Wake up call

All through the whole life, we will get some ideas from friends or our parents in order to help us not to do something wrong. Maybe, the in-time call can indeed bring something useful to us and we will be appreciated by their behaviors because they are good for us. In a word, this kind of call is necessary for us and we will follow their ideas as soon as we can.Under my introduction, my best friend contact the net game because he is always owning a lot of spare time but does not know how to make use of them. At first, he refuses to adopt my view and persuades me not to waste some time to take part in that unreal world. However, he can not succeed to let me not to play the net game because I have been a old player at that time and I am not willing to give the game up because the game has become an important role in my life so that I can not live on without it.On seeing my response, he has nothing to do but to listen to my opinions that he should take part in the group with me. Finally, he is interested in the game and often shares his good ideas with me. In recent, he has been puzzled on the net game by the Scions Of Fate gold. Because he is a new member of the net game, he does not well in the game and usually is rushed out by other players. Hearing his question, I ask him for some details on the game then he tells me that he often gets some useless SOF gold that he can not do some tasks and lose much bleed. In order to avoid the same thing happening again, he entrusts his good friend to buy sof gold for him. However, he finds that another question that how to make good use of the Scions Of Fate money appears. After listening to his complaint, I make a decision that I should help him to solve such problems and invite him to my home after work. As a result, he is becoming a much stronger player in the net game and has a good command of the game. Besides, he is often invited by other members in the game. Yesterday, he sent me a lot of cheap SOF gold as the gift to thank me. Of course, I was very happy for the gift.
