous things he did when he was young. It turned out that he still remembered them.
He had never met that person before, but they had known each other for three years.
They would log into the game at a fixed time every day, play games together, and chat together…
Wei Shuyi stared blankly for a while before coming back to his senses. He clicked on “Go home” and put on his shoes.
He had just put on his shoes when a notification screen popped up—
[Happy Person, welcome back to the house of love!]
[Congratulations, you have received a luxurious gift from an old player. 100 pink diamonds, 10,000 love points for a husband and wife, 10,000 merchandise coupons, and a luxury couple sports car.]
Wei Shuyi pressed the button in the upper right corner and another notification screen popped up on the screen.
[Congratulations to player Happy Person and player Elegant Beauty. You have become the only couple in this game who has been married for ten years. The company will give you two Cartier wedding rings and VIP privileges for a year… Please call the official game website customer service to receive the physical prize.]
Wei Shuyi was a little surprised. The game company had actually given him a pair of real Cartier wedding rings.
He was even more surprised that he and his partner were the only couple in the game who had been married for ten years without a divorce.
Wei Shuyi’s heart beat faster as he stared at the username Elegant Beauty.
He had long forgotten that person’s username. He only remembered that someone had once hurt him.
Wei Shuyi smiled bitterly at himself. “How can there be such a coincidence?” It was just a name, and it happened to be similar.
He noted down the customer service phone on the official website and closed the pop up.
He sat in the living room of his house in the game and saw a few options flashing on the menu bar on the right side of the computer.
Couple, backpack, props, email…
Wei Shuyi opened the couple menu and entered his and Elegant Beauty’s couple page.
He saw that there was a ring icon on both his and the other party’s profile picture. In the middle of the two of them was a golden lock. The arrow landed on the golden lock, and the introduction of the item appeared on the golden lock—
[Love is harder than gold and is sold for 200 yuan. It has the effect of locking up your marriage and preventing divorce. Once used, it cannot be canceled.] 200 yuan of pink diamonds was 200 yuan.
This was simply a cheat in marriage!
Wei Shuyi saw the divorce letter he had sent to the other party under the main page. It had his signature on it, but it did not have the other party’s.
The other party only said, “I still like you. I won’t leave you even if I die.”
In an instant, the image of the person who lived in his memory began to live.
She seemed to like talking in such a rude tone.
After logging out of the couple’s main page, Wei Shuyi looked at the email menu.
Before he left the game permanently, he had read all of his emails. Who exactly sent it?
Wei Shuyi’s eyes flashed, but he still opened his email.
The titles of the unread emails were red, and the ones that were read were black. This game even kept the past emails. It was really thoughtful.
Wei Shuyi looked at the unread emails.
He clicked it open and realized that the email was from ten years ago. The content of the email appeared in the middle of the computer screen in the form of a magazine—
[This year, I lived in a daze. Too many things have happened. The separation of my loved ones has tortured me until I almost went crazy. I’m completely alone now.]
[He left. He had finally changed his heart and thought that he could live healthy until he was old, but he still left.]
[The ten days before his death were especially painful. The first time I saw his drug addiction acting up, I was so frightened that I couldn’t speak. He fell to the ground, twitched, and screamed. He cried and begged me to kill him and let him die. I really felt terrible…]
[That Tuesday afternoon, I received a message from him. In the message, he told me to live well. He said he loved me, and he said he was leaving the world. The world was so bitter and painful. He wanted to die, and he begged me to fulfill his wish.]
[I ran home and saw his ashen face and hideous corpse.]
[I was afraid. I collapsed to the ground and howled.]
[From then on, I could see him dead even if I closed my eyes.]
[He doesn’t love me at all. If he really did, he wouldn’t treat me like this.]
[He begged me to fulfill his wish. Who will fulfill my wish?]
[After he died, I didn’t dare to go home for a long time. I was afraid. I was traumatised. He died under the hanging light in the middle of my living room, his face facing the door. During that time, I had nightmares every night. At night, I panicked and had to stay in A hotel.]
Lying on the bed in the hotel room, I felt so cold.
[In the middle of the night, I often felt that my breathing was uneven, and it was as if a huge stone was pressing down on me. I always wondered if he could not bear to leave me and came to see me in the middle of the night.]
[I screwed up last year’s college entrance examination.]
[I’ve lost a lot of weight this year. I almost broke down a few times.]
[This year, I watched a lot of anti-drug promotional videos and a lot of anti-drug documentaries. There are thousands of people in this world who are experiencing or have already experienced the same kind of pain as my brother. Some of them are already in their sixties or seventies. Some of them are even newborn babies.]
[I gave up being a doctor and I want to be a narcotics police officer in the future. Uncle Song said that if I wanted to be a drug police officer, I better get into the Criminal Police Academy and study in the forbidden drug department.]
[So I plan to apply for the Criminal Police Academy.]
[Brother, are you a doctor?]
[Study well and be a doctor in the future. Do more good deeds and save more people.]
[I will work hard to get into the police academy and try to be a narcotics police officer. I want to catch bad people. I want to think that there are fewer people in the world who suffer like my brother.]
[Brother, I’m sorry…]
[I broke my promise that day.]
[Those few days happened to be when my brother was in rehab. I was living in a daze and forgot to inform you. You’re probably very angry and resentful towards me. You’re about to divorce me.]
[But what should I do? I still like you and I don’t want a divorce.]
[I’m taking the college entrance examination tomorrow. I hope I can get good results. 2012-6-29.]
When Wei Shuyi finished reading this email, his heart was trembling.
He felt incredulous, and his heart started racing uncontrollably.
A thought that he knew was absurd but made him excited lingered in his mind for a long time. Perhaps Elegant Beauty really was Beauty Wu!
He calmed down and opened the second last email.
[I got the acceptance letter. Uncle Song said he would send me to the police academy. 2012-8-2.]
Then, he opened the third email—
[I’ve graduated. I’ll be returning to Binjiang City for an internship soon. What about you? You’ve already started working, right? 2016-6-12.]
Then came the fourth email—
[Today, I was transferred from the district to the Municipal Public Security Bureau and officially became a police officer in the Public Security Department’s Forbidden Drug Administration. Here, there are cute senior brothers, loving Uncle Song, talkative Brother Yang, clearly very cold but called Brother Miao, and many loving colleagues. Binjiang City’s drug trafficking situation is worse than I thought. We can see young children who were caught taking drugs every day, and even pregnant women taking drugs and dealing drugs.]
[I really feel sorry for them.]
[As long as one is alive, one cannot do nothing. One has to do something. I think choosing this profession is the best thing I have done.]
[I guess you’re probably married. You’re almost 29.]
[Speaking of which, I’m quite envious of the person who can marry you. Really, she’s very happy to be able to marry such a good person like you.]
[After so many years, I don’t think I like you anymore, but I haven’t fallen for anyone else either. I keep feeling that it’s awkward for me to fall for someone other than you.]
[Binjiang City is really big. I’ve lived here for so many years, but we’ve never met.]
[Which hospital do you work in? The City People’s Hospital? Or the Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital? Or the Deep Sea Private Hospital? I really want to see you. You might look even better than in the photo. Of course, if you always sit in the office, you might become fat. I don’t like fat people.]
[However, if it’s you, I’m willing to help you lose weight…]
[I just suddenly thought of you.]
[But I know you might never go back to the game again. 6-2 2019.]
Wei Shuyi opened the first email. This time, the email was very short and only had two sentences—
[I met you. You look better than in the photo. 2019-12]
When Beauty Wu was 26 years old, she finally met Wei Shuyi.
At this moment, they had known each other for more than eleven years.
That night at the bar, Beauty Wu saw Wei Shuyi in the crowd of nearly 200 people. His features were clear and gentle, and he was wearing a white windbreaker. As he stood in the crowd, his restrained temperament was outstanding. Beauty Wu looked at him from afar and was surprised to recognize him as Wei Shuyi.
The person she thought she would never meet actually appeared.
She approached him and called him brother with a smile.
He thought that she was teasing him, but little did he know that Beauty Wu had already practiced calling him brother hundreds of times at the other end of the computer.
Wei Shuyi gave her a piece of chalk. She was stunned for a moment before telling him that she loved to see him draw her. He thought that she was acting, but he did not know that she was telling the truth.
They met briefly and soon separated. She drew a heart on a pole by the road with chalk. It was her heart.
It was great.
[I met you, even though you didn’t know me.]
[I met you. You look better than in the picture.]
Seeing this, Wei Shuyi couldn’t help but recall the time he met Beauty Wu at the bar three years ago.
At that time, when she called him brother, it was pleasant and sweet. Just hearing it made him weak.
So it was really Beauty Wu!
