Hello, How Long Has This Been Going On? - Chapter 21
Huo Ran, who didn’t play games often, was very reluctant at first, but after playing it for a bit, he really enjoyed it. In fact, he even became interested in the game industry because of this.
Huo Sihan was a koala in the game, Huo Ran thought that as siblings, they should be a bit more similar. Naturally, he would also have to be stronger than his sister.
So…he chose to be a big brown bear.
The big brown bear walked slowly, but it was strong enough to easily smash the wooden fence on Koala Island.
After Huo Ran went online, he rode a wooden boat to his sister’s island to do some small, harmless damage, left a few fruits as gifts before happily prancing his way home.
His small island would be sunny and basked in good weather for the next few days. Huo Ran planned to take the opportunity to renovate the house. The brown bear moved slowly, so he needed to allocate enough time for said renovation.
The time in-game was at a 1:1 ratio with the time in reality as Huo Ran played the game until 10 o’clock at night. When the island was completely dark, he went offline,planning to continue the next day.
It wasn’t until Sunday night that Huo Ran, who had devoted himself wholeheartedly, completed the difficult renovation work. Looking at the brand-new industrial-style house, Huo Ran took a few photos with satisfaction and posted them on the news feed.
[Activity] HR: It’s a loss to the industry that I didn’t become an architect //cute// [Picture][Picture][Picture]
Soon, people liked and responded to his post.
[Comment] Your Father: Vomit! How shameless!
[Comments] Shengsheng Buxi: Sir Huo is really amazing.
[Comment] Lu Yan: Ah Ran, you’re playing this too? Give me your ID number, I will add you.
[Comment] Zhizhu Changle replied to Your Father: What is up with your name?
[Comment] HR replies to Zhizhu Changle: Dad, look at how arrogant she is.
The interaction under the PP app’s feed could only be seen by mutual friends and Huo Ran liked this unique setting very much. Even if he added some unfamiliar people, he was not afraid of revealing his privacy.
His eyes were sore from continuous gazing at the computer for the past two days. Huo Ran glanced at the densely packed new comments that were flooding in and was about to close the webpage when he suddenly froze.
[Comment] Tao: A skylight can be opened on the roof; it will look better.
Huo Ran wanted to reply to the comment, but after a pause, he opened the chat window directly.
[HR: Doctor Tao, do you also play Animal Island?]
[HR: Oh, so the roof can be changed.]
[Tao: I played a lot before, but I didn’t expect it to be so popular now. ]
Immediately afterwards, Doctor Tao sent a few pictures.
Huo Ran opened it and found that it was also a screenshot of an animal island hut, which was very similar to the style he had painstakingly decorated. However, there was a big skylight on the roof. Filled with the sight of stars at night, against the dark grey and rough hut, there was a sudden vibe of rustic romance.
[HR: Looks good!]
[HR: Doctor Tao is amazing.]
[Tao: I didn’t have much to do back then, so I tried a number of different styles. If you want any of them as a point of reference, I’d be happy to provide them.]

Huo Ran, who was immersed in the halo of being a master architect, looked at the pictures sent by Doctor Tao and felt ashamed. He carefully studied the layout of the cabin and wanted to learn its ways and absorb the knowledge.
Then, he saw the half round brown figure that was reflected in the mirror. The spikes on the animal’s body glowed with silvery white light.
It turned out that Doctor Tao was a hedgehog.
Looking at the message sent by Doctor Tao again, Huo Ran belatedly thought that the trace of loneliness he noticed yesterday was probably not an illusion.
After being dazed for a while, Huo Ran sent a somewhat presumptuous message abruptly.
[HR: Is Doctor Tao always alone?]
Doctor Tao did not deny it and the tone of his reply was even very relaxed.
[Tao: Has my social fear attribute been discovered so quickly? 0.0]
With an inexplicable impulse in his heart, Huo Ran continued to ask.
[HR: Is it because you feel that you have nothing to talk about with the people you know, so you can’t become friends? ]
This time, there was a long interval before Doctor Tao sent a message.
[Tao: I just… have no sense of reality.]
