Feng Xiao Lan
“Xiao Lan! Hurry up with breakfast! I’m hungry!” shouted my obnoxious brother from the dining table.
“Shut up! Say one more word and you get nothing to eat!” I shouted back. I finished the scrambled eggs and went to the table and dumped it in front of my grumbling twin, Yang Ming.
After eating breakfast, we hopped on the bus and made our way to the university. As I took my seat at the back of the class, I marvelled once again at how this sophisticated, mature, and most astonishingly of all, smart, professor of mine could possibly be the same Guileastos who, in-game, was the complete opposite. Anyways, class continued peacefully until, a bit before lunch, I felt a piercing pain in my midsection. It felt as if a thousand needles were poking my stomach and I must have let my pain show on my face because the professor suddenly said, “Feng Lan, is there something wrong?”
I stood up, wincing in pain, and asked, “I’m sorry, professor, but, may I go to the nurses office?”
Looking worried, he said, “Yes, of course.”
Wincing all the way, I slowly made my way to the nurses office. When I got there, the schools physician, who was also Wolf-dage from second life, looked at me and asked kindly, “Is there something wrong, student?”
“I’m having cramps.”
He looked at me sceptically, as I had used the same excuse the first time and I said, “It’s true!” When, once again, I winced in pain, he finally believed me and went to bring me a hot pack.
“Thank you, Wolf-dage,” I said in relief.
He looked at me strangely, then said, “No problem, Prince. So, why weren’t you on last night?”
“Oh, that’s because….” I trailed off, freezing in panic. I looked up at him and he had a triumphant look on his face. “H-how did you find out?”
“Haha, it wasn’t all that hard. You act the same way in real life as you do in-game, and, like I said before, only Prince calls me Wolf-dage.”
I looked at him with pleading eyes, “Please don’t tell anyone, Wolf-dage!”
Laughing, he said, “Okay, okay. So, how did this all happen?”
“Well…” I started to explain about the deal with my brother, and then meeting Lolidragon, and how I couldn’t tell anyone who I was because of all the enemies I had made.
“I see,” he said. “So, how many people know?”
“Only Wicked, mom, dad, Lu Jing, and Yun Fei.”
He looked amused. “So Yang Ming still hasn’t figured it out?” he asked.
“Of course not! I mean, even if we are twins, he’s too stupid to recognize me.”
I looked at him, relieved. Wolf-dage really was a brotherly figure, just like in the game. “Hey, dage?” I asked.
He looked at me, “Hm?”
“Well, I was wondering if I could hang out with you and Gui sometime?”
He looked confused and said, “Sure, but why?”
“Well, I was just wondering which one was real, Guileastos the bard or Min Gui Wen the professor.”
“I see, well, I have no problem with it, it sounds pretty fun. Would you like to bring your friends too?”
“That’s a great idea! Anyways, I’ll see you tomorrow at 10 in front of the shopping mall on XX street?’
“Great, see you then!”
Min Gui Wen
I had just finished marking the papers when Tian Lang came in. I smiled and said, “Hey! What’s up, Wolf?”
“Tomorrow, you and I are going to hang out with Feng Lan, Lu Jing, and Yun Fei.”
I looked up, confused. “Wait, why? I don’t think I agreed to this!”
“Well, you didn’t, but I did, and it would be rude to turn them down now.”
“But why? They’re only my students! Why would they want to hang out with us?”
“Because Feng Lan is a friend of mine and this is a favour for her.”
“Really? You and Feng Lan are friend? What about Yu Lian?” This earned me a hit on the head. “Ow! What the hell was that for!” I shouted.
“It’s not like that. She’s more like a little sister!”
“Okay, fine! So, where do we have to meet them?”
“Tomorrow morning, 10 o’clock in front of the shopping mall on XX street.”
“See you then.”
