Chapter 1016: My Talent Is Too Good
Three days later, Lu Ze and the girls were sitting in their room.
Lu Ze’s fourth star ring had crumbled and turned into stardust, which then moved towards the border of his cells and formed part of the planets.
With the infusion of spirit force, the stardust expanded. It signified Lu Ze’s extensive improvement.
After a long time, the stardust reformed into dim planets.
The invisible wave was no longer present when Lu Ze opened his eyes. Right then, the spirit flames inside of him ignited.
He breathed out and let out a smile. Finally, he reached level-4 cosmic system state.
Once he got out of his bed, he stretched his body.
Back in the living room, Qiuyue Hesha and Nangong Jing were glaring at each other. As usual, they might have been quarreling.
Without fail, Ying Ying was back to watching her cartoon program as she was stuck between the two. She wasn’t even fazed by the arguments around her.
In the direction of the kitchen, it sounded as though Alice and the rest of the girls were preparing their meal.
Nangong Jing and Qiuyue Hesha looked over.
Nangong Jing grinned “Did you complete a breakthrough?”
Lu Ze smirked and confirmed it with a nod. He went to the couch. Unfortunately, when he was about to sit, someone knocked on the door.
Lu Ze went to open it this time. Zuoqiu Xunshuang was on the other side.
“Aunty Xunshuang, h.e.l.lo?”
He quickly let her inside. She then went straight for the sofa and pinched Ying Ying’s face. “I came to notify you about our departure. We are about to return.”
Nangong Jing asked, “Go back to which planet? To Shenwu?”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang nodded. “Yes, the Shenwu Army has essentially placed all the planets of the Blade Demon Race under their control. There is no reason for us to still guard this place.”
Qiuyue Hesha frowned. “But what about the other races who might be lurking?”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang maintained a smile. “Lu Ze took care of everything. After displaying his cosmic cloud state combat power, those ordinary races wouldn’t dare to mess with the Human Race. We don’t have to worry about superior races either. After all, their territories are located away from here. The chances of them creating a conflict over the blade demon territory are low. Everything is settled.”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang continued, “Of course, at very least, one cosmic system state should watch over the region. However, now is not the time. We need to return due to something else.”
The group was taken aback. “What is it?”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang curved the corners of her lips mysteriously. “The elders are about to make a breakthrough.”
Everyone was astounded.
Nangong Jing questioned, “The old man is going to complete a breakthrough? Wouldn’t it be…”
Zuoqiu Xunshuang nodded. “Yes, the elders disclosed that they would become cosmic cloud states within a month.”
Cosmic cloud states!
If the four elders successfully raised their cultivation level, the Human Race would have four more cosmic cloud states!
In contrast with the other races with cosmic cloud states, humans were considered the weakest. However, it would be a different story when compared to cosmic system state civilizations. This time, the Human Race was invincible against the rest.
Lu Ze didn’t expect the sudden s.h.i.+ft in their cultivation level. But then again, it wasn’t actually questionable. In just half a year, the elders also reached the peak of the cosmic system state previously. Even if their foundation was inferior to Lu Ze’s, it still wouldn’t take them long to attain a breakthrough.
Lu Ze urged, “Let’s return quickly.”
Their breakthrough was the most important thing as of this moment.
Even protecting the blade demon territory wasn’t as significant as producing four cosmic cloud states.
In order to return, the fleet entered the warp dimension.
Four days later, everyone reached their destination.
Before anything else, the elders handed out the resources to the other races pursuant to their established agreement.
Accordingly, the Barbarian Race had the largest share, while the Winged Race was not far behind. As for the Round Race, they received the least portion because they only managed to provide a level-8 cosmic system state.
Even so, the quant.i.ty was already substantial despite being the last. Hence, all the parties had no complaints.
At the same time, the Human Race organized a celebration. Eventually, the other three races returned to their territories.
Before leaving though, Man Kun and the others reminded Lu Ze and his group to visit whenever they can. They promised to treat them generously to food if they did.
Lu Ze immediately expressed his keen interest.
After their allies had departed, the Human Race settled down.
The Shenwu Army began to focus on its tasks. The soldiers need to deal with the reinforcements, mobilizations, and defense mechanisms with respect to blade demon territory.
Naturally, there weren’t any issues when they only had to protect the human territory. With the sudden expansion involving the blade demon territory, the number of enlisted soldiers wasn’t sufficient.
Still, with the corresponding increase in resources, the Shenwu Army acquired the capability to provide more benefits. Hence, numerous powerful adventurers were incentivized to join the Shenwu Army.
Having considered everything, the military could barely keep up with the developments.
Lu Ze took out some red and purple orbs. He gave them to Elder Nangong in order to serve as a reward for star state soldiers who performed well this time.
The orbs were greatly beneficial for star states.
In the past year, Zuoqiu Xunshuang reached the peak of the star state.
The red orbs were immensely precious and rare. However, the current supply was only enough for tens of people. As a result, the selection became stringent. Character prevailed over everything.
It wasn’t necessary that orbs should be given to the most talented ones. Anyway, their function was to improve an individual’s talent.
Lu Ze believed that soon, the Human Race would have dozens more cosmic system states.
By then, it can be considered an actual increase in the power of the Human Race.
During this time, the excuse Lu Ze used to explain the existence of the herbs was his supposed master once again.
Three days later, the elders began their solitary cultivation.
In the resting room of the cultivation building, Margaret, Li Qingyun, Eldon, Yan Gu, Shadora, Xia Zhi, and Ji Cheng were all present. Naturally, Lu Ze and the girls were also nearby.
Lu Ze asked, “Um, you guys know that my master is unparalleled, right?”
Yan Gu questioned, “… Are you showing off now, Junior Lu Ze?”
Lu Ze scratched his head. “My master handed out a lot of resources to me. My talent is exceptional already while my breakthrough rate is unmatched, so I have some leftover resources here. Perhaps you can make use of them.”
The crowd before him could be deemed talented prodigies. They were rather upright as well.
Did he just practically say he is too talented and had so many resources to spare!?
Yan Gu grinned. “In that case, they shouldn’t be wasted. Don’t worry, Junior Lu Ze, we will use them well!”
The others nodded in unison.
