You’re Beautiful When You Smile

Chapter 25 Part 4



The team held a meeting after the skirmish as usual to analyze the statistics.
After the meeting, her teammates either went to rest or played ranked games,
or streamed…...Tong Yao went back to her seat, logging onto new game as
usual. It seemed as if everything had gone back to normal.



Until dinner time.



Then late night snack time.



Then the wee hours of the morning, Little Fatty got up, yawned, and muttered,
“Go sleep, go sleep”......



Lu Sicheng used his own computer to check on Tong Yao’s record. She had
played ranked since the afternoon till 3 in the morning, she didn’t take a break
or eat any food, except for a short moment to get coffee. She played all night
and lost all night. She had dropped from Challenger back to Master again.



“Hey, bishoujo, aren’t you going to sleep?” Lu Sicheng knocked on her desk.
“It’s almost 4 in the morning.”



“After this match.” Tong Yao didn’t even turn her head. “I’ll go to sleep right
away.”



Lu Sicheng wanted to say something but didn’t know what to say since Tong
Yao seemed to be acting normally. He responded with an “oh”, then went back
to his room to sleep.



……



The next morning, Lu Sicheng woke up at 7 o’clock.



After his shower, he opened the door to go downstairs and get something to eat.
After opening the door, he could hear the clicking sounds of a mouse-- --He
paused for a while, raising his eyebrows high. It wasn’t a surprise to him that he
found the person who said she would go sleep right after finishing a match was
still sitting in front of the computer……



Lu Sicheng: “......”



He walked behind Tong Yao. Her computer screen showed that she was playing a
custom game, using Azir, the champion that she had suffered crushing defeat
yesterday-- --She had setup a game without any opponents-- --Usually, a player
would use this mode to practice killing minions.



The person sitting on the chair moved slightly and said, “Morning.” Maybe the
distraction made her miss one of the minions. She hissed and immediately quit
the game.  Then she set up the custom game mode again, continuing her endless
minion killing spree-- --



If she missed one, she would quit.



Setup the game again.



Missed one, quit again.



She acted like someone who had an obsessive-compulsive disorder.



“You haven’t slept all night?”



“I’ll go in a minute.”



“You’ve been practicing Azir all night?”



“Uhm? Yeah.”



Lu Sicheng stood behind her watching, with a cup of coffee in his hand. He looked
down and saw the person sitting in front of the computer stare at the computer
screen with a pair of numb and blood shot eyes……



He furrowed his eyebrows. When Tong Yao missed another minion and murmured,
“Cheng Ge, don’t talk to me, I missed one again,” a big hand stretched out from
behind and covered her eyes-- --



The moving mouse was just about to quit the match.



Lu Sicheng didn’t speak as he pushed her head backwards.  She began to struggle,
but soon, her body softened as if she had given up all resistance……It was just the
two of them, in silence, on the first floor of the whole base. It was so silent they could
hear each other’s breath-- --



The man’s hand was dry and warm, with the mixed scent of soap and coffee beans.



Several seconds later, Lu Sicheng felt something warm and wet on his palm.



Though he was taken aback, he didn’t remove his hand.  Soon, he could see a water
droplet fall from his hand……  The man paused a bit, the always cold eyes softened,
and with a low, gentle sigh broke the temporary silence-- --



“Didn’t you say you were alright?”



He moved his hand away, looked at the girl with messy hair and teary, bloodshot eyes,
who was looking up at him. Her tears flowed like a river. Lu Sicheng was surprised to
see that anyone could produce so many tears-- --



“I lied to you. I’m not good. It's not alright.” Her voice was coarse. “I know shit about
Azir. I’m just a shit number one Leblanc.”



Lu Sicheng: “......”



She sniffed, “My fragile heart has broken into pieces.”



Lu Sicheng: “En. I can tell.”



Tong Yao: “......”



Lu Sicheng: “Little liar.”


Tong Yao: “......”
