The white-clothed man sat underneath the willow tree holding a guxin, his floating sleeves adding an aura of otherworldliness…Wei Wei’s shock wasn’t due to the fact that the white-clothed man looked very handsome. Of course, he looked very handsome, but the white-clothed musician avatar wasn’t all that rare in the game.” (3)
