You’re My Glory (你是我的荣耀) – Chapter 11

12 Comments

Why did all the ex-girlfriend and ex-boyfriend show up on the same day? From her conversation with Yu Tu, I don’t really like Xia Qing. I wonder why Yu Tu dated her but rejected Jing Jing. Even their names sound kind of similar lol.

Chapter 11 (translated by peanuts and edited by hoju)

After playing 1v1 for three full days, Yu Tu started to bring her to play 3v3 man and machine match, saying this was to practice small-scale team battles. Qiao Jing Jing discovered that she easily won these, so she could not help feeling a lot more confident.

And then they began actual battles in 3v3 mode, which immediately changed things into a difficult mode. It was not because she was very bad, but mainly because Yu Tu simply did not play like a team member! He always went by himself to the jungle to shoot birds, attack pigs, and slay the little monsters, leaving her and a pitiful random teammate to have to battle two on three. Only when she and the pitiful teammate finally couldn’t hold on would he come out to flaunt his skill.

The righteous reason he gave for this was to develop her ability to play under pressure

However, he was after all a god in all forms of studies, so Qiao Jing Jing still learned a lot of things. Not only would he explain the heroes’ often-used skills, while playing, Yu Tu would also tell her some details that she simply had not paid attention to before but which were actually very important; for example, last-hitting (killing the minions on your attacks to obtain an extra amount of gold by last hitting them), or for example, adjusting the equipment to be used according to the opponent…

When she used to play Wang Zhaojun, it was basically one set of equipment used in battle to the very end.

The afternoon sun was perfect, shining warmly into the living room. Qiao Jing Jing was nested on the sofa and earnestly playing a game.

It was also a 3v3 battle, and she was using Sun Shangxiang.

Her other teammate was already dead. Yu Tu’s Zhang Fei finally came over from the jungle and with a roar below the tower, blew away three people from the other team. Qiao Jing Jing was about to run over to beat someone when she heard Yu Tu’s phone ringing.

Qiao Jing Jing immediately went back to the base of the tower.

Every time there is a phone call, the game will slow down. Even if you hang up immediately, the characters in the game will still be frozen for a few seconds. When playing in team battles, getting hung up for a few seconds basically equates to death.

She gave up on her intention of pursuing and attacking. She inadvertently happened to glance at Yu Tu’s mobile phone and saw a familiar name flashing on the caller ID —— Xia Qing.

To her surprise, it was Xia Qing?

Before Qiao Jing Jing had time to think about anything, she saw Yu Tu quickly press the hang up button. Qiao Jing Jing was a bit surprised. “You’re not answering the phone?”

Yu Tu controlled Zhang Fei with an undisturbed expression. “After I finish playing.”<>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.

This match ended very fast. Yu Tu stood up. “I am going to make a call.”

He went to the balcony to make a call and then came back very quickly, saying to Qiao Jing Jing. “I am going out for a while.”

Qiao Jing Jing could not help being curious: “Xia Qing is also working in Shanghai?”

Yu Tu’s reply was somewhat thought-provoking: “Should be still in Beijing.”

Should be?

Qiao Jing Jing was pensive when she waved goodbye to him. Then she went and played her own game. When one match had ended, she put down her mobile phone, suddenly feeling a little anxious —— although it was “should be”, some things could not be said for sure. Would she be without a teacher from tomorrow onwards?

The meeting place suggested by Xia Qing was not far from Qiao Jing Jing’s home. Yu Tu was not late, but Xia Qing was already in the cafe when he arrived.

After he nodded his head in greeting, he sat down. Xia Qing said, “I ordered an Americano for you.”

“Thank you.” The waiter just happened to deliver the coffee. Yu Tu asked, “Are you here on a business trip?”

“Actually, my business trip is in Hangzhou.”

She did not elaborate. Yu Tu picked up the coffee cup and did not continue to ask her why she had come to Shanghai.

Xia Qing pulled the corners of her lips up. “How come you’re around on the Lujiazui (a new financial district in Shanghai, opposite the Bund) side?”

“Happened to have something to do here.”

“Oh, I thought you’ve an interview around here.”

Yu Tu’s hand which was holding the coffee cup paused slightly for a brief moment.

“I had a meal with Bao Bao in Hangzhou. He said that you are going to resign from the aerospace institution.” She looked attentively at Yu Tu. “Is it true?”

“Yes, I have such intention.”

“Why?” Xia Qing’s tone suddenly became more serious. “At that time, you did not hesitate to break up with me to go to this place. Why are you giving it up so easily now?”

Yu Tu remained silent.

Xia Qing smiled and leaned back on the sofa. “I actually hope you can continue on. Otherwise, it seems that I have no place in your heart. As it turns out, it’s not impossible for you to give it up; it’s just that I was not worth it.”

Yu Tu heaved a sigh. “Before we were together, you knew that I was preparing for taking graduate studies in aerospace.”

Xia Qing laughed at herself and said, “There’s that saying. How does it go? The most ridiculous delusion in the world is thinking that you can change a person.”

Yu Tu took a sip of coffee and changed the topic. “Are you still at QE?”

“I changed jobs a long time ago. Been promoted to MD recently. My salary has multiplied several times since graduation. It was really hard work, which also multiplied several times over.”

“You have always been outstanding.”

“But very tired. I often think, I am a woman. Why do I need to be so tired?” Xia Qing bowed her head and stirred the coffee. “What kind of job do you plan to look for? I heard that the headquarter of DF gave you an offer.”

The headquarter of DF was in Beijing.

Yu Tu paused before saying, “I’ve already declined the offer.”

Xia Qing’s tone was very calm: “Is that so?”

She took a few more sips of coffee, put down her cup, and looked at the time. “My flight is in two hours time. I should get going.”

The cafe was located in a shopping mall, so when they left, they had to walk through the crowded mall. Both of them walked silently in the crowd. Xia Qing suddenly halted her footsteps and looked at the huge poster hanging in the mall.

“Look, it is Qiao Jing Jing.”

Yu Tu lifted his head to look up at the huge poster hanging down from the third floor, with Qiao Jing Jing’s face pressed against a mobile phone  as she smiled at the crowd.

“Do you think, when she thinks about us now, she’ll think we’re all a joke? Even all the people who used to have the best grades in the class probably can’t compare to her at all now.”

Yu Tu moved his gaze from the poster. “No.”

Xia Qing was a little surprised because she thought Yu Tu would simply not answer. “You are very confident.”

After leaving the shopping mall, Yu Tu said, “I’ll walk you to the subway station.”

Xia Qing stared blankly for a moment, then shook her head with a smile and said, “Yu Tu, you still live in the past.”

She gathered her hair and said, “I haven’t taken the subway for several years. I still need to meet some people later after disembarking from the plane, so I’m not going to go cram in with everyone else.”

Yu Tu nodded, flagged down a taxi, and politely saw her into the car.

When he pulled open the car door, Xia Qing halted her footsteps again and turned around. “You clearly knew my purpose in coming?”

Yu Tu could only remained silent.

“In your eyes, there is only the sky above your head. Are feelings and such as tiny as dust and not worth mentioning at all?”

Yu Tu frowned slightly: “Why the need to mock me?”

Xia Qing gave a laugh. “I’m not mocking you. I’ve just come to a realization: Yu Tu, you shouldn’t let people waste their time on you.”

When Qiao Jing Jing opened the door and saw Yu Tu, she was startled. She had thought he was Xiao Zhu. “Why did you come back so fast?”

She looked at the decorative clock hanging in the living room. Not even an hour had passed. Did this mean things had progressed just too smoothly, or things went sour from the very first word and they went separate ways?

Yu Tu said: “Didn’t you say we don’t finish until 9 o’clock at night?”

She had only arbitrarily said that, but Yu Tu really did not leave until after 9 o’clock every day…

“I just randomly said that. If you’ve something to do…”

“Nothing. Let’s continue.” While saying that, Yu Tu took off his jacket, hung it up, and walked inside. Qiao Jing Jing followed after him, pondering. It seemed things had indeed soured and they had gone their separate ways.

The two sat back at their previous positions. Yu Tu told Qiao Jing Jing to use Bian Que (a physician in the Warring States known for his medical skill) to play a 3v3 casual match with some random players. He watched the game from the side. After playing a few games, he also let her try to use Mai Shiranui. When Qiao Jing Jing saw I’m So Panicked  online, she invited him into the room.

Bian Que

After entering the game, I’m So Panicked complained: “Why play 3v3 ah, boring?”

“Practicing small-scale team battles.”

“Very hardworking, but ~~” I’m So Panicked dragged out his syllables in an exaggerated manner. “Little Cotton, do you want to consider switching to have me as your teacher?”

Qiao Jing Jing was puzzled. “Why?”

I’m So Panicked: “Because your Rabbit God is going to be taken soon.”

Qiao Jing Jing: “…..”

She looked at Yu Tu.

I’m So Panicked started to gossip. “Recently, he has been leaving early and returning late. I’d been wondering what he is up to, until I heard from Slime Package today that there’s something going on. I cannot reveal the details. In short, you better follow me around in the future. He probably won’t have time to bring you along.”

You’ve already revealed too much…

Qiao Jing Jing’s beautiful eyes were twinkling, and with a sly grin, she answered, “Oh really? He’s already leaving early and returning late and not satisfied with who he has at home? …”

Slender fingers suddenly brushed across her hair as they switched off the speaker on her mobile phone screen and shut down the chat window. The atmosphere immediately became quiet.

Yu Tu’s deep and low voice was heard. “Concentrate.”

He withdrew his hand, there was still a faint feeling, like it was still there at the ends of her hair. Qiao Jing Jing suddenly felt that her one cheek was a little numb. Mai Shiranui, whom she was using to play right now, inexplicably decided to give up on attacking the low-HP enemy and ran to the jungle.

She moved her body to the side at once to prevent Yu Tu from seeing her haphazard playing. Fortunately, the doorbell rang at this moment so Qiao Jing Jing cleared her throat and said, “It is probably Xiao Zhu delivering dinner over.”

“I’ll get it.”

Yu Tu got up and went to open the door. When the door was opened, it was not Xiao Zhu who was standing outside, but an unknown man who was almost as tall as him.

That man was wearing a well-ironed suit, and a surprised look appeared on his handsome face. Then he glanced across Yu Tu and looked into the room. Yu Tu did not know his intention in coming, so he moved his body slightly to block the way.

3v3 is more fast-paced, so Qiao Jing Jing quickly ended this match, put down the mobile phone, and walked towards the door. “Xiao Zhu, the yogurt I asked you to bring…..”

Her voice cut off when she saw the man outside the door. At the same time, she was also surprised.

What was happening? Why was he here?

That man gave a glance over Qiao Jing Jing’s disheveled hair, casual homewear and bare feet in slippers. Finally, he nodded and said, “When I drove by, I saw the light on, so… Sorry to disturb you.”

Then he left gracefully.

Qiao Jing Jing: “…..”

Yu Tu looked at Qiao Jing Jing: “No need to explain to him?”

“Who bothers explaining to an ex-boyfriend whom she broke up with two years ago?” And moreover, one who was pretentious ~ But what day was it today? Ex-boyfriend and ex-girlfriend showing up on the same day. Was it International Nostalgia Day?

Xiao Zhu, who came late, dashed out of the elevator. “Jing Jing, Jing Jing, why did I see downstairs…uh, Teacher Yu.”

When she saw Yu Tu, she immediately stopped talking.

Qiao Jing jing was just about to look for her. “How did he manage to come up? Wasn’t his fingerprint for the elevator deleted?”

Xiao Zhu: “But you can still use the password to get up. Originally, the password was also changed, but you always forgot the new one so I had to  change it back.”

“You go to the property management office to change it again. Change it to 1316. Go now,” Qiao Jing Jing urged her.

“What is that?”

“My best record so far, 13-1-6.” While recalling this, Qiao Jing Jing was proud of herself. “You can rest assured that I’ll definitely not forget it.”

<>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.

Xiao Zhu was hurried out to go change the password. Qiao Jing Jing and Yu Tu were sitting face to face on the floor in front of the floor-to-ceiling window and eating dinner. As usual, Yu Tu’s three dishes and one soup were full of calories. As for Qiao Jing Jing, they were those foods that made life not worth living for: fruit, vegetable and egg white. The contrast between the two meals was so sad; she definitely needed to chat about something to increase the nutrition of hers.

Qiao Jing Jing felt that she and Yu Tu were both rather embarrassed today, so two embarrassments cancelled each other out and no one needed to feel embarrassed. Anyway, since Yu Tu had seen everything, Qiao Jing Jing couldn’t help but complain.

“We  dated for more than half a year. One day he suddenly told me that his family members are quite conservative and may not like my occupation. He wanted me to leave the entertainment industry first, then he would go and tell his family members.”

“Then I said, ‘My family also don’t like those in business, because they feel that it is too risky and you can go bankrupt easily. How about you resign first? Otherwise my family will also not agree to our relationship.’”

Yu Tu smiled, “Mr. Su is actually very talented and has a very good reputation.”

Qiao Jing Jing was a little surprised. “You know him?”

“I studied finance in university, so I’ll still pay attention to news in this field.”

“Oh ~~~ Then you surely did not know that he is also very narcissistic.” It had been two years, after all, and Qiao Jing Jing was no longer angry, but she still was a little extra forceful when cutting the fruit, “What about you?”

“What?”

“Why did you and Xia Qing break up?”

Yu Tu looked up at her. Qiao Jing Jing’s eyes were full of curiosity.

“I heard from Pei Pei that both of you started to date in the third year of university. Oh, Pei Pei often gossips about the classmates with me.” Qiao Jing Jing betrayed her best friend without the slightest hesitation. “If it’s inconvenient to tell me, then treat it as I didn’t ask.”

She playfully pressed the chopsticks over her lips.

Actually, there really was nothing that could not be spoken about. In fact, the reason was fairly similar to hers. When he graduated from undergrad, he had several high-paying job offers. However, he had still wanted to go study in that dream field of his that had been vetoed by his parents. He and Xia Qing had started dating when they were in their third year of university. At that time, he had already been in the midst of preparing for the postgraduate study exam. He thought that she had already accepted this. She thought that he could change. But in the end, no one changed anyone.

“Due to work, after graduation, I left Beijing and chose to do postgraduate studies in aerospace.” Yu Tu put it simply.

So it was because they were living in different places. Qiao Jing Jing turned her curiosity to other matters. “Actually, I was very surprised that you applied for finance in the college entrance examination application. I’ve always remembered that your dream is the stars and the sea. How come you suddenly went to study finance?”

Something shifted in Yu Tu’s eyes. He was a little surprised about how she knew this. But then he remembered something, and a trace of a bizarre understanding crossed his heart.

“When I was filling in the application form, my parents did not agree to my ambition. But I felt that I could handle both. Back then, I was rather young and frivolous .”

“But you really managed it. Later, you even did your postgraduate study. Indeed, the godly student of our class.” Qiao Jing Jing became exhilarated: “Then how did you get such a long vacation? Shouldn’t you be very busy doing scientific research?”

“Because,” Yu Tu paused before saying, “I’m going to give up the ​stars and the sea.”
