Chapter 206: Three a.s.sa.s.sination List
Hearing this, everyone looked strangely at Lu Ze. What Lu Ze did in this war was outstanding, and even the Federal Times made a report about him. Everyone was curious about what the news was.
Old Derry said, “2nd Lieutenant Lu Ze is on the White Blade a.s.sa.s.sination List.”
Hearing this, the officers, Margaret, and the others looked at Lu Ze in disbelief.
Even Nangong Jing and the rest raised a brow in shock.
Only noobs like Lu Ze and Lin Ling, who didn’t know what the White Blade a.s.sa.s.sination List was, didn’t know how to react.
Lu Ze scratched his head. “What is the White Blade a.s.sa.s.sination List?”
Nangong Jing explained, “White Blade a.s.sa.s.sination List, Blood Blade a.s.sa.s.sination List, and Black Blade a.s.sa.s.sination List are the three a.s.sa.s.sination lists of the blade demon race. They are created to eliminate the people who pose a great threat to their race.”
“White Blade a.s.sa.s.sination List usually targets prodigies who were at the middle stage of aperture opening state and above or young duke candidate level. The Blood Blade a.s.sa.s.sination List targets young duke level prodigies while Black Blade a.s.sa.s.sination List targets prodigies at the planetary state and above.”
Nangong Jing grinned. “You’re not even at aperture opening state yet, and you’re already on the White Blade a.s.sa.s.sination List. It seems Sisiliya really hates you. Hehe.”
Lu Ze: “…”
Seeing how Nangong Jing was laughing, Lu Ze didn’t feel so good.
This alcoholic was still laughing?!
Seeing how pitiful and helpless he was, she could still laugh!
Margaret glanced strangely at Jian Shaoning before patting the lifeless Lu Ze. “I understand you, really, I can.”
Lu Ze turned around to look at Margaret, feeling touched.
Margaret smiled. “I’m ranked 3284th on the White Blade a.s.sa.s.sination List. How is it? I’ll protect you!”
Lu Ze: “???”
Was it something joyful to be a.s.sa.s.sinated?
Jian Shaoning smiled. “It is not a big deal to become a part of the a.s.sa.s.sination list. Inside the Federation, at most, only mortal evolution state blade demons would be able to get in. Even if they’re inside the federal domain, it’s very dangerous, and they’re easily exposed. They would usually choose to hunt a greater target. Just be careful on the battlefield, and don’t get caught by a planetary state. Then, you’re pretty much fine.”
Lu Ze didn’t feel Jian Shaoning was comforting him.
Even if an aperture opening state at the middle stage level came, his life would be over.
Lu Ze felt he was in quite some danger.
Jian Shaoning said, “By the way, I’m on the White Blade a.s.sa.s.sination List too, ranked 3288th.”
Jian Shaoning seemed prideful as though being on there was something amazing.
Lu Ze didn’t want to say anything anymore. He just wanted some peace.
Lin Ling and the others exchanged glances among each other and didn’t know what to say.
Nangong Jing laughed. “Those on the a.s.sa.s.sination list are prodigies that are perceived as great threats to the blade demons. This includes military merit and talent—for example, prodigy martial artist, prodigy commander, or others. Usually, those higher on the White Blade a.s.sa.s.sination List are considered greater threats to the blade demon race and are more useful to the human race.”
“The human race also has a list that targets blade demons. It is called Demon Hunting List. You’ll know about it in the future.”
Lu Ze realized something. No wonder Margaret and Jian Shaoning were prideful. Did blade demons use this list to judge their talents and merits?
Was it a trend to be on the white blade a.s.sa.s.sination list for young prodigies?
They probably all wanted to get on there.
Should he be happy himself?
Then, Nangong Jing frowned. “But Lu Ze you’re different. Your combat power is too weak. Other prodigies have protection measures for a.s.sa.s.sinations, but you…”
“If any blade demons on the middle stage of aperture opening state appeared, you probably won’t be able to get away, right?
Lu Ze’s body stiffened. She was right. His real combat power was far from the prodigies like Margaret. If someone came to a.s.sa.s.sinate him, it was really easy for him to die.
She looked at old Derry. “Old Derry, what is Lu Ze’s rank?”
Old Derry’s face became even stranger. “3280.”
Everyone was shocked again, especially Margaret and Jian Shaoning.
Lu Ze only went to one battle, and his rank was higher than theirs??
They thought Lu Ze would rank between 4000 to 5000!
Margaret’s face went red as she just bragged about this to Lu Ze.
She looked at Lu Ze. “This isn’t right! Why is junior schoolmate Lu Ze’s rank higher than mine?”
Nangong Jing smiled. “This does seem normal, considering all that he did and how he’s only 18.”
Nangong Jing was surprised herself too. She had only taken this kid over from planet Lan Jiang for how many days?
And he did all this. Could he settle for a while?
Everyone understood after Nangong Jing explained.
After all, a base meant tens of thousands of soldiers, and the fees for building a base, as well as the resources they lost during this period, and the spirit metal mine.
It’s said that two aperture opening states died in Lu Ze’s hands too.
Yet, this guy was only 18!
Lu Ze’s heart skipped a beat after hearing his rank.
Oh G.o.d, he was done for!
He was ranked higher than senior schoolmate Margaret. If someone came to a.s.sa.s.sinate him, it would be at least her level.
Her power was at the tertiary state of aperture opening state now!
Thinking about this, Lu Ze felt cold. This wasn’t too good.
While Lu Ze was distressed, Old Derry also frowned.
He was planning to send Lu Ze into Gui Yuping’s team to do missions.
But now, it didn’t seem suitable at all.
It was even more impractical to send Lu Ze to do missions with Margaret and the others.
Old Derry found this to be troublesome and so did Nangong Jing.
She promised Uncle Merlin she would take care of this kid, but he ended up on the White Blade a.s.sa.s.sination List the first time he went to battle.
When the blade demon army arrived, she wouldn’t be able to do much.
Nangong Jing’s eyes flashed and she slowly said, “Kid, there’s half a month until the entrance test finishes, but you have finished early. It’s too dangerous for you to join the battle. You can go back to the HQ.”
Lu Ze’s mouth spasmed. “Then, what about my upcoming military merit?”
It was going to be a huge battle. Lu Ze wanted more federal contribution points!
That was money! Lu Ze’s heart ached.
Seeing this, Nangong Jing clenched her fists and showed a warm smile to Lu Ze. “I think there’s something wrong with your brain. I’ll help you fix it.”
Did this kid not know about the situation he was in?
Did he value money over his own life?
Seeing this, Lu Ze s.h.i.+vered and cold sweat appeared on his forehead.
He shook his head. “I think my brain suddenly works now. I don’t need to trouble Teacher Nangong. You still need to fight a war. You should rest well.”
Everyone looked strangely at Lu Ze. They finally knew the other side of Lu Ze.
