Get To Know Your Ex-Girlfriend - Chapter 2
Breaking Through The Cage : Hunting legally (Arc 1)
Hunting legally (Arc 1)
Originally on campus, four hundred students were inexplicably swept into the
inter-dimensional campus space while the rules appeared in their minds.
1. There are 400 people on campus, each with one clue.
2. Collect 50 clues to get the key to the door, note that the clues must match up, if you cannot connect the clues, they are invalid.
3. 400 people can form a team of less than or equal to 5 people and can change team members at any time.
4. One person will be killed each night and clues will be given to others according to their will.
5. The above rule is invalid if the prey dies during a legal hunt
6. Anyone who takes any action during the non-hunting period will be wiped out.
At first there was bewilderment, fear, screaming, and a frantic group of people running towards the door, but they couldn’t get to the school entrance.
At the same time, campus schedules appeared on everyone’s desks.
The teachers taught the class normally, and no matter how the students argued and got angry, they were narrating their class just the same. No matter how they questioned, they only had a smile, and it was obvious that they were familiar people, but they gave people a cold feeling in their backs.
Xin Lan learned from the original owner’s memory that today was her second day here.
Yesterday someone lost their temper in class and was punished by standing for a lesson.
It was not simply a punishment, but rather a being forced to lie in a coffin that
appeared out of thin air, as though glued to it, a black coffin. It was so terrifying
that no one dared to do anything else.
As yesterday was the first day, everyone was cautiously watching, just like the
rules said, a person had died.
Where his clue was, everyone had a guess in their mind but no one said anything.
With only 399 people left on campus, everybody’s mind is on the line.
Students who were once familiar have become strangers.
No one wants to die, yet only five or fewer will survive.
During a reasonable discussion time at this morning’s reading, everyone quickly hugged each other, after all, everyone felt that there was strength in numbers and that it was too much of a disadvantage to drop the order in this situation.
Xin Lan: That’s a bit interesting, if I kill 398 people by myself and wipe them out as a group, then aren’t the clues at my disposal?
After all, as the rules have warned, there are some invalid clues, and who can guarantee that all fifty clues they get will be linkable, so they must get more than fifty.
It was like a huge hunting ground and slaughterhouse, forcing people to kill each other.
Zero Nine: Host, calm down a little!!!!
Zero Nine: Do you remember what our mission was?
Xin Lan: Ex-boyfriend.
Zero Nine: Yes! Abuse him! We were tasked with abusing him and not getting out! Don’t forget that!
Zero Nine was really afraid that her host would run off the rails again, and although she seemed like she was joking, she really did believe that she could kill all of them quite so heartlessly.
Xin Lan starts to sort out the memories of the original owner and organize her social relations.
The original owner, also named Xin Lan, was a student in the third class of the second year of high school, a beautiful-looking student who deserved to be the class flower.
Her ex-boyfriend was a school bully in her class, handsome, a good fighter and an arrogant and untamed bad boy, but his grades were good, so she fell in love with him and spent a month talking to him.
The ex-boyfriend was just playing around and dumped her after a month.
The original owner was heartbroken and inquired, but all she got was words of disgust.
–How many people have already played with you, you’ve dumped many people, why are you pretending to be innocent?
–You’re just playing around.
Thus, the girlfriend becomes the ex-girlfriend.
Xin Lan: Send me the subsequent plot.
Zero Nine immediately sent the plot to Xin Lan, who saw a new woman in this follow-up, whom she called the school bully.
The school bully was the number one in the class and deserved the title of talented girl.
In a strange world like this, one must of course find smart people to team up with, so the ex-boyfriend approached the school bully.
The school bully takes into account the force of his ex-boyfriend, the School Bully, and makes an alliance with him to form a team and start a strong alliance.
The two continue to bond, to the point where they work together seamlessly, and School Bully begins to pursue love in a dangerous world.
The school bully is smart and attractive, and her ex-boyfriend has long been interested in her, but the school bully’s previous look of not being in love kept him from making a move. In this strange dimension, he fights to be protective and occasionally affectionate, and finally manages to catch up with the school bully.
It ends with the two leading a small team that collects enough clues to make it out of the school.
However, as for the original owner, a beautiful-looking war hero, she was raped before being killed to take the clue, and when she struggled, her ex-boyfriend was right next to her and saw it, walking by indifferently.
If Xin Lan saw the original owner dumped in front of her only mildly upset, it can only be said that she met someone unlucky, but seeing the end of the original owner is not a happy mood.
Xin Lan: The person who killed the original host will tell me when the time comes.
Zero Nine: Okay, also host, after that person killed the original owner, the scum grabbed that person again and took two clues at once oh! Excessive!
Xin Lan’s pen twirled between her fingers, her slightly messy hair hiding the eerie coldness on her face.
Zero Nine: Host! You mustn’t let him go too peacefully! I’ve got the strategy here, seducing 10,000 fans, Shura, it’s all there, whichever you want!
Xin Lan: Can I rob the school bully?
Zero Nine: What????
Xin Lan: Rob his woman.
Zero Nine: ????
The script wasn’t written like that, it doesn’t fit the set-up.
Xin Lan: It doesn’t work? Didn’t you say sadistic? Isn’t he after love? I’ll let him have no love.
Xin Lan: If I can’t, then I’ll insult him, abuse him, threaten him, imprison him, torture him ………
Zero Nine: Let’s discuss how to steal his woman.
Zero Nine shuddered, thinking of the scum who had been beaten into a wailing dog in the first mission in the room, thinking that the conventional strategy probably wouldn’t work for her host, so it was better to do it unconventionally.
Break the scum’s ex-boyfriend’s wings for love and make him regret it!
Theoretically, it was very good.
Xin Lan didn’t discuss it with Zero Nine, because the bell rang at the end of class.
The teacher walks out of the classroom very punctually, without a moment’s delay, with a sharpness that puts to shame teachers who love to drag out the lecture for another minute.
All sound stops, like a pantomime.
During non-discussion time, it is not allowed to speak about tactical matters or you will be ‘banned’.
This is the same lesson that someone left the crowd yesterday with themselves.
Someone walked out of the classroom first, and then everyone walked out in a sparse and not at all positive manner.
“Let’s go.” Someone tapped at Xin Lan’s desk, a boy with glasses.
This was the captain of the original owner’s group. The original owner had wanted to go to her ex-boyfriend, but was angry when he gave her a contemptuous look and came back.
With forty seats in a class, four hundred people are divided into ten different classes, and Xin Lan is not in the same class as her ex-boyfriend and the school bully.
This personnel was movable, but very few people formed teams across classes, unless they knew each other well or wanted to hug a big thigh.
Xin Lan nodded her head and followed the boys.
The team Xin Lan was in had not yet exchanged clues with each other, not knowing whether it was because they had not had enough time in the morning or whether they were on their own alert, but it was good news for Xin Lan.
If you had a clue, you could be prey at any time, but if you didn’t, you would have to wait for death.
“Why do I feel like you’re a little different.” The boy pushed his glasses up and said in a slightly thoughtful manner.
“It feels as though you’re suddenly much calmer.”
“It’s already like this, there is nothing you can do if you don’t calm down.” Xin Lan tugged at the corner of her mouth and gave a perfunctory smile.
The boys felt the same and didn’t ask any more questions.
People walking in twos and threes accompanied each other on the way to the cafeteria, most of them silent except for some who were talking.
Xin Lan’s hand was in the pocket of her school uniform, clutching the clue of the original owner in her hand.
At the very beginning, the original owner saw a note with the clue ‘under the first sink in the toilet on the third floor of the girls’ dormitory’, and the original owner followed what was written on it to get her clue.
A fragment of something that resembled a map.
Xin Lan loosened her clenched hand, her expression flat.
They were a team of five, and apart from Xin Lan, there was a shorter girl.
Xin Lan mentally numbered the memory, Cai Yang for the small glasses, Guo Ming for the acne, Chen Zhi Hong for the small dark man and Zhou Ming Fang for the short man.
The short man walked on the other side of Xiao Yan Jing, while Hei Xiao Zhuang and Qing Chun Dou walked behind him.
Seeing the small glasses Cai Yang, who had unknowingly gotten close again, Xin Lan took a stride and entered the canteen.
Being good looking can sometimes be an advantage, like this, where people automatically come to you, but Xin Lan likes to be the boss.
Xin Lan is rarely a loner. When she was a general, she had many subordinates under her, and when she was a villain, she had no shortage of minions and followers.
She was used to being the dominant one, and yet didn’t like being the boss of the unruly supporters who couldn’t listen.
The few people behind her each had their own ideas, and this makeshift team Xin Lan was not necessarily going to follow.
Now that she has an idea to fight her ex, how can she set up a team strong enough to fight her ex and scoop up the school bully again.
Xin Lan: Nine-nine, I’m going to split the team to poach people, what do you think of this plan?
Zero Nine: Why not just join the ex-boyfriend team, you can always be ready to stick your knife in, and pry the school bully, and piss off your ex-boyfriend, you are not his ex-girlfriend, just go and play well with his goddess, and when the time comes to say bad things about him at the school bully, isn’t that better!
Xin Lan: …… I think you are up to the task yourself.
Such a talent, it’s too condescending to be a system.
Xin Lan is somewhat accustomed to the idea that there are three kinds of villains that she does, one is the one who is with the protagonist and then betrays and inserts the knife because of certain things, one is the boss waiting to be swiped by the protagonist, and one is the one who has the opposite position to the protagonist and must be a mortal enemy, she doesn’t like the first one too much and thinks that instead of love and hate, it is better to have one hate to the end.
She can consider Zero Nine’s suggestion, but the optimal situation is that she still wants to kick her ex-boyfriend out of the way and abuse him to death as a rival.
Zero Nine: Low key, after all, I’m merely a deeply secretive unified.
True heroes never look back at explosions, and true systems never abuse scum themselves.
