After Transmigration, The Male Lead and I had a HE - Chapter 279
Side Story 3 (1)
Misfortune never comes alone. At this moment, Su Qiuge in the mid lane wasn’t doing well either. She was killed under a tower by an assassin who jumped over it.
Just as she died, a girl from the couple sent a voice message saying, “Well done!” It sounded particularly harsh.
Then, the guy from the couple turned his focus on Su Qiuge and typed a few sentences in the chat area:
“Can you be any worse as a mid lane mage? Can’t you even survive under your own turret? You didn’t even provide any support.”
“If you can’t play, then don’t play. Why do you have to ruin it for others?”
Su Qiuge didn’t argue back because she truly didn’t know how to play well. The only support she was good at, Yao, was taken by his girlfriend.
Little did she know that Xie Xinglin, who was sitting next to her, directly activated the in-game voice chat button. He looked down at the screen, his expression turning cold as he said, “Shut up.”
Almost immediately after he said “Shut up,” the guy finally fell silent and didn’t speak again. Han Ming was playing on the opposite side, as the top laner, and they were basically just farming minions without engaging in any major fights.
At that moment, Xie Xinglin finished clearing the jungle monsters and said to Su Qiuge in the mid lane, “Come, I’ll take you to get some kills.” She obediently followed.
Coincidentally, a team fight erupted in the top lane. The ADC and support were in the bot lane, which was quite disadvantageous for them. It was a three versus four situation.
Xie Xinglin lowered his eyes to the screen, and his slender fingers swiftly danced across the keyboard. Before Su Qiuge could even see clearly, she heard the announcement of his double kill in the game. The enemy jungler and support instantly had their health bars drained under the cool flashing of blades.
Of course, after that, Han Ming chased after the low-health Su Yuanzhou. After Su Yuanzhou was dealt with by Han Ming, Han Ming was left with only a sliver of health by Xie Xinglin. Xie Xinglin said to Su Qiuge, “Go secure the kill.”
Feeling a bit flustered while looking at the screen, Su Qiuge even missed a few of her skills. Seeing her clumsiness, Xie Xinglin smiled helplessly and patiently told her, “Just attack him with basic attacks when you get close.”
Su Qiuge nodded and proceeded to auto-attack Han Ming once. As expected, her own kill announcement appeared on the screen. She realized that she unexpectedly felt a sense of accomplishment after getting the kill, even though it wasn’t her own doing.
With a smile on her face, she approached him with her phone in hand and said, “I finally got a kill too.”
Xie Xinglin glanced at her with his eyes lowered, revealing a smile. He said, “From now on, just follow behind me and attack with basic attacks or use your skills randomly. The kills are all yours.”
At this moment, the two heroes standing together triggered a couple voice lines that were related to their relationship.
—”There is a beauty whom I can’t forget; a day without seeing her, I yearn for her madly.”
This was the yearning of a romantic swordsman for his beloved.
-“To have you as my heart’s companion, never to be apart even in old age.”
This is the promise made by the beauty to the swordsman.
-“Encountering you is the destiny of this life and the next.”
This is their harmonious response.
Han Ming and Su Yuanzhou, lying together side by side after their deaths, exchanged a silent glance, understanding the deep resentment in each other’s eyes.
Not only did they die, but they also had to endure a display of affectionate acts right on the spot.
What on earth is this?
Please, can they just be normal people!!
Later in the game, Xie Xinglin became even more dominant, scoring triple kills, quadruple kills, and even pentakills were a common occurrence. However, every time the White-Clad Swordsman descended with a grand flourish of blades, it was his beloved behind him who struck the fatal blow, dressing them in the shroud of death.
Meanwhile, Su Yuanzhou silently witnessed all of this as a sacrificial top laner warrior, always the first to fall. He couldn’t help but feel annoyed. Unable to vent his frustration, he suddenly caught sight of a certain couple who always ran away during team fights but became exceptionally active when there was an opportunity to secure a kill on low-health enemies.
So, he couldn’t help but say, “Do some people really think they can say whatever they want without taking responsibility for their actions?”
The guy in the couple felt embarrassed upon hearing this. Xie Xinglin was performing so well that there was no room for criticism, and although Su Qiuge wasn’t skilled, following Xie Xinglin allowed her to secure kills, resulting in good performance and statistics. However, he and his girlfriend ended up at the bottom of the scoreboard in terms of damage dealt and performance.
The couple felt their pride wounded and had nothing to say in response. They could only follow behind dejectedly during team fights. Even when Su Yuanzhou provocatively challenged them multiple times, they had no power to refute him.
In the end, Su Qiuge realized that simply randomly casting her skills earned her over a dozen kills. When the game ended, Han Ming sighed and looked at Xie Xinglin, saying, “Xing Ge, you don’t see us as humans, just killing indiscriminately.”
