Meanwhile, in her home, Georgie Clementine was going through the Heroes Assemble forum in her study. Everyone was discussing her wedding with Cloud Piercer that was soon taking place.
Some people wished them well, while others said crude things out of jealousy. Many insulted Cloud Piercer.
Countless low-level accounts were trying to get people riled up in the forum by saying that Cloud Piercer’s company in the real world actually went bankrupt and that he was in a terrible financial position. Their basis for this was that Cloud Piercer hadn’t spent a lot of money in the game.
Although the rumor seemed fake right away, a lot of people fell for it. Under this post, many people commented about how sorry they felt for Georgie.
“D*mn. I feel so bad for Extraordinary Geo. I thought she was going to get married to a rich tycoon in the game. I thought this would have a happy ending like Cinderella and Prince Charming, but the fairytale had ended before it even began.”
“To be honest, Cloud Piercer really hasn’t been spending much these days. He used to make a lot of purchases in the game nearly every day. I really believe this piece of information, and I feel sorry for Extraordinary Geo.”
“She’s been trying to seduce Cloud Piercer for so long. I bet she was doing it for his money. Now that this man’s suddenly gone bankrupt, wouldn’t she feel very sad? I feel so sorry for her. Hahaha. It’s terrible.”
Georgie felt extremely depressed from reading through these negative comments in the forum. She turned it off and shifted her gaze back to the game.
In the game, she and Cloud Piercer had just arrived in front of the God of Love. Since it was Cloud Piercer’s wedding, many people gathered around. It seemed as if nearly all the players in this server were here.
The chat space in the vicinity was being spammed.
“Congratulations, Cloud Piercer! I feel very envious of Extraordinary Geo.”
“What’s there to feel envious about? I heard Cloud Piercer has already gone bankrupt in reality. He’ll probably never be able to spend in the game anymore.”
“Cloud Piercer, is it true that your family went bankrupt? If things are that bad, how are you still in the mood to play with your girl here?”
“Congratulations, Cloud Piercer and Extraordinary Geo! I doubt the god-like player has gone bankrupt. I’m really envious.”
Georgie ignored all the depressing messages around her.
Right then, a message appeared on her computer screen. “Cloud Piercer has sent you a mail.”
She clicked on the button to open the mail. Inside, there was a set of top-tier godly equipment. On top of that, there was a limited- edition wedding dress, as well as 10,000,000 gold bars and 10,000,000 gold coins. The top-tier godly equipment cost at least 200,000 gold coins. Meanwhile, the wedding dress was equally expensive. In the game’s shop, it had a price tag of 888,888 gold coins.
In real money terms, 10,000,000 gold bars were equivalent to 100,000 dollars. Likewise, 10,000,000 gold coins were also equal to 100,000 dollars.
Right then, a lot of zeroes appeared in Georgie’s mind. This man was far more generous than she had ever thought. Georgie was suddenly dumbfounded.
Was he trying to put the people around him to shame in such a way?
“What do you mean by this?” Extraordinary Geo asked in the team chat.
“Consider it a betrothal gift,” Cloud Piercer answered.
Extraordinary Geo was speechless. She immediately clicked on the button to return the gifts to him…
These items cost too much. Georgie didn’t think it was right to accept such items of value from someone she met on the internet. However, a notification appeared in the game. Georgie was informed that she couldn’t return the items in the mail due to the other player’s settings in the game. Clearly, Cloud Piercer had intentionally blocked all mails so that she couldn’t return the gifts to him.
“Must you do this?” Extraordinary Geo asked.
“My bride must wear the best clothes on the server…” Cloud Piercer said.
“Turn on the mail function,” Extraordinary Geo said.
“I won’t do it…” Cloud Piercer replied.
