Chapter 57: Plug-in Stopped Working
“Bai Yi I need to clarify something.” Yao Si couldn’t just let him
continue misunderstanding; she had to set things straight!
“What is it? Can’t we talk about it later?”
“No!” I know all about your inner wretched thoughts! “Listen!
First, I don’t harbor any improper thoughts toward Gu Shucheng and see
him solely as a younger nephew. Second, I’m a bloodling just like you.
“You are a bloodling?!” Bai Yi sized her up. “If you’re a
bloodling, why did you enter the academy’s elementary branch?”
“Er…” Yao Si froze. Why did you have to mention that? “That… is
complicated, you can see it as me wanting to experience life.”
“Why didn’t we receive any notification about a bloodling entering
“Since it’s a… life experience, I deliberately concealed my
identity.” Yao Si instantly tossed away the exam result slip which had
floated into mind before continuing to explain seriously. “Gu
Shucheng’s preferential treatment is solely due to my higher rank. He
is doing it out of respect.”
“Stop joking around!” Bai Yi wasn’t the least bit convinced.
“There are other bloodlings with higher rank than him in the academy,
but he doesn’t revolve around them every day.” He is practically a
nanny for you.
“That’s because my rank is a little higher.”
“Which generation are you from?”
Yao Si raised a palm with her fingers splayed out. “Fifth generation!”
Bai Yi was taken aback at first, then his mouth started to twitch. He
probed, “Is your guider perhaps…”
“Mu Xuan!” Yao Si replied decisively. “That’s why he came on the
Bai Yi sank into silence, sizing her up once more before saying in a
daze, “Oh… Oh! I see.” He didn’t think the response was enough,
so he nodded firmly, a sharp glint flashing through his gaze as he added,
“I understand, I won’t misunderstand anymore. But let’s get
Shucheng out first.”
Yao Si heaved a sigh of relief, but the moment she glanced up, she froze,
anger choking her throat.
What do you mean by understand?!
The words above him were:
[Bai Yi is very confused. He hadn’t known that love could blind someone
to the point that they could abandon their race. The girl in front of him
had to be crazy from love, even picturing herself as the cub of the
bloodling ruler, His Majesty. Ah~ What an insane choice. Ah~ What a
devastating love. Ah~ What deep love. Ah~]
“Stop with your ahs!” You’re the crazy one, your entire family is
crazy! “I’m really a bloodling.”
“I understand, I understand!”
What do you understand, listen to me!
“Someone’s here!” Bai Yi’s face tightened, and he pulled her into
A row of people came soon after, but they weren’t like the scattered
guards. The group of consisted of about seven people, all dressed in the
standard white coats with black cases in their hands. Their gaze were
focused ahead as they entered the ship which seemed about to leave.
“We need to find Shucheng soon.” Bai Yi’s expression grew serious.
Yao Si inhaled deeply, suppressing the curses within her. She pointed in
the direction from which the group had come. “The door is there.” She
held onto the card tightly, swiping it accurately against the security
After a bend, they were in a completely different place. The entire area
was a sea of white, with white walls and walkways while weak lighting set
a grim and bleak atmosphere. There also was a sour stench in the air.
“What’s that smell?” Bloodlings had sharp senses, and Yao Si was
forced to pinch her nose tight.
“It’s medicine.” Bai Yi frowned. “Is the ventilation here that
bad?” He glanced around, pushing up his sleeves. “This building is
rather complex; they may have specifically designed it to mimic a maze.
Any wrong move and we will end up in a dead end, triggering an alarm.
There’s some people over there, so I’ll use my ability just in
“Eh?” Bai Yi stilled. To the right, there was another corridor
branch. “Why do you say that?”
“Hehe…” Yao Si’s mouth curled slightly. I glanced above the
[Guard A has been standing at his post for a day. He wishes to sit and
rest for a while, but what he doesn’t know is that the guards stationed
in the three walkways to the right on the second level are all seated
With such clear directions, it would be hard for her not to know, right?
“I told you I’m a bloodling! It’s normal for me to have special
Bai Yi frowned, going forth without probing her more.
Five minutes later.
“It’s another cross road, let me read—”
[The guard thought of his parents at home, but he wasn’t aware that on
the second floor, after taking a left turn and passing two doors, there
were guards who could visit their parents during their time off.]
On the left turn, the coast was clear.
After ten minutes.
“The passcode here…”
[Employee B is an avid fan of lottery. He buys a ticket every day, but he
doesn’t know that the passcode for the door, 08715, is also the winning
number for today’s Galactic lottery.]
Ding! Access granted!
After fifteen minutes.
“The electrical trap here…”
“There’s a switch on the left wall at about 1.9m height.”
[Dashing and tall employee D prides himself for being 1.88m tall, but he
doesn’t know that the company’s corridor closure button is at 1.9m;
he’d need heels to reach that height.]
Ding! The trap is disarmed, access granted!
“I’m partially convinced you are a bloodling.”
“Oh.” I’m anyways.
“Can I ask you something?”
“What is it?”
“Is your ability called… plug-in?”
At that time, Yao Si’s passive ability was more reliable than ever
before. It was akin to having an all-rounded navigator. In the beginning,
they had to be careful around the guards, but soon, she was met with the
words: [Invaders would never know that the exclusive licence card from
the equipment room would ensure that they would not be caught]. After
that, they abandoned all secrecy, going forth without obstruction. It was
as though they had entered an undercover mode which allowed them to reach
the fourth floor with ease.
The entire process was so smooth that they lost the fundamental anxiety
of being in the enemy’s lair.
Until… they encountered a door which was tightly shut.
“President, how do we open this door?” Bai Yi glanced at her with
bright eyes, expecting her to provide him with a solution. Ever since his
comrade had activated her plug-in, he had completely given up on using
his own brain.
Yao Si glanced at their empty surroundings. There wasn’t a person in
sight, only a door so bright she could see her own reflection, and even
the words above her head.
[Now that Yao Si met with another problem, she was reminded about the
amazing ability of Master of Subtitles. She wanted her ability to tell
her how to open the door, but what she didn’t know was that even Lord
of Subtitles couldn’t figure it out.]
“What’s wrong? Is the door hard to open?” Bai Yi couldn’t help
rushing her after seeing her lack of progress.
“Would you believe it if I said that… the plug-in stopped working?”
