Wang Meng woke up slowly. He had fallen asleep while leaning against the iron gate.
He had tried countless ways to escape before falling asleep, even going so far as to try and get his father to help him. His father came over, but there was nothing he could do.
He even tried shooting the chain with the gun, but the modified gun’s power wasn’t strong enough to break the thick chain connecting the handcuffs together.
His position was very painful because at this height, he could neither squat down nor stand up straight.
At this time, he suddenly felt a very painful twinge in his lower abdomen. Even though he knew it was very indecent, he still urinated anyways.
After he was done relieving himself, he raised his head to check on his father—the older man was lying under one of the tables and seemed to have fallen asleep. Wang Meng could see that his lips were very chapped. Earlier, he had been asking his father to find something that could be used to open the gate, which must have consumed a lot of energy.
Those chapped lips were a symptom of dehydration. He looked at the gambling tables but didn’t see any water on them.
He knew that after a while, he’d have to poop. His bodily functions were always very healthy so there were bound to be more indecent situations later.
He would hold it back as long as he could. If he was lucky, he could hold back to the point of constipation and suffer less shame.
At this point in time, it had been one day since he refused to compromise. He hadn’t had a drop of water and he knew that his father was definitely in a worse state than him. The intense thirst and hunger were starting to make him face the reality of the situation they were in.
When he hung up the phone before, he didn’t really know what it was like to die of starvation or thirst. But now that he was starting to feel it, he began to wonder if he could bear it.
He had turned off the cell phone initially, but now he pressed his lips together and turned it back on, only to find that Baishe had made countless calls.
He tried calling back but found that his phone couldn’t connect to the other man’s Bluetooth.
Wang Meng thought for a while and came to the realization that he had made a big mistake.
During that period of time when the phone had been turned off, Baishe’s cell phone must have run out of power. This meant that he had missed the biggest opportunity to gain some information.
He remembered his boss’s words: emotions are ineffective.
Why couldn’t he be as calm as Boss? It was true that when he was being emotional at the time, he really wasn’t afraid of death. If he had starved to death at that very moment, then so be it, but now his burning stomach and chapped lips were making him very uncomfortable. This kind of discomfort seemed to shake the hatred in his heart.
It was easy to foresee that as the pain increased, the hatred in his heart would become less and less important.
He began to feel extremely anxious as the urge to poop continued to increase, only now realizing that it wouldn’t be dignified to die here like this.
When Wang Meng refused to compromise at that time, he had felt that he would never waver. In fact, he even wanted to smash the cell phone to pieces. But he never expected that his resolve would be shaken so quickly.
He needed to hate in order to persevere. He glanced at his father, still unwilling to convince the older man that his mother’s death had nothing to do with him, that he didn’t have to feel guilty, and that it was totally fine to gamble. But his inner hatred wasn’t as strong as it was before.
Give me something to fuel my hatred.
He thought about his mother, but her image was hazy in his mind. He clenched his teeth and tried to think harder—his mother only had him. He was the only one who could convey that kind of hatred on her behalf now.
Wang Meng suddenly smiled and glanced down at the pistol, realizing what he should do. He had used two bullets earlier, which meant that there were five bullets left.
The bullets could only be fired one round at a time, so he pointed the muzzle at his temple and found the right position.
Although the gun didn’t pack a big punch, it should still be able to penetrate the skull at such close range.
But first, he had to kill his father. Otherwise, he would suffer here as well.
Wang Meng slammed into the iron gate to wake his father up. When his father looked back at him in confusion, Wang Meng said to him, “Dad, come here.”
It took Wang Meng’s father a little time to understand what was going on, but when he finally walked to the iron gate, Wang Meng held the gun up to his father’s head.
His father didn’t understand what was going on, but all Wang Meng said to him was, “Don’t move or it’ll hurt a lot.”
His father looked at him without moving an inch. Wang Meng took a deep breath and poured all of his strength into his fingers.
“We’ll write it off all in one stroke! Our whole family has come to nothing!” Wang Meng roared before pulling the trigger.
<What Are They Doing 2022 Chapter 31><Table of Contents><What Are They Doing 2022 Chapter 33>
Here’s the current game plan guys:
1. Finish up “What are they doing” (11 chapters to go)
2. Finish up “Notes in Rain Village Part 3” (28 chapters to go)
3. Start on “Queen of the West’s Ghost Banquet” (henceforth
Restart Part V Post Restart Sequel Part III because idk what else to call the grouping of “Sea of Lights”, “Ten Thousand Mountains”, and this. If you all have any ideas, lemme know. “Operation: Rescue Xiao Hua and Black Glasses” seems kind of long hahahaha)
4. Heavenly Palace on the Clouds (ETA? Like never if this keeps up lol)

Wow, what a perfect plan, it’s exciting to know. The plan reminded me of those infinite floors. 😄
I Okay with whatever you decide. And Please take your time, your health is more important.💕
Poor Xiao Hua and Black Glasses, I can imagine Xiao Hua siting with crossed arms glaring and Black Glasses lying down and dozing.

Personally I’d just refer to the new books by their actual titles…? They’re not part of Restart at all so it’s kind of confusing to call them as such. I’m really excited for it – thank you!

Eh, if I did that, I’d have to restructure the tab on the site to 3 separate ones with each book name and fix like 160 chapter links and I’m not about that life 😂 I also hate reducing the titles down to their acronyms because it’s too hard to remember what’s what. Plus, all 3 go together. Maybe I can just rename the tab “Post-Restart Sequels” 🤔 Would that be better?

Ah, that’s not what I meant, sorry. The three clearly do form one narrative structure so I think it absolutely makes sense to group them on the same subpage/tab.
But right now they’re called Chongqi 3/4/5 on the Chinese side of the main page links and this is not what their Chinese titles are, and this is where calling them Restart gets really confusing as they’re a separate story.
I guess I didn’t realise what you needed the grouping name for. Is it the title to the subpage linking all the chapters? In that case… how about just shorten the titles to… Idk, “Sea of Lights/Ten Thousand Mountains/Ghost Banquet” as the page title and then just list the full names below the cover? (I’m assuming the issue is that the page title generates the page URL and therefore cannot be too long? Though the heihua story has a super long title too…)
This would really be easier if NPSS gave them an arc name, but alas.
Alright, I updated the table on the homepage so the raws reflect the pinyin, changed the menu tab to “Post Restart Sequels”, updated the header for the page itself, and updated the pdf/epub with that naming convention. I refuse to go through every post to figure out where I called them Restart Parts 3/4 and change them b/c ain’t nobody got time for that but if anyone has 2 brain cells to rub together, I’m sure they’ll figure it out 😂.
And yes, I totally agree. NPSS should do us all a favor and just give them a cool arc name 😤
I like post-restart sequels
