Chapter 61: Balls-Hurting Question Marks

Right after Ning Shu hit yes, she felt the world spin around her, then fell with a thud to the ground. She felt so dizzy that she was about to puke.

She got up from the ground and glanced around. The surroundings were completely white. She had returned to the system space. Ning Shu gave a long sigh.

Following that, she looked down and saw that her soul had actually become a bit dimmer. She hastily sat down and started absorbing the matter in this space. Although she didn’t what those things were, there was no reason to reject it when it could strengthen her soul.

“Congratulations, Player, for making it back to the space.” The system’s cold, mechanical voice rang out in the system space. Ning Shu immediately stood up and asked, “Why did my soul become so dim? Could it be that completing tasks actually drains energy from the soul?”

“The only reason Player was influenced by the original host’s emotions was because Player’s soul is overly weak,” explained the system emotionlessly.

“Then is there a way to strengthen the soul?” asked Ning Shu. She had a feeling that traveling between worlds like this drained the soul a lot. If she didn’t have a strong soul, her soul would be used up sooner or later.

“There are medicine for strengthening the soul in the marketplace. There are also secret manuals with cultivation methods to strengthen one’s soul. However, you currently do not have the qualifications to open the marketplace or the exchange system.” The system’s explanation had given Ning Shu hope until she heard the part about not having the qualifications. It felt like another bucket of cold water had been poured over her head.

“Player will only have the qualifications to open the exchange system once Player officially becomes a player.”

Fine. Currently she didn’t even count as an intern. She was probably the smallest of the small cannon fodders, doomed to disappear forever if she died in the middle of a task.

“Examine stats? Yes/No.”

“Yes.”

The stats panel immediately appeared in front of Ning Shu.

Number: 23333

Name: Ning Shu

Age: 27

Experience: 4000 (4000/10000)

Soul: 60

Life: 50

Intelligence: 80

Charm: (?????)

Luck: 20

Mental Strength: 120

Martial Arts: 10

Aptitude: 20

Abilities: Five Rings Shooting Skill, Trashy Combat Skill

Acquired Titles: None

Ning Shu examined each attribute carefully. She was pleasantly surprised to find that she actually got four thousand points this time. It was probably due to the fact that she had been sent to a mid-level world and managed to complete the task after running into a stroke of good luck.

As expected, things with high risk were accompanied by high interest returns.

“Player has been rewarded with ten attribute points.” The system’s voice rang out again. “Due to the fact that Player’s first task was a mid-level world and the fact that the tasks were satisfactorily completed, ten bonus attribute points have been given.”

Ning Shu thought about it, then added one attribute point to charm. Having her charm level simply be several question marks seriously made her balls hurt. When she thought about her even more pitiful luck level, she added five attribute points to that without hesitation, then added four points to aptitude.

Following that, Ning Shu’s stats panel changed.

Number: 23333

Name: Ning Shu

Age: 27

Experience: 4000 (4000/10000)

Soul: 60

Life: 50

Intelligence: 80

Charm: 1

Luck: 20 (+5)

Mental Strength: 120

Martial Arts: 10

Aptitude: 20 (+4)

Abilities: Five Rings Shooting Skill, Trashy Combat Skill

Acquired Titles: None

Ning Shu saw that her charm level was finally no longer question marks. Though it was a lonely one point, at least they weren’t questions marks anymore.

“Would you like to enter the task world now?” asked the system.

Ning Shu considered it, then asked, “Can I enter it a little later?”

“You can.” Then the system fell silent.

#comment: I purposefully didn’t add this in the beginning since I felt like there was already a lot of information to absorb, but a reader remarked a while ago that another system novel had the same number and I felt like this would be a good place to add it before I forget. 2333 in Chinese represents laughter. The more wildly you want to show you’re laughing, the more 3s you would add on. It’s like LMAO vs LMAOOOOO. Ning Shu gets made fun of for it a couple arcs later. Btw, I’m still not sure if Ning Shu’s number is 2333 or 23333 because the author types both. I’ll edit all previous mentions to one or the other once I’m relatively sure but for now, I’m just going w/ what the raws use. +++I have added a ‘record’ page with simple arc info (arc info is only updated after the arc is completed) which can be accessed from the project page.
