After “donating” a lot of materials as per Asuna’s request, he knew what Asuna’s face meant.
Asuna is a beautiful girl who looked cool most of the time. But, Wu Yan is very sure that deep down inside, she’s a bottomless pit.
Now that she got a good look at the Ragout Rabbit, her inner attribute must have manifested itself after seeing an S-grade material dangling in front of her.
Wu Yan tried to hide the Ragout Rabbit behind him as he looked at her with a wary look. After the Ragout Rabbit disappeared from her vision, Asuna returned to her senses.
“Th-that, just now, that’s not…”
Her eyes shook as she voiced her disbelief.
“That super rare food material known as the Ragout Rabbit?”
Players started gossiping when they heard “S-grade food material”.
Wu Yan closed his eyes and he sighed after seeing Asuna’s excited expression.
“As expected of you, you identified it with a single glance…”
Asuna continued with admiration in her tone.
“You actually got your hands on an S-grade food material…”
“Luck, it was all luck…”
Wu Yan feigned modesty. Asuna who was familiar with him immediately recognized his blatant lie.
Asuna would have knocked Wu Yan down a few pegs for being so cheeky. However, she gave him a very friendly but creepy smile.
Wu Yan’s lip started twitching.
Asuna continued beaming at him.
Wu Yan’s lip dance intensifies.
Asuna’s grin had a more sinister undertone.
A drop of cold sweat flowed down the side of his head.
Asuna gave him a very sharp stare.
Wu Yan lost.
He shrugged and he forced a smile onto his moppy face. He suggested to her.
“Why don’t we…”
Without waiting for Wu Yan to finish, she agreed instantly. She wanted this outcome and she got it.
The members standing behind her finally caught on.
Asuna-sama wants to dine together with the Fae Swordsman.
Asuna’s radiant smile drew silent anger from the other members. To lower herself in front of S-grade food material, where is the legendary player known as the Demon of Floor Conquest?
Rare as the food material may be, KoB guild members treated Asuna-sama like a goddess. Surely, someone like that would not deign to covet material like that, right? It’s not like she’s lacking in terms of Cors.
Wait, is that meat so good?
Pfft, as if…
The KoBs didn’t know they hit the nail on its head…
A very unfriendly voice came from behind Asuna.
Asuna’s smile dimmed down when she heard the voice. Her face bordered on annoyance while Wu Yan raised an eyebrow at the culprit. Wu Yan almost laughed out loud when he saw the perpetrator.
It was the skeleton-faced fugly standing behind Asuna.
Wu Yan instantly identified him because of his unique look. This guy was in the original work as well, his name is Kuradeel.
This guy had a very twisted love for Asuna. He was the one who tried to kill Kirito in the original work.
This guy is a member of the famous Player Killing Guild, Laughing coffin. He is secretly someone who enjoyed the death and suffering of other players.
Wu Yan can more or less guess how this is all going to go down.
Asuna turned towards her with a very firm look on her face. She’s also not a big fan of being followed by a creep like Kuradeel.
“Is something the matter?”
Kuradeel glanced at Wu Yan who was grinning at him and he made his thoughts known.
“I think we should go now…”
Asuna recalled how she needed to take this team on a raid into the labyrinth.
Wu Yan blinked in surprise.
“You’re doing guild activities?”
Asuna nodded while Wu Yan chortled.
“That’s just too bad…”
He didn’t sound sad at all he sounded quite happy.
Asuna tilted her head with an intimidating smile.
“Just because I don’t have the time now doesn’t mean I don’t have the time to spare at night!”
She drew closer like a banshee from hell.
“Surely, a gentleman like you would wait for a rare guest to arrive before eating, right?”
A rare guest? You’re the one who came knocking on my door every few days to extort food material…
Wu Yan resisted the urge to object dramatically. He turned his head the other way and he huffed.
“Oh, sure! I am going to make sure you get your fill, don’t worry about that, Asuna-sama!”
“Thank you very much…”
Asuna giggled with a sneaky grin on her face. She patted him on the shoulder.
“I will be looking forward to the dinner, tonight…”
She walked away with her back towards Wu Yan. She waved her hands as she led the raid group into the labyrinth. The members stumbled along as they tried to stay in formation.
He felt someone looking at him and he looked back at the culprit. His smile turned frosty cold.
Kuradeel stopped leering at him and he went back to Asuna.
Wu Yan stretched his back. He sneered.
“Don’t mess with me, I am not as soft as Kirito and Asuna…”
“Asuna-sama, don’t go to a stranger’s house like that, it’s so dangerous!”
Kuradeel isn’t a saint. He’s also not stupid. He knows he stood no chance against Wu Yan in a fair duel. He held back his envy and anger when Wu Yan and Asuna were teasing each other. The moment he got away from Wu Yan, he started making trouble for him.
Being too famous isn’t good for a player. Asuna herself got into some accident because of malice or jealousy. This is the reason why KoBs gave her a bodyguard. Kuradeel is the acting bodyguard for Asuna.
Kuradeel always overstepped the boundaries by meddling with Asuna’s personal affair. He thought he’s a knight for some stately lady or something. Clearly, he’s planning to meddle in Asuna’s business once again.
Asuna got annoyed again but she hid it away.
Asuna stopped and she slowly turned around.
“He’s someone who beat the Captain fair and square, do you think a person like that would need to stoop to such a low level to get what he wants?”
Kuradeel protested again. He used the most persuasive tone he had.
“Don’t let his legendary player status outshine his status as a beater, he’s a selfish nasty beater who got where he is at the expense of others, don’t mingle with people like that!”
Asuna’s gaze sharpened.
How dare this guy diss Wu Yan…
She gave him another cold look and she ignored him.
Kuradeel’s eyes beamed up with hatred.
