Fangirling Chinese Novels

You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 5


Anyone misses Yu Tu? This is Zhuge Liang’s new skin for Valentine’s Day so I suspect Jing Jing bought this skin for Tu Tu which is why he was reluctant to accept it 🙂

Chapter 5 (translated by peanuts and edited by hoju)

Because there were only the two of them, they were casually matched with three random strangers. Qiao Jing Jing pondered for a bit and then once again chose Sun Bin.

In comparison with Cai Wenji, this hero, Sun Bin, is a little more difficult to manage, as more knowledge is needed, especially on the position and timing of the release of an ultimate silence ability. The first half of the game was still okay. Yu Tu was still the solo mid Zhuge Liang, supporting the top and bottom lanes from time to time. Their side was dominating. When it came to the team battle, though, Qiao Jing Jing could not keep up. After the marksman died twice, the criticism began.

End of the World (Lady Sun – Sun Shangxiang – marksman): Sun Bin, are you a dummie you ****?

Lady Sun

Foul language was censored by the system.

Qiao Jing Jing was shocked and was going to scold back. Before she finished typing the three words, “You’re the dummie”, however, she saw Yu Tu’s response in the chatbox.

Jade Rabbit Pounds Medicine (Zhuge Liang): If you continue to be wordy, we’ll leave the game together.

End of the World (Sun Shangxiang): You two are together? Fine, then. The two of you are like positive and negative that cancel each other out.

Qiao Jing Jing: ……

Wasn’t this marksman a little spineless?

After a while, the marksman could not hold himself back and talked again.

End of the World (Sun Shangxiang): Since you’re taking the girl along, why don’t you be the marksman and look after her yourself?

Yu Tu continued to ignore him.

They still won this match. At the beginning of the next match, Yu Tu switched his selection to marksman.

Qiao Jing Jing stared blankly at the screen at Jade Rabbit Pounds Medicine, who, in only a single second, had chosen Sun Shangxiang and then locked the choice in.

What should she do?

Her heart … actually felt a little sweet?

…… Qiao Jing Jing gently patted her face.

Keep calm, keep calm. As a big star with tens of millions of fans on Weibo, one who had declined dozens of gifts worth several millions without even batting an eyelid, people took over as a marksman to lead her, how embarrassing it was that her heart was starting to feel floaty just because some guy was purposely using a marksman so that he could lead her.

On the one hand, Qiao Jing Jing was still despising herself, but on the other hand, she quickly chose Sun Bin and then followed after Yu Tu, fearing that others would grab her support position.

Afterwards, they played a few more matches, and every time, Yu Tu chose to be marksman. No matter how badly she played, in the end, they still won, and Yu Tu was the MVP (Most Valuable Player) in every match. When she went to bed at night, Qiao Jing Jing tossed and turned restlessly in bed while rubbing her sore fingers.

Hey, Qiao Jing Jing, what is wrong with you?

You’re almost thirty years old. Just from seeing someone play the game so well, you’re so … so full of admiration?

He may already be bald, or maybe really fat and out of shape…..

What are you all excited about here, huh?

… But his game playing is so cool, ah.

Qiao Jing Jing was unable to sleep.

All kinds of images of Jade Rabbit Pounds Medicine’s figure criss-crossing the canyon were still flashing in her mind. Qiao Jing Jing suddenly sprang up in bed, took out the phone from under the blanket, and started to watch the few matches she had recorded.

Qiao Jing Jing kept silently reciting, “I’m doing this for learning purposes” while tapping on the video to view it from Yu Tu’s angle. And then, she watched that figure in the canyon dashing and flying around the entire arena, flaunting his skill to the enemy and basically rubbing it in not just one face, but two faces, three faces, four faces.

After falling asleep, her hand was still holding her mobile phone with its illuminated screen, the sound of “penta kill” (killing all 5 enemies in one battle) coming out from it.

During the following few days, Qiao Jing Jing lived happily every day. There was no need to rush to complete the job list of the day, no drama to shoot, and all quiet regarding talk about her on the media and social front. During the day, she would play game with A Guo and then at night she would cling to Yu Tu and friends’ thighs (means ride someone’s coattails). Only occasionally would she have to film an advertisement or attend an event.

No doubt, she preferred to play with Yu Tu and friends because after all, they won more matches  ╮ (╯ ▽ ╰) ╭

A Guo was also very enthusiastic now. Although his student, Qiao Jing Jing’s, skill in video games was average, she had self-confidence. No matter how many setbacks and or defeats she suffered each day, so long as she returned home to rest for a night, the next day, she was able to continue playing, filled with energy and confidence. Otherwise, how could she demonstrate that not everyone is cut out to be a celebrity? Just look at her tenacity!

But, why was she leaving to go home earlier and earlier?

<>Copyright of Fanatical, hui3r[dot]wordpress[dot]com. If you are not reading this from hui3r[dot]wordpress[dot]com, this translation was taken without consent of the translator.

Qiao Jing Jing also wanted to go home at five o’clock today. The reason she gave was so she could go home and work out to get firm, defined abs. In reality, it was because she had secretly logged in to her alternate account just now and discovered that Yu Tu and Slime Package were playing games, so she wanted to go back to play with them.

As to why she did not tell big sister Ling and others …

It would be way more fun if becoming an extraordinary gaming master suddenly happened overnight.

When she got home, Yu Tu had already gone offline.

Qiao Jing Jing unhappily sliced a plate of fruit as dinner. When she was eating them tastelessly, Pei Pei suddenly called her.

Her voice sounded a little excited.

“Jing Jing, someone reposted into our high school class group chat that post with the rumour. Guess what happened when everyone was scolding that rumormonger!”

Qiao Jing Jing was a little preoccupied: “What?”

Pei Pei: “Yu Tu came out to speak out!”

Qiao Jing Jing was shocked.

Pei Pei talked non-stop: “Oh, actually, besides scolding the rumormonger, there were also a few sour grapes. But in the end, once Yu Tu came out and spoke up, it was like they were immediately slapped in the face and they didn’t make a single peep anymore.”

Qiao Jing Jing composed herself: “Take a screenshot of what he said for me to see.”

Pei Pei very quickly sent a screenshot over.

Yu Tu: I did not say such a thing.

Yu Tu: If anyone is still in contact with Qiao Jing Jing, please say sorry on my behalf. If there is a need to explain further, I will cooperate.

Qiao Jing Jing stared at the picture and looked at it for a long time.

Apologize to her, what did he do wrong to require an apology? Also, “will cooperate to explain further”; how was he going to cooperate? Was she going to have to issue an announcement? He really had no understanding of the entertainment industry.

If he sincerely wanted to apologize, he might as well properly take her along to play games, not run to the group to chat.

Qiao Jing Jing read Yu Tu’s two sentences over twice, quickly finished eating the fruit, and then clicked to enter the game. She very generously sent two skins to Yu Tu.

The city was already completely shrouded in darkness.

Yu Tu closed his WeChat interface, feeling a little moody. He took one of Zhai Liang’s cigarettes from the coffee table and went out to the balcony.

In the midst of the faint tobacco smell, his mood gradually calm down.

“What? Being persuaded again?” Zhai Liang, holding a can of beer, walked to his side.

“No, something to do with my high school class group.” Yu Tu did not want to say more, so he hastily glossed over it.

“I thought your colleague came to persuade you to go back.”

Yu Tu flicked the ash off his cigarette, “On the contrary, there have been ex-colleagues who resigned who have made me determined to leave.”

“So, why are you still hesitating? Between an annual salary of one million and an annual salary of a hundred thousand plus working yourself to death, is it so difficult to choose?”

“Where’d you get annual salary of one million?” Yu Tu broke into laughter.

“Why not? If you had simply taken any one of all those offers you got when you graduated from undergrad, your annual salary would already have been several million if you’d kept working until now, right? You just had to be foolish and do postgraduate studies with some sort of focus in the aerospace direction. You work yourself to death and you still only take home ten to twenty grand. You solve a big, difficult problem and you still only get five grand. Don’t you feel you’re doing your IQ no justice? At least ….”

Zhai Liang drank a mouthful of beer, “At least, you and Xia Qing wouldn’t have broken up.”

Yu Tu looked indifferent, “Don’t mention the past.”

“In my opinion, you’ll regret it sooner or later.Where are you going to find such a smart and beautiful wife in the future?”

Yu Tu glanced at him. “It’ll be easier than you anyway.”

Zhai Liang said “Bah, you’re just relying on your face.”

After a while, Zhai Liang spoke again: “Ideals and feelings cannot be eaten as food. If you’re resolute, then leave la. You are already thirty years old, yet you still need me to say this. Isn’t it childish?”

“I promised my teacher I’d take a month to consider.”

Academics can actually make such sly schemes? I thought they were all old tech nerds.” Zhai Liang was a little shocked at this.

He shook the beer can: “My thinking and awareness are different from yours. I worked so hard to graduate, so I must earn the most money and live the best life. In today’s society, a celebrity can act in a movie or sing a song and then earn tens of millions. Having an affair and getting pregnant can also make headlines. You guys send rockets and satellites into space, but you go and ask, who knows your names? Who knows you only earn so little money a year?”

Yu Tu was quietly smoking.

“Would you say lately, these have been the most dispirited and wasted days of your life? You’re staying at home to play games every day. Actually, you can go to Beijing to roam around, visit old classmates, and so on. I heard that, Xia Qing is still single, so if you go now, maybe you can rekindle the relationship and so on.” While talking, he seemed to discover something, getting a little excited,” I say, you’ve stayed single for so many years, is your heart still …… ”

“No,” Yu Tu interrupted him.

Zhai Liang said, “Hey, I just don’t understand you.”

He drank the beer all at once, patted his shoulder and left Yu Tu alone.

After he finished smoking, Yu Tu went back to the living room, closed his eyes, and leaned on the couch. He recalled the teacher’s stunned and pained expression on the day he went to resign. His teacher finally said: “All these years, you must be very tired, not even taking a day off, so take all your vacation days first before we discuss further.”

“For the next month and little more, you think it over properly, and after that time, if you still want to leave, then I’ll approve.”

In fact, there was nothing to think over, since he had understood thoroughly all the different gains and losses long ago. All he needed was to make a decision, but he did not want to make it now.

He opened his eyes, picked up the phone, and clicked to enter into the game.

No one was online, Qiao Jing Jing was bored to death and played a man vs machine match. Of course, she could not select a support hero in a man vs machine match, so she selected Zhuge Liang, who was often played by Yu Tu. As a result, she was almost abused by the computer.

This hero was simply too hard to play … How did Yu Tu execute a lightning raid in the crowd?

After battling life and death with the computer for a while, Qiao Jing Jing ended the game by quitting this match. She looked at her friend list again. Yu Tu was already online.

He ought to have seen her gift?

As a reserved and proud female celebrity, Qiao Jing Jing was patiently waiting for Yu Tu to invite her to play game. However, after a while, there was still no action.

When Qiao Jing Jing thought her investment was spent in vain, a QQ dialog box popped up on the phone.

Yu Tu: No need to give me skin.

<>Copyright of Fanatical, hui3r[dot]wordpress[dot]com. If you are not reading this from hui3r[dot]wordpress[dot]com, this translation was taken without consent of the translator.

Qiao Jing Jing stared blankly for a while before clicking to open QQ. She did not expect Yu Tu would send her a message in QQ.

Yu Tu’s sentence was displayed in the dialog box at the upper left corner of the phone. Qiao Jing Jing stared at it, suddenly a little lost. It seemed like, a long, long time ago, when she was a teenager, every day she had also wished such a sentence initiated by him would appear in this dialog box.

She did not expect to realize this wish ten years later.

Things had changed; people had also changed. Qiao Jing Jing smiled and shook her head at this young girl’s thought. All of a sudden, she did not know what to reply.

She put down her mobile phone and ran on the treadmill for a while. Midway, she received a phone call from big sister Ling to inform her that her whole family would be having parents and children activities tomorrow. Hence, she did not need to go to the workshop for training.

After hanging up the phone, Qiao Jing Jing was still holding the phone. Out of nowhere, a bold idea suddenly appeared in Qiao Jing Jing’s mind.

Without taking much time to think through, she clicked open QQ and typed out the line: “Can I invite you to be my coach?”

  1. Uwaaaah this cliff is so high and scary!!

    Hahah ^^ thank you so much 💗❤️💖

  2. ahh the youthful palpitation seems to be gone…but that can easily be rekindled
    thank you!

  3. Yayy we got to see things from yu tu’s side

  4. ❤❤❤ thanks for translating! I am starting to become addicted despite still trying to understand this world of gaming…

  5. Thank you for the chapter 🙂.

  6. question, if Yu Tu message Jing Jing on QQ, does that mean he messaged her directly as her real self and not through the game/avatar? Thus he confirmed he knows who she is in the game?

    • No, he doesn’t know Jing Jing. Jing Jing added him in QQ many yrs ago with an alternate a/c with the nickname Hand Can Pick Cotton. He only accepted her as a QQ friend because she pretended to be an aerospace forum user but they’ve only exchanged a few words. The friend list in QQ will appear in the King of Glory game as they are kind of linked so he accidentally clicked on her name to invite her to play a game. Only when she used voice chat in the game, he discovered that she was in fact a girl. Jing Jing was afraid that he’ll recognise her voice but he didn’t.

      You’ve to read chapter 4 again 😛

      I’m So Panicked: “But you were dragged here by the insulator against girl, Yu Tu ah. Yu Tu, you really don’t know this girl?”

      Yu Tu: “… Mm-hmm.”

      I’m So Panicked: “Isn’t she on your QQ?”

      Yu Tu did not say anything.

      She was his classmate, so of course, she has his QQ number. But because of some weird thoughts at that time, she had specially registered an alternate account to add him. The result, though, was that she failed to add him twice, even with a beautiful woman (not her) avatar also did not work.

      Out of boredom, she searched his QQ number in Baidu, and unexpectedly found his number in an aerospace enthusiast forum. It suddenly dawned upon her to pretend to be an aerospace forum user and add him. Sure enough, it got through.

      However, after all, she did not know anything about that stuff, so after adding Yu Tu, they had only exchanged a word or two. This probably revealed her true color of knowing nothing, as Yu Tu did not reply her anymore.

      When Yu Tu was in high school, he was really a bit proud.

      Qiao Jing Jing feared that Yu Tu will remember, simply answered at once: “I must have randomly added him before.”

      • Ah, I was hoping it was a hint that he knew it was her when she added him. Even if she was pretending, she doesn’t seem that sly. It would also explain why he’s been so nice and patient with her in the game. But I guess he’s using it as an escape from his own life? She’s also very pitiable but lovely? One wants to protect
